D.R. Horton -- Over 35 Years of Experience & Commitment -- America's #1 Builder since 2002
It is widely known in real estate that three of the most important things to consider when buying real estate is Location, Location, Location. D.R. Horton knows there are many other considerations just as important to homebuyers as location. For over 35 years, D.R. Horton homes have been designed and built with a focus on quality and value, while including livable floor plans, energy efficient features, a home warranty - and the list goes on.
Over 35 years ago, Donald R. Horton had a vision of livable and affordable new homes built with unmatched efficiencies and uncompromising quality. Of family traditions passed on to new generations. Of a business that would grow by making customers’ dreams a reality.
That philosophy of creating value every step of the way was the Company's signature focus when Horton unveiled his first neighborhood in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area over three decades ago. As the Company grew from a local homebuilder, to a regional homebuilder, to ultimately the largest homebuilder in the United States, that philosophy has never wavered.
Today, D.R. Horton continues to demonstrate its leadership in residential development through design innovation, superior craftsmanship, and responsiveness to the needs of its customers.
The simple vision that began over 35 years ago, represents years of value and security when you choose America's Builder to make your dreams come true.
