are saying about us:

“Thanks again for all that you’ve done for us and especially the amazing work!  We’ve already gotten so many compliments from neighbors and family and in another year people won’t even remember we had any work done at all and will just think the house always looked that way.  It’s a true compliment to your business.”

Patrick and Julie Robert – Sunset Hills Tapawingo Gulf Estates, Missouri

We could not be more pleased with our new home from Benchmark… They are outstanding professionals, but more importantly, good people. We trust them immensely and would recommend their work to anyone.

“This is the second home we’ve built and the difference (with Benchmark) lies with the close, personal attention. We met face-to-face with them on numerous occasions, and they were always just a phone call or email away. We never found ourselves in the dark. They were extremely proactive in keeping us apprised of the status of our home. The process and final product were so much more pleasant (with Benchmark), that we would not go back to one of the “mass builders” again. The final product is outstanding! The quality of our home is even better than we anticipated. We enjoyed the entire experience tremendously. We would be more than happy to discuss our experience with anyone over the phone, or in person.”

Our home is exactly the way we wanted it! The quality and workmanship is exceptional…

“We are extremely happy with our new home! Benchmark …did a wonderful job on our house…they are very detail oriented, and accommodated all our wants and needs in building our home. Jim and everyone on the construction site were very friendly and helpful. We were informed and updated of the progress all throughout the construction of our house. Every time we heard any news, we got so excited!! It was another step closer to our house being done. When the day finally came, we could not be any happier with the final result! …We highly recommend Benchmark. They take pride in their work and it shows! We have a beautiful house and we absolutely love it!!”

We are extremely pleased with our home, and we’re still friends with the builder!! We strongly recommend Benchmark Homes!! Come and see our beautiful home. It speaks for itself. Excellent craftsmanship and finish work, our crown moulding and trim work is beautiful – it really makes the house.

“They are very professional and personable to work with. After we closed, we missed speaking with them as often as we did. And Jim was a fantastic liason between us and the workers. He really knows his stuff. They did an excellent job in balancing between my wife’s creative side and my budget. From the initial meetings, to architectural design, through the building process, everyone was extremely pleasant, professional. After closing, if there was ever an issue, they took care of the problem almost immediately. Mark is an absolute expert in land development and Mary had some great ideas and solutions to our needs. We never could have made it through this process without them.”

If you are considering building a new home, I would definitely recommend working with …Benchmark Developers. (They) are very good to work with; fair and reasonable, pleasant and conscientious. We feel fortunate that they were the developers in the area we wanted to build. You are placed in the middle of a circle of mutual respect and treated kindly.”

If you are thinking of building a home with Benchmark Developers, we have two words of advice: DO IT!

“Curt and I were confident from the beginning that we made the right choice in a homebuilder and it feels so good…There is not one thing we would change about this home.”

We have been extremely impressed with Benchmark Developers… Any problems that came up during the building process and post building experience were dealt with in a professional and swift manner.

“We had a grading issue early, and Mark Rasch responded immediately. Homeowners will not find that dedication and service from many builders in the St. Louis area. Building a custom home can be a difficult time; however, you both made the experience an enjoyable one. Thank you so much for all that you have done for us. We will always recommend you to friends and family as a builder you can count on.”

We are writing to express our gratitude for all that you did to make our house building process enjoyable and most rewarding we could not be more pleased with our choice to have your company build our home.

“This was a decision we did not take lightly, though we knew you were the right builder for us after our initial meeting. We recognized the uniqueness of your professional, personalized approach right away.”

Ann and Kevin O.

We are delighted with the finished product. We could not be more pleased with our new home.

“They were there to guide us every step along the way. The quality of the workmanship is outstanding and they have been very responsive to every little detail or issue… I would certainly recommend them to anyone interested in building a new home.”

Ed and Teddy G.

We had many instances in which cars slowed to a stop to discuss our home with us, tell us that they watched its construction and to comment on how attentive our builder was throughout the entire process. We have become accustomed to it as our home appears to be the talk of the neighborhood!

“…we now reside in our dream home. In virtually every aspect, the subcontractors that we worked with were pleasant, offered great suggestions and we received quality products and service.”

It’s been just over a year since we moved into our new house. We couldn’t be happier with it.

“This was the first house we’ve built. We had heard of many bad experiences with contractors from friends and relatives. However, none of these problems arose. You were very attentive to our concerns. We always found you ready to respond – quickly and candidly. It’s been a pleasure working with you.”

Mike and I want to thank you for all the special attention you gave to our house. We really appreciated it. We’re all moved in and love it! Stop by any time.”

We continue to be delighted by our house. All of our neighbors think it (the new house someone built immediately to our west) only emphasizes how nicely our house, by comparison, fits into Webster Groves.”

My husband and I were impressed with Mark as a custom builder and the way he handled the building of our custom home in Kirkwood. Working with Mark was extremely comfortable because of his easygoing personality and the way he communicated the building process to us.

“We have recommended Mark to our friends and neighbors and feel he would do an excellent job building their custom homes, too. Thanks, Mark, for a job well done!”

Linda and George R.

We wanted to write you to express our appreciation for the professional and outstanding job that you and all of your crew members have done.

You should be proud of the home that you construct.  If fact, we feel that a job this beautiful should be complimented. We would recommend you highly to anyone considering building a custom home in the St. Louis area.”

Ray and Chylene D.
Eureka, Missouri

The construction quality was first rate, and after over five months of residence we have had very few repairs or adjustments. What few items required attention were taken care of almost immediately, usually with the personal attention of the construction foreman.

“Our home is a completely custom design. We began from scratch with a piece of graph paper. (Benchmark) worked intensively with us to transform our crude floor plan and front elevation ideas into a beautiful, practical, high quality structure. Designing and building a house is a complex task, and requires a good team to successfully complete this task. We always felt we were a respected and important part of the (Benchmark) team.

We…have been completely satisfied with both the final product and the entire process leading up to and including our closing, which proceeded very smoothly. Overall, we can give an unqualified recommendation to (Benchmark Homes).”

“The party and the weekend were great fun!  We had a lot of complements on the deck & (outdoor) kitchen and we gave out several of your cards to our friends who were interested in doing similar project.  Hopefully you will get a few calls and pickup another project or two.  My brother told us he would love to do something similar at his house.

Becki & I are very pleased with the final product and are very grateful for all of your efforts to have the project completed in time for the party.  I am sure it will see many parties and get plenty of use.

Thanks again!”
