Milestone Homes is operated and staffed by the most professional, experienced, talented and trustworthy people in the business.  From the moment Eric, the owner, shook my hand and walked through my space, I knew I was done interviewing contractors.  He is kind and intelligent, extremely detailed oriented and has the highest sense of integrity.  My kids miss him being around every day, as well as one of Milestone's Supers, Guss.  Guss is the epitome of hard work, execution and thoughtfulness.  It was bittersweet for our family when everything was finished.

Milestone Homes remodeled multiple parts of our house and turned it into a forever home.  They coordinated everything and finished our remodel with precision and timeliness.  We remodeled our entire master bathroom, replaced countertops in our other three bathrooms, upgraded every door in the house, replaced carpet in every room, changed an extra bedroom into a den (which required a wall being knocked down), tiled the fireplace, added a real wood mantel, took out a built-in Murphy Bed and desk, added new light fixtures and repainted most of the interior walls.  It was a big remodel project and there is nobody else in the Tucson area who could have done a better job.  I feel very blessed to have had the chance to work with Milestone Homes!

We hired Eric and Milestone Homes when we decided to build our home in Tucson, and it was a great decision.  At the time we hired Milestone we were living on the east coast, but moved to Tucson before actual construction began.

Eric and his staff were incredibly thoughful and helpful in every step of the process.  He participated in meetings with the architect, being sure when needed to bring a builder's reality to the design process.  Eric estimated how long it would take to build our home, and his estimate was very accurate.  During the building period he kept us informed at every step of the process, and especially helped us during the few, but inevitable bumps in the process.  We always knew where we were in the process, from both a construction and financial viewpoint, which provided great peace of mind.

We love our home, and Milestone's help in the design, and most importantly the total attention to detail of all the Milestone employees, and their demands of the same of all the subcontractors in the construction process are what made the process so successful.

We recommend Eric and his staff at Milestone Homes unconditionally.  If for any reason we were ever to build again in Tucson we would contact Milestone immediately.

Milestone Homes works professionally as a team to deliver on time and to budget.  They exhibited professional planning, delivery and accountability on all aspects from planning, sourcing subcontractors, finding design consultation and execution.

We remodeled an existing home with unknown factors to be revealed during the construction process.  We worked together to find creative, practical solutions while the project unfolded.  By the way, this project was an overhaul of a 1975 "modern" home of 5700 square feet.  We tore up concrete floors, installing new sewer pipes as well as grey water systems;  every window in the home replaced including structural changes with steel beams and walls being re-arranged; 5 bathrooms, total kitchen, all new HVAC and oh yes, hardwood floors throughout the home.  Between sorting out the engineering, code issues (times have changed) and aesthetic changes, Milestone went with our desires and made them a reality.

After moving in, and all details have been signed off on, Eric Freedberg remains responsive and interested in our home as we work out any small bugs that may pop up.  I am completely satisfied and would recommend Milestone Homes to anyone considering remodeling or building their home.

We built our home in Tucson while living in Denver.  Milestone recommended architects and kept it going from there.  We tore down a house and Milestone was involved with EVERY aspect of the build (demolition through walk-through, including HOA foolishness).  After 19 years in business, Eric (and his supervisors) are extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of erecting a home.  All the subs were first rate as was our supervisor.  I honestly felt like I was their only customer - that's how much attention was given to our project.  It was a great experience.  We were about 45 days off our estimated completion date and this was not the fault of Milestone.  There were weather and backorder issues.  We were 2% over budget.  The differences that Eric made during our project are too numberous to mention here.  Suffice it to say, Milestone ALWAYS went above and beyond what is considered normal.  I will mention that a key architectural element was 1" off center and they redid the whole bit. I never woke up in the middle of the night stressing about the project. After interviews with other builders and from my year-long experience, I feel that Milestone is the best builder in Tucson.

My wife and I hired Milestone Homes to do a complete remodel of a home we purchased in a short sale.  Eric, his staff and subcontractors did a high quality professional job.

Our project was extended by almost a third in both time and money due to the discovery of "hidden" water drainage/damage issues.  During the entire project Eric communicated with us on a weekly, if not daily basis and helped us explore options to fit our budget.  Over the last 30+ years we have built two homes and remodeled three others.  Milestone has been by far the best contractor we've ever dealt with.

"Eric and the Milestone team listened closely to our objectives and assembled an experienced team that fit our major renovation project in Northeast Tucson perfectly. The value and results we achieved in partnership with Milestone are simply outstanding. This is a very experienced business that stuck to its promises and found solutions quickly and cost-effectively whenever challenges arose. We would highly recommend Milestone particularly for projects where thoughtful design as well as high quality workmanship are priorities. Their integrity and reliability are first rate."

