Class and quality is what you can expect if you decide to work with Lakemist. Choosing them for our custom home was the best decision we made. Beginning to end and now over a year after we’ve moved in they have been the same consistent, caring, responsive and dedicated team you can imagine. As a real estate professional I can tell you they operate with integrity and as a homeowner they truly care and treat you like family!

The Maher Family

The Lakemist team raises the bar for home builders. We love the home that they built for us and could not be happier with the building process. They excel in communication to make a house they are building the home that you are dreaming about.

The Bourgeois Family

When we decided to build our home, we were warned by some it would be difficult and stressful.  It was neither.  Working with Lakemist was a pleasure.  They definitely take pride in the homes they build.  Our home is everything we hoped it would be and more.

The Kraus Family

We would highly recommend this builder to our friends and relatives. Support after the sale is key and we could not be more pleased with the quality of home built. VERY satisfied with this Builder.

The McCarter Family

Lakemist Homes not only sold us a house, they sold us a home. When we wanted to change a room to make a larger space for my husband’s art studio, they accomplished the remodel quickly. We are incredibly happy with our home and our experience with Lakemist Homes.

The Cox Family

…being a part of every decision along the way – really makes this house feel like OUR HOME.

The Hern Family

Our experience with Lakemist Homes was nothing short of exceptional. One of the most enjoyable aspects of our build that impressed us the most is the care and pride that Jim and Barbara took in the construction of our home. They did not build just another house; they built our home as though they would be living in it with their own family. There was no detail too small for them and no request that was too big; everything they did for us reflects the highest quality workmanship and their service levels were second to none as they accommodated every request we made without exception. And, in the end, we became part of a great community!

The Larson Family

When friends hear we’ve built our own home, they groan and ask us how we survived.  When we tell them about our great experience from Day 1 to present day – AFTER we’ve closed – they simply can’t believe it.  And frankly, neither can we.  Never in a million years did I think I’d feel compelled to write a note like this after our home was completed, and the fact that I am really says something.
