Patrick Taylor

Chief Executive Officer

Patrick Taylor began his career in 1983 as a developer of single-family homes where he acquired raw land and took the
projects through entitlement, design, and construction. Having funded the developments with private capital, Mr. Taylor
successfully completed the homes and the sales returned net profits in excess of 45%. Mr. Taylor expanded into residential
and commercial mortgage banking in 1986 and financed thousands of homes and commercial buildings in Southern
California and Lake Tahoe while working for Directors Mortgage Corporation. In 1996, he founded Alpine Corporation as a
residential and commercial mortgage banker but expanded the scope of the business into multifamily acquisition,
development, and property management just four years later. Recognizing the opportunities at Lake Tahoe for both high
end residential and moderately priced work force housing apartments, Mr. Taylor began to identify and acquire sites
around the lake for development. Over his 35 years in real estate, he has owned, developed, renovated, managed, and
financed well over $1.0 billion of assets of both residential and commercial property. He has held a California Real Estate
Salesperson license since 1987 and has since attended many real estates conferences as well as received extensive
training. Currently, Mr. Taylor oversees all operational and business functions and is responsible for strategic direction and
overall leadership of the company.

Matthew Locati


Director of Construction

While earning his bachelor’s degree in finance from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, Matt Locati
operated Fineline Construction. In his senior year, he gained valuable lending experience as the Vice President of
Marketing for the Homes Company Mortgage Brokerage. Concurrent with his time at the Homes Company, Mr. Locati
started Terrex Land Development Company, with his first project being a 120-acre subdivision in Creston, California. After
improving access to the property and grading building pads, he subdivided and re-positioned the property from low-value
agricultural use to executive homes sites, which he successfully marketed and sold. Mr. Locati also obtained his broker’s
license to assist with acquisitions and he moved the company from paper ledgers to an electronic bookkeeping system. As
President of TerraCorp and Terrex, Mr. Locati’s primary responsibilities were corporate governance, project entitlement,
community design, construction management, and capital structuring.
