Diamond Homes is committed to quality, clarity (no inclusions), and flawlessness just like a Diamond.

Diamond Homes strives to provide our customers with the best quality service imaginable. From the beginning of the home building process, we provide the one-on-one attention you deserve to ensure that your home and your experience are cut above the rest. The owner/operator of Diamond Homes, John Davis, believes that trust and honesty are the building blocks of any relationship and, therefore, makes himself available to his customers. 

You will find your builder working on the job sites every day of the week. Diamond Homes has raised the bar on building quality constructed homes and hands-on approach. This strong work ethic and values have earned the company the respect of its peers and the trust of the local developers . Dedication to the quality of the home they build, not the quantity, is achieved by personal attention to each and every home.

John Davis and his family have previously resided in two of their very own passed developments. This allowed all clients to have constant access to the builder and shows John’s level of commitment to his clients. This is the type of service you can expect when you purchase a Diamond Home.

As a young couple, buying your first home is a monumental step in life. With that being said, building! Your first home is nothing short of an emotional roller coaster with HGTV as a backdrop.
John and his entire team were nothing but the personification of diamonds themselves, not phased by pressure and crafting a thing of beauty. My diamond home was built in a expedient manner and followed a logical sequence of construction, when we would drop in to see the progress we would be greeted by John who was typically elbow deep in dust and working alongside his subordinates, which is the pinnacle of professionalism in my opinion. Our home was completed earlier then scheduled to accommodate my departure overseas and words don’t describe the feelings I had being able to walk into the finished product and see it completed.
Truly a great experience and I would recommend John & Diamond homes to anyone without skipping a beat!

“Ashley and I just wanted to thank you and your Team at Diamond Homes for the great work you did constructing our new home.

We are very happy with it and enjoyed this building experience with you.

Ashley and I are very pleased with the help and support we received picking out everything from cabinets to shingles, we had a dream and your Team made it happen with in our budget and within the time frame we gave.

I am very impressed on the level of Workmanship, Pride and detail from all the diamond homes team you employed building our home. They are all great people and very professional. ”

Matt & Ashley Gillis 

We’ve had two new build homes in the past and this by far is the nicest home. The quality and craftsmanship is top notch. They really take pride in their homes and it shows through their construction. They go beyond and exceed all expectations..Thank you!

David & Susan Holubek

John Davis and his team are true professionals , after searching for 3 years for our retirement home and dealing with various builders we are happy we chose Diamond Homes. Our home is a high quality build inside and out. Our home was completed on the date promised and John was always available to answer any questions we had .John Davis and his team are simply the best!!

Catriona Byk

We have nothing but good things to say about Diamond Homes and their workmanship. We had been in our previous home for twenty-three years and were looking to downsize for retirement. We came upon this builder’s Open House and fell in love with the functionality, flow and presentation of the model home. We had looked at other builders and saw an array of different ideas but as soon as we walked through the door of the Diamond Model Home, we knew that we had found our “Forever” home. It had everything that we were looking for, from the open floor plan and brightness throughout, to the attention to detail. We have never looked back. John Davis and Diamond Homes went beyond expectation and worked with us to allow us to take possession of our home before the original closing date. Any concerns we had were handled with the utmost professionalism on the part of Diamond Homes. Thank You John Davis and Diamond Homes.

Dave & Donna McGlynn

Diamond Homes exceeded our expectations. From the first meeting with John and Cathy Davis to our move in date was an enjoyable process. They were very accommodating and met all our requests during the build. They made it easy and stress free with their design team.
They were flexible when we had changes to make and extremely knowledgeable throughout the building process.
After we moved in any issues were addressed promptly and in fact a year and a few months later our outdoor lights blew out and they installed three new ones within a few days, Amazing!
Diamond Homes delivered a quality home with quality service to us. We picked the right builder in the right neighborhood and couldn’t be happier with our decision!

Roy & Michele Campbell


I have wanted for some time to express my sincere thanks to you and your team for the wonderful home you built my family this year. We are moved in; settled and remain thrilled time and again that we chose you and Diamond Homes as our builder. Your quality of workmanship; name brand products and building expertise have made the construction of our new home an enjoyable and exciting experience. It is the attention to detail and ease of access to you, our builder; that we most appreciated.

John, it has been wonderful dealing with you, your wife and your team. Meeting Cathy at the time I met you was so important; as it showed a “family” operation and it appears to me that your employees are also an extension of that family. Trust, honesty, integrity; these were words on your website and they were important to me when I decided to work with you. I just want to say that you have upheld all of these virtues. If I can ever speak with a prospective purchaser, who may want a personal opinion prior to contracting you, I would be more than glad to offer my support.   As our building relationship draws to a close, I look forward to seeing you often in the neighbourhood as you continue to build for the many families in the future, changing lives in a wonderful way. Again, my sincere thanks to you, Cathy, Rhonda, Winston and your team.

“Diamond Homes is a quality builder in the Quinte area and are great to deal with. They always use quality NorthStar windows, KV doors and Gentek siding on all their houses.”

“We are very happy with the work John Davis did for us. We have never built a house before, and from the day we met him he was professional, friendly and trustworthy. He was easy to get in touch with and responsive to our questions and concerns. The work is custom and high quality and exactly what we asked for. The house was finished on time and priced very reasonably. If we build again in Quinte we would ask John if he would do it for us. It was a great experience. Highly recommend.”

