“Building a custom home can be like a root canal: no matter what, the process is going to be painful. Stanley Martin is the nitrous oxide: they transform an experience that’s inherently anxiety provoking and difficult and painful into one that’s pretty much pleasant. I credit that to their amazing staff: Everyone was competent, patient and at every turn, demonstrably willing to move heaven and earth to satisfy.” — Falls Church Resident, October 2019

“Having built multiple homes here in the Mid-Atlantic region, SMCH far and away exceeded all expectations. The two main differences: professional communication (documents, emails, calls, texts, outlined processes), and qualtiy management (experience, materials pipeline, trades oversite, built process, problem resolution, upgrade/change order process and implementation). Pricing is more than competitive, quality materials; friendly, well-qualified staff at every step (land purchase, design, build, warranty management). If you don’t consider them as one of your options, you’re making a mistake!” — Manassas Resident, January 2019



Do you build in the same locations as the Stanley Martin Communities?2022-03-04T20:16:10+00:00

We do not build in all of the locations that the Stanley Martin Communities do, however we do build in Arlington County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Prince William County, Clarke County (Limited Services), Fauquier County (Limited Services), Montgomery County, Prince George’s County (Limited Services), and Howard County (Limited Services).

Can I make changes to your models?2018-05-16T19:52:15+00:00

Absolutely! Our models already come with many options available, but we can also customize further. Your ideas can be discussed with Michael Schnitzer, President of Stanley Martin Custom Homes, at your first meeting.

What is the overall time frame?2021-01-05T15:32:39+00:00

After roughly 5-6 months for permitting and site work, our homes are built in 5-7 months, depending on the jurisdiction and utilities.
