Since 1998, Garner Homes has been designing and building homes in San Antonio, Boerne, and throughout the premier neighborhoods of the surrounding Texas Hill Country. Each home we build is as unique as the home owners themselves. Every Garner Home is designed with the exquisite craftsmanship and commitment to customer satisfaction that our team of experienced professionals has embraced and insisted upon since we founded the company.
The very first time we met with Jennie Briggs, Trey Garner and the remainder of the Garner team, we knew we were dealing with a professional organization that took interest in building OUR home. The process of building can be overwhelming, even though we had built custom within the past five years. We quickly overcame any anxiety and had absolute trust that the individuals comprising the team had our best interest in mind . The team helped us with understanding the cost implications of our choices. The Garner team always provided more than one option for our decision making. We very much enjoyed the construction process of our home The one question we found to ask is not how many homes the builder has completed but more importantly how many homes is your superintendent managing. After asking this question we were pleased to hear not only was the Garner team highly experienced but their managers supervise 3-4 homes at a time. We found that this allows for the superintendent to be on site nearly daily, which is one the most important aspects of building - and that is who is managing the trades. Not only was the project managed efficiently by Louis Beck, he has the behind the scene support of one of the most talented and artistic individuals in the home construction business we have ever met, Amy Henderson. She provided detailed project coordination ensuring the superintendent was in sync with selections and timelines. We not only received a beautiful home, but a well-engineered, solidly performing home. We would do it all again with this team, no surprises, no budget busters and most of all peace of mind. Priceless!
Garner Homes operated with openness and integrity from the first meeting. They have an excellent team and we enjoyed our experience very much. We enjoyed the planning phase greatly, and benefited from the accurate budgeting and thoughtful scheduling. We have built five homes previously and working with Garner Homes was the best experience by far. We love our home and absolutely recommend Garner Homes whenever we are asked.
We hired Garner Homes to build our home in 2015 and could not have made a better decision. From budgeting to building to post-construction care, they are systemized, methodical and personable. We were provided access to volumes of information in all phases, which suited our style of decision-making. Working with the architecture, interior design and construction teams were collaborative and they always provided great counsel. We were able to rely on Trey and his associates often for the “If this were your house, what would you do?” advice. They were responsive, transparent, committed to excellence and finished our home as originally scheduled. The quality of their workmanship is high-level, and during the construction process, when something wasn’t done to their standard, they worked until they were happy with it. Their high expectations were absolutely aligned with ours. The web portal, Garner Homes’ online project management tool, streamlined communication and provided instantaneous and ongoing interaction. We were able to track every detail from selection decisions to the schedule to the overall financial picture of the project at the click of button. The entire experience, end result and post construction communication exceeded our expectations, and we remain great friends with the Garner Homes team. We love our Garner Home and would not hesitate to build with them again. Without hesitation or reservation, we strongly recommend Garner Homes.
This was our fifth custom home to build, and this experience was the best we’ve had yet. We wanted to design and build something different that pushed the envelope in Cordillera Ranch, and the Garner Homes folks were enthusiastic about that. It was a true collaboration that even included bringing materials in from a friend from Colorado! The budgeting was done early and we felt comfortable making decisions because we understood the costs as we moved through design and construction. The difference was the Portal. With this tool, we felt like there would be no finger pointing, as to who dropped the ball, etc. It was wonderful and helped us feel comfortable during the 'long distance' process. We felt like we were always in the loop and never hesitated to ask questions or make comments or criticisms, if needed. The end result is one-of-a-kind. We love our home - it is a perfect reflection of us and we are so glad we hired Garner Homes to build it.
Communication is key in any relationship, especially when building a home. Garner Homes' team communication is outstanding. All partners they utilize, whether the design team, the cabinet maker, appliance supplier, lighting experts - they were easy to do business with and had a consultative approach. They listened to what we were trying to accomplish and provided solutions we couldn’t have reached on our own. Garner Homes utilizes an online project portal - this communication tool used in every facet of building a custom home was my Bible. It was easy to use, and it gave Heidi and me the ability to review what was posted that day and act accordingly to approve, question, disapprove, ask for alternatives etc. We lived 1,000 miles away during the build and this portal made the distance seem like nothing. It helped us be a part of the project on a daily basis. Our team took pictures for us at every juncture along the way. This was outstanding and helped us feel like we were there on site. Looking back- the Garner Homes team started as just our builder - they finished being an outstanding builder and maybe more importantly - a friend!!!
The Garner Homes team was attentive, gracious, and helpful. They left nothing undone and were always thinking ahead. They were responsive before, during, and after the completion of our home. We recommend Garner Homes and their team professionals to anyone who values the “extra mile” effort, sticking to their word, and standing beside their product.
I can't brag enough about our homebuilder, Garner Homes!! We have lived in our new house for one year. They are now doing the One Year Punch List. This is totally separate from the punch list we turned in after we moved in. Those items were done long ago! They came in this morning and started blue taping anything they saw which was not to their excellent standards and are in the process of making sure everything is perfect! What a team! Unbelievable 5-Star Service! Thank you to Trey Garner, Jennie Mullins Briggs, and the entire awesome team! The Bowlings LOVE you!
