About Us - Seven Haus

About Us

Danielle and Daniel Durbin founded Seven Haus after experiencing rapid growth as a duo working under The Durbin Realty Group. They were blessed with the opportunity to expand, and brought on a team of all-star realtors who were eager to grow alongside them. Since then, Seven Haus has expanded to include the Durbin’s custom home building venture, partnering with local builders in an effort to meet the ever increasing housing demands in North Texas. Known now as Seven Haus Custom Homes, they offer both showcase and custom builds for prospective owners and investors alike. Having been sought out for years by the community for a keen design eye, Danielle recently launched an additional branch of Seven Haus, SH Interiors, to enhance the client experience for SH Custom Homes and give a broader audience access to her design offerings via 1:1 video consultations.

Daniel Durbin

Daniel hails from the Northwest, and spent the majority his childhood in Washington state before relocating to Texas. To say he has embraced the culture and Texas way of life would be an understatement. Daniel brings his love for the great state of Texas into all aspects of the home buying and selling experience. A true visionary, Daniel offers his extensive land knowledge and keen sense of development to his clients, helping them make decisions which will not only be best in today’s market, but also in future market landscapes.
Daniel credits his real estate skills to an extensive career in sales. Entering the car business as a porter at the ripe old age of 15, he worked his way up the ranks to evenly hold a number of Sales Manager and Director titles over the years. Additionally, he was consistently awarded Top Sale Person and named No.1 Sales Associate in All of USA with Cadillac for 3 years in a row (2016, 2017, 2018).
In 2018, Daniel transitioned his expertise from the car business to real estate, working alongside his wife during her time of rapid growth and expansion. Together they have become local legends, earning the titles of Top 1% of Realtors in DFW, and 60M+ Annual Producers.
Daniel enjoys spending quality time with his wife and daughter, watching basketball and attending sporting events. Daniel has retained a profound respect for the automobile from his years in the car business, and has a genuine passion for the custom car scene. When he isn’t championing his wife and daughter’s pursuits, or cheering on his favorite teams, he can often be found customizing dream cars for eager clients or pursing his next exciting entrepreneurial venture.

Amy always knew her goal was to embark on a career in Real Estate once her children were grown, and she has done just that. She’s had the pleasure of knowing Danielle and Daniel Durbin for years and upon her return to Dallas, she was thrilled to expand her roll with the Durbin’s and join as a new agent in 2020, learning from the best of the best first hand.
