Building Dreams- One Home At A Time.
When we started our company in 1993, we had one goal in mind; to build beautiful, distinctive homes with character that served their surrounding communities. We never believed that "one size fits all". Some home builders and construction companies try to design a community by redefining what they think is successful, we prefer to simply enhance the community with unique homes that are a reflection of the regional characteristics, and the people that live in them. It is important for us to never lose sight of what we do; which is more than develop land and build homes, we build trust, communities, and futures. Your home is more than just a financial investment, or a place to hang your hat; we believe your home is an intricate part of who you are.
Once we had envisioned our philosophy, we needed a name. Naming the company after only one of us would not do it justice; it would not capture the essence of what we stand for. After all, it takes a whole team to accomplish something as important as building people's futures. One person cannot do it alone, so the company name needed to reflect that. We wanted it to embrace the same kind of feeling that you get when you realize your dream of buying a new home. So we contemplated, our good experiences, our favorite memories, and then we remembered a county in England that we had visited called "Norfolk". We instantly agreed it was a name that reminded us that there are some experiences in life that you never forget.
In the spirit of making a difference, we decided to re-think and re-evaluate what homeowners want in today's market. We know that just because something used to work in the past does not mean it will work in today's world. Take a formal dining room for instance. For many of us, it is a room that is seldom used more than once or twice a year, except when it is your turn to host the holidays, and then there is never enough room. All your guests are squeezed in uncomfortably, and no matter how many chairs you stuff around the table, inevitably, some people end up at the tiny "kids" table in another room, (like the in-laws.) We believe your home should revolve around you, not the other way around. We have floor plans that are designed to enhance the way you live, so you don't end up with rooms that you simply pass through. We build homes that fuse functionality with elegance. Making the most of your everyday living space, makes the most of your investment.
We are also proud to be an award-winning participant in the Energy Star program. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that helps us all save money while protecting the environment through energy efficient products and practices. We offer so many beautiful amenities, from vaulted ceilings, to gleaming hardwood floors, to gorgeous marble counter tops, the quality and beauty of our single-family homes and our attached ranch condominiums, will last a lifetime.
When we started off with the "Briarhaven" model as our very first home, we never imagined then how far we would come. In fact, to this day the "Briarhaven" is still a favorite plan of our clients. Now it's just one of the many beautiful plans we offer today's home buyers. Now our unique collection of homes and communities extend throughout southeast Michigan, middle Tennessee, and northern Alabama. It just proves that when you care, and you listen, you can make a difference. We simply set out to make a positive change, to do something that matters and we continue to build dreams, one home at a time.
Anyone can say that they are different, or claim that they listen; we prefer to prove it to you, by making your home building experience one of the best memories of your life. We invite you to find out for yourself why Norfolk Homes is the right choice for you.
