Dear Dave,

Most people who build or remodel a home come away with mixed feelings about the process. So, I feel especially fortunate to be able to recommend Konkol Custom Homes & Remodeling based on the incredible job you did on both my home renovation in the early nineties and my home on Lake Maitland last year.

You and your staff shepherded me through a process that could be very overwhelming. Your organization and assistance made the decision-making process feel much more manageable, while your insight and suggestions gave me the professional perspective as well. It was clear that it mattered to you that the job was done right. At all times, you were responsive to any requests or concerns I brought, ending each conversation with “Is there anything else I can do for you?” I’m fairly certain that isn’t common for most builders!

Most significant of all is the integrity with which you run Konkol Custom Homes & Remodeling. During each phase, you demonstrated values of honesty, caring, and concern for all involved. It’s a nice feeling to have guests comment on how lovely my home is, and it always impresses them to hear how positive my experience was. Thank you for creating a beautiful home for my family.

– Nancy Colling

Dear Dave,

I am writing to you to share how delighted I am with my new home. As you know, this is the second home you have built for me and this experience was even better than the last. At the beginning of construction, you indicated a 10-month delivery date, but WOW to have my home completed and delivered in less than 6 months was incredible. I never felt you were rushing the process, but I could tell from my interactions with the subcontractors that you were orchestrating events in an excellent way. The service you provided me reminded me of my experience when I stay at the Ritz Carlton, every conversation ended with “Is there anything else I can do for you?”- without fail you delivered on all requests and made me feel comfortable with my choices. I could not ask for a better experience or better built home. Thank you again for a truly wonderful process and a stunning home that I can build family memories in.

– Ladelle Larson

Dear Dave,

You and your team are more than fantastic! You deserve more praise than I can possibly give. I truly feel privileged that we have had the opportunity to have our home built under your service. What’s more amazing than your book is the fact that you actually live up to the expectations that are outlined in it. Imagine if every builder out there had to write a book on how to provide a service before they could put a shingle up? I don’t think most could live up to their word as consistently as you have.

– Dr. George Elias

Dear Dave,

As you got a hint of, I am a relater, a communicator and someone who loves comfort and ease. I am also not a millionaire and I take the responsibility of managing the dollars that I do have, seriously. So, when embarking upon the overwhelming project of performing renovations to a house, in efforts to transform it into the home that offers me some of the comfort and ease that I seek, I have never experienced a better business fit than I did with you. Your communication style, honesty, experience, organization skills, sensitivity (to budget) and your overall reach for excellence, have left me with a rare level of respect for you and your team.

If ever we need to renovate again, I won’t use any builder other than yourself. I also recommend none other.


– The Ryan Family

Dear David & Staff,

Thank you for making our vision for our family into a beautiful reality. Since our initial meeting, we remained truly confident in your professional service. The finished product exceeded our expectations, and we are truly grateful to have met you, may the Lord continue to bless the work of your hands abundantly!

– Roman & Evelyn Rodriguez


You may not know, but I just built a home on Lake Sue. We moved right in before Thanksgiving. I met with our builder, Dave Konkol, to tie up some loose ends that (I feel) most builders wouldn’t bother with. Dave does. For example, I met with the Landscape Architect to deal with some water runoff caused by my neighbor. It had nothing to do with Dave but he came to the meeting to make sure everything was OK. Building a home with Dave was a GREAT experience.  We finished 3 months ahead of schedule and under budget!

We love our new home. If I were to start building another tomorrow it would be with Dave.

– Gary Mackintosh

Dear Dave,

We were completely satisfied with every aspect of this experience. In particular, I appreciate the attention to detail that you gave not only to the work but to staying in communication with us, meeting the budget and addressing our various concerns. Your professionalism, and the skill of your subcontractors, made the total experience very enjoyable. We continue to recommend your services to all of our friends and associates.

– Jeffrey P. Wieland

Dave & Team,

I wanted to write to you and your team and extend my gratitude for the new home I now have. As I sit here in my new home, I look around and can’t believe how beautiful it is! This home has exceeded all expectations, your team kept me within budget, with consistent communications, and in the end, there was no sacrifice on quality. The home was built right by the right people – people I could trust throughout the entire process.

Thank you for making a dream come true and making it a wonderful experience. If I ever need to build again Konkol Custom Homes & Remodeling would be my first phone call.

– The Wiggins Family

Good Morning,

Andy and I were watching the bright orange sun come up this morning and realized what a beautiful postcard we get every day. Last night he and the boys after basketball used the hot tub and it was just like being at a resort. Thank you for making this dream house come to life; each day we discover something new. As the “newness” wears off it begins to take on the comfort of a real home. You have a talented team, and the details set you apart from all of the rest.”

– Have a blessed day, The Greenberg’s

“Dave, we wanted to thank you so much for helping us through all the little issues, especially the pantry–your sign says it all–you really do build with integrity and we are really pleased that we’re working with you.”

