A beautiful way of life

Our Story

It’s all about family.

KARISMA is a second-generation custom design builder with strong ties in the Niagara Region since the early ‘70s. It all originated high in the mountains of San Pietro in Valle, Italy where patriarch Filippo Fraraccio began carving out his journey as a master mason bringing with him his old-world style, artisan craftsmanship, and work ethic to Canada in 1967.

His son Fred Fraraccio, President of KARISMA Build Group Inc., is proud to carry on his father’s legacy with passion and originality. He’s a hands-on builder from planning and design through construction and to move-in. He prides himself on being on site working alongside all the skilled and hand-picked trades. By doing so, he ensures that every detail requested by homeowners is completed to exacting standards.

Shawna Fraraccio, wife of Fred, and lead designer, works with homeowners throughout the build offering professional design help in selecting exterior and interior products, styles, and colours. The end result is a home that comes together with purpose and a pure sense of balance and harmony.

Our focus at KARISMA is on creating distinctive and innovative custom homes of exceptional quality and originality where the hearts of you and your family make it your home.
