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.

- Integrated design process
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 and his team did a fabulous job on our home. The quality and workmanship were of very high standards while still very competitively priced. 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.

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.
