My wife and I recently had a custom home built by Quality Homes of Port Charlotte. Our experience was outstanding. They do fantastic work and all of the people that we dealt with there were very professional and accommodating. The best thing is the ability to communicate directly with someone that is able to address any potential issues or answer any questions. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a custom home built.

Quality Homes is currently building our custom home. We are very pleased with the superior craftsmanship exhibited and the professionalism of their subcontractors. Jim’s attention to detail and quality exceed my own, which is refreshing. Thank you Jim, Dean, subcontractors and staff.

Janet M

Through a team effort, Jim’s diligence, Lee’s assistance with design, Brittany’s and Tara’s personal attention to our home turned out exactly how we saw it in our mind’s eye. Every concern or question was handled quickly and professionally. We want to thank all of you. When the opportunity presents itself we will confidently recommend Quality Homes.
