Rob and Helena Rice take great pride in the team’s commitment to excellence. This shows in high-quality homes and exceptional customer service for homebuyers.

As a company that exemplifies these qualities in the South Puget Sound region, Rob Rice Homes has held a place of honor among the Select Builders group since 2018. Rob Rice states, “We are incredibly proud of our team’s consistent achievement in earning this award year after year. Every member of our team prioritizes building high-quality homes, thoughtfully designing inviting neighborhoods and delivering superior customer service.”

Their commitment extends beyond construction, as they recognize the importance of fostering long-term relationships with their homeowners.  “We don’t just refer our homeowners to the warranty program,” explains Rob. “We take the initiative to visit their homes and address any problems that may arise.” This after-sales approach is a cornerstone of their philosophy and a key reason why they boast a loyal customer base with many repeat buyers.

Helena Rice emphasizes their homeowner-centric strategies. “Our top priority at Rob Rice Homes is our homeowners. We ensure that every aspect of our process, from designing and building to servicing our homes, is done with the buyer in mind.”

Reinforcing this approach, the final walk-through process transforms a simple explanation of the home’s functions to a comprehensive lesson on proper maintenance. “Homeowners receive a binder with all the information they need,” explains Helena. “While the final walk-through can sometimes take a couple of hours, it’s an investment in our homeowners’ long-term satisfaction.”
