Alan M. Levy,
President, Levy Realty Advisors Inc..

“During my 28 years working with contractors in South Florida, I have never experienced such a smooth, problem-free transition from start to finish on any construction project of this magnitude. Danto Builders’ supervision and coordination for the trades and subcontractors workmanship was excellent. They were proactive in problem solving, as all issues were resolved in the field without one documented problem. Inspections were conducted without any delay or rejection. The architect’s final inspection found the project very much to his satisfaction, not one problem had surfaced from start to finish. Additionally, Danto Builders saved us $88,000. I would highly recommend Danto Builders for any construction jobs in the future.”

It became essential to our company and to our tenants that we complete the job of repairing this building quickly and efficiently so we could all get back to business.”

“We were able to accomplish this with your speed, accuracy and open-book policy. We were all back in business in record time! Thank you and your team for your tremendous effort in getting the job done.”

Chris and Gena Osceola,
Seminole Tribe of Florida

“Gena and I would like take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the most outstanding job you did in fixing and completing our new home. When you took this job the home was a complete disaster from every aspect due to our previous builder’s lack of knowledge, dedication and pride, something you displayed on a daily basis. Throughout the project we were amazed at how dedicated you were in ensuring quality workmanship, and making sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it. You showed us what it was like to work with a true professional.”

“Now that we are settled in our new home we are truly delighted with the result you were able to achieve. We both feel that you really went above and beyond your call of duty as our homebuilder and it shows with all of the ideas and recommendations you gave us. You have helped us build a home that we can be proud of and enjoy for many years to come and I would absolutely highly recommend OSBD/DB to anyone looking for a quality contractor.”

“I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Housing Department to express our appreciation to your organization of the timely completion of the renovation to the 59-18 Town homes project on the Hollywood Seminole Indian Reservation.

At the onset, this project took on special challenges, with keeping residents in place during renovation, and special attention to safety and site security. Your subcontractors and staff rose to the occasion both by bringing the project within budget of the original scope of work and before the completion deadline.

Your professional expertise and input was well accepted by both the architect and myself during the course of the work and we look forward to having a lasting relationship with your organization and the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Housing Department.”

Melissa Garvey,
Quadomain Condominium II Association, Inc.

“Dear Debbie –
ABSOLUTELY!!!
We are very happy with the quality of your work. Danielle Lopata brought over the Recreation Engineer, Frank Iglesias and he also agreed.

Our Engineer, Angelo Miranda, was extremely pleased as was our entire Board.

What amazed me as well was the attention to detail in the book on Crystal Place that I was shown. That is organization to the max and exactly how I would like to see a job run here.

Thank you for your generosity in helping us to resolve this issue.

You will be first on our list when it is time to do our restoration.

I was raving about your work to a Board Member at Brittania next door and she was going to call your company for a quote on fixing her patio area. Her name is Roslyn Dormer and she attended both lectures.

Thank you again. I hope to be contacting you soon.
Sincerely,
Melissa”

Michael Levy
Leasing Agent, Levy Realty Advisors Inc.

“Leasing at the new Dania Design Center is up 100% and a large part of that is due to your design and construction of phase I. The previous contractor almost ruined, not only our buildings, but our reputation and image. You and your team of professionals not only managed the construction process, but got us back on track with minimal delays.

Since the projects completion, we have received an overwhelmingly positive response. The facade renovations attract new potential tenants, agents and brokers, as well as several local building owners. We are looking forward to your input and bid for phase II mainly because we know and trust that you will deliver a quality job, on time, and within budget.”

“I want to thank Danto Builders again for putting in the extra effort in undertaking the Cuchina D’ Angelo design and build project in the middle of the season. I couldn’t believe that you got our Certificate of Occupancy within 40 days, given the average is three to four months! I was especially surprised that you were able to accomplish this given the scope of the work, including demolition, redesigning the kitchen and dining room and calling in an architect to draw ‘as built’ based on your design.

The compliments that the Cuchina D’ Angelo receives on its decor and finishes are directly contributed to the concepts, design and finishes of which you provided.”
