Alan & Donna"We are very pleased with Hagood Homes. They offer a lot of great coastal plans, a simple selection process with plenty of choices and a staff that goes above and beyond. They are delivering quality construction and energy efficient features in their homes....excellent value for our retirement home investment dollars. Our home is currently under construction and we enjoy seeing the weekly progress pictures remotely. Highly recommend Hagood Homes!"
Ann & Jess Gatlin"We purchased a home from Hagood Homes. Josh was our initial contact. Responsive, knowledgeable, and quick to answer our questions. He explained the process and ensured we were taken care of by all of the people we met throughout the entire process. From choosing a model, to making selections, to the actual build. We always felt we were dealing with people who cared about us, our home, and providing excellent customer service."

Deanna Brown-Johnson"We've now owned two homes built by Hagood! From beginning to end, the process was easy, the team was professional and everyone was helpful and amazing. From floor plan to interior design and construction, they have made sure we were happy with every detail. Josh, Patrick, and Mike as well as everyone on the Hagood team goes above and beyond. We love our home. Everything is beautiful!"
Doris Connell"Just moved in to our new Hagood Homes Cape Lookout in Compass Pointe! We've been here 1 week and the house is fantastic. We spent a good bit of time trying to decide on a builder and ultimately were trying to decide between Kent Homes and Hagood Homes. The sales associates at both builders were very helpful and knowledgeable. Josh with Hagood was exceptionally responsive, friendly, and easy to work with. We chose Hagood for several reasons. First, they are the only builder in CP who use the spray foam insulation as a standard offering. Other builders seemed a bit reluctant to do it even as an upgrade. My husband was a believer from the start but now that we are in the home, the "energy wrap" works really well. I'm a convert! Second, the included features of the home were items that would have been an upgrade with other builders (e.g., three course foundation rather than 2 so the house sits higher up, 8 ft interior door height, larger windows than standard, elegant interior trim, among other items). Third, the floor-plan was exactly what we were looking for and we did not need to do any customization. Josh told us that the Cape Lookout was created based on customer feedback and essentially is a tweak of one of their other floor-plans. This speaks to the fact that they listen to their customers. Finally, most other builders offer several elevations for each floor plan; and the nicer elevations are considered upgrades. With Hagood there is one elevation (they offer the nicest one and call it a day), the one that you see in the model/floor plan. Although you can customize, I liked the fact that I was getting what I was seeing. I don't like to be nickel and dimed so this was a huge factor for me.
Once the decision was made to go with Hagood, things moved pretty quickly with selections, which was a 3 day process. Everyone was very helpful. There was absolutely no pressure to upgrade anything. We felt like we drove the process. From ground breaking to closing was approximately 6-7 months. Throughout the process, everyone was very responsive. We were "monitoring" the build from out of state, so the Buildertrend app that they use is very helpful. The Project Manager uploads pictures along the way so you can follow the progress from afar.
Finally, I do want to speak to the quality. The house is well built and the 2 things I've noticed so far is that it is very quiet inside (good windows and insulation) and with it being 90+ degrees outside the thermostat is set at 75 and at times we were cold. The attic/storage area is just about the same temperature as the rest of the house thanks to the spray foam insulation! It was a great decision to go with Hagood. We did upgrade a few things but for the most part we built an "off the shelf" home that actually feels very custom. Hagood offers a 30 day walk-through so that they can fix any major issues and then a 1 year walk through where they will fix drywall dings and other cosmetic items. Like any build nothing is perfect and there are a list of items that we have already; nothing major. Based on their customer service to date, I have full confidence that they will continue in that vein.
Thank you to Josh Adams, Patrick Kennedy, Kenzie Keenan, and Daniel Miller for helping us through this entire process!"
Gayle Pfeiffer"Hagood built my Shackleford Banks home almost 7 years ago in Compass Pointe. My home still ranks high in energy efficiency in the Duke Energy reports. It's quiet, solid and just as comfortable as it was when new. The house has been through 2 hurricanes, several tropical storms and has had no roof/window issues. I felt that I received custom build at a production price."
