We want to thank you for our new home. Everyone was great to work with. Jeff and Lacey were super great. If we had any questions they both were quick to call us with answers. We are enjoying our home and loving it. Again, we want to thank everyone at Ideal and all the crews that worked to make it a beautiful home to live in and enjoy.read more
Kyle and Jasmine
I just wanted to drop a note and tell you guys thank you so much for helping make our building experience awesome. We loved all the vendors and we loved working with ALL of you and making our Dream House a reality! :-) Of course, with Lacey, my sister she's great! She helped us with everything to make it goes smooth as possible. Even took late night texts from my husband and answered any questions we had. If she didn't have the answer she got right back to us with the answer.
The general on the project, Steve Ankenbruck was a gem!!!! He answered all the questions we had he always called, texted or emailed us back right away. He was very attentive and made sure that everything he did was perfect and exactly what we wanted. He visited the house quite a bit to make sure that everything was going how we wanted it. Sometimes we weren't able to be there, it was nice to know that he was checking up on it. He also kept up on all of the vendors and informed us when they were coming before and even after we moved in. With Kyle and I doing some of the work ourselves, he made sure to inform us right away when we needed to complete our task, which was a big help to us because it made things go smoother. In my line of work I know customer service is very important. He has wonderful customer service skills and was a pleasure to work with.
Thank you so much again. We would definitely recommend Ideal Builders to our family, friends, and colleagues. Pleasure working with you all!!read more
Gerald and Sherry M.
After realizing this summer that our present home was getting too much for us, we contacted Lani about listing our home. We were aware of the North park housing development but were not familiar with the newer homes that were built by Ideal Suburban Homes.
In talking with Lani, we became quite interested and after thinking of our options, we decided to pursue the idea of building a home that would be handicap accessible, making life easier in our everyday living.
The decision was made and the floor plan was picked out. In July, we had our pre-construction meeting with Michele and Shannon, to pick out everything needed to get the build started. These two people made the process so much easier and very much appreciated.
Things started taking off; we were very excited to see the foundation poured and before you know it, framing started and then the rest followed.
Gerald and I cannot say enough on the way things were handled by the whole organization. Everything has gone smoothly and the people of Ideal were the easiest to work with. Thank you doesn't seem like enough to say but that's what we want to say.
Thank you all, we can't express it enough on how much you are appreciated. a very pleasant experience. - Gerald and Sherry M.
Addition: Jason, our field Superintendent, is one of the best people there is; he made the transition so very smooth.
The whole thing was nothing but a "God thing"!read more
Bob and Jan
Building a home long distance was a stressful decision but turned out be the perfect solution for us. We met with the Ideal team and picked out everything before we left. I expected to return if problems occurred but they never did. Every question was answered by e-mail or phone.
We returned in early May to see everything come together. Thanks to the Ideal team for their professional and quality service. We love our new home. Bob and Jan
Kent and Kim
We found out in April that our Son wanted to buy our house and business. We knew we had to be out of our house in 7 months. We did not want to have to move twice, so we decided to have Ideal Homes, build us a house. Our Daughter had bought an Ideal spec home about 3 years ago and we really liked it, so we knew what kind of a home we were going to get.
I contacted Lacey Caffee and she was really quick on showing us the different styles of homes that they could build us. I guess before I get too far into the review, I should say that thru the whole process, we dealt with 3 people. Lacey Caffee, who was our sales person. Jeff Gregg, who was the head of the building crew and Kim Davis, who is the head of everyone. All 3 of these people were very kind, friendly and very professional. We did not have any problems along the way. They would bend over backwards to help us when we needed. I asked them if it was possible for us to be ready to move in by Dec 1. They said no problem. They never broke ground until July 11th. I was a bit nervous, but I just trusted them. We ended up getting the keys to the house 2 weeks early!! That was the BEST Thanksgiving gift we could ever ask for. We moved in right before Thanksgiving.
We are very happy with our new home and if I ever build a new house, I would build with them. I travel out of the country a lot and during the construction, I was out of town for 2 months. My family could not believe I was building a new house, and I was not even around. With Ideal Homes, when you pick everything out, you just get out of their way and they make everything happen. They did not have any questions about anything. I always dreaded building a new home, because the friends I know that have built say, it’s a lot of time and stress. Not the case with Ideal Homes. Pick everything out and then you can even leave town.
We are very happy with our new home and we would recommend anyone thinking of building a new home, to contact Lacey Caffee, and believe you me, she will take it from there. Kent & Kimread more

