What Our Customers Say


“We first learned about McCreary Homes from a satisfied client. LJ McCreary has subsequently built two homes for us in Tucson. We never gave consideration to using another contractor when it came to our second home, due to our tremendous satisfaction with the performance of McCreary Homes on the first project. Throughout both of our projects we were always kept in the communications loop…no surprises, and the realistic budget process came in very close to our initial expectations. We would not hesitate to use LJ to build our third home!”

– Barbara Provus and Fred Wackerle


“Mr. McCreary is one of the most outstanding contractors I have had the pleasure to work with. His construction quality is top notch and the end result is a showcase worthy of any high end owner.”

– John McAfee


“Our building experience with LJ McCreary was exceptional!! LJ’s many years of experience shows throughout the project. His overall knowledge, problem solving and service revealed a depth that only an experienced builder would have. He stays in touch throughout the project and communicates well with every detail of the build. This was the second home that LJ has built for us and the quality of our home is a showcase. I would highly recommend LJ McCreary for your next building project if you want experience, quality and personal attention to your home. We are pleased beyond our expectations with the quality and professionalism of McCreary Homes but most of all the sincerity of LJ. It was a fun project that was a joy to experience!! Let’s do it again!!”

– Sandy and Scott Tyson


“We were recommended to look into McCreary Homes by our realtor.

From the beginning to the end of the building process, our experience with LJ and McCreary Homes was excellent – LJ is such a good problem solver that he really made the building process smooth. LJ even helped us evaluate a couple of lots that helped us decide on the one we eventually purchased.

The best thing about working with McCreary Homes was the customer service. LJ always returned calls and came back with information as requested. I was never worried during the process. Overall, the entire experience was nearly completely stress-free, within budget and the quality of our home was very good.

During the building process, LJ McCreary was always available and willing to correct any problems that came up. As mentioned above he is an excellent problem solver and works it so that everyone is satisfied. We had one problem where he clearly made a mistake, but it could easily have been overlooked. Instead, not only did he bring the problem to our attention, but he then fixed it without a complaint although it cost quite a bit of money.

I would like to emphasize that LJ is very reliable and always available. These traits would make him an excellent choice for a builder, especially for people that are building homes from outside of Tucson and really need to rely on their builder.

LJ McCreary and McCreary Homes was an excellent partner from the very beginning. Despite bringing him in before we even bought the lot, we never felt that he was adding extra money into the project. We never bid out the work but had complete confidence we were getting good value with LJ. We would recommend that anyone bring LJ on board before the architect is selected as he really helped us during the design stage.”

– Pat and Lisa Turner


“Allie and I are very happy to have the chance to say how pleased and satisfied we are with the house you built for us. The house is going on nine years old and we have never had floor cracks, wall cracks, ceiling cracks, twisted beams or any of the things we observe in other houses. The 48″ front door stills swings easily. I hope you are busy, doing well, and building houses like this for many others. You are absolutely a credit to the building profession.”

– Best regards, Allie and Jim Wittenberg


“Pam and I wish to express our deepest thanks and appreciation for the beautiful two story addition to our Tucson home which McCreary Homes recently completed. The quality of the workmanship was in keeping with your promises. You fulfilled our expectations by leaving nothing to chance in the planning, preparation and performance. The professional manner that you and your staff demonstrated made the entire building experience less than stressful for us, particularly since we were usually at our Wisconsin home during most of the process. It was certainly reassuring to know that we could reach you by telephone at nearly every hour. We appreciated the willingness you exhibited to always be available to discuss those changes, options and adjustments which always are present in the construction process.”É “Obviously, this letter is intended to demonstrate our satisfaction and to unequivocally recommend your company to anyone who is planning to build a home.”

– Sincerely, John J. Carter


“From the beginning to the end the experience of working with the McCreary team was very positive. L.J. McCreary helped us locate a new building site when we needed one Ð no small task. Jerry Seybert, construction manager, was extraordinary. He was patient working through changes, additions, etc. with good humor. His attention to detail and his demand for excellence on the job was greatly appreciated. He kept his subs lined up and the job was seldom delayed because of “no shows”.

McCreary Homes was highly recommended to us when we were looking for a builder in 2000. It is with great enthusiasm that we pass on this same recommendation, adding our praise.”

– Thank you McCreary Homes! Peter and Reyn Voevodsky

“L.J. McCreary of McCreary Homes has built three extraordinary homes for us that total over 12,000 square feet of construction. They are well built with quality materials and constructed to our liking. Their resale value has proven to be a good investment.”

– Sincerely, JoAnn and Ed Hill (enjoying their 3rd McCreary Home)


“The workmanship, quality of construction and the attention to detail in my home is outstanding. All of that coupled with the architectural design have gone a long way to making this the house I want to spend the next 20 years in. I should also tell you that three months after I bought the property, I turned down an offer of twice what I paid for the house. If your other homes appreciate even 1/10th of what mine has done, you should be very happy.”

– Sincerely, Bruce R. B. DuPont


“As you know, we screened 14 custom builders prior to selecting your companyÉWe appreciate the coordination during the design and construction with my wife and I being in ChicagoÉWe are absolutely elated with our new home and we brag about it every chance we get!”

– Sincerely, Jerry and Sandy DeGrazia


“I would like to speak to my belief of the credibility of L.J. McCreary (McCreary Homes), whom I have known and respected for years, not only as a friend, but as a very respected Tucson Home Builder. L.J. and his wife Denise have been involved in building homes for my friends and family. These homes are of the highest quality and have many satisfied homeowners living in them.”

– Judy Lowe
COO, Realty Executives Southern Arizona


“…In fact friends of ours who had built homes told us to expect a difficult and frustrating experience with the effort. We have not had such an experience and I’m sure your team has been the difference in making it a rewarding effort. Thank you for a job well done.”

– Best personal regards, Kenneth W. Mills, Jr.


“L.J. was able to capture our dream of a home that is warm and comfortable that we can really enjoy raising our family in. We never expected the kind of partnership we had with our builder in creating our new home. L.J. was committed to taking care of all the details as you would expect from a fine custom home builder, but he went far beyond that to do everything he could to ensure that we were taken care of in the process of building our home.”

– Sincerely, Steven P. Sherick


“This was our first experience building a custom home. A friend recently asked us if we would ever build again. We both replied “yes, tomorrow, and with LJ as the builder.”

– Rosey and Monty DeWitt


“Our open house on November 7 was largely attended and the talk continually focused on the attention to detail and warmth on an exciting visual home. Again, thanks for Ð our home.”

– Ruth and Larry Ivy


“…building the home we did and choosing you as the builder were both two good decisions. Being type ‘A’, worry-about and track-everything people, it’s surprising that we were tolerated during those few months. Éwe would have to say the final product turned out very nice for us.”

– With much thanks, The Murray’s


“You handled all of the modifications I requested easily and at a reasonable cost. Your adherence to the promised completion date was also greatly appreciated.”

– Sincerely, John Chase


“The whole building experience went much smoother than we ever anticipated and we have been very pleased with your service after construction as well.”
