2014 Reggie Award

2013 & 2014 Reggie Award of Excellence












Dear Semler Homes,

We had been in the market to buy a home. After months of looking at existing houses for sale, we decided the time was right to purchase a newly constructed home. Not knowing a transom from a toe plate, we felt a little lost and out of our element. Then we found Semler Homes. A family run company, Semler Homes excelled in providing a personal, hands on, and quality focused approach to our home construction. Continually going above and beyond what reasonably should be expected from a home contractor, Jason and Pete Semler guided us throughout the construction process, from initial design through final inspection. They made us more than just their clients; we became partners in developing and designing a home that fit our needs as well as our budget. When one finds the president of the company personally overseeing the construction site, you know you’ve stumbled onto something special.

There are a lot of good home builders; Semler is a great one!

Dear Semler Homes,

I don’t typically communicate with the “sellers” of a property after a home inspection but I wanted to give you some feedback after my time inspecting the home you built.

The house is just excellent, very very nicely built with an attention to detail and pride in craftsmanship that I unfortunately seldom see. You’ve used a number of good but simple products but they look so much better than your competition who often times use the same products but with a shoulder-shrug mentality when it comes to installation quality. You’ve also added a number of upgrades that I also seldom see in this price range including spray foamed rims, a utility sink in the basement, an air-exchanger, custom cabinets, floor trusses, upgraded light fixtures, knockdown ceilings, upgraded railing, completely rocked garage, very good quality mechanical systems and a 2-10 warranty just to name a few. You’ve stuck to the basics better than most I’ve seen and you’re building a very good quality product which is a great value for your Clients.

Nicely done to you Semler Homes, it’s refreshing to see someone who cares about what they do especially in a very very difficult market/economy. It was a pleasure to inspect this home. Good luck to you!

Take care

Dear Semler Homes,

Thank you for everything you did for us in building our new home. Everything was great and on time. Although we still have a lot of work to do to make the home “ours,” we are loving it. Thanks again!

Pete Semler is absolutely wonderful to work with. This was our first home and we ended up building new because the price was right. We didn’t have a single thing go wrong – other than a couple of very minor glitches that Pete fixed immediatley. In fact, he found most of the glitches himself. We heard horror stories about building a house, but with Semler homes it was a piece of cake. Everything fell into place perfectly!

Dear Semler Homes,

I had a customer stop in today to get new counter tops and look at new kitchen flooring. They built with Semler homes and are still happier than ever in their home 20 years later. I just wanted to share with you. Thank you for being such a wonderful builder!

Pete Semler & Jason Semler are amazing to work with. This was our first time buying a home, and we decided to build. They are very personable, professional, and so quick at responding to any questions or concerns we had. We hear nightmare stories about builders, and are so glad that we did our research and went with Semler Homes. We love our new place and could not be more pleased with the process! Thank you Semler Homes!

Dear Semler Homes,

We love our home. It is well-built, beautiful, and simply relaxing to be in – really a dream home. We had never built a custom home before, and we really appreciated your guidance – and your abundance of patience – throughout the building process. We just love the details and special touches you added to our house, and we love that you found ways to give us what we wanted. Everything from the simply incredible master bathroom to the well-lit, spacious kitchen just add up to make our house absolutely perfect. Thank you.

Semler homes is truly one of Minnesota’s top notch builders! I sold my best friend a model home and they love it! When we had the walk through before closing it was one of the most perfect new construction walk throughs I have ever been on!! ( and I’m picky)

Thank you Semler Homes!!

We have been so pleased with our new Semler Home. From construction through the closing process and beyond, the Semler Homes team has done a great job of paying attention to details, being timely with their construction process, and making sure to provide clear answers to our questions. We could not be happier with how our home has turned out!

Dear Semler Homes,

Thank you for tearing down our moldy old cabin and giving us an incredible lake home in its place! The extra touches that seem to be standard for Semler really contribute to making our home warm and comfortable, and also a feast for the eyes. The woodwork is amazing . . . who expects cove molding in their laundry room? We moved in yesterday and spent our first night there, and we couldn’t be happier. We know that our project came with its own set of challenges, and we are grateful for Pete Semler’s experience and guidance through the process. Semler Homes was highly recommended to us by realtors we know and trust, and we in turn recommend Semler Homes without hesitation.

Dear Semler Homes,

Words cannot describe how happy we are with our newly built Semler Home. Everyone told me to “watch out” for builders when you are building your home, but Semler Homes proved them all wrong. They were willing to work with us in our unique situation and build us a beautiful home that was in our price range. They built it in a very timely matter knowing our situation and made everything perfect. There were very few things we needed correcting upon moving in- and ALL were corrected without any issue within days! I am so impressed with them and how our house turned out. We have been recommending them to everyone and pushing my friends to get the model home in our neighborhood! We so desperately needed a bigger house for my growing daycare business, and Semler Homes made all our dreams come true. Pete Semler was very friendly during the pre-construction meeting and made us feel like our individual house was important- regardless of how many homes they were currently building. We are so satisfied with how everything turned out– We will always choose and recommend Semler Homes as the best home builder!!

Dear Semler Homes,

My wife and I were referred to Semler homes by our family members. We listed our town home for sale with Jason Semler in January 2014. From the beginning Jason was a true professional and always kept us informed on what to expect, why to expect it and was always accurate with his information. When we were house shopping Jason always respected our budget and requests. After viewing multiple homes (and doing our previous research on other builders) we decided to buy one of Semler Homes model homes. We have been in our new home for 5 months and could not be happier! The quality of craftsmanship provided is second to none. For this reason, we are the 3rd Semler Home purchased by members of our family. We are not planning on moving anytime soon but if we do, I can say with confidence that we would use Jason to sell our home, and buy our next home from him as well.

Thank you!

Dear Semler Homes,

Thank you so much for all of your help during our build! We had a GREAT experience and love our new home! Thank you for all your hard work!

Special note to Patty: Thank you so much for all your help through our build! Without fail any time we had a question or concern you had the situation (and answer!) under control. You really made the process 1000x’s easier. Semler Homes is lucky to have you! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!

Dear Semler Homes,

I just wanted to take a minute and give credit where credit is due. Amy and I had the good fortune to do our walk through with Mike today. We couldn’t be more excited to finally have this house as ours. This experience for us has been nothing but exceptional. From the first contact I made to Jason, through the pre-design, purchase agreement, meeting with Pete, meeting with the design sub-contractors, working with Steve, walking through with Mike, and interacting with you, the entire process and progression has gone flawlessly. I have been in the construction industry for 20+ years in various roles from labor to management and I have been extremely comfortable with Semler Homes the entire way. The quality of construction, the design of the home, and the people has been superior in service and excellence. Words cannot express our gratitude for the professionalism and the courteous and timely responses we have received from all members of the Semler team including the design subcontractors.
Thank you for again for making our experience with Semler Homes so positive. Your company will come highly recommended from us.

Dear Semler Homes,

The journey to build a new home was terrifying to us after living in our past home for 31 years but we have been blessed to have had our 2nd home built by you!!

You should be so proud of the “remarkable” home building company that you have grown over the years! Everyone on your team is amazing and talented and should be complimented on so many levels!

We have enjoyed the new home building journey and we will cherish and love this new home you have built for us!
