A Writer, World Traveler, Philanthropist and Real Estate Developer
Writer, world traveler, philanthropist, and real estate developer Pritam Singh aims to evoke a “sense of place” and sensitivity toward the environment and communities through the projects on which The Singh Company works. With a keen eye for detail inspired by global wonders and a personal investment in working closely on every project his eponymous firm develops, Singh has been known to bring back a particular style of porch light or doorknob he has spotted on his travels to Europe and Asia for use in a community he is developing.
From the renovation of a historic home in Portland, Maine in 1978 to the development of over 3 billion dollars of hotel, residential and commercial property, Pritam Singh and Ann Johnston, founders of The Singh Company, are a true American success story. Today, The Singh Company has evolved into a full-service real estate company attaining a national reputation for successfully developing, financing and managing hotel, residential and resort properties as well as office, retail, and commercial properties.
"This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body."
- Walt Whitman
