If I was to build a new home today, I'd choose to work with Colony. No questions about it. Bill Taylor is the builder and he is not a "production builder" like Spinell or Hultquist and I've seen the resale homes and their values several years after the original owner lists them for sale and I've been very impressed on how well they hold value and appreciate and how the homes still show beautifully where other newer homes show very worn out because of the low quality products used. Also, I'm a huge fan of craftsman style homes and you'll see a lot of those details in the homes Colony has built!
Tami Taylor is the listing agent and also co-owns One Of Kind Design where most of the interior selections are chosen for your new Colony Home and she's great to work with also. I've found that Colony gives very generous allowances for your cabinetry, flooring, plumbing, lighting, etc. and that makes a huge difference in the end product of your home! A lot of builders you will find will nickle and dime you with upgrades that you pay out of pocket and you won't know that until you get into choosing your materials and then you may be tempted to pick low grade materials just so you don't go over budget.
Most people ask me if I'm allowed to represent them or do they just go to the builder. I love representing new construction clients and I do my best to guide you through the process and bring up any items that you may not have thought about but should be discussed and negotiated prior to making an offer on your new home! There are so many decisions from the lot you choose and how the house sits on the lot to the layout of the lot and what walls and fixtures can be moved to customize your home. The great thing about purchasing from Colony Builders is that you qualify for a home just like you do a resale home so you don't have to go through the difficult process of obtaining construction financing. If you'd like to know what builders I have been less than pleased with, feel free to call me at 907-317-1992 and I'm more than happy to discuss that with you! I'll even show you one of "those" homes and then take you to a Colony build and show you the difference.
Currently Colony is building in Resolution Pointe and Brookwood in Anchorage and you can find more information about their floorplans at http://www.colonybuildersak.com/.
