We love hearing from you!

In selecting Travis Mitchell Custom Homes, we made the best decision in building our house. We had peace of mind throughout the entire process of construction as Travis was very meticulous with the quality of craftmanship and managing the subcontractors for a smooth flow of construction, even with the challenges during the height of the supply chain issues in 2022. As a result, our beautiful home was completed on time, is well-built, and we are enjoying it so much every day!

Thank you so much!

“We’ve just celebrated what we hope will be the first of many holidays in our new Mitchell Custom Home in the Peninsula at Mystic Shores. It is with absolute pleasure that Al and I take this opportunity to say thanks to Travis and Donna of Mitchell Custom Homes.

As anyone might imagine, embarking upon a project of this magnitude long distance from Virginia was unnerving but looking back now it easy to see we made the right decision working with Travis and Donna. Our experience with Mitchell Custom Homes was exceptional in every way from start to finish. Travis’s attention to detail, planning, organization and coordination with vendors and tradesmen and women was amazing. Communication was extremely important since we lived so far away. The frequency of updates which included photos at various stages, went a long way to ease our minds.

Donna was like the icing on the cake; I liked her from the moment that we met. Her bubbly personality, enthusiasm for design, and resourcefulness, were an unexpected value add for us time and time again. She understood my design aesthetic and was committed to seeing me get what I wanted in my home. She was creative, constantly thinking outside the box to offer cost saving alternatives throughout construction.

I could go on and on singing the praises of Mitchell Custom Homes but sometimes less is more. I’ll finish by saying that it’s clear to see that Travis and Donna are equally invested the success of Mitchell Custom Homes. Our project went very smoothly for the most part but when challenges did arise, they always came to the table as a team with well thought out solutions and/or workarounds. Looking back, Al and I recognize that their cohesive, insightful partnership was key to their collective ability transform our dream into the reality of our family’s forever home. We are grateful for your patience, integrity, meticulous attention to our project, and for always making the Crews Family feel like a priority.”

With sincere thanks,

Pat & Al Crews

We can’t say enough about both Travis and Donna Mitchell and the seamless manner and extent in which they built our custom home. The attention to detail and professionalism exhibited by Travis and his team are certainly reflected in the product they built. Communication was key for us since we lived in Houston and were building a home 200 miles away. The fact that Travis is the “superintendent” on all of his jobs and only builds a limited number of homes at one time, was a key factor in our decision.

We highly recommend Travis Mitchell Homes to those that desire both a beautiful home and a great experience in a meticulous process.

Gayla and Michael Massey

After being in our house for four and a half years we couldn’t be happier we chose Mitchell Custom Homes for the build. Having a custom home built was pretty intense with all the decisions you have to make, and between both Travis and Donna, their guidance throughout the process was extremely helpful. One reason we chose Mitchell Homes was we heard Travis ran a tight ship and is good at staying on schedule, which he did. Donna made all the visits to the design center and other businesses enjoyable and productive, and offered very helpful advice. We are extremely pleased with the quality of the house and attention to detail. We highly recommend you choose Mitchell Custom Homes for your next home.

Mike & Beth Messinger

It was our privilege and opportunity to work with Mitchell Custom Homes.  We contracted with Travis after having worked with two other custom home builders.  We felt confident that Travis was honest, professional and extremely capable – all of which were true – and more!  The initial process began with Peggy Sampson’s incredible design.  We had a lengthy discussion with Peggy where she asked many questions – resulting in a design that was exactly what we had envisioned and took full advantage of our lot and view.  From there, we worked with Travis and Donna, making selections and honing in on the details.  Donna’s insight and assistance were invaluable – we managed to make 100’s of decisions and choices – all of which came together perfectly.  We would not have been able to do this without Donna’s help.  Travis worked with us and pulled it all together – coming in precisely on time and on budget.  Together, we worked with the Architectural Committee for our approvals and everything fell into place.  Throughout the building process, we were kept constantly informed and felt completely comfortable.  It honestly could not have been better!  Having heard terrible stories from friends who built new homes, we feel we hit the jackpot!  We have an incredibly beautiful home that is everything and more than we could have imagined.  We are so very thankful that we had such an amazing home building experience and owe it all to Travis, Donna, Peggy and their awesome team.

