Testimonials

This was a very thorough and easy process to go through. Each person that we worked with was very understanding and considerate of us as customers. They all worked with us as if they were building their own home. (Our project manager) was a great project manager to work with and answered many questions and took the time to explain many details about the build. (Our design consultant) was also great to work with in the design aspect of the interior of the house. She made things easy for my wife and I. Overall, we cannot express how happy we are to have built with Ellis Custom Homes.

Jim and Angie Grombacher

We want to give a great big THANK YOU to all of the people at Ellis Custom Homes. We have built 3 custom homes, and building with you was by far the easiest, most straight forward and honest process that we have experienced... The contractors were all very good, and were honest, decent guys. There weren't any "surprise" expenses at the end of the build, like we had with the other builders. All in all, it is a year after we moved in, and everything we wanted and expected of a custom builder were well exceeded!

Ernie & Julie Tickler

The house is awesome. We love everything. You and your crew knocked it out of the park. Thanks for making our vision a reality.

Doug Barry

"We've been in our new home for about 5 months. We asked ourselves, "What would we change if we were doing this again?" ... we couldn't come up with anything substantial. That's a testament to the diligence and creativity that comes in building a new home with the Ellis team. We started with our "idea" and worked with the team to transform that into a home that we couldn't be more happy with. The experience was enjoyable, the people were terrific, and the quality of work and craftsmanship is second to none. It truly is our dream home and more! Thank you Ellis! "

Doug and Betse O'Keefe

We are very happy with our new home. The process from start to finish was enjoyable. The Ellis staff was incredible. Ellis did a great job providing us a wonderful home within our budget and exceeded our expectations. Thanks!

Donavin and Gina Baumgartner

We are so pleased with our home, and we would choose Ellis again to build a home for us without a moment's hesitation. We can definitely tell our home was built with quality materials and craftsmanship that will keep it in good condition for years to come. I have been in homes built by production builders that are only a few years old, but look like they are 10 - 15 years old. Our home still looks like it did the day we moved in. We met with several home builders before choosing Ellis, and by far, Ellis had the best process and team of people out of any of those we visited.

We want to take a moment to let you know how pleased we are with our home, and how thankful we are that we chose Ellis Custom Homes as our builder. You and your team have done an amazing job building the home of our dreams! We can't believe that it's really ours!

Our Ellis Custom Homes project manager was fantastic. He solved every problem that came up during construction. We feel he went far beyond his job requirements to keep us happy. It's obvious he takes a lot of pride in his work.

The quality of craftsmanship is superior! We loved being able to design the home we've been dreaming about for years. We are so pleased with our beautiful, energy-efficient home.

Jim and Jan Pettry

Nothing but good things to say about the quality and the entire process. Building this house was easier than selling our other one. Who would have guessed that??

Jeff and Kari Schemenauer

We just wanted to thank you for running such an excellent company with excellent employees. With all the stories you hear about home builders, contractors and subcontractors, it's nice to know there is such a great company out there you can trust to build your home.

Jeff & Stacy Larmore

I appraised one of your higher-end homes a month or so ago. I asked the homeowner what the experience was like, and he said, "It was awesome". I also spoke to a local Realtor, about a different matter altogether, and she was singing Ellis' praises. She said that you guys are amazingly well-organized and customer-focused, and liked the way that your computer program makes instant changes based on what the client wants. All good stuff. Typically when I talk to people about their experience of building a custom home, they say it was miserable or "its the only time we've ever talked about a divorce" (seriously).

Jeff

Thank you for taking time to meet with me yesterday. It’s obvious you and the Ellis team have a wonderful approach to detail, quality, customer service and satisfaction when it comes to custom home design and construction.