Greg Derocco"We are in the process of building our new home with Hagood Homes in North Carolina. We chose Hagood Homes because of the quality of materials they use and the design of their homes. Josh Adams is our point man for this build and has kept us informed every step of the way. He has been very professional and a pleasure to work. We feel we are in good hands with his guidance."
John & Kathy"We fell in love with the Shackleford Banks design by Hagood. Working with Josh Adams was a pleasure and we still visit with him as he continues to have a strong presence in Compass Pointe. The process was easy to follow and upgrades were incorporated efficiently. Any of our concerns were addressed and the house was delivered on schedule. We now have our sanctuary and are glad we selected Hagood to deliver on our vision."
John Sherman"Hagood builders is a top notch builder of new homes. We were present during the build so we got to see each step of the process and evaluate in real time. Any issues that arose were dealt with quickly and we were consulted as to whether the process met our approval. Hagood builds quality and value into a home such that there were only a few small items needing addressing as we moved in. I would recommend Hagood to anyone I know."
Linda Davidson"When we decided to build in Compass Pointe, we looked at 8 builders in the area. We selected Hagood because we loved the coastal look of their homes, as well as all the features that were available. Josh Adams was great to work with as we navigated building our first home. Our customized Shackleford Banks Alternative was completed in December and it is just perfect. It is solidly constructed, energy efficient and we couldn't be happier with the results."
Marie Magezi"I am excited about my forever home being close to being done. From the very start of this journey you have guided me and helped me make some critical decisions that would have been overwhelming otherwise. Hagood has made this an enjoyable experience so far. Everyone in the office has been great and out in the field Mike has been excellent. I am looking forward to finally moving to Compass Pointe and living in my beautiful Hagood home. Thank you for your impeccable customer service. It means a lot."
Mary Sue & Victor"We were extremely pleased and happy with the way that our house buying process turned out with Hagood Homes. Of course, the initial draw was the beautiful craftsmanship of our new home, but after meeting Nora and Hannah, the process progressed seamlessly! They sat down and answered our long list of questions, while also taking notes and immediately coordinating our requests. They helped us not only keep up with all of the vendors needed, but also to reassure us that everything we dreamed was a possibility! Their excitement for us and our family was genuine and enhanced our experience with the Hagood builder team. Although there are inevitably hiccups along the way, Hagood did their best to remedy them quickly and efficiently. Overall, we are very thankful for Hagood's professionalism, our easy buying experience and of course, our new home!"
Michael Stevens"We are working with Hagood to build our final house! We went to the Builders Showcase at Compass Pointe. We visited the Hagood model last since we had seen a Hagood house at another development. From the moment you walk in, there is just something different about a Hagood home. You know you are in a high quality, well built home.
Josh was so great to work with in modifying out plans and getting the contract completed. Selena gave us some really good advice in the selection process. I was really nervous about how much more we would have to pay after completing all the selections, but we found Hagood to be very reasonable with how they priced add-ons and selections above grade.
We are in the construction phase right now and Brandon has become our new best friend. He keeps us informed with good visibility into the schedule and pictures. This has been a positive experience for us which is important since we do not live in the area."
Mike & Angela Nesbit"Being born and raised in North Carolina, I left the state in 1979, seeking my opportunities and found a career, wife, and eventually a family. I married a southern gal, and our goal was to return to North Carolina one day as our last stop. We bought a lot in Winding River because we saw the tremendous offering and lifestyle. Twenty years later, it was time to build a house. It was daunting for us to be 750 miles away just to find a builder, much less one we could trust and build our dream home. We found what we were looking for in Hagood Homes, and we looked at several builders. Hagood offered us a high level of communication and involvement throughout the entire process that eliminated our anxiety. Beyond that, Hagood built our home with a high level of detail and selections that came standard in the house, so we had very few chargeable options. We were looking for a high level of detail, which we got but in a very relaxed presentation, and that's precisely what we got in our Hagood Home. I would definitely build with Hagood again."
