As soon as you meet Heaven Porteous, vice president of The Avant Group, you’ll know this builder is like no other. Her creativity, attention to detail, and enthusiasm for the homes they are building and customers they are attracting is a breath of fresh air.

You can tell that she is excited about what this custom home builder is bringing to one of the fastest-growing real estate markets in the nation — quality construction, modern design, top-of-the-line materials, and exceptional value.

“Capitalizing on the latest building techniques and industry relationships spanning over 30 years, can build with incredible quality both in material and craftsmanship without passing on unnecessary cost to the home buyer,” Porteous notes.

And there’s no better place than Northwest Dallas, she says.

Midway Hollow, an established neighborhood, is one of the hottest areas in Dallas right now, and this is where The Avant Group is building stunning, clean-lined modern and contemporary homes. This gives buyers the opportunity to enjoy all of the advantages a new home offers while walking the tree-lined streets, getting involved in the excellent local and private schools, or shopping at the close-by, local restaurants and gathering places.

Their first home is located at 3830 Valley Ridge Road, and has four bedrooms, three full and one half baths, and is on a corner lot that allows the home to have lots of natural light coming in the windows. There’s a large backyard and two outdoor areas for entertaining, too. Two more of their homes are already under construction at 3922 Valley Ridge Road and 3860 Dunhaven Road.

The Avant Group considers themselves “small batch builders” — they build homes in the same area so they can consolidate the trips made by their trade partners and build homes simultaneously, which will help keep their costs down. They are also pre-selling these homes so buyers can make some changes to suit their lifestyles.

“Today’s new construction buyers and remodelers yearn for the high-end finish out, energy efficiency and attention to detail found in multimillion dollar homes, and that is exactly what we strive to provide,” Porteous said.

But 3830 Valley Ridge Road is already full of designer details, including white oak floors, custom cabinetry, floating vanities and a vessel tub. The kitchen has stunning Italian made Bertazzoni appliances and quartz countertops. We also love the hidden features like using tankless hot water heaters and low E windows — truly every detail has been thought about. These will help with energy savings as well as adding to your new carefree lifestyle, right here in Midway Hollow.

“The Avant Group prides itself on fulfilling an unmet need in Dallas,” said Porteous. “Our building methodology allows our clients to get exactly what they want at a price point which other builders cannot meet.”
