Testimonials

We had some house plans that we were very determined to use and we found a old flyer on a power pole that said “Raven Custom Homes” with some awesome looking custom houses. Come to find out it was an old flyer and they had an even better updated one! So we went in to the Selma office and right away we fell in love with just the regular office floor plan! We knew right away with a little pushing out of a few walls, it was the perfect plan for our American dream country custom home. We had people stopping by when they were building the house who said they have never seen such above and beyond work. Raven Custom Homes focused on detail with everything from the framing caulking the outer walls to help seal cold or hot air in your home (depending on the season), to the fine details in the kitchen upgrades, to awesome surround sound, alarm, security cameras, and lighting is phenomenal with the new LED lighting throughout the home (garage to the kitchen). They even worked in grading the house pad, as well as the septic and drilling of the well for us. One thing that sold us on the house was the upfront truth about hidden cost, upgrades, architectural draft of your plans, school fees and yes even PG&E, that other home builders didn’t want to tell; instead those others will just sell ya on the $98 a square foot plan. Raven is your Builder if you’re looking for a great custom home to last a lifetime! From the awesome team they have put together to help with lighting, flooring, raised bars, spice rack corbels to custom bathroom, showers, and tubs. Look no further for honesty, and a stress free process. Besides trying to decide what looks good with this tile and granite to wall and carpeting colors, they help take the edge off! Don’t stress on the construction part of it…things happen and with Raven there are site plan foreman and workers to jump in and straighten whatever comes your way! They want you happy and they stand behind their work: from the walk through, to touch ups, and awesome warranty. They include a year walk through, allowing time and letting the house settle. Great job guys! We’re Blessed to have selected Raven Custom Homes.”

We chose Raven Custom Homes (RCH) to build our custom home in 2013-14 primarily due to RCH’s previously built beautiful homes along with Corbyn’s great personality. Our home consisted of two homes, a main home and a mother in-law home situated behind the main home. The main home consisted of 3925 sq. ft., 4 bed, 3 1/2 bath, 3 car garage and a man cave. The mother in-law home consisted of 507 sq. ft 1 bed, 1 bath, a kitchen and a sitting room, which was being built at the same time our main home was being built.

Corbyn, the owner of Raven Custom Homes was a true professional throughout the whole building process. He built us our dream home as requested and at times when the contractors and/or his staff didn’t complete the job correctly he would stand by his word and fix the issue at hand to both of our satisfactions. The home turned out greater than our expectations and the only reason why RCH didn’t get 5 stars is due to the length of time to build the home was greater than originally informed. Though at the end, the home is absolutely beautiful and we are very happy with selecting RCH for our builder. Thus, its with great pleasure, appreciation and dedication to Corbyn that we recommend RCH to be your next builder! ”

We are pleased with the high quality of work with Raven Custom Homes and would highly recommend them as a builder. There has been exceptional attention to detail. The quality of construction and their follow up to any concern has been exemplary. The entire team has been very helpful. Our sales experience was outstanding and the process was clear, fair and equitable. Their word has been their bond throughout the process thus far and that is truly exceptional in this industry.”

Craig and Karen Little.

When we decided to build our dream house, we interviewed several builders. After interviewing each one, viewing the craftsmanship of their work and speaking with their clients, we made the wisest decision of the entire project, selecting Raven Custom Homes as our builder. Corbyn and the team were with us every step of the way from planning, to the build and beyond. They listened to us, incorporated our ideas into a wonderful plan that met our living and budget expectations, and offered suggestions, based upon their vast experience, to enhance our dream home. From start, to finish, and beyond, we could not be more pleased with the Raven Team. Should we ever find ourselves in need of building another home, we will make only one call, to Corbyn Raven at Raven Custom Homes.”

I built my custom home with Raven Homes and I just love it! Corbyn & his Company are always helpful, informative, friendly and easy to work with. I also appreciate how they guarantee their workmanship and stand behind their products and homes. Without a doubt, I recommend Raven Homes as your builder.”

