Mike Duke and team have been building custom homes and developing communities for over 30 years. As a man of deep faith and purpose, Duke knows the awards, accolades, and success will eventually turn to dust someday -- and what really matters is making a lasting impact.
This is most evident in Duke’s latest endeavor. It is Mike’s hope that Aberdeen will cultivate in residents a stronger connection to people & nature, as well as encourage a more active lifestyle. All this to point residents towards something greater than themselves.
Duke has always made it a goal to do the best in everything he does, always striving towards excellence. When it comes to developing land, this desire stems both from his faith and his heritage. John Duke, Mike’s great great great great grandfather settled in the nearby area after the revolutionary war where the family has been farming ever since. With this long connection to the area and a family history of working with the land, it is even more so important to Mike that the land is developed the right way, with sustainability, excellence, and master plans in mind. It means a great deal to him. And he believes the site will end up being special to many others as well.
While Mike Duke is the developer of Aberdeen, he is also the head of Duke Homes, an award-winning custom home design-builder. Since 1986, Duke has developed several neighborhoods and built hundreds of homes. Duke Homes was built on a lasting principal- Many Promise. We Deliver. This commitment has led to longevity in an industry riddled with unfulfilled expectations. With Duke Homes, residents of our neighborhoods and homes are family. Just the way we like it.

Duke Homes, Inc. completed a beautiful new home for our family last fall. Mike Duke and his team are absolute experts in the custom home business and were able to answer all of our questions and create smart, beautiful solutions that fit our lifestyle. Management is hands on and involved in every step of the process. In addition to our home, Duke Homes completed a large barn on the property, and revamped all of the landscaping! You name it, they can do it! We couldn't have asked for a better partner to help us design and build our family's dream home. Thank you, Duke Homes!
We were recommended to Mike through a friend of ours when we started our search for building our home. From our very first meeting with him, we knew it would be a good partnership. Mike is very personal, genuine and kind. He got exactly what we were wanting and even had the perfect piece of property that we were able to get.
The process of drawing up plans was quite fun. We told them everything we wanted and showed them exteriors that we loved in terms of style and they truly did an incredible job of giving us exactly what we envisioned.
I will be honest in saying that in terms of price it was higher than we expected but you can't get better quality than you do with Duke Homes so we were okay paying a bit higher because of the service we knew we would get.
When Mike gave us our General Contractor, Kevin, we were excited to start the process with him. Kevin was incredible to work with from the very beginning. He always made us feel incredibly important and like we were his only clients he was working with. He was quick to return calls and always checked in on the site almost daily. I honestly can't remember a day that he didn't stop by the site. He is very thorough and knows what he is talking about. He walked us through potential issues and always had a solution for them. He made our process so enjoyable and at the end of our building, he was like family to us.
We highly recommend Duke Homes if you are looking for great quality and great customer service. They truly are one of a kind!
I cannot say enough good things about my experience building with Duke Homes. My wife and I saw integrity lived out during each meeting and throughout the entire building process. With Duke Homes, we knew we weren’t receiving tips and recommendations that would artificially drive up the cost of our home. We also never receive a less than full effort from the sub-contractors who came to our home. And most importantly, the end product was beautiful and full of quality touches around every corner. If I could do it all over again, I would call Duke Homes in a heartbeat. They provided us with peace of mind throughout the entire process, and our home is precisely what we hoped it would be. When Duke Homes says ‘Many Promise. We Deliver.’ they mean it.
