Below is a message we received from one of our families during the summer 2012 heat wave…

“Have I told you, We love our house!! We lost electric due to storm Tuesday. For 40 hours no a/c. House only got up to 76 degrees in August! Great insulation. Hope u 2 are good!”
Bobby Dyer

Mike built our custom home over 15 years ago, and we still love it!  He could not have been more accommodating, considerate and friendly, as he worked with us to build our first home.  It was a wonderful experience because he made sure it was so, and because of this, we would use him again.  We get calls all the time wondering if we would like to sell our house!  For a guaranteed pleasurable building experience, call Mike!

We bought our house from Mike Shadix in January 1991 in Wilshire Ridge Addition. It was essentially completed — lacking some inside details. Mike was very helpful to Hanna in telling her where she could find light fixtures, wallpaper, etc.

The house is sound and suits our needs very well. There have been some occasions where I called Mike for information regarding the plumbing and other matters and he has been gracious to provide answers — even though he had gotten out of the construction business for awhile.

We have found Mike and Vanessa to be honest, reliable, good friends and interested in helping the buyer in making decisions.

Best Regards,
Herb and Hanna Rodden

My home is currently being built in Triple Crown Meadow.  Mike has answered all of my questions in detail  from day one and it has been a completely pleasurable experience.    I have comparedfloorplans and features of other builders and find Triple Crown Meadow to provide a superior value.  I visit my future home often and the environment is always peaceful and quiet.  I have also found different times of day reveal a different beauty in the landscape and the breeze is always magnificent.  After talking with Mike on several occasions I am convinced that he is passionate about his work and his top priority is making sure that his buyers have a positive experience and love their homes.   I have no doubt that when my home is complete it will be a well-built, quality home in a wonderful community.

When we were looking for a builder ten years ago we were very fortunate to select Mike Shadix.  His years of experience in building houses and dealing with the needs and wants of families makeshim very knowledgeable about floor plans.  He gave us several good ideas when we were designing ours.  Mike was very easy to work with.

Max & Linda Patzak

I have  known Mike Shadix for approximately 15 years.  During that time he  has helped me build and sell approximately fifty plus homes.  Mike is a very honest, hard working and knowledgeable…I would highly recommend Mike.

Gene Furnish

I can “highly” recommend Mike as a quality home builder.  For 15 years (1976 – 1991) he and I worked together for Newman Homes – he as a partner and me as the bookkeeper/secretary.  He was diligent in checking the quality of work of the sub-contractors; and, he always made sure the buyer was a happy, satisfied customer.

In the years since, I have also observed the quality of the homes he and Vanessa built when he became the “builder.”   Mike is extremely competent and conscientious, as is Vanessa – I would recommend their homes to anyone.

I purchased a Mike Shadix home in the Warwick West Housing addition in North Oklahoma City in 1994.  It has been a wonderful home for my family.  Solid construction and beautiful amenities.  Mike and Vanessa are very easy people to work with and genuinely eager to please.  I would recommend the Shadix to anyone building a new home and would most definitely use them again if I ever built another home.

Beverly Johnson

I presently live in a home which the Shadix built for me approximately 15  years ago.  I have been extremely happy with my trouble-free home.  Both Vanessa and Mike are honest, dependable, and easy to work with.

Betty Duhme

I have never been so happy as I was in the house Mike and Vanessa built for me on Parkland Place.  I would still be there today if my health had allowed.

Margaret Ann Howard

Mike built a house for my husband, Patrick, and I when we first married in 1999.    Our experience with Mike as a builder was nothing less than extraordinary.  We were so fortunate to have chosen Mike to build our home.  The greatest compliment I believe would be that our home sold to the first person who looked at it for 98% of the asking price.  Mike pays so much attention to detail and works with good subcontractors.  We noticed throughout our building process, as we looked at other builder’s homes under construction, that ours far exceeded ordinary standards, whether framing, sheetrock, finish work, all the way to wallpaper.  We would recommend Mike Shadix to anyone considering a home in Triple Crown Meadow. We still call the home Mike built us “the cute house” and reminisce often about it and our great back porch. We truly believe Mike sets a standard for others to follow. We wish Mike and Vanessa the best in this new venture and feel Oklahoma City is fortunate to have him back building quality homes.

