“We love our house! Thanks so much for making this an enjoyable experience & for making our decisions easier...”
“I wanted to send off a quick note this morning to send our appreciation to you and your team. I need you to know that dealing with every individual within the Astoria family has been a pleasure. It’s clear to me as a client that you and your team are vested in ensuring each project (even one as small as ours) is produced with the highest level of professionalism and quality. Each individual within your team cares about your clients, and as a business owner it’s inspired me to increase my standards.
As you are aware, Stacey and I have built several times in the past, and we need to let you know that there is no one within the marketplace that conducts business or produces a product like Astoria. Your reputation within the industry is one of integrity and quality, and not only will we continue to build with Astoria with each new house we purchase, but we will go above and beyond to refer new prospects to you.
Thank you for putting together a team that is wonderful to deal with as yours, but more importantly thank you making our home building experience memorable and exciting.”
“This is just a note to say that I’m thrilled and really impressed at the progress with our house. I know you are all working hard behind the scenes as well as the forefront on our behalf. I want you to know how much I appreciate everyone at Astoria for their professionalism and attention to detail as we go through this process. It has not gone unnoticed.
I’ve been able to get away from work a couple of times to meet the guys working on the house. They have been nothing but courteous, friendly and respectful. Wow what a terrific team!... and they really are proud to be working for you.
Today I saw Jack and Lynne’s home for the first time. It’s a beautiful house. The detail is everything and more than I hoped for our home. Even in these early stages I have found plenty to brag about with Astoria. Thank you for taking pride in what you do… it shows. ”
“We would like to thank you for making our new custom home building experience a stress free, enjoyable one. Building on acreage can bring on a wide range of planning and a need for a builder with experience and knowledge. With the forces of nature working against us and the May 18 possession date, I can say we were more than impressed to see our new house completed on time.
Darrel was always available for updates, changes, and positive reassurance. Your sub trades were all friendly and co-operative making our progress visits even more enjoyable. I was very appreciative of all the time that was given to me during the process of picking out cabinets, paint, and all the other purchases that were made. I would build again with Astoria Homes and recommend them others. ”
“I would like to thank Astoria Homes and staff for their skill and management in the building of four (4) spec homes in the Inglewood area during the past 18 months. I have appreciated the time you took to finalize the details of each build. I also found your trades and suppliers to be efficient and could offer a wide variety of finishings in their showrooms. As a result of your expertise and craftsmanship the sales of these homes exceeded my business forecast.
It has been a pleasure doing business with Astoria Homes and I look forward to discussing new ventures in the future. ”
“In October of 2002 our family moved into our dream home. Darrell, his staff and the many Astoria sub-trades made the construction process efficient and they delivered the quality we had expected in an estate home.
We always received responsive and caring service from Astoria. Throughout the construction many decisions are needed. While proactively keeping the project on track, Astoria allowed us to feel like we were in control of decisions, always presenting options and other considerations. Astoria demonstrated a deep commitment to ensuring we got what we wanted. They were always able to find solutions and known sub-trades to execute the work in a timely fashion.
Communication is at the heart of project management and we were always in the loop even when travel had Bill away from the project for extended periods. As a result, we had no surprises and not a single dispute to deal with. It was obvious that Astoria also maintained good relations with all the sub-trades and any problems were promptly addressed. ”
With new home construction it is evitable that touch-ups and follow-ups are required after the move in. Astoria made these activities “painless” by tight coordination of the affected sub-trades and scheduling that minimized disruption to our family. ”
In summary, we are extremely happy with services provided by Astoria Homes and would recommend them without reservation. We sincerely appreciate the extra effort that Darrell and his staff put into this project and their friendly style that made dealing with them as effortless as possible. Best wishes for your future success! ”
“In August 2002 my house burned and had to be completely demolished. After examining various building contractors, I chose Darrell Haase of Astoria Homes to rebuild. He showed compassion and understanding of my plight and was patient with my indecisions. I really appreciated Darrell realizing it was different to build a house someone had lived in for 19 years as everyone makes adjustments to their home to make it work for them. He also had useful suggestions on many aspects such as space utilization. He gave me names of people who were knowledgeable and great to deal with when it came to the finishing of the house – cabinet makers, flooring, lighting, paint, etc.
Astoria refused to build on the old foundation even though the first inspections deemed it safe. Darrell had a third inspection done and found flaws that would have caused problems in the future. Darrell or his superintendent, Dean, were always more than willing to meet with me at a time or place of my choosing – early morning or late evening and most importantly, the workmanship of the house and all of the finishing is superb.
My house was rebuilt in under 4 months, no easy feat as it was completely developed up and down. It is the same in many ways but the changes made by Astoria make it delightful. A home is a lifetime commitment and Darrell builds a house to which one can commit. I would definitely recommend Astoria Homes to anyone who is building a new house because of their integrity, craftsmanship and dedication to doing the best possible work. ”
