|Editorial Review||Hallmark Homes is an above average provider of modular homes. They offer a wide range of floorplans and unlike most others modular providers Hallmark Homes is very upfront with the pricing for their modular homes. They offer a complete solution from start to finish which helps to keep the price low for home buyers by removing the markups that the middleman would charge. They also offer an owner/builder solution for home buyers looking to save money. Normally we get scared when modular providers offer this because most people are not experienced enough to succeed. We are comfortable with Hallmark Homes since they act like a consultant to the home buyer helping them hire the right people to do the work. They have recently updated their website and it looks very nice including the portfolio of their modular mansions. Hallmark Homes is a good option for all home buyers and even commercial builders.|

Personal Reviews of Hallmark Homes
Chad from New Hampshire
After doing a fair amount of research, I am convinced that there is no better value than Hallmark Homes in terms of the quality product they provide, at an exceptional price. Roland was great to work with - always very helpful, informative and forthright. I would highly recommend Hallmark to anyone.
dave cameron from olney, md
Just wanted to praise Roland at hallmark homes for his response to chris's concerns. You conducted yourself in a very thorough and professional manor and if that is the way you treat all your customers concerns then I'm a fan on your company. Look forward to potentially working with you in the future.;
Frank from Virginia
My initial experience with Hallmark has been very positive. The owner, Roland, was very responsive and helpful. In the end he was able to instill confidence in my mind about Hallmark products. Hallmark Homes is at the top of my list should I decide to build a modular home, and I will definitely recommend it to anyone interested in modular homes.
Kallie Jurgens from Charlestown, RI
Unbelieveable service. What they quote, you pay. They are super easy to work with. I love my house. No glitches--just sheer fun building it. Would use them again in a heartbeat. Roland, the owner, is very accomodating and patient. Definitely use them if you are building in New England!
Stacey Cassaday from Arizona
Looking for land in SE and to build our custom modular home. What a great company to work with! They just keep answering questions and helping. No one else guided us with what to do locally and what to have the modular comp do. They showed what makes financial sense for us so we can actually get more out of our budget. Everyone else seemed to just want to sell anything they could to us and just didn't have answers. Hallmark worked to custom design and gave suggestions on things we never considered. Land first, then nobody but Hallmark for us. Thank you Hallmark for everything, including GREAT prices - we checked you out and everything we heard, you've confirmed!
Odles from Southwest VIrginia
After looking around for the perfect home we came across Hallmark Homes. They were very pleasant to work with even though we did not buy a house at the present time we look forward to working with them in the future. Very professional and informative.
The Broadwaters from Southwest Virginia
After researching our options, we chose Hallmark Homes because of the quality of the homes they manufacture. The whole process was extremely smooth, and all the employees were a pleasure to deal with. I wish we could have met each of them in person. We chose to have Hallmark draw modular plans for a houseplan that we had from another builder...allowing us to create our dream home. We are very pleased with our outcome and would definately recommend Hallmark Homes to anyone who is in the market to build a new home.
Ed from Needham, MA
We met with Roland and Gunter prior to building our new home. We were very impressed by them and the way that they did business. Roland gave us honest advice, including scaling back the modular part of our home to save money.
In the end, we could not find a general contractor to work with Hallmark. We got lucky and found a good combination of contractor and manufacturer, but if you have a contractor, I would strongly recommend checking out Hallmark.
Todd & Michelle Souza from North Stonington Ct
It was a pleasure getting our home with Hallmark. The owner helped greatly with all aspects of the project. I would recommend Hallmark to anyone interested in a beautiful well built home.
roslyn accardo from rhode island
The home of my dreams! The knowledge and expertise, along with a great deal of patience by Hallmark Homes has brought my family unreal happiness and a future we never thought possible. THANK YOU!!! Hallmark Homes!
Wayne Ulbin from Warwick, RI
I have been in my house 10 years. It took 8 for me to get all my permits on a site given to me but subject to wet lands. I guess I have known Roland for 18 years. We still love our house. He was the most informed person of all those I spoke to and the only one willing to help me over all of the years of permit adversity. We changed the house numerous times and he never complained. Frankly, after 8 years he was the only one still in business of all of the suppliers and contractors I started with. Being in business for over 30 years, under the same name and with an excellent track record, should give dealing with Hallmark a great degree of confidence and comfort. I have recommended Hallmark often to friends and neighbors.
David Marino from Paulsboro, NJ
I'm an investor. Searched for a good modular company and found the best. Bought 2 houses from Hallmark. They were there to help me with issues not even part of the modular. Great service and they always answer the phone in person.
Chris from Virginia
Website charges $25.00 for pricing of their modulars, and that includes 50 pre-set plans. You can also get three free price estimates for the three floorplans you select if you fill out the information card and let the dreaded salesman contact you. Information above needs to be corrected.
Response from Roland at Hallmark Homes
Regarding Chris form VA. We noticed that Chris has a concern regarding our pricing service. We make every effort to give potential customers meaningful information and prompt service. We do NOT publish deceptive price lists on our site based on F.O.B. pricing. Our pricing in inclusive and represents a meaningful delivered and set cost of the product covering 24 States. Pricing for up to 3 plans, 2 different specification standards (6 actual prices) are furnished FREE and responded to within 1 business day. The Immediate pricing feature for over 50 (actually 74 pre-viewable) plans for the $25 assures that only sincere parties are responded to. Since we pride ourselves to professional follow up, YES a representative will call to further explain and help with the specifics regarding such a major investment. The $25 investment will reward the client with a $375+ dishwasher included with the delivery of the home, or if the client is not satisfied with the information received, we shall cheerfully refund the $25.00.
