Born in Japan and raised literally around the world, Rick Wyatt, President of Zenith Homes, developed an early and lasting appreciation for architecture and elegant design. From an early age, Rick was intrigued not only with the outward appearance of beautiful structures but also with the process of how these structures came to be. Rick selected North Carolina State University to pursue studies related to his keen interest in the building process and graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. After working in commercial construction for five years, Rick moved into residential construction, where he discovered his true passion.

Rick Wyatt of Zenith Homes made the normally exhausting and nerve racking experience of building a custom home more simple and enjoyable. Rick was able to effectively coordinate and supervise all of the trades involved and gave us a clear timeline of when work along the way would be completed. Rick also has reliable suppliers that were very helpful and gave us a variety of choices for lighting, carpeting, appliances, etc. while helping us to stay within a realistic budget. Rick’s  easy going personality and patience allowed him to answer questions and concerns promptly. All of this helped us to have a truly beautiful home that we feel very comfortable in.

My wife and I want to thank you for the beautiful home that you built for our family. We are very pleased with the construction and flexibility in design. Throughout the process, you were prompt in responding to our requests, accurate in your quotes for the upgrades and honest in delivering what you promised. After closing, you continued to follow up and quickly respond to our phone calls. We appreciate your integrity and professionalism. Working with you to complete our home was a pleasant experience because of your accessibility and nice personality. We have recommended you to several friends and will be glad to serve as a referral to future clients.

Rick built my house and I can tell you that everyone who knows me, knows how much I LOVE my house. Rick was so easy to work with. His professional and considerate attention to the items that were important to me was 'above and beyond'. The quality and detail in my house is something you don't find in new construction these days. If I ever buy another house, I want Rick Wyatt to build it!

After building four homes, we have had good experiences and good experiences... Working with Rick Wyatt was definitely a good experience! To us, one of the most important components of the builder home buyer relationship is the communication process. This is an area in which Rick excelled. He was a great listener, he was easily accessible, and he followed up quickly on the items in which he needed to confer with someone else and get back to us with answers. Simply put, Rick always did what he said he was going to do. He was true to his timeline. Our home was ready for move-in when he said it would be. We are very pleased and very satisfied with our new home. We highly recommend Rick Wyatt and his company, Zenith Homes!

My experience in working with Rick Wyatt was great! I closed on my house last October, with my three month old baby proudly in tow... What could have been a very stressful time of building a home while expecting and then having  a baby was actually not stressful at all, due to Rick’s good communication and organization skills. I had lots of questions since I had never built a home before, and Rick was very patient with me, making sure I understood the process, and he was always prompt in his follow up. I worried at times that maybe I had too many requests for what I wanted in my home, but Rick came through every time, delivering just what I wanted. I am very pleased with my home, and I wholeheartedly refer Rick to other people looking for a builder.
