We Are Honored When People Say Good Things About Us


If you have purchased a home from us, we’d love to hear from you.
Please send us an email with your comments here.

There’s nothing better than hearing from people who’ve been where you’re going. If you’re thinking about purchasing a home from us, take a minute to read what our customers think about our new homes and communities in Hampton Roads.

“The purpose of this letter is to commend the sound and professional business practices of Home Associates of Virginia (HAV). In the fall of 2015, my partner and I began the home buying process and we chose to pursue a home in the Chicks Beach area of Virginia Beach where HAV had already begun construction. The plans for the home were gorgeous and we were extremely excited but also a bit apprehensive, as we had never purchased brand new construction previously and were not familiar with the process.”

“Our apprehensions quickly disappeared as we began working with John Prodan and various other members of the HAV team. It was clear from the start that John was incredibly knowledgeable and had a great deal of experience in his profession. Over the next several months, we maintained close contact with John and the HAV team and watched our beautiful home come together. HAV walked us through the process every step of the way and was very patient and supportive as we navigated through the unfamiliar process. Every person we encountered with HAV and their affiliates demonstrated exemplary professionalism, experience, dedication, and commitment to quality. As we made selections for our new home (cabinets, countertops, tile, etc…), it also became clear that HAV only uses materials of the highest quality. We became more and more excited as our closing date approached, as the house was coming together absolutely beautifully.”

“We closed in February 2016, and the results were stellar. My expectations were far exceeded and I have never been happier with a home. If I am ever pursuing a home in the future, I would work with HAV again without hesitation. Every step of the experience was pleasant and professional. I would highly recommend a home built by HAV to anyone and will continue to commend their professionalism and quality, should the opportunity arise.”


Lisa Porter
Extremely Satisfied Home Owner

“We moved into our Denali model last month at Centerville Commons. We love our new home! It was so worth the wait (though we were very impatiently waiting). It’s beautiful. We battled through a hefty snowstorm (for our area anyway) and while our old home used to get really chilly, and pipes would freeze this home stayed nice and warm, no cold drafts coming from anywhere, no frozen pipes!!”

“We also love that HAV gave us so many wonderful options that were standard to them, while all other homes we toured before deciding on HAV all charged upgrades for. This was what sold us (well, that and the Denali model was everything we were looking for for functionality of space). I can’t say enough about the quality of the build, all the details that were put into the home standard and how much we love our new home!”

“If you are building your first home, you will be spoiled by the details and knowledge and builder interaction that is shared with you during the process.If you are an experienced buyer and have built a home before you will be more impressed by the organized building process and the builders ability to be flexible with your needs. As an Agent representing HAV Inc for many years on various home projects, I am always so proud to say the name HAV in the same sentence as quality, customer service, integrity and caring, after all, that is what I strive for as well.”

Dee Maltese, The Real Estate Group

“We couldn’t be happier in our new home. The quality of materials and craftsmanship are top notch. Everyone we’ve dealt with at HAV has been extremely helpful and friendly. We are so glad we chose HAV to build our home!”

The Frazier Family

“We wanted to let you know that we think HAV and company are doing a superb job with our home. Never have we dealt with such accommodating folks when dealing with home building and we are on our 4th home. Thank you for making this easy thus far. We are very excited and look forward to closing.”

The Denham Family

“When we came to look at Sherwood Lakes we were taken aback at the layout of the subdivision. As you drive in through the gorgeously landscaped entrance you are greeted by the two lakes of serene water. The models are perfectly decorated and the workmanship is top notch. We were very impressed with their finish work, and the landscaping is beautiful through out the neighborhood. We love how each house looks out on to a common area which makes us feel more connected with our neighbors. We can sit out on our porch and enjoy the peaceful air and watch our children play and ride their bikes.

Since we have moved in, we have taken several walks and runs around the lake and on the nature trails. Our children really enjoy riding their bikes on the trails as we walk the dogs. It is a beautiful area and is perfect for nature and city lovers alike. We really love how close we are to all of the stores, everything that you could need is within a 5 minute drive, it is perfect. It is so convenient, you have the accessibility of everything around you, yet you have the serenity of being secluded in the picturesque landscape. The school is wonderful and the kids have learned so much since they have been there.

We couldn’t be more happy with our choice of buying a house in Sherwood Lakes. The only word that really sums it up for us.. is that it is perfect!”

The Becks

“The homes at Sherwood Lakes are very well built and available at sensible prices. We were very impressed that the builder sat down with us face to face to create the final layout of our new home. This extra effort provided us with a very comfortable and beautiful home. We searched for over two years in Virginia Beach before deciding on Sherwood Lakes and H.A.V., Inc. but our patience paid off.

H.A.V. Inc goes to great lengths to ensure your home will be designed to fit your needs and desires. Throughout the process you feel like a valuable customer, not just a number on a contract. Our experience with HAV was very pleasant.

The community layout is very unique and gives the neighborhood openness not found in other new developments. We know this is true because as we mentioned before, we looked at most in Virginia Beach over the previous two years. The development seems to be in the country but we are actually only five minutes away from a major shopping center with a wide variety of retailers. We love being at Sherwood Lakes. It is nice to enjoy a walk through the quiet neighborhood on the paved paths, or just relax on our front porch enjoying the lake view and the wildlife that is always gathered there.”

“Dear Rob, Erica & All, I must say this has been a fantastic experience dealing with you and my buyers feel the same way. You have been most generous in the building process and always strived to make them happy. ” “I hope I have buyers in your price range again soon so I can bring them out to your site. You build a fantastic product for a good price. Good luck in selling out the neighborhood and I hope we can work together again soon.”

Carol Tietjen

“Dear Rob and all of the HAV Family,”Mike and I wish to thank all of you. We have been fortunate to have had 7 new homes, but this little cottage has been the best experience we have ever had in buying a home. All of your employees and all of your contractors worked as a team and they know how to get the job done.” “We really love our home. We were overwhelmed with the standard features you give to clients. We feel like we a part of the HAV familly- and that feels good. Would we recommend you as a builder- you better believe we would. The workmanship in this house in unbelievable.”

The Randolphs

“Dear HAV, We are writing this letter to let you know how pleased we are with our new home. Even the standard features of this house are well above the norm, and we are very pleased with the workmanship. We would also like to thank you for taking care of the 60 day punch list in such a quick and efficient manner. So often builders forget about you after the final papers have been signed, but your care and concern after closing showed us that you do care about your customers.

A very special thank you to your crew, especially Dustin, and your office staff, for “going the extra mile” in helping to make our home buying process a lot smoother.”

The Herrings

“Dear Mr. Prodan, In place of our “1st year list,” we would like to express our gratitude and level of satisfaction of our home at 929 Antonick Lane. From the very beginning, HAV has made this an enjoyable experience and has surpassed any need or want we have had concerning our new home. Your staff always goes above and beyond in order to meet the company’s high quality expectations and the homeowner’s desires. Thank you for taking pride in the homes you build….you have a neighborhood full of happy homeowners!”

The Kantirakis

“HAV, Nadia and I are very happy with the beautiful home that HAV built for us. It was fun watching the house under construction. The knowledge and professionalism of every person we came into contact with, was great and gave us an assurance of quality and integrity. Minor problems were addressed in a timely manner and always with a smile. Thank you, HAV, for making our transition to Virginia Beach a smooth one.”
