Hi, Stephanie,

Factors to consider are Price Range, Quality of Construction, Customer Service ratings, Options and Finish out available, Schools, Neighborhoods, Home Owner Association Fees, Commute times, Traffic, Tax rates, Financing available, etc.

An active REALTOR will do 30 or more transactions per year, and we run into all the possible snags and problems. None of us are going to publicly disparage one Builder over another. To do so would be unethical.

So, for your individual situation, you are far better off to find a Pro who knows the market, knows the product available in each price range, and can help you to negotiate the best deal. Buying a home, a MAJOR Investment, is not something you should do as an Amateur - you just don't have the experience or tools.

The Builder is going to pay your agent. It doesn't add to the cost of your home except very rarely. They have already set aside that money for marketing. So, find yourself a great agent and let them help you to maximize your value, now and for when it is time to re-selol.

Best regards,

Doc Stephens, REALTOR

I recommend Bill Cox Homes, LLC who came to our rescue and amazing professional remodel on our beautiful Terrell Hills home after a disaster with Adam Wilson Homes.

Adam Wilson's work did not meet code, was not built structurally sound and his own architect and engineer called him out on it. After terminating our contract and being promised to 'fix' anything we had issues with, we received an email from Adam Wilson, "I would appreciate it if you would discontinue any further request for repairs or payment from me or my company." Adam Wilson left us with a $41,000 patio roof that had to be torn down and rebuilt, $12,000 in electrical repairs as well as several thousand dollars in damages; broken electronic gate, broken enamel bathtub, multiple broken windows, etc.

Feel free to look at Adam Wilson's construction examples by visiting our website:

I live and work in the North West side of San Antonio. Your question is hard to answer without knowing things about what you want in your home, size, price range, etc etc.

If you would like a free consultation, I can do that. We can meet at your current home, my office, or at a coffee house.

I can say that my clients have been very satisfied with DR Horton's customer service and product. I am not saying anything negative about any other homebuilder, I am simply stating what my clients have relayed to me. Finding the "right" builder for your wants and needs is really the quesion.

I mainly work with new construction homes and homebuyers in the N.W. area of San Antonio, so I would be more than happy to help you find a home and negotiate a contract with any builder you choose.

Please call me at 210-379-5098 or email me at Whether you choose me to represent you, or another REALTOR®, please don't "go it alone". REALTORS® have the experience and current market information to help you make this very important decision. Good luck to you.

Thank you,

Monica Barrientos-REALTOR®

Dear Stephanie Diaz,

The question would be, which builder would be best for YOU? To determine that, I would need much more information about you. Contact me by phone (210) 744-4502 or e-mail and we will figure that out for you.

Oh man... where do I start! There are some really good ones..

But I need a bit more info:

What is your max price range?
What type of finish-out are you looking for?
Are you looking for a custom home built on land or a home built in a neighborhood?
How soon do you need to move? Is an new inventory home ok, or do you need to build one?
West and NW is a pretty large area, is there a more specific spot you would like to focus in on?

No matter how you slice it.. I'll get you a MUCH better deal than you can get on your own, and I won't cost you a penny! I'll explain how later :)

Give me a call when you can... it's a bit much to type...

But if you prefer e-mai:

Or you can shoot me a text message..
