Character is the foundation stone upon which one must build to win respect. Just as no worthy building can be erected on a weak foundation, so no lasting reputation worthy of respect can be built on a weak character

To Whom It May Concern:

Building a home for the first time was a scary proposition for Walt and me. We were newly empty nesters and we rationalized that we should down size our life style. But part of us yearned for space, privacy and functionality. After 30 years of marriage and residing in 11 different homes from condos to single family, we were excited at the prospect of creating our dream home. A builder friend introduced us to Thom Oppelt and we immediately "bonded". Thom listened to every detail on our "wish list" and his creative suggestions were invaluable for those "blank stares" we gave him when we just didn't know what we wanted. Putting our past living experiences into one home was a challenge that Thom embraced and executed to our delight.

His unassuming manner, easy going personality and his professional talent blended into making our first home building experience a joy. He took the time to understand our lifestyle, listened to our ideas and never made us feel uncertain in our requests. He is a sensitive, caring "artist".sensitive to his clients needs not to his own ego.

We love our home and feel that we truly had a collaborative project with Thom. His talent is amazing and is evident by the unsolicited compliments we continue to receive and requests for his name from my own customers. As a real estate broker in a new community, I have had the pleasure of referring my customers to Thom. We would do another home with him "in a heart beat" and someday we will. His work is most evident throughout our community and I look forward to his continued success here and beyond.
