    • We had an excellent experience with 3 Pillar Homes. From the moment we met the sales staff and the owner of the company we felt very at home with the staff. The building process went smoothly and problems were easily corrected with the building supervisor. I would recommend this company for housebuilding and we love the final result!!

    • DREAM BUILDERS! 3 Pillar Homes not only built us our custom dream home on our wooded dream lot, but were beyond an incredible team to work with. From our first meet with Lee at the Jerome Village model, shortly followed by a conversation with 3 Pillar's President, Zenios, to getting hands on with their amazing design team and design ROCKSTAR, Brooke, 3 Pillar Homes made our building process better than we could have ever imagined! Amongst all our quirky and particular requests, they managed to bring all our dreams to life, and for that, we are beyond grateful! Thank you 3 Pillar! We miss you guys!

      Tony and Deborah G.

    • We live in our second home built by Zenios and team. Likely not our last! The craftsmanship is unparalleled. Highly recommend!

      Karen and Jason C.

    • Being first time home buyers with no prior experience and also both of us being busy professionals and new parents, we had lot of apprehensions about building a new home. After looking at the amazing houses by 3 Pillar, and feedback from our friends (Rahul Kumar, Swetha Reddy), we decided to give it a try and started talking with Lee. We are really glad that we took that step, each and every person that we interacted thru out this process (Zenios, Lee, Adam, Brooke and Chris) always went above and beyond. 3 Pillar Homes is not only a custom builder, but also a home owner focused builder. They care for each and every requirement we have and ask for. Each and every member of the team will never let you compromise for good, they always try to get the best . Amazing team with great team spirit and tremendous energy!

    • As if their motto didn't say it all, "Building Dreams", 3 Pillar Homes did just that for our family. From the very start, they made us feel like family and helped us find the perfect lot. Worked with us to make changes to the basic floor plan to help fit our family needs while giving our home a unique touch. The detail that went into every process made our first building experience the best it could be. Although we are blessed with our "forever" home, if we had to do it all over again 3 Pillar Homes would be our first call!

      Ashley and Gordy H.

    • A year ago my husband and I had a dream of building our own house. We are so thankful that we chose 3 Pillar as our builder. From day one, our minds were at ease because of the thorough explanation about the build process and design phases we had received. 3 Pillar helped answer any questions we had and did a wonderful job partnering with us to design a floor plan that fit our family's needs. Words can not express the gratitude I have for working with such a phenomenal builder and for helping us build our dream home! We love everything about our new home and can not wait for the memories we will create! ~Forever grateful~

    • We built our home in 2013/14 with 3 Pillar Homes. We had quite the "elaborate" design, as we wanted something Victorian looking with an open floor plan. 3 Pillar worked with us hand-in-hand with every last detail. We did have a few issues arise that are typical of every construction, but in the end we love every aspect of our new home. I also have the privilege of photographing new 3 Pillar homes, so I get to see first hand the total construction and transformation of these homes. They are BEAUTIFUL!

      Crystal Jo and Jason H. | Estates at Pinnacle Club

    • From the moment we decided to build, we knew it would be with 3 Pillar. This is our second 3 Pillar home! The process started with floor plan design and the focus was entirely on our family and how we were going to live in the space. This approach really allowed us to maximize functionality in our home. The 3 Pillar team really took the time to get to know our family and looked at each room with us to make sure we were getting exactly what we needed. The step by step process makes it so easy to know what is expected of you as the customer and what is expected of the builder. The use of technology during the process made it very easy for us to follow along and be constantly in tune with where our house was and what the next steps were. We have a wonderful experience and love our new home!

    • My husband and I built a custom built home with 3 Pillar Homes. Initially in the process, we enjoyed meeting with their Sales Representative, Lee. She was always professional and informative about the process. Once we decided to move forward with the build, we met with the owner Zenios to discuss the floor plan that we needed, and the features that we wanted in the home. Zenios was also great to work with. He was willing to be available for us whenever we wanted to sit down and discuss our plans for the home. The building process went well. We also really liked our production supervisor. He worked very hard to try to keep us on schedule and was available to us when we needed him. If at any time during the build if something didn't meet our expectations the supervisor remedied the situation. We feel our home is well built and the quality level of the finished product definitely met our expectations. We love our home! Also, I am a real estate agent and I have been through many homes. I know that every home doesn't have that high quality "solid" built feel, but our home does. When a client is looking to build a custom home, I would advise them to meet with the team at 3Pillar Homes.

