"THE BEST DECISION WE EVER MADE, A SILVESTRI BUILT HOME"
My wife has been in contact with the SILVESTRI team regarding service and maintance items for our SILVESTRI home. The Silvestri team has been so responsive and pleasant to deal with. You have pointed us in the right direction with all of our requests and questions. Thanks you so much for your help. We are from Philadelphia whrere builders aren't so helpful. I can't imagine ever going with another builder other than SILVESTRI should we ever have to move. Thanks you again. We are so happy that we bought a home built by SILVESTRI. It was the best decision we ever made.

"THE SILVESTRI TEAM HAS GONE ABOVE AND BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS"
I wanted to express how wonderful the SILVESTRI team has been to us and how accommodating your team has been in building our beautiful home. We are so please with our home. Building with SILVESTRI has been a wonderful experience. You have a wonderful team that has gone above and beyond our expectations.
" I DEFIANTLY RECOMMEND SILVESTRI TO ANYONE LOOKING TO BUILD A HOME"
I want to take a moment to Thank you and the rest of SILVESTRI'S staff for building our beautiful house. You guys made it look easy and went beyond the call of duty to meet our expectations. I usually do not make recommendations, but will defiantly recommend SILVESTRI to anyone looking to build a home. Ailaine has put one of her freinds in contact with your sales agent Tish.
"WE ARE VERY HAPPY WITH OUR CHOICE OF BUILDER AND WOULD RECOMMEND SILVESTRI HOMES."
Thank you so much for the beautiful and well constructed home that you built for us. We are very happy with how it turned out. We enjoyed working with your staff and your subcontractors. Everyone was more than accommodating to us.
We made quite a few modifications to our home even in the midst of construction. This gives our home a truly "custom" feel. We appreciate your wilingness to work with us on all of the changes that we made.
What also impressed us about Silvestri Homes was the standard list of features. Many of these standard features would be considered upgrades at most other builders.
We are very happy with our choice of builder and would recommend Silvestri Homes. Thank you for making the Meadows at Lewis Center such a wonderful place to live.
--Nick and Jackie Chirico
"SILVESTRI HELPED US FULFILL OUR DREAM OF BUILDING A CUSTOM HOME."
Joe Silvestri helped us fulfill our dream of buiding a custom home. We selected one of their many floor plans and adapted it to make it our own. Joe and his staff helped us through what could have been an overwhelming process. We never felt pressured or rushed to make decisions. Silvestri's flexibilty to accommodate our busy schedules was appreciated. The few issues that occurred during the building process were all handled professionally and timely. We were amazed at how personable and caring Joe was with our family.
Thank you Joe and staff for making our dream home a reality.
--Paul and Kim Seese
"WE STRONGLY AND TRULY RECOMMEND SILVESTRI HOMES"
Silvestri Homes built our new home in Little Bear Village in 2011, and we now have been in our new home for almost two months. Before this new home, we had been in our first home in Oak Creek Village for 7 years. To find our affordable dream home, we spent more than one year searching existing homes and new home builders in the north Columbus area. During our search, one beautiful two-story existing home attracted us, which is located on Trace Drive and was built by Silvestri Homes in 2004. Then we visited the Silvestri model home and found that Silvestri has many wonderful floor plans, especially 5 level splits. At that moment we were aware we had found our dream home. Now, not only us but also all of our friends who have visited our new home, like Silvestri Homes very much. We want to thank Joe and Carlo for building out dream home. Based on our experience, we strongly recommend Silvestri Homes to everyone who wants to build a new home for the following reasons:
1. Silvestri Homes has many wonderful floor plans.
2. Silvestri Homes has many good features and a high standard of quality. The exceptional details, such as the gorgeous wood floors, wainscoting and crown molding are most notable.
3. Silvestri Homes provides a true picture of the new home the customer is going to build from the very beginning. What you see in the model home is what you will have in your new home. Unlike other home builders, many upgraded features are standard features in a Silvestri home.
