Everything about our experience was incredibly transparent, honest, professional and extremely high quality.
The plan laid out in the beginning by Chris was exactly how the project progressed and there was significant consistency in the quality of people every time we would deal with another RM person
We have a better appreciation for high quality work and materials following this project - previous work by others was good, but this is a different level
Risher Martin took the stress out of a very stressful experience, building a new home. They made the process as easy as possible with their expertise and clear communication. I would do the process all over again in heart beat with Risher Martin.
After vetting 7 contractors for our large remodel with new construction project, RischerMartin was the obvious choice. They are extremely friendly, proactive, organized, respectful, and take on my wants and needs as their own. I felt like the Project Manager was in my court throughout the process. If something happened beyond their control, they made sure it was resolved and rectified better than I needed in the first place. They were completely transparent in their budgeting and communicated with me about anything we needed at the drop of a hat. After working on a few large construction projects in the past that became nightmare scenarios, I had lost faith in contractors in general. RischerMartin transcended the old way of building homes, and gave me faith in the process again. I can easily give my highest recommend for them.

I am in the business of Land Development and Home Building abroad, and the professionalism of Risher Martin is the best I have ever experienced. I am a firm believer of having a set price, it makes all the decisions that much simpler. When changes are made, you are presented with a new budget for the change and it makes it simpler to keep making decisions.
The experience with RisherMartin exceeded all of my expectations. When I tell people that we were on budget and on time they are astounded. More importantly the quality of the work that they do is outstanding. Great attention to detail and always professional. Our new neighbors go out of their way to compliment RisherMartin for their professional approach and care for creating a positive, clean environment. RisherMartin are transforming the construction industry. Thank you Jeremy, Chris, Dan!!!!
RisherMartin took a very well-organized approach to planning our remodeling project, and demonstrated a lot of knowledge and expertise. The staff and our site supervisor were quite professional, and we always enjoyed working with them. We are very happy with the results of their work.
Risher Martin was professional and demanding of high quality materials, workmanship and timeliness. They could be depended upon to work without supervision yet refer questions as needed and to report progress
Extraordinary construction team. A true client-architect-contractor partnership, with RM helping us all achieve the results we envisioned. We are immensely pleased with our new home. Quality of work, precision, exceptional communications. RM's professionalism, process, and the personal responsibility each employee gives a project yielded zero surprises. Completed on time despite 29 days of Austin monsoons. We are impressed by every member of the RM team. They are totally focused on "our" project -- making it the best possible, for as high a value as can be achieved. They have a spirit, a pride that is rare in any industry. Always going the extra mile, with a smile. A+!
From day one, their paperless, carefully designed processes -- and employees who all get it -- yielded a wonderful experience for the clients. From Jeremy and Chris and Talley to front office to newest in-the-field employee; they were totaled in sync.
Outstanding continuous, concise, focused communications. Result: zero [negative] surprises.
It will be done! Every time. Jeremy and Talley never forgot a priority promise. Could almost set your watch by their follow through.
Total confidence in the real world experience and forecasting of RM team. Their long-term relationships with subs is essential.
Talley kept subs focused on quality, and meeting expectations of we the clients. Did not let anyone slide; if they did they corrected.
Totally impressive given various monsoons during construction. Making the original schedule is virtually unheard of in Austin these days. Seasoned clients were as impressed as were we by this attribute.
James it exceptional. A consummate pro. Totally genuine. Knows Austin subs, city inspectors, suppliers inside and out...their needs, timelines. Never flustered. Utterly polite. Highly respectful of all and thus others are eager to "help" him.
Absolutely, which by the way is one of the most frequently spoken responses from Talley. He always is thinking three or fours steps ahead of clients -- anticipates our needs, preferences. How to adjust as needed, and provide an even better result. His communications skills are very strong and that too yields best possible outcomes. The world needs more Talleys.
Definitely. Especially impressed with the cabinet/site carpenters (constructors of the moveable wall!), head framing carpenter, electricians, offsite cabinet fabricators, soapstone team, precision of the tile installer. Never met the concrete floor sub but they did a superb job.
