“The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army or in an office.”-
Dwight D Eisenhower
Eric Linthicum is a native Phoenician and a leader in the luxury construction industry. The Linthicum name has long been associated with construction excellence and Eric continues that tradition today. Under his leadership and direction, Linthicum has built a portfolio of world class projects second to none in its marketplace. Included are projects on the Big Island of Hawaii, the Island of Kauai, the Deserts and High Sierras of California, and throughout Arizona. In these markets, Eric has directly overseen over $600 Million worth of construction with a mix of luxury residential, five star resort, golf clubhouse and public amenity projects. Notable examples include the Silverleaf Club and Spa, Mii amo Spa at the Enchantment Resort, Chiricahua and Apache Clubhouses at Desert Mountain, The Mirabel Club, The Hideaway Club and many nationally published custom homes.
In 2001, Eric’s desire to expand his resume brought him to the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, where he became licensed and active in the local Hawaiian construction industry, a feat not easily done by contractors from the mainland. He commuted to the Big Island weekly for over three years while he built two very high end custom residences on the beach at the exclusive and internationally recognized private community of Kukio. Following the completion of his work at Kukio, Linthicum was hired by Alexander and Baldwin / DMB Associates to build their luxury resort core in the new private golf community of Kukui `ula on the South Shore of Kauai. This project totaled in excess of $100 Million on the most remote Island in the Pacific. Due to its complexity, Eric relocated himself and his family fulltime to Kauai where they lived for three years until the project’s successful completion. This experience became invaluable to Eric and in many ways, shapes the way he builds today.
Back in Arizona, Eric is now focused on select projects by clients and architects who are passionate about creating highly designed and extremely well crafted places. Still active in both the residential and luxury commercial markets, Linthicum is more focused than ever on creating lasting examples of superior craftsmanship, exceptional value and enjoyable experience.
I have been a proud owner of Linthicum Custom Builders since 2002 serving alongside my husband Eric as his partner. After an extensive career commercial real estate brokerage, today I'm focusing 100% of my time, energy and efforts on the business and the Linthicum brand. While still managing a commercial portfolio of properties under my own account, I love the creative energy and legacy that the Linthicum brand continues to bring to the market and build upon. I'm proud to be a part of all of the great projects the company has built from Arizona to California and all the way to Hawaii and look forward to our continued growth and development in the years to come.
Vice President of Construction/Partner
I started working in the construction industry while attending Paradise Valley High School in the summers working as a laborer for KBI Framing Company. Once out of high school I served in the United States Army as a paratrooper. While in the military I married my wife from high school. Upon our return to Arizona I went back to the construction industry to start my career. I worked my way up the ladder from a laborer to managing framing projects in Arizona and out of state. That’s when I realized that my passion is to create not only parts of buildings, but the entire building project. I feel most comfortable tackling challenges or highly detailed designs.
I joined the Linthicum team in October 2005 as a Project Superintendent and worked on Linthicum projects 10 years prior so it was a simple transition for me. Linthicum presented the environment and structure that I have always admired and expected a company to have in the construction industry.
When I’m not building I am spending all my time with my family. My four sons keep my wife and I busy as they are very active in sports. My wife is usually the team mom and I’m usually helping with the coaching staff. My oldest son made us very proud parents when he enlisted in the United States Army Infantry. When I get the chance I like to relax by fishing the mountain lakes in the summer time.
I began my construction career immediately after graduating from high school by working for my uncle’s large framing company in Southern California. Starting out at the bottom as a laborer and attending union carpentry classes at night, I became a union journeyman rough framing carpenter.
My wife and I and our growing family moved to Scottsdale, AZ in the fall of 1979. Adapting to the construction environment in Arizona was a challenge, but there were a lot of opportunities. I moved into supervision on production homes and then semi-custom subdivisions where no two houses were exactly alike. By the mid-90s I was supervising luxury custom homes from 4,000 to 30,000 sq ft under roof. I really enjoy working with homeowners, designers, craftsmen, and various team members as we bring the homeowners’ plans to life. I find these projects to be the most challenging and the most rewarding.
I am excited to be working for Linthicum Custom Builders once again and am familiar with the company’s quality expectations as well as policies, procedures and approach when building a quality custom home.
My wife and I just celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. We enjoy camping and traveling, and I am trying my luck at fly fishing. As schedules permit, we look forward to spending time with our three grown sons and 2 grandchildren.
I recently joined the Linthicum team in March of 2023 as a project engineer. I graduated Summa Cumma Laude from Barrett the Honors College at Arizona State University with a degree in mechanical engineering in May of 2022. Prior to joining the construction world, I worked as a design and project engineer in the aerospace/defensive industry with large companies like Boeing and Northrop Grumman. I have always enjoyed working in the field and seeing projects come together so this job is a perfect fit, and I am honored to be working with such a respected company like Linthicum. Outside of the job site you can find me exploring outdoors, traveling, going to music festivals, or working out.

I joined the Linthicum Custom Care team in spring of 2023. I am an Alabama native with a degree in Hospitality with an emphasis on culinary management. Before joining Linthicum, I worked in luxury hotel resorts with Amangani of Aman in Jackson Hole. This experience allowed me to cultivate my knowledge of the highest level of customer service. I also have experience as a chef in both fine dining and restaurant development. This has also allowed me to provide private dining experiences for clients in Jackson Hole. I am excited to join the Linthicum Custom Care team and leverage my knowledge of luxury properties to provide the highest level of service for our homeowners. Outside of Linthicum, you can find me with my wife and golden retriever enjoying the outdoors, spending time with family and developing new recipes.
