What Our Home Owners Are Saying

Ertl Homes built the home I live in, which was previously owned. The home was extremely well-built down to the smallest detail. After a few years, I decided to have a sunroom built from an existing open porch. Ertl Homes did a great job and was very easy and pleasant to work with. I certainly would use them again for any remodeling prospect.

Tom Ertl built a custom home for us 13 years ago. I can’t believe how perfect it has been. We have had no problems at all. We have enjoyed Tom’s beautiful millwork and his unique designs. Everything fit so perfectly. If I ever decide to build another home, I won’t even talk to another builder, it will be Tom Ertl.
Dr. Louis Beall, Vieux Carre
We moved into an Ertl home in 1998. It was always a great house. We loved it until we decided to ‘go smaller.’ The people that live there now are just as happy as we were.

Tom Ertl built our house in 2005.  He was a pleasure to work with and the quality of his workers and subcontractors was great.  Their workmanship still elicits compliments to this day.  Their attention to detail and desire to do things right was evident throughout the building process.

Even after all this time, when we did have a repair recently, his people were here immediately and fixed the issue.

I used Ertl Homes for a whole house renovation, a sunroom addition, and a complete kitchen remodel on another property. Tom Ertl and his crew are the best of the best. Like part of the family. Their attention to detail goes above and beyond the usual. I highly recommend Ertl Homes for your home building needs!

We have used Tom for three renovation projects ranging in size from small to major jobs. Not only is the quality excellent, but his construction expertise & experience helped give us a final product better than we had hoped for.
Drs. Roland & Lynn Jones, Golden Eagle
I have known Tom Ertl for almost 20 years and have worked with him on multiple construction projects including building a house and remodeling others. Tom is extremely reliable and the quality of his work is excellent. Tom and his staff were very pleasant and accommodating at every stage of the construction process and continue to be this way for years after project completion. I highly recommend Tom and his associates.
Dr. John Katopodis, Bobbin Trace
Years ago when we were looking to find a builder to build our custom home in Killearn. We looked at numerous builders and we chose Tom because his homes were different from everything else we’ve seen and because of his professionalism and trust.

Years later we looked to build a larger home on acreage and we asked Tom to build that also. We loved the house, the workmanship, and the working relationship with Tom and his people. In the future we will be looking to size down and when we do, we will ask Tom for his help on our final custom home.

Tom is an exceptional home builder and person, a dedicated professional and is someone you can trust. We highly recommend him.
Mary and Joe Lazor, Point North
The worst mistake we ever made 20 years ago was not having Tom Ertl build our home. The best decision we made 4 years ago was having him do our renovation. Tom helped us with the design and scope of the renovations. He had some great ideas and was willing to look at our lifestyle and interests before he made his suggestions. He was very cost conscious and creative. He kept his men on the job and he made sure things were done right and on time. Tom fixed all the things we did wrong when we first built our home and if we ever build again or do anything else to our home, we will certainly hire Ertl Homes to do the work.

When setting out to start a whole house remodel, we knew that Tom Ertl would be at the top of our list. We had been a long-time fan of his new construction homes that we had toured over the years or that he had built for our friends. His traditional styles, beautiful craftsmanship and attention to details are what drew our attention to him when seeking out a contractor to remodel our 20 year old home. From our first meeting with Tom, he was extremely professional and was able to provide us with competitive quotes for the jobs we were requesting. Tom even provided us with many additional ideas and suggestions to make our home more functional and overall more beautiful once completed.

During our entire remodel process, Tom Ertl was very easy to work with and always on the job site for me to speak to in person. If I did happen to miss him, he was always a phone call away and always available to us. His subcontractors were excellent and I never had to worry about receiving less than superior work.

Professionally, we couldn’t have asked for more lovely remodel and outcome for our home. The changes he made were amazing and they exceeded our expectations. In addition, they were even completed in a timely matter. Personally, my family can’t say enough good things about Mr. Ertl. During our remodel process, our 4 young children wanted to be a part of the experience to ‘help’ remodel our future home. Tom and his crew made my children feel welcome, safe and allowed them to provide their input throughout the entire process. This was a family project and Tom included all of us from the start. We have continued to recommend Tom to our friends and family due to the wonderful outcome and experience we had. There is no doubt in my mind if we even contemplated building a new home in the future we would definitely make it another Ertl Home!

Ten years ago, my home was built by Tom Ertl in the Vieux Carre subdivision. Having never built a home myself and hearing the many horror stories about the process, Tom assured me that I would enjoy the experience and be totally satisfied. He never let me down! He patiently listened to my desires, offered various options and upgrades, worked with an interior designer and guided me through each step resulting in a custom home which has been my dream home since. His attention to all the fine details as well as his artistic flair certainly resulted in a most unique home. I have been proud to say that I live in an Ertl home, and would recommend Tom (and his excellent crew) to anybody interested in building their personal custom home. In addition, he has always been available to help with even the most minor problems throughout the years. Tom, thanks for a fun and great experience!
Dr. Harry Rosenblum, Vieux Carre
Tom built our dream home in Rose Hill several years ago and I still tell everyone that when you end up being better friends with your builder after the house has been built than when it first started, tells you not only the fabulous and beautiful job that Tom does but the kind of person he truly is. He is professional and always has your interest at heart.

Tom was the best at keeping us abreast on what was going on, what stages we were in and what would be coming up next. My husband was a stickler at inspecting Tom’s work down to the inch and was never disappointed in the craftsmanship of his work.

If I ever have the opportunity to build another house there is no question who will be the builder I choose to undertake the project and that is Tom Ertl. The Ertl homes take on a special look.
