“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 recently built our 3rd home. This time with Parent Custom Homes and it was the best, most fun experience you could imagine. With Parent Custom Homes, you aren’t just another project. They take the time and give you true personal service. You usually work directly with the builder which is amazing because there is no middle man. The designer is an amazing help, the subs are top notch. Not only did we build our dream home, I feel like we became friends along the way.”


Troy and Alana


These are the words that come to mind when we proudly tell others about Parent Custom Homes.  Choosing Parent Custom Homes to build our home was one of the best decisions that we ever made – Brent and his Team have absolutely knocked it out of the park with the craftsmanship and attention to detail.  We interviewed several builders before making the perfect choice to have Brent build our home.  Brent’s Team set the bar for quality and ethics, and surpassed it at every step!  Their ability to help us visualize our dream home and their commitment to fulfilling our dream exceeded all of our expectations. If we ever build another home – it will definitely be Parent Custom Homes!”

Bursell Home

"Thank you for building our dream home. We love our house so much and can't wait to spend the next 20 - 30 years in this beautiful home. It was a pleasure working with you and your team and thank you for all of your hard work and making this home building process a wonderful memory."

The Bursell 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

“While home searching and looking through various models from numerous builders, my wife and I came upon a Parent Custom Home in Champlin.  We both immediately knew it was the type and quality of home we wanted!  It stood out with all the quality finishes, craftsmanship, and lay-out. With the help of Brent Parent, we were fortunate to land us our dream home!  He has been nothing but accommodating, an absolute pleasure to be associated with, and purchase a home from since the beginning. He has done things to benefit us that no would expect from a builder.  If we have questions or want suggestions Brent is always willing to listen and promptly assist us. He handles himself very professionally, has a great sense of humor and listens before speaking. For five years now we have thoroughly enjoyed our Parent Custom home.  Each fall and spring we do the Parade of Homes and hands done the Parent Custom Homes models are always our favorite!! It is was pleasure that we highly recommend you consider a Parent Custom Home in a Minnesota minute!”

“With intentions to update our property, we began working with a remodeling company to make our 1950’s ranch style house a better fit our needs. Through numerous discussions and set backs with the first company, we eventually reached out to Brent Parent for advice about moving forward with either remodeling the space or moving in a new direction all together. Working with multiple lot easements and many revisions on the original design plan with the first company, we deicded that it would make more design and  financial sense to demolish the existing home and create a new one. We made our very best decision when we hired Parent Custom Homes. Brent listened to our hopes…plans were drawn, timelines were met and things fell into place.  The plans and the budget added up to new construction and it was still a tough decision emotionally to tear down our old home. A demo party marked the beginning of a new chapter and that party is now a favorite family memory. The spray paint, sledge hammers, and hard hats marking the way forward. Brent and Kristi were there with us to welcome the next phase. Brent is thorough, honest and kind. He has an incredible team and together they build beautiful homes. We cannot thank you enough for your honest advise and incredible work ethic. Thank you for helping us to sort through the process and for turning our dreams into reality. We love our home.

Andrew and Nicole Moffitt

“My wife and I were looking to build our dream home on land we owned. My wife was actively touring homes during the Parade of Homes in Minneapolis for several years but never really felt comfortable with any of the builders or representative that were showing the homes, until she met Brent Parent. He made her feel very comfortable and was open to all her questions involved in the building process. Brent was willing to look at our land and recommend the best type of home to build on it. Since my wife had a vision on what she wanted in her new home, Brent referred us to an architect to design our new home using Heidi’s book of pictures she had collected over the years. Parent Custom Homes is a proven builder in the area. They have assembled a fantastic group of tradesmen/women to build quality homes at every phase of the build…Then, their finish carpenters are amazing! Their attention to detail in the final finish woodworking phase was impeccable. We have received many positive complimenets from visitors to the home on the quality and finish work. Brent was also willing to allow me to do the landscaping work as part of the build…Brent and his team delivered the home in the exact week he had forecasted 6 months in advance, even with weather impacts during the exernal phase. If you are looking for a high quality home, don’t hesitate to meet with Brent to start your building journey.”

The Russ Brinkman Family

“We looked all over for the right area and stumbled across property that Parent Custom Homes had. We’d heard good things, so it seemed like a great fit. Brent and everyone were great throughout the whole process, answering questions and giving us an accurate accounting along the way. No hidden fees or extras…unless we asked for them! They truly had patience and understanding as we made our decisions. We’d highly recommend them to anyone who wants to build or purchase a house.”

Bill and Kathy Fields

“Brook Parent told us that Parent Custom Homes seeks to make building a home the best possible experience it can be.  It succeeded! He understands the major financial and very personal investment a home is for the buyer and treats it as such. From working on our original design to the final walk through, Brook was always available to answer our questions.  Jason and Ringo as foremen were always immediately responsive to ensure our home was coming together as we wanted. Kathie guided us through major decorating decisions, so that our tastes and lifestyle were reflected in the home.  Nick is a creative and craftsman genius. Our cabinetry could not be more beautiful. All subcontractors were polite, timely and efficient in their work. Having lived here nearly a year now, we still wake up each day full of gratitude for our beautiful home by Parent Custom Homes.”

Doug and Sharon Sill

"After waiting nearly 40 years to build our dream home, we needed to find a builder who shared our vision and who we could trust.   We chose Brent because we felt he understood what we wanted, had great ideas on how to get there, always focused on quality and was really fun to work with.   Brent’s design and build process made decisions easy for us and he and his team kept us in the loop as the house progressed.  Brent’s subcontractors all did outstanding work with a strong focus on quality and the highest craftsmanship.  Several of them suggested minor changes that resulted in major improvements in the final product.  The end result was an incredibly well built house that exceeded our expectations across the board. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of builders and the dream home that Brent built for us."

Jay and Dianne Heath

"Our first couple nights 'at home' were amazing.  We feel like we are on vacation but we have to keep reminding ourselves that this is home!!  It is like a dream.   Thank you for all your expertise, hard work, and dedication to help others build their dream homes.  We truly cannot thank you enough.  When we started on this path of building I was stressed out just thinking about it and you made it so stress free that it was unbelievable."