Peter & Cheryl DiGangi"Hagood will build you a good home. From planning with Josh Adams to the build with project manager Daniel Miller: the total experience and the quality of workmanship has been truly exceptional. And let’s not forget the selections team; Selena and Kenzie who have made this complex process seamless and easy. Phone calls and emails are always returned promptly with solutions and alternatives.
We looked at many models and builders before we selected Hagood...and we’re certainly glad we did. They have a great reputation amongst tradesmen, home inspectors, and the general public. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to build a quality home with style and beauty."
Trish, Tyler & Mike"Trish and I wanted to thank the Hagood team for our beautiful home. We’ve now had a few months in our house and are very pleased. The neighborhood is fantastic and people are very welcoming. We can’t say enough how pleased we were during the building process. A few hiccups, as expected when building, but all minor issues were addressed immediately by Jeff. It’s exciting to see the remaining lots spring to life with new homes with new neighbors. Thanks again Hagood team!"
Wayne & Linda Tillman"When we were looking for a builder for our lot in Winding River Plantation we interviewed many companies and toured their spec homes. We simply fell in love with the Shackleford Banks model that Hagood Homes built. Everything that we wanted was included and the quality of workmanship was very apparent. The building process was even better than we expected and the house was delivered exactly on time. We love our home and also love living the coastal lifestyle in Winding River Plantation."
Pamela Cedrone"I can’t say enough good things about Hagood Homes! Their quality and attention to detail is exceptional. They include a lot more in their base price than other builders which makes them highly competitive or better - no unnecessary surprises. The selection process was seamless, professional & thorough. I’ve enjoyed the total experience from the initial sales appointment to every meeting thereafter. Communication with the entire staff was excellent! I can’t wait to move into my Hagood home!"
John & Cindy Wickman"My husband and myself have had a really great experience working with Haygood Homes and their sales rep Josh Adams. They really take their time to work to have a home that is right for you. The overall quality and attention to detail is what was important for us. We live in Michigan and Travel at different times to look and design our home and the team at Haygood has been very accommodating. We love the high quality of finishes and the variety of designs and that they let you customize to fit your needs."
Rick & Linda Shilts"Hagood Homes was amazing! Our home is a first class custom home. So many standard features! Hagood offers spray foam insulation in the ceiling and walls and what a tight seal and difference that makes in our utility bills! Our house is 1,000 square feet larger than our neighbors and our electric bill is much cheaper!! Hagood puts so many fine features in their homes from the tile on the front porch , the large baseboards, Wayne’s coating, crown molding, etc! The selection offerings were numerous too! We were able to take a plan, Mark it up with changes and Troy masterfully made it a reality! Our one year walk through was a breeze and the few minor things on the list were completed In a timely manner! Our salesman Josh Adams was amazing! He was there for us every step of the way! We are so so happy with our “ custom” Hagood Home and highly recommend them to others!!"
Jim & Gudrun Chase"Sales staff is friendly and easy to work with. Some problems with responsiveness during the building process that ultimately could be worked out because the new building manager who started towards the end of our build was very helpful and always there when we had concerns or questions. Happy with the quality of the house."
Rik & Marci Williams"We worked with Hagood Homes in 2012 to design and build our home in Compass Pointe. It was not our first home-building experience, but it was by far our best. We found Hagood Homes to be extremely professional, responsive and yet personal and caring in every step of the process. The quality of their work was extraordinary. Now 8 years later we feel the same way. Their workmanship has been superb and held up well. We think all the builders in our community are excellent, but Hagood Homes is a step above the rest."
James & Dianne Smith"We’re approaching 4 years since we closed on our home in Compass Pointe. We went the custom route, since there were some things we were looking to do, that were slightly outside of the norm. Our hat’s off to Troy Kenny, who was able to put what we had in our heads, on paper, and make it happen. We were not in town during the build, but we had peace of mind, since our building supervisor kept in touch with us on a regular basis. Jim Kenny even stopped by, during the build, to check on things and in some cases had contractors redo items that he felt were not up to Hagood standards. After the warranty had long expired, when a trim issue was noticed that had been missed by all, a Hagood supervisor came by, and brought in a contractor to take care of the issue. It was nice to see a builder stand by their product. So we’d like to thank Hagood Homes for another quality build."
