I began my career in 1973.

Let me explain.

TRAIN A BOY IN THE WAY,
HE SHOULD GO. EVEN
WHEN HE GROWS OLD
HE WILL NOT DEPART
FROM IT.

- Proverbs 22:6
"Work. Work. Work."

THE EARLY DAYS

Somewhere we have a picture of me at the age of 2.  Yeah, yeah, we all do.  This one is different though.  I’m tied with a rope to a chimney while my dad did roofing work.  I wanted to be working right next to him.  Around the same time I received my first nail pouch complete with a a wooden hammer.  Yes, that is actually me in the picture you see here.  I immediately started following my dad around chanting “Work ,work, work”.  Yeah, I’m sure that didn’t get old… really fast.

Things picked up pace from there.  I was quickly learning the trades.  Around the age of 9 my dad taught me to use his 12″ Sears Craftsman Radial Arm Saw.  Say what?!  Yep.  But hear me out.  The first 8 years of my life he routinely hauled my butt up to Sutersville Lumber.  There he made sure I had plenty of facetime (not Face Time) with “Lefty”.  “Lefty” had removed most of the fingers from his left hand with a radial arm saw of similar vintage.  To this day I can still see his hand, or what was left of it…  Excellent lesson Dad.

I have immense awe and gratitude for my father allowing his young son to learn to use that beast of a machine.  It was a couple of years before I finally was allowed to use the shaping bits you could put on the spindle end.  Think wood chipper with no guard, shroud or safety bar.  It was crazy loud and scary.

CAREER

Most summers and evenings through high school were spent working construction (with a little hunting, fishing and dirt bike riding in between).  Picture jobs like re-roofing 3 story homes without fall protection, removing asbestos siding without a respirator, changing electrical services.  Live electrical service.  I cringe to think of my time cleaning chimneys on 3 story slate roofs, on the side of hills in November, in the freezing rain as it got darker and darker.  “Chim, chimney, Chim, chim, cher-ee” was not for me.  Whilst a senior in high school I started my own remodeling business.  People hired me.  Crazy I know.  Today we can’t even hire kids to cut our lawn without breaking a child labor law.  Let’s not get started on that topic…  After getting married, very young (I still think my wife broke a law or two there somewhere), I moved to the “big city” of Erie, PA and started working in commercial construction.  Framing third shift in Erie, in the winter, as a newlywed.  Let the good times roll.

After years of development work, production homes and then custom homes along Lake Erie, we decided it was time for a change.  Fast forward to North Carolina.  We felt like we were finally home as we eventually settled in the South Brunswick Island area of beautiful North Carolina.  We spent almost two decades there building some of the nicest homes for even nicer clients.  As a residential/commercial builder we handled new projects, large and small, as well as major renovations, additions and upfits.

Enter the global pandemic.  And upper middle age.  In 2020 we decide to follow our hearts to the mountains of Western North Carolina.  That was going to be no small feat relocating a successful custom home business.  So if you are going to make a change, why not do it big time!  We closed up shop on the coast and headed to the mountains.  Now instead of building custom homes for awesome clients, I am focusing on helping awesome clients buy and sell real estate.  As a North Carolina Real Estate Broker with over 30 years of construction experience, I admittedly offer a unique skill set to my clients.  If you ever thought how great it would be to have a builder as your real estate broker… Here I am.  Just be ready to laugh and have fun doing it.  You’ll see.

BE TRUE TO YOUR WORK,
YOUR WORD,
YOUR FRIEND.

- Henry David Thoreau
One of many award winning homes we built.
Yes, I know. She is my better half.

THE TIME IS ALWAYS RIGHT
TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT.

- Martin Luther King, JR
Surround yourself with like-minded friends.
The couple that volunteers together...

VOLUNTEER WORK

We also dedicate untold hours to volunteer work.  This includes a variety of activities.  Near and dear to our heart is the work we do building houses of worship, here and abroad.  We also have been blessed to aid in several missions of disaster relief work.  Most recently we’ve been able to dedicate our free time training other volunteers in the safe use and practice of a number of construction disciplines.

