Testimonials From Our Homeowners

  

The people who helped establish our reputation.
Few custom home builders in San Antonio can speak to our tradition of multiple projects for the same clients. In fact, Burdick has had the honor of creating two and even three amazing homes for quite a few of our customers over the course of their home buying experience. Add to that our standout reputation among vendors, realtors, and contractors and you know you’re assured of a custom home experience that’s more than stellar. It’s truly unequaled.

Dear Steve,

 Robert and I would like to thank you and Burdick and Frank for our beautiful new home.  All the hard work and long hours have paid off and we are now able to enjoy all the architectural details in each and every room inside and outside.  We are almost at the point where we can relax and entertain in our perfect house.
None of this would be possible without the help and expertise ofDave Herber, our supervisor of the project.  We would like to extend our appreciation for the excellent service that Dave, Monika and you provided during the building of our house.  The attention to quality workmanship and detail surpassed our expectations.  Robert and I would like to commend Dave for finding solutions to many problems that arose during the building of the house due to architectural design.  He was able to work with the HVAC company to design an HVAC that would work with the many ceiling features we wanted in our home.  He was able to quickly provide solutions for other problems that arose during the build.  Dave was always available to answer our questions and his knowledge of construction put our fears that accompany any new construction at ease.  We could not have asked for a better person to build our home.

Along with Dave, our designer Monika Morris created a home that combined the taste of Robert and I with the style of the home.  Monika listened to our ideas and our wants and incorporated them into colors, hardware, floors, doors, iron work, cabinets, granite, and many countless other design choices to produce the masterpiece that we call home.

Robert and I wanted to express our sincere appreciation for the professional manner put forth by Burdick and Frank.  Throughout the duration of this build, your commitment and integrity was illustrated with your constant emails and site visits, checking on our needs and satisfaction. Robert and I are positive that we picked the best builder in San Antonio when we chose Burdick and Frank.

 

Thanks again for Our Beautiful Home,

 

Dear Damon,
Peter and I would like to begin this new year by extending our sincere appreciation to you and your team for building the retirement home of our dreams! Although we had relocated many times during Peter's career, we had never had the opportunity to build our own home.

Dear Damon,

Peter and I would like to begin this new year by extending our sincere appreciation to you and your team for building the retirement home of our dreams! Although we had relocated many times during Peter's career, we had never had the opportunity to build our own home. Once Peter had decided to retire, we purchased our lot in Corderilla and began our building experience with you and your outstanding team.

We knew from our very first meeting over one year ago, that you were going to be the builder of our choice. Your expertise in Corderilla Ranch as well as your knowledge in building the type of home we were looking for, helped make our decision easy! It was obvious that your attention to detail and craftsmanship was extremely important to you and your reputation as a builder exceeded our expectations.

From our first meeting to the last, you consistently gave us your undivided attention. There were many unknowns to us but you always had our best interest in mind. You kept us in the loop on a regular basis as to what was going to be happening. I was impressed with your suggestions during the selection process (plumbing fixtures, light fixtures, granite, etc.) as I assumed most men did not know a lot about that. Truly, I was mistaken! In addition, you always responded in a timely manner when there was a question/concern and consistently reassured us (me) throughout the process. The relationship that developed between us was based on the fact 
that we trusted you.

Working with you has truly been a first class experience and we would not be honest if we did not include your project supervisor, Jason Hurt and the rest of your team. Jason's top notch professionalism is superb! His attention to detail and working relationship with the contractors was outstanding! Jason always listened to our concerns and treated us with the utmost respect every time. He always treated us as if he were building his own home. He is very knowledgeable, an easy going person and certainly helped make the building process a wonderful experience.

In closing, we love our new home! We never thought we would end up in the Texas Hill Country. Not only do we love the area, we appreciate the new friendships we have formed over the past few months and look forward to creating many good memories! Thank you again for completing the project in time for us to move in before Christmas. We were thrilled to be able to get in a bit earlier than expected! It truly has been a wonderful experience and we simply can't thank you enough!

