"...Overall, my experience with builder Hal Barrix Jr. was a comfortable, pleasant experience. Hal has a bubbly personality and a sense of humor. Hal made sure we got what we asked for and always extended himself to us if we needed him. I am sure I made the right decision going with Sumeer Homes and was fortunate to do business with someone like Hal. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home and I'm confident they will have the same experience."

"Craig and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how happy we have been working with Jack on the completion of our home. He has been prompt in his responses to our questions and concerns. Jack is always friendly, respectful and polite to both of us. This turned out to be a challenging move for our family, but Jack has been very helpful concerning our new home."
"We wanted to write a letter to say what an outstanding job Lee and Yancy did. They were both wonderful to work with. Lee was right there helping us through the process and always reachable via cell phone to answer all our questions. She was reliable and helped many times with her knowledge about the floor plan and building process. It was a pleasure to work with her from day one.
Yancy did a fantastic job also. He kept us up to date with what was going on during the process. He was reachable at all times and addressed everything that we had added to the contract. He built a wonderful home and everything came together so well. He even got us in on time so our move could go smoothly. He is so organized and knowledgeable that the process went quickly. Yancy is a great builder and it was a pleasure to work with him.
We have built three homes, and this one had to be the easiest and best build experience yet because of Lee and Yancy. They were wonderful to work with and a pleasure to know. "

"My husband and I bought a Sumeer Home. We love our home and it has been a great fit for our family. If Sumeer ever needs a reference from me, please do not hesitate to let me know. Jim's handling of the situation has just turned me into a walking, talking billboard for Sumeer."
“I am writing in reference to the recent purchase of my new home in Le Chateau. Being a business owner myself and being of the mindset that our company is only as good as your employees, I certainly felt the need to bring to your attention experiences I had with a couple of yours.
I’d like to begin by saying that we are the largest provider of concierge services in the DFW area and rated one of the best. Being primarily a service based business….customer service also remains a number one priority when it comes to my personal life as well. I tend to notice and appreciate exceptional service as it isn’t quite as common as it once was.
I think it’s important to point out that I am not a first time home buyer. In fact, this would be the 5th home I have purchased to date and at one point experienced the process of building a new home with an area builder. Although all of those were fairly uneventful I did have an unpleasant experience with a home I nearly purchased prior to moving into Le Chateau. Because of that situation I was a bit leery as I resumed my search.
Upon browsing realtor.com one evening I noticed the townhome I now occupy was available. I chose to show up and walk through during posted “open house” hours so I would not have to immediately communicate with anyone in sales. However, Krish Bhatia did pass through during my visit and offered his assistance should I have questions afterward. Having other appointments, I left and returned later in the day for a second look only to find the house was now secure. So, I phoned the # on the business card Krish provided and he sent Bret Bullard to allow me access once again.
I would not only like to point out but also emphasize that Bret played an overwhelming role in my decision that day to purchase this home. Not an easy task given my reluctance to trust after the recent experience just prior to resuming my home search. Having friends in the home building business and given the high demand for homes this year it’s obvious that anyone in his position would be extremely busy. However, not only did he NOT make me feel rushed during my visit but took the time to fully answer any questions I had about the home, community, and Sumeer Homes in general.
Although it was the 1st home I had looked at, I left feeling like there truly was no need to continue my search…I had found my new home. You could tell he possessed a great deal of knowledge when it came to the home building process but also portrayed a fondness for Sumeer Homes as an employer…all of which left me with a much desired sense of trust. That speaks volumes when deciding on one of the largest purchases you will make in a lifetime.
This encounter with Bret combined with the completion of the sale with Krish made for an exceptional home buying experience! Krish was absolutely wonderful in making my transition a seamless one. He was always readily available when I had questions or needed anything up until the point of move-in. Both Krish and Bret offer a sense of trust, have a wonderful sense of humor and the ability to make you feel “literally” right at home. Both even stopped by periodically during the move to make certain there were no more questions or issues. The few times I did have maintenance issues Brett addressed them immediately and with a willing attitude. I was never made to feel like a bother but instead my needs were treated as important and with the utmost respect.
I have also noticed an incredibly friendly and happy community as a whole here at Le Chateau. Again, I can’t help but think that the team you have in place here played a huge role in that outcome!
I’m happy to say after 12 months in my new home I couldn’t be more excited that I chose a Sumeer home! It turned out to be the most enjoyable home buying process I have experienced to date. I most certainly would not hesitate to recommend Sumeer Homes…especially in a community where interaction and working with Bret or Krish were a possibility.
“When my wife Jessica and I decided to move to the Forney area we enlisted the help of a realtor, during our search we came across Sumeer Homes, Founders Place and Pat New. We looked at the other builders in Founders Place but his smallest floor plan was bigger than we wanted. The multiple plans offered by Sumeer allowed us to find a plan that fit our needs perfectly.
We signed a contract and broke ground in Oct of 2014. Neither my wife or I had ever built a new home before and we were very pleased with the patience and understanding that both Sumeer and Pat showed us. We were able to make some changes to the original plan which made it feel like “our home”. Even with the crazy winter we had, Pat and Sumeer hit all the goals and deadlines that we set and promised. Pat promised to let us now when we were 60 days from closing so we could lock our interest rate, he let us know when we were 45 days from closing so we could list our old house. Our old house sold in a matter of hours and Pat assured us our new home would be ready for us. Even with the crazy winter we had, Pat and Sumeer hit all the goals and deadlines that we set and were promised.
At the end of February 2015, we moved into our new home(in a snow storm), Pat even came by the house to help my wife setup a temporary fenced area for our dogs as I was out of town on business.
I would highly recommend both Sumeer Homes and Pat New to anyone looking to build a new home.”

