Client Reviews & Testimonials

 

  • Lin Mills 

Consider this as rave a review as one could write. If there were more 'stars' available, I would utilize. I am a design professional with 30+ years in the Houston market, and when it came to building our personal home, we chose Allan Edwards. His reputation as one of Houston's premier builders is totally merited. And that dedication to a quality experience extends to his entire staff -- with a special nod to our fabulous superintendent, Ian Funnell -- and the sub contractors that Allan personally curates to work on all his homes. From the moment we first met with Allan, it was clear that he holds great pride and passion for his life's work. He is one of those people who Walks his Talk. Our project was on time, in budget, and without drama! Allan extends a highly collaborative approach to the construction process, and we were kept fully involved every step of the way. We would chose Allan again, and heartily recommend his company. Not only do we thoroughly enjoy our new home, but we have made great connections along the way. Photos to be posted later....


 

  •  Helen & David Delemos: Crestwood

Allan Edwards is a builder who makes his clients home building dreams into a reality.After firing our initial builder, due to poor workmanship and financial mismanagement, we hired Allan to complete our project. We were in the framing stage when Allan started our project. He was patient, flexible, a careful listener and compassionate toward our needs. Allan successfully completed our project with the utmost integrity and honesty. He turned a potentially devastating situation into a great home building experience and completed our home beautifully within our unique requirements. We look forward to someday building another home with Allan. 


 



  • Laury Adams

I love my house and I love my builder, it’s a pleasure to recommend Allan Edwards to others. Allan is one of the most efficient people I know, he provided time schedules and communicated tasks that needed to be accomplished well in advance of the deadline. He sent periodic billing statements so I always knew where we were on the costs of the building. Communication was great with Allan, emails are always promptly answered. If anyone is planning to build, I suggest they make a wish list of what they want in a builder. I guarantee Allan Edwards will fulfill everything on that list.


 


 

  • Mara Henderson, President Imagitek

When I decided to build a home near Memorial Park a few years ago, I spent a great amount of time researching custom home builders. After looking at the work of countless builders, one clearly stood out from the rest. Allan Edwards is best in class among upscale home builders. His work is breathtaking—true craftsmanship—and he has an artist’s eye for detail. In fact, I didn’t even have to build my perfect home—I found the perfect home in one that Allan had recently built. Two years after moving into my new home, I couldn’t be happier with it or the fantastic customer service I have continued to receive from Allan Edwards. Allan has continually contacted me to see if there is anything he and his team can do to assist in any maintenance items in or around my home.I have never experienced this degree of support from a builder after closing!If I ever build another home in the Houston area, I’ll definitely use Allan Edwards. 


 


 

  • Michael & Susana Smith, Memorial

My wife and I chose Allan Edwards to build our dream home in 2008. Before choosing Allan as our builder, we took a tour of homes he built in the Houston area. Immediately,we noticed quality and craftsmanship that was not apparent in other builders’projects. Throughout the building process Allan was professional,knowledgeable, and hard working. If you want to take your home to the next level, Allan Edwards is your builder.


 


 

  • Anonymous (Memorial Villages)

Allan,we are so happy with the new home you built for us. We just spent some time visiting other new houses in Memorial built by other builders, and our home is so much better than anything we have seen. Thank you so very much for doing such beautiful work!


 


 

  • Senator John Whitmire, Crestwood

Due to the quality of workmanship in houses built by Allan Edwards, I regularly recommend him to friends. In fact, I often show houses under construction by Allan for consideration to be bought by friends. It is common for people to stop and ask to tour my house (which Allan built) in an effort to duplicate the quality and design. I am obviously bullish regarding Allan as a builder!


 


 

  • Scott Ballard, 2009 Architect of the Year

Allan Edwards has built several houses for my clients over the last fifteen years. The construction quality was always excellent. Allan is very easy to work with and continues to be one of my favorite builders, in fact when my wife and I built our own personal house we thought so much of his quality that I asked Allan to be my contractor. The project went very smoothly and the finish product even exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Allan Edwards to anyone looking for a quality custom home builder.


 


 

  • Tracy & Cristhel Sue Memorial

Allan is among the most elite Custom Home Builders in Houston and probably the Country! My experience began when I contacted him to build a home for me. He located a lot that wasn't for sale in the neighborhood that was my first choice, and spoke to the owner who agreed to sell the lot. I met with Allan several times to determine who should be my Architect and Interior Designer, based on his vast Experience and working with MANY over the last 40 or so years...He was "Spot On" with as both the Architect and Interior Designer were great.


