What our home owners are saying about their new Shoopman Homes

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Paul Shoopman Homes to anyone looking to buy a home in the greater
Indianapolis area. My wife Lynn and I have purchased four homes now in our life time and not all the experiences
and been good ones. The buying experience with Paul Shoopman has been by far the best home buying we have
Furthermore, what sets Paul Shoopman Homes apart from other builders is his integrity, experience, financial
strength and warranty. It is not difficult to find someone to build a structure, but the challenge comes in finding a
builder that stands behind his work. Every situation that has come up with our home Paul Shoopman has taken a
personal interest that the problem gets resolved quickly and efficiently. We have enjoyed our new home and our
experience with Paul Shoopman Homes. We intend to build one more home in our lifetime and the only builder
we will consider is Paul Shoopman Homes.


As we settle in a little better (and regain our sanity back, I want to thank you for doing a great job with the house.
You were very accommodating to our never ending requests for changes. It was a long process and at times exhausting
for us, but you made it smooth and enjoyable. We are enjoying our new house and love it.
Also want thank Angie for helping and guiding us in selections, Dan and Steve Roberts for their work in putting
together all the plans (at times multiple never ending changes in plans), Jon Guy for monitoring things so closely
and paying attention to small details that ended up making a big difference in the final product, Steve for his always
welcoming attitude at front and many more people in the background who made all this possible. Also a special
thanks to Melissa for her help in bearing with us by looking at our multiple emails every day and responding back
Thanks a lot and you guys rock!


It is with great pleasure that I write a letter of recommendation for Paul Shoopman. We are currently building a
new home with Shoopman homes and our experience with Paul Shoopman and his team has been truly exceptional.
The moment we stepped into Shoopman showroom in Abney Glenn, we were warmly welcomed. Once inside the
showroom, we were very impressed with the attention to fine details and superior quality. What impressed us even
more was that all of our subsequent meetings to discuss what we wanted in our house were with none other than
Paul himself. We met for more than two months with Paul (some of them on weekends) before even finalizing that
we will be building with him. Paul listened patiently to us and accommodated all changes we continued to request.
This was in stark contrast to some of the other builders in the area where our meetings seemed rushed and hence
Me and my wife are very detail oriented and continued to change things throughout the process and were accommodated
with a smile every time. At times, even we felt bad about sending multiple emails requesting one change
after another but Paul and his team continued to impress us every step of the way by accommodating everything.
We had heard about all the horror stories from our friends who had built with other builders in town where once
you sign you find out that a lot of things are not even included and then will be sold as an “upgrade” at an extra
charge. Again Paul and his team impressed us as there were no such surprises. The standard features in the house
included so many upgrades that we just could not find any deficiencies. In fact, one of our friends who built with
another builder in Indianapolis and was guiding us through the process said that he would recommend Shoopman
homes as so many things sold to him as upgrades were standard every time we asked Paul.
In short, if you are looking to build an elegant, high quality home with someone who is attentive to you needs,
down to earth and has a great professional team and you do not want to find out surprises. Paul Shoopman homes
is your team.
We are looking forward to breaking ground on our home in a few days and cannot wait to share more of our experiences
as we go along.


This is a letter to thank you for making our move from Phoenix, Arizona, a very pleasant experience. The home
which we purchased from you, a “Brittany Model,” which was your model home in Monarch Springs, we fell in love
with at first sight. It is a beautiful home and we are enjoying it more and more everyday that we live here.
We have lived in our new home since March of this year, 2012. We have had very few problems. Every one of which
you have responded to and have contacted the necessary people to get them fixed. Your very professional and personalized
attention has made our transition very painless. We know that if a problem occurs with our house, we
have but to contact you and we can rest assured that the problems will be solved.
Everyone we have met who are connected with Shoopman Homes, reflect that same professionalism. We would,
and have recommended to friends and family that Shoopman Home Builders is a first class operation.
Thank you so much for building such a fine home.
Yours Truly,
Clarence and Charlotte


I just wanted to take time again to thank you and your building company. Paul Shoopman Home Building Group,

beautiful home.

Dear Future home buyers: It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to provide a strong recommendation for
Paul Shoopman Home Building Group to build your new home. They built me and my family the most beautiful
home that I could ever ask for. This was my second time experiencing the home building process and I am glad

Something else incredible to know is that Paul Shoopman himself personally provided valuable assistance for me
during the walk-thru process of my home. His professionalism and knowledge of the home helped to make me
more comfortable with getting to know my new home. Paul made sure to explain what to expect with my new
home and who to contact if I should come across any problems. His thoroughness and attention to detail also
helped to make me more comfortable with my transition to becoming a new homeowner once again.
Paul, I want you to know that I really appreciate your attention to detail and professionalism in helping me with
questions and/or concerns about my new home. I would highly recommend you (Paul Shoopman Home Building
Group) to my family, friends, and anyone in the market to build a new home.
I will gladly discuss my experience with Paul Shoopman to any potential home builders upon request.
Thank you,


Thank you! They have contacted me and will be taking care of it when they are in the area. We appreciate how
quickly your company has always responded to our needs. We are certainly impressed with Paul Shoopman Homes.


