Harris Doyle Homes® (Harris Doyle), a Berkshire Hathaway company and subsidiary of Clayton Properties Group®, announced it has acquired Dilworth Homes (Dilworth), a top builder and developer in Auburn and Baldwin County. The acquisition became effective on January 4, 2021, and will make Harris Doyle one of the largest residential new home builders in Alabama.
Dilworth will continue to operate under the Dilworth Homes brand name in their current communities, with Michael Dilworth, owner, overseeing those operations. Russ Doyle will maintain his role as president of Harris Doyle and co-founder Brooks Harris will also continue as chief business development officer. The addition of Dilworth will allow Harris Doyle to expand its footprint in Auburn as well as provide it entry into the Baldwin County market.
“We are proud to welcome Dilworth to the Harris Doyle family,” Brooks Harris said. “I know it’s going to be a great fit. From early conversations, it was clear that both companies share very similar core values, cultural alignment and thrive off a team mindset to provide high-level service to our customers.”
Michael Dilworth launched Dilworth Homes in 1999. Dilworth currently builds in seven communities in Auburn and four communities in Baldwin County. Harris Doyle currently has 12 communities across Birmingham, Auburn, Pike Road and Lake Martin.
“We are excited and grateful for the opportunity to partner with Harris Doyle and join Clayton Properties Group,” Michael Dilworth said. “Joining forces with Harris Doyle just makes sense as we are all working toward common goals: to provide a first-class homebuilding experience for our customers and to provide extraordinary resources and opportunities for our team members to grow and develop, both of which will be enhanced through this partnership.”
Dilworth is widely known for its commitment to quality, outstanding team culture, integrity and customer satisfaction. Customers should continue to expect the same from the union of Dilworth and Harris Doyle.
“Michael’s success as a residential builder is an impressive testament to his passion, talent and work ethic. He has developed an outstanding team that builds well-crafted homes,” Russ Doyle said. “We could not be more excited about the future and the opportunities this will bring our customers and team members.”
