Working With Our Houston Locations to Build In The Hill Country

Customer Stories

This guest post was written by one of our Tilson families, the Molnars.  Dave and Kelly built their home in Walnut Springs while working with our Spring Design Center.

Let's see, ten acres at the top of the Hill Country? Check. Peaceful surroundings and experiencing a calm and content feeling enjoying sunrises and sunsets on our mini-ranch? Double-check. Finding a builder to make the dream into a reality while making the process as enjoyable and stress-free as watching those sunset colors dance on a picturesque evening sky pallet? That's a triple check once we entered the door and met Tanya Johnsen from Tilson Homes in the Spring, Texas office!

So who are we and why should you listen to us is probably what you are thinking. Well, allow me; My name is Dave Molnar and I'm an airline pilot based out of Dallas. My wife Kelly is a retired Flight Attendant (I bet you didn't see that one coming!) and was based out of Houston. My hobbies are restoring classic cars and flying, while Kelly's hobbies are equestrian with riding instruction and dressage. Basically, she deals with one horsepower whereas I like dealing with many. What's that all mean to you? Glad you asked! It means we're focused on fine details, following procedures and checklists, and concerned about the smooth flow of "the big picture" in ultimately obtaining the main goal. It seems all of those qualities are exactly what Tilson ensures goes into their home builds. Were there hiccups along the way? Sure. Did some things not go exactly as planned? Of course! But what's the real sign of a quality home builder? Very simple. It is how the problems are handled, how the final product is presented, and most importantly, how YOU the homeowner are treated along the way while these issues are fixed. That, in my opinion, is what shows the true character of the company and people you are dealing with. Tilson shined on all aspects of the build from design to reality. Tanya was simply a pleasure to deal with and that transferred right over to Gabe who was our construction supervisor. Both top-notch all the way!

So, yeah, Tilson's great, Tanya's awesome, Gabe was excellent, process easy, sign here, blah, blah, blah. But what could really drive the point home that we were so impressed with Tilson? Well, that'd be telling my parents to build a house right next door to us with Tilson and to top that off, Tanya volunteering to drive from the Spring office to the Waxahachie office so my parents could use her to design their retirement home! Now, that's the type of service you rarely see nowadays. Once my parents decided to relocate from The Villages, Florida to some peace and quiet next to us (Ha! Man, I'm funny), I could think of no other home builder to use besides Tilson and no other salesperson I'd want them to deal with than Tanya.

I hope that gives you a little insight into our experience with Tilson. You know? Since we're on our final descent here in this article, how about a typical pilot announcement to wrap this whole positive experience up? Well, say no more, and here you go!

"We invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy your home build."
