When you walk into a Darling Homes model, it should already feel like home. Lee Crowder, Design Gallery and Model Home Branding Manager, discusses how every element of a Darling home is thoughtfully planned from the location to the design and sales experience to create a unique, positive experience for Dallas and Houston homebuyers.
“When you first walk into a Darling home, it really should feel like you’re coming to someone’s house. You should hear the music, smell the scent, it should feel special – like someone is welcoming you into their house,” Crowder said.
Highest Quality Locations
Long before construction begins, Darling Homes works to create the best possible experience for shoppers – starting with location. Whether you’re seeking a cozy neighborhood, a gated community or resort-style amenities, Darling has a something to fit your desires.
“Location is where people start their journey,” Crowder said. “It’s about amenities, school districts, the lifestyle that you want, and then finding the home plan that works for you.”
Darling’s homes designs appeal to a broad range of homebuyers and include many attributes not commonly found elsewhere. One thing that the homebuilder always provides its customers is a home filled with authentic architectural touches that you notice from the moment you enter the front door.
“Details are what it’s all about,” Crowder said.
Some of Darling Homes’ signature attributes come through in design details, such as thoughtfully planned transitions. These can take form in spacious entryways with arches that define different living areas, while providing a natural flow throughout the home.
Pairing varied ceiling heights, such as high ceilings in the living room with lower heights in dining areas, create an intimate volume that helps sound disperse through the home and creates a cozy atmosphere.
Another element that Crowder said stands out in the home designs is the placement of the study.
“In a lot of homes, the office space is right in the front when you walk in. In many of our larger products, we make sure to put the study in the back of the house so that it is private and truly is an extension of the workplace,” Crowder said.
Commitment to the Customer Experience
From homesite selection to interior personalization at the Design Gallery, Darling Homes is dedicated to giving customers an individualized and enjoyable experience.
“Hopefully, you feel and see something in yourself in the models,” Crowder said. “It should be a personalized experience, like something you would do with a friend or family.”
(Community) Sales Managers dedicate time to talk to shoppers to ensure they find the right home design for their lifestyle. From start to finish, the Darling team works together to provide a memorable journey for Texas homebuyers.
“I hope that when people walk through our models they’re inspired and excited,” Crowder said. “I hope it makes them feel at ease and excited about a future they didn’t know was within their grasp.”
