Our homeowners are proof to our commitment to excellence.

We (our realtor actually) contacted Silverleaf about building us our forever home in Springtown and they have exceeded our expectations at nearly every step. We have been in our home almost 8 months and have only had a couple minor (ceiling fan balance, faulty microwave) warranty issues. When the issues were reported they we responded to promptly and resolved quickly. We have been so happy with Silverleaf and their team that we recommended this builder to our best friends who just closed on their own Silverleaf forever home.


Our family has had a WONDERFUL experience with Silverleaf. We had looked for multiple years, hoping to find a builder that could build a home that allowed for my parents to live with us while providing them privacy. Our biggest challenge was finding something that we could afford. The Silverleaf team worked with us in creating a floor plan that met our needs and made this idea possible! We were even able to make the move away from the city and build on an acre. The build process takes time, but it is time well spent. Silverleaf is there through the whole process, answering questions and making suggestions that make the final home wonderful. The quality of home is wonderful. Even more than we imagined. Any issues that arise (with a new home there is always something) Silverleaf is responsive and quick to make the necessary repair. You could not ask to work with a better team. I highly recommend their abilities to make your new home experience a GREAT one!


β€œIt has been a life long dream to build and move into a brand new home. I'm truly grateful that my experience was with Silver Leaf they went above and beyond. The floor plan that I picked was the only one that did not have a fireplace and I really wanted one. Another builder wanted to charge us $7000.00 to add one to a floor plan that called for one. When I spoke to Michelle about this she spoke to the owner they put one on my floor plan added it in for free. They made the experience easy and memorable. There was some minor things that needed attention and they took care of them promptly and without hesitation. Our home is made with very high quality. It is very beautiful. We highly recommend working with this company.”

"My husband and I are a new home builder. We just recently broke ground on our home. The process to this point has been marvelous! We have built a home with First Texas and had sworn off ever doing it again. Luckily we were introduced to Silver Leaf and the experience has been as easy as building a home can be. 

We are building a home to accommodate my parent's and Randy and I. Silver Leaf has been wonderful at taking an existing floor plan and changing it to meet our needs. We are excited to continue working with Christina and Garrett over the next 3-4 months as our Bucket List Item of living outside of the "city" becomes a reality.

Working with Silver Leaf - you will not regret your decision."


I just wanted to thank you for having such a fantastic sales rep, Christina. She was so professional, calm, educated, punctual and a realtors dream to work with. She is a valuable asset to your company, as I'm sure you already know and I could only wish that listing agents would be on top of things the way she was during our transaction. She communicated very efficiently and was fabulous answering all my clients questions. You build a very nice home and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to get one sold for you as well as looking forward to selling more in the near future!
