Here's what a few of our clients have had to say:


"Our home building experience with Avent Homes was an enjoyable experience. Art and his team treated us like family and walked us through every step, of what others had told us would be a very painful process, but instead turned out to be very exciting and enjoyable. Many thanks to Art, the many hard workers, and all involved with Avent Homes in building our family a beautiful, well crafted, inviting home that we have been enjoying since!" - Mark & Missy

We love hand-written cards! 

"Being out of the area at the time our house was being built, it was great having a builder that had our complete trust. We listened to most of Art's suggestions and we were happy with the results! Except for our kitchen floor: Art probably doesn't remember, but he tried to talk us out of an expensive tile floor upgrade, but we stood our ground. After it was installed, Art agreed we were right & it looked great!�� We have been more than happy with our Avent home and have received many compliments on how great it looks! We also like to make sure everyone knows it is an Avent product." - Tom & Valerie

"When I saw those little footie things to protect the wood floors and the mesh screens to protect the air ducts, I knew this was the builder for me!  Getting top notch work the way it was promised, this is our dream house, everything is perfect!" - Al & Faye

"We know our house was the best you have ever built!  Thank you for a wonderful home.  We are your biggest fans!" - John & Jeanne

"We are very pleased with our Avent Home!  If we were to build again, you would be our first and ONLY choice as the builder.  You have produced a great house and provided excellent follow-up service whenever we've needed it. Thank you and keep up the good work!" - Eric & Joyce

 

"I was so pleased with all of the suggestions AHI made during construction and the high quality of your work and your subs.  After we moved in and observed the construction of other houses nearby, I appreciated some of the unique things you did - like dry out the inside of the house before hanging drywall and installing wood floors.  My neighbors will wonder why they have all those noises and creaks from the walls and floors in the future!" - David

 

"We have loved living in our AHI custom built home!  It has been 16 years since we've moved in and our home is still as perfect today as when it was built.  We're so proud of our home and would confidently recommend AHI to anyone seeking a builder.  It was such a fun experience working with your company in all the phases of construction. Thanks again!" - Carol

"We continue to love our Avent Home!  We can't thank you enough for what a great building experience we had.  When we hear all of our friends talk about the headaches and problems they've encountered with their builders, we recognize our decision to have AHI build was the right decision!  You truly treated the building of our home as if it were yours!  We will always be appreciative for all the time you spent with us before we even signed a contract when we were finalizing our plans.  It is without reservation that we would recommend Avent Homes to anyone wanting to build a quality custom home!"  - Bill & Sylvia

 

"The special AHI personal touch is really caring about the success of the project and owner satisfaction - at which you are at the top of the list, bar none." - Peter

 

"The entire process of building our custom home was an enjoyable experience.  Art maintains a critical focus on the foundations of the homes he builds as well as the waterproofing.  Art believes in ensuring that the concrete and steel in the foundation is stronger than required by local codes.  To illustrate the benefit of this, at the five year anniversary of moving into our home, we have no wall cracks which would indicate that settling has occurred!  And even during hurricane Isabel, our crawl space remained dry thanks to the planning done by Art to route water away from the structure.  The subs utilized by Avent Homes are superb, and we continue to choose them any time we need modifications or repairs.  Our house was ready on time and was immaculately cleaned.  Art does a final financial reconciliation at the end of the construction process, and in our case, as a net result of the additions and deletions we made during construction, we received a refund check from AHI.  How many builders do you know that will do that?!  Art Avent is one of the most honest and personable individuals we have met, and we are truly blessed that we were able to have him build our home." - Bob & Leslie 

"In relocating to Virginia, we had the fortunate experience to be introduced to AHI.  We were very much impressed with their desire to accommodate our wishes to build a contemporary home.  They fulfilled all of our wishes and more.  The house is so well constructed that after 25 years, we haven't had to replace siding, roofing, window seals or any of the things that many of our neighbors have.  I mention this because all the homes on our street were a part of the HomeArama, built by a different showcase builder to be a model home.  AHI provided this home with gutters, cedar siding, stain instead of paint, and a central vacuum.  We shall continue to recommend Avent Homes to all of our friends and associates." - Leroy and Shirley

 

"Working with AHI was so enjoyable! Their promptness, punctuality, and attention to detail was professional and appreciated, little things that are lacking in other builders it seems.  You took the pain out of the building process.  We could not be happier with the house!  Construction quality was first rate, from major items down to the smallest items like placement of lighting, switches, and bathroom accessories - all carefully thought out and reviewed with us as the customer in mind.  Virtually everyone who has visited us has remarked as to the quality, the flow, and the finish of our home - it is something we are proud of, and that is a testimony to the craftsmanship of your team.  Our punch list, both at occupancy and one year later, was almost non-existent, and the few items that we did have were quickly taken care of.  Please feel free to use us as references and if someone would like to see for themselves the quality of an AHI home, send them our way." - Dan & Lisa
