With a degree in Business Administration and 10 years experience in the corporate world, Barbara joined the Chiusano Group of Companies in 1980. Chiusano was a family-owned company that built thousands of homes and apartments in the South Jersey area since the 1950’s. In 2000, along with her business partner and brother, she and Jim founded their own residential building company, C&C Development Company, L.L.C. continuing a family tradition in home building that began in the 1930’s.
Since first working with the Chiusano Group, Barbara has been involved with more than 19 new home communities ranging from custom homes, homes for first-time homebuyers, multi-family and apartments. Thirty-years of experience has given Barbara extensive knowledge in all facets of real estate and residential building including initial planning, construction, financing, property management, marketing strategies, customer relations and overall general business operations.

An active member of both organizations, she is a life member of the New Jersey Builders Association’s Board of Directors and has twice served as President of the Builder’s League of South Jersey. Her long-term efforts have earned her such awards as NJBA’s Builder of the Year, Builder Hall of Fame and Builder Continuing Service Awards.
