Our Story

Our Story

For over 25 years, Arbor Homes has been a leading new home construction builder having built more than 16,000 new homes in Central Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.  Founded in 1994, President Curtis Rector, started Arbor Homes with a commitment to build great neighborhoods and deliver quality homes at affordable prices allowing families to celebrate life’s best moments.  

Arbor Homes is driven to increase home ownership.  In 2004, Arbor founded its sister company, Silverthorne Homes, to offer a luxurious, move up home line with high-end features as an alternative option for home buyers.   Arbor Homes joined Berkshire Hathaway's Clayton Properties Group in 2018 to continue to make the dream of home ownership a reality by delivering high quality homes at a great value.

In recent years, Arbor Homes has acquired Louisville based Elite Homes, expanded into Kentucky and Ohio and introduced their first low-maintenance communities and product, Destination by Arbor Homes.
