About Highland Homes

Highland Homes was founded in 1985 by brother and sister team Rod Sanders and Jean Ann Brock. With Rod’s keen business knowledge and Jean Ann’s innovative approach to sales, marketing and architecture, 13 homes were sold in the first month of operation during one of the toughest real estate markets the nation has seen to date. Highland quickly grew to become one of the leading single-family homebuilders in the United States. Today, we build over 2800 homes a year in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, Texas. Rod and Jean Ann’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction has earned Highland many industry awards, including consistent high rankings by J.D. Power and Associates, making the top 20 in “The Builder 100 List” and winning the People’s Choice Builder of the Year award for the 6th consecutive time. Though these accolades are wonderful, our top honor comes through referrals from homeowners as well as Realtors who continually sell Highland Homes. At Highland we consider our talented team of associates an extension of our family, and were ranked sixth by Texas Monthly’s 50 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. Highland was built on a solid foundation of core values and guiding principles, an approach that has kept us in business through considerable real estate fluctuation. This long-term financial success is just another reason why Highland Homes can offer security to our homeowners. At a time when many major banks were tightening their lending requirements, Highland secured over half a billion dollars in lines of credit, a strong indicator of stability. As of 2016 Highland is 100% employee owned and still dedicated to providing the best possible homebuilding and home buying experience. You can be certain that Highland Homes remains committed to our mission statement of “delivering homes we are proud of” and ensuring each Highland homeowner realizes their American Dream.

Great place to buy a house

I don't have anything negative at all. We looked at several other builders prior to selecting highland - Perry homes, Ashton woods (I think is what they're called), David weekly, and probably a few more I forget the names - it wasn't even close to the 90ft. highland home floor plans. The height of the houses along with the detached garage, the fact that the standard 90 ft lot was a pretty massive lot, the 13 ft. ceilings were pretty much game changers b/c no one else really offered that. Perry you'd have had to pay 50k+ for a lot, and they're ugly houses (at least the one stories - no way would I pay over half a mil for one of their one stories), and really the same story for the other builders; just ugly houses. As far as the service - it really boils down to Danielle, Brady and Troy. All of these folks are absolute rockstars - Danielle helped us like beyond words in all the nuance questions we had and yeah, was extremely patient with us. Brady's the man - honestly don't know how one could keep up with all the houses and maintenance questions - I don't recall any of the 1 million things we wanted to change falling through the cracks - super good dude. Troy - even at the last minute - when selling our previous house was pushed back a week, he figured out a quick fix for our mortgage on literally the night before signing and still all went seamlessly. Troy also was super patient with all the loan questions we had. I don't know if we'll ever build again, namely b/c it was a long process, but if we did, and highland built some even bigger homes (b/c I mean we're not going to downgrade at this point!), I'd for sure be happy to build with highland again. It's also amazing that I'm writing this review - I don't write reviews, but I'm happy to write one for these folks. I'm sure they know who's writing this too ;) hi y'all, thanks for everything and hope this review gets y'all some recognition. I'm putting anonymous b/c I want them to think about who's writing this haha.
