"Choosing to build your home with Brian Robards Custom Homes is a decision you will never regret. You can feel confident that Brian and his team will build your dream home while also ensuring the process is a smooth one — from design through move-in. BRCH
has mastered the art of building a custom home while involving the homeowner every step of the way.
Brian worked collaboratively with us from day one; he understood what we wanted as homeowners and as a result recommended several on-site design changes that proved
invaluable to us.
Brian takes great pride in building a quality house from top to bottom; using only quality materials, outstanding suppliers and meticulous craftsmen. Brian treated our home as if it were his own, uncompromising down to the smallest of details. And, he stands behind his product. Four years later, we know that Brian will respond to any question or concern we might have — no matter how minor.
Building a custom home can often be stressful and demanding, but we can honestly say
that was not the case with when building our home. Not only was our end result
extremely rewarding but the building process was truly fun. We love everything about our house and very proud to say that our builder was Brian Robards Custom Homes".
The Carpenters
"Building a dream home is a very personal thing. People have often asked us, would
you build with Brian Robards Custom Homes again? We always said that we would, but didn't think we would get the opportunity because we just loved the house we built with them. We now have that opportunity ... and are choosing Brian again.
Building your dream home with someone the first time is an act of faith. Choosing to do
so again is a deliberate act.
Brian was extremely careful with the build, paid attention to all the little things most people won't ever see in a house. The workmanship was of the highest quality, and he
has a great eye for details (we really appreciated his artistic insight). He earned our complete trust, dealing with us honestly and openly on the budget.
He and his wife, who manages the office, were easily approachable, accurate, and
understanding. Would we build again with Brian Robards Custom homes? We would,
and we are".
Drs. David and Renee Pinsky
"We feel fortunate to have been able to work with Brian. We completely developed approximately 4,000 square feet of lower level
space into an amazing area that included a “5 star” recreational area, an extraordinary wine room, bedroom, bath and due to
Brian’s innovative talents designed an “over the top” Christmas room that is not only unique, it is the show stopper of our beautiful home.
His attention to detail and not allowing us to make costly mistakes remains upper most in our minds.
Would absolutely recommend Brian for any project being considered!”

"I cannot imagine a house that Brian Robards would not be qualified to build.
From the most high end home to a simple kitchen remodel, you will not find someone who is more dedicated, focused, will pay more attention to detail, or more honest than Brian.
He is a delight to work with and takes personal pride in everything he does. Brian's staff of sub contractors have the same work
ethic and devotion to quality that he holds..and demands. To Brian, building a house is not just a job it is creating a home you will
love for a lifetime".

"I had talked to several builders before meeting Brian Robards of Brian Robards Custom Homes. I had my first meeting with Brian
and he was the most informative and knowledgeable builder that I spoken with. I was most impressed with Brian not only for being
a builder, but his skills when far beyond that. I did not have to deal with an architect or custom decorator with Brian, he knew how
to do it all.
One of the most important and commendable attributes of Brian is his ability to listen to his customer.
He offered exactly what I was looking for and his portfolio of the kitchens he had done was amazing. Knowing this I knew he
was the builder for me. The ease of having one person handle every detail for me was a huge bonus. The budget that was set was
exactly what we paid; and the time period he set was exactly as he promised. Every single person Brian had working in our home
could not be more professional or courteous and every single day the job site was cleaned up afterwards. The end result was a
kitchen that should be on the cover of a magazine!
I cannot say more good things about my experience with Brian and I will definitely be ready to call Brian Robards Custom Homes
for my next project".

