JWB, Inc.

Brunswick/New Hanover County Luxury Custom Home Builder

Since 1996, JWB, Inc. has been building high quality, energy efficient, luxury custom homes in the southeast North Carolina area. JWB, Inc., with owners Jeff and Debbie Bartholomew involved in all aspects of construction, has a well-earned reputation for delivering luxury custom homes in a relaxed and comfortable building experience.

In 2014 JWB, Inc. became an independently owned franchise of Arthur Rutenberg Homes.  JWB, Inc.’s name and reputation are built on integrity, craftsmanship, and customer satisfaction – this foundation blends perfectly with the legendary Arthur Rutenberg’s four cornerstones of building: Design, Craftsmanship, Service, and Responsibility. JWB, Inc. brings Jeff’s background in engineering and construction management and Debbie’s background in management and customer relations together to build exceptional homes and provide a world class experience to their clients.

JWB, Inc. works closely with their construction team – the subcontractors, suppliers, trade partners, and community associations – to craft homes that are elegant while maintaining functionality. They take both professional and personal pride working with you to make the dream of your new home become real.

JWB, Inc. builds Arthur Rutenberg Homes in Brunswick and New Hanover counties including the greater Wilmington, Southport, Oak Island, Shallotte, and Holden Beach areas on both customer owned property and in upscale communities.  With over 120 floor plans, and a full time architectural staff, they can customize one from their portfolio, work with owner’s plans, or design a completely new home for you.  Their plans and designers are the best in the industry – take a look and see for yourself!
