"Forte Homes are made of the best quality and most beautiful and unique architectural techniques. The ambiance, the design, and the customer service are second to none! Michael Blue is so patient as he guides each client through their dreams and make them into realities. The leadership of John and John, the owners, is seen in the culture of the office.

Joel J.

"The manner in which you stand by your work and product is absolutely second to none. I have been involved in real estate and construction lending for over 15 years, and have worked with several home builders and custom home builders.

In my years of dealing with home builders, the experience with Forte Homes and Bob Hicks was far and away the single-most impressive handling of a construction related issue that I have ever seen. You stood behind your work, fixed the problem, and did so very quickly without any hesitation."


Scott G. - Arcadia/Paradise Valley

"I appreciate their discipline, attention to detail in the planning stage and accuracy in budgeting without overcharging – very attractive to me. John and John both have advantages as engineers to support the current technologies in today’s high tech offerings."
