Due to our concern for the health and safety of our community, Brighton employees, customers, and local Realtor partners, we have closed all model homes, corporate office and design center. Instead, our team has implemented virtual appointments via Zoom and FaceTime in order to best serve you.

Catherine Owens (2017)
I recently closed on a Brighton home and will say that this was the best home buying experience I have ever had. Although I have purchased several homes in past, this is the first home I have purchased alone, which was a little more intimidating. My background professionally is in relationship based sales training so I pay special attention to the customer service aspects. The customer service was of the highest level and exceeded any expectation that I had. A week prior to closing I met with one of Brighton’s employees to do a walk through of my new home. He spent two hours explaining every detail of my home, both on the interior as well as the exterior. He explained everything from how to unclog the dishwasher, to how to set the sprinkler system. I then met with the home warranty specialist to go through every warranty the home has as well as how and when to contact someone in the event that something went wrong. It was the first time purchasing a home that I felt like I knew the home inside and out and was confident that I would be able to address any future concerns or problems. The quality of the home is exceptional and of highest quality down to every last detail. I am a person that appreciates the little things and throughout the whole buying process, to the functionality and esthetics of the home, Brighton paid attention to detail. I don’t plan on buying another home anytime soon, but if I do it will be a Brighton home

Megan Marie (2017) 
What an amazing experience building with Brighton has been! We have had every question answered and every doubt taken care of with this wonderful team of people. Candi has gotten back to us so extremely quick on every email that is sent and every question we have asked. It’s nice to have peace of mind while having a home built. We are thrilled to have a home of our own that is exactly what we’ve dreamed of. I can’t say enough good things about Brighton and how incredible they are.

The Booras Family (2016)
Knowing the reputation that Brighton has for building not only beautiful homes, but also homes the are energy efficient as well, made the decision to build with an Brighton easy one.  We love knowing our utility bills are reduced and appreciate being able to be comfortable in our home.  We know Brighton has high standards and takes pride in providing top of the line energy efficient amenities that protect both home owners comfort and the environment. Their team made the process of building our home so smooth, and they were nothing but professional and friendly! We have been so happy in our Brighton Home!

The Gabrielsen Family  (2016)
After living in many different homes across the US, we decided to build with Brighton. Their careful design of energy efficient homes made for an easy decision. Brighton’s high construction standards have led to significant economic savings. We absolutely love our new home!

The Fortunati Family (2016)
Having an Energy Star Certified home was an important decision as we looked into the new home products that are within our market. This decision was important not just because of the potential savings, but for creating a smaller energy footprint in our community and setting an example of conservation for our young child. Its not only what we create and save for ourselves, but what we leave for others. Building an Energy Star Certified home meant we created something that benefited us, but was also more sustainable for the future. This is something we feel all individuals, businesses, and industries should strive for. Energy Star wasn’t an option in our choice of products, it was a requirement.

The Palmer Family (2016)
We built our new home with Brighton and couldn’t be happier! The team we had with Candi, Anthony, John and Jim , took great care of us and built us a beautiful home.

The Inwards Family (2016)
We love our new Brighton Energy Star Certified home. Where we notice the biggest difference is when the temperatures outside really change. Our inside temp seems to hold pretty steady, cool in the summers and warm in the winter. We have found that our utility bills are much lower. 

The Petersons Family (2016)
We purchased a Brighton home on October 31, 2016. The home was featured in the Boise Fall Parade of Homes. We have been very satisfied with the quality displayed throughout the home. We experienced a couple of minor problems early on and were most impressed with the timeliness of Brighton’s response as well as the response by the sub contractors who worked each issue. We would highly recommend Brighton Homes to anyone looking for new construction.

Robert Wheadon (2016)
Highly recommend Brighton Homes! Every phase of the build process was managed with the utmost professionalism. Impressed by the team’s willingness to work with us to create space that met our needs. Thankful for their ideas and suggestions. Pleased with their follow up. Their online warranty tool makes it simple to submit issues and get immediate resolution. We love our home!!!

K. Christensen (2016)
Brighton Homes builds a quality product and its team is dedicated to making the home-buying experience a pleasant one. After working with Brighton, I am one happy buyer. What is important to note is that all of my neighbors within the complex echo that emotion. The homes are gorgeous, well-appointed and well planned. From the construction to the paint to the finishes and right down to the fixtures, the quality and workmanship are excellent. Although the needs have been few, the warranty team does an outstanding job. They respond to concerns in a timely manner, follow up to make sure the work was done satisfactorily, and are always friendly and never impatient. I can’t imagine being more pleased with the home, or the Brighton Team. You won’t be disappointed!

The Hofmann Family (2016)
We would like to say that we are delighted with our new Brighton built energy star home.  It is everything we wanted, and more!

