Here are some of the comments we’ve received from our great group of customers, just in the past year or so. This gives a flavor of how your building experience might go when you build a new home with Jeff Horwath Family Builders.
“We love our home and couldn’t be happier with you and your team. Have a great day! Thanks, Jeff!”
(Returned to have their lower level finished.)
Jennifer and Frank G. New Berlin
“Our Horwath Construction Team did a fantastic job throughout our building process! We had heard great things about your company and your excellent reputation and loved your Meadowridge model. We also had a fantastic experience! Your carpenters framing our house were an impressive group. Your painters were amazing. Countertop people, Julie was great to work with. Ariel from lighting supplier was very helpful. Appliance supplier was great. Nina was outstanding and very knowledgeable and helped us stay within budget, and our tile installer was also top notch. We gave a 10 to your Office Staff, Construction Manager and the Plan Design & Price! Your masons, framers, siders, plumbers, hvac, insulators, drywallers, fireplace, finish carpentry, painters, appliance, lighting, flooring people were also all a 10. We would definitely recommend you – thank you for building our dream house!”
Jeff & Kaylee B. Hartland
“Despite the supply issues and all of the challenges through the pandemic e could not have chosen a better, more suitable builder to work with. We are beyond satisfied with our dream home. We truly feel we have become part of the Horwath family through this process. Chris, our Horwath Construction Manager, made himself very available and went above and beyond. He was excellent from day one, very patient and understanding. He took the time to explain the process for us at each step. We loved your office staff. Your sider did amazing work. Finish carpenters were phenomenal. Painter was awesome and communicated well. All of your crews were very polite and professional!”
Shane and Gina H. Hubertus
“I am so excited for the closing! This is by far my favorite home, out of the three we’ve built with you, and hopefully our last, LOL!! Another spectacular home built by Horwath Family Builders. I must compliment all of the subs as each and everyone of them have been exceptional to work with. Their craftsmanship is top notch!! As for Mike Grass, Mike and I were very lucky to have him as our expeditor on this project. He has done a fabulous job and so very well organized. Last but not least, all of you ladies in the office are amazing. I do not know how you keep up with everything that comes your way but there was never a time you made me feel like any question was not important and answered it quickly or found a way to solve the problem. THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I truly appreciate what you do.”
Beth & Mike K. New Berlin
” Hi Jeff, We are so freaking excited for the finished product and that day that you put the keys in our hands. We know this is a massive project. We are living in some uncertain times for sure. One thing is very clear, Gina and I are very blessed and fortunate that we have the “Horwath team” on our side throughout. We could not imagine going through this with any other builder. We have faith that everything happens for a reason and when the time is right, our dream home will be ready and provide years of memories for our family. Thank you for your continued excellence and can’t wait for our future home to officially join in the Horwath history books!!! “
Shane & Gina H. Richfield
“Hi Jeff, Thanks so much for the letter with updates. We have had an amazing experience so far and Chris has been a great communicator. He has gone above and beyond on everything! Seriously. We could not have asked for a better experience.”
Cathy and Matt D. Lisbon
“We’re very happy. We loved our Construction Manager Pat, and Autumn, Mary, Jeff – everyone. We wanted a builder we could trust and knew from day one that you were that builder. All of your subs were very nice, and your painter was really good.”
Brian & Jasmine O. Richfield
“We’re confident that we have a home with much higher quality than other new houses. All of your subcontractors and suppliers proved that to be true.”
Dave & Kelsey S. Delafield
“I am not sure where to even begin in expressing my gratitude and satisfaction throughout this entire building process. When I met Jeff, I knew right away he would be our builder. He took the time to meet with me when we didn’t even have a lot picked out. Right away, he was someone we could trust. We knew he had a great reputation and built high-quality homes, but we didn’t know if he would be in our budget. I learned that he can be in anyone’s budget and is very fairly priced, especially for the quality you receive as his customer. He also makes you feel like your house is priority no matter the size.
