Testimonials From Our Homeowners

I want to take a minute and write to you to express our gratitude for you and the whole Creative Homes Team. You made our dream come true, and every time I enter our new home I cannot believe it is ours. Thanks again!

Siadak Family

We absolutely loved our new home from the first time we saw it, and have felt the same ever since moving in! From start to finish the entire process working with Creative Homes was smooth sailing. Eric Ostlund was always willing to answer our questions and go the extra mile to make sure we were happy. Everyone else we met from the company displayed the same friendly, professional, and courteous nature. We couldn't be happier with our house or our home buying experience!

We love it from top to bottom inside and out!!! Thank You!! Creative Homes has been fantastic to work with, they have made it a breeze purchasing a new home. Every single person I’ve met from Creative Homes has been a pleasure to meet and they are very friendly and knowledgeable.

We visited Creative Homes after seeing 3 other builders, and over each of the previous, we didn’t feel that our situation was being taken seriously and having kids around appeared less than desirable. Then, we walked into Creative Homes and immediately walked into a welcoming environment. Our kids were addressed individually instead of being simply ignored or considered a nuisance. It didn’t take long for us to decide “this is it”. After the initial meet-and-greet, each following meeting (always with the kids!) was very welcoming, and the process of selecting our properly and home was as smooth as could be! If I had to go through the process again, I may choose a different home, but would definitely pick the same builder!

This is the second home we have built and after the horrible experience we had the first time, I said we would never do it again. Thankfully, our experience with Creative Homes was the exact opposite. We have had a wonderful experience with the quality and detail of the home and everyone we have met from Creative Homes. We have recommended them to many people, hopefully some of them will choose Creative Homes and have the same great experience that we had.

We had an exceptional experience with Creative Homes and would recommend them to anyone. Not only did we get a well-built home, but the customer service exceeded our expectations. From our first meeting, to well-after we closed on our new home, the Creative Homes team made us feel like we were family. They answered phone calls and emails promptly and were always professional and helpful. I expected that after we closed on our home they would disappear, but they regularly checked in with us and followed up on anything we needed. We already know we want Creative Homes to build our next home (in many, many years)!

If you are thinking about building a home with Creative do it! The entire process and team has been outstanding. Everyone warns you about how awful building a house is, with Creative it has been nothing but a turn key easy process. Their team is best in class.

We recently moved into our home built by Creative Homes and absolutely love it. The building process was so fun and easy; every week it was so exciting to see progress on our home. The design studio made for an easy experience when picking all the materials for our home. From start to completion, their attention to detail was phenomenal. The handbook I receive from Creative on the building process to yearly maintenance of our home sets them apart from any other builder I have seen. I receive nothing but compliments on all the high end finishes Creative Homes has used. Creative Homes has a solid team of experts and were always there to answer any question we would have. There is no doubt that I would recommend Creative Homes to anyone building a home.

Our family recently purchased a move in ready home from Creative Homes and we absolutely love it. The design and quality of the home was done with great attention to detail. The staff, in all phases of our purchase, was amazingly accommodating and professional. I would recommend Creative to anyone who is looking to move into a new house or build a new house!

The entire time at Creative Homes has been phenomenal to work with through our building process. My sales specialist made the entire sales process a breeze, was detail oriented and spent a lot of time making sure that everything was just as I wanted. The neighborhood builder communicates to keep me "in the loop" and up to date on the schedule, work timeframes, walk throughs and is always available to answer questions. This is the 3rd time I have built and everything about the process has been second to none. The design center at their corporate office was amazing and allowed me the ability to see everything for my home in one place vs. carting tile, carpet and paint colors from one location to the next. And the trade partners that Creative works with have offered outstanding service and have been going above and beyond my expectations. I appreciate the entire Creative team and cannot speak highly enough of their work!!

Hills of Troy

We had an incredible experience with our build by Creative. We LOVE our new home, & are so grateful for such an easy-going process from start to finish!