“Greetings, the purpose of this letter is to let you know what a fantastic job your project manager, Rich Kordsmeier, did for us regarding the recent purchase of our Sumeer home. We are both detail oriented people and had quite a large punch list of items that we wanted done prior to closing our home. Rich did a great job of following through on every item and communicating with us every step of the way. He went way above and beyond what we thought his job description would call for. We really had no other Sumeer contact, but never felt slighted because of Rich. Rich also helped us blend in to the neighborhood by making introductions for us with neighbors. If we were in a position to need to hire a project manager, we would look no farther than Rich!”

“Tommy, Nancy and I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for all of the hard work you did from the initial punch out to making sure that things were done and completed in a timely fashion! It was a great suggestion for us to review the warranties for the house with you. You and Sumeer have lived up to all warranties to date without question.
Please let Sumeer know that I will give them a glowing reference at any time. Thanks again for the assistance!”
Robert & Nancy W.
"My wife and I purchased a Sumeer Home about three and a half years ago. We would like for the world to know that we love our home. Everything about the home is five star rated. The quality, the price, and the service after the sell is unbeatable. You definably get more bang for the buck. We had the house inspected by a home inspector, and he was very impressed. He found zero defects.
We are very happy with our Summer Home, and proud to let the fact be known."
“Roy…I am writing you to personally thank you for your excellent customer service and detailed follow up since the very early stages of the building process. It has been great working with someone that always answers the phone with a kind, prompt and practical solution to my questions or concerns as a first time homeowner.
I am very happy with my new house. To date your teams have been very diligent and punctual with the house warranty and repairs after closing. At this point the 60 day request for warranty service list is almost complete and, so far, my overall experience with Sumeer Homes, Inc. has been very good.
The experience, kindness and knowledge of you and Mr. Andy Khan are some of the main reasons I decided to buy a new Sumeer home in the McKinney, TX area.”
“My wife and I purchased a home through Sumeer Homes in Founders Place located in Talty, Texas. We worked with Sumeer and one of their architects on updating our floor plan. We enjoyed working with them to customize the house to our needs. They were very accommodating and helpful in the process. We love our home and are enjoying the country life out in Founders Place. We would like to say thank you to Pat New as well, for helping to build our home.”

“… I worked with Keaton Creekmore in preparation for the preliminary and final walkthroughs prior to closing on my home. He was very thorough in documenting the issues that I requested be addressed. In addition he worked diligently to resolve them as quickly as possible to allow me to close on my home.
Working with Keaton from a warranty perspective has been very easy as well. I provided Keaton a listing of my items that needed addressed. Within a short amount of time I had received a reply with a breakdown of the items I submitted along with the individual that would be addressing my concerns. In addition those individuals had been contacted on my behalf to make the warranty request. From a warranty perspective I have had a phenomenal experience with Keaton.
Having this level of response has made my residency in Beacon Hill most enjoyable and stress free.”
"After shopping around at other local builders, we knew immediately that Sumeer Homes was the perfect builder for us!. Every interaction, from start to finish, was a positive experience. The Sumeer staff was very accommodating and professional. Although we chose a spec hoe we were able to make changes to the plan to make it our own. They made all of our requests possible and kept us informed every step of the way. We are very pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of our beautiful new home. We have received so many compliments. We would without a doubt recommend Sumeer Homes to anyone looking for a home builder with superior quality and service."

“…. I wanted to take a moment and thank you for everything you did. The house looks fabulous.”
Again, thanks so much!
"I have had a very good experience with you as the Contractor for the builder. So far I have represented two buyers and I am under contract for a third one and you have been helpful and diligent in resolving issues in a timely manner."

"I purchased a Sumeer townhome in April 2015 and I'm thrilled and satisfied with my decision to do so. My builder, Brett Bullard, has been very attentive and always willing to assist me from the very beginning. From my very first walk-through to my 60 day warranty items, Brett has been very informative and has always had my best interest at heart. Brett has a high level of professionalism and is willing to spend extra time getting to know his clients which contributes to his understanding of their needs. I highly recommend Brett and Sumeer Homes to anyone looking for a positive experience when building a new home!"
"Four years ago we built our custom home in Frisco with Sumeer! From start to finish it was an amazing experience. Our builder listened to our needs and requests and made the entire process seamless. The design process was simple with a ton of options to customize during the building process. The Sumeer team is always there to help during the building process and after move-in. I highly recommend purchasing or building with Sumeer Custom Homes!"
"Just a little note to say thank you for all your hard work. As we spoke about over the phone, we love the house, the neighborhood Sumeer built in, and the quality of the work put into the house. I appreciate you always answering our phone calls and helping with the questions we had, and the ones I still call you with!"
“Hey Hal wanted to send you a quick message about Chris Singleton. He built our house in Frisco. He did a great job, very professional and a man of his word. Working with him was a true pleasure. You've got a great guy on your team. Keep up the good work.”
Thanks Keith W.
"Tracy and I moved into our Sumeer home in Garland last August. We met Kenny Lee Barrix prior to closing. He helped us with walk-thru punch lists and concerns.
He amazes us time and again, going out of his way to help. Whether you wave him down in the neighborhood or send an email, he jumps into action immediately responding and getting into solutions.
Just this past week, he connected us to two contractors who then replied immediately. We hit our garage door and broke a panel. They fixed it right away and then Kenny sent out his painters the next day to paint the one panel to match! No charge. That's above and beyond, especially when we know he's covered up with new construction! It's pretty cool when the builder continues to care after the sale.
Kenny and Dan both made the move memorable and worth it!"

We believe we build a quality home, but don't take our word for it. See what others have to say about Sumeer Homes.
