Clearwater Canyon

It was a gray overcast Friday two weeks after the Big Texas Freeze! Debra and I had decided to drive from Houston to Pipe Creek, Texas to meet with Skip Crosby and take a look at the land for sale at Clearwater Canyon. When we arrived, we were greeted with a warm and friendly smile, the kind you might get from an old friend. I remember telling Debra that I was gonna give it about a 10% chance that we would buy anything that day. We laugh about that statement often when we think about our future Hill Country home at Clearwater Canyon. After pleasantries we got in Skip’s truck and headed to Clearwater. He took us all over the property and showed us lots we initially thought we would be more inclined to purchase. Skip knew the land! He knew the history, how drainage ran on the various lots. We drove around in his ‘buggy’ as he called it and saw this beautiful place we were destined to live in. Skip spent most of the day with us, showing us several lots more than once. He knows the area because he’s from here! He knew the places to go, what to see and what to think about when deciding what and where to build. Towards the end of the day, Skip drove us to a spot on the lot we would end up buying and pointed out and said, ‘Look at that view!’ Then he said, ‘If I was building, this is where I would put the house!’ My wife and I looked at each other and we knew this was it! Skip was right! I’ve talked with Skip many times since that day when I had questions about the area. We bought our piece of the hill country that day from a friend!
Dave and Debra S.

We had never attended a land sale, but Clearwater Canyon was in the area where we had been looking. We had very specific requirements which were proving to be a challenge in finding the right property. We made an appointment, not knowing what to expect. Skip presented the properties and their specifics very well, never pressured us, and the whole sales process went very smoothly. AND after the sale, he continues to be responsive to our inquiries quickly! It has been a pleasant to work with Skip!!!
Leslie B. and Brian C.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I called Southerland Communities to inquire about a property in Bandera, Texas. When Mr. Kenny Spears picked up and answered all of my questions, I was pleasantly surprised. He was knowledgable, friendly, and listened to what I was looking for. He offered to take us on a VIP tour of the community where the lots are being sold. The tour showed us everything the area had to offer including walking some of the lots to see what worked best for my family. This is all without a complaint of it being after an ice storm shut down half of Texas!! Once we talked over the details and decided on a lot, he guided us through the whole process and kept us up-to-date on all the details. There was never a time where he didn’t get back to us via text, phone, or email. He was reliable, knowledgable, and honest when it came to all aspects of the property. I would recommend Southerland Communities and Kenny to anyone looking for land.
Michael C.

We want to thank Kenny for his help in the purchase of our property. His knowledge of Clearwater Canyon proved extremely helpful in finding the perfect lot for us. Thank you also for assisting us with the clearing and water well contractors. We will be clearing most of the cedar very soon and can’t wait to see it. We look forward to getting up that way and grabbing lunch with Kenny soon. Thank you again.
Kurt and Jill S.

I just want to take this time to commend Scott McGill for his time and service during our search for land/lot at Clearwater Canyon. Scott was very personable, down-to-earth, and easy to work with. He was very patient and answered all of our questions. We looked for land with a friend and Scott was able to work with us and made the process of purchasing this land as simple as possible. Because of his patience, professionalism, and our comfort level of working with him, both I and my friend purchased lots next to each other.
Soury P.

We had such a great experience with Scott McGill when looking for the right property at Clearwater Canyon. He was friendly and informative. He provided us one-on-one attention. I look forward to working with Scott again!
Szuhui A.

We’ve had an absolutely flawless experience with the sales team with Southerland Communities at Clearwater Canyon. It was such a blessing to work with James Forehand and Steve Brents through this process. Excellent customer service is an understatement. They’ve gone above and beyond with getting me answers to all my questions and concerns. I have not been through a more seamless process from beginning to end. They are professional and courteous and they treated us like we were old friends. Highly recommend! If I could give them 10 stars, I would.
Sherry G.

Bob and I just wanted to drop a quick note to thank you again for the great customer service. In today’s world, it’s hard to find people that care enough to make a difference. When we do find those people, we want to be sure to let them know how much we appreciate the thoughtfulness. We want to send a personal thank you to Todd Menger.

