MasterCraft Builder Group reached a huge milestone with the closing of our 500th home. This closing came on the same day as our actual 10th anniversary and we couldn’t have asked for a better celebration of our company’s accomplishments over the years.
While many national home builders may build up to 500 homes within a single year, we focus on quality over quantity. Our progress is a testament to our company’s mission to continue providing our homebuyers with only the best when it comes to our Four C’s; Choice, Craftsmanship, Customer Service, and Community. This exciting benchmark is just the beginning of our journey.
Meet the 500th Homebuyer
Located in the up-and-coming master-planned community of SilverLeaf, our 500th home went to a community member, Gary Burns. Gary purchased the Lilly model in the Farmhouse elevation. With two extra bedrooms, this family home is perfect for hosting his grandkids on the weekends and it provides plenty of room for his friendly pups to lounge and play.
When asked why he decided to build with MasterCraft, Gary said, “This home allows me to be close to my family. My daughter and her kids live only five blocks away! I love the neighborhood amenities. I’ve already made great use of the pool and dog parks. My favorite part of the home would have to be the level of comfort it provides. The kitchen space is large and inviting, and the oversized design of rooms like the pantry, laundry room, and bathrooms are all features that I’ve never gotten to enjoy in previous homes.”
After settling into his new home, Gary is looking forward to spending the summer days at the pool with his grandkids, walking his dogs on the various walking paths, and exploring the community on his new golf cart. “Gary is going to be a great addition to the community,” said MasterCraft President Brad Shee. “This home couldn’t have gone to someone more deserving.”
Located in in the heart of St. Johns County, SilverLeaf is a new master-planned community providing homeowners with a family-friendly, amenity-rich, new home neighborhood to enjoy. Situated on more than 8,500 acres of natural Old Florida land, SilverLeaf delivers a sense of serenity and privacy, which invites residents to connect with nature.
MasterCraft currently offers three floorplans within SilverLeaf including the Lilly, Loralie, and Aiden ranging between 1,400 and 2,000 square feet.
The community also boasts various resort-style amenities, including miles of bicycle and walking paths, community pools, splash park, recreation fields, dog parks, tennis and pickleball courts, as well as many neighborhood parks and playgrounds so you can love where you live, work and play.
“Having our 500th home located within the community of SilverLeaf has a sense of longevity to it,” explains Shee. “As a local builder, contributing to a neighborhood with over 11,000 lots is a huge honor. We plan on growing alongside the community, and our long-term goal is to be one of the first builders in and the last builder out. When you think of SilverLeaf, we want you to think of MasterCraft.”

The Future of MasterCraft
MasterCraft strives to be known as a leader within the industry. Our homes are built with only the highest quality tools, expert craftsmanship, and upgraded home features that you won’t find with standard homebuilders. With the growth that our company has experienced over the last 10-years, our goal is to continue providing only the best to our homebuyers in terms of livability and design. We will continue to implement innovative techniques, develop new floorplans, and always be on the cutting edge of craftsmanship.
“This milestone did not come easy,” said Shee. “Who we are today is the result of tremendous effort, dedication, and hard work.”
Over the years, the most significant change for our company has been the tremendous growth we’ve experienced. What once began as a small company founded by three friends has now developed into an extraordinary team of over 30 members working to provide only the best for our community and its residents.
Our dedication to providing a hands-on approach and day-to-day management for our customers has allowed us to deliver the quality construction that our buyers have grown to expect and deserve. As we look toward the future, we will continue to grow at a rate that allows us to remain consistent with our vision. “It’s truly humbling that 500 people have allowed us to enter into their lives and make a difference,” said Shee. “At the end of the day, we have provided our buyers with not only a house but a home. And that is everything.”
