"It is hard to believe that it is almost one year since we made the decision to move to Antigo.  Our first introduction to Bolen Realty was a response to a message that we left on your answering machine requesting information about housing in Antigo.  The response was timely, to the point and helpful.  Appropriate follow-up calls were made as we were trying to sell our home in Athens before we were willing to buy a new home.   It added comfort to us that help was available when we were ready to make a decision.

You were one of the first calls we made after our home sold. Unfortunately, even though it took a long time to sell our home, we needed to move out in a short time if we were going to close the deal. You understood our need for housing on a specific date, the budget we had allocated for housing, and the features we were looking for in a home. You provided a complete building contract that outlined in detail exactly what we were getting and when. You then completed the project on time exactly to the specifications. Simple as
that.

As the project progressed, you kept us informed, used good common sense to deal with those little bumps, as all projects have to keep it on schedule with out compromising the end project As you know this was our third home that we built. While all of the projects went well, the individual attention you gave us during the project was beyond our highest
expectations.

We our very proud of the home that you built us, and invite anyone who is considering building with Bolen Homes to call your very satisfied customers. As you know I have the opportunity to work with your staff on a daily basis. You should be very proud of the team you have put together." ...P. G.


"We wanted to take this opportunity at the first Christmas in our new home to thank you for all your assistance from start to finish helping us get our new home completed. Your
attention to details and patience when we incorporated changes made this almost enjoyable. We heard all the stories about how difficult it is planning and building a new home.

The job started on time and you hit the target completion date. All the sub-contractors were helpful, courteous, professional and on time. Scheduling all the subs and getting the job coordinated must be difficult. You must have a good relationship with the subs.

We've been working on the final details to make the transition from a house to a home. We appreciate all the follow up help you've offered. You've assisted greatly in tying up some
loose ends. Having a general contractor handle most of the details is the only way to go. I can't understand how anyone would try to do all this work on their own.

We're very pleased with the final product We've had many compliments on our new home and we would recommend your services to anyone.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas!" ...R. O.


"Rev. Omar Kelley is settling into his new home on Antigo’s northwest side, and couldn’t he happier.

Earlier this year the retired pastor commissioned Bolen Custom Homes to build the residence for his Golden Retriever, Gretta and himself. "It’s perfect", he said Thursday.

"I am very pleased with the quality of the design, the workmanship and the communication with Bolen Custom Home Builders," he said "The house was made just for me."

Father Kelley moved into the home even earlier than he had planned, which anyone who has built a home would appreciate.

While Father Kelley kept an eye on the day-to-day progress of the carpenters and masons, he appreciated the reports on the financial progress that Bolen provided. "It was very organized," he added.

Father Kelley, and we suspect Gretta, plan to enjoy their new Bolen home" ...Omar Kelly


"Tom and Cheryl are delighted and comfortable on these very wintry days.   This fall Bolen Custom Homes completed their new two-story home on Antigo’s west side and the family agrees it was a rewarding experience. It is an ideal plan that provides plenty of space for the family for entertaining and privacy for school work, computer time and reading.

One of the stunning features of the home is the open staircase just inside the front door and a hanging light fixture in the foyer signals the warmth throughout the neighborhood.

The Antigo home wasn’t the first for the family. An earlier project in Green Bay didn’t go anywhere as smoothly as the experience in Antigo that brought them a cozy and functional home for the family of four.

“Mike Bolen lets you be a part of every decision made about the house.” Cheryl said.  They explained that he is on time and brings a “professional crew” to the job.

“He truly listens to make the house your home,” she added. “I would recommend his business to anyone." ...Tom & Cheryl


"Kevin and Trudy moved into their new home just in time. The 2,000-foot, one-story residence, constructed by Bolen Custom Homes, overlooks a portion of the Riverview Country Club golf course. The course started to come to life last week and the grasses that spread into the distance are starting to green.

They moved from the city of Antigo to the town of Ackley setting after the home was completed during the last days of winter.

The couple said they were impressed with the assistance Bolen personnel provided during construction of the home, usually a trying event.

They were also impressed with the data Bolen provided at regular intervals during construction showing what had been done, where funds had been spent and how the project was progressing.

There were plenty of other positives they found with their Bolen Custom Homes experience.

You are invited to contact Michael Bolen, who is ready and as dozens of others have proven, able to help those ready to build a new home" ...Kevin & Trudy
