Thanks for all the excellent work you have done for Millenia Homes.  In addition to being very accurate in your estimating you are totally honest, easy to work with, and you get the job done in an amazingly short time.  Actual costs have never come in above your estimate on a Millenia Home & the savings drops straight to the bottom line. In short, you are the best estimator I’ve encountered in my 50 year home building career.  Thanks for going above and beyond my expectations, which were very high after being introduced to you and hearing recommendations from others.  A home builder would be fortunate to have you as an estimator and/or doing purchasing for that home builder.

Steve Goodman - President, Millenia Homes



We have used DFW Custom Estimating services for years and have found it very useful in many ways.

Not only do we get a material list to bid out lumber apples to apples, but we get the framing plans, and take offs for flooring, counters, tile, and other areas of each house.  Our framers, tile and flooring guys, counter top guys all find the dimensioned drawings helpful.


We also use the framing plans and lumber take offs to discuss with our framer and lumber supplier to review each house before we start construction to flush out any issues that may arise with beams, stairs, etc., so we can address before we start.


We would recommend this service to any builder who would like to take their planning to the next level.

Mark Alexander - Owner, Alexander Hunt Distinct Homes



We have used DFW Custom Estimating for over 2 years and the service is a great benefit to our company and our product. We have particularly liked the takeoff service that we can give directly to lumberyards for competitive bidding. When Aaron marks up our plans, it makes it easier for our project managers and framers to complete their jobs more efficiently.  The service is on par with the cost as well as the turn times.  We recommend DFW Custom Estimating for any Custom builder in the area.

I worked for numerous local, regional and national home builders before starting my own company.  I can tell you Aaron Barney is the most thorough and accurate estimator I have ever worked with and his feedback regarding potential trouble spots is invaluable.


Mike Blake - President, Mike Blake Custom Homes



We want to thank you for the services you have provided MainVue Homes.  Your material takeoffs and field verifications of material useage have been invaluable.  All of our expectations have been met or exceeded.


We hired DFW Custom Estimating back in July of 2015 to assist with our estimating and material takeoff needs for our plans.  We went from 8 plans to 32 plans overnight and we needed assistance.  Aaron jumped in and helped us complete our material takeoffs in a clear and precise manner.  I would and I already have recommended Aaron Barney to other companies and associates.  We look forward to our continued successful relationship as we both grow in the home building industry.

Aaron’s key strengths include highly developed analytical and problem solving skills. He improved gross margins by over 2%. His value engineering recommendations further enhanced profitability. When developing new product, he successfully balanced cost effectiveness with aesthetic appeal. He is very dedicated and of the highest integrity. Aaron works as long as it takes to get the job done and displays a team spirit, maturity, and scrupulous honesty so necessary in complex operations. He interacts effectively with customers, subcontractors, vendors, and all levels of the organization. I have the highest personal and professional regard for Aaron. He is a unique blend of natural ability, intelligence, directness, common sense, and sincerity.
