El Paso, TX, on Nov 08, 2023

Phil was great very knowledgeable. Then as time went on and as I got closer to the end I felt like I was bothering individuals when I had guestions. When I paid for my house I was no longer important to upper management. Carlos one of the workers was very helpful Patrick was great

Many questions not answered. Someone recaulked a small part in my standup shower and the information I received seemed not good for me to buy a new house. I asked the man to help me with setting up my automatic draining system and he said he did not want to because he didnt want to be responsible if he messes it up. The first time one of those foreman came to my house he was happy to help. Not the last guy. Also, some of my neighbors have talked to me about all the warranties and they say that Desert View will only say no to helping. They say you guys find a bunch of loopholes to fix things that need to be fixed before the year ends.

I was promised that the home would be complete in May but then it was delayed until mid July. Also was told the master bath would have the bathtub and shower option but it did not. Then just trying to get the signing date moved by one day was like pulling teeth.

It would be nice if they can keep in touch with us more as a 1 on 1 basis, rather than just sending general emails. It seems like they want just your money and no commitments or follow ups after that. Till they sell the house they are nice, once they get their money, you are a stranger to them. Just because there is no record of something, there is NO HUMAN aspect of genuinely helping the home owner or at least trying to help. Let it be a 1st time Home Buyer or a Home buyer who has multiple properties, they should still extend the same curtosy to all.

Pros: house was done on time with relatively no issues. Professional staff. Nice home, reasonably priced in a nice neighborhood. Cons: Rock wall fence is four feet which does not permit privacy. Very difficult process to raise a wall. Requires approval from each neighbor, the builder's rock wall contractor does the work as well. All this before trying to landscape the back yard due to strict warranty constraints. This is why most people spend more money on a more temporary wood or iron privacy fence.

I can hear the pigeons walking in my roof. You can here down stair what is said ups stairs. The insulation is bad. The cofactor that is only one air conditioning units for the whole house. Keep the house cold up and hot down. I had issues with all the bathroom causing water damage. I cannot complain about Patrick and his team. They went out and fix it promptly… however no one wants to have water damage in a brand new home.

Winfield Model When doing the walk through orientation, please do not start the sentence with “this is a perfect home built my imperfect men”. First few weeks of move in, there was a leak on the 1st floor ceiling, cause is unknown. Plumbers came and replaced the wax seals improperly for the toilet located in the master bedroom. Leak continues to happen until another plumber came by to inspect and replaced the wax seals again. However it continued to leak again. Finally, another plumber came and made a cut on the ceiling drywall exposing where the leak is coming from. Located at the pipe joints. This is a brand new home and contractors wants to perform repairs in a half XXXXX fashion way. Why can’t the problem be fixed the first time instead of wasting time for coming back multiple times? Homeowners have work too and can’t afford constantly leaving the job to go back home. I felt that I have to constantly monitor the contractor’s job because of their half XXXXX work previously.

The purchase experienced was the best quality of the process. It was a smooth transition and with lots of open communication despite being out of state during the process. The sales agent kept me inform and periodically sent updates which, as an out of state buyer you appreciate. The walk-through was also a good experience even via facetime as my realtor had to do that for us. I do like the flexibility from the staff. Jessica was so accommodating and was able to give us a second orientation once we arrived. The dislike is the quality of the craftsmanship. There are a lot of deficiencies that need to be addressed. Too many minor things that were overlooked and although we have a year of craftsmanship warranty, it seems like the finishing touches were rushed and are visible throughout the house.
