The Kettler Forlines Story
Over 40 years ago, Clarence Kettler and Clifford Forlines founded Kettler Forlines Homes with a singular vision—to elevate the standard for homebuilding. From the design of the homes to the development of lasting communities, Kettler Forlines had a vision of not just houses, but a lifestyle.
Today, more than 4,000 homes and 100 neighborhoods later, the tradition continues. Each home reflects our uncompromising commitment to quality—materials, design, craftsmanship, and service.
The Kettler Forlines name is an integral part of many of the finest communities in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Along with building these homes, we’ve built our own community: a family of dedicated, innovative professionals who average 20 years of service each—a depth of experience that few of our competitors can equal. Our homeowners know they can depend upon complete customer service, from their first contact with our sales representative, through the homebuilding phase, and beyond.
Our Community Commitment
As a local, family-owned homebuilding business with deep roots in the Washington, DC, area, Kettler Forlines Homes maintains a long-standing family tradition of support for many local charitable and non-profit organizations, including Children's National Medical Center, Habitat for Humanity, Homebuilders Care Foundation, Rebuilding Together (formerly Christmas in April), The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, American Red Cross, Montgomery College, and Heritage Montgomery. We are proud of our many employees who volunteer to help Little League teams, high school youth groups, local Chambers of Commerce, and serve on the boards of hospitals and homeowners associations. At Kettler Forlines Homes, we don’t just build communities. We become part of them.
As a family business, Kettler Forlines Homes appreciates that a new home is more than a project. It’s someone’s future. We design and build our homes with this vision.
