Auburn builder Dilworth Homes announced Friday that it has been acquired by Birmingham-based Harris Doyle Homes.

“We are excited and grateful for the opportunity to partner with Harris Doyle and join Clayton Properties Group,” said Michael Dilworth, who founded his company in 1999. “Joining forces with Harris Doyle just makes sense as we are all working toward common goals: to provide a first-class homebuilding experience for our customers and to provide extraordinary resources and opportunities for our team members to grow and develop, both of which will be enhanced through this partnership.”

The Federal Reserve said Wednesday that it will keep buying government bonds until the economy makes substantial progress — a step intended to reassure financial markets and keep long-term borrowing rates low indefinitely.

Harris Doyle, a Berkshire Hathaway company and subsidiary of Clayton Properties Group, wanted to expand its footprint in Lee County.

“We are proud to welcome Dilworth to the Harris Doyle family,” said Brooks Harris, one of the founders of the company. “I know it’s going to be a great fit. From early conversations, it was clear that both companies share very similar core values, cultural alignment and thrive off a team mindset to provide high-level service to our customers.”

Michael Dilworth will continue to operate under the Dilworth Homes brand name in Lee and Baldwin counties. Russ Doyle will maintain his role as President of Harris Doyle and Harris will also continue as Chief Business Development Officer.

Dilworth currently builds in seven communities in Auburn and four more in Baldwin County. Harris Doyle currently has 12 communities across Birmingham, Auburn, Pike Road and Lake Martin.
