“Dear Ms. Kicinski –
My husband, Andrew and I are very happy with the home that LifeStyle built for us. We have been in our new home a little over two months now, and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. I plan to provide a review for my overall experience building with LifeStyle, and I know that so many wonderful people worked together on our behalf to make such a great home for us, but this email is specifically about our experience working with Dan Coe as our Superintendent.
Dan’s quality oversight of all the aspects of the build and attention to details made our home turn out beautifully. Dan noticed issues that needed fixing that I didn’t notice. This attention to fixing the issues, illustrates to me that Dan takes pride in his work. He was interested in doing things right and not just getting the job done quickly. He didn’t skip over things that could have been skipped over, because we didn’t notice them. Despite this commitment to quality, the house got built so quickly! We broke ground at the end of May and moved into the home at the end of March. That seems quick to me considering the size of the home and the delays due to covid and me changing my mind :).
Dan is a master at scheduling and organizing the crews of contractors. There didn’t seem to be long stretches of time when there was no work getting done at the house. I can only imagine that there is a lot of juggling schedules and timing of work, but it never seemed to be too big of an issue for Dan. He worked it out and kept things moving, and even if there were delays, he got things back on schedule.
Additionally, Dan listened to our needs. When I pointed out something that needed to be fixed he did not try to talk me out of fixing the issue or making a repair because it was good enough. Instead, if there was an issue, he got it fixed. He listened to our concerns and took appropriate action.
He communicated clearly and concisely with us. During the build, a few things didn’t quite turn out the way we had envisioned. When we approached Dan with these concerns, he listened to us and then made the necessary changes.
Also when a decision needed to be made and we were unsure of how to proceed with a few details, he was knowledgeable and helpful in guiding us to what would look best. For example, I am very grateful for his recommendation on changing the beams in the great room to make it feel more open and allow the fireplace stone to be a focal point. It was Dan who made this recommendation and I am glad that he did. This is just one of countless details in our home that Dan guided and directed us on.
I appreciate that even after we moved in and closed on the house, Dan took care of problems that came up after the move.
Additionally, our house was so clean when we moved in! I have never moved into such a clean house. The outside was clean too! There wasn’t overspray (except on one spot that Dan got fixed) or debris around the house.
We are thrilled with our house. We couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. We are so grateful to Dan Coe for being such a fantastic superintendent.
All the best.”
