Integrity can be translated in many different ways. One could say that it stands for a concept of consistent actions, values and outcomes. Another could say that integrity derives from an inner sense of wholeness, created from qualities such as honesty and cohesion of character. No matter the definition, James Engle Custom Homes and Integrity stand as one.

Jim and Cindy Engle founded James Engle Custom Homes in 2000 while exploring their passion for real estate. The relationships built over the years, along with the determination to create, implement and continually improve processes is what fueled the company's growth. The relationships developed, brought out feedback that sparked ideas to break further away from traditional building industry processes and techniques.

Both Jim and Cindy backed their business with substantial education; each hold Bachelor's Degrees, as well as MBA's. As the company grows, Jim and Cindy continue to remain an active component towards the success of James Engle Custom Homes.

Every member of the JECH team tackles the mission statement "Building Homes... Building Relationships" with enthusiasm, working in harmony with buyers, realtors, developers, vendors, trades and fellow JECH team members to emulate the dream our homeowners aim for. Success for us isn't about the number of homes we build, instead it occurs when the relationship built results in a radiant smile as homeowners move into their finished James Engle Custom Home.

The home building process with James Engle Custom Homes is efficient and ever evolving to meet the demands of the constantly changing building environment. We challenge ourselves daily to ensure our processes best serve our customers, trades and employees. If there is a better way, each employee is empowered to implement new processes. From the beginning stages of gathering information to final design and moving into your home, we are here to ensure your contentment every step of the way. JECH offers standard features that are above and beyond the industry standard. Walking through one of our homes, being fully aware of the final sales price and knowing the precise construction process are just a few invaluable measures that give our homeowners peace of mind prior to making a firm decision. From the early days of the company, through today, we stress the importance and value of each relationship with everyone involved in the process.

The personalities at James Engle Custom Homes can shine through words. To learn more about each of our team members, "Meet Our Staff"!

" On a side note we have had a great experience with the whole James Engle Family from all your help and guidance on building for the first time to all the contractors and suppliers to Dave with his patience and all that he has helped with as I know we've had a lot of changes and questions. I honestly say that this has been a great experience and we have recommended James Engle to so many of our friends and family. Thank you in advance as we near the finish line. Sincerely, Adam Bracco"
