“In our search for a new home, our Realtor notified us that a Walker DesignBuild project was available in the Sanctuary community. We found a floor plan we liked, that Wes Walker said could be customized as construction had not yet started. This was ideal for us since we loved the home site and required a design that could accommodate our multi-generational living needs. We were also pleased to learn that Wes would be able to work with the septic layout to accommodate a pool on this lot. In the past we have worked with other builders who fell short of expectations, so it was very important to us that we felt we could trust the construction company we chose. We never had cause to question the decision to work with Walker DesignBuild. Wes and his team kept to the schedule and budget, and were flexible in terms of us making changes to the original floor plan and making amendments to the contract as construction proceeded. Their office was well run, Wes was straight with us on pricing and the timing of the project, and we were kept informed when a decision needed to be made by us. We selected all of the finishes and could choose where to splurge because the budgets were communicated as part of the contract, so we always knew where we stood when we went to pick out lighting, plumbing fixtures, etc. We especially appreciated the skills of our trim carpenter, who built us beautiful built-ins based on a snapshot we provided, and our deck subcontractor was very good in building specialty items requested, including a trellis and handicap ramp. Wesley and Jesus, the finishing crew team, were responsive and aggressive in getting the punch list items resolved. Frankly, we were nervous to close on the home financials prior to the punch list being completed, as we have had issues in the past with getting a contractor out once the project was off their books, but this was not a problem with Walker DesignBuild, and the punch list items were completed in a timely fashion. After experiencing all phases of the home building process, from lot selection, to home plan selection and customization, septic approval, construction, landscaping, and move in, we have no regrets with our decision to hire Walker DesignBuild to complete our new home!”  -GARY AND SUSAN BATALLER


“I had been looking at townhomes because I didn’t want anything too big and I didn’t want a yard to take care of, yet I was looking for high end features. After seeing a sign for Charleston Traditions at Bowling Green, I visited the community and found the homes to be beautiful and unique. I discovered Walker DesignBuild was the builder for a home underway, so I did some research on the company, reviewed their website, and explored virtual tours of plans they offered in the community. I was attracted to their style, really liked that they are a custom builder, and found the layouts of their Charleston-style homes very appealing. My Realtor also had very good things to say about Walker DesignBuild’s reputation. I did some comparison shopping and discovered that features offered in nearby townhome communities were not as sophisticated as what I’d seen in Walker DesignBuild’s homes. After making the decision to purchase the home that was currently under construction, I found it easy to work with Wes. He was very responsive, pleasant, and flexible. I was able to choose the floors, carpet, and granite, as well as upgrade the patio. Several design details already in place, including the cabinets and the shower upgrade, were exactly what I would have chosen anyway. I am very happy with the excellent use of space, both indoors and out, of my well-built home, and I’m very happy with its custom features in line with current trends. I think it is a great value and will be timeless. The Walker DesignBuild team thought of everything to make my home useful, cozy, enjoyable, solid, and beautiful.”  -JILL BUCHANAN


My daughter and I saw a Walker DesignBuild home in Sanford’s Autumnwood and we liked the design, quality of workmanship, and price. When my wife and I were looking for a home, I remembered the home in Autumnwood and drove her there to see what she thought. She told me, ‘I would love to have this home, but in Pittsboro.’ So, happy wife, happy life! From our first phone call, Randy and Wes Walker seemed genuinely interested in meeting with us. This was our first home building experience and we were pretty apprehensive at our first face-to-face meeting, but the Walkers put us at ease and patiently explained the steps involved in building a custom home. We were on the cusp of buying our lot, and Randy offered to come walk the lot we were considering purchasing. He encouraged us to realize our vision of the house before finalizing the plans. Ultimately, the final house plan was basically what we had seen in Autumnwood, but with modifications. We felt that Walker DesignBuild truly helped us capture our vision. Once construction was underway, our day-to-day contact was with Karen. She was terrific in answering or getting answers to our questions, and she kept us on schedule with the necessary supplier meetings. It was fascinating to see what goes into building a house! We very definitely and without hesitation recommend Walker DesignBuild. They offer a variety of designs that fit a wide range of budgets and needs, and provide personalized service every step of the way.”  -DAN EARLEY


