Dear Dennis and Steve,

Although you must know how pleased we are, we just wanted to thank you again for our beautiful home. We appreciate your time and patience in helping us through our first home building experience. We learned so much, next time will certainly be easier!

We feel especially fortunate to have had Charter Group as our builder, especially when we hear the stories other people tell about their experience with having a home built. When we relate our story, people always tell us it sounds too good to be true.

Everyone we dealt with during the building process from realtors to retail salespeople to the contractors at the site all had nothing but praise for Charter Group. You certainly live up to your reputation.

Thanks again for helping to make our dream come true.

Linda and Bob M.

Dear Dennis and Steve

Our building process with Charter Development was a great experience from start to finish. Charter was open to any changes we wanted to make to our home during the construction process and made the changes willingly and our home was ready to move into exactly on time.

Charter builds with superior quality materials from foundation up. After we moved into our home, the builder was always available at a moment’s notice for any questions or concerns and solved our minimal problems quickly.
We would highly recommend Charter to anyone who plans to build in the future. As far as we are concerned, they have an impeccable reputation.

Dear Steve ,

We have been fortunate enough to build a few new houses in our lives, this being our third. We are extremely happy to report that this has been the best experience we have had. The Charter Group was very professional, had an organized and structured selection process and building time line, great communication, and no hidden surprises. We were pleased with the flexibility to change the house to fit our lifestyle, and turn it into “our home”. More than five years after we have moved in, we are as happy as ever with the quality of construction, and the quality of the functional design. A great house, now a great home, built by a great group! Thanks Steve!”

Dear Steve:

Sabine and I wanted to express our appreciation for the very professional services throughout our home design and construction project. We appreciated the abilities to make computerized changes to the basic plan and provide quick analysis on the cost and design implications. Since this was our first home building project, your very sage advice throughout the project was also much appreciated.

During the actual construction, Charter Group’s ability to schedule its work crews and material deliveries on a very timely basis assured rapid construction to schedule.
This was particularly critical because on the difficult construction site. Your flexibility on changes made while work was in progress were remarkable, and much appreciated.

The final product was truly outstanding, and has been a very livable home for this first year. Every day we discover something else that reminds us Charter stands for high quality and great design. We’d be happy to be a reference for any prospective clients.

Thanks again for a great home!

Sabine and Paul S.


Let me start of by saying that I have built several homes in my life and up until the time when I worked with Charter Group, I swore each time that I would never do it again. But after working with Charter Group, specifically Steve Rodgers (and Dennis), I would definitely do it again, as long as it was with them.

What made the experience easy and actually fun was that Steve along with Dennis, made the process flexible without those “change fees.” They are extremely accommodating when it is time to meet and make decisions, Saturday, later in the day, whatever it takes, they want to make the client feel content.

My wife and I made many modifications to the floor plan that we started out with and at every change they were supportive and even got involved in the process. We dropped the family room floor, completely reconfigured the Master Bathroom and they were nothing but supportive the entire process.

Additionally the crews and vendors that are used by Charter Group are nothing but professional and friendly. They did a great job and were very timely. What makes them above many is that they are as much post the build as they are pre and during. They are about a relationship.

I know that this may sound like an advertisement for Charter Group, but I will tell you this… up to this day, four years after we completed the house, my wife and I still speak to Steve and he has been over to the house on several occasions just because…!
