  • Johnna Hold, Happy Homeowner Austin, Texas
    We looked at as many builders in our area as possible and the second we stepped into the M/I Homes model we knew it was a perfect fit for us. The other builders were offering "upgrades" that M/I was offering as items that were already included in the base price. There was a clean and classic, yet modern feel to what was being offered.
  • The Emerson Family, Happy Homeowners Austin, Texas
    When we saw what options & upgrade choices were available, along with the location, we just knew it was the perfect fit for us. Not to mention the overall open floorplan is amazing!
  • Rene and Lauren, Happy Homeowners Austin, Texas
    Our construction supervisor was incredible. He was overall a great person and very detail oriented. He made us feel very comfortable while building the home. I would also like to recognize our New Home Consultance because he was generally helpful. He always had a positive attitude and always did right by the customer.