 

Accordingly, Allan did the same along with his lead team of Dick Davies and Matt McGinley. From the Foundation, The BEST FRAMING Work I have EVER seen bar none, to the completed House...Absolutely Spectacular and would recommend him to anyone wanting Stunning Quality and a Spectacular House!!!


 


 

  • Debbie & Steve Blume Memorial Park

We have built and bought many houses in our lives and have worked with many home builders. Allan is one of the best. We are very satisfied with him as a builder and extremely pleased with his work. Allan pays attention to important details and does not cut corners like many builders often do. His construction is sound and his finishes are high quality; his designs are functional, yet appealing.As a builder, Allan stands by his work. He is motivated by building a fine,high-quality home rather than strictly by his bottom line. He is easy to work with and addresses concerns in a timely manner. We highly recommend Allan as a builder and would use him again in the future. We absolutely love our home!


 


 

  • Donette Dewer & Jim Black

Selecting Allan Edwards to build my home was a very good decision for me as a novice home buyer. The Allan Edwards team patiently educated me on construction matters,adapted to design changes throughout the project, and remained focused on delivering the project within the desired completion time range. Quality workmanship is evident throughout the completed home. This is a builder who stands behind his word and his product. I would use this builder again.


 


 

  • Craig & Sonja Beaty Tanglewood

Allan and his project manager Dick did a tremendous job building our Tanglewood home.Allan was involved even in the design stage of the home. They are extremely responsive and will make sure that everything gets done right. The attention to detail is quite high and we believe that we received a much higher standard of custom home as a result. We were very pleased with the entire building process from start to finish and would recommend Allan highly.


 


 

  • Robert Lyke

We are extremely pleased with our new home built by and the relationship with Allan Edwards. After spending a year designing our home, we considered a dozen and interviewed six builders in the area. We were most impressed with the experience and high-quality craftsmanship of Allan Edwards Builders, and that we would be dealing with owner and project manager on a regular basis, not delegates. 


 

The building process was a very positive experience and relatively stress-free.Communication was clear and constant. The online project management application, Builder Trend, was a great tool to track the progress and know when we needed to make our selections – I looked at it daily.


 

Allan has surrounded himself with a competent team. 

• Dick was absolutely the best project manager, and we continue to enjoy his personal check-ins. 

• Trisha McGaw was absolutely a life-saver and pure delight. We often receive positive comments on our selections and her design ideas.

• The subcontractors were very professional, courteous and pleasant.


 

Allan and Dick were both honest, responsive, creative, paid attention-to-detail, and always acted with integrity.


 

Thank you so much for your integrity, suggestions, quality work, and patience.We wish you continued success building dream homes for others.


 


 

  • Jan & Oniel Mendenhall

Allan,thank you for all of the work you have done for us over the years, including our house on North Blvd and the previous new homes built for us. Your workmanship, experience, and integrity are of the highest level. We would definitely recommend you to anyone wanting a new custom home. 


 


 

  • Bill Swanstrom

Allan,thanks for doing a fantastic job building our beautiful home for us, from start to finish. As I've told everyone who's asked, the best thing is how you and your team care as much about the end result as we do -- and maybe more! You are conscientious perfectionists who take great pride in your work, and it shows in the end result. We have a house that we couldn't be prouder of, thanks to you Allan!


 


 

  • Jason & Kisha Itkin 

Allan, we really appreciate all the hard work you did building our house. We love everything and cannot get over how well the house turned out. We are still amazed by little features we did not even know about. Seriously, we still cannot believe that we actually live here, it kind of feels like we are on a vacation at a fancy hotel (only we don't have to ever check out). You and your team did such an amazing job. 


 


 

  • Sean & Laura McGlothlin

Thanks for building such an amazing house! We had custom architectural plans designed by Brickmoon Design and were looking for a luxury custom home builder. Based on our criteria, Allan Edwards won the selection process based on the quality of homes he showed us. Allan doesn't bait and switch by showing you quality craftsmanship and then have a different crew do the work. He uses the same 'best in craft' folks he's used for years and it shows. Allen is a true builder and made recommendations about our materials like stucco and roof tiles as if he was building his personal house and not our specs. “This will cost x more, but you’ll never have to replace it.” He insisted on quality like copper plumbing through the whole process, but was happy to value engineer with options on things that were just preference. Allan had a dedicated superintendent onsite and yet Allan still stopped by daily for inspections. We even found Allen crawling around in the attic after framing to make sure it passed his personal quality control inspection. “it all starts with great bones”. Allen recommended we move our wine cellar from the entry hallway to the dining room for more 'interest' during dinner and he was spot on. Now, 6 years later, we've had zero issues with the house and love it as much as the day we moved in. If we were ever to build another custom home I know exactly who would build it! Thanks again Allan.


