About Us

Our Core Values

Be legendary

We want to be the hero in a story you tell the rest of your life. We want the Verity brand name to hold a special place in the hearts and minds of our customers….How? By doing whatever it takes to do the best job possible. By always showing up on time with a positive attitude. By giving genuine thanks to our customers, our trade partners, our investors and our fellow team members.

Protect it

We maintain a culture of safety, whether it’s on a job site wearing hard hats and tying off on scaffolding, or in the office ensuring our customers feel comfortable entrusting us to build their dream home. We communicate openly and honestly. We protect everyone from customers to trade partners to investors. Building Peace of Mind starts with keeping the entire process safe for all involved.

Find the win 4x

Our customers must win. Our trade & supply partners in the field must win. Our Verity team must win. And our shareholders must win. To be the builder new customers and partners seek out and ask to work with, work for and represent, we find creative solutions where everyone involved in the process wins and enjoys Verity-level Peace of Mind.

Peace of mind guarantee

1. Unexpectedly stress free Experience

Yes, your home is likely to be the single biggest financial investment of your life… but that doesn’t mean it should be stressful (and our experience proves it can actually be the exact opposite). At Verity Homes, we’ve developed a fun, personally guided process that clears away the stress to make room for your creativity to flourish. You will work one-on-one with a New Home Specialist from day one until closing. Your emails, calls and texts will always be answered. Your questions will never be unwelcome. To build peace of mind, we deliver not just a satisfactory customer experience… we promise to give you an unexpectedly stress-free experience.

2. Open, honest communication

It’s literally in our name – Verity is defined by “the quality or state of being true or real,” and we live up to our namesake. If we don’t, we give you the power to call us out on it. In fact, we believe so strongly in treating you like the adult you are, we’ve created our own set of standards called “The Verity Homes Rules of Engagement” that governs how we communicate with our customers. It’s an adult agreement that promises three things:

1.Honesty Over Ego
2.Transparency Over Confusion
3.Reality Over Fantasy

3. Your home, on budget and on time

We’re not building your neighbor’s home. We’re building your home… with your budget and your timeline in mind. When you build with Verity Homes, you get a home perfected just for you, your budget and your desired move-in date. We promise to keep our collective feet planted firmly in reality so no surprises pop up, no budgets get blown and no deadlines get passed. Working together, between the two of us the only thing we won’t be able to control is the weather.

How do we keep our promises?

A promise made is nothing but an empty promise… until it turns into a promise kept. At Verity Homes, we make these three promises to you to build peace of mind. And to make sure we keep our promises, we’re putting some skin in the game. At the end of the building process, when the final paperwork is being signed and we’re turning over the keys to your new home, we will ask you to hold us accountable with the following three questions. You will be the judge of whether or not we kept our promises… and if we haven’t , your first month’s mortgage payment is on us. That’s peace of mind.

-Was your building experience with Verity Homes unexpectedly stress-free?

-Was Verity Homes always open and honest with you during the building process?

-Did we stay within budget? Did we hit our closing date?

Our story

Verity Homes started with a simple realization. Arthur (Art) Goldammer, our company’s founder and CEO, found himself at the University of Mary in the middle of his fifth year of business school when inspiration struck… “I just couldn’t imagine spending the rest of my life sitting in a maze of cubicles in some high-rise in downtown Minneapolis.” One of Art’s ore beliefs is that there is no such thing as “good enough,” and to him cubicle life didn’t even meet that criteria. It was unimaginative and lacked the challenge he craved. So Art took stock of his life experience, which included a childhood highlighted by a love of construction and summers spent swinging hammers, and he set out to forge his own path in life… and Verity Homes was born.

A Boutique Home Building Experience

“We give our buyers the fun, unhurried, personal experience that you typically only find with builders that will only work with clients looking to build their second or third home vs. the new home buyer,” Art explained. Builders our size tend to rely on a rigid copy-and-paste type process, where they give customers a list of options and a set allowance, then turn them loose to go “build their dream house.” but once you get into the build process, you realize how complex it is. We know our customers aren’t the experts… we are.” Art said, “So we developed a much more personal process here at Verity that frees us up to spend as much time as needed with each individual client. We don’t rush anything. Instead, we let our customers guide us and allow time for contemplation… and for fun!”

We’re proud of the process we’ve developed over the years at Verity Homes… a boutique home building experience that places the customer at the center of everything.

Looking to the Future

“We have tremendous power as homebuilders, and we can give a lot back to our community while setting a good example for other community leaders,” Art said. This is the not-so-secret mission of Verity Homes. Not only do we pride ourselves on building homes people love to live in, homes that build equity and make memories for future generations, we also place a tremendous amount of value in giving back to the communities we serve. As we expand into new communities and introduce new floor plans that capitalize on the latest design trends and eco-friendly practices, we will also expand our community building efforts. The Verity Homes brand has already earned a reputation for quality, affordability and a process that is truly fun and exciting for our customers…now we’re setting our sites on earning your trust as a compassionate community leader.
