35 years of Excel.
For over three and a half decades, Excel Homes has been a leader in the Alberta new home building industry. We've seen a lot of changes building in over 80+ communities throughout the years but our mission to our customers remains same. See our history and how far we've come below:
Founded 35 years ago, Excel Homes was crafted in Calgary with the vision to make home building affordable and maximum livability in times where mortgage rates were between 12% and 14%. We helped forge the shape of communities with award-winning homes in Martindale (NE), Riverbend (SE) and Riverstone (SE).
Only 3 years into inception, Excel developed the award-winning The Crossings community within Martindale (NE). Through much perseverance and commitment to our original vision, we were recognized as being number 3 builder in Calgary and number 12 within all of Canada.
After successfully entering the Edmonton housing marketing, building in over 20+ Calgary communities and reporting records sales numbers, Apex took a very strong interest in Excel Homes. By October 1997, the transaction was complete and Apex acquired Excel Homes.
Committing to the green initiative of home building and the environment, Excel starts registered each home as Built Green®. In 2010, we were additionally recognized as a Built Green® 2009 Champion and the second largest registrant in Canada for Built Green® homes.
Not only did we celebrate our 26th Anniversary, we hit our 10,000 home built milestone! We celebrated this achievement by giving away $10,000 to a lucky person with 1 of 10 keys scattered throughout the communities of our show homes. In finality, the home was drawn in November 2014.
Excel re-structures with new leadership, values and promising new vision to enhance our company's long-term goals after celebrating being number 1 in the 2017 market share. Our brand new ethos and tagline of "Simplifying your journey home." is an encompassing statement of what we do day-to-day for all of our customers.
