About Dominion Custom Homes

John Kerber built Dominion Custom Homes on two key principles: Provide the personal attention that can’t be duplicated by larger builders, and build each home with the integrity and stewardship that a family deserves. This one-on-one contact with our homeowners establishes a strong relationship and a sense of trust right from the start. At Dominion Custom Homes, we believe building a home should be a positive experience from day one. We can deliver on this because John Kerber and our team listen to your needs, ask questions about your requirements, analyze how your family lives now and will live in the future. 

At Dominion Custom Homes, we pride ourselves on having a team of extremely talented craftsmen, field supervisors, interior decorators, and trade partners, who work together to ensure each home is meticulously constructed, within budget and delivered on time. John remains closely involved with his team throughout each phase of the building process. This process guarantees a successful relationship between homeowner and builder, and ensures a beautifully constructed custom home that meets or exceeds each homeowner’s expectations.


John Kerber has over 25 years of custom home building and construction management experience. He also has a passion for knowledge that has stretched from his time at Michigan State University, where he earned Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Construction Management, throughout his career.
