It was 1997, and a couple 20-something young project managers working for a major construction company had a dream – to start a commercial construction company that plays a bigger role in their local community; in a city that they now called home. Tom Ford and James Fitzgerald made that leap, and brought to life the Sacramento-based firm MarketOne Builders,.
That is why they were so passionate about the Downtown Sacramento Partnership’s “Calling All Dreamers” competition. This competition represents an opportunity for Sacramento interests and businesses to come together in assisting new startups get on their feet and stimulate economic growth in our community.
Since 2013, Calling All Dreamers has helped eight businesses get started in Sacramento, creating new jobs and small business owners. In recognition of the service this competition provides to the Sacramento community, the Downtown Sacramento Partnership was honored with a Downtown Pinnacle Award for Economic and Business Development during the 60th annual International Downtown Association conference.
MarketOne Builders and other contributors donate their time, materials and funds because they identify with the ground-level dreamers who enter in to this competition, and they are determined to help them build their dreams into brick-and-mortar reality. This community-building initiative is truly empowering to entrepreneurs, and the inspirational teamwork surrounding the competition is the motivating power behind the revitalization of the downtown Sacramento community.
This year, 33 aspiring business owners applied to the competition and only a few will make it to the final round. Each participant is competing for a $100,000 startup package to get their new business off the ground, and the public will have a chance to vote for their favorite concept starting April 29 - May 20.
We’re looking forward to the winner announcement on May 26! Join us in supporting these brave new entrepreneurs and the dream of a vibrant new downtown Sacramento!

Rebuilding Together Sacramento - Helping Those in Need
It is a Core Value at MarketOne Builders, and that compassion was alive and well at the Fall 2013 Rebuilding Together Sacramento, held September 28, 2013. This marks MarketOne’s 4th year participating in the Rebuilding Together Sacramento Fall Rebuild Day and House Captain! Mike Glancy and Jami Bulllivant volunteered to head this years project.
A Worthy Recipient
Earlia & R Z Durham were married for over 50 years and raised 7 children. Three of those children have passed away from cancer - the most recent one two months ago. R Z was an Army Veteran who served time during the Vietnam War. Earlia was a school bus driver for the Sacramento City School District, before she retired. Earlia had a stroke about a year ago (shortly after R Z passed away) and has since been confined to a wheelchair - due to paralysis. Her home was inaccessible and she had been forced to live with her children. She is fiercely independent and would like to return to the home she has owned since 1957.
Much Needed Repairs
Under the careful watch our our team leader Mike Glancy, the Durham house received a lot of attention. The accessibility issues to the house were corrected with a concrete ramp build to current codes, the exterior house and trim were painted, the interior received new doors, paint, plumbing and electrical repairs. Several yard structures were wither repaired or removed to assure maintenance and upkeep will not be a factor in the future.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer...Together
On a crisp fall morning on Sunday, October 20, 2013 the team at MarketOne Builders joined over 20,000 local supporters of the American Cancer Society at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk. More than twenty MarketOne employees, friends and family walked step for step with survivors and supporters to raise more than $2,000 for breast cancer research, information, patient services and access to mamograms for early detection.
We know that together we can make great things happen!
