Buffum Homes built a beautiful home for my family in 2003 in Byron Center. It was a Parade Home that deservedly won awards for the design and workmanship. The project was managed by a very skilled and caring project manager, and we were very pleased with the end product! They coordinated many things, including making sure the property was laid out properly for a new swimming pool. I can say from experience that Buffum Homes builds a beautiful and design-friendly home and truly cares about their customers! I have since lived in four other Buffum Homes, and the quality was matched in all of them! Norm, Josh Buffum, and the whole team of professionals at Buffum Homes are a wonderful group of caring people. I know the construction business can be very challenging, but they did a terrific job in bringing the projects/houses together for our family. I would highly recommend Buffum Homes for any new home project! Pick Buffum Homes for your next custom home building or just buying, and you will be glad you did!

We just finished building a home with Buffum Homes. We had a FANTASTIC experience. I can't say enough good things about Josh Buffum and Bob Frye! Unlike other builders that we've dealt with (with their cookie cutter homes and pre-determined "options") Buffum was willing to work with us every step of the way. No matter what we asked, the answer was never "no". They were willing to provide us with exactly what we wanted and they were very fair with costs. We were kept informed throughout the build process. Buffum was able to build the home of our dreams AND stay within our budget. What a great team!

Words do not come close to telling you 'thanks' for all you have done for our family. Our home is beautiful. Our neighborhood is amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We pray that God will continue to bless your business. You have done much for us and we are forever grateful.

In a world where customer service is usually non-existent, we found the opposite to be true of Buffum Builders. Our family recently moved to the area from out of state and we instantly fell in love with our new home! After looking at multiple newly constructed homes in the same price range, none of them compared in quality to the one we found!

We LOVE our house! We couldn't be more pleased! We wanted to let you know what an amazing group of people you have on your team. Everyone was so polite, friendly, and hard-working. We also loved the Christian attitude that was very evident. We can't say enough nice things about you all!!!