When you get a Raven home, you get quality. They kept to their schedule and it was a smooth transaction. The open floor plan makes the house desirable and the folks at Raven were great to work with helping with allot of the interior design decisions.”

Jim Aartman.

Our family has loved living in our Raven built home for nearly seven years. If ever we decide to build again, we would go right back to Raven Custom Homes. Our experience building our first home was terrific. Corbyn and his entire team were friendly, professional, and honest. We felt like we were part of the team, not just clients. In fact, some friends of ours were building a home at the same time that we were. They started the process months earlier than we did and our project was moving along MUCH more quickly. Our friends asked if we would recommend our builder to them because of all the trouble they were having with their builder. They ended up switching to Raven and their project finished shortly after ours. Not to mention, the entire building phase was enjoyable, not stressful as we thought it would have been. Not only did Raven Custom Homes help us to stay within our budget, but the finished home was filled with beautiful detail, upgraded finishes, and truly is customized to what we desired. Our home is a blessing to us and we are so happy with the outcome.”

Jim & Shannon Farmer.

We have lived in our custom built home for just over two years now. The level of professionalism was incredible during and after the build. Raven Homes builds a quality product that you would hope to get with a custom home. When people ask me why I recommend this company I can give them two reasons: 1. Attention to detail. 2. Customer service. I have called Raven Homes for follow-up work since we have moved in, and It is phenomenal to have the Raven Homes team know you by name. They have treated us like their most important customer. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to build that dream home. We have had a very positive experience which seems to be an uncommon situation amongst home building these days. Mike Padilla is one of the most customer friendly staff members I have ever met. Corbyn has hired a great staff who does great work, because let’s face it, Corbyn isn’t swinging hammers these days!”

The Pursell Family.

We chose Raven as our home builder because they had a basic floor plan that we loved and they were able to make changes to it fit our lifestyle. Corbyn was always willing to sit with us for extended hours to make sure he understood our wants and needs. The Raven team was always friendly and respectful and fun, we always enjoyed being around them. They are not just our homebuilder, we now consider them trusted friends.”

Colin & Gloria.

We are retiring this year and finally built the home we have always dreamed of. Everybody at Raven Homes made our home building a pleasure thru out the entire process. I have been in the building industry for years and must say that Raven Homes ranks at the top of our list. We really liked the suggestions on how to make the house better than what our plans showed. They build each home as if it was going to be their own. The quality is “superior” to any of the last 4 homes we have had built for us. Retired and Loving Our New Home, What else is there to say!!!!! Anybody wanting to build a home can ask Corbyn Raven for my phone number and I will gladly answer any questions or show you our home.”

Tom and Sue Taylor.

Corbyn built us the home of our dreams to make room for our growing family. The customer service is still top shelf, seven years later. The next Raven home we build will be the home we retire in and pass on to our kids.”

Brandon and Renee S..

Our family is blessed to be living in a Raven Custom Home. We met with several other builders and quite frankly none could offer the product or experience we received. The Raven operation is one of trust and devotion that helped our family realize our housing goals and dreams. After our first meeting, we knew Corbyn Raven would be our builder. With Raven Homes it was a very personal experience. Corbyn helped us through the planning and selection process personally and made sure we were getting what we wanted while keeping an eye on the budget. Here is where Raven Custom Home’s business ethic shines. Other builders we spoke with gave us a very basic product and we could tell they wanted to “ up sell” us to death during the building process. Cobyn was genuine, honest and fair with our family on the upgrades and changes and gave us more than we expected when it came to standards. Building is a very stressful time no matter who you choose to build your home with. Building is an adventure of mind, soul and wallet. Corbyn Raven delivered on his promises. We are very proud to own a Raven Custom Home and would highly recommend them to our friends, family and associates. Quality, Integrity and Fairness are used as advertising punch lines these days. At Raven Homes those items are included in their standards.”
