Featured Reviews for Home Builders in Reston, VA
SEKAS HOMES LTD
Home Builders in Reston, VA
"When my wife and I decided to move from Western Fairfax to the Vienna/Oakton region, we did not initially consider building a home. Instead, we looked at probably 30-40 used homes in the area selling in the school districts and price range we wanted. Over time, we started to notice the names of home builders. It turned out a number of the homes we liked the most were Sekas homes. We liked the layout, the location, and most especially, the quality. His 10-15 year old homes looked brand new (structurally). I was impressed that his work would stand the test of time like that. As we started looking more closely at the builder, we discovered that he had a number of new construction projects that were within our price range. With that discovery, we decided, "Why compromise with an older home when we can buy brand new and have it exactly the way we want?" We signed the contract last fall and have now lived in our new Sekas home for just over 30-days. From then until today, the process of building our home has been outstanding. Let me give you some specifics: We wanted a pool to be built in conjunction with the home. I have read many horror stories about pools and pool companies and we wanted Sekas to take on that risk. We were willing to pay him the extra money so that he would ensure it was done right. Result: Our pool is beautiful - we couldn't be happier - and the Sekas staff ensured every aspect of the project (deck, patio, coping, tile, fence, electrical, plumbing, etc) met county code requirements and was finished on time and in a quality manner. The most important reason I believe this company produces such a good product is its people. I call tell John Sekas invests a good amount of time and energy into ensuring everyone on his team (from the plumber to his design specialist) deliver consistent quality. The 6-month process of building a home is truly a relationship. And like any other relationship, you see the best and worst in people over that time during stressful situations. The Sekas team certainly had to deal with the worst of myself and my wife on numerous occasions. I could tell they were used to dealing with Type-A personalities and actually took pride in delivering exactly what we wanted. The selection process is daunting. My biggest recommendation is to do as much homework as possible before signing the contract. Once it's signed, Sekas was off to the races and the construction process progresses VERY quickly. We were still researching the type of bathtubs we wanted when the plumber was ready for his final county inspection. Regardless, Sekas worked with us and everything worked out fine even when we were late (they were never late). Their designer, Betsy, is an amazing person. She has a LOT on her plate yet somehow keeps it all straight and has the patience of an angel. One aspect of the company I really appreciated was their willingness to make changes without nickel and dimeing us on everything. We completing changed the layout of the basement. No charge. We completely changed the layout of the master bath and walk-in closets. No charge. We made late changes to appliances, garage doors, brick, and tile - again no charge. They came close to charging us a few times (when it looked like they had already ordered the product we originally requested) but they worked things out with their distributors and we got off without penalty. Regarding the warranty period - I have had to make several minor warranty calls already. The contractors seemed to go out of their way to give me priority and take care of my issue - I think they value working with Sekas and don't want him upset with their service. Additionally, the Sekas team have made it clear that I could simply call them if I need any warranty work. I choose to call the contractors directly so I can set up a date and time that is best for me (instead of working though the middle man back and forth). The bottom line is I am convinced John Sekas stands behind his product and will do everything reasonable to ensure the customer is happy. The reason we went with Sekas was the quality of his product. By looking at his 10-15 year old homes I could tell they were built to last. Now that I have a new one of my own (and watched it being built from the ground up) I can honestly say I feel ever stronger about that belief. Everyone who has visited our home has been blown away with their attention to detail, design, and the home's superb features. We certainly got our money's worth. I highly recommend Sekas Homes. I love my new house!"

Carr Homes
Home Builders in Reston, VA
"Overall, we had an excellent experience with Carr Homes. They were flexible and easy to work with, unlike most builders they were open to small changes in design and layout, and when a problem did occur they were upfront and provided options on the way forward. Excellent builder that is dedicated to quality and customer satisfaction."
- Corey Keppler
OPaL, LLC
Home Builders in Reston, VA
"OPal not only builds beautiful homes that are thoughtfully designed and constructed, but they operate with unprecedented professionalism and pride in their craftsmanship. They take the time to review the details and systems within their homes so that the owner fully understands how to best take care of their investment for years to come. They empower owners to not just love their new home, but to understand how it works and why it was built with the consideration it was and what that means for the long term. We didn't buy just a beautiful, well proportioned home, we invested in a home that was built with efficiency and technological advancement as the foundation with a special focus on the details and consideration to the material selections. Our experience has been the BEST, and coming from an interior designer who has worked in the industry for 8 years, I didn't know I could be "wowed" on the subject I study daily."

They do some amazing renovations and are a fantastic company to deal with."

Alair Homes Arlington
Home Builders in Reston, VA
"In the past we used a design/build company and did not feel that we had control over the process or the budget. When we reviewed the bill we found the mark-up was excessive, especially when sub-contractors were used for most of the work. This time around we chose to use Chad with Arlington Construction Mangement because of the ability to control expenses, choose the products used in building our addition and select our own sub-contractors. The ability to get several estimates and meet the subs for each trade beforehand made a huge difference in our experience. We completed our project 2 months earlier than predicted and were able to stay within budget. We ended up saving 28% from our lowest bid and we were able to use upgraded products along the way. Chad gave us great advice, support and knowledge to help us through our project. I know we would not have received the same personal service from any other builder. We would use Chad again and would highly recommend him to anyone looking into building."
