Meet Our Builder

Steve Hanel, owner of Prestige Homes Inc., is an experienced builder with a flair for home design. His unique talent for custom building, combined with an unparalleled eye for detail, makes him a respected builder in the Omaha real estate market. Prestige Homes Inc. is a company built on years of experience, integrity, and professionalism.

Steve began his career in 1986 after graduating from Midland Lutheran College with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration. His first job out of college was with Peter Kiewit and Sons, which required his relocation to Atlanta, Georgia. His passion had always been to build residential homes, so he soon found a position with one of the top builders in the Atlanta area. He quickly rose to a management position within the company, and gained valuable experience in all areas of the home building industry. Steve had an even bigger dream: to build quality, custom homes for people at a reasonable price, provide individualized service, and give his customers a stress-free building experience.

Steve started Prestige Homes Inc. in 2002. Since then, he has built many custom homes for many satisfied customers. He was also a participant in the 2011 Street of Dreams. Steve takes great pride in his workmanship, attention to detail, and quality products and designs that he is able to offer his clients.
