“The process from start to finish was very professional….both Laurie and Mark were very pleasant to work with – very responsive and got things done!  Laurie was extremely thorough and very quick to respond.  Mark was always available – he could meet us at the house and returned our calls.  The allowances were dead on!  This was an excellent experience for us!  Thank you!”
Karen & Cory – Perrysburg (The Sanctuary)

“Laurie’s approach to the building process was the most open, organized and customer-focused approach we encountered in interviewing builders.  It was a breath of fresh air to find someone so devoted to understanding our needs and helping us plan to meet them.  Best of all, the excellent craftsmen contracted by Melchior made the task of monitoring construction a simple one, as they were as concerned as we were about getting the job done right.  I continue to be impressed by their organization, skillfulness and ability to focus on customer satisfaction – even after the house is complete.  They build a quality home AND their people aim to please.”
Alan & Cassie – Perrysburg Twp. (Belmont)

“Thank you for an excellent job!  We are delighted with the house and could not be more pleased with the work you performed.  Mark did an excellent job and was always available for questions and answers.  Laurie, you’re a gem!  We never felt any of our thousands of questions went unanswered or were too trivial.  You gave us great advice and listened to our concerns.  Many times during construction Karen and I talked about how fortunate we were to have chosen a Builder that we could trust.  You are very honest, dependable and a great Team and you made our experience a joy!”
Rick & Karen – Elmore, OH

“Laurie was organized, took notes, followed up, translated contractor language for me, and most of all was humble.  If she didn’t know, she said so, then would find out and report back to us.  She anticipated and noted our decisions and let us know exactly how long we had to change our minds and when it was too late.  As we’d expected, our wish list sometimes exceeded our budget.  But where we had to “lower our standards” Melchior never lowered theirs in quality or craftsmanship.  Would we do it again?  My husband doesn’t like to think about that one, but yet he joins in when we start “next time tell Laurie we want….”
Amy & Scott – Perrysburg (Riverford)

“It has been a really wonderful experience and we look forward to doing it again some day because we have complete confidence in you.”
Grace & John – Monclova (The Quarry)


“Your price was in line with the others, not the highest and not the lowest.  I checked your references and investigated houses you were building.  I knew that if I had a problem or question, I could call and talk to a person, not an answering machine like other builders.  I picked you, most of all, because of Laurie – honest, no B.S. and extremely efficient.”
Mike & Julie – Perrysburg (Rivercrest)

“We felt you ‘did it right’ or didn’t do it at all.  This could have been a grueling experience but instead it was well planned and executed.  We enjoyed the experience.”
Tom & Melanie – Perrysburg (Crandenbrook)

“We were very satisfied with Melchior Builders.  This is our third new home and this time the process was virtually hassle-free.  Laurie is the key person why that occurred; she is efficient, personable, knowledgable and follows through.  Our last home before this one was built in Wayne County and we loved that builder!  We thought that no one could build a home as well as they did, but we were wrong!  Melchior exceeded our expectations and we love our new home.  We cannot thank you enough and continue to marvel at your consistent professionalism and quick response.  If we ever build another home, it will most definitely be a Melchior home.”
Bill & Dorothy - Rossford

“Our experience with Melchior Builders was very good.  As a family business, we think yours is the best we’ve seen.  Everyone was so friendly and very helpful.  We love our new home and everyone who comes in agrees that it is beautiful.  Thanks for everything.”
Sue & John – Perrysburg Twp.

“Yours was a very, very complete proposal; not a thing was left out.  The details were explicit and Laurie was very professional in explaining every single item and phase of the construction and very pleasant to work with.  I would build with Melchior again, no question!  I wouldn’t even get another quote because I know they are fairly priced, do excellent work and are great to work with.  You surpassed our expectations!”
Jesse & Debbie – Perrysburg (Valleybrook Farms)

“You guys were an absolute pleasure to work with.  Laurie is prompt and thorough in her estimates, billings, etc.  She extended many considerations to us, from convenient meeting times, to passing on her discounts, etc.  Customer satisfaction is obviously an important goal for her and Mark.  We love our new home and enjoying hearing the comments of our guests who visit.  Thanks again for being so courteous and helpful.”
Cindy & Dean – Oregon, OH

