St James Plantation - 9/6/2022

"Although we are truly blessed to be able to build a custom home in beautiful St James, the challenges, especially in today's time, can be overwhelming and daunting to say the least. After several years of becoming acclimated to the area and searching for that perfect builder and floor plan fit we chose Barker and Canady. Zero regrets! Our experience throughout the process was guided and surprisingly fun! Barker and Canady's talented team worked together well to walk us through everything from floor plans, selections, considerations to the final product. In particular, we would like to think Ashley and Nick for sharing their amazing talents, diligence, and patience with us. Barker and Canady made building our dream home a pleasure"

It's a big undertaking but B&C knows how to do it all - we had all the help we needed for our home even though we lived 700 miles away.

St. James Plantation - 9/4/2018

"We are extremely proud of our new home and pleased with all aspects of the design and build by Barker and Canady Custom Homes. Prior to choosing B&C we researched numerous floor plans and met with other builders in St. James Plantation. We chose Barker and Canady because they have an excellent reputation and both Tom Canady and Jennifer Kelly gave the time to discuss all aspects of the process. We felt their floor plans and the custom options they offered gave us everything we were looking for and we knew after talking with them that they were the home builder for us. Throughout the process Rob Canady, our Project Manager, provided updates on the status of the build. Along the build process, there were a couple changes that were made that improved the overall design and added additional quality to our home. Rob provided us with options on these changes and honest recommendations based on the numerous years of experience of his company, quality contacts, and sub-contractors that B&C maintains. Furthermore, the whole Barker and Canady team including Bridget, was always available to talk with us when and if we had any questions. Overall, we highly recommend B&C to anyone interested in building your dream custom home!"

"We love our home! We are so happy we chose Barker and Canady to build our dream home, they made everything from the planning of meetings with the B&C team; Tom, Jennifer, Bridget, Ashley, Haley and especially Todd to the actual construction. The attention to detail in the house and the quick responses to our inquiries since we were building from New Jersey gave us peace of mind. We checked a number of builders but as soon as we met B&C team we had a good feeling and we are so glad we went with this wonderful team.

Our home was built in between two existing homes and when it was completed it looked like it had always been there. We have gotten such compliments on it. People throughout the Reserve and as far as Regency Crossing have told us our home has such "Curb Appeal". This home and the experience has turned out to be everything we wanted and asked for.

Barker and Canady and Todd Lewis were such a pleasure to work with. They did a great job, especially the last two weeks in getting our house done in time. There was a lot of effort trying to get us in before Christmas so we could spend time in our new home with our only son from Arizona. This meant so much to us, more than words can say. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this happen! Special "Kudos" to Todd and all the contractors for getting us into this beautiful home!"

St James Plantation- 11/15/16

"Barker and Canady likes to build things...let's start with TRUST. My wife and I never built a house from ground up, never mind from a long distance (MA). We figured with 35 years in business Barker and Canady would: have experienced both good and the bad times, which results in financial stability and loyal subs; have the experience on how to handle the challenges of building a new house; have a succession plan should the unforeseen happen with any principals.

Well we could not be happier and the building process could not have been easier. Nick Woehr, Project Manager made the process easy and painless and provided input when requested. Bridget, Office Manager kept us abreast of all overages so we knew where we stood financially at all times. We love our new home, we appreciated the process and want to say a huge THANK YOU to the Barker and Canady team for providing us such a beautiful home!"

"In working with Barker and Canady to build our "forever" home in 2014, we found individuals who took a personal interest in making sure we were comfortable and happy with the myriad of choices that needed to be made during the process. Although we were a little concerned about undertaking this project "long distance" from NJ, Rob and the entire Barker Canady team were a pleasure to work with and took extra time and effort to help us feel confident in our decision to work with them. Our new custom home is truly a reflection of what we had dreamed for our family's enjoyment and comfort, and the quality of construction is spot on!"

Yvonne Scheffer

St. James Plantation - 7/26/2016

"While I had reservations to watch the building process from afar, the Barker and Canady team has a wonderful process in place that was truly amazing. Everyone had their specific level of expertise from the sales part with Tom and Jennifer, Nick who was assigned as the project manager, Ashley was there to assist with deciding all the right selections, and Bridget and Phil to keep us straight back in the office. Nick kept me informed, sent many pictures of the progress, always answered emails and phone calls promptly, knew or would find out the answers to all my questions....in my book he is all about doing a quality, first class job!

At the first sales meeting I showed Tom and Jennifer a picture of a Tuscan door with the comment that I would like the open inviting Tuscan elevation and asked if they could build something of this nature. I also found a beautiful bathroom with a sunken tub. Their answer to those two criteria was a resounding "Yes". In the end, the house did not just meet the two big criteria but it exceeded all my expectations. Everyday when I walk through the house, I marvel at the attention to detail but also the craftsmanship that reflects the Barker and Canady Homes of Distinction!"

