Ken Kiser is one of those rare people that you just know from the moment you meet him you are going to get exactly what he promises.

We completed our entire contract over a couple of phone calls and then let the paperwork "catch up" . A year and a half later Ken and his superintendent continue to follow up even the smallest of issues. My wife Krisite and I have to pinch ourselves everytime we visit Ken's beautiful work

Ken built a 6-bedroom rental property for us last year. I used to design and build custom homes myself, and I am particular about how things are built. I spent some time talking to three builders, and selected Ken after seeing some of his work completed and in progress. We were 110% satisfied with the results. Ken provided many extra details that he does as a normal matter, details I don't see in other homes. Quality of work, good taste, fair and reasonable pricing, honesty, integrity - Ken Kiser has it all. Our friends and relatives are tired of hearing us brag about him - until they see the results.

As we are at the end of our building project with our new beach home, Diana and I wanted to take a moment to thank- you and your crews for the great job done on our home. We're really enjoying our home and are very happy with our results we received from you and your company. In general, building a home can be overwhelming; you were great at walking us thru the process. What I was most pleasantly surprised at, was your tirelessly effort at helping me get the necessary permits for my lot, so we could build. As you know at one time it looked as though I would not be able to build on my lot(wetlands). At that point we were getting a little discouraged, Thanks for helping us thru that. And lastly, Diana and I are not wealthy people and we were a little worried that having chosen "the best builder on the Island" you were going to be expensive. We really recognize what a deal we got by using you as our builder. We know we got more than we paid for!!

Thanks again,

Tim and Diana Glasson

My husband and I had a great experience working with Ken to build our home.  He is an exceptionally qualified builder whose years of experience enabled him to accurately estimate the cost of our build, complete every phase on schedule, and address every issue that arose.  He was also extremely pleasant to work with and he made the process stress-free for us.  He was involved in every detail of our build and was constantly accessible to us (as long-distance clients) through e-mail, texting, and phone calls.  He was also incredibly flexible, accommodating our desire to retain as many trees on our site as possible, graciously complying with HOA policies that posed cumbersome restrictions on the build process, and allowing us to make a number of minor design changes during the build.  Our house turned out absolutely beautifully and Ken’s exceptional craftsmanship is evident to everyone who sees it.  We highly recommend him to anyone interested in a high quality custom home.


Building a home at Oak Island has been a wonderful experience, especially as absentee home owners. Ken Kiser and his crew are very experienced builders.
But most important is the integrity and quality not just from the workmanship, but the entire crew as well. Communication was always open and Ken made us feel as if we were there on the job site. We certainly hope to experience building with Ken again!

Ken built our house as if it were his own. Great quality and meticulous attention to detail. Best of all, he is very responsive and reliable. Ken made us feel like we were his only customers. We would definitely build with Ken again.

All the best, Niko

We knew the first time we met Ken Kiser that he was the contractor for us. He guided us through the process, paying attention to details and making suggestions for a beautiful home. We are pleased with the quality and craftsmanship and are glad we chose Ken.

I had the opportunity to have Ken build a Beach home for us in 2012/13. I have worked in the residential construction industry for 25+ years and was not sure I would be comfortable having someone else build a home for us. Ken did a great job and has stood behind his work. If I was going to do it again I would definitely give Ken a call.


Ken built the perfect beach house for me. The Change of Pace was exactly what I needed. He went beyond what I had envisioned and then some. Ken is oriented to the smallest detail; and I was extremely pleased by how he followed through with my every concern. My sister was so impressed that she had Ken build the beach house of her dreams as well.
