TESTIMONIALS

"Elden is the best builder I know of. Working with Elden on a project is comforting knowing the job will get done right the first time. I recommend Elden to all of my clients, no matter what size, if it is just remodeling the bathroom or building your dream home. I can trust Elden and Southern Trend builders with any project."

Elden, thanks so much for all your hard work and dedication with our house remodeling project. You truly had our best interest at heart and the job turned out great ! We love our new bedroom with the view, the open kitchen and especially the green house. My plants are finally home!

"We had (Elden Smith) Southern Trend Builders build our home for us. All we can say is a great company, a great owner, great craftsmen. Elden listened to ideas, gave advice on a better less expensive way to get the results. Made all appointments and time frame for all appliances, fixtures, etc that where needed in a new house. It is the home of our dreams!!! We would have Elden again for any construction work we should ever need."

"As a real estate agent and broker in the Rogue Valley for 16 years I represented many clients, home owners, as well as builders. It was an honor to represent Elden Smith and Southern Trend Builders, as I always knew that his homes were top quality, his service to the customer was the best and his “after the sale” follow up would be handled professionally and timely."

I have known Elden for approximately 10 years and worked with him on projects that I have designed. He has a good understanding of how a building goes together, he works efficiently, is personable and he is honest. I have recommended him in the past and will recommend him in the future.

"I have had the opportunity to work with Elden Smith several times, I have found him to be both responsive and cooperative on all the projects. He has consistently made my job easier through understanding our clients priorities and concerns."

"Our house was a difficult build on rocky terrain in the country. There were many obstacles to overcome in this build from excavation to customizing many aspects of our home. We made changes along the way and Elden was terrific with helping us to make them work. His insight about things you don’t see (like drainage and facilitating future upgrades) is invaluable. He is very much a “hands on” builder, quick to respond and stays with you after the build is done."
