Our Client Testimonials

Dear Larry,

Seven years have passed since we collaborated with you and together created our lovely home. It just doesn't seem that long ago. We're sure that, at some point, the excitement of our "new" home will wear off.

Although it has been seven years, we just wanted to let you know that we hadn't forgotten how much we enjoyed working with you, Barbara and Robert during the planning and construction of our home. Beginning with our fist consultation, it was clear that we were working with someone who was not your typical builder. The open, trusting relationship we developed with you was more like a partnership, and the result was a terrific, unique home that continues to be very special to us.

More importantly , we have enjoyed our relationship with you over the past seven years. Consistent with your approach to the planning and construction of a home, you continue to care about your homeowners and your homes long after the work is done. Like a parent, you remain interested in how your homes are doing and take a great deal of pride in knowing that your homeowners are extremely satisfied.

Larry, we wish you continued success and look forward to seeing many more "Larry Skelton Homes" springing up throughout the Bellaire area.

Warm regards,

Keith and Catharine H.

Dear Larry,

Karen and I would like to express to your our profound and sincere appreciation for everything that you did to help us realize our dream of building a custom home. It is truly the home we dream of.

We are firmly convinced that the success of this project was entirely attributable to you. It was your honesty, integrity, conscientiousness, and professionalism that first inspired us to venture the formidable custom-home-building tribulation (we had previously resigned ourselves to the less-intimidating search for re-sales and specs before our serendipitous encounter with you in 1998). It was your amenity, diligence, patience and magnanimity that made the entire 18 months that we worked together on this project a distinct pleasure. It is all of these qualities that you possess that distinguish you, not only from all the builders that we have ever met or heard about, but from most everyone else that we have known. Of course we would also like to extend our warm and sincere thanks to Barb, Robert and Tommy who were icing on the cake. We greatly appreciate their dedication and their hard work on this project. They are worthy representatives of your good will. We will continue to laud and magnify your name to our friends and colleagues.

Most sincerely,

David C. and Karen M

Dear Larry,

As we approach our one-year anniversary of living in our new home, we thought it was about time we wrote and thanked you for doing such a wonderful job building our house.

Building a house is meant to be a dream come true and a pleasurable experience. You made it just that. We know so many people who have built homes, and everyone seems to have a horror story. We have nothing but good things to say about the construction of our home, and we truly believe that it's all from having the right builder -- you.

Your knowledge of the business, your attention to details, your interest in trying to deliver what the homebuilder wants, your wonderful foreman, Robert, and your personal pride in your work, all combine to make the perfect builder. You made what is a very complicated process very simple and enjoyable for us. We truly appreciate all that you did -- from helping with the plans, to keeping us within our budget, to getting the job done on time. We had a wonderful Christmas in our beautiful home, even if we didn't know how to turn on the showers in the guest rooms.

Larry you're one of those rare people that exists these days - the kind whose primary objective is leaving their customers thrilled with their product. We would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone considering building a home.

Thank you so much.

Yours very truly,

David and Becca F.

Dear Larry,

Please use our name at any time as a reference. It will be our pleasure to recommend you to others as the outstanding builder in Bellaire, and for our money in all of Houston.

We are very happy with our house. We get compliments on it all the time. Even strangers stop by to ask about it.

You not only build a perfect house, you make the experience a joyous one. From our very first meeting until the present every conversation with you has been a pleasant one. You have explained every option clearly and recommended what was in our best interest, not necessarily what was in your best interest. You always told us the whole truth. You even went out of your way to do things for us that were not required by the contract.

You have the knowledge, the experience, the integrity and the personality to be the perfect builder. In our opinion, that is exactly what you are.

Best wishes for continued success.

Dear Larry,

We purchased our "Larry" home in November 1990 when we saw it during a Bellaire home show. We are thoroughly happy with it and Larry Skelton in every way.

After returning from two years overseas, the house met all our needs. It is large & roomy and in an excellent community. The house is thoughtfully designed, well constructed, and elegantly finished. Larry has been quick to remedy the few problems that have occurred, even well after the first year's warranty expired.

It was the second house that Larry constructed, and he was diligent in soliciting our comments on ways it could be improved. We've often looked at his homes during shows, and it is apparent he continues to exceed the high standard he set in ours. Larry has been charming and helpful with our settling into the neighborhood.

He has helped us in innumerable ways. For example, after we had already moved in I asked Larry who could put in some additional bookshelves in the attic room. He arranged a first class job at cost. Three years later he helped us choose a painter. Larry absorbed the cost for some minor trim repairs the painter identified.

I recommend both his homes and him without hesitation.
