i can offer 1.4 million reasons why you should never trust your hard earned dollar to Schell or Echelon as we have been abandoned since the day we took delivery of our new home. structural issues abound. no one from Schell or Echelon will take responsibility for repairs, promises to handle the concerns have been abandoned, and no one in management, let alone a Schell, will give us time of day to address the concerns which they themselves have found to be significant. they have all the time in the world for you to take your money, but are no where to be found when you need them. at this point we have been lied to, disregarded, lip serviced to no end, and severely frustrated by the lack of commitment to follow through on commitments made. they claim they sell happiness, but what you find is the happiness they are committed to is there own. i would strongly urge you to do the homework, and if you are already in process with this builder, buyer beware! invest the money to have a home inspector and engineer evaluate your home before you close. once you are in, you are done.
