Building Communities Through a Commitment to Quality

If there is one thing that President and founder Jefferey Fautt of Fautt Homes can't convey enough, it is that he is inordinately passionate about his profession, team and the homes they build. To Fautt Homes, the combination of experience, relationships and enthusiasm towards their product makes their talented company a distinct custom-home builder. Fautt and his tight-knit team are clear and cohesive in their vision for creating homes of exceptional quality and detail. The resulting product would inspire even the most critical of consumers to find lifelong satisfaction in one of their timeless and classic custom homes.

Fautt Homes specializes in building exemplary custom homes that aim to provide outstanding quality and value. The company is clear in its distinctive phrase, "Live the life... What many see as an option, we view as a standard." Everything must be coordinated and well thought through before they start a project. Above all, the idea most important to Fautt and his team is being able to deliver an exceptional product to their client and community.

Fautt largely attributes the success of the company to the combined expertise, collaboration and fantastic personalities of his small but detailed team. "We enjoy being around each other," Fautt declares affectionately. Each of his unique and seasoned co-workers brings a vast amount of knowledge to the table that is the driving force behind the success of their meticulous common goals. He notes, "Everyone here is an over achiever." Fautt himself, having graduated with a degree in economics from San Jose State University, carries over 30 years of experience in the home building industry, with more then a decade being spent with a large national home builder in various senior management roles — the last three years as its President.

Fautt also places great importance on the longstanding working relationships that he and his team have established over the years with subcontractors. "The majority of our subcontractors are those who have been working with us for 10 to 15 years... the level of precision that we expect and the familiarity of the relationship cannot be replaced." It is clear that these associations are what make Fautt Homes so effective and rare in what they deliver to their homeowners.

The company's latest projects in Danville and Alamo, is demonstrative of their commitment to quality and the creativity of the team. One might imagine there is something that stands out above the rest of his work in these particular custom homes considering that Fautt and his family reside in Alamo. However, he easily assures us that he holds the same high level of standards for every custom home they build. There is, however, he mentions, a certain level of enjoyment and accomplishment about "being able to drive down the street and see something that we’ve created as a team... there is a lot of satisfaction in it." The journey the team embarks upon for each and every custom home is distinct, thorough and aimed at excellence.

Other estates that Fautt and his team are currently in the planning stages on are in Alamo, Danville, Lafayette and Walnut Creek. "A tremendous amount of thought goes into every aspect of the home, such as window placement, cabinet location, every door swing and anything which impacts the flow of the home. These details, coupled with the high quality of materials we use, make everything come together. People, at the end of the day, are very aware that we put a lot of thought and time into our work," Fautt states proudly. Each home offers custom luxury specifically tailored for that particular home site so that the owner can enjoy their surrounding space and environment to its fullest extent.

Fautt Homes' primary focus is on building timeless and impressive homes abounding with amenities, homes that offer families generations of memories. "I’m passionate about what we build and the experience we create with our finished product," he says warmly. He feels fortunate enough to be the leader, but appreciates that the company's natural evolution has been the culmination of hard work, by not only himself, but by his amazingly talented and innovative team.
