Hello, let me introduce myself. I’m Steve Drake of Drake Homes. My company and I have had the great fortune for the past 30 years of helping over 2,500 local families in Decatur and all of IL meet their home building goals. And I’ve loved every single second of it!

“What pumps me up the most is watching my customers’ response when walking into their newly finished home”

As you can imagine I’ve experiences and seen it all: from huge smiles, tears of happiness, hard-to-contain excitement. Once, I had a customer start jumping up and down, fall to the new hardwood floor, start balling, stand up and give me a meaningful heartfelt hug.

That’s what it’s all about and I love my job! My business, Drake Homes, is known for creating the best crafted homes in all of Decatur, Forsyth, Mt. Zion, Central Illinois and perhaps Illinois in total… which we’ve proudly earned one home at a time. We’ve constructed at types and priced homes from $150,000 to well over 7 figures.

Please understand I’m not trying to blow my own horn here.

That’s not what I’m trying to do here. Nobody, including myself, likes a sales pitch, and I don’t want you to think I’m bragging about Drake Homes and we’re the only quality new home builder in Decatur, Illinois… It’s simply not the case and there are a handful of home builders that are of quality. And I’m sure that would turn you off anyway. My goal is to share with you a couple “qualifiers”—FACTS about my background and experience—reasons why YOU might be interested in taking what information I’ll be offering you here seriously.

luth1You see, over the years, I’ve seen everything you can imagine as it relates to this business. As a student of this industry, I’m always watching and learning from other home builders locally and nationally—the one thing that always amazes me is how vast scale of quality out there—from top notch craftsmanship to unbelievably inferior work.

And that leads me to one of the key reasons I wrote this guide: to educate future home builders like yourself with regard to what they need to know about the home building process and experience. After all this is one the biggest investments/purchases you’ll probably ever make. The good news is I’ve recorded excellent notes on my learning, and I’m ready to share them with you. What you’re going to read could make a huge difference between a highly successful home building project completed within your budget, within your timeline and of top craftsmanship versus one that is burdened with constant strain, costly oversights and less then desirable quality.

Here are the facts:

I live and breathe this business seven days a week. I have raving reviews for building the “cream of the crop” top crafted homes.
