About Westrum Development Company

A company built on strong foundations of family tradition, hard work and dedication, Westrum Development Company has excelled in the homebuilding and real estate industry for over 26 years and is recognized today as one of the leading homebuilders and developers in the mid-Atlantic region. The company’s schematic was developed in 1986 by CEO, Chairman and 2nd Generation Homebuilder, John A. Westrum, in his college dorm room at Bucknell University. Between 1987 and 2012 the continuous innovation and fortitude of John Westrum has resulted in over 2,500 homes built and occupied, countless industry awards, numerous corporate acquisitions, and excellent investor and lender relationships.

What began as a small, single family homebuilder, Westrum Development Company quickly grew into a talented team of real estate experts concentrated on development and expansion in local, regional and national markets.
