A BRIEF HISTORY OF WINFIELD HOMES

Just over 20 years ago, founders Scott Swick and Jim Baudry dreamed of a starting a new kind of homebuilding company, one that overcame the prevalent reputation of builders with cost overruns, missed deadlines, panicky last-minute selections, and damaged relationships with their customers. They dedicated themselves to the timeless principles of integrity, of doing what you say you’re going to do, and creating relationships of trust.

 

Recently Jason Zellner joined Winfield Homes as a Partner, bringing almost 20 excellent years of construction and real estate experience. His youth guarantees Winfield Homes a long future serving their clients.

 

Since inception, Winfield Homes has consistently provided exceptional design/build services to build beautiful high-performance homes for families throughout the Fox Valley and Metropolitan Milwaukee area.

 

Rather than aiming for high volume, the owners focus on building not only extraordinary homes, but such extraordinary building experiences that their clients would want to do it all over again!


WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US

These are our promises to you!

Uncompromising Integrity

As men of faith, we pledge to always be honest and do what we say we are going to do. Our focus is on building relationships of trust to give you full peace of mind throughout the entire process. We are always reminded of what home really means to us and the families we serve. We guarantee our pricing so there are no unexpected cost overruns. We believe "friends stay friends when things are in writing" so all change orders are written and signed. As evidence, we have carried an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau every year.

Incomparable Quality

Our exacting attention to design detail and our consistent on-site construction oversight help create a home that embodies the highest standards for quality. We exceed the NAHB Construction Performance Guidelines, Green Built Home Guidelines, Focus on Energy Guidelines, and local building code. As a result, we offer the most generous Warranty in the industry: a Limited 10-year Warranty (10 year structural, 2 year mechanical, 1 year remainder).

Custom Design

We start by listening to you. Rather than being forced to compromise your lifestyle to fit a builder's home plan, we create a custom home designed just for the way you live and the amenities you desire. You will work with a professional home designer who can blend both form and function, rather than working with a lumber yard's CAD technician. And our Interior Designer will help you make every selection in- and out-side your home. We can make YOUR home be as beautiful as a Parade Home!

Meaningful Savings and Sustainability

One of our best tools as designers is knowing what things cost. As a result, we can save you significant money by designing your new home to meet your budget the first time. With our intense focus on sustainability, your home will save you 30% or more in utility bills than a home built to current building code, be more healthy and comfortable, and be better for our environment. As evidence, your home will be tested by 3rd party inspectors for the Focus on Energy, Green Built Home, and RESNET programs, and you will receive a certificate as proof.

YOUR HOME DESIGNER/BUILDERS: A PROFESSIONAL APPROACH

After completing a Masters Degree from the University of Wisconsin, Scott Swick joined a national firm designing and building commercial buildings and interiors, leading the largest design staff in Wisconsin.

 

With powerhouse clients such as McDonald’s and Harley-Davidson, Scott knew he needed a highly qualified construction manager in Jim Baudry to head up the construction operations. These clients demanded a level of excellence and best practices that really helped define what great customer service is all about.

 

So when Jim and Scott decided to take that level of design/build service to their own business of building homes, they settled on Scott’s middle name, Winfield, in honor of his relative Captain Winfield Scott, the founder of Scottsdale, Arizona in 1888. Winfield Homes was born!

 

Recently Jason Zellner joined Winfield Homes as a partner. Having grown up in a hard-working farm family, Jason brings almost 20 years of residential and commercial construction experience in both new and remodeling, in addition to being a top real estate producer.  Jason knows how to make sure your home is designed for future marketability.

 

The partners are joined by Amy Priessnitz (Selections Coordinator), Mary Senn (Job Cost Accounting), and Tom Holzman (Job Site Supervisor). By the time you move into your new Winfield home, you will join the hundreds of families who say that it was so enjoyable they would do it all over again!
