Veranda Designer Homes is proud to share with you just a few of our favorite testimonials from our family of clients:

Having lived in many areas of the country, and moving relatively frequently due to work, we always knew that one day we would build a home that embodied everything we had experienced, and everything we knew we wanted. But knowing what you want, and achieving it exactly, are sometimes two different things.

After landing in Texas and realizing we were here to stay, we toured dozens of homes by dozens of builders, and what continued to catch our eye, was the attention to detail in the Veranda Homes we saw. We met with several builders to discuss our general ideas, but we knew when we met Betty that we’d found our partner.

From the architectural planning and design, to the sequence of construction, Betty and her team were intimately involved and engaged, and they kept us informed of every timeline and activity during the process. No detail was overlooked, and every decision was communicated and agreed upon during the build.

Our home is of a more contemporary design, and Betty’s ideas and excitement truly inspired us as we went. Needless to say, we knew what we wanted, and we certainly achieved it!

We’ve had many friends over the years say they would never put themselves through a ‘ground up’ build again, but we can honestly say with Veranda, we’d do it again in a heartbeat!

Dave & Theresa Wood

After shopping for over 2 years to find our “Empty Nester” house that we could still entertain our family we came to the conclusion that to get what we wanted to fit our lifestyle we would have to build. Never building a home before we didn’t know where to start. We were most fortunate to find the Cielo Addition with beautiful tree lots and a custom builder who we instantly had a rapport with. Betty Baker and her team listen and create as close to perfect as possible.

With the ideas in our head we started with the talented Jamie Linn who translated our scratch drawing and numerous visions on to paper plans. Making sure our family members with special needs and accessibility issues were accommodated was a top priority for us and a welcome challenge for Veranda Homes. From there the building process with a steady list of decisions to make, Betty Baker and the Veranda Team guided us through the maze of options and brought it all together to create our beautiful home. We did come to the realization that you can’t build your “Dream home” and afford to live in it, but with all the energy efficient features such as geothermal climate control we can live it true luxury affordability.

We have been here over a year and the “New home” fine tuning has been wonderful because they never stop wanting to make sure we are completely satisfied. Would I do it again… actually I would if Veranda Homes is available.

Becky & Gregory Haskin

It’s been 7 months since we have moved into our wonderful new home. Yes it feels like home already, it did the first few weeks we moved in. Lisa and I would like to thank you for working with us to give us the home of our dreams. We have had several new homes and after being here in the 100 degrees of summer and the 10 degrees of winter we have now seen what it is to live in a quality home. No drafts, no whistling doors or clanging water pipes, what a comfortable home! Your team has delivered the best we have seen, thank you.

Almost always when discussing building a new home with friends and acquaintances that have done so, 99% of the time the reaction is “I will never do it again”. We can definitely say that is not the case for us. Sure there are problems and unpleasant surprises but those are expected. I guess the secret to getting through the hurdles is how they are handled. Let me say that you and your team did a great job taking the unexpected and making it work. The project was truly a team effort and we are very grateful to you for taking on the uncharted territory requests and delivering some of the unique building requests we were looking for.

I remember back when we started we were joking and you said I hope we are still friends in a year from now! Well on the contrary we are more than friends we are family. It is always great to see you and the guys and we hope you will be ready in a few years to build our next one!

Thank you so much, not only for the great workmanship (workwomanship) of our home but also for the peace of mind you have given us. We know that we have the best build home available for years to come.

Warmest Regards,
Matt and Lisa Carroll

I couldn’t be happier with my home that Betty and her team at Veranda Designer Homes built for my family! My guests always comment on how unique and well-built my home is – especially the woodwork. Betty’s eye for detail, commitment to quality and unique design produce a truly beautiful custom home at a time where “custom” is hard to come by. Mark’s carpentry skills are top-notch – he can beautifully build whatever Betty (or you) can come up with. Their customer service after the sale is just as impressive. They stand behind their work and will resolve any issues that may arise. They desire 100% satisfaction and couldn’t be easier to work with. Very few people I know who used other builders have a good working relationship with their builder by the end of the project.

After 6 years in my home, I recently decided to make a small pool bath addition and didn’t want anyone else but Veranda on the project. It turned out as beautiful as the rest of my house. More importantly, no one can tell that it is an addition – it looks like it is part of the original plan. They listened to what I wanted, Betty designed it, the team built it, and Betty was with me every step of the way as decisions were made. I absolutely love the finished product, and I STILL love my builder! I know even fewer people who love their remodeling crew at the
end of a project!

As always, THANK YOU Veranda Designer Homes for building a home that also serves as my daily retreat! 🙂

We could not be happier with our home. Betty, Mark and the entire Veranda crew are wonderful to work with. The level of detail, quality of construction and impeccable finish-out of their homes is unmatched. Their homes are “custom” in every sense of the word. Betty kept us involved with every step of the process, ensuring that the end result was a home that was not only beautiful, but completely functional for how we live. They are truly passionate about what they do and are willing to stand behind their product. We highly recommend Veranda Designer Homes.