Sincerely, 

Kathy and Peter Norman

 

To perspective home buyers,
When starting down the journey of building our dream home, Jan and I found out that there were a million things to consider. Our first challengewas finding the perfect development in the TexasHill Country . . . . Read More

To perspective home buyers,

When starting down the journey of building our dream home, Jan and I found out that there were a million things to consider. Our first challengewas finding the perfect development in the Texas Hill Country. Well, we fell into it when we selected Cordillera Ranch. So many pluses placed this location as the #1 premier development in Texas. It was close to a small town for everyday life and close to a big city for such things as top flight medical facilities; these are important things if you are over sixty.
Next comes the selection of your builder. In Cordillera , there is a list of approved builders to help you narrow down that task. We looked thoroughly at the different homes under construction by the different approved builders and in different construction phases. Our findings were clear. My wife saw the beauty that she was looking for on the inside as well as the outside. I found the quality in the structural, electrical and mechanical that I was seeking. Our choice was Burdick & Christofilis Custom Homes.
From day one after signing with Burdick & Christofilis, Damon Christofilis was there. Beginning with four acres of cedar, oaks and rock, Damon listened and guided us through the siting, design and specification process. Taking our thoughts, desires and undeveloped ideas, Damon was able to create drawings and documents that described our dream home. The contract price was fair and the allowances were liberal. We were off and running.
Since I was retired and my wife had one more year to work, all I had to do was oversee the construction of our new home. Simply, an engineer’s dream. I spent two to three days a week for close to a year, watching our home being built. The foundation, stonework, framing, wiring, plumbing, roof, stucco, paint, tile, granite and driveway – WOW, I could write a book with each one of these as a chapter.
My greatest memories will surround Damon’s right hand man, Jason Hurt. I witnessed his knowledge and experience take those specs and drawings and bring our dream house to life. Jason thought like I did; he was detailed and thorough. His working relationship with the contractors brought results that always exceeded my expectations. There was never a time during the process that Jason did not listen to our concerns and treat me and my wife with the utmost respect. His actions were always consistent with the premise, that he was building our home as if it were his own.
Damon and Jason are now like members of our family, that is how close we have become. Their contractors like Stuie, Mike, Paco, Delb, Colorado, Junior and his dad Senior, Doug, Linda, Foy and Mitch are people I now consider as friends.

So for peace of mind that your dream home will be built with lasting quality and beauty, wouldn’t you be missing the boat by not allowing those kind of people to build one for you?

 

Bob and Jan Drawe 
101 Lonesome Dove

P.S. After the closing, Damon and Jason service their product with an Amazing 60 day, 6 month and 12 month scheduled service visit – and I bet you could also call them even after that. That is the kind of people they are.

 

Tanya,
We are sorry to say we are being transferred to Dallas this month.Could you please pass on to Art and Pam what a pleasure it has been owning a home built by Burdick-Christofilis.  Not only have we enjoyed living in the home for over 5 years, we have enjoyed continued support from Damon and Jason Hurt.  When purchasing a home in Dallas, our custom-built home was the standard we sought to replicate.  It proved to be very difficult! . . . .

Could you please pass on to Art and Pam what a pleasure it has been owning a home built by Burdick-Christofilis.  Not only have we enjoyed living in the home for over 5 years, we have enjoyed continued support from Damon and Jason Hurt.  When purchasing a home in Dallas, our custom-built home was the standard we sought to replicate.  It proved to be very difficult!

Upon selling our home, the buyer required two items be corrected before closing--both were handled within a day or two by Damon and/or Jason and both have done follow up to make sure we had all the necessary paperwork in place to get our relocation company to sign off on the purchase and closing.

If we should ever have the opportunity to return to the San Antonio area and consider building another home, Burdick Custom Homes would be the first company we would contact.

Dear Art, 

We have made you and Pam aware of how pleased we were with the superior customer service you and your team have provided in the past, but this letter is intended to highlight an absolutely amazing individual.

Butch Ashworth has talents that many hope to attain, but few ever do.  To this day, we have never seen someone with the ability to turn a situation around, from what seems to be a major problem, to one where  the issue never existed at all.  Recently, Butch jumped in and orchestrated a remedy for a dilemma we had in our exercise room.  The seemingly never ending rains we had this summer took a tremendous toll, and water leakage was discovered in the aforementioned  room.  Without hesitation, Butch responded to our telephone call the same day we made it, came to the house, and diagnosed the problem on the spot.  Not long after that, he had the appropriate people on site with us, and the room was completely cured from the issue that existed.

