About Us

The J Paul Story

When we started our company, we dedicated ourselves to improving the lives of our Clients, our Communities and our Team. We are humbled and inspired by the families who have invited us into their lives to help create the home of their dreams. We think what we do is much more than building homes: we are committed to creating special places, enhancing lives, and life experiences. Home is the place where great memories are made and dreams are fulfilled, and we are honored each and every time a client chooses to partner with our team in the homebuilding process. We encourage you to talk to our clients to learn about their experiences, and we hope you will strongly consider our team as you look to build the home of your dreams.

With deepest respect,

Steven Lichter and Paul Lichter, J Paul Builders

Discover Yet Another Key to J Paul Builders' Success:   

Our Proximity To Your Special Project! 

When it comes to crafting exceptional luxury custom homes, renovations, and major additions, the significance of J Paul Builders' focus cannot be overstated. What's yet another secret behind our resounding success? It all boils down to one vital factor: Location. Location. Location. Nestled in the heart of Baltimore County, just a stone's throw away from Baltimore City, Carroll, and Anne Arundel Counties, J Paul Builders finds itself perfectly situated in Pikesville, Maryland. Most importantly, our prime location forms the very foundation of J Paul's unwavering commitment to excellence. 

So the question is …. Why J Paul? Simply put, "with J Paul, the love is never lost amidst the layers." Steven Lichter, Vice President of J Paul Builders. This sentiment captures the essence of J Paul's unique perspective, where we believe that a successful outcome hinges on a highly interactive build process filled with countless decisions and unexpected twists and turns. These elements profoundly influence both the final result of the home build and, most importantly, the client's experience. 

We believe in breaking down barriers and fostering a deep, meaningful connection with our discerning clientele. Therefore, the true difference lies in the unparalleled, direct and meaningful access we provide, and the profound relationships forged with J Paul's owners, Paul and Steven Lichter. We understand that layers of intermediaries and physical distance hinder the crucial access our esteemed clients deserve. Not only do these physical and management barriers impose unnecessary costs, but they also compromise the overall luxury home-build experience. 

At J Paul Builders, we are dedicated to ensuring that every aspect of your project is meticulously executed to perfection. By choosing a builder who's proximate to your project -- we maintain direct involvement in every step along the way. As such, we go above and beyond to deliver a truly exceptional outcome and an unforgettable journey for our valued clients.
