"We've been living in our new home for just under a year, and I have to say, we still love everything about it. Every time I walk into my house, I actively appreciate its open concept, climate control (coming from a house built in the 1800s, this part has blown our minds!), and overall aesthetic.
We started working with Homeway in the spring of 2017. Mark, our salesman, was super helpful -- he was always available when we were ready for a meeting or had questions, and he let us move forward with the design process at our pace (super fast). Jason, our project manager, was the same way. He was very easy to talk to and kept us well informed. We very much liked working with just one person who knew everything that was going on through the build!
There were two aspects about working with Homeway I want to address specifically. One: speed and efficiency. I run a ten-acre vegetable farm and so my work schedule is completely insane. We were designing the house in the summer (when I work the most ridiculous hours) so that the house could be built during my off season, and so I just couldn't address every little detail about the house. We made decisions about the big stuff and the things that were important to us, and Homeway handled the rest, which really made it possible for us to actually keep our timeline and for me to run my business, which was in the process of transferring from our old property to the new one where we were building. Once we got our designs ready to go, Homeway got us in the schedule right away, so that the actual building process could take place (mostly) during my off season when I could be present and available. From contract signing to move in was about four months, which was exactly what we wanted.
This takes me to my second point. We had some pretty frustrating problems with our lender. While we were designing, they were going through a merger with another bank. We got caught up in their disorganization, leading to some pretty serious delays on our loan closure. Because of my work, these delays were going to cause some real problems (we didn't want to be moving in at the same time I was planting for spring, because it would have been impossible). So, Homeway very graciously worked with us, spoke with our lender on our behalf, and allowed us to move forward with the build even before our issues were totally resolved. I couldn't be more thankful that they did this for us. It was a huge relief.
All in all, working with Homeway was a fantastic experience. I've recommended them to everyone who's asked about the house. We plan to spend many many years in this home, and we definitely chose the right builder."