4. Silvestri Homes is a true custom builder. The owners, Joe and Carlo, have direct contact with you either face to face, by email, or phone. They are willing to change plans at your request and try to fit your needs wherever possible.
5. Silvestri Homes keeps costs low and fits your budget. Unlike other home builders, they cut costs at many levels, such as lowering office expenses and controlling the building costs, while always maintaining their high quality.
6. Silvestri Homes requests that their subcontractors pass on their cost prices to the home owners when they do choose to upgrade.
7. Silvestri Homes owners, Joe and Carlo, are directly involved and supervise daily the construction of your new home. They enjoy building homes and input all their passion and experience into each home they build, as if they were building it for themselves.
Thank you very much Joe and Carlo. We love our new home very much!
--Xiaochuan and Su
"BY FAR THE BEST HOME BUILDING EXPERIENCE."
Thank you Joe and Silvestri homes for our beautiful home. My wife and I have built 6 homes and this has been by far the best experience. We love the quality and the attention to detail is second to none. We really enjoyed working with you and your staff throughout the entire process. Thanks again.
--Cheryl and Bob Piatka
"WE ARE REALLY PLEASED WITH THE HIGH QUALITY FINISHED PRODUCT"
We built our new home with Silvestri Custom Homes and I must say that it was one of the best decisions we have made. From our first contact with Silvestri we were given the utmost attention and all of our questions and concerns were answered promptly by the Silvestri team. Silvestri took a lot of stress out of building a new home and we know that is not always the case. We were given plenty of time to make our selections on interior items and much attention was paid to even the most minor details. Each and every person involved in the process was friendly and they were always happy to discuss our requirements and give suggestions. The service we received after moving in was great too. We are really pleased with the high quality finished product.
I would like to thank Joe, Carlo, Tish, Larry and Eric with whom we directly worked with and all others who were involved in the process too.
"WE LOVE OUR SILVESTRI HOME"
Dear Joe and Carlo: We just want to thank you for building amazing houses. We are so enjoying our Silvestri home, it is truly our "dream home." It has made leaving all of our family and friends in California a smoother transition. Our gorgeous wood floors, wainscoting, crown moulding, and views are so wonderful to come home to. We looked at so many houses, but knew this was our home right away. Thank you so much for finishing the basement so beautifully, Wow! I truley believe this home was waiting for us. Thanks again.
--Bill & Stephanie Gerlach
"LISTENING TO CUSTOMER NEEDS, COMMUNICATING EFFICIENTLY, QUALITY PRODUCT."
Dear Joe and Carlo: We are writing this letter to thank you and tell you how appreciative we are of you, your SILVESTRI team and all of the sub-contractors, suppliers and their sales people who made our building experience with SILVESTRI CUSTOM HOMES a completely satisfying experience.
From our introduction to SILVESTRI HOMES by your open house hostess Mary, and our first meeting with Joe, We learned that the modifications we needed would be possible. Joe Listened to our accessibility requirements and by working together with Joe and the architect, we were able to customize our ranch home's floor plan to fit our family's needs to make our new home a living space to match our lifestyle.
As our home progressed, from the excavation to the final walk through, the SILVESTRI construction team remained professional and courteous at all times on our weekly visits. As promised, just prior to our closing, your detail guy Greg corrected our pre-closing punch list and after 60 days our 60 day punch list was efficiently completed.
The quality and choices of exterior and interior building materials the SILVESTRI'S offer are exceptional. The interior suppliers and experienced sales staff at their conveniently-located design centers guided us into coordinating the cabinets, flooring, walls, counters, lighting, plumbing fixtures and appliances so that our homes's interior evolved in a smooth transition to installation. The patience and knowledge of all the suppliers, including the landscapers, clearly have been extremely helpful for us as first-time homebuilders.
You both have created a successful work culture for providing great customer care by listening, communicating efficiently and of course building a quality product. Both Tom and I are thankful to have the good fortune to own a custom-built SILVESTRI home.
--Susan and Tom Kozlowski.
