Greg Bain & Company - Flathead Valley Builder

If you are looking to build a new home in the Flathead Valley, especially a custom one, then you must call or visit Greg Bain & Company. They are located at 3577 Highway 93 North in Kalispell, Montana and can be reached at 406-752-2886. And here's why you need to contact them.

 

My husband and I purchased land in Kalispell several years ago. We needed to find a builder who would help our dream of a custom home come true. We interviewed several building contractors, arriving at each with our hand drawn house proposal and with a ton of questions. When we got to the Greg Bain & Company offices, we were greeted by Matt Bain. He listened, answered all our questions, came with us to check out our property, and left us feeling excited that our dream was possible.

 

Greg Bain & Company projectOnce we made the decision to use Greg Bain & Company, the process just kept getting better and better. We would recommend them to anyone who needs a home built because they were attentive, organized, flexible, responsive, great at what they do, and they had our backs. Here are a few specifics.

 

Flexibility: We had originally scheduled our home build to start in the Spring of 2019. So the team cleared the land and was ready to get started with the build. BUT we asked them to stop because of some delays with our for-sale home. We didn't give them the thumbs up to start building again until mid-August. They were able to switch gears, work on another project in the spring/summer and then start on our project in mid-August when we were ready. Phew.

 

Attentive: Matt listened to what we said about how we lived and what we wanted. This was important because he made several suggestions to improve our house plans. It was obvious he actually heard what we said. For example, we wound up with lower ceilings than we originally proposed because the higher ones would have made the home less cozy. We also ended up with huge windows that let us feel as though we are practically living outside (most of our windows are at least 6' tall). The shape of our home was changed a few times to reflect other excellent suggestions on the part of our builder. The end result was an amazing home that is perfect for us. 

 

Heating Unit: A few weeks before the house was going to be complete and ready to move in, our contractor found out a portion of the heating system had not been ordered by the HVAC company as committed. He was told it would be weeks before the unit would arrive. The HVAC contractor was then told that was simply not acceptable as we were moving into the home in a week or two. What could they do to fix their issue? A larger and better unit was delivered to the site within a few days. Delay averted.

 

Woodstove: We ordered a specific model of woodstove. Before it came, Matt found out the stoves were on sale, and the largest model was now the same price as what we paid for the smaller model. After asking us our feelings about the matter, he approached the store and arranged for us to get the bigger better model for the same price. And wow, that baby makes the house toasty!

 

Responsiveness/Timing: Not only did Matt respond very quickly to any texts, calls and emails we had about the home, he was totally on top of all the trades. Often, there would be multiple teams working on different parts of the home at the same time. There was rarely a work day where the house wasn't full of activity. In addition, he stopped by the construction site twice a day to make sure everything was happening as expected. And if he found anything that wasn't perfect, it was fixed very soon afterwards. Our project was contracted to complete by early February 2020. But because of Matt's attentiveness and skill, the home was done, and we moved in EARLY. In fact, we were in right before Christmas 2019.

 

We would absolutely give Greg, Matt, Lee and the entire team that got our home done a huge thumbs up. If you are considering building a home in the Flathead Valley, you MUST contact them!

Thank you Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - everything is going very well!

Beth and Richard Witt - Since I'm in a new area, I haven't done a lot of business yet with the company so can't give any insight to how easy (or not) the transaction and payment process is - although it sounds and looks simple. But I can say the company has a ton of free training that is easy to take and very valuable. There seems to be support for whatever an agent's questions/needs are. Many successful agents are willing to do training sessions on all sorts of topics. And there are multiple ways to earn income if an agent chooses to do so.  I'd be happy to talk to anyone who might want more info!

Kat, sounds like a builder that needs a five-star review.  Very nice they could stop and restart the build process.

Hi Kat Palmiotti - Matt and Greg Bain & Company went way above and beyond and I think you have friends for life! Plus, your endorsement for them will help buyers wanting to build in Kalispell or near-by communities too. As a result of your own experience, you are in a better position to do more for prospective buyers and sellers. Listening is something you do well too! I can testify to that, for sure!

I wish you all the best in your beautiful new home and your business too.

That's true, Brian England - they're definitely a "must call!"

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - that's exactly what they did! 

Joan Cox - We were worried that our delay would have turned into a much longer delay on the completion side. They did great.

Kat Palmiotti - If you ever need a testimonial, I'll be happy to oblige. Seeing just a slab in person in the middle of a forest to what I've seen from your photographs, I'd say it was like a miracle, a vision come to fruition, or a seedling into a Pine Tree in just a matter of weeks that I couldn't image! It turned out BEAUTIFUL!!!

I hope your day is great in every way!!!

A seedling into a Pine Tree! That's a very fitting description for a custom home in the woods of Montana.
