Family Testimonials




“We can't say enough wonderful things about our Kirk Cornelius home. The quality workmanship is superior. Every detail was well thought out. We fell in love with this house the minute we walked in the door and we love it even more as we begin our retirement years! Kirk is more than a builder, he becomes a friend. A man of his word and we highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the perfect luxury home! Thank you Kirk for the house of our dreams!”

“When we decided to build our new home at Stonecrest Farm, we wanted an experienced, high quality builder who was also a great communicator. Kirk Cornelius exceeded our expectations. Quality workmanship and great teamwork resulted in a beautiful new home for our family. Kirk made our building experience problem and stress free, and he stayed on budget. His attention to detail and his fine finish work are the hallmarks of a Cornelius-built home. We highly recommend him.”

“We lived three hundred miles away and were looking to retire in Kansas City. After driving around and seeing several homes we liked, we went back and asked "Who was the builder" It was frequently Kirk Cornelius. We contacted Kirk and toured one of his homes and immediately noticed the quality of the workmanship and attention to detail that was evident.

Since we lived so far away, we needed someone we could trust. We asked our real estate agent, interior decorator, and our architect. They all commented positively, and said Kirk was among the best, if not the best builder in the city. They told us that he worked on only a limited number of exclusive custom houses a year, and that he supervised his sites daily.

We had found our builder! During the construction, Kirk more than lived up to his reputation for daily attention and supervision of every detail and adjustment, no matter how small. He kept us well informed of the construction and sent many photos of the site during construction through email, since the distance to the site kept us from visiting often. Kirk kept his pleasant, understanding attitude and his fierce dedication throughout the project while keeping to our budget - no small feat!

We felt very fortunate to have Kirk as our builder. He has become a dear friend and we had fun working with him. If we were to start all over, we would have no hesitation on calling Kirk again.

We wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend Kirk Cornelius to anyone planning to build their one-of-a-kind dream home.”

“Our selection of Kirk Cornelius to build our home was the easiest decision we've ever made. Countless tradesmen, suppliers, decorators and Realtors echo the same phrase over and over about Kirk, 'He's the best builder in Kansas City.' Kirk's years of experience, knowledge and honesty provided us with accurate estimates and time frames. He's always on the job, returns your calls and has great suggestions. Everybody said it and now we know it, Cornelius Homes are truly the best.”

Eric & Sheri Reynolds

“We moved into our home over four years ago and we still get people knocking on our door asking for the name of our builder. This makes us feel good and is the ultimate compliment to Cornelius Homes. We chose Kirk as a builder because he is both an architect and a builder who stresses quality and attention to detail every step of the way. Additionally, he builds fewer homes than most builders and was able to spend quality time with us as construction progressed. We found him honest and a man of his word. We are a big fan of Kirk and Cornelius Homes!”
