Zarrilli Homes: Local Modular Homebuilder Offers Quality at the Jersey Shore

Zarrilli Homes provides several options in Monmouth and Ocean Counties

Asbury Park Press / Sunday July 5, 2015;  BRICK, NJ ­– Those looking for a highly customizable, cost effective, and quick way to build their dream home need look no further than Zarrilli Homes, the premier builder of modular homes at the Jersey Shore. The team at Zarrilli has decades of experience planning and constructing quality built homes in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

“Over a hundred people are involved in constructing our custom modular homes, each of whom is vitally important,” said Anthony Zarrilli, owner and president of Zarrilli Homes, “Our unrivalled attention to detail and personal dedication to each of our client’s satisfaction is what sets us apart from other area homebuilders.”

Recipient of the Award for Excellence in Customer Service from Pulse of the City, Zarrilli Homes places importance on open communication by working closely with each family before, during, and well after their home is constructed. For prospective homebuyers, Zarrilli frequently hosts tours of the Excel Modular Homes factory, preferred modular home manufacturer of Zarrilli Homes. There, attendees see for themselves the exact process that takes place when a modular home is created.

“In the factory, you could see each stage of development. It completely convinced me this was the way I wanted to go,” said Pat O’Shea of Lavallette, who recently attended a factory tour while weighing options for rebuilding after her home was flooded during Hurricane Sandy. Like anyone who attends an Excel Factory Tour with Zarrilli, O’Shea received a $1,000 credit towards her future home.

Precise methods and no exposure to the elements mean most modular homes can be built in the factory within a week. While modular homes have long struggled with a reputation for an unrefined look and feel, Zarrilli homes have far exceeded modular homes of the past.  In Zarrilli homes, airy and open home designs and standard high end features, including hardwood, granite, tile bathrooms, 9’ ceilings, Kohler faucets, Seagull lighting, and tank-less hot water heaters provide luxury and style for discerning homeowners.

On-site, the Zarrilli team sets the homes on their foundation and homeowners can enjoy a walkthrough within a few hours.  This experience was nothing short of warm and welcoming for Margaret Cotton, Zarrilli homebuyer who recently had her entire family accompany her on a walkthrough of their new home.

“With so many people, the walkthrough required patience, but everyone felt welcomed. That’s the way the house becomes a home,” Cotton said. “We loved watching the team work so brilliantly together. Everyone just did their job.  There were so many happy surprises. The details looked wonderful. We are so over the top happy.”

The Zarrilli team works to ensure that level of customer satisfaction remains during the entire finish, well after move-in day.  One-year inspections and tune-ups ensure that houses maintain their quality and craftsmanship.

“After the first year, there were a few issues caused by the natural setting of my house. All were identified and addressed,” said Jim Hofacker, recent Zarrilli homebuyer. “My house looks better than the day I moved in! My family has enjoyed the home a great deal and are looking forward to another summer season.”

Zarrilli is committed to being a viable option for any homeowner. While the average size of a Zarrilli home this year was 1,300- to 2,450 square feet, in the past they’ve worked on houses as small as 800 square feet and as large as 10,000 square feet.

The Shore Collection, a selection of 16 popular designs from Zarrilli, is built with the Jersey Shore in mind.  The Collection allows homeowners to choose from coastal cottage designs that range from 800 to 2,692 square feet for an even quicker building process. These homes come standard with certain luxury features for maximum convenience and promptness. If prospective homeowners decide they would like to alter the designs or architectural plans of the Shore Collection, the home would then fall into the custom modular category, which is still the core focus at Zarrilli Homes.

The homebuilder also currently offers a complimentary “Get Wired!” package with every new home. This special offer includes a 50” Smart TV, wireless router, and free cable and Wi-Fi for one year.
