Grand History

Here at Grand Homes we love what we do! We are celebrating over 30 years of building extraordinary homes and creating an extraordinary experience for our homeowners.

Grand Homes was established in 1986 by its founder Stephen H. Brooks. He felt there was a need in the Dallas housing market for a company comprised of hardworking people dedicated to building quality homes. Homes that featured designs consumers wanted.

The rapid growth and immediate success of Grand Homes can be attributed to the creativity and dedication of Stephen Brooks. With over 30 years experience in the home building industry, he has been a key force in setting architectural trends. Grand Homes has sculpted some of the most popular features in the Dallas market such as front porches, stone accented exteriors, and second story verandahs.

Grand Homes continues to thrive in the Dallas market with innovative, award-winning architectural designs. Grand builds over 400 semi-custom homes a year in 30 neighborhoods around the metroplex.


Grand Homes is the proud recipient of the Consumers' Choice Award ... AGAIN

For eleven years, since 2007, Grand Homes has won the prestigious Consumers' Choice Award. The Consumers' Choice AwardTM (CCA) was established in 1986 to identify and promote business excellence. The CCA program each year commissions a survey in which consumers are asked to identify their favorite businesses. Respondents are asked to consider criteria such as Value, Professionalism, and Service when making their choice. Click here to learn more about CCA.

Mr. Stephen Brooks accepts the award from Dr. Jeffrey Chernoff, President and Chairman of Consumers' Choice Award.

The Consumers' Choice AwardTM is an initiative of Consumers' Choice Institute which has retained a leading independent research firm to conduct surveys in major Canadian and U.S. cities. It is unique in North America as the winners are determined by consumers and not by a panel of judges. It covers a broad range of categories of interest to both the public and business communities. Its purpose is to publicly identify those establishments that have been voted by consumers as being their choice for excellence. The Consumers' Choice AwardTM is a most prestigious tribute to businesses that serve their clients well. The program is encouraged by all levels of government and by business leaders.

Grand Homes is America's Best Builder!

Grand Homes is proud to have won America's Best Builder, awarded by BUILDER magazine.... TWICE!

The prestigious award is judged by a panel of industry experts for overall achievement and excellence in all facets of home building, including finance and operations, design and construction, customer service and quality, community service and marketing.

"Most builders excel in just one discipline, be it customer service, great design, construction expertise, or financial acumen," said Denise Dersin, editor in chief of BUILDER magazine, the leading magazine of the home building industry. "But our America's Best Builder winners manage to do it all. That is an amazing achievement, and even more so during these difficult times."