Currently we are helping coordinate the training efforts for hundreds in over a dozen different disciplines.  These include supported scaffold installation, electrical safety, respirator use, fall protection, scissor and boom lift operation, confined space training as well as powder and gas actuated tool use, etc.  Lock-Out/Tag-Out operations are second nature now.  We routinely get to use several Hilti and Ramset tools. the 3M 7500 series respirator.  Herc Equipment Rental has supplied us with a steady stream of JLG, SkyJack and Genie scissor lifts.  Are we having fun? – Absolutely!  Are we helping to keep our fellow man safe – We hope and pray so.



THE SPACE WITHIN BECOMES THE REALITY OF THE BUILDING

- Frank Lloyd Wright

During the last 35 years I’ve been fortunate enough to build beautiful buildings that became homes.  And I’ve been even more blessed to build friendships.  That is far surpassing in value.

BUY. SELL. BUILD.

BUY

Do you want an advocate to guide you through the buying process?  Not just keeping all the paperwork neat and organized.  I mean things that an honest builder friend will point out to you.  Over three decades in the business has equipped me with a unique set of skills.  Let me use those skills to help you buy your next place.

SELL

You only get one chance to make a first impression.  Over the years we have been fortunate enough to win numerous local and state awards for our craftsmanship, features and design.  How does that affect you?  We learned a few things over the years about first impressions.  I can help you make that first impression the best it can be.

BUILD

There are bajillion things to think about and do when deciding to build a home.  I’ve built homes for clients who were states away and countries away.  Successfully.  Sometimes it’s nice to know you have a trusted friend to lean on and to bounce ideas off of.  I can help in a variety of ways.  Let’s talk about your unique situation.

Trust

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.” – Albert Einstein

You need to trust your broker.  And your broker needs to trust you.  If either of you don’t, then it’s time to find someone you do.  Life is too short for anything else.  I’ve built homes and handled client relationships, both long distance and short distance, for over 30 years now.  Here are what just a few of my clients have to say about how I handled their assets and trust.  I will do the same for you.

"Blue Sky built our home on Holden Beach in 2011 and we count ourselves fortunate to have worked with such talented and genuinely good people. From the very beginning, Luke and Sandy instilled confidence that we were in good hands. The pride that they both clearly have in their work and the value that they place on their clients is always apparent. The organization and transparency that Luke and Sandy provide to their clients from a cost, schedule and approach perspective is very telling of their integrity. By being forthcoming with our options and decisions being made to build our home, Luke gave us confidence that they were looking out for our best interests and we did not have to second guess ourselves about whether we were asking the right questions or enough questions. Luke, Sandy and their team supported us throughout the process and helped us through the design and build process so that in the end, we had a beautiful, high-quality and well-built home backed by the Blue Sky team. To this day, we still reach out to Luke when we have questions or need help with the house and he is always there for us. We would in a heartbeat do this all again with Luke and Sandy!"

"Blue Sky was simply exceptional. We had a very tight deadline that took a lot of effort to hit our date. Not only did they make it happen, but they performed professionally and within our budget. They accommodated our every request, delivered a truly beautiful home and their communication was constant - especially important since we were out of town and needed far too many questions answered. The result is a beautiful home, already filled with wonderful memories with friends and family. Please note that we interviewed a half dozen builders before choosing Blue Sky. Also important to mention is their follow up AFTER our home was built - they have been there for us after the finished product and that has been HUGE. If you are going to build, choose these folks, their quality is meticulous, their teamwork is exceptional and the end product is stellar."

"Having built 3 homes previously my wife and I had a lot of experience working with General Contractors. The decision to let Blue Sky build our beachfront home was one of the best choices we have ever made. The forward thinking and mostly the wonderful attention to detail was beyond comparison. Luke was far more critical of imperfect or incorrect work than we could ever be. But the experience goes far beyond the job to a great comradeship and quality relationship that is rare in his field. Building a home is a complicated process and opinions and feelings can differ dramatically. That was never an issue with how we worked our way to the final solution. We would VERY highly recommend Blue Sky to anyone looking for great craftsmanship with great people."