Above and Beyond Our Expectations

It is with genuine pleasure and satisfaction that we recommend Mitchell Custom Homes, LLC as your homebuilder. We had purchased land in a guarded community in the Hill Country and wanted to find a builder that was willing to build on our lot(s) to our specifications. We had a list of certain wants and desires, without any knowledge of how to make our dream come true. Travis and Donna Mitchell helped us to realize our dream through expert planning, craftsmanship and design. They respected us and our ideas with no request too trivial or impractical. They were always pleasant and courteous, as well as the subcontractors they used to complete our home. We can honestly say that from our first meeting with the Mitchells, we were thoroughly impressed with their professionalism and integrity.

Thank you, Mitchell Custom Homes, LLC for a wonderful home building experience. We love our new home.

We could not be more delighted with the beautiful home they built us and we are still dear friends! We would not hesitate to have them build for us again! Could there be a better testimony than that?

A mutual friend told me during our building process, “I wish I knew what it was like to build my dream home and not have to worry about shoddy workmanship, a shady builder or being cheated financially”. How had I never looked at it from that angle? She was so right! I am so grateful to Mitchell Custom Homes. Let them build the home of your dreams.

Forrest & Kerry Wiggins

Travis and Donna are great. I love my house! They helped me design and build the house of my dreams that would make great use of the lot and the beautiful Hill Country view. Every time someone new walks in the door they say “WOW!” Travis’s commitment to quality and detail and Donna’s eye for design are a terrific combination. They were great to work with from start to finish.

Betty Jinks

We would like to share what a good experience we had building our home with Travis and Donna Mitchell, from our first meeting to last, they were very helpful in the whole process. Travis made some great recommendations during the design phase, as a result we have some beautiful glass doors that we would not have known about and as a result, we are able to take advantage of our beautiful view of the river. Donna was a calming presence when it came to all of the choices to be made, she was patient and gave good guidance through that entire phase of the build.

This was our first time to build a home having always bought ready made, it was fun for one of us and daunting for the other, but in the end we are both so happy with the end product. We felt safe having them in charge of building our forever home, we knew they were adamant about the quality of the work and the integrity not only of the build, but of their great reputation. Bottom line, Travis Mitchell Custom Homes built us a solid, beautiful home that will last a lifetime and the process overall was very pleasant!

Trey & Julie Quigley

We contracted with Mitchell Custom Homes to build our home in Mystic Shores. We really liked the fact the bid was all-inclusive. We picked out interior fixtures, tile, granite, rugs, appliances, doors, etc. Everything was included, so when the house was done, it was ready for move in.

First, we toured a number of homes completed by Mitchell Custom Homes with the builder, Travis Mitchell, the architect, Peggy Sampson and the home designer, Donna Mitchell. We were amazed at the plans Peggy drew up for our home based on discussions during the tour. She was easy to work with and we are more than satisfied with the quality of her work.

Next, we worked with Donna Mitchell to pick out the interior choices. They work with local reputable companies and the process was very thorough. We selected what we wanted with no limit on options, like some builders do. Donna was very good about keeping us in line with our budget as well as keeping our style consistent. She was especially good about making sure we both were happy with our choices.

Finally, watching the house go up and seeing how important quality of work is to Travis Mitchell was very comforting. He can be quite picky at times, but that is a good thing. We were able to make a few changes during the process with no problems whatsoever. The house was completed on time and on budget. We recommend Mitchell Custom Homes to anyone who is building their home.

