Through the process of building, John Houston representatives were honest and always considered our needs.
Our dream of building a new home began in January 2014. We wanted to move out of the city, but wanted to remain in Mansfield ISD. We spent hours searching for the perfect property. We initially contracted with a major builder in the DFW area who had been in business since the late 1950s. With a signed contract, approved building plans and a plan to begin construction, we put our home on the market. It sold in 6 days and we were out looking for temporary housing while our home was being built. The process was difficult and frustrating from the beginning.
One month after we moved to our temporary housing location, the construction still had not begun. On Easter Sunday after church, we decided to pray over the lot as a family and ask for God to either take it away or lead us to the right builder. The following Wednesday the builder advised that they were unable to meet our needs (i.e. build our home) and returned our earnest money, leaving us basically homeless. The next weekend we spent with a realtor looking for a new home which lead us to John Houston Homes.
John Houston’s sales representative, Erin Miller, was WONDERFUL! She helped us find the perfect home, on the perfect lot, remaining in Mansfield ISD. We decided to make an offer on a home under construction in the Cabot Estates Subdivision. On the morning our offer was submitted, we again prayed over the lot with the same prayer, that this decision be God’s will. That afternoon we came to an agreement and the next day we signed a contract with John Houston homes which is when we found out that John Houston’s staff prays over every lot that God bring the right people to buy their homes! We knew from this moment that God led us to our forever home.
Through the process of building, John Houston representatives were honest and always considered our needs. Most importantly the quality and level of detail that our Superintendent put into our home exceeded our expectations time and time again. Our lot offered more than one unexpected challenge, but the John Houston team worked hard to resolve the issue to meet our needs. We love our John Houston Home!
