“I am pleased to offer this letter of recommendation for Joe Wackerbauer from Okanagan Custom Homes. I purchased a lake front lot in Summerland and researched a handful of builders before deciding to proceed with Joe in 2010. The main reason I chose Joe was the reviews he had from previous clients as well as one of the local building inspectors I contacted. I live in the lower mainland so it was extremely important to me to find a builder that I could trust since most of my contact was over the phone.
Some key points:
* Specifications – everything was built to the specification that we discussed. This was important since I was not on site on a regular basis.
* Budget – Joe worked with me to keep the project on budget as design or specification changes came up. We ended up within 5% of the original construction budget.
* Quality of Work – I was happy with the quality of workmanship of all the trades.
* Communication – Joe never hesitated to contact me with any questions that came up during construction and he was always available when I called him for regular updates.
I would be happy to field any specific questions you may have about Okanagan Custom Homes and Joe Wackerbauer. If I were to build another home in the area, I would not hesitate to work with Joe again.”
