This was my facebook post on September 9th, 2016. “3 years of planning and dreaming, 1 year and 1 day of being “homeless”, 10 thousand text, email and phone calls with Jeff (you will miss me). Mat and I now have OUR house the one we dreamed up and designed!! Oh and his barn. Thank you SO MUCH Jeff Wieland and Shannon. You and everyone at Wieland Builders made our dream come true!” Being in the real estate business I have seen a lot of houses and you have a lot of ideas in my head of what I wanted in my “dream” house. My husband, Mat and I worked on that vision for 3 years and then decided we were ready to make it reality. I know many of the builders in Cincinnati either personally or from reputation and building quality but in June of 2015 we picked Jeff Wieland and Wieland Builders to go on this journey with us. Jeff sat down with Mat and me and listened to what WE wanted, something that not every builder does. He walked many many lots with us, told me I was crazy a few times for thinking I wanted a certain lot. We finally found the perfect lot for us, until a few weeks later when Jeff called me, it could not have been an easy call for him, to tell me that our lot was not going to be buildable. At that point we were going to be homeless in two months and we had no lot ughh. Three months later after walking more lots, some with Jeff some without, we found our lot. During those three months Jeff was in contact with us the whole time, he got with the architect with our cut and paste floor plan so they could start designing our home, worked on pricing, answered question after question after question. He always made us feel important even though at that point he didn’t even have a contract with us. Finally, in May of 2016 our house was started. This was the 3rd house we have built, first completely custom, and honestly the smoothest build we have ever done.Jeff was onsite, answered my phone calls, text, and emails even on Saturday night, called me out when my text were a little to direct or “bitchy”, which I needed sometimes. We had some “heated” conversations but in the end everything was resolved and everyone was happy. I had most of the communication with Jeff so when Mat called or text it meant something was really bothering him. Jeff always handled it with kid gloves and made Mat understand what was going on and what needed or would be done to correct it. I honestly have to say Jeff is one of the hardest workers I have seen. Eight o’clock on a Thursday night we stopped at the house to find Jeff in our front yard still seeding and strawing, Sunday afternoons we would come out and could tell Jeff had just left. The best was on Saturday morning at 10:30 when I got a text from him with pictures of our beams up in our family room saying looking great. What builder does that? Jeff that is who does that. It put the biggest smile on my face knowing that he was excited for us. As we sat in closing Mat looked over at Jeff and said I would absolutely build with you again. First of all knowing my husband that was not typical for him to say, second I have sat in many new construction closings where the builder doesn’t even show up because the tension between builder and client at that point is unbearable. So for my husband to say at that moment and now a month later that he would build with Jeff Wieland again tells you more than anything I wrote above. Jeff is an amazing person and an outstanding builder and deserves to be recognized for that.
