Who We Are(& Are Not)
We Are Housemakers
We build handsome ready-made homes in lovable South Austin neighborhoods. Moore-Tate is known for distinctive and timeless design, admired for lasting quality in construction, and a durable reputation for quality built over 11 years and more than 110 homes.
Our team. The backbones of construction are our skilled crafts and trades who build together and stay together. We are local--from banking and title work to legal and accounting, building supplies to cabinetry, and our commitment to philanthropy, we keep things close to home. Moore-Tate is owned and operated by women.
Repeat customers. About ten percent of our 100-plus homeowners are repeat buyers who chose a Moore-Tate home again. We can put you in touch with them to get the skinny on that since they tell our story better than we can tell it.
We build where we live. It’s a short commute. We live just down the street. Our home buyers are also neighbors.
A good name. Reputation takes much longer to build than a house or two. After 11 years and 100-plus homes, we have earned the confidence of our homeowners who kindly send their friends and neighbors our way.
We Are Not.
Not mean. And, we do not do business with or vote for mean people. Ever. Period.
Not north. Look for Moore-Tate only in Austin and south of Lady Bird Lake. (We like the peeps up north just fine…they’re just not in our ‘hood).
Not architects or builders for private clients looking to build custom homes.
