This may be a bit unconventional as I am not even a customer (yet). However, I wanted to write and just let you know how impressed I was with our first visit. New Construction is a new concept for us to even be one of our options and we had no idea where to even start. I fell in love with a house (that didn’t quite meet our needs) and asked our Realtor to find out who the builder was. We asked if it was customary for builders to even entertain the idea of meeting with clients that may or may not proceed down that path and that’s when she jumped in and set up our initial in-person meeting. WOW. First – I am a people person and find more value in people than I do in things or facts. Second – as much of a people person I am, people can often make me feel uncomfortable – especially in a situation I am untrained and unfamiliar. Meeting Dan and Scott was an enjoyable experience from the second we walked into the model home. They were welcoming, informative, friendly and just good guys! They made us feel at ease – answered our questions, no matter how complex or just silly – and shared personal stories and examples for us to relate. They worked as a team and played on their individual strengths to ensure the best answer was given, regardless of who gave it. Most importantly, both Dan and Scott came across as GENUINE, SINCERE, and above all else, seemed complete with INTEGRITY. There is nothing that makes me feel stronger to work with someone than these characteristics. We have a bunch of moving parts regarding price points, space and lot size – mixed with resell options and locations…but I must say, just meeting Dan and Scott makes me want to choose New Construction ‘yesterday’. I hope we decide this is what is best for our family – just so we can get the opportunity to work with such an amazing team. Thank you for being a part of our decision making process.
A reputable builder with a solid track record of performance. It is all about the people, and you can rest assured, these guys are pros!
I highly recommend Clay Street Builders! Building a new home can be very stressful, but building with Clay Street didn’t feel that way. Elliot, Dan, Scott, and Frank are truly wonderful guys (both personally and professionally) and enjoyable to work with. From the very beginning, they really listened to what we told them we wanted in our home and they ensured that we got it. They strive to make everything right and the home owner happy. I felt well informed and valued throughout the entire process. Additionally whenever I had questions, I could text, call, or email them directly and they always responded in a very timely manner.
Everyone at Clay Street worked hard to get things done on time…which was important to us since we were renting and on a tight timeline. They even finished our home ahead of schedule! We are extremely happy with the finished product and would build with them again if the situation ever arose. You will not be disappointed when you choose Clay Street Builders. From start to finish, they make the process enjoyable! Once again, I highly recommend Clay Street!
Working with Clay Street Builders was an amazing experience. Everyone on their team went the extra mile in making sure we understood the building process as well as assisting in the blueprint construction as well as our selections. They were with us every step of the way in building our Dream Home and we would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone who is in the market to build a new home!
Clay Street Builders are absolute perfectionists in every way. Dan Kaufmann is one himself and demands perfection from all of his subs. He also has many innovative ideas. We couldn’t be more pleased and would certainly recommend Clay Street Builders to anyone who is looking for a great home builder.

After the recent bad weather (earthquake and rain) it was reported that the Owners Clubhouse had a very bad leak in the roof. After call numerous roofing contractors, and told it would be weeks before they could come out and look at our problem, the Association called Dan Kaufmann. He responded quickly, had a roofer out the next day, fixed the minor problem with the roof. At the same time he had a drywall person start the work around the fireplace inside the clubhouse, this was completed quickly and Dan stayed in touch to insure that the work was satisfactory to the Association. Thank you Dan!
