What our customers are saying about KRM.

Marcy and I just want to say a huge thank you for the awesome kitchen renovation!  To be honest, we’ve had some bad experiences with contractors in the past, so we are always a little nervous, but we could not have been more impressed with everything you guys did.  I’m sure in your world, this was a small project, but to us you made us feel like we were the most important client you had.  Customer service is very important to us and you exceeded our expectations.  Every single time we called you answered and you kept us informed all along the way.  More importantly, you treated our entire family with respect and were patient with us during the process.  You were able to take us saying “we wanted to knock down a wall” and not having a clue what else we wanted, to drawing up a plan that was perfect!  Marcy and I both commented at the end of the project that we were going to miss seeing you guys around!

 

We sincerely thank you for everything and hope you’ll pass this along to your respective bosses.  You’ve certainly made a big impression with us!

We had looked at many builders in the Des Moines area. We consistently found KRM homes to be well put together and detail oriented. We met with Kirk to discuss our thoughts on building a home with his company. He was always respectful and listened to our ideas. He always kept us in mind during the process and made it a very personal experience. Working with the KRM team could not have been any better. They always listened to us and never told us "no...we can't do that". We always saw the quality in our building process that we expected. They were always available to answer questions and address concerns. Someone asked us if we would go through this stressful process again....my response, "Only with this builder...no one else". We ended up with a house that is more than we ever expected. They have also been attentive to any warranty issues that have popped up.

KRM was absolutely wonderful to work with. Building a new home can be one of the most stressful undertakings, but Kirk, Rich, Audrey, Brandon and countless others at KRM made the process so smooth and effortless...it was actually enjoyable! They were extremely prompt at delivering updates, completing tasks and repairs, and we felt like we were in good hands from start to finish. Subcontractors were all top-notch and the quality of their work sets them apart from the competition. We underwent this process with three young children under the age of 6....and all 5 of us would agree that the final product exceeded our expectations. The projected build-time and the pricing estimates were fair and transparent. Kirk met with us personally throughout the process to reassure us that everything was going well and to make sure we were comfortable with every step along the way. Truly a great experience from start to finish, we would build with KRM again without any hesitation!

We constructed a custom house with KRM Development LLC. Kirk, Audrey, Rich are amazing to work with. Kirk paid very close attention to all our requirements (including vaastu), prior to creating floor plans. Once we agreed on the floor plan and the price, the entire process went by very smoothly. The project was delivered on time, and on budget. KRM involved us in every stage of the construction process. Audrey and Rich helped us pick wooden floors, stone colors, lighting fixtures and faucets that go very well with the interior colors. Audrey, went on a shopping sphere to find us ceiling fans that will work well with rest of our choices.

 

Everyone at KRM was extremely patient with us. As first time home buyers, we had lot of questions and concerns. All our questions and concerns were answered/resolved in a timely manner. Rich is amazing to work with. He met with us multiple times to walk us thru various stages of the construction process. We really had such an amazing experience that, after closing the house, we missed seeing Rich and Audrey. We really made some good friends at KRM, and if we ever have to build another home, KRM will be our only choice.

~ Pavan and Durga

We built a house with KRM. We were happy with the help we received in the process. Audrey was very helpful and patience assisting us to pick out colors, finishes, etc. When problems did arise, they were always handled quickly and professionally. We were really happy with the finished house. Also, thanks to Rich for all his help.

~ Steve and Jan

Everything went about as smoothly as possible throughout the building process. We are very happy with the finished project and when something covered under warranty has needed work they have been quick to get moving on the fix.

~ Adam and Stephanie

Our building experience with KRM was outstanding. We met with them after seeing one of their model homes and then sat down to see about customizing it. Everything was straight-forward, professional, and very well communicated. We loved how they would sit down with us and go over our plans and budgets, and then show us options that allowed us to meet our goals. If we had questions, they would offer suggestions, or put us in touch with someone that could assist us. Once the plans were in place, the building process was very slick since they used an online tool to help communicate our choices and selections with the work crews. We could keep track of progress and felt welcome to ask questions, visit the job site and the crew was fantastic about getting back to you if you ever needed them.

 

We would definitely recommend KRM to others, and if we ever build another house, I will be using KRM again!

~ Chris and Angela

Thank you for building a home that we found to be the PERFECT fit for us. We can tell you put a lot of hard work into the house - all of our friends & family are very impressed with the craftsmanship & details throughout the house.

~ Pat and Jess

Thank you so much for your time while building our home! All of you were so helpful, kind and patient with all of our questions. KRM is amazing and we will highly recommend you!

~ Scott and Lisa

We just wanted to thank you for the beautiful house you built us! We get so many compliments and we are enjoying our home immensely!

