Royal Oaks, a Division of Mattamy Homes


We are excited to share that Royal Oaks was recently acquired by Mattamy Homes. We are thrilled with the opportunity that this provides for the families we serve here in the Triangle.  

The Why

It is important to note that Mattamy Homes acquired the company, Royal Oaks Building Group, leading to a seamless transition and uninterrupted operations. One of the many reasons Royal Oaks and Mattamy chose each other was because Mattamy had no local presence in the Triangle and valued the dynamic team of professionals assembled at Royal Oaks. Mattamy literally wanted Royal Oaks’ entire organizational chart, without any restructuring.   

What Does That Mean For You?

No change in local leadership or operating philosophy. All local decisions are made by the same people. Our Royal Oaks founder, Rich Van Tassel, will stay on as the Mattamy of Raleigh Division President. That same scenario applies to all Builders, Managers, Sales Agents, Office Staff -- to literally all levels within Royal Oaks. 

About Mattamy Homes 

Just like Royal Oaks, Mattamy Homes is privately-owned and was founded by an individual who is passionate about building homes and communities, Peter Gilgan. For forty years, Peter has led Mattamy every step of the way and has grown Mattamy into the largest privately-owned builder in North America with over 90,000 homeowners in hundreds of communities. With our acquisition, they currently build about 7,000+ homes a year in the US and Canada. This was a great fit for our company because our stories are very similar and a strong commitment to our customers is woven into the fabric of our company cultures. 

Mattamy prides itself on The Mattamy Way - a holistic approach to home and community design. Through detailed research and authentic conversations with buyers and industry experts, Mattamy truly seeks to understand how you really live, and design homes and communities that enhance people’s lives. As such, they are consistently ranked first in quality, value, and customer satisfaction, and were most recently awarded the JD Power Builder of Excellence Award and the Best Customer Experience in the US Award by AVID.  

As Mattamy Home’s newest US division, we are committed to their vision to be the best homebuilding brand in North America and their mission to provide the best homeowner experience possible. We believe that our homes are the single most important gathering point for our families. Making sure you and your family feel that continues to be our focus.