"COMMUNICATION WAS EXCELLENT"
Dear Joe, We have now been in our new home about four months. I wanted to write a short letter and provide my feedback on our new home building process; especially considering this is the SECOND home SILVESTRI has built for us. This was a very different experience for us because this home was custom designed. As you know we considered another " high end" builder with a good reputation before selecting SILVESTRI as our builder. We are very happy with our home and our decision. Regardless of the hours spent up front in design and selections of finishes, I'm convinced it is impossible to visualize it all. Changes and modifications are a part of the custom home construction process. Throughout the building process, communication with you and your subcontractors was excellent. Upgrade costs were reasonable and were explained so that we understood them. Throughout the process, if there was a mistake (either in design or workmanship), I was confident you were committed to fixing it. Please feel free to share our letter with others. I would also be happy to serve as a reference for anyone considering SILVESTRI as the builder for their new home. We offer our best wishes for your continued success. Sincerely,
--John and Bernadette Romelfanger
"SILVESTRI QUALITY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP IS SECOND TO NONE"
A special thanks to Joe and Carlo for making this building experience so positive. From the beginning, it was obvious that they take a personal responsibility for every aspect of the building process. We were pregnant with our first child and Joe made sure that nothing was a stressor or a problem. Joe and Carlo were always accessible for any questions or concerns that we had. We are very proud of our SILVESTRI home. The quality and craftsmanship are second to none. It has exceeded our expectations. We could not be happier. We have recommended SILVESTRI to our friends and will continue to do so without reservation. Best of luck to Joe and Carlo. We have truly enjoyed working with you.
--Rich and Sherri Pesce
"SUBURB QUALITY AND CARE IS WHAT YOU GET WITH SILVESTRI!"
We decided to build with SILVESTRI Homes because of the quality they offered and the reputation of excellence SILVESTRI has in the home industry. This decision was not made lightly due to building our home while living overseas, which in itself is highly stressful. We needed a builder that was going to be able to communicate effectively and consistently. We made the correct decision. Carlo, himself, kept us up to date via the internet with weekly emails(including video and pictures). Knowing that Carlo personally was there dailey at our home made us feel very comfortable that everything was being done correctly. Furthermore, after meeting with Carlo and discussing what SILVESTRI offers in their homes, we discovered that many of the features in our home is standard for SILVESTRI, but are upgrades for other builders!
We have been in our home for approximately 4 months and it is what we expected and even more! We just love the quality, finish, and layout of our home. It is a beautiful home and we are proud to have it and hope to be here for many years to come! Should we ever build again, with out a doubt it will be with SILVESTRI Homes! In an additional note, the aftercare has been just as amazing. If there has been any issues, Carlo has dealt with them swiftly and has continued to check to make sure things are working properly. Subcontractors are an important factor with any builder and I can say that the ones that I have met with have been kind, courteous, and professional. I can tell that they have a great relationship with SILVESTRI Homes and have no doubt that this is just another aspect to the superior craftsmanship that was done in our home!
Excellent job Carlo and SILVESTRI homes....we would recommend Carlo and Joe Silvestri to anyone looking to build!
--Daniel & Heather Cabral
"SILVESTRI HOMES IS THAT BUILDER"
My first introduction to SILVESTRI CUSTOM HOMES was in 1992 when my sister was building her SILVESTRI home. I was not only impressed by the workmanship and quality, but with the professional and friendly relationship she and her husband had with SILVESTRI during the process. In 1993 my husband and I built our FIRST SILVESTRI home, and Carlo went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure everything met our expectations! Carlo was there promptly to respond to a phone call, question, problem or anything in between. After 9 years we decided to build our SECOND home, and I knew, without a doubt, it would be a SILVESTRI home. The result was not only the same quality and workmanship, but thur that process a true friendship grew as Carlo proved to be totally dedicated to nothing but a thoroughly happy customer. As we now approach our "empty nester" stage of life, our future plans are to downsize, and when that time arrives, we will once again choose to work with Carlo for that home. Only a happy customer would repeatedly select the same builder: I am that happy customer and SILVESTRI is that builder. Thanks Carlo!