My family and I had been looking for a lot to build our dream house, and had the pleasure of working with Mark O'Shea for over a year. We viewed many lots and had many conversations about what mattered most, not only in what we were looking for but about life. Mark was patient and professional, consistently checking on us until everything lined up for the perfect piece of land. Thank you for all your help and encouragement, my family and I really appreciate you and all your time making his dream come true. I highly recommend you schedule a tour with Mark, you won't be disappointed!
George C.

Mr. Mark O'Shea has been very professional and knowledgable! He's been pleasant to work with, answered most, if not all of the questions and concerns we had as a firsttime land buyer. Thank you!
Rod and Marites M.

I really enjoyed working with Carol at the Canyons at Scenic Loop. Her outgoing personality and professionalism make it so easy for people to work with her. It was a real blessing to work with Carol. I am looking forward to referring many more clients to Carol because I know my clients will be treated right. Thank you Carol.
John B.

I would like to take this opportunity and personally thank Shonna Cooper with Southerland Communities for making my land purchase a wonderful experience. Shonna was meant to sell me my land, as she got to know my quickly and what my visions were. It was a sincere pleasure working with her.
Melissa W.

Mark has been fantastic throughout the whole process. Marion State Bank was equally easy to work with and the closing process was the best we've ever had.

The Canyons at Scenic Loop

The Canyons at Scenic Loop was very majestic and lived up to the hype that it was built up to be. Our first encounter with the office personnel was warm and welcoming. Our land consultant, Mark O'Shea, was very knowledgeable and informative about the entire property/location. Mark is very honest and straightforward. No sales pressure. The breathtaking scenic views sold the property! Upon viewing the model home, the on-site representative was very friendly and helpful! The entire experience has been seamless.

Robert L.

The views are so breathtaking that it didn’t take too long to decide that this is the place we want to spend most of our time on. Coming from the south valley of Texas, this would be a perfect change. Thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ. This will be our future home.

Francisco & Virginia R.

The Canyons at Scenic Loop

We loved working with Mark! He was great! This place is amazing and so breathtaking and everyone should come out and visit. If you do, you will sign on the dotted line for a lot the same day. Everyone is so wonderful to work with and makes you feel special!

Beau and Dionisia C.

A++. Great, welcoming, friendly, awesome experience. Very knowledgeable. Went above and beyond to show us multiple properties. Great/excellent customer service. Got all our questions answered.

Jonathan R.

Mark O’Shea is an excellent salesperson who showed us 9 lots in the hot Texas sun. He drove us around the neighborhood and considered our preference for the north facing lots and showed us a couple of options of lots. He also talked to his boss and helped us to make a good deal for the lot! Thank you, Mark. You are the best.

Rupa R.

Wonderful experience. Made our buying process a breeze. Felt very welcomed. Answered all of our questions to the T. Exceptional views!!!

Arturo & Alejandra M.

We are so excited to be lot owners in The Canyons at Scenic Loop! We have really enjoyed our experience with Southerland Properties. Mark O'Shea was so nice and professional, and really took his time showing us the property and answering all of our questions. We never felt rushed or pressured in any way, and learned a lot throughout the process. This is our first time buying a lot, so it was nice to have someone take such good care of us!

Dear Management Group,

Over the last several months my wife and I have purchased 2 lots in the Canyons of Scenic Loop working with Jason Schuchardt. We are pleased with the properties and the settings of views and surroundings. We are even more pleased not only with Jason but with the whole staff working in the business office. They are all friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Jason has gone out of way helping us with transportation to the lots when roads are being constructed. He has always responded to email and phone calls promptly and has worked to satisfy our requests without regard for the inconveniences to him. You are to be congratulation on assembling this great group to service the current and future owners of property in the Canyons of Scenic Loop. We look forward to being full time residents and enjoying this beautiful community.

Harvey M.

I'm so pleased to welcome the Gilles' to The Canyons. They are a wonderful couple. I have been working with them since January and I am looking forward to seeing them in our community.

Purchased two more properties and building new dream home.

Centennial Ridge
Texas Land Sale

We have finally found our dream property to build our dream home on! For years we have looked all over the Texas Hill Country for the perfect property to put our dream home on. We have gone to so many different land developments that were either too far away, too expensive, pushy sales people, or it just didn’t feel right.

We gave up for a while, when one day we came across Centennial Ridge in Bulverde, TX. From the beginning we were greeted with a smile and warm welcome from the front desk receptionist who introduced us to our sales associate Kenny Spears! Kenny was so friendly, professional, and never pushy. Kenny is an excellent listener, was attentive to exactly what we wanted and gave us tours of properties based on our interests.

