Relationship: He built the home we bought
Review Date: Dec 2019

Allan is one of the best builders I have had the pleasure of working with. We bought our home from another family that Allan built the home for 6 years ago. We had a few questions and concerned so I called him. He immediately answered the call and within a few days came to my home with his lead contractor and went over each detail and assured me of all my concerns. I would definitely recommend him for his service. Also, the attention to detail in the features of our home is second to none.Read More

Consider this as rave a review as one could write. If there were more 'stars' available, I would utilize. I am a design professional with 30+ years in the Houston market, and when it came to building our personal home, we chose Allan Edwards. His reputation as one of Houston's premier builders is totally merited. And that dedication to a quality experience extends to his entire staff -- with a special nod to our fabulous superintendent, Ian Funnell -- and the sub contractors that Allan personally curates to work on all his homes. From the moment we first met with Allan, it was clear that he holds great pride and passion for his life's work. He is one of those people who Walks his Talk. Our project was on time, in budget, and without drama! Allan extends a highly collaborative approach to the construction process, and we were kept fully involved every step of the way. We would chose Allan again, and heartily recommend his company. Not only do we thoroughly enjoy our new home, but we have made great connections along the way. Photos to be posted later....Read More

“When we decided to build our new home Allan Edwards was at the top of our list of builders to consider. He had a reputation of being a hands-on builder, and of course the quality of his homes we saw was amazing. Allan built our home and we were very happy with the building process, the results, and how he cared for the house after we moved in. We would highly recommend Allan and his team to anyone building a new home.”Read More

Review Date: Dec 2018

We purchased a home in River Oaks that Allan had built eleven years earlier. We liked the design and the layout of the home and it has been a great home for our family. Allan has been very helpful to us since we purchased our home. He is always responsive when we contact him and he offers his advice and assistance whenever we ask him. He referred us to several resources that would not have been willing to help us without a builder referral. When we have had work performed on the home people have been very complimentary of the original construction.Read More

If you are considering a builder, Allan Edwards is it! He is extremely dedicated and meticulous and will do everything to see your home is exactly what you want! Building your forever home can be emotional and taxing, but Allan uses the most up to date software, pictures and time line to keep you informed daily on what is going on with your home and also to keep your selections current and on time. He uses only the highest quality finishes as well as the best trades to build your home in Houston. Even if you make a mistake (I thought I did not want an island in my closet but decided after move in I needed one), he will do everything possible to correct it and make you happy! He has a well trained eye and walks your house often during the process to make sure it meets with his high standards. Just as impressive is his continued support after closing to make sure everything is running smoothly. We are so incredibly happy with our home! Allan is an expert in his field and I would recommend him to anyone searching for the best home builder!Read More

Allan Edwards built my house 20 years ago. Since we had no problems with the house, we lost touch. Then came hurricane Harvey and we flooded. By the time we realized the magnitude of the damage, it was impossible to find a contractor. One phone call to Allan and he was there in 30 minutes. Took care of the entire project, worked with us on our budget and delivered a house which I feel is more beautiful (images attached). Impeccable work and attention to detail. Allan was our angel in our hour of need. There are good and decent people in this world! Allan Edwards epitomizes the goodness in humanity.Read More

We are very happy with the work that Allan did on our home and we would not hesitate to use him again. Going through the building process can be difficult at best, particularly when it is a full, historical renovation such as ours. What made our task even more daunting was the fact that we were living overseas at the time the work was being done. However, Allan and his team did a great job on the house, and they did a good job keeping us up to date and communicating with us about issues. In fact, one of the driving reasons that I so am comfortable giving 5 stars to Allan is that he never walked away from an issue or concern that we raised. Every project will have its issues, but what counts for us is how the builder manages those issues. Allan was always responsive and gave us confidence in the work being done. We love our home.Read More

My husband and I have built several houses, and I can honestly say this was the most trouble-free and hassle-free experience we have ever had with a builder. Dick Davies, the superintendent was at our job every day and Allan was there most days. When we were out of town for any period of time, they sent us regular photos showing the progress. All of the subs were first-class. Any time anyone had questions, they called and made sure they were doing everything the way we would want it rather than just putting it together the way they thought we might want it. Our home is beautiful, and it was completed in just under one year. If we EVER build another house, Allan is our builder.Read More

We are extremely proud new owners of one of Allan Edwards amazing homes . We were not looking to buy but when we saw this house we were amazed with the exceedingly high levels of quality, uniqueness and overall beauty that it had to offer . Neither one of us had ever seen a house as outstanding! It's absolutely beautiful and Allan, Dick and their team have been so supportive and overly helpful over the last year helping us with any needs we've had since we've moved in. I highly recommend Allan Edwards as a home builder! They are overly qualified and you can trust they will stand by their word and will build you the house of your dreams !

