Shiloh Custom Homes would go on to receive over 50 national and regional awards for its outstanding homes built under Ken’s leadership. In 2001, Ken began pursuing his interest in land development in Arizona and Montana. “Shiloh Development” success led Ken to selling Shiloh Custom Homes in 2004 to key employees and to focus full-time on land development. In 2013 Ken returned to Scottsdale, eventually founding Shiloh Builders to pursue his passion: building luxury custom homes and home transformations in North Scottsdale, Cave Creek and Carefree.
