My boyfriend and I are hoping to relocate to Charlotte and eventually buy a new home. We have looked at a few neighborhoods and I really love the DW homes. He liked Ryan homes but after doing a small amount of research they sound like a nightmare. Does anyone know anything about David Weekly? They seem great to me.

Thanks!

I have a friend that owns one in a community in Union County. They have owned it since new for about 6 years now and are really happy. So much they are considering purchasing another one close by for investment.

As for Ryan homes I own one, my entire community was built by Ryan and everyone that we have spoken to has been very pleased. I work in the business and have a very diligent and picky inspector. He always comments on the quality of Ryan foundations, slabs, and framing.

I know there are people that have had bad experiences as with all builders but wanted to give you my personal experience.

Ryan's customer service is excellent.

I have a Ryan home in NC and am very pleased. I believe if you dig a little further, you will find that most (if not all) of the complaint were in the Northeast. I couldn't find any in this area.

Ryan Homes in (Sutton Place) sold me a house on a lot that couldn't build on! I did get my money back however.

Ryan Homes has been laying people off by the dozens in Charlotte and leaving their youngest, most inexperienced project managers to run things in their neighborhoods. They had already started to cut corners with materials and subs a while back. I suppose it's true that they're all doing this but my father used to work for them and is really saddned by what he's seen lately.

jerseygirl, they just had their 3rd round of layoffs and my PM sweated out this last one (round of layoffs).


However, its not a Ryan problem, (John Wieland has also had massive layoffs too), its an industry problem that's been going on well over a year like I've been saying.


Whoever the PM (Proj Mgr) is, you still need to stay on them if you want to get your issues resolved.

Jack is right. One of my good friends is a Project Manager with Ryan. They moved him out of his community and thankfully transfered him to Multi-Family Development.

I am currently working with David Weekley to build a home. So far they have been terrific. Their homes are beautiful and they have earned many national awards.

I've sold a number of Ryan Homes and have had very good experiences with them. They stand behind their warranties and provide good customer service even with resales. However, David Weekly is a quality builder. I would say weight the odds and compare prices.
