"We first met Micky at an open house. We went in only because, from the outside the house looked different from every other house we'd seen in the past 2 years. Upon walking through the front door, we knew we'd found our answer. While we did not buy that particular house, we broke ground on our Dream Builders custom home in June. Micky worked closely with us from beginning to end. We spent a great deal of time discussing exactly what we were looking for and what was important to us, so that we could narrow it down to a vision. Micky's connection to some of the best in the construction business (framers, painter, trim and cabinet maker) allowed that vision to come to fruition WITHIN OUR PRICE RANGE!

Micky clearly loves to build houses. He does the job with the enthusiasm of a hobby, yet his dedication is relentless. As first time home builders, we had plenty of questions and confusion. He patiently guided us through the process with honesty, accountability and constant availability. Because of this, I believe we were able to build exactly what we wanted, at a much higher level of quality than we expected, and without once going over our original budget. In fact, we were able to come out below budget! It is not enough to simply say that we highly recommend his services. Looking back, there is not one thing I would have changed about the process. We are truly honored to have worked with him."

Dream Builders Bender"I am writing today to offer my thoughts in recommending Dream Builders and Micky Brafford for your upcoming project.  I have worked with Mr. Brafford on several projects large and small beginning in approximately August of 2011.
In the time I have worked with Mr. Brafford and his associates I have known them to not just be honest, but ethically sound.  His company works diligently to complete projects in a timely manner, without sacrificing quality.  We have known Dream Builders to always pay their bill on time and currently maintain an open line of credit with us.
In closing, I'd like to add that Mr. Brafford has always been open and transparent in all of our business dealings.  His organization goes the extra mile to ensure no questions go unanswered and all parties involved are on the same page.

Yours Truly,

Dream Builders German American Bank"I have had the pleasure of working with Mick on several of his residential construction projects.  The quality of his work has been excellent in our experience.  From a bank's perpective, we have not had to worry about cost overruns or deviations from the planned draw schedule.  His timeliness and attention to detail helps to ensure that projects move forward without interruption.
When working with potential customers that have not already selected a builder, we would always give a recommendation to meet with Mick and his staff at Dream Builders.
