Great company  to work with.  Lera has been so wonderful, she is so detailed  and helpful  with  all our design needs.

The Embarq team made our dreams come true with our custom home build! They had great design ideas to make sure that our home would fit our lifestyle and function for our family! We had never built a custom home before and Embarq Signature Homes did a fantastic job of guiding us through the process and making us feel like their top priority!

We’re in the middle of our custom build with Embarq and since the beginning it has been a wonderful experience! They are always quick to respond and make you feel like their priority. They care about your needs and wants and you aren’t just “another” home they built. Very thankful for all they’ve done so far!

Embarq is a wonderful team to work with! Lera is fantastic at paying attention to details and pulling the whole project together from start to finish. We truly enjoy working with them at Wolfgang Studio. Would recommend for your building needs!

Steph and her team have hundreds of builds under their belt and have incredible insight into trends and efficient home building.  What sets Embarq apart from others is their transparency.  As a new construction buyer, I never really know where and how the builder is spending my purchase price.  Steph is right upfront showing each of the lines of the costs of the project and allowed the buyer to feel completely in control of their project budget.  Her team also does an amazing job communicating the stages of construction and any supply or contractor delays as soon as she knows.  Check out other builders, but I am sure you will come back to Embarq every time!

As an exteriors contractor I have personally worked with Embarq’s superintendent staff on multiple new construction builds over the years. An incredibly important yet under appreciated factor when considering a builder is the relationships their staff has with their subcontracted tradespeople, Brian S. and staff team members foster these relationships and develop long standing lines of communication allowing us as subs to perform our related tasks with efficiency and ease. Happy subs happy house! You will definitely find this here.

I had the pleasure of working with Steph on building a custom home and it was an amazing experience!  I didn’t chose a house plan from a list, Steph listened to what I wanted and we built a truly custom home together.  From what I wanted, Steph put together a plan and many of her individual ideas are what made my home incredible.   During the building process I was included in everything.  We went on site to many of the vendors to see what was going in my home and had a chance to see the design and details of everything before it was purchased and made custom for me.   Working with Steph you are building a home together, rather than have a home built for you. It was an absolute privilege and if I ever build another home, Steph Reed will be my first and only choice.
