I have been in my Tomlin home for several years now and am completely happy with the quality and workmanship.  We had done our homework checking out all the builders in this area including going to the building site where each builder had homes under construction.  The one thing that stood out about Tomlin Construction was that their building sites were always clean and organized where others were a mess with construction materials strung out all over the property.  That told me a story about Tomlin Construction….a story of pride and ownership in their product.  The decision making process was handled easily with the knowledge of both Ken and his wife Jo.  She helped me with making good choices on carpet, tile, lights, etc.  Our experience was effortless from signing our purchase agreement through closing.  I was amazed at the level of customer service both before and after move-in.  This was the third home we have had built and I would, without hesitation, recommend a Tomlin home to anyone.

Please know we appreciate all that you did in making this home so very special to us.  Honestly, we comment on it everyday how much we love it and how much we love it even more than what we had planned.  It is so obvious to us how much thought you must have given to every little detail.  You simply thought of everything when planning this home.  How fortunate we feel that we found it first.  How blessed you are to be so “talented” and thoughtful!  Thanks again for all your hard work and careful planning.  As far as we’re concerned you are hands down the #1 Builder in NW Arkansas!!!  Please feel free to send any prospective buyer our way – we would be happy to show them our home.

In 2003 Judy and I came to Bella Vista in search of a new home and a good retirement.  Well we found both as one morning we were looking at new homes and happened to run into Ken Tomlin.  That turned out to our lucky day as he proceeded to show us four homes he had built and we were impressed with the workmanship.  We then asked him to find a level lot and give us a price which he did in short order.  We returned to Minnesota and within a week we received our blueprints and a price which we had agreed upon and our journey was about to begin.

We rented a home for seven months here in Bella Vista as we watched our dream home being built.  It wasn’t a nightmare as everyone told us.  We made some changes in the home and Ken followed through with each and every one.  Ken’s wife Jo was so accommodating and helped us with all the interior finishing and decorating ideas.  All went on schedule and less than seven months later we moved into our new home which was exactly as we had envisioned it to be.  We had no complaints on completion.  We have nothing but good memories in our adventure of building a new home.

I was reading through the Bella Vista Village Voice and saw your ad.  We just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our house.  We enjoy it more and more every day and have received so many compliments on the extra features and great quality.

We wanted to send you a note of appreciation for our new home.  You and Jo made it a very pleasant experience, as this was the first home we’ve had built.  On our first trip to Arkansas, we met some people who had a Tomlin home and let us tour it.  We were very impressed, and this led us to talk with you.  Your letting us talk to owners and tour additional homes that Tomlin Construction had built, helped us make up our minds to have you as our builder.  We were initially in Wisconsin when the building started, and you kept us informed and patiently answered all our questions as first time home builders.  Once we were down here, your attention to construction detail gave us a good feeling.  Having Jo’s expertise and good taste on picking out our appliances, fixtures, carpeting and tile made the whole process a pleasant experience.  Now that we are in our new home we are extremely happy and enjoying it everyday.  We are so pleased with the quality you put into building our home.  Thanks for everything!

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the house.  You listened to what we wanted and with your expertise it was made into our “dream home”.  When we moved to Bella Vista we were looking for a builder to build our house and heard about you through friends.  When we went through their house we thought now this is the builder we are looking for.  We called you and you took a look at our lot to give us an idea of what kind of plan we would like.  Once we decided what type of plan, we personalized it to the way we wanted it.

We knew by looking at the houses you had built, now here is a builder that pays attention to details and does a quality job.  When the house was finished and we had our walk through, the few small items that needed to be corrected were taken care of very quickly and you even pointed out something that you thought should be taken care of.  We were very impressed that you spoke up about it and made sure that everything was perfect.  Again, we want to say that we appreciated your attention to details and treating our house construction like it was your house being built.  Our friends and neighbors that have been through the house all have remarked what a beautiful home it is.  We will definitely mention you to anyone we know that is thinking of building.  Thank you for making our experience a good one!
