Peter & Andrea Valeri, Bear Homes Residents
We want to express our appreciation to the outstanding Bear Homes team for building our custom home. When we decided to build a custom home, the team at Bear Homes accommodated our ever-changing needs. Bear Homes went above and beyond our expectations in the building process. It was important to us to have this support of the team at Bear Homes since we had our own ideas in mind while designing our plans. We knew that we would need a very patient group of professionals to work with us, as we are very detail-oriented people, and Dina, Keith, and Mike were especially flexible with our requests. During every stage of the building process someone was there to answer any of our questions or concerns. The workmanship and professionalism from the estimator, scheduler, carpenter, and on-site project manager was outstanding.
We couldn’t be more thrilled with our new custom-built home by Bear Homes. Now our family is thoroughly enjoying our new house, which has been built to suit our lifestyle in the best ways imaginable.
If you’re looking for a team to work with your specific needs, Bear Homes will definitely satisfy. We can’t recommend Bear Homes highly enough. Dina, Keith, and Mike were fun to work with, while holding their work to high standards along the way. Thank you Bear Homes; your hard work is beautifully showcased in our family home.

When we started looking for a home, it was not our intention to purchase a new build. Turns out it was the best decision we made, so much so that we recommended Bear Homes to a friend, who is now having her home built by Bear Homes. We would again highly recommend Bear Homes to anyone that wishes excellent care, courtesy, and knowledge. We are very satisfied with the outcome of our purchase in all areas. Thank you all so much!
Stan and Bernice Lecce, Bear Homes Residents
There are no words to thank you for all that you have done for us so that we could build our beautiful home. We want everyone to know what an exceptional crew Bear Homes has. Not only did we have fun with all of them but we made special friends as well. We never thought it would be this fun and meet so many wonderful people along the way. Dina was so much fun, so helpful so kind and provided so many good ideas. She took her time with us and showed us nothing but the best. Keith and Mike were the best also. No matter what changes we made they were always willing to make us happy. This is our retirement home and we will be sure to spread the word how good Bear Homes has been to us.
Dan and Jenna Matteucci, Bear Homes Residents
We chose the Kingston model with slight modifications, and we couldn’t be happier with the floor plan and our decision to build with Bear Homes. Both worked perfectly for our family.
Since we were new to the building process we wanted to work with a builder that would be responsive to our questions and concerns. Dina and Keith certainly delivered on that expectation. They explained every step of the process, patiently answered all of our questions throughout the build, made cost-saving recommendations when possible, and kept us informed of all progress. We were delighted when construction was finished weeks ahead of schedule. We have been in our new home for three months now and have found the quality of construction to be outstanding.
Thank you Bear Homes & CMA – We recommend you to anyone who asks!

Thank you for helping us through this whole process of building our special home. You’ve been so helpful with all of our choices and we love the outcome! We are so thankful that we chose Bear Homes and their awesome team.
Kevin & Amy Hansen, Bear Homes Residents
The team at Bear Homes consists of true professionals. Dina, Keith and Jonah were all very accessible throughout our entire design and build process, and they remained focused on keeping us involved while staying true to their original timeline. Dina shared our passion for designing the perfect place, Keith was meticulous when it came to every last detail, and Jonah worked with us every step along the way to ensure our satisfaction. The result was the home of our dreams. After living in our home for several months, over all four seasons, we have been impressed with the energy efficiency that has resulted in significant savings. Both Dina and Keith remain accessible and they follow through in a timely fashion on anything we need during our warranty period.
Thanks Bear Homes!

We moved into our Bear built home in August 2013 and it’s the best move we have ever made! We were in desperate need of a larger home due to “tripling” the size of our family two years ago. Dina Perrine-Meinzer, Keith Plants, and the entire Bear team assisted us in not only building our beautiful home, but also leasing out our existing property.
From start to finish, Bear communicated with us and spent quality time to help us add those personal touches that make our house practical and perfect. Our family finally has a HOME.
Thank you, Bear Homes!

“My husband and I built our dream home with Bear Homes and couldn’t be happier in it. We started out by looking at all different floor plans and with the help of the draftsman we were able to design our own custom 2800sf ranch plan with a walk out basement.
Construction began and everything was smooth all the way through. Keith was a new PM at the time and helped us along every step of the way, keeping us informed on scheduling and what was coming next.
House was completed in time. It was a wonderful experience to work with everyone at Bear Homes and would HIGHLY recommend for a custom built home.”

From the moment my family and I found the home that had everything we were looking for, Bear homes (or CMA Construction) was nothing short of attentive and flexible to every detail of finishing the home with only our interests in mind. Our home, the ‘Wellington Model’, was about 30% through the building process and we had a great chance to request several changes to the interior and exterior of the home to make it our own. This process from what we have heard is typically a painful one with delays and troubles with extended completion times. We find it important to note that in our change request to the home, we added several weeks if not months to the work that was needed. This included a full finish project of the basement and almost every aspect of the interior of the home to be changed from the original plans. If it is in some families’ experience that this is again, a painful process, we can honestly say that picking the right company and people to work with makes the difference in how the process will go, and how successful the outcome will be.
At no part in the months of completing the home did Bear homes (or CMA Construction) miss a step is working exhaustedly to meet the request for changes we had requested. This included a critical time frame we had asked of them given our own personal circumstances. Our fears of our strict time frame affecting the effort put in to creating a home that only meets the highest quality standards was quickly put aside. Tasks that had to wait to complete after the papers were signed, and no ties from Bear homes (or CMA Construction) had remained, were still performed with great detail and very little disruption to normal living.
From the day Bear homes (or CMA Construction) handed us the keys to our new home we were taken aback by the level of craftsmanship. Even after months of living in our new Bear homes (or CMA Construction) home, we look around and marvel at the work that went into the house, and not just on the large focal points in the house like detailed stone work around the fireplace, but also on every small trim detail through the house. There is perfection at every turn!
It is with great pleasure that my family recommends Bear homes (or CMA Construction) to any family in search of a new construction home or an existing home that is being processed through Bear. You will find yourself quickly under people that will never stop being helpful, thoughtful, versatile, and hard-working to make your experience a good one.
We would personally like to thank Dina Perrine-Meinzer, New Construction Marketing & Sales of Bear Communities/Bear Homes and Jonah Hetland, Chief Operating Officer of CMA Construction, for always putting everything they had into helping us through and working endlessly to create a home we truly call our own.

I have lived in my CMA-built home for the past four years and we have the benefit of reporting no issues…knock on wood. Our family has witnessed seasons that were riddled with torrential rains and extreme winters with minimal side effects and shockingly low energy bills. Our experience with CMA has been positive and we would recommend their services to friends and family as a quality builder in the area.
Keep up the good work.

We love our condo! We were looking into condo living for about four or five years. We decided that we were tired of the whole outside upkeep of a home, and we liked the idea of being able to just lock the doors and take off anytime we wanted to travel without the worry of shoveling snow or cutting grass. We looked at many kinds of units and locations but nothing was exactly right. Then we met Lisa DeBartolo and she showed us Sun Pointe. We knew almost immediately that this was the right size and location. We watched our condo being built from start to finish and our experience dealing with Bear Properties, and Lisa and Dennis from CMA, was nothing but positive. Even the actual construction process was an enjoyable one. Anything and everything that was promised to us was honored. We have told some of our friends about our experience and two of them have purchased in Sun Pointe Village. We encourage anyone who is considering condo living to contact Bear Properties and join us at Sun Pointe Village. WE LOVE IT!!!