Sally & Patrick Glenn

Mike and Vanessa built our first home when we moved to Oklahoma City in 1992, and the experience was wonderful.  My wife was pregnant at the time, and Vanessa was wonderful in helping with all the details; we loved our home!  Due to military orders we were only in the house 19 months, but when we looked to build again in 2000, we contacted Mike and Vanessa to see if they would be interested, however at that time they were not building homes. We definitely would have talked with them again.  Our experiences with the Shadix’ have been very positive.

Dave & Karen Greer

Building a home with Mike and Vanessa was a very pleasant experience.  I was single at the time and was uncertain about the entire building process.  Mike was very patient and with his expert guidance we decided on a perfect house plan.  I never had trouble communicating with Mike and Vanessa.  They always returned phone calls promptly and kept me updated with what was happening next.  My home was completed on schedule and Mike and Vanessa were available after the sale to make sure that everything pleased me.

Mike and Vanessa are very honest and caring individuals.  They use quality materials and build a beautiful home for the best price.

I can truly say that building a home with them was fun!

Jane A.

Mike & Vanessa built a house for us in 1992 in Warwick West.  It was a pleasure working with them.  They made our experience building a house a lot of fun.  We lived in that house for 13 years and never had any problems.  I would highly recommend them and know they will do a great job and wish them much success.

Tim & Patti Jones

My husband and I were one of the first to buy a home from Mike when he first went out on his own.  We built our home in the Summit Place addition at NW 122 and Rockwell, OKC in 1989.  Mike was very hands on during the homebuilding process and always available to answer our countless questions.  He made homebuilding (something with a reputation for being an endless series of headaches) an exciting adventure.  If we wanted to make changes, Mike found a way to accommodate us with minimal disruption to the building process.  He built our 2200+ square foot home in 89 days!  Mike and Vanessa are kind, caring and compassionate people who will not build you a house, they will build you a home.

Melinda S. Johnson

We are smiles because we are very pleased with how everything is going (plus we are very smiley people anyway) 🙂  The house looks great and you and Steve have been a real pleasure to work with and very responsive to the 1,000’s of questions that we’ve had.  We were telling the Pacione’s the other night that it has been a great experience for us and that we endorse building with Mike Shadix in Triple Crown Meadow!

Jonathan & Candice Forte

Mike, I can’t believe it!  How are we so blessed to be working with you and your team?!  My wife really, really wanted cherry and I wanted her to have it yet you have already bent over backwards for us and I hated to demand anything, especially something so difficult to fix. It was just an honest mistake from an honest painter and how could I push you or him or demand anything like this? Then I get a call from your painter, and I tell you he is cut out of the same cloth as you, like all your contractors, it seems. What a team you have–these guys are Oklahoma’s best, I think he was genuine and completely honest, and a man that I knew cared about quality work. He apologized and took full responsibility, which I was impressed by. And he didn’t try to push any solution on us. He offered to re-do all the outer portions and to do a coat on the inner portions to make it match, and we agreed and were very thankful he was willing to go through the extra work to make it right! He is a good man and a good painter; my wife was really impressed as well and so thankful. And he mentioned that you were willing to replace all the cabinets if it came to that!!!  That is so impressive to us. Yes we really needed the cabinets to be right, but the fact that you were willing to do that still amazes us, because it sounds like you were each willing to do make it right on your own dime. I can’t tell you how amazed we’ve been with this whole experience. It’s been so much more than just getting a place to live!

From Adar and me both: THANK YOU!
Philip and Adar

To the entire Blue Ribbon family,

Thank you so much for all of the hard work your team put into making our house. We love this house and all the work and dedication has not gone unnoticed. This is our dream home and I know God brought us here and we feel blessed to have your company in a piece of that blessing. We wish you all the best and again we truly appreciate all that you’ve done to make our hopes and dreams into reality. Thank you!

The Buchanan Family

We have been in our new home for almost a year now and we couldn’t be happier! You can’t beat the views here in Crestview Farms and the schools are top notch! Mike and his team have been so professional and just phenomenal to work with. We feel like we couldn’t have made a better choice in finding our forever home!
