Honestly, Dan Ryan made this process as smooth as can be. They have a plan for every step of the process, and they do a great job of communicating. The quality and size of the house you get is a great bang for your buck. We were very pleased with our experience, especially compared to our previous experience with another new home builder. Thanks DRB! ... More

After searching for a home for many months and only finding “bidding wars” or homes that needed a lot of upgrades, we decided to build. We had heard of Dan Ryan but after working with Meredith, we were sold. She was very responsive and helpful and transparent. The work ethic didn’t stop at her...our project managers, Zach and Alec, were responsive and transparent as well. We love our home. More importantly, not only did we get a home from Dan Ryan, we gained new friends/family. ... More

If you not sure about the home buying process ask questions, as many as you can. Keep checking the progress of the home throughout the build, if there's something that concerns you let the builder know right away.

The design center and post-build service we've gotten dealing with Dan Ryan has not been stellar. However, their build team and project management has been VERY good. Most of the build materials were also of good quality, with the exception of some small finishing items like MDF baseboards and lower quality interior door hardware that have already needed repair with only 4 months of occupancy. The overall experience has been positive, and the value we obtained for what we paid for the home to be built was excellent. ... More

I bought my first house from Dan Ryan Builders in Raleigh in 2019. Overall, my experience with DRB was pleasant and I am pleased with my new home. There were a few issues throughout the pre-construction to closing phases; however, each issue was resolved in an efficient manner by the DRB team. I am especially thankful for my Construction Manager and Superintendent as both are friendly yet professional, hard working, and attentive to detail. Prior to the pre-drywall and final meetings I hired a private home inspector to come in after the builders and city home inspectors. In response to the private home inspector's two reports my Construction Manager and Superintendent texted me photos as the items in the private home inspector's reports were fixed. Even after closing, my Construction Manager and Superintendent made themselves available to fix a few minor issues that were not caught on the final meeting punch list. I would recommend DRB to build your next home! ... More

Quality of the interior paint is poor; if you rub up against the wall it leaves marks and cannot be removed with a damp cloth; the paint feels like a primer, not real paint. I still have blue paint stickers where issues need attention; I was not left with a sufficient amount of gray paint to touch up walls, and the five gallon bucket was empty in the attic. During the walk through; I asked for a landscaper to stake down the new tree in my front yard, because it was leaning to far to the left; it was never done. I had to have my own landscaper take care of it. Unfinished wall not painted near shower in master bathroom. ... More

Some of the walls were not painted adequately. Can see repaired patch areas through paint. There are lots of areas. Outside base of house is some type of foam. I have never seen this type of material before in construction. It is beginning to chip from where there has been what appears to be some sought of concrete layer used to give it some sought of smooth finish. It is also easily damaged when mowing and edging around the foundation. The house is nice, the really does not meet expectations of what I feel like it could be when considering the amount of money that is being paid. ... More

The outward appearance of the home was quite luring, Plain and somewhat basic inside but we were able to put our touch on it and make it as beautiful as the models we toured. Although we are growing to love our home, there are other homes in Olde Liberty with a larger floor plan (more sqft) that sold at a cost much less. There were and still are quite a few things that can be fixed/corrected (i.e., slanted counter top, paint specs on all floors, and a ton of nail pops, etc.). Overall DRB has beautiful homes however there is opportunity in terms of quality of workmanship and the value of the home especially for buyers seeking their forever home. ... More

We had far too many issues with our home that we had to point out for our liking. The level of oversight and attention to detail paid by the on-site supervisor(s) was severely lacking. Vendors drinking beer in the home while working and food left in the house show the level of subcontractors.
