Thanks to the Nebraska Game and Parks Department, we got a bird's-eye view of the lake that will be completed next to our Anchor Pointe neighborhood by 2018. The outdoor recreation and fishing opportunities will be endless!

What's your favorite home from a movie? 

Most people would say "Wow, I don't know," and who could blame them? But it is no surprise that founders of a home building company would have an answer ready. Dave Vogtman's choice was the stunning colonial from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. 


It is not his favorite, as one would guess, due to its beautiful architecture or spacious floor plan, but rather because Dave loves "what [Clark Griswold] does to his house and everything that happens within it." The house itself is not what makes it his favorite; it is the home within. 

Nick Dolphens chose a home from a movie he hasn't even seen. It's THAT impressive. 


This cute 1940s bungalow court has been used in multiple movies, but most notably Swing Shift (starring Goldie Hawn). It reminds Nick of the Tiny Homes trending in the market today, and really appreciates that they seem to be "very well-designed, affordable homes." 


If you're absolutely in love with a movie home, send us a message on Facebook and tell us why! We would love to hear your answers.

What makes us the best of Omaha?

"The Home Company is the Best of Omaha, because of our systems, our inventory, and also our people."
"All the people that we have working at The Home Company are working toward the same common goal, and that is providing the best home for our homeowners that we can." 
"We really pride ourselves on putting the customer first. We take all the steps necessary to meet with you up front, make sure you're comfortable with our prices, with our selections."
"Our communication sets us apart from other builders. We meet as a whole team and discuss any questions or concerns from our buyers from that week, and then they get a call back."
"Through our systems and our software such as BuilderTrend, they can track the building process, they can see the price of their home throughout the entire build, and they can also make their selections right there on the system."
"We offer a ton of standard features that other builders would upgrade you for down the road."
"In working with Boyer Young Development, we have multiple homesites all over multiple areas all the way from Bennington to Bellevue and everywhere in between. That really allows our homebuyers to select the homesite of their dreams."
"Our subcontractors and superintendents are the highest-quality in our industry today."
"We do have a custom design studio, as well. We pay for an interior designer to meet with you to select all your finishes."
"We're always available for questions or concerns."
"We show up every day and do the best that we can. If something's not working, we get together, we brainstorm, and we figure out processes that will work better next time."
"We understand that a home buyer is making the biggest purchase decision of their life."
"People have discussed how we can make their homebuilding process less stressful, and that feels good."
"We really take all the pressure out of building a home, and really do it all up-front for you, so you don't have to worry about anything while we're building. You can just sit back and really relax and enjoy the whole process."
"It takes that stress away from home building."

That's what.

To rent or not to rent? We know, despite all your research, hours on Zillow scouring for your dream home, and knowledge of all the best neighborhoods in Omaha, that's the question on your mind. Being in the business of turning renters to buyers, there’s one thing Co-Founder Dave Vogtman thinks might come as a surprise when you finally move into your first home. It’s a shock most buyers will probably welcome, but certainly not expect- often times, their monthly payment as homeowners is nearly equivalent to what they paid as renters. You’re probably asking “How can that possibly be?” Well, skyrocketing rent prices paired with rapidly dropping interest rates are the cause. In 2010, CNN Money called Omaha a “rental town,” but it looks like, 7 years later, that is not quite the case. Now, you can sleep a little more soundly in your brand-new home.

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!

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!
