After leaving the University of Maryland, Joel Rensberger has gained over 24 years of experience in construction management across Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. From childhood to the present day (almost 39 years since he first worked with dad) he has also been working with his own hands on various projects ranging from a 1790’s home renovation to leading a ‘hyper-build’ for ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Joel has received professional training and experience from the area’s leading homebuilders, and traditional methods, values and technique from his father, and grandfather.
Joel has launched a custom homebuilding company that prides itself on openness, candor, honest work and good value. His focus is on quality site preparation and home siting, proper costing, timely completion, and superior execution of any manner of large residential projects. All the while, Joel remains open and available to the customer throughout the work week to ensure a great experience.
Having relocated personally many times, Liz Burrow has a deep appreciation for the necessity of a dedicated and professional real estate agent to assist with the process of selecting a home site through the appropriate features to be included in the particular market or neighborhood. She is able to offer C.E. Rensberger’s clients understanding and empathy throughout the entire process of buying or selling their home that can only be gained through personal experience.
Liz believes that communication is key to any successful transaction and keeping her clients informed every step of the way, making sure that they are comfortable with every aspect of the process. She too is available to clients almost always—except when attending a swim meet for her children!

Chuck grew up in small town Hershey Pennsylvania and attended Clarion University. He’s chosen to raise his family in Frederick County, Maryland. Chuck is in tune with today’s market and is adapting constantly (thank you Chuck). The information that can be obtained through various resources can be overwhelming and confusing with lending. Chuck brings over 21 years of mortgage experience; he strives to educate our clients on the options and possibilities that exist. Chuck helps provide clarity so clients make a sound financial decision for their particular situation. Knowing that his clients have entrusted him to help handle possibly “the single biggest transaction of their lives” is not taken for granted, ever.
Chuck is a resident of Lake Linganore in Frederick County. Having two kids of his own, he understands schedules can sometimes be tough and is flexible in trying to meet the needs of his clients. When not immersed in his work, he enjoys helping coach his two sons in various sports and spending time with his family. On occasion, he may even get out to play a round of golf.

Megan’s first experience with custom-home building dates back to one of her early jobs held in 2000 as she supported purchasing and client contracts for a home builder near her original hometown of Dillsburg, Pennsylvania. Megan has called Frederick County her home since 2003, and her appreciation for quality construction with a collaborative design approach, brought her to C.E. Rensberger as first a client and now a team member. Megan brings with her not only a love for the home-building process, but attention to detail. She holds a Master’s Degree in Education, but also offers project management experience gained as a former independent, small business owner. Her ability to connect with clients through the shared building process, as well as understand the scope of construction and connect with the trades, makes her a natural fit to C.E. Rensberger.
Megan enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and three children. From the beach to hiking the woods, or planning the next home project, adventure awaits!
