Frankly being a Realtor for 30 years and having homes built for myself and my family. I have had the opportunity to work with many builders personally and vicariously through my real estate clients. You can imagine my experiences. The woman crying, the husband saying "Dianna, do something". If you've built or remodeled you already know many builders tell you how interested they are in your happiness and how easy they are to work with, and then the horror stories begin.
Yes, every builder is interested in building a house. If you are like me, my family, and my clients, we are interested in building a home. It came as a surprise to me that there was a builder that actually cared about me, my family and about our home. I know it doesn't sound right, after all, every builder should care. Do they? I know one that does. Terry Hernandez of Lakeside Additions cares. He takes his time to explain what is happening. He watches the budget and keeps us informed. He shops for the best prices to save us money. He goes above and beyond our expectations. He has truly treated us like his best friends.
Building can be an emotional time for the entire family. You ask yourself, "Am I making the right decision?". "Is there a better color, a better tile, a better design?" With all the second guessing I have experienced through my real estate clients, their frustration with builders they chose, it's almost magical the way Terry works. Just when you think you should give him a call, he calls you. Just when you think he didn't hear how you wanted to move the electrical box, it's moved. If we ever build again you can rest assure Terry will be the person we use.
