One look at our homes, and you’ll see why Smykal has been building the American Dream since 1871 – quality and customer service never go out of style.
In the aftermath of the Great Chicago Fire, we started building sturdy, well-built homes for the hardworking families that lifted Chicago from the ashes to become one of the world’s great cities. Many others ventured into the home-building business; few have survived as long. What’s our secret?
More than anything else, we understand your desire to purchase a well built home at an affordable price that you can be proud to call your own. We also know each home should reflect a buyer’s lifestyle, which is why we have an in-house architect available to help personalize your design.
Since our founding, we’ve built more than 17,000 homes and apartments in Chicago and its suburbs. While our commitment to quality construction remains as strong as ever, today’s Smykal home reflects the modern American Dream: efficient floor plans, craftsmanship, plenty of storage, gourmet kitchens and state-of-the-art sustainable materials.
For more than 130 years we’ve watched builders come and go, but Smykal has prospered by doing business according to the same values for which we were founded: pride in a job well done and a commitment to customer service. That’s how we got where we are now: ready, willing, and able to help your family build its dream home-a home built to last and made for memories.
