Focused on building detailed, personalized homes, Steve Klein Custom Builder is a respected homebuilder in the Victoria and Georgetown areas. Through careful selection of its employees, craftsmen, suppliers and builders, Steve Klein Custom Builder creates quality homes with comprehensive customer service throughout the process.
Since Steve Klein Custom Builder started more than 27 years ago in Victoria, Texas, the company has built 12 neighborhoods in the area. Currently, they are building in Terravista in Victoria (not to be confused with Teravista in Round Rock and Georgetown), a 200-acre neighborhood with three different product lines for home design.
Nearly 12 years ago, the business expanded its operations into Central Texas by opening a branch in Georgetown. “This year we also branched out into neighborhoods in Leander and Liberty Hill,” says Chris Dodd, sales and marketing manager for Steve Klein Custom Builder. “We currently build in seven neighborhoods in Central Texas and two neighborhoods in Victoria.”
In 2016, Steve Klein Custom Builder
opened in three neighborhoods, including Greatwood in Leander, Sage Creek in Georgetown and Enclave at Northlake. In February 2017, the company will also be operating in Morning Star, a gated community in Georgetown with 34 lots and homes ranging from 1,600 to 2,600 square feet.
In addition to having a variety of neighborhood locations for homeowners to choose from, Steve Klein Custom Builder offers an array of different home types and styles to fit the needs of its residents. “We have over 77 floor plans, so buyers can chose a plan and modify it, or we can design a plan from scratch,” Dodd says. “We can build anything someone would like, from a modern design to a country style to a traditional look.”
In addition, the company has some unique building practices that are not typical for many home builders. These upgrades include insulated walls for sound barriers, surround sound wiring in family rooms, ethernet connections and custom-made cabinets in multiple stains and colors. “Our list of included features for our homes are hard to beat,” Dodd says. “We are constantly improving our plans for livability and design.”
Steve Klein Custom Builder’s personalized features and commitment to an easy building experience for its customers has led to multiple recognitions. The company has won America’s Best Custom Home Builder from National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) twice. Additionally, it has been named the Best of the Best Home Builder in Victoria for three years in a row, and won all 13 categories in Victoria’s Parade of Homes in 2016.
Whether a first-time homebuyer or building a forever home, Steve Klein Custom Builder guarantees a high level of attention to detail and service for its customers. “The Steve Klein philosophy is to deliver to the customer 100 percent of what we promise by properly communicating and thoroughly understanding their expectations,” Dodd says. “We pledge to provide service to our customers on time, in a quality workmanship manner and with a smile!” RL
