We chose J2 Santi to construct our new home in Western Springs in the spring of 2010. Our decision was based on their reputation for transparency, quality and collaboration. We were not disappointed. We tore down an older home and our new home was completed in exactly nine months from closing. The sub contractors were wonderful, the pricing was excellent and our new home is of the highest quality standard we envisioned. New home construction is, and has always been, an imperfect process requiring multiple inputs into every decision. Thus, whom you choose to partner with through this experience is all the more critical. With J2 Santi you do not partner with a company, you partner with Tony, Amy and an interactive team of subcontractors and suppliers, second to none. We hold J2 Santi in the highest regard, both as people and builders, and encourage anyone considering a home construction project to share our experience.

I would highly recommend J2Santi. They are easy to work with and have a very transparent process. The owners can see and control all costs. We had a relatively tight timeframe to complete the house and thanks to J2S the house was completed as planned. They have very strong subs and suppliers who were very responsive to J2S and to us. Quality was never an issue for any of the subs. J2S communicated with us on a regular and consistent basis to keep the process moving and to help us make good decisions. They contributed many ideas to improve the house and were extraordinarily helpful guiding us through the many decisions that were required during the process.

Working with j2 Santi was a complete pleasure. We built the home we have always wanted ahead of schedule and on budget. Amy and Tony are a great team and helped us from the inception of design through move in and even now to make sure that any issue or concern that we have is addressed.

Amy and Tony have been awesome and amazing. They started as our general contractors and finished as great friends. The Santis are always there when you need them and willing to help anyway they can. Their unique team approach makes sure everything is addressed and nothing is forgotten. Tony has the expertise in the details of construction and scheduling while Amy at organizing. She is also willing to help in design and decorating if you wish. She is your go-to when faced with a final decision. They are honest and straightforward so there are no hidden costs. Their contractors are the nicest people who are dedicated to quality work—the type of people you don’t mind having in your home at any time. Overall, it was a terrific experience with a finished home beyond all of our expectations.

It was a pleasure to work with Amy and Tony. They are great communicators and make building a custom home as seamless as possible. We really appreciate the transparent and straightforward approach that they use with respect to costs. We also really benefited from the excellent relationships that they maintain with all of their subcontractors. Whenever we hit s bump in the road – and that inevitably happens in every custom build – Amy and Tony were right there and always went the extra mile to make everything right and to make sure we were entirely confortable with the resolution.. We are so lucky to have found j2 Santi and would work together with Amy and Tony again in a heartbeat.
