I’ve been planning our “retirement home” for the past eight years. Once I finally retired (early 2013) I started my search for a custom home builder. I spoke to at least five builders before I choose Mark Kinsey of Kinsey Homes. Boy did I make the right decision. From start to finish, Mark was a pleasure to work with. I’m a person with “many” questions and no matter how many questions I asked Mark, he was always patient with me and always put my mind at ease. It was so exciting to see our house begin and Mark worked with us each step of the way. He listened to any concerns we had, accepted any changes we made, he even made suggestions of doing things we had not thought of and he built us a beautiful home. It’s everything we had hoped it would be and more. At the completion of construction, we submitted a punch list; I have to admit, it was a short list, and Mark was very quick to check off everything on our list. From beginning to end, this was an enjoyable experience; not the horror story I’d heard it would be. I would highly recommend Mark Kinsey of Kinsey Homes to anyone looking to build their “dream” home.

We hired Mark Kinsey and the Kinsey Company to build our first house in Mallard Hills (Lexington) back in 1997. As our family grew, we needed a bigger home and we didn’t hesitate to hire Kinsey again to build our 2nd home in Vista Springs (Lexington) in 2003. While we lived in our first home for 6 years and our 2nd home for almost exactly 10 years, we found both homes to be of the utmost quality. We couldn’t be happier with the superior craftsmanship and attention to detail the Kinsey Company provided. Not only did each home stand the test of time with no major issues, Kinsey Homes also backed up their product and took care of all of our “punch list” items quickly and thoroughly.
Our experience with the Kinsey Company led us to hire them a 3rd time in 2014 to build our dream home in Cherokee Shores (Lexington). We utilized one of Kinsey’s floor plans for our first home, but he customized our 2nd and 3rd homes with floor plans we brought to him. Each of our homes were built in less than 7 months and the entire process played out within the expectations that were set at the start of the building process. The Kinsey Company kept us fully informed as the process unfolded.
My husband and I would highly recommend the Kinsey Company. If you are looking for a builder that is reliable, will complete the process in a reasonable time-frame, and provides quality that will allow your home to stand the test of time, then you will want to consider Mark Kinsey and Kinsey Homes.

Mark is proactive in the building process. He does not wait for a problem to arise, if he is aware of a potential for a problem he will devise a plan to circumvent the situation before it develops. He is patient. He stands behind the quality of the home built for our family 100%. We are always proud to tell others Mark Kinsey built our home when a visitor asks the question and they always do. The quality is evident the moment you walk in the door and throughout the house. We looked at builders for two years, Mark made the cut out of a long list of potential builders. Our home is of exceptional quality.

We were thoroughly impressed and pleased with not only the superior quality of workmanship and service that Mark provided, but also his personal attention and dedication to providing a satisfying home-buying experience.

When we moved to South Carolina early in 2015, we decided we would go all out and build our dream home. We had an architect design a totally custom, unique home. The home is a hybrid timber frame central living space plus two wings for bed and baths.
We engaged Mark Kinsey to build this home and have no regrets. Mark made the experience a fun project. To be sure, he kept us involved and busy throughout, selecting colors, appliances, tile, fixtures, etc., but he was with us all the way with help selecting sources that had his confidence and following through by ensuring quality of products and installations.
With no reservations, we would recommend Mark Kinsey and Kinsey Homes and would not hesitate to hire him if we should ever decide to build again.
