Breckenridge Homes Ray Truelsen began his home building career when he graduated from high school. His passion for his career continues to flourish with a thirty-five year base. He has built and developed some of the most reputable subdivisions and homes in Illinois. The areas of Long Grove, Barrington, Lake Forest and Kildeer are some of the prominent areas where Ray's unique custom home building can be seen. For fifteen years, Ray worked tirelessly to build beautiful homes for his clientele in the Long Grove area. Eventually Ray began to look for a new challenge for his talents. Initially Ray was going to start an early retirement and allow his talents to be used with small projects, but eventually he began to feel the desire to build homes. Nine months into his retirement, Ray and his son Chris decided to work together and create a new company. The company would reflect their vision of hard work, quality products, and also the idea that each building venture would reflect family. Chris worked for his father from the age of thirteen. He began to learn every part of the home building process. His job description reflected the simplest jobs, such as cleaning the building site, to more complex skills such as concrete, carpentry, and pipe fitting. Chris's broad experience was a reflection of his father's ideals for having some experience and knowledge for every aspect of the home building process. Ray and Chris have lived in the McHenry area for the past twenty five years. The area is "home" to them, and they realized that the area was maturing, and on the brink of experiencing new growth. The McHenry area was an inviting place to begin their new company. The philosophy of the company has always been to stay small and maintain exceptional service. The primary goal has always been to "Exceed Our Customers Expectations". Together, the father and son team have almost fifty years of experience in the home building industry. In order to reflect the high standards that Breckenridge Homes continually strives to surpass, Ray and Chris pride themselves on completing most of the work themselves. They are on the job site every day in order to reassure their clients that the company philosophy is reflected in every part of the home.
