New Homes in DE and VA with unmatched value
Schell Brothers is a premier builder of new homes offering unsurpassed quality and curb appeal.
As a leading builder in Delaware and the Richmond, Virginia area, we offer a wide variety of floorplans with extensive personalization to make your home the sanctuary you and your family deserve. Our team is creative, knowledgeable, and happy to come to work every day. We are proud to be recognized as a leader in the new home building industry.
What is so special about Schell Brothers? Our customers will experience a new home buying journey, unlike other builders. From the moment you meet our Community Sales Manager to your settlement and beyond, our Schell team will treat you like family. Additionally, our proprietary Heartbeat software will track your new home build and keep you informed. When you purchase a Schell Brothers home, your home will be uniquely yours, built by a team of locally focused and community minded experts.
Every company has a story. Ours is happiness.
While we’ve earned a reputation for building distinctive homes, much of our company’s success can be attributed to our unique business purpose: to maximize happiness rather than profit! We’re truly focused on our own happiness and the happiness of our customers.
Our Mission: Bring happiness to ourselves and our homeowners by not only creating exceptional homes and communities but also by providing an extraordinary home buying experience.
Happiness is more than a state of mind; it’s how we do business. The foundation of Schell Brothers is our culture of happiness. By sharing Happy Stories at company meetings - often held on the beach - and participating in BBQs, beach days, Turkey Bowls, and the laugh-out-loud Schellies show, we understand the importance of exercising our imaginations and having fun.
The Schellter Advantage
We pride ourselves on building homes that provide a healthier and more comfortable living environment. We are the only builder that includes Schellter™ Advanced Building Science in every home, providing an extremely energy efficient home with unparalleled durability, longevity, strength, and quality.
Blowing away the standard for energy efficiency.
Schell Brothers homes use less than half the amount of energy used by a typical existing home of similar size. 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.
