My father was a custom home builder in Miami where I was born and raised. When I moved to Naples over 20 years ago, I thought I could roll into town and every architect and Realtor would instantly recognize how good of a builder I was and hand me work on a silver platter...….Well, that is not the way things worked out. They call it a "Good old Boys Network" for a reason. With this reality sinking in, I knew I had to prove myself one project at a time. I drove the neighborhoods where I wanted to build hoping for my big break and It finally came when I met a man at his mailbox checking his mail. I asked him if he needed any work done on his house and he said "I actually want to tear it down and build a new home". Some time later, we started the process of designing and building a new custom waterfront home for him and quickly the talk of the town was all about this "new" builder who was fair priced, supervised his jobsites and built a high quality home.
Now, after all these years, I have assembled a team of people that care as much as I do about the clients and have a passion for building quality homes for a fair price. As the awards for our homes have piled up over the last few years, I am grounded by the understanding that we came from very humble beginnings and I remain thankful for each opportunity that has come my way.
