Custom Home Building Testimonials
We're proud to make our clients
a home they can love.
In 2016 we looked extensively for a new home in Abbotsford that would suit our needs. We were delighted to find a suitable home built by Ridgepoint Homes in the Straiton area. When we first viewed the home we were impressed not only by the innovative yet practical floor plan but also by the quality of the construction. We have lived in our new home for over a year and continue to be very pleased with it. When minor problems arose with the house, Ken Friesen and his crew responded very politely and quickly with repairs. All of our contacts with Ridgepoint have been pleasant and very professional and we would highly recommend them to others wanting to build a new home.

We have been in our Ridgepoint Home coming up two years in September. We are both extremely happy in our home. If there were any questions or concerns that we had, Ken handled them in a very courteous and professional manner. It was a positive experience dealing with Ken, and we would recommend Ridgepoint Homes to any of our family or friends looking for a new homebuilder.

My wife and I are extremely happy with the level of quality and service we received from Ridgepoint Homes. They built our home with the quality of finish that can only be described as outstanding. Ken Friesen and his team have always been very courteous and acted professionally throughout the process. Ken has always been responsive and treated us like we were the only clients that mattered.

We purchased our new home from Ken & Ridgepoint Homes in Feb. 2016. We were attracted to the home when we first walked through it, thinking the design and craftsmanship were excellent. There is much more to purchasing a new home than first impressions. Prior to moving in, I had the home professionally inspected, the inspector said himself, "It would be a home I would purchase." Communication with Ken regarding any issues (nail pops in drywall, missed spots for painting), were always completed quickly to our satisfaction. 18 months later the quality still remains excellent, as it was when we moved in. I can say with utmost certainty that if I was building/purchasing another new home I would put Ken & Ridgepoint Homes at the top of the list.

I recently retired and my wife and I moved from Ontario back home to Abbotsford. My wife and I have purchased or built 8 new homes together across Canada. I am very pleased to advise that our recent new home purchase with Ken Friesen and RidgePoint homes was the most enjoyable and least stressful of them all. Much of the discussions and negotiations were done successfully long distance. We've learned that there are a number of components needed to make a new home purchase successful:
- Friendly Communication
- Honesty and Integrity
- Staying on Budget
- Completion Timing
- Building Plans/ Exterior elevations and floor plan layouts
- Quality Materials and Construction
- Dependable Sub Trades
- After Sales Service
- New Home Warranty follow up
I can honestly say that we are extremely happy with all aspects of the process. Ken and his team are true professionals. You can tell that the sub trades respect Ken as they went out of their way to follow up on our requests and make us happy. I was made to feel more as a friend rather than just a customer.
Building or buying a new home can be stressful as there are hundreds of details to deal with. I can honestly say Ken and Ridgepoint removed all the stress and made the whole experience most enjoyable.
I would certainly recommend Ridgepoint Homes to anyone searching for a quality new homebuilder. This will probably be our last new Home, but if we decide to do it one last time, we won't have to look very far. Thank you, Ken Friesen and Ridgepoint Homes for our new home. We are very proud Ridgepoint Home owners.

We have been in our wonderful Ridgepoint home for two years now and we could not be happier. Upon entering this home, we were immediately taken with the details, the quality of craftsmanship, and the overall feel of this home. Builder, Ken Friesen, spared nothing when creating this home and we feel truly blessed to have "stumbled" across this gem. We looked at other homes, but kept coming back to this one. After putting in an offer and having it accepted, Ken was nothing but helpful finishing and fixing small details. He is an amazing builder and the detail and forethought he puts in is evident in every room and closet! Thank you for giving us our dream home!

Dealing with Ken Friesen of Ridgepoint Homes has been positive from the very beginning.
When we were looking for a new home we came upon our house in the framing stage. We had a number of questions regarding the design and construction of the home and Ken answered all of our questions in an open and honest manner.
When we were making decisions regarding the options of the house, Ken was very helpful in assisting us in making choices to fit the design and ensured us he would make it happen as we wanted it to be.
The house was completed on time and to our complete satisfaction. Once we moved into our new home a few minor issues were found, and Ken had these taken care of immediately.
Overall, we have found our home to be very well built, with excellent attention to detail, and are very satisfied with our new home as well as Ridgepoint Homes.

From start to finish every aspect of our new house has met or exceeded our expectations. Any concerns were dealt with immediately and in a professional manner. We thoroughly enjoy our home. We have no problems at all recommending Ridgepoint Homes.
~ Randy and Patricia Trainor
We have been in our new Ridgepoint home for over a year now and we couldn’t be happier. The design, layout and build quality of the home is excellent. We think that we have the nicest and most attractive home in the development. The quality of materials used throughout is of very high quality, designed to last many years. The house is well insulated, as we found out during this past winter and through the hot days of summer, which makes it easy to keep the interior at a uniform temperature.
Dealing with Ken, has been a positive experience throughout the process. It was a real pleasure to be working with a reputable and honest builder!
~ Hans and Margitta
Our experience with Ken Friesen and Ridgepoint Homes has been excellent. It is evident that Ken takes great pride in building a quality home and he does his best to meet the needs of the buyer. Ken and crew are personable and professional. Furthermore, Ken has made himself readily available to deal with any of our inquiries, even a year into owning our home. We couldn’t be more satisfied.
We love our home and if we ever build again, we will definitely contact Ken.

We’ve been in our Ridgepoint home now for almost a month and we are very happy with it. Our long home search in Abbotsford certainly paid off when we found this one.
The combination of wood, vinyl, and stone on the outside gives it considerable curb appeal. The materials and styling also project an image of strength and sturdiness. This is evident on the inside as well. The quality of the materials is top notch.
Everything in this house– the floors, the closets, the door knobs, the cupboards, the faucets– feels like it was built to last generations, a refreshing sign in this age of mass-produced housing. It was evident that we were dealing with a custom builder. Obviously, location and build quality were important to us. During the building process, Ken and his team were extremely accommodating in showing us around and explaining the various features of the home. Soft touch cabinets, tamper-resistant receptacles, ethernet ports, and pre-wiring for patio speakers and security are just a few. But we also wanted a home that would still look new for years to come. The choice of materials and finishes in the home will accomplish this by delicately balancing modern styling and classic looks in a way that will stand the test of time.
We’re certainly happy with our Ridgepoint home. The styling, build quality, and layout were precisely what we were looking for. I’d be a liar if I said I wasn’t looking forward to entertaining others at our first house-warming party.