John & Dianna McGinley"We toured many homes in Compass Pointe before we visited the St Kitts model and spoke with Josh who was very helpful. We decided then that the St Kitts was the home for us. The rooms are spacious and the floor plan well thought out. The entire process went very well due to the entire Hagood team. We've been here since December and are very happy."
Dave and Cathy Gustat"We just wanted to reach out to say how awesome our experience in building our retirement home with Hagood Homes has been! We chose Hagood for our builder because of the great reviews from former clients and because we knew we wanted to build a home custom to our needs. When it comes to a custom home design Hagood can’t be beat.
They listened carefully to our specific vision and designed exactly what we asked for. We made many upgraded choices which were never a problem for the selections team to source. Our journey started with Josh Adams and his vast knowledge of construction and the entire home building process. He was so friendly, attentive and a fountain of information, not mention his patience as I called him every couple of days regarding our design!
The entire Hagood team has been available to us every step of the way and take real pride in the details of their homes. We live in the Chicago area so have been extremely pleased with the almost daily updates, pictures, and videos of the progress being made. A huge thanks to the entire Hagood family for bringing our retirement dream home to a reality that we will enjoy for years to come!"
Dennis & Susan Murphy"We love our Hagood home and love Compass Pointe. Our home is so light-filled due to the oversized windows Hagood uses, it is wonderful. The construction is excellent with professional insulating techniques that keep our utility bills low and our comfort level high.
We have been enjoying our home for almost three years and we had virtually no "punch list" issues and those were addressed and happily resolved. We looked at other builders' models and found them nice but a bit dark. We are very happy with our Hagood built home."
Jeff & Robin
Jim & Terry Newbrough
After we figured out where we wanted to live the next step was picking a builder and the house. After many trips to our new location and talking to more builders than I care to remember, we picked Hagood homes.
We decided on Hagood homes primarily of the quality they put into their homes but also Josh Adams, sales manager. Josh went way up and above to help Terry and I pick the home we wanted and in a format that met all are requirements.
This was no easy task. It took us almost a year to pick a floor plan and fit all our needs into the new house. Josh never wavered or even get the least bit impatient. I’m not sure I would have had the patience to deal with Terry and me. But Josh sure did.
It’s hard to find people with the interpersonal skills that Josh has. We appreciate his patience and his knowledge. If it wasn’t for him I think we may still be floundering around."

Our sales liaison guided us through the complexities of custom home building with attention to each aspect, and effective communications helped set expectations at every level of the process. Your frequent offer of various suggestions and alternatives were always very helpful in making decisions.
[Our sales agent] was always easy to connect with and attention to our project was superb. We never sensed that we were one of many of your customers, although we know how busy Hagood Builders are currently. Aside from the specifics of building our home, we appreciated your integrity and expertise, relationships within Compass Pointe and your sunny disposition which have put us at ease with this life changing event."

Kevin & Christine Loughran
Josh answered all of our questions and accompanied us us to the model homes available to help us in our decision making process. He then went over each option that was in the model home and reviewed costs and other choices. In addition he was present during our selections process.
Josh is a true asset to your organization and we were very happy that he was the first individual of Hagood Homes that we encountered. You should feel very proud that you have such a knowledgeable, friendly individual representing your firm at Compass Pointe.
We would also like to thank Kappy Johnson for her help in the selections and Adam Worrell for keeping the subcontractors on task."
Dennis J Murphy"Susan and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all that you and Hagood Homes have done to make our purchase truly exceptional.
As we were looking at homes here in Leland we consistently saw the expertise and fine finishing details of Hagood Homes. Our home is not unique in its floor plan. But it is so unique and special in the manner in which this home takes advantage of the light and the surrounding area. The attention to detail is obvious.
