Our Team

Building & Construction

Russell D. Busa


Russ is the founder and hands-on owner of Sterling Homes Development Corporation. Russ literally grew up in the custom home building business. From an early age, he watched his father, Frank Busa, design and build homes throughout Massachusetts. Through the years, Russ frequented job sites and gained hands on experience in all facets of building, from framing to masonry. Russ eventually became a Project Superintendent, managing large scale project schedules, budgets, and sub-contractors.

In 1994, Russ took these years of knowledge and experience in residential new construction to found Sterling Homes. His objective was simple; to strive for excellence not only in quality and detail, but also in professionalism and commitment to the customer. That is why Sterling Homes only employs the best licensed home contractors in the business. 

Sterling’s core team of seasoned home construction professionals is committed to:

  • Top quality products, regardless of the scope of the project
  • Professional project management of budgets and schedules
  • Excellent customer service during AND after construction.
