Episode 15: 90 Years in Business

Hi there! Welcome to the “Ask Alexa” series. I’m Alexa Drees, the Design Center Director at Drees Homes, and I’m excited to bring you weekly tips, advice, and answers to your dilemmas, and this week we are going to share some exciting news about Drees Homes, we are celebrating our 90th Anniversary!

When it comes to building homes, experience says a lot. Our commitment to excellence runs four generations deep – we’ve been family owned and operated since 1928 starting with my great-grandfather. This is a major milestone for the Drees company and my family.

Over 90 years we have seen many design trends come and go, but there really are a few that have proven to stand the test of time:

1: Peoples desire to personalize their own home

Whether your style is classic or quirky, refined or casual, everyone has their own style and features they want to be included in their home.  This has never changed and it shouldn’t. Your home is a big part of your personality and we want you to be as comfortable as possible with each design decision that goes into your home. At Drees you can customize without compromise at the Drees Design Center to get exactly the home you want. We’ll work closely with you to create your ideas and vision and with our expert design consultants, we make a world of choices easy. 

2: Customers want to work with a home builder that’s constantly trendsetting

You want a home builder that is always looking for the next trend and staying up to date on the latest technology advancements in energy efficiency or home systems. And while Drees homes are inspired by our strong tradition of excellence in home building, every Drees home is also built around the future. We are constantly looking for the next things that can make each home better, more efficient, and more stylish. 

3: The kitchen remains the heart of the home

Which is why it is important to choose the design element you love most to use in your kitchen. Go with your style and what you fall in love with and it will make the space timeless!
