Associate's Spotlight: Don Craighead Custom Homes
For REALTORS® it is not uncommon to have clients who have purchased the ideal lot, in the perfect area, and now seek your help to find the builder that will construct the home of their dreams. Building a custom home is a huge undertaking, so it is crucial that you choose a company with experience, dedication and the ability to create just what the client desires, so It could be to your advantage to take them to the custom builder that many local top producing REALTORS® have consistently found to be the best for their clients, Don Craighead Custom Homes (DCH).
Since 1923 the Craighead family name has been recognized as a master designer and luxury custom home builder, and still today Craighead homes can be found throughout the most prestigious communities in San Antonio and the surrounding Hill Country areas. As a third-generation home builder, Don Craighead learned the family business at an early age from both grandfather and father and now benefits from that experience as he continues the family tradition of dedication to detail and to providing outstanding craftsmanship. In 1984 Don established his own company and after more than 30 years continues today to be the first choice of homeowners demanding the best in custom home design and construction.
While San Antonio native, Don, and his wife Nell raised three daughters in San Antonio, they also raised a lot of roofs from starter homes in the then far Northside neighborhood of San Pedro Hills to the newer communities of Stone Creek in Fair Oaks, Inverness, Cordillera Ranch, Anaqua Springs and Cresta Bella for over fifty neighborhoods in all. These communities offered opportunities to build homes of many types with a diverse price range, including the estate homes that have become a trademark of Don Craighead homes today.
The San Antonio Medical Centre, USAA, and the IH 10 corridor’s continued growth led DCH to both the Shavano Park area and the Dominion. Don was a building member of the communities of Shavano Creek, Shavano Park Estates, Bentley Manor and Elm Creek. His contribution to the development of the Dominion’s outstanding neighborhoods of the Villas, Cottage Estates, Golf Course Estates, The New Estates, The Vinyard, Adagio, and the Renaissance became a significant part of DCH’s building activities and as a founding member of the preferred builder group in Anaqua Springs Ranch, DCH participated in the first Parade of Homes there, pioneering the establishment of another premier San Antonio neighborhood.
Some of your clients may exhibit an uneasiness or apprehension about the whole process of custom building, especially those for which this may be a new experience. You can help ease their fears by introducing them to the folks at DCH where attention to detail and superb customer service are just some of the reasons they are the first choice of homeowners demanding only the best in construction and design.
