Richmond American Homes

Travis and April Stephens had no intention of buying a home when they first moved to Colorado. But after visiting and seeing several great floor plans in their price range, Travis decided to check out the Sweetwood in The Meadows community in Castle Rock.

The Stephens wanted something with a rustic Colorado feel, stone facing with brown or green paint. The couple instantly connected with their Sales Associate, Kerri, who found the perfect home for them almost immediately.

The Thoreau home fit the bill, offering the exterior they wanted, as well as an open floor plan and a spacious master bedroom.

"We didn't know what to expect at first," Travis remembered, "We had built our home in Georgia from the ground up, but we weren't sure of the Richmond American process."

Since the couple had not planned on buying a home, they were worried about getting financing quickly, but Richmond American's affiliate, HomeAmerican Mortgage Corporation came through.

"They understood we were anxious, but they reassured us. They're really good people. That's what made the experience really easy. Less stressful than our first homebuying experience."

The Stephens locked in an interest rate and got most of it taken care of over email, just showing up to sign the papers at closing.

The couple also chose to insure their home through Richmond American's affiliate, American Home Insurance.

"The rate was great and I jumped at the opportunity," Travis explained, "I didn't have to worry about shopping for better rates."

The home the couple selected was finished to the drywall stage of construction, meaning all the walls were up, but the couple was still able to personalize the home with the fixtures and finishes of their choice. The process of selecting their options at the Home Gallery was quite different than what they had experienced in Georgia, where the builder offered very limited options.

"We thought it would be stressful, but it wasn't. Once Stacey got a feel for us, she knew what we wanted and it was easy," Travis said about the Design Consultant who assisted them.

Today, the Stephens are still happy with their home and the neighborhood in Castle Rock, where they plan to eventually start a family.