Don & Janet Jackson

Choosing Mitchell Custom Homes to build our retirement home in the beautiful Hill Country is one of the best decisions we have ever made. Travis and Donna made every step of the building process enjoyable and seamless. With their help, we felt very confident in our decisions and were incredibly pleased with the end result. Travis holds great pride in his workmanship and is personally involved in every aspect of the building process, working with a dedicated team of craftsmen to ensure the home is built to specifications with careful attention to every detail. Donna is a gifted designer, is fun to work with, and does a great job of keeping within a realistic budget while helping to create a beautiful end result. Travis and his contractors have been there to answer questions and address any concerns well beyond the house completion with professionalism, courtesy and a quick response. We simply can’t say enough good things about Travis and Donna and couldn’t be more pleased with our beautiful new home!
Jim & Roberta Hemphill

Connie and I would like to thank you for great job you did on the construction of our new home. This was our third time to build a custom home and without a doubt the best experience we had of the three. The previous builders did a good job but we can not be happier we selected you to build this house and the great home you built us.

We can’t say enough about the professional and personal way you handle the entire process. Really appreciated the fact you kept us informed of every aspect of the construction and willingness to work with us on minor changes as the house was being built. Even the other residents already living around our home had nothing but positive comments to us about the professional way you and the subcontractors handle the entire construction process.

A sincere thanks to the all involved in this project. Starting with Kimberly Mockert with KM Designs for the house plan. Teri Western for assistance and guidance in the selection of carpet, tile, and paint colors, etc. Victor Traina for the tile / carpet work. The Cabinet Shop of New Braunfels and especially to you Travis for your attention to detail.

Without reservation, we would recommend Travis Mitchell Custom Homes to anyone considering building a quality custom home you want done right, on time and on budget.

Thanks Travis for building us a Great Home!

Wayne & Connie Williams

We first met with Travis in the fall of 2008. However, since 2006, we were well familiar with the homes he had built. We were impressed with the quality of the build and attention to detail. We spent a great deal of time in 2007 looking at the other builders in the area, but always seem to come back to the homes Travis had built.

We settled on the final design of our home and worked with Peggy Sampson at PS Designs, to begin design of our home the winter of 2007. When we finalized our design, we met with Travis. By this time the financial meltdown of 2008 flared and our opportunity had to sit idle until the market settled down. It wasn’t until we felt the market was stable enough that we decided to put our plan in motion. We dusted off the design and reengaged Travis. We finally started site development in late March 2010, and began, what we believe was an extraordinary journey.

From the beginning, Travis was intimately involved and kept us informed of all the activities and when our input was required, he worked with our schedules without sacrificing cost, quality or schedule. Another important aspect of working with Travis is his ability to understand his client’s vision and bring ideas to enhance the project, always with cost and schedule in mind. It’s not unusual for him to come back with a more cost efficient way, method, or concept. He will work with you to insure you get the best value.

Travis’ team of subcontractors was marvelous and we believe them to be the best in the business. We heard numerous times from the subcontractors, that they enjoyed working with Travis and appreciated his attention to the detail of their work By the time we finished the drive, the total build was 5 months and our final cost was on the money. By all accounts, this was a smoothly run project with very few problems from our perspective. We are truly happy to say that the final product exceeded our expectation.

We are proud to say that our builder was Travis Mitchell.

Lynn & Larry McGray

As we were looking at home builders in the Mystic Shores area, we were continually impressed with Travis Mitchell’s work and his reputation! We had never built a custom home before, so we wanted to be very sure we did the research to make the right choice. We are pleased to say that we can recommend Travis, and some of the reasons are:

His attention to detail — he’s on the build site daily managing each project personally. Also, Travis’ exceptional organizational ability keeps the job moving allowing the house to be finished on schedule!

Excellent, trustworthy vendors, contractors — Travis has developed long-standing relationships with many suppliers and skilled sub-contractors. Travis ensures that their work measures up to his high standards.

Quality workmanship — means a well-built, totally custom home built to our specifications for a fair price

Good communication skills — for out-of-town clients like us, he doesn’t hesitate to call or email when there are questions or decisions to be made. He kept us updated when we couldn’t be on the job site, and he regularly sent us pictures via email at significant points in the construction process.

Access to the services of a talented Decorator — it was SO HELPFUL to have a capable decorator like Terri Western assist us in choosing paint colors, tile, flooring, etc.

