You’ll be able to go shopping or find some wholesome activities for the entire family. There’s also a large variety of places to dine from a cheeky diner the kids will love to a nice winery for date night.

Shaddock Homes Places #1…

Categories: Awards & Recognition, Events, Shaddock Homes | Posted: June 15, 2018 | Comments Off on Shaddock Homes Places #1…

Last night was the Dallas Business Journal’s Middle Market 50 awards and we are beyond thrilled to announce that we are the #1 fastest growing middle market company in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Shaddock Homes has been working hard to deliver dream homes with superior craftsmanship to all of our homebuyers. Check out this article for more information on the Middle Market 50 and our growth.

The Dallas Business Journal also did a wonderful write up on Peter H. Shaddock which you can find below:

For 50 years, Plano-based Shaddock Homes has specialized in building custom, luxury homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The key to the company’s longevity and growth, CEO Peter Shaddock said, has been building the most beautiful houses. “Quite frankly, we’re better than our competition,” he said. “We have better looking stuff.”

Since 2015, Shaddock Homes has grown its headcount by eight, to 54 employees. Far more impressive is the company’s revenue growth: $89 million in 2015, $126 million in 2016, and a whopping $277 million last year. The company has a strong reputation in the North Texas homebuilding industry, said Ted Wilson, principal of Dallas-based Residential Strategies, which analyzes the Dallas-Fort Worth residential market. “Shaddock Homes is a great story,” Wilson said. “They build a really high-quality house and they’re very active throughout Dallas-Fort Worth.” “The work ethic in that family is unbelievable,” he added. “They know how to make a deal. They have kind of a folksiness about them, but they’re very smart, very shrewd.”

Shaddock Homes faces growing competition in the market, Peter Shaddock said. “What’s happened is the Dallas Metroplex has been so successful that a lot of competition has moved into the area,” he said. “Lots of competition creates shortages in labor supply and higher labor prices because everybody needs (workers). Lot prices rise. Material shortages also cause everything to go up. Mortgage rates are going up, so it squeezes your buyer into buying less house.” To combat some of the problems, Shaddock is building slightly smaller homes to keep the price down, he said. Tradition and homeowner satisfaction in the higher-priced home market, and the focus on building north of Interstate 635, differentiates Shaddock Homes, he said. The company offers a variety of innovative home designs and constantly tries to provide exterior and interior craftsmanship that distinguish it from other Dallas homebuilders, he added.

“Our houses are supposed to appeal to not the average guy, but the average abnormal guy,” Shaddock said. “Somebody who has a good income, like doctors. A lot of people build south of LBJ. We build north of LBJ.” Attention to detail, creativity and the ability to understand homeowners’ needs allows the company to create functional, open floor plans, Shaddock said. The homes accommodate today’s most requested features, including clean-lined design, energy efficient materials and private baths for every bedroom in the house. The family home-building company has the characteristics of a smaller builder with the financial strength of a national homebuilding company, Shaddock said. Shaddock Homes builds in some of the most desired locations and highly regarded school districts, Shaddock said. The company’s communities are located in Carrollton, Celina, Dallas, Frisco, Lewisville, McKinney, Parker, Plano, St. Paul and Wylie.

Selecting your dream home is no easy task. There’s a million factors like school district and commute from your job. But don’t forget the fun part of moving where you get to explore a brand new area! Shaddock Homes currently builds in 17 communities, but 6 of those are in Frisco. So we want to highlight some of the best food and entertainment areas that service those 6 communities.

Legacy West

If you’re in the mood to shop till you drop a great place to explore is Legacy West. This is a 250-acre urban destination housing must-have retail, a vast variety of dining and so much more. The drive from all 6 of these communities is under 20 minutes and it worth every second. The retail space covers a wide variety of offerings from Tesla to Warby Parker. You can find clothes, home goods, accessories and more. If you need refueling while out, there’s also a diverse selection of dining options. You can grab a Starbucks drink while you shop, treat yourself to a sweet something from Sprinkles, grab something quick from Shake Shack or have date night at Toulouse. You can’t lose with choosing a day at Legacy West. Find out more here.

Dr. Pepper Ballpark

Looking for a fun outing for the whole family? You should consider a Rough Riders game at Dr. Pepper Ballpark. Nothing says a great fun fueled day like enjoying America’s Favorite Pass-time, Baseball. The Rough Riders season is in full swing with a full schedule of home games. You can procure single game tickets for between $8-25 with many exciting promotional nights as well. If you get too hot out at the game the stadium offers the most unique water feature in a professional sports venue, the Choctaw Lazy River. Find out more about events here.

Toyota Stadium

This soccer-specific stadium is home to FC Dallas, but that doesn’t limit the events of the stadium. Along with the soccer season in full swing (tickets vary from $25-$75 each) there’s a special event coming up in October. The National Soccer Hall of Fame Induction weekend will be October 20th and features the popular band Imagine Dragons.
