What our customers say about us

We strive to offer a true custom home building experience to our clients by perfectly tailoring your home to your needs and lifestyle.

What is there to say other than WOW!!!!! Dan and his whole team made this entire process seamless and smooth from start to finish. Not only were all the subs and vendors professional and knowledgeable, they offered their opinions and it really gave us the look we were going for with our dream home. I can’t say enough great things about Kruse Development other than, if you are thinking about building a home – give Dan a call. His knowledge and process for building a home is top notch. I promise you won’t be disappointed!!

–Danielle Frye

They always say, don’t build your forever home first. But my husband and I can honestly say there is nothing in our home we would change. We’ve received so many compliments on our home. The finishing work is beautiful, no corners cut, and Dan is proud of the work as well because it’s his name on it. He takes extreme pride in his homes and you quickly learn that after a 10 minute conversation with him. If however, we did decide to build again, we’d definitely use Dan and Kruse Development—if he’d have us! Would highly recommend this company to anyone, and already have a handful of times. Thanks again, Dan!

“Kruse Development built by dream home! Dan took my dream of having a modern farm home and worked to make sure every detail was perfect. He was super easy to communicate with and I always felt comfortable calling him even for the most minor detail. He is known for making some beautiful modern homes, but he really showed his creativity with this farm styled home. I have been in the home for a few months, and still am just in love with it!"

“Dan was very easy to work with on our custom build and provided a near stress free process. He provided direction, but still allowed us to take some risks on our ideas and brought them to fruition. He is experienced way beyond his years, and any hiccups were handled in a timely manner. His subs were personable and professional, and seemed very happy to work for him. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family looking to build. Overall the finished product exceeded our expectations and we now have our dream home!"

"Can’t speak highly enough about Dan and his team! He helped make our home building process basically stress free. They only use the best materials and contractors in the Des Moines metro and the quality of work is outstanding. Dan is always available to meet in person and take calls, no matter the time or day. I’m very happy we chose Dan and his team and we are loving our new forever home."

"To say we are absolutely blown away by Dan and Kruse Development would be an understatement, as someone who once worked with multiple builders I can confidently say that Dan and his team are TOP NOTCH. From start to finish the Kruse Team worked hard and did everything they could to bring our home to life, in a world where supplies, materials and labor are in short supply and enough back orders to drive anyone mad, Dan was very patient and up-front about anything that had to be changed he wouldn't just cut corners as he said "We need to do it right no shortcuts". Also I would like to say that behind every great builder like Dan is a group of hand selected vendors he trusts his reputation with and not one of them disappointed, they all made the process smooth and fun and were all experts in the fields.

Thank you to Dan and Team for building our beautiful new home!"

"This is THE Des Moines area builder to use. They are FAST, use the best materials and vendors in the area. Could not be happier! Most everyone I know that built has not been completely happy with their builder or the building process, not us! Use Kruse if you want the best."

"I worked as a Buyer's agent for my clients who built a custom home with Kruse. So impressed with communication, process, and quality at Kruse Development! Dan and his team were fantastic to work with and the home is absolutely gorgeous! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a top-notch builder in Central Iowa."
