About Michael Dilworth

Michael Dilworth’s passion for crafting custom commercial and residential buildings is evident not only in the impressive physical structures themselves, but among the hundreds of happy customers that call his buildings home.

Growing up around Mountain Brook, Alabama’s stunning Southern architecture served as an inspiration for Dilworth, though he never realized then that building would one day become a career.

Dilworth followed his high school sweetheart and now wife of 16 years, Brooke, to attend Auburn University in 1998. While pursuing a degree in building science, Dilworth realized his calling for residential construction at age 19 after he built his first home to sell the summer before his sophomore year at Auburn University. His reputation as a talented and accomplished young builder grew from there, as Dilworth constructed and sold two custom homes before earning his building science degree.

Having launched Dilworth Development as a college student, the company has since built upward of 1,000 homes in the past 20 years. Dilworth wants to give back to the Auburn community by building modern but timeless homes that will be admired for generations to come. With a talent for determining his clients’ wants and needs, Dilworth and his team develop on gorgeous lots boasting homes with spacious luxury, creative charm and Southern style.

Dilworth Development, Inc.

After a few summers spent framing homes as a teenager, Michael knew he wanted to build homes for a living and established Dilworth Development, Inc in 1999. At the age of 19, Michael took his summer break from Auburn University’s Building Science program to start Dilworth Development, Inc.’s first spec home.

With a desire to build a perfect home, Michael poured all of his passion into the spec home and it sold as soon as it was completed. The experience proved to Michael that he was truly in his element. Inspired by his clients’ happiness, Michael quickly started making plans for his second project. The mission was to recreate something similar in nature to his first spec home, but to do it better.

Now, over 1,000 homes later, Dilworth Development, Inc.’s team has grown, but the mission still stands “…do it better!”

Today, Dilworth Homes is building in 17 communities across Auburn, Baldwin County, Huntsville, Opelika, and Madison. We have a variety of lots and exciting floor plans at every location to meet the needs of potential buyers. Further, we have expanded our staff in recent years to help us become more efficient while continuing to give that personal touch to every family. Our name is our quality and we pursue our original goal of being the “builder of choice” just as strongly today as we did when Michael started this journey 20 years ago.

Roger Staubach once said, “there are no traffic jams along the extra mile.” As we look into the horizon, we hope to continue to build dream homes for our clients both in Auburn and possibly other parts of the Southeast. While growth is a good thing, we will never put quantity ahead of quality. This company has been blessed with success over the years in part because every project starts with one theme in mind: build it with quality. Quality will always be our objective both in our past, our present, and into our future.