"Dear Brian:
We want to thank you, your wife Jodi, and the entire personnel who worked under your direction for the excellent workmanship in
the extensive renovations made in our home. We had a vision for the renovations which reflected our European upbringing and are thankful that you respected and incorporated our ideas.
Not only you adapted to our taste for modernizing the bathroom and kitchen but you provided crucial modifications and great input
for the design and reconstruction of our home.
We always were comfortable asking questions and felt our input was always considered in the plan. We have received so many
compliments from our friends and family on the looks and craftsmanship of the renovations in the main floor and the basement
project. Now we are enjoying every day the outstanding final result of our collaboration.
We could not be happier. Again, many thanks".
Dr. Jose and Paloma Jalife
"We were extremely happy with every aspect of Brian Robards' work. We were impressed by his knowledge, skill, and expertise
during the design and construction of our home.
Brian was kind and patient when we had a lot of questions or had trouble deciding about things, and he has been very loyal about follow-up, even long beyond his "obligation" to us.
We also felt that Brian dealt with us honestly and with great integrity. Finally, working with Brian and Jodi was a real pleasure;
they are genuinely nice people.
We would build a home with Brian again in a heartbeat, and would recommend him enthusiastically and without reservation to any potential customer".
Fred and Kristen Moore
"We thought we knew everything about a house and what a luxury, high-end home should be, especially after going to so many
home shows and visiting with local, high name, luxury home builders. Then we met Brian Robards. Brian started with giving us
an education on craftsmanship and showed us firsthand what luxury should be in the building of a custom home. He then went
further when we chose his company to build our dream home, by building it with the care and attention that Michelangelo gave
to painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
Brian and, his wife and business partner, Jodi provided us with an amazing experience in building our dream home, and their commitment to excellence and customer service felt like staying at a five star resort.
They took care of everything and made sure that any and every detail was covered throughout the entire building process.
Today, we have one of the finest built homes in the world that is truly unique and magnificent; a home that is living and
breathing with quality craftsmanship and exceptional beauty. We’ve heard all the stories about the challenges of building a
home, and we are delighted to say that our experience with Brian and Jodi has been breathtakingly amazing.
Our next home will be a Brian Robards home, and we are looking forward to working with Brian and Jodi again on another
dream home".
Fidel and Nancy Galano
"Brian Robards and his teams are very focused on details and doing things right both from function and asthetics.
Not only is Brian a great craftsman himself, but he has really great ideas. We redid our entire first floor including kitchen, powder
room and mudroom. Although we worked with an architect for the big picture and a kitchen designer for details, we found Brian
often was the one who came up with solutions to the problems that stumped the rest of us.
Brian always took the time to meet with us to go over our selections, never rushed us and always explained why things had to be
done in a certain way. If he thought we were making a bad choice, he took the time to discuss with us our options and make sure we were making the decision that was truly best for us and our needs. Now that the project is done, we can see he was right every
time. If he felt things hadn’t been done right, they got fixed with no hassle to us.
Bottom line, Brian helped us make our home beautiful and unique. He created and improved designs, implemented with quality
and craftsmanship, and always was a professional".
Greg and Julie Miller
"The renovation of our home was quite extensive, involving nearly the entire house. We were somewhat anxious about choosing a contractor given the scope of the project. We heard a number of good things about Brian from local realtors, and upon meeting
Brian, we both were impressed by his knowledge and relaxed friendly manner.
The house turned out just as we had hoped, and we have been delighted with the work.
Visitors to our home, including friends with construction backgrounds, have routinely commented on the excellent quality of the
work, especially the beautiful finish carpentry. If we ever needed another builder in the future we would happily work with Brian
and his crew again".
Drs. Edward and Allison Kreske
"It was a true pleasure to work with the Brian Robards Custom Homes on our house renovation. Brian is straightforward, pleasant, low-key, easy to contact, readily available for consultation, and crisp in his follow-up. As the owner of the company, Brian takes
charge and is personally hands-on with the projects and his crew. We especially appreciated the fact that when Brian ran into the unexpected, he would find a modest way to address the issue. He simply didn’t allow small things to become big things and to
impede forward progress.
Brian and his wife Jodi set the tone for their crews. They were knowledgeable, personable and did exceptional quality work.
They paid attention to details in places we never would have seen, like making sure insulation was installed in every nook and
cranny. The subcontractors showed up when they said they were coming and always left the site clean at the day's end, respecting
that fact that we were living in our home during the renovation. These are the sorts of behaviors that make renovation a true
pleasure rather than a painful experience".

"We could not imagine a more thorough, reliable and honest builder than Brian Robards. He was in our corner every step of the
way and even now, 4 years later, he comes by at a moment’s notice.
He and his wife and partner, Jodi, are completely organized and work with the best craftsmen and suppliers.
Danny is a paraplegic who uses a wheelchair, so we had many extra challenges. Brian was on top of every issue, from our
elevator to turning radius concerns to counter and toe kick heights. By being so thorough, he saved us from making errors that
would have made the house less usable for Danny.
We recommend Brian wholeheartedly and without hesitation".
Danny and Lynn Heumann
"I've had the pleasure of working with Brian Robards on a number of projects, that range from creating new rooms to large,
extensive additions. Brian has always surprised & delighted me with his intense determination to create the vision we propose.
His insight and hands on approach make him so special.
He uses subcontractors that follow his dream to have no compromise results. Other builders I have worked with in the past seem to
fall short when compared to Brian's total package. The end result has always been beyond my expectations. Brian can handle any
level of home building and it has been a pleasure to experience it with him".
