Team Echelon

The success we have achieved at Echelon is a direct result of the amazing group of people that make up the Echelon Team. Echelon’s organizational structure is highly unconventional and is fundamental to our unique approach towards our business. We view ourselves more as an athletic team where our performance is measured by the happiness of our customers, rather than merely a business where profit is the bottom line.

Although the members of Team Echelon have different skills and specialties, we all share one trait: we truly love to design and build awe-inspiring custom homes. This common passion is the glue that holds our team together and has made the pursuit of our passion so exciting and rewarding.

Echelon has a very unique and special culture that is not easily put into words. From the moment you first meet an Echelon team member, you’ll realize that something is different about our people and our company. The passion we have for building custom homes is extremely evident and creates an air of excitement and enthusiasm around everything we do. We find this passion to be infectious, allowing our customers to become part of the fun and thrill of the entire building experience.

Our team motto, although short and simple, best describes the remarkable group of people that make up Team Echelon:

Passion. Energy. Pride.