"SILVESTRI STANDARDS WERE CONSIDERED AS COSTLY OPTIONS WITH OTHER BUILDERS"
We wanted to build our "dream home" in Little Bear, and attempted to work with several builders that would have an open mind with "our basic layout and budget," on how we wanted to live. Carlo Silvestri went out of his way to not only "listen" to our ideas, but also explained which was the most effective way to build with the energy efficiency of the future. He put the wishes and budgets of my wife and I on the forefront and with integrity. We wanted a very open flow to our home, natural wood work, A large kitchen and master suite area that was unique. It was amazing that SILVESTRI'S standards were considered as costly options with the other builders. Not only did SILVESTRI builders complete our home at our budget, but they completed our home in 3 1/2 months. We strongly recommend SILVESTRI homes.
--Jerry & Mary Miller
"QUALITY, CRAFTSMANSHIP, PERSONALIZED SERVICE = Joe and Carlo Silvestri"
Having grown up as a child in Southern Delaware county it has always been a place my wife and I have wanted to return to raise our family and send our kids to school. We recently purchased a Silvestri home in Lakeshore and could not be happier. There are several production and custom home builders in the area none of which match the quality, craftsmanship and personalized service provided by Joe and Carlo. From the day we first met with the Silvestri brothers they were always available to answer any questions and went above and beyond to service our needs. We highly recommend that you consider Silvestri homes for your next home purchase!!
--Matt and Michelle Benedum
"THANKS AGAIN JOE AND CARLO"
When deciding to build a new home, we not only wanted someone that was excellent at building houses, but also someone who cared about their clients needs and wants. After meeting with several custom home builders we chose Silvestri homes to build our new home. Both Joe and Carlo wanted us to be involved in the building process. They were on the job site daily and in contact with us either by phone or email regularly. They were always willing to give their input and help with important decisions. They stuck to their deadline and had us moved into our dream home on schedule. After we moved in, their service didn't stop. They contacted us for our 6 and 12 month walk throughs and sent contractors out immediately. We were very pleased with the entire experience and would highly recommend the Silvestri brothers to any family or friend that was loooking to build their future home. Thank you Joe and Carlo for our beautiful home!
--Bryan and Stephanie Schmehl
"SILVESTRI IS A TRUE CUSTOM BUILDER"
My wife and I are first time home owners who are extremely happy that we chose Silvestri Homes to build our new custom home at Lakeshore and would strongly recommend them to any potential customer.
What attracted us first to the builders is their formidable reputation for quality, trust and close personal care and supervision that the brothers Joe and Carlo Silvestri provide. Being a family-owned firm that builds strong bonds and values its relationships with customers, Silvestri was able to provide us a very special and customized experience throughout the building process.
Silvestri is a true custom builder – both Joe and Carlo spent hours with us understanding our needs, guiding us through our thought process, preparing and modifying conceptual drawings (and believe us, there were a lot of changes!), being extremely flexible with the timelines for financing and closing, and readily accommodating many changes during the build phase. Amazingly, with all the customization, the brothers easily beat the timeline for completion by more than a month!
We realized that the Silvestri brothers leverage their close personal attention in providing the very high standard of quality that the firm is reputed for. This is reinforced by their strong relationships with their partners and suppliers – all of whom without exception are extremely accommodating in treating Silvestri clients as their own. Needless to say, the excellent quality of materials and the detailed workmanship that they provided in our home is a characteristic of every Silvestri house we have visited.
Most, if not all, Silvestri clients will readily agree that of all the custom builders in the Columbus area, Silvestri Homes provides the highest value for the money. The Silvestris run a highly efficient and streamlined operation that enables them to provide the high level of customization and quality at different price-points – we doubt if many other builders can do this at this scale.
As we reflect on our experience we realize how enjoyable and stress-free the process was and for that we are extremely thankful to the Silvestri brothers. We personally value over relationship with them and wish them all the success in their new ventures!
