Homeowner Reviews

“It gives me great pleasure to recommend Paul Shoopman Homes to anyone looking to buy a home in the greater Indianapolis area. My wife Lynn and I have purchased four homes now in our life time and not all the experiences have been good ones.”


“We are currently building a new home with Shoopman homes and our experience with Paul Shoopman and his team has been truly exceptional. Once inside the showroom, we were very impressed with the attention to fine details and the superior quality. What impressed us even more was that all of our subsequent meetings to discuss what we wanted in our house were with none other than Paul himself… “


“After being fully impressed with my coworker’s Shoopman town home in Greenwood Trace, I was ecstatic to find he is building the same plans in Westfield as I am downsizing and find these homes to be the perfect solution for me. Paul has been great to work with and has been extremely patient with me making changes as he is customizing my home to fit my taste and needs.”
