“Dear Belman Homes,
Hello, We’d like to share our Belman Homes building experience with you. We’ve been in our Cedarwood II home for 3 months now, and we are pleased to tell you Belman Homes has built us a beautiful, high quality home, just as we envisioned it. How many people do you know can say that about their builder? We can say that about Belman Homes. They know their business and that means you can relax with confidence that you will have a beautiful, high quality home.
We chose Belman Homes carefully, as this is the biggest investment most people make in their lifetimes. We started with a clear vision of the main features we wanted in our new home. We then began doing our homework, looking deeper, beyond the aesthetics to the builder’s workmanship, track record, what their crews say about them, and the experiences of other customers (not just those on the reference list provided!). What kind of quality really goes in to your new home? We narrowed it down to (4) builders with (4) similar models and then really looked deeper. We walked through homes under construction, carefully looking at fit and detail; we talked to builder’s crews, we talked to the local building inspector, and we carefully used our own good, solid judgment and instincts. We checked out Belman Homes thoroughly before we started.

To those looking to build,

Of the (4) builders we qualified (all in the top 10 of the “Milwaukee Magazine” survey), the Don Belman home was the higher quality, better value home, with higher quality components in every criterion. Belman was the most knowledgeable builder we found in the industry! They were not just a little better than the competition; they had a wealth of information learned through growing up in this business. He listened to us intently, provided solutions, knew cost pricing, and had good money-saving ideas for all of our questions right on the spot. Beyond the home, he had recommendations for landscaping, driveways just anything we might need. He knows his business, and as part of the ownership, he could make decisions and get things done now. He truly wanted us to be happy with the end result.

Their quality goes beyond Don, and David Belman and staff. We found their crews to be dedicated tradesmen. Our home was handcrafted on site. The electricians, the plumbing crew, the bricklayer who hand built our 18 ft fireplace, and our finish carpenter all these people took extreme pride in producing a quality product. They built our home as if it were their own. Our home was finished on schedule; we had 3 minor change orders during the process, and no cost overruns. Their standard components are top quality: Kohler fixtures, Pella windows, Delta faucets, Jacuzzi whirlpool, Whirlpool appliances, and Lennox heating/cooling systems.

When it was closing time, Bill Schmidt, the Controller, gave up part of his Friday evening to accommodate our work schedule. Great customer service on top of it all!  Belman Homes continues to win Metropolitan Milwaukee and National Association of Home Builder because they produce consistent results for customers for over 20 years.

Belman Homes made us feel like our home was the only one they were building. Would we build with them again? Absolutely! These are people who care about giving their customers the most they can in a new home; and making it a hassle-free process. We can fully recommend Don Belman Homes to you.”

“Dear Belman Homes,
What do I love about our Belman Home?????? That is a really tough question. What is my favorite room???’?? That is even more difficult to answer because I love all the rooms! !!! We especially enjoy the loft, great room and master bath. It is a great home for entertaining!!!
I love the QUALITY of this home. It is evident inside and out!! !!! Our new home is a continual source of pride, joy. peace and happiness! !!! WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT HERE! !!! Everyone who visits our home also comments on the beauty, quality and charm. We tell them that we are extremely satisfied, had no problems with our builder (which is not the case with our friends) and that WE WOULD BUILD WITH DON BELMAN AGAIN if the need would require.
I’m glad you asked I like to tell others about our home!
There were so many builders and their models to look at, and I felt that we looked at them all. BELMAN was the only one where “what you see is what you get”. It was such a pleasure to go through the model with David, see the trim and accessories we wanted, and when I asked “how much extra?”, being told that it’s standard!I wanted a large , comfortable loft and a room for an office easy to work in. Geralyn had a wish list too (jaccuzzi, big kitchen, large master bedroom). BELMAN had a model that met them all! But it didn’t end there. After all the horror stories we heard about building a home, the process with BELMAN was actually a pleasant experience from start to finish. Talk about a smooth, painless transition! Ger and I honestly love this home! We are truly living our dream…and we have a lot of admiring (some jealous) friends who keep telling us just that! This is one solid ,luxurious, beautiful home, inside and out!”

“What can we say about our Don Belman Home? A lot! We originally looked at over 30 homes in Waukesha County before we saw the home we now live in. We fell in love with it the instant we saw it. The birch woodwork and custom cabinetry is absolutely beautiful especially contrasting against the brushed silver fixtures. We were immediately drawn by the open concept layout and by the quality craftsmanship throughout. The design of the rooms is unique and at the same time functional. What sealed the deal, however, was the value for the money. No other builder in Waukesha County offers this quality of home for the price. We have also been extremely happy with the customer service we have received from our expediter after the purchase was made. All in all a very satisfying experience and we love our home.”

