About Us

Our Family Business​

When you begin a building project with Diamond Builders, you will quickly learn that Diamond is truly a family business. From project inception, throughout the planning and design phases, and especially during construction, we strive to make your experience one that is not only satisfying but truly enjoyable.
Each member of our staff takes into consideration the unique dreams and goals for your home, and we work hard to make you feel like you are a part of the Diamond Builders family. Since establishing in 1999, Diamond Builders has grown into one of the most successful and acclaimed home construction companies in the Quad Cities, while maintaining it’s personal feel and family atmosphere. You will find the quality and creativity of our work to be nothing less than excellent, but what we really think you’ll find with Diamond Builders is an environment of respect where a handshake still means something. To put it simply, we hope to be a blessing to you and your family as we create, your dream home.
We are very proud and thankful to be awarded Best in Show for the 2018 Fall Parade of Homes for our model villa at The Villas at Century Farm in Eldridge, IA. Mirroring the success of The Villas At Pheasant Creek and Villas At Century Farms, we are in the final phase of Villas At Prairie Heights. The lots are being sold quickly because of the great location.  If you are interested in building with us in Davenport, IA,  please reach out to us soon.