Patrick and Karen Weber

We had the good fortune of working with Veranda Designer Homes on a remodeling opportunity in our home. The experience was second to none. Betty’s ability to understand what we were looking for and then bring it to life was fantastic. The veranda team met all of their commitments and delivered exactly what they promised. Perhaps the best part of the process was that the entire team was a joy to deal with. I would highly recommend Betty for any project and look forward to working with the veranda team again!

We worked with Veranda Designer Homes to remodel our newly purchased home. Betty and Mark were absolutely wonderful to work with and we couldn’t be happier with the final product of our remodel. The quality of the work and the level of professionalism separate Veranda from any other contractor we have ever worked with. Their approach was very consultative and they provided so many great ideas/options to us throughout the project. We highly recommend Veranda Designer Homes to anyone with building needs. I can’t wait to work with them again!

Anthony & Stephanie Newsome

Betty Baker and Veranda Designer Homes is incredible to work with. We struggled with developing a plan for our kitchen remodel. Betty never gave up and after more than a dozen attempts, the design she came up with was exactly what we had envisioned. Our home doesn’t look the same, yet the layout looks like that’s the way it was always supposed to be when the house was built. Their attention to detail is impeccable. I could go on and on! Do you think we’re happy????

Kim & Ken Kempker

We recently remodeled our entire kitchen and breakfast area (over 800 sq ft.) and Betty Baker with Veranda Designer Homes was wonderful to work with. We began the project without blueprints, and she saved me thousands with her innovative design ideas and years of experience. We absolutely love our kitchen now! She uses quality subcontractors who you can trust to be in your home, and Betty has the highest level of integrity. Betty, thank you for helping to create my DREAM kitchen!

Pamela K. Holt

We were extremely happy with the attention to detail and job site supervision that you and Mark provided during our master bathroom remodel. The quality of the work and level of communication were superb as well. Thank you for doing such a fine job on our project. It was a pleasure working with you and all of the people at Veranda Designer Homes.

John & Dr. Rebecca Lauck

Our family’s experience with Veranda Designer homes was exceptional. Betty and Mark have mastered the people, processes and product aspect of home building.

My wife and I began a large addition to our home, in which Betty’s design concepts and ability to visualize the finished product before starting were key in the creation of our dream. She was able to capture our desires and to add so much more to them than we could have ever imagined. She remained in perfect contact with us during the process and kept us informed throughout.

Mark was onsite all day, everyday. His sub contractors are exceptional, and his workmanship exquisite. Mark not only cares for his craft, but also for his people. On several occasions I witnessed him cooking a breakfast of sausage, eggs, pancakes, and or bacon in the chilly January mornings on the job site, coffee included. Nowhere have I ever seen such attention to detail or true compassion for ones work.

We encountered some special circumstances with health problems in our family during the construction (unrelated to) and they saw to it that the construction did not impact our family in the least, an almost impossible feat, accomplished. The people of Veranda homes truly seem more like family than contractors. If we were ever to build again, we would utilize Betty and Mark without hesitation or reservation.

Jeremy and Kerry Lustig

I contacted Veranda Designer Homes to remodel my kitchen and butler’s pantry. From the start, Betty and Mark listened closely to my concerns and desires. Betty drew up blue prints and guided me through the design process, keeping my budget and ideas in mind. She never pushed me, just offered her expertise. We shopped for everything from countertops, lighting and appliances down to drawer pulls.

When the demolition began, Betty and Mark’s team were here to oversee everything. The work area was left in great shape every day. The entire project took less time than estimated and came in right on budget. I was extremely happy with the outcome of our project.

Betty and Mark have also followed up with me and have been here to address any concerns I have had.

Veranda sincerely cares about their clients and are intent upon providing superior service and results.

My husband and I were recently offered the opportunity to move to the Dallas-Fort Worth area from Montreal, Quebec for work. Having relocated 4 times in 9 years, we were excited to know we would be finally putting down some deep roots and so immediately began the search for our dream home. Imagine our surprise when we found exactly that – the 2016 Fort Worth Magazine Dream Home, built by Betty Baker & Mark Johnson @ Veranda Designer Homes. From the moment we saw this home during our on-line search, we knew, this would be our home. However, we were not prepared for how awestruck we would be when we actually stepped through the front door. Many homes on-line can look beautiful, we have never seen one better than its pictures. Until now. From the overall design & layout to each intricate detail, this is a home you never want to leave. Large & accommodating for every imaginable guest & occasion, yet each room intimate and welcoming.

Even better, our experience in purchasing the home was seamless. Buying a home and moving is stressful. Doing so from another country requires a great deal of cooperation and flexibility. Betty & Mark went out of their way to ensure we received just that. They both spent countless hours familiarizing us with the home, its features, making sure we understood all Smart Home systems, introducing us to their vendors, and arranging & overseeing any finishing touches we wanted to add. No request was too small nor too big and each was met with professionalism, enthusiasm and grace. We had a lot to coordinate with an international move and Betty & Mark worked right along with us to make it a very smooth transition.

Each day as we walk around our new home or enjoy our outdoor living area and pool, we smile. There is no better way to describe being in a dream home.