“Overall the experience was great!  This was our dream home and fortunately we had the finances to complete it as we wanted.  Melchior Builders is a class act!  As far as we’re concerned, they are the best!  A great quality home is what they build – you guys are great!”
Patti & Bill – Perrysburg (Overlook @ River Ridge)

“Both of us agree that the interest and friendliness that Laurie showed from the beginning made us end our search for the perfect builder…we found her!  To us, the added input into decorating, current trends, furniture placement, etc. made this a “home building experience” instead of just ‘house construction’.  The feminine and personal touches added so much to our confidence that things would turn out as we had hoped.  All of the subcontractors spoke highly of Melchior and had a great sense of duty and pride in their workmanship as well as loyalty.  Thank you so much!  We are happy and had such a positive experience!”
Jan & Donna – Oregon, OH (Eagles Landing)

“The company’s obvious commitment to customer service extends not only to their own employees but to their subcontractors as well.  We have met many individuals during our daily visits to the site and all are unfailingly courteous, helpful, highly competent and take obvious pride in doing high quality work.  We’ve built 3 homes before this one and the process has always been irritating and frustrating, and even gruesome.  Our experience with Melchior has been positively a delight!  We plan to own and enjoy this home for many, many years.  But when the time comes to design our retirement home, we’re going to call Melchior’s.  We encourage you to do the same.”
Chris & Jacque – Springfield Twp. (Timber Ridge Estates)

“Thank you for your effort and time in preparing an estimate for our home.  I felt your presentation was very professional and your ideas refreshing and interesting.  It was certainly worth our time.”
Harold & June – Monclova (The Quarry)

“This is a short note to thank you and your firm for a successful completion of our new Toledo district office.  Your on-time performance was very important to us and your professionalism in all details has been outstanding.  My special thanks goes out to Mark for his helpfulness and willingness to get this project out of the ground and completed in record time.  Laurie’s strength is her friendliness and determination in helping recognize and solve an endless number of important details.  I highly recommend your firm to all prospective clients.”
Project Manager, Corporate RE Development
Pitney Bowes

“We’ve lived in our new home for over a year and a half, long enough for any construction problems to surface.  I’m pleased to report that none of any consequence has.  What minor problems did arise –and they do, whether one is buying a new house or a new car – were taken care of quickly and professionally.  When we made the biggest investment in our lives we heard, as everyone does, the problems with working with builders.  Anything from major construction snafus, promises not kept, cost overruns, having unskilled people on the jobsite.  We didn’t experience any of those problems; in fact, it was a very pleasant experience watching our home come to life.  Continue to offer the buyer great value and workmanship and you will enhance your already great reputation as a quality builder.”
Bob & Carol – Perrysburg (Rivercrest)


“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the outstanding job you did at our new office on Corporate Drive.  The expertise, timing and follow thru your company displayed is well worth these accolades.”
Division Sales Manager
R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.

“I chose your company to build my new home because of your friendliness and determination in helping me make the right decisions.  During and after the construction, Mark and Laurie kept all their promises to me and satisfied all of my concerns.  I am very proud of my quality Melchior-built home.  I recognize just what a good decision I made by building with your company.  As Laurie would say, ‘Quality isn’t expensive, it is Priceless’.  Thanks again for all your help.”
Shirley (3-time repeat customer) – Perrysburg (River Ridge)

“As you know, we searched the area for quality workmanship but when we met you and realized the extent of your knowledge, professionalism and, of course, your delightful personality, we knew it had to be Melchior Builders that would build our home.  It was a fun, informative and truly positive experience.  Thank you so much.”
Jane & Tom – Sylvania Twp. (Berkshire Village @ Forest Lakes)

“Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for helping us to realize the reality of a beautiful new home.  We get so many compliments and have enjoyed it immensely.  Thank you and Melchior Builders for your time and talent.”
Shelly & Doug – Pemberville, OH

“Just wanted to thank you; we appreciate all you did to assist us in making this difficult decision.  We found our experiences with you very pleasant.  Your professionalism, expertise, attitude and organization skills are exceptional.”
