Owner and CEO Karl Haslinger began building custom homes in 1985 and founded Essex Homes, Inc. in 1993. Essex has increased its market share every year in the Columbia area and has now expanded to the Charlotte metro area.
Essex is sure to have the perfect design to fit your lifestyle. In keeping with current market trends, the builder continually reinvents its product line using a number of original designs. Essex provides buyers the experience of a custom home at an affordable price by offering a wide array of included features and options.
Columbia Home Builders Association’s Sales & Marketing Council selected Essex Homes as Builder Executive of the Year several years in a row. The company was also listed in the Top 100 Builders in the nation by Builder Magazine. However, Essex is most proud of winning the Guildmaster with Distinction Award. This award recognizes the company’s customer service satisfaction rating of 96 percent – which it often exceeds.
