“Our first meeting with Monarch set the tone of our journey to build our custom home. We were met with a sense of professionalism. The plans had already been reviewed and our discussion lead us to make up our minds that we were in good hands and were all going to work together to make our home exactly what we wanted. It became the home we had hoped for.
We would highly recommend Jennifer, Russ, and Kim. They are there for their clients and have high company standards.”

“Our new home is located in Privada adjacent to the Scottsdale Four Seasons Hotel. We have moved several times to various cities around the country but always purchased an existing property and remodeled. This was our first experience building a new home and to say we felt a bit uneasy and apprehensive is an understatement.
Like most, we were aware of all the derogatory home building stories like cost overruns, poor quality construction, endless upgrades, completion schedule changes, and a failure to honor contract commitments.
However our building experience with Monarch was both pleasant and exciting. Our home was completed within cost estimates, on time, and with no unpleasant surprises.
The reason for our high level of satisfaction is based on Monarch’s core operation process and management philosophy. They developed an open and effective communication style as we worked to select the features and colorization of our new home. The Monarch construction supervisor provided a 30 day advance construction schedule, was always available for questions, on-site daily and worked in a proactive manner to avoid construction and future home maintenance problems. Several “walk-through” meetings were scheduled to validate construction progress to plan and a formalized change order methodology was established to facilitate any modifications as construction progressed.
Monarch is an honorable, organized, professional, and well managed company and it was a pleasure to be one of their customers.”

“After visiting the beautiful community of Privada and seeing the exquisite design and craftsmanship of the model home, we decided to purchase a home in this North Scottsdale development. Monarch worked with us in every phase of the building process with countless opportunities for us to provide input, ask questions, or request modifications. As we were living in California at the time, Monarch contacted us regularly with updates on our home's progress. They met with us on our monthly trips to Privada to see and approve various stages of building. Though there were many details involved, going through the design selections was easy and understandable by Kim, the design specialist. Monarch made the building of our home an enjoyable and seamless experience where the final result was our complete satisfaction in our new residence.”

“Our home in McDowell Mountain Ranch was built in 1998 and needed a number of improvements, both to its mechanical systems and to make the house more comfortable and energy efficient. We talked to a number of builders but chose Monarch for three important reasons. First, when you work with Monarch, you are working with the owners of the company. To say that they were involved in the project would be an understatement. They were on the job site every day, making sure everything was proceeding on time and on budget. Second, the quality of their trades contractors was second to none. Each contractor performed their jobs extremely well and left the project clean and tidy when they were done.
Finally, we couldn't have done any of this without the assistance of Kim van Rensburg , the design specialist, who helped us choose fixtures, carpeting, tile, and all of the design elements that turned this house from 1998 Southwest to a beautiful contemporary home that will serve our needs for years to come
Thank you to Jennifer, Kim, Russ, and Jerry for a job very well done!”
