Main Street Homes
Home Builders in Chelsea, MI
"Joe and his team at Main Street Homes built our custom home in Ann Arbor. After hearing numerous stories from others who have built custom homes, I'm confident that Main Street Homes is the best builder in Ann Arbor and likely one of the top custom home builders in the country. The entire process couldn't have gone smoother. They truly care about their clients' happiness and will work with you every step of the way. Andreas, the site supervisor, has such high standards that I never once worried about the quality of work being done. I am so grateful that our Realtor recommended Joe and his team at Main Street Homes. We have been in our home for six months now and couldn't be happier."

Alimoff Building & Development
Home Builders in Chelsea, MI
"Alimoff Building & Development did an exceptional job on my new home. Brian, the builder, worked with me from the beginning and guided me through the process of selecting different options for my home. He first provided guidance on different tile, hardwood and carpet options and helped me find the right light fixtures, kitchen and bathroom cabinets and handles. With each of those selections he made me familiar with the options and helped me keep track of spending to make sure that I do not go over budget. I really appreciate him providing opinion when he considered necessary, yet not being too assertive about it and allowing me to make decision on my own. He pays attention to detail and the quality of work is excellent. He did all the hard work and now I just get to enjoy my newly build home. Anyone working with him is in good hands and I am already recommending his work to my friends."