Ron, Bob, Rob and the office staff at Bee Gee Realty in Van Wert were very friendly and helpful in getting us started on our journey.
Your website was easy to maneuver and find the necessary information regarding the floor plans, upgrades and standard items, what brands were used in the house, etc. Everything was spelled out very clearly.
Michele's help and expertise was invaluable, as was her knowledge of the home building process. She was very prompt in answering our emails and phone calls giving us the information or answers usually the same day! Shannon's knowledge of the computer and his ability to tweak our changes was amazing and helped us in visualizing what we wanted! The showroom in Decatur was set up with all our choices and made our decisions considerably easier. Both Michele and Shannon were very patient with us at all times!
Once the actual building started, Jason's help was spot on and amazing! The equipment, materials and crews were on site when they were scheduled and all of them worked very efficiently! He also answered our phone calls and questions promptly!
We have lived in our new home for two months and are very happy here. Overall, it was a very enjoyable and positive experience! Thanks again to the "Ideal Team"! You will never be forgotten!

In January of 2016, I began the hunt for the perfect home in the perfect area. After several months of searching I felt I had possibly found it! However the realtor that I was working with was also representing the seller of my “perfect home” and the experience quickly made a turn for the worst.
That is when I made contact with Danielle Genth from Minear Realty. Danielle was listed as the realtor with Ideal Suburban Homes in the Summerset Ridge edition. I first reached out to Danielle just to see what the cost of building that same perfect house would be. Much to my surprise the cost difference from the 10 year old house I had made an offer on and the brand new build was not that much different! I then set up a meeting with Danielle to start the process of building my new home.
As a first time home owner I could not have asked for a better realtor than Danielle. She was so helpful, upbeat, and patient with me and my crazy work schedule. Danielle was quick to respond and always pure joy to work with. From the first meeting with Danielle I knew it was meant to be! All my frustration with my previous realtor that had made me feel like I was never going to find the perfect home were gone. Danielle sat down explained everything and gave me the peace of mind that I needed.
I have now been in my new Ideal home for about a month and love it! It truly is my perfect home! I was so blessed to meet and work with Danielle and Ideal Suburban Homes. I would recommend working with Danielle to all my family and friends.read more
I have been in my new home about two weeks and I love it. Working with Danielle was a pleasure and she was there for me every step of the process. She answered any questions and all my concerns that came up. I am very satisfied with the quality of my home and would recommend Ideal to anyone building a new home. Thank you Ideal and Danielle for everything.read more
Patrick has been very helpful through out the whole process. We visited several building sites in various stages in the beginning and he always answered my texts and e-mails! He is a great representative for your company and I can tell he loves his job. Building a home is a very overwhelming task but Patrick was very patient and had some great ideas! Cheryl F.read more
First of all, I love the neighborhood. All of the homes are relatively new and well-maintained creating a sound investment for me. My home, in particular, is great for 1 or 2 people. I love the kitchen with its abundance of cabinets and countertop space. Having two bathrooms is very much needed with overnighters with my grandchildren. Thank you, Heather, for your help in finding my home.read more
Bob and Marilyn
Our experience with Ideal Homes and in particular Kim Davis has been wonderful from start to finish. Kim was so knowledgeable, polite, easy to work with and most importantly patient. In fact, everyone at Ideal was extremely helpful, patient and eager to help us build our new home – exactly the way we envisioned it. Ideal stands out from other builders in their wiliness & ability to allow for customization. . Kim & her team did a great job of keeping us updated as the construction progressed. We definitely feel the quality and workmanship of our home is of the highest quality, yet fair & reasonably priced, especially compared to other builders. Our home was finished on time as scheduled, which was greatly appreciated. We have shared our positive & great experience with many, many people over the past year. In fact, our son is actually in the process of building a home right now - no question – Ideal is his builder as well. If you are shopping for a builder for your dream home - -call Ideal Homes, you won’t be disappointed!
Bob & Marilyn
We have had a wonderful experience building a home with Ideal Suburban Homes. From the beginning Brad Minear did an excellent job listening to us and showing us all the options Ideal has to offer. He also guided us step by step through the decision making process and made some excellent suggestions. The entire process was clear and very smooth. What I appreciated most is that the pride that Ideal takes in the homes they produce is second to none. Their attention to detail was wonderful. When I had questions about anything, they listened to me and we were able to work through things together. When people ask if I would build with Ideal again, I state not only a big "YES" but I wouldn't look at any other builder! Aimeeread more
I have built two homes with Ideal and worked with Mark Bixler.
I have been very pleased with both.
They moved walls and made the changes and additions that I requested.
Before we began, they showed me a visual concept of how the interior would look when finished and it turned out exactly as shown. They worked patiently with my many changes and add ons along the way.
The house was finished on schedule which was very important to me since I was moving from out of state.
I would not hesitate to build with them in the future. Rose
George and Diann
Our experience with Ideal has been a good one. Deb Stoebe has seen us through the planning, construction and moving in phases of our Villa. We feel she is a real asset to Ideal. She is friendly, knowledgeable and above all, patient.
Repairs were reported and fixed to our satisfaction. Due to the extremely wet weather in June and the hot, sunny dry July, our lawn has failed to thrive, but we have hopes for a better lawn next year!

