At Norbut Renovations, we believe the first step toward a successful renovation project is solid communication between the entire team. Learn more about our staff below.
- President David Norbut began restoring historical homes and properties, as well as developing land holdings, over 23 years ago at the age of 17. His successful company named Norbut Renovations has renovated and built hundreds of homes in the Rochester, NY area. Dave’s design-build ideology has transcended into the realm of solar farms, sustainable housing developments like Ranches On The Farm and historical buildings that are now modern workspaces for several small businesses and Fortune 500 companies. When he is not developing projects, Dave loves cultivating his prized garlic and lilies and spending time with his growing family!
- Ethan Willistein is an accomplished craftsman with a Mechanical Engineering degree from RIT and Professional Engineer license. Beyond his expertise in fine carpentry and tile work, he is very interested in the engineering and design of machinery and energy-related construction components. Outside of work, he enjoys playing sports and spending time with his young family.
Director of Operations & Real Estate Development
- Jenelle Harriff has been helping build up the Norbut Family of Businesses since 2016. With a Communications & Applied Technology degree from Drexel University and a Business & Human Resources Management degree from MCC, Jenelle wears many hats beyond managing leads, clients, tenant satisfaction, and our development logistics. If she is not whipping up team meals in our gourmet kitchen, you will likely find her gardening, grilling or renovating her darling home in North Winton Village!

- Brion Burger has been working hard on our projects and maintaining our properties since 2014. With a degree in Graphic Design from the National Institute for the Deaf at RIT, he brings a lot of creativity to our team.
