The Lampley's new home!!!Enlarge
Our Forever Home
We had a piece of land and were ready to build. After tireless searches of different home builder companies, we came to the conclusion that we would not be comfortable with the price of the size home we would be building. So, we decided to look into a manufactured or modular home. At the time we were still calling them a “trailer house” not knowing the advances they had made in there construction and beauty.
We did many online searches and asked people who we knew that owned different brands of manufactured homes if they were happy with their homes. Most of the people we talked to were happy and two were Palm Harbor owners and both said they would buy another Palm Harbor. The online searches scared us so badly that we almost didn’t visit any manufactured home centers. We decided to go check a couple different brands out and compare for ourselves. So with online complaint print outs in hand and tips from friends, we visited several different brands within about a 3 month period. We finally agreed that the best brand for us to go with was Palm Harbor.
We decided on a floor plan and found that the same model home that we wanted was in San Antonio on Austin highway. When we got there we figured, here we go, the salesman is going to come out and be talking fast and pitching his ideas of what we want and pressuring us. We put our game faces on and prepared to be totally irritated by the time we left. I am pleased to say that it was just the opposite. We were introduced to Alberto Pina with Palm Harbor and his wonderful staff. They were all so nice and we couldn’t help but feel right at home in their presence. We were not pressured or hassled and the whole experience was actually easy and fun. They helped us find exactly the home that fit us. Alberto even took the time to take us to a Palm Harbor home center in another town to view a home that we later decided would be the home we would order.
Then after making the decision on the home, he took us to take the factory tour so we could see what all goes into making the home and different options (which was very helpful). He worked with us on choices and prices and let’s just say there were a lot of emails and phone calls and texts. We have now lived in our home 1 ½ months and we are so happy with our home. We have gotten so many compliments on it like, “your kitchen belongs in a magazine” and “your bathroom is so dreamy” and “look at the size of your pantry!!” We even had some of our good friends who were in the market for a new home come look at our home and chose to go with Pina and the same model home as ours.
Everyone that we dealt with in the process of completion was so nice and did such a wonderful job and was so very proud of their craft. In buying a Palm Harbor home compared to building a home we got more bang for our buck and just as good of a home as a site built home. Also talk about service after the sale, we can’t say enough how pleased we are about the whole process and home.
Thank you so very much Alberto Pina and Palm Harbor Village San Antonio on Austin Hwy. You have met and surpassed all our expectations and we are very pleased in trusting you all with the task of helping us find our forever home. Thanks again,
The Lampley Family