We really appreciated Kenny’s patience, helpful suggestions, and all the hours he spent trying to help us figure out if what we wanted would work for those properties. We really liked one of the properties, but we were not able to make it back out to sign the paperwork, so Kenny arranged it so we could sign our paperwork on-line. The entire land buying process from start to finish was positive, professional, and everything just felt right!

Jon & Misty H.

Walking into Centennial Ridge for a land consultation, we did not think we would be walking out purchasing a lot, but we knew if the right opportunity came along, we would go for it! Todd Menger was our land consultant. He took the time to gather information from us, asked about our future plans and paired us with a few different lots that made sense for us. Boy, was he right! The whole experience has been nothing short of wonderful and it hasn't stopped. Anytime our builder has a question about the property, Todd has been there to help. It's a much better experience than we could have hoped for. We can't wait to build on home, and live in Centennial Ridge.

We wish to express our gratitude to Zachry Brents, our land consultant at Centennial Ridge, for his knowledge, support, and boundless patience as we navigated the process of exploring, assessing, and finally purchasing lot 78 at Centennial Ridge. Zach tirelessly walked several of the lots with us, directing us to his personal favorites, sharing his insights into the pros and cons of each, and drawing from his knowledge of the land and the surrounding area to provide us with the information we needed to make the best lot selection for our needs. We could not be more pleased with our lot purchase!
Brian K. and Hien V.

Thank you Zach! We really enjoyed the unexpected blessings this day brought to us. Thank you to you and Steve for an enjoyable and pleasant purchase experience. We will [be in touch] as I plan on asking questions in the future regarding recommended contractors.
Raul and Denise C.

I wanted to thank you for taking such great care of my clients the Woodards! Your professionalism and wealth of knowledge about the community was a great help to them in their decision to buy in Centennial Ridge. They are thrilled with their new homesite! I look forward to bringing future clients to visit with you about the community.

Christi K.

My husband and I were driving all around San Antonio trying to figure out where we wanted to build our forever home. My husband remembered some advertising about Centennial Ridge in Bulverde he had seen. And since we were near it, we decided to stop in for a visit and see what they had. As soon as we entered the building, we were greeted with smiling faces. This is where we met our amazing land realtor Todd. He gave some information about the site and then asked if we had time to look around and he would give us a tour of the properties. He drove us around the available sites talking about the pros and cons as they related to our wants and desires for property. When we found a few sites, we thought we would like he then proceeded to walked us around each of the properties so that we may compare each of them and really decided if each site was the one for us. We have never bought land before but with the help of Todd and all his years of experience we found a property that my husband and I fell in love with.

At this point Todd sent us to lunch and told us to think about our decision over and we would meet back up after lunch. Which I loved about Todd, I felt as he cared about us making the right decision for our family and not making a sale. He told us many times its about building relationships. During lunch we decided we loved the land so much we had to proceed. We went back and started the paperwork to purchase our land. Every person at Centennial Ridge made us feel so at home and comfortable along the way, which is very important to us. We looked forward to all the amazing memories we will build on in our new land and it is all because of Todd and the amazing people at Centennial Ridge. Our family thanks you for all your amazing help. Thank you, thank you!

Joshua & Alisha R.

Scott McGill was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the City of Bulverde, surrounding areas, the future neighborhood of Centennial Ridge, and all of the specifications to come. This was the first time that I have made a land purchase larger than 1 acre and Mr. McGill was very professional and patient while helping me choose the best plot of land that best suits the needs of my family. My husband was unable to make the trip to purchase the land and Mr. McGill spent time on the phone with my husband going over all important information and documentation. I am very grateful to have had someone with such knowledge and compassion during this stressful decision.

John & Tracy G.

We have completely enjoyed our land purchasing experience with Skip Crosby and his team. It took us 5 years to finally settle on the perfect piece of property. Skip has been extremely patient with us along the way and understood the importance of this milestone in our lives. We have personally visited several of the land openings Skip and/or one of his Colleagues have presented to us and could never make the commitment for one reason or another, mostly due to the inconvenience of each location. We finally purchased our forever property at Centennial Ridge in Bulverde TX. It truly offers everything we have been looking for all these years. Skip, we are eternally grateful to you and your team for making our lifelong dreams come true.

