About First Choice Homes
Builder located in Saint Charles, MN

First Choice Homes is owned and operated by Nancy J. Heim of St. Charles, Minnesota. Nancy started working in construction in 1981 when she completed her first home remodeling project on a home she owned. In 1986 she received her real estate license and started working with her parents who owned a real estate business.  In 1994 she received her Real Estate Broker's license, and in 1996 started her own real estate company, St. Charles Real Estate. In 1997 she obtained her Minnesota Residential Building License.  Nancy continued remodeling both residential and commercial properties.

As a founding member of the St. Charles Area Chamber of Commerce, Nancy is active in community development and improvement. In 2006 she completed a new subdivision, Countryside Acres, to enhance the community and provide a quiet new home setting for families to enjoy.

In 2008, Nancy decided to separate her businesses and founded First Choice Homes, LLC.

At First Choice Homes, We Build RightSM. Building right is not just an ideal; it is a way of building which starts with the concept of a home plan and best practices engineered and woven into every aspect of the home building process.

The key to building right is our invisible quality. Invisible quality is the unseen quality of a home which affects longevity and performance of every home. Select trades, familiar with our process, partner with us to insure the invisible quality meets our design standards and provide you with a quality customized home superior to other homes.

Build RightSM Homes Save You Money on heating bills.

Our invisible quality control measures produce a tighter, more precise, higher quality home. The result is elimination of unwanted drafts that lead to higher utility bills and moisture damage which can cause mold and expensive damage to a home.

Build RightSM Homes Save You time and money; no construction delays!

Building right also involves building on time and on budget. We use cutting edge construction processes to minimize weather-related delays and, depending upon the complexity of design, your home will be weather-tight in 3-7 working days from moving on site after the completion of the foundation. Weather-tight and built right means energy efficiency and comfort.

Building right also involves the things you do see. From excavating, concrete, plumbing, HVAC and electrical to drywall, painting and floor coverings, we use experienced subcontractors. Trained and experienced craftsmen install all your inside products such as kitchen & bath cabinets, countertops, doors, trim and hardware to exacting standards. At First Choice Homes, We Build RightSM to insure you get a Green Built, Energy Star-Certified Home. Click for more information on Energy Star.
