|Bill and Marie ReapeWe had the privilege of working with Van Woody during the entire process of having a home built for us by John Maher Builders. Van was able to demonstrate the high quality that went into the different stages of construction. That made it an easy decision to choose John Maher as our builder. The walk through process was most informative and we appreciated all the time that Eddie Savage took to explain details of the home and what we should expect. We were impressed with Van’s intelligence, professionalism, integrity and attention to detail. In addition to our new beautiful home we have Van as a friend and a neighbor.
Thanks Van.” April, 2014
|Joe & Mikaela CribbsWe relocated to Tennessee a year ago and were exploring different neighborhoods to get an idea of where we would like to own a home. We stumbled upon Van Woody as he was showing one of John Maher’s homes. At the time we were using Zillow as a guide to find homes on the market and John Maher Builders had homes listed. Van educated us on how John Maher approaches building and the quality differences of their homes. After showing us several homes under construction, we were very interested in pursuing a home with Van. A few weeks after our first meeting, Van forwarded information about a home that recently became available. We scheduled a viewing, fell in love with the property, and put an offer in that day. Throughout the entire buying process, Van has been available and helpful in answering our questions. John Maher has gone above and beyond in meeting our expectations and helping us purchase our new home.
Thanks Van.” October 21, 2013
