Tim Raredon has also been in the building business for several years. Tim has a real skill in business and working with people. "I just love it. I love meeting with customers and helping them turn their dreams into reality. I take great pride in my work." When asked how he and Bob decided to team up he replied "It just seemed like a good fit. Bob and I are both very driven and have a passion for working with people. We have similar views on how people should be treated and how a company should be run. We seem to compliment each other well. It only seemed natural that we team up to do something we love."
Bob and Tim's wives grew up together in Hudsonville, MI as close friends. It was through their wives that they met. They quickly learned they share many of the same values and characteristics. It was five years later that they would team up and begin building together under the name of Platinum Custom Homes, LLC. "Platinum is the rarest, most durable and most valuable precious metal you can find. It just seemed like a perfect description for the company our husband's were forming," said Amy Meringa.
Platinum begins its building process by finding out what the customer is looking for. They then work with a designer to ensure that practicality and costs are measured carefully. They work closely with each customer to ensure a pleasant home building experience every step of the way. "We realize we're not perfect, but at the end of the day we want our customers to be able to trust us. We want them to know that we will always do the right thing and deliver on what we've promised," says both Meringa and Raredon. On time, on budget and of the highest quality are absolutes in the home building business today. However, integrity, value, reputation and relationships are often overlooked. Platinum Custom Homes delivers on all of the above and is committed to building a company that will last for future generations! Platinum Custom Homes has a reputation for quality custom homes in every price range. From starter/entry level homes to executive estates, our commitment to each customer is the same. "On time, within budget and of the highest quality."
