Carrell Homes-the “e” stands for excellence
Then, Now, and Future

Then: A move from Lubbock, Texas in 1970 to head-up a contractor sales position for a large floor covering company was my introduction to the construction scene in Austin, Texas. From the knowledge and contacts I gained, I decided to establish my own construction business in 1972. Since the inception of Carrell Homes, I have actively built quality custom and speculative homes in many of the premier subdivisions in the Austin metropolitan market. I have homes in Rob Roy, Davenport Ranch, Estates Above Barton Creek, Lost Creek, Barton Creek West, Great Hills, Jester Estates, The Courtyard, Lakeway, The Polo Club and Dos Lagos.

Now: My son, John, is an active member of my construction business. Our philosophy is “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right!” And to assure that it is done right, Carrell Homes, over the last 30 years, has cultivated relationships with the best subcontractors available. Honesty, quality work, and attention to detail are the driving forces of Carrell Homes and our “team concept” is a big part of our success.

Now & Future: Carrell Homes recommends that you interview several builders before you make your final builder selection. Take the time to get acquainted. It is essential that both the customer and the builder feel comfortable with each other prior to the start of construction. A trusting relationship can help make the time it takes to create your dream home less stressful and less costly. It’s all about being on the same team.

- A few words from John Carrell.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is gone.”

As a homebuilder in Austin since 1972 I’ve learned a lot about what Austin homebuyers really want.  And I’ve found out what brings the ultimate in satisfaction for them.

The one overriding factor that I’ve discovered is that quality and the quotation of a fair, honest price at the onset of the process makes the biggest long-term difference in the comfort level people have with a home.  As a result, it’s the philosophy at my company for me to meet personally with my customers before building commences to gain a fair understanding of their real expectations about the home and to determine how much the job will actually cost.  That’s one major advantage that people gain when they use my company.  Since I’m personally involved in the talks, my homebuyers can be certain that they’re getting the straight story on exactly what the job will entail.  They’ll get reliable information about all aspects of the construction work—from carpet grades to plumbing fixtures to landscaping details.

Although we are cost-conscious about all the aspects of the homebuilding budget, we are even more concerned with making quality count.  In the final analysis, Carrell Homes is superior to the competition—both in terms of materials and construction.

And at all stages of the building process, the homebuyer can expect personal supervision from me.  By remaining a tightly run, efficient company, I’m able to make this commitment of personal time that benefits all parties.  Of course, the real benefit is that since I’m always available, the homebuyer has immediate access to the ultimate decision maker in the company.

If you are the kind of person who likes to do things right the first time and appreciates having plans made well in advance, you are invited to contact us for references and a personal visit.
