I believe that a good leader knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. I love listening to the dreams of our clients and sharing my suggestions and advice based on my 15 years as a custom home builder. Ask any of the 100+ home owners I’ve worked with, and they’ll confirm that I can honestly, ethically and creatively lead them from dreams to doorways. Come meet with me and let the building begin!

John Joy, Founder of Joy Build Design

Based in McLean, Virginia, I have been in the business of building dream homes since 2003. With over one hundred years of combined experience in real estate production and development, the Joy team create one-of-a-kind homes designed around your vision.

I learned about construction from my father, a commercial real estate developer in the Washington, DC area, and spent more than 25 years as a real estate agent before realizing that builders weren’t listening to the market needs of their demographic. At the time, I had difficulty finding homes for my clients that would suit not only where they were at that point in their lives, but also anticipate future needs to enable them to age in place.

I started my own company. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Whether it’s a new home from the ground up, or re-imagining your current one, Joy Design + Build provides an experienced, full-service team of “custom concierges” including an architect, a project manager, design coordinator, landscape architect and lender.

With over 100 custom homes built in the McLean and North Arlington communities, the Joy standard of excellence continues to be recognized, as evidenced by the innumerable awards and accolades earned from industry associations.

With every project, I will listen to what you want. I know how to negotiate to find the right property, bring in the best architect, build for maximum sun exposure and create that “wow” factor. I anticipate your life changes and embed them into every project so you can remain in your dream home until it’s time to cash in on your inspired investment.

Give me a few hours, “on my dime,” and I will bring your vision to life. That’s my promise.
