Our Clients Say It Best

  • Sue Says:
    "I built two homes for my daughters, right next door to each other in a gated community on the west side of Houston. The houses cost approximately $539,000 each to build. Also, we put berms in the yards and mega plants and trees. We put in the sprinkler systems and we had to add a grinder pump. None of this was in the budget numbers. The culvert was not in the budget either.There were tap fees, road usage fees, etc. I had the soil tested within the footprint of each house to be sure it was compacted properly. I also had the concrete tested from each delivery truck to be sure the proper psi was achieved before I would let them pour... They were so worried I would refuse a concrete truck that doesn’t have the right mix. The houses are sitting on foundations that far surpasses the requirements. All of these costs plus others I can’t think of right now are included in the $539,000."
  • Steve M. Says:
    "I want to thank UBuildIt for all their help with helping me get my house built. I couldn’t have done it without you. You made the whole building process seem so easy and definitely saved a lot of $$$$. Till next time! Cheers!"
  • Steve - Clear Lake Shores Says:
    "Words simply cannot express my appreciation and gratitude! In a world of countless compromises, it is refreshing to deal with an organization with the attention to detail, level of professionalism, and a commitment to excellence that UBuildIt has. Add integrity that is second to none and one has the recipe for an organization that is destined for stellar success. Thank you!!"
  • Rose Says:
    "Thank you again for all of your help throughout the process. We couldn’t have done it without you and Dallas!"
  • Joe Says:
    "Dealing with UBuildIt was a great experience. They were helpful in finding an architect and subcontractors, setting a budget, and keeping my project on target. Building on your own is time consuming, but their assistance was invaluable. Before the house was finished, our needs changed, so we sold it for a nice profit. I have now built a second home through UBuildIt, that I am also selling. I have now gotten my real estate license, and became a full time Realtor."
  • Ron Says:
    "UBuildIt is a unique residential construction model where the homeowner is the project manager, site superintendent, and has many GC functions. Essentially UBuildIt provides the sub network, the bank interface and consulting/expertise as needed. The Houston Franchise is owned by Mark Jeffrey. For those willing to give it the time and take on the learning, this approach works. The Houston UBuildIt team resources are top notch – thanks to Mark, Annette and Paul for all the expertise, mentoring and patience along the way!"
  • Stephen Says:
    "All UBuildIt personnel conduct themselves in a most professional manner and their insight has saved me both time and money. The staff is always patient with me and never tire from answering my almost endless questions. When a representative from UBuildIt says they will be somewhere or do something, they do it!"
  • Steve Says:
    "We built our home with UBuildIt and it was a great experience. I just can’t say enough good things about it. The only real issue we encountered was when we went our own way and hired a subcontractor outside of the UBuildIt network."
