Robin and Ken and Laura,

I want to say thank you for the gift basket you left for us. It was such a real welcome home sight on the front porch and a true treat and surprise!

We are more than thankful and blessed to be in our home and it truly feels like we are home at our tiny lake front piece of paradise.

We all made it! Paul and I really love our home here and are very pleased overall. Thanks for helping us to realize and maximize the square footage and functionality for how we want to live.

Best wishes in all your future projects!

As we are about to celebrate our first anniversary in our new home we are happy that we chose Ken Broadwater as our builder. It is a high quality home, strong enough to survive an earthquake when the foundation was set and a severe wind storm shortly after we moved in. This is our “dream” retirement home. Working with Ken,we saw our wishes materialize. We are enjoying the special features we wanted and the additional ones suggested by Ken. He also took care of the small problems that can develop in any new home. We would highly recommend Ken Broadwater Homes.

Everyone at Ken Broadwater Homes was so pleasant and helpful when my husband and I–two newly-weds–went through the process of building/buying our first home. From our first initial meeting with Ken and Laura, to every vendor they connected us with, everything went well and we were and still are, going on three years later! so pleased with both the quality of the craftsmanship and the quality/character of their people. We would and have recommend Ken Broadwater Homes to anyone who’s looking to build a home.

Blake and Bridget Neace

After meeting Ken and Laura Broadwater years ago at a home show when we first starting talking about building, we knew there was no one else we’d trust to do the job right. Seven years later when we were finally ready to build, it was a joy to begin the process with Ken, who had become a friend over our years of emailing back and forth, giving updates, etc. Ken made the process clear, walked us through every step, adapted house plans, answered every question and we had MANY, and was patient with us. Every subcontractor to whom we were connected was helpful, kind, trustworthy, and did solid work. Even the mortgage and wholesale lighting store contacts whom Ken had recommended were incredibly helpful. Ken was always up front with us, was thorough, and made sure things were done right. There is no cutting corners with Ken Broadwater Homes. Ken and his team are ethical, honest, and have the utmost integrity. Since the company is Ken’s, we didn’t have to deal with a foreman who didn’t have a vested interest in the final product. Ken’s name, so to speak, is on the homes he builds, which makes him all the more determined to produce an incredible finished product and a happy customer. He was our go-to person for everything, and we are so grateful to have had a direct connection to our builder and the owner of the company! We moved into our new house in February 2014 almost 6 months ago, and we still love it. We would refer Ken Broadwater Homes to anyone and we have!

Paul & Christina Garland

Residing in Newport News and wanting to build our home in the Shenandoah Valley could have been very stressful. We are thankful that Ken decided to build for us outside of his normal boundaries to build. After meeting with Ken and discussing our options, we knew that Ken would have complete oversight of this project. Ken was very helpful in the planning stage and the building process. Everyone we went to, to pick out custom items were very pleasant and helpful. He kept us informed along the way. After being in our home for eleven months, Ken was very prompt in fixing a few items. His team and their craftsmanship was excellent. We highly recommend Ken to build for you.

Calvin & Connie Beverly

This is our second home we have built with Ken Broadwater Homes and we love this one even more than we loved the first one. Ken is a customer oriented builder who truly does “listen” to his clients. He aligns himself with great subcontractors who are courteous and pleasant to work with. If something does need to be “tweaked” he makes it happen in a timely matter to meet his customers wants and needs. We really enjoy working with Ken because we take pride in our home and so does he.

I can not say enough good things about Ken Broadwater Homes!! They were an answer to my prayers! My husband and I wanted to build a home, and we heard nothing but horror stories from other people who had been through the process before. Niether one of had ever done this or even had ever gotten a loan from the bank before, It was a very scarey and overwhelming thought! But when i met the Broadwaters, They made us so comfortable and I knew we were in good hands. They helped us through every step of the way, they figured out how to give us what we wanted while staying in our budget. My husband was really impressed with craftsmenship of our home. He is in construction, so he was looking out. They really made this a wonderful experience for us and gave us our dream home! A wonderful family oriented company that really care about giving you a quality product. We absolutely LOVE our home!!!