If that weren't enough, he again came on site (without us asking), during a particularly heavy rain, just to ensure  the leakage wasn't further taking place.  He followed up telephonically several more times during the last month, checking to see that everything was still secure and dry...now that's customer service!

As three time Burdick homeowner's, we have enjoyed a fabulous relationship with Butch...just know that because of his tireless efforts,  the Burdick team continues and will always be number one in our book!

Sincerely,

Creager and Joyce Brown

Dear Ms. Herber,

I wanted to take the time to inform the appropriate person or persons of my thoughts on Mr. Shahab Mohseni. I have had numerous business transactions in my life, which of course, include the purchase of new homes. There are always minor details that need to be addressed, and my new home at 123 Winding Lane, is no exception.

However, I have never had the pleasure to deal with a person like Mr. Mohseni.  His demeanor is always professional, yet affable.  
He always answers his phone, or returns the call very quickly.  When something needs to addressed; I receive a call from the subcontractor
(usually within the hour) and Mr. Mohseni is there to follow up.

I am extremely impressed with the quality of construction of my new home.  Although I have not had much interaction with other Burdick Homes employees, Mr. Mohseni is definitely an asset to your business.

Sincerely,

John Galindo

Steve, Art,

My wife and I are writing this letter to share with you our outmost pleasure in working with you and your team during our most recent home buying experience.
We have moved several times around the world and here in the United States, and by far our working relationship with Burdick Custome Homes stands out as the best experience we have ever had.

New home buying process is usually very taxing during the key phases of the process including the 1) pre-sales, 2) pre-close, and the 3) post-close.
You and your team turned every steps of these phases into a pleasureful experience for us to remember. 
Steve, we want you to know that during the pre-sales, we appreciated your prompt availability and responsiveness to work with us at different point in time at our request. You listened to us with care, understood our needs, and translated that into a win-win relationship. after the sales and during the pre-close, you were always there for us and patient as we needed to make changes in the closing arrangement several times. During the post-close, your team worked with us promtly in the  most professional way to address the fixes and the final touches that we asked for. Specifically, we enjoyed greatly working with Tom Oliver, and are currently have the pleasure working with Butch Ashworth. They did and are representing Burdick Custome Homes with outmost professionalism.

Also we want you to know that we are very pleased with the workmanship and the quality of the construction of Burdick products. It is always my belief that great people stands behind great products. I truelly appreciate the leadership of you and Art that brings the best of the both together.

Finally, we wanted to let you know that we don't look at this home buying experience as a builder/customer relationship........you made us feel like we are part of the Burdick family.

Also, our special thanks goes to Rochelle Nash our wonderful agent from Phyllis Browning who was instrumental in understanding our unique taste and quickly connected us with Burdick toward a record time decision making and closure on our home here in San Antonio.

Thank you for all you do.

Mr. Burdick and Steve Frank, 

We wanted to thank you very much for making our new home so comfortable. I thank Alexia for putting me in touch with Brooke Nelson and giving me recommendations for areas to look in the North Central area, especially, the Pinnacle. We thank Brooke for her time on the telephone as well as personally to help answer all of our questions. She too guided us well as to which areas to look into in the North Central area. Everytime I called the office, Tanya was very helpful.

I especially want to thank Steve Frank for personally meeting with us on a Saturday, when he would normally be off. He helped answer so many of our questions, about your building process. His commitment to the quality of your building process is evident in calling back no matter how late in the day. He and Brooke gave the idea of converting our upstairs such that it would accomodate our growing family. Steve also showed great flexibility in allowing us to input more things in our home prior to closing.

We want to thank Jenks Boston as well, for always following through on closing issues and thereafter, even as we approach 60 days, his dedication to your team is immense.

Overall, our experience with you all is superb, we have never hesitated to refer our friends to you, and will continue to. I look forward to having Steve help build a guest casita in the future. Once again, Thank You.

Sincerely,

Dear Art and Steve:

The purpose of this letter is to express our gratitude and many thanks for the wonderful home built for us at 19802 Messina. We've been in our home for two weeks now and we have been enjoying every minute of it. We would especially like to thank you for the outstanding service we received from your Production Manager, Jenks Boston.

