V purchased a home with Dan Kittilsen of DJK Custom Homes (Plainfield Illinois and his other address is Naperville IL) and it was to be custom built. After telling my wife and I that he was a man of his word, we found out he was anything but. He is a *** artist. He tells you whatever you want to hear up front and then when he puts the inclusions sheet together for contract he leaves things out. In my home he charged us TO INSTALL THE APPLIANCES! He had a photo of the home we wanted to built and he then later said "this and this and this isnt included". He charged us to "haul dirt off the lot", and then handed us a FRAUDULENT BILL which was made up by him. Yes v verified this with the contractor who confirmed that Dan Kittilsen is a scam artist. I spoke with my attorney regarding this and have yet decided if we will pursue legal action. After speaking with other contractors, it is clear that he short pays every contractor and some contractors he doesnt pay at all. He seems like such a nice guy when you first meet him, but all the homeowners v spoke with hate him.
He does not warranty his work and his staff is rude. V spent almost 1 million dollars with this man and he still took advantage of us.
My wife and I spent over 300 hours with this man and each time he created a new lie. Do NOT under any condition build with this man. He is a WONDERFUL sales man, unfortunately he is also a FRAUD.
Ask to speak with his last 20 homeowners, and you too will see that this man is a FRAUD. V had to learn the hard way by having him put us through *** for a year. He missed out closing date by months and each time blamed someone else.
If you cant speak to his last 20 homeowners, then DONT BUILD WITH THIS MAN. HE IS A FRAUD AND WILL GET OVER ON YOU TOO!
Monetary Loss: $50000.
