I’ve worked with Markel Homes for 38 years as a graphic designer, creating all the branding collateral for the company, including project logos, renderings, brochures and photography. From the beginning of our relationship there has been a dedication to the highest standards in all aspects of the home-building process, from site planning to innovative architecture and the highest quality construction. Attention to detail in every home they build, at every price point, is a hallmark of Markel Homes, including professionally-designed hard surfaces and interior paint colors. Exterior color is considered on a neighborhood-wide basis to ensure a unique "look.” As a member of their marketing team, I appreciate being held to high standards as well and value the opportunity to contribute to their success.

Markel Homes is one of the best builders in Boulder County and Northern Colorado. From the design of their neighborhoods and floor plans to the options, finishes and construction, they know homes inside and out! And, their exceptional team worked diligently to ensure that we created the perfect home for me! I appreciated having the opportunity to make some interior modifications and to choose the options and finishes that fit my needs and personal style. Working with both Marlita and Scott on site was wonderful because, due to their experience in new homes, they offered great suggestions and ensured that construction was timely and well done. I love my new home! A big thank you to Markel Homes! Pat Kahler
Markel Homes offers standard finishes far superior to any other builder in Boulder county, whether in an entry level condo or a high end single family home. They take great care in meeting their buyer's needs and becoming an asset to the surrounding community. A very sophisticated quality builder and a true leader in the industry!
Known for excellence in design, architectural styling and building practices, family-owned Markel Homes continues to earn its reputation as one of Boulder County's premier homebuilders.
Village Brokers Inc. ( A real estate company) Has had the pleasure of previewing and showing several homes built by Markel. What has always struck me and my Client's is the luxurious feel of their homes from the entrance and throughout. Their floorplans, colors, upgrades and included finishes are wondrous. They are truly a hands on Builder who takes time with their Buyers to ensure great customer satisfaction. As a Managing /Employing real estate Broker I also have to say that they are extremely good at communication during the new home buying purchase and Realtor friendly as well. If you are a Realtor with a Client looking for impeccable construction and unique designs - please show these homes last and win a sale. If you are a Buyer, look at the homes first and look no more.
