About Suncrest Homes

Suncrest Homes was founded by Navy Veteran, J. Michael Ruefle, Jr. in 1987 and headquartered in Murrysville, PA. Suncrest Homes has become one of the most prestigious new home construction companies in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh. They also remodel homes and develop attached and detached single-family new home communities.

Working with development partners, Suncrest Homes creates lifestyle communities that are truly neighborhoods. These communities typically have amenities like pools, clubhouses, walking trails, lakes, tot lots, playfields, and putting greens. Our neighborhoods are designed to meet the life-quality needs of people in all life stages.

Some neighborhoods we have created are Forest Ridge Manor in Murrysville; The Village of Sarver’s Mills in Sarver; Berkeley Square in Monroeville; Buffalo Trails in Buffalo Township; Saunders Farm Estates and Sterling Oaks in Penn Township; and Allegheny Woodlands in Allegheny Township.

Suncrest Homes is family-owned and operated by the father-daughter team of president J. Michael Ruefle and vice-president Colleen Ruefle-Haley, aided by their experienced team of construction experts and craftsmen.

The entire team at Suncrest Homes shares a common belief that their clients are best served when the client, builder, and the experienced craftsman work together to ensure a thoroughly-designed, quality-built home (or home remodel). The entire team combines their talents, skill, expertise, and efforts to make the building or remodeling process enjoyable.

Michael and Colleen have worked hard to both build a respected company and to contribute to improvements in the building industry. For a complete listing of awards that Suncrest Homes has won and its professional associations, visit the Awards section.