Josh, when we met you at what is now our home, we were not totally committed. Your explanation of the many features and benefits (i.e. the HVAC system in place and the structure of the home as well as the Hagood reputation and warranty) helped us make our final, happy decision.
Your follow up and follow through continues to confirm that we made a very good decision."
Chet & Mary Fox"Love Hagood Homes and Josh Adams. We actually have 2 Hagood Homes one we rent out and one New Build. Working with Hagood was a pleasure. The whole team was wonderful and as a result our new home on Oak Abbey is way more than expected! Would highly recommend them as a builder any time. Thanks Hagood for making our dreams come true!"
Doug & Dorene Shirey"We absolutely love our Hagood home! We, as many Compass Pointe residents, downsized from a much larger traditional home with a basement. Our Hagood Shackleford Banks home feels spacious and airy! It beautifully accommodates entertaining. The huge storage capacity of the easily accessible attic has more than met all our storage needs.
We made some floor plan changes to meet our specific taste and needs. The Hagood team did a fantastic job making our vision a reality.
Have to add that it is an added benefit to have had contractors not affiliated with Hagood comment on how well built our homes is!
We found Josh Adams a pleasure to work with He is knowledgeable and invested in helping you create a home that is just right for you! It is truly telling that all of our neighbors on an all Hagood street maintain what has become a friendship with Josh. I think that speaks volumes regarding our experiences with Josh and with Hagood."
Kenny & Kathy Windsor"We are in the process of building a Hagood home in Compass Pointe thanks to Josh, the reason we chose Hagood! We much appreciate his availability and knowledge. Also want to thank our project manager, Dave, who has been wonderful throughout this process.Dave keeps us informed daily through builder trend with photos and video, text, FaceTime and phone calls. Up to this point, our experience has been excellent! We are very excited to see the finished product and join the Compass Pointe community."
Barry & Sherry"We are so thrilled to finally be moved into our Compass Pointe home full time! Upon first seeing our lot in 2015, we knew we wanted to make this our home. We love our Hagood home, and appreciate the efforts of the team working with us to build our house, and make our move a reality!"
Mike & Marietta"It has been a pleasure building our new home with Hagood. Our house was a custom build, and Josh was amazing while he guided us through the process. He and Troy came up with different options to meet our needs.
We met many wonderful Hagood people during our building process. Jim Kenny is a wonderful man who loves what he does, and he’s so good at it. He is proud of Hagood Homes, and his employees share his love. It’s no surprise that Hagood Homes stand out in the community.
We worked with Mackenzie Keenan to do our selections. She brought us to different vendors to select our electrical fixtures, cabinets, countertops, and appliances. It’s such a pleasure to work with people who know what they’re doing.
We are very impressed with our project manager, Daniel Miller. He goes out of his way to provide us with pictures and videos of our house being built.
We are very lucky to be living in Compass Pointe while our house is being built. It is a wonderful community with great amenities. If you are thinking of moving to Compass Pointe, make sure you visit Josh Adams to see what Hagood Homes could offer you. They’re really top of the line. It’s not a cookie cutter house, their houses come with so many features that other builders charge extra for. You will not be disappointed!"
George & Lori James"Congratulations to Hagood Homes! Thank you Josh for working with us in the planning stages and helping us with some design changes. We are very happy with our Pointe Harbor home. Our home is beautiful, bright, open and has plenty of storage space. George and I are looking forward to many happy years in our Hagood Home."
Peter & Cheryl DiGangi"Josh Adams at Hagood homes was fantastic in helping us select our beautiful forever home. He patiently went through all the details with us and answered all our questions silly or not. Our experience with with the entire Hagood Homes team: Selena, Kenzie, Madison, Patrick and especially Daniel Miller our project manager have been without question exceptional. They under promised and over delivered. Peter and I would highly recommend Hagood Homes to even a member of our family. Not only do they build great homes, but they give spectacular service. Thank you Hagood ❤️"
I love living in my new home! I appreciate the aesthetics of the Catherine’s Cove neighborhood and the exterior of my home in particular. The lines of my house, the front porch, and the landscaping all contribute to its curb appeal and charm. On the inside the layout is functional, comfortable, and adaptable. The windows are well placed, large, and capture the natural light. The finishes are both beautiful and welcoming. I use every room in the house; there is no wasted space! It has been a pleasure to work with Hagood! They are proactive and helpful, and take their commitment to building both homes and community to heart."

