There aren't enough people like Joe Stuever in this world! By far, he exceeded our expectations and helped us find multiple properties in beautiful Belle Oaks. We were pleased to purchase these lots, but he made the experience even better by tending to every request we had. As home builders, we value land that is backed by integrity. Joe's knowledge, honesty, and perseverance gave us the confidence we needed to move forward with these purchases. Belle Oaks is already one of the most desirable communities in the Texas Hill Country, and with dedicated professionalism like Joe's, it is sure to produce many more happy families! Ultimately, the greatest thing about our purchases has been gaining a strong, lasting relationship with not only Joe, but Southerland Communities. We are ever so grateful we stopped in!

I just wanted to take a moment to share my experience while purchasing land at Belle Oaks. My wife and I have purchased multiple properties over the past 17 years but have never embarked on the journey of purchasing land. I will be retiring from the world's greatest Air Force in July 2021 and elected to build our “forever” home in the great state of Texas. We were very apprehensive as we embarked on our quest to find the right home site because it's unfamiliar territory. This purchase was very significant because my family and I endured and overcame a very tumultuous past three years. We set out on a spontaneous trip one Saturday morning to visit model homes/communities in order to glean ideas for our dream home. One sales rep suggested we visit Belle Oaks and meet with Mary Beth Glosson. That is the point when all the stars aligned.

Mary Beth is very consummate and passionate professional! We immediately felt connection from the very first telephone conversation. Our instincts proved to accurate as she welcomed us with an authentic willingness to find the perfect home site for our family. She took the time to educate us on the land-buying process, informed us on future plans for the community/local area, carefully listened to our desires, then we set off to view potential sites. I was floored when my wife fell in love with the first site we visited. She turned to me and said “babe, this is the one”. I hadn't seen that look in my wife's eyes for three years and that spoke volumes but I still wasn't fully convinced and could not share my wife's vision with that particular homesite. Mary Beth patiently listened and addressed my reservations by showing us several other potential candidate sites that matched our wish list…I still wasn't convinced. That's when she impressed us the most. Mary Beth thought outside the box and drove us to a previously developed community where I was able to visualize what our homesite would look like after development. That was the turning point for me.

We probably would have walked away from what we now know is the perfect homesite for the Peart Family if it wasn't for Mary Beth. She was also accessible and very responsive to address ANY questions we had after securing our lot. Mary Beth exudes confidence, was extremely knowledgeable, and astutely addressed every concern we had during our visit. My wife and have a particular set of criteria and very high standards when engaging in business ventures and we do not deviate. Mary Beth exceeded our expectations and has etched permanent residence in our contact list. We will confidently refer her to everyone looking to purchase land in the future. You are very lucky to have her on your team!
