Dirk Bruyn III
President & Founder
As CEO, Dirk brings a unique blend of personality, talent and expertise that has proven to serve his particular clientèle well. First and foremost, he takes a personal interest in each client and listens to their thoughts and ideas for their new home. His respectful approach, combined with his sense of humor, immediately puts clients at ease — especially important when partnering on something as personal and important as creating a new home.

Of course, the ultimate measure of Dirk’s leadership role in Bruyn Homes’ success is two-fold: customer satisfaction and a beautiful product.

She and her husband have lived in the NE Grand Rapids Area for 20+ years, where they raised their two children.
What Our Clients Say
Thank you so much for not only building us a house of our own but a home for us that we love. You made a difficult process easier with all of your help. Any bumps in the road were smoothed out and fixed sometimes before we even knew there was a problem. Your attention to detail and love for what you do shows in our amazing house. We all love it so much and love how you involved even the kids in the process. You didn’t mind our nearly every day visits and made the kids feel like they were doing something. The memories we have made from start to finish have been amazing. If we ever build again or have anyone ask about a builder we know who to call. We appreciate everything that you have done in making this house a home.
The team did a great job. I would use Bruyn Homes again without hesitation.
Our basement is now a beautiful and functional living space. Working with them was easy, they were always courteous and professional and full of great ideas.
We cannot begin to express our gratitude for an amazing job that Bruyn Homes did on our new house. From meeting with Fred and deciding to build, to our meetings with Dirk and continual work with Beth, the process went smoothly and we were involved in each and every step of the way. The quality of craftsmanship and the pride that Bruyn Homes put into our home and our concerns were paramount. From foundation pour to finished home, we were in our new home in less than 5 months. We could not be happier with our decision not only to build a new home but in choosing Bruyn Homes as our builder.
If you want a personal relationship with your builder, go with Bruyn Homes. It was our first experience building a new home and we were able to develop a close connection with Beth, Fred, and Dirk that lasted throughout the entire process. This really helped us to understand the process and get quick responses when we had questions.
I never imagined in my wildest dreams that we would ever build a house, but after an extensive housing search and no luck, we decided to sit down and talk with Dirk and Fred about potentially building a house. We gave them a list of everything we wanted and very strict budget. On top of that, we were having a child in 4 months and needed to be in the house by the time he was born. Not only did they build us a quality house within our budget, they also had us in two weeks earlier than our contract stated. Dirk and Fred were very knowledgeable and were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Everyone’s first thought is that building is more expensive and I tell everyone the same thing, there is no way I could have bought my house for what I built it for. It’s a beautiful, well-built house with everything we asked for. It’s the perfect house for our kids to call home for many years to come. Thanks Dirk!
The building process seemed like a daunting experience, but after meeting with Bruyn Homes, we felt more relaxed and excited to be involved in the process. We were able to take a well-built home and incorporate our style and preferences. Our agreed-upon timeline was met, and we stayed within budget. We were really involved in each aspect of the building process, and as a result, the moment we moved into our house, it immediately felt like our home.
Dirk Bruyn of Bruyn Homes built our dream home in 2006. We had dreamed of our home for years and had our own plans drawn up. We showed Dirk what we wanted and he built our home to our specifications. We couldn’t be happier with how well it turned out! It’s everything we ever dreamed it would be and more.
Not only did Bruyn Homes build us a top quality home, but also in a very timely manner. We are amazed at how quickly and smoothly everything went! Dirk was a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend anyone to consider Dirk Bruyn to build their new home.
When my husband and I decided to build our dream home, we meet with several different builders. The minute we met Dirk Bruyn of Bruyn Homes, we knew we found the person we wanted to work with. He listened to our ideas and had many different floor plans for us to look at. We worked together to modify the plans to make them work for us. He made the overwhelming process of building a house, completely stress-free. He was always available when we had questions and he made sure we stayed on budget. He builds a very high-quality home in a timely manner. We couldn’t be happier with his work! We would recommend him and his team to anyone.
