We've Been Around the Block a Few Times...
in many cases we built the block!

For the past 35 years, Chase Custom Homes & Finance, Inc. has been building homes in Maine. We have developed many subdivisions throughout southern, central and western Maine and more importantly, built homes for a lot of fine people and their families. Maine is a big state with a small town heart. If we didn't take good care of our clients, we wouldn't still be in business. Period.

After 34 years, we remain a small, family-owned business and tight-knit team. Our business has survived two recessions and downturns in the real estate market. In an industry often associated with mistrust, we've built a steady stream of repeat business from customer referrals. Chase Custom Homes has built more than one home for many of our clients. Our goal is to build relationships as well as we build homes.

We Value Quality

Not all builders are created equal. At Chase Custom Homes we promise not to cut corners. We want your home to be built to last, using only the best quality products possible while working within your budget. We have several strategies in place to make that happen and you'll be impressed with what we can offer!

Meet the Team

John F. Chase

Owner & CEO

After a successful career with the Westbrook Police Department detective unit, John decided to pursue his interest in real estate development and construction. Growing up in Portland, he was inspired by his grandfather who was a local painter and carpenter. He would tell him, "Johnny, if you're going to do something, you better do it right." He established Chase Custom Homes & Finance in 1986. John has also held his mortgage license and is licensed real estate broker. He's always looking for the next promising parcel of land to develop or a commercial space to transform into a thriving new business. He enjoys spending free time with his family at the lake.

Josh Chase

Vice President

Josh joined the business at a young age. He worked his way up from laborer to construction foreman. His role is hands-on, he is in the field and in the office, communicating with subcontractors, vendors, and customers. He enjoys taking clients from the very start to the very finish steps of the home building process. Josh also manages the Auto Shine Car Wash locations in Topsham and Windham. In his off-time Josh likes to take his Tracker fishing boat out to chase the thrill of bass fishing with his son by his side.
