3 (Surprising) Reasons to Choose Us as Your Custom Home Builder

Posted on June 27, 2018 by Kevin Estes

Why should you choose Estes Builders to build your dream home?

We could tell you about our quality or value or integrity and all of the things that every other custom home builder will tell you (and we can all agree that those are very important qualities in a custom home builder).

But here’s the thing. It really comes down to whether or not we are the type of people you want to do business with (and vice versa). The design build process can take up to a year (or even longer) so we get to know each other pretty well. A good working relationship is as important to us as it is to you.

So here are a few things to know about us.

We’re Very Practical.

When you tell us you want laminate floors we won’t try to upsell you to Brazilian cherry as the latest “must have” design feature. We build high quality homes that include a generous list of included features and plenty of flexibility for upgraded design elements. We’re kind of like the Volvo of custom home builders. Solid, practical, luxury.  

We Hate Surprises, Too.

Oh sure, there are some surprises that are fun. Like winning the lottery or a birthday party. But unpleasant surprises like unexpected costs, delays, and hassle are no fun at all. We hate them as much as you do. That’s why we developed an award-winning system (really, we’ve actually won awards for it) that takes all of the surprise out of the process of designing and building your home. We even guarantee that your home will be completed for the price we give you.

We’re Nice People.

Yes, we know it sounds a bit sappy, but we think that being nice is a winning business strategy. To be the kind of team that you actually enjoy working with as you design and build your dream home. So, we do our best to treat our customers like family. (But don’t take our word for it. See what our customers have to say about working with us.)

If that sounds like the kind of builder you’d like to work with to design and build your dream home in Western Washington, then we invite you to contact us to schedule a free Project Analysis. The Project Analysis is your chance to tell us a bit about your dream home, and to get to know us, as well as our chance to get to know you. Together we can talk about your project and if we think it would be a successful working relationship. We’ll even provide you with a ballpark estimate on what you’ll need to budget based on the type of home you tell us you want to build.

If we’re not the right fit, we’ll let you know what your options are (and perhaps even point you in the direction of someone who is).

We can schedule your Project Analysis in person at our office or by video if you live out of the area.