Rudy & Flor Z.

The purpose of this testimonial is to speak to the superb competency, professional knowledge, and kind courtesy of Mr. James Forehand, who we credit for helping us locate and purchase our lots at Centennial Ridge, Texas.

Our land purchase story has a military flavor. Originally from New York, Ginger and I both served and then retired from the United States Air Force, choosing to settle in San Antonio (got here as fast as we could) after more than 20 moves and multiple assignments. Our goal was simple – focus on family, raise our children. Mission completed. Our #1 (Audra) and #2 (Arianna) are both cadets at the United States Air Force Academy, Astronautical Engineering majors and aspiring pilots. What’s next? We always loved the Texas Hill Country, so we began looking around with the intent of settling further outside of town. After 2 years of searching, we had no success until we bumped into your representative, Mr. James Forehand and Centennial Ridge.

Our search for land was simple – location, confidence in the engineering development and purchase process, and cost that met our budget. Seeing your advertisement billboard, we made the call. James spoke with us and made us feel welcome to come out after a previous engagement. Despite the late hour, James met with us to understand our goals, explain the development process of Centennial Ridge and Southerland Communities, and offered to take us to lots that he thought might meet our goals. James was easy to work with – his customer focus, responsiveness, and knowledge helped make our decision along with our own research. As the customer, we appreciated James’ professional knowledge of land development. His responses to our questions were patient, informative, and prompt (took a note to get back with us on an answer). We have never bought a piece of land before, definitely outside of our wheelhouse, so lots of questions. James demonstrated that formula for success that made u7s feel informed. James is a great listener, and quickly identified our needs. We identified Lot #18 and had an agreement with James and Mr. Steve Brents in less than 24 hours. Progress! James was a steady force and mentor for us throughout the loan process purchase – more progress.

We define ourselves as super satisfied Centennial Ridge customers! As we look to the future, we continue to reach out to James for answers to our questions and the status of the properties development and James always responds – willing to find the answer for us! James continue to be a resource that we feel confident to check with and get the answers to our questions.

Our comfort with our land purchase has continued and having James in the background made us feel comfortable to purchase another property – Lot #19. With James’ guidance and assistance, again – we made progress. We are looking forward to the clearing process and breaking ground to start our new home at Centennial Ridge. We credit James immensely for his knowledge and guidance through the entire process. Mr. Brents was also a huge supporter. We are moving ahead with our family goals and credit James with a major part of it.

Belle Oaks

Tony and I have recently become owners of property in the Belle Oaks community in Bulverde, Texas. We became aware of the community upon an impromptu visit in March 2021 when we were visiting San Antonio. By happenstance, we were introduced to Mr. Curtis Philby when we dropped in unannounced for information on any available properties during that trip. Curtis made time out of his busy schedule to show us around the property, expertly explaining the details of the Belle Oaks developments and the successful history of the company’s property development projects. Curtis took us to the properties we were interested in exploring, which we lated ended up purchasing (3 lots). He answered all our questions in regard to the local area and about the ins and outs of living in Texas, especially the San Antonio area. Mr. Philby is a truly genuine person and professional representative for Belle Oaks. Curtis has become family to Tony and me and we look forward to our future visits with Curtis as we build our new home.
Tony and Kristine K. [from California]

We came to San Antonio for our anniversary, to look at model homes for building our home in the next 18 to 24 months, and also to look at land if we could find it. We went to Belle Oaks on Thursday and were leaving town on Saturday. We met Curtis Philby. He was awesome and asked details about our "wish list" for the piece of land. To our surprise, he knew the exact lot for us. Curtis warned us that it would not be there if we did not get it ASAP and he was right because we called him and beat another person wanting it, who called 5 minute after us. We purchase our property the day after viewing it. That weekend they sold 22 lots. We had also explained to Curtis that our original plan was to establish a builder for our dream home and we really desired a complete custom builder because of our personal taste was a mixture of multiple model homes. He introduced us to Michael Bryant with Genuine Custom Homes who does not have model homes, but was there the day we purchased our lot which was a blessing. Having an architecture degree, this meant the world to me. Basically, my wife and I found a one stop shop as a result. That was in November and Curtis and I talk almost everyday since that day.
Brian H.

