This isn't just any home... it's your home.
If you've seen our work, you'll immediately notice that we don’t have a specific "go-to" style. Instead, we prefer to draw design inspiration from both historical and modern architecture, then reinterpret these forms for modern living. Our goal is always the transformation of our clients' vision into fresh, imaginative, well built, and timeless homes.
The owners of Alexandra Fine Homes – Nestor & Paul Papageorge, literally grew up in a construction family. Even before graduating college, both brothers were heavily involved in the family construction business. From the early days sweeping up after dad's crews, to complete control of all aspects of the entire business of more than thirty employees. This involved not only “hands-on” architecture and construction, but the understanding of market trends, investment strategies, forward-thinking design, resale strategies, negotiating, and recognizing unique opportunities.
Our breadth of experience encompasses literally hundreds of commercial and residential projects, including many very high-profile ones. From the accolades received completing the highly publicized historical renovation of the landmark Cleveland Federal Courthouse, to the renovation and construction of hundreds of homes in a wide array of price points, to our countless awards for design and craftsmanship, our many years of “hands-on” experience in the field and at the drafting table assures you that you are in capable hands.
…we met with a handful of very highly recommended builders and checked them out closely. It was a given that your build quality and design style were clearly a step above; but most importantly, you made us feel very comfortable from the day we met, like old friends, and your past customers confirmed our gut feeling. The entire process was not what we expected at all—it has been fun and exciting and rewarding, with no surprises. Other homes in our price range simply don't compare. Thanks to Paul, Nestor, Karen, and “the A-Team” for our amazing experience! We pinch ourselves every day—we absolutely LOVE our new home and will recommend your firm to anyone who asks!…
We are experienced and committed to obtaining the best value and pricing, negotiating the best deals for materials and labor, and employing the very best tradesman in the business. We've successfully completed numerous projects on “difficult” sites and are always ahead of the pack in implementing new and sustainable materials and better, more energy-efficient systems and construction methods. Your house—from the dirt below to the roof above—will be designed and built to give you years of carefree, energy-efficient, pure enjoyment. Just ask someone who lives in one of our homes.
What happens when a design idea sounds great in our Friday meeting, but you get “cold feet” over the weekend? Give us a call and we'll work through it together. We'll never leave you locked into something that doesn't make you happy. Communicating—listening to you—is our number one priority, so you'll rarely have cause for second-guessing.
Our detailed and organized system walks you through the design and building process—step by step. Our Selections Coordinator and A.S.I.D. Certified Interior Decorators will skillfully assist you throughout the selections process, helping you put your own personal stamp on your dream home. We are constantly exploring new design trends, construction methods, and better, “greener” materials. And because we are committed to using our expertise to help you do things right, you'll find the entire process wonderfully rewarding and enjoyable too.
So how do you get started? Before you decide on a builder, just call or contact us to schedule an absolutely free, “no-strings” design and budget consultation. We will discuss your project goals, your budget, and provide information and insight to help inform your decision and see if there might be a fit. No sales pitches, no pressure, and absolutely no cost or obligation to you.
If you don't already have a homesite, we'll help you find one. As both designer and builder, we look at land from a different perspective than most. We typically carry a small number of “hand-picked” premium homesites in inventory, but if we don't have the right lot for your family, we'll help you narrow down your choices and find the perfect spot. We can often negotiate favorable pricing through our long standing relationships with land developers, and we offer you the use of our real estate agent to help you make a thorough and well researched purchase that is perfect for your family. Already own your home but want to update? We will gladly stop over and give you our initial thoughts on your new remodeling or addition project.
Next, we will sit down with you and together begin the process of design, or you can bring your own plans or architect into our system. We are well-versed in many architectural styles, and are well known for our quality of design. Remember, our process is purposefully flexible in order to assure you the best possible home, the greatest value, and the most enjoyable building experience.
