Testimonials

We are honored when any customer shares their satisfaction with their new home.

“So Thrilled. Seven months ago, my wife and I decided we would move closer to my work to reduce my commute and maximize our savings heading toward retirement. Since I work in Norfolk, we decided to live there as well. It wasn’t long before we visited a beautiful home for sale barely 5 miles from work. The house, a two-story Oakdale model, just seemed to have everything we wanted: open floor plan, 2-car garage, granite, custom cabinets, security system, fenced, crown molding, the list of standard amenities goes on. Problem was, our bid for the home came in too late behind some competition from others. We went out of our way to voice our disappointment over missing out on such an awesome find.

A day later, we were contacted by the owner of DSF Development, Mr. Feinman, and the head of his real estate staff for Affordable New Construction, Kelly Holloman, of Rose and Womble. We raved about the new home we missed so much, Mr. Feinman committed to finding a property and working with us to build our perfect home. Little did we know, the property would be on the next block."

"Along the way we’ve worked surprisingly close with everyone from company ownership, to building supervisor, electrical and plumbing sub-contractors, cabinet and carpentry artisans, and a fabulous team of real estate and mortgage financing agents. All of these professionals were eager to answer our questions and then willing to discuss our personal desires for possible style changes. My wife and I were impressed with how quickly the team researched our wishes and provided sensibly priced solutions to determine what fit our budget. That process served to provide us a custom ceramic shower in the master bedroom, an over-size patio for entertaining and more choices for heating and cooling. Today, our neighbors and friends are so impressed with the upscale standard features of our new house. For my wife and I, we‘re so thrilled to call our beautiful, custom built house, “our home!” Thanks Team!"

“We were looking to relocate in the same area and found a great newly constructed house in Ocean View that had everything we were looking for and more in one complete package. The way each room compliments the entire living quarters is very well thought out and planned for years of future enjoyment. Basically, the house was plug and play, which as a military family was very convenient. The support and attention before, during and after the sale was truly surprising. The DSF crew was very knowledgeable and flexible and guided us thru every feature of the house and even made some of our last minute requests a reality. Our neighborhood is continuing to improve with more of their houses being built and I would recommend them highly to anyone who is looking for a good, honest home. In fact, work with them early and you can truly be in the process of making your dream home a reality!"

“As a first time homeowner, buying your new home is a lot to deal with, but DSF Development has been there every step of the way. If I had any kind of issues or concerns they were very prompt in answering my questions. They honor their home warranty, build beautiful homes and give a lot of guidance from purchase to closing to owning. They have a good team and I would recommend any one to DSF Development.”
~ Eajen Ahmed


“I have had my home by DSF for almost 2 years now and it was the best investment of my life! Any problems I have had with my home were quickly resolved in a timely manner. You’re going to have growing pains with any new development, but the warranty couldn’t be beat and the communication was great! My home fits me, my personality and my family.”
~ Elgin Sanders


“My wife and I probably looked at 15 houses in Norfolk, Chesapeake and Suffolk. Staying in Norfolk gave us more bang for our buck, so we narrowed it down to three houses all made by different builders. The DSF house stood out over the other two. The attention to detail was the biggest selling point. It appeared that it was put together well and the fit and finish was well thought out and executed. After we made our choice we hired an inspector of our own and he confirmed, not only did it appear to be built well, it in fact was! He went on to say that this was one of the best new construction builds that he has seen. During this process, and having an agent of my own, I had numerous conversations with the Listing Agent and Bobby (owner). Every encounter was great. They made sure that every detail was handled and every promise made, verbally or listed in writing, was fulfilled. In business, you can’t ask for more than that. My wife and I are pleased with our decision. I would refer and recommend this team to my friends and family that are looking for a new home.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with DSF Development on multiple deals over my past 6 years in real estate and I must say, without a doubt that they consistently have shown themselves to be a step above the rest. The construction, attention to detail and sheer curb appeal of the homes that they build are bar none. DSF Development has taken the initiative to tackle the entry level buyer’s market and offer them the “must haves” that they insist on having in a single-family home product, with many upgrades and finishes that are expected to be found in high-end home purchases. DSF Development’s staff has been diligent, time and time again, in listening to and working alongside my clients to make sure their wishes and expectations are met. The quality, price and overall “wow factor” of these homes consistently have me and my clients in awe. This has earned them their place as my “go to builder” for affordable new construction for the most discerning clients.”

“I absolutely love my house! I’ve owned it for a year and a half and very few things have gone wrong. It’s very well made and everything is upgraded. The doors have special trim, there is crown molding, better quality ceiling fans, sod in the front, fixtures and under-cabinet lighting...the list goes on and on. I had the opportunity to select all colors on the outside of the house, the style of home and flooring, cabinets and granite. DSF went above and beyond to really make the house mine and suit my needs. I would do the entire (building/buying) process with DSF again in a heartbeat. I am so satisfied with the quality of my home and appearance. Everyone that comes over can’t help but tell me how homey and beautiful my house is. I recommend DSF to anyone looking because living in this home every day is a blessing!”
