About Providence Homes

Providence-AboutWhen Bill Cellar first became a builder in Northeast Florida, he did so with a personal pledge to make a difference in the industry. He created Providence Homes with a commitment to building beautifully designed homes at affordable prices, and to building every home with the same attention to detail and reliability he would with his own home.

Today, as Founder & CEO of Providence Homes, Bill continues to build upon the philosophy that homeowners deserve the best he can give. As Bill says, "The combination of our product, pricing, location and team equate to a tremendous value for our customers. We treat our customers, trade partners, and Realtors® the way we would like to be treated. We approach every day that way. If you strive for that goal, you will earn a reputation for quality that will be recognized and honored."

At the end of the day, Bill Cellar's fundamental commitment to building each home as if he were building his own – to "Doing the right thing" – has set Providence apart.
