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!


“The home-building process was smooth with Stanley Martin & having a project manager you could trust who was on top of everything made it even better! We were happy with the entire process, from working with us to customize our floor plan to helping us with options, through the entire home-building process. Russell was great during the design process…Brian was equally great with his knowledge of the entire home-building process.”

Aldie, VA | April 2024

“Overall, a great experience! SMCH did a great job with site management, plan customization, and construction management. I was remote except for a couple of visits during construction, so this project would have been impossible for me without the full service provided by SMCH. Greg did a great job of managing the customer (us). Mike B. did a great job of adjusting/managing the plans. Everyone at SMCH was extremely helpful and professional.”

Arlington, VA | April 2024

“Our new home is beautiful and we had a positive experience working with the entire SMCH team! We appreciated the opportunity to design the home to meet our needs. We also appreciated the weekly meetings and personal communications with our project manager which helped us understand the process and time frames. We were so impressed with the technical support and exceptional customer service provided by Tim, Russell, and Mike B. They were always available, attentive to our concerns, and creative in addressing our needs.”
