We think that we do a great job of building beautiful houses for families, but we know you can't just take our word for it. As such, we provide the following client testimonials about Tapia Construction.

"We just wanted to tell you how pleased we are with our new house.

We appreciated your professionalism and how pleasant you always were to work with from start to finish on the house. You have built a much more quality home than any other houses built in this development. This house is a real show piece, we are constantly getting compliments on it. We absolutely love it, the house turned out perfect! Thank you!

We will recommend Tapia highly to everyone."

"We have built or renovated homes in the past but this was the first one done 1100 miles away from our current home. Infrequent visits require a lot of trust in the builder to understand and produce your vision. Out trust certainly was not misplaced. Tapia has exceeded our expectations in every way.

The Tapia team consists of excellent subcontractors plus a talented architect and interior designer that made the planning process smooth and easy. One entire day spent with them produced the plans and selected virtually every interior and exterior material needed for construction.

The construction proceeded flawlessly and ahead of schedule. Tapia's site superintendent was there every day to assure the work was top quality and even added architectural embellishments that were not on the original plans. We received weekly updates and pictures during construction. The attention to detail was tremendous and we are delighted with the outcome."

"As the house nears final completion, it is time to say thanks to each of you!

It all starts with a "promise." You promised that this would be a good experience for us, "you kept your promise." You promised you wouldn't abandon us at any time throughout the process and especially at the completion of the job........, again, "you kept your promise!"

We have built 6 homes throughout the years and there is no doubt, this has been the very best experience we have ever had. There were more than enough complexities to ensure this would be a difficult process, but in each and every instance, your team rose to the occasion, communicated with us at the highest of levels and rectified every potential issue that arose.

Matt, I was quite amazed with the attention to detail that you personally provided. Add the specific expertise that each member of the Tapia team provides and you have a perfect recipe for continued success. There is a reason that The Tapia name has withstood the test of time and we are a testament to your success. Please don't hesitate to use us as a reference and if you want to show our home to any potential Tapia customer, be assured our home will be available for inspection and we would be delighted to tell our story.

Thanks again!"

"We had been long time admirers of Tapia Construction while attending the yearly Parade of Homes. We had put off remodeling our pool area because no one's plans were quite to our liking. Little did we know that we would be able to acquire that 'old world' craftsmanship and pride in one's work for our older home.

When we found out that Tapia Construction was available for remodeling, we contacted them and shared our vision . Within the designated period of time, our dreams finally became reality. The end product is beautiful, timeless and every time we view it we are happy we held out for exactly what we wanted. The clean lines and European influence is apparent in every corner of our reconstruction. We have had many compliments by neighbors, friends and complete strangers.

After hearing the nightmare stories of what can occur during construction, we found the Tapia construction team was always prompt, courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable.

We want the community to know about the outstanding craftsmanship that is available to us in this area.

Thank you Tapia Construction Family for making our dreams come true."

"My name is Anthony L. Gonzalez; I am a professional engineer with more that 30 years of training and experience in quality control procedures.

During my many years of training, I learned that in order to obtain reapeated work from a client, it is not sufficient to have a satisfied client; the client must be delighted with the performance of the contractor.

Tapia Construction has built, for more than twenty years, several upscale houses for me and my family, and they have gained an excellent reputation of excellence in honesty, quality and workmanship.

Tapia Construction have always met and exceeded our expectations from the beginning to the end of the construction and during the warranty period.

We are so delighted with the performance of Tapia Construction that I and my family will not consider any other contractor to build our houses."

Anthony L. G.

"Our experience with Tapia was quite pleasing. They are very concerned about customer satisfaction, and it shows in all of their actions, most importantly in their quality workmanship. Likewise, they are also truly dedicated to their product as they continue to stand behind all aspects of their work without question or delay, now nearly two years after construction was completed. The clear choice for our next home will be Tapia once again."

"I would like to extend my utmost appreciation to you and to the members of your organization for their exemplary construction expertise in building my home. I was on the expeditious time schedule, and Matt Wilt worked diligently to meet my move-in date of October 29th - just in time to celebrate my son's 18th birthday! The construction process evolved very smoothly, and the subcontractors were skilled craftsmen.

