“We have been working with Steve and Emily for almost 2 years. We started by purchasing a lot in a development that Schmidt Construction was building. From the start Steve and Emily were very responsive and helpful with the design of our custom dream home. They both answered texts and phone calls within minutes and always had the answers we needed. I am in construction myself, I know that things can go wrong sometimes, but I can honestly say that nothing did. Timelines were right on tract, if there was a change in price everything was discussed beforehand, if we wanted something changed it was changed. If you are building a home or remodeling your home, it would be a good idea to call Schmidt. Highly recommend!”

“Thank you guys and gals at Schmidt Construction for my beautiful remodeled home.  It is greatly appreciated.”

Ellie Salisbury


“It is difficult to express in words how proud we are of the ‘Dream House’ you and your team of employees and subcontractors created for us.  Actually, it is a ‘Home’ and not a house.  From the very beginning, it was clear to us that you have very high quality and workmanship standards.  You were definitely our ‘Builder of Choice’ from the first time we met with you.  We heard a number of ‘horror stories’ about other people’s experience building a house, but that was not our experience with you.  You dealt with us in a professional manner at every step, had great ideas about design and functionality of the home, and cautioned us about not repeating mistakes others had made.  We were always comfortable talking with you.  We had many unsolicited positive endorsements from your subcontractors about how they enjoy working for you.  It is evident in the finished product.  We are blessed to have worked with you.  Please feel free to use us as a reference at any time.”

“We are very pleased with the way our kitchen and porch remodels have turned out, and we are enjoying living in them.  We’ve found Schmidt Homes and you in particular, Greg (Schmidt), very accommodating and easy to work with.  If we have any more remodeling projects in the future, we’ll be sure to give you a call. ”

“We want to thank you for making a dream come true for us in building our home.  Ever since you remodeled our other house, we wanted a ‘Schmidt Home.’  Although we said it before, it bears repeating – integrity and quality are your hallmarks and we wouldn’t have anyone else build for us.  Thanks again to all of you for a great home.”

“We hired Steven Schmidt Construction to remodel out 100 year old farmhouse we couldn’t be happier. Not only was the quality of the craftsmanship outstanding, but the entire process was completely professional from the first meeting to the final walk-through. It was easy to trust that each step, whether completed by Schmidt Construction or one of their subcontractors, would be done meticulously and within budget. We will definitely hire them for our next project!”

“Steven Schmidt Construction is exceptional! The builder and entire crew gave our home personal attention and care before, during, and after completion. Steve’s commitment to work closely together to meet our needs was outstanding. Attention to fine detail, thoroughness, and the use of only quality material and craftsmanship makes this builder one of a kind. Schmidt Construction had built out family a very ‘happy home.’ With our sincere gratitude!”

“When we decided to build a new home, we knew we wanted something different. Ontario Circle was just what we were looking for. The homes were a refreshing blend of classic style and modern convenience. Even better, the designs were flexible enough so that we could make sure the house fir us perfectly. Steve kept the project on track and lived up to his reputation four attention to detail. The staff of Schmidt Construction was always available to answer our questions and they worked hard so that we could enjoy the building process. We are thrilled with our new home and look forward to watching Ontario Circle grow!”

Linda & Jim Stein


“We just wanted to thank you for being so helpful and thoughtful.  We realize you didn’t have to let us move in early.  Thankfully you did, this was such a hard move for us with 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 year old kids.  Thank you for the gift basket and gift certificates.  That was very nice.

Thank you so much for building our dream home!”

Paulette & Clark Johnson

We are really happy with our new home and neighborhood.  You have made our move from Minneapolis to Northfield a very pleasant experience.   Mary was a great help to us!  Your tradesmen have responded to our needs with much dignity and concern.  It is very evident how much labor and pride has gone into building our home.  It is outstanding in every way.  ‘Precious & few are friends like you.’  With our sincere thanks!”
