Three years ago, we moved back to Raleigh after being away for almost sixteen years. While shopping for a new home, we came across houses with the Collins name on them.
There was something special about these houses that made them stand out from all the others. We had known of the Collins family and their reputation for quality-built custom homes from living in this area before. As we continued our search for the perfect house, we always came back to those with a Collins “for sale” sign.
Finally, we met with Don Collins and discussed the plans for one of the last lots in the neighborhood that we wanted our kids to grow up in. As he started construction on the house, we decided it was the one for our family. We made changes and added challenging items which he had not dealt with before (i.e. elevator accessible to four floors), but these were not a hurdle for him. Throughout the construction process, Don readily gave creative suggestions, which customized our home and enhanced its value to us. At the same time, he helped us maintain a reasonable budget and informed us of any price differences as we deviated from the original plans. This was nice because there were no surprises at the closing.
Don Collins comes from a reputable family of builders, and it is upon this foundation that he has enhanced his business through his creativity, eye for detail, and willingness to try new ideas.
He has always been available for questions and he appears very sincere about providing his customers with a high-end quality product. Don has always been pleasant in interactions and business transactions.
It was for these reasons that we asked him to finish our basement and sunroom addition. If you are in the market for a new home, we recommend Don Collins without any reservations!
