Our Customers Love Us

We have a long list of devoted customers. Some are first time buyers, others are repeat customers, but the end result is always the same. They LOVE their Rea Custom Home! We bring the same level of trust and dedication to our customers every single day over the past 50 years. We hope to add your testimonial to the list someday!

You are family to us

From the first house you built for us, that our family grew up in together in 1995, to the house you built for us at Lake Cable in 2015 to enjoy ourselves and share with our grandchildren, the experience was nothing short of fantastic. The work quality is the best. The people you have working with you are the best, and the overall experience was the best. When the time came to build our final home, there was only one call to make and that was to Skip. Jeff and his team did such a great job with this house. The follow-up, responsiveness, and caring all went into making this house on the lake our new home. Can’t thank you enough! You are family to us!

John and Kris Ziegler

“You made us feel like very special customers”

From the time we contracted to build our house with you, the time and attention you spent with us has made us feel like very special customers of yours. I know it may be routine for you, due to the way you conduct your business, but believe me, it has made us feel very comfortable to know that you care not only at the time of the sale, but also long afterwards.

Jim and Marsha

Our home was complete when promised

Our new home building experience with Rea Custom Homes was amazing from start to finish! Jeff Rea was extremely organized which took the stress out of the home building experience and actually made it enjoyable. We never felt overwhelmed or caught off guard by added expenses. Jeff Rea was hands on each and every day and our home was completed when promised. If we ever build a home again it would definitely be with Rea Custom Homes.

Pete and Sharon Cook

“You actually made building fun!”

We chose Rea Building because of your strong reputation and your ability to customize a home to our needs. Probably the best part of the process was your willingness to work with our ideas. You actually made building fun! We can’t say enough good things about the workmanship, attention to detail, and continued service after we moved in. We are thrilled with the end result.

Randy and Lisa

“The only people we would consider”

We have several friends who have built more than one home with Rea Custom Homes. So when it came time for us to downsize, we knew that Skip and Jeff Rea would be the only people we would consider. We have not been disappointed. The high quality workmanship in our home is even more than we had hoped. We were very impressed with the attention to detail at each phase of construction. We were at the house each day to watch the progress and Jeff made sure that every detail was always the way we wanted.

Marty and Donna Biviano

“Our favorite thing was how you kept us on budget”

We talked to Realtors, developers, suppliers and contractors. They always said positive things about your company. When we sat down to talk, you understood exactly what we were interested in. One of our favorite things about working with your company was how you kept us on budget. There were no hidden surprises. We were very impressed by the service we received after we had moved into our home. The attention you gave was prompt and thorough. If this is being read by someone who is looking for a builder, you can stop looking now! You have found the best!

Kirk and Donna Lombardi

On time and within budget

I have built five houses in my lifetime, two of which were with Rea Custom Homes. And those two were hands down the best experiences of them all. They strive to always give you what you want, while providing input about the latest trends in housing. They went above and beyond in meeting my expectations. I would certainly not hesitate to build with them again.

Lisa Murray

“I always felt you were on our side”

Glenna, you were wonderful in guiding us……you quickly understood what was important to us, what our style was, and helped us in narrowing things down. We had FUN working with you. You always made us feel comfortable and confident in our decisions.

Jeff, thank you for overseeing every detail. I appreciate that you were always on top of things, responding quickly to any questions or concerns that I had. You helped us make our home better than what I dreamed. It’s just fantastic!

Skip, you made us comfortable from the beginning and I always felt like you were on our side in this. I felt that you wanted to build this house as much as we did. I couldn’t imagine going through this experience with a builder other than you. It’s easy to see why you have the reputation that you do. People trust you... your customers and your contractors. I always felt like things would turn out perfect because Skip Rea was behind it all!”

Regina Rokowsky

“Entire team exceeded our expectations”

Rea Builders completed our home three years ago. We could not be more pleased……our home was our dream they helped bring to life. Skip, Jeff, and Glenna and their entire team exceeded our expectations. Glenna was especially helpful during the entire process. She was extremely patient and understanding. We could not have gone through this journey without her.

Galen and Kathy Oakes

“Jeff was the first to ask what WE wanted”

John and I selected Rea Custom homes after having met with two other builders. Jeff was the first to ask what WE wanted in OUR house. Only quality craftsman Work for Rea Custom Homes. Jeff was great at communicating with us throughout the entire process. Some people experience great stress when building a home, but we did not. Building this house was a wonderful experience and we love our home.

John and Joan Ferris

“They made the time to get to know us”

Rea Building Corporation was amazing to work with on all levels. They made the time to get to know us and our tastes, and tapered the experience around that. Skip was instrumental in guiding us along a path for the best long-term” options. They helped us choose a product that we loved, yet will stand the test of time. We will forever be grateful to the Rea’s for our beautiful home.

The Reynolds

“The choice was easy”

Rea Custom Homes has been a long-time trusted builder in the area for as long as I can remember. My parents built their home with Skip more than 30 years ago. When I had the opportunity to build my own home, the choice was easy. Skip was my first call. The process went so smoothly; everything progressed on time and within budget, and I couldn’t be more delighted with the results. I love living in my dream home!

“This is the second home……..”

A few sentences regarding our building experience. Obviously, we have been pleased with the experience, since this is the second home which Rea Custom Homes has built for us. Skip built the first home and Jeff did the second. We like your work because you have good subcontractors and if a mistake is made, you take responsibility and correct it. When I asked for something out of the ordinary, you have been willing to look into it and make it happen. I could not ask for more.

