Our Story

Our Story

In more than 50 years as an award-winning developer, we have helped more than 7,000 families realize the lifestyle they always wanted. It all starts with our commitment to putting customers first.

Leadership

Creating an enduring sense of neighborhood is top-of-mind in any business decision we make. Our leadership team includes people who grew up in the business and have strong ties to Southeastern Virginia. 

History

In 1968, George Dragas founded Dragas Mortgage. Seeing people achieve the American dream of homeownership led quite naturally to a partnership with his brother Mark to develop and build reasonably priced homes in Hampton Roads. Their vision remains a northstar for Dragas today.