Mr. Boston proved to us early on that he was very skilled and knowledgeable in his job, which made us feel secure in knowing that our home would be built with the quality and craftsmanship normally associated with Burdick Custom Homes. Mr. Boston is the most professional individual we have worked with in the construction business.

We have worked with many people in the construction and restoration business throughout our careers in the insurance industry and we have never come across anyone who combined job knowledge and customer satisfaction like Mr. Boston.

He impressed us many times with his ability to anticipate problems and resolve them before they became major issues. His proactive approach in coordinating all of the subcontractors made us feel very comfortable that the project would move forward without any unnecessary delays.

Most importantly, he was always respectful to us and made us feel like we were his most important customers. What was most impressive is that he consistently called us every few days to see if we had any questions or concerns for him. To us, that was exceptional.

Mr. Boston personifies the reputation Burdick is known for and we are very proud and fortunate that we had the opportunity to work with him on this project.

Once again, many thanks for the new home. If you are ever in the area, please feel free to stop in and say hello!

Sincerely,
Roland and Dawn Rodriguez

Dear Damon,

We have been very busy and are just now finding the opportunity to write this note to you. Basically we wanted to thank you and all of your team for making our building experience with you such a pleasure. As you know, we were living in the UK for essentially all of the period while our house was under construction; therefore, we had to rely on you and your people for quality control, day to day decisions, etc. We made, as I recall, three trips to the USA to check the progress over the approximate 9 months of construction duration. On each occasion we were very pleased with the coordination you extended to facilitate our review and the degree of help received. We enjoyed getting to know you, Sherry, Jason, Linda, Lupe, Paco, Fred, etc, etc during these occasions.

We have been settled in now for about 3 months and really love the house. The quality of the work is excellent. We especially appreciate the efficient after care experienced.. .this really makes a difference and distinguishes your firm. In particular we have enjoyed dealing with Jason who is always responsive, knowledgeable and nice to deal with.

Wishing you and Sherry all the best for the coming Thanksgiving season and hope to see you all soon.

Warm regards,

Bill and Grace Richter

Dear Sirs:

Absolutely fantastic job on our new custom home! It is a particular pleasure for Teresa and I to express our extreme satisfaction with the outstanding professionalism and superb craftsmanship that you and your team exhibited in the construction of our new home at 1523 Cordillera Trace.

From start to completion you exceeded all of our expectations. In terms of dedication to excellence your skill and innovation mark you as world class custom homebuilders. In particular, Damon truly has an uncanny ability to fully grasp the most complex situation - be it a design issue or finding the appropriate sub contractor for a specialized need - and to quickly develop viable solutions. Damon is a phenomenal builder of quality homes - he is truly the best of the best.

In addition, this letter of thanks would not be complete without reference to the superb professionalism of our Project Manager, Jason Hurt. Not only does Jason possess the highest level of superior intellect and drive, he exhibits a steadfast adherence to technical detail that is so necessary when dealing with perfectionists like us. We have nothing but the deepest respect for his integrity and unbelievable depth of knowledge on everything related to building quality homes. In short, Jason should be cloned!

Finally, although I am a law professor here at St. Mary's University School of Law, I served for twenty years in the United States Army's Judge Advocate General's Corps (1979-2000), retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel. I have dealt with all kinds of people from all walks of life and I have never met a more professional, honest and trustworthy group of individuals than the Burdick & Christofilis team. Magnificent job!

Without reservation, we strongly recommend Burdick & Christofilis. We know of no other builder more deserving of recognition. If either Teresa or I may be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to call us at

Very Respectfully,

Jeffrey F. Addicott
Assistant Professor of Law

Dear Art and Pam,


Burdick Homes exceeded its excellent reputation as the premier quality builder in this area when constructing our home. Gary and I have built ten homes, and this is the best experience we have ever had from inception through completion.


Ken Wooley is an outstanding architect. We realize this more every day. Not only did he site the house beautifully on the property, but it flows so easily. It was very comfortable for the twenty three people we had here for the holidays, and it is so cozy for the two of us. He and Damon took our concepts and turned them into a beautiful home.

You chose so wisely when you selected Damon Christofilis as a partner. He did a superior job for us! The subs were all top notch and it is evident that they have a great deal of respect for your firm and Damon. His attention to detail, his insistence on perfection at every step of the way, his availability to us at all times, and his professionalism, skill and creativity are such admirable traits.

