Realtor Testimonial

I just wanted to express my gratitude to you, Peter, your team as well as the team at Axia. I have worked with (and for) home builders in northern Nevada and have been a part of this industry since 2005. I am not sure how I haven’t had a home buyer with Lifestyle before – and I wish I had far more! I can certainly be jaded after many market conditions and circumstances that we have all weathered. My focus is always on the buyer’s experience and it is so refreshing to see that you have the same priority. From sales to the ease of your process and communication with Mike at the walk-through this week – every interaction was customer-focused and a joy to be a part of. That was the cleanest walk-through I have ever had! It is sadly of note and not the norm in my experience. I wanted to let you know it does not go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated. We sometimes only get to hear the bad feedback rather than the good. I am not sure which was more rewarding to be a part of – the Duval’s experience as they purchased a home from you, or the distinct difference in the happiness and pride of everyone I interacted with that stands behind such great work. You certainly stand out to me and I wanted to make sure it didn’t go unsaid. It made me so happy to see that my focus on community, quality, and great service is completely aligned with what you delivered. THANK YOU for doing it right!

Best wishes,

Home Buyer Testimonials

We are fortunate to find ourselves the homeowners of a Lifestyle Home in Woodland Village. We love our new home, it is beautifully built, with lovely high-end finishes that were standard, not options, and we are extremely happy that we found our home here. Peter Lissner and his team are true masters, planning this community very well, building a great home, and the entire staff has been very accommodating with any request we had during construction and afterward. We would not hesitate to recommend Lifestyle Homes to anyone.

I’m writing to commend Lifestyle on the very high degree of quality I’ve encountered in the home I purchased from you, and of the helpfulness of the Lifestyle team. You’ve really been a pleasure to deal with! I’ve been in my new home for almost exactly one year, and the construction has proved to be virtually flawless; there have been none of the kind of “teething problems” that one typically encounters with a new house. I grew up as part of an extended family which built new homes, and I am well aware of the level of attention to detail and commitment to quality that it takes to produce such a house in a development construction scenario! In the one case where I had a problem (i.e. a defective thermostat), a Lifestyle employee showed up literally within minutes of my phone call and took care of the problem. That is a level of service that one rarely encounters these days! I was also impressed when Peter himself called me shortly after I moved in to check that I was satisfied. Believe me, Grandpa would never have bothered to do that! I’d also like to compliment Lifestyle on the overall quality of the Woodland Village development. It is well laid out, beautifully landscaped, and in all a great place to live!

It’s with pleasure and gratitude that we comment on our experience of buying from Lifestyle Homes and living in Woodland Village. Before buying here, we spent many months trying to buy houses that were short sales and foreclosures. What a hassle! A complete waste of time and energy. While we have bought and sold a number of homes, we have never before encountered such a level of excellence. Our experience at each phase of the buying process was superior, from locating the perfect lot to place the home, to adding upgrades, to have the home completed on time. Every day that we live in our home, we discover how well-built and energy efficient it is. When there is a problem, which is very rare, Lifestyle’s staff leaps into action, corrects the problem, and takes proactive measures to prevent future problems. Lifestyle and the entire staff manage to maintain a perfect balance of professionalism, good humor, patience, and understanding, and are extremely knowledgeable about their product. We now consider all of them our friends.

Bud & Sue Varnum

I will start my review by stating that I have been in the construction industry for over 20 years. My family recently relocated to NV and I was fairly particular about ANY new home that we purchased. I have now bought 2 new Lifestyle Homes in the past 2 years (one for myself and one for my father) and was able to monitor the entire construction process. These are well-built homes from top to bottom. The builder puts in the time and effort to build quality structures that will last. I have seen too many other “slapped together” homes in this region that left me wondering whether the house will still be standing when the mortgage is finally paid off. Lifestyle Homes also stands behind their products, no question about it. As a builder, I can tell you that every new home needs some sort of repair within the first year. It’s just the nature of the business, but I was honestly shocked to see how quickly they take care of any issues that pop up. Though my favorite aspect of my new home is the community itself. There is a lot of thought and planning that has gone into this development. Wherever you live, there is a park nearby that the kids can access via the bike path. Every road is a cul-de-sac and is connected to a large walking trail/bike path system. I can let my kids go out and play without worrying about them playing in traffic. That is not something that I could say about any place that I have ever lived in before. In summary: Woodland Village is a great place to live that I have and will continue to recommend to friends and family.

They are the home builder in the beautiful rural community of Woodland Village! Located next to BLM land with direct access to it. Just pull your OHV out of the garage and drive it directly to the BLM land. The homes are great with excellent attention to detail! Quite a few of the Lifestyle Homes employees are homeowners in Woodland Village. My wife and I retired in 2017 and came from Seattle. We looked all over the SW and settled here with no regrets!

