Why We Exist

Our Purpose We've decided to maximize happiness rather than profit.

Our company has a very unique purpose: to maximize happiness rather than profit. Chris Schell left a lucrative career in finance to found Schell Brothers with the sole intent of creating a company that put the happiness of its employees and customers above all else. Ironically and unintentionally, Chris discovered that a genuine commitment to this purpose has made Schell Brothers surpisingly “successful” by all definitions of the word.

“Corporate America is too focused on profit & growth, often to the detriment of happiness & quality of life.” Chris Schell
“Corporate America is too focused on profit & growth, often to the detriment of happiness & quality of life.” Chris Schell

In no other area is our mission to maximize happiness more evident than in the attitude and energy of our team members. Our customers are constantly commenting on how amazing our people are. Our company culture is very unique and tends to attract fun loving out-going people who genuinely enjoy life and love being a part of the Schell Brothers team. Learn More

How We Do It

Your Experience We've reimagined every part of the home building experience.

Design Process

Our design process provides homeowners with all the tools and resources necessary to make choosing beautiful finishes fun and easy. In addition to spending a full day with a design professional in our Dare to Dream Design Studio, buyers can browse our Online Design Studio to view inspiration photos and create finish collages.

Construction Process

At Schell Brothers, we take pride in our commitment to keeping our customers involved and informed throughout the construction process. In addition to the regularly scheduled meetings prior to, during, and after construction, our Construction Managers will touch base with you frequently to provide updates and answer any questions you may have.

Customer Service

Schell Brothers is known for providing outstanding customer service. While many builders rely solely on their subcontractors to provide post-settlement service, Schell Brothers has an entire Customer Service department dedicated to assisting our homeowners. In addition to our regularly scheduled follow-up meetings and quality inspections/tune-ups, our professional Customer Service Technicians are ready to assist you at a moment’s notice. Learn More

What You Get

Semi-Custom Homes High-performance homes with designs, quality, and finishes similar to premium custom homes.

Schell Brothers has earned a reputation as a builder of high-end homes while also providing a professional, fun, and stress-free home buying experience.

In fact, many of our homeowners could easily afford a more expensive custom home but chose Schell Brothers after doing their research and realizing that a Schell Brothers home provided everything they were looking for and was a much smarter investment.

Extensive Personalization

You don’t need to buy a custom home to get beautiful high-end finishes and awe-inspiring spaces adapted perfectly for the way you live. Schell Brothers offers numerous floorplan options including additional bedrooms and bathrooms, living area extensions, luxury master suites, finished basements, home theatres, multi-level courtyards, and much more. We also offer a broad selection of finishes including gourmet kitchens, exotic hardwood and tile, furniture style vanities, wainscoting, coffered ceilings, whole house audio, and more.

Amazing Value

Schell Brothers provides buyers with the best of both worlds: high-end beauty and quality for a price more consistent with high volume production homes. Most large builders focus on reducing costs by building “boxy” homes using the least expensive labor and materials. At Schell Brothers, we’re willing to pay more for better materials, experienced craftsmen, and attractive/functional designs. Fortunately, our volume of business allows us to negotiate much lower prices for the same premium materials and labor used by high-end custom builders.

Ultra Energy Efficient

Schell Brothers homes use less than half the amount of energy used by a typical existing home of similar size. That's the Schellter Advantage. From our 6” exterior walls with R-23 blown-in insulation to our tankless Rinnai water heaters, a Schell Brothers home includes numerous energy saving “green” features. These features not only greatly reduce your utility bills, they also increase the resale value of your home. Learn More

The lower a home’s HERS score, the more energy efficient it is.

HERS 100

The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. Lower is better.

Innovative Floor Plans

Our innovative home plans have won numerous awards including several National Gold Awards, the highest honor awarded to a U.S. builder. Our homes are designed to not only minimize “wasted” space but to enhance the areas of the home that are most important to the homeowner. Our unique home plans are constantly evolving and include everything today’s homebuyer wants and needs.

Curb Appeal

A tremendous amount of time and effort goes into the exterior design of our homes. The exceptional curb appeal of a Schell Brothers home is not only a reflection of the quality and care that goes into the home but also a huge source of pride for our homeowners.

“Your homes just feel better” is something we hear a lot when people tour our models.
