Here’s a realtor’s review of Excel’s work:
One of the first deals I ever wrote as a licensed REALTOR was with excel, they are nothing but world class in an industry that’s very competitive but often hard to navigate from the good to the great to the exceptional. The real estate partners team definitely recommends their work and service and are very comfortable recommending our clients to this builder whenever the opportunity arises for our buyers looking to purchase from a reputable and trustworthy new home builder.
And here’s a client’s review:
“We built our dream home last year with Excel in Midtown and we could not believe how easy the process was! We moved from out of province and chose everything from our floorplan to our lighting, flooring, countertops, and appliances all on Facetime. It only took an afternoon to have everything chosen and the contract signed with the Salesperson Emily.
We used Excel’s mortgage broker Lorrie for our mortgage and she was awesome. Once she had all of paperwork we had our approval within hours of submitting everything!
On the day we took possession Excel made us feel welcome and at home. They had put a big bow on our door and a gift waiting for us (we loved the little touches)! We only had a few minor things to report in our walkthrough after possession (a couple of paint touch ups and a small scratch on our stove door) which were fixed that same week.
Thank you so much Emily, Jeff, Kevin, and Michelle for making our move across Canada so easy and for building us our beautiful home!”

- Winner – 2018 Customer Insight HOME Awards
- Builder of the Year – 2017
Here’s a review from a Stepper client:
“We recommend Stepper Homes to friends and family as they have great work ethic and the quality of their work is awesome.
I worked a lot with Jeremy and Jesse through Stepper and both were so knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way. Extremely hard working and pleasant people! Through the building process and afterwards, you know that everything will go smoothly as they always keep in touch and answer all the questions you have.
Love our new home and very happy with the build quality and the quick timeline from Stepper Homes.”
And here’s one more:
“As new home buyers we were understandably nervous about buying a new home and from the moment we stepped into the showhome, we were put at ease by our sales representative at the time, Walt. He really encouraged us to take our time and did not put an ounce of pressure on us. He was very thorough and thoughtful in answering our questions and did not hound us once when we took a month of to reconsider our prospects.
After deciding to purchase, we were happily surprised with Stepper’s above-and-beyond customer service, such as the “wet chinchilla” pantry glass that was thrown in by Stepper and Walt’s extra details on the paperwork to make sure our changes were seen by the construction crew (even though we were purchasing a spec home).
During construction we had a few changes to our reps (new sales rep, new site supervisor), but this did not change the quality of our home build. Jared, our site supervisor, even took some time during the christmas break to give us a house tour when we were too excited to wait. And Josh has been a delight – he always has some new insight about the neighbourhood or new homeowner tips!
Lastly, our warranty rep, Jorge, has so far been very responsive to any concerns we had (including two small basement leaks that were fixed within 24-48 hours) and we look forward to continuing to work with him should any new issues pop up (as is to be expected in any new build!)”

- HomeStars’ best of 2018
- Best of Houzz 2019
Here are a few words from a Kurmak client:
“We renovated our kitchen and living room. Kurmak Builders was a great choice to work with. Their emphasis is on quality, value, and communication. Their ability to build good relationships with vendors and trades in the industry has enabled them to hire high quality craftsmen. They always demonstrated concern for our needs and were very responsive to changes throughout the project. Our house held a few surprises for them (and us) and these were handled with great care and concern for our home now and in the future. We are so happy with the results and are happy and relieved we chose to work with Kurmak. All of the things that are important to us were met and exceeded with Kurmak: such as quality, value, respect, communication, responsiveness, creativity and genuine concern for our needs.
We will definitely hire Kurmak again for any/all renovations in the future.”
And some more:
We had a problem with our house lifting due to the swelling of the clay underneath it, which caused some ugly cracks and buckling in our drywall on both levels. We attended a Home Expo in Calgary and spoke to several renovation contractors. Frank from Kurmac Builders visited our home and we felt confident right away. Frank arranged for surveyors to determine where in the house and how much it had shifted as well as obtaining a soil analysis from under the house (things that should have been done originally when we built). Through consultation with a Structural Engineer he put a plan in place to remove the drywall in the basement and cut down the wall that was constructed too tight underneath the main beam. He then devised a way to allow the wall to float with any further expansion. My wife took this an an opportunity to renovate her kitchen and upgrade the flooring and counters and also put a steam shower in the basement. This work was all completed to our satisfaction under budget. Their employees were excellent to deal with and went to great pains to keep construction dust to a minimum and cleaned up after all sub contractors. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody considering a home renovation.

A client gave kudos to Saville’s hands-on approach:
“Building a custom home is a big investment and quite the [selection] process as anyone who has been through the experience would know. Selecting the right [home builder] at the beginning is paramount for success. It took me a bit of time to find somebody like Sheldon of Saville Homes and when we connected, I knew it was the right chemistry to get the job done. Sheldon operated with a high degree of integrity and always followed up with his commitments which gave us continuous confidence in his work. Arriving to the end result is a process and decisions were sometimes untimely, however an accommodating and responsive builder such as Saville Homes made all the difference. Sheldon always had the time and patience to deal with matters brought to his attention; he gave good consultations and sound recommendations that benefitted the budget and ultimately the client at the end of the day.”
Another complimented the level of dedication put into their home:
“We love the design, the plan, the materials, the location, the finishing, and… etc! In addition, the way that Sheldon explained how he built the house, is clear and amazing. You can tell Sheldon had put his heart and efforts on building the house, and that’s what we want. After 4

Mike is an excellent project manager; his team was always on-time and professional, and Mike kept us on schedule and within the quote. He regularly communicated with us as to the status and progress of the work and informed us ahead of time whenever he needed something from us or our designer. We were so pleased with the work we have asked Mike to complete our full basement renovation as well.”
Meanwhile, this one lauds their hands-on approach:
“I am pleased to provide this letter of reference regarding the recent completion of our new residence. Right from the beginning Electrim Development (aka District Homes) took ownership and responsibility of all aspects of the project. Marian and Mike were always ready and willing to address all of our concerns. The construction process was planned and executed in an organized and timely manner. [Their] subcontractors completed their work efficiently and effectively and of the highest quality. I really appreciated Electrim Developments attention to detail during the finishing stages. In conclusion, [I] would definitely recommend Electrim Developments for your next project.”

