Shaw Homes "Take a Tour" - New Homes Tulsa

I recently had a funny experience when I met a home shopper that happened upon Shaw Homes by mistake.

When he walked in, he looked a little confused, and said he was looking for "Builder X". My response was "You can't be looking for Builder X, you must be looking for Shaw Homes, because you're here."

He laughed and said "no, I've already bought a home, I'm just finalizing stuff so I came to get it taken care of." When I asked if he had already signed a contract, he said no but that he was close.

Over the next 30 minutes, one of our Community Managers and I chatted with him and asked about the next home he wants, how much he wants to spend, and what he wants in the home. It quickly became apparent that we could build him a home that was larger, had more features, and would cost him less than he was just about to spend.

Four days after our first meeting, our new customer was in the model home signing a contract with a huge grin on his face. We couldn't ask for a happier customer.

If you are a buyer looking for a home, or a Realtor helping a buyer, the focus of the builder being considered must always be on what the home buyer wants and needs. When shopping, it's important to keep your eyes on the ball, and not be distracted by flash. "We include..." is a part of the sales process. Isn't it better to hear the Manager ask "What are you looking for? What do you want?" After all, it's going to be your home.

Shaw Homes is doing something completely unique in the Tulsa area, called "The Mocha Tour". We offer you an experience without a "sales process". Call us and set a time to join us on a Mocha Tour. We start off with fresh Starbucks coffees in hand, then tour about a dozen homes. Some will be Market Ready Homes, and others will be fully decorated and furnished model homes. Bring a pad to write down all the details you like and you want as you view each home. Our customers love the experience and the variety of homes they get to see.

You get to drive by yourselves so you can talk privately between each home to share your thoughts and opinions.

Call (918)409-5195, 7 days a week, between 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM to get in on a Tour, or e-mail

Shaw Homes "Lowest Mortgage Rate Ever Recorded" - New Homes Tulsa

February started off with a bang as the national mortgage rate dropped to the lowest point since records have been kept, hitting 3.87% on a 30 year fixed mortgage. To make now an ever better time to build a home, Shaw Homes is turning up the heat with a Red Hot Winter Incentive.

No snow on the ground is making it easy for those who are out shopping for the perfect homesite. Shaw Homes makes it easier than ever by having the largest selection of fully furnished and decorated model homes to choose from. If you are like most people, seeing a home for yourself is the key to finding what you want. Call us now to book a tour and have some fun looking.

Home shopping tip: Sit down and make a list of everything you love about your current home or apartment, and everything you want that you don't have now. Think about the function of each room you use, and how it fits or doesn't fit what you need. Keep this list with you when you come to see us, and share it. A home builder is very much like a chef. The more we know about your tastes, the easier it is to build the home that fits yours.

Shaw Homes "Personalize Your Plan on" - New Homes Tulsa

If you look up "Home" in the Webster dictionary, you will see the phrase "Home is where the heart is". For 27 years Shaw Homes has excelled at keeping our homes personal.

When we sat down to decide what our new website was going to look like, we focused on you, our future buyers. What do you want to see, and how do you want to be able to use our website? What we heard back when we asked was "Interactive". Have you gotten Interactive on yet? It's easy as 1-2-3:

1. Click here to go to and click on "Design Your Home".
2. Under "Interactive Floorplans", click on a home you would like to personalize.
3. Click on "View Floorplan" and make your selections. There are three possible areas you can personalize: "Select An Elevation", "Select A Floor", and "Plan Your Space". "Select A Floor" allows you to make structural and floor plan changes that occur as soon as you click. "Plan Your Space" amazingly lets you put furniture in the home and re-size it to fit your current furniture!

Once you personalize your Shaw Home, you are able to print, save, and share your plan. Once saved, you can access it again at a later date and continue to make changes.

Have fun creating the home that functions the way you want it to!

If you needs tips on using the site, or have any questions, call our on-line concierge at (918)409-5195, or send us an e-mail to
