This personal attention to every project is what truly distinguishes Distinctive Custom Homes amongst the area's premier contractors and has nurtured our trusted name within the Chicago suburban residential market.

At the heart of Distinctive Custom Homes is an effectual partnership of Bob Salm and Jamie Childs, which is based on more than three decades of friendship and a wealth of experience in the real estate industry. Having grown up in Chicago's North Shore suburbs, Bob and Jamie together have fashioned a winning philosophy: provide superior quality on each and every project using the toughest of standards and one on one interaction with the customer. This personal attention – Distinctive Custom Homes does not rely on superintendents or project managers – allows for a true collaboration with clients so that the finished product reflects our homeowner's personal choices.

When you contact us, we will make a complimentary appointment to visit your home or site and share ideas and the ultimate goals for the project. In most instances, we will then generate a preliminary cost estimate, or at the very least, determine preliminary budgets within days of that initial meeting.

So why not contact Bob or Jamie at Distinctive Custom Homes and see why we say "We are with you every step of the way from concept to completion!"
