A Few Words From Our Clients

Customer satisfaction is our life blood.

ver the course of our 40+ years in home building, we have been blessed with the opportunity to work with some fantastic folks. Families, retirees, vacationers and everyone in between have used our services to bring their visions to life and provide them with a custom home built with the highest standards and dedication to excellence. Below you will find some comments that we have been sent recently, and we are humbled by the appreciation that others have for our efforts.

“We have been in our home, built by Ken Kiser Custom Island Homes, since March 2017. We could not be more pleased with the entire experience. In my opinion, he exceeded our expectations throughout the complete process. His customer relationship is excellent. We highly recommend Ken Kiser to anyone considering building a custom home in this area.”

Randy & Lynn Hartzoge

“When we decided to build our beach home, we spent a lot of time evaluating home designs and contractors. We felt that Ken Kiser offered the best combination of unique design and quality construction. Ken has an amazing sense of design and offered unique insights, which were extremely valuable during the entire process. As we were not able to be present for most of the building, Ken went above and beyond to evaluate ideas we had and help turn them into our beautiful home. The home building process can be very overwhelming, but Ken seamlessly moved us through and assisted us every step of the way. The end product is a collaborative effort on a home that we are very proud to call ours.”

“Several years ago, I decided to build a home in Oak Island. Given that I am a medical (public health) researcher, I used my skills to pinpoint the best builder. I researched the various builders online, read every comment I could find about their craft, talked to locals, toured some of Kiser’s end products, and met with several of the local builders in person … I ended up choosing Ken Kiser to build my beach home. It was a very wise choice. Ken was responsive to my requests, adhered to the timeline and costs we agreed upon, and built a beautiful, custom home. I was away for most of this process since I had a job that required year-round travel. At some junctures, I simply deferred to him to make certain choices since I did not have the time and could not be there. He did not disappoint. The home was beautiful. And the workmanship was high quality. I highly recommend his company as your builder of choice. You will not be disappointed.”

“Ken and his team exceeded all our expectations while helping us build our dream home. This was the second house that we’ve designed and built, so we had very high standards and very detailed requirements. Ken and his team had us in awe when we saw the finished house for the first time. The extra details like: rounded sheet rock corners, detailed crown molding, and finished front pilings really makes our house stand apart from the other builders.

We are from Connecticut, which had us concerned about building while being 800 miles away. Ken and his team did an amazing job of keeping us updated on the progress and making us feel well connected to the building process. We were one of the smaller houses they were building, but we never felt any less important. We especially appreciated the partnership and personal attention throughout the process.

My wife and I are thankful that we had the opportunity to partner with Ken and his team on this journey. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and we highly recommend them to anyone looking to build their home!”

“We first contacted Ken several years ago when we owned a 3rd row home on OKI and began thinking of building an oceanfront home. We have built and remodeled many homes before but realized how difficult it would be to build while living 415 miles away. Therefore, based upon Ken’s excellent reputation and the quality of the homes he builds we decided to go with Ken and his team. Ken worked with us on a home style that would best fit our needs and provided several options, showing us several homes he either had built or were under construction. He explained how we could modify any of his plans or provide our own plans to meet our goal. In the end we built a beautiful 6br; 6.5ba oceanfront home.

Building from afar can be challenging but Ken and his team helped us thru the process making it as painless as possible. Most important to us is the follow-on support Ken and his team continue to provide to this day. Eric has been a true professional and very responsive when it comes to providing help and advice. Ken and his entire team go over and above in genuinely standing behind their homes. It is clear why their moto; “we build homes as if we were going to live in them” is so true! The strongest confirmation of our satisfaction is the fact that we are considering building an additional home on OKI with Ken Kiser. Without hesitation we strongly endorse Ken Kiser Homes.”

Sue & Jim Fitzpatrick

“I can’t begin to say what a delightful process this was. Ken and Eric were in constant communication with us about what was happening and every decision that needed to be made. They were always available any time we had questions or just wanted to talk about an idea. Ken’s many years of experience and ability to visualize things saved us from making a bad decision on more than one occasion. You can see the quality and pride in their craftsmanship in every aspect of the house. All of the vendors they use are high quality, knowledgeable people who go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. Everything came in on budget and never once did we get any “surprises” like you hear about with other builders. Thank you Ken, Eric and Bob…..the house turned out more beautiful than we could have ever imagined!”

Crissy & Chad Martin (and Winston too!)

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.”

Jon and Sandra Kell

“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!!”
