About Longleaf

Superior Quality

Over the years, Longleaf has built an established team of contractors and suppliers to ensure new homes are built to our high standards, using quality materials. Our on-site project managers track timelines, visually verify materials, and finishes prior to installation. Our checks and balances system, along with our fixed-pricing ensure each project is finished on time and within budget.

The Longleaf Name

Our name is in honor of the majestic Longleaf Pine, a stately tree that can soar to 120-feet tall and live for over 500 years. Longleaf Pines are known for their strength and straightness, as well as fostering one of the most diverse ecosystems on earth. It is in the spirit of the that towering tree, Longleaf Communities designs and builds magnificent homes that stand the test of time.
