LONNA BERRY

Operations &
Marketing Manager

Monica Berry has been in the building-related industry for many years, including the 15 years since she and her husband, Lonnie Berry, founded Berry Homes in 2003. Operating mostly in the Mid-Valley area, Berry Homes is an established construction company, recognized as much for the owners’ integrity as for the detailed quality of their homes.

The high value that Berry Homes builds into its homes is indeed a statement of the company’s integrity and how they feel about the customer and about the homes they build.  Monica was quoted as saying, “People need to know that while we are in the homebuilding business to make a profit, we don’t let the bottom line dictate everything. We will never build a home that we wouldn’t want to live in ourselves.”

That type of thinking creates a company-wide attitude that focuses purely on the customer’s needs, and impacts everything that Berry Homes does and how it does it. In short, Monica and her team’s goal is to feel good about what they do for the customer. It is a work ethic that she is happy to pass on to her daughter, Lonna, who has recently joined the Berry Homes team to help out.

Monica and Lonna—mother and daughter—work side by side, each with their own responsibilities but always there to back each other up with the day-to-day operations of running Berry Homes. This family-owned company, headed by Lonnie Berry (husband/dad), specializes in building custom homes from the $125’s to the $500’s that are packed with all the extras and details that have become the signature of a home built by Berry Homes.

Monica’s extensive experience as a loan officer is a tremendous asset for customers who need guidance in this field. Her straightforward answers and her trustworthy nature are a breath of fresh air for homebuyers who just want to talk to someone who cares. Lonna’s job description is to be able to do pretty much everything her mom does. Whether it is marketing, financial management, helping customers with material selections, or just learning how to run a successful business, Lonna is lucky to have Monica as her mentor–and homebuyers are lucky to have a builder who is looking out for them.

Best business advice I ever received: Never let obstacles stop you from accomplishing your goals!

Our goal is… to provide quality, well-built homes that are packed with value to families so that they will refer us with confidence to their friends and other family members.

The secret to our company’s success… diligence, consistency, and prayer.

I’m thankful for: There are way too many to mention here, but the biggies are my awesome husband, who is the love of my life, and the beautiful family the Lord has given us.

Experience has taught me that… we can learn something new from everyone we meet.

LONNA BERRY

Operations & Marketing Manager

In my spare time… I help manage a little Italian restaurant, the first to ever introduce pizza to the RGV 68 years ago. I also spend as much time as I can with my 9, 7, 5, and 3-year-old children.

My real job description is… everything that needs to be done when mom isn’t around. Sometimes that’s marketing and accounts payable, and sometimes selections or Meet and Greets. I learn new things about our business every day in order to be prepared should I ever need to run the business.

I’m proud of my… parents. They have been through a lot in life. Neither of them has the foundations that most of society considers necessary to be successful in business, in regard to upbringing or education, especially. They are the greatest story of redemption and favor I know.

I’m inspired to succeed because… we need more small businesses that succeed because of love for their community, determination to do business with integrity, and poise to stand for what is right, not what is easy or cheap. We want people to know we love them more than we love success.

The secret to our company’s success is: We build each home as we would build our own, maybe better! We are honest, compassionate, and willing to do things to help our customers, even if it has nothing to do with homebuilding or will not directly benefit us. We make friends, not clients.

I’m thankful for… so much! Family, friends, clients, associates, and our community who all believe in us and recommend us to others. They are our most precious and effective sales and marketing tools. My parents have done much to build the legacy I am now able to carry.

The nicest testimonial about our company… it was on Facebook. Our dad helped a gentleman whose car was broken down on the side of the road. He was so impacted by dad that he wrote a review on our Facebook page. That’s who we are: we help those who need us, and our dad is the backbone of what we do and who we are.