Danny & Jamie

We really had a great home building experience with Creative. Our home was completed on schedule and they worked closely with us on every aspect of the project. Our site supervisor was incredible – he was catching things before we even noticed them and had them remedied quickly and to our standards. The design process and selection process were fun and Katie had great suggestions and knew her pricing backwards and forwards. She got back to us quickly with changes or modifications. Overall, we would highly recommend Creative and would build with them again in the future.

Our first home building experience was with Creative Homes and it could not have gone better. Every step along the way was great. From the initial conversations and choosing our lot and floor plan, to our design meeting and the actual build itself Creative's team made us feel at ease and went above and beyond. We felt like they truly cared and looked out for our best interests. They even finished early for us which was so appreciated as we were expecting twins a few weeks later! We would highly recommend Creative Homes to anyone looking for a home builder.

I never believed my husband and I would build a house together and have such a wonderful experience. We always heard what a nightmare building a home can be; the problems, delays, budgets skyrocketing and God forbid a possible divorce. Well, I am here to say that building our "Dream Home" with Creative Homes went smoothly from start to finish. We first met Danielle Yegge while touring her model home in Stillwater. Her confidence, knowledge, professionalism, wonderful personality and of course all the beautiful model homes we had seen was enough to start us on our home building journey. We loved "Creative Homes" design style and were so pleased that they listened to exactly what we wanted, worked to create a home design compatible to our wishes and kept us within budget. As first time home builders we had a lot of questions ( some silly I have to admit) and Danielle was like our guardian angel. No matter what, she was there for us. We also had several other wonderful working relationships with Joe Braun, Jill, Claire and Travis. Our home turned out beautiful. It is exactly what we wanted for our retirement years. I got my shiplap, screened in porch and gourmet kitchen and my husband has all the storage space we never had before. I could go on and on but I will just add that I am extremely happy we chose Creative Homes as our builder and would definitely recommend them to anyone considering building a home!

Creative Homes put together our dream home! We were so nervous about the process and making the wrong decisions, but they were there to make everything turn out perfect. We even got to customize our floor plan and it turned out fantastic. They went above and beyond to make our needs met! A special shout out to Eric Ostlund that we can't thank enough for being there for us during the entire process! He was great to work with and made sure we could be a part of the entire process. We would highly recommend Creative Homes and their entire great team to anyone looking at building a home.

Heritage Greens

Everyone at Creative Homes was very easy to work with. They were very kind, helpful, professional and helped us through some ARC roadblocks so we could get the home we always wanted. Big shout out to Eric Ostlund who was there every step of the way and made our dream a reality. We have been in our new home for a few months now and could not be happier. My husband and I highly recommend Creative Homes!

It has been four months since we have moved into our home and I cannot put into words how thankful we are that we built with Creative. From Kim in sales, Matt the neighborhood builder, Sarah our warranty contact, all the way up to Nick, every single Creative employee we’ve been in contact with has shown how much they care about us as customers. They’re the type of company you feel like once you move in you want to invite over for dinner and drinks once a month! The entire process from writing an offer to closing on the home was seamless and we loved working with their preferred lender! I think what put this company over the top was the warranty process. With the increased new construction sales year over year, many people who purchase new construction complain about the lack of availability subcontractors have because they have become so busy. What has made Creative stand out during this warranty process is their teams follow up during our 2-month warranty review. Between Matt, Kim, and Sarah they have had some of the most excellent follow up I have seen by any company, period. Even if they didn’t have an answer we always got an email, a text, a phone call letting us know we were not forgotten about. In conversation with other friends and family who have built new construction with other companies, I truly believe that Creative is unique in that! I cannot recommend them enough!

