"When we decided to teardown our old 1960’s house in Mystic Island, we went looking at homes in the area that were currently under construction. We happened upon a Miller Homes’ house and met Jim for the first time. I was impressed with the quality construction and the ease with which I could communicate with Jim. At that time it was just a casual meeting, and we went our separate ways. My wife and I decided on a modular type of construction and attempted to make a connection with three other modular home builders. We were very disappointed with the attitude and lack of interest in our house that these builders gave us. At that point I remembered Jim, and looked him up.
The interest and straightforward approach of Miller Homes was a breath of fresh air. We showed him a floor plan we liked from the internet, and Jim took it from there. I particularly liked his ability to communicate with the local building officials in order to keep the building process moving. Having a local builder is key, particularly after completion when you need the builder nearby to fix those little nits that happen in every new house. Jim has always been there for us. We are very happy we went with Miller Homes and would recommend him to my best friend. In fact, I already have."

"I met Jim Miller the summer of 2005. He was supervising a crew that was placing a modular house on my neighbor’s lot. Now, of course I was concerned when I learned that my neighbor was going to knock down his beach house and place a large house on the same property. How was this going to affect me and my property? My worries were relieved very quickly as I watched the demolition, clean up, readiness for the new house and the placement of the six modular boxes.
During this whole process, my wife and I were toying with the idea of doing the same thing with our beach house. It took a year to decide, and the summer of 2006 we interviewed three different companies. We met Jim at a diner on a Sunday morning and he listened as we put out different ideas we wanted for our house. He came back with a price which was comparable with the other two companies, except he included everything. A real turnkey operation. I liked the way Jim conducted business from the very first meeting. We took the plunge and signed the contract. Of course, we were worried. We met with Jim many more times that summer and worked out all the details, including payments. Jim was never about money, he was about doing the job.
We told him we’d like to use the original house until the end of September, and would like to be in the new house by May 1, the next year. We signed the contract, gave him the first payment and waited. Jim never asked me to run to the building department, and never said, ‘Mike, we have a problem.’ Everything was handled professionally. Two weeks before the house went online, we made a change in the plans. Jim called the engineering department and had a call back within two hours—with assurance that the change would not be a problem.
The house was knocked down in early October, the land was cleared, the pilings placed, and the house delivered and set in November. Within the next few days, the house was weather tight. Over the next couple of months, Jim’s crews were there doing what they needed to do, and I was always allowed to check on their work, which I found to be professionally done. Jim and I spoke frequently, and in early April I moved in. Of course there was a punch list, and it was taken care of immediately. After I moved in, many people walking by would admire the house, and I always took the opportunity to show off my house and give Jim many accolades. Jim would bring prospective customers over to the house, and I would give them the tour and tell them that I would NOT hesitate for one second to recommend Jim Miller as their contractor.
Jim and I have been in contact over the years and when he asked me to write this little testimonial, I agreed immediately. I could on for a few more pages, but I won’t, and I will finish this by saying ‘It was a very pleasant experience working with Jim Miller."

"We needed to rebuild our shore home to accommodate our growing family. After shopping, we chose a modular home which we found to be the most cost effective solution. We chose Miller Homes, and builder, Jim Miller. We were able to customize our new home design. The build, start to finish, took three months! The quality of the home is excellent. Jim Miller supported us every step of the way. We highly recommend Miller Homes."

"After much preliminary research on the advantages of stick built and modular homes, we decided that modular would best meet our needs when building a new home. We met Jim Miller and were very impressed with his knowledge and with the product he had to show us. Jim spent many hours with us as we planned and re-planned, making suggestions and offering his expertise. We were able to decide exactly how we wanted the floor plan to be and were given complete latitude on the kitchen design. Jim was quite specific about what to expect and, best of all, when he said he or his crew would be there, they were. The whole building process went very quickly. Throughout the process we found everyone pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. Each person took pride in the work they were doing and the final product is wonderful. It is with pleasure that we highly recommend MILLER HOMES and especially Jim Miller, his staff and crews."

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Miller Homes! I love my new bathroom/laundry room/ bedroom renovation. I am more than pleased! Jim Miller from the beginning was terrific. He gave an estimate and it was very close to the actual cost. Jimmie was so willing to work with us from the start no matter how we wanted things done he was good about doing it our way! He and his crew were hands down, the nicest bunch of people (not to mention talented) that I could ask for. If you are fortunate enough to meet them you will consider yourself lucky as well! I don't want to under emphasize what beautiful work they do/did because I have the before and after pics to prove that…but I do want to convey to anyone looking for remodeling/renovations this; Jim and his crew not only give an excellent end result but they go above and beyond what you will ever expect."
