Our Story

We Love Building Great Homes!

There are plenty of homebuilders out there, so why should you buy a home from us versus any of the others?

13166568_lThat’s always the toughest question to answer for any company – especially one that builds homes, because folks expect to be in their home for many years, and they have to know that they can trust their builder to build a home that will stand the test of time.
We have a simple philosophy – Build the kind of homes that we would be proud to own. That means that we have to start with a great design, use great materials, and use only the best craftsmanship when building homes.

We aren’t low-end “production builders” that have to squeeze every penny of cost out of the houses we build in order to make a profit. And we aren’t building extremely high-end homes with gold fixtures and Italian marble floors.

We are in the middle – We build attractive homes, with all the modern amenities, with beautiful materials, colors and finish-out parameters – And we build homes at a price point that people can afford.

We don’t believe that “affordable” means “cheap”. A “cheap” home just provides the bare necessities, without regard to beauty and lasting quality.

To us, “affordable” means that we don’t waste money on frivolous things. We take our time and find great deals on the materials and products that go into our homes, but we stick with the name brands that are known commodities in the building business, so that we can be proud of the homes we build; and so you can be proud of the home you own.

When you invest in a John Hunter Home Builders home, you know that you’ll be getting the very best in:

36402935_lWe have built and/or sold thousands of homes over the length of our careers, and we take great pride in listening to our homebuyers, and what they want and need in a home. That means that we start with a handful of great floor plans that we know match the tastes of our future homeowners. Then we purposely over-engineer our homes to withstand the stresses of our Texas soils, our weather, and the simple wear and tear of having a Texas family live in them. Let’s face it – When you have a few youngsters living in a home, they’ll find lots of ways to “test” the quality of a home, and we build our homes to handle even the most rambunctious “quality assurance tester” in your home.

34209920_lWe’ve been working with the same sub-contractors for many years, and have stuck with the same folks, because they have proved to us that they care as much about the homes we build as we do. We know that each of the professionals we use take great pride in the way they build. From the guys grading the lot, to the foundation professionals, to the framers, to the painters, plumbers, insulation specialists, electricians to the finish trim carpenters and carpet guys – We use the best, most reliable folks in the area, and altogether, they provide us with homes that meet even the most stringent quality standards.

31387253_lIt doesn’t matter how well built a home is – if it’s an ugly house, folks won’t want to live in it. So, in addition to great quality materials, we also have to factor in the looks of the homes. We work closely with our Architects and Designers to create homes that fit our Texas market, and that will appeal to our discerning buyers. So we pay attention to the architectural appeal, sight-lines, colors, and the way things are laid out to make sure they meet the “eye-test”. So you’ll find homes that aren’t “wild”, but that have a comfortable, strong, sturdy and Texas-built appeal. And you’ll love the finish-out, including carpet, tile, countertops, plumbing fixtures, paint colors, trim and all the other little things that make a house a home.

So, when you’re looking at a John Hunter Home Builders home, you’ll find big yards for the whole family to enjoy, covered front porches and back patios, homes that are set well back from the road to provide the privacy everyone in Texas wants to enjoy, big, well-designed kitchens and living areas, tall ceilings, beautiful bathrooms, and two car garages.
