“Hunter Creek Homes built our home in 2011. It is a lovely house and we were quite impressed that all the wood was cut on site. No pre made trusses here !!! We got the extra insulation package which was well worth the money, especially with the cold weather we are having now. Quality products were used and if we had to build again, it would be Hunter Creek Homes. There are a few things we would have done different but that is not due to Hunter Creek but just our preference after living in the house.”

“The quality craftsmanship and personalized service we received at Hunter Creek Homes is like no other! From start to finish John and Joan at Hunter Creek Homes made us feel like we were family. I could not believe how easy and fun they made the home building process. They took so much time and effort to make sure the quality of our home was meant and that we were happy. I have had nothing but good things to say about Hunter Creek Homes and recommend them to everyone who is in the market for a new home!”

Paula S.

Working alongside Hunter Creek Homes to build our dream home was a wonderful process. They abundantly bent over backwards to accommodate any of our requests and listened to our ideas. They knowledgably guided us through every step, from obtaining the land – to creating the house plan – to suggesting ideas to enhance the design of the home. They even gave us tips on ways to save money on details of the home that we would have never thought of ourselves. It was clear that their honesty and expertise could only be learned through years and years of experience in successfully building quality homes. Together we came up with a grandiose, custom house plan that is truly spectacular and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the finished product!

“When we started looking at building our custom home we went through a number of builders before we found John and Joan of Hunter Creek Homes. We immediately fell in love with the level of professionalism they brought to the table while not losing the small town charm that the big box companies lack.

They worked closely with us to create a custom home plan that fit both our budget and the needs of our growing family. The hands on approach they take continued from the beginning until the end. We were involved throughout the entire process. I remember telling my wife as we were moving in that I am going to miss working with John and Joan as they truly made the home building process an enjoyable and exciting time.

Without hesitation, I would recommend Hunter Creek Homes to anyone interested in building a home.”

Lisa Peracchio

My husband and I could not be more happy with the experience we had with Hunter Creek Homes. Lance was a pleasure to work
with and it’s quite obvious that quality is their top concern. Lance was more than accommodating when we wanted to make changes throughout the process; he never once made us feel like we were bothering him and he truly just wanted us to be happy with the end result. His hard work paid off and we could not be happier with our beautiful new home. We get so many compliments on our house
and we can’t wait to spend forever in this home.
