Chesmar’s strength comes from its Chesmarians (Chesmar associates). Chesmarians are a group of phenomenally talented, energized adults fully engaged in making a difference daily. Everyone at Chesmar Homes is dedicated to providing and sustaining the culture, creating an atmosphere that is both stimulating and nurturing. We call this Chesmar Spirit.
Chesmar places a strong emphasis on “family”, with bonds that extend to include Chesmar associates, business partners, homeowners and Realtors. And those family ties are a pretty big deal to Chesmarians!
Associates at Chesmar Homes take the company’s motto “Setting a Higher Standard” to heart. Each individual agreeing to work at Chesmar Homes, commits to an oath to help Chesmar Homes and everyone associated with the organization, including themselves, to “Set a Higher Standard in Everything They Do.” This pledge is echoed in the company’s mission and core values.
We are dedicated to being the builder of choice for our Customers, Contractors and Chesmarians offering the Best New Home value with Quality Workmanship. We do this with Chesmar Pride, Integrity, Warm Smiles, a Friendly Attitude, and an ENTHUSIASTIC SPIRIT!
