We were living in an Orland Park townhome and with a baby on the way – one that would bring our growing family to six – space was only going to get tighter. We started looking at single-family homes, but found little fitting our needs and budget. We stopped at The Glens of Connemara on a Sunday near 5:00 p.m. and were shocked to find someone there – Frank – who welcomed us in. The model home had everything we wanted, but was beyond our budget. That’s when Frank asked us if we had considered building on our own lot, something he assured us could be more economical. Until that conversation, we thought a custom project would be way out of reach. Frank immediately used his industry contacts to help us find a lot in Orland Park. Then, it turned to the home plans. We loved the craftsman style, but also wanted an open concept. We must have had 10 revisions of the plan. The 5th Avenue team was accommodating and patient with every change and that just heightened our level of comfort and confidence. From beginning to end and months beyond the closing, we can’t say enough about the personal touch 5th Avenue gave to our home. We wanted a certain type of floor and Frank went out and found samples. We wanted espresso-colored cabinets and Frank tracked them down. He wanted us to be happy. When it came to design, Dina laid everything out for us. She helped us make confident decisions and validated those choices. The entire team made sure we got what we wanted. It didn’t matter our budget. Frank and Patrick were working with us and respecting our concerns and wishes. They were caring and calming every step of the way, immediately answering any questions we had and detailing where we were in the process and where we were headed next. In the end, 5th Avenue made our vision come true.