When we started to design our home, Jeff took a ton of time meeting with us, answering my ridiculous amount of emails almost immediately, and never once made me feel like I was bothering him. Jeff and his staff are caring, timely, and very knowledgeable. There was never once a time where I was waiting long for an answer or response which goes a long way. Jeff is also very personable, and we enjoyed each time we got to meet with him in person. He is probably one of the busiest people imaginable, but he never rushes you and truly takes the time to make sure everything is correct and that you are satisfied. Plus, he has some funny jokes and is just fun to be around. Everyone that works for Jeff is also amazing, helpful, and accommodating to their customer’s needs. Mary is so kind, organized and prompt. Autumn has great taste and helped bring creative ideas to life. Jeff L, our Construction Manager was very flexible, easy and a pleasure to work with and we appreciate his weekly updates.
Everything in our home came together so nicely and we could not love our home anymore! It is all thanks to Jeff and everyone at Horwath Family Builders. We truly feel like we are a part of Horwath Family Builders and everyone makes you feel like you are family before, during and after the building process. We cannot recommend them enough – you will not be disappointed!”
Katherine and Brad J. Colgate
“Overall, we had a great experience. Excellent communication throughout the process. ‘Would highly recommend!
Our Construction Manager did an outstanding job. We have built before and this was a completely different experience. Great communication and follow-up. The Specification & Pricing process was very detailed. We gave all of your people and your subcontractors/suppliers very high scores. We especially enjoyed working with your lighting, appliance, cabinet and flooring suppliers. Your electricians are great. Cabinets are excellent. Your painter was very thorough and reached out to us as needed.”
Rebecca and Patrick C. Brookfield
“We had an excellent experience. Our Construction Manager, Pat, was excellent. He was good at understanding stuff and communicated well. We really liked his weekly updates. He was on top of things all the time and knew the answers to our questions. Mary was wonderful – we couldn’t do without her. Autumn really helped us make good design choices, because that’s not our strong point and she made it easy for us. Our finish carpenters and painters were really great. Josh, who did our closets, was really helpful. We were able to make all of our lighting selections on line and Ariel was very helpful. Tony, our roofer, did a wonderful job and we give all the Horwath mechanical guys were top marks also.”
Dave & Beth V. Delafield
“All your people were excellent. Your subcontractors and suppliers are exceptional. Glen, our Field Manager, was excellent. He took the bull by the horns to bring our home together very nicely. Your septic people, rough carpenters, masons, excavator – all excellent. Our elevator turned out excellent as well. We had all tile floors and your installers were very, very good. Your finish carpenters were excellent, and so were the plumbers and electrician. We especially liked that your electrician took the time to walk through the entire house with us to make sure we liked where everything was located. We’re very happy with how it all turned out.”
Bob & Jami R. Eagle
“Our Horwath Construction Manager was super-nice – he’s great. We looked forward to his weekly updates. Really, it couldn’t have been better. Our favorite contractors/suppliers were your cabinet people, your carpet installers, painters and finish carpenters.”
Dave & Katie L. Lisbon
“Our experience was 99.9% perfect – thank you! Your Office Staff, Autumn, Mary, Holly & Jane were a 10. Your jobsite managers were a 10 at expediting, cleanliness, attention to detail, helpful, honest and doing walk-through’s with us. The sales & design process was a 10 also. We gave all your workers top scores and especially loved your closet people, carpenters, masons, siding guys, plumbers, electricians, drywallers, cabinet, finish carpentry, painting and fireplace people.”
Frank & Jennifer G., New Berlin
“Hi Jeff! Well, I don’t know what to say, other than, I love my Horwath home! Thanks so much for working with us to get everything that we needed and wanted to squeeze into our budget. I’m not sure if you remember walking the vacant lot with me before we bought it, but I remember it vividly. It was so much fun for me to walk the land and discuss ideas with you. Thanks so much!”
