"We can't begin to describe our happiness and our great association with the entire Gentry Group! We are two time house builders with Gentry ad have absolutely loved the building process (obviously, since we have done it twice). We believe we have an exceptional home, both in terms of quality and comfort, and we love the peace and serenity of Gentry East. As customers, the service we have continuously received from the entire Gentry Group- is, in our opinion, second to none. Through the years we have encouraged friends and acquaintances to explore Gentry East and the Gentry team and we would make that same recommendation today!"

"I bought my very first home from the Gentry Group in 1992 and Pat Figg was my real estate agent at the time.  I recall how nervous I was about purchasing my first home and how informative and patient she was with me.  My cat Lucy and I now live in our second Gentry Home that backs against trees and a nature habitat filled with numerous species of birds, a deer once in a while and very energetic squirrels.  I call this our “Nature Channel” and Lucy’s high definition TV.  Gentry East feels a lot more like a community than in any other place I have ever lived.  In the afternoons, it is common to see residents take tranquil walks with their families, friend, and pets, greeting each other on the street and stopping to chat or comment about a garden display.  It is a joy to walk the neighborhood and see the love of nature that people display in their gardens and flower bed creations.  The homes are beautiful and I particularly like the “environmentally conscious” strategy that Gentry is moving towards in building and designing these new energy efficient homes and in preserving protected green spaces throughout the subdivision.

“The construction process was terrific! We were consulted and informed every step of the way and I was very efficient. Nothing was left to chance-the organization and attention to detail was impressive. I appreciated the opportunity to consult with an interior designer at the same time we were making for construction. It made our home a very special place that reflected our wishes and the care and thoughtfulness of everyone involved.”

"The Gentry East neighborhood is a great mix of young people to retirees! What could be better than that?! On a personal note, we love the light, bright open living areas of our home. And, of course, the screened porch, decks and woods! We discovered that living here offers an easier and more comfortable way of living. Great planning by the Gentry Group!"

“I enjoy living in Gentry East due to the diversity of it’s residents and their professional backgrounds. The area affords interesting vistas and is properly maintained. Another plus is the availability of the builders to pursue resolutions to any construction issues that may arise, no matter how small. The neighbors are friendly, but not overly so, and the different types of architecture, exteriors and interiors, make the area pleasing to the eye.”

“We have been pleased with our Gentry East home location since March of 2007 when we moved to Bloomington from Virginia to retire. We started our good experience with Gentry several months earlier with very positive, customer oriented and knowledgeable support from the real estate staff and builders, who helped us arrange for some last minute custom construction details. There were very few minor problems found during our first year in the house, and we can’t say enough about the quick response we have received to our issues!Truly a great experience, based on our experience with other houses in the past. Gentry chooses its subcontractors well, and it pays off! We love the house, including its great design, impressive high quality construction, and energy efficient features. We love the wooded lot too! And the subdivision location close to town as well as nature. Thank you Gentry! We are looking forward to many years here!”

"The Gentry team helped us to find the perfect lot combining the natural beauty of a wooded countryside with the convenience of being just a few minutes from everything! Working with the design coordinator and plan coordinators that are offered allowed us to take one of their plans and modify it with our own ideas. we could not be happier with our quality built home and would highly recommend the Gentry Group if you are looking to build or buy. Ruth & I found the entire staff to be professional and dedicated to helping us build the home we really wanted."

“We have a beautiful home in Gentry East! We had a house we just loved, but it was not one of the floor plans that Gentry commonly builds. So, Gentry helped us develop the plan we really wanted to build. Pat Figg was wonderful working with us to find the perfect lot for our new home. We have lived in Bloomington for 50 years and she is the BEST Realtor we have ever worked with. She is a very caring person. Also, Ben Beard and his staff worked hard to get things just right. Once building started, the entire crew was on to of things and always available for our list of questions. It as wonderful working with Cathy Cooper, the design coordinator, who guided us through the material selection process to make the home complete. The neighborhood is very friendly and all the woods make it just the perfect place to call home.”
