Home Builder reviews in Des Moines

    The house looked good while we were looking. The price should have been a tipoff to the quality of the fixtures, workmanship and after sale service. First if you do buy from this company and you need warranty work DO NOT LET HIM DELAY!!! He will delay until the end then say it is too late! He has told several people to pare down the list because it is too long. It took the threat of a lawsuit to even get my punch list done, DO NOT ACCEPT THE HOUSE IF IT IS NOT DONE FIRST. He has you sign many extra papers at closing when you are distracted by all the paperwork that says he does not warrant a lot of the work he does unless you catch it during the walk through. He only put 1.5 inches of topsoil even though he is required to put a minimum of 8 inches, according to the plans and DOE for surface water drainage. You also have to know about standing water issues in the yard because of the extra papers during the walk through. READ THE CCRs!! HE IS THE PRESIDENT OF OUR HOA, HIS WIFE WAS TREASURER, HIS DAUGHTER WAS SECRETARY. HE WILL NOT GIVE US THE FINANCIAL RECORDS, we have had to retain attorneys to have faulty construction fixed, the landscaping fixed and to get the financial records we are entitled to see by law! He preys on mostly first time home buyers and people that english is their second language so everyone WILL NOT COMPARE WHAT IS GOING ON! 
    This is NOT a company you want to do ANY business with!

    Sockeye Homes
    After meeting with Tod and going over our vision for our project it was refreshing for Sockeye to take our job seriously.  We gave Tod our budget and within a couple of days he was scheduling a meeting to go over the numbers.  To our surprise he took our numbers and came up with a plan.  It was important that Sockeye homes meet our expectations of quality, budget, communication, overall experience and an amazing finished product.  As a result of their design our home won State and National Awards in the Addition Category of $100,000 - $250,000.
    Coming into the project with strong ideas of our own Tod and Kristin were respectful of our views and ideas.  They considered our ideas and incorporated them in a structural and visually appealing manner that gave us a beautifully remodeled home along with a gorgeous addition.
    Working with Sockeye Homes was such a great experience that we would do it again!  Coming from someone that lived in their home during the remodel and addition the impact to our family was completely minimized.   Throughout the entire process our goals and expectations were far exceeded.  Tod and Kristin communicated the steps, the plan and where we were along the way and what to expect from week to week.  We can?t express enough what a pleasure it was to work with the Sockeye Crew along with Tod and Kristin.  Thank you for such a positive experience!!

    Madrona Builders LLC
    Even though we had such terrible weather and wind, the work crew was there every day. They were incredibly respectful of my home and took off their shoes every time they entered the house. They cleaned up after themselves every day and neatly stacked the supplies that were needed for the job. If I had questions, Ryan went out of his way to get me answers. If there was a delay in getting some of the materials I was informed ahead of time and kept updated on the costs. I was presented an itemized bill each month for the work that had been completed. The job took about 3 months to complete and the house has never looked better and more importantly, it is now weather tight!
