Our story

As a family-owned and operated business, Horizon Homes of Wilmington has one main mission in mind: to design homes that suit homeowners’ individual needs and lifestyles with quality materials at an affordable price.

Working as a team, Robin Hackney tailors every new home’s design and construction to fulfill each homeowner’s “Wish List” while Deans Hackney is in charge of the land development side of the business. Providing quality, energy efficient, custom homes designed around the individual wants and needs of their customers with an emphasis on top-notch customer service, is what sets Horizon Homes apart.

Local & green

Robin is a Green Certified Professional with the National Association of Home Builders, and every home is designed with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind. This means working with trade partners to offer customers quality energy efficient and environmentally friendly options. Horizon tries to choose products found locally or semi-locally to support other Cape Fear businesses and the local economy. Plus, more than 75 percent of their materials are American made, some of which come from North Carolina. All materials are durable with style-driven accents, which create a lasting quality for homeowners.

Customized efficiency

Horizon Homes’ floor plans are customizable and energy efficient. Robin meets with every customer to design their home to suit their needs and lifestyle. Offering standard amenities like double garages, screened porches, custom state-of- the-art kitchens, hardwood flooring, and granite countertops are just a few of the “upgrades” Horizon considers as standard. With their “It’s Included” mindset, all homes have 9-10 foot first-floor ceilings with crown molding, 42-inch kitchen wall cabinets, plus an upgraded energy efficient 15 SEER heating and air-conditioning system. To add to the energy efficiency of the home, radiant barrier roof decking and blown cellulose insulation in the walls are also standard features.

Your Wishlist

Interested buyers can get started with customization right away on the Horizon Homes website, where they can compose their new home Wish List and submit it directly to Robin. The “Wish List” is the starting place for every Horizon Homes build. Robin customizes the designs to meet the customers’ needs and budget. Horizon Homes’ interior designer works with each customer during the selection stage to make their house a home.

Our philosophy

“Our philosophy is to give the customer exactly what we would want in our own home,” says Robin. “Every customer deals directly with us during the entire process from home design, selections and construction. Our ‘it’s included’ philosophy makes it easier for our customers to see exactly what they will have in their home for the price.”