Then there is Linda. What can I say except a huge "Thanks!" for a job well done.

We appreciate all the talents and efforts of the Burdick & Christofilis team.

When we were in the process of deciding to build a home in San Antonio while still living in Virginia, one major obstacle was the distance between the two cities! A very significant factor in our selection of your company was greatly influenced by the wonderful reputation of Rosanna Schulze provided by our friends in the Dominion that have built Burdick homes.

During the early stages of the process, we found Rosanna extremely knowledgeable and competent with every aspect and detail of building. She helped formulate our ideas into a plan. She listened to our wants and needs and made appropriate recommendations and suggestions. She established an absolutely great communication channel to the extent that we felt the whole experience of building from such a long distance was easy, fun and the finished house was exactly what we wanted. We put total trust in her because she proved time and again that she was more than capable to do what was necessary to act in our interest while remaining loyal and committed to Burdick Custom Homes.

As the months of building progressed, we found that in addition to finding such a great and competent representative for Burdick Custom Homes, we also found a true and loyal friend. Without Rosanna, we believe that our building experience would not have as efficient and uncomplicated as it was. Largely because of this positive process with Rosanna, we have felt comfortable in recommending Burdick Custom Homes to potential customers such as Dick and Diane Gomez and others.

Art, we truly believe that you have a jewel in your organization and she should be recognized for her continuing dedication, competence and professionalism.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Burdick,
During 2001 we worked with Steve Frank and Brooke Nelson to build a home in Champion's Ridge (9 Caleb Circle). We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with two such dedicated and professional people. Brooke and Steve were both very helpful in giving us suggestions to help us to make all the right decisions both on the design and on the decorating selections for our home . . . . Read More

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Burdick,

During 2001 we worked with Steve Frank and Brooke Nelson to build a home in Champion's Ridge (9 Caleb Circle). We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with two such dedicated and professional people. Brooke and Steve were both very helpful in giving us suggestions to help us to make all the right decisions both on the design and on the decorating selections for our home. It is obvious that they really enjoy and take pride in the fine work they are doing. They have both been very responsive whenever we have called and any concerns we had were addressed promptly. Brooke acted as our liaison with Steve during much of the project and she was marvelous about getting back to us quickly with answers and suggestions. Both Steve and Brooke are great at keeping well-organized lists and therefore being most productive and responsive.

We very much enjoyed working with your company, on this project and we feel that we got a quality product that we would not hesitate to recommend. There is no doubt in our mind that we worked with the best builder in Champion's Ridge. We have received a lot of compliments on our new home, but this does not compare with how much we are enjoying the home ourselves. We just wanted you to know that you are truly blessed to have such a great team in Steve and Brooke representing your company!

Sincerely,

Tom & Karen Banks

Dear Art,

Once again, it gives us the greatest amount of pleasure to inform you of an absolutely stellar member of your team, Mr. Butch Ashworth! Having purchased our second Burdick Home last July of 2000, Butch was on the spot each time we needed service or guidance. I think of one time in particular that was very special to us Art. In fact, you yourself were involved. I was out of state when one our water heaters had broken up in the attic; Not knowing what to do, Joyce called you and you came immediately to the house that evening to stop the leak. The next day, Butch was all over the problem, and personally managed it to the point of removing the faulty heater and replacing it with a new one, all in the same day! Now that is service, Art! Please thank Butch for us for all his wonderful customer service. He always provides me with a smile!

Dear Friends,

Thanks for all the help you gave us in producing a beautiful house that we can proudly call home. We're thrilled with it and already feel quite comfortable. During the process we have enjoyed getting to know you and would certainly recommend a Burdick Home to anyone. Your organization provides superior service to its customers.

The enclosed tray is one that has a lot of symbolism for our family. Sod's mother lives very close to this store. Carol's Dad's truck (which he personally restored) and green Coke cooler were models used in the painting. And of course the Coke logo has become closely intertwined with our family. We hope you enjoy the tray and snacks (Snickerdoodles, Cheese Wafers, Party Mix, and Fruit). Of course we know you'll enjoy the Cokes.

