" When we decided to tear down our old house and replace it with a new, larger one on the same lot, we wanted a builder we could trust to tell us the truth, do what they said they would do, and give us a high quality product at a fair price. Our research and the reputation of Cunningham Development convinced us they were the right choice. From our initial meeting with the architect to the final closing of the title, they exceeded our every expectation. Chris Cunningham and his entire team are people of high character, great skill, and an unmatched dedication to quality. They will always put their experience and imagination to work for their client. It is an honor for us to recommend Cunningham Development without reservation. "Barbara & Don Jordan
"I wanted to thank you and Cunningham Builders again for working with us to fix this shower issue. Cunningham Builders has been tremendous to have as a builder. We were impressed with the value we received during the building of our home and the way Chris and company has stood behind the product they build. It is not often one hears about a builder standing by their product as you all do. I have and will continue to recommend your company! Thanks for doing things right!"Tim & Debbie Kropp
" This was the first house we have built. Due to some of the horror stories we had heard about some builders, we were very cautious in our selection. We could not be more satisfied that we chose Cunningham Development. In fact, we were so pleased we have referred our friends who have also had a house built. From design all the way to final walk through, we truly enjoyed working with Chris, Keith and Corby. They completed our house on schedule through the timing of their trades, leaving no time wasted. Cunningham Development has assembled some of the industry best trades, and has set extremely high standards for their work. The quality of the work is unmatched, and Chris, Keith or Corby was there every morning to check on the progress. We were actually complemented by several neighbors throughout the process on having one of the cleanest construction sites they had ever seen. We appreciated receiving regular budget reports, so that we always knew where we were financially throughout the project. We never had any major problems in the process, and anything we were unhappy with, they immediately rectified. We have been in our house one year and love it! Cunningham Development will build our next house. "Truett and Julie Allen
" Thanks so much for all you and the crew at Cunningham have done to make our new beach house the very BEST!!! It has surpassed our dreams, and we are enjoying our time there with family and friends. The design and all aspects of the décor perfectly suit our needs. And we were pleased with all contractors and the many expert helpers along the way. You were especially patient and unflappable during our numerous family spats, and we truly appreciate your professionalism and understanding. We love the outcome and are very proud of our new “Crab Trap”. We enjoyed getting to know you and feel like we have a new friend. We hope you will visit us often when you are in Galveston. Best of luck to you in all future endeavors. Big hugs, Debby & Clif"Clif and Debby Crabtree
"We really appreciate your assistance in resolving our recent issue with the wine room. We truly love this house and we are so grateful for your attention to detail and follow through in assuring us that you stand behind what you build- in every way! Again, thank you!"Hugh and Leah Urbantke
" Our experience of building a house with Cunningham Development was the best one we could hope for. Their continuous professionalism, attention to detail and desire to satisfy even the more difficult demands were all spectacular traits. The quality of their work is unsurpassed. Now, almost a year later, we are still very pleased with Cunningham's follow-through, as they take the initiative to complete paint touch-ups, needed after the move, and they continue to be available to answer various questions. We are grateful to Cunningham Development for making our home building to be such a positive experience."Jeff & Laurie Horner
" I hope your 2012 is going somewhat as planned. It seems the luxury housing market has a strong pulse. In regards to Carl, he has done an outstanding job handling our moisture issue and leaky shower. His level of professionalism, courteous demeanor and accommodating attitude, is a true compliment to the Cunningham brand. Just thought you should know. Sincere best,"Lawrence Shipley
" As you likely know, prior to our Cunningham home, we had custom-built two homes in Calgary and were aware of how much information flows between the homeowner and the builder during the construction of a home. We had been those homeowners who visit the job-site on almost a daily basis and want to be involved in even the ‘little’ decisions. Knowing that we were building from a distance, we were uncertain as to how involved we could be with our house in Houston. Communication was critical during our project and BuilderTrend proved invaluable by providing us with an online database of information specific to our home. While we could have communicated with our construction manager simply by phone and email, BuilderTrend enhanced the process by keeping everything organized for us. BuilderTrend allowed us to view a ‘checklist’ of options - we knew when elections had to be made and our choices were clearly laid out. We could easily keep track of option costs and the total cost of the project. Through regular photo additions, we were also able to view the the project at various stages. BuilderTrend was an excellent communication ‘hub’. In short, although we were 1800 miles away and only visited the job-site once between purchase and completion, BuilderTrend allowed us to feel fully involved with the construction of our home. "Mark and Karen Fraser
" We looked long and hard for the right company to build our new home, and there's no doubt we found that in Cunningham Development. There are plenty of guys out there who can build a good house, but we wanted more than that. We wanted someone who could build us a great house AND help us enjoy the process along the way. That's exactly the experience we had in working with Chris and Keith -- super product and impeccable service. We couldn't have had a better home building experience. Definite five-star rating!!"Nathan & Kristen Stedham
" As Kim and I enjoy our new home we reflect back on the tremendous efforts provided by Cunningham Development. The countless scheduling details, selection and quality control you and your staff provided were remarkable. It’s a great comfort to know that the home is built to the highest quality standards. Your staff including Lisa and Corby were excellent at communicating with us and preparing us for every step as we rolled through the building process. The details and vast knowledge you shared with us made our dream come true. We simply would not have had the home we wanted and dreamed of for so many years, without Cunningham Development. Again we say thank you! "Richard and Kim Rolland
" HI! Wanted to send a quick email to let you know the neighbor to the east was very welcoming on Sunday, in part because of the great experience she had with Cunningham Builders while the house was being built. She praised everything about the process: how well designed the home was with a great setback and fitting into the neighborhood so well, how neat the site was kept throughout the entire time, and most importantly because she has 2 older daughters, aged 21 and 18, how respectful all the workers were. So THANKS! because as we stood there listening to her praises, I thought that if the opposite were true, we would not have been so welcomed! And the house is great....a few things making the list but all in all, we are really pleased. thanks! Mary Jawor "The Jawors
