Luke & Blue’s builds custom homes to meet a variety of lifestyle needs in South Walton County, FL from Dune Allen Beach to Seagrove Beach along scenic Highway 30A.
In exchange for the ability to forge his own path to success in the homebuilding business, the owner of Luke & Blue’s, Deron Strickman, left the corporate world in 1995 and began to build. Despite being a graduate of Boston University’s School of Management and having a background in international sales & marketing, Deron learned how to build a home from the ground up with his own two hands and has since perfected the process for his clients.Founded in Memphis, TN, Luke & Blue’s originally specialized in building affordable single family homes as investment property. After 10 successful years of building in Memphis, Deron relocated Luke & Blue’s to Santa Rosa Beach, FL in January 2005. Since that time, he, along with his well-qualified team, has built the Luke & Blue’s brand by being hands-on and directly involved in each client’s project. By being included from the start, Deron is able to ensure that every aspect of the Luke & Blue’s homebuilding process is held to impeccable standards. After more than 16 years of building both primary custom beach homes and vacation homes, Luke & Blue’s is widely recognized as one of the area’s preeminent custom homebuilders with unparalleled attention to quality construction, detail, and customer satisfaction.
Ask Deron what it’s like to build and he’ll say, “It’s a wonderful feeling to meet or exceed our customers’ expectations throughout the process of building a custom home. Seeing the sparkle in their eyes and their gratitude for a new home designed and built just for them is the reason I still enjoy building custom homes.”
Luke & Blue’s looks forward to continuing to deliver outstanding service to its clients. They build a select number of homes each year with clients whose vision they share so that they can work together to make their client’s dreams become a reality.
Deron earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University’s School of Management with a major in Marketing and a concentration in International Sales & Marketing. Deron holds both a State of Tennessee General Contractor’s License and a State of Florida General Contractor's License. He is a member of The Estuary Board of Directors, a member of the South Walton Small Business Association Board of Directors, a former member of The Estuary Architectural Review Committee, a past President of the South Walton County Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association and a former Board Member of Goodwill Homes Community Services, Inc.
