Paul Lichter

Founder & President

Paul Lichter's remarkable journey in the construction industry is a testament to going from humble beginnings to reaching the pinnacle of success. Back in 1980, Paul's father, Jules Lichter, Esq., a prominent attorney in Baltimore, managed to secure him a job with a renowned track-home builder. Now, let's just say Paul's first task involved a lot of sweeping of job site floors – talk about starting from the bottom!

But Paul's enthusiasm and quick learning abilities propelled him forward. He immersed himself in the world of construction, absorbing knowledge about various trades and even taking on project management responsibilities. As he gained more experience, Paul's appetite for challenges grew, and he yearned to create homes of the highest quality. 

Fortune smiled upon Paul when he was presented with an incredible opportunity to work as a Project Manager for Toll Brothers, the national homebuilder. It was there that he honed his skills in systems, processes, and discipline, mastering the art of delivering luxury homes to market on time, within budget, and with higher quality.

In 1991, Paul's dream came true when he founded J Paul Builders. From that point on, he embarked on a mission to craft extraordinary custom homes for Baltimore's most distinguished and notable residents. By focusing solely on the highest quality homes, Paul and his team established themselves as a reliable choice for acclaimed architects, designers, and tradespeople in the region. The accolades poured in, and the company grew in both size and reputation.

To Paul's pleasant surprise, in 2013, his son Steven graduated from the University of Maryland and joined the family business. Together, they formed an unbeatable father-and-son duo, with Paul as the President. Working side-by-side, they continue to create awe-inspiring luxury custom homes, remodels, and major renovations.

With over three decades in the industry, Paul has become a pillar of the community. When he's not busy crafting architectural wonders, you can find him cherishing moments with his wife, children, and grandchildren. Paul's interests extend beyond construction, as he finds joy in music, reading, travel, and hiking.
