We strive to put together a team of experts focused on building and marketing the best quality homes at the best prices. Our team has a thorough understanding of the home building and selling process and, as a result, we successfully build over 100 homes every year. Our developments are located in some of the most desirable locations – from the Camas area to Vancouver. We’ve also been listed as one of the top 25 residential construction firms in the greater Portland area.
At Talbitzer Homes, discussions regarding construction practices are held directly with individual homeowners before, during and after the construction of their new home. At Talbitzer, we strongly believe that not only is it important to have a good relationship with our home buyers, but with our sub-contractors and suppliers as well. We have spent over 30 years developing business AND personal relationships with our sub-contractors and feel that these long term relationships provide future homeowners with the best quality at the best prices.
Talbitzer Homes is led by Howard Talbitzer. He has been in the Portland/Vancouver area most of his life and offers many years of experience building and marketing homes in the Portland/Vancouver area. Unlike many of the builders in the marketplace today, Talbitzer Homes is locally-owned and operated with a team consisting of locally-raised individuals.
At Talbitzer Homes, our motto is “Do what you say you’re going to do.” This emphasizes our commitment to our staff, our sub-contractors and, most of all, to our customers.
Next, create your wish list. Look at magazines for paint colors, interior trims, appliances and cabinets. Find out what it is you would like to see in your home. What kind of options would be important for your lifestyle? For instance, if you have a hot tub, you will need to make sure the home is built with the correct wiring for that. This list will be helpful as you consider your options.
Don’t make assumptions about what you can and can’t afford! Talk to a loan officer to find out what price range they can pre-qualify you for and what your credit score is. Yes, I said it…credit score. DON’T LET THIS SCORE INTIMIDATE YOU! There are many financing programs out there that understand that no one is perfect and that will accommodate a wide variety of financial situations.
Be sure to ask about loan programs that may be beneficial to first time homebuyers. Remember that the loan officer is there to help you. If you don’t know which bank to speak with, builders usually have preferred lenders that work hard to help people own their home.
We as a builder warrant that the dwelling will be free of defects in materials or workmanship as measured by acceptable trade practices in the Clark County area. This warranty continues for a period of one year from the date of conveyance of title to the buyer.

This warranty covers Designated Structural Elements for six years from the effective date. These elements are detailed for our buyers in a book received at closing or at the link below.

“Two years ago my son and I needed to find a home but I needed to stay in the Camas area so that my son would not need to change schools. We found a new location that was in the area that we wanted and the price range we could afford. We went into the model home and met Joan Nigro. Right off the bat, my son and I felt comfortable. Joan was very welcoming and helful through the entire process. The contractors were very patient with the changes I made through the building of our home and had answers for all my questions. About 4 months later, my son and I were living in a Talbitzer townhome in a great neighborhood.
It has been two years since we moved in and life has dealt us another hand. We now want to extend our family and need more room. My son and I love our home, so when my mother told me that Talbitzer was building a new community in Camas, we had to see what they had to offer. When we got there Joan met us with a smile and open arms. Needless to say, we should be living in our second Talbitzer home in about 4 months!”