To sum up, Travis is truly a “man of his word” and we are 100% sure we made the right choice in having him build our ‘dream home’ in Mystic Shores. And it has certainly been a pleasure to work with him! We are more than willing to talk to any perspective clients about our experience.

John & Karen Hobson

Mark and I want to thank you for making our home building experience so wonderful. Having built a custom home before, we knew what a major task we had undertaken, but you made the process simple and painless. You and your design team took a vision we had been developing for over five years and turned it into a reality in less than six months!

From our first meeting when you asked about our plans, reviewed our ideas and, importantly, gave us a realistic estimate of our construction costs, we knew you would be easy to work with. We especially appreciated your insight and suggestions along the way to ensure we made informed decisions and wise investments. And, your attention to every detail and proactive communication throughout the process while we were 300 miles away gave us tremendous peace of mind.

You have been the model of professionalism and, clearly, take great pride in your work. While we hope this will be the last house we ever build, we hope we’ll continue to see you often in the neighborhood. Thanks for everything!

Mark & Erin Packwood

When we bought our lot in Mystic Shores in 2003, we tried to envision ourselves in a new home, but we had no idea how to make our dream come true. We met Travis several times over the years and went into several of his homes. We were always impressed with the workmanship and attention to detail. Mike is a craftsman and handyman and he especially appreciated the sense of perfection we found in Travis’ work. So we felt that we had met the builder we needed for our home in the hill country.

We were still working in Houston in 2010 when Travis built our home so we were unable to watch the daily progress. We trusted Travis to keep us up to date on the progress of our home and to follow our building requests. Travis kept us in the loop via email, phone calls, and pictures. So when we did travel to Mystic Shores to see our house, we knew what to expect.

All of the contractors we met who are associated with Travis Mitchell Homes were kind, helpful, and easy to work with. They all mentioned that Travis is a perfectionist who will not put up with less than their best work. Travis provided us a budget to work with in choosing items like lighting fixtures, doors, tile, and water faucets, and that helped us so much in choosing what matched our taste. Janet in particular appreciated the help Travis’ design expert gave us in making selections and in setting up appointments.

We were hesitant to embark on this process because of the horror stories we heard from friends who had built homes and because the Mitchell Homes we saw far exceeded our $300,000 budget. We trusted Travis to build a quality home and he assured us he would help us stay within our budget (which we pretty much did).

Our new home is more than we expected and Mike especially is impressed by the quality of all aspects of construction. We would recommend Travis Mitchell Homes to those who are not intimidated by having a perfectionist building their homes. Travis added features (like crown molding and vaulted ceilings) that we did not request (but really like), and he would tell us if an idea would detract from the appearance or quality of the home. In the end, he produced a home that we love and that we feel would sell quickly if we need to leave the area.

Mike & Janet Ryan

When we started searching for our custom home builder, the two most important characteristics for us were honesty and trust. We had heard too many stories about how wrong things can go in the custom home business so we really did our research before selecting Mitchell Custom Homes. Honesty and trust were very important to us because we were living in Houston while our home was being built. We didn’t get to come every day to check on the progress and make sure things were right. We had to rely on Travis for that. Mitchell Custom Homes did an amazing job and we don’t have a single complaint!!! We would highly recommend Mitchell Custom Homes to anyone that values honesty, trust and the highest level of quality in a new home you can get!
Jeff & Amy Pickron

Hi Travis,

Susan and I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how much we enjoyed having you build our new home. When we started the process of wanting to build a new home, we looked at a lot of home builders. At first, we thought it was going to be difficult to pick the right home builder. There were just so many home builders to choose from. After talking to you and seeing the quality of homes that you have built, we decided to go with Mitchell Custom Homes. This was one of our best decisions ever.

