Awards and Testimonials

We work hard to earn our reputation for excellence.

With so many custom home builders out there to choose from, who can you really trust to build your new home?

How about a builder who:

  • consistently receives both national and regional industry recognition for quality and excellence in construction, business, and sales practices;
  • is nationally ranked as the 36th largest builder in the U.S. and the 18th largest privately-owned builder;
  • and, most importantly, has a strong homeowner recommendation rate.

Most builders are good at one thing, maybe two. But at Drees, we have a reputation for doing it all, be it quality construction, stylish design, customer service, or financial savvy. And we do it all at a level others only aspire to. Excellence is built into our family tradition of home building.

Homeowner recommendations

There's much to be said for growing your business by word of mouth. It means you've done such a good job, that clients are willing to put their own reputations on the line to recommend you, especially to a friend. And so, while industry accolades and rankings are important, what means most to us is what our homeowners have to say.
