We looked at several builders in the area and chose Trusst for their excellent reputation. They reduced the myriad decisions of custom home building to a manageable level while giving us top quality materials to choose from. Their project managers ensured that our house was well built and completed in a timely manner. We’ve recommended Trusst to several of our friends and their homes are being built as I write this.

Rick Allen

We purchased our home 2 years ago and I couldn’t be happier! The building process went very smoothly even while living in another state as we were able to log into our portal and view updated photos weekly of the progress. If we were to build again we would only consider Trusst!

Brenda Prather

Working with Trusst Builder Group was an excellent experience. We began by selecting a base model and then making some personal changes and additions. They were very good in coming up with the design changes we wanted, making good recommendations to meet our needs and finding the additional products we asked for. We did not live in the area at the time but they provided regular updates included online photos throughout the process. The quality of their work was exceptional and on time.
