  • I purchased my house in Fox Grape Addition, from the builder, John Marion. I have been pleased with the quality and the value of my choice. John has been prompt and attentive to any problems I had, which were few. I consider John as a friend and a quality builder.

  • In 2008 John Marion Custom Homes, LLC built an estate type home for the original home owner from which we purchased in 2010 located on the Payne Stewart Golf Course in Branson, MO. This home was built from a drawing and article contained in Southern Living Magazine from which construction drawings were obtained. John Marion then built this home for the owner with flair and quality throughout. This nearly 5,000 ft2, all brick, two-level home was nestled into the woods which abuts to the Payne Stewart Golf Course which abounds with club house amenities and wild life. Structural soundness and an abundance of energy efficient insulation are a trademark of John Marion Custom Homes. From the Ozark stone terracing of the yard to the hardwood flooring with soaring ceilings, granite-stainless steel appliances and the fine finished cabinetry throughout, this home is truly a show-piece for the Ozarks.

  • From start to finish, John Marion Custom Homes helped turn our dream home into a reality. As first time home builders, John walked us through the entire process from planning our design to the finishing touches. His experience was evident in his ability to oversee the construction of our home. He was available to answer our questions, address our concerns, or meet on site during the entire building process. We absolutely love our new home and are very thankful that we had an experienced and knowledgeable builder on our side.

  • We purchased a home from John Marion in May, 2006. We had been looking for almost a year and found the quality of construction in his homes to be outstanding. We are extremely pleased with not only the home but the service John has provided after the sale. His promptness in returning phone calls and addressing questions is exemplary. John Marion’s professionalism made our home buying experience smooth and problem free.

  • John Marion built us a beautiful home filled with dynamic ceilings, a gorgeous master suite and impressive tile-work. We were very anxious about buying a house, because of so many potential pitfalls. John Marion made the process much easier than we could have ever imagined. The only stress we had was picking the shade of hardwood floors. We were impressed by John's professionalism and commitment to building a quality house. He was also committed to getting little things fixed during the first year in our home. He stands by his work. We recommend John Marion to anyone that asks for a reputable and dependable builder.

  • We interviewed several area contractors for our remodel. John immediately stood out in his organization, professionalism and interest in understanding who we were and how we wanted to use the spaces differently in the house. We had a vision but lacked the time or experience to manage the project on our own. The use of the app to help streamline decision tracking and communications was perfect for us to connect and keep the ball rolling as I travel frequently for work. When our wish list outpaced our wallet, John was amazing at understanding what was most important to us and in guiding us through alternatives that achieved the desired outcome within our budget. The relationships John has with suppliers and subcontractors was evident in their responsiveness during the bid process and reliability in delivering on the project timeline. Savings from discounts with many suppliers allowed us to offset the contracting costs. John was patient with us and flexible to changes we requested. Through the process John was our advocate and counselor. While a modest project we felt like million dollar home builders. We didn't hesitate to reach out to John a year later when we were ready to start planning our next project. Our house is finally our home thanks to John.

  • John was on time & under budget of his original quote. He is the utmost professional keeping in constant communication with you. All the subcontractors that work for him also are extremely professional & friendly and have nothing but great things to say about John Marion. He undertook a remodeling project on our home that involved 3 generations of women ( one a teenager) trying to make decisions. He had quite a bit of patience, and always had good design ideas when we couldn't all agree on one thing. Having built our house 13 years ago our only regret in hiring John Marion is that we didn't hire him 13 years ago to build our house!!

  • John Marion Construction builds beautiful, well constructed homes. He is very easy to work with and I love his attention to details. I would not hesitate referring him to family or friends wanting to build.
