Reviews for Ankeny Home Builders

Rated Review by Chris C.
"These people are the worst to deal with. There is not only no service after the sale, they are contentious and arrogant to deal with.
The owner of the company and his 2 brothers ( the realtors) are dishonest, rude and unprofessional. They lied to us multiple times and tried to break our purchase agreement even up to the day of closing. They did not show up to the bank at closing time. We called them to see where they were at and was told they found somebody willing to pay a little more for the property we already had a non-contingent contract to buy. We had to explain to them that they were legally obligated and need to get to the closing table. 30 minutes later we call them to find they went to the wrong bank. Then a courier shows up with wrong papers and they tried to rewrite the deal / excluding contractual obligations of $1000 worth of add-ons. We did not let them off the hook and documented the list of remaining items to finish in the closing documents. Then they screwed up the
by listing the wrong name on it and that took an extra 6 weeks to get them to correct.
does not honor their contractual obligations and does not finish the job. They have still refused to complete the list of items written into the contract, so we will now send them the bill and let the lawyer work at getting it get it out of them.
is still in breach of contract as of June 1. The most disgusting experience was finding that one of their workers had deficated in an empty 5
paint pail, put the lid on and left it with the rest of paint samples in our basement. The owner of the company refused to acknowledge this problems and would not take responsibility for it... shameless. He says they don't have any dissatisfied customers other than me. He lives in a fantasy world. Bankers, lawyers, realtors, subcontractors and even 2 of their own employees acknowledge they are hurting financially and 25 houses behind fixing lots of problems, same as ours.
does not take live up to fixing the problems caused by their employees and / or their sub contractors. You will hear every excuse in the book about who's to blame or why it's not completed, but they did not finish the job. I caution any one planning to buy a home form them, make sure to get it all done and completed prior to closing or do not do business with them. Those folks are dishonest.

"They did an awesome job!! We received a spot on estimate from
. Once we gave him the approval to go ahead, we were immediately on his schedule. His crew showed up every morning on time and jumped right in. They moved very quickly and we were so impressed with his service. They cleaned as they went along, so we didn't have to worry about debris during the process. I highly recommend T&E for any home remodeling job.
