About Quandt Built Homes

Knowledgeable, professional, attention to detail, patient, gifted craftsman, best subs, on site weekly, organized...I cannot say enough about the ability of Nick Quandt, owner of Quandt Built Homes, to help you bring your dream home together. He makes the process as painless as it could be and is beyond organized with schedules and draw requests. His carpenter heart will help you have unbelievable individual craftsmanship in your home. The lockers he created in our mudroom, built in cabinets around our fireplace, and original barn door in our downstairs family room are show pieces themselves, let alone the final product he helped us bring together and what is our new home. We love it.

The first time we stopped into a house built by Nick at Quandt Built 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!

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 Quandt Built Homes, we saw both the quality we desired and the 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 Quandt Built Homes.

Quandt Built 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 Quandt Built 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 Quandt Built Homes to anyone searching for their next home.

We couldn’t be happier in our new custom home from Quandt Built Homes and will be giving our recommendations for years to come. The professionalism, knowledge, and accessibility we received is top notch!

We can’t thank Nick Quandt (Quandt Built Homes) enough for building our dream home. From start to finish, Nick was organized, prompt, knowledgeable, honest and transparent. His attention to detail, quality and craftsmanship are bar none. Nick is an extremely hard worker and always puts his customer first. From the minute we stepped into one of the homes that Nick built, we just knew that we wanted him to be our builder.

Nick went over and above from the very beginning. We were very impressed with how much detail he put into his bid so that we understood exactly what we would be getting. He attended every selection meeting we had and always gave great suggestions and ideas to help guide us along the way. His management style and organization skills made the made the entire process go so smoothly, which took all the stress out.

There are many things that set Quandt Built Homes above the rest, but it was the little things that stood out to us the most. He always made himself available for us and always listened to our ideas. He added the perfect touches to our house so that it felt like HOME. Many times we would send him an inspiration picture and he would turn our ideas into something way better than we could have imagined. He took the time to pour a slab of concrete for our kids to put their handprints in our driveway. He also built custom step-stools under our kid’s bathroom vanity so they could reach the sinks. These are just a couple of examples.

We are absolutely in love with our home! If you are looking for someone to build your dream home, we promise you won’t be disappointed with Quandt Built Homes! Thank you, Nick!!

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 Quandt Built Home. We were immediately impressed by the excellent curb appeal and how it was competitively priced. The quality of the 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 Quandt Built 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 Quandt Built Home and we would definitely recommend working with Nick if you are ever interested in building.

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!