I continue to tout the quality construction, superior customer service and attention to detail of your company to those interested in purchasing a new home! Your reputation speaks volumes, and I am an extremely pleased customer! In my profession as a real estate consultant, I am often asked the quality of builders in our area, " I respond, for 'top-shelf' service and of a builder, who doesn't commit and under deliver, contact Tapia Homes""

"Dear Mr. Tapia,

My wife and I would like to thank you for the beautiful home that you and your crew built for us. It is a place we can truly call our "dream home". We first met you and your daughter Jacqueline at your home office. At the time, we didn't know what to expect when building a new home. We had many questions and concerns, all of which you addressed and answered clearly. Your sincerity and honesty made it easy for my wife and me to enter into a contract for the construction of our home.

We made frequent visits from New York to see the progress of the construction. Your friendly staff always welcomed and answered any questions we had, especially Mr. Leornard Mathew Wilt.

We made the right choice when we chose Tapia Construction. The craftsmanship and finish is something to be admired, and we truly love it. Our friends love our home and when they ask who built our house, without hesitation I always respond, Tapia Construction. They build quality homes and they are people you can trust. You are the builder that I recommend to all my friends, and most recently, my brother is having his home constructed by you. Thank you."

"Dear Tapia Family,

We tell everyone. " We Love Our Tapia Home!"

Barbara and I have been in our new Tapia home for almost nine months. During that time, we have enjoyed our home more and more each day. The open floor plan is wonderful for entertaining, with an easy flow from the formal living areas to the kitchen/family room area, and last but not least to our outdoor living area. Although as usual, most people gather in our fabulous kitchen. Our custom cabinets have been the talk of many gatherings.

Tapia's special touches truly help make a house a home.

Throughout the building process, your personnel were professional, courteous and most important To us, caring. Our change orders and extras were dealt with fairly and honestly. Your follow up service has been better than we hoped.

Finally, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Tapia Team to anyone looking to build an executive level Home.

Thank You,"

John and Barbara S.

"We have built three homes and renovated three others, as well as two office buildings. In all of our experiences, Tapia has been the most professional and quality-oriented builder/contractor that we have had the pleasure to deal with. In construction, difficulties will always arise. When this happens, Tapia, Ed, Matt, Mike & Uncle Fred guide you through the process to make it a positive experience. Their concern for quality begins with the site preparation and continues throughout the building process, right down to the final cleaning. Tapia is definitely one of Florida's top builders."

"In 2006, our family selected Eduardo "Ed" Tapia and Tapia Construction, Inc. to build our new home in south Lakeland. What a wonderful choice we made and an experience it was! Ed and his entire family worked diligently and thoroughly with us for over an entire year ... first with the design that we wanted and developing the plans and then overseeing the entire construction process from start to finish. Our home was selected for entry into the Polk County Builder's Association Fall Parade of Homes for 2006 and won four (4) different awards, including most importantly, best quality construction!! Ed, Mike and Matt spent countless hours inspecting our home and their subcontractors ensuring that our home would be constructed with the best materials, workmanship and attention to detail. We are extremely proud of our home and would recommend, without reservation, Tapia Construction to anyone considering building a home in central Florida."

"We would like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation for the beautiful home that you have built for us. This is the second home that we have built and the first with your company. Our experience with your company was very smooth, precise and accommodating. As you my recall, we were working with a deadline due to the fast sell of our previous home. Your company understood the needs of our family and made it possible for us to move in and close on both homes the same day. For that, we are very appreciative.

Since we have been in our home, we have had numerous compliments on the extreme detail and the craftsmanship of the home. It is very obvious even to the common eye of the high quality in which the home was built and the materials used to build it. With that being said, we have also had many people whom which admire our home actually stop to ask who the builder was. Our home is filled with many intricate details that are not even considered upgrades, which is what we were searching for with a builder. We do a lot of entertaining in our home; and with family and friends, the floor plan of the home provides the perfect amount of space to do so. We are extremely pleased and could not ask for more in a home.

Thank you again for the opportunity to express our gratitude. We are looking forward to doing business again with you in the future."