You have made this process (ever since the beginning, when we met with Randy) so wonderful that it has been a joy working with all of you and we just wanted to take a moment and say thank you! Thank you for being patient with all of our questions and taking time to answer them and making us feel like part of the team. This may sound strange, but we also appreciate you taking the time to make things right. Your team is very professional in making sure all the details are correct and if there is an issue, the team is right there and willing to make it right. This makes home building more enjoyable and the professionalism from the team is outstanding! We are excited about our new house!”  -RAFE AND CANDY DAVIDSON


We have built before with other builders and Walker DesignBuild was the best we’ve ever worked with. We walked through several of their homes and they were very much in line with what we were looking for. The construction in every Walker home we visited was outstanding, and we were impressed with how functional the layouts were… Very logical and with minimal wasted space. We were also impressed with the standard features built into their homes. What also sets Walker DesignBuild apart is their team. Wes met us at the home we were considering and spent a great deal of time with us prior to us even putting an offer on the home. And Karen was awesome. She provided us with a detailed selection schedule with points of contact and due dates to keep the build on schedule. All we had to do was make the appointments at our convenience and get our selections in on time. She was always immediately available via phone or email for questions and even met with us and some of the vendors to answer questions. We will absolutely recommend Walker DesignBuild to others due to their great designs, high quality construction, and their team of people who care about making sure your home meets your needs.”  -CRAIG AND KERI ATWATER


As a builder’s/seller’s agent, I have had a wonderful working relationship with Walker DesignBuild. Ideas and information flow back and forth easily and I value the collaborative nature of our relationship. Qualities that you don’t always see with other builders is their quick communication, detailed information, and true custom building abilities. I never have to follow up with them because they are so efficient in responding to requests for information. When Walker DesignBuild provides details on what they will deliver to their clients, they leave no questions unanswered. I consistently see home buyers extremely pleased with Walker DesignBuild’s organized team approach. They work with some of the area’s most seasoned architects and are eager to create a custom plan perfect for their buyers. The beautiful curb appeal of their homes wins the hearts of buyers from the start, and their gourmet kitchens, impressive trim packages, extensive tile work, and current floor plans with energy efficient features provide clients with a place they can be proud to call home. Whether buying a finished home or designing a home from scratch, clients will enjoy working with Walker DesignBuild.”  -CHRIS FAUGHNAN | Builder’s/Seller’s Agent, CB HPW Builder Services


We lived in Amberly and enjoyed the community so much that when we began looking for a new home, we knew we wanted to stay in the neighborhood. The lot we fell in love with was owned by Walker DesignBuild, and after meeting Randy and learning about the home plan he was proposing for the lot, we immediately wanted to work with him. Ultimately, we worked directly with Wes and Karen and found that they were always very courteous, responsive, and respectful of our questions and requests. They were flexible during the building process to suit our personal needs. We truly felt like they were taking excellent care of us. We have built other homes in the past and kept comparing those experiences to this one, and found that this process was so much better thanks to the efficiency of Karen and the building team. Our experience was very positive and our home turned out really, really well! The value of our home is awesome and we look forward to raising our family here.”  -JOSH AND JAMY MCGEE


We were relocating from out of state and did most of our real estate research online. After scheduling a visit to the sales office at Amberly, we were given information on all of the builders in that community, including Walker DesignBuild. It was immediately clear to us that the finishes that Walker DesignBuild offered were much more customized than those of many of the national builders. In seeing their model home, we noticed right away the real hardwood floors, high quality kitchen cabinets, fully tiled shower walls, coffered ceilings, and many more custom details that were very appealing to us. The home we selected was already under construction, but we were able to make many of our own design selections. As an out of town customer, we had to handle most of our communication via email, and we found that Karen was very responsive to our needs. We were even able to set up an appointment with Randy over Labor Day weekend to accommodate our limited availability to be in town for walk-throughs. The building process was very organized and at closing we were given a binder that included essential information we would need for our new home. This has already been a useful resource! Customer service was definitely a big plus of working with Walker DesignBuild. We are very happy with our home. We love that the house was custom designed with all of the fine details that were important to us.”  -STEVE AND TANYA M.


