The Van Metre family has been building homes in Northern Virginia for more than 60 years. Deeply rooted in this community, and connected to the people who call this area home, we are redefining what it means to be a truly local developer.
With a 60-year history of building homes in Virginia, we know the area and the people. Because our homeowners are our neighbors and friends, we are constantly reminded of the impact our work has on our shared community. In Virginia, we own every aspect of design, construction, and delivery. That gives us the control we need to ensure that every home meets our exacting standards.
Operating as usual
Remember all the little things in life—like sipping hot chocolate in front of a fireplace. Experiencing the joy (or defeat) of family game night. Curling up with a book to escape the hectic events of the day. Or creating a simple meal for those you love. Whatever delights you, now is the perfect time to stay home and get cozy with the ones you love (including the furry ones 🐶).
Happy, happy new year! ✨ Do you have any goals set for the new year?
New adventures are around the corner. Happy New Year from all of us at Van Metre!
