WE ARE NEW BUT WE HAVE HISTORY
Stafford Homes and Land started when our two Principals, both developers; combined their efforts and began to seek out parcels of land for redevelopment. As Stafford Land Company succeeded in procuring build-able properties, the new 'homes' division was established and put to task. The first projects slated for construction were to replace run down, neighborhood eyesores with fine new homes that would enhance the blocks they inhabited. It was a good first step. People truly loved the homes we crafted, especially the ‘1920’s Sears Catalog Bungalow’ reinterpretation built on Harney Street in Portland. In fact that home sold the first day on the market
The desire to do NEW HOME CONSTRUCTION IN A NEW WAY matched up when there were a few choice parcels that begged for the type of homes we wanted to build. The QUESTION being “Do we sell the land to others or develop it ourselves?” ANSWER: We can do this! With that we began to build our first ‘community project’ in autumn 2014.
Our communities in Molalla, Canby, Silverton and Forest Grove showed us that buyers are truly excited to purchase a smarter, better built home. We also developed the 2016 NW Natural Street of Dreams event site, and built two award-winning homes for the show in Tumwater at Pete's Mountain. From building luxury estates to easy living ranch homes; we craft energy efficient, well-engineered homes that offer fresh new floor plans and real value. They are the very homes we enjoy building and what we want to live in.
GREAT TEAMWORK REQUIRES VISION
Our departments are firmly established in Development, Site Planning, Procurement and Job Supervision. But we would not be here if not for our dynamic principals who constantly look toward the horizon, seeking a better path.
Getting to know them is a joy:
We want our home buyers to be well represented. The expert staff at New Home Realty will carry your home purchase through with ease. Unlike most real estate companies that focus on resale properties, New Home Realty is specialized in new construction home sales. It is all they do.

“My experience with Stafford was exceptional from start to finish. Everyone was quickly accessible to answer questions or address issue during the building process. The finish work was exceptional and the attention to detail outstanding. Bryce and his crew were always checking with us to make sure we were pleased with the progress and the work. We even made a couple of last minute changes that were handled with no issues. We are very pleased with our new home and we are now considering building another home with Stafford! This happy family gives them 5 gold stars!”

"Dear Gordon & Rick:
We recently closed a new construction home located at 712 Pintail St. in Silverton. At the end of the transaction we were able to work with Jamie Ruff. He was a pleasure to work with and returned calls and texts promptly. Jamie was able to see that the transaction closed a day early so the buyer could move in in a timely fashion. Thanks again to Jamie for his excellent customer care!"

LEAVE A LEGACY. Yes that is correct. Consider this for your terms of sale. We know that many properties have a family story running generations long. Your family name can live on in the developed project's marketed naming.