Jen & Paul S, Brookfield
“DeDe and I want to compliment you for building a home for us that we believe is the most attractive home in our large subdivision, especially when it is viewed from the walking paths behind our home. The back view of the Horwath home stands out more than any home we have seen. It is truly an example of the quality of design for the front and rear of our Horwath home.”
Ralph & DeDe Oconomowoc
“You spoiled me from the last time we built. You set the bar so high, that I wouldn’t consider building with anyone else!”
Carrie O, Brookfield
“We loved working with you guys. It was an incredible experience. You got to know us right away and truly listened to us and were transparent and helped us stay within our budget. We thought everyone was excellent and tell all our friends about you. We gave all of your staff and all of your subs and suppliers a 10!”
Doug & Marlee E, Lisbon
“Our experience with Jeff, Julie, Laura and staff was wonderful – you’re all very patient, nice and experienced. Jeff, you really saved the day helping us transition from our first siding choice to what we have now. We couldn’t be happier with our stone front and shake siding. The design process was truly a collaboration. We appreciate Jeff’s design-ability and insightfulness. Your roofer was phenomenal, your electricians, finish carpenters and painters were especially outstanding. The tile guys did a really nice job. We gave a 10 to just about all of your team, subs and suppliers. You build a quality, custom-built home and we’re very pleased with the end result. We won’t hesitate to recommend you to family and friends. Thank you all for our beautiful home!
Bruce & Kathy B, Chenequa
“From our first meeting in Jeff’s office to today’s closing in Jeff’s office, Sharon and I truly appreciate your guidance, patience and professionalism throughout the journey to building our third and final new home. Many things have changed since we last built 35 years ago. Your process is much more thorough and engaging. Following your lead, Sharon and I became immersed in the process as you skillfully passed the baton to the next in line. We were pleasantly surprised on many occasions by you and your army of subcontractors and suppliers who guided us through the process. At every step along the way, we felt that someone was always looking out for our best interests. In our opinion, all of you and all of your partners performed above expectations.
All in all, building with Jeff Horwath Family Builders was a pleasant and enjoyable experience. We’re very proud of our new home and have received many favorable comments from family, friends, future neighbors and a few passersby who have seen what evolved outside and inside. We look forward to being a part of the extended JHFB family of satisfied customers for many years. Keep doing what you do so well individually and collectively as a team. All the best for continued success”
“We are LOVING the entire building process with you and all your networks – fabulous individuals to communicate with and quality relationships in the making (in spite of winter shenanigans)! Couldn’t be more happy or impressed with all your ‘crews’ – from Brian to the carpenters, from flooring to appliances, from plumbing to electric – all exemplary folks. We thank you for the strong foundations you have fostered in your company that get passed on to families like ours.
May God continue to bless you and yours in abundance!”
Paul and Cheryl L, Brookfield
“Glen just stopped by our house to help us… Really appreciate that he got back to us today after he learned of our issue… your people are so helpful. Makes a difference to us!”
Julie & Paul M, Sussex
“Our experience was very good. The communication was phenomenal, absolutely outstanding. Your team was very accommodating – everyone was awesome! They were patient and explained everything. Everyday we were out at our house, something was happening and more was done.”
Rich & Lisa V. Richfield
“We have an absolutely beautiful home and are excited to move in. It’s awesome – we can’t believe it’s our house. Your rough framing crew was super nice and informative. Everybody at your company was friendly, nice and helpful.”
Paul & Melissa D. Mukwonago
“Morning Jeff, I just wanted to give you a big special thank you for having Glen come out and help out yesterday. He was absolutely relentless in helping me. You are certainly blessed to have him as your Quality & Service Manager – he’s an incredible guy. So, we can’t thank you enough – it’s been eight years since we built with you guys and you certainly didn’t have to do anything for us, so I recommend your company to everybody we meet. Thanks again, and God Bless you.”