Throughout the whole process of designing the home, financing the home, and building the home, you made the whole process easy. The home designer that you recommended designed the home exactly the way we had envisioned our new home to be. The finance company that you recommended was very easy to work with. The interior designer that you use was terrific. Besides being very knowledgeable, she was able to keep us within our budget, very important when building a home. During the building of the house, you constantly gave us ideas on how to improve the house. You set high standards for the work crews and the work crews did a fantastic job. We are extremely pleased with our new home and highly recommend you to all of our friends.

Thanks for building us a Great Home,

John & Susan Schmidt

Dear Travis,

We had been living in Maryland for twenty years when we decided to retire and return to our native state of Texas. We had purchased a lot in Mystic Shores years before, anticipating this move; the question remaining for us was “Who shall we trust to build our ‘dream home’ after all these years of living so far away?”

We searched for a contractor we could rely on to build a quality home, on time and within our budget. After more than just due diligence, Mitchell Custom Homes was the clear choice – and I am glad to say it was also the right choice. Your dedication to customer service became clear when you marked the site for our home without any commitment even before you were awarded the contract. Your recommendations, both before and during construction, were right on and much appreciated. During the course of construction you kept us apprised on progress, were on-site virtually daily, returned defective material you identified although it delayed construction and provided the services of an interior designer to assist with the many choices on materials and colors which we had to make.

You were clearly conscious of our need for prompt construction of the home, which you delivered months ahead of schedule without sacrificing quality. Your subcontractors were also true professionals who clearly delivered for us, and your services did not stop when the keys were turned over after closing.

We are extremely pleased with our new home, and certainly recommend Mitchell Custom Homes to any prospective homeowner without reservation.

Thank you again, Travis, and best wishes for continued success in the future.

Pablo & Linda Rodriguez

We were coming from Houston and unfamiliar with the unknowns of building on the uneven, rocky slopes of Mystic Shores, the Hill Country climate, and other concerns. We knew that we needed a builder that had the experience necessary to ease our concerns. True to his marketing material, Travis offered us peace of mind.

We met Travis through our Residential Designer Peggy Sampson and are fortunate that we met him when we did. We were strongly leaning toward another builder that we later learned got into serious problems that impacted his buyers. We chose Travis because he is well organized, professional and sincerely praised by his contractors and even though he is demanding of them, he is their preferred builder; Demands exact attention to detail that meets his level of quality and is quick to re-do an area that is not done to an expert degree of craftsmanship; Was on site or in the area daily and was readily available to subs or to us by phone or email; Is interested in new ideas and stays current with what’s happening in hill country design; Has a good eye for detail and color; Built to more stringent city-level building codes long before builders were required to.

One of Travis’ key assets is designer/coordinator Terri Western, who was invaluable to us by helping make selections that seemed overwhelming to us and keeping us on budget. Without reservation, we fully recommend Travis and Travis Mitchell Custom Homes.

Tony & Myra Stewart

Dear Travis,

I had two major concerns when it came time to choose a builder for our home in Mystic Shores. I knew that I would be out of town extensively throughout the construction process and I did not know the reputation of the builders in the local area.

Beginning with our first meeting, Travis quickly put my concerns to rest. I was immediately impressed with his attention to detail and quickly learned that he is a professional. He is at the job site almost daily and supervises the construction from beginning to end. He has excellent knowledge of new products and builds a superior home when compared to all other builders in the area. But his most impressive characteristic is his integrity and honesty.

I have and will continue to recommend Travis to anyone for their builder.

Rich Hill & Heather Champion

We are very pleased to have had Mitchell Custom Homes,LLC as the builder of our new home. Travis and Donna, our designer that developed our house plans helped create for us the house that we imagined to have built. We received more than that though from this gem of a team. From start to finish their expertise, suggestions, guidance and patience in the building process gave us a home that exceeds many times what we imagined it could be. Thank you for that.
Ed & Ann Sprencel

This has been our first experience at a custom built home and we could not have picked a finer builder than Travis Mitchell. Actually, we were his first client since he started his own business. Travis gave us suggestions to help cut expenses and create an atmosphere of comfort, hired subs with excellent skills, kept us abreast of what was the “next step”, and finished our home in a timely manner. We have had few reasons to have follow-up, but again that have been handled quickly and with great appreciation. There is no one I would recommend more.
Mark & Lacey Slosar