– Howard Schieferdecker, Mayor of Maitland

“I am the new owner of one of the homes you built in Baldwin Park. I am delighted to be in this home, and since you are the builder of this home, I wanted to give you some feedback. One of your Construction Managers just spent an hour and a half with me answering questions and advising me about warranty issues. Since I previously custom built a home with another builder – and ended up with a lot of problems – you can imagine my delight to be in this home. It is not only well-built, but the service your company provided was a real bonus. I recognize that your company has no obligation to me, since I am not your client. And yet, I received professional and courteous service as if I were a paying client. If this is how you treat people who aren’t event clients, I truly recommend Konkol Custom Homes to anyone looking for a custom builder for their next luxury home. It is a pleasure to be living in a Konkol Custom Home”.

 – Mr. Paul Stevens

Dearest Dave and the Entire Konkol Team,

It is with a very warm heart that I write to you today.  Your entire company has made a lifelong dream come true for me.  I have always dreamed of living in a home like this, and I am very grateful to your entire team for making it a reality for me.  Tremendous thanks go to Laurel, Rey and Kevin for the day to day making of this dream.  Thank you, I am enjoying every moment of it.

– Lots of Love and Respect to all of you, Nalini, Harry and the Kids.


We have lived in the house you built for us for over a year now and we love it! We have no regrets. It is very exciting to move into a new home, but now over a year later my appreciation for what you did grows. Not only is your knowledge and understanding exceptional, but I found you to be a man of character. A person may have great knowledge and intellect, but if he lacks character he then falls short. David, I can truly say your character is your number one asset. I have a deep respect for you. I could always trust you. Because of your resolute honesty and character, Carol and I never questioned your motives for any of your decisions.

– Mark B. Wickham

“In my position as President of South Trust Bank of Orlando, I have frequent occasions to deal with contractors on an ongoing basis in the construction of my branches. I know that the hassle I have experienced in that regard at the tail end of the job for service and follow-up is always a pain. I was ready for a similar experience with our new home and found just the opposite. Your staff works diligently and expeditiously to service all our punch list items and ongoing follow-up for assurance that we are completely satisfied. The quality of your workmanship in the job is readily apparent.”

– William C. Beiler

“Lori and I would like to express again our sincere thanks and appreciation for building our new home. We spent a considerable amount of time planning and interviewing various builders in the community prior to construction and could not have selected a better builder.”

– Jeff Seidl

“We would like to say how pleased we are with our home. We are appreciative of your knowledge, ability and integrity. Your experience and honesty gave us great peace of mind from the very beginning stages of “homebuilding” and continues so today. Thank you for being a man of honor.”

– Mr. and Mrs. H.R. Baker

“We just wanted to share with you that after two years of living in our home you built for us, we continue to get compliments – and “Who was your Builder?” We share your name with pride and also let them know that not only are we proud of our home, we really enjoyed the building experience and that is because of you, David. We especially like the feeling that at the end of the process of building a home we can say we made a friend with our builder.”

– Roger and Joanie Neiswender

“We wanted to take a moment to thank you for building our “dream home”. We are so happy with it and all of your help in making it possible. All along the way, from the drawing stage to the final steps, your suggestions and advice were so important. We felt like you truly had our best interest at heart throughout the entire process.”

– Albert and Cathy Curnan

“After our initial meeting with you, we felt confident in our choice to have you build our home. Your knowledge, professionalism and sincerity while working with us towards making our ideas and visions of our home a reality, are greatly appreciated. There exists a strong sense of pride and security knowing that our home is not only aesthetically beautiful but professionally constructed. We would not have any reservations in doing it all over again (with you of course). We love showing off our new home and telling our family and friends about David Konkol.”

– Kevin P. Fall

“Unlike horror stories we have heard about from other people who have built homes, the process of planning a home was a truly wonderful and exciting experience! If my husband and I were to ever build another home, we wouldn’t think of using anyone other than Dave Konkol.”

– Bernadette Britz-Parker

“We have been enjoying our home for almost 4 years. Everyday it becomes more evident that the quality of workmanship that went into the construction of our home was of the highest level. I can’t tell you how many compliments Kathy and I have received about the design of our home and the meticulous detail employed by your crew.”

– Robert W. Smith
Vice President of Sales and Marketing
Better Business Forms. Inc

“We just would like to express how much we appreciate your help in this building process. It has been great comfort for us both to have you involved. We really appreciate all that you do and for who you are.”

-Ken and Sue Weas

“It has been two months since we moved into our new house, and everyday Joyce and I are reminded of how fortunate we are that we selected you as our homebuilder. We could not be happier with our house and we owe much of it to you. You exceeded our expectations and for that we are most grateful.”

-Matthew and Joyce Cox
