Custom Home Builder and Energy Rater

Luis Imery, founder of Imery Group, has made a name for himself as a building science enthusiast — a effort that has won him several awards for sustainable building construction.

With a innate desire to shape, build and expand communities, Luis first earned a degree as a Civil Engineer in 1996. That strong foundation paved the way for his illustrious career as a home designer, home builder and innovator of the entire home building process, including development, energy performance evaluation and real estate broker.

His passion for learning and acquiring immense knowledge led to an MBA from the Terry College of Business in 2003, with a concentration in Real Estate and Entrepreneurship. From there Luis applied his studies by developing a new strategic approach to building projects &mdash getting into the sustainable and home performance industry.

Recognizing that the green trend was growing across industries, Luis believed there was a better way to build and develop communities. He decided to learn as much as possible about sustainable building science and started Imery Group in 2009 with a mission to promote energy efficient custom home building and home energy rating practices.

Today, Luis is a renowned expert in the field typically building quality homes 15 years ahead of current energy code. Luis has also received his HERS rater, BA with BPI, EarthCraft TA and LEED for Home designations, among others.

In Addition, Luis continues to consult for a group of private investors in the Athens-Atlanta, Georgia area, performing market research, feasibility studies, and land acquisition negotiations. He understands all aspects of real estate development and has a successful record as a project manager that is evidenced by his long-lasting relationship with top performers in the industry.