Josh and Hannah
We built a home with Ideal almost two years ago now and love it more and more every day! The process of building a home can be stressful but Ideal and our agent, Lani Marshall, took great care of us every step of the way. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the team at Ideal and appreciated their attention to detail and high standards. We were able to customize specific aspects of our home, truly making it our own, and the construction team made every effort to help us accomplish our dream. Throughout construction we stayed connected with Lani and the Ideal team via email and phone, and felt very much involved in the process. Lani went above and beyond to keep us in the loop and helped us stay in tune to the progress being made. We were thrilled the day we closed on the property and have loved living in our new home. We appreciate the whole team at Ideal and our agent Lani Marshall, and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to build a home. - Josh and Hannahread more
Mike, Angie and Caraline
We were fortunate enough to stumble upon our current home through our realtor, Lani Marshall. There wasn't much convincing needed, it was and is a beautiful home. For a young family such as ourselves, we have just about everything we need in the home.
The rooms are all good-sized and we love our walk-in closet in the master bedroom. We also have taken advantage of the options in our kitchen as we love to cook and entertain.
The home is in a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood which is clean and safe.
The buying process was simple enough, as much as home buying can be. We didn't deal directly with IDEAL that often because the home was a model home, so most of the work was done before we moved in. We did change some of the fixtures and furnishings upon purchase, which we worked into the deal without much trouble.
Our realtor walked us through the process fairly and with us in mind first, not the sale being top priority.
We are happy with our purchase, and after a couple years in the home, have put some of our touches on the home to really have that at-home feel in every room of the home, and outside as well.
Mike, Angie and Caraline
A year ago my brand new home was built in North Park Subdivision by Ideal. The experience was amazing and worry free on my part. Starting with the realtor, Lani Marshall, the construction teams, and all the people from Ideal. My home is built extremely well. It was all worry free on my part. The North Park Subdivision is a great place to live! It is quiet and I have wonderful neighbors. And it is very safe to live here. Thank You Ideal for a job well done! I truly love my new home and its location. Sincerely, Terry S.read more

Just wanted to express how happy we are with our new home. We feel it has been a quality process since day one. Ideal has been great to work with, and the finished product is proof of a job well done. Thank you, the whole Ideal crew, and your subcontractors.
Lani Marshall and Rockwell Realty also did a great job. Thanks to Lani and her great attention to detail from start to finish. Her efforts were greatly appreciated, and we were thankful for her watchful eye to ensure satisfaction as the house was being built. The Rockwell team does a fine job of representing both Ideal and the customer.

