House building involves planning, site development, building a foundation, framing, finishing and so much more. Along with those elements, a trustworthy and reputable builder is key for the creation of a sound, strong and beautiful home. From Virginia to Maryland, Classic homes has been designing and building affordable custom homes for their clientele for decades. Hand-in-hand with the conscientious staff at Classic Homes, clients build new lives alongside the custom home of their dreams.
The principals of Classic Homes have been building single-family homes and townhomes since 1983. They have built several thousand homes in the northern Virginia area, primarily in Prince William, Stafford, Fairfax, and Loudon counties. In 2006, they opened offices in Maryland, serving Montgomery, Prince Georges, Howard, Frederick, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Calvert and Carroll counties where the company builds affordable, high-quality, custom and semi-custom homes on customer-owned land.
Since the Maryland-based company’s start up, the demand for a custom/semi-custom built home by Classic has become increasingly popular. With 30 years of construction experience, the company is able to offer an unprecedented value to its customers, and this has shown in the company’s recent track record - the company’s growth increased by over 200% each year, and continued so even during the economic recession when new home construction experienced a significant downfall.
In January 2011, SmartCEO Magazine named Classic Homes of Maryland one of the D.C. area’s fastest growing companies. Accolades included the company’s growth in both revenue and employees over a 3 year span. Classic’s start can be traced back to builders Mr. Dinesh Jain and Mr. Puri who now have a staff of over 25 people and three Maryland-based offices to assist with the company’s growing demands and clientele across the state.
In 2008, builder and co-founder Mr. Prem Puri, built and donated a new home in Poolesville, Maryland for Felicia Jackson, a single mother struggling to keep her family together following the death of her sister. Mr. Puri worked with the producers of the ABC series “Extreme Makeover Home Edition,” and donated materials worth $600,000 toward the construction of the new 4600 sq. ft. home for the Jacksons.
On May 8, 2009, The Affordable Housing Conference of Montgomery County honored Mr. Puri, with the “Builder of the Year” award when it convened its 18th annual conference in Bethesda, MD.
Many of the company’s subcontractors, vendors and suppliers have supported Classic Homes and their four sister companies for over 20 years, as the company has acquired a reputation of honesty, trustworthiness, and reliability, one that is well-known in the real estate industry. Classic Homes consistently strives to adhere to these principals at all times, in every aspect of their work. That is one of the reasons why over 75% of the company’s sales come from referrals from satisfied homeowners.
The staff at Classic Homes truly takes pride in their work, whether it’s developing new designs, assisting new customers in making the best decisions when purchasing a new home, or guiding home owners through the construction process.
