What Our Customers Say...

The daunting process of putting an addition on our home was made not only smooth, but exciting and enjoyable because of the team at Wright Builders. From the time we first called them, to the last punch list, each member of the team was professional, thorough, honest and nice to have around. Our large project was finished in the time span we were contracted for, and our budget was taken into careful consideration every step of the way. We love our home, and Wright Builders took many extra steps they did not need to take in order to create a great experience for us on this renovation journey. We recommend them wholeheartedly!

We chose Wright Builders because of their sterling reputation… we had high expectations but they were exceeded nonetheless. We are extremely pleased with our new sun room!

I was very  impressed with the way your various teams worked together, last week in particular. Let me also add that I have been impressed with your style, skill, and manner as project coordinator: While you (a WBI project manager) are personable and respectful to the individuals in each team, you are also effective, clear, and succinct in stating, or re-stating project goals, immediate tasks at hand, re-routing certain tasks. In all of this, you engender a team spirit, which - in my view - accounts for the very fine results you and your teams achieve in due course.

We are extremely pleased with how things have turned out here.  Having worked with Wright Builders before, we expected a great house and were not disappointed. The layout, airiness, quality of construction, attention to detail, and attention to the inevitable punch list are all excellent.  Perhaps even more pleasing, because unanticipated, is the quality of the surround and the community.  The old trees (planted mid-1800s?) in the park and the woods on the other side of the house are gorgeous.  The detention pond turned out to be a wildlife pond that has kept us out on our screen porch a good portion of summer evenings.  And the fact that all of us are new residents has added a lovely incentive to form and participate in a new community, with pot lucks, yoga in the park, and random encounters.  All in all, a great experience!

I can't say enough about the great location of Village Hill - it is just perfect.  Views of Mt. Tom, open space and beautiful old and new trees, historic architecture of the original buildings, variety in housing design, peaceful for walking and biking, wonderful neighbors, and only moments to downtown Northampton, easy access to I-91 and all the rest of the Pioneer Valley.  I can drive down the hill to Green Street for a morning latte at Vessel and be back in five minutes, unless I linger for a look at the Smith College horses on the way.

Re Eastview, I am thrilled with my condo.  Wright Builders' staff made the options selection process understandable and enjoyable.  Wright Builders and their contractors have been responsive to minor building issues promptly and always make me feel that they want me to be happy here.  The choice of siding, windows and doors, plantings, fencing, lighting and garage design all adds up to a most attractive townhouse community surrounding a lovely courtyard, set within the overall pleasing design of Village Hill. 

I can already appreciate the insulation in my townhouse when it stays warm and snug without turning on the heat when the temperature falls at night. I love the open layout and sunny interior of my townhouse and its lovely front porch and private patio with garden -- it has more than met my expectations for a wonderful new home.

We love our house so much, we wrote a poem:


There once was a builder named Wright

Who built houses strong and tight

He had an eye that was keen

On making them green

Much to the owners' delight!

As a journalist and environmental writer (A Passion for this Earth--essays on sense of place), I am pleased to be living in such a thoughtful, well-designed, well-built house in a diverse, inclusive community.

This is town planning at its best and it has attracted vibrant, creative people from all walks of life---musicians, doctors, educators, and people who work in the shops and services offered here in town.

The park, sidewalks and open spaces add to the sense of friendliness and encourage neighborhood gatherings.

The solar panels and green materials used in these homes are among the best.

These dwellings are tight in the winter, cool and comfortable in summer, while using minimal energy.

Then there is the natural beauty of Village Hill--biking and hiking trails, lovely vistas, two little green heron on the local drainage pond. The landscape is well maintained and the 200 year old beech trees and historic buildings that have been so beautifully rehabilitated add to its charm.

We are blessed, too, with the variety of birds and wildlife, and with a builder/designer who cares so much about this community, and about a high level of craftsmanship and general service, that he has made his own home here.

Kudos to Mass Development for selecting Wright Builders to develop this forward looking project.

I am sure this special enclave will become a model for other towns in the years ahead.

It is hard to choose where to begin, as there are so many aspects of living at Village Hill that make us happy. Our house is beautifully designed, with many thoughtful details and attractive features. It is also outstandingly well constructed by skilled practitioners using quality materials. The Wright Builders company employs responsive, capable, and kind staff. The few issues we had, inevitable in any brand-new house, were addressed quickly and competently. We have nothing but praise for Wright Builders, and feel extremely fortunate to be living here.

Besides the house itself, we are delighted with the overall layout and appearance of the entire Village Hill community. Over the past year, it has been amazing to watch the entire street fill up with beautiful homes occupied by congenial neighbors. We have lived in many lovely neighborhoods over the years, but Village Hill is by far the most friendly and compatible. I believe the remarkable combination of intelligent master design and outstanding construction have attracted a discerning clientele.

Well done, Wright Builders, and thank you!

Eighteen years ago we moved away from Northampton for family reasons but with the intention of returning. Finally, when beginning to look for a home again, we talked to Northampton friends who have lived here for years and are quite involved in the community. They suggested we investigate Village Hill, which they had watched take shape in its early phases and thought promising. Following up, we certainly were pleased with the variety of housing types, integration of business, eventual addition of an assisted-living facility, and proximity to the town center. Energy efficiency was a strong draw and we were so pleased to find the Eastview townhouses designed according to aesthetic traditions that appealed to us.

By the time we actually could initiate a purchase, most of the design and completion choices had been made but in a fashion we felt comfortable with and find wears well in use.

Since moving in this summer, our hopes have been proven out. Location is wonderful, the Village Hill neighborhood is wonderful, access to walking, biking, etc., is excellent, property management is excellent, the construction and mechanicals are solid and efficient and attractive. It's a new community that feels rooted and dynamic at once. What a bargain at anytime but especially now.

Thanks Mass Development for providing me with the opportunity to live in a top notch condo in Village Hill. It is a beautiful setting and a thoughtfully designed neighborhood. My condo is so well constructed and I love it. I am excited about my recently installed solar panels and improving the earth with my LEEDS certified energy efficient home! Northampton is a better city as a result of your plan for Village Hill and Wright Builders. Thanks so much!
