“Dear Dave:

As you are aware my job is taking me back home to Chicago. I want to take this opportunity to tell you how pleased Melanie and I have been with our home over the past 3 and a half years. We initially purchased the home because we loved the looks and the layout of the home. The interior was well done and the woodworking was exceptional. The basement probably sold me. I loved the free flowing staircase down and the 10 foot ceilings were amazing.

The things you don’t know when you buy a new home are the most important aspects of the purchase decision. Knowing who built the home and the reputation of that builder are paramount in this process. I can assure you we made a great decision buying a DLR Home. The quality of materials you use are all top rate. The foundation system is a real benefit and lived up to all the claims you made relative to energy efficiency. Combined with the excellent insulation and high quality windows our heating and cooling bills were amazingly low for a house with over 5,000 square feet of living space. Even the garage never got below 60 degrees on the coldest winter days. The flooring, cabinetry, appliances were all end products and several years later appear as new.

Most importantly, you have been a pleasure to deal with. Every time we had a question or a problem you were there for us and made things right. Service after the sale always makes the difference and I would like to let your future customers know that Dave Rahman is a man of integrity and stands behind his work.

I am delighted we bought your home at 6674 Hensley Ct and I thank you for being a great guy to do business with. Malanie and I wish you and Angie continued success.”

“After meeting with several builders in the area, it became apparent that David Rahman possessed the qualities that were important to us. We brought a custom home design to him and David was willing to work with us on each detail, giving suggestions and advice. From beginning to end, he possessed the qualities of honesty and integrity. Communication was easy with him regarding the progress of the project and he was clear on our requirements to keep the schedule moving forward. David willingly arranged necessary appointments for us directly with suppliers. When arriving at their business, they were ready for us, which helped in our time management of all the details. Another quality that was important in our custom home was David’s time on the job site. David does not observe the process from a distance, but is hands-on during the total project. He was at the site everyday working along side the sub-contractors. He was always willing to meet with us at our convenience and answer any questions. David’s concern for our satisfaction began on day one and continued throughout the process. We developed a trust with David that continues today. We are thoroughly enjoying our one-of-a-kind, custom home. The entire process from beginning to end was a great experience and we would have no reservations in recommending Rahman Homes to others.”

“David Rahman and DLR Construction are the number one and only choice for prospective clients as far as we are concerned. Hi! We are Gary and Diane Meyer. We live in The Reserve. David built our home for us in 2005-2006. We have only the highest regard for him, his work ethic, his knowledge of the construction process and his ability to deliver a finished product on time, in budget and exceptionally well-built. Our friends commend the trim work when they enter the home almost every time. We love the cherry cabinets and granite in the home, the custom-built display cabinets in the dining room and living room, and the double row of “mood” lighting in the master bedroom.

David can build a house from the ground up by himself—less electric, plumbing and concrete work. There are few contractors able to do this. His knowledge of his subs’ jobs is outstanding for this reason. He custom designs homes. Although we had a plan when we approached him, he was able to keep the living room ceiling all one level by “tweaking” the design. The plan said it was not possible to have the porch where we wanted it and keep the living room ceiling from sloping because of the roof line. He made it possible to have it one level. He is a genius!

We added more crown molding, changed a color of paint as it was going on, and added electrical outlets to the porch as the construction was progressing. We were always met with a smile and “no problem” answer. David is easy to work with. Diane showed up on site every day. His only request was not to bother the subs and if we found a problem to tell him, not them. Always smiling, he has a winning personality.

Angie, his wife does a lot of the color and material choices for DLR if the customer has not chosen. She has a decorator’s touch. Although we did not work with her on our home, we appreciate her abilities.

If you are looking for a wooded, smaller subdivision where the neighbors know one another and get together for occasional potlucks or summer evening impromptu street talks, The Reserve is perfect for you. David Rahman is the developer and he should be your choice for your builder.”
