Trademark Homes was great to work with. The service was excellent and they were easy to work with. We've built three new homes now and we've learned you want three things from a builder: 1. Quality Materials/Workmanship 2. Stays on Schedule. 3. Stays on Budget. Trademark delivered on all three of these things! We'd recommend them to our best friends. And we have!

Trademark Homes made our home building process a personal and enjoyable journey. From start to finish Erik and his team kept us up to date on the progress and any changes that were happening. Marin's help in picking out the "extra's" for the house made the finishing touches easy. What could of been a painstaking process filled with headaches and things forgotten was actually an easy and fun challenge that ended with getting the house we dreamed of! Thanks for everything!

Quality, timeliness, and attention to detail. That is what I got with Erik at Trademark Homes. I had a small addition, but was treated like a high-end customer.


Since this was our first time building, we had no idea how many decisions had to be made - down to the last detail. Erik and Marin were extremely helpful in every aspect of building. We got great guidance, and feel we made the right choice in each situation. Any time we had a question, they were quick to respond with a friendly answer. The result is a home we're extremely proud of. The quality is superb and their service is second-to-none. If we ever decide to build again, we'll definitely use Trademark Homes.

We had a great experience working with Trademark Homes. Erik was always available to answer any questions we had and kept us informed throughout the whole process. A year later, Erik is checking in with us, making sure everything is working properly. We can't wait for him to build our next home!

Heather and Tony

We were referred to Trademark Homes by someone in the area. Upon contacting Erik, he promptly met with us to determine the scope of our renovation project. He was very helpful in suggesting ideas and alternatives. We were impressed with his positive, energetic attitude as well as his patience with us. He helped educate us about construction issues, was very prompt in getting back with us if we had questions, and always made us feel like we were the priority! Once we decided, Erik ensured that the work began according to our timetable. He regularly visited the construction site to check on work being done and to ensure we were well informed of the progress. At the end, he was there to make sure all the details were addressed. The construction quality and beauty of the detail work exceeded our expectations! We would surely use Trademark Homes in the future and would highly recommend anyone to seek their services.

Trademark builds high quality and remarkable homes. People talk about our house... that's a good thing.

Chuck and Robin

When Trademark Homes was building our home, there were also homes being constructed by other contractors, on either side of our home. We closed on our home two days before the closing date that we agreed to with Trademark Homes. One of our neighbors didn't close on their home until six weeks after their closing date. The other neighbor's closing was over two months late. They had to rent an apartment for this time period. It was a big expense for both of them.

Jim and Rita

We had a preconceived notion that building our own home could be stressful, but Trademark Homes truly made our building experience easy and very enjoyable. The people at Trademark Homes are focused on customer service, with a hands on approach. They listened to our needs and were beside us every step of the way from layout design, to assisting us in choosing lights and paint. The knowledge and expertise of the people at Trademark Homes made us confident our house was built with the highest quality. I want to thank Trademark Homes for their dedication in making our building experience enjoyable and stress free.

Corey and Sara

I am enjoying my handsome twin home with one level living, so easy to live in. Have had many comments on the great home. Trademark Homes was very enjoyable to work with and so very helpful.

Joyce, Kathy, Linda and Brenda

We couldn't be happier with the service we received from Erik and his team at Trademark Homes. We had a pretty tight timeline... our baby was due in just 3 1/2 months. Erik thought he could get it done... and they did. We moved in 5 days before our baby came! Marin and Erik were always on top of calling us back, answering questions and using their experience and expertise to make our building experience a great one! We have recommended Trademark Homes to everyone we know!

Kelli and Cory

We were very comfortable with Trademark Homes throughout the entire building process. This is our first custom home and we love it.

Terry and Kelly

I absolutely LOVED my experience with the Trademark team! As scary as buying a house can already be, they made it a very non-stressful event... So much so, I was counting down every day until we were able to move in! Trademark will definitely play a part in the future as we decide to move into another new home.


The quality of the homes built by Trademark Homes is second to none. They absolutely do not cut any corners, and the result is a superb product. We asked them to build our home after three years of researching home builders in the Sioux Falls area. The uniqueness of their custom homes and the high quality craftsmanship were the details that first attracted us to them. We eventually asked them to build our home. We had numerous meetings with them to create and discuss the floor plan, and to get things perfected on paper so that the building process would go smoothly. Now that our home is completed, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Their work ethic is amazing. The home we live in is the exact home we imagined. This would not have been possible without their incredible patience and vision.

Quinn and Cari

A heartfelt thank you from our white house on the hill. We are proud to be among your quality built homes of distinction. Thank you for our beautiful and well-constructed home.

Lori and Ron

Thank you so much for building us such a wonderful home! We really feel like this isn't just a house, it really is a home. We feel so comfortable here and we get so many wonderful compliments from our family and friends. We really appreciate the attention to detail and time that you spent with us to make the building process so easy and worry free. The number one thing you have going for you is your customer service... it is top-notch! Whenever there was an issue you dealt with it calmly and professional. We really appreciated that and made it so easy to work with you. We look forward to being able to work with you in the future on expansion projects.

Suzie and Eric

Attention to detail and customer service are the two phrases that would sum up the building process we went through with Trademark Homes. My husband and I are extremely pleased with the quality products that went into our home with not one detail missed. Our building process began with our initial meeting with Erik to choose a floor plan, discuss price, budget and make changes to personalize our home. After meeting with Erik, we were told Marin would be our design coordinator, meaning she would set up ALL of our appointments for us and accompany us to the various businesses. Marin had a personal contact at every business specifically for us to choose the products that would go into our new home. By building homes in this way, Trademark takes all the stress out of building a new home! My huWe would recommend Trademark Homes to any of our friends and family looking to build. And when we are ready for that next house - Erik is the only one we trust.