John and Connie E
We would give our highest recommendation to Deb for our experience in buying the home in Paths of Deerfield. There have been many frustrations connected with this process, but they were all associated with the sale of our existing home. Deb never treated us in less than a professional manner. I know from experience it’s very hard to find a ‘go to’ person you can trust to follow up on the smallest of details. When you do they are invaluable. Deb is that person and our opinion is Ideal is lucky to have her.
We have and will continue to recommend Ideal and Deb to our circle of friends and family. I have never been accused of possessing an abundance of patience and Deb was able to defuse my anxiety, in connection with the sale of our existing home, on more than one occasion. This was above and beyond her responsibility and was much appreciated. We want to thank all those that had a hand in this transaction for making it a positive experience
Respectfully, John and Connieread more
Russ and Tina A.
I loved our experience with Deb and Ideal Suburban Homes. They really worked with us to make sure we got everything we wanted in our house. They also always responded with answers in a timely manner.
Since we have been in all of our service calls (not very many) have been taken care of without any hassles.
I would definitely recommend Ideal and have already mentioned them to several people since we have been here.
Great experience all around! Very happy since we have been out here. Very quiet neighborhood!
Props to Deb Stoebe also - she did a great job with getting us everything we wanted and spent many hours with us to keep us up to date on everything.read more
Villa in Eagle Glen
My wife and I really love our new Ideal villa in Eagle Glen!
It is a quality built and energy efficient home. The floor plan is perfect for us and the home has so many upgraded features that homes in my price range don’t have like rounded drywall corners, a 95% high efficiency Trane HVAC system, all OSB frame and house wrap on the entire house.
We have lived here for 7 months now and we are totally satisfied with everything. The buying process was very satisfying with both Ideal and Minear Real Estate. Brad Minear and his whole team were very easy and pleasant to do business with.
Thank you all!

My wife and I would like to let you know our feelings about our new home.
It is a solid, well built home. We would come out nearly every night to view the progress made each day. . . . . . .
The work crews have done an excellent job and were very courteous. We were amazed at their quality of work. We are very pleased that we bought an Ideal Home.
There is so much to brag about with an Ideal Home. We are really very proud of our Ideal Home and think you will be too.

