Prestige Homes

I have represented my husband, Steve Hanel, as a sales agent for our home building business, Prestige Homes.

Here is some information about Steve. You can learn more about Prestige Homes at www.prestigehomesomaha.com.

Steve Hanel, owner of Prestige Homes Inc., is an experienced builder with a flair for home design. His unique talent for custom building, combined with an unparalleled eye for detail, makes him a respected builder in the Omaha real estate market. Prestige Homes Inc. is a company built on years of experience, integrity, and professionalism.

          Steve began his career in 1986 after graduating from Midland Lutheran College with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration. His first job out of college was with Peter Kiewit and Sons, which required his relocation to Atlanta, Georgia. His passion had always been to build residential homes, so he soon found a position with one of the top builders in the Atlanta area. He quickly rose to a management position within the company, and gained valuable experience in all areas of the home building industry. Steve enjoyed his eight years with that company, but he knew he wanted to realize an even bigger dream: owning his own company. Steve wanted to build quality, custom homes for people at a reasonable price. He had a vision for his company; Steve knew that building a home was a dream for many people. He wanted to provide individualized service and give his customers a stress-free building experience.

          Steve built several homes in the Atlanta, Georgia area while working for himself. He loved his experiences in building homes independently, but he missed his friends, family, and the Midwestern values for which Omaha is known. Steve accepted a top management position for a top local builder and he and his family moved back to Omaha. Steve began to build his relationships with trade contractors and suppliers in the Omaha area, with aspirations to one again begin his own company.

          Steve started Prestige Homes Inc. in 2002. Since then, he has built many custom homes for many satisfied customers. He was also a participant in the 2011 Street of Dreams. Steve has realized his dream of building quality, custom homes at a reasonable price. He takes great pride in his workmanship, attention to detail, and quality products and designs that he is able to offer his clients. Prestige Homes is truly a dream come true!

Personal Interests

I love to spend my free time with my friends and family. We are an active family, and we spend our free time biking, playing sports, or attending various family activities with our kids. We love to travel and explore new places. Finally, when I do have a rare, quiet afternoon, I love to curl up in my chair with a good book!