We actually stumbled into finding our new home! We were relocating to the Triangle area and we drove around to look at potential homes and neighborhoods. The first thing we noticed when we visited this house was how much thought and detail had been put into the home’s design. We also immediately recognized the high quality of the construction. Once we began the purchase process, Mr. Walker was extremely accommodating with us. Since we were living out of town, he took time to meet with us on a Saturday to discuss a few final details that we wanted to add to the home to make it fit our needs. We were extremely pleased with how easy it was to work with the Walker DesignBuild team throughout the entire process. They have also been very helpful by providing us with great resources and references for various services, and that has made a difference in making the house our home as we have settled in. Our careers have required us to make several moves, and we have bought and sold many homes. Working with Walker DesignBuild has been the most professional and the easiest in all of our experiences! We would be happy to refer other homebuyers to this jewel of a company!”  -JO LYNN AND CARL PERRY


We were relocating to the Triangle Area and while driving around to explore Pittsboro, we discovered Mann’s Crossing. After looking more closely at the community, we found a Walker DesignBuild home that was already under construction and was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a little bit of property, and the lot provided us with the space and privacy we desired. The home, which is the Crawford II plan, was perfect for us with its first floor master suite. We were able to make a few final selections to customize the home to our needs and we found Walker DesignBuild very helpful, cooperative, and enjoyable to work with. Their experience in building custom homes and their excellent style and taste were impressive. We’re very happy in our new home and we’ll definitely recommend Walker DesignBuild to others.”  -AL AND LINDA GREAVER


“Kitchen & Bath Galleries has been providing Walker DesignBuild customers with appliances since conception. We have set up a great basic package of appliances, but they allow the home buyer the opportunity to make changes. Walker DesignBuild is built around customer relations and service. Attention to detail is very important to them, and it is noticeable during walk throughs of their homes. I always reinforce to Walker DesignBuild’s home buyers that they have chosen an excellent builder and that they will be very satisfied with the process and end product.”  -LEE ROTHSTEIN | Kitchen & Bath Galleries


We’re very much looking forward to seeing the house! We just looked up our first contact with Randy and it was August 18, 2014. We came with no lot, no plans, and this was fully developed into a finished product (with all HOA approvals) in 301 days! Lot clearing started Dec 12, 2014 and we’ll be looking at a completed house on June 15, 2015 (185 days). Never mind that this was all done with us living 1000 miles away thanks to great communication. Thanks for everyone’s work as we approach the finish!”  -LAURA AND BRIAN FUELLEMAN


When we toured Sunset Bluffs, we visited several spec homes and found that the one built by Walker DesignBuild had everything we were looking for at a great price. The design was well thought out and the home included a sealed crawlspace, tankless water heater, a fence, and other desirable features. Mr. Walker spent more than an hour showing us the house and it was clear that he stood 100% behind his work. The biggest strength of Walker DesignBuild is the family feel and character of the company. Everyone was responsive to all of our requests and were proactive in helping us throughout the entire process. During the final walk-through, we received a beautifully organized package with all of the information we needed, including vendor and warranty information. We absolutely love our new home and look forward to making many memories here.”  -ERICH AND COLLEEN MCGILVREAY


We were interested in custom building a home and after our Realtor showed us a completed Walker DesignBuild house, we knew right away that we wanted to work with them. Their sense of design and style, and the unique custom features in the home were what we wanted. After selecting a lot in Mann’s Crossing, we began working with Randy and Wes in radically modifying a house plan that we had previously chosen. Throughout the entire process, we were impressed with the flexibility, adaptability, and openness to communication of the Walker DesignBuild team. We made many special requests and alterations during the process and often had questions and additional input, and they were always willing to listen and work with us. A very important aspect of working with Walker DesignBuild is that you have access to Randy and Wes — they are just a phone call away. Randy, Wes, and Karen get very high marks because they went the extra mile for us more than once. Without question, we would absolutely recommend Walker DesignBuild to potential home buyers.


