Sandcastle’s 25th Anniversary

February 11, 2020
Published by

Sandcastle Homes, the premier luxury homes in Houston TX homebuilder, is celebrating 25 years in the home building market. We have reached a significant milestone and thought we would share how far we have come and how much we have grown over these past 25 years.

It all began more than two decades ago when Mike Salomon and Mike Dishberger recognized the future potential of the untapped Inner Loop new home market and foresaw inner-city living becoming popular again. These two visionaries teamed up to become homebuilders and form Sandcastle Homes in 1995. Since then, Sandcastle Homes has been providing quality and value for homeowner’s in Houston. Salomon and Dishberger bought the first Sandcastle lots on Sandman Street in December of that year. Throughout our first couple years, we continued to rapidly grow by constantly pushing the boundaries of developing areas, such as Cottage Grove, Garden Oaks, and Rice Military, to create new home markets where none had existed before. Other builders took notice and followed suit, and today, at least 100 builders are active in Houston’s Inner Loop new home market.

After experiencing immense success with Enclave at T.C. Jester in Shady Acres, we began to focus on developing and building gated communities in the Galleria area and Inner Loop Houston in 2004. From that time on, we have closed an average of 50 homes per year and landed on Builder Magazine’s list of the fastest growing home building companies from 2004 to 2007. From 2017 to 2019, we earned Houston’s Best & Brightest Companies to Work for from the National Association for Business Resources. In 2016, our very own Mike Dishberger was awarded Builder of the Year by the Texas Association of Builders.

Today, we are building in 10 Houston communities from the Houston Heights to Spring Branch to Montrose. The secret to our consistent success is that everyone at Sandcastle Homes is committed to making sure our customers have an overwhelming positive experience, before, during, and after the home buying process. We offer superior designs that meet the needs of today’s buyers, construction of exceptional and enduring quality, the ideal collection of luxury, Green features and outstanding customer service, all at unbeatable prices— and that is why we have earned a reputation as The Best Value in Town!

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our amazing team for their hard work and dedication and our loyal homes in Houston TX homebuyers for and trusting us to build your home. We could not have reached this milestone without you all. We are extremely proud to be celebrating 25 years in the business and look forward to the next 25 years.

"We are so grateful to have found Sandcastle Homes! They’ve made the home-buying process so much easier and more enjoyable than we could have imagined. They are responsive, respectful, and always put the customer first. We truly appreciate the speed and accuracy with which they’ve addressed any concerns we’ve brought up throughout the process and can’t wait to officially own our first home. Sandcastle has a team that clearly values one another as much as they do their customers, and you can feel a sense of community when working with them."

"Sandcastle did an amazing job with my house. They came through on everything they promised. Jose Salas, the construction manager, is very helpful even after we closed on the house. He goes above and beyond. Getting to meet the owner, Salomon, during the closing was a great experience as many other builders don’t do this. We love our house and the quality of it!!"

Enrique and Judith

"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."

Andres and Marcela

"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 Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen 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."