The Gunning Family (2016)
Working with the folks at Brighton was a great experience.   You have exceeded our expectations.   Norm and Paula Gunning







The Holbrook Family (2015) 
I am hearing at least once a day from Megan how happy she is in the house, and she has some experience in it, having stayed home for the past 10 weeks. It is very comfortable, and is meeting all of our needs. We love our neighbors, and really couldn’t be happier.

The Shenkel Family (2015)
We have lived in our Brighton home for two months now. We purchased the Trail Creek in River Heights. I have appreciated the kindness and professionalism of everyone we have met during the process – realtor, contractors, inspectors, landscapers and neighbors. One of the most important aspects to me is the service that has come after the build. I have found a few things which needed attention and they have quickly responded to my requests. The contractors all seem competent and concerned being sure I am happy with any fixes. Brighton is known in this community for building a quality home and I would agree. I think they also take pride in the surrounding neighborhood ensuring the design stays agreeable for all the homes being built – meaning they don’t just repeat design upon design. We are enjoying watching the neighborhood come together as we are only the third owner in our phase.

The England Family (2015)
It is a amazing home, but on top of that, Brighton Homes has impressive customer service too. I have built many homes and Brighton by far has been the most responsive and helpful after we moved in. Very impressive!!

Laurie Barrera, Real Estate Agent (2015)
Brighton Homes exceeded my Buyers expectations for their new townhome project at Park Place in NE Boise. I have to admit, the overall finishes are HGTV worthy, too! The colors, the products, the tile and accents as well as the built-in features make this a very livable unit. The location close to the Boise River greenbelt and Foothills makes this project a home run!

Kari Christiansen (2015)
I cannot say enough about what a fabulous experience it was to build a home with Brighton Homes Idaho. Having never gone through the building process before, I was a bit nervous. Almost everyone I had talked to that had a home built with other builders told me it was a stressful and frustrating process, and to be prepared for that. Brighton’s team of professionals and system of walking me through the steps made all the difference in giving me a positive experience. Their years of experience, excellence and commitment to building high end homes was evident throughout the process. Every person I dealt with at Brighton was professional, positive, efficient and communicated with me timely every step of the way. There were no surprises in what was happening next and they stayed on schedule. Their beautiful design center also made the selection process uncomplicated and fun! There are bound to be issues that come up when building a home, but how they are remedied is what mattered the most to me. Lars Hansen and his team made sure every issue was taken care of to my satisfaction. They also listened to my specific design requests in working with me to modify the original floor plan as I changed every room in my house, added on square footage and designed an expansive patio and outdoor kitchen area. It turned out exactly as I had envisioned and I wouldn’t change one thing about it or any other area of my house. They also took care of me AFTER closing by responding timely to my requests to have minor repairs and touch-ups completed. Jennifer, Erby, Anthony, Seth and Dee are the best of the best. I am thrilled with my new home and I would do it all again with Brighton Homes Idaho in a minute.

Lee Hill, Group One (2015)
My clients were treated with utmost respect by an energetic team of professionals in all phases of the construction process. Their questions were answered and concerns/desires addressed. Even the door bell reflected a buyer preference! Kudos and gratitude to the Brighton team.

The Bingham Family (2014)
Brighton Homes is an excellent builder. The building process is very precise and they pay attention to every detail. Building an energy star home was important to us. We chose a floor plan, met with the design team and created a beautiful custom home. Deadlines were met and exceeded in some areas. You are assigned to a superintendent and project coordinator that manages your construction project. The project coordinator works directly with the client and takes care of questions and concerns in a timely manner. We appreciated the fact that we could go to one design center and make all of our interior and exterior choices with the help of a design expert. We met with a landscape designer who created a beautiful yard that complements our corner lot. The landscape team was exceptional. The warranty department met all of our expectations. Warranty does not end at the completion of your project. Brighton Homes has been in business in the Treasure Valley for a long time. Their professionalism is exemplary.

The Williams Family (2014)
A quality home builder in the area. We are glad we choose Brighton to build our new home and would recommend them.

The Leach Family (2014)
Overall, we had a fantastic experience with Brighton! We are very happy! Brighton is a local builder who takes the time to make sure you get exactly what you want in a quality home.

Ms. Bergeson (2014)

Denice at Building Energy / EnergyStar Certifications
Our company provides independent verification’s of energy efficient building practices. We have worked with Brighton Homes for a few years now and this company consistently meets or exceeds the standard home performance requirements. Having attended several meetings and interacting with staff members, it is clear that they, as a company, truly care about constructing a quality product for their home buyers.

The Booras Family (2013)
We love the quality of our home and the little details Brighton adds to set them apart from other builders. The team has always been professional and treated us with respect. We loved our experience of building with Brighton Homes and have a beautiful home to enjoy!

