Plat Circle Homes


custom home builder Van Alstyne

John, thank you for building us our forever home!

We purchased land in Van Alstyne, Texas knowing it would be where we would build our forever home. When looking for a builder we visited some ongoing custom home construction in the area by Plat Circle Homes. We were immediately impressed with the detail and quality in the homes and already knew about John’s excellent reputation as a builder. We also loved the fact that all Plat Circle homes are Energy Star certified.

We are so glad John agreed to build our home for us. He listened to what we wanted and made meeting our needs a priority. He guided us through the home building process one step at a time and made the experience one I will always recall fondly. He was great to work with and made himself available when we had questions.    

John built us a home that is exactly what we wanted. Our friends and family love the finishes and quality craftsmanship – but not nearly as much as we do. We love the openness of the floor plan and the attention to every detail. 

I love turning into my driveway at the end of a long work day and seeing my gorgeous home. It makes me so happy to know that we will be living in this beautiful space for the rest of our lives. Thank you John Garrett, for being a part of making our dream come true!

We purchased land in Van Alstyne to build our forever home.  I drove by one of John’s Plat Circle Home signs in the area and decided to give him a call about building a home.  We spoke for about 30 minutes on the phone, and I told him we were just getting started.   He recommended that after we get our plans together to call him back for an in-person interview.  He also gave me the number for Rippentrop and KD Cad and Design.

We actually were still interviewing architects also.  We met with Kimberly and she helped us design the perfect house.

After the plans were finished, we interviewed 5 builders in all.  We were very cautious and particular when choosing our builder.  John stood out among all the builders.  He actually spent several hours with us during the initial meeting talking about the house and our expectations.  My friends kept asking me who I was going to use to build our home, every time I mentioned Plat Circle Homes people always had positive comments to say about John. 

After we started building, John kept us up to date on the progress and addressed all my OCD questions and concerns.  We were at the building site every few days and ran into John on several occasions.  He runs a tight ship and uses good quality subcontractors.

We are thrilled with our home and cannot thank John Garrett enough.

Thank you again for our gorgeous forever home.  We are in love and never want to leave!  John’s attention to detail stands far above the rest!  From the finest quality products, to installers, to personal touch, he creates a dream home to love and be proud of for years to come.  His reputation in the industry speaks for itself and everyone always has a kind word to say about John Garrett.  We are thrilled with our home as it is everything we could have imagined and more.

We are very satisfied having worked with Plat Circle Homes to build our house. John’s commitment to quality was evident in each phase of the build, and the result is a high quality, energy star efficient home that is comfortable and makes good use of space. His recommendations were thoughtful and increased both the function and value of the home. We highly recommend using Plat Circle Homes to others that are interested in building.

Plat Circle Homes and John Garrett built a beautiful and stylish home for us.  We are so pleased with the quality of construction and service we received from John Garrett.

We would highly recommend Plat Circle Homes to anyone interested in building a new home.

I have always had my heart set on a beautiful country style/craftsman home but could never find one in our area that met all of our needs.  I was ecstatic to find out someone was building them right across the street from my in-laws!  We drove right over to one of the homes and instantly fell in love with the style.  John helped us pick out a floor plan that had everything we were looking for.  As first time home owners we were clueless as to what all went into building a home.  John was there every step of the way and more to help make this process easier on us.  John goes above and beyond to make sure everything is done with perfection and you can trust if he has anything to do with it, it will be done right.  We could not be any happier with our dream home and would highly recommend Plat Circle Homes to anyone.

We used Plat Circle Homes to build our dream home!  We met with several contractors prior to meeting with John and we never got the service that was expected (even during the bid process).  John was the one that not only helped us to build our dream home, but he offered suggestions on ways to improve it.  From the first day we met with him until the day we closed, John delivered on everything that we asked for, all timelines were met, and he came in on the budget.  It was a painless process which is not often associated with building a house.  I will be using him for all of my construction needs going forward and I would recommend him to all of my family and friends without hesitation.

I cannot say enough about the quality of the home Plat Circle Homes built for me and my late husband.  Everything Mr. Garrett does is top drawer. He builds a house as if it were his own and he looks for the smallest details to be sure everything is perfect.  Things were included that we had never dreamed about. Small details that really make it a “customized home”. Mr. Garrett stays on top of what is up and coming in the building industry to make sure the home he builds is truly Green Energy Efficient.  You can trust your money and the building of your home to Plat Circle Homes and Mr. John Garrett. We are so blessed to have found him and our home is truly our dream home come true.

We decided on Plat Circle Homes after seeing a recently completed home that John had built.  John’s attention to detail simply amazed us!  He assisted in choosing the perfect floor plan for us.  It makes us proud to continually hear the compliments on our new home from friends, family & people we don’t even know!  Without a doubt, we would recommend John and Plat Circle Homes to anyone wanting to build a high quality and energy efficient custom home!

We would highly recommend John Garrett and Plat Circle Homes to anyone that was looking to build a home.  John not only met our expectations, but exceeded them.  Thank you for doing such a good job on our new home.