Sincerely,

Carol & Sid Hodges

We have been so very impressed with the quality of construction, uniqueness of design, and attention to detail. Last but not least, we appreciate your customer service representative, Butch. He returns our calls very quickly, has always been polite and cooperative to work with, and has taken care of our concerns or questions efficiently and timely. What a plus he has been to us. 

We were so sorry that we were out of town and unable to attend your buffet. I know it was lovely and we were most disappointed to miss it.

Needless to say, we are very pleased with our home. Your quality and service are an unbeatable combination and we would highly recommend Burdick Homes to any of our friends.

We're still sorry that house number 1 didn't work out, but George is so pumped up after seeing this one completed, Who knows? 
I'm going to begin living here permanently by October 1st. George is going to live in Kerrville until that house sells and we're in the process of changing Realtors, which should help.
Our love to Debbie and the kids and a big "Thank You" for all you time, effort and help!

Dear Damon,

We have been very busy and are just now finding the opportunity to write this note to you. Basically we wanted to thank you and all of your team for making our building experience with you such a pleasure. As you know, we were living in the UK for essentially all of the period while our house was under construction; therefore, we had to rely on you and your people for quality control, day to day decisions, etc. We made, as I recall, three trips to the USA to check the progress over the approximate 9 months of construction duration. On each occasion we were very pleased with the coordination you extended to facilitate our review and the degree of help received. We enjoyed getting to know you, Sherry, Jason, Linda, Lupe, Paco, Fred, etc, etc during these occasions.
We have been settled in now for about 3 months and really love the house. The quality of the work is excellent. We especially appreciate the efficient after care experienced.. .this really makes a difference and distinguishes your firm. In particular we have enjoyed dealing with Jason who is always responsive, knowledgeable and nice to deal with.
Wishing you and Sherry all the best for the coming Thanksgiving season and hope to see you all soon.

Warm regards,

Bill and Grace Richter

While I'm at it, let me sing the praises of Rosanna, too.  We just adore her!  She is so knowledgeable and helpful during the building process.  She made several recommendations that made a huge difference in the look of the house, without most of them costing a lot more.  She is the perfect person to be "the face" that many of your homeowners see first.  Once again, it starts with you.  You both set the example.
Just thought you might want to know about 2 of your awesome employees!

I cannot express enough how impressed I am as to how you handled this project. From the start, you provided excellent personal attention from immediately coming over to inspect the problem to keeping me informed of the status of the subcontractors. I am amazed that you were able to get that many subs to respond that quickly, in a coordinated fashion, to such a small job. When I told others about my problem, their response was "good luck getting subs to come out for a small job". Well, somehow you were able to do it and it speaks volumes to the quality of the Burdick Home name.
Again, I just want to say thanks and I do sincerely appreciate you staying on top of this even though I know you must have more pressing projects etc. It is something like this that validates the decision to purchase a Burdick home. I will certainly make sure that I communicate my positive experience to others. It is nice to see a company in today's business world stand by their product and have a commitment to quality and customer service. Thanks again and have a good day.

Best wishes,

We also wanted to thank you for providing Barbara Burger who helped us tremendously with design ideas, and for Jason whom always seemed to be there when we needed him. Coming from a family of builders, we think that you, Sherry and your entire crew are a rare find in this business.

We wanted to thank you very much for making our new home so comfortable. I thank Alexia for putting me in touch with Brooke Nelson and giving me recommendations for areas to look in the North Central area, especially, the Pinnacle. We thank Brooke for her time on the telephone as well as personally to help answer all of our questions. She too guided us well as to which areas to look into in the North Central area. Every time I called the office, Tanya was very helpful.
I especially want to thank Steve Frank for personally meeting with us on a Saturday, when he would normally be off. He helped answer so many of our questions, about your building process. His commitment to the quality of your building process is evident in calling back no matter how late in the day. He and Brooke gave the idea of converting our upstairs such that it would accommodate our growing family. Steve also showed great flexibility in allowing us to input more things in our home prior to closing.
We want to thank Jenks Boston as well, for always following through on closing issues and thereafter, even as we approach 60 days, his dedication to your team is immense.
Overall, our experience with you all is superb, we have never hesitated to refer our friends to you, and will continue to. I look forward to having Steve help build a guest casita in the future.
Once again, Thank You.
