Click here to view the Winter 2020 edition of our newsletter!

Six years ago, our leadership team began formulating our 2020 plan which outlined where we saw our company heading in the next decade.  Since that time our plan has been reviewed and studied on a daily basis and has come to tell us more about ourselves than just the bottom line numbers.  It has become a road map of sorts on a variety of goals and has helped us define who we are as a company and what we value.  The 2020 plan has encouraged us to ask the tough questions, create effective processes, and determine our place in this market and in this industry.  What we recognize is that no matter the growth or changes we have seen, we simply remain a group of passionate professionals who build homes that are right for our clients and right for the environment.  Now, the new decade is upon us and our 2020 plan has become a reality.  We are proud to be achieving the goals we set six years ago, an accolade attested to the hard work and dedication of our team.  We know that the building process is not perfect.  It can be long, messy and challenging but we strive to educate you, support you, and make this process as easy as we can-all while building you the highest quality, highest-performance home possible.

So now we raise our classes to you: our current homeowners, future buyers, and loyal Realtor friends!  Here is to a brand-new decade full of new design trends, new communities, new floor plans, creativity, and innovation.

And now on to planning for 2025…

Today, Wendell Falls unveils Publix as its long-awaited anchor grocer for Wendell, North Carolina. Located on-site at Wendell Falls, this site marks the first Publix in east Wake County, bringing a bevy of new food options to the region.

The store will employ approximately 130 associates. Publix at Wendell Falls will join six other open Publix stores in Wake County. An opening date has yet to be established.

“We are excited to launch our newest Publix in Wake County located in Wendell, North Carolina,” said Kim Reynolds, media and community relations manager, Publix Super Markets. “We’ve been expanding across the region to better serve our customers. The growth in this area as well as requests from loyal Publix customers to open a store here contributed to us bringing Publix’s premier service and quality to Wendell. We look forward to serving this great community.”

Publix is working in tandem with East West Partners and G.H.K. Developments, Inc. to develop the Wendell Falls site, and Wendell Falls was represented by CBRE|Raleigh’s Retail Services and Land Services groups. Located at the northwest corner of Wendell Falls Parkway and Taylor Road, Publix will join the growing commercial and retail offerings at Wendell Falls, which currently include KinderCare DaycareFarmhouse Café and Cruizers Convenience Marketplace.

Homes By Dickerson Creates Company Newsletter!

Homes By Dickerson Creates Company Newsletter!

Homes By Dickerson is excited to announce the launch of its first ever newsletter sharing “Inspiration for The Home of Your Life!”

Months ago we tasked ourselves with creating a newsletter which would convey The Homes By Dickerson brand through lifestyle articles, photos, updates, and helpful tips.  Our goal being to connect with those who are still dreaming of a custom home, encourage those who are starting the process, and remain in touch with those who are already part of The Homes By Dickerson family.  Now it is time to launch our newest endeavor and we could not be more excited!

Click here to view the Autumn 2019 edition of our newsletter!

While contemplating when to debut our company newsletter, we immediately thought of Autumn.  There is something incredibly inspiring about the sights, sounds, and fragrances of this season that highlights the spaces in a home.  Outside, leaves are turning deep reds and burnished golds.  Front porches and outdoor living spaces are being graced with flickering lanterns and fall decor.  Kitchens are filled with rich and aromatic spices while family room fireplaces start to blaze and crackle.  Autumn also happens to be when we reveal our custom-built Parade Homes, a line up of nine unique designs which has challenged and pushed our team all year long.  It just made sense that our newsletter would come to life at the same time.

In this issue, our Design Team shares how we are inspired to create the homes we display on Parade.  The reality is that, as a custom builder, our goal is to treat every home as a Parade Home because we are committed to building you The Home of Your Life.  The rooms and spaces that we design are to hold your life in all seasons

Whether you are still in the dreaming phase, looking for a new home, or already a Homes By Dickerson homeowner, we hope that these pages will provide Inspiration for The Home of Your Life!
