Back in the fall of 2005, we entered into a contract with Solomon Homes to build us our dream home. It became evident to us very quickly that this was more than a contract, it was a business relationship that was very rewarding. Solomon Homes proved to us over our time working together that they are second to none and truly treat the customer the way a client should be treated. No question was too small, no idea was overlooked. Their insight and ideas made our home the dream we had hoped for. The subcontractor group that Ben uses were friendly, knowledgeable, timely and very professional.
If building a house is something we again elect to do, we will make only one call, to Solomon Homes.

We were moving to Grand Rapids from Los Angeles and needed to find a home in a very short time frame. We were expecting our first baby and had dreams of finding the perfect place to raise our family... but endless searches on the GRAR left us feeling we'd never find what we wanted, and we didn't have time to build. Then one day, I saw a rendering of a spec home by Solomon Homes on-line. From the description alone, I was sure it was where we belonged. I flew into town, took one look at the beautiful craftsmanship details of the unfinished home, and told Ben we wanted it. And surprise, we needed to move in one month!
We spent a few hours with them making some decisions about flooring and countertops, and left all the other design decisions in Jaren's capable hands. They may have been a little nervous that we didn't even want to choose the paint colors or the carpet, but they never let it show. We were certain that if we let them carry out their vision for the house, it would be perfect. The crew worked like magicians over the next month, and when I stepped into the house for the first time, it made me cry. Every detail of the house was lovingly chosen, from the front door to the bathroom fixtures.
This is more than a house to us. It's where we brought our girls home from the hospital, and where we tuck them in every night. It's where we've forged friendships with neighbors that will last a lifetime. We love our Solomon Home!

We found the opportunity of building a home with Solomon Homes to be a warm and inviting experience. All the people, from the framers to the painters were all friendly and easy to work with. After building our prior home with a different builder, this experience was like working with your best friend! A truly customer driven focus. Jaren's time was invaluable and marriage saving when it came to pick interior designs, including, but not limited to, colors, carpet, tile, etc...
The overall experience had me walking away, feeling like I got more bang for the buck! Our next custom home, will be a Solomon Home.

Sue and I would like to thank you for all of the hard work your team did on our new home in Hamilton Woods. Personally, I would like to thank you for your professionalism and honesty during the entire building process. As you know we were not looking forward to building a house and all of the details associated with it. After occupying this house for a year, we continue to be impressed with the workmanship performed, from the framing an drywall to the finish carpentry.
We have also been very happy with your consisten follow through on all of our questions and concerns after we moved into the home. Not only will we be referring you to our friends, but also plan to use you when building our next home!

Building my home with Solomon Homes was an enjoyable experience. They are people of integrity, which was the key aspect in making the process very enjoyable. Always very patient in explaining to me all the ins and outs of the construction process. He was consistently kind, patient and knowledgeable. They were eager to listen and understand my ideas, concerns, and plans for my home. He often stepped in and took care of things in a way that caused me to have confidence in him and allowed me to relax and enjoy the process. If Solomon Homes said something was going to be done, it was done, and done right.
I'm grateful to Solomon Homes and their team for the wonderful home they built for me.

I worked in the building industry for several years so I was quite familiar with the home building process. After interviewing several builders, we chose Solomon Homes. Every other builder met with us and gave us a quote. They did the same, but on top of that really made us feel like he wanted to build our home. From start to finish, our experience was excellent.
We visited our home daily while it was being constructed. Each and every one of the contractors made a point to acknowledge us, introduce themselves, and explain what they were doing. They had the utmost respect for S.H. and spoke very highly of the company.
Where Solomon Homes really stood out was the finishing touches... the trim work and painting. The attention to detail was impeccable on these items and it shows. We have received many compliments on our home. Also, their allowances were very generous, allowing us to pick out top quality lighting, faucets, towel bars, etc.
To sum it up... it would have been a shame had we not chosen Solomon Homes to build our home.
