Dragas Difference

Local, Woman-Owned Builder With Roots That Run Deep

The Dragas Companies has been family-owned and operated since its conception in 1968 when George Dragas established Dragas Mortgage Company to help local families experience the pride of homeownership. Seeing people achieve the American dream of owning their own homes led naturally to a partnership with his brother Mark to develop and build homes in Hampton Roads. The groundbreaking of the first Dragas development in 1978 kickstarted a commitment to not simply build homes, but to build neighborhoods of enduring beauty.

The Dragas Companies' name quickly became synonymous with integrity and quality. Since then, we have helped more than 8,000 families realize the lifestyle they always wanted. With more than 60 thoughtfully designed communities that feature beautifully crafted homes, and offer exclusive amenities and services, our communities are designed to offer a true sense of place where families and individuals come together.

As its second-generation leader, Helen Dragas has advanced her father’s original intentions of helping families experience the pride of homeownership with a focus on innovation and customer service. Our commitment to our homebuyers and our community is a deeply ingrained aspect of our company culture, and we are proud to continue George Dragas’ vision for The Dragas Companies.

The Dragas Difference

Expertly Crafted

Our homes stand as a testament to exceptional craftsmanship, each with a distinct design that sets them apart. You will feel the unique architectural elegance of a Dragas home as soon as you walk in the door, with floorplans that showcase large windows and nine-foot ceilings. Large walk-in closets provide ample storage space and custom built-in shelving that adds a touch of luxury. Sustainability and efficiency lie at the heart of our approach, contributing to a greener and more cost-effective lifestyle. Each detail is professionally curated, a masterpiece of thoughtful design, quality, and comfort.
