Steve Helms, President
Steve graduated from West Stanly High School in 1978 after completing various woodworking and carpentry classes that were offered in high school.
In 1978, Steve competed in VICA (Vocational Industrial Clubs of America) Carpentry Contest, finishing first place in the district contest. He then went on to the state contest in Asheville, NC and finished first place, sending him to the national level contest where he finished in the top ten.
Steve’s construction career began in 1978 with George A. Little Construction Company in Albemarle, NC. In 1983, Steve started Helms Builders, specializing in framing and interior and exterior trim. Since then, the company has grown to provide complete residential and commercial building services.
Jarrad Helms, Vice President
Jarrad grew up helping Steve on the jobsites throughout Charlotte where his passion for building began. After he graduated from West Stanly High School in 2006, he went full-time with Helms Builders where he gained his knowledge of the building process from the ground up. He was lucky in the early years to be hands-on in the build projects, running crews doing framing, siding, tile, trim-work and erecting metal buildings. He now focuses more on the project management side of the business.
Lisa Helms, Office Administrator
After being a stay-at-home mom, Lisa decided to go back into the workforce in 2009 and opened her own hair salon. She worked there until things in the building industry began to grow and in July, 2018, she decided it was time to help her husband out in the office. Since then, she takes care of the accounting and records and now also meets with customers and vendors with selections for new custom homes.
