We are half-way through the build of our dream home and couldn’t be more thrilled with our experience working with Sequoia. We left our first meeting with Maria feeling welcomed and immediately comfortable. The model home she walked us through was impressive, but we still were not sure building was the way for us to go. Over the next few months, Maria was always willing to meet us to see the model again, email, call, text, etc. She was very supportive and available to answer our questions (a lot of them) and ultimately made us feel confident about deciding to build. As luck would have it, two weeks after we signed our contract, COVID shut down most everything in Michigan, including construction. Sequoia was amazing at proactively keeping us updated on things they could do during this time, and the things that would impact the timeline. Once we were able to start the process of picking out our tile, flooring, cabinets, etc., Julia became an integral partner in the process. Her keen eye for detail, knowledge of all available materials and design sense is far superior to anyone we have ever met. Along our journey, there were a few ideas outside of the normal construction/features that we added. Matt and Julia were great about making them happen or walking us through why they may not work and offered better alternatives. They like to work WITH you because their ultimate goal is to make sure their clients are happy. You don’t ever feel pressured or not listened to.
They took the time to explain the building process, what they do and why they do it. When building new construction, there are always challenges along the way. It's not about the challenges, it's about how the builder handles the challenges. Sequoia Homes made sure everything met or exceeded our expectations.
Sequoia Homes exceeded my expectations! Their open layouts and craftsmanship design touches was what made me pick them to build my dream home but the positive building experience and the quality of the home surpassed every expectation! Matt and Julia are amazing to work with and made the sometimes stressful home building process exciting and fun! You get more for your money as their standard options are higher end and better quality compared to other builders. They were extremely helpful with assisting me in designing my home and helping me visualize the outcome. I absolutely love my new home and couldn't have done it without them!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Julia and Matt Russo of Sequoia Homes. This was my first time building so I started off a bit apprehensive. However, Julia and Matt made the process easy and enjoyable. From the beginning, it was very apparent that they take pride in their work and want to deliver an excellent product. Their communication was great throughout the entire process (including the pandemic). If I had a question, Julia was always quick with a very thorough and honest response. This allowed me to make informed decisions and stay within my budget. Upon request, Julia and Matt always made time to meet for on-site visits to monitor the progress of the home. During these walk-throughs, they were excited and proud to show off the quality of the build. They were also genuinely happy to see a satisfied client. If something did not meet their expectations it would be pointed out and corrected. We left every walk-through excited in anticipation for the finished home. I’ve been in the home for about two months now and could not be happier. I echo the other positive reviews and highly recommend building with Sequoia Homes.
Sequoia Homes' Matt and Julia are really nice people to work with planning and building your home. They are genuinely excited with you to plan your home. If something goes wrong during construction, they readily correct any issues. In our subdivision, Sequoia Homes standard features were MUCH better than the other 3 builder's standard features. The quality of construction was excellent. We've had no warranty issues in a year and a half. I would definitely use them again.
I had an extremely positive experience dealing with Sequoia homes. This was the first experience I had buying a new home. It was an Everest, which is a spec Colonial that Sequoia offers. My family and I moved in Nov. of 2019. I don't normally take the time to write reviews good or bad, but I feel compelled to do so on behalf of Sequoia. My wife and I shopped other builders, but were immediately drawn to Sequoia because their model was a layout that suited what we were looking for. We began to negotiate and came to an agreement on a home that they had in process. We had a opportunity to pick most of the finishes including brick and stone on the exterior. Sequoia coached us through the process without trying to upsell or putting pressure on us. They presented us with facts and their costs, and this allowed us to make decisions easily along the way. Additionally, we moved from a nearby location so we had the opportunity to visit the house regularly to monitor progress. Even for unannounced visits, the jobsite was always clean and the progress matched the communication we received from Sequoia. This resonated with me because of other job sites we had seen, and speaks to their detail orientation. If I asked for change, or an update on status, the builder was honest, even if it wasn't the answer they knew I wanted to hear. I appreciated this very much, being that it allowed me to plan for selling my old house, as well as moving to the current house. They always communicated in a timely manner, and made time for us to see the house when we requested. Lastly, the finished product meets our expectation of quality, and it was finished on time. We had a big push to be in on a timeline because we were expecting a new child. I made efforts to communicate the timeline to Sequoia. They promised they would do their best, but not by sacrificing quality. Ultimately, they delivered in all categories. I am not naïve to the fact that this is a business and there was some salesmanship involved. Regardless, they conducted their business with integrity, and professionalism. I would be happy to work with them again, and I consider them friends.
I am currently in the process of having my home built with Sequoia. I can’t say enough positive things about this family operated company. The entire Russo family is devoted to providing superior service and craftsmanship that simply can’t be compared. I would highly recommend Sequoia to any family searching for a new build that is structurally sound and packed with upgrades that are included in the price. I shopped for the perfect builder for almost an year so I can honestly say, what you get with Sequoia will blow you away compared to what other construction company’s are offering!
