We have a great passion for custom homes and the fabulous craftsmanship required to bring our sketches to life. Read the following recent testimonials where clients have shared how they feel about their design build experience and you'll see that passion.
Dave & Mary, New Home Client - We started working with A. Perry Homes after we interviewed several architects to build a custom luxury home. We had a good feeling after talking with Tony that he would be passionate about our project and that he understood our goals, and we were right! We had a lot of fun throughout the whole design process. Tony and his team were very cognizant of our needs and wants while incorporating many creative ideas that blended into the plan. His building superintendent was wonderful to work with as well, keeping us apprised of everything that went on at the building site. The choices and decisions that need to be made in these types of projects are infinite, and we thought it was going to be overwhelming; as it turns out it was nothing but a pleasure. Their experience and intuitive nature regarding our style made the selection outings something to look forward to. Another point I want to mention is their prompt response to all our emails and phone calls. Thoughts and ideas went through our minds constantly during this process, and the communication was nothing less than fabulous. We truly enjoyed the incredible A. Perry Home delivered to us.
Dr. Steve Coulson, New Home Client - My new home experience began with another builder who went bust. A. Perry Homes came to the rescue. They took over, got us back on track and delivered a beautiful finished project. They even made it fun for us! Their talented architects uncovered many flaws in the previous builder’s work and developed great solutions that made the house even better than we dreamed. In these economic times, it is even more important to choose an architect and builder with integrity. You can trust A. Perry Homes to deliver a superior product. They turned our nightmare into our dream home.
Celeste, New Home Client - We had great fun designing and building a fantastic custom home with A. Perry Homes! From the very beginning during the architectural phase, through the design phases and ultimately getting the keys to our home, the A. Perry team and contractors were professional and great to work with. For the most part, deadlines were met and we stuck fairly close to our original budget. We went slightly over due to our own changes and direction. The A. Perry team is always responsive to our questions, concerns, and needs - and continues to be so since final construction was completed. We now own a gorgeous, top quality home and are very proud of it. We'd do it all over again with the same team of professionals at A. Perry Homes!
Nikki, Remodel Client - We had a great experience with A. Perry Homes. We hired them to remodel the interior and exterior of our home and every employee and subcontractor we interacted with was professional, polite, and great to work with. Communication, selections, and our project schedule was easily managed via their construction management software. Given that my husband is an experienced commercial contractor, we found their pricing to be very fair and their process transparent. We receive compliments on our home from everyone who visits. We enjoyed the process and end product so much that we have hired them again for a much larger project. I highly recommend this wonderful company.
Jeff & Toni Palan, New Home Client - Tony’s firm was able to come up with innovative and cost saving ideas throughout the design build process. He has the “it” factor, one that brings a huge amount of passion, confidence, knowledge and very key, trust to the client. That’s why you need A. Perry Homes for your next home project.
Allison, New Home Client - A. Perry Homes has been a tremendous partner with us throughout the process of designing and building our custom dream home. We interviewed several highly recommended local builders and ultimately decided on A. Perry not only for their expertise but also because they treated us as if we were part of their extended family. They listened to our goals and desires, working closely and patiently with us through many iterations to come up with a design that far exceeded our expectations. Throughout the project thus far, all members of the team from President Tony Perry to Architect John Anstadt to Architectural Coordinator Elke Anstadt to Project Manager Dave VerMeulen have been extremely accessible and have worked closely with us to keep the project on schedule. Their use of an online tool called Co-Construct has been extremely helpful in managing communications, design selections and budget details and was unique among all of the builders we interviewed. In addition to being very professional during the entire process, they have also kept the project fun by including our children in several phases, including the demolition of the previously existing house. We would highly recommend A. Perry to anyone and look forward to working with them over the next few months to complete our dream home.
Laura, New Home Client - A. Perry is the architect and builder of our currently in progress new custom home in a North Shore suburb of Chicago. The firm has been excellent to date. Design was based on our needs and with our close participation and within our constraints, but still with creative solutions and recommendations to yield an overall beautiful layout/design. Proposal was cost conscious but with long term quality in mind and completely transparent. Subs and material suppliers are chosen based on overall quality, flexibility and service approach. Building process to date has been flexible enabling changes during the build phase. All firm members and sub contractors have been wonderful to partner with. We are looking forward to living in our beautiful new home - designed and built to meet our needs/style of living.
Howard, Remodel Client - A. Perry Company did an outstanding job from design to completion of this house modernization. Project manager was outstanding, crews were on time, work quality was excellent and have recommended them to friends.
Amy, New Home Client - A. Perry Homes did a fabulous job designing and building my custom dream home. Their architecture team came up with outstanding ideas and details that make my home really stand out- a unique yet fluid combination of architecture styles. Not a week goes by that I don't receive a compliment on our new home. They took our wish list and turned the design into something neither one of us could have imagined, and the layout truly fits my family's lifestyle. The project management staff (Elke, Kent and our superintendent Jack) were easy to work with, the process was transparent, and our project came in on budget. My family and I keep a busy schedule, and we liked their one-team, seamless and efficient design build process. They took a process that I was worried could be stressful and made it fun.
Louise, Remodel Client - Our initial goal was to update the kitchen and bathrooms in our 40-year-old home. During the concept phase with Tony and John, we expressed our concerns with the layout of our first floor. They returned with an incredibly creative and innovative design plan to utilize our entire space. In addition to the uniqueness of their design, they incorporated much architectural detail that truly modernized and beautified our home. The project involved working with a variety of vendors (cabinetry, appliance, lighting, plumbing, stone, etc.), a process made enjoyable by Elke, who accompanied us and consulted on purchase decisions. The vendors and tradesmen they used were uniformly of top quality and dependability. The A. Perry team was patient, thoughtful, consistently gave us good advice, and equally important, a delight to work with. We are enjoying living in our beautifully remodeled home - formerly consisting of many small rooms- now thoroughly modernized and open with wonderful sight lines through the home and to the garden.
