What Our Customers Have to Say…

Before choosing Distinguished Homes by Mitch Hagen, we walked through countless newly constructed homes. After viewing a Mitch Hagen home, it was clear that the style, quality, and attention to detail was next level.

Mitch is kind-hearted, hard-working, honest, and humble. The process of building was painless and honestly enjoyable. Mitch was always easily accessible and communicated with us often. He allowed us to bring forth our creative ideas and was respectful of our wishes. Ultimately his team, with their superior craftmanship, created them beautifully.

We were grateful for Susan, the professional interior designer on Mitch’s team. She was intelligent, fun-loving, kind, and had the “design eye” we needed to secure the “theme” of the house. We cannot imagine what the finished product would have been like without her assistance. It was impressive to watch as our dream home went from a piece of paper to reality right before our eyes.

We certainly would recommend Mitch and his team of gifted sub-contractors. Mitch always wanted us to be happy with the finished product and he worked diligently to make that happen.

We adore our new home and are completely satisfied.

Mitch worked tirelessly to ensure that we loved our new home. Mitch was a good communicator, honest, considerate, hardworking, and has fantastic subcontractors. Everyone that we worked with on Mitch’s team was easy to work with, even with our VERY specific requirements. We challenged Mitch with some new ideas and his team rose to meet our expectations. As a result, we have a beautiful home, we are very appreciative to Mitch and his team for making it happen!


We decided on Distinguished Homes quickly after meeting Mitch. We were looking for a different home building experience from our first. Relationship, integrity, communication, and quality were values lacking in our first build, which all became transparent in our first meeting with Mitch. Experience and attention to detail are evident with Mitch and his team of subcontractors. Our relationship started as a business but has become a friendship. Mitch and Distinguished Homes will build your vision into a reality.

When we decided to build a new home, we knew that we did not want your average builder. We wanted an experienced builder with an eye for detail and uncompromising standards. We found that ( and much more! ) in Distinguished Homes by Mitch Hagen. From start to finish, Mitch was truly exceptional. We appreciated his knowledge and guidance throughout the process and found our construction “journey” to be much easier and enjoyable with Mitch at the helm. Mitch cared about every single detail that went into our home and the pride he takes in his work is apparent in the beautiful home we get to enjoy each and every day. If you are looking for the best builder the Rochester area has to offer, look no further than Distinguished Homes!


During our building process, we had a lot of people ask us, “isn’t building a house very stressful?” We answered that question the same every time, “Not with Mitch Hagen! He makes the process stress-free!” We honestly enjoyed every step of building with Mitch. We looked at building a house for a few years, checking out all the area builders and their work, and it all came back to Mitch. The quality, details, and communication are unmatched with Distinguished Homes! Mitch found us the perfect lot and built us the perfect home.

We could not have imagined or asked for a better building experience with Mitch! His attention to detail, high standards, helpful input, and amazing subcontractors created our dream home and we couldn’t be happier. All the subcontractors that worked on our house were courteous and knowledgeable about their craft. I can’t give Distinguished Homes enough praise. We loved working with Mitch and love our house 🙂

Kaitlin and Corey 

Thank you for a great building experience!!  You hear of so many bad experiences and we did not have one problem.  You were there the whole step of the way with input and advice.  You heard what we wanted and what we had to say.  We enjoyed the fact that we could joke with you and your subcontractors.  We stopped by every day and always felt comfortable talking with the crews.  The subcontractors you use are outstanding.  You stopped every day and made sure things were to your standards.  You will always be highly recommended by us and will always be our friend.  Thank you for a great friendship and a wonderful house. 

We love this house! 

Joe and Barb

We cannot say enough about Mitch and his sub-contractors.  His communication skills are superb.  He is patient, humble, considerate, and experienced.  Rare qualities in a contractor.

The quality of the home is evident everywhere you look.  

Mitch gets FIVE Stars from us!

Al and Gin

My wife and I love our new home! I want to extend my compliments to Distinguished Homes by Mitch Hagen for the quality of the workmanship and to Mitch for taking us through the countless hours to figure out the best options to suit our family’s needs and budget. We couldn’t be happier with how everything was taken care of by Mitch from the lining of people up to get the job done, to the follow-through to make sure it was done correctly!

This was our second home that we built, and I can’t begin to even tell you the difference in working with Distinguished Homes by Mitch Hagen to the other company. It was always very reassuring to be able to send Mitch a text or call him and have an answer within hours. We also appreciated the fact that the people Mitch recommended stood behind their work and were willing to take time out of their day to talk and explain things to help us understand where things were and make sure they were done how we would like to see things done. It made us feel like they really did care about what they were doing for us.

We have lived in the house for a little over 4 months, and simply put we would strongly recommend Distinguished Homes by Mitch Hagen to anyone looking for a quality home!

Thanks again, Distinguished Homes!

Chris and Jenny

Honest and hard-working. He will always give you his very best! I would have him work on my home anytime.


Thank you Mitch for building our home as if it were your own! We interviewed several builders and our meeting with you was so refreshing! You listened and cared…about us, our finances, and what would be best for our home. You made suggestions and corrections to our house plans that nobody else had even noticed! Your customer service was phenomenal before, during, and even after completion. You always kept us informed of the process and what to expect next. We started this process by calling you our builder…and now we call you our friend! Thank you again, Mitch! We will always refer our friends and clients to Distinguished Homes by Mitch Hagen!

Tiffany and Jason

If you want an honest hardworking builder to work with, Mitch is your man! What I was most impressed with was Mitch’s working relationship with all his sub-contractors. They all had respect for our new home and delivered quality work on schedule. Our home was completed on budget and ahead of schedule. He has been in communication after completion to attend to our needs. Thanks, Mitch!
