When I began Martin Raymond Homes in 1992, I didn’t just create a homebuilding company, I created an extended family. Building a home is an intensely personal endeavor.  It can begin with a cup of coffee and a napkin sketch.  And the next thing you know, you’ve not only given birth to someone’s dream, you’ve begun an enduring relationship.  My extended family has allowed me the opportunity to share the lives of my clients and their children—from birthdays and weddings, to the birth of a child or the death of a loved one.

In the field of homebuilding, the awards are too numerous to mention.  But the most important are not the industry awards, but the client awards. “The Generation Award” is earned when you build a home for the parents and are then entrusted to build a home for their children. “The Repeat Award” is given when you have the opportunity to build a second home for a client. Our current record with one owner is three homes.  I look forward to breaking that record someday.  Of course, peer recognition is always nice, and we have graciously accepted awards for “Best Overall Craftsmanship” and “Most Energy Efficient Home”. We have also appeared in some of the industry’s most prestigious publications, despite the fact that we never advertise. I’ve always believed we are better served assuring the complete satisfaction of existing clients, than constantly chasing new ones.

No matter whether your taste is Traditional, Mediterranean, Modern, French, Tudor, Plantation or Spanish, we have built it.  Indoor pools, elevators, barber shops, indoor spas, bowling alleys, rooms that move, safe rooms, basements, butted glass, cabanas, quarters, and some really impressive attics are all on our resume. The term “custom builder” implies a high level of flexibility and creativity and that is what Martin Raymond Homes brings to the table.  To me, there is no such thing as a starter home.  Whether I’m building the most expensive single-family home ever constructed in Collin County or a bungalow for two, my approach and commitment will remain uncompromised.  It’s the only way I know how to do business.  And it’s the reason I love the business I do.

I appreciate the time you have taken to inquire about Martin Raymond Homes.
