Michele and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for providing us with a wonderful new home.
Your thorough understanding of the entire home building process, kind demeanor, incredible availability, fantastic adaptability and use of quality subcontractors allowed us to closely partner with you to achieve our goal of a fantastic new home.
In this day of budget overruns and delayed openings, we were truly impressed with your on budget and on time delivery of our house, a true testament of a highly successful business person. Once again, many thanks for your tireless efforts to bring our family a quality, energy efficient and comfortable new home. Continued success in the future!

Lisa and I want you to know how much we appreciate the fact that we didnít have to worry about much which was helpful due to our busy work schedules. We had two houses built for us previously by a different builder and our experience was stressful to say the least but not this time around, everything went unbelievably smoothly.
We were very surprised at how quickly the house was built and although it was completed 60 days ahead of schedule the quality was nothing short of exceptional. We can see why youíre in the business of building houses, you are professional, organized, a terrific communicator and itís obvious you put great thought into the people you hire.
Thank you for building us such a beautiful house we are both very proud to call our home. We are truly delighted.

Mike Leaska built our home on Pease Farm Road in Ellington, CT 6 years ago. During the year he was our builder we found him to be honest, reasonable, and enjoyable to work with. He was always open to talk to us about any decision we needed to make and worked with us on a daily basis to coordinate the building process.
After the house was built, he continued to advise us as questions would arise about the house and was supportive in the follow-up process. He has also acted as an advisor to us as we needed recommendations for further work on the house.
In conclusion, I would advise anyone to use Mike Leaska if they are going to build. People told us building was a horrible experience to go through, but working with Mike, it was truly a pleasure to build a house.

We had the pleasure to work with Mike (Leaska Construction) building our home in 2003. We found it very easy to work with Mike. He always had good suggestions and was willing to make changes to customize our home.
We receive compliments all the time on our home, how beautiful it is and the quality of the construction.

I'm not usually a letter writer, however I needed to express my appreciation to you and your team for the assistance we received in building our new dream home.
You are aware that I was a client that had very high expectations when it comes to quality and flexibility during construction. Our extensive research into developers and the service behind those developers lead to our decision to work with your company. We have made the right choice.
It is not often that I get to say that the service a company provides exceeds my expectations. Your team has done just that. Through your efforts and commitment to customer satisfaction our project has been a success from day one.
Sure we had unforeseen problems and a "few" changes, this is not uncommon with a project of this scope, I know as this is our third new construction home in five years. The key is how fast issues are addressed and changes made to accommodate our ever changing idea of what our dream home would be, no matter how small or large. The key was that you were always available to assist us. That's service.
Thanks to you and your staff our new house was a home run!

We moved to Ellington Heights in December 2003. The experience we had with Mike building our home and living in the neighborhood has been great. It's a beautiful development.
In 2001, Jim and I began searching for our dream house. One Sunday afternoon, we were driving around looking at different developments and stumbled upon Ellington Heights and loved what we saw in progress!
We went back during business hours and first met Mike's father, and had a very pleasant conversation about the development and the family owned Leaska business. We then met Mike and discussed specifics about the development. After speaking with him a few different times about the details of the building process, we felt very comfortable placing our trust in Mike and Leaska Construction to build our home.
While our house was being built, Mike was fully engaged in the process and stayed on top of every detail to ensure all of our expectations were met. We were very impressed by the quality of workmanship completed and the professionalism displayed by all those associated with Leaska Construction.
We truly enjoyed the experience of working with Mike and would highly recommend Leaska Construction to anyone seeking to build a new home.

My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Mike six years ago as we were looking to buy a house and relocate to Connecticut. Aside from the great lot and diverse housing options he had to offer, Mike's professionalism and flexibility made working with Leaska Construction very easy.
We worked with Mike directly throughout the building process. He was very accommodating to our last minute requests and changes, and had a good understanding of how important buying and building a home can be. Six years later, we are very happy in our home and overall we are very pleased with the quality of workmanship.
Beyond the initial transaction and building of the home, equally important in our minds, was Mike's availability and willingness to respond to questions and issues well after our closing. Specifically, at one point we had an issue with a new gas dryer that was installed incorrectly upon delivery, leading to a gas leak. Not having a reliable local plumber or any connections to help us, we called Mike and he responded immediately. Similarly, just last winter (5 years after we moved in), I called Mike about some information on a drain that we had put in. He stopped by the next time he was in our neighborhood just to help out and give me some information on who I might contact.
I'm sure Mike doesn't even remember these incidents but they stuck with us and affirmed the fact that we made the right decision when choosing a builder. Mike stands behind his work and we certainly appreciate all his efforts with our home!

We have been so impressed with the quality of our home, that we would trust no one other than Michael Leaska to build our next home.

Besides the quality of construction, Mike genuinely cares about creating the best living space for you and goes the extra length to make sure you are completely satisfied with your choices. He recommends options when appropriate and accommodates you when you change your mind.
Mike exhibited not only patience but went the extra mile when we were trying to finance new construction. Although we did not build new construction as we had planned, we were absolutely sure that we wanted to own a Leaska home and bought into one of his developments. There is no question who we will work with when it comes time to build new.
Speaking as someone with exposure to many developers, I can safely say that the quality of construction, the final product, and the customer service of Leaska Construction is of the highest standards.
As a first time new homebuyer, we were plagued with several misconceptions about building our dream home. We were pleasantly surprised how seamless the process really was, especially working with Mike and Leaska Construction.
Mike and his team were able to address all of our questions and concerns and on all occasions went above and beyond our expectations. Never did we imagine that we would be moving in earlier than expected, which was due to Mike's precise scheduling and lining up of subcontractors months in advance.
The quality and craftsmanship of the work done by Leaska Construction was of the best we have seen in comparison to other builders out there. We highly recommend Mike and Leaska Construction for your future homebuilding project. Job well done!

Our building experience, being twice in the last five years, with Mike Leaska has been a pleasure. Mike's dedication and commitment to quality speak for themselves.
When we built the first time around all we heard were building horror stories from friends of ours that were also building. Ours was the complete opposite. We can remember going to the closing and thanking Mike for being so honest and loyal. There were no headaches at all.
We are now building our second home with Mike and once again it has been smooth and a wonderful experience. Mike offers wonderful suggestions and is always there to make the major decisions. We have found ourselves saying to Mike quite often - "do what you think is best." That is our level of trust in him and his skills.
Mike keeps in constant contact with us and makes us a part of every decision that needs to be made. We are more than pleased with the quality house that Mike provides. Mike has been very bending and willing to work with us to achieve everyone's goals. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike and all of his subs as well.
Thank you for your honesty and commitment.

Tom and I would like to thank you for building our house. So often one hears that the building of a house is a major headache, but we found exactly the opposite to be the case during the recent construction of our home.
The entire project, from the design phase to the landscaping, was a pleasure with Leaska Construction. We were impressed with your honesty, integrity and attention to detail. We think the team you have working for you, namely Al and Brian is top notch.
The subcontractors you have assembled were excellent to work with, offering advice and guiding us as we built our dream home. The pride you take in completing the project well ahead of the contract date is confirmed by the impressive scheduling that brought everyone together to get the job done.
We love our new home, Mike, thanks again.
