Abele Builders was started in 1984 by Chris Abele. Prior to beginning Abele Builders, he worked in landscape contracting and site development. Abele Builders grew into a moderately sized local builder in the Albany area with both a residential and commercial division. With our diverse portfolio, we have positioned ourselves as a major land developer in Saratoga County. We have over 65 tenants and have built well over 300 homes.
Our mission is to provide a wonderful product and stand behind it. Furthermore, to create value for our customers.

Abele in the Community
Abele is proud to be a part of the many organizations that make the Capital Region a great place to work, play and call home. In 2015, we were happy to sponsor a team in the American Diabetes Association’s Tour De Cure bike race. Together with our team, we raised over $10,000 for the cause.
As a recent new home buyer, I recommend Abele Builders for their quality workmanship and attractive development planning with home designs that include homes for the down-sizer. I experienced excellent co-operation from the Abele team who provided helpful Realty personnel and design center assistance making the whole process of my relocation a pleasant experience.
Tom and Sue Rogan
Tom and I would like to recommend the Abele builders who constructed our beautiful home in Sheldon Hills. As first time home builders, we found it challenging to navigate all the decisions that were necessary. The Abele team of Ed, Chris, Phyllis, Sue and the entire staff quickly put our minds at ease in this process. Every step of the way, they were very helpful and understanding of our needs. From the choice of the lot to every detail of the construction we were very satisfied with their attention to detail. After three years in the home, we are very happy with the construction of our home and feel that Abele builders did a wonderful job. We would highly recommend them.
Anthony and Michelle Giunta
If you plan on buying a home and building it, I highly recommend Abele Builders. My wife and I had searched all over the Clifton Park/Halfmoon/Saratoga region for our next home and after all was said and done, there is no one better. I encourage you to shop around and see what’s out there–and you will end up with Abele Builders. Right from the first day we visited the model home in Glen Meadows, we were treated like family. I know that may sound a little unrealistic but it is the truth. There was no pressure and they answered all our questions quickly and honestly. The entire staff from Chris, Phyllis, Sue, Dee, Dan and Dave all made the entire process as easy as can be. You will complete the entire process of building your home right in their office. You aren’t sent out to other companies to make any selections – all of your flooring, granite, tile and siding selections are done in their Design Center and they include an abundance of standard features. The quality of craftsmanship and work is fantastic. The people that work for Abele Builders (contractors) are polite, friendly and always willing to assist if needed. So if you’re in the market for new construction and want an exceptional builder, please give Abele Builders a chance.
I’m extremely happy with my home built by Abele Builders in the maintenance free community of Glen Meadows. It came to a point in my life where I wanted to downsize to an easy care house, but still desired to live in an independent home. The home has exceeded my expectations. I spent many months researching various builders within our county. It was important to find a quality built home with a design that fit my needs. I needed a community in a country setting, but very convenient to major roads and services. I got all that and more with my choice of Glen Meadows. The location is perfect and the building materials and workmanship are excellent. From beginning to end the Abele staff made the building process easy. I’ve built two other homes and have had to travel to many vendors to make my choices. The Abele Builders Design Center provided quality choices all at one location. The entire team was always efficient and responsive to my questions and concerns. Besides the ease of interior maintenance, the bonus of a well-insulated house has resulted in low utility costs that are much appreciated.
I hope my positive experience will encourage you to join the Abele built community.
