Griffin Square Grand Opening!

Griffin Square Grand Opening!

Grand Openings are always very exciting as we have the opportunity to reveal what we have been working on for months or even years!  The Griffin Square Grand Opening will be no exception as we roll out a brand new product design and an enclave featuring a pocket park that is exclusively custom homes from Homes By Dickerson.

This new section of Wendell Falls will boast 42 home sites, all of which will accommodate our newly-designed Grayson model home with its array of optional additions including a casita or guest suite, a home office, or a shed/storage space.  Choose from one of our home sites which border the beautiful common area to get a park view or from one of our home sites which back up against the trees for a great view of the woods!

Spring Open House Tour in Wendell Falls!

Spring Open House Tour in Wendell Falls!

As Wendell Falls has stated, “It’s a great day for a joy ride!” and Homes By Dickerson does like to bring joy to others.  So, however you have decided to spend your March 9th (this Saturday!), make sure to include an afternoon at the Spring Open House Tour in Wendell Falls where you can grab one of the bicycles and take a tour of this incredible community!  Strap on a helmet, cruise by the amenity centers (fitness, pool, slides, playgrounds, dog parks, amphitheater and more!) and then head out for the trails, the trees, and of course… the falls!   Speaking of cruising, make sure you stop by the brand new Cruizers and see the oh-so-cool mural with its bright colors and artistic design.

Then of course while you are out about (fingers crossed for some Carolina blue skies and spring air!), you are going to want to stop in and see the Homes By Dickerson team in our new solar-powered model home (one of the first solar-powered model homes in the state!).

 

If you have not had a chance to tour the Concord model home, you are in for a treat!  Vaulted ceilings, stained beams, built-in shelving, custom trim details, barn doors, and so much more await you in our 2018 Parade of Homes Gold Winner!  Oh, and of course there will be snacks-as in ice cold margaritas and chips with salsa and dips.  I don’t know about you but I cannot think of a better way to spend a North Carolina spring afternoon than experiencing the charming sights and sounds of Wendell Falls.

March 9th from 12pm-5pm, “It will be a great day for a joy ride!”

Wendell Falls Homeowners Enjoy Holiday Sip and Shop!

We continue to share how amazing the Wendell Falls neighborhood is from its gorgeous views and fantastic amenities to its friendly atmosphere.  This past weekend was yet another reason that our homeowners love living in a Homes By Dickerson custom design in Wendell Falls: the chance to ring in The Holiday Season with neighbors and new friends!

Homes By Dickerson was excited to participate in the annual Sip and Shop festivities in Wendell Falls, coordinated by Newland Communities.  Vendors from all over the area displayed their beautiful wares just in time for the gift-giving season as residents of Wendell and invited guests were able to tour our award-winning model home and enjoy delicious holiday refreshments!  Not only did guests have the opportunity to see firsthand our craftsmanship and attention to detail, but they also were able to envision their friends and family celebrating the holidays in The Home of Their Life!  This was a great opportunity for us to explain how they could receive $5000 towards any of our move-in ready homes if they go to contract by the end of the year!*

This is not by far the first homeowner event that Homes By Dickerson in Wendell Falls has been involved in and it definitely will not be the last.  We love any opportunity to connect people together in our custom-designed homes!  We received rave reviews from everyone who was able to attend and we are already looking forward to next year’s event!

HBD Homeowners Enjoy Fall Potluck in Wendell Falls

HBD Homeowners Enjoy Fall Potluck in Wendell Falls

Homes By Dickerson Homeowners Enjoy a Delicious Fall Potluck in Wendell Falls!
As a home builder, our goal is to do more than just build houses.  Our passion is to build homes where people can share their lives with their neighbors, forming lasting relationships and a sense of community.  However, that is not always as easy as it sounds.  It takes a special group of homeowners who have chosen a neighborhood for the same reasons and it takes a builder who is dedicated to nurturing and developing those relationships.  Wendell Falls is the perfect example of that specific scenario.  The Homes By Dickerson homeowners who have chosen to call Wendell Falls home have naturally come together to start forming that bond.  Though they come from all walks of life (empty nesters, professionals, young parents, mature families), they have found common interests provided by the area, lifestyle and amenities of this award-winning community and have expanded upon that foundation to create lasting friendships.

In order to support the growing sense of community among our Wendell Falls homeowners, Homes By Dickerson decided to invite all of its Wendell Falls homeowners to a Fall Potluck in our new model home on November 17th!  Residents were encouraged to bring a favorite recipe to share with neighbors and the HBD team.  Bonds were strengthened, new friendships developed, and a good time was had by all!

We are incredibly proud of every community that we build in-each one is unique and wonderful in its own way-but there is something truly special about the wooded views, sounds of water, and winding paths of Wendell Falls.  Not to mention the togetherness created by The Farmhouse meeting place and Grounds Cafe!  Here are a few pictures of our wonderful event and we look forward to many more to come!















For more information on how you can become a Homes By Dickerson homeowner in Wendell Falls, contact Whitney White at 919-917-3132 or Whitney@HomesByDickerson.com.  You can also check out our move-in ready opportunities so that you can call yourself a Wendell Falls homeowner before the end of the year!

Another Wake County Parade of Homes for the Books!

Another Wake County Parade of Homes for the Books!

