Our Customers


We could not have asked for a better experience building with Lakemist Homes. During one of the most challenging times to build a home with increasing material costs and supply chain issues, Lakemist did an incredible job of keeping costs down and staying ahead of the supply chain issues so that we were able to close even earlier than expected.Our construction manager was great! He was in constant communication with us keeping us updated of our progress and guiding us through each phase of construction. He was accommodating and patient with all of our questions and requests. No build process goes 100% smoothly, but the entire team at Lakemist did a great job of keeping us updated as issues arose. They were honest and transparent if they ran into a problem and efficient and quick to address them. Nothing but positive things to say about the entire team at Lakemist and we can’t thank them enough for building our beautiful home!

The Strouds

Lakemist homes have made my dream come true. Great home building experience from initial visit to finish. Whole team ( Aaron, Bobby and Christy and Tommy )were conscientious, reliable, knowledgeable, trust-worthy. professional, caring, and always available. Each and everyone went above and beyond. We can’t thank them enough. Lakemist Homes is one of the best!

Jemee Kathrotiya

I am happy to recommend Lakemist homes as a custom builder. They took the time to explain the process to my clients. They were also available to answer all of our questions. My clients built during a labor/housing and supply shortage. That in itself adds many challenges, however, the builder was prepared and we had little to no setbacks. The work site was neat, the inspector was impressed with the build and my clients love their new home! I can’t wait to bring another client to Aaron and his team! They set themselves above the rest!

Jennifer Hazlett

We are so thankful for Aaron and the team. They patiently guided us through several ups and downs in a challenging year to build and delivered a beautiful home ahead of schedule. We are looking forward to making many happy memories in our dream home.

Lauren Penwell

The Lakemist team raises the bar for home builders. We love the home that they built for us and could not be happier with the building process. They excel in communication to make a house they are building the home that you are dreaming about.

The Bourgeois Family

Lakemist Homes not only sold us a house, they sold us a home. When we wanted to change a room to make a larger space for my husband’s art studio, they accomplished the remodel quickly. We are incredibly happy with our home and our experience with Lakemist Homes.

The Cox Family

We could not have been happier with the whole experience from the assistance and advice with selecting a lot, the custom design of the home and the professionalism and personal interaction during the build. Everyone from the president of the company to the foreman assigned to our project was actively engaged in the project and design and made us feel like we were their number 1 priority. 4 years later we continue to love our home and appreciate the craftsmanship and quality more and more. The entire experience from start to finish was a good one and Lakemist was a pleasure to work with. We would build with Lakemist again without hesitation.

The Fords

While we are in the very beginning stages of pondering the possibility of building with a private builder, I just had to say how thankful I am for Aaron! Every email I have sent him he has answered and has been very helpful. I just wanted to say Thanks, because I am sure everyone knows how hard it is to get anyone to respond to an email if you have not made a solid commitment with them. So Thank you Aaron for honestly answering my questions and not expecting anything in return. We appreciate your insight and help. If we can get the lot/land that we desire and things work out, please know you will be our first contact for building our dream home! Thanks again!!!

The Gerrings

…being a part of every decision along the way – really makes this house feel like OUR HOME.

The Hern Family

When we decided to build our home, we were warned by some it would be difficult and stressful. It was neither. Working with Lakemist was a pleasure. They definitely take pride in the homes they build. Our home is everything we hoped it would be and more.

The Kraus Family

Our experience with Lakemist Homes was nothing short of exceptional. One of the most enjoyable aspects of our build that impressed us the most is the care and pride that Jim and Barbara took in the construction of our home. They did not build just another house; they built our home as though they would be living in it with their own family. There was no detail too small for them and no request that was too big; everything they did for us reflects the highest quality workmanship and their service levels were second to none as they accommodated every request we made without exception. And, in the end, we became part of a great community!

The Larson Family

Class and quality is what you can expect if you decide to work with Lakemist. Choosing them for our custom home was the best decision we made. Beginning to end and now over a year after we’ve moved in they have been the same consistent, caring, responsive and dedicated team you can imagine. As a real estate professional I can tell you they operate with integrity and as a homeowner they truly care and treat you like family!

The Maher Family

We would highly recommend this builder to our friends and relatives. Support after the sale is key and we could not be more pleased with the quality of home built. VERY satisfied with this Builder.

The McCarter Family

Cannot say enough good things about Lakemist Homes! We have built 6 new construction homes with various builders over time and our experience with Lakemist was the best. Everyone was transparent and went above and beyond to make our dream a reality. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Lakemist and would build another home with them in a heart beat!

The Morgan’s

Lakemist Homes produces a superior product. This is the third home we have had built and the fit and finish of our home is second to none. My wife and I highly recommend the Lakemist Team.

The Prowlers

When friends hear we’ve built our own home, they groan and ask us how we survived. When we tell them about our great experience from Day 1 to present day – AFTER we’ve closed – they simply can’t believe it. And frankly, neither can we. Never in a million years did I think I’d feel compelled to write a note like this after our home was completed, and the fact that I am really says something.

The Psaros Family

The Feldman family walked us through the process step-by-step and delivered on a house we love! Thanks Lakemist!