My husband and I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the outstanding quality and pride of workmanship that you put into your homes. Throughout the whole process, the Customer Service we received was prompt, informative, and excellent in every way. We are so very happy with Woodland Village Community and as it has so much to offer and is planned out very well. We have met a lot of wonderful people in the community and now share a friendship. The amenities in Woodland Village are awesome, we’re really enjoying them. A huge dog park, and playgrounds throughout the community. Fitness Center, walking paths, and the local Woodland Village restaurant, which has a playground and water pad outside for the little ones to enjoy while the adults can enjoy conversation and a bite to eat on the covered patio. The natural beauty of the BLM land that outlines the community is wonderful for hiking/exploring. ATV’s etc., and just steps away from the front door. There’s something for everyone here!! The mountain views are spectacular and very serene. We have to pinch ourselves as we have been very fortunate to have found this great community and are now enjoying a little slice of heaven here on earth. Thank you again for a wonderful Staff, Product, and Community!!!

At 55 being retired in the big city, my love of the Golden State was beginning to lose its luster. This led me to begin my search for a place to call home, away from the hustle and bustle. All roads led me to Woodland Village, a quaint development in the back of Cold Springs Valley. Here I found the perfect place to spend my golden years. However, trying to get into a home was proving to be a bit challenging. I spent the better part of two years submitting bids and being outbid. Then my brother told me about some new homes being built where I was searching. My brother and I took a ride to see the models. From the moment I walked into the sales model I knew I had found my dream. It was a Saturday afternoon and there were a few others looking too. Brick was great to work with, there was no pressure as he showed me the models. The only problem for me with all the models and floor plans was choosing the one that fit me best. Leaving with all the maps, floor plans, and pricing, I set off to pick my dream house. After a few days of contemplating what fit my needs, I returned and sat with Brick to discuss my options. Brick again was very gracious and helpful, together we found the perfect lot for the floor plan I had chosen. We did the paperwork and set an appointment to choose all my options. Meeting with Ed to pick out my options, was as pleasant as working with Brick. Ed was very thorough, he explained everything in detail. He even came up with a few ideas to customize my home to better fit my liking. When we were finished we came up with a time frame of completion, which was going to be at the beginning of winter. Not ideal for moving, I was a little concerned, but to my surprise Lifestyle Homes did something really great. They went to work and finished my house a month and a half early. My experience with Lifestyle Homes has been and remains the best home-buying process I have ever had. The entire staff is a joy to work with, so much so we are all on a first-name basis and I do not feel like a customer, but more like part of the Lifestyle family. After seeing my house and the quality, my younger brother and his wife sat down with Brick and planned their dream home. I look forward to bringing a few other buyers into the Lifestyle family and new home buyers.

I can honestly say that our home has been fantastic, and the Woodland Village community an absolutely amazing place to live for the last 20 years! We raised our son here, made many friends, and have so many wonderful memories and adventures to cherish. Even after all these years, we are still incredibly grateful to Lifestyle Homes, and the Lissner family for the quality of their homes, and their ongoing homeowner and community support. We are truly fortunate to have found this jewel so close to Reno and yet a million miles away in terms of outdoor recreation opportunities, and breathtaking mountain and desert vistas… You would be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful place to live.

Excellent craftsman building affordable homes

John M.

We were treated so well that my wife and I decided to stop looking for other homes and just wait for the home we chose to be finished, even though we knew this would take a bit longer. It’s clear that customer service with this builder is their top priority.

Lifestyle Homes is unmatched when it comes to integrity and quality in the homes they build. I have purchased two brand new homes from them over the years and can say with confidence they really care. Everyone we came in contact with through out the process was courteous and super helpful. On top of that; the community is beautifully landscaped and maintained, quiet and safe.

Our beautiful home is being built and we chose Lifestyle Homes after searching the area for 3 years for the perfect spot and we kept coming back to the same spot… Lifestyle Homes =)

Scott M.

Been here for 3 years and I fall in love more everyday!

Staceyann D.

I bought my house in 2006 and every single time I’ve had a question or issue, Peter the owner of Lifestyle Homes has personally knocked on my door, usually the same day, to address and resolve my issue. I couldn’t be more grateful. I love my home and the incredible service. Thank you, Peter!

Sabrina A.

Surprisingly over the top quality for entry level homes. The detail crew are super meticulous about being the best. Great service and quality for the money…

Mr. C.

This is by far the most well-built home that we have ever lived in, and Lifestyle is the easiest company to deal with as well. We have been here eight years, and have never been happier. The walking paths are set up so well, easily accessible from court to court without having to walk onto a main street. It is very quiet and serene. Some friends of ours came to visit in the fall and said that Village Parkway, with its tree lined street and red fences is the prettiest street in Reno! Thank you Lifestyle Homes!

Sue V.

Great local Builder north of Reno in Cold Springs… the quality of the home is great and the service is fantastic!


My heater wasn’t working so I emailed Peter Lissner from Lifestyle Homes and within 15 minutes I received an email from him. Then half hour later Peter and the crew showed up and fixed it. Great experience with great workers. Thanks for the quick response and super service! Absolutely 10 on service and response!

Jeffrey G.

Friendly, Professional, Great company to do business with!

More Than Just Words…
Lifestyle is Committed to Quality

Quality is about attention to details that aren’t so apparent.

The quality of our homes is the sum of all the little things you notice and appreciate when you’ve owned a Lifestyle Home for a while.

Our entire team of builders and managers understand the value and importance of quality and work tirelessly to achieve that in every home for every buyer.
