February 2011 | Custom Home Building - Luxury
January 4th, 2011‐ Classic Homes of Maryland was named one of the D.C. area’s fastest growing companies of 2010 by SmartCEO Magazine. Accolades included the company’s growth in both revenue and employees over a 3 year span. Classic’s start can be traced back just 4 years, to builders Dinesh Jain (President) and Prem Puri who now employ 15 to assist with the company’s growing demands and clientele in the past 3 years.
In Classic’s first year they were producing 5 to 6 homes. Now with the resources of a company behind them and the ability to produce custom homes, 2010 closed with 22 completed single‐ family homes. When asked what the most important growth decision has been, Dinesh Jain responded, “The most important growth decision has been to hire and retain honest, hard‐working, and passionate people. In the last four years, that has been my focus, and today I attribute the success of my company to my staff. They all have the same principles and service‐driven attitude as I do, and it reflects to our customers.”
Classic Homes has specialized in new construction in Maryland, building mostly on privately owned land, with sister companies building in Virginia. While the economy has waned, Classic Homes has grown each year and now has sales offices in Rockville, Columbia and Baltimore. A unique program called ‘Site Services’ recently implemented aims to help prospective buyers find suitable land for their dream home, whether standard or custom.
In 2008, Classic Homes of Maryland completed a home as the featured builder for popular tv show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”; they completed a house in 5 days for a homeless single mother raising 14 children. A year later, Classic Homes and builder Prem Puri were awarded ‘Builder of the Year’ for 2009 by Montgomery County and continue to be a leader in the building community. Classic is committed to innovative and inspiring design, while focusing on the needs of the household and surrounding community. From townhomes to luxury estates, Classic is always striving to deliver the best in new construction, with high quality materials, at affordable prices.
