Satisfied Home OwnersLarkaun Homes has had the privilege of working with over 300 home owners, read below to see what a few of them have to say!
A hand shake and your word is the way people did business years ago. The companies that excelled at this, thrived and built integrity with satisfied customers. I feel Larkaun exemplifies this simple concept in today’s world by taking pride in their workmanship and desire to have completely satisfied customers. This is proven with the numerous awards such as 2018 Builder of the Year – Small Volume and Best Renovation under $74,999.00 in 2016. I have just completed my 2nd home renovation and I have nothing but great things to say. It is easy to get on their bandwagon. I wish everyone could experience this type of service. They were prompt, honest and communicated throughout the entire project. When a decision needed to be made, they never forced anything upon me and I did not feel any sales pressure. They presented me with all my options and gave me their suggested on which options was the best value for my money. If I had any concerns or issues, they were dealt quickly and fairly. If you are looking for a honest, stand by their word business relationship, I would recommend the group at Larkaun all day, every day.
Contrary to other builders we’ve heard about, Larkaun Homes doesn’t require micro-management. We took possession of our high quality Larkaun home just a little over a year ago. We are writing this review only at this time because we wanted to go through the builder’s warranty process first. These people really look after their customers. They give you a form to fill out 30 days prior to the new home warranty expiration. Every issue we had (all were minor) was addressed. From beginning to end, the sales process with sales manager Gerald Proteau and designer Karen was done with care and professionalism. Our Site Supervisor, Bruce, is devoted, communicates well and is extremely detail oriented. Owners Natalie Paetz and Corey Kaun, and Shauna, office supervisor, are on top of things and were all a pleasure to deal with as well. Larkaun Homes always hire the same trades who are meticulous and detailed oriented, some even work on weekends and holidays to meet deadlines. Kevin from Bruins Plumbing did an outstanding job. Thanks, Kevin, for finding the "rattle". This builder cares about the biggest investment you will ever make in your life. We should mention that Larkaun’s "standards" are far above those of other builders we looked at. Anyone should look forward to be part of the Larkaun Home family and we thank Larkaun for making our dream come true!

We are going on 2 years in our Larkaun custom built home and are just as happy as we were on day one!!!! Very minimal work/repairs needed after possession! Always accommodating and understanding. No BS!!! We would build again in a heartbeat with Larkaun Homes! Their quality is top notch, and we always felt like every thing that mattered to us throughout the build and after mattered to them just as much! Even when a room in the house wasn't turning out the way I had envisioned they promised to do whatever it took to help me fall in love with that room!!! ( which wasn't necessary because once completed it was perfect anyways!) Thanks to Cory, Natalie, Bruce and the rest of the team for making this such a positive experience for us!!!!

I bought my first Larkaun home 3 years ago after my divorce. My family of five, with 4 kids ranging in age from 10-15, needed an affordable but large living space and we were struggling to find the right fit for us....until we walked into their spec home in Vanier. We fell in love immediately with the unique layout, top notch finishing, location and the colour scheme. We were thankful to have an understanding sales team who recognized that our situation was unique and they raced to finish the basement so that my teenage son could have his own room and space in the basement (away from his 3 annoying sisters). Our project manager Jeff was beyond amazing and bent over backwards to immediately address any questions or requests we had... never a job too big, too small or inconvenient for his busy schedule. And I have to say that this astounding service extended well past the first year of ownership and exceeded any expectations I had (and I have been involved in the planning of 3 other new builds since becoming a homeowner). Cory and Gerald were beyond accommodating and I can 100% guarantee that I will most definitely build again with Larkaun Homes. They have set the bar extremely high and would recommend them to anyone looking to build a new home....you will NOT be disappointed!!

We shopped around a lot before deciding on a builder. Ultimately we felt that the Larkaun team were the best fit for us. They cared about the story behind the sale so we felt like we were important to them and would take good care our family. Which they did. They were very involved, and always listened to our concerns. Been in our house for 2 months and very happy with it. Thank you to Cory, Bruce, Gerald, Natalie, and the whole Larkaun team.

After meeting with several builders in Central Alberta, We chose Larkaun Homes to build our custom home. It was important for us to have the owner’s onsite regularly, flexible to our changes, very approachable, and most importantly price competitive. We are very pleased with the quality of work and detail that went into our home. Any questions or concerns, Cory and Natalie were extremely prompt to address. Their customer service is second to none. We would highly recommend Larkaun Homes to anyone as a custom home builder. We feel that our experience with Larkaun Homes was a success.

Larkaun gave us the true meaning of building VALUE for LIFE. We wanted to write a testimonial that could provide everyone with an understanding of our amazing experience with Larkaun. Our biggest challenge was being able to summarize all of our positive experiences into a paragraph. Building with the Larkaun Family of Cory, Natalie and Cam, was an extremely hands on and personalized process. There was a comment that Cory made that truly resonated with us; "I am here to manage your money, not spend it". This held true through the whole building process. What started as building a house has resulted in a beautiful, amazing and quality built HOME that we absolutely love. We began our Larkaun journey as clients and ended as great friends and part of the Larkaun Family. We can't thank the Team at Larkaun enough and we look forward to our next build!

We have been in the building process of our new home, on an acreage we purchased a few years ago, since April. From Cory's first visit to the acreage to discuss a possible building site to our move in date, which by the way was a month early, the service has been top notch. We initially met with Gerald and Cory to discuss our custom dream home. From that visit they brought us plans that were so close to what we had said we wanted, that we needed very few changes. They listened to us and made our vision come to life. Any questions or concerns that we raised during the building process where answered immediately. Bruce was so easy to work with as our site supervisor. Always putting our concerns to rest and even making the changes we wanted as the build progressed. We always felt that we were important and not just another client. Our experience with Larkaun, especially Gerald, Cory, Bruce and Shannon was fantastic and I would recommend them as anyone's home builder. Thanks for taking our vision and making it a reality. It truly is our dream home!
We decided to build a family cabin in the mountains with Larkaun Homes. As we soon learned, when you engage Larkaun to build for you, you can expect a personalized, custom tailored experience and you will deal only with owners, Cory and Natalie. We appreciated the attention to detail, high level of organization and vast experience that Larkaun brought to the project. The result of their efforts is our new mountain home completed on time, on budget and with exacting standards - Thanks Cory and Natalie!!
