About Stanley Martin Custom Homes | We Build On Your Lot

Our History

Stanley Martin Custom Homes was founded in 1998 by Steven B. Alloy and Michael Schnitzer. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Stanley Martin Homes, who has represented the best in Washington, DC area Homebuilding since 1966. Long & Foster real estate agent John Jorgenson joined Stanley Martin Custom Homes in 2006 as the sales partner. Importantly, we have paid our bills on time since 1966 and built over 1,000 homes per year!

Notably, the decorated Stanley Martin Communities of the mid-Atlantic region feature a lot of our custom homes. Moreover, we dovetail off Stanley Martin Homes and leverage their buying power. In addition, we use their architectural plans, accounting department, and purchasing department.

Home Building

Stanley Martin Custom Homes creates an enjoyable experience by continuously focusing on your satisfaction and being dedicated to construction excellence. Building a home is a once in a lifetime experience. As your builder, Stanley Martin Custom Homes will deliver your home for the best value and provide you with personalized service.

Our motto is simple: Craftsmanship is achieved by starting with the end in mind.

Before we pick up a hammer or saw, we pick up a pen and paper and listen carefully to what you want in a home. We discuss your family, your needs, and the way you live. Additionally, we figure out what features are most important and determine the best fit for your budget and location. Also, we can even explore your neighborhood to see what kind of home will fit on your lot most naturally. Then, we go back and start putting together a plan just for you.

Quality Matters

  • Our plans are newer and more innovative, with the modern features you desire, such as loads of storage space and gourmet kitchens.
  • We use higher quality materials and products – like low-E windows, High-Quality Housewrap, Denshield tile backer, and much, much more.
  • Our trade partners are true craftsmen and take pride in their work.

Furthermore, Stanley Martin Custom Homes has hundreds of floor plans to choose from and don’t forget all floor plans and exteriors are customizable.

New and innovative floor plans, dedicated and experienced staff, tried and true processes, and great value.
