"patriot homes of spring creek"
Patriot Homes @ Spring Creek

We believe most builders just want to build. While we love to build it isn’t just to build. We enjoy the process of building something unique for each of our clients, whom we consider our friends. We began by developing a much more intimate environment where we wanted to work hand in hand with our clients. We don’t want to box our clients into 3 or 4 options to choose from for a dining room chandelier or a countertop or a flooring selection. Rather, we work together with a predetermined goal (and budget) and provide what you really want. Our clients have found our flexibility to be accommodating instead of limiting. We have enjoyed all of our homes we have built and each and every home we have built has been built for a specific family or person. We want to work with you from concept to reality. We want our clients involved from the beginning until the end. We realized early on that a lot of people were frustrated with the lack of choices. With us, your choices can limitless.

Home is where the heart is—yours and ours. Our passion—and our purpose—is making places people love to call home.

What began in 1948 as a small, family-run business in Pittsburgh has evolved into one of the top five home builders in the nation. We have been building homes in Charlottesville since 2005 and have been the #1 builder in Charlottesville year over year. We’re a proud member of the NVR family, a distinguished group that also includes NVHomes, Fox Ridge Homes, and NVR Mortgage.

What is the secret of our success? There are several: unparalleled customer service, innovative designs, quality construction, affordable prices, and desirable communities in prime locations. Not to mention our industry-leading comprehensive warranty coverage and customer care after move-in. It’s no coincidence that customer referrals are responsible for a large percentage of our home sales.
