Russell and Helen Kiernan

We have been in our home 21 months and the staff has continued to check to see if there are things that need attention. When we need help, members of the Authentic team have responded in a timely and friendly manner. We have shared with others, on numerous occasions, how pleased we are that we chose Authentic Custom Homes to be our design and construction team.
