Here`s why: They listen, they execute, and they deliver...

If you are searching for the premier home builder in California, look no further than Element Homes. Here’s why: They listen, they execute, and they deliver the highest quality home that you can imagine. Amanda is a tremendous talent who transforms your vision into reality. She is an excellent listener who provides thoughtful feedback and always leads you to the right outcome. Rucha executes every idea that is discussed during the planning stages. Nothing is left out. Rahul delivered a complex project within the aggressive timeframe that we expected. He managed an outstanding group of subcontractors like a symphony conductor.  Amanda kept the selection process efficient and on track. Rahul leads a team that is cohesive, customer-focused, professional, and always does the right thing for their client.  In the case of the large home they constructed on our behalf in San Mateo, their forward-thinking design, first-class quality of material and exceptional workmanship created a monument that has exceeded our expectations. I recommend this company unequivocally to anyone who desires to work with the absolute best designer and builder for their new home.


Family Office Investor & Real Estate Developer

No surprises, no nickel and diming, just high quality performance.

I am a professional developer with over 40 years of commercial development experience and over $500 million in construction over that period of time. I have built four large high end homes from scratch and substantially remodeled two others in projects exceeding one million in each case. I have experience with five residential builders and just over ten commercial builders. My evaluation of these contractors ranges from frustrating and unacceptable to outstanding. My experience with Element Homes has been outstanding if not exceptional. The majority of the seven month major remodeling project the folks at Element Homes handled the challenges and only involved me to ensure they understood what I wanted. Those few other issues which arose, once Rahul understood what my concerns were, they quickly took charge and insulated me from the discussions with subcontractors. They handled it until I (or rather my wife) was happy. The communications from Element Homes was outstanding. Weekly written reports and photos were provided and they talked to me on the phone or in person whenever it was requested by either party. No surprises, no nickel and diming, just high quality performance. It was a very pleasant experience from the start to the end. I will go back to Element Homes for my next project. I highly recommend Element Homes to anyone considering a high quality luxury residential construction project.



The prices are commensurate with the excellent quality of work.

I will start off by saying that I am always extremely cautious with spending money. I always do my research to find the best provider for the best price. It takes a ton of time and effort and that's how I found Element Homes to build my custom home in San Jose. The work was impeccably done, Rahul and his crew are highly professional, he and his staff complete the project you want but are ready and willing to share other design options to enhance your vision. The prices are commensurate with the excellent quality of work. They stand behind their work and are not satisfied until the job has been completed to your, and their, satisfaction. I have recommended them to others who have also raved about Rahul and the work he does.