- Jon Kasle

 

"We hired Milestone Homes to do a whole house remodel. Eric Freedberg and his staff did an excellent job taking care of all the minute details. They were very friendly, professional and efficient in getting each job completed. They hire quality workers who are held to their high standards. Our remodel went quickly with very little down time due to their attention to effective scheduling. We were extremely pleased with our experience including a detailed cost projection and budget, periodic financial updates, daily work updates, timely and productive meetings, superintendent on site, quality of workmanship, and professional advice. We can say, without a doubt, that Milestone Homes is one of the top remodel and home builders in Tucson. They truly put the customer first. They were willing to listen to our ideas and produce the dream home that we envisioned we wanted. We are extremely happy with our new home and would highly recommend this company without any reservations. Thank you Milestone Homes for going above and beyond our expectations!"

- Judy Dunn

 

"It is difficult to overstate the high esteem in which we hold Eric and his team at Milestone Homes. Their commitment to their clients is their first priority. As residents of Chicago, we built our home in Tucson from long distance. During the entire building process Eric was truly our advocate, pointing out issues that arose and advising on ways to make the house even better. We were in contact almost daily with emails and pictures showing the progress.

We had collected and stored many architectural elements that were to be incorporated into the home. These features personalized our home but, of course, required much more time and effort on the builder’s part. Their attitude was always, ‘We’ll make it happen.’

Their service after building was complete is equally excellent. Because our project manager, Dave Lunde, knows every inch of our home and how to fix almost anything, he continues to take care of our home when we are absent. Eric won our complete trust, confidence and friendship, and we can’t recommend him and his team highly enough."

- Margie and John Kerr

 

"From the first day we met with Milestone about our addition to the finishing touches and every step along the way, they did an outstanding job. Their attention to detail, concern for our needs, professionalism, and service after completion are superb. Their commitment to keeping the job moving along in a timely manner was great. We highly recommend Milestone Homes."

- Jim & Esther Hogan

 

"To say Thank You is just not enough for all you have done. You have exceeded our expectations by "miles". What can I say, you were always there when we had questions, problems, decisions to make, and so much helpful  input.

Eric, thank you so much for guiding us through this lengthy process. Your opinions were greatly respected, believe me. It was great knowing we could call you whenever, and always had a friendly & helpful feedback. Dave, our East Coast Buddy. You have done an awesome job supervising the ENTIRE construction of our home. Details, Details, that was a big plus with you. It was a great pleasure working with you. I know how picky we were at times & you made it all happen....Thank You. Thank you Mark for helping out when Dave was busy at his other sites. It seems you always knew what was going on at our house.

Just to tell you....If we ever were to build again, Milestone Homes would be the Builder of choice....Great Job!!!!!!!!!!!!"

- Lois & Mike Nudelman

 

"Our dream has always been to build a completely custom home. I was introduced to Milestone Homes and Eric Freedberg in 1996 when I purchased a home he was building. The plans were already laid out, but the neighborhood was just what I was looking for. Our first Milestone Home was built with quality craftsmanship, on-time, and on-budget. After awhile, I renewed my search for just the right piece of land where I could build my dream home. Being the picky person I am, that search lasted many years - some more active than others. When Eric recommended I quickly go look at a parcel near Sabino Canyon, I felt this would be "the one". We snapped up the lot it’s first day on the market - beating out three other bidders! The next two years were spent carefully planning and realizing our dream - a home where every last detail has the attention it deserves. Our new home reflects our style and captures our heart. Eric and his staff are absolutely the best!"

- Susan and Michael Legg

 

"First, and most important, Eric proved to be trustworthy and honest.  We built from Pennsylvania, only seeing construction once during the process.  They kept their word and were in close communication by phone and fax.  They even took videos for us.  They helped us in the design phase, changing window sizes and positions, ceiling heights, and general proportions, improving greatly on our original plans.  We were given a quality home for the agreed upon price. They completed our home on schedule and we were able to make moving plans well ahead of time.  We have been very pleased with our custom Milestone Home and have offered to show it to potential customers."

- Judy and Alan Munkittrick

As an Interior designer, I am looking for the same qualities in a general contractor as any discerning client should be.

Our company has had the privilege of working with Eric and his team at Milestone Homes on a number of luxury residences.  We have seen firsthand the attention they give to each and every project.  These are good people - committed to serving their community.  We have been especially grateful to work in close proximity with Dave and "Z" on a number of window motorization projects fusing high-end shading solutions and window coverings with automated design.  It is impossible to put a value on our relationship with Milestone. They are a strategic partner and they deliver extraordinary results.  If you are looking for a builder who can make your vision real and do it on time with meticulous detail and integrity - these guys are at the top of their game - which is pretty cool when you think about it.
