Alfred / Cypress Meadows in Allen, TX
"My experience with American Legend Homes has been top-notch. The entire team is relatable, friendly and caring. They want their buyer to have the best possible experience and try to do all in their power to make this happen. The quality of work is spectacular but so it the way you get treated."

"Overall great experience. Elf was always available to answer our questions and Floyd was amazing at fixing our problems (often before we even knew about them). We love our home and would recommend ALH to anyone building a new house."

"We just became proud owners of an American Legends home in Cypress Meadows this past week. We wanted to let you know about our experience and how much we appreciate the professionalism and care provided to us throughout the process.

We met Erika Klingenberg in June 2015 when we decided to build the model home in Cypress Meadows. Erika has been with us throughout the entire journey. We live in Temple, TX, approximately 3 hours away and Erika scheduled everything to minimize our trips. In fact, she was so kind to send us photos throughout the construction process. Any questions were promptly answered, even on her days off. Erika made us feel that we were the most important people in the world during each encounter and discussions and we believe that those feelings were sincere. She is a wonderful person to be around.

Shane Willows is also a great asset to your team. He walked through the entire construction process with us and ensured that all our needs were met. It was a pleasure working with him in creating a beautiful home. Shane has been prompt and always willing to provide the answers and react to any situation that arose. His actions provided us comfort and confidence, which minimized our trips and truly grateful. The end result is exactly what we had expected.

Your design gallery should not be left out. Brenda Caldwell helped in creating a beautiful interior. Throughout the process, she took the time to send pictures of possible selections. We appreciate her patience, suggestions, and experience in bringing out what we wanted for our new home.

This is our fifth custom home build. We must say that this was smoothest and easiest build. Our previous experiences required our presence on a daily or weekly basis. That was not so with this build. Succeeding in building a home from a distance was due to your team of caring professionals. You have a wonderful team - - hang on to them!"

Sam and Nancy / Cypress Meadows in Allen, TX

"Our new American Legend Home in Lakeside/Flower Mound is exactly what we were looking for!! We wanted a builder who provided quality- construction which was priced competitively and built one-story homes under 3,000 square feet with an open floor plan. We also wanted a unique neighborhood which allowed for a reasonable commute to downtown Dallas. ALH met all of our criteria!

From the beginning to the end of our building journey, we felt ALH provided expert staff members to guide, assist, and build our home. Our sales consultant patiently answered our many questions and continued to be a great resource thru the entire process. The quality of the ALH is exceptional and reasonably priced. We were able to customize our home to our specifications. The design center provided so many selection options and were wonderful in helping us create a home that meets our needs and shows our personalities. They made our selection process fun and less stressful than we anticipated. Our construction manager and his staff took a personal interest in doing a great job for us. They communicated with us regularly keeping us informed. We are very proud of the finished product that we are able to call "our home"!

We highly recommend American Legend Homes as your next home builder!"

Jim and Susie / Lakeside in Flower Mound, TX
"We recently moved into our new American Legend home in the Cypress Meadows neighborhood and would like to communicate with you what a wonderful process this has been. Based on what many friends said, we were warned that building a house was going to be an awful experience. That was not true for us, and we have recommended American Legend as a builder to many people. Our American Legend team consisted of Erika Klingenberg, Nader Baha and Brenda Caldwell. They all three went above and beyond what we expected. They listened well, asked good questions and were looking out for our best interest throughout this entire process. When problems arose, they were quick to resolve them to our complete satisfaction. We cannot say enough positive things about these three people. They were professional, knowledgeable, experienced and had caring hearts. Not only do we have a beautiful new house that we love, additionally we have three great friends in Erika, Nader & Brenda. Thanks for hiring good people who made our home building experience a real joy."
Roger and Susan / Cypress Meadows in Allen, TX

We closed on April 19th and moved into our new house last week in Village Park North. From the start of the process, through the meetings, design center and final walk, your employees were amazing.

Melissa Hopkins, our sales associate was fantastic. She exceeded our expectations. Melissa kept us updated, always responded quickly and she listened any time we had an idea or concern. She was always honest and did a great job of balancing our requests with the responsibility of her job to ensure a win-win. Brad, our builder, also was outstanding. He listened to our many ideas and helped us implement the customization we were looking for, he communicated with us to make sure we were on the same page and delivered us the home of our dreams.

I will gladly recommend your homes to friends and family and wanted to take a few minutes of your time to reach out and share not only our joy in our new home but more importantly, what outstanding associates we had the opportunity to work with these past few months!

