Purchase Experience Testimonials from Real Homebuyers

Frisc, TX, on Sep 27, 2022

[name removed] provided a great buying experience. Our builder was phenomenal to work with. [name removed] was on point and meticulous, which is something that we appreciate going through the new build process for the first time. We bought a new and used house in the past but never one in the early stages of development. [name removed] and [name removed] were great at updating weekly, and we felt like part of the process despite being thousands of miles away.

It has been good. We have a couple of items we need to add to the warranty list.

I really liked the people ([name removed] and [name removed]). Without them, the scoring would have been considerably lower. Didn't like the mortgage process or the situations that [name removed] and [name removed] had to communicate to us. We relied on Greenbrick when it was the most critical and I was trying to lock, I lost out on my lock and interest rate because of [name removed]'s departure. [name removed] did the best he could to pick up the pieces. Furthermore, the lack of skill by some of the trades pushed our home out even further due to construction issues and costed me more money on my loan through Greenbrick. I understand that [name removed] did not make as much money on our home as they could have with the material and labor price increases, but we did everything on our end contractually. There was no consideration given to the fact that we were delivered something less than agreed upon in terms of time and quality. This is not our first home build. I know things happen but the fact that I still talk positively and refer the other builders is because of their management's response to unforeseen issues, similar to those we experienced in our [name removed] build. It was a tough time for everyone I know but management could have done better there if you are asking.

Constant delays during building phase with missing light fixtures, noncompliance with safety guidelines (missing egress from bedroom window), and lack of attention to detail (e.g. tile work is crooked, chipped, and sloppy). We have had to hire contractors or re-do finishes on our own because we’re told that it’s within “acceptable room for error.” Our contractor who also works as a senior construction manager for another builder disagreed that this work is acceptable. Outsourcing is common in construction but [name removed] should really review the quality of the work being performed, there should at least be internal standards that should be enforced across the different communities that they are building at. We are very unhappy about our purchase experience, will definitely not recommend to anybody and will be expressing our views across other social media sites.

My wife and I really enjoyed the knowledge, experience, professionalism and warm welcome [name removed] shared with us throughout our beginning process. She was always available and responsive. It was heart breaking to us once we learned of her replacement. We missed everything about her throughout the reminder of our home build. Someone in Southgates upper management made the wrong decision letting her go. Her loss was felt on our end and added a level of stress on our shoulders. [name removed] was absolute amazing. He really did a fabulous job as construction manager. It’s unbelievable the level of professionalism, knowledgeable and patience he exudes as a Construction Manager. His performance throughout the building process reflected his ability to multitask and follow every detail through. He is absolutely amazing at his craft. His positive and calm professionalism was comforting. He really put all of our dreams into action and for that my family and I are truly grateful. Thank you Sir

Going back on a signed contract by an agent made me lose on precious time. That was unprofessional.

Homebuilder Customer Reviews

No one knows more about a homebuilder's quality and service than the builder's customers.

Since 1984, Eliant has been independently evaluating the performance of homebuilders across the U.S., Canada, and the Middle East:

  • We ask recent homebuyers to evaluate their builder's purchase process.
  • Then, we ask homeowners to evaluate their builder's quality and service (1) after the first 5-months in the home, and (2) again at the end of the first year.

In "Homebuilder Customer Reviews", we present the ratings and comments collected from new-home buyers at these three points in time.

Eliant verifies that only evaluations completed by actual customers are included in this "Homebuilder Customer Reviews" site. No other evaluations - whether collected by the builder or those appearing on other public sites - are included here. All customer comments are included verbatim, no editing is permitted.
