|Editorial Review||Irontown Homes provides a wide variety of modular homes. These homes are available direct to consumers which is unusual but helpful in that in helps gives consumers bargaining power with local builders assuming the home buyers are experienced enough to handle the detail finish work which is necessary for every modular home. We feel Irontown Homes is a possible option for home buyers near their factory. Make sure you thoroughly review them and visit their factory as we have heard some uncomfortable things about them. This is probably only a good match for entry to mid range home buyers.|

Personal Reviews of Irontown Homes
On 12/2/13 - I left a message with their "sales" dept. My work schedule is kind of funny, so I figured I would call as I had time (so they didn't have to try to call me at the "right" time.)
So on 12/3/13 - I called again. Didn't leave a message since they already had my first one.
On 12/4/13 - I called and tried the "general" mailbox. I mentioned my previous two attempts to contact them and said I was trying the general mailbox just in case folks were off on vacation or something.
On this date I also sent an email, as some companies are more responsive to email and don't really use their phones.
Today is Friday 12/6/13. I have yet to receive any reply from the company. Not even an automated "Thank you for emailing us, a representative will contact you shortly."
I thought perhaps the entire company decided to take time off between now and Christmas since it's kind of a slow time of year. But that's a bit odd, so I thought I would check their BBB rating and see if there are any reviews.
The BBB rating was A+, which was good. But the reviews are almost non existent except for this site. Unfortunately it appears everyone else is having the same problem. Given my troubles reaching them for even basic pricing information and the fact that others are having the same problem I'm leery of working with them for something as complex as housing that requires good constant communication between the parties.
They may be a fine company. There may be a perfectly good reason why contacting them is so difficult. But I'm probably going to hold off at this point.
Response from Kendra Bernal at Irontown Homes
We are sorry to hear that Mr. Nebel was unsatisfied with our time frame in returning his estimate. WE ARE NO WHERE NEAR GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. We have many, many satisfied customers. In the future, Mr. Nebel, we will strive to improve our Architectural/Dealer programming. As we explained to you in the beginning of our -conversations it was a pilot program. WE TYPICALLY SELL DIRECT TO THE CONSUMER.
