I think they have an creative design team and do a great job on new construction or totally gut and redo but just doing minor upgrade and cosmetic upgrades is beneath them.
The entire Otero group has been easy to work with, from finding a lot, to designing my dream home, to making sure we're staying aware of the budget. It's been an absolute pleasure so far!
We have lived in our home for a year now. When we first moved in, I was admittedly jaded with the build process and therefore viewed the experience differently than I do now. We absolutely love our new home and have really enjoyed working with the Otero Team. The service that we continued to receive over the past year has been very comforting and reliable.

Otero really was amazing. They did what they said they would, on the timeline they said they would, at a cost they said they would. Guessing they will not be the cheapest option, but they will be your BEST option. Everyone was a pleasure to work with, but especially my Project Manager John. Communication was spot on, which is sooooo important in a large scale building project. You will find bumps in the road, but he owned them 100%, found a solution, and communicated back to me at every step. And, in the end, my project was much more stunning than I ever could have dreamed up on my own.

Employees & Subcontractors - They are friendly, efficient, and ALWAYS have shown up when they said they were coming.

Additional Comments - We chose Ted and his crew to build our new home because our previous home was built by OSH as well. We were well aware of the quality and workmanship that goes into an Otero home. Ted is easy to work with and guides you through the process. Kaleigh keeps the design aspect running smoothly. Chris is all business, but is great at what he does and is super-knowledgeable. Mike is a really hard worker and goes above and beyond every step of the way. He was a huge help with a lot of the details and is great at communicating the stuff that can be otherwise over-looked.

Employees & Subcontractors - We have had quite a few contractors through our home in the last couple years and I have to say the people that came through Otero homes were above all. Not only did they do top of the line work but they also gave top of the line customer service and made us feel comfortable living in their workspace/ our home.
Field Communication - Corey was great. He came and checked in regularly and any issue or question we had he was quick with an answer and solution.
Field Problem Resolution - Yes! I had the most interaction with the painters. Any imperfection or issue was resolved immediately. They were a pleasure to have in our home and the job turned out exactly how we wanted.
Selections Communication - Kaleigh was so so helpful in the whole planning process. I trusted her judgment more than our own. She has such a talent for visualizing the end result and helping us choose the details to get there. I really appreciated how she would narrow down 3-5 choices that she thinks and had us pick from there- made the whole process a lot less overwhelming for us while still being able to put our own taste in the remodel.

Areas Of Satisfaction - Overall finished product, especially trim work and builtins. Kaleigh did a great job translating our inspiration pics and decisions into life. Very clean job site showed good expectations for subs and pride in the work. Happy with the follow through on their commitments.
Areas Of Satisfaction - 1. Initial consultations were productive and budget-focused allowing us to reach a mutual agreed-upon budget for our project.2. Ted quickly assessed and understood our space in terms of the problems it had and the solutions he could offer.3. Kelly encouraged us to use houzz.com where we compiled photos of our design aesthetic which allowed her to customize our space in the exact style we loved. This was very convenient for us!4. Early morning meetings at their office were professional, organized and brief allowing us to get to work in a timely manner.5. The materials Kelly selected were absolutely stunning yet affordable. Her impeccable design recommendations made the selection phase of the project so easy for us.6. Jeff was an outstanding project manager. He personally saw to every detail and none were overlooked. He was a pleasure to have in our home and we trusted him with our project implicitly. I was extremely impressed with his follow-through on every last item on the check-list.7. From Dan the Tile Man to the electricians, plumbers, and painters, the entire team was talented, hard-working, and skilled. We are so pleased with the high quality of their work.8. The finished project is simply our dream master bath and I truly do not believe we could have achieved this high of a level of satisfaction with any other firm but Kelly and Ted with Otero Signature Homes.
Additional Comments - Our experience to date has been incredible and we look forward to continuing the process of our new construction.
Recognized Excellence - I would like to recognize Ted, Kelley and Kaleigh.
Areas Of Satisfaction - Excellent workmanship, communication and attention to detail.
Recognized Excellence - Everyone we dealt with was amazing including Ted, Kelly, Kaleigh, Matt, Lyn, Corey and many of the sub-contractors
Additional Comments - Overall and incredible building experience from beginning to end. Would highly recommend without reservations.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The top three areas we were most satisfied with were: (1) communication; (2) construction management (Corey H); interior design and problem resolution (Kaleigh / Ted). We challenged Ted's team throughout the project to design and construct a modern home in a city that does not have a lot of modern design. They met all of our expectations and built one of the best modern homes in the city.
Additional Comments - We feel that Ted and his design team are able to offer a specialized custom home building experience that is not similar to other "custom" builders. Ted's process is far superior from other design-build firms who rarely incorporate an interior designer into the project team. Having Kaleigh help us interpret our vision and communicate that interpretation effectively to the construction teams was invaluable. We would highly recommend Otero Signature Homes to our friends and colleagues!!
Likely To Recommend - We have already begun to recommend Otero Signature Homes to firends and work colleagues.
Additional Comments - So far the experience working with Ted and his design team has been exceptional. Communication has been excellent and calls / emails get returned promptly, even if to acknolwedge receipt and let the client know questions will be discussed internally first so the answers are more informed and collaborative. From the perspective of a customer who is not familair with Otero Signature Homes, it may be hard to differentiate the differences between Otero and Payne and Payne. This is an area that could use some improvement in order increase awareness and familairty among consumers in Northeast Ohio. Ted Otero and his team have a unique story to tell which provides advantages over the competition but may be unknown to consumers until they start working with the team.
Areas Of Satisfaction - Unlike other builders we contacted, Otero Signature Homes immediately told us they could satisfy all the items on our wish list and in the end they did.
Additional Comments - Otero Signature Homes are a great group of people to work with, top to bottom. Ted's experience and expertise is complimented by his wife, Kelly Otero, in her experience and expertise in design and fashion.
Additional Comments - They have made building from a different state so easy when we thought it would be difficult.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The design of my basement is fabulous.
Additional Comments - Otero was great!
