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 actual closing date at the time of contract. If we miss your 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.
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!
