Holiday Treats


Posted on 27th November 2017 by Grand_Homes in Dallas Real Estate

Thought I would share some of my favorite holiday treats and recipes I like to make with my family.

We love to be lazy, drink hot cocoa and watch Christmas Movies in our PJs on the weekends and found this treat to be very festive and inspiring.

Naughty or Nice Grinch Hot Chocolate

Grinch Hot Cocoa

Cookies are always a must during the holidays, and peanut butter are my favorite! Just add in a little Peppermint and you’re good to go!

Peppermint Cookie Butter Blossoms


A classic- Muddy Buddies or Reindeer Chow; always fun, festive and little messy. A perfect snack on the go with the right amount of sweetness. Plus add in your favorite candies!

Peppermint Muddy Buddies


If you love Oreos as much as the next person, then here is a recipe to try. To make it more Chirstmas-y, top with crushed peppermint candy, and maybe add a little Bailey’s

Peppermint Oreo Truffles


Now, I don’t bake very often, but when I do, I like to decorate, and these cupcakes are pretty inside and out.

Vanilla Candy Cane Cupcakes


Enjoy these desserts, fun times with family and friends and Happy Holidays from Grand Homes!

Please note none of these recipes are mine, but ones I have tried; found on Pinterest

Grand Homes on the Importance of After-sales Support


Posted on 17th January 2017 by Grand_Homes in Dallas Real Estate

Available Homes, Grand Homes, tips

For a lot of new homeowners, the support and assistance of their home builder will greatly help them through the transition phase. That is, the time between moving in and getting acquainted with the new house. This is why Grand Homes recommends that you carefully look into your home builder’s after-sales support before making the purchase.

At any time during the moving-in period, you may suddenly find that a certain part of your new home isn’t to your liking or that it needs a little tweaking. Whatever your concerns are, you should be able to feel comfortable enough to approach your home builder about these; and more importantly, you should be able to reach them without trouble. There have been many instances where a home builder suddenly disappears once the house has been turned over to the buyer. While we do hope this doesn’t happen to you, it’s better to err on the side of caution and check their after-sales support before agreeing to purchase the home.

We at Grand Homes pride ourselves in having a strong after-sales support team that provides you with fast and efficient assistance regarding your newly acquired home. We want you to have a stress-free transition phase, and if this means providing you with assistance at any time during your moving-in phase or even after you’ve settled in, then we’d be glad to help any way we can.

For a home builder that you can trust, you can always rely on Grand Homes. Feel free to get in touch with us for questions or inquiries.
