Welcome to the Markel Homes Experience

We design and build quality homes that people love. Fresh architecture and bold, innovative design are our trademarks, along with sustainable construction and the best locations. We offer buyers a variety of housing options and pricing to promote inclusive, multi-generational communities. Our homes and neighborhoods reflect the entrepreneurial spirit of the West and the credo of our company: build it right and build it well.

Why Work with Us

Great Homes Begin with Great Design

The concept for every home we build, regardless of type or price point, begins in a conference room with an experienced team of architects and innovative thinkers. Input from the marketplace fuels the creative process. We hash and rehash until the design, layout and feel of the home come together to create something special.

Choose the Contemporary Version of Your Favorite Classic

Pick the updated, hipper farmhouse, craftsman, or prairie-style design from our Modern American Classics Collection of single-family homes, contemporary cottages, town homes, and duplexes, or choose an easy living condo loft. Large windows and open plans create sunny and inviting interiors. Modern finishes give the living spaces a contemporary look and feel.

Count on the Best Locations

We’re as committed to the locations of our communities as we are to the homes we build. We look for land adjacent to protected open space. Walking paths, trail access and parks are priorities, and we try our best to capture mountain, foothills and open space views, from the neighborhood and from the homes.

Enjoy the Benefits of a High-Performing Home

Greater comfort, filtered indoor air, on-demand hot water, and lower utility bills are yours in our high-performing, tech-friendly single-family homes. We meet or exceed the performance standards of four industry programs to provide a better built, more durable home with health, environmental, and energy-saving benefits.
