"Our building experience was fun and exciting with Carey. He worked with us on several design changes we wanted and we ended up with a high-quality custom home we love. The high quality of workmanship shows throughout the house. We have received many, many compliments on our home. If we ever wanted to build again, Carey would definitely be our builder."

"My wife and I decided to build a new home. We asked a good friend who is a real estate agent for recommendations as to good builders in the Quad Cities. Heartland Builders was one of five that were suggested. We submitted architectural plans to each of the five builders and eventually sat down with each individually and discussed the plans and their bids. Our meeting with Carey Nowack of Heartland Builders gave us a feeling of someone who, not only knew his trade, but was also straightforward and honest. He suggested creative ideas to our drawn-up plans and also provided cost saving modifications without sacrificing the design that we wanted. We awarded the bid to Carey and in the five month building process we found him to be absolutely great to work with. All of his subcontractors were quality people. Carey is very organized and was very accessible throughout the build to answer questions and deal with problems. Upon completion we had MidAmerican Energy conduct an energy audit test of our home and ours tested within the top 10% of energy-efficient homes. This qualified us for a substantial rebate and also a sizable federal tax credit. We would highly recommend Carey Nowack and Heartland Builders to anyone looking for a quality home builder."   Ed and Carole Isaac, Port Byron Il.

"We recently built a new townhome with Carey. He helped us plan our home by being very sensitive to our individual needs. We were very pleased with the quality products he used and the generous allowances provided for cabinets, counter tops, etc. During the building process Carey was always accessible and pleasant to deal with. We continue to enjoy a friendship with Carey."

Through the buying process, we were very impressed with Carey's professionalism and dedication to ensure our needs were met. Since the purchase, Carey has exceeded our expectations in customer service. If there was a small adjustment or fix needed, Carey quickly resolved the situation timely; and has always been very accessible and responsive. He is very easy to work with and truly works for the homeowner. We are extremely happy with our new home!

"We bought a spec house from you on Eagle Ridge road almost 11 years ago now (time flies). We have been looking at some other homes for sale in the highland green subdivision with the goal of getting something right on the golf course. As we have looked, what I have discovered is that you are a home building or design genius and I haven’t been able to find anything I like nearly as much as I like what you built. You are clearly very strategic on where you invest the home building dollars and they actually do make a difference. From the abundance and quality of the kitchen cabinets, the counters, the way the house flows and the openness, the size of the master and master closet, and the overall quality of the finishes, I just can’t say enough about all the magic touches. They are the things that you use and enjoy every day - and I’m having a hard time thinking about sacrificing them!"

​~ Michele Simpson, Bettendorf IA

"We were going through open houses in the ValleyWynds area looking for some ideas to renovate our current home. We walked through a house built by Carey Nowack and fell in love with it.  Carey was so easy to work with; we found the building of our house to be a very positive and enjoyable experience. We really loved the fact that we were able to pick out everything before we broke ground; this allowed Carey to give us a very accurate quote on the price of our new home. Carey stuck to the prices and the only additional costs we incurred in the building process were if we decided to add more features (for example, we added french doors for our formal living room).   We are extremely happy with the house. We would highly recommend Carey Nowack as a builder to all our friends and family!"   ~ Bruce and Sharon Tinsman, Bettendorf IA
