De Young Properties Thanks Community For Supporting Our Business For The First 40 Years

Established in 1974 and well into our third generation, De Young Properties continues a family legacy of helping families realize the American dream of home ownership. Building over 7,000 homes, the De Young name is synonymous with quality craftsmanship, enduring value, world-class innovation and excellent customer service.

We are sincerely grateful for our loyal homeowners. Our desire has been and always will be to ensure each one of our customers is satisfied with their De Young Properties home. Additionally, we are appreciative to our community and team of top professionals from the last 40 years. Thank you for working alongside our family as we continue the tradition of building quality crafted homes, a job in which we have a passion and do not take lightly.

De Young Properties was recently recognized with Proclamations from the County of Fresno, City of Fresno, City of Clovis and a Certificate of Recognition from the California State Legislature for achieving 40 years of business in the Central Valley. Additionally, we were also commended for building thousands of quality homes and for contributing time and resources to support the local community.

The first priority of De Young Properties is our commitment to homeowners, as demonstrated by our industry-leading, 5-Year Fit & Finish Warranty, the first of its kind in the area.

We have also placed ourselves at the forefront of our industry by being the first to offer and continuing to offer multiple homes designed to be Zero Net Electric. In addition, we collaborated with PG&E to take one giant step beyond Zero Net Electric to build the first Zero Net Energy Home in the area.

Our company’s vision defines and drives its direction and instills the corporate values that stress progress, industry leadership and above all, excellence. The last 40 years have been a success in part to our team at De Young Properties that are dedicated to working together in harmony with the environment, ensure accountability and commitment to customer service, earn the trust of the community and reflect the highest standards of quality craftsmanship and innovation in building technologies to meet the needs of the California lifestyle. Our team is extremely motivated, dedicated and knowledgeable and believes that the key to success is making our homeowners the first priority. De Young Properties takes homebuilding very seriously and this is evident by the support we provide to our customers and by standing behind our homes before, during and long after the sale to ensure homeowner satisfaction.

We have been recognized for our innovation, quality craftsmanship and excellent customer service in the form of various awards by top industry professionals, peers and the community.

De Young has been recognized as a People’s Choice Award recipient for New Homebuilder, an annual honor given to three businesses per category by the Fresno Bee based on votes received from the community for multiple years. We have also received three Gold Nugget Awards – the top honors given at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference. De Young was recognized as a Gold Nugget Award winner for “Best GreenPoint Rated Community” and has received two Gold Nuggets and an Award of Merit for “Net Zero Energy Home Design”. In addition to the awards listed above, we have been acknowledged for several other awards, as well.

De Young Properties extends beyond building homes. Our team shares a commitment to improving quality of life through supporting community groups by volunteering their time, treasure and resources. We contribute time and resources to our local community, including serving as proud builder and major donor of the Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home for the last eight years, raising over 7.6 million dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. De Young Properties was also the major builder and donor of a new home for a local hero on the Emmy-award winning ABC television show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Whether raising funds for children or supporting local schools, non-profits and community groups, De Young gives dreams and hope to our community.

The De Young family history in the Central Valley dates back six generations and we have been building homes for the last three. This generational experience means we are deeply rooted here, where we live, work and share a deep understanding and commitment to serve our community and strive to provide you with the very best, an innovative, quality-crafted EnergySmart™ home.

For the last 40 years and into the future, the De Young Properties’ family legacy is building the home of your dreams that your family will cherish for many years to come. That’s why we say… Building Your Dreams For Three Generations.
