"Our experience with Gail, Mance and Son residential developers, was and continue to be exceptional! They are true professionals that care about quality, service, detail and the final product."

"We love our new home! From the quality materials to the attention to detail, we couldn't be happier. Mance & Son went out of their way to make everything perfect. "
Faith Anderson, Esq.

We have had the pleasure of working with Mance & Son twice over the last 12 years and we have been delighted with the outcome both times. We are impressed with the quality of the workmanship and have been grateful for the input and support of both Gail & John through the entire process. Their integrity in all their dealings with us has been a huge blessing and a great load off of our minds.

We loved our first home and would have stayed there forever had it not become clear to us that we needed to have a home that was more accessible to Mike, who is an amputee. There was no doubt in our mind who we wanted to work with the second time around so we contacted Gail Mance from Van Dorm Realty as we knew she was the agent for Mance & Son. Gail was a godsend! She coordinated all the necessary things that had to be done to sell the first home and she was our contact throughout the process of building the second home. Gail was always available and attentive to any concerns we might have had. Both Gail & John have been extremely responsive to all of our needs and made the process a very enjoyable one. In the design phase of the second home John had suggestions along the way that have made our home both more accessible for Mike and a joy to behold!

In short the entire process was truly fun for us and we are delighted with the results! We valued the quality of workmanship, the attention to detail and the consideration of our particular needs throughout the experience. Gail & John have been excellent people to work with and they made our home building experience fun & exciting, the way it should be.

"We have had the pleasure of purchasing a home from Mance & Son on a casual drop in at a Mance Open House. We immediately recognized that the home in Northpointe at Tolmie was a very good value of construction, home placement, Mance community development and all at a very fair price. We called and met John Mance on site that day and bought the house.
And, we were not even in the market to buy a house.

Service after the sale was as good as the purchase experience, and we have since bought and sold 2-additional homes from Gail Mance, and each time felt we received service above and beyond all our expectations. We hope you enjoy your Mance home as much as we have."
Don & Willa Kollmansberger

"When we decided to relocate to Washington, we researched possible living areas very carefully. We heard about Mance and Son from a resident of Deerfield Park. Our initial communication with Gail was very encouraging. This being our first ever experience with a custom builder, we were eager to find someone who cared about our concerns in building our "dream house."

John and Gail were extremely helpful throughout the process. We have no doubt that ours is a quality home reflecting the contributions of carefully selected subcontractors who themselves have nothing but praise for the Mances. It was comforting to know that the Mances were always there to supervise and were responsive to our needs. We felt "like family!" They're the best!"

This thank you is long overdue. We love our home and are so grateful for the quality and care you showed while building our home and meeting our special needs.

While the thought of building a home was exciting, it was also very intimidating but we had a need for an accessible home and building seemed our only option. What we found in Mance & Son is a reputable builder with whom we quickly found to be dependable, trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. John, Garrett and Gail provided just the right amount of advice, expertise and creativity. They worked with us to transform the house plan we chose into an accessible home, but did so without sacrificing beauty. You wouldn’t know that our home is any different from any of their other beautiful creations. But it doesn’t stop there… they have an outstanding group of sub-contractors who share their desire to build a home that you’ll love and appreciate.

While building a community, they’ve taken the time to make each home unique and make each family feel special. They were always available to answer our questions, no matter how frequently we dropped in! Their dedication to quality and detail is apparent in each home and doesn’t end when you’ve moved in. Even the most minor concern was addressed quickly and professionally. We’ll definitely continue to recommended Mance & Son at Hawley Hills and beyond!

Many thanks!

Todd and Donna
