6 Reasons Why American West is Different

At American West, we strive to build beautiful homes that our homeowners will enjoy for many years to come. To us, that means providing incomparable quality and value that you’ll never want to leave. We are dedicated to what makes us different from other homebuilders, and this difference is seen in every home we build.

1. America’s Most Included Homes
American West is known for building America’s Most Included Homes, meaning that the features included in our new homes are considered extras or upgrades for most other builders. We believe you deserve these luxury features, not as an option, but as a standard.

2. Locally-Owned
We don’t just build here, we live and work here too! American West is committed to Las Vegas, and we’re here to stay. Just like his employees, company founder, Larry Canarelli, is committed to this incredible city, having raised his own family here. We know the local area better than any anyone else, which helps us build you the right home, in the right location.

3. A Builder You Can Trust

We pride ourselves on the numerous referrals and repeat homebuyers that work with us. Our heart and soul is put into each community and home we build, and the difference is evident in every single detail, no matter how small.

4. Your Home, Your Way, Not Ours
Your new home is where you will live and not where we will live. Unlike other builders, we let YOU select your home, on the homesite YOU want. We go above and beyond, so you have the ability to choose the unique design features of your home. From the exterior style, color and landscaping of your home to interior automation options like sound, security and home theatres, the possibilities for your dream home are endless.

5. The Homebuilding Experience
A huge factor in our reputation as one of the most successful homebuilders in the nation is our excellent customer care. For us, it’s not only about the end result, but the entire home building experience. Not many other builders can say they have community models for every floor plan we sell. We provide our buyers with all the resources and guidance they need to make the best decisions for their new home, and we’re with you every step of the way.

Our commitment to superior quality is shown through the beauty and splendor of every home we build.

Home is Where Memories Are Made

A home is much more than 4 walls and a roof. It is where your child learns to crawl and then walk. It is where they learn to swim or throw a basketball. It is where your children grow. Home is where family and friends gather to help celebrate the milestones in your life. Home is where the memories of your life are made.

Think of a happy childhood memory. More than likely, that memory revolves around the home you grew up in. A home that was filled with love and joy. A home that your parents were proud to own. Why should you settle for anything less now? Owning a new home should give you a sense of pride. There is a reason homeownership is called the American Dream.

American West believes in building homes and not just houses. Over the past 30 years, we have welcomed more than 16,000 homeowners into our family and have been privileged to be a part of many heartfelt memories. We know how important a home and homeownership is to everyone. You may think that the most important thing about purchasing a new home is the best deal you can get. We believe it should be more about the type of value and quality you are getting when purchasing that home. Don’t you want the confidence that 20 years from now whether you are sending your child off to college, watching your first grandchild crawl on your floor, or enjoying your retirement years, that your home is still the envy of all your family and friends? Don’t you want reassurance that the quality and value of your home is still there? American West stands behind the belief that there should be no other answer than, “yes” and the proof of that can be found in every home that we build.

Quality Assurance

American West’s first step to quality is making sure our homebuyer’s questions are answered and that they understand the sales and construction process. In addition to a sales and escrow representative, a Quality Assurance Manger is assigned to every home we build. Together with the construction team, they will provide specific expertise throughout construction.

The Quality Assurance Manager specializes in construction techniques and procedures. He meets with inspectors and architects to make sure your new home is built and finished to the highest standards. The Quality Assurance Manager’s primary job is to insure that your new home meets the highest construction standards required by American West.

Upon completion of the home, your Quality Assurance Manager will take you through a room to room New Home Demonstration. He will familiarize you with all of the home features and components. “It’s very important that our buyers feel comfortable with all of  the working components of their new home. It’s a great feeling to deliver a home that you’re proud to be a part of,” Ron Reynolds, American West Quality Assurance Manager.

At American West, we are committed to excellence. Part of that commitment is providing “Quality Assurance” that insures that each and every home is built to American West’s strict construction standards. A commitment that each of our homebuyers get to experience day after day. This is the American West difference.
