About Us

Mainstreet development about us photo

Focused on innovative design, enduring quality and creating long term value for our customers.

Eric J. Rystadt, the President and owner of Main Street Development, a Portland, Oregon native, is a fourth generation builder. His father, grandfather, and great grandfather were all home builders. He started following in their footsteps out of school as a carpenter tradesman, and formed Main Street Development in 1995.

Over the years, Eric has displayed and participated in numerous home shows, including the annual “Street of Dreams” home show, the NW Natural Gas “Show of Homes”, and others. Having been acknowledged by the public for design excellence, his pride in craftsmanship continues with each new project.

He’s a member of the Portland Home Builder’s Association, and holds the designation of “Certified Master Home Builder”.

Eric’s creative vision is driven by his appreciation of beautiful architecture and all aspects of aesthetic design, cutting edge innovation, lifestyle trends, and the highest quality of craftsmanship.

It is our passion where the difference lies––passion in the creative process, passion in those little fine details that make a home really stand out, passion in creating a home that embodies your dreams and your own individuality.