Steve & Sue H. Mukwonago
“We have been in our new home for almost 2 months and with a “combined” family have never felt we had a real home for us. With all of your help, you designed a “forever” home for us. We could not be more grateful for what you all have done for us!! We are truly blessed to have found such caring people that made us feel like family. …our Construction Manager, Jeff L’s communication, dedication and promptness were superior – he’s a diamond in the rough. Your staff were incredibly responsive and polite – very professional and helpful. It was the exact house we needed. Your design ability and responsiveness were tremendous!”
Jim & Kari P. Elm Grove
“Jeff, we showed one of your existing homes to our real estate client who had looked at dozens of other homes to purchase. Your Horwath home is absolutely gorgeous, and puts all of the others to shame!”
“ I need to tell you that you and your team have helped put a smile on our faces everyday since last August. We are incredibly grateful for your support and priceless expertise in building our home.”
Kristi & Derek O. Franklin
“We officially closed today with and couldn’t be happier with the service and quality that we got from you and your team. The urgency, attention to detail, responsiveness and care that we got from everyone was above and beyond. We are so excited to start our little family in the beautiful home you built for us. Thank you very much for everything! We were blessed to have you as a builder. All the Best”
Emily and Craig P. Pewaukee
“Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! No wonder you’re called “family” builders, because you guys feel like family to us. Julie and Laura were the absolute BEST! Scott & Glen were great! And we LOVE you, Jeff!!! Absolutely wonderful! From start to finish, everything was great and so much fun! We will miss you all so much!”
Nate & Fallon S. Brookfield
“We had such a great experience with you all. We absolutely LOVE our home and are so happy with how everything turned out. We can’t thank you enough! “
Jeremy & Afton B. Delafield
“Everybody in your organization, and all of your subs were a 10, except your painters were a 12! Your carpenters were awesome too!”
Jeff & Kim J. Merton
“Our experience overall was excellent. Being the first home…we are thrilled with the final product. Your subs are amazing! Thank you for everything!”
Greg & Carri O. Hartland
“Your team really cared and acted like it was their own home. They gave us suggestions that we didn’t see, and we thought that was impressive. The guys working on our house really knew their stuff, and were fun to be around. The communication was great, and people did what they said they’d do. Our weekly updates from Jeff, our Construction Manager were great. We were also impressed with the nice Horwath discounts we received from the vendors; they compared very favorably vs. the internet, and we received professional selection advice, service, delivery, set-up, warranty and support that we couldn’t get from the internet. Their advice was invaluable. Friends saw pictures of our house and thought it was a show model from a magazine, because it looked so perfect! All the little details mean so much and we loved the quality. You did an unbelievable job and we couldn’t be happier!”
Todd & Monica M Jackson
A common remark I heard from many of the subs was how much they enjoyed working on Horwath homes, and a genuine desire to please the customer. They all have ben very courteous and professional. I am very proud to be a new owner of a Horwath home and will be eager to share our experience with all that ask.”
Steve & Mira H North Prairie
“We can’t get over how amazing the house is, Jeff!”
Nate & Fallons S. Brookfield
“I’m almost sad we are finished building. You are all wonderful. You make building stress-free. I cannot say enough about the entire company. Thank you!”
Kate & Tyler L. Mequon
“So great to hear from you–I hope you are doing well. Everyday, it amazes me, I say how much I love this house! It turned out very well inside and out.”
Ann and Dave K. Menomonee Falls
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. We appreciate your help along the way and your quick response to any questions we had. Thanks!”
Mike & Denise P. Menomonee Falls
“We love our Jeff Horwath home !! Many guests have told us our home is the highest quality home they have ever seen.”
Kelley B. Hartland
“Our building experience was perfect! This is our 4th time building, first time custom – the way to go! Fun, stress-free, highest quality, great people. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Scott thru the entire process! We relied on his experience and expertise often and we appreciated his opinions. Laura and Julie are the greatest! They took all the stress out of the process We can’t thank them enough – such a wonderful company.”
Brent & Benida K. Delafield
“Just wanted to share with you that we went out to the house after work and were just blown away with the changes on the house! The color is gorgeous. It is so beautiful! We love love love the look! Thanks so much!”