"JOE AND CARLO EPITOMIZE PERSONAL SERVICE"
My wife and I have been living in our Silvestri home for just over a year and couldn't be happier. We researched multiple other home builders and found the value and quality Silvestri homes offer compared to other builders is unparalleled. In addition to the quality and custom features Joe and Carlo add to their product, they epitomize personal service. Throughout the process and over the last year we have been able to pick up the phone and speak with them anytime we had a question. Joe and Carlo put the customer first and have gone to great lenghts to ensure we were happy with our new home. Buying a new home is one of the biggest decisions a couple can make and we are extremely happy we chose Silvestri homes. We would and do recommend Joe and Carlo's family business to anyone in the market for their dream home.
--Jonathan and Amie Crunelle
"WE LOVED BEING ABLE TO WORK WITH YOU PERSONALLY"
Just wanted to say hello and let you know that Sharon and I talk about our former home in ShellBark Ridge...and miss it a lot! One of the finest homes we've owned and lived in to date! We loved the design, floor plan and being able to work with you personally. I also just recently visited the company web site and was glad to see that you're still building custom homes in the Westerville area!
I hope you and your family are doing well...have a Happy Fourth of July Holiday.
Alan and Sharon Rose
"WE FELL IN LOVE WITH THE HOUSE RIGHT FROM THE START!
In choosing to build a house by Silvestri, you will have a home that is inviting, comfortable, beautiful and one that you are proud to show your family and friends! It is the absolute fine quality and exceptional details which are most notable. People with an artistic eye will greatly appreciate the moldings and woodworking and others, who are more interested in just “good old plain” solid construction, will be equally impressed. We fell in love with the house right from the start!
Another important aspect of a Silvestri home is the company’s integrity. They (Joe and Carlo Silvestri) stand behind their work with pride. Joe and Carlo are very genuine people! Anytime we had a general question or a particular service that needed to be done they were very responsive and provided the “service with a smile.” Joe and Carlo enjoy working with you and are happy to pass over to you a beautiful house for your family to love.
We can never imagine moving from our home, but if we ever did, we’d want it to be another Silvestri house!!
--Christine and Joe Zaremba
"UPSCALE DETAILS AND FEATURES, WORK DIRECT WITH BUILDER"
We wanted a quality built home and Silvestri had the perfect floor plan. We really liked the Pittsburg II but wanted to make a few changes to personalize our new home. Joe and Carlo personalized our glass block walk in shower and did a unique southwest texture on our walls that my husband and I help the drywall contractor develop on site. The Silvestri brothers worked with us through the entire process to ensure we had exactly what we wanted. Silvestri homes have upscale features both inside and out which make their homes stand out from the other builders. The Silvestri brothers are easy to work with and made the building of our new home a fun experience.
--Kelly and Ames Ressa
"SILVESTRI HOMES SEPARATES THEMSELVES FROM THE OTHER BUILDERS"
Dear Joe and Carlo Silvestri:
After being married for nearly four years, my wife and I decided to build our dream home. A lot of factors went into which builder we would trust with our most important purchase. We spent a great amount of time looking into many builders. After talking with several friends, Silvestri Homes commitment to quality, customization and value kept coming up.
We were pleased right out of the gate with the personal touch Silvestri Homes offered. Our initial meeting was with Joe Silvestri. Meeting with one of the owners let us know, to them, it is more than building a house. Joe answered all of our questions without trying to pressure us into signing a contract. When we did decide to build with Silvestri Homes, we met with Carlo Silvestri. Carlo sat down with us and went over the floor plan to make sure we were all on the same page. He even gave us some suggestions that ultimately made the home much better. Even with all of the preparatory work that went into our design prior to breaking ground, we still didn't think of everything. This is where Silvestri Homes truly separates itself from the other builders. Throughout the six months it took to build our home, my wife and I continued to think of new things we thought would improve our home. Joe just kept making whatever adjustments needed to be made to make it happen. In talking with other builders, making changes during the construction phase was akin to mission impossible. Being a custom builder doesn't stop once construction starts with Silvestri Homes.
After living in our home for about five months and reflecting on our decision to choose Silvestri Homes, there has never been a day where we feel as though we would have chosen any other builder. If anyone were to ask me about building a new home, I would proudly and strongly recommend they build with Silvestri Homes.