Jim & Ellen
Catherine’s Cove is a great development. The neighbors are honestly the most welcoming and kind people. I will add that they are a fun group to hangout with.
We moved here from Annapolis, Maryland in June 2019. We were looking for an area that was a little less harsh than the winters we have up north. We love the beach but did not want to go as far as Florida. We visited Wilmington multiple times and just fell in love with the people and the area. Plus it is more retirement friendly than Maryland.
Our experience with Hagood Homes has been amazing. We have dealt with builders back in Maryland and at times has been a real nightmare. Hagood Homes are by far the best builder that we have every had the pleasure of dealing with. They are very easy to work with and truly care about the product they produce. They are family!"
Joe & Felice
This is our second time living in a Hagood Home, and I can't say enough great things about them. When you walk through their homes, you instantly feel the warmth and how much great planning goes into the layouts. Your instincts are right if you think about the female touch in their designs and plans. Troy Kenny certainly has the special touch when planning the designs.
One of my favorite aspects of Hagood Homes is that most of what you find in the models, will be what you will have in your home. You will NOT find white chalky walls. You get to pick from a beautiful color palette to make your home warm and cheerful. The details are charming and plenty, and you know when you drive through a Hagood Neighborhood, that everything is well thought of and well planned.
We have been settled in now for a couple of weeks. We wake up to a bright, cheerful place we call home, and feel lucky to be part of a Hagood Neighborhood."
David & Terri Kennedy"From Troy’s design through Mary Virginia’s decorating tips the whole Hagood team created a beautiful home for us and made our home building experience delightful. Even after the closing Jim and his team continue to help us whenever we need assistance. We highly recommend Hagood Homes to everyone."
It was a Parade Home. As I approached the front porch I noticed a heaping pile of shoes left by all the people who had arrived before me. I remember thinking that this said a lot about the builder - the simple act of asking people to remove their shoes before entering demonstrated their care for their product and it also showed a tremendous amount of respect for the buyers that would eventually live in that home.
As I entered the home, I remember feeling so warm and welcomed. In addition to immediately being impressed with the obvious quality construction, I was also struck by the high-end finishes. It was apparent that Hagood Homes had been thoughtful in selecting classic finishes that would stand the test of time while also including new-to-market trends that would appeal to any buyer. The design of the home was flawless in that its practical flow took advantage of every square inch of space. Natural light poured into the home from every room and added to the warmth of the space despite its open layout. Even though the home was not in my preferred location, I was thrilled to have become acquainted with an extraordinary builder of beautiful homes!
I've built 3 homes in and around the Wilmington area since that time and each and every time I began my home search I would visit the Hagood website to see if they were building in an area that would be suitable for me. Unfortunately, things never lined up. I've only been in my current home for 2 years and even though it doesn't feel like the best long-term option I had decided to delay a search for a while yet. That was until I discovered Catherine's Cove. Upon visiting the model home and neighborhood, I knew immediately that Hagood's commitment to quality is alive and well after all these years. Within a couple weeks of visiting, I went under contract as I am confident this home will be my "forever home" and I don't want to miss out on the opportunity to fulfill my dream of owning a Hagood home in what I consider the absolute most ideal location in New Hanover County.
The journey has been a long one - roughly 20 years - but I finally feel like I'm really coming home!"
Tom & Nancy Pane"Hagood was the only builder we interviewed with who from the start met almost every thing that we had on our wish list and were able to satisfy our wish list completely. When we asked for modifications to our house plan, they were easy to work with to get it done. We loved the attention they gave us during the home research process and the ability to work with us effectively from afar."
