Our Customers’ Testimonials
“During our time in the service, we purchased a number of new homes. Now, here in Arizona, special family needs required us to do so again. Mike Jones, and his team at Insight Homes, exceeded our expectations in every way. What’s more, his ability to meet our special circumstances at the design level, saved us a significant amount of money in renovations and gave us a far superior outcome. We are as happy years later as the day we moved in!”

“We searched state by state, on our RV, for a home with style, thoughtful design and quality and found not one until Insight Homes. While other builders offer bare bones as a base, Mike Jones offers upgraded cabinets, flooring, granite counter tops and much more as his standard home. To add whip cream to the cake, Ann Jones provides guidance in designing the home. Ann is pure magic in coordinating colors, rugs, tiles and sharing her “insight” in decorating. So considerate, thoughtful and generous with her time. I never expected to find a team like this.
When we met Mike, we instantly had total confidence in him. He is a man in possession of integrity, attention to details and a sincere intention to provide a beautiful home and satisfy the home buyer. He spent hours of his time going over specifics and responding to our questions and requests. You can see and feel the years of experience that both Mike and Ann incorporated into this home. There are many custom features that comprise the uniqueness of this home in the entrance, floor plan and overall flow of design. Ann and Mike listen, hear, and offer suggestions because they truly love what they do and care about how they do it. It has been a privilege to meet them and have them build not just a house but a “home”. Karen and Marilyn, Sales Associates for Insight, have been invaluable. Always available and supportive, they have answered our many questions with kindness and efficiency. For this Insight team, phrases for like “class act’ and “the real deal” come to mind. We offer these words of praise not only to thank Insight Homes but to inform others, in search of a new home, that you too can have a painless, pleasurable and most satisfying experience. We hit Lotto the day we walked into Insight Homes – “thrilled” is putting it mildly.”

“We love our new Insight Home. We needed to go through the building process while living away from Tucson and found the Insight staff so helpful in facilitating this for us. They were meticulous with details, helpful in guiding our decisions, patient when we inevitably made changes, and honest about all that was offered with the house. The quality of materials and choice of contractors were outstanding. The result has been that we have a better home for our retirement years than we could have imagined.”

“We would like to thank Mike and Ann Jones for building and designing our home. Mike did an excellent job of presenting cost effective material and building alternatives to our design. He was able to hire contractors to complete the details of Marc Soloway’s custom architecture. The structure and quality of our home are top notch.
We want to thank Ann for all her time and dedication to our home. She was there every step of the way, keeping us on track, and helping us coordinate textures, lighting, space, furniture and colors. We both really appreciate how she called out details and prevented the “OH Darn…, should have…., could have….., would have…. ” in our home. She did a wonderful job of finding us materials and keeping an eye on cost.
Mike and Ann were both always available and answered all of our questions promptly. With Mike’s alternatives and Ann’s eye for cost effective design details, we were able to come in UNDER budget and still have a beautiful custom built home.
If someone ever wants a reference, please have them call us, and they had better be ready for an earful . . . of praise! We are enjoying our new home – and really appreciate all the work that Marc, Mike and Ann did to make this the perfect home.”

When circumstances dictated that we quickly pack up all of our belongings and relocate to the Tucson area–we literally had no resources or referrals for who we should trust to build our new home. After much research, we met Ann and Mike and we immediately knew that they were the perfect fit for us. Hard-working, honest and full of integrity, both they and their team worked tirelessly to construct our gorgeous new home and the self-contained casita for our parents. The team at Insight Homes took great pride in the construction of our quality built home and they were always very patient, encouraging and available while walking us through the process.
All of the accolades and compliments we’ve received from friends and family remind us and reassure us that this journey was more than worth the wait–if “good things come to those who wait” –then, so too, do great things. We are so grateful to them for sharing their time and their talents to make our dreams come true. We are beyond blessed and appreciative!!!