Would highly, highly recommend Van Manna homes. We did a renovation on our ensuite/closet/ master bedroom and an addition of a mudroom on our main floor. The renovation was done in record time and on budget. The worked within our budget without any pressure to spend more, and we were thrilled with the results. I was shocked how they had people working late and on weekends and the project was finished before we were promised. They were transparent with pricing and the customer service and project management team was exceptional.
Ashlyn, Willow Park – Mudroom Addition & New En Suite
We contacted Van Manna homes for a master on suite renovation. Not only do we LOVE the bathroom, but we were more than impressed with the professionalism and quality of work done. The entire team was approachable, respectful, patient and willing to work with us within our specified budget. Neither my husband nor myself were entirely sure what we wanted and really valued having the experienced staff assist us with the decision making, right down to finding us beautiful tiles at a discounted price. I also got the vanity I always wanted but didn’t think I had room for! It worked out that we were out of the country for a majority of the work but receiving frequent emails, pictures and texts updating us on the progress put our minds at ease. The communication was frequent and we always felt like we were the priority. We will definitely be contacting Van Manna for any future renovations.

We had 4 areas of our home under construction as well as developing our basement with lots of moving parts at once to coordinate. Brian oversaw all the projects and provided his expertise on every detail. He is a very nice man to work with and was always available to be there and to get in and work if needed as well. His son James also works with him and they are a great team. Very personable and hard working. Brian offered his advice on where you could save money or where you should spend the money on certain things. The whole Cook family has been a pleasure to get to know and to stop and have coffee with too during the busy construction day.”
“Cook Custom Homes constructed an outdoor kitchen to tie into our existing covered deck. From the beginning of the planning stage, during construction and to the final completion, everything was seamless. Brian Cook was always available with any questions or concerns we had. The trades were always professional and did a fantastic job. This addition to our home looks as though it was constructed with our home and not added 3 years later. The roof was tied into the existing covered deck without issue, the stone and stucco match perfectly and the cedar ceiling looks amazing! The landscaping and flooring was done by Cook Custom Landscapes, Lewis was easy to work with and had great suggestions on design and selection. Couldn’t be happier with our new living space and would not hesitate to use them in the future.”

Here’s another one:
“Recently purchased a home with Truman and the experience was amazing. The sales staff were great, every detail was covered and explained… The quality and attention to detail from sales all the way to their site staff was great. Any questions or concerns were met with a quick response and a resolution. Thank you Truman for making the experience a good one.”

Through the entire process we were impressed on many levels, from the quality of workmanship to the high level of customer service provided by Eric himself. I would not hesitate to build another house with Eric’s homes and have recommended them to my friends and family.”
Here’s another one:
“Eric was extremely accommodating to work with. Since we wanted a very specific custom home, Eric guided us through the channels that gave us control to make the all the design decisions. From the first day, he was actively involved on the building site, which continued through the build. His trades were all friendly, professional and talented. We were pleased with Eric’s ‘standards’ that other builders charge as upgrades.
Eric is passionate, meticulous and proud of the homes he builds for his clients, ours included. Unbelievably, he created our “happy-ever-after” home in less than seven months. Eric’s Homes was the perfect choice!”

“Pinnacle was responsive, professional, and did truly excellent work. I’m a wheelchair user and I moved into a new home that needed a few adjustments for accessibility. Not only did Pinnacle respond to my questions right away, but they understood the need and the time crunch to make things usable for me. They completely the job quickly, very expertly, and without the need for me to intercede at any time. They kept me up to date on what was happening and I could trust that they would get the job done!

Here’s another one:
“So happy we found and hired Pinnacle to make our home even more than we envisioned it could be. We were in need of some cosmetic updates as well as creating a bathroom with a roll in shower. We thought we’d have to use the existing hall bath but the day Paul came for a walk through his expert mind seen the opportunity to add an entire ensuite in the long master bedroom. He had very knowledgable crews who were experts in their trades and stayed on a very precise schedule which I had access to view online. His entire team was so great to deal with from the designer to the shop where I picked my tiles & countertops. Could not recommend this group enough to take after all the upgrade needs in your home without missing any details.”

Here’s another one:
“My wife and I are currently looking at new homes and came upon paragon after a referral from a family member. We have been dealing with Bobby and he has been a absolute pleasure to deal with. We didn’t feel any pressure or rush from him and he actually encouraged us to also see other builders and explain what sets them apart. Although with covid things have taken a back seat with the home buying Paragon is our number one choice when we are ready to proceed. What I really liked about this company is that they are a locally owned and operated builder with tons of attention to detail and customer relations. You are not a number and actually feel like they are looking out for the best interest for you
Thanks again and merry Christmas to you and your team”
