NexMetro and its affiliated companies have been developing Avilla Homes neighborhoods with great success since 2010. These specialized Class A homes incorporate the perfect blend of a single-family feel with multi-family functionality.

With more than 4,000 homes completed, under construction, or in due diligence, NexMetro’s roots are in Arizona but the company is growing quickly with expansion planned along the entire Sunbelt region of the U.S.
