We recently build a home in East Windsor with Lakeland Homes.
We recently build a home in East Windsor with Lakeland Homes. It is a pleasure to have our dream home build by Lakeland Homes, took us a long journey and with lots of worries, stress and concerns to build a new home from all the words from everyone we know that ever build a new home, in which they made like it was nothing. Every discussion from the offer, plan to make all of the choices, 1st walk though, all the way to day it closed were very smooth. The house was perfect, beautiful and fantastic to every detail and it closed on time. Every issues was immediately taken care of. Communication from the first meeting to the end and on going has been fantastic with lightning speed reply and assistance. Andre, Mike McMahon, Mike Olar, Pat Tuer and the rest of the team has been really fantastic. We definitely recommend Lakeland Homes to anyone that wants to build a new home in Windsor-Kent.
Nancy & Franky
Settled in to our newly built home in Lakeshore.
Was very hesitant to build based on feedback we received about builders in general. We chose Lakeland and couldn’t be happier with how they treated us during whole process. Mike, Andre and the whole Lakeland staff went through each step with us. They clarified each question we had, and stood behind everything they said. The standard home package alone was absolutely stunning and any upgrades that we did were very reasonably priced. We are very picky and admit that sometimes we are difficult to deal with, however the site managers went out of their way to walk us through (even leaving other sites) to explain and answer any questions we had when we visited the construction site ( just had to make sure we had safety boots and a hard hat). The quality manager near completion made sure everything was in order from top to bottom finding and fixing small minute details that we didn’t even notice. He made sure we understood everything in the house prior to closing. Post close, we had 2 very small issues and used the hotline. A response was given the next day and a site manager came out to resolve the issues. It is obvious that these guys are honest and honorable people that stand behind what they say. I would not hesitate to use Lakeland again. Thanks again guys !!
I absolutely love working with Lakeland Homes!
Their quality, attention to small details and customer service are second to none! I know my clients will be taken care of when they work with Lakeland! From start to finish and beyond – they are there for the clients. If you are in the market for a new home, I would highly recommend meeting with them! You will not be disappointed.
Lakeland Homes exudes luxury but at an affordable price.
Timeless elegance for the everyday modern family. The owners and the staff of Lakeland are nothing but kind and always looking out for the customer. They make the build process easy and enjoyable!
Mike and his team are phenomenal!
This year has been an eventful one for myself and my wife. So many wonderful things have happened but the icing on our cake has been building with Lakeland Homes. Mike and his team are phenomenal! Their attention to detail, and our every concern is something that is missing from customer service today. They worked with us financially and made sure everything fit our timeline with zero delays. I strongly recommend them to anyone considering building for the first time.
“They stand behind their work”
We bought a Lakeland home a year and a half ago. It was an already built model, so we didn’t deal with the actual building process. Prior to this we had never heard of Lakeland Homes, but during the lead up to our move I was told by three separate people that we were lucky to buy a house by Lakeland and that “they stand behind their work”. Well I can now testify that this is indeed very true! We had a small but annoying issue arise with the house and Lakeland pulled out all the stops to make it right. They didn’t rest until our house was perfect and we were completely satisfied. We absolutely love our home (as do our friends and family), and couldn’t be more pleased with Lakeland Homes and their incredible team. A big thanks to Andre, Mike, Mike O, Terri, Nate, Patrick, Martin, Vince, and everyone else I missed. We truly appreciate everything you’ve done.
Shopping for a new retirement home in the Windsor area,
with a major move from Seattle in the works, we were referred to Lakeland Homes by Mike McMahon’s brother, Bob. What a wonderful experience ensued! Lakeland treated us with special care and attention. We are delighted with our new home. The quality and workmanship is obvious. Also, everyone we dealt with connected with Lakeland Homes was so kind, friendly and professional. What a delight it was to work with Mike and Andre and their exceptional team. The special treatment we received with such a major move in the works, was wonderful! Thank you, Mike and Andre.
We are delighted with our new home.
The quality and workmanship is obvious. Also, everyone we dealt with connected with Lakeland Homes was so kind, friendly and professional. What a delight to have worked with all of you. Thanks too for the special treatment we received. We deeply appreciate it.
Jim & Angie
Just want to say thanks for everything on the new house.
You certainly went above and beyond all our expectations on building our first home. I have heard horror stories about builders and hidden costs as well as short work, which we were scared of however you guys have been nothing but honest, responsive, and very reasonable. Your Christian values really overflow in the way you guys do business. We understand that we are sometimes picky and are difficult at times but you handled all our concerns and requests with the utmost professionalism and it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Joel and Mary Jane
It was a pleasure working with you and your whole staff.
