"A Reputation to Build On".
We were very fortunate to find Dave to build our house. Right from the first meeting we knew, he is the one! (And we interviewed several high-end builders for this job). Dave's best characteristics, after his professionalism, are his honesty and reliability. His attention to detail and thinking 10 steps ahead were impressive not only to us, but also for every trade who worked on this project. He always acted in our best interest, trying to get the best quality at the best price. We could absolutely rely on his great attention to choosing the trades and making our wishes his highest priority. On the other side he always provided a helping hand and experienced advice, from planning to construction, and even home decoration. The building process is never easy, especially for such a high tech home as ours, but he was never afraid to research details and then implement new products or technologies. Dave was always there for us to make this process less stressful and more enjoyable. We could call him with any questions that were on our minds at any time of the day, evening, or weekend, and he would find the time to provide a solution to just about anything. He is such a universal individual that has a great sense of responsibility and pride in the final product. On the other hand, he does appreciate not only the customer but also the people that he works with, which shows in the great quality and effort that every other trade was putting forward in trying to satisfy his high quality standards. We definitely would recommend him for any type of challenging project in the future, and if we ever will build again he would be our only choice.
As the result, we not only found an excellent builder but also a good friend, and wish him all the best in his future career.

Glen Oak Homes, what an exceptional crew!! Dave was part of creating our luxurious log cabin for us. (Scandinavian style)
He was able to see our vision in what we wanted and exceeded our expectations. We could definitely say that Dave and his crew took pride in what they did and was professional in every way showing their craftsmanship in the finished project which turned out with the flair and exquisite style of an Adirondack lodge.
Thank you Dave

Our experience with Dave Lederer and Glen Oak Homes has been excellent on all levels. We would not hesitate to recommend Dave and his crew to anyone wishing to build a new, quality home or who is thinking about renovating their current home.
Dave, we have been in our house now for over five years, and want to thank you and your tradesmen for creating a home we continue to love. The old saying, "a thing of beauty is a joy forever" certainly holds true in our case – the superiority of the construction of our home never ceases to delight and amaze us.
The entire project was pleasant and exciting because we had complete confidence in your ability right from the first meeting. We knew we had the right person for us, because you actually listened to and embraced our ideas which concerned crafting a setting for our antique and period furnishings. You were anxious to learn about period styles, and how proportions, moldings, and other such details really mattered to us and the vision we were trying to create. You made us completely confident that all things were possible and that you would do your best to execute whatever design plans we had in mind.
We were also so impressed with the talented and hard working tradesmen who worked with you and those whom you subcontracted. The work site was always neat and clean and the craftsmen always respectful and well-mannered. They always demonstrated complete respect for you as a leader and confidence in your abilities, and it was obvious to us that the relationships you had with them were loyal and strong. All the elements of the construction fell into place with perfect timing and minimal schedule disruption, indicating your superior ability to anticipate, organize and manage people.
Dave, it was such a joy to work with you and we know that we can continue to call on you and your expertise when considering changes or additions to our home. When we hear of anyone wishing to build or renovate, we would never hesitate to recommend you. Thanks again, and we wish you and your tradesmen many more successful projects.

David Lederer is Sir Christopher Wren, Michelangelo, and Mike Holmes all rolled into one. He turned our basement from a concrete cavern into a comfortable TV/family room. Dropped ceilings and heating ducts were just a palette for his creativity. Fireplace tiling, surround sound, even the way he cut the baseboard trim at an angle to fit snugly rather than just butt into each other illustrate his attention to detail. All this and he was on time and on budget. What more could a home owner ask for??
