What Our Clients Are Saying

Sandy Baird - Vice President

JE Dunn Construction

Both being from commercial construction backgrounds, we have extremely critical eyes and definite opinions on the quality of construction. That being said, we are very pleased with our new home and the quality of workmanship by Neighborhood Builders. From the beginning, we were impressed with the desire to exceed our expectations, which they have done. They were incredibly patient as we detailed every single aspect of our fully custom home. We already have and will continue to recommend Neighborhood Builders to anyone looking to build a home.

Jon & Cari Berman

We could not be happier with our house. Throughout our buying process and as well since we have moved in, Neighborhood Builders has been extremely easy and pleasant to work with. While we did not have the house custom-built for us from the start, we have felt like they gave our house the same type of attention we would expect had they custom-built it specifically for us and our house design is without a doubt one that we would have chosen in any event. We did have Neighborhood Builders custom finish the basement, and are extremely impressed with the quality and timeliness of the job done.


Some of the unique touches our house has, from the castle turret to the wall texturing are unlike any houses we've seen before, and are part of why we love the house so much. We would highly recommend Neighborhood Builders to anyone looking for their new dream home!

Tony & Stephany M, Waukee

Neighborhood Builders made the building process easy. They were extremely patient when answering all of our questions, provided options and plans with character, and met every deadline. The design center was awesome and made personalizing our home easy. Working with Neighborhood Builders was a great experience!

Steve and Mary S.

Waukee, Iowa

Mary and I want to thank you for building us a wonderful home. We looked all over town, the attention to detail and quality construction you give far outshined anything we looked at. Neighborhood Builders give so much more than other builders. The value for the dollar was outstanding. We were also impressed with the time you took explaining the details and workings of our home. We could really tell that you were about pleasing your customers. Mary and I will recommend you to anyone we know that is looking for a new home. You should be proud of your product, we are.

Mike Peterson

Waukee, Iowa

From start to finish, Neighborhood Builders went above and beyond my expectations and worked with us to customize our perfect home. We are continuously receiving compliments from friends on the uniqueness and craftsmanship of our new home. Neighborhood Builders, made my first time building/customizing a home much easier than expected, and they were able to make suggestions that truly made our home fit our own personal style. I would recommend Neighborhood Builders to any of my friends, family or anyone that is concerned about quality, craftsmanship and great customer service during and after the buying process.

Julie and Pedro

Waukee, Iowa

We found Neighborhood Builder's process to be very unique and accommodating to our lifestyle. We were pressed for time and had several special requests along the way. They worked with us so that all of our needs were met. They stand by their work and are genuinely good, caring people - which are qualities that are hard to find in a builder these days.

Chad M.

Johnston, Iowa

Our experience with Neighborhood Builders was very positive in a time of an uncertain housing market. The level of authentic attention we received far out matched the other builders we have worked with in the past. Neighborhood Builders showed a true partnership with our realtor that made doing business exceptionally easy. As for the home we purchased, Neighborhood Builders' attention to detail and uniqueness drew us to The Neighborhood. We found the quality of products used in the building and decorating of our home to be of higher quality than other homes we considered. Overall, we would not hesitate to recommend Neighborhood Builders to a friend or to do business with them again.

Jen and Tad A,

Ankeny, Iowa

We first chose to call The Neighborhood Builders after seeing the Neighborhood at 86th (in Johnston). We love the variety of that work and wanted a 'different' house. We designed our own and then worked with an architect (through TNB) to get it right. That process went so smoothly. I loved being able to correspond through email, as well as via phone. I was impressed from the start with Jake Ried. He walked through every step of the process throughout the year (planning to completion) that it took. Always returning my calls and emails and doing a great job making things run smoothly. He was so willing to work with us and help us figure out what we could afford. Jennifer Ried has also been fabulous to work with. She is great at working with the contractors and making sure all of the final touches were done. She will keep you on task and I think you'll find her guidance invaluable.

The Neighborhood Builders completed our new home in June 2008. This was only our second home and first to build. One year later, I would still absolutely not hesitate to recommend them as your next builder. In fact, if you've met me, you've probably heard me say you should hire them if you're going to build. I am very proud to tell people that The Neighborhood Builders built our home, and I am also proud to call Jake and Jennifer personal friends to this day.
