If you plan on buying a home and building it, I highly recommend Abele Builders. My wife and I had searched all over the Clifton Park/Halfmoon/Saratoga region for our next home and after all was said and done, there is no one better. I encourage you to shop around and see what’s out there–and you will end up with Abele Builders. Right from the first day we visited the model home in Glen Meadows, we were treated like family. I know that may sound a little unrealistic but it is the truth. There was no pressure and they answered all our questions quickly and honestly. The entire staff from Chris, Phyllis, Sue, Dee, Dan and Dave all made the entire process as easy as can be. You will complete the entire process of building your home right in their office. You aren’t sent out to other companies to make any selections – all of your flooring, granite, tile and siding selections are done in their Design Center and they include an abundance of standard features. The quality of craftsmanship and work is fantastic. The people that work for Abele Builders (contractors) are polite, friendly and always willing to assist if needed. So if you’re in the market for new construction and want an exceptional builder, please give Abele Builders a chance.
