Barenz Builders
Home Builders in Milwaukee, WI
"Building a house is extremely stressful however Ronny, and the rest of the Barenz company, guided us through the process taking care of managing the work so we could focus on other things. Ronny, in particular, was very responsive and gave us confidence that everything was under control. Always a professional Ronny has a calm demeanor and is very knowledgeable about the home building industry. Plus, he's just a good guy. We would recommend Ronny and Barenz Builders to anyone interested in building a custom home as we did. They were great to work with."

Engerman Companies
Home Builders in Milwaukee, WI
"The Engerman crew were professional and helpful from the design development all the way through to the completion details of my project. The owner was friendly and very attentive to our needs and budget. Overall- I would say that we got much more value for our money then we ever expected! The project manager was great and helped me understand the process of my build/renovation and had amazing communication by keeping me in the loop on timelines and progress milestones. I am not in the construction field so therefore I don't know the right questions to ask or what is standard practice. I was grateful to be treated with respect, as they educated me and involved me in the process. As the build was underway their onsite guys where courteous and always made sure to wave and say good morning, the office manager was welcoming and very helpful, and the owners wife even stopped out to help me pick out paint colors and tiles! As they finished the build, the project manager made sure to use quality materials such as solid core doors, poplar trim, high end fixtures, and custom cabinets. Engermans crew definitely cared, and paid attention to details that ultimately make the house shine. The end result was a beautiful home that my family loves! I would hire this builder again, and again. Thanks for all the hard work!!"

Highland Builders LLC
Home Builders in Milwaukee, WI
"We completed a large remodeling project with Highland Builders, and we truly have nothing but great things to say about the experience. Highland was consistently on time, on budget,and full of great ideas and solutions from the beginning design phase all the way through the construction process. On many occasions they went above and beyond our expectations, being 'on call' for many months and always coming through immediately in any situation. All of their subcontractors were excellent; their professionalism and quality of work were outstanding, and they became like family for the many months they worked in our home. We would recommend Highland to anyone without hesitation."
