What They Think Of Us

We signed on to work with Dan Atkins over a year ago & every step of the way he has proven to be a very competent and honest builder. He is a man of his word. We were able to make some custom changes to our floor plan (Mayfield Grand!) at no extra charge. And for those changes and extras that did cost more, all of his fees were totally reasonable. He doesn’t add additional mark-ups to things that other builders do like appliances and such. Dan took up many of his Saturday mornings to meet with us at the property and all along the building process.

There were a few hiccups along the way not under his control, but he worked to ensure that we got to closing before our interest rate lock expired! I am not easy to work with and am high maintenance, but Dan put up with me with a smile on his face. We are enjoying our new home built by Dan!

We recently had the pleasure of working with Atkins Homes to fulfill our long-time goal of building a home. Dan and his team were an absolute dream to work with. With all of the current market and supply issues, we truly weren’t expecting such a pleasant and timely experience! Dan was thorough, honest and personal throughout the entire process. His team did exceptional work down to the smallest details. The result was a beautiful, high-quality home of our dreams, and a great experience as well. We recommend Atkins Homes in the highest regards!

Love the house!  Dan was great to work with.  Would do it again!

Atkins Home Builders was extremely responsive on all items pertaining to my home building process. There have been a lot of challenging permit obstacles on my lot as we have an RPA (wetland protected) area. But Dan has been steadfast, persistent, and persevered on our behalf. I personally spoke with multiple homeowners that purchased a home built by Dan and each person was amazed with his craftsmanship and reiterated how wonderful it was to work with him. I have many construction contacts and every supplier or contractors who has worked with Dan only had glowing reviews. I personally walked through many homes that were under construction and even welcomed in by owners who had completed a build years ago. All his work is top notch and it’s clear he takes pride in his craft. I used to work for a big box builder so I’m very familiar with construction and I did a lot of research so I’m positive that anyone looking to build a custom home can rest assured that he is the real deal and the best in the home builder business. It’s clear to see from all reviews written by those of us who are actually working with or have already worked with this builder.

We LOVE our new house built by Atkins Homes! There are not enough words to express our gratitude to Dan Atkins. The quality and workmanship on his houses is amazing – there is not a thing that Dan hasn’t thought of and tweaked to perfection. He takes pride in his homes and it shows. The kindest and most honest man you could meet, Dan is easy to talk to and always available to answer questions. We would highly recommend Atkins Homes for your new home build.

James and Erin Driver

After being in our new home for 6 months, we are so blessed to have found Dan and his team at Atkins homes. The surpassing craftsmanship is evident throughout and couldn’t be more pleased with the finished product.  Friends and family rave about the “model home” he delivered to us.  This is the second home we have built and would never go back to a “big-box” builder again.  Dan’s attitude, fairness and personalization towards his craft and customer is refreshing in today’s world.  Thank you Atkins Homes!

Tom & Stacie Clator

We really love our new house!  From the layout, to the style, to the practicality of living in it – it fits our family’s style and we are VERY HAPPY with it!  Dan was very patient with us throughout the building process.

When my wife and I decided to retire in Northern Virginia, we spent over three years searching for the perfect location, property and builder.  After meeting with several realtors and builders, we still had not found someone that we felt could build us our dream home to our standards.  Finally, we connected with Realtor Dawn Arruda who helped us hone our search and introduced us to Dan Atkins.  We are so fortunate to have met them and instantly felt that we had finally found the right team to build our home.

We toured a model home build by Atkins Homes and immediately knew we were in the right hands.  As a trained carpenter, I am extremely detail-oriented and have high expectations when it comes to construction quality.  The model home was incredibly well built and offered all of the extra details and customization we had spent three years searching for.

Dan build us our dream retirement home, all while we were still living on the West Coast. He regularly provided photos and videos to update us on our home’s progress and was available any time to answer any questions we had.  His customer services went above and beyond anything we could have imagined. The construction was executed flawlessly, and we are so pleased with our new home.  If you are looking for an excellent caliber builder with outstanding customer service, look no further than Atkins Homes!

Teresa and David Walker

Dan builds beautiful homes and takes a lot of care in the quality of his custom construction projects. He has a keen attention to detail and tries to make everything perfect, move-in ready and up to customer’s standards.  We are grateful for his diligence and he is a pleasure to buy a home from.

Aston and David Scott

Dan Atkins welcomed us to the house he was building in Amissville with open arms. We trusted him right away and quickly decided to work with him to build our new dream home.  Dan kept us up to date on the whole process.  He was flexible with all of our requests and he was always accessible.  The quality of his construction is incomparable – no other builder is like him. He uses quality materials and builds sturdy homes. We recommend Dan Atkins to anyone we know looking to build a home.  He is top notch in every way.

