We raised four sons in a large five-bedroom home in Mokena that have since flown the nest. We had a big house to clean! We knew and liked the area but could not find what we were looking for in New Lenox and Mokena. We went a little further to Manhattan and saw this home on an oversize lot with pond views and it held our interest. We met with Bryan and Lynne and liked what we heard. Bryan sat down with us and allowed us to make changes we thought we might like such as enlarging the width of the home to accommodate a larger kitchen and we bumped out a three car garage because my husband likes to woodwork and needed the extra space. The building process was great. We brought a picture of a home we wanted to buy in Colorado and Bryan customized the facade of our new home to replicate it. We also liked the fact that Bryan lived locally and that we worked with a family company. He had a good handle on what we were looking for even making suggestions about things that we didn’t even think of. So overwhelming but we would do it all over again. Everything Distinctive said they would do they did. If anything wasn’t kosher with us, they changed it. We built a home before and the builder was reluctant to make changes. Distinctive was so willing to make us happy, was always present to walk us through our home under construction and answer any questions.