Just wanted to thank you and everyone at the Lakeland Homes team personally Mike. Beautiful home that took care of us for 5 years. We have finally listed it on the market. It will truly be a great home for the next buyers also.
It was a pleasure working with you and your whole staff. We have and always will be an ambassador of your brand. God Bless. Thanks again for your continued efforts. You were there every step of the way in the build and continued to be there even after we took possession for years after. That kind of loyalty to the clients is priceless.
Want to thank your staff
Please convey our gratitude to Mike Olar and Matthew for fixing our long standing issue. Since I moved into my dream home, we received excellent customer services for any issue we had within a reasonable amount of time.
We would also want to thank your staff Nat, Vince, and Mardy for their professional work, advice and services during the building process.
Last but not least, we want to thank Mike and Andre. You guys were always there to answer our questions. We could call you anytime and we were never made to feel like we couldn’t. Both of you are very honest and kind people.
It was evident throughout that Lakeland really values having satisfied customers. We feel very fortunate to have worked with Lakeland in building the homes of our dreams and highly recommend building with Lakeland to anyone looking to build their dream home! If and when we build again we will choose Lakeland for sure!
Huaicheng (Adam) & Yihan
You and your team are great ambassadors for the local home building industry
You and your team work hard and focus on customer care. Your customers are your biggest advocates and I would suggest that no one can compete with your operation when it comes to taking care of customers…in particular the after care. Some our neighbors (not your customers) still comment on how they wish they had the after care that your customers experienced. You deserve all the success you have earned and a hats off for keeping the customer #1, even as your company has grown.
Cannot put into words what a great experience building our home was
Cannot put into words what a great experience building our home was with Lakeland. One thing is for sure my house if or when we build our next home there is no question what so ever it will be by the best builder in southern Ontario Lakeland homes.
Mike and his amazing team were so accommodating and always available
Anyone who says building a house is stressful has clearly never built with Lakeland Homes! Mike and his amazing team (Nate, Andre, Mike O and everyone else!) were so accommodating and always available …which is very important to a busy indecisive mama of 2! They have given my family a beautiful house that we are making a home! Highly HIGHLY recommend!
Monika & Glenn
Right from the first phone call
When we decided to move my wife and I thought building would be too much of a headache. Well, we then met the Lakeland team. Right from the first phone call this team was very easy to get along with and we knew this would be a great process. Their selection schedule was easy to follow and every one of their supplier and subcontractors where couteous and professional. Thanks to Mike, Andre and his team for allowing us to be apart of the building process. They actually wanted our input and feedback every step of the build. They would also offer suggestions and ideas which we incorporated into our design and now have our dream home. This team makes you feel like part of their family even after your build is complete. I would recommend Lakeland to anyone looking to build as their quality and customer service is above all.
Thanks, Brent, Mel, & the boys
Another 5 star review
We are so thankful and thrilled that we chose Lakeland Homes. Without a doubt, they have built our dream house! From the initial meeting with Andre to the construction with Mike it was evident that their utmost desire is to please their clients. We initially met with the architect, Jeff at Keen Studio and he listened and made all the changes we wanted to truly make it custom, to make it ours. W…e had many ideas for our house including an elegant wrought iron curved staircase. With Lakeland they were able to make this happen. They brought in Henry Thiessen at CS design who designed and fabricated the iron work and it is stunning. It is, in our opinion, a work of art. Also, we wanted an exact window design which we were told was very hard to find and sure enough Andre found them! With having built a house before, the difference is night and day. Mike and Andre were always there to answer our questions. We could call them anytime and we were never made to feel like we couldn’t. Mike and Andre are very honest and kind people. They are exceptional home builders and people as well. We’re extremely pleased with the process and and thrilled with the end result. We would recommend Lakeland Homes to anyone.

