Bogdan MaksimchukPrincipal / Owner

Bogdan Maksimchuk has been working in the construction industry for more than 20 years and has extensive knowledge in building homes.  Born in the Ukraine, he began his life-long passion at only 15 years old as a brick setter for a local builder in his home town of Lutsk.  In 1997 Bogdan moved with his family to the US and shortly thereafter started his own siding business.  In 2003 Bogdan became a  licensed general contractor, and in 2009 founded Benjamin Custom Homes – now Barcelo Homes – and has been building cutting-edge small and large scale housing projects in the Seattle area ever since.  Bogdan’s emphasis on integrity, great service and providing quality healthy homes at affordable prices has been, and continues to be, the keys to his success.   Using the finest sustainable materials and newest building techniques, Bogdan’s goal is to build energy efficient, quality homes that meet his standard for livability – a home he himself would live in comfortably. Bogdan views building homes as more than just a job; it is a passion.  He loves his craft and continues to be the point-person on all his jobs.

Danny dove straight into the high tech industry right out of college during the beginning of the dot com era and became one of the most successful local colocation internet service providers in the Seattle area. After several years of success even through the dot bomb era Danny and his business partners decided that it was the right time to sell the company and move onto the next business venture.

That venture turned out to be a career in real estate where his quest to be an expert in the field has lead him to doing work in the appraisal field, renovating homes, consulting and testing high performance energy homes for new construction builders, finding land for developer and builders, as well as providing white glove VIP service to all his real estate clients who are either buying or selling real estate.

When Danny is not doing real estate related work, you might find him on the ski slopes, coaching basketball, salsa dancing or taking a hot yoga class.
