About our Company

For nearly two decades, Williams Designers & Builders has been building some of the finest homes in Chicago’s beautiful Northern suburbs. With extensive experience and an unwavering passion for excellence, we transform the average into the exceptional. With style, grace, and timeless beauty, every Williams home is a masterpiece in design and workmanship.


At Williams, we can proudly say that over 90 percent of our business has come from past client’s recommendations and referrals. Here is a sampling of their comments. "Brad's vision and ideas sold us. He put forth the ideas, but we worked together as a team. The quality of his product was excellent. His subs were very professional and always there when they were needed. Brad has a lot of pride and passion in his work, but he is also realistic – there were no major surprises. You rarely hear people who are very happy at the end, but we’re very happy."

“Williams is not just a builder. They are the best contractor we’ve ever worked with in terms of quality, responsiveness, creativity, and ideas. Brad brought creative ideas to the table before we even put shovel to ground. His garage tear-down recommendation resulted in an addition that perfectly complimented the lines of our existing home. The quality and reliability of his subcontractors was also outstanding. Brad and his entire team were extraordinarily responsive – very involved and very dedicated throughout the process.”
- Jim G.
“We’ve completed 3 major projects with Williams over the last 13 years. We bid the first project and automatically used Brad for the second and third. Brad’s personal touch and his team were great. Their complete price included everything and they didn’t underestimate any of the allowances. They were sensitive to scheduling and the delivered date. They were very courteous, conscientious, and honest – always respectful of our living space. We have a complete level of trust and comfort with Brad and his team.”
- Jim C.
“Williams was a referral to us. We were already comfortable with the quality of Brad’s work, with his subcontractors, and with his bid. Relationships for us were key. Brad was great to work with. He brought along great ideas and problem-solved upfront. His subcontractors were a great team – very efficient and always on schedule. Even when our outside tiling fell apart, Brad picked up the pieces and stayed on-time and on-budget. I have highly recommended Williams to others.”
- Gretchen C.
"I totally trust Brad - his great experience, his ability, his opinion, his taste, his eye for knowing. He always does the right thing and not just the easy thing. He is always confident and calm - nothing is ever a problem. Brad stays within budget of time and money every time. And, he is always considerate of my concerns regarding our house. That's why we've stayed with Williams for 4 different projects over the last 10 years."

“Their in-house cabinetry lines are a huge advantage over other builders. We were able to get exactly what we wanted – antique finish, distressing, and color – great quality at a much better price.”
