While there are a few builders to choose from, we chose Schell Brothers based on their commitment to quality and home efficiency.
Bryn & Patrick Coastal Club Homeowners
The quality of the Schell-built homes and the way they stand behind their work has been a stress buster.
Steve & MaryAnne Schell Brothers Homeowners
We could not be happier with our beautiful home and its location. Schell Brothers does not build houses, they build homes—and home is where the heart is.
Rick & Al Schell Brothers Homeowners
Now that I’ve moved in, the Schell Brothers team is still involved in our community, hosting events that have helped to turn our group of neighbors into friends.
Sharon Independence Homeowner
Schell builds an outstanding, high-quality home but it is your people who are the reason why Schell Brothers succeeds.
Mike & Jeanine Schell Brothers Homeowners
Everyone was knowledgeable, friendly, willing to help at all times, and we could tell that everyone seemed to enjoy what they were doing. That meant a lot to us as homebuyers.
Cheryl & Mark Schell Brothers Homeowners
I recommend Schell Brothers to anyone interested in buying a home. The customer service was excellent from start to finish and continues today.
Susan & Jonathan Schell Brothers Homeowners
Schell Brothers’ commitment to excellence and happiness convinced us that they were the builder for us!
Neal & Laurie Schell Brothers Homeowners
The Schell Team took pride in helping us innovate, visualize and make decisions when designing our new home. We were able to transform our wish list into a reality.
Steven & Michelle Schell Brothers Homeowners
We are very happy – customer service and the community is great! I think Schell Brothers goes out of their way to make sure every buyer is happy and feels like part of a family. No one else (no builder) does that and we ventured out of our comfort zone to be part of this and we’re glad we did.
Angel & Jerry Schell Brothers Homeowners
Schell's incredible reputation is well-deserved.