Walker DesignBuild did a fantastic job for my wife and me in giving us a new driveway, a carport, and a storage shed addition. They did the job on time, as scheduled, and on budget. We are very pleased with the quality of their work. The roof of the storage shed ties in seamlessly with the roof of our house. You would never know that it wasn’t a part of the original plan. In talking with Randy and Wes prior to selecting them to do the job, we were impressed that they said one of them would be onsite every day, checking to make sure the work was being executed as planned. They were true to their word in this and all other aspects. We highly recommend Walker DesignBuild to anyone seeking remodeling work.”  -MARK HANNA


As an onsite agent, responsiveness matters. When you have a potential client looking to purchase a home, you need a builder who is willing to get you information and estimates quickly. The Walker DesignBuild team is awesome to work with in every way. They are responsive to emails, texts, and phone calls. Whenever one of them isn’t available, the others are there to pick up and you don’t feel like you miss a beat. They are also very responsive in the home plans and design homes that buyers are looking for. They are quick to adjust to their market, making sure that they offer the very best for their buyers. They have been a privilege to work with in the Sunset Families for many years now and hopefully for many more successful years to come.”  -KATHY PIERCE | Onsite Agent, Sunset Bluffs


My wife and I had a terrific experience with Walker DesignBuild in the renovation of our kitchen, master bath, and downstairs bath. We’ve been in our home for 18 years and had been thinking of making some updates for quite awhile, but we’d heard that remodeling work could be a nightmare. Fortunately, we had the exact opposite experience with Walker DesignBuild… Working with them was a dream. We worked primarily with Wes Walker, who is just a really nice guy and very down to earth. He listened to us and answered our questions in terms we could easily understand. Equally important, he was very honest with us. When we asked for things that were not good ideas structurally, he gave us excellent alternatives. I have nothing but good things to say… I admit that I’m pretty picky as a customer, and both my wife and I are very, very pleased with the work that was done by Wes and his outstanding team of sub-contractors. Friends have effusively complimented the renovation as well. We’re thrilled with the work Walker DesignBuild did for us, and we recommend them with no hesitation.


Our new space looks like it’s been here all along… That’s how skilled Randy and Wes are at creating seamless transitions. After living in our remodeled home for almost a year now, we are just as delighted today as we were when the project was completed. My advice for anyone considering a remodeling project is to not look solely at cost when making decisions. Talk to people who’ve had their home remodeled, and listen closely to what they say about their experiences. In our case, we are very, very happy with our choice to work with Walker DesignBuild. Randy and Wes put their hearts and souls into their work, and it shows. Their workmanship is excellent, they give great advice when asked, and they are just nice people. We are so pleased with what they’ve done for us.”  -HODA GABRIEL


Working with Wes Walker of Walker DesignBuild was great – excellent work, done in a timely manner, at a competitive price, and with little inconvenience to us. Wes was very considerate of our schedule and needs. He would arrive early before the workers if we needed to leave early on a particular morning. He personally oversaw every step of the project. He checked on every detail we asked about and rechecked if we had additional questions. He made suggestions and also listened to our ideas. From start to finish, he was totally professional and accountable for the renovations. He even did extra things to make our house look better than when he began. We love the finished third floor – bedroom, playroom, wet bar, full bathroom, and storage area. We would definitely choose Wes Walker and Walker DesignBuild again.”  -JOHN AND MERNA GALASSI


My wife Michele and I contracted with Walker DesignBuild to finish our third floor. Wes Walker and his team did a fabulous job and kept us informed on a daily basis on the status of the job. He showed a great attention to detail and did everything possible to minimize the impact of the job on our daily life. His crew was very professional and kept the job site very clean and orderly throughout the process. Wes was very attentive and accessible to all of our questions and needs. The job was finished on time and we couldn’t be happier with the result. We strongly recommend Walker DesignBuild as a first rate remodeling contractor.”  -KEVIN JUDGE


I have known Randy and his team since 2005. Walker DesignBuild was one of the top custom builders that we represented in Cameron Pond, Highcroft/Highcroft Village, and Weycroft. I have always been impressed with their attention to detail, which probably stems from Randy’s engineering background from Virginia Tech. The trim packages, screened porch details, front doors, front porches, and usable 3rd floors (where applicable) are all outstanding selling points for their homes. They even give the landscaping their full attention by sodding the entire yard, and installing nice plants and mulch. This gives their homes beautiful curb appeal. Their homes are priced extremely competitively and include an extended warranty, which is something many local builders don’t do. With Walker DesignBuild, it’s about people first and they are truly invested in the area. They live and work here and consider their customers their business partners.”  -RICK NEWNHAM | Broker/Realtor, The Jim Allen Group, Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston
