Ken Kiser | Founder

Ken Kiser is Oak Island new home construction. Having lived on OKI for almost 20 years and over forty years of homebuilding experiences, coupled with dozens of new home construction projects under his belt, Ken has quietly become the stalwart builder that most think of when they think OKI builders. At any given time you can find people tipping a hat, offering a handshake or waving to Ken as he drives down most any street in Oak Island and Caswell Beach.

As one of the leading homebuilders on the island, we strive to make sure that each and every home that we build surpasses the requirements of our customers and each home is a work of art that is to be treasured for decades to come.

Ken Kiser is proud to have build hundreds of custom homes in North Carolina over his career, spanning over four decades. We are most grateful for the relationships that we have built along the way, which is reflected in the generous testimonials that we receive regularly. It is a humbling experience for Ken. His dedication to customer satisfaction is unparalleled and unmatched, whether on Oak Island, or anywhere between Myrtle Beach or the greater Wilmington area.

Whether you are looking for a 1600 sq. ft. vacation rental or a 3000 sq. ft. retirement home, know that at Ken Kiser we will do everything to make sure that you are satisfied with the work that we do.
