We purchased a lot to build on, and now just needed the floor plan and a builder to execute. Much time was spent attending new construction open houses and online researching. We weren’t focused on style when we hit an open house, but more the overall quality of the product. A builder can change their style from house to house, but the quality of the construction is something that will remain constant. We toured many homes in the Des Moines area, constructed by various builders, but nothing stood out. The first time we walked inside a home built by QB Homes, we saw both the quality we desired and they style we loved. So we went to work on a house plan and Nick was there to help along the way and spent a lot of time with us before we ever committed to him for our builder. Another thing that stood out was he always answered his phone and promptly returned emails. He provided us a detailed bid for the construction costs and walked us through all the questions we had before we signed on the dotted line. The build process requires a lot of choices to be made and Nick attended all of the meetings with us either to provide guidance or just to be a sounding board for ideas. We completed our build in the estimated timeframe and are living happily in our home from QB Homes.

If you are looking for a builder of your dream home then we would highly recommend Nick Quandt with QB Homes. We chose Nick after months of research and numerous referrals from his past clients. Not only was Nick able to keep us on budget but he also met our timelines and achieved our vision for our home. His quality and attention to detail speak for itself. We highly recommend and would absolutely build with QB Homes again if we didn’t love the home he built for us so much.

- Jeremy & Sara S, Adel, IA

The building process with QB Homes was fast and efficient. The allowances in our budget were accurate and allowed for quality materials installed the “right way”. When we moved in we experienced the comfort of knowing our home was well built. We are glad we chose QB Homes to build our home.

We really enjoyed working with Nick building or forever home. He brought insight to our plans and was awesome at making changes on the fly. We are not architects, so this was very helpful as there were things in our plans that we did not understand. We also wanted a lot of unique touches added and brought in barn wood and beams that were from our family barns. He did an exceptional job of making all of this work and we could not be happier with the finished product! We highly recommend Nick for building your custom dream home!

- Jen H, Adel, IA

The first time we stopped into a house built by Nick at QB Homes we knew he would be our builder. His attention to detail, quality, and overall craftsmanship was really impressive compared to the other homes we had looked at. Combine that with his honesty, promptness, and easy to work with attitude, and we couldn’t have gone wrong. We have lived in our home now for over a year and we absolutely love it! Our experience with Nick couldn’t have been better. We highly recommend him!

My wife and I started the search for a new home by attending weekend open houses, but after six months and approximately fifty homes we were never able to find the home that we truly loved. Our frustrations began to mount until we visited a QB Home. We were immediately impressed by the excellent curb appeal of the QB Home and how it was competitively priced. The quality of the QB Home was inferior to none of the other homes we had visited so we decided to purchase. Unfortunately, once we made our decision to make an offer we discovered that another family had already purchased the home that we wanted. Disappointed, we continued to visit other open houses but always found ourselves comparing the homes to the QB standard. Knowing that he would eventually be our choice, we contacted Nick and identified a lot where he could build a home for our family. From the start of the process of working with Nick everything went smoothly and he always made himself available to answer our many questions. Nick was never pushy, never tried to sell us on something that we didn’t want and he always was empathetic that it was our home he was building, not his. During the building process we added numerous custom features and Nick always took the time to understand exactly what we wanted. Once Nick was even able to save us approximately $5000 on one of our desired features. The people who visit our home continually comment on its beauty and are seemingly able to point out the details that make our home different from the others. My wife and I love our QB Home and we would definitely recommend working with Nick if you are ever interested in building.

QB Homes has proven to be one of the best relationships we have formed while purchasing our new home in Des Moines. While searching for potential homes in Des Moines, none of the builders had come close to the details Nick was putting into his homes. We made the decision to purchase a QB Home based on Nick’s ability to communicate with us on all of our needs and he never hesitated to respond with urgency and see that our questions were answered. What we like most about Nick is that he cares about his home buyers and the craftsmanship that goes into each home he builds. He may not be the biggest builder in DSM, but he sure has the attributes that we look for in a builder. Trustworthy, honest, hard working and an amazing skillset. We recommend QB Homes to anyone searching for their next home.

- Eric S., Urbandale, IA

We would like to sincerely thank QB Homes for building us such a beautiful home and making the experience positive and fun. Nick’s passion and excitement for building custom homes with quality construction and high end details made us comfortable from the start. He strives for excellence in all that he does and made the experience smooth and enjoyable. He turned our pictures and ideas into reality and gave us wonderful advice when needed. Nick was always quick to answer any of our questions and kept our budget in mind. His daily on-site supervision allowed him to stay on top of the work completed at our house and to oversee things with a refined attention to detail. We couldn’t be happier in our new custom home from QB Homes and will be giving our recommendations for years to come. The professionalism, knowledge, and accessibility we received from QB Homes is top notch!
