About David Wilson Homes
David Wilson Homes is not just a housing developer, we're a company that builds homes. At every stage of the process; from designing and planning to the final finishing touches, we keep in mind the emotional and practical priorities of the people who will be living in our properties.
This customer-centric approach has been at the root of our success for over forty years. We began in a small village in Leicester and today are recognised as one of the country's leading house builders, operating in thirteen regions, from Scotland to Wales and down to the South East of England. All our regions are supported by an extensive customer service team to guide buyers through what, in most cases, is the biggest financial commitment they will ever make.
As part of the Wilson Bowden Group, we established our reputation through the building of large executive properties but today our uncompromising pursuit of excellence extends into a wider portfolio of homes including apartments and townhouses.
At the heart of our company lies the Wilson Way, an attitude which demands all our people, whether they be land buyers, site managers or marketing staff, deliver their very best at all stages of the business. We believe detail is everything and consequently our team takes time to source materials of the highest standard to fashion homes of unparalleled quality.