Paths of Deerfield Homeowner
I had a good building experience and was able to come and watch the construction process. Very professional company. I love the design. My home is very comfortable in a very nice subdivision. I feel at home here!
Faye and James A.
If you are looking for a prime location with diversity that provides the convenience of city sewage and water, Paths of Deerfield is the perfect sub-division. After shopping around and doing my homework I decided that Ideal Suburban Homes was the best builder for me. I appreciated that I could modify the floor plan to fit my needs. I was also very impressed with the craftsmanship of the various teams that worked on my home.
I have been in my house for about six months and when the normal new house issues occur Ideal Suburban Homes responds quickly. They cater to their clients. I must give thanks to the entire staff that made my home absolutely beautiful. I am ecstatic with the final product and would not change a thing.
Take a look at Ideal Suburban Homes if you are looking to purchase or build a new home in the Warsaw area. Deb Stoebe, the consultant for Ideal is great to work with. She gets to know her clients and helps them find the house that is perfect for them.read more
Tyler and Alannah
When looking for our first home we considered Ideal Suburban Homes’ Villa living. As a young couple, this was clearly the best option to become homeowners at an affordable level, while getting everything we need and so much more in a home. The Villa is spacious, quality built, and exceeds our expectations as first time buyers. Paths of Deerfield is a great community to live in; being quiet, friendly, and conveniently located. We couldn’t be happier with our first home ownership experience, and that was made possible by Ideal and their staff. Thank You!read more
Jerry & Sharon L.
Hey friend, if you’re considering building a new home soon, we would like to share our journey with you. We have been living in our new home built by Ideal Homes, for about 6 weeks. Our home was always kept on schedule and after 3 ½ months, we moved in. When we started looking for a builder, we wanted quality craftsmanship, an affordable floor plan, and a builder who’s well established with integrity. We’ve owned several older homes throughout the years and this is our 3rd new one. We felt very confident with Ideal’s Builder Representative, Allen Felt. His 50 years of knowledge and experience made it easier to choose the perfect home for us. We were very impressed with the team concept they use to develop all the construction plants, it allowed us to tap into their skilled group knowledge. We were equally impressed with their financial coordinator, Kim Davis. It didn’t take us long to realize she was one of the key people to Ideal’s success. Her wonderful communication skills helped assure our confidence in Ideal’s commitment to making it easy to build and own an Ideal Home.
One burden we weren’t looking forward to was going to multi-locations to decide on all the accessories. Choosing Ideal solved that problem by offering a full array of products displayed at their office. Other builders gave us prices on a similar home, but they were about 30% higher. They also use multi sub-contractors, and we’ve found that the more sub-contractors, the less accountability, making it easier to play, pass the buck! In the past, some smaller companies have gone out of business and so there goes your warranty. We found it very easy to work with their experienced in-house designer Chuck Foehl, making all the desired changes to our plans. We used a few upgrade packages and chose better windows. We decided to install wood-stained doors and trim that added more elegance to our home and were well pleased with the look. Ideal’s job site supervisor, Jason Lockwood, was very knowledgeable and extremely easy to communicate with. He was very polite and attentive to our questions or problems during construction. All the building crews displayed high skill levels and their team workforce make it easy to make any changes or improvements during the construction stages as well. Ideal chose to use one mechanical contractor instead of multi and that makes it better to get something changed, or corrected if there’s a problem in the future, not to mention they worked well together on the job site.
P.S. If I had to say what acronym comes to mind when I think of the company name IDEAL? It would be:
GREAT JOB IDEAL BUILDERS, WE MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE!

