Building family memories since 1994

About Us


Piccard Homes was created by Mike and Carrie Accardi in 1994 under the guidance of Carrie’s father, Richard Ward, who founded the successful real estate business Ward Companies in the late 1960’s. We grew the business for five years before growing our family. We now have three children and as they grow so does the understanding that a home is more than a house; it is a place for living your life. We feel honored to be part of the structure and background for the special memories you will create in your home. The legacy of providing quality homes has expanded to a desire to build a beautiful home for you… from the heart of our family to yours.

Piccard Homes takes pride in building superior residential and commercial communities. Family is the core of our business, which shows in all we do.

The Piccard home you and your team built for us continues to get rave reviews from all that visit our home. Everyone is amazed by the level of detail and quality of workmanship that you put into make our dream house a reality.

—Jim Burke and Lou Fiore


The quality and prestige of a Piccard built home immediately stands out not only the moment you enter our gated community but also when you walk through the doors of so many homes here, including ours which we absolutely LOVE! The neighborhood is beautiful and has such a peaceful and relaxing feel.

—Jim Hollar & Harvey Cornwell


The best compliments we can give are that everyone has consistently delivered service excellence before, during and after our purchase. It is clear that everyone at Piccard honors their commitments.

—Kathy Maher & Chris Castleberry


The quality of the house itself hardly needs mentioning; I would say only that it has exceeded our high expectations. And the peaceful surroundings and our friendly neighbors make it seem very much like home to us now.

—Mark and Kiko Goldstein


We thought Sawgrass might be out of our price range but the number of upgrades and amenities far surpassed all the competition. We had done a lot of looking but nothing compared to what we feel we got for the price of our home. From the granite countertops, to the crown molding, the place is impeccable! The pool and fitness center were also important to us and we like that the community was gated.

—Ralph Cincinnati


We totally enjoy everything the home has to offer, including the layout of the home (with plenty of deck area), the area of Rehoboth Beach, the pool/exercise room and the friendly Delaware folks. We also greatly appreciate how smooth the sale negotiation, the walk-throughs and the final closing were completed.

—Terry and Mary Tielking


The building was a smooth process and our request and concerns were handled professionally and with courtesy. Even during construction the property was always kept clean! Our home is gorgeous and we love the attention to details.

—The Swarbrick, Powell and Doody Families
