Oasis Reviews


We wish to thank all the staff at Oasis from start to finish with the planning, setting, finishing, and service/warranty work on our new modular on Harsens Island. Your company is a business that strives to satisfy the customer. Our questions were always promptly answered and warranty issues have been honored and completed. Your customer service exceeded our expectations. We do wish to commend the hard working guys int he field who did all they physical labor. They are professional and treated our home with respect.

Several people stop and inquire about our modular and we tell them we bought it from Oasis. We don't hesitate to say how pleased we are with it and that they won't find another full-service modular home dealer in the area and pass on your business card. We enlighten them about the benefits of a modular home for the island which outweighs building a conventional on-site home.

Karen and I would like to thank you and your staff for making our retirement dream a reality. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't find something that makes us happy that we made this move, especially seeing the grand kids.

What I appreciated most from both of you was your attention to detail, both inside and out. You understood and made sure that our home met all of my wife's special needs. That has made such a difference in our daily living. We have also had people complement us on both the outside appearance and inside appointments of our home. That has not only given us a sense of pride, but both of you should be proud as well. I lot of the added touches were your ideas.

The one thing that has impressed me the most is your commitment to wanting us to be satisfied and happy with the final product. Like all new homes, there are always a few problems after completion. This is not the first home we built. When an issue came up, you took care of it. That gave us the sense of security that we needed. Thank you for that.

In closing, we wanted you to know that we are glad we went with Oasis Homes. We have told many people about you, and will continue to do so. If you are ever up this way with a client and want to show them the quality of your work, the door will always be open.

Kevin and Carl, thank you and your staff for making a dream come true.

Dear Design, Development, and Project Crew,

Thank you for my wonderful new home. It turned out to be more than I anticipated. Please use this as a letter of my recommendation to anyone considering using your services in the future.

To whom it may concern,

We have been working with New Oasis Homes, and Benchmark Building since early April of 2014, when we first stopped in to look at a model on their parking lot and collect some brochures on home designs they offer. The sales people we dealt with were polite and helpful, and that quality of customer service continued throughout our process. We were given the time and assistance we needed during our meetings to figure out our floor plan as we began creating our new home. In each step of the design process, the folks at Oasis were helpful and patient with us, explaining what changes could be made to the standard designs, and what cost range we would be looking at. We appreciated it when Oasis kept up frequent communication on our project progress as our design developed from an idea, to a CAD drawing and then a final plan.

The selection process was especially exciting as we customized our new home. Having the many flooring, cabinet, siding and other options right there to choose from made this part of the project go smoothly. We never felt rushed as we asked many questions and had every step explained to us. Each time we crossed a major step in the process, it was explained to us and as we dealt with a new representative specializing in a different aspect of our building project, they were introduced to us by the person we had become comfortable with.

An important point to make is that we had few, if any unexpected surprises. Things went along as they were planned and the people at Oasis and Benchmark did their best to make sure that we were happy with the process and progress. During the construction, they kept track of each step, coordinating the contractors as best they could to make sure that there were few times without smooth progress. We were usually notified when there would be a request for payment, so we knew when to expect it. The inspectors were contacted and coordinated with their progress, so we had little to do, except to make sure things were coming together the way we wanted. We appreciated being able to talk freely on a regular basis with the project manager about what had been accomplished, what the next steps were going to be and how long we could expect things to take. We always felt like our concerns were important and that every effort was being made to make sure we were happy with the progress.

Now as our new dream home becomes a reality, at the end of our project, I can honestly say that I would have no reservations in recommending Oasis and Benchmark to anyone who was considering building a new home. We have been very pleased with the quality of craftsmanship, and the personal guidance and attention we have received during the whole process. Though the whole team there at Oasis has been a pleasure to work with, we would like to especially thank Christine Bouford, Field Operations Manager who watched over us and cared for us through out so much of this project. She made sure that we were happy and that things keep moving for us. She took care of our every concern and though she had many other jobs to supervise during our construction, we never felt as though she was too busy to help us out with any of our concerns. Her communications with us were excellent and she really put so much more time and energy into our project than she had to. We are grateful for the role she played in making our home become a reality, and appreciate her personal attention throughout the process.

-- Daniel and Karen

We are very impressed and highly appreciative of all the timely and exceptional work done on our happy new home.

Kudos to each and every Oasis team member. This is excellence!