Glenn & Helga T.
Hi, my name is Glenn and my wife's name is Helga. I'd like to tell you a little story about our weekly Sunday afternoon rides. After church on Sundays my wife and I like to drive past Tiger's Retreat, a little villa addition that Ideal Construction is building in our community. On one of these afternoons I said to my wife, "Let's drive through." So we did and found that Ideal had built a villa with a loft, which they hadn't done there before, and my wife was excited. We checked out the model home, and then introduced ourselves to the sales rep, and I told her "I got to have me one of these."
We decided to build from scratch instead of buying one that was already built and for sale. We like the villas in our addition, but we wanted a lot of little changes that we thought would be convenient to our life style. This is when we met the design team: Chuck, Paul, Kim and Jason, who made us feel confident that the things that were important to us would be a priority. We had many discussions, many emails, and many drawings, but we finally hammered out what we thought might be the best villa Ideal ever built. And then the work began.
They excavated our lot, brought in gravel, put forms up and poured concrete. It was pretty cool to watch. But for us one of the nicest things was meeting all the different people who worked on our villa. There was something about going to our job site and seeing how many people it took to build our place--electricians, framers, siders, roofers, concrete workers, mechanical workers, finishing workers, painters, etc. By the time it was all over we were on a first name basis with almost everyone, and enjoyed their willingness to listen to our concerns.
My wife and I had never built a home before. We had no experience and really no idea of the process and we were unsure what to do. But Kim got involved and stayed involved with us and made our process probably one of the most fun things my wife and I have ever attempted together. We can't say enough about how much she helped us and made our experience a pleasant one.
On that last day, when our sales rep Deb met us and handed us the keys to our home and we walked through it, we realized something that just months before we didn't think could happen. We had a beautiful home and all our ideas had become reality. It was a fun and exciting experience. Everyone pitched in to make our home beautiful.read more
Bob and Shawnee V.
A big thanks to all the workers who helped in putting together our new house. It was a 3 year discussion on our part, figuring out how we wanted to build our new home. From the beginning, Deb was a huge help. From the start to the finish of the building process, they all did a fantastic job and we are very thankful for all the time and commitment they’ve put into our home. Anything that we found that was not to our liking, they happily took care of. We wanted it done by a certain time and they had it finished even before then. They were very helpful in every way to make us happy and they do outstanding work. We have now moved into our new home and are quite satisfied with what they have done.read more
I want to let you and everyone at Ideal to know that I am very happy with my home buying experience. Everyone that I had contact with from start to finish were professional, prompt, and accurate.
I'm happy with how the house came out and the apparent quality. You have my commitment, that I will give Ideal my recommendation, for the above.
Regards, Kenread more
Gary & Jody
Gary and Jody have made the adjustment well to villa living. Gary and Jody both like their brand new home. Jody commented that having many selections and color choices to choose from made the building process even more fun for her. The interior design is theirs, chosen and designed by them.
"We like being this close to town, but yet it is quiet here. Even with all the new construction going on, you can't hear it inside our home."
Gary and Jody's villa is a 1,556 square foot Traditions I with fireplace and sunroom.
"We have lots of room and found it no problem to scale down from our other home. Our daughter had just gotten married, and so she got a lot of our furniture and items we didn't need."
Gary and Jody are pleased with their decision to move to Tigers Retreat. They feel a sense of security with the neighbors looking our for each other and enjoy the peaceful neighborhood.read more
John & Jeanne
"We are so glad we made the move to Tigers Retreat. The size of our home is just right for us and fits our lifestyle."
John & Jeanne's home is a Traditions I, 1,556 square foot Villa with 2 bedrooms, study and sunroom. John and Jeanne like to travel so living in a Villa Community where lawn care and snow removal is taken care of allows them that freedom. John can now enjoy his golf game instead of moving the yard at home.
"We also have a nice neighborhood. The neighbors look out for each other here. You don't find neighbors like we have here at Tigers Retreat."
John & Jeanne truly enjoy their Villa and their Villa Community at Tigers Retreat!read more
Eric & Nancy Z.
Eric and Nancy were one of the first Residents to buy a villa at Tigers Retreat. There are so many things they enjoy about the community itself. Nancy loves to walk with her grandson and "Tigers Retreat is perfect for that," Nancy commented.
"We are close to town, great location, with a great neighborhood."
Their villa is right on the pond with the fountain.
"We enjoy the pond and the fountain. It's nice to sit on the patio, watch the water, and listen to the fountain."
Eric was thrilled at the lower energy bills, "It is so much cheaper than what we were paying". This is good construction, with nice prices and many interior choices" Eric further commented.
Their villa is a Traditions II with 1,432 square feet with a sunroom. Eric and Nancy have done many landscaping items of their choice but "having the exterior maintenance taken care of for you, truly frees up time to enjoy life and hobbies".read more
I enjoyed building my new villa with Ideal Suburban Homes. They made the process easy! It was nice to always have a key during construction and have access to my new home.
If any issues needed addressed, Paul Conrad was quick to answer questions and kept in touch with me.
I appreciated that communication. While I was designing my home, Rae Jean was always available for questions and gave me helpful suggestions that saved me money.
Someone from Ideal was always available for me.

We love this Greenfield Farms community. We have moved here from the country and we like this semi-rural atmosphere. Nice and quiet - farm fields across the road - yet close to town, doctors, hospitals and shopping. Really like the area - it's like being in the country. We are very happy with our new IDEAL home.

Sell or not to sell, I had to make up my mind. I knew that I needed a great realtor if I was to sell my home. I decided on Evelyn Felt. She helped guide me through the selling process. She took charge and told what I needed to do to get my home sold. She soon brought perspective buyers through my home. She did it! I received an offer and sold my home. Evelyn’s professionalism is a credit not only to herself, but to Ideal, the city of Decatur, and the entire state of Indiana.

We really like the quietness and seclusion of the subdivision. We sit on the patio in the evening it is peaceful and relaxing, we enjoy our villa. Yes, it is close to town, but we still have seclusion and peacefulness. There isn’t anything we don’t like about or villa. We like the roominess of the villa itself with the square footage and the sunroom. The villa is good quality, and the workmanship is fantastic. Any problems or repairs that are needed have been done in a timely fashion, we appreciate that.