Testimony to good value with Lakeland Homes
When Lori and I finalized our new dream home concept with the Designer, we started meeting with several home builders in Windsor. During the quoting process we met w Lakeland Homes and toured several of their model designs. One such home we toured was recently completed in 2014 and was on the 12th hole of Seven Lakes GC …in LaSalle just five minutes from our home in South Windsor. The only way we were going to move from our very comfortable first home was if we could find a lot on a local golf course and build our dream home. After thorough review, we decided to buy this home at Seven Lakes GC and sell our Roseland GC dream lot which is five minutes away. This Lakeland home has 90% of what we have in our design concept and some other features which are even better than our design concept such as a soaring two story ceiling with large windows in the Great Room for example. The property also has a view that in some ways is even better than our vacant lot at Roseland. It was kind of ‘meant to be’. Being a detail oriented individual and having worked with my Father in his home construction business on weekends during my teens, I know home construction quality when I see it. With a growing Family and a demanding job in the auto industry I knew it would be much more difficult to build the home myself this time. This was a tough move after sixteen years of living in one home but it was well worth it. This Lakeland home is very roomy, comfortable, and absolutely stunning as it is themed towards our desire for Hampton style inside and out. Our Children have awesome bedrooms and we have a home of our dreams with lots of room for our frequent large gatherings with Family and Friends. Mike McMahon and his Team have struck the proper value equation to build quality homes, beautiful unique designs, at more competitive prices than most of the other builders in Windsor. Take it from me, a very picky individual for home construction quality, if you are in the market for a new home take a serious look at Lakeland Homes. They aim to please and their after purchase service is awesome. Mike Olar and his service team take care of everything promptly, with no question, no attitude, and an assuring smile. Andre Goulet, on the sales side of the business, was a real pleasure to work with also. We are Very Happy and all settled in waiting for Spring 2015 to finish the exterior landscaping!!! Thank-you Lakeland Homes.
Lori and Paolo Catenacci
Hi i wanted to say thank you very much for building us a beautiful home. It looks way better than we expected, everyone is enjoying this new place. You, your team and your trades are great people. All did a phenomenal job at reasonable prices. I appreciate everything you have done for us. I’m glade I choose you guys to build our beautiful home.
We have so many positive things to say about Lakeland Homes and the experience of building with them. We love our new home and have received so many compliments on the aesthetics and floor plan of it. We were pleased from the start knowing that we could customize a home to fit our family’s needs. However, our satisfaction goes well beyond the “look” of the house.
We are so grateful to the Lakeland team for their consideration of us. Having four young children and both of us working full-time, scheduling was often tricky. During the planning process, Andre was always willing to meet us at our “old” house once our children were asleep. When we reached the building stage, Mike would ensure that our house was open on Sundays (since it was easiest for us) so that we could see the week’s progress.
Both Andre and Mike made our schedule a priority, even when it seemed to be an inconvenience to their own family lives. We appreciate these gestures and it certainly made the whole process less stressful for us.
Since we are living in a new sub-division, other houses are still being built. As a result, we see many Lakeland employees and tradesmen as they are working on nearby homes. Everyone we encounter is friendly, whether they give a wave as they are driving by or they stop to ask how we are doing. Specifically, we would like to thank Fred for the help and assistance with various jobs around our house. Simply put, he is a pleasure to be around and a great guy.
When you talk to people who have built a house with other builders, you often hear complaints and negativity. We, on the other hand, enjoyed the experience because of Mike and his team. They kept us organized and gave us plenty of time to pick out materials. The contact people at the various stores were knowledgeable and gave advice as we made choices for our home. The few problems that did arise were addressed and solutions were reached. The Lakeland team is professional and personable. We are thrilled with the outcome of our house and would definitely recommend Lakeland Homes to others!
Danielle and Dave
What stands out to me most, is the fact that we have owned our home for just over 1 year now, and Lakeland Homes still cares if we are happy with our home. I called Mike one morning to discuss an issue that I noticed and they offered to have someone immediately come to the house, which I couldn’t accommodate in my work day, but still worked it in their busy day to have 2 people come at the end of their work day. They were polite and still explained how and why this happened and dispelled any concern I had for the future. My husband and I have not 1 regret for building our home with Lakeland Homes and will always recommend them on any day, anywhere, to any one!!
Integrity, trust, quality
-these are the first three words that come to mind when we think about Lakeland Homes. Many people are surprised to hear that we loved the process of building our home. How does Lakeland accomplish this? It is thanks to exceptional people: André, Mike M, Nate and Mike O., who worked with us throughout the entire process to bring to life the vision that we had for our home. The service that they provided exceeded our expectations. They were not only professional, knowledgeable, available and accommodating, they cared. We felt that they understood the importance of getting everything “just right”. Lakeland customized our home to fit our taste and lifestyle. Two years after having moved in, we love our home just as much as we did when it was only a vision and just as much as the first day that we took possession. Bravo and merci to the entire team at Lakeland Homes for making this possible!
