Below are references we’ve received from our great clients!

We had a wonderful experience building our home through Ranch Living and the other build entity associates.  We were able to adapt our plans to fit our needs and are thrilled with the outcome.  We learned that building a home can never happen soon enough and experienced our fair share of supply chain issues.  However, in the end, it all came together and any delays we experienced ended up being worth the wait.  Thank you to the Ranch Living team for creating such a wonderful product which will truly be our forever home.

We have come a long way (and many months) since the contract was signed.  All you need to do is look at the picture and you can see it was well worth the wait.  The interior turned out wonderful, and the journey with the staff to select the options and standards yielded a home we are proud to own.   Building during the COVID era had its challenges, but in the end it all worked out.  We love it!  Thanks to Jim, Brett, Aimee, Andy, Chris, Kenny, Jorge and the that dynamic duo in the excavation crew!

After some time of looking for a pre-owned home, we feel so lucky to have found the Valdoro 21 “Spec Home” with Ranch Living when we did.  To find the perfect floor plan on a great lot and to be able to customize the inside to make it ours is just amazing.  Best of both worlds…custom home without the year+ wait time.  The build process has been enjoyable, and we look forward to our continued work with the team.  It’s so exciting to see our beautiful dream home come to life!!

Modern Valdoro Review:

My husband and I just began our journey of building our dream home with Ranch Living / GMC Construction.  Jim, Andy and Sara have been fabulous to work with.  We chose the Modern Valdoro plan for our new home.  One of the first steps in the building process was to meet with the architect to make any wanted changes or adjustments to the plan.  Alex, (the architect) was excellent to work with!  He listened and tuned into what our vision was and why.  Within our first meeting, he and Andy made instrumental changes to the plan that helped us achieve all of our wants and needs.  We are very excited for the upcoming chapters of this adventure.

Imagine being asked to relocate to Colorado in the middle of the largest home buying market and finding a local builder that specializes in semi-custom/custom homes… a huge relief.   We not only were offered a choice lot, but a home designed to enjoy the spectacular views.     The experience of signing the contract, selecting all of our interior design elements, and customizing the exterior to make our home unique was unbelievable.   The team has always been accessible to talk, text, email and meet In person…something that is reassuring when you build something this significant. 

We know good things come in time, so when you select this type of home it goes through rigorous design, planning and some well intended “hand holding”.   The methodology for selection of options and layout is well thought out.    We are looking forward to watching the construction and moving into something we cannot wait to call home.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our experience… Ranch Living can provide my contact information

Windsor Review:

We built a Windsor plan this past year with Jim, Mark, and Andy. When we discovered Ranch Living, we were contemplating whether we buy a home on the secondary market, build with a high frequency semi custom builder such as Saddle Tree, or going through a company like Ranch Living. We decided to build a beautiful ranch from Ranch Living through Jim, with Mark and Andy coordinating and this was the best decision we could’ve made. The cost of the home build was honest and fair, and we received the most bang for our buck. Standard features with Ranch Living are upgrades for most, if not all of the other builders we were considering. We were treated with respect throughout the building process, were involved with nearly all decisions made, and supported by Jim, Mark, and Andy with decades of professional knowledge. We would recommend Ranch Living (Jim, Andy, and Mark) if you want a high quality home, attention that you deserve through a new build, and an end result of a spectacular home. Thank you for making the difficult process of building a home as enjoyable and seamless as possible.

A great reference from clients we’ve just recently signed with to build their new Addison Ranch home in Monument. This comment was posted just after their pre-construction/design review and modifications meeting, done shortly after signing paperwork.

Hi Jim,

We were so pleased with the outcome of our pre-construction meeting. Our needs and wants were carefully listened to. We were thrilled to see our dream home plans later the same day as Brett, our designer/draftsman, made the modifications we discussed to the existing plan.

It has been a pleasure working with Ranch Living.

Our most recent Telluride buyers considered buying vs. settling on an existing home for top dollar that was ready quickly – fortunately for them, they decided to take the plunge, and actually SIGNED paperwork! Read below to see what they received and how thrilled they are to have made that decision. You and your family, and many others, are presently in the same position that the Bennett’s were in. Read this experience and move in the direction they did and have a gorgeous new home with everything in it exactly the way you want. A little patience and it’s yours!

New Telluride 3000 build in Hilltop Pines – Delivered 2019


Per our recent discussion, let me just say that our building experience went well throughout the process. With minimal issues arising, we were pleased with the reality of getting the house to the completion line.

Seeing the home nearing completion, and being exactly what we wanted was thrilling. Everyone was great to work with and to us, it was worth the wait to not have to settle by buying an existing resale home, since most everything was very dated for top dollar.

You are welcome to post this reference on the Ranch Living website, and thank you again!

Valdoro Ranch Semi-Custom Home in Larkspur (Delaware Dr.)

Dear Jim,

We just wanted to send a short note complimenting you on the wonderful job Ranch Living has done for Carlotta and me thus far, on our Valdoro Ranch home purchased through Ranch Living. We couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant and professional experience, as we narrowed down which operation we finally chose to go with.

It was very encouraging to find someone so easy to work with, that had such a good Ranch floorplan for us to work with that fit our needs. Additionally, it didn’t hurt that you provided the best value per square foot either. Keep up the good work!

Valdoro Ranch Semi-Custom Home in Highland Park

To whom it may concern-
We are nearing the completion of our Valdoro Ranch home under construction in Highland Park. The build has gone relatively well with us able to converse regularly with the construction manager, allowing for an open communication process.

Our house is shaping up in a manner that we had hoped for and would recommend a Valdoro build to anyone considering such.

Ranch Semi-Custom Home in High Forest Ranch

Dear Jim,

A sense of beauty, contentment and ongoing pride are sentiments expressed by many when describing our uniquely designed and well-constructed home, built by Jim Vlach [Ranch Living].

It blends design pizzazz with efficient, effective cozy comfort. Even today strangers will stop to comment on the beauty and warmth of this special home. We have heard “it is my favorite home” many, many times.

We would highly recommend Jim Vlach for your new home build, for it will be a source of continuous pride and inspiration for years to come.
