About Us

What sets Homes by Christopher apart from many of its competitors? Chris Railey’s 20 plus years of experience and his eye for detail.

 After 15 years with Duke Energy, as a draftsman, Chris embarked on an adventure, putting his skills in design and construction to use, building custom homes. 

“Growing up in Rock Hill, SC, I was always involved with my family, building, remodeling and repairing houses, cars, equipment, whatever was needed. My earliest memory of performing some type of construction was, at 7 years old, helping my Father and Grandfather wire, plumb, and finish our new home. There weren’t many tasks that my family couldn’t perform so I learned many skills at an early age.”

 Building custom homes quickly became Chris’ passion which lead to many years of happy home owners and beautiful new homes around the York County area of South Carolina. Though the economic downturn of the housing market took its toll on home builders everywhere, Chris found himself in the world of remodeling homes, kitchens, baths, and many other projects. 

 “Those were the hardest times of my career and I learned many lessons in the process. My family and I plowed ahead with the Lord’s direction where I found an opportunity to continue building homes.”

 Today, Homes by Christopher is a product of many years of hard work, valuable life lessons, and a blessing from our Lord Jesus Christ.

 “Allow us to bring your dream home to life, quality built with integrity!”