Nicole and Charles
We bought our home from Lakeland and couldn’t be happier. When it came to our next house, we had been looking for the right builder in the Windsor/LaSalle area for quite a while. Every time we stepped into a Lakeland Home we knew they were exactly what we wanted from a product standpoint. Lakeland Homes’ attention to detail, fit and finish, style, and amenities fit our family’s tastes and lifestyle perfectly. As with any new home buying process, those qualities are only the beginning. What really matters and what mattered most to us was quality service. It’s all about the building experience, the relationship, and the trust between you and your builder. On top of great homes, customer experience and customer service is where Lakeland Homes excels beyond expectations. From our initial interactions with Andre, to our customization build with Mike McMahon and Nate, to follow-up with Mike Olar, everyone on the Lakeland Homes team was flexible, prompt, and professional. These qualities truly showcase the value of a Lakeland Home that you can’t find with any other builder in the area.

If I had to choose one word to describe Lakeland Homes it would be Exemplary with a capital E.
Ahhhh…Lakeland Homes; if I had to choose one word to describe Lakeland Homes it would be Exemplary with a capital E; they simply “got it right”. We had an awesome experience building a house for the first time!
I had just taken a new job in Windsor and we were trying to decide whether to build or buy. We met with Andre Goulet of Lakeland Homes and the decision was made. I told Andre that I was very busy and I would need them to look after “stuff”, I said “Andre build me a good house; I need it in 90 days; I have no idea what it entails, and I don’t have time to be at the site”. His answer was “we can deliver” and deliver they did!!
As soon as the decision was made they took over. I was working 10 and 12 hour days learning my new job and weekends were spend driving to Milton where my spouse and our three children were waiting for the house to be built.
The house was started and the excitement began. At this point Mike McMahon took over and I thought to myself; I hope this guy is as good as Andre; I was not disappointed. Mike sent a spreadsheet with everything I needed to do and the completion dates. I’ve heard that sometimes with builders it’s the customer calling the builder to get things done, but in my case it was Lakeland calling to remind me that my input was needed. I would called Andre or Mike every other week thinking I missed something and the reply was “no problem, it’s taken care of”. This was the case time and again; me calling thinking I missed a cut off and the answer every time was “don’t worry Sandra, it’s done”.
Mike McMahon guided and assisted us in any decisions that had to be made such as colors, countertop, plumbing fixtures, flooring, etc. The businesses and affiliates of Lakeland Homes were equally professional, courteous, and just plain fun.
This company; from their work crews, associates, affiliates, contractors and the pool guy as stated before “simple got it right” They made the entire experience a fun and exciting process. We have been in our home for almost a year now and Lakeland didn’t build us a good house; they built us a great house. I would recommend Lakeland Homes and their affiliates with the highest regard.By the way Andre thanks for choosing the windows, the colors matched exactly what we wanted.
Sandra Cole – Belle River,ON
We saw the high standards that Lakeland delivers within a reasonable price range for a custom home.
We purchased a beautiful property with a golf course view off of Seven Lakes Golf Course in LaSalle Ontario. We then began the process of searching for a custom home builder that could build the dream home that we envisioned for our family. We looked at many homes that were recently built in the local area. There was a common theme that many of the homes we liked were built by Lakeland Homes. We went through a model home and the minute we walked through the doors, we knew Lakeland Homes was the builder for us. We saw the high standards that Lakeland delivers within a reasonable price range for a custom home. We worked with Andre Goulet to design optimal spaces for our family and we achieved a design that is spacious, offered great functionality for our young family and an exterior that was unique and beautiful with a side entry garage. Lakeland designed and built a home that fit our personal needs and it enhanced the beautiful golf view on the property that we purchased.The construction of the home was a seamless process with Mike McMahon. He addressed any questions during the construction of the home with ease and was a pleasure to work with. The follow-up service that they provided was fantastic and when we needed anything Mike Olar and Mike McMahon was there instantly addressing it. We believe that we received a great value for the size, quality and style of home. Thank you to Lakeland Homes for going above and beyond to build us our dream home.
Glenn and JoAnne
The quality and beauty of building your own custom home at a affordable price was unbelievable
We moved into our Lakeland Home over 3 years ago. We are as happy with our home as the day we moved in. We moved from east of Toronto and were used to the cookie cutter homes where you pick package A, B or C when building a house. We couldn’t get over all the different choices we had when building our Lakeland home. The quality and beauty of building your own custom home at a affordable price was unbelievable and almost unheard of coming from East of Toronto. We built our house just the way we wanted and love it. Mike, Andre and the Lakeland team were outstanding and easy to work with during our build. Any ideas we had to make our house better for our family of 5 was no problem and easily obtained. Not only did the Lakeland Team build our dream home they also found a house for us to move into while our new home was being build. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Mike, Andre, Angie and the Lakeland team. For this my family is forever THANKFUL to them for making our 4 hour long distance move go smoothly. Thank you!!
