Bernie Glieberman

Bernard "Bernie" Glieberman is President and sole shareholder of Crosswinds Communities, Inc. Bernie, well known for creativity and innovation in building, has devoted 50 years to the commercial, industrial and residential building business. He has been responsible for construction of more than 10,000 homes throughout the United States.

Born and raised in Detroit, Bernie is a third-generation builder. He began his career by managing his family's properties when he was 17, shortly after his father's untimely death. He ran the business during the day, while taking night college classes in accounting and business.

At 21, he was made a full partner in a Detroit residential/commercial development and property management firm. Ten years later, Bernie bought out his partner's shares and expanded into the building business. In 1971, he established Crosswinds Communities, Inc. and moved into developing subdivisions, modular homes and industrial projects throughout urban and suburban areas of southeastern Michigan.

He continued his focus on building affordable housing, with developments in Michigan, North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, California and Arizona. Many of his communities today are also geared toward first-time home buyers looking for an urban living experience.

Throughout his career, Bernie has earned numerous awards for his communities, home designs and landscaping.

Bernie is a tireless advocate for the building industry. He serves on the board of directors of the National Association of Home Builders, is a former president and a 30-year member of the BIA and is currently a board member of Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies policy advisory board and the Michigan Housing Trust Fund.

His outside interests include a collection of classic and antique cars, as well as being involved in numerous community activities.
