We started Garman in 2007 with the idea that we could hire extraordinary people who want to connect with our buyers and elevate the homebuilding experience. It was ambitious then. It’s ambitious now. We wouldn’t have it any other way. The four Garman Differences aren’t taglines. The Differences are who we are and why we’re here.
We hire Rock Stars. From our employees to our trade partners to anyone and everyone in between, we prefer to work exclusively with people who have great attitudes. People who make the best of any circumstance – they find a way, they make you smile, they may even seem a little off but they have great energy. That’s a Rock Star. Life is too short to work with grumpy people.
It's crazy and that's why we like it. We give you an estimated closing date at the time of contract and a guaranteed closing date after your cabinets are installed. If we miss your guaranteed date, we give you $1,000 towards closing costs. It's not about the money and it's not about never missing one. It’s about the fact that everyone works harder when they have a deadline. You deserve a team that wants to work hard for you.
After you move into your new home, then what? What’s covered by your new home warranty and what’s a homeowner responsibility? The G-Team is there to ensure a smooth transition from homebuilder to homeowner. Additionally, our Warranty team works closely with a select group of trades who helped build your new home to come back at 45 days and again at 11 months. This team not only inspects their own work and addresses any warrantable items, they also provide education on how to maintain your home for optimal performance.
When you build a Garman Home, a portion of the sale goes towards local causes and charities. Your home is a big deal, we think your purchase is an even bigger deal when it helps pay it forward for someone else. Whether we’re building Blitz Homes with Habitat for Humanity of Durham, or donating $200,000 to Duke Children’s Hospital, giving back is how we practice our gratitude for getting to do what we love and for loving what we can do together.
I would highly recommend Garman Homes to anyone interested in purchasing a new home. My wife and I were first-time home buyers and everyone at Garman was super helpful and accommodating throughout the process. Trent was a tremendous resource and was always so helpful and provided prompt responses, even after we closed. The home is quality and very well-built with high quality features. Richard also facilitated a seamless 1-year walk-through and coordinated the subsequent repairs. The communication with everyone from Garman is always excellent and we've been very pleased from Day 1!
