2021 winner of Builder of the Year

We are so proud to be a part of the Stanley Martin Homes Family, 2021 winner of Builder of the Year!


“Our project manager has and continues to be responsive, courteous, helpful and kind to us, who were coming from a terrible previous experience. This was absolutely helpful to us psychologically.”

Arlington, VA | November 2023 

“There’s always a few niggles and unknowns along the way. Project management, scale of support, and a professional back-end team means it’s pretty seamless. SMCH has figured out how to get repeat business in a challenging economy. They have everything tied to a process and it works very well. This is our second build with them and because the first was so easy, we knew exactly what to expect. From first engagement through selections through project management, you really won’t find better. The executive leadership is hands on. That makes a huge difference when you need a fast decision. Plus they’re a great team of people who understand that house building can be stressful. The most stressful part for us was finding a good moving company! Quality build, quality product and fantastic service. If you’re doing this as a first timer, SMCH will ease you into the whole experience and explain everything along the way. Plus, they’re big so they don’t suffer the same challenging supply chain issues that smaller companies might – that was important to us. When you’re home   is constructed and ready within 8 months of excavation, there’s not much to complain about. Would we do it again? Yes, and we’ll do it again with SMCH.”

“Nothing fell short. Keep up the good work. Brian McGranahan’s technical expertise and professional approach was something beyond my expectations. His accomplishments and delivery of the house is very much exceptional. If I build another home, I will insist on him being the Project Manager without having any doubt. My overall experience with SMCH from day one was outstanding. SMCH has made my dream (custom) house come true. I did interview other builders and we feel our decision to go with SMCH is the right one. If I have to build another house, without a doubt, SMCH will be my choice.”