Tara, Mark, Siobhan, Ethan and Aedan
We just moved into our new home built by Lakeland Homes and we couldn’t be happier with the entire design/build process. The quality of workmanship was top notch,and was only surpassed by their great customer service. We had built a house with another local builder 10 years ago, and there was no comparison between the two. Mike and his team did everything possible to make sure we were happy with the outcome. The follow up service after we moved in has also been great, as all minor fixes were swiftly corrected. I would highly recommend building with them! We now have our dream house come to a reality. Thanks Lakeland!!!!
My wife and I have built four new homes throughout our lifetime and have always enjoyed the experience. There is just something about building a new home. There is a lot of stress and unexpected problems in the process but you seem to be able to get through them with time. We did enjoy it but some people don’t. There are a lot of horror stories out there about building your own home. People do it to save money but in the end it cost them more.
Then you wonder if all your decisions were correct and if all building and safety standards were met? Of course you wonder what the finished product will look like. These questions and many more go through your mind on a daily basis when you build your own home. Then every little added expense that you expectantly run into is added to your bill.
When we first seen Lakeland Homes build sites we were always impressed with the curb appeal of their models. They were beautiful outside and stunningly beautiful inside. The inside of a Lakeland home speaks of elegance and quality. Interior design with stunning appointments make for an amazing home. . You have a sense of security and confidence with Lakeland because you know that you are getting a quality home that is designed and built right.
When we decided to buy a Lakeland Home we found the best part of our experience was dealing with the Lakeland team. Their staff were all professional and a joy to deal with. It was like you became a part of their family. They gave us their undivided attention and made sure that they understood our questions and concerns. We felt safe and confident that Lakeland Homes was on our side and that we made the right choice when we chose Lakeland Homes. Any minor repairs were quickly seen to and fixed properly. I can safely recommend them as a quality and competent builder that has been a pleasure to deal with.
Pastors Dave & Barb Pistagnesi
After carefully considering a number of options we settled on a Lakeland home from Mike Mcmahon and his team for our lot in LaSalle. Right from my family’s first contact, Mike was either available or making sure that someone on his team was there for us to answer all our questions. We used a custom home design that Lakeland accommodated no problem; even adding a number of excellent suggestions and tips along the way. They also easily incorporated our special requests, like additional soundproofing, an outdoor gas fireplace, and finished basement. Mike and his team approached everything with a very can-do attitude; we always felt like they were trying to do what we wanted – not what was easiest or what they wanted. I have nothing but good things to say about our first home building experience – honesty, quality work, and great value! I wouldn’t (and don’t) hesitate to recommend Lakeland Homes to others any time I’m asked.
Michael Wills – LaSalle
From day one it was truly a pleasure building with you guys.
Your professionalism, insight, guidance, follow-up were second to none. You were up-front with us, took our input on the design and offered your expert advice. In the end, the finished product (our house) was something we were very proud of. You accommodated our requested changes and because of your experience, creative ideas these turned out better than imagined. All the best in your future building projects.
With many years working in the new home building industry, I can confidently state, Lakeland Homes is one excellent home builder.
Service is exceptional and at the end of the day, thats what really counts. This is our 3rd new home purchase and by far the best in comparison. Lakeland Homes definitely builds to impress.
Michelle and Alex – Lakeshore, ON
The Lakeland Team is currently doing an amazing job helping my husband and I build our first home.
With their patience, expertise, and keen attention to detail this house is well on it’s way to being the house of our dreams!!! Thanks Mike. You’re the best!!!
Just moved into our new home and can’t be happier!
Everything is perfect. Mike and his team (Mike, Nate and Fred and all his trades) have continued to impress us with their attention to detail and customer service. No text or request has gone unanswered. Wishing Lakeland many more years and homes of success! Thank you so much!
Can’t say it enough!!! Mike, Andre and team have made this process smooth and seamless….beyond professional and certainly raising the bar..We can’t wait to move in!
Lakeland homes are like family, building with Integrity, Quality and Commitment.
