Since 1989, we've been providing the Kansas City metro area with the finest homes at a REASONABLE VALUE.

History

Founded in 1989, SAB Homes has proudly served the greater Kansas City area with some of the finest homes at a reasonable value.  One of our central goals is to provide you, the home owner, a positive home building experience.

We are proud to be celebrating our 30th Anniversary this year.

Since 1989, SAB Homes has been building beautiful, distinctive, single-family and multi-family homes with long-lasting value and style. As a design/build construction company, we are able to offer a truly custom and unique experience. Exquisitely designed, SAB Homes can be found in 15 communities throughout the Kansas City metro area.

Building homes is a very personal experience, not to be taken lightly. Through the leadership of Scott Bamesberger, our team works to provide the best experience possible for all of our buyers. Whether they are buying a $300,000 home or customizing a million dollar home, each buyer is equally important. The most valuable thing we offer is quality and customer service. Each project is updated daily by our field superintendents, providing our homebuyers and subcontractors the absolute latest information on the progress of every home. Our strict approach to monitoring construction progress has resulted in fewer delays and errors; creating an overall enjoyable experience for all involved.

In the field and in the office, we have an impressive team with years of experience and a commitment to quality and excellence. We have a complete design studio, where you can see and touch everything from carpet to faucets to tile – all in one space. One of our in-house certified designers will guide you during the selection process and throughout the build job. At SAB Homes, you’ll find that many of our standard finishes are considered upgrades by other builders. We offer an array of customization options without overwhelming fees that break the budget.

That attention to quality does not end when the homebuyer moves in, either.  SAB Homes handles all the warranty service for the homes it builds. Our in-house team is available to assist with any warranty needs in a friendly and professional manner.

SAB Homes constantly strives for excellence. Simply put, our goal is always 100% customer satisfaction. New homeowners frequently comment, “Wow! That was so much easier than we expected! Who knew building could be so much fun!”

What I do: My position is working in the field taking care of homeowners during the 3 and 11 month warranty visits. I repair drywall, paint, and do some carpentry. I take pride in all of my work and it is important for me to do my best on every warranty appointment. I ensure every homeowner is pleased before I end my day. Additionally, before any house closings, I make sure to walk through the whole house and look for any kind of issues that need repaired before closing date. Background: I consider myself to be an active person and have always enjoyed working with my hands. My background in construction starts in 2008. I worked for a house remodeling company for 6 years learning everything I know today. Soon I became interested in new home construction and that is when I landed at SAB Homes. What do you like the most about building new homes?: I enjoy seeing the houses being built from the start to finish. It is amazing to me how each house is built, starting with the foundation being poured, to the final home inspection before the homeowner takes possession. It is a fun process to see regularly. Name something you wish buyers knew about home building: If I could give advice for buyers it is  if they ever do paint touch up themselves, the main walls are in a flat paint finish and bathroom walls are painted with an eggshell finish.

I really enjoy the feel of the Brookline.  The great room will really keep a family connected.  The plan also provides personal spaces for the quieter moments.  A house that a family could truly make into a home.

What is your favorite vacation and why?  I love to travel so it is hard to pick one particular vacation, but if I had to choose, it would be Paris.  I use to travel with my mother, I could tell you some stories.  In Paris she came alive.  It was truly memorable to see her with the iconic bag and baguette poking out.  I will continue to travel and see the beauty in all that this world has to offer.

Background: I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Administration but worked in the operations aspect of Healthcare for 11 years prior to joining the SAB Team.  I have always enjoyed the customer service aspect of a business and love to come across a problem and provide a solution.  I love watching the construction process take place.

Katie Reece
Senior Interior Designer
What I do: I work SAB customers to pick out all the selections and finishes for their new home. I communicate with multiple vendors in order to get the look that our customers are wanting. When drawings are needed to communicate ideas to our installers, I provide those as well. When I’m not working with our customers, I order products that go into our homes, and design our spec and model homes. During the spring and fall parades I decorate and furnish our models and do the fun “pretty” stuff to make our homes sparkle! Background: I knew I wanted to be an interior designer from the day I was born...pretty much. When I was a kid I would ask for new paint to repaint my bedroom, new bedding for Christmas, and subscribed to Architectural Digest by the time I was in Junior High. I constantly was re-drawing plans for my parents house and giving advice to others. I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Interior Design and a Masters in Art Education from the University of Central Missouri. I started out designing custom furniture and it turned into one residential project after another, which led me to SAB. What do you like the most about building new homes? The entire process of designing a home. I love being able to take what is in my mind, put it on paper, and see it come to life. What is your favorite SAB Homes floor plan and why? The Manitoba. I could see myself entertaining lots of people in the big open kitchen and great room area. What do you wish buyers knew about home building? When a buyer finds something they love, they should stick with it. Between Pinterest and Houzz these days, it’s easy to be led astray with numerous ideas...and let’s be honest...at the end of the day we can’t have everything. It has to make sense. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life? Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock. They both are confident, strong women, who could take on the world :) What do you do when you are not working? I love to travel, work on my own home, listen to live music, go to Royals games, shopping, and spending time with friends and family.

