Custom Homes, Built on Trust

"From initial design to the finished product, a home is the reflection of each client’s taste and style, yet it is built upon a foundation of planning, craftsmanship, and pride.” -Craig Wichert, President

“I am extremely hands-on at every jobsite, visiting several times a day,” says Craig Wichert, owner of Wichert Homes. “We follow an organized system that takes our buyers from start to finish seamlessly.” Working with an interior design consultant from the start, Craig is personally onsite at every home several times a day. He works hand-in-hand with his architect and his longtime, loyal subcontractors throughout a smooth process that ensures clients are never overwhelmed.

The fact that Craig has been working with some of his subcontractors for more than 20 years speaks volumes of their trust and dedication to each other and their clients. “Each of my subcontractors is licensed and insured and they know my process and what’s expected with these houses,” Craig says. “They stand behind the quality of their finished product.”

It’s not enough, Craig knows, just to get the job done. It is therefore his honor and duty to take good care of his skilled subcontractors, fostering a shared commitment and optimal results for homeowners.

A high level of dedication and attention to detail have defined Craig Wichert’s 26 years of residential building. A Serrano community member for 21 years, Craig Wichert and Wichert Homes have built nearly 100 custom homes in Serrano. Craig is trusted for his personalized dedication to the community and his longstanding relationships with building professionals and municipal departments.
