When shaking a client’s hand after completing a home, I receive gratification from the knowledge that my team did a great job, and that the client would readily choose Ramsey Building Co. again. My customers have been very good to me and I want to do the same for them.
The signature of a Ramsey home is the incorporation of the latest building products with the rustic qualities of antique building materials. This can only be done with the employment of true tradesmen and the finest craftsmen carpenters.

After living in Michigan for the last fourteen years, upon our retiring we had finally decided on moving back to Missouri, since my wife and I are both from the southwest Missouri area. We had taken our time on trying to decide where we wanted to build, but had not made a final decision until we sold our home in Michigan. After selling our home in October 2009, and planning on retiring the next year, we decided it was time to make a final decision. We had talked with other builders, but we just did not get that “warm and fuzzy feeling” that we like to experience when dealing with certain folks. I had made a few contacts with people I knew in the Springfield area, one being a commercial architect. One morning, I got a phone call from him and he indicated he had just the right builder for me. He mentioned Rick Ramsey of Ramsey Building.
My wife and I contacted Rick, and decided right then we had found the builder we wanted to use. Now, keep in mind we were 700 miles away, and asking a builder we did not know to build us our retirement home without us being able to go over each evening to inspect what they had completed on a given day. We chose to work with Rick Ramsey because he was trustworthy, very particular, and we felt that he would keep us informed, regardless of the distance we had to deal with during the construction process. Rick always called us on decisions that needed to be made, or changes that he felt we needed to make. Sure, we made some trips down to Springfield, actually visiting the construction site on a monthly basis. I do not recall one time that I needed to talk with him about any item I felt was not up to our standards.
This home was the third one we had built over our working lives, so we knew what to expect during the construction process. You always know when building a home that the builder is only as good as the sub-contractors he hires. From the time the framing started until the final carpet was installed and we moved into our new home, the quality, professionalism, and craftsmanship were superb.
My wife, Connie, and I could not be more satisfied with the final product. Rick really cares about his work, and it shows. After moving in and going through all the little things that you need to take care of during a move, we noticed people would ask “who built your home?” When we responded “Rick Ramsey”, 100% of these folks said “Oh….he is a great builder!” We agree, and strongly recommend Rick Ramsey of Ramsey Building Company to anyone building a new home, or even remodeling an older home. You will not be disappointed.

Rick Ramsey has the combination of creativity, intelligence, and attention to detail that make him the ideal builder. His leadership and organizational skills meant that there were only a handful of days without work being done during the yearlong build of our dream home. Small problems were quickly fixed before they became big problems. He had numerous ways to save costs and yet provide the highest quality. Upon completion, our home was appraised at well beyond its cost to build. It is Rick’s integrity which was most important in choosing him, and the reason I have enthusiastically recommended him to several of my physician colleagues.

Rick has built two homes for our family in the last eight years. Spanning from our first home that we ever built to our current dream home, Rick has always done an impeccable job. He is receptive to the client’s ideas and input, creative, and has an attention to detail that is unmatched. While we do not plan on building any time soon, I would without hesitation use Ramsey Building Company again.

We met Rick through my parents’ neighborhood. We had heard that he was a very good builder, and specialized in the French country cottage look with lots of antique beams. When we met with Rick, we realized he would be the perfect builder for our lake home; since we had such a pleasant experience with the building of the lake home, we decided to have him build our personal home. During the process of building our home we found him to be easy to work with, very detailed, and keeping us informed through the whole process. Now we have a beautiful home and great friend.

Moving from Ohio to Missouri, the only person we knew was our realtor. He gave us the name of several builders, but said Rick Ramsey would be very easy to work with – we definitely found that true. Rick helped us build our dream home, making it fun and worry free. He kept us informed and involved every step of the way. Rick was always caring, devoted, very detailed, and definitely had a passion for his work. We feel we have one of the finest built homes in Missouri, and we thank Rick for making our dreams come true. We feel that we also found a friend for life in the process.

In 2006, Rick Ramsey built our custom home in Nixa. His communication with us was great, and his quality of work and attention to detail was wonderful. During the building, we noticed that the subs he chose and the guys that work directly under him had an amazing respect for him as an employer and as a person.
If you are trying to choose a builder and need someone who will listen to your opinions and really care about what you want in a house, then Rick Ramsey and the people that work for him are your kind of people. We appreciated how well organized his business was run, and how available he was when we had a question or concern.
We cannot say enough about him as a builder. Thanks, Rick, for such a great HOME for our family.

When asked to describe Rick Ramsey and his team, the first two words that come to mind are “professional” and “caring”. Throughout the complete building process, Rick was easy to communicate with; if, on occasion, I was unable to reach him immediately by phone, I could be certain that he would call back promptly.
Rick’s team and subs were always on time, if not early, to the job. I’ve joked with Rick that this was great, except for making it difficult for me to procrastinate. I could be sure that if they were scheduled for Wednesday, they would be there on Wednesday (or maybe even Tuesday!), not a day or two later as is often the case.
Being a banker, I’ve worked with several builders, and Rick has a high reputation in his industry and among his peers.

I was fortunate to have Rick Ramsey be willing to take on building my guest house, which was designed to fit in a very small and intricate space. He was absolutely wonderful to work with, in that he was efficient, thorough, creative, communicative, and had great employees.
Rick is the type of builder who was on top of the entire project at all times. I always smile about how far advanced of most builders he was in using a blackberry type phone for notes and records. In addition, he had to coordinate with a pool company building a pool along side of the guest house. Rick and his employees were always good about working things out.
Rick is a true professional who was a joy to work with.

Mr. Ramsey’s work is superb; our home is beyond expectation. His attention to detail and coordination of multiple efforts has obviously been responsible for the finished product. Mr. Ramsey was always available to discuss our concerns, and was diligent in obtaining competitive pricing of materials and services. His commitment and honesty as ‘our builder’ were apparent throughout the process.
We recommend Mr. Ramsey without reservation.

My fiancée Jessica and I did not know Rick before we started the building process, but we have grown to trust him, and would definitely now consider him a friend. I’m sure you’ve heard many times (as had we) that building a home is one of the toughest things you can do in life, but our experience was nothing of the sort. Part of this can be attributed to the fact that we had a very good sense of what we wanted in a home, but I believe the rest is due to Rick’s organization and building process. In fact, that was one of the reasons we chose him; from the first time we met with Rick, he showed us the spreadsheets and organized procedures that he employs, and kept us regularly updated along the way.
Rick’s original bid seemed a bit overwhelming, but we appreciated the detail, and in the end, there were no surprises and no additional “nickel and dime” items that pushed the budget up. In fact, even after we upgraded several items and made some additions we didn’t originally plan on, Rick was able to complete the build a month early and right on budget. We are extremely happy with the end product and Rick’s incredible attention to detail. I know this may not mean much coming from a complete stranger, but I would, and have, recommended Ramsey Building Co. to my close friends and clients who trust my opinions on a routine basis.
