Dream Client + Dream Builder = Dream Home

August 16, 2008



THE MONUMENTAL TASK OF BUILDING A CUSTOM HOME…You’re trying to decide on who will build your home.  You know you want someone reputable, who builds quality, is respectful to your budget and time frame and most importantly someone you can trust.  But during that process you might overlook that the builder also needs to trust the client, feel secure that the client is going to work with them in regards to time and budget.  They also want to make sure they are paid promptly and changes are discussed appropriately so they don’t negatively influence the project.  Below are some tips to help put together the DREAM TEAM: 



·         Suited for the service, style and caliber of home being offered, designed and built

·         Willing to pay the cost and has a realistic budget

·         Reasonable with their time frame

·         Able to see the value in the services provided

·         Respectful to the  professional opinions and advise given

·         Open minded to the design and building process

·         Loyal to the project

·         Someone who is a joy to work with

·         Similar in characteristics to past dream clients



·         A benefit to your project    

·         Able to listen and communicate with you in a manner that you’re comfortable with

·         Respectful to your opinions and goals for the project

·         Able to build within your budget

·         Resourceful and can create what you want

·         An expert who can build you a quality custom home

·         Encouraging and supportive

·         Someone you would enjoy working with

·         Similar in characteristics to a past person you felt comfortable doing business with


A collaboration of decisions made and built on a strong foundation of trust and integrity.  A personal space that reflects your physical, emotional and spiritual self and meets all of your needs.   An established relationship between you and your builder that will continue long after the home is complete.   A place you call home.
