Angle's List Review
"HUGE success! The Meyer crew's patience, attention to detail, emphasis on quality, and flexibility throughout the project made what could have/SHOULD have been a very painful process a very enjoyable one. I loved that they were willing to listen to our ideas and help us balance the design side of things with the functional side (but never in a condescending way and always with the perspective that they would and could do it however we wanted). I loved that they communicated with us throughout the project regarding schedule, who would be arriving next and when to expect them, and regarding changes to the budget as we made changes to the project. I loved that they cleaned up at the end of each day so that, although we were living in a work zone, it didn't feel quite as much like one at night. I loved that they really know all of their subs and that they worked with the same standards and professionalism that the Meyer crew does. I loved that when the inevitable small things came up that needed a second look or a touch-up, etc., they didn't hesitate to make it right. If only they did all of this great stuff for free, I PROMISE you we would have them working at our household everyday to implement the many ideas we have for our home. But, rest assured, we feel every dollar spent on this project was a dollar well spent. We highly recommend Meyer Brothers & Sons and are looking forward to our next project with them."
We have moved into our new home and love it! The great patio view, the openness and ﬂow inside the home make this house so very comfortable. This house is well constructed and looks fabulous.
We wanted to write this note of thanks to you and your team. Too often in our world, people are quick to criticize and to ﬁnd the negative side of people and things. Compliments and commendations of good work are not given as often as they should be to good people. Good thoughts and comments bolster the soul and keep people working hard and effectively.....someone notices a job well done and says so. It is important to Bob and to me that we recognize the good work done by you and your staff and to tell you so in writing! We thought it was well worth our time to compose a thoughtful and sincere letter to you.
Dick, it was a real pleasure to work with you and your guys. From the ﬁrst day we met, we liked everyone working at and for Meyer Brothers and Sons. We found them to be skilled and hard working. They were also outgoing, friendly, and helped us feel comfortable and welcome on the construction site. We will never forget you, Jarl, Greg, Luke, Drew, Rick, Jerry, the rooftop Christmas tree, the Angel on the door, and the bouquet of ﬂowers. It was important to us to have a positive relationship with our builder and his team and we did! Some good natured teasing and bantering took place among all of us too. This made for a good work atmosphere and one in which Bob and I appreciated and enjoyed. We always felt comfortable asking any member of your team a question or to ask for an explanation. No one talked down to us or disrespected us.
Building a new home requires a huge team of talented individuals. Meyer Brothers and Sons has just that, a knowledgeable and skilled group of dedicated men. It was clear to us from the beginning that these men liked and respected you and each other.
Everyone provided us with top quality workmanship and behaved professionally on the job site. You kept the project on schedule as best you could and provided us with a quality built home. Thank you. It was also good to have calm and direct conversations with you about a variety of topics. We appreciated the fact that you did not shy away from or ignore difﬁcult, but necessary conversations. It doesn't sound like a big deal, but it was huge and important. We were fortunate to have your company build our home. We both feel that we have not only developed a strong professional relationship with you and your team, but a strong personal bond that will continue.
We are glad our paths have crossed. Thanks again.