 


 

  • Tracy and Dr. Michael Eklund

Before my wife and I bought a new home in River Oaks built by Allan Edwards, I called five of his previous buyers. The recommendations for fixing any problems was so high I elected to not even have the house inspected. This decision proved to be wise and economical as we've had very few problems. He has taken care of the few things which have arisen in a timely and professional manner.We love our home four years later!


 


 

  • David & Amy MacDougal 

My wife Amy and I have been blessed to live in our home in West University for 5 years, built by Allan Edwards. In the planning stages of the building process,we chose him as the builder of our home, and during the process we developed a respect and trust for Allan and his expertise. Today, the superb workmanship speaks for itself. We are very pleased.


 


 

  • Jesse & Michon Combs, Memorial

I wanted to write you a letter of appreciation for the wonderful home that we purchased from you for our family. I have never seen a builder who takes more pride in their work and customer satisfaction. After closing most builders just move on to the next project, but you and your staff have always been available to take care of any issues that have arisen. Michon and I must have looked at over a hundred houses when we were searching for our new home in Houston, but we always kept coming back to yours! 


 


 

  • Mark & Sendi Mendenhall

Our building experience with Allan Edwards was outstanding. He stands behind his work, his ideas was always a good choice, his contractors were very professional, always did it right the first time, and the house was always clean at the end of the day through out the building process. Every time we tried to get in touch with him, he immediately answered my calls. We have lived in our house for a year now and there has never been any problem that has come up other than a few very minor ones and they were taken care of. If we ever build again, we would want Allan to build for us again. We have had two other builders in the past and did not have the same pleasant experience as with Allan. 


 


 

  • Terry and Debbie Simon West University

We could not have been more pleased with our home building experience. Allan Edwards not only builds a quality product, but truly cares and stands behind his work. Our home was completed in a timely fashion, organized and on budget.He was easy to work with, honest, dependable and creative in making our dream home into a reality. If we were to build another home tomorrow, we would definitely call Allan Edwards.


 


 

  • Robin & Dara Miles 3033 Carnegie West University 

Allan Edwards built our custom house 10 years ago and still checks in with us and helps with referrals and guidance on maintenance and care of the house. He has the utmost integrity, listens to his customer, and truly cares about doing things right and fair. I would use him again and recommend him to anyone building custom home in one of Houston's top neighborhoods. 


 


 

  • Mike and Christina Wilson 327 Terrace

Allan built a custom house for us and we were very pleased that everything turned out the way we wanted. But over and above that, we were impressed by Allan’s integrity. He kept his word on every request and change order we made, and at the end of the project there were no surprises. Thanks to Allan we have an absolutely stunning house, inside and out.


 


 

  • Ken & Peggy Rue, Crestwood

Allan Edwards built our house six years ago and we still love it. He was very easy to work with, hands on and managed his longstanding sub contractors well. He is creative, artistic and provides great recommendations over and above what would be expected. We had a great experience and look forward to having him build us another custom home in the future.


 


 

  • John Pinkerton & Saym Levy, Southampton

Our experience with Allan Edwards is that he is a very competent builder that knows how to manage a housing construction project. He completed our house on budget and ahead of schedule. The construction site was always clean and Mr. Edwards went out of his way during construction to provide a good interface with our neighbors. Rather than underestimate the initial bid as many builders do to ge tthe contract and then make-up lost profit with costly change orders during construction, Allan Edwards quoted a realistic price to successfully build the house in accordance with the architectural plans. My wife and I were very pleased during construction and with the quality and workmanship of our home. 


 


 

  • John & Iliana Haddad, Memorial

When Hurricane Ike damaged our home, Allan Edwards was kind enough to help us rebuilding during our time of distress. His reconstruction effort certainly made lemonade out of lemons. He was professional, attentive to our needs, always available,and had great follow- through. We would definitely recommend him to anyone who is considering building a new home.


