Why Excel?

We keep it simple and less stressful so that it's fun and easy for you!

A Solid Foundation in New Home Ownership

Excel Homes first broke ground in 1988. Since then we’ve built over 12,000 homes and received over 50 builder awards for design and industry excellence. Three decades of insight has led us to completely reimagine both the homebuilding and home-buying experience. That's why we strive to make homeownership simpler, less stressful, more reliable and more fun. It's the Excel difference.

Our mission is simple: to create a home-buying experience that delivers the most joy and value to our homeowners. Now with Excel, the process saves you time, adds more excitement and minimize the complication that is typically associated with this process. For our single family and duplex homes, we make the added promise of building you a BUILT GREEN® performance home that goes above and beyond building code requirements, at no extra cost to you.

Altogether, it's a leading homeownership experience, making the purchase of your new home a treasured memory.

It will be a place where memories are made, and your life stories created. Let us be your new home expert and your guide. Here are some of the reasons we do what we do and why we're excited to join you on your ride:

Our Experience Drives Us

We draw on the wisdom of more than 30 years of building people’s dreams and are proud of the stellar reputation we have earned. We have never stood still, always seeking to innovate in terms of design, construction and the home-buying experience. It is a difference that’s at the core of how we work each day.

We're Building a Community

We live here too, so we take the time to ensure we do more than just build a “collection of homes”. As an industry leader, we strongly believe in community and feel it’s our responsibility to give back. Our aim is to create neighbourhoods that make us and our homeowners’ proud to call home.

Design is Important to Us