By chance we drove by a lot owned by lakeland homes and gave them a call. It started us on a journey to one of the best decisions we have ever made. Their quote came in and it was right on target. I went to pick out my my flooring and tile choices and got a instant call from mike saying that I had exceeded my allowance for the flooring and tile. I had a long conversation with Mike telling him that I was going over my initial budget and was comfortable doing that. It is so refreshing to have someone try and save YOU money. Not only are we living in our dream home but Mike and Andre are now great friends of ours. People are always surprised when I say that but its 100% true! I felt like I was having my family build my home for me and Mike was like a brother always watching out for us. We did everything on a hand shake and he honours that agreement every time. In todays world that kind of honesty and desire to be fair and forthright doesn’t come along very often. It is obvious that Mike and Andre take pride in their work and genuinely enjoy building homes for their many satisfied clients.
I have built many homes over time and have never had the experience with a builder or crew that I have had with Lakeland homes. Lakeland is truly committed to building you a quality home. They believe in honesty and integrity above all else. I also know that they are committed to their customers one hundred percent. I can’t recommend them enough. I tell everyone who is even thinking of building a home to choose Lakeland. If you are thinking of building a home they are the absolute best in the city hands down. I am happy to talk to anyone personally and tell them how fantastic they really are. In the end we have a brand new home worth over a million dollars and I would never have been able to do that without Lakeland homes.
Aimee and Shawn
My wife and I had the pleasure building with Lakeland homes in 2012
We had an excellent experience with them, their entire team was very professional, accommodating and patient. We were impressed with their attention to detail and their willingness to work with us and our budget. As with any build we experienced a few minor issues which they resolved quickly and followed up to make sure we were happy with the work.
Adam and Linda – Lakeshore, ON
Choosing a builder for your new home can be a very difficult decision, and Lakeland Homes understands this.
Their commitment to us was demonstrated far before the execution of a contract, through the many weekends they spent showing us their houses, discussing various options and answering our questions at all times day and night.
Process driven, the Lakeland team used innovative procedures to hold everyone accountable ensuring that our project was delivered on time, within budget and exceeded our quality expectations.
The true Lakeland difference can be noticed now that the project is complete, the trades have gone home and we’ve moved in. Today their team is still as committed and responsive to our needs and questions as the day we signed on with them.
If you are looking for a company that can provide a positive, predictable outcome and a journey you are sure to enjoy than look no further than Lakeland Homes, we’re glad we did!
David and Melissa – Lasalle, ON
Our introduction to Lakeland Homes was by chance; we attended an open house in LaSalle and met Andre Goulet, co-owner of Lakeland Homes. During our tour we immediately noticed the quality of work on their model home and we were convinced this was the builder for us.
From the first meeting with Andre and throughout our entire process from the changes to our design and layout to the accommodation of our special requests that made our new home unique, there was a commitment from Lakeland to make our dream home into a reality.
As a buyer of a custom home there is always apprehension, but the professionalism displayed by the Lakeland team made us at ease and comfortable even when issues arose. We felt taken care of!
During our last meeting with Mike McMahon and Mike Olar we knew we had made a good decision.
Our friends and family compliment us on the finished product and as a bonus we now have a new friendship with the Lakeland Homes team.
Lina & Tom Williams
From the moment we walked through the Lakeland model home we were sold.
The house was beautiful and we loved the higher end finishes and the floor plan and felt that it was a great value for the money. The decision to build was made even easier after sitting down with Mike and Andre to discuss a plan. True to his promise during that very first meeting we received Mike’s full attention and guidance throughout the entire project. As you can imagine, seeing this kind of project through from beginning to end can be overwhelming and stressful with so many decisions to be made and deadlines to be met. This was made to run very smoothly because we were given an organized plan with dates and contact names to help keep us on schedule as we chose the many finishes for our home from carpet to cabinets to paint colour and so on. Even the various vendors and trades that we worked with through Lakeland were professional and helpful. By far the most impressive thing for us was the quality of service we received from Mike himself. Whenever we had a question or concern, if there was a problem or a glitch as the build was taking place, if we sent a text or called Mike we were answered immediately and action was taken swiftly to ensure we were satisfied. It was this commitment and quality of service, not only throughout the build, but even now, that has made this process enjoyable and easy. Our home is absolutely beautiful and we love how everything turned out. We get compliments from everyone who walks through it. If we should ever decide to build again it would be a pleasure to work with Lakeland again…we wouldn’t choose anyone else.
Stew and Donna
It has been said that purchasing a new home will be among one of the most important decisions in ones life.
