Our History

Eastwood Homes has been in the business of providing homes of exceptional quality at reasonable prices since 1977. The company has seen a great deal of change over the years, but their commitment to conducting business with integrity has never been questioned.

Our Legacy

Founded by Joseph K. Stewart in 1977, Eastwood Homes is a privately held residential builder with consistent track record of industry success and financial health. After graduating from Appalachian State University and serving in the U.S. Army, it was Joe's dream to build reasonably priced homes of superior quality, while maintaining a focus on conducting business with integrity. Unlike national builders, he was determined never to be driven by Wall Street profits, but instead by his desire to exceed the expectation of buyers by delighting them in every step of the building process. 

40 years later, Joe, his son and business partner Clark Stewart, and the entire management team at Eastwood Homes work together to carry on this dream. With corporate headquarters in Charlotte, NC, Eastwood Homes now serves communities throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

The company is proud to be both the builder of choice and employer of choice. Celebrating 40 years of industry success and commitment to our homebuyers, Eastwood continues to ensure that each and every home is "Built with Care." At Eastwood Home, Built with Care is more than just a slogan; it's what drives us every single day, and what makes a difference for our buyers. 

 

Our Mission

Driven by integrity and our core values, we build homes of exceptional value and outstanding craftsmanship while delivering unparalleled customer service. Our purpose is to ensure our Customers, Employees, and Trade Partners will recommend us with confidence, inspiring every homeowner to say "Eastwood Homes, That's My Builder."

 

Our Growth

Eastwood Homes has experienced steady growth over their many years in the business. Expansions have been well-thought-out, stable, and calculated. Since the owner and founder is a Carolina native, his personal knowledge of the region has aided in the successful expansion of Eastwood Homes. Each of the 6 divisions of Eastwood Homes has a slightly different appeal, despite their relatively close proximity to the headquarters in Charlotte. Although you will find varying personalities across the regions, all divisions have the same mission – to build homes of exceptional value and outstanding craftsmanship while delivering unparalleled customer service. Activities in all divisions are still monitored by the founder himself, providing a true hometown appeal to all communities.

In 2017, Eastwood Homes announced the acquisition of Fortress Builders, a privately-held builder headquartered in Columbia, SC. An industry-recognized leader in new home construction, Fortress Builders offers a broad range of products, move-in ready homes, and a state-of-the-art Design Studio (much like Eastwood). For now, Eastwood Homes plans to maintain the legacy Fortress Builders has created. Eventually, Fortress Builders will transition to the Eastwood Homes, Columbia SC division where Eastwood will continue its commitment to be a Builder of Integrity and ensure that each and every home is Built with Care.
