“It is with great gratitude and sincere appreciation, Barrett and I say thank you for the beautiful work you accomplished at 1210 Washington.

It was a faith effort from the beginning established between a well recommended contractor and absentee owners. I can’t think of one, “oh my gosh”, moments during the entire process. It was a well oiled machine from packing the u-haul to turning on the dryer. You were there every step of the way to make the move-in as easy as possible.

Thank you again for giving us 110% of your effort to make the July 4th deadline. It was a true delight to work with a professional whose word was truth and his skill exceptional.

Toast to a gold star.”

“I live on Waddell Avenue in Key West a block away from the project that your starting at the corner of Waddell and Reynolds. I just wanted to drop you a note to say we were thrilled to see your company’s sign go up on the lot, since we know that you have worked on some of the most beautiful homes on the island (in our opinion).

We are excited to see what develops there and wish you and your clients the best of luck throughout the project.

“As an architect, I have been intimately involved with the construction profession throughout the US for over 30 years. During this period I have been exposed to countless general contractors and tradesmen and have had
both good and bad experiences. When Cindi and I were looking for a contractor to build our home in Key West, our hope was to find someone who we could trust explicitly as well as someone who appreciated and shared our passion for detail and quality and was able to maintain a competitive perspective. We talked to a total of four general contractors during our interview process and ultimately felt a greater comfort level with Mark Smith. Throughout the 11 month construction process, Mark consistently displayed total control of the site, schedule and costs. He met or exceeded all of our high expectations and at the end of the project, he is both a contractor whom I would recommend highly as well as someone whom I can happily call a friend.

In addition to my praise for Mark, I must equally compliment the quality of workmanship and effort of his staff and sub-contractors. In every case, they are the best and share Mark’s commitment to excellence. There were not many days that Cindi did not stop by the job site and I know she misses those coffee and donut breaks with “the guys”.

Cindi and I cannot thank Mark and all of the rest that worked on our project enough for making the journey an enjoyable one..”