"Luke with Blue Sky is one in a million when it comes to home building contractors. I have built five houses with five different contractors, and Blue Sky is by far the best I have ever worked with. From the very first day we met with Luke, we knew we had made the right decision. His attention to detail, concern for doing things the right way, and his attentiveness to our needs was extraordinary. In addition, the subcontractors that Luke uses are all exceptionally skilled people and very down to earth and friendly. In summary, Luke is the consummate professional and also a very friendly, caring person. Not only am I proud to say he was the contractor on my home, but I am proud to say that while going through the home building experience with him, he has become my friend."

"Blue Sky Building Company and Luke and Sandy Perisich was the builder of our home which was completed on June 21st, 2013. They were fantastic to work with and flexible to our needs in every way possible. Their focus is on quality not quantity, so you feel you are getting the personal attention you need when making this large of an investment. They understand they are building a home for your family, not just a ‘house’. With this in mind, they ensure you are satisfied each step of the way so the end result is something you are proud of. They hire quality subcontractors who also pay attention to detail and are always courteous and professional. One of the best experiences was the services offered to help decorate your home from their professional staff. Chantelle is a professional who knows her trade and first takes into account what you are trying to accomplish before she makes recommendations. She helps guide you thru interior choices that need to be made in your home. The end result was a beautiful home, completed on budget, on time. Finally, we had an open house for neighbors and friends. One of them is a Real Estate agent and her comment upon entering was, “This is the most beautiful home I have ever been in”. Enough said!"

Blue Sky was great to work with through out the project. I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone who wants a quality built home."

"Blue Sky Building Company are leaders in the home building industry. We have a decorative painting company and have worked with many different building companies through the years. We have had the opportunity to work with Blue Sky on quite a few projects. Blue Sky Building is masterful in their approach to building homes. Their design aesthetic is unique, they pay close attention to detail, are extremely professional, organized, and I have never seen a building company finish a project ahead of time as often as they do. They have amazing time management and obviously have a strong desire to meet their clients needs. I am always honored to work in their gorgeous homes."

"Blue Sky built an incredible home for us. They are extremely customer focused. During the entire build process we felt like "family" with the attention the entire team gave to us. During construction they were very flexible in altering the original plans to maximize space ,function and design within the home. Attention to detail is foremost on their minds.The project was completed on time and exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Blue Sky to anyone wanting to build a quality home in the Brunswick County area."

"I know Luke and Sandy's operation well as their safety consultant and safety trainer and I have been in the construction industry for over thirty years. Their entire operation from front office to men on the job is absolutely first rate. One does not see this type of attention to detail very often. Veterans in construction know a home has a "feel" to it when they walk into it during any phase of construction, a "solidity" if you will, and having been on Blue Sky jobs during all phases I can tell you this: You will NOT find a higher-quality builder in construction today. Add to that the fact that their employees and subcontractors are all safety trained on a regular basis and you have the makings of a designer and builder you can give your total confidence. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to build."

"We called on Blue Sky to design and build a screen room addition to our 5 year old home. our primary reason was to have the ability to eat outside without the mosquitos making us their meal! Living on a golf course we wanted to take full advantage of our views over the water to the eighth green so we hoped for large windows and a feeling of openness and not a closed in space. Working with Blue Sky from start to finish has been a great experience.They took on our project even though this was outside of their primary scope of work which is the construction of beautiful custom homes. They had just completed a fantastic 4000 sq ft home in our. community and we didn't even look beyond them to do this work for us. From start to finish they worked professionaly and with exceptional attention to detail, Everyone associated with Blue Sky is top notch. Staff and subs are highly qualified and on top of their game. We had several hurdles to cross with our review process during the design phase. But Blue Sky worked seemlessly with our property development committee and all went well. We delight in enjoying our new escape each and everyday. It has already in a few months paid for itself in just a few months. We are very happy!"

"Luke at Blue Sky built our house. Our expectations for a quality build were high. Having built a smart house meant that we had numerous initial questions about its detailed design and how things worked. Of great importance to us upon moving in: we never had to wonder where Luke was. He was always readily available and communicative either in person, by phone or email. And of paramount importance, Luke included subject matter experts when they were required; ever increasing his depth of knowledge about all aspects of his trade and more importantly, making sure we were satisfied. Perhaps the best reference we can present is this: Luke would be the person we would hire if we ever were to build another house. Bottom line: we were absolutely delighted with the house."

Thanks Luke for fulfilling our vision for our cozy cottage, and making it better than we ever expected!"