Having purchased a number of homes, this is by far the most rewarding experience that I have had with a developer. John Davis and his team went overboard before, during and after building our home. He kept us informed on the progress of construction, recommended excellent suppliers of finish material and appliances. He was there at the closing and gave us information on who to contact should we need anything. He followed up after the sale and was always just a phone call away. It has been a pleasure to see a true professional in action and to meet someone who takes pride in his work. I look forward to working with John and highly recommend Diamond Homes as a builder.

John Davis and his entire Team are rare Diamonds! Being in the Real Estate business and working closely with all the local Builders there is no one else I would choose to personally build my own home except Diamond Homes. Over the past 10 years Diamond Homes has built 3 houses for me, and each time I was continually impressed at his attention to detail, patience, and quality of workmanship. Each project was completed as promised and on time. It is not too often you will actually meet the Builder, but John Davis prides himself on being hands on and in front of the clients to ensure they are properly looked after and their every need is met. If you are thinking of having a house built, look no further… Forget the rest… hire the Best!

We purchased a lot in Oak Hills and designed our own 1,800 sq. ft. bungalow. A big decision was who to have build it. Fortunately, we definitely made the right decision having chosen Diamond Homes owner John Davis. John was extremely helpful in finalizing our design, flexible with mid way changes, with on time completion and within budget. His attention to detail, hands on approach and continued support post move in is excellent. John and his Tradesmen were very friendly and did a first class job.

Project completion in terms of quality of build and professionalism exceeded expectations. Over ten years later, we had an issue with some of the deck supports – I called John, described the situation – despite being many, many years past warranty, John came, inspected the issue and covered the labour of repair – can you ask for more?

Diamond Homes by Davis is a superior home building company! Their attention to detail is impeccable and they make it fun at the same time! Their houses are thoroughly thought out and their communication throughout the process creates a wonderful home-buying experience! John and Cathy have a great team behind them and I would hire them to build my dream home! I have also had the experience of working with Diamond Homes by Davis and their clients on a financing basis. I have never heard a bad comment about their homes. I would highly recommend them for your home-building needs!!

My wife and I built our first home with Diamond Homes. Being new to the experience we had lots of questions regarding the home building process. John Davis and his team took the time to ensure all of our questions were answered which made the experience stress free. John worked with us to select a floor plan which met the needs of our growing family. John even took the time to help us select flooring, paint, cabinets and lighting, explaining the difference between the many options. The end result was a home that we love. After care provided by John and his team was amazing. One example of this great customer service happened when we had a flood in our basement (entirely my fault). John and his team quickly helped us with clean up and provided a little friendly education regarding flood avoidance.

I can’t say enough good things about my experiences with John Davis and Diamond Homes. I have referred friends who have purchased with Diamond Homes and they share the same sentiments.

Thanks John!

Hi John:
I am writing to express my complete appreciation and gratitude for you, and satisfaction with my “Diamond Home”.

As a widowed senior citizen, it was quite an undertaking to have a new home built. Most people would say that I was in over my head… with any other builder, they might have been right. But you made the whole process seem so effortless. As a “hands-on” builder, you were remarkably accessible. You took the time to answer my many questions and to explain the process to me. That meant so much. I don’t know a lot about construction, but I have two very good friends, both builders, who have been to my home. Both of them said that the quality of your construction is excellent. I got exactly the house I wanted, and closing was ahead of schedule. It can’t get better than that!

Please don’t hesitate to have potential customers contact me.

Thank you again,


P.S. The fact that this is my second home build by “Diamond Homes” speaks for itself!

I recently had the pleasure of working with John Davis of Diamond Homes on the major renovation of my large waterfront home in the Quinte area. While we could have chosen anyone for this project, we believed John would provide the best service available. We were not disappointed! John’s attention to detail and relaxed demeanour made this a stress-free experience and produced a spectacular home that my family will enjoy for years to come.

“We met with a number of builders & viewed quite a few house plans and lots before deciding to go with Diamond Homes in the second phase of the Forest Ridge Subdivision.  From start to finish, John and his staff and subcontractors were great to work with and responsive to our questions and concerns during the build process.  John and his crew built us a house which we are happy and proud to call our home!”  David & Louise Smith

Just a note to let you know just how much we are enjoying our new townhouse.  It is just what we wanted when we downsized. It is the perfect size for us with every-thing on one level. You and your work crew are a great team to work with, friendly and approachable and always on site. Any issues, which aren’t  many , were looked after right  away and professionally. The finished product is superb and as I said , we are both  extremely happy.

The neighbourhood is great and everyone is quite friendly which is hard to find  nowadays.

Thanks again,
Sandy and Ken Jackson

I built my first ‘new home’ with Diamond Homes and I would highly recommend working with John Davis and his team. I was able to select a floor plan that met my needs and my budget and had the option to choose paint colours, flooring, windows, kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, amongst other options and upgrades. Diamond Homes also provided an interior designer who helped me pull together my selections and keep me on track. Throughout the entire process, John was always available to answer questions and address concerns  and willingly worked with me to find solutions when needed. Finally, the after sales service provided by his Team is second to none! I would, without hesitation, refer Diamond Homes to anyone looking for a quality home and a stress-free building experience. – Kyle Weir
