"The help I received from Dawn was absolutely priceless!"

Dawn has been a life-saver for me. I was building a house in Wisconsin while living 16 hours away in South Carolina. I already had a house plan and builder when I met Dawn at one of her parade homes. Her personality, home ideas, and decorating style greatly resonated with me so I hired her as a consultant to help me with selections for my new house.

I had no idea where to go, who to see, or where to start. Living so far away and being unfamiliar with the Madison area made it especially challenging. Dawn was very organized. She set up numerous appointments with several vendors. We made tremendous progress after one week, beginning with the color scheme and continuing to the flooring, cabinets, and counter tops. Dawn’s ideas and suggestions blended so well with mine that the process went very smoothly with no wasted time. It was actually fun!

There is simply no way I could have accomplished it on my own in such a short amount of time. The help I received from Dawn and her contacts was absolutely priceless! I felt like a ball and chain had been removed. And, I was finally able to start sleeping soundly again with lowered blood pressure and less
stress. Needless to say, I am SO very grateful for everything Dawn has done. Her listening skills, strong work ethic, and fantastic ideas make her a rare gem. I give her my highest recommendation!

"It's rare to find such a combination of professionalism, expertise, and genuine friendship."

I chose Dawn and her team to build our parade home because they came highly recommended, and I am so glad we made that decision. It turned out to be one of the best building experiences I have ever had. Not only did we end up with an amazing home, but we also formed a valuable partnership. Dawn and her team have become more than just builders; they have become friends and collaborators. We are not only enjoying our beautiful new home but also working together to support each other's businesses and share in our mutual success. It's rare to find such a combination of professionalism, expertise, and genuine friendship in the home-building process, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.

"They were friendly, tidy, and meticulous in their work."

It was a pleasure working with Dawn and her craftsmen. We moved on February 1st and with the supply chain issues of the day, it was not an easy task getting us in by our deadline. As the first ones in, we had the pleasure of meeting many of her crew. They were friendly, tidy, and meticulous in their work. We are in love with our spacious screened porch and the landscaped area. We feel like we are in a park! The large slider door at the end of the living area brings the outdoors in. Dawn's company did an excellent job and Dawn has an eye for design, inside and out. Would highly recommend her for your project.

"Even with supply chain issues... dawn had it completed prior to closing."

As a Realtor, I had the pleasure of working with Dawn on an Aging in Place condo she was building. My clients really wanted a 3 season porch. Dawn went above and beyond to make the corrections needed to make that happen. Even with supply chain issues, she surprised us had it completed prior to closing. My clients were very happy with the end result of the entire project. I would highly recommend CLE Consulting as they do just that... consult with you!

"Dawn had wonderful ideas for creating [our] space."

Dawn McIntosh and her crew built our condominium, and we love it. Dawn willingly changed a planned screened porch into a three-season room, and she had wonderful ideas for creating that space. She gave great attention to the details, and she was responsive to all questions we had. We highly recommend Dawn to anyone with building needs.

"best of all, she stayed on schedule and on the budget she gave me."

Dawn did a great job remodeling  my 100 year old farmhouse. She turned a small bedroom into a functional bathroom/laundry space.She also opened a wall and created a large master bedroom  with a  walk-in closet. I loved working with her and her team. I had a hard time visualizing the space and she was able to walk me through all the selections and options, I love how everything turned out!  Best of all, she stayed on schedule and on the budget she gave me. I would recommend working with Dawn McIntosh.

"I knew that i could have confidence and peace of mind in my new home"

Just moved in to my new home and couldn’t be more happy!  From the moment that my new construction home offer was accepted, Dawn McIntosh worked with me as the Designer to facilitate selection of my home finishes and upgrades to ensure that I was completely happy with the end product. This being my first new construction experience, she was always very responsive to my endless questions and kept me comfortable throughout the whole process.  And as the builder, I am very happy with CLE’s construction quality, which I monitored throughout the build and knew when I walked through the front door that I could have confidence and peace of mind in my new home.


And the bonus for me was that the project was completed ahead of schedule and I was able to move in and start enjoying my new home 2 weeks sooner than planned.  Thank you Dawn and CLE for a great experience!

"The project was well coordinated... i was very impressed"

The builder (CLE Consulting LLC) was very knowledgeable in all aspects of home construction, likely a result of several years of experience in the industry.
The most notable attribute was that the company had a team approach for the project; each member of the team specialized in certain areas of construction, effectively communicated and exchanged information with others including myself, resulting in seamless execution of duties.

Overall, the project was well coordinated and completed on schedule. I was very impressed with the job and will build again with the same company!
Thank you CLE Consulting LLC!

"There were no bad surprises, only good ones"

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all the work you did on our recent new construction closing.  I have been involved in the Real Estate and New Home Construction industry for over 40 years.  I have been involved in hundreds of New Construction projects during this time and know full well how difficult the process can be.  My client was treated with the utmost respect and patience while building his custom home.  Everything was done on schedule and budget.  There were no bad surprises, only good ones. 


From the early process of design work to decorating selections and all the way through to the final walk through and post closing follow-up everything was done with a high degree of integrity and professionalism. I  look forward to working with you and prospective clients in their quest to build their Dream Home.  Thanks a bunch Dawn and Chuck.

"she really took the time to understand my style"

As a first time home buyer, this was an extremely new world to me, I had no idea what to expect and naturally felt overwhelmed at times. I met with Dawn to review my floor plan which was surprisingly stress free and fun! She listened as I listed out some key features I wanted and then provided great insight based on her knowledge and experience.


Dawn went the extra mile by suggesting new ideas and adding customized touches such as finding a special mirror for my master bath. I honestly felt like more than just a job, she really took the time to understood my style and the look I was going for. 

I highly recommend Dawn at CLE Consulting, she went above and beyond, and exceeded my expectations!

"Your attention to specifics has been remarkable"

I am writing this letter to thank your company, CLE Consulting, for the job well done on remodeling of our home.  Not only were you able to do an absolutely terrific job, but you came in under budget!! During the time of the construction project, your company has shown diligence and dedication to finish work on time, which greatly impacted our family.  I am sure that you are the only contractor that requires its subs to pick up and tidy up after their day to make sure the area looks presentable and not like a typical “job site.”

Your company was always able to communicate effectively with us, to maintain the efficiency of the development and to resolve any issues that arose. Your attention to the specifics of the construction as well as proper scheduling has been very remarkable, resulting in a job well done.

Again, I would like to express my gratitude in the professional and courteous manner you demonstrated in completing our remodeling project. We would not hesitate to refer CLE Enterprises to anyone who is in need of quality services from a contractor.

"I can now stay in my home forever"

I wanted to be able to stay in my home as long as I could. Dawn McIntosh brought my 76-year-old cottage up to date using the current Aging-in-Place features. 

I love cooking in my new kitchen. It's well designed, with everything within my reach. My bathroom is now safe and convenient with grab bars and a comfort height toilet.


I can now stay in my home forever.
