Customer Reviews

“We had lived in Pickerington for many years before we decided to have a home built by Donley Homes. We knew they had a good reputation and after working with them we were not disappointed.  Everyone on the Donley team was very helpful and knowledgeable.  The homes are very well built with many extras included not found in many other builders’ base houses. The upgrade options available are very extensive.  They were also very flexible in listening to some of our needs and including them in the design.   Overall we are very happy with the process and the results!”

“We love our new home.  We went into contract with another builder in August of 2018.  After many broken commitment dates, we decided enough was enough.   We had already sold our home and were in need of moving into our new home within 6 weeks.  On our last meeting with the supervisor (with the other builder), he informed us our home would not be completed as promised and we would need to put our dog in a boarding kennel and move in with our daughter until it was completed.    That was the straw that broke the camel’s back.   I called my realtor and said… No more! 

 That all took place on Friday and on Sunday we were going thru a Donley home.  They had a Spec home that was due to be completed within 4-5 weeks.    To our amazement, the new home was almost exactly like the one we were having built.  The Donley Home actually offered more upgrades.  The other builder released us from our contract and refunded our money.  We went into contract with Donley on that Monday and were closed 1 week before we had to turn over the keys to our old home. 

 They made this transition so smooth.  Every detail was taken care, any issues we had were dealt with (we really didn’t have any).   The home is so well constructed and you can tell that Donley takes great pride in the homes they build.  The personal attention given before and after closing is more than I could have hoped for.   I have told so many of my family and friends about Donley and highly recommend them.  They have not disappointed.”

“We began our search for a new home with two objectives; working with a quality builder who used top materials and provided upgraded features. In addition, we wanted to find a beautiful community with neighbors who cared about their homes and the community. After several months of researching builders and communities all over central Ohio, we concluded that Donley offered the least cumbersome, most transparent process to customizing, and building our new home. The experience from start to finish was enhanced by access to Co-Construct, which is the online tool that allowed us to track the progress of construction, make selections, and to chat with the pertinent staff.

Sherri, Bob, and Laura were a pleasure to work with as they are true experts on every aspect associated with deciding to purchase to closing on one’s new home. Mike Donley was just as approachable and he was committed to our complete satisfaction. We love our new home and the community!”

“Our experience with Donley Homes was superb from start to finish. In the beginning, Sherri worked very closely with us to help us “build” our house with all the features we wanted. Even though Donley Homes standard feature list is extensive, Sherri was able to provide us even more options when requested. The pricing of everything was fair and provided a great deal of added value. When we met with the owner, Mike, for the build discussion, we felt very good that everything would go smoothly. Our confidence was high even though we were living out of state at the time and wouldn’t be available to monitor things. Mike was even amenable to timing the construction to fit our move window, which we very much appreciated. The building supervisor, Bob, was also fantastic and he kept us well informed as the house was built. He even went above and beyond in helping us to install a dehumidifier after the home was done but before we arrived. We’ve lived in the home for nearly a year now and it has been fantastic – really no issues at all (which we certainly can’t say for prior new builds we’ve had elsewhere). Even more important, the neighborhood, Meadowmoore, is a great place to live and raise our daughter. It is truly a community with friendly and caring neighbors. We very highly recommend Donley Homes to anyone looking to live in the Pickerington area. Mike, Sherri, Bob and the rest of their team are the best and they truly provide a great home.”