Art and Sharon Mellon

Danny Atkins was recommended to us by friends and when we looked at his options for homes he had just what we were looking for.  We had never been involved in building a house before and had only heard what a nightmare it would be.  However, Danny was a true professional.  His emphasis was on quality and he was personally involved in the project on a daily basis, ensuring it stayed on schedule.  He provided his expertise and guidance, yet listened to what we wanted.  He made the process easy and enjoyable. Even after the sale, he has continued to ensure we are happy in our home.  We highly recommend Danny!

Jason Manyx and Alice Downie

I had been in the market for a new home for 2 months and during that time I looked at dozens of properties.  It wasn’t until I viewed an Atkins Home that I found the perfect home for me! It was clear from the beginning that Dan takes pride in his work and never settles for anything less than the best.  The level of craftsmanship in his homes is amazing and more importantly working with Dan is an absolute pleasure.  He’s always quick to answer question and has gone above and beyond repeatedly when handling any requests from me.  If you’re in the market for new home, you can’t do better than Atkins.

Thank you Dan!!

Our real estate agent introduced us to Dan Atkins and Dawn Arruda in December of 2016.  Dan owned property at the corner of Priest Lane and Holly Springs Road in Amissville, VA.  We like the lot and were interested in having a custom home built on that lot.  Dan and dawn were both very accommodating during the contract negotiations. Dan’s answer for any question regarding an adjustment to his standard design was an instant “yes”.  We entered the contract at the end of January, 2017.  It took about a month for the county to process the permits but once received the work began… in earnest.  The hole was dug, the foundation poured, the frame was up and the roof was on in about 45 days.  We moved into a very well designed and constructed home in late June.  Dan is very accommodating, he builds a high-quality home for a reasonable price, and is very honest throughout the entire transaction.  All in all, our experience with Atkins Homes was very positive.

Stephen and Tracy Agrati

Dan made building our new home a pleasant experience.  He was very responsive to emails, text and phone calls. He made it easy to make the changes that we wanted during the building process. We were able to walk the construction site at any time, which was important to us to see the grogress and enjoy seeing our new home come to life.  He broke ground on our location in April, 2017 and delivered our beautiful new home in August 2017.

Matthew Taylor and Robyn Boyd

Dan Atkins built our home in Amissville, VA.  Construction started in November 2015 and was completed on time in April 2016. After talking to several local builders, we knew that Dan was the right builder for us.  Once we met with Dan and toured his completed projects, we could see his superior quality workmanship and attention to detail. We knew that we could trust Dan to deliver on his commitments. This was especially important because we lived in Ohio throughout construction. People are still amazed that we had a home built and were not present during construction. We are truly grateful to Dan and his team for making our dream come true.

Connie and Donny Corwin

Our relationship with Danny Atkins and Atkins Homes began in December 2016. We liked his work and in talking to folks found that his reputation for honesty was impeccable and quality of home construction and materials were well beyond that of larger builders. He began the construction of our Brookfield Model home on March 24, 2017.  He completed the home in August 2017 and we had an occupancy permit in early September.

Danny’s patience with our process was incredible. While the standard Brookfield model met 85% of our expectations, and we did make several modifications to the standard plan and materials. He sent us progress emails and pictures throughout the build.  He was quick to respond to our phone calls, texts, and emails and worked with us to detail and plan changes.  We found Danny’s contracting team professional and just as attentive as Danny was (and still is) to our needs.

The result is beautiful. Our custom home has met every expectation.  We moved in November 2017 and Danny continues to respond to our questions and has attended to the few minor kinks that are a pat of any build.  We can attest to the fact that the building process is what you make of it.  We were very involved in the process to understand the details and manage the costs.  Danny ensures that the costs and standard build selections are stated clearly up front, no surprises and coordinated with the owner.  What a great experience.

Bob & Liz Capitan

Dave and I couldn’t be more pleased with our home. We purchased it in May of 2015. Dan and his team have always been courteous, helpful and dependable.  If ever Dave had a question for Dan, he was a phone call away. Dan goes above and beyond everyone’s expectations. His attention to detail and craftsmanship is very impressive.  Our home is very well constructed and we fell in love with the floor plan. The openness and size of the rooms were exactly what were looking for.

If we should ever move and needed a builder, Dan would be the man.  Dawn would be our Realtor, for sure! Both are so accomadating and such a great team!