We cannot thank you guys enough for actually making this a dream come true for us. I know you hear that over and over again. And each time, I am SURE it is meant. But, it has also been a pleasant experience. To have such little conflict in building something this immense is almost unbelievable and it is totally due to Travis’ workmanship and his inner compass for wanting to do things done right. Donna, your advice was priceless as well – and we felt we were getting the ‘complete package’. When we went to the home for the first time after getting our keys…Tony had a hard time getting me to leave…I LOVE it just that much. It is amazing. There are touches in there that you two took personally to ensure they came about to what we would love.

I know I am a perfectionist and that can be stressful sometimes…and to have two of us (Travis and I) working together and my trusting his judgment and abilities – he delivered. That is just about all that can be said – He DELIVERED.

Tony & Marybeth

Our thanks to Mitchell Custom Homes for building us a beautiful new home in Mystic Shores. The entire process was a very positive experience: There were no surprises, no unexpected expenses and the house was finished on schedule. Travis Mitchell definitely made the building process a real pleasure and gave us “peace of mind!”
Ken & Mary Reid

We purchased our weekend/semi-retirement home in Mystic Shores nearly three years ago. We loved everything about the house and the community. Since our children and grandchildren also loved being out here we decided to add on. Travis built this home five years ago and we felt it would be a natural fit to ask him to consider constructing the addition. We were continually blown away throughout the process; from translating a rough pencil drawing to the final blueprints to securing off the access area to the rest of the house, to overseeing every detail of his subcontractor’s work. He and his wife, Donna, afforded us the peace of mind even though we were three hours away most of the time, our home was being looked after. Travis was not only professional in every aspect, which is important, he exceeded our expectations. The standard of workmanship, in addition to the integrity and reputation he has earned, has made this family very happy with their decision to settle in Mystic Shores.
Al & Pam Cosart

Working with Travis Mitchell was a pleasure from the moment we stepped onto the property until the day we received the keys to our dream home. Travis was efficient, precise, helpful, patient and always interested in what we, the customers, desired. Travis’ management skills are remarkable. We were 100% satisfied with our building experience with Mitchell Custom Homes
Kearney & Gail Morgan

Sharon and I met Travis Mitchell and his team in 2003, while interviewing builders in the Canyon Lake area. He came highly recommended. We were more than impressed by Travis’ knowledge and resume: we felt comfortable having him as our building “consultant.” The building process was exciting, and our end product was more than we expected! Our home was completed on time and on budget in 2004. Although the designer, superintendent, and subcontractors did their jobs, Travis was on site practically every day making sure the job was done right. We’ve watched Travis grow, and build many homes in the area. He builds beautiful, high quality custom homes ‘on time.’ His building sites are the cleanest of all builders – and that speaks of his commitment to quality.

Travis stood behind his product after we moved in, and we know he will do the same for you. It’s our pleasure to recommend Travis Mitchell Custom Homes.

Leon & Sharon Keeble

A home builder with strong communication skills was the key to our project since we would be living overseas during construction. From our initial meeting, Travis Mitchell asked the right questions about our design plans and schedule. During the process, he kept us well informed on the progress of our house and provided thorough developmental reports with pictures and answered our questions on a timely basis via phone and e-mail. Any potential problems we noticed were already on their way to being fixed by the time we talked with Travis, and he followed up on every item of concern. We have friends who are in the construction industry who have given us high marks on the quality of construction. Our home turned out exactly as we had planned – on time and, more importantly, on budget. Upon entering the driveway, everyone says “Wow!” but once they are inside, they also see that it’s a comfortable family home – one we’re planning on enjoying for many, many years.
Don & MJ Selle