So happy to see that your home building is going well for you. We are enjoying our home and we thank you for
all that you have done for us. John retired from the Marine Corps after 27 years of service May 1st. We both still
work for the civilian side of the Marine Corps in the IT field. I have a couple of favors to ask you. Our bush that
was replaced this past spring in the back yard is dead. Not sure what happened because we had plenty of rain and
we watered if it didn’t rain. Would you be willing to replace it?
Do you know a good attorney here that could maybe direct us to someone that could stop foreclosure of a home.
We had to move here because Congress passed the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Act of 2005 that impacted
both our commands that we worked for in KC, MO. For two years we have been trying to sell our home
there, but the economy and housing market there is still bad. We had different buyers for it in that time, but
because of the slowness of the banks to respond and the strict time limits imposed on some of the programs we
applied for, our home just went into foreclosure. Our mortgage company was negotiating with Freddie Mac and
were told by Freddie Mac they would not sell the house for what the buyers were willing to pay unless we signed a
promissory note. Unfortunately, since we lost retention incentives that were promised to us in 2008 and all federal
employees have not had cost of living adjustments for the past 4 years, we cannot afford to take on any more debt.
In 2005, our dream home appraised for $425K and now we are trying to sell it for a mere $240K. So, I have rambled
on enough and I know you are busy man we just thought you might know someone who could help. Hope all is
well with you and your family.



I am so blessed to have found this home! I had looked and looked and loved this home when I went inside… There
were some things I needed to make it my own and even with it being a model and being complete Paul Shoopman
was more then willing to assist us in making the home ours! Adding some handicap ease items here and there and
a water softener and a larger patio area and drywall to the garage and appliances! I am completely comfortable with
my decision to buy this home and everything promised to me has been delivered! As with any new home some
things can come up and we have had a couple small things yet they were dealt with promptly and completely! The
complementary paint touchup kit allowed me to keep my sanity during move in! How convenient! Paul even guided
us to First Place Bank with Steve Waddell for our VA financing needs and the experience was smooth, courteous
and I always felt well informed! I would recommend a Shoopman experience to EVERYONE without hesitation!
Thank you to Paul Shoopman and his crew!
Most Sincerely,


My first home construction experience with Paul Shoopman was in 1991 when we contracted with Paul and Dura
Homes to build our home on the Indianapolis NW side. Though it was a modified production home built to suit
our needs as a family of four, we were most impressed to learn and often observe that Paul would almost daily visit
the job site. To me that was amazing given the number and span of homes that Paul was building throughout
Central Indiana.
We enjoyed our home for several years before selling (at a profit) years later due to a job change. My career
changed tracks and finally realized my destiny and obtained my real estate license in 2004. Paul also migrated his
business through multiple transitions to build custom homes with Paul Shoopman Home Building Group.
Knowing Paul’s work ethics and his dominance and longevity in the building industry in Central Indiana, it has
been my privilege to bring my clients to his doorstep, knowing that he would apply the same level of care to every
customer that I personally experienced a long time ago. In doing so, I have witnessed Paul going that extra mile
on multiple transactions to make certain that customer was completely satisfied with their purchase of a Paul
Shoopman custom home.
Other builders have come and gone. I recommend you meet the man that has not only survived, but has excelled
since the 1970’s.


I am writing to thank you for the really great and stress free start to my new home…. The whole process from the
initial meeting with you to my sign off on the final drawings has gone smoothly. Everyone I have dealt with in your
company has couteous and helpful. My new home is under construction …….this will be my second Shoopman
home…and I am looking forward to a beautiful new home that brings me as much joy as the last.


We sat down with Paul over a number of sessions in the planning stages of our new home. In all of those meetings,
he was accommodating and very patient, answering our questions about everything from enlarging existing
features of the plan to taking space from less noticeable parts of the house, adding that onto other areas. He was
also helpful in reminding us about what future buyers might want or need, so that what we were planning could
be modified if a future buyer wanted to make changes. He guided us towards a three rather than a two-car garage,
and answered questions about the rooms that most buyers look at in order of importance. In these many sessions,
Paul stayed well past the normal closing time, working to accommodate our schedules so we did not have to leave
work early to meet with him.
Paul also showed patience as we took the ideas home, then changed them after mulling them over, ideas like
deciding against cathedral ceilings, adding footage, changing dimensions, changing door placements, etc. We never
felt rushed or hurried during this phase, and felt Paul worked with our needs rather than pushing us to accept
his. At one point when we discovered that we would have to reduce the dimensions of the planned home by eight
inches in order to fit due to a narrower part of the plot, he spent a long time with us as we agonized over where we
could cut these inches.
We appreciated the time Paul took with us, guiding us in these March and April sessions to a home in which we
can look forward to living.

