Sage Advice from Other Sources

To paraphrase an old proverb, if you do good things for people, they’ll do good things for you. And say nice things about you. Here are a few samples of what some of our homeowners and trade partners have said about working with us.


Sage Builders, LLC promised to build us a high-quality custom home on our lot at Eagle Crest and they really delivered!

When we sold our previous home in Eagle Crest, we had 23 days to move and no property or plan. After talking with other builders, we contacted Mark and Jennifer Huffman of Sage Builders, and they assured us that they could build our dream home in a time frame that was very surprising to us based on our past experiences. Within a few days, they gave us a Construction Proposal that was so complete, we were able to move forward immediately with our plan.

Throughout construction, Mark and Jennifer’s communication with us was excellent. Mark was on the job site daily seeing to every minute detail. Jennifer “dressed” our home by coordinating hundreds of items both inside and out. But most impressive was the respect and admiration we heard from all the subcontractors about them.

We could not be happier with our new home. It was delivered on time, within budget and of the quality promised. We highly recommend Sage Builders.

My wife and I decided to purchase a lot in Eaglecrest, on the recommendation of our realtor, we contacted Sage Builders to build our new home and from the start found working with Mark and Team Sage to be a very personable and pleasant experience. Lines of communication were always good and we could count on someone getting back to us either the same or next day.

As we had not moved to Central Oregon yet, the onsite pictures and cloud based scheduling program we could access from the internet provided us a constant status on how our home was progressing.

Mark promised he could get us into our new home within 90-120 days after starting construction, our home was started in July and we moved in by October, so they really delivered.

During the construction phase, we felt that not only were we customers of Sage, but with the attentiveness that Mark and Team Sage exhibited, we had become a part of the Sage Family.

Now that we are all moved in and “semi-settled,” we’d like to say how pleased we are with our new home and our experience with Sage Builders. Both Jennifer and Paul were extremely helpful and prompt in handling all of our concerns. The subcontractors were very responsive, always showed up when they said they would, and did all the work as promised. Refreshing, to say the least.

We are very impressed with Sage Builders and recommend them to our many friends and any other potential customers we meet. In an industry that sometimes falls short of professionalism, the Sage team should be commended for their high standards.

Last year, my husband and I chose to purchase a home at Eagle Ridge. We were fortunate to find Mark and Jennifer, who have built a number of homes in the area. We couldn’t be more pleased with their knowledge and willingness to be helpful in all aspects of the purchase. They listened carefully and responded quickly when we had questions and suggestions.

But of equal importance is the quality and functionality of the home itself. The kitchen is designed to be used, not just looked at. Lights and outlets are exactly where they should be. And the finish work is extraordinary.

We have purchased a number of homes over the years and this was far and away the best experience we’ve ever had.
