What our clients say about us:
“I have worked with a number of different builders over the years and can say without a doubt that the level of quality and pride in the work from Malmquist and all of their subcontractors is absolutely on another level.”
Tyler, Bear and Hayley were always extremely professional and very personable. Bear has one of the best attitudes of any person that I have had the pleasure of working with. He always had a positive attitude and was more than willing to help in any way that he could. Both Bear and Tyler had exceptional communication skills. There were many times that Bear and/or Tyler and I had discussions via text or phone calls which is understandable when someone is in the field and does not have the time or accessibility to communicate via email. More often than not these communications were relayed again later via email so that everyone involved was aware of the discussions that were being had.
I have worked with a number of different builders over the years and can say without a doubt that the level of quality and pride in the work from Malmquist and all of their subcontractors is absolutely on another level. It was clear to me from early on in the project that Tyler and Bear were not at all interested in cutting corners and strive for perfection in every aspect of the build. Throughout the entire process Bear had asked multiple times about things that they could improve on such as communication, quality of work, scheduling, etc. It was clear that Malmquist was not only interested in turning over an exceptional product but also to provide the best possible experience for their customer.
We absolutely could not have had a better experience. I have worked with many builders and hundreds of subcontractors and without question this is by far the best group I have ever dealt with. If I were ever to have another project in the Whitefish area I wouldn’t even think about using anybody other than Malmquist.

“With Malmquist, we were extremely appreciative and pleased with the quality of work, the timeliness, and the accuracy on the estimate.”
We underwent a 7000 square foot house construction with Malmquist in 2017 on Whitefish Lake. We have previously gone through home construction before and our experience with Malmquist far exceeded our first experience. With Malmquist, we were extremely appreciative and pleased with the quality of work, the timeliness, and the accuracy on the estimate.
We worked most closely with Bear and Wilson and loved them both. When we had an issue or a question, there was never a delay or a lack of attention to detail, to getting the problem solved. Also, for us new to town, they really took extra effort to welcome us into the community. We also worked with their colleague, Barb Cooke, interior designer, who was wonderful and helped make the project flow well.
Lastly, we had to move out of our rental by a certain date and they got us into our new house, as promised, on time. If we built another house, we would use them again, of course. They are wonderful to work with and do what they say they are going to do. Wonderful people, wonderful company.

“We would highly recommend Malmquist Construction not only for their construction knowledge, their network of high quality sub contractors, their dedication, or for what they can do for your project, but rather, for WHO they are as individuals and as a team.”
Malmquist Construction helped us bring our dream to life in the building of Snow Bear Chalets, our three, award-winning vacation rental chalets in Whitefish, Montana. As the World’s First Ski-in/Ski-out Luxury Treehouses, located slope side at Whitefish Mountain Resort, we needed a construction firm that matched our high-quality vision. We found that in Malmquist, and in our project manager, Bear.
Due to their experience and expertise, rather than just building our chalets, Malmquist helped us create a work of art that has garnered international acclaim from Architectural Digest to Travel and Leisure and hundreds of other international reviews as well. Bear’s vast construction knowledge helped us create a quality venture that we can be proud of for the next 50 years. But even more important, his kind spirit and constant smile helped us not only get through the tough parts of the construction process, but made visiting the job site an enjoyable rather than stressful experience.
We would highly recommend Malmquist Construction not only for their construction knowledge, their network of high quality sub contractors, their dedication, or for what they can do for your project, but rather, for WHO they are as individuals and as a team. They brought success to a very challenging project, and did it with a smile. Who else could build Snow Bear Chalets, but a man named Bear?

“After hearing many friends tell stories of home building debacles, we were thrilled to see our project come in on time and within budget.”
Malmquist built our dream home, and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. After hearing many friends tell stories of home building debacles, we were thrilled to see our project come in on time and within budget. Our project manager was great about staying in regular communication with new site photos every week to update us on progress and discuss any issues. The quality of the work throughout the entire house is excellent, and the Malmquist team was first-class all the way through. They have our highest recommendation!

“The team is extremely knowledgeable, exceptional communicators, dedicated to quality craftsmanship–while never losing sight of the project’s budget & timeline.”
I work with several construction firms each year building and renovating multi-million dollar homes, so I have some frame of reference when I speak to the considerable skill set of Malmquist Construction. The team is extremely knowledgeable, exceptional communicators, dedicated to quality craftsmanship–while never losing sight of the project’s budget & timeline. The most impressive aspect of working with the Malmquist team is their integrity and the sheer FUN we had on the project. Equally important: the end result was nothing short of stunning. I was actually a little sad to see the project end. Don’t think I’ve EVER said that about a build.

“With their attention to detail and quality, as well as dedication to our vision, it was obvious to see they have a passion for what they do every day.“
“When we began our first major building project, we had maximum expectations and minimum knowledge. Working with Malmquist Construction made the process more enjoyable than we could have anticipated, and they more than lived up to their values. The friendships that we have developed as a result of the builder/client RELATIONSHIP will be long-lasting. The team that Tyler put together is a testament to his LEADERSHIP. The wealth of knowledge and diverse personalities made our experience unforgettable. With their attention to detail and quality, as well as dedication to our vision, it was obvious to see they have a PASSION for what they do every day. This experience more than exceeded our expectations and that is because of the INTEGRITY of the team at Malmquist Construction. They were approachable, honest, and committed to making our home away from home something we would love. We would not hesitate to recommend Malmquist Construction to anyone looking for a team of experts who can provide a quality product. They have our stamp of approval and “Certificate of EXCELLENCE”.”