River Landing - 2/8/16

"Although Barker & Canady turned over the keys to our new home on January, 29, 2016, our relationship with them began 6 years earlier, Planning for our retirement eventually led us to River Landing where we attended several Builder Showcase events. We visited all the builders open houses, but found ourselves returning to the Barker and Canady offerings. Tom and Jennifer understood that we were "just looking" at the time, and never pressured us to commit to their services. Instead, in addition to detailing how they differed from other builders, they also put us in touch with occupants of newly completed, as well as more established Barker & Canady homes. These owners had beautiful homes and they uniformly had very high levels of satisfaction with their Barker and Canady experience. This was very important for us, especially given that the experience of building our previous home in northern Virginia was slightly "tainted" due to a less than responsive builder. Our experience with Barker and Canady has been the polar opposite. Our Project Manager, Todd was detail oriented and exceptionally communicative. His professionalism and customer care seems to be representative of all the Barker and Canady staff with whom we worked. They all worked well with us to deliver a superior product, on time. on budget and one with which we are truly satisfied."

St. James Plantation - 11/3/2015

"It is hard to write a review/quote that would cover everyone and everything. We were happy and comfortable from beginning to end. The first and best decision we made was asking Barker and Canady to build our house. We have been coming to St James for almost 20 years and have watched a lot of houses being built. We went to look at some houses while down on vacation ~there was no time frame in mind. We just though we would get some ideas. We fell in love with a Barker and Canady house. We met Jennifer ~she was so kind and knowledgeable. We left that day knowing we found our builders.

We were a little concerned about building a house in NC while living in NJ. Jennifer said it was something they were familiar with and was able to explain the process in such a clear and easy detail that we felt ready to go. Everything Jennifer explained and described came true.

We had our first construction meeting at the office with Tom Canady. Todd Lewis, Jennifer Kelly, and met Bridget DelMese too. What a great felling that everyone stays involved in the process from start to finish. Everything was broken down into simple steps. I can't repeat enough how we always felt like everyone was taking care of us and making the process fun and manageable. We were given the services of Ashley Levesque ~ What a great help. She knows her stuff and has the ability to see things from the smallest description and make everything work. She would point me in a direction after we spoke and just made our choices so easy and again...fun.

Todd Lewis is just outstanding. He built 2 different houses, side by side at the same time and they both came out beautiful! He had great ideas at every phase that made the house perfect. What a pleasure to work with. Do they have an Emmy or Oscar for Project Managers? He should get it- He always kept us in the loop and just made out experience so enjoyable.

The final product is beyond our dreams. The house is beautiful! We cant thank you enough for building us our magnificent home. We would be more than happy to talk to anyone that wants to know anything about building a house with Barker and Canady. No matter how much I write, it will never be enough to say how happy we are and how wonderful the people of Barker and Canady are."

When we first met Tom and Jennifer, Linda and I felt comfortable with choosing B&C to build our dream house. This plan started 17 years ago for us when we purchased the property in St James dreaming of building a retirement home. Barker and Canady made it all come true with the help of their unbelievable staff - Ashley helping us pick out everything for the house to Todd, Project Manager of the year who built two homes at the same time.

From the moment we met Jennifer and Tom, we felt assured that our home would be built by a team of professionals. The vendors we met with always gave us several choices regarding our budget. Ashley's expertise in design and her eye for color helped us create the coastal look we wanted. And Nick? Well we could not have asked for a better project manager.

Nick, our construction manager, guided us all the way and gave us great suggestions on design features and cost saving ideas. Tom Canady gave it his personal attention. The office personnel are superb, and the vendors were all top notch professionals. Nick immediately took care of the few minor things we saw during our final walk-through. We have received several complements about our home, including, "It's the most beautiful house in the neighborhood." We definitely chose the right builder."

"Barker and Canady Custom Homes is a first class professional organization.  Having a house built from long distance was thought to be a daunting task.  Nothing could have been further from the truth.  It was an exciting and problem free experience.  Not only do I have a beautiful new home but I have some wonderful new friends.

Every step of the process was explained and all expectations were completely fulfilled.  Everyone that was involved (office personnel and workers alike) were knowledgeable, made recommendations and were willing to help in anyway.  The home reflects their quality workmanship and in-depth knowledge in building first class home.

I can't say enough good things about Tom and Todd.  They are meticulous to detail and very conscientious to the homeowner's needs.  They are very personable and understanding.  I knew immediately after meeting them that I was in good hands.

Without any hesitation, I would recommend Barker and Canady to any perspective homebuyer."

"When we sat down to write evaluation, we thought of all the reviews we'd read before (and after) making our decision to use B&C as our builder.  Although we feel it's been said before, there are 5 points we think are worth reiterating:

  1. Everyone at B&C is a pleasure to work with; they make you feel like you're part of the "their" family. While we didn't build a "million-dollar" home, we were never treated differently.
  2. We felt confident using B&C even though we were 500 miles away from the building process.
  3. As promised, B&C built within the 6 month time-frame - no cost or time overruns.
  4. All contractors/Subs used did a top notch job, ensuring a smooth process.  Also, our home-site was clean throughout that time.
  5. Finally, and most importantly, was the level the level of trust we had in B&C.  They did what they said they would do and worked with even when we ran into delays selling our home in NJ.

People say building a custom home is scary and a stressful process, but not when you choose Barker and Canady to build your dream home!"

"We could not be happier with our new home!  Nick, Project Manager, is the best in every way!  We are so pleased with everything that there is really nothing we would change.  Everything is exactly what we expected or better.  We would and have recommended Barker and Canady to anyone.  Thank you very much!"