Quality of work, precision, exceptional communications. Jeremy and Talley gave us 100% throughout the entire process! Their ingenuity, and personal creativity in helping us design special awnings, installing an uncommon ceiling lift, etc. Helping us make a wise decision to add metal roofing into the scope, at a critical moment, with short time horizon. Jeremy's deep digging and sourcing of such systems.RM's professionalism, process, and the personal responsibility each employee gives a project yields zero surprises. Completed ontime despite 29 days of Austin monsoons. We are impressed by every member of the RM team.

RisherMartin was very professional and detail oriented throughout our construction. We typically knew what to expect each week from our scheduled weekly meetings. They are excellent at communicating and James was wonderful to work with and extremely polite and professional. He definitely goes the extra mile. I would recommend RM if you are looking to do a remodel. We lived in our home during construction and it wasn't nearly as invasive as one would think. A+ to the entire team. We are thrilled with the end result.
Follow up with on going communication
Professional, timely, courteous
dealing with really fine people
Risher-Martin was great in every way. They did quality work, at the price quoted, and on the schedule proposed. I would go to them for any future construction needs, and would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family (and I already have).
After RisherMartin did our kitchen/master bath remodel almost 4 years ago, I said I would never let anyone build a house for us except them. Having now spent many, many months together selecting a lot, designing a home, and building it from the ground up, I would still never let anyone else build a house for us. Their knowledge is vast and their experience speaks for itself, but what really sets them apart is their customer service. Not a week went by when we did not personally meet with Jeremy and/or another member of the RisherMartin team. When problems arose, as they always do, we never doubted that Jeremy was on top of it and would have it resolved as quickly and effectively as possible. We were so grateful to have such a terrific team behind us throughout this process.
I never had any doubt that something would get done when Jeremy said it would get done.
We were satisfied with our experience from start to finish. We very much appreciated Jeremy's help when we were selecting our lot, as well as Chris's help with design and budget during the planning phase. Then Jeremy was with us every step of the way during construction, and we were grateful for his knowledge and experience. James Talley came in toward the end of the project and saw it through to completion, and he did a nice job, as did James Golden. We like a lot of opinions when we are making selections, and everyone was very helpful in offering suggestions and comments when we asked for them along the way.
I have really high expectations and honestly believe they were all met. We understand that problems arise during custom home building, and we were not expecting a perfect process. But everything was handled quickly and professionally.
I was most satisfied with the quality of the work and that everyone was very accessible when I had questions
Jeremy was a pleasure to deal with and helped immensely in the process of getting the deal completed with the architect and the bank. The project would never have even started without his advice and dedication.
We have been in our custom built home for over a year and are still impressed with the quality of the construction.
They went above and beyond to stick to our schedule
I have already recommended Risher Martin to a few friends and will continue to do so.
Jeremy and Chris did an outstanding job of guiding us through this process. They painted a realistic picture of what to expect and met our expectations. I also was very impressed with Sam. She was thorough, professional and always replied to emails or calls promptly.
I was most satisfied with RisherMartin Fine Homes' expertise and solving of issues.
I was most satisfied with the timeliness and attention to detail.
I was very pleased with how the schedule was managed. The weekly meetings were helpful for addressing any issues or questions.
RisherMartin met and exceeded my expectations for a builder.
They do high quality work, pay close attention to detail, and work to make sure that we were happy with the end result. If there was ever a question about how something should be done, they were very flexible in offering options and responding to our concerns.
Every scheduled event was completed on or ahead of time even with some changes we had to add to the project. Our move back in to our remodeled house was actually ahead of schedule.
James found hidden issues with our house and offered us viable options to solve the problems within our budget. I talked with James on essentially a daily basis, many times because he had something he needed to show me. All issues I brought to his attention were resolved, usually within one day.
The planning, schedule and budget were handled in the most professional manner. James' oversight of the project was excellent.
If I could give James Golden fives instead of fours I would do it. Even now - almost a year after the start of my project he's still helping me resolve issues.
Risher Martin tackled our very complex project in such a thourough way. They are the best there is!
They did beautiful work in an amazingly short time frame and were always a joy to work with.
