As a third generation Realtor® and builder, along with over 25 years' experience in custom home building, Jonathan Chiott (pronounced "shot") and his team bring beautifully crafted new homes to the Charlotte landscape. Jonathan comes from a large family and boasts his three children are his greatest accomplishment.
Jonathan's education in construction started at the early age of 13, when he began working for his father's home building company in Asheville. With broom in hand, he swept and cleaned up after construction crews. By the time he was in high school Jonathan was adept at such trades as framing, roofing and interior trim and had a clear working knowledge of all the primary elements of residential construction. After high school, Jonathan attended Appalachian State University where he earned degrees in both finance and real estate. Upon graduating he became a licensed real estate broker and general contractor, moved to Charlotte and began working in sales and marketing for a national home builder.
In 1994, putting his knowledge and experience to practice, Jonathan started his own company, Chiott Custom Homes. He began building in the Lake Norman area, expanding to South Charlotte and eventually settled "in-town" in the Myers Park, Eastover, and Foxcroft neighborhoods.
Though the company was growing and had already earned a reputation for skill and integrity, Jonathan desired something more and different. He wanted the company to truly be known for building custom homes. Understanding that most new trends start on the West Coast first, including those associated with home building, Jonathan and his father routinely traveled to California to stay ahead of the competition. They noticed that West Coast builders were tearing down old houses in highly desirable neighborhoods and replacing them with beautiful new custom homes. This practice, called infill, was something not often seen in the Southeast at the time, making Chiott Custom Homes one of the first companies to successfully introduce this process into the Charlotte market.
Jonathan and his team build a wide range of styles and sizes, varying from cottage style bungalows to larger transitional and modern homes. While roughly half of these are built specifically for clients, the others are designed and built to sell, rarely lasting long on the market.
"We're absolutely committed to building every home with the highest level of quality and value. Our focus is on the integrity of our homes, our team and our reputation. We pride ourselves on building homes and relationships that last a lifetime."
We value our clients and trade partners and that’s why we measure our success by their experience. Our relationships are staked on mutual respect, customer service, and satisfaction with the final product. Reputation is our company’s currency and we are only as good as our last client’s experience. Here are some testimonials from just a few of our valued clients and partners.
You and your team are truly talented craftsmen. The final product is stunning and we are proud to be associated with Chiott Custom Homes. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your program.
We've enjoyed a great working relationship with Chiott Custom Homes for many years. The building process can be challenging, but dealing with true pros like Chiott Custom Homes keeps all the difficult parts of the process to a minimum through their great communication and professionalism. We always know where we stand and the way Chiott handles their business leads to a finished product that's second to none. We're very proud to be a part of that!
We at Interior Woods have been installing fine woodwork for Chiott Custom Homes for the last 12 years. They have repeatedly proven themselves to be a builder with a high degree of integrity and a complete understanding of the entire process that's needed to build an amazing home.
As Chiott's post construction cleaning and detailing vendor, Detailed Interiors sees the fine craftsmanship of these estate homes up close. Each tailored home includes thoughtfully designed floor plans and features that are truly built for the specific needs of each owner. What also sets them apart is the commitment Jonathan and his team have to their clients and vendors. They have always been highly ethical and loyal. Their pride shines through brightly on every home they design and build.
The professionalism and experience of Chiott Custom Homes is displayed in their ability to tune in to the exquisite details, high quality materials and commitment afforded such quality designs and customers. Their team displays great communication, quality project management and prompt payment which sets them firmly in a class of custom home builders all their own.
We appreciate the quality of workmanship Chiott provided as well as the total professionalism of their staff. I could not recommend them more highly as a builder. Jonathan was originally our builder, but he also became our neighbor and friend. I would welcome the opportunity to work with him, and the rest of the Chiott team, to build another home in the future. The quality of the home is excellent. I do not recall even a single issue after we moved in and have had no problems since then.
Jonathan and his team at Chiott Custom Homes built our current home in 2001. Our house is very large and full of custom architectural features. Despite our apprehension of building, Jonathan made the process not only successful, but enjoyable. Even this many years after, Jonathan has always been available to give us advice and direction. You will not find anyone as kind, knowledgeable and determined to attain your satisfaction as Jonathan and his team at Chiott.
After an exhaustive research of custom home builders, we decided on Jonathan and his team at Chiott Custom Homes. They completed our home on time, on budget and exceeded my quality expectations at every turn. There is no one more creative or resourceful when it comes to handling construction challenges and solutions. Chiott's attention to detail and insistence on quality over the entire project and sub contractors was clear from start to finish.
