“'I’m just like the buyers, I like character,' said Benes, who says Aspen builds 80 to 90 new homes a year. 'Today’s buyers, they want to be close to schools and have easy access to where they work.

Client Testimonials

Jackie U.

We can't express enough how thankful we are to have had Aspen build our home. The Aspen team gave us what felt like undivided attention from the very first meeting, spending several hours with us addressing concerns and calming our nerves prior to us even choosing them as our builder.  From that point on, we knew this was the group we wanted to work with. They were honest, forthcoming, and offered advice when we needed it. Bob prides himself on quality and craftsmanship. If his name is tied to it, he wants it done right.

At our first meeting Bob made us feel very comfortable, and we knew right away Aspen was the perfect company to build our house! Along the way, they were amazing at answering all of our questions and eager to make our home exactly what we wanted! Their on-staff interior designer, Rachel helped us with our entire house design, as well as picking out all of our materials and keeping track of our budget! She was a huge help, and we wouldn’t have known what to do without her! Aspen and all of their employees were a joy to work with, and we highly recommend them to our family and friends!

Greg & Sue B.

Aspen provided the "best" home building experience we could have imagined! The Aspen experience exceeded our expectations for customizing our home to make the "vision" we had for our home a reality.

Alanna C.

When looking at builders, one of the things we knew we didn’t want was a ‘cookie cutter’ house. Our favorite thing about building with Aspen was the level of customization we received when working with them. From tailoring our floor plans to meet our needs to letting us choose what we wanted for finishes, we were able to create our dream home to be exactly the way we wanted, and one that didn’t look like every other house on the block! We highly recommend Aspen Builders!

Lisa G.

We had a great experience building our new home with Aspen builders. Bob and Jake made sure our home included everything we wanted in it. Rachel was a huge help in keeping us on schedule and helping with the selection process. She was great to work with. Mitch, Joe and the rest of the team were very respectful and made sure our home was everything we wanted it to be. Everyone was very professional and willing to answer any questions. I would highly recommend Aspen Builders to anyone who is considering building a new home.

Our experience with the Aspen team has been outstanding. If you have read the other reviews you already know Rachel is a professional, respectful, organized, and fun person. I want to focus on another star of the Aspen team, Joe. He is the one who will walk through your house with you just before closing to make sure everything is perfect. There must be something in the water at Aspen because he too is professional, respectful, organized and a fun person. Joe shows you how everything in your house works and answers any maintenance questions you might have.
