When I had a house fire – three years ago this month – I solicited home building ideas from at least a dozen contractors – concerning the options and associated costs for rebuilding my home.

Of all of the contractors – with whom I spoke – only Jonathan Isaacson understood my concerns about rebuilding with a wood frame house – and – suggested innovative and cost saving options to my home building strategy.

Specifically – none of the other contractors was interested in building a non-wood-frame-house and told me that they would spray the exterior walls with stucco – so that it would “look like” masonry.

Honestly speaking – witnessing one’s house go up in flames – then – having to witness the ashes of one’s house hauled down one’s driveway to the landfill does something to oneself.

I must confess that I was in a moment of despair and confusion – when I had the good fortune of meeting with Jonathan Isaacson.

As I met with Jonathan and his team – over the course of several meetings – to discuss various building options and designs – we settled on Rastra – which is a type of Insulating Concrete Form (ICF) – as the basic material with which to rebuild my home.

In addition – we incorporated several innovative designs into my basic home design – to include an attached greenhouse – and – the option for supplementing my electrical requirements with solar power.   Of particular enjoyment to me – was the framing for the installation of Victorian Era (Architectural Salvage) Pocket Doors – each of which was eight feet high – and – constructed of solid walnut and chestnut.

That which was most Impressive to me – was – Jonathan’s professional pleasure and eagerness at doing something a little bit out of the ordinary – which – stood in stark contrast to those cookie-cutter contractors with whom I had spoken.

Jonathan’s crew of Sub-Contractors was outstanding – bar none – each a professional is his own right.   Each and every step of construction was checked – and – double checked by a team of professionals – to assure compliance with all building and safety codes.

All-in-all – I am most fortunate in having chosen Isaacson Construction – and – most grateful for their professionalism and patience – for – having worked with me through this month’s long planning and construction process.

Jonathan – Thank you.

Dear Jonathan and lsaacson Team,

On behalf of my wife Gayle and myself, we would like to thank you and your company for helping us to rebuild our home that was lost in the Monument Fire on June 19,2011.

As you know we went through quite an ordeal” When Gayle and I first met with you and Ben at The little restaurant, we felt an immediate comfort and trust with you. I had it in my head when we met that we were going to replace our Manufactured Home with a new Manufactured Home. I never dreamed that we could afford to own a custom home. The time that you, Ben, and Philip took to walk us through the process was a huge help. Your dad was so kind to come out on short notice and remove all of our fire debris when the other company we hired bailed on us.

Your company’s professionalism showed right away. The first step was to design our new home. Coming up with a floor plan was hard for us but with your guidance we made it through the process and you made us feel confident in our plans.

I will never forget the day when my wife Gayle got to use the backhoe to break ground on our new home. I will also never forget the feeling of driving in the first nail. lt was the little things like that which helped us in our healing process.

The homes you have built speak for themselves with the quality of materials and craftsmanship that you use. From our concrete floors to our concrete countertops, I can’t tell you how happy we are with the results.

I would highly encourage any customer looking to have a new custom home built to choose lsaacson Homes as their builder, I personally guarantee that they won’t be disappointed.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything that you, your family and company have done to help us enjoy a new chapter in our life.

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a letter of appreciation and recommendation for Jonathan Isaacson and all the members of his home building workforce.

On this anniversary of moving into our home, we would like to express our most sincere appreciation for the extraordinary manner in which all aspects of the rebuilding of our home were accomplished. We were impressed from the first meeting with how your questions and suggestions seemed designed to help us describe what we really wanted rather than convince us to select something you had to offer. This sense of placing our interests first continued throughout the entire process. Ben Garcia and Caesar did an outstanding job of keeping us involved and on track. There were no unpleasant surprises or even stressful moments.

We wish to especially recognize Philip for a most excellent job integrating critical milestones to ensure the absolutely best financing for us while adjusting for the uncertainties of finding true craftsmen for special features. His guidance on how to accomplish improvements we suddenly wanted without increasing our costs was especially helpful. He has continued this type of support even after closing to make sure any minor faults were instantly corrected.

I firmly believe we had the best possible experience rebuilding our home from total destruction by wildfire because we selected Isaacson Homes. You made the experience an actual joy. We continue to enjoy our home as we show it to friends and family.

Sincerely,

RICHARD and PAT LOOMIS

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

Thank you, Jonathan Isaacson and team, for the great job you did in getting our house together. Our experience with you couldn’t be better.

We decided to retire to the Sierra Vista, AZ area in 2009. When we did we contacted several different custom builders, and chose Isaacson Quality Construction (Isaacson Homes, Inc.) for the job. Considering we lived in Alabama at the time, it was a real risk on our part. But Jonathan made our move as easy as he possibly could.

If he had a question about even a small issue, he called or emailed to verify what we wanted. There were days when I got several phone calls, but I didn’t mind in the least, because I knew Jonathan was doing everything he could to expedite the building process and make our building experience positive. When we decided we wanted to make our on purchases on different items within the house, he was very flexible with it as long as it worked out for everybody concerned. Whenever we needed to be here to take care of matters, he let us know in plenty of time so we could arrange leave and get here in time.

The follow-up of Isaacson Homes, Inc., in the year since we moved in has been just as professional as the building process. in the six months between my move to Hereford and my husband’s move here, Jonathan and company were more helpful than I expected. With many builders, once a house is built, they feel their job is done. For example, before my husband arrived, our well froze. Never having had a well, I had no idea how to handle such an issue, so I called my trusty builder. Jonathan personally came out and took care of the problem, then he gave me directions on what to do if it happened again.

His hands-on approach gave us great confidence that if anything went wrong (and of course a couple of things did), Jonathan would handle it in an ethical and professional manner.

We would have, and have had, no compulsion recommending Jonathan and Isaacson Homes, Inc. for anybody’s building needs. And if you’re moving cross-country, you couldn’t want for a better builder.

Thank again, Jonathan and crew, for a job extremely well done.

Jonathan

My wife and I had always heard that building a house was one of the most stressful endeavors a couple could undertake, and during our first meeting you told me that you would do everything in your power to ensure this was not the case. I can say that you and your company/family succeeded. You spent the extra time in the design phase to make sure we had the design exactly as we wanted, and never made us feel rushed, or put out by request of questions. Everyone worked very hard to make us comfortable with the process as well as the actual construction.

The house turned out to be everything we hoped for and more. I wanted to thank you for your guidance when we asked for your honest opinion in the design and building phase which at times saved us money and other times ensured we got exactly what we wanted. I have to say that you, Ben, and Philip made us feel like more than just clients, and that you cared about how we were doing with the construction as well as making sure the quality of the house meet your high standards.

The only reason I would not use Isaacson’s Quality Construction again is because we love this house so much, and never want to leave it, but I would absolutely recommend Jonathan to anyone considering building a house.
