When Bill and Nancy Flango decided to build a house locally – while
still living out of state – they interviewed several custom builders. One
stood out immediately, and a successful partnership and lasting friendship
came to be.
“The project was very challenging because being in New Jersey we
could not personally oversee the progress,” Bill says. Nancy agrees, adding
“We needed a builder we could trust and Zar Custom Homes repeatedly
justified the trust we placed in them.”
Led by Russell Zavatsky, owner/president, and his wife Lisa, vice president/
design consultant, the process for the owners from afar began; the
results of the Lake James house delighted the Flangos, becoming a reality
with only two visits during the process from the homeowners. How so?

Through Zar’s attention to every detail and commitment to constant communication while building a lasting relationship with clients.
“While other builders talked about which type bricks they would use, I focused on facilitating an enjoyable relationship along the way and made
this clear to the homeowners,” Russell says. At Zar, the commitment starts at the design phase and continues throughout the onsite supervision
of construction. “They treated us as if we were building an extreme value home even though we had a modest budget,” Bill says, touting Russell’s advice on materials and accents accompanied by Lisa’s expertise in choosing countertops, colors, finishes, and tile as services they could not have done without. “They truly wanted us to love the house, and it happened on budget and ahead of schedule,” Nancy says. “We couldn’t be more pleased; the house literally took our breath away; the craftsmanship is superb, and the details superior – the masonry that went into the fireplaces, the stone columns, the front porch, the wood floors, the tile throughout – the house is full of unexpected details.”
