Homes by WestBay was founded in 2009 by Tampa Bay homebuilders Roger Gatewood and Willy Nunn. It is a local home building company that focuses in building in its community. It has built homes in FishHawk Ranch, South Fork, Waterset and MiraBay.
“We are locally owned and operated. We stick to building houses in Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties,” said Nunn, president of Homes by Westbay, and a FishHawk resident.
“This is a phenomenal site. La Collina will be in close proximity to everything in Brandon,” said Nunn.
The groundbreaking for La Collina was attended by Nunn, as well as the Honorary Mayor of Brandon, Liz Brewer.