The Powell Family (2013)
We had a wonderful home building experience with Brighton on every level and with every employee. The attention to detail that began with Lars’ home design was carried through by everyone that we worked with. We’re very grateful for that and we couldn’t be more pleased with our new home!

The Bendeck Family (2013)
The best builder, period!

The Dipzinski Family (2013)
Excellent quality, workmanship and follow through. These people stand behind their product. It is by far the best quality house we’ve ever owned!

Mark Tidd (2012)
A very professional building company with employees that will exceed your expectations. For us, it all started with Lars. He exceeded our expectations. His eye for design is impeccable.

The Bonin Family
Our home is well constructed and designed, with lovely amenities and landscaping within the entire community.

The Beard Family
What I love about Brighton is the very solid construction, personal attention to the buyer, and great follow-through at a reasonable price. The finish-work is excellent and the color palettes are modern.

The Bussey Family
High quality building company with superior customer service on all levels. Their process is smooth and customer-oriented, making the home buying experience exciting and fun.

The Boyd’s
I love my home. Brighton has developed a stellar reputation for itself and has set a standard far above their competitors. I hope I always live in a Brighton home…for if I didn’t, I’m sure I’d feel as if I made a mistake at some point. Thank you for building such a high quality product.

Brian Forcina (2013)
It’s a very well thought out home. I love the large windows and established landscaping. They have made great use of all spaces for adequate storage; there’s no wasted space. The house seems to stay really warm without having to overly use the heater. I am amazed at how well insulated it is. I’m never sure how to dress, because the inside temperature never reflects how drastically different the outside temperature is.

The Desilet’s
We are thrilled with the quality and definitely appreciate the low energy bills each month.

The Levingston’s
We would describe ourselves as empty nesters who wanted efficiency and low cost maintenance. What the home provides for us is great economic savings. Energy efficient windows, walls, and HVAC system make it easy for us to live, come and go. We love our home!

The Powell Family
We had a wonderful home building experience with Brighton on every level and with every employee. The attention to detail that began with Lars’ home design was carried through by everyone that we worked with. We’re very grateful for that and we couldn’t be more pleased with our new home!

Adam Sullivan
I just wanted to thank everyone at Brighton Homes for our fantastic new home. Everyone at Brighton ranging from the design team to the construction and warranty teams have been awesome. The customer service we received throughout the design and building process was second to none. Additionally, the warranty center has helped resolve any minor problems we’ve had in a very timely manner. I would recommend building a home with Brighton to everyone I know. Thanks again for everything!

Tempe McFarlane ~ Realtor/Coldwell Banker Tomlinson Group
I had an excellent experience with Brighton Homes. Not only does my client love the home and floor plan, but Brighton has been very committed to all minor concerns and touch-ups after my client moved in. They went above and beyond to attend to special needs my client wanted in the process of purchasing a Brighton Home. Lindsey was great to work with and always gave excellent customer service to me and my clients. I highly recommend them and would absolutely work with them again. They build a superior home with courteous realtors/employees supporting their integrity. Thank you to Brighton Homes ! YOU are terrific.

Paul & Gwynn Mazzaglia
I have been involved in the “business” of Service for the past 34 years. All too often I have seen that, while the “talk” is good, the service after the sale is the real mark of a fine, caring and truly professional organization. Since we closed on the home in December of 2012, we have had a few issues arise with regard to repainting, repairing and/or replacing things in the home. From the beginning, the people at Brighton (the contractors doing the actual work as well as the agents) have been “perfect.” All of you lived up to my every (and some would say unreasonable) expectations.
From the day we met Carlos in June of 2012 through last week (may 2013), when Brighton sent a plumber out to troubleshoot and repair a leak, the professionalism and “service oriented” people throughout the Brighton system did not disappoint! From Carlos to Cindy to Lars to Gay … to that plumber just last week, everyone at (or representing) Brighton Homes made Gwynn and I feel as though we were building a “Custom” home. Each and every one of you listened to us, responded to us and ultimately, completely satisfied us. Thank you for a truly wonderful home building experience from start to finish… and beyond.

Jessica and Vinny Perretta
We are absolutely thrilled with our new home. Our experience working with Brighton (Lars, Cindy, Alicia, Alysse) was amazing and they were all so very helpful, talented, and professional. Every question, comment, or concern we had during the selection process was answered effectively and efficiently. Our home turned out beautiful because of all of the guidance we had throughout the entire process. Brighton made us feel like we were very important clients and took care of us beyond our expectations. We cannot say “Thank You” enough!

