Victor Stello, III began his building career as an apprentice in Potomac, Maryland, and moved to North Carolina in the 1980's. He established his framing business in Greenville in 1989 before relocating to Wilmington in 1992. A member of the Cape Fear Home Builders Association since 1993, Stello Construction has successfully built homes in New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick counties.

It is our belief that general contractors should go through an internship, much like a doctor does. This deeply ingrained attitude was established in Victor's initial training years ago, when details were important to how people built houses.

Victor's outstanding reputation for building quality homes comes from years of hands-on training.  He developed and refined an appreciation for building homes designed to prize quality and detail above everything else.  Building your dream home by establishing a relationship built on cooperation and trust is Stello Construction's primary objective.

Every home built by Stello Construction exemplifies this unwavering dedication and commitment to excellence.  The end result is a home that every member of the Stello Construction team would be proud to live in themselves. In 2014, Stello Construction won the prestigious Hanover County Parade of Homes Gold Award for their Coastal Breeze model that's part of the Cottage Collection.

Old world craftsmanship is alive and well. 
Just ask anyone of our clients.

The American dream of building a new home is an experience that can be very enjoyable and rewarding with the right builder.  When my wife and I decided to build a home, I started to research the area in selecting a builder that could take on our custom home project.  I wanted an individual that was of good quality, trustworthy, and was willing to work with me on adapting some of my ideas into the project.  I first met Victor Stello when I visited one of his jobs under construction at Figure Eight Island.  I was not only impressed with the quality of the work that I saw,  but the fact that he was a “hands on” builder and took pride in his work. 

While building my house, I found Victor to be easy to work with and dependable.  If he saw something in the quality of the job that he didn’t like, even if I thought it could get by, he would have it torn out and corrected to his satisfaction before the day was out.  This showed me that his crew knew of his high expectations and would make sure they were met daily.

I would highly recommend Victor Stello for your building needs.  I can honestly say that he was on the job from laying the house off to installing the final house numbers.

To whom it may concern:

The writer's acquaintance with Mr. Stello began two and one-half years ago as a buyer of a house in the Waterford of the Carolinas development in Brunswick County, NC.   Mr. Stello served as the construction superintendent for this project. 

On a walk-through, accompanied by my son who is a commercial building contractor, we were pleased with the overall quality, finish, and workmanship that was evident in the construction. The few minor punch-list items that we found were presented to Mr. Stello, who accepted our findings in a courteous manner and promptly had his sub-contractors remedy them.

Mr. Stello also initiated changes in the original plans of the house, which made better use of space, usefulness and added to overall comfort.  It spoke well of his experience in home-building.

My impression of Mr. Stello is that he is a caring, thoughtful person who puts the interests of his client foremost and strives to make the association both professional and pleasant. 

My lasting impression is that here's a builder who will listen to his customer; most important!

To Victor Stello,

Thank you for all of you help answering all of our questions this past year. Jennifer and I can not tell you how many compliments we get on our home on Hydrangea Court. We are constantly informed that we have "the finest home in Waterford." I have personally owned a half dozen homes, and this one is by far the best.

Your attention to detail (such as the rounded edges on all the drywall, the copper flashing used just about everywhere, and the detailed crown molding) is very refreshing to see in a builder. You obviously take pride in you work and it shows.
