our story

The Blueprint for Something Special

it’s personal to us.

In 2003, Tom Dillard launched his company as a small, family-owned and operated luxury, custom home builder. A Clemson University graduate with a degree in mechanical engineering, Tom brought his knowledge of construction, management, business leadership, and community involvement to the table. Inspired by a love for extraordinary beauty, defined by sophisticated style, and anchored with uncompromising quality and attention to detail, Tom’s desire was to distance the company from the status quo in the market. He refused to be defined as just another luxury builder.

A void existed among luxury home builders and their clients. These builders were more focused on profits than people. This is why we built our company with a “client-first” focus.

Our approach was simple—to build relationships and friendships with our clients first so that we could better understand them and, ultimately, build their ideal dream home.

Today, we’ve taken it a step further and dedicated resources and a team to providing a plethora of home services to clients after the build was over. It has become our Lifelong Service Commitment which comes standard with every home.

You’ll know a Dillard-Jones home when you see it. Otherwise, we wouldn’t put our signature on it.

That’s our legacy.

personalized. luxury.

Crafting a home is a balance of both art and science. It’s about more than just architectural plans, home specs, and luxury materials. Your home is the ultimate expression of who you are.

It requires empathy, emotion and a certain level of intuition to truly build something unique. Because of this, the process is very personal and intimate.

For nearly 20 years our family has grown to include some of the most talented architects, designers, and building professionals. We’ve never lost the personal connection with our clients. Our singular purpose remains—to create a vision of home without compromise. Our commitment to excellence is not only raising the standard among other luxury builders. It IS the standard.

Distinguished Living For Discerning Tastes.

Our homes are a mark of distinction. By definition, our home designs are unique, one of a kind—something you do not see in every home you enter. Every home we build is truly custom and not just an alteration of a design or plan we’ve built previously. We consider each room a “living” space that reflects the desires and character of its owner and we treat it as such. We are as meticulous as we are creative and it shows in the end result.
