    I have been fortunate to work with David Kellman throughout the last ten years at two of the finest communities in the Northern Palm Beaches; Old Palm Golf Club and Harbour Isles.  These luxury homes were built with high level of craftsmanship with an average selling price of $1,500,00 to $5,000,000.  David builds an excellent home.  David’s responsibilities as Construction Manager interlaced with my duties as a Developer’s Representative and Sales Associate on a daily basis.

    Most homes were built to meet the specific requirements of each Buyer. Most of our buyers have built homes and at this price point expect a high level of professionalism and service.  His care for the client and superior service lasts long after the homeowner occupies their new home.  David’s strength of effective communication with vendors and subcontractors provides a benefit to his client of a quality built home with zero defects.

    I have found David to be easily accessible, on schedule with the delivery of a complex project, and able to exceed his client’s expectation.  I would recommend David.

    ~ Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales, Old Palm Golf Club

    In a nutshell, what you get with David is a project that is on time.  He was on budget, absolutely no hassle and with constant communication.  David is that rare builder that is fun to work with.

    We have a second in Florida that we purchased last summer.  We wanted to revise many of the details and structure in the house – certainly, we can provide more detail.  He gutted and changed the bathroom, removed walls, changed window framing, created what looks like minor tweaks to the house that really took great ingenuity.

    We recommended him to another family and they can tell you the same story.  He is just fabulous!

    Please accept this letter of recommendation on behalf of David A Kellman Custom Homes.

    Two years ago, my next door neighbors embarked on a second story addition to their home, and employed David's company for the project. During the course of the construction, it was impressive to see the dedication David displayed as he spent every day on site, and with great attention to each detail. The new addition went flawlessly.

    During this time, David and I spoke almost weekly about the progress of his remodeling project and I was fortunate to get to know him personally and professionally. It was through watching him work and discussing the building process that I sought him out when I made the decision to build my new home.

    It is a pleasure to see a contractor take such a personal interest in his work and to finish as strongly as he begins a project. I am happy to recommend his company to anyone seeking a professional quality construction project for their own residence. Thank you.