Stacy Polk / McKinney, TX

Our experience building our home with American Legend in the community of Stonewater Crossing was absolutely wonderful, from our initial visit to the neighborhood, through the service we are still receiving today.

Our sales associate, Erika Klingenberg, was thoroughly knowledgeable at every turn. She did an exceptional job of answering all of our questions and making us feel comfortable during the entire sales and building process. She was an excellent guide during the entire process, often providing insight, ideas and options that we wouldn’t have considered without her help. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide during the process.

Our builder, Nader Baha, is another shining example of what customer service should be. From the day we met Nader, his professionalism, courtesy and follow-through have been impeccable. During the building process we communicated with Nader nearly every day, often multiple times, and every single conversation, email and phone call was a positive experience. The quality of our home is outstanding, largely due to the great work done by Nader.

Building a home is typically a very stressful experience. We believe that the professionalism and attention to detail shown by Erika and Nader not only significantly reduced our stress, but made the entire building experience enjoyable for our whole family. We would not hesitate to recommend American Legend Homes, and Erika and Nader to anyone looking to build a great home.

Dustin and Christie Arnold / Frisco, TX

While we started with little to no idea about home building, Melissa and Brad both helped us enormously to make the right decisions at the right time without much of a compromise.

Overall, the flow through the home gives us a great feeling. We did shop around with many builders before we made our final call and American Legend’s flexibility around customizing floor plans to fit the client’s needs was fabulous. You both are good Project Managers! We are enjoying our dream home in Village Park North. And big thank you to both of you!

Varna and Vidya Karthik / McKinney, TX
My family and I have been in our new home for two months, and we love it. We have a quality, beautiful home. The process of building with AHL was exceptional. Melissa Hopkins sold us our home in Fairview Downs. She was attentive to our needs. We had many questions and she took the time to address all of them. She got us into the perfect home. The builder Brad was efficient. Our concerns and questions were addressed immediately. Your team gave us a personal experience. Thank you!
The Christakos / McKinney, TX

My husband and I are proud new owners of an American Legend Home in the Arbors of Willow Bay subdivision in Frisco, Texas. I wanted to take a moment and share with you what a wonderful experience my husband and I have had in building our home. We were new to the Texas area and came here with a job transfer for my husband. Our first priority was finding a place to live. That’s where our great experience began.

We walked into a presence of a kind, generous, knowledgeable and very agreeable sales manager. I can honestly say we have never been treated so well! Greg was really enjoyable to be with. He was always busy juggling many things but he always made us feel like we were the only clients he had. Customer Service is such a small concept in words compared to what we experienced with Greg in reality. He was and still is phenomenal! We felt so pampered and spoiled and never knew that building a home could be so enjoyable. All our questions were answered with amazing insight, knowledge, expertise, professionalism and a smile. Needless to say, we picked our plan, picked our lot and signed our contract. Thank you very much for our new home. We are so pleased. Thank you for providing such a competent, knowledgeable and friendly team.

The Swings / Frisco, TX
“There are many choices (builder, floor plan, community.....) to choose from today. Not only did I buy a wonderful home in a great community, the experience of it all was the icing on the cake. I know my family will enjoy our new home not only for the quality and attention it received while being built but for the people who took care of us getting in to our home. It's important for people to get recognition when they do a great job because we usually only recognize someone when a problem occurs for the wrong reason. I hope you find the time to thank your associates as they are truly a strength to your organization. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend an American Legend home to anyone who would ask my opinion. They might not even need to ask, I might just tell them anyway!”
The Cavallos / Frisco, TX
“Simply put, it is more than we could have ever wanted. The detail and quality is amazing. Any time there has been an issue with anything, they are there to make sure it's taken care of immediately. This was a very stressful time, as we were relocating from Boston to the DFW area with two small children. My wife found Stonewater Crossing while driving from a home we were ready to make an offer on. Upon seeing the model home, I knew this was the one for us. Erika was very pleasant and helpful throughout the process, even though there was some indecisiveness on our part, regarding the plan/lot preference. Once we purchased, I was in town to see almost the entire process, and I cannot say enough about the professionalism of Erika and Nader and how well they work together to ensure all questions and concerns are properly addressed. I hands down would refer Erika, Nader and The American Legend Homes Team to anyone!!”
The O'Keefes / Frisco, TX
“Very good materials and very nice design. We are proud to say this is our dream house! Well satisfied!”
The Tonilons / McKinney, TX
“We toured many new model homes throughout the various sections of Castle Hills, as well as older homes for sale. In deciding whether to build or buy older, we decided new was the way to go and focused on American Legend Homes, because of the friendliness of the staff and floor plan options (much better than competition on both fronts!) I was pleased with the transaction and Wren O'Neal and Elizabeth Berglund were great to work with - I can't say enough about how responsive they were throughout the sales process and after I moved into the house. All of my concerns and any issues with the house were resolved quickly prior to closing. Wren met me several times and went through the house at length to make sure I understood how to use everything after move-in. Great home, great builder!”
The Adams / Lewisville, TX
“We want to take this opportunity to express our pleasure and complete satisfaction with our recently completed American Legend home. We were very pleased with the manner in which your staff assisted us and accommodated our wishes and desires concerning the construction. This was particularly true with Nader Baha, our Builder. Nader was constantly working with us to facilitate the many revisions that we made to the basic plan that we chose to build. When we unexpectedly sold our former home earlier than we thought we would, Nader worked diligently to expedite the completion of our new one. He was always very courteous and prompt in responding to our requests and made the entire process as stress-free as possible. He should be commended for his efforts.”

