The Sterling Way

Who We ARE

Acclaimed Building Veterans

Sterling Homes originated when acclaimed veterans of the building industry joined forces to bring a variety of vibrant, single family and townhome developments to Idaho. Look out for our new homes, coming soon to Treasure Valley.

Sterling Homes is a family owned company and we understand how important it is to use local expertise when designing new homes. We’ve partnered with some of Treasure Valley’s top professionals.

Sterling Homes are built by a local development team who is invested in and understands the needs of the community and its residents. Making a quality built home that enhances and integrates with the community is a primary focus. Sterling Home owners can rest assured knowing that they will have local representatives and support should they ever need anything.
