"We had a great experience building our home with Elevate! No build is without issues and problems, but it’s how your builder addresses these issues and fixes them that makes the difference. Elevate was very transparent with the problems that we had and worked to get them resolved quickly and to our satisfaction. The whole team put in long hours to get our house complete ... they were flexible to our needs and wants, they actually listened, had very creative design suggestions, and worked hard to make sure our project kept moving along." - Marcus Mikkelsen
