The Excel difference.

Striving to make homeownership simple, enjoyable and more fun.

Our mission is simple: to create a homebuying experience that delivers the most joy and value to our homeowners. Since we first began 35 years ago, we’ve built over 14,000 homes in over 80+ communities and received over 75 awards for design and industry excellence. That experience has helped develop a refined homebuying experience that values your time, simplifies the big decisions and minimizes any stress that can come with building a new home.

At Excel, the experience of building your home will be exciting, easy and memorable throughout the entire process.
