Where do I even begin? I fell head over heels in love with Garman homes over a year and a half ago, and I told my husband we would one day own/build a Garman home. I was sure of it. So when they revealed they would be building in Knightdale Station (where our family wanted to be), you can only imagine our excitement. Their whole vision for their homes is on point. The quality of their homes is unmatched. And I love how transparent and authentic they are as a company. Every single person who works for Garman/Fresh Paint is so easy to work with and super personable. Their team genuinely cares about you and your home. They are cultivating true community right from the start. Laurel, Krista, and Danica specifically have been absolutely incredible. They make the whole process lots of fun and totally seamless. Our home closes in June, and it still feels surreal that we get to own and live in our dream home. Someone pinch me. We are so pumped to raise our growing family here, and to top it off, we have friends building only a few houses down. I'm convinced Garman is the way to go if you are looking for a home that is going to be more than just a house -- but a place to rest, connect, and gather with family and friends. As I always say, I'm a Garman girl through and through!