This home was built in 1999. I purchased this home in 2004. One of the reasons was that it was built by Allan Edwards. I have worked with Allan for many years as a real estate agent and have sold a number of his homes. I have also recommended him to build custom homes for my clients. He has a very professional group of contractors and has always shown great attention to the construction details. His knowlegde of home building process from the planing stage to completion is excellent.Read More

I have had the opportunity to work with Allan Edwards on several projects that involved luxury, custom-built homes, spec homes and residential lot sales. He is one of the finest custom home builders in Houston and only uses the best tradesmen in the business. His reputation is outstanding with all of his clients. He primarily focuses on the inner city and upscale neighborhoods, but he builds quality homes wherever it might be. His ability to communicate and help clients turn their vision into reality sets him apart from all others. He makes the entire experience pleasant and he keeps the project on time and on budget. At the end of the day, Allan Edwards builds a home that his clients will love and enjoy for years to come.Read More

Allan builds a very good house; ours was an historic district renovation with a new addition and we are very pleased with it. The details are well thought out and there are many special features which we are delighted to have. Allan himself is a true gentleman; he is concerned about what he has built, he is readily available and easy to contact, and will make sure any glitches or "touch-ups" are corrected even well after closing time. We have been quite fortunate to have him as the owner/builder of our house, and we would certainly recommend him as a builder should anyone ask.Read More

Building with Allan Edwards has been a dream! This is the second house we have built, and I was really hesitant after the experience we had with the last builder we used.

However, we love this house so much, we are probably staying put forever!!!Read More

We had custom architectural plans designed by Brickmoon Design and were looking for a luxury custom home builder. Based on our criteria, Allan Edwards won the selection process based on the quality of homes he showed us. Allan doesn't bait and switch by showing you quality craftsmanship and then have a different crew do the work. He uses the same 'best in craft' folks he's used for years and it shows. Allen is a true builder and made recommendations about our materials like stucco and roof tiles as if he was building his personal house and not our specs. “This will cost x more, but you’ll never have to replace it.” He insisted on quality like copper plumbing through the whole process, but was happy to value engineer with options on things that were just preference. Allan had a dedicated superintendent onsite and yet Allan still stopped by daily for inspections. We even found Allen crawling around in the attic after framing to make sure it passed his personal quality control inspection. “it all starts with great bones”. Allen recommended we move our wine cellar from the entry hallway to the dining room for more 'interest' during dinner and he was spot on. Now, 6 years later, we've had zero issues with the house and love it as much as the day we moved in. If we were ever to build another custom home I know exactly who would build it! Thanks again Allan.Read More

Allan is among the most elite Custom Home Builders in Houston and probably the Country! My experience began when I contacted him to build a home for me...He located a lot, that wasn't for sale in the neighborhood that was my first choice, and spoke to the owner who agreed to sell the lot ...And at a very reasonable price also! I met with Allan several times to determine who should be my Architect and Interior Designer, based on his vast Experience and working with MANY over the last 40 or so years...He was "Spot On" as both the Architect and Interior Designer were great...Most Especially the Interior Designer, Elizabeth Koval Designs (now married, Elizabeth Perry). Elizabeth was Fabulous as she went "Above and Beyond" an all situations! Accordingly, Allan did the same along with his lead team of Dick Davies and Matt McGinley. From the Foundation, The BEST FRAMING Work I have EVER seen bar none, to the completed House...Absolutely Spectacular and would recommend him to anyone wanting Stunning Quality and a Spectacular House!!!Read More

Allan, thanks for doing a fantastic job for us from start to finish.

Allan: We really appreciate all the hard work you did building our house. We love everything and cannot get over how well the house turned out. We are still amazed by little features we did not even know about.

You and your team did such an amazing job.Read More

We have built and bought many houses in our lives and have worked with many home builders. Allan is one of the best. We are very satisfied with him as a builder and extremely pleased with his work. Allan pays attention to important details and does not cut corners like many builders often do. His construction is sound and his finishes are high quality; his designs are functional, yet appealing. As a builder, Allan stands by his work. He is motivated by building a fine, high-quality home rather than strictly by his bottom line. He is easy to work with and addresses concerns in a timely manner. We highly recommend Allan as a builder and would use him again in the future. We absolutely love our home!Read More

When constructing a house, you look not only for a builder, but for a “building partner.” You will be married to his work as long as you live in your home. There is no better partner than Allan Edwards. He works diligently to correct unanticipated unpredictable “happenings.” His attention to detail will satisfy even the most compulsive client.

Allan is more than a good builder. He is a good man. His calm, decisive approach to his work comes from a foundation of decades in his trade, honing his skills. I know that when he says something will happen, indeed he will do what it takes to make it so. I have the utmost confidence that when my clients hire Allan and his team of well qualified staff, they will move mountains to make my clients happy. I personally love, as an Architect, that there are no surprises with Allan. He does a very good job of making sure people's expectations are on par with his, and that everyone is held accountable for their work, regardless of how small. I am excited to have worked with Allan, and I hope to work with him on several more projects in the coming years.

We knew we wanted Allan Edwards! Glowing recommendations heard throughout our upscale neighborhood had preceded our meeting him. We pursued and finally contracted with Allan to perform a large remodel. As his reputation predicted, he was very professional and knowledgeable with a wealth of experience. He came up with a creative means for sectioning off the house providing workers with their own entrance. Dust and debris were kept out of the living space and there was minimal disruption to our daily lives. Allan and his team offered many helpful ideas and easily solved any unforeseen problems that arose. Allan's Superintendent, Dick, has a sharp eye for detail, a ready smile and a great rapport with the subs assuring work went smoothly and was done well, no cutting corners. The work exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Allan and his team.Read More