Director of Operations
​What I do: I oversee field operations by working with construction superintendents to achieve a quality-built home done on time, while using safe work practices.  When superintendents are on vacation or sick I cover their jobs.  I walk each of our homes frequently to help achieve our goals of quality, efficiency, and safety.  I work with construction trades to build a strong team of subcontractors to work on our homes.  Along with this I work with them to follow construction best practices and safety guidelines.  I meet with homeowner at times when we have special projects, and field design or problem solving projects.

Graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management from Brigham Young University – Idaho.  I worked in different construction trades throughout school and have continued with home building until the present day. What do you like the most about building new homes? The thing I like the most about building a new home is being able to start with a design beginning with the structural stage and carry it through until finished product.  It is a very exciting process to see how each stage, even though it may be simple on its own, can creates a masterpiece when done right and with the proper vision of quality and craftsmanship. ​What do you do when you are not working? I spend most of my free time with my kids, either running them around to practice or going to games.  We are involved in soccer, basketball, scouts, dance.  We are also very active in serving in our Church.  Over the years my wife and I have served in many different callings which have been a huge blessing in our lives.  We love serving other and teaching our kids the importance of service.  When I have a chance to spend personal time I like to work out, make custom knives, work on carpentry and painting hobbies around the house, play basketball, go to the shooting range, and on occasion lounge in my basement and watch movies in our theatre room.  I love sports, camping, fishing, and learning about survival. Do you love or hate roller coasters? I love roller coasters - just don’t put me on the tea cups. What is your proudest accomplishment? My proudest accomplishment is winning over my wife and having a beautiful family. If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have? If I were a super hero I would have the power of persuasion.

For build jobs I think it is interesting how home owners include different aspects in their homes such as a kegerator in the bar or go all out for appliances or energy efficiency. Another interesting aspect is how everybody has a different opinion on how things should be done, neither wrong or right there are multiple ways to skin a cat.​ Name something you wish buyers knew about home building?

I was raised by DIY parents who flipped houses, and remodeled every room in our house at least once or twice. As a family, we tore down several structures and used the materials to build a house at the lake. So, I’ve always been around DIY projects. My favorite is painting and landscape projects.

Otherwise, I would pick Sally Fields because she’s genuine, fun, a bit awkward and a little unexpected.

Happy Clients!

3 people have been EXCELLENT to work with! Robert has come here several times to help us with issues. Kelsey and Adrienne have both been great in responding to telephone calls and quick responses to emails!
Lynn & Nancy
SAB Homes is an outstanding builder with exceptional after-the-sale service! They totally stand behind their product, and provided superior workmanship for a handful of warranty claims we had on our new home. When I say “warranty claims”, I’m talking about some things our moving company damaged, like imperfections on walls, wood trim and thresholds, and EVERYTHING was repaired! For the few warranty claims related to HVAC, plumbing, etc., SAB dispatched the appropriate sub-contractor immediately, and everything was resolved to our satisfaction. It’s obvious to us, that the owner (Scott) is involved in all facets of the build, the sale and the follow-up actions related to customer concerns and warranty claims. When Scott showed up at our closing to personally thank us for the purchase, our realtor was totally surprised, and told us he’s never seen the owner of a major builder show up at a closing. We didn’t think too much about it, until we submitted our 3-month warranty claim and heard Scott on the phone, making sure the smallest of items was discussed, properly addressed, and scheduled.
Kelly & Cindy in Olathe
We had an EXCELLENT experience with SAB and HIGHLY recommend SAB to anyone wanting an amazingly good quality built home AND phenomenal follow up and follow through! SAB is very easy to work with and they go above and beyond for their customers! Robert was a fabulous superintendent on our house. He and his crew did an amazing job on our beautiful home. And when we called him on the one or two extremely minor issues, he came right over to fix within minutes!! Adrienne has been incredibly helpful, making certain that everything inside and outside the house was to our standards and we were happy. Even Scott, the owner, came to our closing to make sure we were satisfied with our purchase. We did our research, went to several model homes, looked at several builders and know that there are many choices in builders, but in our opinion, you can't beat SAB's quality and price!!
Glyn & Kristina
Our experience with SAB was nothing short of exceptional. All our friends warned us that building a house is the most stressful thing you can do as a couple, and SAB made the process almost entirely stress free. Our designer Chelsey was perfect for us and our house turned out more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. I will recommend SAB to family, friends and really anybody who will listen without hesitation.
Caitlin in Lee's Summit
I Love SAB Homes! They did a fantastic job on my house!! Scott Bamesberger is a skilled and talented builder. His plans use all the space and are affordable! I would give them 10 Stars if it was available. I am a Realtor and have sold over 900+ homes, many of which have been new construction homes. I chose SAB Homes because he stands behind his homes, is creative and his company is a well oiled machine. My warranty work has gone easily. I just can't say enough good things about SAB. You should build your next home with SAB. You will not be disappointed.
