We want to build lasting relationships with our home buyers. From finding the perfect lot to long after the move-in date, we strive for open and complete communication, full support, and absolute professionalism. We love building awesome homes for awesome people, and hope that is plain to see throughout the building process and beyond. If you had an amazing experience with us, we would love to know. If your experience was less-than-amazing, we would love to know why and how we can improve. The best compliments you can give and our favorite feedback to receive are referrals and reviews. Tell your friends about us, let us know how we did, or both.

If you would like to give a testimonial or write a review, you have a few options! Here are a few ways to give us the feedback we appreciate and enjoy:

1. Give us a referral. Recommending us to people you care about is a signal to us that we're doing something right. 

2. Write us a review on our Facebook page or Yelp. Let everyone know how we're doing.

3. Send us your testimonial, favorite memory from the building process, or a few words on how you felt during the process.

4. Send us a message on Facebook. We're always here to listen!

5. Vote for us for Best of Omaha. Your support means more to us than you know!  


If you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact us on social media, via email, or at (402) 884-4854!

Over the years, The Home Company has been recognized many times as an industry leader by people and professionals across the state of Nebraska. Above them all, though, our company is incredibly proud to have been a Best of Omaha Home Builder winner three years in a row. We pride ourselves on working with our buyers to build their dream home, but winning accolades as coveted as the Best of Omaha is an affirmation of all the effort, energy, and care we give to each home and family. For Co-Owner Dave Vogtman, this award is the most meaningful because it is a "reflection of what the community thinks of us." From all of us here at The Home Company, thank you for your continued support!

An Energy Efficient Home Can Save You Money

If a home builder says they build energy efficient homes, they should have proof!

That's why The Home Company has partnered with American Energy Advisors for the past 4 years to "score" or "rate" all of our homes.

American Energy Advisors will rate quality of our insulation job, air leakage, duct leakage, leakage to outside all while considering specific factors of the home such as the window selection, mechanical equipment (A/C, furnace, etc), lighting choices and appliances that are installed in the home. They take all of this information, plus much more, and calculate a “score” or “rating” for the home. The lower the score, the better and more energy efficient the home is!
