Kelly and I felt compelled to write a testimonial about our builder, Metropolitan Custom Homes. We have designed and built two sizable homes over the past 20 years, this most recent one being the third. Two are in Memorial and one in Bellville, Texas at our ranch. In dealing with multiple builders we have learned quick, concise and collaborative communication is essential for a superior product and this is exactly what we received from Metropolitan. As we know in building a large expensive home over a long period of time, many issues will arise and it was comforting to know that our concerns and issues would be addressed promptly and accordingly. Our experience with Metropolitan was stellar and I would highly recommend this custom builder for any discerning clientele desiring a beautiful home, prompt follow-up and more importantly, they kept on budget and timeframe. Thanks to the entire Metropolitan team.
Our experience with John Ogle of Metropolitan Custom Homes came shortly after our home flooded from Hurricane Harvey. We contracted with John Ogle of Metropolitan Custom Homes to put our home back together and to make substantial structural and decorative changes to our home. With John’s help and his crew of skilled craftsman’s he converted our home from a “mess” to our palace were we plan to spend the rest of our lives. John helped us through this difficult time with his patients, creativity, attentiveness, attention to detail and always available.
We are extremely pleased with John Ogle and Metropolitan Custom Homes . We hope we never have to do this again but if we do it will be with John and Metropolitan .
We worked with John Ogle and Metropolitan Custom Homes in 2019 on a number of house projects as we were looking to address a few items that needed attention and update the exterior look of our home. John and his team helped us with new gutters, exterior paint, and a “slurry” or “german smear” on our brick ranch style home. We are exceedingly happy with all of the work and the level of professionalism received. We would highly recommend Metropolitan Custom Homes to anyone. We have received an enormous number of compliments on the look of our home by neighbors and passers by. Five stars!
We built a custom home with Metropolitan and HIGHLY recommend them …. they are very experienced, professional, and organized, building a high quality home. Someone was working at our house every day! We were kept up to date on all details, very easy to communicate with. The job site was always well maintained. Our house was built on time! They also have great follow up after moving in with any issues, all minor for us.
Metropolitan Custom Homes was a delight to work with. They were responsive to our communications, performed high quality work and were always ready to make changes or do what was necessary to get things “right.” We also found their experience invaluable since this was our first time to build a custom home and there were many things that we did not know. One of Metropolitan’s best qualities is their timeliness. They keep the process moving and we never felt like our house was being neglected or that work was not progressing. We also were impressed with the different trade crews that were used to work on the house, the head painter especially was particular that the job was done right. We would definitely build with Metropolitan again.
Metropolitan Custom Homes makes you want to remodel your home just so you can use their services! I contracted with Metropolitan to do a total remodel of my kitchen and Master suite. Mine was a unique situation in which a complete renovation of a home was being handled by two contractors. Metropolitan exceeded my expectations in timeliness, workmanship and professionalism. I have now contracted with them to correct the mistakes made by the other contractor. I recommend Metropolitan Custom Homes without reservations.
We hired Metropolitan Custom Homes/Stuart Beken to build our new, unique home. Our home is built around a 100+ yr old grain silo so it was a bit more complicated than your normal build but Stuart was definitely up to the task. If something popped up that Stuart wasn’t familiar with, he would take the time and do the research, make a call or two, to make sure the issue was handled correctly. Stuart was very involved in the project throughout the almost 2 years and was always available when we had a problem or question. The sub-contractors Stuart had on the project were those that he’s worked with on many other homes which I think is very important. If something wasn’t done quite up to our specifications, there was no problem in getting it corrected quickly. Even though we’ve been in the house since Nov 2014, Stuart is still involved, tying up some loose ends. It’s comforting to know that he’ll stay involved with the project until it is completely complete!
Stuart and his project manager John Ogle (who came into this project towards the end) are both a joy to work with. They know what it takes to get a house built and how to do it! I would recommend Metropolitan Custom Homes for your next project!!
Metropolitan Custom Homes is a fine company that completed our project on time, with integrity, honesty and excellent communication. This being my first build and very concerned with budgeting, I was very pleased to have the owner and his employees understand and work with me at any point needed. The quality and craftsmanship of the home is excellent, with the ability to pick and choose items within a sufficient budget. Building homes clearly has situations that are inside and outside the control of the builder and his subcontractors. I was very pleased that the subcontractors were for the most part respectful and more importantly detailed in their work. With the one subcontractor that was behind the curve, they were dealt with and we were able to move on quickly. The owner and the employees of Metropolitan Custom Homes were very easy to communicate with and almost always available 7 days a week for questions.
There is a bit of blind faith that a homeowner must put into his/her builder and I have to say that I am very pleased that Metropolitan Custom Homes has not cut corners or promise items that did not come to fruition. I give them 5 stars because of the quality, integrity, honesty, and excellent communication.
Metropolitan Custom Homes is one of the best custom homebuilders in Houston. I have never met someone in this industry who is more respected by those he works with and the contractors that work with him. Stuart Beken, the owner, is the nicest guy you’ll meet and has a knack for taking your vision of what you want your home to be and making it happen. I can’t wait to move and build another house, so we can work with Stuart and Metropolitan Custom Homes again.
Would highly recommend Metropolitan Custom Homes. We were interested in building a custom home in the Houston area but was wary of the process and also builders in general. We set out to interview as many builders in the general vicinity and found a very mixed-bag. Some of them were highly arrogant and others somewhat clueless. In the end, we stumbled upon Stuart Beken at Metropolitan Custom Homes. Stuart seemed honest and reasonable and we felt comfortable with him from the beginning. Stuart worked with us to better understand the process and was very responsive to our needs (and our tons of questions) but also respectful of our budget and time. He is very hands-on and pleasant to work with. We are now enjoying our new home and would strongly recommend Metropolitan. Thanks Stuart!
