First, we met with Michael Mahar as he helped us come up with an overall vision and style for our home, and helped us select a home site that met the needs that we had for the house and yard.
Next, talent and experienced architect, Jeff Mayfield, asked us about our lifestyle, needs, wants and desires, and he designed a floor plan that flows seamlessly from one room to the next. He took the spaces that we asked for and made them all fit into a perfectly, custom-made space, designed specifically for our family. Jeff also added many unique design elements to make our house look and feel just like we wanted. Jeff had lots of good suggestions and we benefitted from his extensive experience in designing homes. There is not anything that he did not know. He is truly a skilled professional. Now that we’ve lived in the space for a while, we know that he truly captured what we were looking for as far as how we live and function in the space. The house is easy to keep clean and organized thanks to many of the organizational features that Jeff built into our home. That has been a real plus!
A major part of the ease in building was due to Designer, Gina Heckley. There are so many choices to make, but Gina worked with us every step of the way to help us select everything from crown molding and paint colors to stone accents and light bulbs. The process would have been very overwhelming without her help, but she made it easy and painless. Gina has the unique ability to give expert advice and feedback without overstepping bounds or making the space “her vision.” She knew what our vision was and helped us make the space our own.
Another element to the building process that really made the building process a positive experience, was working with Project Manager, Todd Krug. Friends of ours had told us Todd was great to work with, and that is exactly what we found. Todd is extremely detailed and didn’t miss a thing. You got the feeling that there was nothing new to him…kind of like he had so much experience that he knew exactly what to do when a new challenge arose. He made great suggestions, offered good solutions and kept the whole project right on track. He gave us a detailed construction timeline so we knew months in advance when the house was being painted, when the appliances were going in and what day the light fixtures would light up the space. That was really helpful information to have. He was really good at keeping the project moving with minimal delays and was very good at communicating with us. We never worried about a thing just knowing that he had it covered.
Our positive experience with Mahar Homes did not end when we moved in. Brad Cook has followed up with us on several occasions to make sure all of our appliances are working correctly, the timers on the landscaping are set to water the yard efficiently, and to make sure that we are pleased in general. It’s been nice to know that the service did not end the day that we closed on the house, but that any concerns that we had after the fact, have been taken care of in a timely manner.
We absolutely love living in our new home. The quality of the home has really impressed us. The house is very quiet and the neighborhood peaceful. Living in the new space works just as Architect, Jeff Mayfield, said it would. We have hosted dozens of parties and gatherings from small and intimate occasions to large parties and celebrations and the space works wonderfully inside and out for any size party. It truly is a home that we are building wonderful memories in and is a blessing to be able to share with friends and family.
Everything about our experience in working with Mahar Homes has been top notch, and we couldn’t be happier or feel more blessed![/su_toggle]
My wife and I moved into our new home last week and I am writing to let you know how impressed and appreciative we are of you and your team.
We have interacted with Gina, Donna, Mike Day, several sub contractors and a few other Mahar employees. We have consistently experienced the same level of friendliness, professionalism and quality. You and your team have made our home buying experience as pain free and enjoyable as possible.
Mike, you have developed a culture of customer service that permeates Mahar Homes and you should be proud of your company and staff. Mahar Homes builds a terrific home at a very competitive price using the best people and we are very pleased that we purchased a home through your company.
We wish you and Mahar Homes all the best.[/su_toggle]
We began looking for our new home in July 2013. We considered purchasing a lot and building a home, resales and new homes in the Medford area. We were unfamiliar with Oregon real estate as we were making the move from Central California to Medford, Oregon. After viewing many resales and several lots, we finally came upon the Summerfield subdivision in East Medford, built by Mahar Homes.
We took a tour of a newly built Windgate Street home and immediately fell in love; a single-story home with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, a beautiful kitchen and perfect layout. We couldn’t believe the attention to detail in this home and the upgrades just totally surprised us. We hadn’t seen upgrades like this except in homes much more expensive. The quality of the hardwood floors, carpeting, cabinets, stonework and fixtures was amazing.
Both front and back yards were totally landscaped. Attention to detail was apparent there as well. Beautiful shrubs and trees were obviously placed according to their size and what sun exposure they require. We have two beautiful trees on the boulevard and a rich, healthy lawn and all the flower beds contain a thick layer of bark mulch. Mahar also created two retaining walls which give the property added dimension and stability to where the property slopes slightly.
After eight months living on Windgate Street, we have met many of the contractors who worked on building our home – stoneworkers, painters, stucco guys, landscapers, roofers, electricians, concrete guys and deck builders. Every one of them is wonderful to talk with and they are attentive to any concern we might have. They do what they say they will do and they follow through. You won’t meet a better bunch of guys working for Mahar Homes. And add Michael Day, Project Manager of Mahar Homes to your list of “must know” people. He’s like ten people all rolled into one. He really gets whatever is needed – done….quickly! He’s always right there when you need him, always smiling and more than happy to help.
If ever we were to purchase another home, we would go straight to Mahar Homes and see what they’ve got available. You won’t go wrong buying a Mahar Home! We are tremendously happy! A BIG thank you to Mahar Homes![/su_toggle]