    • We are so happy with our 3 Pillar Home! From our initial tour of the model home to our design and build process, our closing and now a year later with our one year walk through we have always enjoyed working with the 3 Pillar staff and have felt respected and appreciated. Especially by our project manager, Chris-- who is professional, knowledgeable, and talented at what he does! We get so many compliments on the design and quality of our home, we have referred several friends and will continue to do so. Thank you 3 Pillar, you are the BEST in Columbus and beyond!

      Matt and Kayla A.

    • 3 Pillar Homes is an excellent custom builder that cares about their client's needs. We have a long history of working with builders as interior designers, and 3 Pillar Homes is one of the stand outs! 3 Pillar has a lot of upscale details that come standard in building a home with them. We have seen a wide variety of styles that are unique to each client's taste. Not only do clients enjoy 3 Pillar's complete professionalism when working with them; they walk away from their building experience feeling as if they are family!

    • We absolutely love our 3 Pillar Home! The classic design and open spaces are a perfect fit for our family. You all have really done an excellent job throughout the entire process and I want to express my appreciation. I will continue to let family, friends, neighbors and others know how happy we are with our home to future home builders.

    • I just wanted to thank for your working with me and my family to build our "Dream Home"! We are very happy with the service that your team provided throughout the building process. It can be stressful building a new home especially when you are customizing things and you are not sure how it will turn out. I can tell you that it turned out even better than we even imagined! Lee was so friendly and knowledgeable upfront. We were pretty much sold after talking to her. She is by far the best salesperson that we met. We did speak with a number of other builders. Doug was always attentive and took great notes on the items that needed fixed. He was also tough on the vendors and made sure that things were done right. It was great that you walked us through our plans and made some suggestions along the way like having zone heating installed and pre-finishing the basement. We really appreciate that we could talk to the owner of the company anytime throughout the process. Overall it was a great experience!!!!! I am your #2 salesperson now behind Lee!!

      Jason and Kendra L.

    • Swetha and I would like to personally thank you for talking us through a very exciting journey in building our new home. Once we met and began the project, everything that we desired in our new home was made a reality as we consulted with your expert sales and design personnel. The personal attention that we received from Zenios, Lee Solomonides and Randy Webb, along with the rest of the 3 Pillar Homes team made our move an easy one. The timetable for completion was challenging and the cooperation that we received form everyone was outstanding. We can remember speaking with Lee about our desire for a new home, and the design we would like, and Lee Solomonides said, "I have the perfect plan for you." Lee was right. The 3 Pillar Homes treated our family with respect, class and dignity, and we are very thankful that you took the time to personally tender to our needs. Those particular qualities that you and your sales team demonstrated made the process a wonderful experience. Our sales representative, Lee Solomonides was honest and professional. She was very reliable and personal and she represented the company with class. We are happy that Lee was our representative in the development of our house. As we settle into our new home, we have had some questions, and your team has been right there for us. We, as a family appreciate all of the help that you have given us, and continue to do so. The quality of representation and the attention to detail from the beginning of the process to the finished product has been remarkable. We are now proud owners of a new home, and we are very happy with our decision to have 3 Pillar Homes as our new home builder. Our family has always been impressed with organizations that take the personal touch and the "family way" into their approach. We are very thankful that 3 Pillar Homes took that approach with our family. The workmanship is detailed and of high quality. Your continued support is greatly appreciated. Thank you so very much for your dedication to our project and our family. We appreciate all that you have done for us.

      Rahul and Swetha K.

    • "We have bee n very happy with 3 Pillar throughout the entire process of building our home. We were impressed that 3 pillar could customize plans to fit our needs as a family. We found that many of the standard features offered in 3 Pillar homes were only available as options with other builders. We were also appreciative of being informed of the progression throughout the building process. We are very proud of our home and highly recommend 3 Pillar to anyone interested in building. 3 Pillar understands the difference between a house... and a home."

      Ayman & Jeani K.

    • We enjoyed the entire process of building our first home! We were really excited to move into our new home and had a GREAT experience with the whole 3 pillar staff. We would highly recommend to check 3 Pillar Homes and their product out.

      Ami and Charlie Cole

    • We had our walk through this morning with our superintendent... WOW is all that we could say! You all have really done an excellent job throughout the entire process and we would like to express our appreciation. You have what I believe to be the foundation of a great company... I will continue to express our appreciation to all future home builders. Keep up the GREAT work!!!