The Pyles Family
This is a small token of our deep appreciation for all you have done to help make our dream home come true. This IS our dream home and we have been so blessed to have been given this opportunity to live in a home as beautiful and amazing as this. Thank you for absolutely everything; your time, patience, kindness, generosity, etc. We count ourselves as the luckiest of families to not only be homeowners, but Brighton homeowners!

Michael Polk
Congratulations to Lars on 13 Parade of Homes awards! All Brighton homeowners should feel proud to live in one of your communities. Great design, great construction and great customer service!

Bob and Gail Bacon
…From the onset of our home purchasing discussions we enjoyed the professional and competent manner in which you and your staff conducted yourselves. Equally important was the friendly and courteous demeanor that all of you exhibited and the generosity afforded to us throughout the design and building discussions. We couldn’t be happier with your highly skilled approach to the design. We consider the Brighton Homes team to have distinguished themselves, in our opinion, as the Best-In-Class. Please accept our gratitude for your organizational team approach and successful execution of our new home construction. It is easy to see why Brighton Homes is a premier builder. We feel very fortunate to have found you and your organization, and look forward to spending many years in our beautiful home and community.

Shannon and Patrick Carlson
We wanted to thank you for building our awesome home. From the first time we met you, you made us feel like family. Building a home was super stressful, but you always eased our minds and made the process so much easier. Thank you for being so easy to work with, for taking the time to explore ideas and explain things. Lars is a fabulous architect and we are glad we listened to your suggestions. We appreciate your humor and talent, it is people like you Lars who make Brighton shine. Thank you for everything, we are immensely enjoying our home!

Michael D Pieters
…All I really have to say is WOW, I am practically speechless! We are blown away by the house. It is gorgeous and the exterior colors you chose!! AMAZING!! We were having so much trouble picking them, and you nailed it! You have such a talent, we are so lucky to have had the chance to work with you. It was so much fun watching the whole mystery unravel, every time we were on our way to visit the house we would wonder what would be different, what it would look like and every time we were in awe! Believe it or not I am actually a little sad that it is almost over (but I am way more excited that it is!!), it was just so exciting seeing all the new changes every week. We will never be able to thank you enough for helping our dream become a reality!

The Voit Family
Before we get all settled in, we wanted to drop you a note to convey our gratitude to you and your staff for all of your time and consideration. We`d especially like to give a big thank you to Roberta and Brandon. Their support and professional attitude throughout construction has been greatly appreciated. I`m also sure there are many other people that worked behind the scene who are also deserving….

Paul Robertson
I wanted to let everyone at Brighton know how much we appreciate the quick and friendly responses we have gotten from the contractors and superintendent. It has made out new home which we love, that much better, Thank you very much!

Jay and Stacey Sonnenberg Family
…We are loving our beautiful new home and appreciate the easy experience of building with your organization.

Bitia, Tracey and Tyler Carr
Thank you for showing us once again that we made the right choice in purchasing one of your homes. We appreciate you standing behind your product two years after it was no longer your responsibility. We are extremely pleased with our flooring!

LeAnn and Juan Mora
I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for the “superstar” treatment when I came up to choose the finishes for the house. Juan and I are very excited about our new home and we are so glad we went with Brighton. I still can`t get over the care you give to your home buyers. Thank you again for everything!

Shari Johnston
Thank you so very much for building such a beautiful home for me! Thank you for all your insight and for putting your craftsmanship touch into my home.

Ross and Christine Corthell
I just wanted you to know that Christine and I think very highly of Brandon. He has been great to work with. He`s been very responsive to our question/issues and his passion for quality is clear. The house is beautiful and Christine and I are starting to get moved in and are very excited for our future there. Sometime in early December, we are going to host an open house and are hopeful the Brighton folks responsible for helping us on this project will be able to make it. Thanks again for helping us design such a cool floor plan. I tell anyone who will listen to me that one of the true hidden values of building with Brighton has been the design process. Your input and energy into our property was amazing and we thank you.

Brenda Duggan
I am writing to you to make certain my praises are heard all the way up the chain of command for the outstanding staff you have assembled at Brighton. The service and responsiveness I received from day one has been unparalleled. There simply is no matter or situation that I could advise you and your team to improve on…nothing. Brighton is genuinely one of the few service providers that I have run into that extends truly platinum service and should be recognized as such!

David and Erikka Froshiesar
We were looking for a beautiful home in a community our children would love. This was not as easy as we thought it might be with all of the choices available. We are so happy to have discovered the Paramount community and Brighton Homes. For us it was readily apparent that this is no ordinary subdivision and Brighton Homes is no ordinary builder. You can tell when a company is based on strong values.

Beverly Lukasik
It has been two years since we moved in, and I still get regular compliments from friends and family. We love our home, and there isn`t a thing we would have done differently!more
