What our Clients Say

As an out-of-state client I want you to know how delighted I was to see for the first time the home you built for me in Placitas.  Although the entire project from ground breaking to stucco was completed in my absence, the product you provided me far exceeded my expectations.

We felt that Jim really listened to our preferences and acknowledged our budgets without making us feel like we had to push and spend more than we had.  Our house came in on budget and several weeks early.

Outstanding attention to detail.  We’ve seen other houses going up in our area, built by others, and many seem sloppy compared with Jim’s work.  Things like brick work and tile work were especially well attended to.   There’s an overall sturdiness to our home that seems better than  others.

We say out loud several times a week, “Man, what a great house!”  Really, we do, even after 2 years! Great solid adobe walls – good windows-high quality roof, big garage, etc.
Great Quality, good value, nice experience working with Jim.  Thanks Jim & Gail

This was a very professional & cordial experience. Jim always attentive to detail & possible improvements during construction.

We know we have a quality – built home because of extensive pre-planning & close cooperation during construction.  If new improvements/materials became available Jim was sure to share that information with us if we wished to use it.  

Asked if we would build another home with J.G. Madueña Homes we would answer yes, but we believe this will be our definitive home.  A friend of our asked us if we were still on speaking terms with the contractor at the conclusion.  We were shocked to hear the question because we come to consider the Madueñas  as extended family.  Our friend had not had a good experience with his builder.

I like very much your attention to detail and the finish work.  Great care was taken, it is obvious, to make sure everything fits and was done right.  In short, I salute your work.

Tip C.

I saw lots of new homes and none compared with a J.G. Madueña Home.  I had to have one of my own.  What a great experience!  I love my home, it is the most comfortable and beautiful home I have ever owned.

The quality of the materials & labor was very good.  I think Jim did an exceptional job of getting best for our money. I am very proud to tell folks it is a Madueña home.  Although it isn’t the biggest or most expensive home him has built, it still shows his originality & wonderful creativity.

We love to cook & entertain – Jim focused on our lifestyle when he designed our efficient kitchen & great room.  He was able to maximize the living space while staying within our budget.  Jim sat down with us and listened to what we wanted in a home.  He was able to translate our vision into a beautiful and efficient home.  I was amazed at the way he visualized exactly what we wanted.  Also, our home is so efficient in staying warm in the winter & cool in summer months that we rarely use AC or electric heat.

Susan E. and Tom F.

Jim’s strength compared to other builders is that he is “on site” all the time….

We were extremely pleased with the entire process.  You provided a lot of great suggestions during construction and we felt that you always had our best interests at heart.

The quality is great.  We have always felt fortunate to have had Jim build our house as when we compared to others we  look at; our’s always seems and feels superior.
