  • Patti and Sandra, Happy Homeowners Manchaca, Texas

    Our home in Bear Creek Crossing is more than new - it means new friendships, strong community and security. Having a home to feel comfortable and safe in. New memories to be made in a beautiful new place.

  • Nick and Chris, Happy Homeowners Manchaca, Texas

    Our NHC in Bear Creek Crossing has made this a great buying experience! She makes everything personal with genuine connections and provides weekly updates. Fantastic construction experience in Bear Creek Crossing! They are quick to respond to questions and is genuinely concerned about providing a great experience!

  • Nick and Chris, Happy Homeowners Manchaca, Texas

    We had a fun experience at the Design Center! Our designer made what could be an overwhelming experience seem fun and simple. She was great at answering questions and providing guidance and input when we needed another opinion!

  • Julianna S., Happy Homeowner Manchaca, Texas

    M/I delivered the home of my dreams. I would definitely encourage others to choose M/I Homes if they are looking for a new home. Marcos and Janell made my experience easy and enjoyable. They were both super responsive and on top of everything.

  • Jose, Happy Homeowner Manchaca, Texas

    Best construction practices and material quality of any home I have owned (this is my 8th). Beautiful homes with impeccable workmanship, inside and out.

  • The Derfus Family, Happy Homeowners Austin, Texas

    New home, new future, new friends! Love our new home and can't wait to make memories here.

  • The Shivers Family, Happy Homeowners Austin, Texas

    I would recognize Janell Gregerson for providing outstanding service because she even gives you more information than you didn't even know existed. I would recognize Kyler Payne for providing outstanding service. He is amazing. We worked with a lot of construction managers and I have never worked with anyone more awesome than him. It was a smooth sailing, easy, no headache situation. Everybody is on it.

  • The Writer Family, Happy Homeowners Manchaca, Texas

    We compared with several other builders in the area, and M/I Homes was the most transparent and hassle-free. Everyone involved seems to be oriented around customer satisfaction rather than trying to up sell what we didn't want or need. The follow through and flexibility from the builder when something didn't seem right was refreshing. They went above and beyond to keep us happy.

  • The Patterson Family, Happy Homeowners Manchaca, Texas

    Having had a career in the military, we moved around a few times. We have rented and bought a few homes over the years, this was our third home purchase. M/I has by far been our best home buying experience. They were honest and up front on what they could, would, could not, and would not be able to do and answered "why" when things were not possible. They did not bury any costs and provided an itemized list of everything one could imagine they would want to go inside their home. I would buy from theses guys again in a heartbeat.

  • Amber S., Happy Homeowner Manchaca, Texas

    I love everything about my new home, new neighbors, and new friends in Bear Creek Crossing.

  • The Sugg Family, Happy Homeowners Austin, Texas

    Overall we loved working with M/I Homes and we love our new home/neighborhood. From the plentiful base customization options available when picking your house finishes to the helpful people making it all happen, we are so happy we chose M/I Homes and Bear Creek Crossing for our new home.
