Ariel J. Quintela
Founder & President, Ariel Homes, Inc.

Ariel and his team recognize that you are investing much more than money in your new home, you are investing your trust, and your hopes and dreams for the future.

In 1990, Ariel J. Quintela launched his own homebuilding company with one person in mind: You, the homebuyer.

Although he’d been in the business for years, it hadn’t taken long for Ariel to recognize that there was a better way to go about it, an approach that went beyond industry standards in quality of design, construction, and especially customer care.

That’s why, his motto has always been…

Building Beautiful Quality Homes and Long-Term Relationships

Simply put, Ariel is the kind of builder that homebuyers and realtors recommend to friends and family, at a rate of referral that has helped Ariel Homes become one of the most respected and fastest growing builders of new homes and communities throughout Tampa Bay.

A devoted husband, father, and active member of his community, Ariel is noted for investing in the greater good of his local hometown of Odessa, as well as the Greater Tampa Bay area. He has served on many boards, including the Sheriff’s Hispanic Advisory Council, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and other boards throughout Hillsborough County.

“We are very happy with our new home. The whole process was handled very professionally, from our first meeting to the closing. We appreciated the meetings with you and your construction manager throughout the various stages of construction. The quality of workmanship is evident by the attention to detail that was taken in every construction phase. We are very satisfied with our home, and would highly recommend Ariel Homes to anyone considering new home construction.”


“Throughout the course of the construction project, my home was built by professionals who cared and understood my needs and requests. Whenever I needed to consult with them, they were always only a phone call away. As a result of an excellent and professional home building experience with Ariel Homes, I consider Ariel and his team trusted friends and it is therefore my pleasure to recommend Ariel Homes to anyone.”


“When we decided to build a custom home, we met with various builders and determined that Ariel Homes was the most welcoming, knowledgeable, flexible, and honest. After working with Ariel for several months and seeing the progress that has been made, I’m glad to report that our initial impression was correct. His team of builders is superb. They regularly communicate job developments and ensure our input is considered as needed.”
