In fact, Phil and his partner Greg Tollis personally do the final touch-up in each home. Although the opportunity for becoming a high production builder has presented itself over the years, Goetzmann Custom Homes has remained loyal to their roots. They are dedicated to maintaining one of the highest standards of finish work in the area and keeping our customers happy. We have also found that by being a small builder we are able to keep the process more efficient.
At age 15, Phil began his homebuilding passon when he spent his summers working as an apprentice for a local builder. By 21, Phil was a licensed Contractor. Greg and Phil met years ago while pursuing their passion for constructing beautiful homes, eventually becoming Colorado Springs Custom Home Builders.
Phil Goetzmann is modest, soft-spoken, intelligent professional with a sense of humor. Connecting to his client’s vision and needs, he listens and takes their direction. Phil has a unique ability to conceptualize with foresight into the home well before construction begins. Unlike many of the larger Colorado Springs custom homebuilders, Phil and Greg are personally involved through the entire process building your new home.
Greg defines his personal expertise in the partnership as more of a behind-the-scenes superintendent. Greg feels they are blessed with the same craftsmen working with Goetzmann Homes year after year.
Phil and Greg understand success is more than exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail; it is Attitude, Pride, and a Team Approach. Phil and Greg have a strong commitment to their clients to not only provide the quality workmanship, on time and on budget completions but most importantly: open communication throughout the planning and building process.
As a recognized and respected builder in the communities of Flying Horse and Wolf Ranch, Phil and Greg have won numerous awards. from The Parade of Homes, “Best overall house” to MAME, the prestigious Marketing and Merchandising Excellence awards in the construction industry for first place in “Best Architectural Design” and the prestigious “Best New Home – Over 1,000,000” for one of their custom homes here in Colorado Springs.
“We want to convey to our clients that we are always here for them. If there is anything we can do during the process to make them more comfortable, we will do it. This translates through everyone in our company.”
