Chesmar Homes Celebrates 10 Years!

Chesmar Homes Celebrates 10 Years!

Chesmar Homes the dream, for Don Klein, started early in 2005 when he began planning out in earnest his own company. Klein had worked for national, publicly owned companies for many years and had a distinctively different vision for his new start-up. By mid-April of that year, company operations began in Houston with five starter floor plans and five highly-leveraged associates. Fast forward to 2015, and you find Chesmar listed on Builder Magazine’s BUILDER 100 listing of the top 100 builders in the country.

With operations now in five cities (and two states), the homes, features, and communities will continue to evolve. One thing is not likely to ever change, and that is the original principles for which the company stands. The Chesmar Family of Associates is committed to maintaining the culture in which they operate; one which cultivates an entrepreneurial spirit, and is driven to deliver creative ideas and exceptional customer service.

Look how we’ve grown!

Fledgling Chesmar finished out its first year with seven models in five communities, including top tier Cinco Ranch and The Woodlands! The company had 17 associates and a whopping 19 Chesmar homeowners by the end of 2005. Today Chesmar manages almost 300 floor plans, employs more than 180 full-time associates in 5 cities, and has nearly 5000 Chesmar homeowners!
