We pride ourselves on providing a seamless experience from beginning to end and believe that client referrals are the highest compliment of a job well-done! Here’s what some of our past homeowners are saying:


Dear Mr. Yoder:

It had taken me awhile to become organized after the transformation of my kitchen. Now it is an enjoyable daily reality for me. Every day I thought about writing to thank you for the beautiful result that your skillful and efficient teams were able to accomplish. They are commendable, your vision is admirable. Thank you to you at the helm.

After years of planning and dreading the results of any remodeling construction work, the almost accidental walk in your office and talk with your friendly assistant Anna on two occasions, seems like my lucky chance to me now. In a natural manner she was encouraging and optimistic, everything sounded promising suddenly.

Then I received a call from Amy, whose approach impressed me positively from the beginning. She was encouraging, made me feel secure for the duration of the work along with Charley. He worked hard supervising the progress of the work each day, consistently kept me informed about the conditions and unexpected changes.

Each person who contributed in some way in the creation of my new kitchen has my gratitude, especially Amy and Charley who were closely in contact, sent reminders to keep me informed and followed the work progress daily for over two months.

“Yoder Homes completely remodeled two of our bathrooms. They did a fabulous job and were extremely professional when it came to change requests and adapting to unexpected issues. The finished product was perfect, we could not have asked for a better outcome. All members of the team represented the company well and were very careful to control dust & debris during the remodel process. Denny provided a clear estimate of the cost during the planning process and delivered within the original budget.”

Best wishes in your new and beautiful location. It seems you chose the best.
Sincerely,
Lucy Garcia


“Yoder homes is now on their second project with me. They are a very professional group with no surprises.
The Yoder team will treat your home like it was their own. They insure to hire the best people with high standards. They are constantly keeping me updated on budgets and progress. This is done both verbally and through email and pictures when necessary.
The team is punctual, thorough and make sure to clean up at the end of each day’s work. I can highly recommend Yoder Homes for all kinds of home building remodels and developments.
They are a high-quality organization that stands behind their work.”

“We are a European couple who have used the excellent services of Yoder Homes for first of all a remodel of a Historic house AND the construction of a new private home for ourselves.
If we would ever build again, we would certainly use the professional help from Mr. Denny again. He is a friendly man, is very knowledgeable, is correct in prices thinks as "being the customer" himself) and uses the best skilled crews. Even if you are not present during the time the remodel is being done, every detail is taken care of, just as Mr. Denny would do for himself. The project was calculated for 9 months but they finished earlier and that as well was a plus. ”

“We wanted to bring a dated house up to date with cabinetry, etc. and also wanted to make better use of the interior space. We hired Yoder, instead of the two referrals we had gotten, based on promptness, vision, a sense of integrity and honesty, and a realistic budget estimate. We went from a 3BR/3BA to a 4BR/3BA with a bigger kitchen/living room area all in the same square footage. Our project manager was always available to answer questions, proactive about potential problems, and there was a constant flow of tradesmen working on the house. Sometimes they even had to hound us for answers because we were slacking on decisions that we had to make. Our experience with Yoder is that they were on the ball at all times, they are ethical, and do quality work at a fair price.”

“Denny Yoder and his staff are the consummate professionals! They are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of construction, large & small. We had Yoder Homes do multiple projects for us at 2 different homes over 5 years. We were completely satisfied! The staff was pleasant and responsive to all our needs. The finished project was perfect! We do not hesitate to recommend them for any size project.”

“Working with Yoder Homes during our complete home renovation has been a true pleasure. They were always respectful in communications, timely in their responses and did a fantastic job moving walls, building a new kitchen, renovating bathrooms and floors, painting, electrical...everything!!! I was out of town for most of the renovation and relied completely on their professionalism to get things done. They had to coordinate many trades so deadlines were important since i wasn't there to supervise. I would highly recommend their services!!!”

“My wife and I have built 3 homes and extensively remodeled two others over the past 25+ years. Working with Denny Yoder at Yoder Homes for the 1st time to completely remodel and reconfigure our 1500+ sq ft condo in Sarasota was a pleasure. The remodeling was completed to the highest degree of quality... on time...and on budget! Denny's contract proposal included "realistic" allowances for cabinetry, plumbing fixtures, lighting, and tiling...not low-ball allowances that might encourage us to contract with him but would undoubtedly lead to $$$$$$ overages. Our project included removing walls, all flooring, (2) bathroom remodels, closets where there were none, and a complete kitchen remodel. And 90% of design was Denny's and his staff's ideas. Without hesitation would we hire Yoder Homes again!”

“Yoder homes employed the highest level of professionals I have ever had the privilege of working with on a home build or remodel. They set high expectations of the sub-contractors they work with and follow up on the quality of work at every step. The job supervisor was here frequently and answered all of our question in an expeditious manner. They were complete professionals and the quality of work has met and exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend them to anyone that is considering a remodel and we are going to be using them again in the very near future.”

"From start to finish the remodeling of our great room, kitchen and utility areas was done in a timely and professional manner through Yoder Homes (Denny Yoder), Job Site Manager Scott Gromen and each tradesperson involved in the project. There was consistent attention paid to details and quality of workmanship as well as any questions we had as the job progressed. The calendar provided to us by Scott was followed nearly perfectly, and he was constantly overseeing the project. Our once "dated" condominium has been transformed into a modern home with the help of Denny Yoder and his very professional associates. They come highly recommended by us."