Christopher & Sherre Lopez
"WE FELL IN LOVE WITH YOUR CRAFTSMANSHIP"
While Matt and I were out at our new Silvestri home tonight, a couple with their daughter showed up and asked to tour our home. I said "YES!" They fell in love with your craftsmanship and your home. (Just like Matt and I did) I gave them the tour and the women was crying by the time we got to the master bathroom( a happy cry). While giving the tour a neighbor stopped over and also toured the home. The neighbor also told everyone what great guys the Silvestri brothers are to work with.
The house looks great! Toni is tiling the master bath and it is gorgeous! Oh, one more thing. Your subcontractors are wonderful! Many have told us what great builders you are and that your good guys to work for. I've said it before and I will say it again, we feel very fortunate that our paths crossed with you and your brother. Your homes are beautiful!
--Colleen and Matt Szerencsits
"THE SILVESTRI BROTHERS WORKED WITH US TO CUSTOMIZE OUR HOME"
At the beginning of our home search, we saw many Silvestri homes and were impressed with the quality and the floor plans. After meeting with Joe and Carlo and making our choice, they were willing to work with us and customize the home to our specifications. They were easy to work with which eased the stress of moving and building. We recommend Silvestri Homes!
--Ellen and Doug
"WE WILL RECOMMEND SILVESTRI TO ANYONE LOOKING TO BUILD"
We wanted to write you a note to say thank you and let you know that we absolutely love our house. You were great to work every step of the building process and the end result is beautiful. We will recommend Silvestri to anyone looking to build. Thanks again for all your hard work. It sure made building easy on us!
--Jay and Kelly Compson
"BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY"
As we expected when we started this building journey with you, you have been there to make it a smooth operation. We are so very pleased with the outcome of our home. You went beyond our hopes and thank you seems not enough. I will keep you in prayer that Silvestri may continue with a successful business-how can you fail? Nice guys just don't. Bless you and your family.
--Ed and Mary Barber
"THE WORKMANSHIP AND DETAILS ARE SUPERB"
Dear Joe and Carlo,
We have enjoyed living in a SILVESTRI home and are very sad to be leaving after 10 years. The workmanship and details are superb and we will miss that in Minnesota. It has always been a pleasure working with you both. You have always been willing to take care of any of our concerns and we thank you. May you have continued success in all that you do.
--Jack and Diane Hienton
Dear Joe and Carlo,
What a blessing your company was to us during our Hurricane relief effort. Opening up your hearts to help those in need was a reminder to us here at Eastside Vineyard how kind people can really be. We wish you could have seen the joy all the supplies brought to those in Baten Rouge.
In Christ's love.

"BUYING A SILVESTRI HOME, THE BEST DECISION WE EVER MADE"
Mr. Joe Silvestri,
My wife and I purchased a SILVESTRI built resale home and my wife has been contacting you regarding windows, hardwood floors and other items for our home. You have been so responsive and pleasant to deal with. You have pointed us in the right direction with all our requests and questions. In fact, you have spoken to a few of the vendors for us. Thank you so much for your help. We are from Philadelphia where builders aren't so helpful. I can't imagine ever going with another builder other than SILVESTRI if we should ever have to move. Thanks again. We are so happy that we bought a SILVESTRI home. It was the best decision we ever made.
Harry and Meena Sokhi
"OUR EXPERIENCE WITH SILVESTRI WAS BEYOND COMPARISON"
I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate how soon you took care of any issues or concerns we had with our new home. From all the stories I hear people tell about their builders, it seems that our experience with SILVESTRI is beyond comparison. Thank You.
"BUSINESS VALUES AND SINCERITY"
Joe and Carlo
We wanted to thank you so much for building us a wonderful home on Turnberry Dr. You guys are the best! We have moved to Arizona but will always remember your kindness from the building process and throughout the entire 1 1/2 years living in a Silvestri home. We hope you both continue your business VALUES and SINCERITY with all your clients. The best to both of you!
