Founded in 1998 by Richmond native Pat Harris, Homesmith sets the style for interesting homes in Central Virginia. With a wide portfolio of fully customizable homes, our goal is to build beautiful homes and offer a terrific buying experience. Our success is built on three simple principles:

Right People

Good customer service starts with trust. Owner Pat Harris and his crew are committed to building long-term relationships. We pay attention to the details to make sure we get every house right.

Right Process

Utilizing the experience of our team, we’ve developed a process that is both streamlined and efficient. We work with you through every phase, making it both fun and easy for you to get a home customized to your unique lifestyle.

Right Materials

From the premium materials that make up the bones of your house to the quality of finishes that adorn the home, we build homes with an equal eye toward style and functionality – all at an unbeatable price point.


Our mission is to set the standard for building quality homes in Richmond. We want to build homes that look nice but that are also built with integrity – the kind of homes that make people say, “They don’t build them like that anymore.”
We believe building a home should be fun, and our goal is to build exactly what you want without any unpleasant surprises. We strive to be open and forthright about every detail that goes into your home.
You’ll work directly with Pat Harris to design your one of a kind elevation, drawn by our exclusive architect using your ideas and “must haves”. With included features such as hardwood floors in all first floor living areas to granite in all master baths, our detail-oriented team will take great care to include luxurious touches from floor to ceiling, inside and out.
