    As a full time Realtor in the Houston area, I show many new homes. The Sandcastle home in Skyline Park Village was the very first home that my clients and I saw. After each of our 8-10 showing days, we ended the day at Skyline Park Village each time. No matter who was there to assist us, we were given the same attention each visit. Whether it is Tessa, Rachel or Bobby, we felt the same attention to detail and the team effort from each of them. In addition the online attention was great as well with Meagan too!

    After almost two months my clients decided to purchase the very first home that we saw in Skyline Park Village. After meeting with Tessa and Mike Saloman to negotiate a deal, we were extremely pleased with our purchase. We immediately scheduled our inspector to come out and his report was the best new construction inspection report that I had ever seen! This was impressive and my clients were excited to hear this as well. Now we were in the home stretch and we met Jeffrey for our walk through. As soon as he introduced himself it was clear that he was just as good as the rest of the team.

    On Friday October 30th we finally closed. This was the first new home sales transaction that I have experienced in which someone from the seller side actually attended with us. Mike Salomon was there to meet us. The title company, Charter Title, did an outstanding job as well. Jim Wolf and Annell James continued the smooth process and even provided lunch for all of us.

    It is very important to give my feedback with Sandcastle Homes because I ask everyone that I work with to provide feedback to me. My clients rated me a 5 out of 5 on all aspects of the entire transaction. I was not only working for my clients, I was working for two other sets of clients as well. Russell & Carey were referred to me by Orlando and Orlando was referred to me by Jarrett & Renee. Referrals are the future of my business and a company like Sandcastle Homes continues to ensure that my referral business is successful.

    Thank you again for one of the best transactions that I have been involved with since 1999. I will do everything that I can to refer clients to Sandcastle homes and I will definitely share my experience with them whenever the opportunity exists.

    I feel like I’ve made a lot of friends on this deal and I hope that they feel the same.

    Respectfully,

    I want to thank everyone at Sandcastle Homes for makeing this transaction one of the smoothest most well organized sales I have had in years. Most importantly my client is “over the moon” with her new home! The communication from first showing until the closing was awesome. I knew the first minute I stepped into this unfinished home the quality and attention to every detail was very evident. Our meetings with the builder was pure joy and our first walk through was basically a no brainer. I brought my blue tape thinking we would be there for a few hours…not so! Walk through was easiest walk thru I have done in 25 years of selling homes. This was a very fast transaction and everything worked due to the builder, title company, lender and of course the Realtor working together to make this happen in a very short time. I could not recommend this builder more confindently…they are in a word AMAZING! We are all very happy and looking forward to a very Merry Christmas and wonderful 2010! Thanks to everyone!
    Why can’t all builders work like this????Fabulous product, great service and follow up and just went that extra mile!

    I have sold several homes built by Sand Castle Homes. My experiences have always been positive. The company, particuliarly Mike Salomon, was very easy to work with. They were good to the buyers and were attentive to their needs. I look forward to working with them in the future.

    My recent sale with Sandscastle was smooth sailing from inception to the closing. The staff at Sandcastle was gracious and accommodating. Mike Salomon, has tremendous people skills and a man of honor,
    a listener and doer. He was always available for inquiries and handled requests with follow-thru and speed. It was entirely a hands-on transaction, and I would recommend this builder and his company to anyone considering his product.


  • Dear Mike,
    After viewing many homes over the course of five weeks my client saw several that she considered purchasing. But when we saw your home in Timbergrove Gardens, she knew that was THE ONE! I appreciate the integrity and quality of your work and the personal service you and your team provided to us through this home buying process. As a realtor, you made my job much easier. I look forward to building an alliance with you and Sandcastle in the future.

  • I was very happy with my business with Sandcastle Homes. Mike was personable yet professional. He did what he said he would do. The most important thing was that my clients were so happy beginning to end and that made it all the more wonderful. Thank you Mike and Sandcastle Homes


  • SHARON SELINE WRIGHT says:

    As a Realtor covering the Greater Houston area, I have had a wonderful experience working with Sandcastle Homes. From start to finish, my clients have been treated like a King and Queen. Stephanie absolutely rocks in the way she handles everything calmly. Kudos to the entire team, but huge KUDOS to Stephanie for her well above standard work!

  • Sandcastle was the most effecient builder I have worked with. Everything went according to plan and was right on schedule.
    I was ery impressed and so was my client.


  • Phyllis Peak/Prudential Anderson Properties says:

    I just sold another Sandcastle Home a few weeks ago and once again had a very pleasant experience with Mike Salomon and his staff. You cannot find a better home for the money in the Inner Loop of Houston so I am very excited for my clients. Mike takes his time to explain each and every detail of the contract before asking your buyer to sign and I truly appreciate this about him. He is patient and one of the most considerate builders that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I will continue to show his homes to my buyers as long as he is building the same quality that he always has. Great resale! Build more and faster Mike!


  • Rae Lynn White says:

    I think I have the distinction of selling more new Sandcastle homes than any other realtor — and I love it! I really think Sandcastle has an incredible product — and it’s so easy for me to promote them, because I believe in them! And what makes it all so much better even, is that they are excellent to work with — they do what they say they will do, and I know that my buyers will have an excellent experience — not the frustrating type of experience that usually comes with buying a new home. Thank you, Mike and Mike and all your building crew for being such excellent people to work with!

