Modern or Contemporary in your Luxury Home

Property Management

If you own a luxury home, you probably have a certain touch to it that is all your own. You may have made this modern, or contemporary, depending on your taste. You may enjoy subtle overtones, or mixing a certain culture into your home that is unique to you and your family. Like we have said in many previous posts, we’ve seen quite a few luxury homes, so we can see different tastes come out in each home.

One of our current customers was over at our offices a few weeks ago, and was talking about a custom home that is being built for them in Prescott Valley, Arizona by a luxury home builder that specializes in making each home unique. www.nankeluxuryhomes.com is run by John Nanke, who has been a luxury home builder for over 20 years, and has a family line of custom home builders in the state of Arizona. When we spoke with John and his son, Jared about their projects, what leapt off the page at us was the detail that they put into each project that they take on. Not only do they cater to everyone unique needs, but they will go to great lengths to get the kind of materials that everyone wants to add to their home.

One project that they detailed was especially fascinating in that there was a custom fireplace that had small little bits of a special tile that had to be cut into 1 inch square pieces, which meant that they were adding over 1,000 small pieces of this special tile to the fireplace. The attention to detail that we saw in this project was especially interesting, and it made us wonder if other luxury home building companies took that much care or time in figuring out what their clients wanted.

Most builders simply throw up cookie cutter homes, where the home buyer can choose a few upgrades, but they don’t have the ability to really choose anything custom that would go into their home. We have seen some builders in the recent past change their philosophies to keep up with the other builders who are pushing the envelope a bit more. When the industry is filled with companies that build more than 1,000 homes per year, it’s nice to find family owned businesses like the Nanke’s who have dug out a niche in building custom homes around a buyer’s needs.

Really, you can call these people designers or architects more than anything. While they are very good at building things, their trained eye and imagination helps them bring customers dreams to life.

Most people who are building their dream home might not think about the little things, so it’s nice to have builders that are thinking for them, and asking the right questions about a project!
