We are pleased to endorse and recommend Fielek Builders to you, without reservation. We originally engaged Julie Fielek and her company to build our home in 1998. We found Ms. Fielek to be incredibly professional, yet quite easy with which to work. Not only were we completely satisfied with our new home, but the project came in under budget!
We were initially concerned at the prospect of building a home, as we had heard many horror stories of fights and angst. In fact, a dear friend was building a home (with a different builder) at the same time. As we were taking occupancy, he was dealing with a lien on his property, a padlock on his door, and a builder who would not return his calls! Needless to say, we experienced no trauma or untold difficulties. Even, in fact, as we made modest changes to our plan. Julie’s subcontractors mirrored her professionalism and were delightful individuals with whom to work. Their attention to detail and quality resulted in many features that friends and visitors still compliment when they visit. She manages them well, and represents a high quality standard in setting her expectations with them. We were so pleased with our building experience that a few years after our original construction, we engaged Julie again to “finish” our walk-out basement. Once again, we found the quality of the subcontractors outstanding and the price to be quite reasonable. We are equally satisfied with the completed product and enjoy the home even more so. Finally, we just recently engaged Julie for a third time for some very modest renovations, which are nearing completion. She has once again, been a pleasure with whom to work, and the outcome has met our satisfaction and expectation.
We suspect you will find Julie and her company to offer you a pleasant home building process and an outstanding finished product.

To Whom it May Concern:
The Slavick Company is the project manager of a partnership redeveloping the former Jeffries Homes West public housing project. Our redevelopment efforts included the construction of 281 new rental units and 101 for-sale homes. The for-sale homes include single family-homes, townhouse units in four and ten-unit buildings and duplex buildings.
After several false-starts with other builders, we finally met with Julie, Matt and Wendy Fielek and forged a partnership to construct the for-sale component of our project. During the past three years, Fielek Enterprises has proven their ability to work cooperatively with the city agencies, subcontractors, the owners and sales team.
While there are always complication and hurdles with any construction project, Fielek Enterprises is able to resolve these short-term problems and has been delivering the homes on time and under budget. The purchasers (and their independent inspectors when used) have been very pleased with the quality of their homes. Fielek has shown their willingness to work with the homeowners to resolve any issues, even those outside the scope of their home warranty.
In short, I would highly recommend Fielek Enterprises for any construction project.

To Whom It May Concern:
As Owner’s Representative and principle designer of the Michigan Area United Methodist Church Ministry Center in North Lansing Michigan I was particularly interested in finding a contractor who was personable, competent accessible and responsive. Fielek was one of four contractors I interviewed. I was especially impressed with their cooperative spirit and attitude of flexibility as well as approaching this project in a spirit of partnership.
This project was to renovate and build out a 7,700 square foot commercial office and meeting center. As Always, but particularly with faith based organizations, budget management to outcomes was a constant aspect of this project, Matt and Julie worked hard to help us identify those potential ‘budget busting’ elements and made affordable alternatives available to us (both vendors and product) while enhancing the overall appearance of the space and not endangering the schedule.
This project came with a very time sensitive element – transitioning from leased space. Our construction start was delayed more than a month by plan reviewer availability and a couple of detailed architectural resolutions which had to be negotiated. Fielek was able to make up nearly all this time through tighter coordination of the trades, regular on-site management and ongoing conversations with the DeWitt Charter Township Building Department and its inspectors.
The project was completed in fine form and after occupancy of six months my client still feels their vision for the space had been realized. It was success due in large measure to Fielek’s construction management skills, industry experience and flexibility. I have appreciated and enjoyed working with Matt and Julie. I heartily recommend them as an excellent general contractor worthy of your serious consideration.
I am Managing Shareholder of the law firm, and write this letter of reference on behalf of Fielek Builders, LLC, and its members, Julie Fielek, Matt Fielek and Wendy Hoover. I have known them for many years, and experienced their work first hand on many occasions.
Our firm moved to a new building this year. We retained Fielek Group Builders as our construction manager for the project. It involved assisting in designing the layout for the 15,000 square foot space to accommodate the needs of our firm, reviewing the construction plans for accuracy, and managing the construction as it progressed. The job went smoothly and ahead of schedule. Our office building also commented to us about how wonderful it had been to work with Julie and Wendy on the project. You should also know that beyond the routine construction work, both Julie and Wendy have a real eye for decorating. It is difficult for a group of lawyers to get together to review and select paints, carpeting, flooring and furniture. Julie and Wendy presented a couple of options, making it easy for the group to make a quick decision.