  • Chris Boyles says:

    I have to start with saying that I think Sandcastle Homes is one of the best builders in the Houston area. I have personally sold 4 Sandcastle Homes to my clients and everyone has been very pleased with the customer service and the attention to detail their staff offers. Everyone in the office is great to work with and is very understanding to my buyers needs through out the build process and after the home closes. They offer a product that stands out compared to most builders that a lot of buyers I think under estimate when it comes to the different options inside the loop. It is very hard to find a 2 story home that offers a driveway and a decent size back yard, when most of the new construction is 3 stories, no drive way, and an side alley if any back space. These homes always do well in resale because of these features they offer and will continue to do well in the future. Buying a Sandcastle Home is buying name brand in my opinion that you can count on quality construction and will be around when most fly by builders will be out out business. I highly recommend them as an option to all my buyers looking to be inside the loop.


  • I had the pleasure to work with Mike Salomon and his staff on a transaction in December, 2013 on W. 20th Street. The process was very streamlined and effective and served for the mutual satisfaction of all parties. My client, an experienced Professional Engineer and his wife were and continue to be very pleased with their new home and received all the information they requested. It is a pleasure to engage a conscientious and responsible builder with an equally serious and knowledgeable purchaser as was done in this situation. The lady who we met to go over the house from Sandcastle is a very intelligent professional who took the time to clarify concerns and questions. I was very impressed with her knowledge in the home building process.
    Mike, I look forward to doing more business with you in the future and wish you continued success. I enthusiastically endorse Sandcastle Homes.

    I just closed with Sandcastle and they did a wonderful job! Mike, Lynette and Jeff were all fantastic to work with and were so efficient. I wish every builder in Houston worked the way these guys did. They had a timeline for everyone and stayed on target. This was the first new construction home I have done in the past few months where the builder came to inspect and the house was actually ready! Everything went smoothly, and it was a breath of fresh air. I look forward to working with them again in the future and will gladly recommend them to everyone!

  • Agent McGee says:

    When advising my clients on new construction purchases I am always looking out for resale value and rate of return. My clients have never gone wrong buying Sandcastle homes. Mike is not only meticulous about the quality of his product, but two story floorplans, with a yard, resell extremely well in the inner loop market. His homes represent beautiful craftsmanship as well as common sense investment value. I’m proud to have helped multiple clients buy and resell Sandcastle homes and will always be proud to have my name on them.


  • My buyer and I have had a wonderful experience with Sandcastle. From contract to walk through, we have been pleased. I’m not sure what her formal title is, but Stephanie (project manager maybe?) is very knowledgeable, helpful and she works hard to make sure everyone is happy.
    What a pleasant experience!


  • My Buyers and I were actually “combing” the streets in the Heights! We saw this sweet house and called on the sign… The builder actually answered!
    We sat down with Mike that afternoon and put contract together.

    Lynette in the office immediately sent out a schedule to all involved.

    Steven the superintendent did a great job on the “punch list” and was truly trying to make a pleasant experience for all!

  • Anne Hill says:

    In 12 years working with relocation clients with Coldwell Banker I have had the pleasure of closing 3 homes with Mike at Sandcastle Homes. He is always pleasant and professional. He listens to my client’s needs and requests and always tries to accommodate them. He is very conscientious and works with a great staff for a smooth customer experience. Having worked for two builders I can honestly say he is a hands on builder too. He doesn’t just pitch the sale and disappear. He is very conscientious! This shows in the quality of his homes. Realtor friendly is important to me too as I like to be involved in the process with my buyers as well as the builder. I highly recommend Mike and Sandcastle Homes!

  • Charlie Neath says:

    On a whim I pulled into Sandcastles offices on a Saturday afternoon and to my surprise Mike Salomon was not only there but invited me and my client in. Mr. Salomon knowledge of the product and ability to explain it was impressive. We had a deal with in 48 hours.
    After 10 years of selling homes I can tell you the really important part of the transaction is attention to detail and follow-up. I would give Sandcastle a 10++, every person that touched this transaction was professional and delightful to work with. I would especially like to point out Stephanie Carwile who handles walk through and punch out list. My client was an oil & gas relocation who I have done multiply transactions with and we were both blown away with Ms.Carwile professionalism and knowledge of each of her trades. It was very clear this organization is a well-oiled machine.

    I look forward to working with these guys again!!

  • Diana Alderman says:

    Everyone at Sandcastle was a sheer delight (Both Mikes) and the entire staff. My buyers were not only handled in a very professional manner, but they were also treated as special buyers. I think the entire staff went overboard to please them. I would recommend Sandcastle again and again. Thank you, Diana Alderman, Broker Owner, Hearthstone Realty


  • Recently I had the opportunity to represent a client who purchased a new home from Sandcastle Homes. They offer some of the best floor plans! I met with Mike Solomon and was impressed by his education, business and building background. He is straightforward and a builder with whom it is easy to work. The process is user friendly — even for a first-time buyer. The punch out list and walk throughs were executed in a considerate and timely manner and addressed all concerns about inspection details.

    I have also had the opportunity to assist buyers in resale purchase of older Sandcastle Homes. The inspections of these homes are impressive as there are very few items in need of repair.


  • Jerry Blum says:

    I just closed on a new construction home built by Sandcastle Homes. My buyers were able make many changes and upgrades which made them very happy. The process from the start to finish went like a charm. Sandcastle Homes was always there to answer any questions and of course make any changes requested by my Buyer’s. They have been homeless for almost 3 months because of hurricane Harvey are are very excited to get settled in their new home this weekend. I would recommend Sandcastle Homes to anyone.

  • "I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steven. From the owner Mike Salomon down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder." Neal Massey
  • "I purchased my house on 1/31/17. I have the Coronado plan. The process of adding upgrades was very easy. The closing went very smoothly. Mike was great to work with! Since the closing, I’ve had a few minor issues come up. I can’t say enough about Steven! He has always been extremely helpful and has fixed all of these minor issues or set me up with the person who can fix them. He is great!
    I love my home! I feel like I got a good value for the location. I look forward to enjoying my house in the years to come!" Kris Kieta
  • "We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house."
