    Mark and everyone at Benchmark,
    I really left a lot of memories and stuff behind at the house, so I have been feeling both sorry for handing off such weight but also appreciative that I could find a good operation such as yours to take over the property and prepare it for another family to call home for many years to come. Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for your efforts, your understanding, and your patience in seeing the sale of this property through to the end. Sincerely,
    Max B.

    I was VERY impressed with the Henges guy laying the flooring yesterday.  VERY nice, respectful and explained how he had to prep the floor and the extra care he took to ‘do it right’ vs. just rushing through it.  I really appreciated that!!! For that matter, every single contractor we have encountered (as well as all of the Benchmark team, of course!) has been very kind and a joy to deal with.  We have always felt like we were in great hands and not a single corner has been cut. We recognize the quality of work that these skilled craftsmen are putting into the house and we appreciate it! We sure do LOVE our beautiful home!!!  It is just perfect and we sit in awe every night!!!  THANK YOU!

    Mark and his team did a great job building our custom home. We met early on after we found our location and went through what we wanted in a house and worked with an architect to design our dream house. My concern early on was whether or not what I had in my head would be what I got when we moved in and I can say that everything looks and feels exactly like I wanted and I expected. Benchmark was very responsive to our questions and concerns along the way and I would recommend them to anyone looking to build their own dream home.

    We contracted with Benchmark Custom Home Builders Inc to build our custom dream home. They were with us every step of the way and delivered on everything we expected. They guided us and communicated with us during the process. This was our first time building a home and they took time to explain everything and let us know what to expect. The attention to detail was spot on and their trim carpenters did incredible work. Mark and Jeff are great to work with and we highly recommend Benchmark to anyone considering a home remodel or new construction. 10/10

    Professional and quality construction. They pay close attention to detail and give first rate service. Dina, Mark and Team showed us a beautiful home that was about 75% done. They were easy to work with to complete the project. It was a good experience in buying a home.

    Very happy with the quality of our new build. Great attention was paid to details throughout. The home buying process was made seamless by the entire Benchmark team on every level. Mark and Dina were exceptional to work with. Would highly recommend.

    We appreciate the hard work to get the basement completed and functional before our parties! Can’t thank you enough for the hard work.  You really kept us focusing on the outcome and assured us it would all come together in the end. You all knocked each new section out of the park for us and the end piece is simply stunning!

  • Linda & George R.
    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 easy-going personality and the way he communicated the building process to us.

    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.

  • Mark & Kim G.
    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 liaison 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.

    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 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.

    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.
