A long-standing commitment to value and innovation.

As a sixth-generation southwest Missourian, Ryan Cantrell inherently understands and shares the values of people in the Springfield area. As a third-generation homebuilder, he also knows what they desire in a new home.  

Since 2002, Ryan Cantrell has been building homes that meet the needs and exceed the expectations of homebuyers in the southwest Missouri area, including Springfield, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, Rogersville, Strafford, Joplin, Reeds Spring, and Willard.

Always seeking new ways to delight the customer, Ryan has combined nearly two decades of experience with the latest in sales, building, and communications technology, coupled with an innovative approach to personalized service under a new company brand: Trendsetter Homes. His goal is as simple as it is All-American: to provide homebuyers in southwest Missouri a brand-new homeowner experience — superior to anything seen before in the area.

And the name Trendsetter Homes could not be more fitting. Everything — from the personal attention of dedicated, full-time Community Managers to the company’s reputation for Old World craftsmanship, and from technologies that allow you to envision your new lifestyle to the ease of communication throughout the process — speaks to Trendsetter Homes’ commitment to an easy, convenient, and seamless homeowner experience.



Beginning with affordable well-appointed home designs built with an unmatched attention to detail, every Trendsetter home can be enhanced with numerous customizing features — a concept originally pioneered by Ryan Cantrell a decade ago. Taking that concept one step further, the innovative Trendsetter Homes website includes interactive floor plans that allow you to select from a wide array of architectural styles and interior designs and then preview how they would look in your new home. In our fully furnished and decorated model homes — another Trendsetter innovation in the southwest Missouri area — home shoppers will find a kiosk where they can view all available home designs in virtual reality.


-But don’t let the mention of technological advances give you the idea that buying a Trendsetter home is an impersonal experience — it is anything but! Trendsetter Homes strives every day to put you at ease. We are the first homebuilder in the area to offer full-time, dedicated Community Managers on-site seven days a week in all our communities, ensuring a personal touch not to be found elsewhere. We take pride in providing clear, concise, courteous communication throughout to ensure your comfort and confidence.


Whether your family’s roots in Missouri go back six generations or you’re just getting ready to plant them now, Trendsetter Homes is here to make the transition into a brand new home easier than you’ve ever imagined. Our reputation as “Springfield’s Preferred Home Builder” is built on three pillars: Quality Construction, Honest Service, and Exceptional Value.

            Throughout the process, our goal is to make you feel at home. From your first visit to the Sales Office, to accompanied hard hat tours of your home while it’s under construction, and all the way through move-in and beyond, we focus on providing incomparable quality and unparalleled service.

            We are small enough to care and big enough to deliver on Your American Dream.

Our dreams may be different, but our hearts have but one desire: a place that feels like home. Whatever your ideal life looks like, Trendsetter Homes makes it easy to achieve your American Dream.
