Dear Central Illinois Home Builder Friend,

Now this may surprise you, but you can get a FREE copy, with no catch what-so-ever.

No charge. Nothing to buy.

If you’re like me you’re probably thinking, “Nothing is free. There’s gotta be a catch.” Nope. It’s absolutely free. Scouts honor.

You cannot lose on what I’m offering you today. Read on and you’ll see why that’s true…

Hi, my name is Steve Drake and I’ve been building new homes for 30 years. I’ve been lucky enough to help over 2,500 Central Illinois families live out their life long dream of building a new home here in Central Illinois and I’ve loved every minute of it! What jazzes me the most about my business is watching my clients’ reaction when they walk into their brand new home once it’s completed. I’ve seen big smiles, tears of joy, shocking amazement, hard-to-contain excitement and in one case, I actually had a client jump up and down several times, fall on the floor, start crying, stand up with her face all red, and wrap her arms around me and give me a big fat hug.


There’s nothing like it. My company, Drake Homes, enjoys a stellar reputation for building the finest crafted homes in Central Illinois, which we’ve earned one home, one family at a time. We’ve built semi-custom homes priced from $150,000 to custom luxury homes well over a $1,000,000, and we continue to do so everyday.

Now please understand that I’m not saying all this to toot my own horn.

The last thing I want to do is give you a fancy sales pitch, bragging about how great Drake Homes is, and we’re the only good home builder in Central Illinois… Not true. And that would be a turn off anyway. I’m simply providing you with a few “qualifiers”—FACTS about me—reasons why YOU might read on and hear what I have to say about home builders and building a new home here in Central Illinois.

You see, I’ve seen it all when it comes to new home builders and building a new home in this business, from the good to the ugly. And fortunately, I’ve kept great notes on what I’ve learned, seen and heard. Now I’m ready to divulge to you THE MOST IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU NEED TO BUILD THE HOME OF YOUR DREAMS (that makes the difference between a successful construction project completed within budget, on time and of top quality craftsmanship versus a project that is weighed down with struggles and costly oversights and poor construction).