Wow! It's hard to know where to even start and I know I won't be able to list everything, but I have to try and tell you how we awesome we feel about the whole building process with Creative Homes and how much we truly love our new home. Our first ever experience with Creative Homes was after we had kind of given up on finding a builder to help us build a new home not entirely custom, but with custom options. We were beginning to think that we would never find a builder to build us a quality home within the budget we had set aside to spend. Then we met you and saw the model in Boulder Ponds. You were so awesome and patient with me as I rattled off all of the things that I wanted in my home. You listened and you were the first person to tell us that we COULD get the things we wanted AND stay within our budget. You even took the time to help layout a custom kitchen for me to include the things I really wanted. There wasn't one thing on my list that you or Creative Homes could not provide for us. I have to admit that we were a bit skeptical at this point...turned out we had no need to feel that way! You were completely right! We have built and remodeled a few homes over the years and we thought we knew what to expect with the building process. Again, Creative Homes showed us a completely different way. The process of building with Creative Homes was the most relaxing (sounds weird, but so true!) home building experience we have ever been through. The communication provided by you from the very start until the very end has been phenomenal. Not once during the whole process did we ever sit and wonder what was going on regarding our home. Having access to a Design Studio (and a wonderful home designer named Jill) was something new to us. We had not experienced this with our other builds. From the moment our appointment was set until right before closing, the communication and knowledge of all things design that Jill provided us was nothing short of amazing. Going in for our appointment we were met with a sign personally welcoming us in. These simple, personal touches set Creative Homes above others. It didn't matter what we were spending on our new home build, we were made to feel like we truly mattered to everyone we came in contact with at Creative Homes. Having our weekly update calls with you and Rob was something we looked forward to each week. Again, we were never left wondering what the status was or what the price of anything was. Every single time we had a question regarding a change or a change request, we were given the costs and how it would impact our timeline. We never felt pressured or pushed aside by anyone. Rob and Clay were patient and kind and knowledgable. Obviously things come up with new home builds and when they did, they were addressed and taken care of with such professionalism and speed that it was like they never even happened. Again, something almost unheard of in the new home building process it seems. If we didn't love our new home so much, I would be already planning my next build with Creative Homes!;) Seriously, we can't thank you enough for helping us get the home we wanted in a timeframe that was promised and well within the budget we had decided we would stick to. I honestly wish I could name everyone behind the scenes at Creative Homes who works so hard to make customers like us have such an awesome home building experience. This company has the standards and employees that all companies should take note of and follow the example of. Creative Homes knocks it out of the park from start to finish and even after finish!!:) Thank you, Dave, for taking the time last fall to sit down and listen to us and for following through on all the things you said you could! You rock and we are so grateful!

I cannot express how happy we are with the overall experience we have had with Creative Homes. Back in February of 2019 we were frustrated and feeling hopeless. We looked at probably 20 different homes that just didn’t feel right. We were looking for our forever home. We were going to even settle on a smaller home to live in temporarily as we just didn’t think building a home was possible. Finally our realtor introduced us to Eric Ostlund with Creative Homes. He was AMAZING, we clicked right away and he helped us put together our wish list of everything we wanted in a home. We were looking for privacy, a big enough yard to have a pool and still be close to town. Based on our needs and wants, he recommended their brand new development at Summit Ridge in Hudson for us. It was exactly what we were looking for! We were so impressed with how well Eric listened to our needs, was able to get us a rough estimate of the cost during our meeting and followed up with us. We bid out another developer that we had been in contact with for a while. Based on the product their was no comparison, Creative Home was hands down much better quality. It was not the quality that sold us on building with Creative, it was Eric and his customer service, attention to detail and follow up that made the decision easy for us. We were told exactly what to expect in the months to come as far as going through the construction and design of our home. First we met Ray our construction manager and he was amazing to work with as well. Then we spent time in the design center with Anna. Anna, was very patient with us and really helped us every step of the way. A lot of people say building a home is hard and a true test of a marriage. I can honestly say that with Creative it was not the case! Sure, there were some things that happened along the way that were uncontrollable and to no fault of Creative Homes but Eric and Ray were in constant communication with me and once we set a closing date everything stayed on track! I had a call with Eric and Ray every Monday from the day they starting digging our home to the day we closed. We have now been in our home since October 30th and everyday my husband and I say “we love our house”. Everything from the flooring to the fixtures turned out better than we could have imagined. From the beginning to the end Creative was there for us every step of the way! We are so grateful to Creative Homes for building our dream home!
