"Doug Strecker with Strecker Homes was a complete joy to work with. His team had such an attention to detail, and came to the table with even a greater creative vision for our home than we originally had. When our home was finished (and quicker than expected), it completely blew us away. There is not a single guest who does not feel the warmth and who does not respond with a jaw dropping, "WOW!" Thank you Doug for building us such a beautiful home."
-- Dr. Kirk and JoLayne Elliott
"As the developer of the Walden Preserve Neighborhood, I have had the opportunity to work with many builders over the years. What impresses me the most about Doug is: his ability to deliver a high quality home at an excellent price, providing immediate equity to the buyer. If I were looking for a builder to build my own home, I would choose Doug."

"It's take a house to make home. Doug Strecker helped us build our dream house that has become home. We had many custom features that required endless hours of detail by Doug and his team. They were up to the challenge. Building a custom home can be one of most wonderful and difficult seasons in a family's life. Doug helped manage expectations, meet deadlines, and all with financial integrity. Anyone considering building a custom: I would highly recommend Strecker Homes. They are the best in the business."

"When you're building a home by long distance you need to work with people you trust and who deliver on their commitments. While we did have family here sending us pictures of the progress, there were regular communications and updates with progress reports. We can strongly recommend Strecker Homes for their quality, cost management and creative solutions to challenges faced along the way. We've now been in our home for over two years and continue to showcase our home to friends and those planning to build their own custom home. Our home is a great example of the quality Rampart is able to deliver."

Helping Clients Heal After Waldo Canyon Fire
On June 26, 2012, the Waldo Canyon fire destroyed our home in Mountain Shadows. We were heartbroken because we had lost everything. Shortly afterwards, we began the proactive and often arduous task of interviewing numerous home builders in Colorado Springs. We exercised due diligence and talked extensively to both production and custom builders about the process of building our new home on the same lot. The process was daunting at first, yet we grew increasingly comfortable as we gained insight as to what details were involved. After a few busy weeks, we unhesitatingly and unequivocally selected Mr. Doug Strecker of Strecker Homes to build our new home. Doug’s reputation in the industry of building quality homes as well as his honesty and trustworthiness were important criteria in our selection.
Our first meeting with Doug was thorough, VERY educational, and especially comforting. He came to the meeting as our advocate, prepared with blueprints and other documentation related to our previous home, knowing that we had NO EXPERIENCE in the rebuilding process. In retrospect, our initial meeting with Doug served as an apt starting point in our long-term relationship. NO OTHER BUILDER had done for us in our initial meetings what Doug had done. This key point proved to be THE key differentiator in our selecting Strecker Homes to build our new home. We knew then that Doug would be and remain our unwavering advocate.
On November 8, 2012, Doug began construction and on March 8, 2013, we moved into our new home. In four short months, which Doug had estimated the length of the building process to be, we moved into our dream house. During the construction period, Doug maintained open and continuous communications with us that included fun visits to design centers (i.e., to select appliances, cabinetry, tile, lighting, etc.), progress reports, and comprehensive reviews wherein we were tasked to make decisions (i.e., where to place electrical outlets and light switches). Doug’s counsel and patience proved invaluable to us during the planning and building phases, as we had no experience on which to draw.
In summary, we considered many builders to rebuild for us after losing our home in the Waldo Canyon fire. Doug came to us highly recommended and was a blessing to us from the moment we met him. He was patient, thorough, and very considerate of our situation. We trusted him completely and are extremely happy with our new home, which he finished in exactly the time frame promised! Thank you, Doug Strecker of Strecker Homes, for building our beautiful new home and helping us heal!