"Thank you for everything! What an easy, wonderful experience it has been. (It astounds me that I can actually say those words. That has NEVER happened before. A real credit to you and your crew.) When I get back from finally seeing my husband (sometime this Fall), I'd like to get together with you and start planning Phase II. (to hopefully happen in January if you can pencil me in) Again, thank you so much for your professional job. You can be sure I will pass along the Yoder Homes name. Have a great Summer."
- Stephanie Abrams

 

Denny & Crew of Yoder Homes:
“We are so delighted with our new kitchen! We see amazing workmanship and spotless finishing. We thank you for all the professional finishing and exceptional attention to detail. Foremen and crew alike were a pleasure to work with.”
Sincerely,
Brian & Nancy

"All of our expectations were met and then some. An experience that I was dreading turned out to be a very positive one. I can't say enough about Yoder Homes, it was a real pleasure working with you and your trade partners. I love the new addition. Thanks again for everything."
- Sincerely Sally & Jim Fuller

 

"Dear Denny, We thank you for the beautiful remodel of our bathrooms and laundry room, as well as tile work and upgrades to our kitchen. Your people were respectful and communicative, especially Scott Gromen. Rich Delaney did an outstanding job with our cabinet installation, effectively heading off problems before they occurred and using his expertise to ensure a perfect installation. We heartily recommend your services to anyone looking to undertake a home remodeling project, especially if they enjoy being involved in the process. "
- Lavonne and Jim Shedivy

 

"Yoder Homes & Remodeling completed an internal remodel of our home in late 2008. Throughout, my husband and I found Denny Yoder professional, competent and reliable as were all of his tradesmen. Communications were excellent, in view of the fact that we live in the UK, this could have been quite difficult. However, with regular e-mails and telephone calls, the process was simple. I even chose my new staircase on the internet, sitting in my study in the UK. Denny dealt with all permitting issues and completed new ceilings, construction, new bathrooms, kitchens and cabinetry. Denny fitted new floor tile and trim throughout. Our home was repainted, and all lighting was renewed. Denny also oversaw refurbishment of our pool and spa and some external cosmetic changes. He worked well with our other tradesmen, notably the company installing our media, who I can also highly recommend. The crew were sympathetic and courteous to my neighbours and the requirements of the housing association. Everything was left clean and all construction debris was removed and even the driveway cleaned. Nothing was too much trouble, even filling the fridge before our christmas arrival. I cannot recommend Denny, Shawn and the team highly enough. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch."

"We highly recommend Yoder Homes, LLC for any and all remodeling needs. They renovated a high-rise condo for us and overcame unforeseeable plumbing problems that would have defeated a less capable contractor. We were very satisfied with both the high quality of their work and by the excellent way they related to us and to the condo management personnel during the renovations."
- Jerry and Anna Bedford, Renaissance, Sarasota

 

As I have mentioned to you before, we are very happy with the quality and timeliness of the work your company completed for us. We would be happy to serve as a reference for your company in the future.”
-Tony

 

Dear Denny,
“Once again, thanks for the great service and very satisfying results in the remodel of our bedroom/bath. Your guys are a terrific group and great to have worked with. I have to mention Dan who was very thoughtful in coordinating the job.”Thanks and keep up the good work,
Bill and Anne

 

"We hired Yoder Homes to do a commercial renovation of our two bathrooms at our community pool. We had an interior flooding problem that was getting worse by the day and the entire floor had to be ripped out and regraded to a central floor drain. In addition, the moisture had travelled up the walls and created a real issue. The partitions were warping and rusted and totally replaced. All the work was done correctly and all items on our proposal completed to our specs. We couldn't be happier! The workers were very neat and clean and respectful of all the residents at the pool. Excellent company and I highly recommend them!"
-Carol Auricchio

 

"The Yoder Team helped take our kitchen renovation from concept to design to execution with expert guidance along the way. They adjusted the plans on the fly to meet our changing wish list and it turned out better than we imagined. They not only improved our kitchen, but transformed our home by opening up load-bearing walls, digging new footings and putting a beam in the attic - a real challenge in a 1949-built home. With their team's experience and expertise, they figured out how to best construct an island with a bench seat design and floating solid wood shelves - the unique touches that make it special. We couldn't be happier with the results!"

 

"Yoder Homes did the remodel/update of our Condo in downtown Sarasota. Most of the plans were made long distance over the phone and internet. We have used many contractors and had not very pleasant experiences. Denny and his crew were GREAT! I do not have a single complaint. They completed the job in the time they said they would and did high quality work. They were one step ahead on each task, made little fixes without being asked. I felt that Yoder homes went the extra mile and did a great job. There is no doubt in my mind that if we need anything else in Sarasota, Denny would be our first choice. I only wish we could get him to build a house for us in Montana!"

 

"We hired Yoder Homes to do a complete remodel of our 1965 ranch on Bird Key. This was the 4th time we were going to hire a builder, so we had lots of experience. I interviewed 4 local builders and chose Yoder Homes based on Angie List reviews, price, professionalism and management skills.

They were outstanding! They actually used project management software to list out all tasks associated with the project, with timelines, dates, contractor info, etc. There was a "foreman" Bill that showed up promptly at 7:50am every morning. Bill managed all aspects of the day-to-day activity that was to be done and kept us completely informed of progress. Scott was our Project Manager, he was on sight at some point to check in almost every day. Scott and Bill were available to answer any questions 24/7.

Everyone that worked for Yoder Homes was respectful, professional, prompt and extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of construction.

They did an outstanding job and finished 2 weeks ahead of schedule!

I highly recommend them and would hire them again!!! "