 


 

  • Paige & Matt McCarroll,  Tanglewood

We are extremely proud new owners of one of Allan Edwards amazing homes . We were not looking to buy but when we saw this house we were amazed with the exceedingly high levels of quality, uniqueness and overall beauty that it had to offer . Neither one of us had ever seen a house as outstanding! It's absolutely beautiful and Allan, Dick and their team have been so supportive and overly helpful over the last year helping us with any needs we've had since we've moved in. I highly recommend Allan Edwards as a home builder! They are overly qualified and you can trust they will stand by their word and will build you the house of your dreams ! We would like to again thank you Allan and Dick for all you've done for us ! We couldn't love our house any more !!!!


 


 

  • Cristal & Richard Roth

We moved into our Allan Edwards home 18 years ago. We would build a new home with him without hesitation but will never need to because of the high quality of the home we have. Allan was a pleasure to work with, very patient & considerate. 


 


 

  • Brenda Nemzin

Allan built me a beautiful house and the follow through and attention to detail was high quality and timely. The ability to pick every minute detail down to the doorstops made my custom dream home a reality. 


 


 

  • Mary Santina & Peter Andronaco

Allan builds a very good house; ours was an historic district renovation with a new addition and we are very pleased with it. The details are well thought out and there are many special features which we are delighted to have. Allan himself is a true gentleman; he is concerned about what he has built, he is readily available and easy to contact, and will make sure any glitches or "touch-ups" are corrected even well after closing time. We have been quite fortunate to have him as the owner/builder of our house, and we would certainly recommend him as a builder should anyone ask. 


 


 

  • Lesley & Tom Dibello

Building with Allan Edwards has been a dream! This is the second house we have built, and I was really hesitant after the experience we had with the last builder we used. Allan Edwards and his staff are knowledgeable, courteous, and always willing to go the extra mile. My husband and I would never hesitate to use Allan again. However, we love this house so much, we are probably staying put forever!!! 


 


 

  • Bruce & Julia Vincent

Excellent builder who does quality work and stands by it. Easy to work with and has great subs. We've been in our house for over 5 years, and Allan still stands by his work. If building another house, we would definitely build it with Allan Edwards. Worked with Allan while designing house in 2006 and built it during 2007-2008. We had an excellent experience with this project. 


 


 

  • Melissa & Steve Haden

We have been extremely impressed with the quality of our new home as well as the commitment and follow-through from Allan Edwards in the months after the closing of our new home. We would highly recommend Allan!


 

  • Steve & Lynn Trauwein Memorial Park

We knew we wanted Allan Edwards! Glowing recommendations heard throughout our upscale neighborhood had preceded our meeting him. We pursued and finally contracted with Allan to perform a large remodel. As his reputation predicted, he was very professional and knowledgeable with a wealth of experience. He came up with a creative means for sectioning off the house providing workers with their own entrance. Dust and debris were kept out of the living space and there was minimal disruption to our daily lives. Allan and his team offered many helpful ideas and easily solved any unforeseen problems that arose. Allan's Superintendent, Dick, has a sharp eye for detail, a ready smile and a great rapport with the subs assuring work went smoothly and was done well, no cutting corners. 


 

The work exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Allan and his team. 


 


 

  • Mike & Julia Emerson

We are very happy with the work that Allan did on our home and we would not hesitate to use him again. Going through the building process can be difficult at best, particularly when it is a full, historical renovation such as ours. What made our task even more daunting was the fact that we were living overseas at the time the work was being done. However, Allan and his team did a great job on the house, and they did a good job keeping us up to date and communicating with us about issues. In fact, one of the driving reasons that I so am comfortable giving 5 stars to Allan is that he never walked away from an issue or concern that we raised. Every project will have its issues, but what counts for us is how the builder manages those issues. Allan was always responsive and gave us confidence in the work being done. We love our home. 


 


 

  • Jan & Malcolm FitzGerrell, Avalon Place

Hello Allan, please forgive me for not taking time to let you know how much we love the home you built for us!! It is so fabulous and we absolutely love being in it. We are still in a chaotic mess but as soon as we settle in I will write you and also have you come over to see!! Thank you for everything!!! You are awesome!! 


 

  • Dina & Rustom Mody

Allan Edwards built our house over 20 years ago and did a wonderful job. Since we had no problems with the house, we lost touch. Then came hurricane Harvey and we flooded. By the time we realized the magnitude of the damage, it was impossible to find a contractor. One phone call to Allan and he was there in 30 minutes. Took care of the entire project, worked with us on our budget and delivered a house which I feel is more beautiful (images attached). Impeccable work and attention to detail. Allan was our angel in our hour of need. There are good and decent people in this world! Allan Edwards epitomizes the goodness in humanity.
