Tom & Joan Van Sloun

“Parent Custom Homes made our dream home a reality! From the moment we met Brook, we had full trust in him. He communicated every step of the process while always keeping our best interest at heart. His organization, professionalism and attention to detail is as seamless as our enameled millwork! We couldn’t be more pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of our forever home.”

The Hoang Family

“Working with Parent Custom Homes was truly a customized experience. From Day One we had a say in the entire build from the design to the finishes and everything in between. We were gently guided when needed but allowed to be as creative (or crazy!) as we wanted. Brook took our ideas, ran with them, and improved upon them. Parent’s attention to detail can be seen throughout the entire house. The result was better than we ever imagined, and we are forever grateful to Parent Custom Homes for helping us bring our dream to fruition.”
Steve Kucera Family

“We were living on the West Coast and knew we wanted to move back to Minnesota.  Moving a family halfway across the U.S. is a daunting effort, let alone having to choose a builder.  We had purchased houses in the past but had never built a home.  We were concerned about building after hearing what some people have gone through.  We had many questions and lots of custom-build requirements.  Brent Parent and his team were very thorough and patient as he answered all our questions and helped us design the home we wanted…Anytime a concern was raised, he would address it and make sure we were satisfied with the resolution.  He made the process much easier than we anticipated.  We would definitely build again, but only with Parent Custom Homes.  Because of the build quality and attention to detail, we’ve had many compliments on our home and we couldn’t be happier with it.”

Sonny and Tricha

“We are overjoyed with our new home and glad we chose Parent Custom Homes. Their attention to detail is second to none. They truly listened to all of our thoughts and desires AND delivered us the house of our dreams. We couldn’t be happier.”
