We are fortunate to have seven custom new homes in Austin under construction now, with the opportunity for even more projects in the near future.
I am often asked: “How does Sterling Custom Homes remain so busy in such difficult economic times?”
My response is simple – We are blessed. We are blessed to have earned the trust and confidence of so many great people over the years. Since our inception in 1989, we have always strived to treat our clients with the highest level of integrity and professionalism. Doing the right thing is not always the easiest, least expensive route to take, but our clients have come to appreciate the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their builder is focused on meeting challenges head-on and making the tough decisions with their best interests in mind.
In this difficult economic climate, we have also found that clients are more diligent in researching and choosing their builder. The risk associated with hiring a builder with financial issues far outweighs any perceived cost savings. Our clients are smart, they do their homework, and this market reality drives more business to our company. Read More→
