Sandy Spring Builders

Sandy Spring Builders CEO Phil Leibovitz says the company is entrenched “smack in the middle of Bethesda—our offices, the houses we build and the houses we live in.” That commitment to the community may be why Bethesda Magazine readers have voted this company the area’s best builder in 2008, 2010 and now 2013.

“You can’t drive through Bethesda without coming across a Sandy Spring Builders project,” Leibovitz says. “I live next to a home we built, I live across the street from a home we built and when I walk to downtown, I pass at least eight houses we built.”

Founded in 1982, Sandy Spring Builders specializes in custom homes, and its renovations division handles projects of all sizes. The company also is certified by the National Association of Home Builders’ National Green Building Program.