Our major obstacle in building this home was what we referred to as “Long Distance Building”. We are from the Beaumont area (east of Houston) and were concerned that distance would impair not only the building progress but quality as well. Having built two other homes, we knew local building was a headache, but 250 plus miles away had to be much worse. We were wrong. Travis and his team took care of the project, working through everything down to the last detail. Like a giant puzzle, all the pieces fit perfect with Travis doing the tweaking. This is not to say there were not issues during the build, but Travis kept the project on course and gave us exactly the home we wanted. Our comment to folks wanting to build is this; meet with Travis, agree on your plans and site layout, make your selections, then take an extended vacation and leave it to Travis. You’ll return to exactly what you expected.
Mike & Darleen Daniels

We feel very fortunate that we had our home built by Mitchell Custom Homes. With the attention to detail and quality workmanship, we couldn’t be more pleased with Mitchell Custom Homes and Travis Mitchell. Our home was built ahead of schedule and on budget. Travis Mitchell makes you feel like you’re truly his priority and delivers on what he says he will do. From our experience, you can trust Travis Mitchell Custom Homes and we would highly recommend Travis Mitchell to build your home to!
Larry & Sue Hudak

Letter written to Peggy Sampson from P.S. Designs and working relationship with Travis Mitchell of Mitchell Custom Homes:

Carliss and I wanted to touch base with you to let you know that our new home in Mystic Shores is now complete. I know you talk to Travis periodically, so you may already be aware of this. The house turned out even better than we expected and needless to say we are extremely proud of it and very grateful to everyone that had a hand in it.

We also wanted to thank you for the wonderful work you did for us in the very beginning of our dream. Your patience and knowledge of home design, as well as your knowledge of the area really helped us put our thoughts and ideas on paper. Just so you know, the home building experience was not nearly as stressful as we had imagined it to be. The entire process of design, decision making and construction went incredibly smooth. Even the obstacles that we had to deal with were, in my opinion, very minor. All this is a credit to you and Travis.

Don & Carliss Sanches

Travis and Donna coached and helped us through the process of building our dream home in the Texas Hill Country. They gave us excellent recommendations on designers, local banks, landscapers, audio/visual installers and the like. The house came in on time and under budget. Best of all, we are so pleased with the home!

We can’t say enough about Travis’s skill and integrity, or Donna’s counsel on the myriad of selections that are necessary to fully finish out a truly custom home. We had never built a custom home before and they expertly guided us through the process. We feel indebted to them for their advice, patience, and commitment to our vision of what we wanted our home to be. I can’t imagine a better building team!

John & Pam Branum

My wife, Cindy and I learned of Mystic Shores by reviewing hill country property for sale on the internet. We fell in love with the spectacular views and with all of the neighborhood amenities. We purchased a lot and now needed to find just the right builder and designer to create our dream home. We soon met Travis Mitchell and began to discuss our design ideas with him. Over the next two years, until we were ready to move, we continued to communicate with Travis. One of the things that we appreciated the about him was that he never tried to pressure us to build by a certain time. He was ready to submit a price quote and to begin construction when we were ready.

We were now about to begin to meet the Dream Team. Perhaps the strongest aspect of Mitchell Custom Homes is the group of professionals that Travis has assembled. The team consists of Travis, Peggy Sampson, Terri Western and a group of the finest sub-contractors that you could hope to find. Peggy, a designer of custom homes, takes your ideas and creates an absolute work of art, all with patience and professionalism. Terri becomes involved with the many interior and exterior decorating choices to be made. She is an invaluable asset. Travis oversees the entire design process and then rolls all of the choices made into a firm price quote.

Travis works closely with each sub-contractor to hold down labor and material costs without sacrificing quality. This enables him to offer fair and very competitive pricing. We found Travis to be a true hands-on professional. We were impressed with his constant attention to detail, his work being performed by the various crafts, his promise to always maintain a clean job-site and much more. Travis kept us in the loop throughout the construction and frequently sent pictures of the progress being made. Changes that we initiated to the original design were addressed promptly and he never lost patience with our requests.

Travis has an excellent rapport with the Mystic Shores building committee and the Property Owners Association staff. This really comes in handy when it’s time to submit the site-plan drawings and the blueprints for approval. He is highly respected by the sub-contractors that he employs. They work harder for him because they know that he expects and will accept nothing but their finest efforts.

