I recently had the pleasure of working with Cates Building, and my experience was nothing short of excellent. From the very start, Lynn and Stone provided outstanding support and communication, ensuring every detail was addressed with utmost professionalism. Lynn's expertise and responsiveness made the entire process seamless, while Stone's hands-on approach and dedication to quality ensured that every aspect of the project met the highest standards. Their teamwork and commitment to customer satisfaction truly set them apart. I highly recommend Cates Building for anyone seeking a reliable and skilled team. Lynn and Stone’s exceptional service made my project a success.

Wonderful experience and outstanding home structure!

- The McGeachy Family | 2022

Professional, courteous and straight forward during a period when things were anything but during the pandemic. They kept us abreast and worked with us regarding requested changes in order to meet our goals for our new home. Our floor plan was simply amazing. The Bladen (F elevation) was beautifully done and meets all our expectations. We requested a number of changes during the building process and Cates was always receptive when possible.

- The Simmons Family | 2022

Project Manager was hands down the best! He worked around a very difficult appraiser to ensure we closed on time. I cannot say enough good things about his service.

- The Luke Family | 2022

I enjoyed working with Chris, the construction manager of my home. He was always available to answer questions and always went above and beyond.

- The Phillips Family | 2022

I would highly recommend Caviness and Cates to anyone. C&C built my first home about a month ago. Everything was absolutely on point. The project manager Rich is the greatest. He's very down to earth, answers any questions and provides easy to understand explanations. So far all of my concerns have been addressed in a timely manner, everyone has had positive attitudes and have been easy to work with.

- The Preston Family | 2022

We had our home start building in November of 2021. We were told it might be August of 2022 before we would get in the home. But they move faster than we thought and we moved in on June 26, 2022. We watched the house being built from the ground up and it was exciting but not as exciting as moving in. We love the home, and we have made a few small changes, but couldn't be happier with the house. Cates Building is great and were very nice to work with, they were patient and made us feel welcomed. I would recommend Cates to anyone who wanted to build their home from the ground up. My husband and I plan to live our lives in this beautiful home. Thanks Cates Building.

- The Bailey Family | 2022

Me and my wife has always admired the quality of Caviness and Cates when it came to their home. So whenever we had the opportunity to experience it for ourselves they didn't let us down. They walked us thru the entire building process from the foundation to day we closed. I would definitely recommend Cates for anyone wanting to experience the best quality on the market.

- The Ward Family | 2022

It was a great experience for my family and me. We were able to effectively communicate about any issues that were present, establish a way forward, and have those same issues solved in a timely manner. Loved the experience.

Our home buying experience was very smooth! Everyone that we came in contact with during this process was very knowledgeable and friendly!

While other builders we considered projected project completion in 5-7 months, Cates built our home in just over 3 months. We have never witnessed such a streamlined, systematic process. Being a highly organized person, I recognize the effort and coordination necessary to achieve such a short timeline. While at a bold pace, there was no sacrifice in quality; Thomas made sure there was as little downtime as possible by making every day a day of progress. Even when unexpectedly meeting him at the property, he could instantly report on the work taking place each day over the next week. Thus, we anxiously visited every weekend to see the transformations unfold.

It has been a pleasure to work with everyone at Cates. We are very grateful to have had Thomas Kilpatrick lead the building of our home. We will miss seeing him after the final walk­through. We are proud of our Cates Building, Inc. home., and we would be more than happy to share our experience with any prospective buyers. Thank you for our new home!

- Christine B. Scott | 2019

Amazing! I can’t say enough good things about project manager Alex. They were great and the house looks awesome!

- The Elkin Family | 2019

I came into this process not sure what to expect. Jaylene, Laurie, and Barbara have truly been a blessing and God sent them to me. I am so appreciative of the process and the beautiful home that I have purchased. I will forever be grateful for the great customer service and amazing guidance I received. This is the best experience I’ve had buying a home. Thank you!
