Working with Galleria of New Homes
Q: How does the Galleria help save time and frustration?
A: When looking to build a new home, going from builder to builder is time consuming and often confusing. By coming to the Galleria, our knowledgeable agents help buyers focus their search. If you’re looking for a builder who, for instance, provides Mediterranean-style homes, offers several kitchen cabinet options and allows for floor plan customization, our agents can narrow your search to the two or three builders that meet your specific criteria.
We’ve helped hundreds of clients build homes and our agents bring that knowledge and experience to your search.
Q: What sets the Galleria apart?
A: One thing that sets Galleria apart is our focus on education. Our agents undergo training every morning and regularly meet with builders and partners in order to offer our clients the most current information to help them make informed decisions to meet their goals. We take the guess-work out of selecting a builder turning an often fragmented experience into a clear path for our clients.
Q: What can I expect when I come to the Galleria?
A: A personal, yet technologically rich experience. Our agents will work with you to help you narrow your search and match you with builders that meet your criteria. We will then walk you through our interactive touch-screen displays to show you floor plans, elevations, communities and more. You can check out several builders in just one visit. It’s an experience you won’t find anywhere else!
Q: How does the Galleria help before and during construction?
A: Our agents have a comprehensive approach to the home building and buying process and will be with you every step of the way from selecting a site and builder to coordinating home inspections and securing insurance.
We have long-standing relationships with financial and legal professionals, pool companies, insurance agencies and more – all available to meet with you at the Galleria. See our list of Partners.
