"…It has been two years since we have taken possession and we couldn't be happier…"

Deciding to build our estate home with Audie Benson Estate Homes was a decision we have never regretted. The service they provide was beyond our expectation, from allowing us to join in architectural meetings to assisting us with design elements. At no point during the process did we feel left out or overwhelmed!

The quality of the product was perfect. We have not had any major deficiencies in our home, and the few minor imperfections were addressed immediately.

Working will all the trades was seamless. All trades respected the builders requests, regardless of the task or change. It was great to see such a feeling of family between all the trades and the builder.

It has been two years since we have taken possession and we couldn't be happier. It was a superior experience and we couldn't have asked for anything better!

Dear Audie and Kathleen
David and I can honestly say–from the bottom of our hearts–that our experience working with you was something incredibly special that we'll remember for the rest of our lives. From the very first meeting, you immediately understood that we wanted to build more than a beautiful house; we wanted to build the home of our dreams. With every step, be it planning, building, or finishing, we were constantly amazed at the level of care and compassion you had for us and our home. We wanted to build a place where our children would grow and flourish, where we would entertain and share laughs and happy memories with our friends and family, and where we would enjoy comfort and a little luxury with absolutely all the things a true dream home can offer. In countless examples you raised the bar, and created breathtaking spaces for us that are more beautiful than we could have imagined, more cozy, and more welcoming. We still marvel at how lucky we are to have worked with you. Thank you so much, Audie and Kathleen, and also thank you to your amazing team… they are all artists! Building with you was a true joy! We are so, so thrilled with our gorgeous home.
- Sincerely, Larissa and David

"…when we decided to build a new home, there was no question who our contractor would be…"

It is with great pride that we acknowledge the superb job that Audie Benson Estate Homes did building our new home in Riverstone Pointe. When we decided to build a new home, there was no question who our contractor would be. Audie built our first home for us 19 years ago and his sincerity and attention to detail were the driving forces to have him build our new home in 2007. From planning to completion, no detail was too small for Audie and everyone at Audie Benson Estate Homes. It says a lot when your builder becomes a good friend.

"…an uncanny ability to quickly and effectively resolve any issues that came up during construction…"

We are very pleased with our overall building experience with Audie Benson Estate Homes. We had built with Audie during the recent boom and had heard horror stories about other people's homebuilding misadventures. But our own experience was pleasant and involved minimal, if any, stress. Audie and his team, especially Kim, continuously demonstrated patience and an uncanny ability to quickly and effectively resolve any issues that came up during construction. And, most importantly, the outstanding customer service continued long after we had taken possession. One must also underscore, however the fact that the quality of the workmanship that went into the construction of our home, from framing to finishing, was phenomenal.

"…Audie, Kathleen and Kim handled every detail as if our home was their own…"

Audie and Kathleen, we can't thank you enough for designing and building our beautiful custom home. Because our home was built while we lived in California, it was incredibly important to us that we choose a quality, high-integrity builder who we trusted. Audie far exceeded our expectations. Despite relying on the phone to discuss many details and visiting our home only three times during the building process, we were amazed at how Audie turned our ideas into reality. Kathleen's design assistance was invaluable to us during every step of the process. We are so appreciative that Audie, Kathleen and Kim handled every detail as if our home was their own. We are honoured to have worked with Audie Benson Estate Homes to build the home of our dreams.

"Audie built our home nearly 30 years ago..."

"Audie built our home nearly 30 years ago. His gift of design and his abilities to draw his own blueprints, lay foundations, frame, side, roof and do his own millwork was amazing. His knowledge and experience in so many areas and at such a young age was commendable. It is with great fondness and pride we've watched him do what he loves to do and do it with all his heart. He deserves the success he enjoys."

"...a great team with a wonderful ability to understand their clients..."

Through the years, Audie has designed two dream homes for us, our first in Whitecourt, where we raised our family, and now our current home in Riverstone Pointe, St. Albert. Kathleen's interior decorating expertise was very much appreciated. They are a great team with a wonderful ability to understand their clients and help make their dreams come to fulfillment. We are honored to call them our friends.

"...we had an opportunity to meet many of Audie's clients, and were amazed..."

We had the great pleasure of dealing with Audie Benson when we built our custom home in St. Albert in 1990-1991. He accommodated our special requests in the most professional and comprehensive manner. Our home is very unique, and all aspects were co-coordinated in a fashion that showed that he genuinely cared about every detail, and that our happiness with the final product was his first priority. All of our dealings were up front, honest, and of the highest integrity. This left us feeling extremely comfortable throughout the entire process, and we were able to work within a scenario based on explicit trust.

When we were making our decision as to who we would go with to build our home, we had an opportunity to meet many of Audie's clients, and were amazed at the wonderful reports we received from everyone we met with. This combined with the fact that the quality of home that he produced was unequalled in the market place, made the final decision very easy, and it was certainly the right one.

"...since that first home, my wife and I have worked with Audie to build three more..."

In 1985 I was planning to have my first home built. The first two or three custom home builders I visited in St. Albert did not seem very interested in what I wanted to do. Having been in my early 20's at the time, I was somewhat understanding of their skepticism. At that point, I came into Audie's showhome. He listened to what I was looking for and seemed sincerely interested. We ultimately came to an agreement and started the process of building my new home. Audie really "walked me through" the whole process and I always felt he and his team were looking out for my best interest. Since that first home, my wife and I have worked with Audie to build three more. I started out looking to have a home built and came away with that and good friends.

"...when your builder becomes your lifelong friend, you know two things..."

When your builder becomes your lifelong friend, you know two things: He was an excellent builder and it was a great experience. Since Audie built our home 20 years ago, we have shared weddings, funerals, baptisms, and a trip abroad.
- Dave and Haddie Erisman

"...we were also very impressed with his high standard of quality workmanship..."

Audie has the very special ability of taking ideas and design concepts and turning it into a beautiful home, making our dream a reality. We were also very impressed with his high standard of quality workmanship. Kathleen's help and advice with the interior decorating turned our house into a cozy warm home. Their professionalism and integrity is beyond reproach. We are very happy with the outcome of our home. Thank you Audie and Kathleen.

We are so proud of our home."
