I was hoping you would be able to get a message to Joe for me.
I wanted to thank him for taking a chance on me when I applied to rent the 1944 Burnett home. I was a single mom new to the area with not so great credit at the time, and he rented a brand new beautiful home to my children and I.
I want him to know that his kindness in saying yes to my application truly set in motion all of the wonderful things that have happened to my children and I over these past 4 years.
My children ending up in an amazing school district, the friendships they have made, the opportunity for me to find a life changing job, being able to meet my now husband, and now owning a beautiful home.
None of that would have been possible without his kindness and taking a chance on me. I want him to know how he forever bettered the lives of my children and for that I will be forever grateful to him.
Thank you so much to all of you that have had a hand in this wonderful journey and I will be forever thankful to Joe for making this journey possible.
You guys are all truly amazing!!

"We have purchased three Contry homes over the years. The office staff is great and any issues in the field were handled promptly and professionally. We still own all three properties. Two of them we rent out and the third we live in. As an investment, the appreciation in value has been very good. The third we are enjoying living in. With anything we purchase the most important thing to us is the customer service we receive during the process. If it is good, we will be back. If it is not, we won't. We have been back three times. Thank you for the great customer service. Keep up the good work."

"I wanted to send you a letter and let you know how happy we are with our home. Two years ago when we decided to build, we were very nervous having never done this before. Through the whole process your company made it easy to understand, communicated with us professionally, and provided an experience that I have recommended to many of my friends already. Thank you again for making a home we are proud to own."
"We signed the contract to build our new Contry home in November 2004 while visiting here from Arizona where we had resided for the past nine years. The first time we saw our home was when we arrived back here the day before closing. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our home was totally completed to our satisfaction and were impressed with the quality of the workmanship. Our closing was smooth and uneventful. We have found the staff at Contry Homes most pleasant and courteous to work with. On the few occasions when we have needed a callback, we have found the subcontractors to be most pleasant, efficient and reliable. We have thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Contry Homes and love living in Westlake Village."
"Buying a Contry home was the best decision my husband and I made when relocating to a new state. With their wonderful team in Rockford, they made the entire process smooth sailing. Contry Homes had just the things we were looking for: homes built in family-oriented communities with sidewalks and nice-sized lots, floor plans with large master suites and beautiful kitchens and baths. It was easy to fall in love with our house. We would recommend anyone looking to buy a home to contact Contry Homes. They will absolutely take care of your needs and provide you with excellent quality and service."
"I just wanted to let you know how happy my wife and I are with our new Contry home. We spent a lot of time searching for the right home for our family. It's hard to believe we found a quality-built home that was fairly priced, and to top it off, the neighborhood is great. Thanks to everyone at Contry Homes who made this possible."
"I wanted to tell you how much my husband and I love our condo. We live in Oak Crest Commons. The condo is great. It has just the right amount of space and I love the high ceilings! I am from Florida, so I have never had a fireplace. It is the best! And who would have guessed that we would have such a large laundry room. Thanks again for building such quality homes at a great price."
Joe Contarino, Jeff and I are really pleased with our new home we purchased at the Preserve Subdivision in Belvidere. We took our time in looking for a reputable builder in a prime location. I must say we drove through this area probably 30 or more times and visited the model several times. We were drawn to this area. We joked that eventually someone may call the police as much as we were out dirving in the area taking in every detail and considering the models that were available. What a beautiful location! Who wouldn't want a walking path and to be surrounded by 547 acres of Forest Preserve where we can hike, canoe or cross country ski. All of our questions were answered by your knowledgeable and professional staff. We were treated like a valued customer, something that is hard to find these days. We love our new home and won't hesitate to recommend this area and you as a builder.
