“Our Richmond Hill home on the water is the last house we plan to build as we settle into retirement, so we wanted to make sure that we got it right. We spent 38 years in Charlotte but love Savannah and decided to make Coastal Georgia our home in 2014. We enjoy being outdoors and love watching the birds and dolphins so we wanted to be on the water and chose to buy our lot at Waterways and selected Ted Flake of Keller Enterprises as our builder.
When we met Ted, it was apparent that he and his team take pride in their work and want to build custom quality homes. We especially appreciated Ted’s flexibility and responsiveness. There were a few times when what was on the blueprint wasn’t optimal in reality. They always worked through it with us, coming up with solutions on the fly. Ted and his craftsmen made several suggestions to make our dream home even better.
It is important to us that our house fits into the environment here and that it will have an enduring appeal. Whenever we were out and about and I saw something we liked – from houses in South Carolina to the perfect stairway – we took a photo on our phones and showed it to the Keller Enterprise team to help them create the style we wanted. We enjoy having family and friends from Charlotte visiting us so comfortable guest accommodation is vital. We have three bedrooms and baths in an upstairs living space and we enjoy our privacy in the master suite downstairs which has amazing views – we always enjoy the sunsets here.
Now that we are in our new home, we are very satisfied with the quality of the construction and the craftsmanship is excellent. It is not a showcase but a comfortable home and everything we dreamed of! We are so happy that we listened to the people who referred us to Keller Enterprises”

“We moved from Missouri to Richmond Hill and initially were renting a house here. Our agent introduced us to the Plantation community and to Ted Flake – and we are so happy he did. From the beginning, it was clear that he was the custom builder we were looking for. From our first telephone conversation with Ted he was friendly, knowledgeable and understood what we needed. We wanted a house with a lot of downstairs bedrooms and we saw a floor plan online that we liked. Ted made this become a reality and everything went really, really smoothly and within the timescale he promised. He was always personally available to us and while respecting our opinions was happy to make suggestions about the design if we needed some guidance. We like our home to have a comfortable and relaxed vibe; somewhere our family can just hang out and everyone involved in our building really understood this. Ted kept a close eye on his team of contractors, regularly checking on their progress – it really felt like a joint project between our family and them. When we were waiting for the appraisal our 12 year old son said ‘if that man can’t see the value in Mr. Flake’s work then he must be stupid’ which just about sums it up for us. We would recommend Keller Enterprises to anyone without hesitation – our home is perfect for us thanks to them”.
“We had been renting in Richmond Hill and decided to buy some land and custom build our home in the Waterford Landing area, outside the city limits. We had heard good things about Ted Flake from homeowners who had worked with him but we interviewed three builders before committing to one company. We chose Keller Enterprises for lots of reasons:
- Firstly, they had a floor plan that was very close to our vision of the perfect home for our family which needed very few modifications. We have four children – three are at school so we had special requests including a vanity room for our 17 year old daughter
- Secondly, we were able to view houses that they had built in our area which gave us a great deal of reassurance
- Thirdly, they gave us a solid price and we know from their reputation that they will not go over budget
- Fourthly, Ted Flake really listens to what we want – and not just to me as the man of the house. He is very receptive to our requests and had long conversations with my wife about the kitchen cabinets early on in the building process – which was not a priority for me at that time!
Finally, it is hard to define but I am retired military and working with Keller Enterprises just feels right – I have learned to trust my gut instinct over the years and I knew that if anyone could meet the target date of completion of our house then Ted Flake could – and he actually beat our deadline!”
“We met Ted Flake through the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill and were impressed with his reputation and examples of the work he has done in the area. We wanted to invest in a high quality new kitchen and could not be more delighted. Our original kitchen was installed when our home on Buckland Hall Road was builtover 20 years ago and as we love to cook and entertain, it was showing serious signs of wear and tear. We wanted a warm wood look which fits into the open plan nature of our home living area. Nothing was too much trouble for the team at Keller Enterprises and the attention to detail and quality of work was stunning. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any renovation or new construction.”