When having a new home built for you the need for trust and confidence in your builder and his trades is essential. As a Project Executive for one of the largest commercial contractors in Canada and a builder myself for the past 20 years, I understand this all to well. My wife and I have shared a wonderful experience working with Lakeland Homes and their second to none team of tradesmen over this past year building our new home in Lakeshore Township. It is my personal and professional opinion that positive relationships are what make projects successful in the end for all parties. Mike, Andre and their trades have successfully achieved this goal. The quality, service and price certainty has been delivered to us in our homes planning and successful completion.
Our journey started with Mike and Andre reviewing the plans for our home, then together developed the plan further to include increased living space within the home inclusive of the selection of finishes and specific design features. At each step of the process we found the Lakeland team were very respectful and attentive to our specific needs, suggestions, and inquiries extending their support and experience to assist us in finalizing decisions and expectations of the finished product. During the various stages of the building process, we were encouraged to work with the trades where we were witness to an exceptional level of quality workmanship, dedication, and respect for our vision from all.
In the end we moved into our home on time and on budget! From start to finish we have been very impressed with the continued attention and dedication to total customer satisfaction of Lakeland homes. It is always a pleasure when you can share in the pride of recommending good workmanship, trust and honesty of those that have done something for you that is a major part of your life’s decisions. Both Ann and I find this easy to convey about Mike, his team and wonderful trades! Thank you for building our dream home.
Paul and Anne – Lakeshore, ON
Lakeland Homes left a lasting impression on us when building our dream home.
We can truly say they are a custom home builder that upholds their values and cares about their clients. In our opinion, they are distinguished by the characteristics of Trust, Commitment and Quality.

Lakeland Homes established an excellent rapport with us from the onset, managed the project professionally and respected timelines which created a pleasant and less stressful experience. We can say with confidence that they are a trustworthy custom home builder that will make your vision a reality.
– Lakeland Homes was committed to us throughout the entire build and long after closing. They had constant communication with us and had key staff dedicated at each transition point which made for a seamless process. You can expect to customize plans with Andre at time of sales, to finesse details during construction directly with Mike the builder, to have direct access to the on-site foreman Nathan and support from the service manager Mike to follow through with any issues after closing. Lakeland Homes provided outstanding customer service whereby every team member was accessible at any time, responsive to any concern and saw it through to resolution.
– Everyone who visits our home is astonished by the amount of detail. Our custom ranch is fully finished offering us 5000 sq. ft. of elegance. Guests are in awe of every room! There are numerous finishing touches throughout our home such as intricate ceilings, doorways and windows accented with transoms, custom trim and so on. The quality of our home is attributed to the excellent craftsmanship of all the trades working for Lakeland Homes. We are fortunate that Lakeland Homes was an option when we chose a builder. Out of every custom home builder in Windsor-Essex County, Lakeland Homes was the builder who offered us luxury living at an affordable price allowing us to make our dream a reality.
We wish Lakeland Homes continued success!

Building a home was a big decision for us so choosing a builder who understood the needs and wants of our family became a priority.
We are so grateful to have been introduced to Lakeland Homes. From the initial meeting to discuss the design of home to the actual build process and after closing service, Lakeland never disappointed.
We were involved throughout the entire construction process and were very impressed with the ease of selecting all the interior and exterior components to suit our home. Lakeland was well organized, informative, and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. The most important factor of all is that we love our home and know it was built by a reputable company that stands behind their work.
The amount of compliments we have received on our home has been tremendous. People love our home as much as we do. Thanks for the great building experience!

You will never forget the feeling the day you walk into your new home for the first time!
Those memories last for an eternity. For the last few months after taking possession of our home, I walk into my home everyday feeling that same feeling. I can’t thank the team at Lakeland Homes enough for this stunning home they built my family and I. I approached Andre Goulet and Mike McMahon with a custom design concept. The final outcome was far beyond my expectations. Everyday I receive compliments on how beautiful, well finished and executed the layout of the home is. Lakeland Homes held our hand throughout the whole process and made sure we were 100% completely satisfied in every aspect of our new home build. Lakeland Homes is no longer just a home builder for us, but friends that we can trust.
Thank you Lakeland Homes
Our experience with Lakeland was a very positive one from the moment Andre and Angie meet us and showed us various lots and worked at accommodating our needs and helped us work within our budget, both were very warm, friendly and professional as well as caring in their presentation to us. Throughout the build Mike was very helpful and fair with changes we made and extras we added. Mike oversaw the entire build and everything was done with excellence and never lacked the personal touch. Lakeland closed on time and after moving in we had the normal minor problems as with any new home, but Lakeland quickly responded and fixed every detail to our highest satisfaction. We are very happy with our new home and the experience with Lakeland team and we recommend any one looking to build a new home to consider Lakeland homes.

