Lemel Homes was founded in 1983 by one man with an uncomplicated philosophy. Joe Lemel was tired of offering buyers the same model home over and over, but wanted to build customized homes without all of the high premiums other Wisconsin home builders charge. He started Lemel Homes with nothing more than a car, a phone, and some space in a friend’s office.
Growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Lemel was introduced to the real estate industry at an early age through friends of his mother. The home builders in Wisconsin that he met inspired him, and he pursued a career in the industry from early-on. He graduated from college with a degree in real estate while working for a home builder in Wisconsin who specialized in single-room family homes.
Lemel Homes offers several models from which customers can work, but Joe Lemel is most proud of the fact that they have never built the same house twice. Buyers are able to customize the starter plans to their particular specifications without the high premiums. In particular, customers can choose from ranch homes, two-story homes, and first-floor master bedroom models. They also offer Energy Star and Green homes, as well as those keyed to aging families. Lemel Homes also does remodeling for existing homes.