Elizabeth and Doug F. Richfield
“Jeff L, our Construction Manager, did a great job of providing clear explanations when we need them. He is tremendously knowledgeable; he was a great source of information to us. He consistently demonstrated a great deal of honesty and integrity. Jeff was wonderful at keeping us very well informed every step of the way and making himself available to us, as needed. It was a pleasure to work with such a personable and considerate professional. Laura was always enthusiastic, pleasant, and professional. We found her “eye for color” and her experience in making all the selections work together, to be a tremendous asset! Laura’s help in making selections took all the fear out of building our first home and made it enjoyable & exciting for us. I loved Laura’s candid, organized, and straightforward approach. Every one that worked with us was consistently professional, respectful and eager to help. It is obvious that great care was taken in selecting the best team to build our home. The actions of the entire Horwath team reflected quality, dependability, honesty and integrity. The most satisfaction we got in working with everyone during our building process was that we could cound on the fact that you wouldn’t overpromise, or underperform. You exceeded our expectations every step of the way!…Thank you!”
Kris and Chuck F, Menomonee Falls
“Thanks again for all your attention to detail…we are very pleased to say we built a Jeff Horwath home. We will most definitely tell everyone we know about the positive experiences we have had with you and everyone else who helps build a Horwath home!”
AnnMarie and Eric H, Brookfield
“Hi Jeff, Thanks again for your support during the Filipino Association’s Fundraising Gala. It was quite a successful evening and we raised a lot of funds for the Free Medical Clinic…My kids are almost graduating from High School and they keep telling us that the best thing they love about moving to Milwaukee is the house that we built with you and your team. They/we have had many wonderful memories in it with our family and friends from sleepovers to barbecues to numerous birthday parties, Christmas parties etc. Priceless memories indeed and we thank you for that!”
Jo Anne C, Franklin
““I recently have been having an issue with my water heater. It would not fire up. I had to shut it off & restart it in order for it to finally kick back on. Being that it was only 7 years old, I reached out to Scott who was our point of contact when we built 7 years ago. I am very pleased and impressed by the professionalism & prompt return of my call by Scott. He called me back, and provided me some feedback about checking the vent for bird nests that may have caused the issue. When I checked it out, the vent did in fact have a bird nest obstruction in it. Since I have cleared out the birds nest, I have had no issues with the water heater. I thought it important that I reach out to you to commend Scott for his outstanding customer service. We have enjoyed our home over the last 7 years, and with the outstanding customer service provided by Scott, we would certainly recommend your company to friends, and use your company again if we decide to build in the future.”
Chris & Barb K, Sussex
“I’m almost “sad” we are finished building. You are all wonderful. You make building stress-free. I cannot say enough about the entire company. Thank you!
Kate & Tyler L., Mequon
“Outstanding, I’ve built 3 homes and this is the first time I felt like my wants/needs regarding the home were important. I would 100% build with Jeff Horwath again!! You did everything you could to make the home build a hugely positive experience!! Every single person who’s seen it absolutely loves it. I have not had any problems at all, and Glen did an outstanding job – he’s followed up a few times also, to make sure everything is going well. The quality of your contractors is Top Notch. They were very helpful and made the selection process easier. Extremely well done, Jeff and Staff.
Jeff S., Hubertus
“Good Morning Jeff, I hope this finds you doing well. Brian and I wanted to send a note regarding Glen, your service manager. Glen has been an amazing resource to work with. He is meticulous in approaching the issue. He is always positive and is certainly customer service focused. He represents Horwath Famiily Builders very well and we are very appreciative for all he does. Thanks much!”
Becky and Brian M, Hartland
THIS IS A SPECIAL NOTE WE RECEIVED.
My wife, Paula, and I have the privilege of watching one of your new homes being constructed adjacent to our home…and it has been very enjoyable to see and talk with them through the process of lot purchase and now the construction of their new home. Paula and I wish to say thanks to you for having a number of very considerate subcontractors who are most cognizant of cleaning the worksite and getting debris, etc. into the dumpster, especially when the wind has blown things out. The new home has been fun to watch and having had some issues with our builder, your people and subs obviously take great pride in the product they put forth. I wish we would have talked with you a couple of years ago. Keep up the good work; the home is beautiful.
