2023 in Review: A 40-Year Legacy

As we bid farewell to 2023, it’s time to reflect on the moments that defined Signature Homes’ 40th year of dream craftsmanship. From grand openings to giving back to our local communities, the Signature Homes team had an incredible year making new memories with our homeowners, vendors, friends, and family.


Celebrating 40 Years

Among all of Signature Homes’ accomplishments this year, our 40th anniversary is particularly noteworthy. Founded by Jim Ghielmetti in 1983, Signature Homes has consistently exemplified excellence in the home building industry for over four decades.  Defined by superior quality, versatile design, and uncompromising value, Signature Homes’ journey isn’t just about building homes, it’s about a deep desire to connect with our local communities. Our sincere gratitude goes out to the entire Signature Homes family.

Legacy at Folsom Ranch Sells Out

In the earlier part of this year, Legacy at Folsom Ranch reached full occupancy! Tucked away near the rolling Sierra foothills, preserved heritage oak woodlands, and an abundance of desirable amenities, this welcoming community warmly embraced 68 new families to the neighborhood. The charm of this community lies not only in its scenic surroundings but also in the vibrant lifestyle it offers to those fortunate enough to call the Signature Homes community of Legacy their home.

6th Annual BIA Bay Area Women’s Leadership Conference

This year marked the 6th Annual BIA Bay Area Women’s Leadership Conference. The Signature Homes team had a blast hearing from incredible speakers – Regina Lawless, Demi Clark, and Mary Huss. This exceptional event was incredibly inspiring and empowering. Signature Homes’ very own VP of Sales and Marketing, Juliann Cretsinger, took on the role of event emcee and is serving her sixth year on the conference Steering Committee. We can’t wait for next year’s conference!

Giving Back

Signature Homes is deeply grateful for the support we’ve received from local communities that have embraced us, and we are committed to continuously seeking opportunities to give back.


Backpack & School Supply Drive

Prior to this year’s school start, Signature Homes partnered with BIA Bay Area Young Professionals to collect supplies for local school districts. It’s truly remarkable how a child’s sense of empowerment can soar when equipped with not only the essentials but with supplies they love!


Sun Valley Elementary

Back in October, Signature Homes visited Ms. Peters’ TK class at Sun Valley Elementary. The class had been learning about construction and they were so eager to learn more home building. Each student received their very own copy of “The House That She Built” by Mollie Elkman, along with a hard hat, safety vest, and a Signature Homes backpack! The enthusiasm radiating from Ms. Peters’ class left the Signature Homes team feeling deeply touched, and we sincerely hope that our visit has inspired these young students.

STAND! For Families Free of Violence

Before Thanksgiving, Signature Homes had the pleasure of volunteering with STAND! For Families Free of Violence, a local nonprofit committed to breaking the cycle of domestic violence. Through comprehensive prevention, intervention, and treatment, STAND! pursues their mission of eradicating family violence. Not only did our team have the opportunity to learn more about their services, but we revitalized a workspace with a fresh coat of paint, providing STAND! with even more space to continue their incredible work. Visit https://www.standffov.org/ to get involved or learn how to access services.