John and Deb Whitmer

“Has built three houses for us”

Rea Custom Homes has built three houses for us in the past 30 years. We have always been pleased with the quality of work, the cost, and their responsive attitude. In addition, their subcontractors are especially skillful, friendly and conscientious. Rea Custom Homes reputation as one of the best builders in the area is well deserved.

We are rapidly getting settled into our new home. There is no question that we chose the right builder for the job. We have found the workmanship to be superb. You kept to the schedule that we outlined early on in the process for which we are most grateful. It made closing and the move from Pennsylvania that much easier. Everyone has gone out of their way to be helpful. We couldn’t be more delighted with the final result. Thank you so very much. It has been a pleasure working with all of you.

Doyle and Marian Luckenbaugh

“You made the process productive and enjoyable”

We cannot imagine any other builder providing that degree of assistance and expertise, let alone the amount of time spent. It is great to live in a neighborhood where the homeowners know, like, and respect their builder. Thank you for making this a pleasant experience.

Tim and Terri Sigler

“We were a bit nervous”

We want to send you a word of thanks for making our building experience a pleasant one. We were a bit nervous at the beginning, but we shouldn’t have been.

The building quality is the best of the best. The workers they contract with are qualified and they are well respected by Skip and Glenna. We love our home and we would build with Rea Custom homes in the future.

This is the second home………

This is the second home that we had built with Rea Custom Homes. The first home was built in 1999. That experience was great. So we had our current home, built by Skip Rea also. We love it!

Alice and Dave Riggs

Accommodate unique construction requests

We had the pleasure of building a new home with Skip and Glenna Rea. They will go out of their way to accommodate unique construction requests. During the building process, the number of decisions that need to be made can be overwhelming. They used their expertise to help guide us through those decisions to ensure a cohesive and beautiful final product. The Rea team has been terrific to work with during the building process and afterward. We are very happy with our home.

Shane and Kathy Stanton

All recommended building with Rea

Our experience with Rea Custom Homes was exceptional. Before we built, we spoke with a variety of members of the trades - plumbers, excavators and designers - and all recommended building with the Reas. We were not disappointed. We found the Reas very easy to work with from our very first meeting to the final walk-through. The Reas took pride in building our home. We love our home!

Mario and Jennifer Millen

Bird-dogs every detail

We were absolutely satisfied with Jeff Rea. The ease of the process exceeded our expectations. Jeff is organized and bird-dogs every detail. He is an excellent communicator. I could relax and know that Jeff was on top of things, and reacted as though it was his own personal home.

Todd and Mary

You made it fun and exciting

Mark and I want to thank you and your staff for the beautiful job on our new house. You took a very stressful time in our life and made it fun and exciting. With all the decisions that had to be made, you made it easy by guiding us in the right direction. You have an excellent source of people who were willing to sit down and help us find the perfect fixtures, carpet, and appliances to make our home just right.

Mark and Laurie

Your service is second to none

We want to thank you for making the building of our new home such a pleasure. We had heard horror stories about having a home built, but there was none of that with your company. It started with your helping us in finding a perfect location. Then you helped us modify the plans so the setting is perfect. We had no idea when we first started how beautiful our home would turn out to be. We also appreciate your immediate response to each question or detail we had. Your service is second to none. We recommend your company.

Sherm and Sally

Truly amazed us!

Trying to build a home while living 350 miles away, can be a daunting task at best. Jeff Rea made that task a true joy. He worked with us to make our dream retirement home everything we hoped it would be. His attention to even the smallest detail and overseeing of the subcontractors truly amazed us. We couldn’t be more pleased.

Doyle and Marian

We truly had the best!

Jeff, we want to thank you for helping us make this house truly our home. You helped make a difficult transition in our lives very simple and we sincerely thank you for that. Both you and your staff were absolutely wonderful to work with. We always knew you had our best interest at heart. We could not have asked for anyone better to build us such a beautiful home. We truly had the best!

Mike and Kim Gmerek

First time buyers

We were very satisfied with the service and quality provided by Jeff. As first time home buyers, we had a great deal of questions because we lacked knowledge of all the details involved in building a home. Jeff was extremely helpful, and answered all our questions.

Chuck and Peggy

We all had different builders

Two colleagues and I built new homes at the same time. We all had different builders. Larry and I experienced none of the nightmares of the other couples. Of the three, we did not build the biggest or most expensive home, but we do have the best quality home for the dollar. We are very happy in our Jeff Rea home.

Larry and Karen

Easier than we ever expected

We want to take a moment to thank you. You made this experience memorable for us. We appreciated the integrity, professionalism and friendliness that you exhibited throughout this process. You made our home building project easier than we ever expected. The home was completed on time. The project management was without flaw. The materials were of great quality. Vendors and suppliers were friendly, responsive and extremely helpful. Jeff was always available to us.
As a wise consumer, we investigated prior to engaging your services and only heard favorable things. We heard nothing but praise! It was very comforting to know you are highly thought of in the home building industry. Thanks again.

Joe and Kim

We have worked with four different builders

Since we have worked with four different builders, building new homes in Jackson Township, we feel that we are uniquely qualified to give a testimonial of the Jeff Rea building experience. What a pleasant surprise! We were so pleased with the attention to detail and the gentle, knowledgeable guidance provided by Jeff’s staff, to help us customize our home. The subcontractors’ workmanship was outstanding. Two important aspects for us were that there was no monetary “surprise” at the close, and Jeff’s quick and professional response to our problem calls (which were few). We highly recommend Jeff Rea to anyone who wants a pleasurable and stress free home building experience.

Ron and Ronna

Friendly atmosphere

Jeff creates a very friendly atmosphere between himself, the subcontractors, and the homeowner, which made the job much easier. Overall, we think it was a very good experience!
