Building with the Best

The team at Meritus Homes is represented by some of the most experienced and respected construction and sales professionals in the Chicago area. By building Meritus Homes around a core team of dedicated, industry experts who embrace the small business mentality of working together and the value of entrepreneurship, we can focus on doing things the right way for our customers, our trade partners and the communities in which we build.

You can feel confident in our financial strength due to our strong capital assets and disciplined business model. Aligning with a successful entrepreneur, Gary Janko, founder of Janko Group, whose real estate investment company has an existing portfolio of assets in excess of $300 million, allows Meritus Homes to continue through challenges and be positioned well as the market continues to stabilize and improve.

Meritus Homes is a homebuilding company like no other, based on our own background in the efficient and proven practices of a large-scale builder, but grounded in the hands-on, personalized approach we are able to offer as a local, private company. As a result, we deliver a positive, enjoyable homebuilding experience that is seamless at all stages:

  • Financing: We are a financially strong homebuilder who owns and controls great home sites in some of the most desirable communities in Chicagoland. As a result, we can sell our homes and compete with confidence in our more boutique approach against a prevalent regional ‘production’ building model.
  • Design: Our collaborative approach gives you great input and flexibility in the design process– whether you choose to build a floor plan from our portfolio, draw inspiration from the customizations we’ve made for past clients, or come to us with your own ideas to be incorporated into a brand-new design. Likewise, we partner with architects who specialize in designing custom homes in the municipalities where we build, so the entire homebuilding process – from design and permitting to building and inspection – is as smooth as possible. Our goal in homebuilding is to have the process be as rewarding as the end result.
  • Construction: We believe staying in contact with our buyers throughout the building process is imperative to an excellent homebuilding experience. We check in with you at key points during construction to ensure we are executing the feature requirements and building specifications as ordered. This ensures a high level of predictability in our construction process and timeline, and gives us the ability to make adjustments, if necessary, as you see your new home coming together.
