As a private boutique home builder, Davidson Communities offers potential buyers the most valuable commodity you can give to someone building a new home; the ability to make choices. Since 1978 Davidson Communities has been providing homeowners with the flexibility to put their personal signature on the home of their dreams. From flooring and moulding, to cabinetry, electrical and lighting, Davidson offers up a world of possibilities allowing people to express themselves by way of home design.

“Construction is a big part of the business of course, but romance is born in the details… bathtubs, roof tiles, fireplaces, plumbing fixtures… the proportion of windows and doors and the stair railing. I also honor tradition. My grandfather’s influence resides deeply in my soul, yet I believe it is our responsibility as builders to take the best of the past and combine it with today’s technological innovations. Human beings evolve and so must the dwellings we inhabit.” - Bill Davidson, President

Homeowner Reviews

We love our new Davidson home. We have purchased other new homes and the Davidson product is a step above. The design details are all very well thought out and executed. The customer service is outstanding. When I needed a special modification to the installation of my kitchen hood because I am 6’6” tall, Davidsons COO came out personally to work with me and the superintendent to solve the design issues and make it happen for me. It came out beautifully.
— Steve, New Crest Court
… Davidson thought of every detail and the workmanship is outstanding. From our open floor plan and entryway, to a sprinkler system in every room- no detail was spared. We have been thrilled with our Davidson experience and have recommended our neighborhood to many of our friends. We would purchase a Davidson home again in a heartbeat.
— Bryan and Jennifer, Arterro Homeowner
I purchased my Davidson home about 8 months ago and I absolutely love it…Also, the home is well built and absolutely beautiful. The floor plans are open and inviting… If we ever move, we will buy another Davidson home.
— Chelsey, Arterro Homeowner
We are so happy to be moved into our beautiful new home and we look forward to spending many years here. .. Davidson was an unknown to us prior to our “stumbling” upon Arterro and we feel fortunate to have found a builder with such a strong focus on both customer service and home quality.
— Gregg & Theresa, Arterro Homeowner
I can remember Bill coming up to the house when it was being built and saying, “see that wall over there, we’re going to change it. I don’t like it.” He subsequently had the wall changed to accommodate the courtyard, separating it from the other outdoor living space. “Bill is a visionary. What he did changed the entire scheme of what would become our back garden.” From the mouldings, to the beams to the over-the-top floors, this home, like the pine floors, will continue to grow better with time. Collect things you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story…
— Pat Hasbrook, Kensington Del Sur Homeowner
My wife and I recently purchased a home from your organization at the Arista development at The Crosby. Our experience in working with your team has been so remarkably unique, positive and unexpected that we felt compelled to tell you just how very pleased we’ve been with the entire experience.

We could not be happier in our new home and we appreciate your phenomenal attention to detail and yeoman efforts to make a production home architecturally interesting and engaging – as well as constructing it with superior materials and craftsmanship. All the small details were not lost on us – in fact, they helped you stand head and shoulders above the competition when we were deciding from whom to purchase a new home.

You do, indeed, build a great house.
— G & S, Arista Homeowner
First I would like to congratulate Arista at The Crosby for receiving the prestigious award of “Best New Community of the Year”, although I am not surprised. As a new homeowner in this community, I was very pleased at how gracious and helpful the staff and builders were in assisting me with the construction and move into my beautiful new home. I would like to give special recognition to your staff. I appreciate their patience, generosity and all of their great efforts in making me feel right at home. My transition into my new home would not have gone so smoothly if it wasn’t for these outstanding individuals.
— Faye , M.D. , Arista Homeowner
My wife and I love our new home, and are very grateful to Davidson for building such a wonderful product, and it is easy to understand why Davidson has such a stellar reputation for quality and design. I have recommended Davidson to a number of friends because I am confident that quality and service will be as evident to those close to me as it was to us.
— Nigel & Sherri, Arista Homeowner
We have been impressed with our Davidson home for so many reasons: the quality of the cabinets, fixtures and appliances, the attention to design detail and the responsiveness of the sales, construction and customer service staff. Everyone takes such pride in their work, even after the sale.
— Anne & Lance, Arista Homeowner
We have been impressed by the craftsmanship of the builder, Davidson. There are wonderful details that add so much to the overall look and feel of the home.
— Pete and Merlene
Davidson has so many quality details that are included; in other developments we looked at, these details were all upgrades at additional cost. The floor plan is excellent, well thought-out with great outdoor spaces.
— Bruce and Holly
We are continually impressed by the individuality and innovation in Davidson’s designs and amenities. It was all about the small touches that made a huge difference.
— Charlie and Staci
We bought the home because of Davidson’s reputation, the value of the property compared with other neighborhoods.
— JoAnne and Ken
Coming from the Northeast, we love the design of these homes; especially the private courtyards!
— Kent and Lynnette
The two primary factors in choosing Viridian was the quality & layouts of the home compared to price and the ability for our children to attend the Carlsbad Schools. We have been in our new home for a year now, and the neighborhood has some great people moving in;we’re glad we chose Viridian.
— Niren and Anita
What impressed us about Viridian was the quality of the Davidson homes relative to other new homes we had seen in the area. Having the experience of moving a few times before, we felt confident that we were making the right home choice as well as a sound investment.
— Ralph and Debbie
We are extremely excited to have purchased our home and are looking forward to moving in very soon. We love the layout of the home, the huge kitchen, the cul de sac location, the quality andreputation of the builder and the friendly neighbors.
— Brian and Nancy
The construction quality, the appliances, the granite counter tops and marble floors are exceptional! We also based our decision on the reports we heard regarding the integrity of Davidson Communities and their excellent customer service. We have not been disappointed!
