Chuck Spinelli

President and Founder

I started Spinell Homes almost 30 years ago with the goal of providing Alaskans with safe, high-quality, personalized homes and today my mission remains the same. My wife Jackie and I have called Alaska home since 1984. We raised our three kids here, which fuel my passion to help Alaskans find the perfect home for their family. Whether it’s first-time homebuyers or people looking to build their perfect home from the ground up, I’m proud to have been a part of building more than 3,200 homes. I’m committed to giving customers the highest quality home and customer service, and I know we’ve done the job when people say they’re proud to own a Spinell Home.

Spinell Homes isn’t just like family to me - two of my three children joined the family business, making nine generations of Spinellis in the construction industry. I’m proud to watch my children carry on the company’s legacy of top-notch customer care, innovative design and family values. I’ve also enjoyed watching many of Spinell Homes’ employees grow up at this company. I care deeply about my community, Jackie and I volunteer and support many community organizations. From building better homes to building up our community, I believe in making Alaska a safe and healthy home for Alaskan families.

Andre Spinelli

Vice President of Design and Development

My after-school job as a high school student was at Spinell Homes, where I would do odd jobs around construction sites helping crews. The experience gave me a hands-on opportunity to learn every aspect of building. I left Alaska to attend college and for a brief time pursued a career in professional snowboarding but Alaska was always my home. I returned to Spinell Homes in 2000 to pursue my passion of designing homes.

I am also the current president of the Alaska State Home Building Association. Anchorage homebuyers face a number of challenges including harsh weather, high-energy costs and limited space. My goal is to have Spinell Homes solve these problems for Alaska homebuyers by finding creative ways to continue new construction projects and to build every home with high standards of energy efficiency.

I take pride in the home I’ve built for my family and I want to provide other Alaskans with opportunities for safe housing that fits their budget.