“It is a work of art that everyone of our visitors falls in love with.”
Nearly every morning we count our blessings when we wake up in our dream home. Thanks to our project manager, and the talented team on site, out custom-designed home is not only practical and highly efficient–it is a work of art that everyone of our visitors falls in love with. The quality of the work and communication were outstanding. Five Star rating!
-Northern Lights Owner
“This project was our sixth home project and was by far the best experience. We would work with Malmquist anytime!”
The Malmquist team was amazing to work with-we would do it again in a heartbeat! Everyone involved in our construction project was professional and easy to work with. We were most satisfied with the quality of our home-down to the smallest details and were very happy with the response to our punch list items. This project was our sixth home project and was by far the best experience. We would work with Malmquist anytime!
-Water’s Edge owner
“Building a custom home is not an easy process and even though our home was fairly complicated, everyone at Malmquist worked very hard to make it an enjoyable process.”
Our experience working with Malmquist Construction was “over the top”. All aspects of the process from the initial planning thru the construction process along with all the great communication and decision making made our experience wonderful. Building a custom home is not an easy process and even though our home was fairly complicated, everyone at Malmquist worked very hard to make it an enjoyable process. We have been in our home now for 10 years, have had great follow up and enjoy its beauty more and more each day.
-Bootjack Lake Retreat owner
After almost a year working together on a new construction project, I thoroughly enjoyed the quality, efficiency, and social aspects related to Malmquist. Bear was always ten steps ahead in offering up solutions instead of problems in regard to working through tough weather conditions; he and I adjusted any essential design elements as the project evolved; and he and his team kept me abreast on all construction changes that could impact any of the design. The end result was a team effort and the entire process from start to finish was nothing but enjoyable and collaborative. I highly recommend working with Malmquist Construction.

We have enjoyed a great working relationship with Malmquist Construction since 2002. This relationship has encompassed dozens of successful projects ranging from a 300 square foot simple boathouse to a highly detailed 13,000 square foot log home to sleek contemporary homes and everything in between. No matter the size and complexity of the project, for the team at Malmquist Construction the goals are always the same: attention to quality and detail while executing the design and serving as client advocates and stewards of the budget.
As designers we appreciate their collaboration and enthusiasm on unique projects and openness to exploring new options while referencing proven methods and materials . They see the value in what we do and working together as a team to fulfill the projects goals. They also share similar values in engaging our clients and creating trust and a positive building experience for them.
Our clients appreciate their thorough budgets, hands-on project management, ease of working together, emphasis on client satisfaction and impeccable execution.
We highly recommend Malmquist Construction to our clients and feel they offer the organization, experience, quality, and value to achieve success in any project they undertake.

I highly recommend Malmquist Construction to all our clients who are building new or remodeling. I have found through my experience that they have the highest level of respect for their clients and their homes. Their vast building knowledge and skilled project managers ensure a smooth and pleasurable experience for the home owners and the entire extended design team. Communication, teamwork, problem solving, and consistency in great building practices are some of the reasons Tate Interiors loves to work with Malmquist Construction.
Heidi Tate – Tate Interiors
I have had the pleasure of working with the Malmquist Construction team on several residences over the years. They have a reliable track record, accurate cost estimates, organized job site, attention to detail, and on-time completion. But what truly makes them a cut above is their respect for the client’s architectural design intent. Through good communication, they share the client’s vision for the project and have the skill to achieve it. I give them my highest recommendation and will certainly welcome the opportunity to collaborate again in the future.
Ross Anderson – Ross G. Anderson Architect
I have worked with Malmquist Construction over the past 7-8 years and have found them to be a top tier construction company. They can build any house, whether its a rustic mountain lodge, modern/contemporary or anything in between. Large or small, custom or commercial, they have the right crew to bring your dream to life. The communication and involvement of their entire team, makes any building process seamless and fun. They lead with integrity and finish with the quality that any discerning client will appreciate. We highly recommend them to any client no matter the size, budget or scope of the construction.
Kevin Richardson – Timber Forge Design
I am an established Real Estate agent in Whitefish and have worked with Malmquist Construction for quite a few years selling homes they have built and putting clients in touch with them to have their homes built. The one critical thing as an agent when selling a home is how the home inspection goes as this is one of our main reasons for buyers to terminate. I can say I have yet to have anything negative come back from an inspector. They always comment on the craftsmanship of the home being top end and with no short cuts taken. I love working with this company and guarantee if you are looking to have a home built you will not be disappointed.
Mike Anderson – National Parks Realty
We have partnered with Malmquist Construction over the past 20 years and enjoy working with them on each unique project. The Malmquist team is professional and approachable and are customer driven. They start each project as if it were their only one and focus on quality, staying within the budget and the time frame . We are always honored to partner with Malmquist and know the project will be an exciting one.
Hunter Dominick – Hunter & Company Interior Design
I truly enjoyed working with Malmquist Construction on the Whitefish Cabin. Your construction is some of the highest level I’ve seen as far as quality and detail.
