Sorenson Turns Nightmare into Dream
I want to share my experience with Sorenson Construction to help in your building decision. I started building a house in 2003 with another builder in Tilden’s Grove neighborhood. The initial builder ended up being a complete disaster.
Many issues with the first builder ranging from not building the house timely (18 months and not even framed), doing shoddy work and not making appropriate change orders or using common sense. Lawyers were involved and ultimately the initial builder was fired half-way through the project. There I was with a complete mess on my hands. No builder and a project not even half finished.
I approached Bob Sorenson to see if he could fix the first builders mistakes and complete my house. Bob and I walked the construction project and had several discussions about changes needed, time lines, warrantees and cost. Working with Bob and Jody was a complete pleasure. We worked out a contract to complete the job (very straight forward). Bob and Jody listened to what I would like to have done with the house and provided insight on structural design changes. Bob understood my concerns with the old builder and acknowledging his faith in his team and took full liability of home warranty.
We reached an agreement and moved forward with the RE-construction of our home. Sorenson construction was very accessible for questions during the building process which helped lower any anxiety I might come across. I noticed Bob on site often making sure the building was done correctly and if anything needed to be changed he would initiate, I did not have to point it out.
It’s coming up on a year in the new house and even though we closed, the Sorenson’s have been very good and timely with any punch list items. My experience building a house was horrible on the account of what the initial builder put us through. I can’t speak enough on how important it is to find a great architect and builder to make this process enjoyable. If I would have reached out to Sorenson Construction initially my building process would have been a completely different experience.
I can’t speak enough praises for Bob and Jody, they are good at what the do, they have a very good team and they care, combination hard to find. Feel confident choosing Sorenson construction to build your house from start to finish. In the industry of building and construction, they are known as one of the ‘good guys.

Dream Home Becomes our Reality
Our personal experience with Sorenson Construction while we were building our dream home was phenomenal. We actually had a wonderful experience through the entire process from beginning to end and beyond.
Bob & Jody worked with us on every detail of our house; they knew exactly what we were envisioning as our dream home and made sure that it became reality. Bob, Jody and the rest of their staff were on top of every little detail even those we were not aware of. They use only the best and it shows in the quality of our home.
We, our friends and family still marvel at how beautiful our home turned out. Bob and Jody’s thorough knowledge of building a house and giving it that house those special details that make it your own home is unmistakenly what makes Sorenson Construction so special and successful. We would work with them again in a heartbeat.

Bob & Jody are More than Builders, They're Like Family
We are nearing our 2 year anniversary of moving into our new home that Sorenson Construction built. One would think the questions would cease and the builder relationship would come to an end.
We are fortunate that Sorenson Construction is not only around to answer our continued questions, but that they are so willing to help. They have made us feel as though they are genuinely concerned that we are 110% satisfied. Every step of the way, they have been willing to guide and aide us in our quest for perfection. Bonds have been created within the Sorenson team that extend beyond the normal boundaries of a business relationship. They are family and work hard at maintaining a high level of satisfaction, not only for their clients, but also for themselves.
As various service providers come to our home, a common thread amongst ALL their comments is how much they enjoy working with the Sorenson Construction team. For us as new home builders, it is so comforting, or rather a relief, that we made the right choice and went with a company that is respected within the community.
While we were building our home, we knew Bob and Jody had integrity, but we truly didn’t understand the magnitude of value of that trait until we were completed with our home. The relationship has continued long after the hammering was done. We are so grateful to have had the Sorenson team be associated with our home. Thank you!!!

Sorenson Saved us Time, Money & Heartache
We want to thank you for undertaking our home renovation in 2010. We really appreciated your patience and efforts. Kathryn and I have been involved in over $3 billion of real estate development. In addition, we renovated the last three of our residences located in Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles. Given our real estate experience, we have a great respect for the Sorenson expertise and team efforts.
Clients may consider a General Contractor (GC) as a cost. We consider a GC a value. After 30 years in the real estate development business, we want to highlight an important point regarding the value of a GC. Many individuals see a GC as a necessary evil in the development equation and only focus on the construction contract, the GC fee and when the project will be completed. In essence, many people assume that the architect and engineer are never wrong and the GC just implements. We assure you that this philosophy will cost owners money and time, and they will probably be less than satisfied six months after they move in. They will look at various aspects of their project and keep saying “I wish we would have done this”. Just ask our neighbor.
We would give your team (it truly is a team effort) an “A” regarding our experience with your organization prior to construction, during construction and after we lived in our residence after construction. Sorenson Construction was excellent at maintaining a critical path of priorities, communicating, coordinating sub-contractors and providing numerous options for our consideration. Your goals were exactly the same as ours – ensure that the value of the renovation exceeds the cost.
Should you ever have a need to tour our house with prospective clients, you are always welcome. Please have any of your clients call with any questions. You should seriously consider a Sorenson Parade of Homes. With sufficient notice, we would bet most of your clients would be happy to help.
