What is the most important step in building a new house from the ground up? Most would say: “Choosing the right home builder.”
Constructing a new house is an enormous and not to mention, a multifaceted undertaking, so it’s important to find custom home builders that you can trust to bring your vision to life.
“It was really important to find a builder that went with what I really wanted and to bring life to my dreams,” said Michelle Baumert. “And it was really important for me to find a builder that wasn’t going to push me in a different direction.”
From the start, Baumert’s mom and step-dad helped in the search to find the right builder for their daughter.
“I sat down with several people and they were either really highly priced or they seemed like they were trying to push me in a different direction, which is what I didn’t want. But then when my mom and step-dad met with Jason and Ernie the for the first time, they were both like, ‘I really like them, so I think you should go with them!’ and so — I just went with my gut,” Baumert said.
Baumert previously owned a home in Spring, Texas. Since moving to the Brazos Valley, she’s had the urge to build her first home, but admits the process seemed overwhelming and intimidating.
“You hear horror stories.” Baumert said. “But with Southwest Homes it was much different. Ernie, Nancy, Jason and Caleb have all been so helpful through everything. I was so stressed out thinking, ‘How am I going to organize all of this and how am I going to know how much to spend here or there, and where can I splurge?’ And Nancy was so wonderful with all of that.”
Meanwhile Mike Grant and his wife live up north and were searching for a custom home-builder to turn their dream home into a reality.
Word of mouth is one of the most critical and valuable tools as a home-builder. It is one of the reasons we take such great pride in the experience our clients have with our team.
