Our Story

As Co-founder, CFO and Designated Broker of regional start-up builder Joseph Carl Homes, Stephen Adams fostered homebuilding and the dream of homeownership during the recent recession. From 2 to 26 employees, he created jobs in Arizona and Nevada. From $0 to $70 million, he raised capital, added value, and sold his ownership interest to a public homebuilder. From 0 to 45 units closed, he made proud new homeowners and brokered over $11 million in real estate transactions. 

Now veteran Arizona Homebuilder Stephen Adams has assembled a dream team of developers, designers, contractors, trade partners, finance partners and other real estate professionals to offer his SUPERIOR ENERGY SYSTEM! Adams Craig continues to push the integration limits between technology and smart building. Welcome to the future of homebuilding! The green footprint logo is a constant reminder of where the company is going and what the company will leave behind: beautiful real estate; happy homeowners; recycling and conservation; a better planet. 

Stephen lives in Arizona and holds a MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. He received his Bachelor of Science from Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Our Mission


Our mission is to add value. We pride ourselves on long-term vision and sustainability. Before money is invested in a residential project, three questions are asked. Will the investment make the world a better place? Will the investment improve the life of the eventual buyer? And will the investment minimize waste and maximize returns? If the answer to all three questions is “yes,” a sustainable, value, investment opportunity exists.

Sustainable.Value.Investments., or SVI, is as important and potent as other three letter investment terms like IRR and ROI. The SVI goes beyond returns and into true economic value. Not only must new value be created, but the value must add enduring economic benefit to society at large.

Through sustainable building solutions, Adams Craig combines modern technology with the age-old American dream of home ownership. We are committed to building homes like we plan to be on this planet for a long time to come. For us, energy efficient homes are not a goal, they are a necessity.


Green Home Builders Possess Endless Opportunity for Creating Value

As with any investment, timing is important. Green home building was less than twenty percent of the residential market a couple years ago. In just three years, that is expected to climb to forty percent. We are fast approaching an era where our forward thinking will be the norm. Properties that do not take the realities of the average home’s impact on the earth into account will be seen as less desirable, less responsible constructions when compared to homes from green home builders.

The SVI concept of Adams Craig embodies the green home building mega movement. When “the right thing to do” meets diligence, capital, and technology, the possibilities for smart community growth and development are endless.
