Meet Our Team
Jeff Sanderson, Founder/Owner
Named after his two daughters, Jeff began Whitney Blair Custom Homes and his building career in Chapel Hill, NC, where he established a successful track record in residential building and land development. With a love of the NC coast, Jeff decided to re-locate the company to Sunset Beach, NC, in the late 90’s. There, he quickly established a reputation with Whitney Blair Custom Homes as a premier designer and builder of classic coastal homes in the area’s most prestigious communities. As a member of the Southern Living Custom Builder Program, Jeff is a 2-time recipient of the Southern Living Custom Builder of the Year award and is a multi-year Board Member of the Southern Living Custom Builder Program. Jeff recently served as President of the Brunswick County Home Builders Association (HBA) for 2 consecutive terms, helping to influence and lead the HBA in a number of new initiatives that were adopted by the HBA and continue today. He continues to hone his talents as the only NC/SC dual-state holder of accreditations as a SC-Certified Master Builder and NC-Accredited Master Builder. National NAHB accreditations include GMB (Graduate Master Builder), CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialist) and CGP (Certified Green Professional) recognizing his clients’ desires to build environmentally responsible homes that also allow them to age in place.

Chantelle Manchester, Operations Manager
Chantelle’s journey with Whitney Blair Custom Homes began a decade ago, where she started as an interior designer. Armed with a degree in interior design, she embarked on a path to create captivating spaces that people could call their own.
Over the years, her role has organically evolved. Driven by an innate attention to detail and diverse skillset, she found herself taking on a myriad of responsibilities, becoming an integral part of this dynamic company. While she still has a deep-seated love for interior design, her focus has shifted toward a more managerial role, one that she genuinely enjoys.
As the Operations Manager, she relishes the opportunity to guide, support, and lead our talented team. Her commitment is to ensure that every project is executed seamlessly, reflecting not only her passion for design but also her dedication to the smooth operation of the business.
