Do your best to rent from someone else.Five star for expertise because hear people know exactly what they're doing. They know exactly how to systematically keep the advantage over their customers.One star for everything else.Debbie in the office never once spoke to me in a friendly manner, despite my attempts to have professional conversation. They refused to fix a fence after a storm knocked down a fence already on its last limb, until I had my attorney send them a letter. They charged me a double deposit and first and last months rent up front. Their justification was that I had a POM on my criminal history.The property was not ready by our move in date by five days, but no proration was done for the first month. I am being charged, however, three times the rate for daily rent because I took two days to give the property a thorough cleaning before surrendering keys to the property.Long story short, these people are not looking out for your best interest and are generally unfriendly people in my experience. Shop elsewhere!

DO NOT SIGN A CONTRACT with this builder! They are corrupt to the core! I signed a contract with them which included earnest money three years ago...they now REFUSE to build my house! I am not the only one with this complaint...they have no regard for their customers and no honor in an agreement.

Who ever drives the work f150 drives very wreckless and all over the road. This person was speeding 45 mph over the speed limit. Very pour advertising on ya'lls part.

Cottonwood Custom Homes
Cottonwood Custom Homes built our unique 5000 sq ft home in the hill country outside Austin. From the earliest planning stages through the final touches on our project, he consistently went above and beyond anything we could have expected to ensure that our home was not only picture perfect, but was exactly and precisely what we wanted. From choosing the perfect build site on our 7 acres to suggesting a loft area to link the kids' rooms, Cottonwood contributed not only solid practical ability in building and managing our project, but also creative and aesthetic ideas that dramatically improved our house. They patiently worked through each of our exacting requirements, and insisted that every worker on the project get every detail perfect. They even went so far as to take over managing the pool construction (at no extra charge, though it was beyond the scope of his contract) when the poolbuilders proved incompetent, just to be sure we weren't left with an unfinished or substandard outcome. This amount of detail and care for their customers make Cottonwood Custom Homes a premier builder.

Having worked with Cottonwood for the past several years, I have first-hand knowledge of the honesty, integrity and professionalism the company displays with each and every client served. The systems and processes that Cottonwood utilizes make the building experience organized and enjoyable for the client as well as anyone else involved with the project. Every time I work with Cottonwood, I know that the project will be finished on time and to the satisfaction of all parties involved.

Neil Lobos has been THE BEST to work with. I have used him to help me purchase and sell real estate. He negotiated an excellent price for me to buy my most recent property AND helped me RESELL that same property months later for a 50% profit! Neil's level of communication and work ethic is top notch and I will only work with him going forward. I recommend him to all of my friends and family.

The worst property management company that has ever existed and I wish I could rate them a zero. Take these reviews seriously. Its unfortunate they have saturated so much of Austin.They have had realtors in our apartment and random maintenance with little or no warning. We pay over $1500 in rent each month, yet have people randomly show up in our apartment several times a week. They have NO respect for your privacy at all.The place is not built well, draws are BROKEN, the wall is cracking, the tree in our back yard must be dead, wood fence around our house is ROTTING. The windows have no locks, just tiny window clips and my neighbor got robbed. Our gas was installed incorrectly so we had cold water for the entire first week. We also have had roaches. When they were showing our property they LOST the keys in the lock box outside and had to change all of our locks. They are so incompetent its baffling. When we first moved in, we signed a lease specifying a different house number than we lived in...the mail man had to inform us why we weren't getting any of our mail... They are so unorganized or just dumb.

My husband and I got to looking at the housing market in early October. The Roman Lopez Team was right there by our side every step of the way. We ended up finding our dream home and our relator Claude Albarran jumped on it for us. As soon as we went under contract, he pretty much became our right hand man when we needed anything. He was there at all hours for us to answer any questions that we had. Even if we asked them twice. He was always professional and overall just a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend using the Roman Lopez Real Estate Team when buying or selling your first or next home.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
