Our Story

Founded by Dean DeGross in 1992, Quality Homes quickly built a reputation for excellence and attention to detail. Since then, we have partnered with our customers, bringing more than 1,400 homes to life. For over 25 years, our homes have seen retirement dreams come true, raised families, celebrated birthdays and graduations, hosted holiday parties, family dinners, and have been the envy of neighbors and friends.

For over 25 years, our homes have protected loved ones, comforted families, and served as a shelter from the storms of life. In fact when Hurricane Charley tore a path through Charlotte County in 2004, destroying entire neighborhoods, our homes had very little, if any, damage. When neighbors lost roofs, we lost a few shingles. Where friends lost walls, we replaced a few pieces of soffit. Where loved ones lost their family photos and valuable heirlooms, we simply replaced a few windows and repaired pool cages. These facts reflect our mission and our name – Quality Homes.

For over 25 years, our homes have been sought after by Realtors® and homebuyers, not only for their resale value, but for the lasting quality and attention to detail. When a buyer hears “This is a Quality Home”, it is more than just a sales pitch. In fact, our homes have higher resale prices per square foot than similar homes in the market.

For over 25 years, we have offered more than 20 home designs that can be built as designed or customized to the individual’s specifications. Our homes are personally overseen by our attentive staff so that your details become our obsessions for quality.

For over 25 years, our homes have benefited from the latest in emerging technology to provide lasting value to our customers. This includes the energy-efficient and sustainable products which not only provide a better finished product, but save the homeowner money for decades to come. These savings also translate into higher resale value.

For over 25 years, we have worked with our customers who want to create a custom lifestyle with a custom home. We handle every detail from blueprints to finish. We work along-side the customer through the design, engineering, and construction phases, keeping the project on budget while never sacrificing any detail or cutting any corners.

For over 25 years, we have created a legacy that will continue for years to come. Quality Homes is committed to upholding the values of the past along with the technology for the future. Quality is more than a name; it is a commitment to your vision.