Travis completed our home earlier than promised date and now stands ready to address any warranty issues should they occur. We highly recommend that others allow Mitchell Custom Homes to become their custom builder. He is good to his word and that means a lot when you embark upon a project of this magnitude.

In summary, we came to Mystic Shores in search of a quality builder to construct our dream home, what we received was a beautiful Mitchell Custom Home and a new friend.

We had a wonderful building experience with Travis, Donna, and all of their trades. My husband and I had never built a home before and we were new to the New Braunfels area. Therefore, it was overwhelming trying to figure out which builder we could trust to build a quality home for our family. From the beginning we were very confident in our decision to allow Mitchell Custom Homes build our home. The process was smooth, organized, and timely. The construction site was kept very clean and all of the trades/vendors were genuinely interested helping us make the best decisions for our home. Now, we have a beautiful home that we get to spend the rest of our lives in! Thank you Mitchell Custom Homes!

I feel a need to put in a comment about our wonderful builder, Travis Mitchell. He responded immediately to a few MINOR things that needed attention. I really think that Travis believes, “If my home owners aren’t happy, I’m not happy.” During the construction period we had many of his subs tell us that we were so smart to choose Mitchell Construction because he never cuts corners and builds a home the way is should be built.

If we built another home rest assured we’d certainly choose Travis Mitchell again. And on top of that he and his wife and business partner, Donna, made the whole custom building process a pleasant experience.

Dear Travis – we have lived in the wonderful home you built for us 11 years now. My how time flies. I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate the quality and functionality of our home. We still love it, and still appreciate it’s beauty and what it means to us.

The “Who”: We interviewed a number of builders and selected Mitchell Custom Homes due to their references, due to Travis’ family roots in the area (north Canyon Lake), and due to Travis’ and Donna’s experience, skills, and customer orientation.

The “How”: Travis’ skills as an experienced general contractor were evident and appreciated. Early on, he worked tirelessly and in detailed fashion to nail down the scope of work to eliminate surprises. Travis worked effectively with our designer. He managed his subcontractors’/suppliers’ scopes of work, their schedules, and their issues without any intervention by us. He worked collaboratively with our other contractors (e.g., landscaper, audio/visual). Donna was knowledgeable, efficient, creative, and friendly in working with us on our interior selections. She also effectively documented our decisions to eliminate surprises.

The “When”: We were flexible regarding schedule and thus did not need nor want our contract price to include a premium for a move-in deadline. Nonetheless, even though the contract did not mandate a completion date for Travis, we were delighted that Travis hit our target date.

The “What”: The result is the finest home that we have ever owned. We frequently look at one another and ask, “Can you believe that we get to live here?”

We highly recommend Mitchell Custom Homes.

Mitchell Custom Homes made the building of our house fun and exciting. Initially we interviewed several Custom Builders and chose Mitchell Custom Homes because of Travis Mitchell’s attention to detail, helpful suggestions and good reputation.

We lived out of town during construction so Travis and his Wife, Donna would send us pictures and videos regularly. Donna had good advice all thru the selection process which was very helpful. When we visited the construction site we always found it clean and organized. All the Tradesmen were very professional and had been working with Travis for a number of years. Our questions and concerns were always answered or addressed immediately.

The house was completed right on time, within budget and the workmanship exceeded our expectations.

We would highly recommend Mitchell Custom Homes to any of our friends or family considering building a house in the future.

We have been in our home for a year now and would not change a thing! Any “bugs” we’ve had, were fixed immediately and without any hassle.

Travis built our “Tuscan” home better than we anticipated. Travis and his crew are amazing and Very professional. We had limited space on our lot and Travis worked hard to accomplish what we wanted. I also appreciate the suggestions and help Donna gave us in selecting colors, flooring, fixtures, etc.

We would highly recommend Travis Mitchell Custom Homes to anyone wanting to build a custom home. Thanks Travis!
