The Ken Young Company was established in 1978. We were initially working in residential remodeling
and insurance related restoration. We moved from there to new construction for a while and then
shifted our focus to commercial tenant finish construction. About fifteen years ago, we decided to
get back into residential new construction as the primary focus of our business. We have constructed
new homes in several areas of Saline and Pulaski counties. At the present time we are focusing on the
Saline County area. Our goal at the Ken Young Company is to provide quality, affordable housing for the
residents of Saline County. Many of the standard features in our homes are often considered upgrades by
other builders. We can build from our plans or yours. If we can assist you in making your Dream a reality,
Please give us a call.
Ken Young is the President of Ken Young Company. He has constructed both speculative and
custom homes in many areas of Pulaski and Saline County. He brings over 30 years of construction
experience in all aspects of building to the team at Ken Young Company. He obtained his Real Estate
License in 2000 and his Brokers License in 2002 to aid in the sale and marketing of our homes. While
he had many years of experience selling houses as the seller, he felt the need to become a Realtor to
better assist his customers, and to bridge the gap between Builders and Realtors.
Melanie Wilkie is the principal broker for Ken Young Company. She attended National School of
Real Estate and obtained her Real Estate license in June 2006 after working in the
Mortgage/Title business for 6 years. Melanie works with buyers, suppliers and
sub-contractors to ensure the home is completed to the satisfaction of the customer.
Melanie also works with the buyers from start to finish on the construction of their new
home, from the floor plan that fits their needs to the finishing colors inside their new
home. She handles the accounts payable for the company to ensure that all bills and charges
to each job are correct and paid promptly. Melanie would love to help find the perfect Ken
Young Home for you!
