Braga Homes

"Braga Homes built my home 5 years ago and I absolutely love it. I was a first time home buyer and he was very patient with me and knew exactly what I wanted. He does a lot of custom work, so I feel like my house doesn't look like everyone elses and I have a lot of fun built-ins throughout my house. We absolutely love our home and when we build again we will build with Braga!"

Integrity Construction
Home Builders in Melbourne, IA
"Integrity worked with us to renovate our farmhouse built in 1900. There were many hurdles to overcome in renovating such an old home but they helped us work through each one. They communicated well with us and worked hard to allow us to have as much (or little) input as we wanted. They managed the overall project and paid attention to all the little details. We are very happy with the finished product and they have stood behind their work. We would highly recommend Integrity as a contractor for a renovation or new construction."
- Tamra Call
Capital Homes
Home Builders in Melbourne, IA
"We had a front porch added to our house and their attention to detail is outstanding. We had to deal with weather which caused a few delays and we had to deal with some re-do's but Capital Homes was quick to respond and get the job done right - and under budget. I would recommend (have recommended) them to anyone looking to do an addition or full build out."

KRM Development, LLC
Home Builders in Melbourne, IA
"KRM Development came highly recommended from our architect. We were impressed from the very beginning when we met with the owner Kirk Michelson. He took the time to listen to what was important to us and was very knowledgeable about what materials to use, the costs, and the expert sub-contractors to get the job done right. Everyone we worked with from KRM Development, including their sub-contractors and suppliers were people of integrity. We were so pleased with the excellent craftsmanship that was put into every detail. Brandon, our foreman led the project with a high level of knowledge, experience and professionalism and he demanded perfection in the quality of work that was done. They all went above and beyond to create a beautiful home from top to bottom. We relied heavily on our project manager Audrey who was a pleasure to work with in finalizing all the design details of our home. She led us through the process with ease and made an overwhelming task manageable and enjoyable. Her knowledge and commitment to customer satisfaction was truly commendable. Our kitchen designer, Jenni did a wonderful job working with us to create a layout that was not only functional but very beautiful. Our overall experience with KRM Development was outstanding. It was an honor to work with such and outstanding group of people who became good friends throughout the project. We highly recommend them to anyone thinking of remodeling or building a home."

Accurate Development, LLC
Home Builders in Melbourne, IA
"I purchased my 2nd Accurate Development home just 2 years ago. I looked at other homes and other builders but didn't see the same quality and attention to detail in their homes that I had in mine. I needed a larger home or I would have stayed in my original Accurate home. The quality was impressive. I received compliments each time someone new visited my home. I moved into my first Accurate Development home in 2003 and my second in 2014 and I couldn't be a happier homeowner. When I purchased my second home, I had an extremely tight deadline. I made all of my decisions timely and at every step asked if we were going to meet the deadline. The promise was made and delivered upon without sacrificing quality or attention to detail. Everyone that worked on the house was friendly and answered my questions. I was there during every phase of the house being built and never felt uncomfortable with any of the workers and there was always a project manager nearby. The after-sale warranty is second to none and isn't just words on a sheet of paper, it represents the company's reputation and is taken seriously regardless of how small the issue may seem. I know this as I am a perfectionist and expect high quality, accuracy and there isn't a flaw or repair that misses my scrutiny. The owner of Accurate Development, Kevin Johnson, is very accessible and each house carries his "fingerprint" - is hallmark of quality. I love the sense of community built by Accurate Development and carried on by its home buyers. When I sold my first home and looked for another, it finally came down to not being able to give up the quality and workmanship but just as much to the neighborhood. I knew I would never find a more caring, watchful neighborhood than an Accurate Development neighborhood. And that was the final "pro" on my list of Pros and Cons that helped me to decide that I had to be in an Accurate Development. I wouldn't be happy anywhere else."
