"We recently celebrated our first anniversary in our home and we still find ourselves stopping in our tracks to look around and marvel at how much we love it. The commitment to design and quality of the work is evident in every room of the house…The sense of warmth was something that my husband and I noted immediately when we first saw our home online. Having relocated once before we did not have high expectations that our online assessment would hold true in person. You can imagine our excitement when we toured the house for the first time and found that everything did indeed measure up to our expectations... While we never intend on leaving this house, the only thing better could be to build a house from scratch with you and your team."

"We approached this project very carefully, understanding that we had to overcome the challenge of building our very first home. We knew how important it would be to find a builder whose communication skills and ability to make decisions would allow this project to be successful. I can only say we were very fortunate in having selected you based on your outstanding previous references and our instincts."

"When my wife and I first started interviewing builders we immediately liked the up-front and honest approach we received from Dave. He was clear from the beginning about his prices including the costs to build, allowances, his fee and specifically what we would be getting for the money. We spoke with a number of other builders who would only give us a per square foot price and a total, but could not answer the simple question of what exactly we would be getting for the money. Dave immediately took the time to understand exactly they style and quality of home we were interested in building, and made sure to account for everything needed to achieve that goal. There were no surprises. Throughout the process Dave was extremely patient with us in making decisions, but was also helpful in making suggestions where he thought we could improve the outcome. Dave’s input and experience lead to an end result that was far better than what we originally envisioned."

"We appreciate the partnership that we developed with Balo Builders throughout the entire building process. Our beautiful home is evidence of your hard work and dedication in translating our vision into reality. You managed the project efficiently and delivered each phase of the project in a timely manner, and always at the highest degree of quality. At the heart of our relationship with Balo Builders was the openness of the communication avd your willingness to address all of our ideas to build our house." - Louis and Melissa W. Elmhurst, IL "In March of 2008, we purchased a pre-built home from Balo Builders and have been extremely satisfied with our experience. We looked at over forty homes in our desired area (Elmhurst, IL) and there was not one other home that provided the quality and mastery of craft like the Balo Builder built home. We have been more than pleased with the communication, cooperation and professionalism we have been offered from the day of our offer, up to even today a year later."

"Your patience and hard work goes way beyond the act of just building a house and you should be commended for that. One of my closest friends, who owns his own construction company, warned me several times about all of the building scams taking place today. I have to admit that I was a little bit nervous being a first timer, but Dave proved to be a person of integrity who exceeded my expectations. He is honest and fair. Once again thank you for all your help, patience and caring for me ad my family."

"Our contract spelled everything out so we knew our budget line in every category. Any time we had questions Dave was always a phone call away. We met every Saturday at the site with updates for the week (even on his wedding day!)" 

- Herbert and Diane M. Elmhurst, IL


"Prior to making the decision to build we had heard all sorts of horror stories. Neither of us knew what to expect and we appreciated your continuous updates throughout the building process. With your guidance, it turned out to be an exciting and rewarding time in our lives."

"Dave is very courteous, prompt and thoughtful. He pays great attention to detail and his follow up to questions and completion of tasks is outstanding. His recommendations to design are very helpful."

"My husband and I just completed the building of our dream home in Elmhurst. We had lived in the community for 7 years in a spec home built by another builder. While we were searching for a good match we were introduced to Dave Balogh through a mutual acquaintance. Dave had built their home the year prior, and we were able to walk through that home, as well as several of his properties to see his craftsmanship first hand. We were immediately impressed by the fact that he maintained great relationships with all his previous clients. Once we began the process, we were also impressed by Dave’s consistency throughout. He had a hand in every detail; he had endless patience with our questions, our requests, and our involvement. Overall, we were thrilled watching the great execution of our fully customized home. I would work again with Dave Balogh. He made the process enjoyable."

"We want to express our thanks for helping us through this journey from the initial design phase in early 2011, to recently following-up on punch list items. As you know this was our first experience building a custom home and we undertook a measured and deliberate approach to selecting a builder. We wanted to work with someone who had an outstanding portfolio of projects in Elmhurst, was solution oriented when dealing with the inevitable unexpected construction issues and was able to deliver a project on budget. Having gone through this process, we believe you delivered on each of our key selection criteria."
