Keystone Custom Homes is one of the top 100 home builders in the nation, ranked by the industry's leading trade journal, Builder Magazine, and is the first builder ever to be named America's Best Builder three times by Builder Magazine in conjunction with the National Association of Home Builders, a 200,000-member trade organization. America's Best Builder is considered the most prestigious award that a home builder can achieve.

Distinguished as Central Pennsylvania’s largest independent homebuilder, the company is building homes in 44 communities throughout Pennsylvania's Lancaster, York, Dauphin, Cumberland, Chester and Lebanon counties.

Keystone Custom Homes' success is driven by the simple philosophy to build above and beyond for customers, fellow team members and the global community.

Reflecting the company's core values, a percentage from each Keystone Custom Homes sale goes to HOPE International, a non-profit charitable network of microfinance institutions founded by Keystone Custom Homes CEO, Jeff Rutt, in 1997 in Lancaster, Pa. Only 13 years later, the now worldwide organization currently serves over 265,000 active clients. By providing small business loans and basic business training, HOPE empowers individuals to defeat poverty while preserving dignity. Because poverty disproportionately affects women and their children, HOPE International concentrates over 80 percent of its efforts on women. Jeff Rutt's ongoing leadership of HOPE earned him the national Hearthstone Builder Humanitarian Award in 2008.