American Legend Homes has consistently achieved outstanding customer satisfaction from the time of the company’s inception. The company’s commitment to continuous improvement has never wavered. Building upon an already strong base, customer satisfaction has continued to improve steadily since we partnered with Woodland O’Brien in 2007 to provide third-party surveying of our homeowners. In 2010, Woodland O’Brien reported our highest rating, and this is what they said about that:

“Buyer reaction to product—your homes, communities, designs etc.—is particularly strong. During the most recent survey period, 100% of your homeowners indicated that “Satisfaction with the Home” met or exceeded their expectation and the feedback is accompanied by continuous accolades: “love home,” “great community,” “superior design,” “great value for the dollars.” Your buyers were genuinely thrilled with the condition of the home as delivered and the product quality ratings are in the top 10% of our clients nationwide with literally none disappointed.
“American Legend Homes has clearly done an outstanding job of meeting the housing and lifestyle needs of its customers and much of the company’s success is a direct result of your focus on customer satisfaction. As a result over the past 2 years, homeowners reported an amazing 98% to 100% satisfaction level with the company’s communication, teamwork, follow through and concern for them throughout the homebuilding experience.”

Keith O'Brien / Woodland, O'Brien and Associates, Inc.
"Prior to and during the construction phase, Matt Watkins (ALH construction manager) informed us of every step and fielded every question my wife could imagine. Matt also followed up by showing us the work that was performed at the various walk-throughs during construction. Matt greatly increased our understanding of the home and bolstered our sense of ownership through including us in its construction. We had a high expectation for American Legend Homes, and Matt exceeded those expectations!"
The Trants / McKinney, TX
"I purchased an American Legend Home and had the pleasure to work with Lisa Smith (sales consultant) and Wren O'Neal (construction manager). Not only was the home finished quickly but beautifully. Wren really took the time and looked at every detail with me. Every little thing I asked for he made happen. My daughter and I just love our new home! In every encounter with Wren and Lisa they were so helpful and caring - it made us feel like we were the number one clients."
The Faulks / Lewisville, TX
"We could not have been more impressed, satisfied, or pleased with the level of care and service that Wren O'Neal ( ALH construction manager) gave my wife and me throughout the entire building process. Wren's level of professionalism and attention to detail immediately subsided any fears we had. From start to finish, Wren made himself available to us on our schedule, and never once made us feel like we were anything but his top priority."
The Crittendens / Lewisville, TX
"The quality and little details were big improvements over the other homes we looked at. We weren't just looking at 'right now,' but also how the home will sell in the future. When you think about resale value and compare standard features and upgrades, American Legend was the best!"
The Goodes / McKinney, TX
"We toured three separate builder's model homes and quickly fell in love with the quality and beauty of American Legend Homes. Each room design was exactly what we were looking for. Their homes have lots of character with builtins, beautiful flooring and an abundance of windows. With three young children, a good neighborhood was also important to us. American Legend Homes' representatives made the entire experience stress-free with their knowledge and accessibility. With American Legend, we still continue to receive the same prompt and helpful customer care we received from the very beginning."
The Baums / Keller, TX
"Every promise made by American Legend Homes has been kept. We were promised a quality home, excellent service, and peace of mind. We love our home, our neighbors, and most of all, the sleep we get knowing we are right where we are supposed to be. Thank you American Legend!"