~ John and Michelle

KRM Development, LLC constructed our new residence. The house was completed in a very timely manner. Overall quality is good because construction workers were experienced. The project was enjoyable because all the company personnel were timely in their responses to questions and very helpful in the house design and selection process. We would not hesitate to use KRM Development, LLC again.

~ Brad and Sharon

May of 2013 I moved into my first house. I never dreamed of being able to build my first house, but Kirk and everyone at KRM Development showed me it was a possibility. From the beginning of the process to the end, everyone I worked with at KRM Development was very helpful and accommodating to my requests and questions-helping me stay in my budget and making my selections. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I love my new home more and more every day. It has truly been a dream come true for me and KRM Development helped make that dream come true. I look forward to working with them again in the future when I start a family and need a bigger house!

~ Abbie

Always loved the quality and attention to detail in KRM homes, just recently got the opportunity to work with them on a design and build for one of their offices, great staff !! open to suggestion and very humble. Can’t wait to work with them again.

~ Pete, IMB Railing

Thank you so much for your time & commitment to building our dream home!!!

~ Nick and Dani

KRM delivered a customized high quality home. They use high quality products and reputable contractors. Staff goes the extra effort to make sure their clients get what they want and like what they get. All concerns, questions, and issues were resolved quickly and professionally. I would recommend their company.

~ Kami and Mark

We spent a good amount of time going to open houses within our price point, searching for the right builder for our new home. When we went through a KRM Development house, we were immediately impressed with the quality. We were also very pleased to meet the owner, Kirk, at the open house. He was extremely helpful and answered all of our questions. We knew right then that KRM would be building our house. They worked with us to stay within our budget without sacrificing quality! We could not be more pleased with our home. Thank you KRM Development for building our beautiful home!

~ Tony

We have built two homes with two different builders. The process with KRM Development far exceeded our first experience. The team was a pleasure to work with. They listened to our needs, including our budget, and worked with us to build a high quality house that was friendly to the budget that we had provided. Every meeting we had with Audrey was low stress as she did an excellent job of hearing us out and pulling different things together to make sure my wife and I were on the same page. She was very clear with what was included in the price and what would be more. From a project management perspective Brandon was on top of it. He kept the subcontractors on task working to complete our house in just under 4 months. No corners were cut and when mistakes were made, and they will happen, KRM was quick to make it right. The team was able to take photos that we had found on houzz.com and make them come together in our home. Our home is functional, warm, and just what we wanted for our family. Building a home can be stressful, but the team that we worked with in Kirk, Brandon, and Audrey eliminated the worries. You hear the stories of being left out to dry once the build is done. This was not the case with KRM. They were responsive after the build was complete and held true to their 90 day checkup fixing the things that we had missed during the walk through. Our money was well spent on craftsmanship and service.

We want you and your staff to know how much we appreciate you guys and giving us our dream house. You were so great to work with in getting our basement plans put together. Then, the closing and the follow-up items and how you guys just didn’t sell us a house and bolt like we hear about other builders. Your commitment to making sure we are completely satisfied with our home has completely left its mark on us. We have been telling so many people about not only the wonderful craftsmanship and beauty of our home, but also the amazing service you guys provide. This type of amazing service is something you don’t see in today’s world and we couldn’t be happier with buying from KRM/Tanzanite. Thanks again for all of your assistance and making this a great experience for us!

KRM Development came highly recommended from our architect. We were impressed from the very beginning when we met with the owner Kirk Michelson. He took the time to listen to what was important to us and was very knowledgeable about what materials to use, the costs, and the expert sub-contractors to get the job done right.

 

Everyone we worked with from KRM Development, including their sub-contractors and suppliers were people of integrity. We were so pleased with the excellent craftsmanship that was put into every detail. Brandon, our foreman led the project with a high level of knowledge, experience and professionalism and he demanded perfection in the quality of work that was done. They all went above and beyond to create a beautiful home from top to bottom.

 

We relied heavily on our project manager Audrey who was a pleasure to work with in finalizing all the design details of our home. She led us through the process with ease and made an overwhelming task manageable and enjoyable. Her knowledge and commitment to customer satisfaction was truly commendable. Our kitchen designer, Jenni did a wonderful job working with us to create a layout that was not only functional but very beautiful.

 

Our overall experience with KRM Development was outstanding. It was an honor to work with such and outstanding group of people who became good friends throughout the project. We highly recommend them to anyone thinking of remodeling or building a home.

We purchased our home from KRM the summer of 2013. We love the house, excellent work, top quality products, attention to detail. No cookie cutter stuff here. They have been very easy to work with. If we have any question or concerns, they have been addressed fast. Audrey & Brandon are wonderful. Would recommend without any hesitation.
