I personally put my heart and soul into every home we build. Our homebuyers see the quality and value we are known for when they walk through our homes.”

“We are a local, involved builder who understands and cares about this city because it is our home too. How do other national builders know how Las Vegas homeowners live in their homes? I know because I live here too,” said Canarelli. ” I personally have been living and building new homes in Las Vegas since 1984 and understand better than anyone what the families of Las Vegas are looking for in their new home design. American West has a proven track record of success and we are a builder you can trust. We are here in the same city our homeowners live in and we are here to stay.”

One Of The Reasons We Are Different

There are many things that set American West Homes apart from other homebuilders. One important item is that we are private, local homebuilder. This means that everyone at American West including our Company Founder, Larry Canarelli lives in Las Vegas just like our homeowners. By living in Las Vegas, Larry gets the opportunity to go out to our communities and sales offices on a regular basis and check in with not only our sales people. but on our models and on the homes under construction.

When was the last time you saw an Owner, CEO, President, etc. from another homebuilder walking their models or personally greeting a new homebuyer? Larry was just out this past weekend – this is a regular sight at our sales offices and models.

Celebrating 31 Years Homebuilding

On August 14, 2015, American West will be celebrating 31 years of homebuilding in Las Vegas. There is no other local builder who has been building new homes for this long in Southern Nevada. We are one of the nation’s largest privately owned homebuilders.

Larry Canarelli’s, American West Homes Company Founder, dream was to build beautiful homes for the families of Las Vegas, In the past 31 years, that dream has been realized by over 17,000 homeowners we have welcomed into a new American West home and over 100 new home communities we have built in Las Vegas.

“I love Las Vegas,” said Larry Canarelli. “I think this is a wonderful place to live and raise a family,  and I always have.

Our commitment to making a better Las Vegas is seen in each of the homes we have built since day one.” American West has won numerous local and national architectural design awards since its beginnings in 1984.

“We want to see Las Vegas continue to develop where quality of life is preserved and enhanced, at its highest possible level,” said Canarelli. For us, that starts with making our communities absolutely beautiful. We do that in part with superior architectural designs, greenbelts, entry monumentation, state-of-the-art schools and larger yards. As a home builder, we have the opportunity to benefit the community in many ways. By helping schools, building parks and being involved with community programs, we can help provide an environment where people feel comfortable raising their children.”
