Meet the Harringtons and team

Karen and Mark Harrington and their oldest son, Michael, love to build homes!  When you meet them, it becomes obvious how much they enjoy their work, and how much they enjoy working with their customers.


Mark started his home building business in 1987, and is now recognized throughout Central New York for his work. He has served as Chairman of the Parade of Homes, Chairman of the Conciliation Committee, a member of the Remodelors Council, Vice President, President and Member of the Home Builders Association Executive Board. When he’s not working, Mark enjoys the water and spending time with his family.


Karen’s excellent work can be found throughout the interiors of Harrington Homes.  Since leaving a career in speech therapy more than 20 years ago, Karen has worked with clients to create environments perfect for them. Michael has been working with Karen and together, they have become an unbeatable design team.Karen is a member of the Parade of Homes Committee for the Home Builders of CNY, and has won numerous design awards in the “Best of” categories during the Parade. Best Family Room, Best Sunroom, Best Master Suite, Best Exterior, Best Kitchen and Best Living Room are among her recognitions.


Michael joined the team in 2003 after completing his business program at LeMoyne College. In addition to the design work, Michael is active in both the management and sales side of Harrington Homes.  His ability to help a customer through the entire selection and building process is second to none.   In addition to help with colors, carpeting, tile and other selections, he even designs their kitchens!  Customers just love him!
