    Wonderful, easy process, from the day we purchased until the day we walked in. A month later, we are still satisfied. We couldn't have chosen a better place for our family.

  • Natasha C., Happy Homeowner Melissa, Texas

    M/I Homes is a super company to work with. All the representatives were super kind and super loving. I felt that it was a family business. It took the business out of it. It was seamless. I am still shocked a little bit that I am a homeowner. [New Home Consultant] was amazing. I would highly recommend them to anyone I know. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have bought this home. I felt he was very transparent and I felt comfortable. I am super happy that I bought a home​.

  • The Ruiz Family, Happy Homeowners Melissa, TX

    M/I staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They were ahead of the curve. They were almost like family with the way they treat us. They congratulated us. So far, I've had minor things that needed to be fixed and they have been taken care of. I think M/I is a really good company to have build a house. We were shopping and it took us a while to buckle down. It was a very good experience.

    My home purchase process was absolutely wonderful. I would recommend M/I Homes and all those who assisted me to all home buyers.

    Smooth overall process. Love the stream lined options.

  • The Finnell Family, Happy Homeowners Melissa, Texas

    Home buying experience was great! Even partnered us with a realtor to buy our old home without any preparation necessary. Without that we would not have been able to make this move. All involve from [New Home Consultant] to [M/I Financial Representative]. Great experience with M/I.

  • Devarshi O., Happy Homeowner Melissa, Texas

    It is a nice property and nice location. As far as the quality I would recommend them.
