About Us

Tradition, Pride, and Honesty run deep at Pride Mark Homes.  These are the core values and strong work ethics that drove James R. Barbato to create Pride Mark in Rochester, New York in 1972.  James focused on creating quality homes in beautiful neighborhoods throughout many communities in our area. Pride Mark established a presence as a quality Rochester homebuilder in the single family marketplace.  That strong foundation is at the heart of every home we build today.

In 2006, Pride Mark was transferred into the hands of his son James P. Barbato, and the two continue to work side by side today.  Jim grew up on the job site and formed an appreciation for hard work while on a framing crew for his father.

Jim graduated in 1995 from the University of Buffalo with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, and earned his Executive MBA from Simon Business School in 2008.

Building through change

Jim continues to carry the values that his father instilled in him while adapting homebuilding to the evolving needs of our community.  Pride Mark Homes has become a complete general contracting company. Building apartments, light commercial, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. Our single family homes, patio homes, and townhomes continue to be the backbone of the company. The Barbato’s have developed over 20 neighborhoods and built more than 1500 homes. Each project is unique, but the superior quality and craftsmanship that our customers have grown accustomed to remains strong.


Our dedicated team at Pride Mark is a vital part of our success.  This group of highly skilled, motivated professionals is devoted to our customers from start to finish. From planning to delivery, our employees and subcontractors work as a team.