What struck us immediately about a Lakeland home is the quality finish the homes have and the quality materials used for the price.
We started the search for our home builder by looking around at different styles of homes and then gradually going to open houses and comparing between the different companies. There are so many companies offering different products, it can be over whelming trying to decide what is best for you. What struck us immediately about a Lakeland home is the quality finish the homes have and the quality materials used for the price. The unique and attractive design of their homes combined with the expert finish and attention to detail was what instantly brought Lakeland Homes to the top of the list for us. We were looking for that home that suited our design tastes but also had the “WOW” factor when you walked in. In the beginning we visited the open houses and met with Andre on numerous occasions. During those visits we discussed design elements that were important to us and how we might incorporate them into one of their existing designs and I can’t stress enough how easy and flexible this process was, they truly are a custom home builder. Andre was more than accommodating with each request we made, detailing out how they would go about making the change and what that cost would be. Once we decided on a direction we moved forward into an agreement and began the build process of our home. Now at this point all of the horror stories you hear from other people who have built homes starts to creep into your mind…Did I make the right choice? Are we going to regret going with this company? Are we going to experience the same issues? There are a million questions you begin to ask yourself. At this stage I can honestly say I was optimistic but still proceeding with caution, well it didn’t take long for my cautious optimism to be replaced with a feeling of comfort and trust. From the very onset of the build process when we transitioned from dealing with Andre to working with Mike and his team (Nate and Mike O.) we felt involved, informed and appreciated as customers every step of the way.
Every stage from design, build, walkthrough, selections, through to buyoff we were encouraged to visit, consulted with and welcomed. The whole process was so organized and smooth (even when working through any issues) that you really can just sit back and trust that all will work out according to plan. Whenever we went to visit the build every single contractor engaged us in conversation and was more than happy to discuss what they were doing to the house; I had conversations with everyone from the foundation team, framers, roofers, flooring team etc., you feel like an active part of the process. Similarly when we met with the suppliers to make our selections they were friendly, accommodating and willing to help out Lakeland customers in any way they could. In fact to take that point a step further all suppliers and trades people had nothing but rave reviews for Lakeland Homes as a great company to deal with, so as a customer when you are hearing that from the people that work with your builder on a full time basis it gives you a lot of confidence that you have made the right choice. As our build came to completion (ahead of schedule I might add!) we started to see all of the planning and work come to fruition. At this point it becomes easy to just finish up and move on and maybe forget about the little details, move on to another build….well not when working with this team! They were as involved as ever in identifying and working on any little item that did not meet the Lakeland “standard” for quality and finish. When the time finally came to have our final walk through and sign off on our home we were excited but also proud, proud of the beautiful home that they had created for us but also proud of the decision we made to build with such a quality home building team; Lakeland Homes.
Our entire experience had the “WOW” factor in so many ways. Thank-you guys for building our family not only a new house but something we are very proud to call our HOME.
Customers for life,
Aaron and Dana
We want to take the time to extend our appreciation and gratefulness to the wonderful job Lakeland Homes did in constructing our new home.

To the Lakeland Homes Family,
It is with much pleasure that we write this letter. We would like to thank you personally for taking us through a very exciting journey as we built our “forever home”. Everything we desired in our new home was made a reality as we consulted with Andre and Mike from Lakeland Homes. From choosing a floor plan, to the finishing details; the personal attention we received went above and beyond what we could have ever expected. Deadlines were met and work was carried out according to schedule, and in a most professional way. The quality in our home reflects the character and workmanship of your employees and trades.
As we have settled into our new home, questions and small issues have come up, and your team has been right there for us. We have told everyone who has asked how pleased we are with our Lakeland Home, and will continue without hesitation to praise and recommend your company. Again, from our family to yours, Thank you! Respectfully,
The Salvati Family
Both Andre and Mike from Lakeland Homes were wounderful to deal with.
Any questions or concerns we had during and after the building process were addressed and/or taken care of immediately. Also all the Lakeland Homes staff and hired trades were friendly and prompt.
After a hectic few years of moving across the country, a baby, a wedding then baby #2 the last thing we thought we would be doing was building a home. But of course we did, we fell in love with a two storey design by Lakeland Homes.
A big thank you to Mike and all your staff for making the home building process a pleasurable, stress free moment in our lives.
