Payne Family Homes Marks 12th Anniversary


Payne Family Homes is proud to celebrate its 12th anniversary of building innovative, memorable homes that consistently transcend expectations. Founded in 2007 by David Payne, 30-year President and CEO of PayneCrest Electric, Payne Family Homes has grown exponentially and earned numerous industry and professional awards, both locally and nationally.

Payne Family Homes has been investing in the St. Louis area by designing, developing and building homes and communities throughout St. Louis, St. Charles and Jefferson Counties for over 10 years. We have achieved our goal of becoming the second largest homebuilder in the St. Louis area knowing that this position perfectly aligns to our market segment.  Our approach to being a good community partner mirrors our approach to building homes – we want to do all we can to make the St Louis region joyfully livable. To that end, we are active participants in a number of community events, with a special emphasis on our ongoing commitment to the Alzheimer’s Association and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We are proud to be the builders of the St. Jude Dream Home for the 6th consecutive year in the St. Louis area.

We have assembled a team of 80+ employees to manage the acquisition, development, construction and sales of the 260+ homes we annually deliver to our homebuyers. Our Executive Team shares more than 80 years’ experience in the Homebuilding Industry. We have relied on our team of professionals to stay ahead of the trends and identify the best practices for Payne Family Homes to stay relevant in the St. Louis marketplace.

Payne Family Homes currently offers carefree villas, garden condos, ranch, 1.5 story, and 2-story homes in 16 active communities across the area. Additionally, Payne Family Homes is in development with plans to open two more new home communities in 2019 – Alexander Woods in Chesterfield and Talamore Square in Frontenac. Talamore Square will be the first Payne neighborhood to offer Uptown Townhomes.

Each Payne Family Home is designed around the most important feature in any home – your family. Our award-winning floor plans provide stunning sight lines that make our homes feel so much bigger than others of the same square footage. The openness of our floor plans allows you to see the café area, the great room fireplace, catch a glimpse of the dining room table, and a view down the hallway of the front entry.

We take great care to include thoughtfully placed windows that fill the space with air and light. And, because every little thing matters to you, it matters to us. From fully-sodded yards, to superior wall paint, Frigidaire appliances, Kohler plumbing fixtures… our included features convey a level of attention to detail that sophisticated home buyers expect.

As we mark our own anniversary celebration, it reminds us why we are so passionate about home building. We thank you – our customers – for inviting us into your most prized purchase. We thank you for allowing us to serve your family and craft the home in which you will celebrate your own holidays, traditions and anniversaries. We thank you for making our house your home.
