Client Testimonials

  • Having built several homes over the last 30 years, I know how hard it can be to find a good builder. When we built our last home about 3 1/2 years ago we feel very fortunate to have found Vanguard homes. Three words come to mind in our dealings with Owner Mark Long and his team: Honesty, Integrity and Quality. Mark brings a wealth of knowledge to the industry and knows what the customer wants. The sales team headed up by Sales Manager Kelly and Sales Coordinator Annette are very professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We established a great work rapport with Mark, Kelly, and Annette and remain good friends to this day

    We received a quality home with many standard features that other builders charge extra for. Our warranty experience after the sale has been excellent. This is an area that many builders are not committed to seeing through. Not with Vanguard. The few minor issues that we had were taken care of promptly and efficiently. We highly recommend Vanguard for anyone considering purchasing a new home.

  • "My name is Carol and my husband Chuck and I bought a house from Mark Long of Vanguard Homes this year. We looked in several subdivisions and met with several builders and after that I felt that he would be the best to work with and build me a quality home and I was not wrong. We had specific needs and wants for our home and Mark got his architect to work with us and we came up with a basic floor plan that got tweeked along the way until it was just right.

    We were living in Florida so we were not around the whole time to see if anything else needed to be changed but Mark was here and changed things that he saw needed to be improved on. When I got here towards the end of the building process and saw a couple of things that I wanted changed (it is hard to envision things just on paper) Mark had not problem changing things. He said whatever it takes to put a smile on my face. We love our house and it is built with quality and is well insulated and energy efficient. I HIGHLY recommend Mark Long with Vanguard Homes."

  • Choosing to build my dream home was the biggest decision that I have ever made. I looked around at a few builders and it was an easy decision going with Vanguard Homes. Your professionalism and quality of workmanship was far above my expectations. Everyone who had a hand in the process from sales, to plans, to financing, to construction and the finishing touches was friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and wants.

    I am extremely happy with the outcome! My home is everything I wanted and more! I would recommend Vanguard Homes to anyone who is looking for a quality built house constructed by a caring group of people who truly make a house a home. You made me feel as though I was family through the entire process. I want to thank you for a great experience, for a quality product and taking care of me. I am so fortunate to have had such honest, sincere and dedicated professionals building my home. It is refreshing to see a company with such good people and ethics. Thank you for treating me right. I am forever grateful!"

The location of Gold Hill Mesa is perfect for us being so close to downtown and bear Creek park with many trails and open space. We appreciate vanguard homes construction with 2 x 6 exterior walls and a 95% energy efficient furnace with a variable speed motor. Our utility bills are considerably lower than with our previous house. Vanguards follow up process with their Home owners warranty has been most pleasant, and completed in a timely manner.
