My wife and I started out not knowing if we were going to build our home or purchase an existing one. Price and proximity played a key roll in our decision. With this in mind, one Sunday morning we got in our car and just drove. That’s when we came across McDonnell Development’s, White Feather subdivision in Manhattan. The sales representative was fantastic. She showed us all the different floor plans, prices, and told us about many options. After leaving we knew we’d look no further. This would be our future home. The prices were comparable to a used home that would need upgrading. It was a no brainer.
With any large purchase it can get very stressful. The sales representative walked us through the process and explained it every step of the way. It was a pleasurable experience.
After our home was completed and we moved in any concerns we had were dealt with in a timely and professional manner. We are happy that we are part of the White Feather family.
Who says DREAMS don't come true: My Husband’s and my Dream came true when choosing McDonnell Development. We shopped around many Builders and we felt McDonnell Development was the Best. We did our homework and received recommendations of good quality and dependable work about McDonnell Development. We are very happy with our (Ranch Home). Cannot say enough about their staff, they were always there to help us every step of the way. If someone asks me if they should have their house built by them, I would not hesitate to say yes.
Thank you McDonnell Development for making our Dream come true.
We’re so happy that we found McDonnell Development. Before we decided to build in the White Feather subdivision, we did check out other model homes from different builders throughout the surrounding areas. But, there was no comparison. We did not see any new houses within the price range and for the size of home that was better than at White Feather. We felt that we got the best value for our money. We absolutely loved the open floor plan of the home that we chose. We got a home with all of the options that we wanted for less than we would have paid with any other builder. The standard features that are offered were considered upgrades at other builders. The staff at White Feather were very friendly and knowledgeable with answering any questions that we had. The staff continued to be very friendly and extremely helpful throughout all of the building process. We have heard that building a new home can be very stressful, but the builders and staff at McDonnell Development helped make the whole experience a pleasant one.
Thank you McDonnell Development for building us our dream home.
