Waldo Homes —A heart-winning builder

Meet Waldo Homes. A family-owned company in the Rio Grande Valley that has built a solid reputation for honest, personalized, and caring service by building some of the most outstanding custom homes you will ever find. The talented Waldo Homes team includes founder Luis Waldo, his wife Teresa, their daughter Karen, their son Danny, and his wife, Allison. Waldo Homes is all about family: as a family, they love what they do, and their wish is to help other families fall in love their new Waldo-built home.
The company has won many awards for excellence in construction since its start in 2004. And this year, Waldo Homes was honored by their peers in the industry with six awards—the most of any builder in the area—including the coveted grand award: “Best of Show.”
Yet while winning awards is impressive, what the Waldo Homes team is most proud of is winning the hearts of its customers who consistently recognize the company for its “excellence in customer service,” and for building homes that impress the soul. To build a home that makes that kind of impression takes a team with a passion for wanting to go above and beyond what customers would expect. From uniquely designed exteriors highlighted with beautiful accents—like a shining tile cupola—to majestically inspiring interiors that are rich in detail, to the complimentary blend of materials, colors, textures, and finishes, Waldo Homes are built to dazzle. Whether it’s a grand entrance with a curved marble stairway, custom designed ceilings, oversized natural tile flooring, or exotic granite countertops, the Waldo team works in synergy to create a vision of beauty and elegance that their customers had dreamed of. It’s a passion for wanting to amaze their buyers by what’s commonly called the “Waldo Wow Factor.”
For the majority of us, buying a new home is the largest investment we will ever make, and we have the expectation that our investment is protected by quality construction and superior energy efficiency. But at a time when every home is always represented as having those qualities, how do can we know for sure? We can’t. Unless we’ve done our homework and chosen a builder carefully—one that builds certified high-performance homes. And for that, we ask for proof.
Accordingly, if you are impressed with what your eyes see in a Waldo home, you’ll be happy to know that what’s behind the walls of the home is even more impressive. The company’s model home, which won the “Best of Show” mentioned above, was certified in the BUILT TO SAVE™ program as a high-performance home. A licensed, third-party home energy Rater was contracted to inspect the home while it was being constructed and then to test it after completion to verify that the BUILT TO SAVE™ checklist of items was done. This ensured that the home would provide more comfort, better indoor air, and use less electricity than a similar home built to basic standards. If you combine the awesome beauty and elegance of what you can see in a Waldo home, with its certificate of high performance from BUILT TO SAVE™ for the things you can’t see, the effects of the “Waldo Wow Factor” are magnified by the peace of mind of knowing you are buying a truly great home.

In continuing its success by listening to what customers want, Waldo Homes has expanded from building Mediterranean-style custom homes to now including homes with a contemporary and modern architectural style. Contemporary designs are ideal for homeowners who want a unique home, one that offers a simpler look yet one that stands out from the ordinary and will impress. This, of course, sounds like a perfect fit for Waldo Homes, and the introduction of the “Waldo Wow Factor 2.0” to a whole new type of customer.
While other builders have tried to replicate Waldo Homes’ success by mimicking their unique architectural designs and ideas, the fact is, the company’s success is rooted in something that can never truly be duplicated—what the Waldo Homes team carries in their heart. The company’s culture is centered around family values and treating others as they themselves would like to be treated. The Waldo family would expect only the best if they were the ones buying a home, so that is what their company provides: the very best—along with building a home with heart that wins the hearts of their buyers.
