A Few Comments From Previous Clients..

"Les Owens is very trustworthy"

LRO Residential completed our home at 5744 Caruth, Dallas, Texas in October last year. The work was done very professionally. We are very proud of this home and we would recommend Les Owens to anyone. The work went very well and was completed timely. Les used very competent sub-contractors and they were supervised extremely well. 

Les Owens is very trustworthy and his reputation is very important to him and he guards it accordingly. If I were to build another home, I most assuredly would use him again.

We have just moved into our new home on Woodland Drive in the Preston Hollow area of Dallas. Our very best decision was choosing Les Owens of LRO Residential as our builder. Les found the lot, introduced us to Brian Easley, our architect, and built the house. And we are thrilled with his finished work. 
It is uncanny how the project unfolded just as Les said it would. He finished on schedule and on budget. We found Les to be cordial, knowlegeable, professional, and very responsive to our questions and needs. Even after our move-in, Les continues to be very responsive. 
Les and his assistant Sharon did an excellent job of helping us manage all the decisions about finishes, fixtures, appliances and hardware. Rather than identify all the choices we needed to make at one time, we were given options near to the time a decision was required so as to not impact the schedule. Les assigned us lots of homework that took us to various distributors and warehouses around Dallas. We had fun making choices and when we had trouble with a choice, Les would always make a sound suggestion. During the process, Les became a friend. 
It is without hestitation that we recommend Les and LRO Residential. If you are considering building a new home in Dallas or Cypress Springs Lake, you absolutely should talk with Les first.

Les has been great to work with from start to finish. This is the first house we've built and he clearly laid out the process and timeline. In addition, he was very helpful when we had to make selections on cabinets, floors, knobs, paint colors, pretty much anything you can think of. Most importantly, he was great at communicating with us on everything and was available to speak or meet when we needed. If we ever built another house, we would definitely consider LRO Residential again.

"They were very professional"

We really enjoyed working with Les Owens and his staff at LRO. They were very professional, timely in their work and very knowledgeable in the home building process. We have recommended LRO to several friends and family because we feel that their work is very high quality! Les is very honest and kind and we loved every part of the process of working with him.




LRO built our home. It turned out beautifully and everything went so smoothly. Les Owens is terrific to work with. He gets our highest recommendation in every respect.

P. Nau


LRO Residential was the builder of my new home. I love the design and the architectural details of the home. Les Owens and his staff were a delight to work with - very professional, dedicated to providing the highest quality in both the work and service. The attention to detail in the home shines through in everything from the coordination of the various natural stones used in the baths, kitchen and laundry areas to the exposed antique brick in the foyer and along the sidewalks, driveway and atop the chimney. Les has built a team of partners that are as commited to creativity, perfection and integrity as he. Marlin Landscape provided a beautiful setting for the home and Green Electronics integrated the sound, internet, television and security systems. The strong mutual respect and passion for their work shared by these partners made LRO's creative vision a reality - and an extremely satisfied homeowner!
