Reviews

Jeff and his team were amazing helping my wife and I find our first home together. My wife had used Jeff for her first house as well. He took the time to show us so many properties and give us his honest advice on everything. He was not in it to make a quick buck. We ended up getting a new build home and Jeff was everything you want in a new home expert. He guided us on what selections were most important for long term value and comfort. He even followed up months after the sale to make sure everything with the house was okay and sent us a check in the mail to cover a cost which he had no responsibility to cover. I know I will use Jeff again for when I purchase my next house.

Mark Adler Homes has been building homes for close to four decades. During those experienced years we have worked with many people in different aspects of the business. Jeff and his team at The New Home Experts are knowledgeable, pleasant, detailed and professional. Buying a new home is exciting and stressful at the same time. They know how to make it a pleasant experience for the homeowner and builder/seller. Mark Adler Homes highly recommends The New Home Experts Team.

Lou and Jeff were great to work with! They knew our situation was not of an urgent matter and worked with us for over 2 years from when we first got in contact with each other. Not only did they help us find our new home along with the sale of our old home, but they were a great resource to help guide us through the whole process. We used their knowledge to guide us in decision making and industry standards from start to finish. We felt extremely comforted knowing they were working with and for us, They made the whole process as smooth as it could be.
