Testimonials

At Nelson Builders, our top priority in every build is you, our customer. We know that you have let us into your lives to share a very personal experience, creating a home for you and your family. We realize that trust is the foundation of any strong relationship and will work daily to uphold that value. At the end of the day, more customers choose Nelson Builders based on a referral than by any other method.

Prior to choosing Nelson Builders, we walked through countless new construction homes. After seeing a Nelson Home, it was clear that the quality and attention to detail was next level. It was great working with Matt and Scott throughout the building process. They were easy to get in touch with and quick to respond to any questions that came up. The project management tool that they use provided transparency, made the selection process easy, and aided in communication throughout the entirety of the build. We would certainly recommend Nelson Builders, and would be happy to work with them again in the future.

Last spring we made a joint decision to build our first home. We searched reviews and spoke with couples who have taken on the same adventure we were about to be a part of. We were slightly discouraged reading other builders reviews and hearing horror stories from friends of ours who had decided to build their homes as well. During our search we came across Nelson Builders. We were immediately impressed with their website and spec homes that we viewed. We also found multiple friends of ours who live in Nelson Builder specs homes and are happy with their experience. We dug deeper into online reviews of this company and found nothing but positive comments. This was not the case for multiple other builders we researched in the area. We set up an appointment to meet with Matt Nelson and were immediately impressed with his attention to detail and the passion he showed about helping us develop plans for our dream home. After we put our deposit down and the building process began, we feared we would quickly feel overwhelmed with all of the decisions that needed to be made. Nelson Builders uses an application that you can access on your phone or desktop which keeps you up to date on the building process, allows you to make selections, and communicate with the owners seamlessly. This communication tool was a huge positive attribute for us because we were not living in the town our house was being built in so we could not visit the job site as often as we would have liked. However, we were able to get updates and see pictures and videos of our home during all stages of the building process through the website. We write this review to give our honest opinion about our experience so that other individuals can make a well informed decision for such a huge investment. As mentioned previously, we were mentally prepared for catastrophes to occur during the process, but we did not experience any. During the building process, Matt met with us regularly to make sure that we were happy with everything and made adjustments accordingly. For example, halfway through the build, we decided we wanted to change flooring of the entire first floor. Matt made sure that the material was delivered immediately so that the floor had the appropriate time to acclimate before being completed and still kept us on track with our move in date. There are many other examples that we could give about the time and effort that Nelson Builders put into our home. If you want to have a high quality home built in a timely manner by an enthusiastic team, then we strongly suggest you choose Nelson Builders.

Nelson Builders was wonderful to work with on our remodel. Matt kept in constant communication with us, kept to a tight timeline, and paid attention to all the small details. His subcontractors were all fantastic and were very considerate of my family as we lived through the remodel. I highly recommend Nelson Builders to anyone looking to build or remodel.

From start to finish Nelson Builders provides a home building experience with honesty, integrity, and professionalism. They took our house plan and worked with us to make design changes that improved the functionality and aesthetics of our home. This was done in a very prompt manner. Construction began by siting the home on our lot to maximize its street view as well as interior views to the outside. We were engaged throughout the building process by regular communication with Matt and the Buildertrend software utilized by Nelsons. It was such a pleasure working with Matt. He always wanted us to be happy with the finished product and he worked diligently to make that happen. The smallest of details were never overlooked. We appreciated the tradesmen Nelson Builders employs. The quality of their work and attention to detail are outstanding. Being on the job site with them, it was obvious they take pride in their work. Nelsons completed our beautiful home on time and within budget. We couldn't be happier and highly recommend Nelson Builders.

Working with Nelson Builders was a wonderful experience. We went in to the project figuring to expect a few hiccups, just based on experiences friends and acquaintances had had when building their own homes (using different builders). Thankfully, we did not experience any of that with Nelson Builders. Matt was attentive, on the job almost every day, and up front and direct about the process from start to finish. The working relationship was a breeze, as Matt respected what we, the homeowners, wanted out of the house while also being diligent in regards to bringing up any considerations we might want to be aware of before making any major decisions. It was a pleasure to work with builders who wanted to explore creative solutions rather than just settling for the same formula they've seen before. Nelson Builders takes pride in the work they do and the service they give so you can be certain the details are always accounted for the and the workmanship is of the highest quality. We cannot imagine a better experience and are so grateful that we chose Nelson Builders to help us build a home for our family to call our forever home.

We hired Nelson Builders to fix our entryway that our original home builder had built incorrectly. During the rehab project Matt Nelson personally assisted with the project. His knowledge and skill for understanding framing, electrical, finishing, and attention to detail impressed my husband and I. It is rare to find a builder who truly knows how to build quality, well-designed homes. I cannot speak highly enough about our positive experience. I only wish we would have found him sooner, we would have loved for him to have designed and built our entire home. Nelson Builders are different than any other builder because they don't skip on quality and there truly is such close attention to detail. They were able fix and transform our home into what we always wanted. We are so thankful for Matt's help in fixing our entryway! I've included a Before & After picture so you can see the great work by Nelson Builders.

We would highly recommend Nelson Builders for your future home. We worked with Matt Nelson from the design stage through completion of our home. From the first day we met Matt he helped us take the Sycamore plan and make changes to fit our needs. He was attentive to our wants and needs and always gave us options to move forward with the revised plans. Once the building process started Matt meet with us weekly to ensure all aspects of the process were going as planned and was there to answer any questions or concerns we had. The subcontractors were great, very particular, and we always felt like they were treating our house as it was their very own. With the completed home, Matt delivered to us an Energy Star Certified highly rate HERS home. The one on one service and attention to detail was terrific. The end product is even better than we could have imagined. Thank you Matt for helping take our dream and make it a reality!
