Our Christopher family builds homes for your family.
Uncompromising dedication to homebuilding excellence and homeowner satisfaction have been standard at The Christopher Companies since 1974. After 45 years of experience serving over 6,000 homeowners, we have grown to become one of the largest independent homebuilders and developers in the Washington, D.C. metro area, Albermarle County in Charlottesville and in Sussex County in Delaware, while remaining committed to the values of a locally owned and managed firm.
The Christopher Companies’ dedication to integrity, family and quality is evident in every aspect of our homebuilding process, strategically choosing convenient, naturally beautiful locations that enable our homeowners and customers to live without compromise. Their diverse portfolio of offerings includes single-family homes, townhomes, residential condominiums, apartments, condominiums and mixed-use properties. Even as we continue to grow, we remain a small, local firm that’s committed to our community, and our neighbors.
Quality Built, Hand-Crafted Homes
At Christopher Companies, we strive to combine impeccable design, quality craftsmanship, and the latest in sustainable building in all of our homes. Christopher homes aren’t just beautifully designed – they’re created with the needs and lifestyles of homeowners in mind. Christopher understands the importance of homes that are remarkably comfortable and livable; homes to make memories in, and homes for families to enjoy for years to come. We don’t cut corners when it comes to quality service. We are a group of real people who live in the real world, and while our homes feature aesthetically exquisite designs and incredible curb appeal, they’re also practical, comfortable and exceedingly livable. Every decision we make and every choice we offer comes from asking ourselves, “What is best for our clients? Whether it’s requiring that our customers have top-of-the-line General Electric (GE)® or EnergyStar® appliances or following up with our homeowners years after completion.
At Christopher Companies, our mission is more than just a collection of words we have put to paper. We are truly committed to building quality homes and community concepts that reflect and enhance our buyer’s needs and lifestyles. At the same time, we are committed to the advancement of the community at large, serving charitable endeavors throughout the greater Washington, DC region.
Our guiding principles: professionalism, integrity, family, design, quality and service are behind every decision we make, every relationship we forge, and every home we build.
Commitment to Sustainability
As one of the leading builders of both NGBS-certified and EnergyStar® certified homes in the region, Christopher Companies is committed to leading edge and sustainable building technologies in every home we build and in every new site we develop. We begin with an environmentally sensitive site design, geared toward maximizing tree savings whenever possible and respecting the existing topography. Along with other sustainable features within the home, we complete the site with low impact amenities that you and your family will appreciate, such as walking trails, gazebos, and attractive newly landscaped outdoor spaces for your active or passive enjoyment.
Our homes are designed and built with respect for the environment as well as your long-term cost of ownership. Energy and resource efficiency are built-in, enhancing your comfort and minimizing your monthly operating costs. Products and materials are carefully selected to minimize your long-term maintenance costs, both inside and outside your home. See your Sales Associate for the specific details for the homes in your community.
Each new home we build meets the “The National Green Building Standard” for certification. NGBS was developed in partnership with the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) and the International Code Council (ICC) and was approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as an American National Standard on January 29, 2009. NGBS is the only ANSI-approved green building standard at this time. This program builds upon the energy efficiency features championed by Energy Star®, adding performance criteria for lot design and development, efficiency in the use of materials, enhanced durability and maintenance, water efficiency, and indoor environmental quality. Visit www.nahbgreen.org for more details.
In addition, all of our homes are EnergyStar®-certified by a third party inspection agency for your peace of mind. Please visit www.energystar.gov for complete details on EPA’s EnergyStar® program. Ask your Sales Associate how this program applies to your new home.
Visit a Christopher community and take a look for yourself. Inside your home, outside your home, and in between the walls of your new home, our quality and attention to detail speaks for itself.
