‘Now that we have been in the new house for a few months I wanted to write and tell you how pleased we have been with the work of your firm and with the outstanding quality of the finished product. As I think you know, I have been a practicing
architect throughout the Southeast for more than thirty years. During that time my firm has been responsible for more than $2.5 billion in construction projects and I have built nine residences for my family and immediate family members- so I think it is safe to say that I have experience dealing with contractors of all size and description and I appreciate the differences. Working with you and your finn has been an absolute joy and I would not hesitate to use your services again if the opportunity arises. You have been successful in keeping the neighbors and the “very difficult to deal with” Sea Colony ARB happy and you have produced a final result which has met and surpassed the expectations of all the parties involved. We have received many compliments from others within the community here and have had absolute strangers stop by to say how much they like the finished product. On top of that, the final bill was so close to the original budget as to be almost perfect. It doesn’t get much better than that. Most importantly, however, has been the absolute top drawer performance of you and others within the firm who have worked on the project. Every time I had the need to talk with someone from Browdy and Browdy about the project I was met with utmost professionalism and responsiveness. When we have had the inevitable after completion issues arise your staff and subcontractors have jumped in and dealt with the issue immediately and resolved it within record time. I can tell you, based on my personal experience, that this is not the case with the majority of your competitors and is a record of which you should be proud. Please accept my thanks for a job well done. If I can ever serve as a reference for your firm, or if I can simply answer someone’s questions, please do not hesitate to call on me.’

“Having to build a unique multi-million dollar home that was very unusual for Northeast Florida, it was a hard decision on which builder we should choose to build our dream home. Having being in the construction field for 25 years, I knew not every builder could build this house. Fortunately
for us, Browdy & Browdy was the perfect choice. Richard Browdy and David Rinzler were fabulous, from the initial meeting to the finished product. Their professionalism, experience, and attention to detail are unmatched. They hired a superintendent just for our project and he couldn’t have been a better choice. I hope not to build another multi-million dollar house again (because this one is our dream house) but if I had to, they would be my only choice. I highly recommend them.”

“Browdy and Browdy completed an extensive renovation of our 1940’s riverfront cottage. They provided a very unique concierge type general contracting service. David was very knowledgeable about the process, kept us very informed and all financial matters were open book and discussed up front. I would highly recommend Browdy and
Browdy to take the stress out of your next building project.”

Q? Did they disappear after move-in?
A. Perhaps a new home-owners biggest worry is what happens after they move in. A builder who has made himself available to answer questions and respond to all reasonable warranty issues is an important indicator of a builder's long-term commitment to the quality of his homes and the ultimate satisfaction of their owners.
Q? Do they have a good reputation? Have they won any awards or recognition’s?
A. Word-of-mouth is most important when you are trying to establish the reputation of your builder. Make sure your builder provides you with a list of contact names and numbers from their client base. Contact at least two or three past clients for a reference.
Q? Do they share your vision? Are they a team player?
A. It is very important to explain in detail your concept and wish list to the builder. Make sure the builder and his team fully understand and have a clear grasp of your vision. Ask questions, and more importantly, make sure you get the answers you are seeking.
Q? Are they committed to delivering what you want in a timely manner and within your desired budget? Do they have quality control?
A. Make sure your custom builder can and will perform up to your expectations and live up to your standards without cutting corners or without compromising your expectations for a quality, finished product. If there is a compromise, it should be your choice.
Q? Is my custom home builder financially responsible?
A. Make sure your builder has strong financial resources and multiple lender references qualifying them to complete your home. Financial responsibility is an essential aspect in the success of your construction project. Check their references.
Q? May we visit our new home site whenever we like?
A. Being allowed the freedom to visit your home - under proper notification due to insurance and safety, lets the client feel like they are involved and part of the team. Being able to make custom changes throughout the building construction process is paramount and creates the flexibility of design, which is what building a custom home is all about.
