New Home in Brookland, Washington DC

About Us

Company History

Madison Homes was started in 1992 in McLean, Virginia by Russell Rosenberger and Milton Schneiderman – two veterans of the homebuilding industry. Within a few years, the company had narrowed its focus to in-fill projects in the closer-in areas of Washington, DC. Our focus on building the highest quality homes in the best locations has only intensified since that time and our expertise is unmatched. The homes we build for every community are each unique but we are always guided by the same principles – to design to the highest quality and to complement and fit in with the fabric of the existing neighborhood. Please visit our Legacy Communities learn more about some of the nearly 2,000 homes we’ve delivered.

buying land

The starting point for all of Madison’s communities is the acquisition of available land in well located, established urban areas. Many of these opportunities have involved the assemblage of a number of smaller parcels under diverse ownership and/or the redevelopment of already improved land. Madison’s expertise and experience in bringing together differing interests to create a cohesive development proposal is a hallmark of our success.

land entitlement

The entitlement of land, particularly in dense urban areas, is an extremely complex, expensive and time-consuming process. Madison assembles and manages teams of the top consultants necessary to successfully navigate this process and has developed strong working relationships with government officials in many of the local jurisdictions.

Our track record of unique and well-designed communities is a testament to the focus and energy we devote to the design of each project and to the relationships that we are able to foster with civic associations, community groups, and government agencies. This track record has been a critical element when property owners have chosen Madison Homes to redevelop their property. These groups include the American Red Cross, Anne Arundel Health System, the City of Fairfax, the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, and other religious and non-profit groups.
