"After buying a speck home from a different builder, we were hesitant to build with anyone. However, once we went to a few open houses and talked with Lisa and Chris, not only did we fall in love with Sage Homes, but with them. The building process was so easy and so much fun! We actually got to "help" put together our dream home. We love the area in which we chose to build. We have that "out of city" feel but still in town. Our daughter has room to play and ride her bike. We have neighbors but aren't right on top of anyone. It felt like home immediately! We love our home and have nothing but great things to say about Sage."

"From the first time we met with Chris & Lisa, we knew we wanted to build with Sage Homes. The idea of building can be a bit overwhelming with all the decisions to make, but Chris & Lisa made the whole process easy with their knowledge & expertise. The quality and craftsmanship that go into their homes is second to none. We were always getting compliments. Someone was always available whether we had questions or concerns. Without a doubt we would build with Sage again. Thank you for a beautiful home for us to raise our family in."
Jesse, Steph, Kason & Kodi VanderWal
"We absolutely LOVE the house and can't believe how easy you all made this process! If I could say "thank you" a billion times, I would... But that would make a very long email :)"

"This has been such an awesome experience, and I would definitely build with Sage 100 times over again."
Alli & Mike
"WE LOVE OUR NEW HOME. Thanks so much for being with us throughout the process. We are beyond grateful that we chose Sage for our forever Iowa home!
The doormat was the perfect Welcome Home gift as well."

"I had a feeling Sage Homes would be the right decision for us after two families recommended them to us on the same day. At that point, we were very close to selecting another builder but were hesitant for several reasons.
I contacted Sage Homes at 10 p.m. on a Sunday and got a response right away — and the rest is history! Sage Homes has impressed us from the very beginning. They're wonderful communicators and very responsive, and I appreciate that they clearly understand this is what clients expect and deserve when investing in such an important purchase!
The design process was really enjoyable — working one-on-one with Chris and the team and making changes / brainstorming on the spot was one of the most fun parts of our experience. Chris and Kristy were so knowledgable, courteous and down-to-earth. We had very positive experiences with all the vendors and subcontractors. Corwin and Emily were super helpful, professional and collaborative!
We absolutely LOVE our house — it's more beautiful than we could've ever imagined. Beautiful, but also well built, and there were no unexpected charges along the way. Everyone we worked with was always patient with our questions and concerns throughout the process as well.
We've been singing Sage's praises throughout our entire experience and would definitely choose to build with them again. Thanks for everything, Sage!"

When I decided to build, I started going to open houses and talking to many people about the experiences that they had with their builders, talking with builders to get a feel for if they could provide me with the home that I was looking for. When I talked with Kristy for the first time, her answers to almost all of my questions checked the YES box. I also knew several who had built with Sage and all the gave them very high marks.
Meeting with Chris was an amazing experience as he was able to design the house by listening to all of my concerns, wants, and don't wants. He offered options for things that I did not even know existed (grocery door!). Ultimately, the final design had everything that I wanted and more.
Throughout the process, Chris and Kristy we very upfront with me about the challenges of the building during the pandemic and the supply shortages. Worst-case scenarios were presented to me but thankfully those were not the final outcome. They were very fair, responsive, and flexible, and we mutually agreed to navigate these difficult times together. I understood that Chris had a business to run and they understood that wanted a house but had limits to what I could do as well.
The build process was amazing! Tyler did an amazing job of keeping the house on track and answering my questions. Yes, there were delays but I was kept informed throughout the entire process. Many of the things were out of their control. If there was an issue that presented, the team was quick to resolve the issue and ensure that I was satisfied with the outcome.
The product selection and design process was so much fun. While I knew what I wanted, Emily was able to really bring that feeling of home to my new house. Things that would add personal touches that I look at now and think - I am SO GLAD that I did that! When I was contemplating something but having a hard time visualizing it, she had photos to help with the process. I really valued your eye and design suggestions because she was able to see what my vision was.
Post sale, their team of people is still here for me. Josh and his team have been amazing when I had questions or issues. I could not be happier with my selection of builders and would encourage anyone to sit down and have a conversation with Sage. I doubt you will walk away disappointed. The day you move into your home, you are going to feel like you have a few new family members. Thank you Sage! Truly - what you do is unique and so special.
"We were just talking tonight about how much we love our Sage (Rosewood plan) home. We couldn't be happier and we've proudly showed off our home to friends, family and neighbors. We have nothing but positive comments about the whole building experience. Thank you and the whole Sage team for helping our dream come true!"
Chris & Katy
"Continue to do everything you do!"
Dana & Michelle
"Sage was a wonderful builder to work with. The whole team is truly committed to quality, which is evident by the fact that their standard home packages already include what many builders would consider 'upgrades.'
Any issues were addressed right away, and Sage was very transparent about the building process. We really enjoyed working with Sage on our dream home, and would recommend them to friends and family!"
Becca & AJ Vickroy
"We loved the weekly update emails keeping us informed on what was going on that week at our home. The whole team was great, and we enjoyed working with everyone."
Gregg & Ashley
Our home built with Sage Homes is the perfect fit for our family. We had ideas on a floor plan we would like to build and in meeting with Chris; he paired our ideas with one of his existing plans. The finished home has all we wanted and more, with friends and visitors complimenting on the craftsmanship and livability. Emily, Kristy, and the Sage Team were professional and courteous through a challenging pandemic build. The trades crews on-site were second-to-none. We believe this to be our forever home, but if we would find ourselves building again, without a doubt, we would use Sage Homes.
