The United Companies originated in 1970 with United Realty. Since its genesis United Realty has spun off several companies encompassing all areas of real estate and development.
Since 1986 United Developers/Duggins Smith Builders has been constructing and developing quality multi-family, single family and commercial developments. United has been nationally recognized as one of the most respected builder/developers in the southeastern United States.
United Developers has a 30+year track record in the development and construction of quality housing. Since its inception, United Developers has developed, constructed, and rehabilitated over 3000 units of affordable housing and 750 units of market-rate housing, including both rental and for-sale units. Of the 3000+ units of affordable housing, 940 units have been constructed and rehabilitated in the city of Fayetteville and Cumberland County, of which 748 of these units were done in partnership with the City of Fayetteville and Cumberland County.
Through these partnerships and the cooperation of key city and county officials such as Marshall Pitts, Roger Stancil, Victor Sharpe, Ben Brown, Michael McNair, Dale Iman, Tony Chavonne, Kenneth Edge, Breeden Blackwell, James Martin, Juanita Pilgrim and Thanena Wilson. United Developers has built a reputation of integrity and quality in affordable housing not only in Fayetteville and Cumberland County but across North and South Carolina. United has earned this reputation by being a company of its word.
We have proposed and delivered a quality product both on time and on budget to the accolades of the city and county, and have added to the quality stock of affordable housing and enhanced the quality of life for its recipients. United has been successful in managing multiple projects simultaneously through its integrated construction software, which includes takeoff, scheduling, and accounting, not to mention its seasoned, knowledgeable, and loyal staff. In 2010 over 500 units will be under construction in North and South Carolina. It is for all of these reasons and within the guidance of HUD’s Cost Containment and Safe Harbor Guidelines that United is serving as the general contractor and Lead Developer for the rental components of the Fayetteville, North Carolina HOPE VI program. When completed in 2012 the Hope VI will have 647 units of multifamily units.
