What Customers are Saying About Our Custom Homes

"I would like to take this opportunity to tell you directly about my experiences that I have had with your staff over the past couple of weeks.

Firstly I want to say that Jon at the Arabi plant was a GREAT help and most assistive with the questions I had about the Nationwide process and in particular our first house.

Secondly John on the set crew was the most professional and efficient person that I have dealt with with what he has to do in a very short time frame.

Your PRO SET PLUS crew that did our home should be VERY highly commended. The efficiency and co-operation by John and his staff was absolutely beyond reproach. They did their jobs quickly, effectively, neatly AND cleaned up after themselves. Any builder that does NOT utilize your PRO SET PLUS program is making a HUGE mistake.

Your staff at Martinsville have literally bent over backwards to help us get the best design and functionality out of our houses. This has lead us to the present position of having SIX hot prospects for new and existing home owners as potential home buyers at HUNLEY WATERS.

In summation Nationwide Custom Homes has been a pleasure to work with. Thank you and your staff for all that you do."