She was a widow and her husband a widower until they met 12 years ago. Each had a farm near Fort Wayne and each sold after they viewed an open house at Bluffton where Evelyn showed them around. They liked the feel of the neighborhood both in winter and in summer. It’s friendly and the neighbors are nice to them.
The building experience was great because the builder did just like they said they would. They feel their experience at Sandalwood is unique because both lived on farms before. They like that it’s small, close to the grocery store and the dollar store.
They have three-wheeled bikes they ride every day and say it’s a nice place to ride. They take the side street and cross Hwy 1 and head to the trail where they ride 3 ½ miles every day! They can see the park from their house. The utility bills are reasonable. She say’s “it is wonderful living for us!” They feel the taxes are in line.read more

My wife and I have been self employed for some years and have always wanted to have a home of our own. Each time we tried, we were always told we didn’t qualify. Here recently, with the interest rates down and the government giving an $8,000- stimulus incentive, we thought we’d try again.
We contacted Ron Selking at Ideal and he said he was going to get us into a home of our own. He went through the procedure and was told we didn’t qualify, again. We told Ron thanks for trying and we appreciated all he did for us and he immediately replied ‘we don’t give up that easy. . . .you and your wife deserve a home of your own so we are going to try plan B’.
Much to our surprise, he was able to get us qualified and we are finally in our long awaited home. He is our ‘Miracle Worker’.
We are so thankful for Ron and Ideal and all they’ve done. If you need a home, Ron and Ideal are your team!

I have really enjoyed living at Paths of Deerfield. Ideal did a very nice job with my home and I have been very pleased. Deb Stoebe has been a big help with any questions or concerns I have had. She always returns my calls and if she didn’t have an answer, she would find someone that did.
I would like to express how much I enjoyed working with Marsha Bursey-Ford and Jason Lockwood on my new home. Marsha went out of her way to help with my financing and to help me choose the items and colors in my home. I called her several times and she always returned my calls and was very accommodating. Jason did likewise. I never had to wait long to hear from him if he was busy on my initial call. I would recommend to friends and family both of them as a team.
I am now enjoying my new home and am confident that if any questions or problems should arise they will be addressed in a timely manner.

We were downsizing when we built our custom Bel Aire in Ideal’s Paths of Deerfield area in Warsaw in 2008. The process went smoothly and we were very impressed with the craftsmanship of the various teams that worked on our home. We appreciated the fact that we could modify the floor plan to fit the unique needs of our retirement lifestyle. We love it and would not change a thing.

We love our villa at The Paths of Deerfield. It’s a very nice neighborhood and so convenient to everything like shopping and eating but you feel like you are in the country with our woods and watching the deer and the birds from our patio. The quality of our place is exceptional too. We are happy with everything. Anytime we have had to have Ideal to fix something it was addressed immediately or as soon as possible. Ideal is a good company to deal with and also help you design your home.

Our family has been working with Bursey Consultants, Inc. and Ideal Suburban Homes for over a year fixing our credit so that we could buy a home.
Our family has been through, and is currently dealing with, multiple health conditions while living on a fixed income and if it was not for Marsha Bursey-Ford at Bursey Consultants, Inc. and Ron Selking at Ideal we would have never had the opportunity to get into a new home.
They have gone over and beyond what is expected and have done a wonderful job to get us to where we need to be. We never thought we would get to buy a home and with the help and support of Ron and Marsha we will be closing on our home soon.
We recommend anyone to use Marsha, Ron and the Ideal staff to clean up credit so they can become eligible for a brand new home. This has been a blessing to our family and is going to help make life a little easier on us and our children.
We want to thank Marsha, Ron, and Ideal Suburban Homes for all of their hard work and dedication to our family. You all are truly a blessing and everything you have done for our family is greatly appreciated.
Thank you so very much,
Scott and Rebecca G.
