Hallmark Homes happy Homeowners

At Hallmark Homes, we take great pride in making sure that our homeowners are happy.  From the unique approach that we take on our selections process to the extraordinary craftsmanship of our partners, everything pointing to an enjoyable experience for our homeowners and a home that they can be proud of.  Even after the home is complete and we hand the homeowner the keys, we stay in touch with the homeowner to make sure that everything is as expected.  We really want homeowners for life.

That last paragraph sounds like we are tooting our own horn a bit.  That’s not the point of this blogpost at all.  In fact, we realize that it’s easy to say all kinds of nice things about yourself.  But what really counts to us is what our homeowners say about us.  It’s our commitment to our homeowners that makes Hallmark Homes one of the premier custom home builders in the Boise area.

Posted below are some of the comments that we have received from our happy homeowners.  :

We purchased a home in Paramount subdivision in Meridian, Idaho in April 2014. We had an opportunity to watch the progress as the house was being constructed and add our input to finishes, colors, flooring, appliances, and upgrades that we wanted incorporated in the house. It was very convenient to do this on a website that was provided specifically for our house by the builder. I thought this was a fast convenient way to communicate with the builder so there were no errors. We are very happy with the completed product. It is a great single story floor plan on a spacious corner lot. The house is well constructed, in an excellent subdivision, with great schools an amenities close by. The finished house has terrific curb appeal and is a very enjoyable house in which to live. There are always a few things that need to be tweaked and Hallmark Homes and Brandon (superintendent) have been very accommodating to any follow up requests. I would gladly recommend Hallmark Homes to anyone considering purchasing a home in Idaho.

This is the second home that I have had built but the first one where I actually enjoyed working with the builder. Brad is great to work with. He keeps you up to speed on how the project is going and is always happy to be flexible and able to prevent surprises, including financial. He had no problem keeping us on track with the budget and helped us to make decisions that would work best for our needs. His subcontractors are all excellent craftsman and friendly individuals. Larry (tile) assisted us in making tile decisions when our first choice looked bad. His opinion helped us to feel more comfortable with our fix before it became more permanent. The painter prevented us from making a big mistake by combining two colors that would have looked horrid together by making sure we understood our combination before the paint was purchased. We have just celebrated our one year anniversary in our new home. Our warranty list was small and minor (unlike our last home) but Brad and Brandon were on it and resolved the items rapidly and with excellent results. I can’t say enough good things about Brad and his team. There is still integrity in the field of builders. Thank you Hallmark, we love our home! The Cecil Family Forgot to mention that Brad and his team were finished nearly a month ahead of schedule on a winter build.

Working with Hallmark Homes to build our home was a wonderful experience. Brad and his team were amazing to work with. They were professional, personable and very responsive to our needs and questions along the way. Our house is beautiful and we plan to live there for a very long time. Building a home is, at times, a very stressful endeavor. However, whenever we had questions or wanted to address something regarding our house, Brad and his team were there to talk us through the process. If we needed to meet at the house to discuss something, either Brad or his Foreman would meet us there (usually the same day). Although I know ours wasn’t the only house they were building, it always felt like we were their top priority. One of the things that really helped make the process enjoyable was the attitude of the contractors. Every time that we went to the house to see how things were coming along, if someone was working they were always friendly. If we had questions, they were always happy to answer them. We never felt that we were getting in the way, even though I’m sure sometimes we were. Another thing that made an impression on me was the cleanliness of the worksite. No matter what the stage in the building process, the site was always in order. We walked through a lot of other houses being built in our neighborhood, and the pride that the entire Hallmark team took in their work was very evident. Our house was completed on schedule (in fact it was completed a little early). And the service after we closed has been outstanding. The few times that we have had to call them regarding minor issues they have been very responsive. It still feels like we are a top priority. I would absolutely recommend Hallmark Homes to anyone looking to build a home.

I had hear horror stories of building a new home and all the problems that come with it. Hallmark Homes proved them all to be rumors (at least in their case). They were very transparent during the build process and communicated with me closely to make sure my dream home was being built to my satisfaction. If I had a change or questions they responded quickly and provided me with informative choices to make my home fit my needs. There were no surprises in what finishes or materials they provided. When you walk through their model homes, what you see is what you will get. I couldn’t be happier and have enjoyed working with Hallmark Homes and all associated with them.

When I moved to Idaho I had such a hard time finding a move-in ready home and I didn’t want to build; that is until I walked into a Hallmark Home. Thirty minutes later I was signing papers. The floor plan is unique, stylish and functional. There is attention to detail and a selection list of great choices. Five months later I am enjoying my new home and neighborhood; and so glad I made the decision to build with Hallmark.

Outstanding Builder! My family and I recently moved from Southern California to escape the craziness! We fell in love with the single story “Hallmark” model from Hallmark Homes as soon as we walked through the door! The attention to detail and all of the INCLUDED UPGRADES are what makes Hallmark Homes #1 in our book. We love the luxurious look and feel that Brad has designed. Our friends and family compliment us on our new home every time they visit. Brad and his team made it easy to successfully build our dream home from afar. The online system he uses for making custom selections, confirming dates and prices, and most importantly communicating was easy to use and helped us stay on track for selection deadlines. My In-Laws also built a home but with another builder in the area and I have to say, their experience was much different. Everyone on the Hallmark team was very flexible with meeting dates, closing walk-troughs, etc. This made things a lot easier when trying to coordinate from over 800 miles away. Brad and his team at Hallmark Homes consistently exceed our expectations! They not only built us a new house, but have created a home for our family to make wonderful memories for years to come.

I would highly recommend Hallmark Homes to anyone ready to embrace the adventure of building a new home. Brad and his team were friendly, professional and hard working. They built a beautiful, high quality home for our family and it was a joy to communicate and work with them throughout the process.

For anyone looking for a smooth and amazing experience in the home building process contact Hallmark Homes. My family and I just finished building our new house from Hallmark Homes. Brad and the rest of the staff are some of the best people I’ve worked with. Their vendors are professional and easy to deal with, and the results are amazing. Building a home with Hallmark Homes was one of the best decisions we have made.

We can’t thank Brad and Hallmark Homes enough, we absolutely love our new house. Thank you Brad!

My husband and I recently purchased a Hallmark Home. We are so thrilled to be living in this beautiful and well crafted home. Brad Dildine and his team of sub contractors have built a home that is suited for the comfort and livability of the family. The molding and wainscoting is beautiful and certainly adds to the charm of the home. not only has Hallmark built us a lovely home but they stand by their product and are Johnny on the spot to fix any needs or repairs. To me that shows great integrity on the part of Hallmark Homes and its owner, Brad Dildine. If you are searching for a builder then I highly recommend Hallmark Homes.
