We take exceptional pride in our work, so we love to hear back from happy customers with raving testimonials!

Dear John,

Thank you so much for the thoughtful and beautiful house warming gift- we love it! We are so grateful that we were referred to you and you agreed to build our home. From the very beginning we were comfortable and confident that our design was in good hands... but the end product exceeded our expectations. We know that our constant attentiveness and  presence on-site wasn't always easy, and truly appreciate you allowing us to participate so actively in making our dream come true. 

Thank you for everything, warm regards,

Doug & Ellen

Susan and John,

We want to thank you for hosting us last night in our beautiful new home! It was such a pleasure to meet so many people who will soon be our neighbors as well as to meet your families and those who have worked so hard to make the neighborhood such as wonderful place to live. We had a great time and look forward to hosting may similar events ourselves.

Our building experience was great. The Leland Group is top notch. From the design phase throughout the  final walk through, John provided us with the patience, expertise and guidance that you expect from a custom builder. The smooth process has made it exciting to think about building again someday. When that times comes, you can bet we will use The Leland Group as our builder of choice. We would highly recommend John and his team to anyone who is considering building a new home in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Choosing to work with John and The Leland Group when building my dream home was hands down the best decision I could have made. While doing research I found that John's reputation in the industry is second to none, and the work The Leland Group was able to accomplish is truly amazing. From start to finish, from a plot of dirt and a dream to a finished house, John and his team walk you through the entire building process, step by step until the very end. From budgeting, to design, to the actual job, I could not have asked for more. Every one of the trades did quality work and I always felt like I knew what was going on during the process. John's easy going personality was a pleasure to work with. The Leland Group does not cut corners, the product speaks for itself. If you are interested in a beautiful custom home, there really is no other choice than The Leland Group.

Val and I wish to thank you for how timely and professionally well done the cabinet renovations were done.  Ed, Tom, and Wayne did a great job! We especially appreciated their ability to work around our difficult schedule and complete the work in time for family arriving at Thanksgiving. Please let them each know of our satisfaction.




Thank you for making our remodeling project completely successful and pain-free. Not only did you and your crew do an exemplary job but you were also so personable that we enjoyed having you around. Communication throughout was open and friendly and timely. From planning to punch list, we always knew what to expect. Definiately a 5-star job! Our appreciation to you, Ed, Ron, Matt, Jeff and all the others who have given us such a beautiful renewed home.

We have found our home building experience to be very pleasant with John Ballantyne of The Leland Group. He is an honest, quality builder who pays attention to detail and has been very helpful throughout the custom building process. During the construction of our home, John has listened to our needs, offered his insight based on our budget, responded quickly to our questions and has researched ways to keep costs down without sacrificing quality. It has been a pleasure working with The Leland Group.
