The Builder synonymous with quality,
innovation, and professionalism has been helping Houston area families create
their dream home on their lot for decades. “With more than 25 years in the
custom home building industry,” said Danielle Marriott, senior consultant,
“David Weekley’s Build on Your Lot program is one of the longest standing in
the city. Our dedicated team members are the most experienced and tenured
around, with the majority devoting 15-20 years to building  custom
homes at Weekley. As a company, we aim to make a positive impact on the lives
of everyone we touch .

Our commitment to focusing on what’s important sets us apart, both as an
employer and as a neighbor.”

Part of the David Weekley difference is the
Build on Your Lot program truly brings the customer’s dream home vision to
life. Buyers can choose from an award-winning David Weekley floor plan,
customize an existing plan, or create their own custom, plan to fit their
family’s needs. They are a builder concierge offering a process that is
turnkey and easy by handling everything for their customers and offering a
wide variety of options to fit every need.

“Our Build on Your Lot program has built over
1,000 custom homes in the Houston area,” said Marriott., “All of our
customers enjoy a variety of options as well as the ability to customize
their home from the start.” 

Weekley’s Build on Your Lot program is
comprised of seven easy steps, which make the process less stressful than
other builders. These steps include finding a homesite, selecting the perfect
plan, determining site costs, arranging financing, personalizing the home,
commencing with construction, and ending with move-in and warranty. 

David Weekley Homes began in 1976 in Houston
with a purpose of “building dreams and enhancing lives.” Since then, they
have become the largest privately held home builders in America, spanning 12
states and 19 cities. The success of David Weekley Homes is attributed to
their passion for their customers, the exceptional homes they build, and
their commitment to team members and the communities where they live and
work.

As the largest privately held builder in the
nation—a distinction that comes with unmatched buying power—David Weekley’s
Build on Your Lot remains a small niche custom home building team with a
streamlined process that ensures a timely and efficient home build. “Most
customers are amazed at how quickly they are able to move into their new
home. Customers also love the fact that David Weekley contracts don’t include
“escalation clauses,” so there is peace of mind knowing the final price is
locked in prior to construction.”, said Marriott. 

Energy efficiency is another David Weekley
difference. David Weekley Homes as has earned a “Diamond Level Builder”
status with Environments For Living, and  builds
energy-efficient EnergySaverTM Homes with an average HERS – or Home Energy
Rating System – rating of 57.

Weekley is one of the few builders who keep
their warranty service in house. Each customer has their own warranty
representative whose sole job is to ensure buyers are taken care of long
after closing. Warranty calls are addressed in a timely manner, giving a
convenient and seamless avenue to address any warranty concerns. “Our
warranties include 10 years structural, two years major mechanical systems
and one year builder defects,” explained Marriott, “which is different than
other builders who sell their warranties to a third party. Ours is kept
in-house to continue our commitment to our customers after the sale.” 

More than 94 percent of Weekley customers say
that they would “definitely recommend” David Weekley Homes to their friends
and family, and more than 40 percent of new homeowners are referred by other
customers, leading to many second and third time David Weekley Home Buyers.
“These are the relationships that make the process fun and make our customers
feel like a part of the family,” said Marriott. 

The David Weekley difference not only
includes great customer relationships, but they work wonderfully with
realtors. Much of their business comes from realtor partners, who are paid a
commission when they refer clients to a David Weekley Homes. The realtor can
be as involved as their schedule will allow. Some agents simply call their David
Weekley consultant and send the client over, while others are involved
throughout the process. 

“We can advise buyers before they purchase a
lot by helping to identify flood plain requirements, permitting concerns,
deed restrictions, and determine lot fit for the plan the buyer chooses. We
have 20 years of knowledge permitting in every part of Houston, so we can
prepare a buyer for any special foundation, drainage, or muni code
requirements before they purchase a homesite,

said Marriott.”

David Weekley Homes takes immense pride in
giving back to the communities in which they work and live through their CARE
program. The program allows not only team members to participate in
philanthropy projects, but their customers and trade partners as well. CARE,
as they define it, is: C – Committed to Building Community Character; A –
Active in our Community; R – Responsible to our Community; E – Enhancing our
Community. With these ideals as cornerstones, team members have made a
difference in the cities where they live and work by volunteering thousands
of hours each year with various local nonprofit organizations. Whether it’s
hosting a blood drive, volunteering at a soup kitchen, or collecting school
supplies for children in need, David Weekley team members are working hard to
bring back a sense of community to neighborhoods all over the Houston
area.