After being fully impressed with my coworker’s Shoopman town home in Greenwood Trace, I was ecstatic to find
he is building the same plans in Westfield as I am downsizing and find these homes to be the perfect solution for
Paul has been great to work with and has been extremely patient with me making changes as he is customizing my
home to fit my taste and needs. I am now happily working with his designer selecting the final products, finishes
and colors.
Paul has made this a pleasurable experience to date, and I look forward to the construction and move in phase.


We are so pleased with the home that Paul Shoopman Builders has constructed for us. When we decided to relocate
to Indianapolis, and build our “forever” home, we were so happy that we contacted Paul. He provided us with
a plan, and a home that has far exceeded our expectations is every way. His attention to detail is wonderful. He
thought of things to go into our home that we did not even think of. With his recommendations, we now have a
home that is not only comfortable, but absolutely beautiful. We would recommend Paul Shoopman Builders to
anyone who is thinking of building in the Indianapolis area.
Thanks again, Paul, for taking us through this building process. We appreciate all that you have done for us.

We were in market to buy a new home since last year. We did extensive market research and met almost all major
builders in Greater Indianapolis Area and finally selected Paul Shoopman Homes. Based on our research and
experience; three close friends also bought their homes from him at the same time. Primary reason to buy a Paul
Shoopman Home were based on following reasons:
1. Openness and honesty: We don’t want to be surprised during construction and Paul was very upfront and open
during contract signing process. He is a visionary builder and anticipates potential problems and always suggests
cost-effective solutions.
2. Paul is only builder that asks “wish-list’ and is never in rush to get the sales contract signed rather allows plenty
of time to think , decide and plan. There is never any sales pressure.
3. Only builder who can customize features at minimum cost. For example you can add crown molding, tray
ceiling etc. anywhere at a price no builder will match.
4. Paul has innovative ideas to draw a balance between budget and ‘wish-list” and will make unique recommendations.
5. Design Center at Paul Shoopman Homes are unmatched in industry and I recommend anyone in the market
for home at least visit and see yourself. Selection choices are mind boggling. Only builder in town who will allow
to go and shop yourself outside their design center and he negotiates and gets stuff at price far below than market
value for customers.
6. Paul is not a type of builder who will abandon you once it is closed, he is there to fix any problem during warranty
period. You can also seek suggestion to upgrade your home years later, Paul is never out of ideas.
7. Even in earlier production homes Paul built, elevations are so attractive and different, it feels custom homes. If
elevation matters and you are under budget constraint, Paul Shoopman Home is a must see.
It is an honor to call ourselves Paul Shoopman Home owner. With gratitude;


This is a letter of recommendation in the highest regard for Paul Shoopman. I have known and worked with
Paul since 2003. With me and my clients by Paul’s actions he has proven himself to be honest, an excellent communicator
and possessing home construction knowledge that I’ve not witnessed with most other builders. When
compared to other builders Paul almost always has the most competitive sales price.
I’ve served as a VP of Sales for a local and a national builder and as a real estate broker sell on average 50 homes
a year. Consequently I’m fully aware of all the builder options in the Indpls. market place. Without failure I introduce
every client I work with to Paul. I make sure all my buyer clients explore building options with Paul. Paul has
built homes for many of my clients and all of them have been happy with the process and finished product. Paul
is an important part of my business model. Every realtor and buyer should include the Paul Shoopman Home
Building Group on their tour.
Thank you!


Our home was built in October of last year [2012] by Shoopman Homes…to-date, most folks still think it was
a model home. I enjoyed my experience with Paul…he followed through & kept his word on items that needed
attention [Still does with the warranty]. Since then we’ve had minor issues in the home majority of which will be
addressed when they circle back around for the one year review/walk through [nail pops, cracks in dry wall joints
etc]. The responses for service have been swift including re-direction [by Paul] in the event the contractor can’t
complete a certain task. Buying a Shoopman guarantees a quality home and peace of mind…you won’t be disappointed.


First of all thank you so much for helping us build our first home. As two kids who have never built a home or let alone, owned a home, you helped us through the biggest purchase of our lives. In just 4 short months, you and your

To anyone looking to build a home, we highly recommend Terry Frederick to act as your sales representative.
he has been so successful throughout his career. Aside from his professional capabilities, Terry is also a wonderful
person with a big heart. Even to this day, it is not uncommon for me to get a call from Terry letting me know that
my garage was open and he went ahead and closed it for us, or for him to simply send us a message asking how we
are doing. Because of these things, and many days of conversation and laughter, we have grown to develop a great
relationship with a man who, at one time, was just “the Shoopman salesman”.
We thank you for all that you have done, Terry. We are appreciative for all your assistance through the homebuild-
Force, and we are grateful for the relationship that we have come to develop with you.
Please do not hesitate to let us know if you ever need anything.
With Love and Sincerity,
