We have been building homes of excellence for more than 25 years in the DC Metropolitan Washington Area, with particular emphasis on luxury development projects in Northern Virginia and Montgomery County, Maryland. More recently, we have focused our work in Great Falls, McLean, Oakton, Fairfax Station, Clifton, and Alexandria. The Company is particularly dedicated to a high standard of craftsmanship and attention to detail while ensuring an outstanding level of customer satisfaction. True to its mandate, Botero Homes has designed, built, and sold a number of homes that reflect every aspect of comfort, luxury, and attention to detail.
10 Good Reasons Why You Should Choose Botero!
1. Lowest Costs
You will be assured that you get the REAL cost + the management fee. In marble and ceramic we get a 70% savings. In foundations and framing 30%, and in plumbing and electrical fixtures 50%. All of these savings are passed to the client. No Exceptions!
2. Lowest Engagement Fee
When you sign the contract with Botero, we only charge $7,500 for houses between 5,000 sqft and 10,000 sqft and $15,000 for houses above 10,000 sqft.
3. Total Transparency
The money received from the client and the bank is managed in a completely independent bank account where the homeowners have access online and can monitor all transactions 24/7. Every month a report is delivered to the client with details of all expenditures for each item of the budget, showing the progress of the construction and the balances for every chapter. Accounting is open to the clients at any time and the invoices charged to Botero are the same used for the client accounting. The client may talk openly with every vendor about the prices charged or may suggest to Botero a particular vendor that will offer an even better price or promotion. The objective is to build the home at the lowest possible cost.
In addition to complete bank account transparency, our clients have 24/7 access to their Client Portal on our backend system called BUIDER TREND, which the client may check any charge in the accounting of his home at the same time we do the charge to the Bank account. Homeowners receive a daily report of activities taking place in the construction of their home and a monthly accounting report with a budget control presentation. This, plus the bank’s online connection, will facilitate the process of monitoring by the client, making it more transparent than ever!
4. Assistance with Purchase of Lot
Botero Homes has a Land Acquisition Specialist who is a licensed Realtor and available to help Botero Homes’ clients find the perfect lot for their dream home. We offer the client the service of finding, selecting and buying the lot.
5. Unique Homes
Every home is unique. Although the client may want us to follow the basic elements of a previous home or may request us to buy ready-plans, we devote hours to the process of customizing and adjusting the plans to the County Code. Mr. Botero himself, with a team of professionals in the architectural, construction and financial fields, works very closely with every step of the process of designing and drafting your home. The same team will be there in the field, supervising the construction process.
6. 18-Time Award Winning Builder & Best References
(a) Five-time First Prize winner of the “Monument Award” as “Best of the Best” in Luxury Homes. (b) Four-time winner of the distinction by the U.S Commerce Association as “Best of Vienna” and now in 2013, “Best of Reston”. (c) Selected as Member of the “BUILD- PAC” for extraordinary dedication to the Home Building industry by the National Association of Home Builders. (d) Two “Best Feature” GALA awards. (e) Written testimonials from our homeowners.
The process of building the “client’s dream” has to be pleasant and happy. It is almost like a marriage between Builder and Client for more than one year. Botero’s mission is that at the end of the stressful process, we have a “friend for life”. If Mr. Botero finds at the initial process of plan design and budget preparation that there is no “empathy” between Builder and Client, he will respectfully decline to participate. We at Botero need to be happy and to take pleasure out of building your Home.
8. Customized Individual Budgets
A budget is custom prepared for each home, side by side with the owner, to achieve the lowest possible cost and prevents you from having “surprises” later on.
9. Best Attitude
A “Yes, we are glad to do it” attitude prevails everywhere in the Botero Homes Team. Each one gives the best of themselves, including overtime and holidays, to keep the client happy. The working environment in the Botero organization is pleasant and of constant activity about satisfying client needs.
10. Good News!
The joint effort to achieve the lowest cost pays. Every time, with no exceptions, when we finish a home, the client finds that the value of the home in the market exceeds by $200,000 to $700,000 the cost spent in construction. This means you get “Instant Equity” because of simple market law: you got the house at real wholesale cost but you will sell it at retail.