When I think of the purchase of a new home, only one thing comes to mind, Kevin Collins. I literally dreamed of my new home for a couple of years, then this spring I was ready. I found the property, started with a lender and the ball was rolling, I was excited, Kevin was of great assistance throughout the whole process! A week before my construction closing I began getting the runaround by my lender. At the last minute, Kevin had some great ideas, so I switched lending institutions and within a week, I closed my loan and the construction began, I was impressed with how smooth everything had went, ordering floor coverings, cabinets, siding and custom design work. As the builder Kevin completed my site development and worked with the crew to make my dream a reality.

Now here I just enjoyed my first Christmas in my new 2400 square foot home. I was kind of nervous in the beginning, but Kevin Collins made my dream a stress free reality. Again when I hear the words New Home Construction I think of Kevin Collins.

Thank you, Kevin for all your time and attention to my vision! I will recommend you to all I know.

Thanks so much for expediting the finish of our new cottage so that we had occupancy and could enjoy the holiday weekend in Lexington. Gary and I appreciate you adjusting construction schedules so that we could get the building finished. We are both extremely happy with the quality and professionalism exhibited by your company. We are happy that we chose Oasis Homes.

We are extremely pleased to have selected Oasis Homes for the "Cabin" we purchased. The way it is set up on the property gives us the experience of "Up North" without having to leave home.

Mr. Carl Hartman walked us through every step of the process including the changes that we wanted, which turned out perfect. The pricing, the set up, the delivery date, and the few minor details for service after delivery were handled by Carl and the Oasis Team in a very timely and professional manner and as such, made the whole experience from start to finish exactly what we hoped for "No Hassle".

Thanks to Carl and the Oasis Team for providing us with a quality Cabin we can enjoy for many years.

To Whom it May Concern:

After years of dreaming about building a new home, my wife and I were finally ready to make those dreams come true. We spent a considerable amount of time researching different builders and figuring out the difference between a modular home vs. a stick-built home. Once we talked with Oasis Homes, we were convinced we should build a modular home.

From sitting down with Kevin and discussing our floor plan needs and the potential design options for our home to deciding our kitchen cabinets to moving in, our entire process was guided by knowledgeable people dedicated to making our home dream come true. Like many people trying to build a new house, we were cautious of our budget. Throughout the entire process, the team at Oasis Homes was at times even more dedicated than we were about our budget. They would give us reasonable options within our price range to make our home beautiful yet reasonable.

As to be expected with such a major project, there were a few bumps along the way. The entire Oasis team was dedicated to solving each problem in a timely manner. We were comfortable with their decision making skills about our house due to their many years in the home-building business. After seeing all that goes on in the office and especially at the site, we were so glad we had Oasis Homes handle our project from start to finish. To have handled all the construction work would've been too difficult and complicated to juggle while working full-time and having a busy life. We were so thankful we let Oasis handle all the particulars during our building process.

Since we had such a wonderful experience building our dream home, we would recommend any of our family or friends to build with Oasis Homes.

For most of my life I dreamed of retiring to a lot on a bluff overlooking Lake Huron. I started the research process and decided on a modular home using Oasis Homes. The more I read about modular, the more I was convinced that it produced a superior to a stick-built home. I was particularly attracted to the fact that the house would be build in a climate controlled environment.

I started out with a sketch of what I wanted on the back of an envelope. The house needed to be long and narrow so as to fit on my lot and still give the neighbors a buffer between us. Carl Hartman took that. original drawing and, after several iterations, came up with the most perfect plan. No idea was too silly, no request too unreasonable, and no design too outlandish. The finished product exceeds what I had ever dreamed of.

Christine Bouford guided me through the selection process. I had never done anything like this before so her expertise was greatly appreciated. When I had specific ideas, she helped me to look at all of the options and select what was the best for my budget. I am thrilled with the outcome.

I traveled to All American Homes in Indiana to see my house while it was in the process of being built. I am glad that I had the opportunity to do that and to see some of the construction in progress. It was such an interesting process and to see the quality of the work while in the build phase made me very excited to see the finished project.

Despite some tough challenges because of the layout of the building site, the house was successfully set in place and I made my first visit on New Year's Day 2015. It was so exciting to see it in place! Project Manager Kelle Finn kept me updated and patiently dealt with my every question. Raney Miracle was a terrific cheerleader and navigator through the pile of permits.

Everyone who has visited has remarked on the design and quality of the house. It is the home I have always dreamed of and I know I will be proud to show it off for years to come.
