ROSEWOOD FLOOR PLAN
Tara & Eric
We are so thankful that a dear friend recommended Sage Homes to us! We were able to tour a few of their homes before we built, and we absolutely loved their style and their standard of quality. The entire process of building with Sage Homes was seamless and well organized. We enjoyed working with both Lisa and Sam. They were very attentive to even our small requests. We love our home and have no regrets.
CYPRESS FLOOR PLAN
Katie & Ben
We built the Cypress plan with Sage Homes and could not have had a better experience. The first meeting with Chris and Lisa is what sold us on Sage. They answered all of our questions, took us to see a house similar to the one we planned on building, and were happy to work with our budget. During the construction process, we worked closely with Lisa. She guided us on picking the finishes and happily made any changes we had. The house was done right on schedule and we have happily been in our new home for a year and still love it as much as the day we bought it. My favorite thing about Sage is the amount of effort they put into the details. From the beautiful trim to the well thought out pantry - everything is designed to make your home both beautiful and functional. We were so happy with the smooth, easy, and fun experience we had building with Sage. Thanks Chris & Lisa!

Just over 3 years ago, we were eager to be one of the first clients of Sage Homes. We were in the market to build our second home and knew we wanted the right builder for the job. Eric: “Since I have been managing the Audio-Visual department at Kline Electric, I have had the experience of working on coordinating job sites with Chris. I could see his passion, quality, and great work ethic from the beginning. Prior to deciding to build our new home, I had mentioned to my wife that when we would be ready to build our next home… Chris would be our builder!” Upon our first meeting with Chris, I could tell my feelings were mutual, I knew we wanted him to build our home for our family to grow up in. We had a detailed vision and plans for our layout, as many new home-owners do. We wanted our home to be practical, yet functional for our family of 5. My favorite part of our home is our spacious open layout of our main living area, with 10-foot ceilings and hardwood throughout, it never feels crowded with ample space! Lisa was very knowledgeable and helpful during our picks meeting, she made it a lot easier for us to conclude on color choices and envision our interior design of our home. Throughout our entire building process, Chris exceeded our expectations in communication and being very compatible to work with. After conversing with many great neighbors in our development, with various builders, it is hard to take having an exceptional building experience for granted. Also, we know that not everyone could say they would definitely use their builder again in the future for their next home. 3 years later, we are still in love with our quality home and get many compliments from visitors. As I always rave my reviews to everyone I can, it was very easy to write this! Thanks again Sage Homes!

From the moment we walked through a Sage Home and met Lisa we knew we found our builder. Lisa was so knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The quality of work they put into their homes is top notch!! We got to custom design a Cottonwood house and Lisa and Chris made is so much fun and exciting. It can be very overwhelming with all the choices they offer, but with Lisa's expertise and experience in designing she made the whole process go so smoothly. Chris was always available to us with an question or concern. We didnt feel like just another customer, we felt like family. We wanted to place a memorial pendant in our house to remember our stillborn son by. Chris personally helped us pick the perfect spot and helped us nail the pendant to the frame of the bedroom before drywall went up. Thank you Sage Homes for such a beautiful house!
COOTONWOOD & ASPRN
Melody, Tracy, & Jay
In the fall of 2014, Tracy and I were on the market for a larger home than the square footage our mid-century, starter house in Des Moines provided. We initially looked at pre-existing homes, with an eye toward early 20th century, Craftsman-style architecture. There wasn’t anything, though, in our price range that we liked. Enter Chris and Sage Homes. Chris and Tracy are long-term friends. One evening while Tracy was lamenting to Chris about not finding any houses we liked in our home search, Chris suggested we consider building with him and his newly-formed company, Sage Homes. We talked it over and decided to build the 1st Cottonwood plan. The design of the home, though new, had many of the quality features that attracted us to Craftsman homes: a showpiece fireplace, beautiful trim, hardwood floors, and attractive windows and doors throughout. We knew right away this would be a good fit for what we’d been seeking, but hadn’t yet found.
We worked closely with Chris and Lisa throughout the process. We enjoyed selecting our finishes with Lisa and were confident in Chris’ knowhow and business savvy to build a solid, attractive, and comfortable home for our family. We broke ground just before New Year’s in 2015 and by late April of 2015, we moved into our finished Cottonwood home. We were incredibly happy there and received so much positive feedback from family, friends, and neighbors. We were so happy, in fact, that this year we decided to upgrade from a 3-bed, 2-bath ranch-style home to a 2-story house with an additional bedroom and bathroom. We were so happy with the quality and integrity of our existing Sage home, we’d never consider building with anyone else.
So, this spring, we signed paperwork and started the process all over again with the Sage crew (with a greatly expanded, but always helpful and friendly staff). This time, we’re building the 1st Aspen plan and can’t wait to e the 1st family to build a second Sage Home. In the span of 3 ½ years, we’ve built not one, but two incredible Sage homes. This time, we’re planning to stick around a lot longer. If we were ever to decide to embark on this process for a 3rd go around, though, we wouldn’t consider trusting anyone other than Sage with whom to partner. Thanks, Sage!!

Back when we began looking to build, we immediately loved the Trestle Crossing neighborhood and had entered into discussion with a different builder. As we continued to do our research, we realized that with the reputation for high quality homes and on time delivery, Sage Homes was the right builder for us. As we have continued through the building process, Sage has shown attention to detail, professionalism, a concern to compete the project on budget without cutting corners, and an ability and willingness to customize to fit our extended family’s needs. Our house won’t be completed for a couple more months but it is already shaping up to be the home that we desired.

Sage was a wonderful builder to work with. The whole team is truly committed to quality which is evident by the fact that their standard home packages already include what many builders would consider ‘upgrades.’ Any issues were addressed right away and Sage was very transparent about the building process. We really enjoyed working with Sage on our dream home and would recommend them to friends and family!
I appreciated the personal touch throughout the process. Meeting one on one with Chris and Kristy at the open house was the moment I was sold. Chris and the team were up-front and honest about the numbers and logistics of the entire process. There were never any surprises and I was able to stay in my budget. Everyone says that is the downfall with building, and I luckily never experienced it with Sage.
You all helped make the entire process enjoyable for not only my first time building a new construction home but as a first time homeowner in general
