  • Pat & Mike Shouse, Eldridge, IA

    "We have built (6) homes in our lifetime, and Mike Jasper is the first builder we would use again. This project came in on-time and very close to the budgeted quote. When most others over-promise and under-deliver... it is refreshing to be able to trust the person responsible for creating your dream home at a price you can afford."

  • The Youmans Family, Bettendorf, IA

    "We love our home by Definitive Builders! It is the perfect blend of quality workmanship and understated elegance in design. It is Mike Jasper’s attention to detail that continues to impress us day after day. To look up and see a beautifully crafted tray ceiling, or a striking light fixture is such a joy. We did a custom build out of our basement, and our vision for that space came to life through the work of Mike and his team. The open floor plan (both on the main level and in the basement) provides wonderful opportunities for spending time together as a family and entertaining. Our home is a place of comfort, efficiency, and beauty. Thanks, Mike!”

  • Ron & Bev Schrader, Blue Grass, IA

    "Thank you for a wonderful home building experience. We knew after our first meeting that you would listen and would accommodate and incorporate our ideas into the design you created for us. Your ideas regarding the active dormer, meeting our desire for as much natural light as possible, incorporating our zero entry needs, the covered deck with the coffered ceilings, etc. are all adding to the enjoyment we are taking in the home now. Your execution of the design flowed beautifully from one sub contractor to another resulting in quality and timely construction. Our new neighbors join us in thanking you for keeping the building site picked up and free of debris. We so appreciated your guidance and honesty; your patience with our discussions and questions, your immediate responses and call backs when we had concerns, your willingness to research different ideas and products and your willingness to allow us to use our personal talents and resources to make the home uniquely our own. Thank you for a beautiful home and the enjoyment we feel each day living it."

    "Building a home was one of the biggest decisions of our lives. We are so glad that we had Mike building for us. Home building can be a long and boring process but Mike made it fun and a great experience for us. Throughout the process he was always patient, accessible and responsive. Always open to any change we wanted throughout the build process. He would provide us timely status updates and meet with us frequently at the site to show the progress. Mike is very passionate and more importantly very honest about his work. He and his whole team worked hard to finish the project earlier than estimated without compromising the quality. It’s amazing to see how he took our ideas about house from a paper and build us our dream home. Each aspect of the house is exactly how we had imagined. He understood all our ideas and gave us a home we feel proud about. We have only been in our new home for a month and we love it. The quality of the work is remarkable. We couldn't have been happier. He is still in touch with us in regards to our needs even after we have moved in. That is really admirable. If ever we build again we would choose Mike. Thank you Mike, for a beautiful home!"

It feels more special as we were allowed to express our ideas and how they were transformed into reality. It was great working with you and getting to know you. Wish you many more successes."
