What Our Home Owners Say

"Wow! What a wonderful experience I have had with Dean. He has gone above and beyond my expectations of a custom home builder. Even though he has other projects working, he makes me feel like I'm the only one. I would highly recommend Dean Cathey for your next remodel or custom home."
— Priscilla Lannelli, Rockwall, TX
"We are so pleased with our home built by Dean Cathey. He is an excellent builder who stands by his work. We found Dean to be a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend him to anyone interested in building a custom home. Thank you, Dean Cathey, for giving us the opportunity to live in such a lovely home in this great community. It suits us perfectly and your commitment to meeting our needs has meant so much to us. You are not only our home builder, you have become our friend."
— Jon and Marcy Brown, Rockwall, TX
"Our friends told us that building a custom home would be a very stressful experience... but it wasn't. We were very impressed with the level of service we received while building our home. Working with Dean made building our new home very enjoyable. We could always reach Dean when we had a question or a new idea to discuss. He treated us as if we were his only clients! His knowledge and input helped us make good decisions and kept the project moving along."
— Kent and Karen Birdsong, Rockwall, TX
"Dean, Thank you for building us an awesome house, and for continuing to show up when there were problems. We hope you are as proud of the house as we are!"
— Andrea and Casey Burke, Rockwall, TX
"Ron and I would like to express our gratitude to you for being such a good builder and great person to work with. We look forward to many happy years here in the house you helped us build into a home."
— Ron and Leilane Rutledge, Rockwall, TX
"It really says a lot about a builder's reputation for integrity when the contractors and other people that work directly with him go out of their way to tell you what a good builder you've chosen. From the brick supplier all the way to the officer at the title company, we kept hearing nothing but great things about Dean. His reputation is well deserved."
“When we first started the process for building our dream home, we knew it was going to be a challenge to find a builder. We talked to four builders but Dean Cathey stood out because of his years of experience and his ability to work with us and pretty much build our home with a set of plans, hundreds of pictures and our ideas. The final project turned out even better than what we could have ever imagined. Our home is definitely not of the cookie cutter variety that you see springing up everywhere, and Dean did not hesitate one bit in taking on such a unique project. Another important factor that was on the top of our list was finding a Christian builder who we could trust, and Dean’s strong faith in God made us feel even more comfortable. Thanks, Dean, to you and your crews. You all did a great job and we were blessed to have you as our builder.”
— Richard and Nellie Gilbert
“Dean Cathey is an excellent home builder and contractor. As an interior designer, I have worked with many contractors and I can say with no hesitation that Dean is one of the best! Dean and I have worked on a number of projects together, including a new home for myself, and have found him to be very professional but comfortable to work with. He has extensive experience, expertise and knowledge in all aspects of construction and has built a reputation of hard work, integrity and diligent work ethics, and I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
— Doris Younger, ASID, RID
“We found Dean Cathey Custom Homes to be fair, honest, and now a friend for life. He listens, makes suggestions, and does what the customer wants. He was at the building site most every day and when he was not there he always answers his cell phone. We would strongly recommend Dean for a 2000 square foot home or a 15000 square foot home. You will be happy you selected Dean as your builder.”
— Dale Aymond, ION Associates, Inc.
“Dean Cathey built our home in south Rockwall county in 2005/2006. Dean was very attentive through the entire process and he was very helpful and flexible when changes were requested. He is a "good guy" that pays attention to quality and speed, and we highly recommend him.”
— Ron and Leilani Rutledge
“We love our new Dean Cathey home. The support we received during the construction process was excellent. We have referred our friends to Dean Cathey. Their dream homes are underway.”
— Tamee and Brad Schroepfer
“In the past, I've had difficulty in finding contractors who deliver what they say in terms of schedule, cost and professional quality... But Dean Cathey is the exception. He completed a major bathroom renovation in my town home and we could not be happier with the results. The design, finish and attention to the finest detail exceeded my expectations. Dean proved to be both professional as well as customer-focused. We were so impressed that we used Dean for several other major renovation projects... We have never been disappointed. Without hesitation, I give Dean my highest recommendation.”
— Joe Siniscalchi
"We highly recommend Dean Cathey Custom Homes. We had the pleasure of working with Dean and his team under what was a less than ideal circumstance…our home had been substantially damaged by a tornado resulting in an almost complete rebuild. While we heard the horror stories of others dealing with builders looking to simply do the minimum possible and take advantage of those in a desperate situation, Dean brought a sense of confidence and trust as he partnered with us to ensure that we had a home that exceeded our expectations. He worked with us every step of the way, acted as a both a consultant and advocate on our behalf. His attention to detail and style helped us to design our home in a way that not only improved the appearance inside and out, but provided increased functionality throughout. He and his team were patient and responsive to answer our many requests, questions and changes throughout the design and construction. Dean was more than just a contractor, he was a friend that we could count on and are grateful to have worked with him."
— Julie and John Tomko
