Best Home Developer 2024

Untitled Design

We are grateful to have been awarded the title of 2024’s  “Best Home Developer” in Bohemian’s Best of the North Bay reader’s poll for Sonoma County.

Winners across a myriad of categories, including home improvement, were selected exclusively by the readers of this hyper-local publication.  This is the second year running that we’ve been selected to receive this award and are very thankful to our Sonoma County community for recognizing Christopherson Builders as their favorite home development company.  Brenda Christopherson was interviewed by the Bohemian last year, and she took us on a trip down memory lane, while discussing new and noteworthy initiatives moving forward at Christopherson Builders today.  Read the article here.

We are excited that our home-grown, locally owned and family operated general contracting business is still a contender amid many larger national corporations entering and building in the North Bay, especially given all of the residential growth that Santa Rosa is experiencing and has been experiencing for the past few years!

Explore the winner’s gallery (you might see some folks you know), and take a look at all of the reader’s picks for some insightful and celebrated recommendations from the people who know best.

Several of our team members were able to celebrate at the winner’s event last night.  Here are some photos of the fun!

New homes in Santa Rosa are on the rise.  With considerable growth North of the Bay Area, the city of Santa Rosa is embracing multi-family housing and the construction of accessory dwelling units (ADUs) on property that already houses a min residence.

In the single family home market, the majority of homes in Sonoma County were built prior to 2005, therefore much of the buying and selling home inventory in Santa Rosa consists of homes that are 20 years old and older.  The post-fire rebuild has changed the percentage of new homes in Sonoma County, yet comparatively the margin of homes that can be considered “new” are slim.  That’s one of the many reasons we are really looking forward to breaking ground on new homes in Santa Rosa and beyond.

We have several new home communities on the horizon, from luxury apartments in Healdsburg that will be offered as rentals, to multi-family and single family homes in Windsor, to our niche new home community in Fountaingrove that just broke ground – Carlile Place.  Interest lists are forming for our new homes, so if you are interested in staying in the know about our communities, please sign up!  We will be keeping our web pages for our new home communities up to date, so you will always find the most recent information directly on our website!

Christopherson Builders has a proud legacy in home building, and the Christophersons have been recognized again and again throughout the years for their expertise, commitment and quality.  One of the awards that Keith and Brenda are proudest of is their receipt of the JD Power Excellence Award.  Of course, what matters most is the wonderful feedback we have received over the years from happy customers, clients and business partners.  Take a look some of the things that our prior home buyers, home building clients, investors and building partners have had to say about their experiences with us.

Bohemian 2024Our sincere thanks to our community for choosing their locally grown, small batch, artisan home builder as Santa’s Rosa’s contractor of choice.  We take pride in designing developments that enhance our beautiful hometown, and crafting communities that residents will be happy to call home for years to come.