Every year The Homes By Dickerson team spends countless months, long days into long nights, making sure that Parade of Homes accurately represents the best of our talents, the best of our resources, and the best of our passions.  Our reasoning is clear: We want our buyers to know that we can make their dreams a reality.  We want our homeowners to walk through the rooms we have built for them,  envisioning their life held within those very walls.  We want to continue researching, brainstorming, perfecting, designing, and building the best custom, high-performance homes available.  Parade of Homes allows us to do just that.  At the end of the day, it is not about the awards or the accolades within our industry-though we are honored to receive them.  We are just excited to take a breath, enjoy the moment, and start planning our showstoppers for 2019.  Here is to another fantastic Parade of Homes and to some incredible results from the Wake County and Durham/Orange/Chatham Parade of Homes Galas with all 8 of our 2018 Parade Homes winning an award!

Parade to “The Home of Your Life!”

Parade to “The Home of Your Life!”

It always takes me a while to mentally transition from summer to fall-more so than with other changes of season-but then I see the slight tinges of orange and red slowly painting the leaves or get a whiff of autumn spices and realize that fall is in fact here!   For The Homes By Dickerson team, the beginning of fall is a flurry of activity as we prepare for the largest showcase of homes throughout the year-The Triangle Parade of Homes.  We have poured through design ideas, sketched, and dreamed.  We have swept, scrubbed, painted, and planted.  We have walked each community, searching for ways to improve all of the little details to ensure a stellar experience for you.  Now we take a breath, step back and present you with 9 amazing homes that embody everything we are and believe in as a custom, high-performance builder.

We invite you to join us over the next three weekends (October 6-7th, 12-14th, and 19th-21st: 12pm-5pm each day) for the 2018 Parade of Homes where you will see your dreams and visions come to life! Intricate trim detail, gorgeous woodwork, decadent tile patterns, custom layouts, beautiful elevations, curb appeal, and so much more await you at every turn.  The only thing that is missing is you!  Tour Homes By Dickerson’s 2018 Parade of Homes and find “The Home of Your Life” today!

Life in Wendell Falls

Life in Wendell Falls

Life in Wendell Falls. If you’re looking for more than just a home, you’ve found it. If you’re looking for a community in the truest sense of the word, look no further. If you’re looking for a place to call home that has everything you could possible wish for within an arm’s reach, welcome to Wendell Falls.

Now my perspective is unique. Yes, I am a new home consultant with Homes By Dickerson but I was a Wendell Falls resident first. Two years ago, my wife and I were looking for a new home community. We had a 2-year-old daughter, we were expecting our son any day and we had a really big dog.  We were busting out of our townhome. Like busting. #NeedSpaceNow
Oh yeah, and there was some serious 9 months pregnancy nesting happening.

We did what I imagine many new home customers would do that consider themselves “city people”.  We looked for a new home in our price range everywhere in Raleigh but found almost nothing that would work for us. Yet it was important that we stay close to downtown Raleigh. So, we started to look South. Nothing. And West. Nope. And North. Definitely nope. Zilch. And it wasn’t until a friend suggested we look East that we stumbled, almost literally, upon Wendell Falls.

I had really never been East of Raleigh but we were blown away to discover that it had almost everything we were looking for in a new home community and what it lacked is now under development and on the way. Even though it had all of the things that were important to us (close distance to downtown Raleigh but with a quaint small town feel; outdoor amenities like hiking/biking trails, a pool, amphitheater for outdoor music, etc.; a brand new home that we could afford), it wasn’t until we actually spent some time in Wendell Falls that we decided to call it home. #LifeinWendellFalls



Here is what we did. Every Sunday we would hang out at The Farmhouse, more specifically Grounds Café, like we lived here. We would come out, let our daughter play on the playground while we sipped on some of the best coffee we’ve ever tasted. We did the “Resident for a Day” program, swam in the pool and enjoyed a delicious lunch. We would get to know the people that already lived in the neighborhood and tell them we were thinking of moving here. Funny thing, we met SO MANY people that were doing just what we were doing. Some of our closest friends in the neighborhood came from those initial visits. We drove and timed the drive to downtown Raleigh. 18 minutes BTW if you drive like me. And what was probably most fun was coming out to enjoy ourselves at the Farmhouse Jams Summer Concert Series. They say “The music is free but it’s B.Y.O.C (bring your own chair).” So that’s what we did. And. It. Was. Awesome. Food, fun, music, beverages, kids’ games, adult games, sunshine. It is what sealed the deal for us.

As a side note, the next Farmhouse Jams is coming up at 5:30 pm on September 8th, (which happens to be my birthday FYI) and features JOHNNY FOLSOM 4, a Johnny Cash cover band. You’re welcome.

If you’re thinking about life in Wendell Falls, come test it out and have some fun with us. If Wendell Falls hadn’t yet made your radar, I hope it is on there now and that you’ll join us for some fun and community.

Ok, now I will use my sales person voice.

Things are heating up in Wendell Falls!

Located just east of Raleigh (and only a short drive to Downtown!), Wendell Falls is one of the area’s fastest growing neighborhoods.  Developed by the award-winning Newland Communities, this master-planned community is the largest in the Triangle and will embrace 4,000 new homes and over 2 million square feet of retail space over the next several years. 

Now that summer is here, the residents of Wendell Falls are taking advantage of the wonderful amenities woven throughout the community.  Feel like getting some exercise outdoors?  Try exploring more than 10 miles of hiking and biking trails (beautiful winding pathways which are expected to connect to the Mountain-to-Sea trail) or taking your four-legged friend for a walk to the newly finished Wendell Paws Dog Park.