      Matt and Michelle Benedum

    • I cannot tell you how much Taren and I appreciate the time and compassion 3 Pillars has shown to us during this stressful time. Taren and I feel we not only picked the best Home builders in Columbus, but feel we have made new friends. Thank you!

      Chuck and Taren Boak

    • Josh and I were both first-time homebuyers when we started working with 3Pillar, we are also both in the mortgage industry. We had experienced so many horrible builders that we were pretty nervous about thinking about building let alone talking to a builder; however, we were instantly comfortable dealing with 3 Pillar Homes. Their focus on great customer service was evident from day one. After numerous meetings, changing of minds on lots and floorplans (a couple of times), and the passing of a full year, Josh and I finally found the perfect design and lot. During this time we never felt rushed to make a decision. 3 Pillar actually encouraged us to take our time in the decision making process and bent over backwards to provide us with time and information. It was as though it was more important to them that our home was perfect than it was to us! That attitude and helpfulness carried on through our entire building experience. It is easy to see that 3Pillar is not just in the business of building homes, but also to build relationships and make dreams come true. Our friends and family have been amazed at our building experience and the fact that we actually enjoyed it. In all honesty.... We're torn right now. We love our house and want to stay in it forever, but we are also looking forward to building with 3Pillar again.

      Julie and Josh Roberts

    • "It has been a pleasure going through the design planning and construction process of building a new custom home with 3 Pillar Homes. This is my second custom built home in Central Ohio and I choose 3 Pillar Homes for their incredible value that they bring to the table. Their strategic and global thinking has enabled my family to enjoy a great home without sacrificing our needs and our wants. They are committed to providing excellent customer service and I have been very pleased with their follow through in the post construction phase."

      Terry Poole

    • "Zenios and co., Lisa and I have moved around quite a bit and built a few times. This is by far the shortest 1 yr list of any new build. You build great houses and we're really pleased with ours. Thanks again for everything. "

      Andrew & Lisa Cheung

    • "One sentence to describe our process with 3 Pillar Homes is: "Building a home with 3 Pillar Homes completely exceeded our expectations and if we had to do it all over, we would choose 3 Pillar again... and again... and again!" For most families, a new home is one of the largest investments they make and it is ultra important to trust this huge investment to a builder who can effectively execute upon the things that are important to the client. From the first time we visited the model home, it was easy to see that 3 Pillar builds a quality home. Early on in the discussions with 3 Pillar, Zenios and his team conveyed very effectively that throughout the home-building process, their focus is always on honor, quality, and design because those are the things that maximize the building experience for the client. The 3 Pillar team did more than win our business, they won our trust. More importantly, they worked to keep that trust and build upon it while they were also building our new home. It was very much a collaborative process from beginning to end with Zenios and his team serving effectively as consultants by offering ideas, suggestions, and alternatives throughout. They encouraged us to visit other homes that were in construction to inspire ideas and they were flexible when we wanted to make changes. We always felt that they were just as invested in our new home as we were. They set realistic expectations and they kept their word. They followed up consistently to keep our project on target and communicated with us via phone, email, and through appointments to keep us updated on the status on all the phases of construction. From the salesperson to the vendors to the construction superintendent to the owner, we were well taken care of by 3 Pillar Homes and we absolutely love our home. We are Raving Fans!"

    • I work together with 3 Pillar Homes as their Lighting supplier. The entire team at 3 Pillar is so easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions that may arise. From my end, 3 Pillar is very accommodating with any electrical ideas the customer brings to the design. I would highly recommend 3 Pillar Homes to anyone who wants to build their dream home!

      Megan Martin

    • As the showroom contact for Ferguson, I have had a very positive experience working with 3 Pillar Homes. I get quick responses which lead to keeping projects on track, an open line of communication between myself, the customer, and 3 Pillar homes which translates into a positive experience for homeowners, and a friendly staff willing to do everything necessary to make sure the buyer is getting what they want. 3 Pillar Homes has beautiful models to display their handiwork and give prospective new homeowners an idea of how beautiful their finished product will be. All in all, quality homes produced by people who care about what they are building!

      Ryann Castro

    • Chris, project manager, provided great feedback and support on what features would make sense/ease of service in the home . The checklists he covered before and after the builds were quite important for our understanding of expectations. It was pleasing to see a central means (builder-trend) to reference change-order and overall electronic communication management. This was quite pivotal throughout the build process to maintain alignment. November 2, 2019