This letter expresses our appreciation and gratitude for the overwhelming dedication to our family's desire to be a part of the Belle Oaks Community. From day one, you have shown us the commitment and hard work of making our dream of having land to build on for our family. We loved how you expressed your dedication for our family to find the perfect spot to call home, driving us to different lots and showing us the work in progress to get it started. As time went on, the first spot did not work out for us at the time. But you never gave up on us, you kept in touch with us and found another site that you knew we would love. When you invited us out to see it, we instantly fell in love, and to see the excitement in you was the same we had was heartwarming. Thank you for everything that you have done for us and for helping us along the way. We can not wait to celebrate on the 2 lots that we purchased for our family to create memories on when everything is completed. We now consider you a part of our story as we have now renamed you; since your name is Will, to us, you will always be known as "God's Will!" because where there is a Will, there is a way. We can honestly say that we highly recommend you Will to anyone if they are looking for a place to call home, not only will you find the perfect site, we know you will have them feel right at home as you did for us. You have been a God send to us, which is such a blessing. Thank you for this positive experience and for being such a pleasant professional person to work with. We appreciate you and the Belle Oaks family for welcoming us to the community and can not wait to be there.

Mr. Nesbitt was more than helpful with finding me the perfect lot in Belle Oaks. He was extremely honest, upfront, and very knowledgeable. He was communicative and accessible to answer any of my questions at all times. Mr. Nesbitt made the nightmare finding the perfect lot to build my awesome custom home a breeze!
Kimberly W.

We had a great experience with this company, specifically David McCumber and Randy Shirley. David was professional and courteous and took the time to show us several properties. He listened to what we were looking for and was patient with us until we found the perfect lot. We are extremely happy with the Belle Oaks team. They have clearly communicated with us from start to finish, offered to help/guide us through the process to meet clear expectations and goals. Randy is always there and addresses our inquiries or concerns within 24 hours. They have treated us fairly and like family. Very impressive team. Thanks for your service and patience to first-time builders.
Alison G.

Joe was amazing to work with. I 110% recommend reaching out to him if you are looking at purchasing a lot (or two) in Belle Oaks. I have VERY high expectations and Joe exceeded my expectations. Skip the hassle of some of the other reps and ask for Joe. Tell him you I sent you. This neighborhood is gorgeous, don't miss out or pay more later!!! We purchased an amazing lot in April, we are so excited to build and can't wait!! My only regret is not buying two lots!! I love the gorgeous heavily wooded lots, curving streets, the planned amenities, the restrictions aren't too crazy, and everyone I have met so far has been great!
Angela W.

My wife and I made the decision to relocate to the San Antonio, Hill Country area after I retire from my second career. We currently live in another state, so we flew into San Antonio, met with our realtor (Regi) from RSP KW Realty. We told him the type of lot and property that we were looking for, and the very first place he drove us to on a Sunday morning was Belle Oaks. We looked at a couple of more communities the rest of Sunday and Monday, but by Tuesday we were back at Belle Oaks and met with Mary Beth, a Belle Oaks Land Consultant (BTW, she is FANTASTIC). She took us to two perfect lots, and either one would have been the ideal spot to build our dream home On Wednesday, we met Regi and Mary Beth in the office again and we were looking at the map of the plats. There was a lot open on a cul-de-sac at the very back of Belle Oaks. One of our main requirements was that our lot had to face west, which means the huge backyard will be shaded in the afternoon. The other two lots we looked at in Belle Oaks also met this requirement. So, the four of us got into Mary Beth's SUV and drove to out look at the lot. Once again, a PERFECT lot! We made our final decision right then and there: we had to claim it before the Texas Landgrabber got it! Mary Beth, thank you so much for working with us. We can't wait put our custom-built home in the middle of those large, beautiful oak trees.
Dwight R.

Mr. Shirley: My wife and I have been involved in several real estate purchases. The team you have trained and supervise are all by far the most knowledgeable and kindest professionals we have had the pleasure to do business with. Joe is and will be my constant “guy” to refer my friends and family. He has shown true honesty and sincerely cares. We know we can trust in his response to anything we ask of him. Rarity in many professions. Thank you for putting forth the effort to ensure such high quality people.

Mark L.

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!

Gary and Jill B.

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!
