“We are very satisfied with our experience with Stanley Martin Custom Homes and have recommended them widely. Our project manager was terrific to work with and made a very stressful process go as smooth as possible. Laura Lovo was very helpful throughout the selections process and very helpful whenever we did have questions about selections throughout the build process. Michael Schnitzer was very easy to work with and attentive even when we had to make some drastic changes to our home design.”

“We met with several renovation contractors about renovating our home and quickly realized it was going to be more costly than we expected. Not to mention, we could not get everything we wanted with a renovation. We contacted Stanley Martin Custom Homes to see what our options might be and were thrilled to learn we could build a brand new home for about the same cost as a renovation, And with the new build we got EVERYTHING we wanted. We could not be happier with our new home and appreciate the time and care SMCH put into educating us about our new home build project.”