Roger D, Mequon
“The house looks absolutely beautiful. Corey and Brandon (finish carpenters) are experts in their field and take great care in their work. Not to mention, they’re so nice! Also, I was happy to see Mike and Tim again; I have no idea how they can place tile using such precision. They are perfectionists at their job! We are having an incredible experience building our home. I feel like Jim, our Construction Manager, is family and I’m so happy to know him. I talk to him just as much as I talk to my mom! Laura and Julie at the office, give the most helpful advice and it’s always great to talk with them. Thanks, Jeff!”
Judy & Brian P. Mequon
“So great to hear from you–I hope you are doing well. Everyday, it amazes me, I say how much I love this house! It turned out very well inside and out.”
Ann and Dave K. Menomonee Falls
Jasmeet, Simmi, and I just wanted to thank you for all that you and your wonderful staff did for us. It was a dream that has been converted into a reality for us with our new home and we thank you. We can’t wait to move in. I appreciate your patience as well as every one else’s. I also wanted to mention that i think Scott, our Construction Manager, did a great job. And, we wanted to make a special note about Laura’s major contribution for us for our home. She helped us tremendously in getting over the hump of selections…..one of the best feelings we had was after the day she came out to the house and met Jasmeet to power through all the paint selections……everything seemed to get easy from there on. Anyways, I could go on and on, but I think you get the point. I’m glad we chose you as our builder as the whole experience was done first class. We look forward to working with you in the future when the time comes for the basement.
We had a great time working with you and your team. I think part of you being so good at what you do is the relations that you build with your clients at a personal level. I think the best way I can put our satisfaction working with you and your team in words is by saying we wouldn’t think twice about coming back to you if and when we build again. Thanks for everything and keep in touch.
Jaspreet & Jasmeet S., Brookfield
“Andrea and I just wanted to take a minute to let all of you know that we’re loving our Horwath home. We really appreciate all everyone has done to make the building experience a terrific one! We notice lots of traffic driving by slowly to look at the house, and a few have even taken some pictures of it. We feel blessed to have such a nice home….Please share our thanks with all at the office!”
“We had an excellent building experience and would recommend Jeff Horwath Family Builders without hesitation! Thank you!“

The lower level came out absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait to start using it! Everything went very smoothly and working with all your contractors was headache-free. Thanks for making the whole project pain free. You, your team, and all your subcontractors are really top notch.
See you soon,
Djerrick & Ria T. Brookfield.
Brad and I wish to express our sincere gratitude to you and your entire staff for the absolutely wonderful experience we had during the process of remodeling our basement.
From the very beginning when we first met you, Jeff, you came over on several occasions and took the time with us to help design the perfect, I repeat perfect, lower level. Julie and Laura without both of you, we would have been totally lost with our selections. Your guidance and kindness throughout this entire process is so very much appreciated. Scott – where do we begin? You played such a huge role in the success of our basement. Absolutely anything that we needed, you were there for us and made sure it got done. Trust is such an important thing in life and you proved to be so trustworthy and then some. We thank you for the respect that you gave to us and our home.
Our gratitude to the sub-contractors. They were all great to work with, were very respectful and courteous and their quality of work was superb. The level of service that we received from all of you is nothing short of exemplary. You displayed such professionalism, courtesy and kindness. You gave us peace of mind and created a trust that was very important. Your team constantly followed up with everything to make sure it was done correctly.
While we are so very glad that the basement is finished and we can now enjoy it, there is a certain amount of sadness that goes along with that. We will miss talking to you all and not seeing anyone anymore!! It will be kind of lonely around the house for awhile!!
There is no doubt in our minds that we would recommend Jeff Horwath Builders to anyone and everyone that asks. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make one of our dreams come true. God Bless you all.
