Another Exciting Round of Parade Awards for Homes By Dickerson!

Another Exciting Round of Parade Awards for Homes By Dickerson!

The Homes By Dickerson team is both honored and humbled by the recognition received at the 2017 Parade of Homes Awards!  After months of designing and building every detail of eight different parade homes across The Triangle, we are proud to bring home SIX Gold Awards, ONE Silver Award and a Perfect Score during the Durham/Orange/Chatham and Raleigh-Wake Parade of Home Galas!   Our streak started strong at the DOC Parade festivities held on October 3rd at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill where both of our Briar Chapel entries brought home the gold.  Our beautiful Covington Farmhouse design in Henderson Place, which competed in the same categories as our Briar Chapel Bristol, was awarded with a silver award as well!   The team carried this momentum until the following week when we attended the Raleigh-Wake event on October 9th at the fantastic Reynolds Coliseum on the NC State Campus.  Homes By Dickerson was beyond thrilled when four of their five homes in the Raleigh Parade Tour were announced as Gold Winners, one even achieving a perfect score by the judges! We know how hard every builder works to showcase their talent and their designs so we are extremely grateful for the attention placed on our custom homes.  It is due to the dedication and commitment from every member of the Homes By Dickerson family that we are able to accept these accolades.

First Stop on the HBD Parade Tour-The Fairfield in Sunset Bluffs!

First Stop on the HBD Parade Tour-The Fairfield in Sunset Bluffs!

If you have not been to this wonderfully-hidden jewel in Fuquay-Varina, add this as an entry in your “must-see” list.  Sunset Bluffs is a growing neighborhood in the southwestern part of Wake County bursting with single-family homes, tree-lined sidewalks, beautiful views and convenient amenities all in a tranquil setting.  Nestled among these wooded home sites is The Fairfield, a Sunset Bluffs Parade entry from Homes By Dickerson.  When you walk into this home, get ready to long for crisp autumn days, cozy blankets and a best-seller!  This clean farmhouse style is light and airy with rustic elements found throughout the plan starting with the naturally stained columns and dark green/gray siding on the exterior.  The kitchen has a variety of custom details from the “X” pattern in the woodwork (look specifically on the side of the island and on the barn doors leading to the pantry) to the hints of charcoal gray in the island.  Carefully-selected pendant lights draw your eye upward, above the island, where the unfinished wood shows off all of its character and texture.

010_ Kitchen

Features in the family room include a charming window seat, shiplap detail as the fireplace surround which extends to the ceiling and a mantle stained to match the hardwood flooring.  The built-in shelving that flank the fireplace are enhanced by transom windows which let in natural light.

013_ Living Room  005_Foyer

The lockers in the drop zone area proudly continue the rustic theme with a shiplap background and a floating beam to sit on which accurately matches the fireplace mantle.

020_ Owners Entry

Upstairs is the master suite which features a surprising tile, gorgeous concrete gray with a fleur-de-lis pattern reminiscent of 18th century architecture and design.  This tile, supporting the stand-alone clawfoot tub, is both a jaw dropper as well as a conversation starter!  It is that perfect texture and color which complements the hint of industrial inspiration found in the incredible fixtures as well as on the floating shelves located in the full basement!  This genre is accented by the spot-on decor where rustic meets elegance and then says “Hello” to natural hues and innovative design.

When I first saw this house, two words came to mind: simply inviting.  It is not hard to see this home with a family comfortably settling in and embracing the character it offers, nurturing it and making it their own.  If these images are speaking to you in the same way, reach out to us at 919-917-3132 or info@homesbydickerson.com to make The Fairfield in Sunset Bluffs “The Home of YOUR Life!” today!

2017 Parade of Homes Sneak Peek!

2017 Parade of Homes Sneak Peek!

It starts in early January.
Conversations begin.  Our architect sketches and designers share snippets of inspiration.  Project managers consider, eliminate and plan.   Sleeves are rolled up as ideas move back and forth and then decisions are made.  For more than 9 months those decisions grow, evolve, and take shape…literally.   Spring has its fair share of initial challenges and summer brings long, hot hours as deadlines loom and expectations rise.   Excitement buzzes around our office around the time that the first leaves begin to fall but not because of cooler temperatures or the change in foliage.  Rather, because we are now putting the finishing touches on eight custom homes which will soon be displayed, judged, admired, and adored.  Rather, because The 2017 Parade of Homes is almost here.

Most of you are probably familiar with The Parade of Homes.  In fact, many of you may have already cleared the first three weekends in October on your calendar to explore, browse, dream, and perhaps even purchase one of these stunning designs.  However, for those of you who are new to The Triangle area, you will want to get this annual fall event on your must-do list. Thousands of people will flock to model homes across several counties to view gorgeous, decorated, move-in ready plans.   Homes By Dickerson will be one of many builders participating in this industry tradition yet our final results will clearly stand out among the rest.

Why? Because The Parade of Homes is so much more to us than just an exaggerated series of open houses.   It is in fact an accumulation of almost a year’s worth of work, an opportunity to display our team‘s immense talent and creativity.   It is the perfect platform to highlight our innovation, our passion, and skill through our unique, custom plans and that of our commitment to building high-performance homes.  Most importantly though, it is the ideal way to help you find “The Home of Your Life.”   Because at the end of the day, this is all about you.  Your dreams, your vision, your family, and your life.  Whether you are looking for a clean farmhouse style with rustic elements, a modernly elegant feel with classic design- or anything in between-Homes By Dickerson will be featuring beautiful, exclusive homes for you to enjoy.  Come see our hand-crafted trim additions, wall enhancements, carefully designed layouts, new and exciting color palettes, and so much more!  While we cannot share all of the wonderful details with you (our designers are making us build up the suspense!), we do want to give you a sneak peek of what is to come.  Here are some pictures of a few of the fixtures and design elements we have included in our 2017 Parade Homes.  We hope that they will have you coming back for more!

Homes By Dickerson wins National Awards!

The Nationals headline

The Homes By Dickerson team was both excited and humbled to be recognized at the National Awards-bringing home two golds and one silver award.  Sponsored by the National Sales and Marketing Council of the National Association of Home Builders, The National Awards salutes the best and brightest in the home building industry for their determination, integrity, creativity and endurance.  The ceremony, presented as part of The International Builders’ Show, was held on January 10th at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando.

Homes By Dickerson Sales Associates Peter Winkler, Whitney White, Diandra Buckheit, Sydney Smith and Susan Ferdon were named National Sales Team of the Year (Gold) and Whitney White was recognized as National Rookie of the Year (Gold)!  Julia Reinert was also mentioned as a silver winner in the Marketing Director of the Year category.

“The Nationals are the most prestigious awards of their kind, setting the benchmark for innovations in new home design, marketing and sales,” said Meredith Oliver, chairperson of the Nationals. “NAHB’s commitment to recognizing originality, imagination and success has been exemplified by its award winners since the competition’s inception.”

Started in 1982 as the Institute of Residential Marketing, The Nationals award program continues to recognize superior new home sales and marketing achievements.  With 57 categories across various disciplines of the new home industry, the awards honor excellence in product and community design, advertising, marketing and sales achievements by individuals and sales teams.

During a three-day judging process, a panel of 7 industry professionals from across the country determined the Silver and Gold award winners from a field of over 1,100 entries.

Homes By Dickerson is proud to be included in such a prestigious group of individuals and companies and appreciates the accompanying accolades!