In addition to the work done for the law firm, I have also retained Julie and Wendy on several occasions for major remodeling of my home. Again, the excellent results say it all.
I would highly recommend Fielek Group Builders, LLC for your construction project. They are reputable, conscientious, and ethical.
If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
One year ago today, on December 1, 2012, Fielek Builders broke ground on what would become our new home. Today we stand at the end of our driveway viewing with pride a beautiful house that was built with craftsmanship and attention to detail that is not often seen. The years of homebuilding experience that Julie and Matt Fielek possess shows in our Arts and Crafts style ranch home. Julie and Matt are not only excellent building contractors who strive to satisfy the wishes of the homeowners, they also use subcontractors who are top-notch craftsmen. This results in a building team that has produced a home that exceeded our expectations.
Building a home is an expensive proposition and it is important that the future home owner has confidence in the integrity and ability of the builde. We were able to build this home on time and on budget. From the initial meeting, to planning meetings, the many walkthroughs during the building process to the completion we had a comfortable and stress free relationship with Julie and Matt. The very few changes we requested were handled promptly and with our wishes coming first, although they were always willing to give us their opinion and input, which we greatly appreciated. We have been in our house for 3 months and every person who has visited has loved it and been amazed at its craftsmanship, beauty and functionality.
The last point we would like to stress is that when building a house, you get what you pay for. We spoke with other builders who claimed they could build a house of comparable size for less money. But if you want to actually enjoy the experience, we strongly recommend Fielek Builders.
Dear Potential Fielek Builders Customers:
Upon learning of our impending transfer to Michigan, we looked at building a home rather than purchasing an existing home on the market. We originally approached Fielek Builders for the project because they offered the type of home in the location we were looking. With complete honesty, Julie let us know that as much as she would like the project, she explained that Fielek Builders would not be able to meet the timeline we needed.
It was this integrity approach that led us back to Fielek Builders in search of a contractor to complete the remodeling project in the home we purchased. After week of receiving quotes from several remodeling contractors, we reached out to Julie about our project. Julie immediately remembered us and agreed to come to the house to scope out the work.
Even though Julie’s bid for the project was not the lowest, confidence in the integrity, ability of the builder and the manner in which Julie sat with us to explain every cost, made choosing Fielek Builders an easy one.
The process from bid to completion was comfortable and stress free. Like every project, there were changes due to issues discovered within the house and design changes from us. These issues and changes were handled promptly and with our wishes coming first, although they were always willing to give us their opinion and professional input, which we greatly appreciated.
Julie’s subcontractor, Patrick Swain, mirrored her professionalism and was delightful with whom to work. The craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality resulted in many features that friends and visitors still compliment when they visit.
The outcome has exceeded our expectations and the Fielek team has become part of the family. We are pleased to endorse and recommend Fielek Builders to you, without reservation.
To Whom It May Concern:
It is my pleasure to confirm the University’s use and satisfaction with Fielek Group Builders LLC and to offer our endorsement and recommendation of them.
The company made a highly competitive bid to renovate and update an approximate 20,000 sq. ft. facility for office , conference, and meeting space. The final product was opened to rave reviews at a ribbon-cutting and “naming” ceremony in which many of the university supporters commented on the excellent work that had been done.
There are many characteristics of Fielek Group Builders LLC, not the least of which is the ease of working with the principals, Julie and Matt Fielek. We felt they were partners in our project rather than contractors. We were especially impressed with the following:
The caliber and quantity of sub-contractors available to Fielek Group Builders LLC was impressive. Workmanship was outstanding, and it was apparent the subcontractors had great respect for Fielek Group Builders LLC and the work standards expected.
As a not-for-profit, we were particularly appreciative of their budget sensitivity, enabling us to complete the project within budget.
Our project had particular time sensitivity and they delivered project completion as promised.
They dealt quite well with changes and minor modifications that emerged during the project, always demonstrating flexibility, cooperation, and good humor.
Their follow-up processes enabled them to be two steps ahead of the university as we were nearing project completion, lessening anxiety, and allowing for smooth attention to “punch list” items.
We anticipate we will use Fielek Group Builders LLC for additional projects at the university and have concluded they have significant capacity to successfully tackle small and large projects alike.
If we can be of further assistance, please contact us.
