Real Estate Watch

December 07, 1997

Howard Saslow of Encore Homes, a custom home builder in Howard County, was named president of the Home Builders Association of Maryland at its annual banquet Thursday night at the downtown Hyatt Regency.

John Martonick, a past president of HBAM, was honored as the 1997 Builder of the Year. Martonick, who has more than 20 years of property-management experience, is director of property management of Multi-Properties Inc., a Pikesville-based management/development company.

Saslow, who succeeds John N. Bowers of Nottingham Properties Inc., said his immediate goal is to develop a strategic plan for all aspects of the association.

"The whole idea behind the plan is to develop a five-year strategy targeting, for example, membership development, public relations and governmental relations," said Saslow, a former president of the HBAM's Howard County chapter.

Saslow began his career with Ryland Homes Inc., in 1984 and then went to work with Chip Lundy Builders. He later worked as a production manager with Hallmark Builders and, in 1995, Saslow founded Encore Homes. He builds in Howard County and plans to expand to Baltimore County next year.

Martonick has held a variety of positions with HBAM. In addition to being its 1996 president, he is a past president of the association's Apartment Builders & Owners Council. He is a member of the HBAM board of directors and is scheduled to become president of the Maryland State Builders Association in 2000.
