At Bel Arbor Builders, we are passionate about custom homebuilding and our customer’s dreams for a new home. We pride ourselves in building showcase homes with superior craftsmanship and timeless beauty. We have been designing and building high end, custom homes for more than 25 years. Our award-winning designs speak to knowledge of architectural style, design, availability of new and unique products (including stage-of-life, maintenance free options), and attention to detail. We strive to make the finished product a home that will make you smile each and every time you walk through the door.
The success that we have achieved at Bel Arbor is a tribute to an amazing group of dedicated people that we call “Team Bel Arbor.” We all have one thing in common, we are passionate about homebuilding, and each individual customer represents an exciting new project for us. We believe that our ultimate success is measured by the happiness of our customers, not just the bottom line.
Designed to be unique, each home becomes a close collaboration between Bel Arbor and every individual customer. Our customers’ experience our expertise, design knowledge, and personal service throughout the entire design-build process. We are focused on designing high-end custom homes with great floor plans and amazing curb appeal. Building a custom home should be a very exciting time, so throughout your construction process, we promise to help make the construction fun and easy!
Although the members of Team Bel Arbor all have different specialties and skills, we all share one goal: we love to build awe-inspiring homes. It’s this goal that pulls our team together to work both with you and for you to help you achieve what your own personal vision may be in a new home.
