Testimonials

Over the years, we have had the pleasure of making a lot of wonderful relationships with the families who choose us to build their homes. Our clients rely on us for quality construction, attention to details which matter most to them and support to keep the experience of building a new home both organized and rewarding.

As we said, we are very pleased with our new home and your services, and we do appreciate your going above and beyond expectations with some of the items. Our thanks to you and your team for a job well done.

We are very pleased with how well Mike maintained our budget and frequently communicated with us during the home building process. After the sale, he maintains contact with his customers to confirm their continued happiness and satisfaction. We absolutely recommend Spencer Homes.

We lived in our previous home for over 20 years and although we loved what we had, we begin thinking about "right-sizing" into a home which would accommodate us as we grew older. Since entertaining friends and family is a major part of our lives, we knew we wanted an open floor plan with additional outdoor living space. Never would we have dreamed that the search for a new home could be so daunting and boring with nothing but one "cookie style" floor plan after another…and then we met Mike Rathgeb of Spencer Homes. Mike introduced us to his new floor plan Lifestage-Empty Nester.
Somewhat fearful of the work involved in building a new home our fears were quickly laid to rest. Spencer Homes made the process seem effortless. We were provided with a timeline from start to finish, our own personal design consultant to help us coordinate our product and color choices and most importantly consistent communication on a daily/weekly basis. Spencer Homes service level far exceeded our expectations in so many ways!
Best of all, our home was completed ahead of schedule, which we attribute to Mike's personal involvement to the building process and the attention to detail along the way. We could not be happier with our new home and we would strongly encourage and recommend others to build with Spencer Homes.

Spencer Homes made our selection decisions so much easier by providing a personal Design & Selections Specialist. She helped with colors, designs as well as product choices that fit our style & taste. Our kitchen is beautiful & the outdoor living space we gained with the screened patio is wonderful. We are very happy with our new home!

On a scale of 1-10, I would give Mike Rathgeb of Spencer Homes a solid 10. He gave us a home that makes us feel like we are living every day on vacation. Mike worked diligently to keep the cost of our home within the budget we gave him. What is maybe the most important aspect of Mike's process is that he continues to stay in touch with us more than 4 months after we've moved into our house." I would strongly recommend Spencer Homes if you are considering building a custom home.

I want to thank Mike Rathgeb and Michelle Langley and their team at Spencer Homes. The house is great and more than I could have hoped for. Erynn and I love it and are ready to make happy memories here!

After deciding to move to Edwardsville, my wife and I spent many weekends touring the city, subdivisions and houses available for purchase. During this time we had the pleasure of meeting Mike Rathgeb, the owner and president of Spencer Homes. We purchased a Spencer Home that was under roof, but not completed. Working with Mike and his crew, we were able to create a beautiful house that our family is proud to call home. The floor plan works well for us and we were able to add special touches which really make our house unique. From the spectacular kitchen, to the tiled bathrooms, to the detailed wood- work throughout the house - the craftsmanship within our home is second to none. Our family truly loves being a part of this community and the Spencer Homes motto holds true for us – we truly do "love where we live".

The finishing details of your homes are far superior to most other builders. Thank you very much for building this awesome house. We couldn’t be happier with it.

The smartest decision we made in 2015 was the decision to downsize and have Spencer Homes build a one-story home for us that would accommodate our needs for years to come. We moved into our new home in late June of 2016, and five weeks later my husband required unexpected surgery incapacitating him until recently. We are both physically fit and active retirees, and so the surprise of not being able to walk steps or live without limitations was shocking.
Mike Rathgeb, of Spencer Homes, built a home that will allow us to age in place. The quality of the products they use and the workmanship are second to none, and the utility of the home is just what we needed. The walk-in shower with no door, and the fact that there are no steps into the house from either the garage or front door, both allowed my husband to recuperate fully at home. We thought WE would never need those features, or at least if we did it would be years from now, but we were wrong. Health can change in a minute.
Working with Mike and his staff was all we hoped for and more. The communication was always timely, and his staff was very helpful in making choices and pulling colors and designs together. We could not have done it without them. We have friends who when they see our home say – “WOW! Now THIS is a custom, quality-built home, and it is beautiful!” We think so, and have Spencer Homes to thank, and we do. We would HIGHLY recommend them as builders.
