Builder Spotlight: Meet Jason!

Schaeffer FamilyThere are few things more special than sharing the feeling of home with your family. Between milestones and everyday moments, your home is the safest and most comforting place in the world. Only someone who lives and breathes the value of family knows how to build the homes that families deserve, and we’re proud to say that at Schaeffer Family Homes, that someone is none other than our wonderful leader, Jason Schaeffer.

When he first stepped into his role, the first thing that Jason did was incorporate the word “family” into the company name. “We are truly a family company. My mother still works for the company, as do my brother and wife. We have many employees who have been with us for decades and all of our employees are treated as family.” Best of all, when you buy a home with us, you become a lasting part of this Schaeffer family.

Before purchasing the family business from his mother and father in 2006, Jason worked in construction as a service and warranty manager, a sales manager, and eventually an operations manager for many years, in which he oversaw about 1,000 homes being built. Everything he’s learned about the industry through his past experiences have helped to shape his role today, and we’re grateful for the chance to learn from him every day!

Since the very beginning, Jason has put a significant emphasis on exceptional customer service. The happiness of his homeowners is his number one priority, which all starts with a rewarding building experience. Because GuildQuality provides Schaeffer Family Homes with real market research from homeowners, Jason pays special attention to what you say, so he can ensure that the work he does significantly enhances your life.

Having grown up in Berlin Borough, Jason has always been close to where our headquarters and design center are today. After spending time traveling and working after college, Jason settled into the new home industry and has been here ever since. Jason married his high school sweetheart, moved to beautiful Haddonfield, and lives there now with his wife and three sons.

It’s no surprise that Jason’s love of family and community doesn’t stop when he’s not in the office. In fact, his favorite thing to do in his free time is to enjoy moments with his family, whether that’s going on trips, relaxing at home, or attending his children’s sporting or music events. He also pursues aviation — did you know that Jason is a private pilot? If he weren’t the owner of Schaeffer Family Homes, he’d be flying planes!

When it comes to the heart and soul of your home, there are no better hands to be in than Jason’s. With an unmatched eye for aesthetics, design, and function (fun fact: Jason was given a scholarship to attend the Accademia di Bella Arti in Florence and was a professional sculptor after college), and an immense amount of love and care for his work and his homeowners, Jason is the co-pilot you want on your homebuilding journey.

All of us at Schaeffer Family Homes would love to thank Jason for being the greatest leader and inspiration of all. Our work is a fulfilling adventure each and every day, due in large part to the man that helps to make the magic happen.

Building Strong for Generations

The Schaeffer family has been committed to providing quality-built, affordably priced new homes in South Jersey for over 60 years. Starting with Thomas Schaeffer Sr., continuing through Thomas “Tim” Schaeffer Jr., and now guided by Jason Schaeffer, this dedicated clan has made homebuilding a true family affair.

While Tim worked with his father, polishing his craft and building custom homes in southern New Jersey, Tim’s son, Jason, has taken his years of experience and is shifting the company’s focus to “on your lot” building in South Jersey and at the Shore.

Various members of the Schaeffer family are involved with the company – that’s what makes us different! When you build a home with us, you work with everyone in the family (In case you’re wondering, Jason’s sons are already part of the company… he named the newest floor plans after them!).

Letting our family build for your family is a smart decision. We’ll build your home just like we build our own!

Call Schaeffer Family Homes when you’re ready to build the home of your dreams. We’ll build what you want, where you want.

As a newer member of the team, he has a unique perspective on working here. “It’s a great environment, and I’m fortunate to be a part of it! I’m looking forward to helping people find a place to spend their lives. I’m also excited about the fact that there’s a picture of Vanilla Ice that randomly appears somewhere in the office!”

Prior to joining Schaeffer Family Homes, Josh most recently worked as a sales associate for Berkshire Hathaway Fox & Roach, Realtors® selling resale residential homes, new construction, and land.