“Dear Don,
We are enjoying our new home built by your company. All our friends visiting from and outside Wisconsin admire the wood works and the general look of the house. After looking around different houses at other places, we found this house nice and beautiful. We also heard from many people about the reliability of the houses you build. We are so glad that we chose this house over many choices we had. In fact, we have decided to have you as our builder for our next house in future. Thanks.”

“Mr. Belman,
Having already built two beautiful homes with Belman, our family would not hesitate to do it again! We were able to customize our Cedarwood II model with the assistance of a talented architect, have our questions addressed by experienced sales staff and most of all had an expeditor that went above and beyond the call of duty to help us build our dream home. Having shopped the competition, we firmly believe the home was competitively priced, built with the utmost in quality, and is a home we are extremely proud of.”

“Don Belman homes, inc.,
We built our Don Belman home in 2000 and have lived in it since November of 2000. What we love most about the home is the way in which it was constructed. Everything from the framing of the house using 2×6 construction to the masonry work was of very high quality. We also like the fact that our house was built without a lot of pre-assembled parts being shipped to the site. The framing of the house was literally done using a pile of wood on site. The carpenters were able to build what they needed on site as opposed to bringing in pre-built parts and just nailing them together. The masonry work on our house is outstanding and really accents the rest of the house. We liked the fact that Belman encourages the use of a brick and has a great mason doing the work. Overall, this was the first house that we built and were very satisfied with the end result.”

“Dear David,
Before we were ready to build, we literally had a few years to find just the right builder. During our long search, we looked at just about every builder out there and then when we found Belman Homes. We had almost an instant feeling that we had found the perfect builder for us. We were impressed in the time and patience you had with us in taking us through the process of building our first home.

From our first meetings in your models, to sitting down and altering your design to suit our needs, you were very helpful and informative. Your knowledge helped us design a house that was just what we had been looking for. Our entire construction was ideal. We had heard horror stories from just about everyone about the troubles they had during construction and we can honestly say we didn’t have any problems whatsoever. Gary, our expediter was excellent! He made sure there wasn’t any down time during the process and everything went smoothly. Dave, our finish carpenter was exceptional. We feel he had a lot to do with making our finished house as beautiful as it is. Everyone who visits raves about our beautiful woodwork.

In the end, we feel we got a lot of house for our money and couldn’t have made a better choice in selecting Belman Homes. If we ever decide to build again, we wouldn’t hesitate to calling Belman Homes.”

“Dear Don Belman Homes,
Our first draw to Belman Homes was the quality home you provide for the dollar amount spent with the value added features.

As the framing crew came on-site, our drawings came to life. We were pleased with the continual progress on our home. We visited the building site on a daily basis and saw progress each day. Our girls were thrilled to see their bedrooms and new home take shape. It was an added bonus to have the project completed before scheduled! From the striking exterior of our home, through the custom arches, to the kitchen filled with amenities we are finding our residence to truly be “home”!

Your interior designer was a bonus! She was a delight and enabled us to bring all the details together. We appreciated the professional manner in which your staff responded to our questions, and would recommend Belman Homes to any custom home builder. We felt that we were working together to complete our home.”

“We looked a long time at different builders before we decided to build with Belman Homes. We looked at quality, workmanship and warranty. Don, and David were very helpful from start to finish. We have been in our new house for 1 year now and we truly love our home. This was the first new home we have bought so it was important to us to have everything done and ready to move in. The closing and move in dates were set 2 months prior and as promised, the home was ready for us. We are extremely happy with our choice of builders and look forward to the future when we decide to build again, there will be a call placed to Don Belman. Thanks for helping!”

“Dear Dave,

I am pleased to say we were very satisfied with how the process went and the quality of our Grand Victorian. Overall the team at Belman worked well in making this a positive building experience. Issues that did arise during construction were handled immediately and to our satisfaction.
As we have been decorating we have noticed the quality of the workmanship up close. Standard features of the home such as the oak woodwork and masonry fireplace add much to our decor ideas. Since the picture was taken we have added some wicker furniture and we now are enjoying the summer evenings with family and friends on our great front porch. All we need now is the landscaping.”
