What our clients say about us

“We recommend Mr. Schmitke and Ocean Green Homes without reservation to anyone looking for a builder who works with intergrity to produce a quality product.”

“I would like to assure you of my confidence with Ocean Green Homes. The construction is excellent and the finishing touches are exemplary. Glenn Schmitke, the builder, was helpful and available, both through the buying process and afterwards. Deficiencies were completed in a timely manner. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a builder.”

“I have long valued the benefits of working with the craftsman builder rather than the larger companies. This was absolutely the case in this project. I knew you were on site, every day and supervising every step of the build and that was really important to me. A new build requires close supervision and you brought that to the project.

I must share that I have two close friends who are well versed in construction and when visiting, both conducted their inspections. Both were most impressed with the structural work and shared with me that the ‘hidden’ house was done exceptionally well and with fine materials. As a client, one has to trust the builder and I always felt you take that responsibility very seriously.

I can say with confidence that what sets you apart from many other builders is evident in the small touches and finishing that are done with such care and attention to detail.”

“We have been very satisfied with the quality of work and the final product which has resulted in our enjoyment of our new home. Mr. Schmitke gave careful attention to the project at every phase of development. He obviously has not only broad experience and a deep understanding of the building industry but is excellent in his handling of relationships.

Concerning the financial arrangements, we found Mr. Schmitke to be totally honorable and transparent. In any house building project there will always be unexpected and unavoidable changes that must be addressed. In our case, these were dealt with in a fair and equitable manner. He was amenable to our requests and sometimes suggested ideas from his experience which ultimately produced a better result than we originally anticipated and at reasonable cost.”

Building a house….who would have thought there was so much to consider!

The lot, the home design, the layout of every room, lighting, wiring, doors, windows, hardware, fixtures, kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, outside siding, gutters, roof, well you get the idea.

This is your personal home.  As such, there are lots of emotions, one experiences through each building stage.  All requiring much input so your builder can create the home of your dreams.

So as we see it, two very important things to consider when purchasing your new home.

Your builder and your builder’s contractors used.

First, Glenn our builder is without a doubt a builder one could only wish for!  Glenn works with you all the way through the process, so this house becomes your home, as planned.  Glenn handles every twist and turn exceptionally well.  Follows through with the promises and works with your on any challenge that comes up through the building process.  Glenn is fully involved in this new subdivision including living here.  Doesn’t get much better than this.

Second his contractors and suppliers are some of the best from what we have experienced.  Not only great at their profession but a pleasure to communicate with.

We would highly recommend Glenn of Ocean Green Homes Ltd.  Quality homes built, by a quality build who cares!

Re:  Our new home purchase

Dear Glenn,

We are writing this letter to inform you how thoroughly satisfied we are with our new home.

The total experience from start to finish was pleasant and exceeded our expectations.  In addition any problem that occurred was quickly resolved.

We have found that build quality and design to be exceptional to other builders of the same price point.  Lastly we found you went above and beyond to make us completely happy with our purchase and would recommend your homes to anyone!

Glenn Schmitke of Ocean Green Homes gained our confidence from the first moments we met.  His pride in quality construction, fine detailing, and workmanship were clearly evident, and that never changed throughout the building process.  We found him to be fair, honest, and forthright in all of his dealings and negotiations.  He constantly thought of ways to improve on details in all phases of construction , always showing a sincere desire for us to be happy and satisfied with both the liveability of the house design and the functionality of all components.

Overall, Glenn was genuinely concerned for the house to provide all it needed to become our home.  His knowledge, experience, and calm demeanor were apparent, no matter what the situation, and his passion for a job well done were unparalleled.  We have no reservations in recommending Ocean Green Homes to anyone searching for a beautiful, worry-free home in the most beautiful location imaginable.

After residing in Ocean View Terrace for a few months we re still impressed with our new home and the instantly obvious workmanship and detailing.

The area has been thoughtfully designed allowing home sites to enjoy the view and location unimpeded by a series of rooftops.

As you know, we were consulting with Ocean Green Homes and had planned to build again, however, after seeing the houses you built in Ocean View Terrace we decided to purchase and are very happy with our decision.

We are looking forward to landscaping in the spring and enjoy the feeling of nature that the area has to offer,.
