Drees Custom Homes
The historic tale of Drees Homes begins in 1928 with the personal struggles of a German immigrant who traveled across the Atlantic with visions of a better life inAmerica. Theodore Drees was a slight man with huge aspirations. Each morning, he would pull on his tall rubber boots, grab his black metal lunch pail and tackle the day with a strong work ethic and relentless, single-minded dedication to the American Dream.
Theodore Drees soon began constructing his first home in 1928 and today, a little house in Wilder,Kentuckystands in tribute to craftsmanship that endures. Theodore’s son, Ralph, joined the business in 1959 after serving his country in the Army. It was Ralph’s philosophy of diversification and industry leadership that took the company into new markets.
From those humble beginnings, Drees Homes now celebrates 80 years in business and is the nation’s 27th largest homebuilder. Under the leadership of David Drees, a third generation descendant of the company’s founder, Drees Homes continues to flourish. “Theodore lived by the old adage that ‘any job worth doing, is worth doing well’,” said David Drees, President and CEO. “That commitment to excellence continues to be our driving force today. Our vision of creating better homes and better communities is dependent on a focused approach that begins and ends with quality, personalization and customer service.”
Drees is proud to have been recently named, “2008America’s Best Builder” by Builder Magazine – an honor based on operational stability, excellence in design and construction, customer satisfaction and community service.
