Smolen Homes Wish List 



John’s love of the home building business inspires him to continue the tradition passed down to him from his family and uphold the reputation of Smolen Homes into the next generation.

John not only oversees the daily operations of the business, but is a hands-on craftsman. He has a special talent in trim carpentry and prides himself on putting the finishing touches on a home. His love of the craft shows in the custom-designed bookshelves, cabinets, mantels and trim work that are a feature of every Smolen home. His versatility in his job makes it possible to see John working with the architect to finalize a print, meeting with clients to discuss specific details, working with suppliers and subcontractors, all in one day.

The characteristics of Smolen Homes that separate us from our competition.

Communication: Direct communication from beginning to end with John Smolen. John Smolen, owner and President, will give you his cell phone number at the contract signing, and from that point on you can reach him directly in regards to your new Smolen home. We have created a guide that helps each customer move through the building process informed with a time-line and flow that keeps them on track. We like to let you know what is coming up and what we need from you to make it happen. We all communicate daily or weekly so that everyone knows where the job stands and what either needs to be done next or what is scheduled to be done next. 

We Build Dreams: We can take your ideas in rough form, put them together with our architect, and before you know it you’ll be putting finishing touches on a house you’ve designed from inception to completion! 

Experience: John is a third generation builder who has worked in the custom home building business his entire life. He has seen what works, and knows what doesn’t and he’ll tell you the truth. 

Quality: John won’t compromise on quality- not in the product line, personnel, or subcontractors on the job.

Character: John is a man of character who will stick by his word and to the word of the contract.

Commitment: Smolen Homes, Inc. makes a commitment to be sure that our clients are treated in a personalized and professional way-from the office, to our real estate agent and company, meetings with John, to walk-through appointments with our electricians, painters, plumbers, and other subcontractors.

Flexibity: Smolen Homes Inc. is small enough to handle all of the tiniest details with individual attention, and large enough to build you the house of your dreams.

Custom: We will build you any size home that suits your needs—we’ve built small ranch homes for the young retired as well as estate homes. We’ll do whatever you want, however you want-and every job and every customer receives the same quality of attention unique to their needs.

Upgraded Windows: All our windows and sliding doors are Low “E” rated and also argon gas filled. That translates to lower heating bills and a more comfortable home.

Our Mission: When we give our word, we will give you our best. It’s character, communication, and commitment to our customers and the final product that sets us apart from our competition.
