Our Raving Fans
The Adams Family Testimonial
From: John Adams
Sent: Monday, February 15, 2010
We have just seen that our recent emails with Carl were posted on "Our Raving Fans" - we are very pleased with that, however, it has highlighted to us that we should get around to sending a full testimonial.
We would like to offer the following message:
The Adams Family Experience
We have a love of Cape Coral that has developed over a number of years, along with our knowledge of the area.
After we had secured our lot in the desired location, our main objective was to build a quality home that would maximize the setting and the views.
We knew to look no further than Aubuchon Homes, and very soon focused on the Sterling Collection.
From the first meetings with Brian, viewing and discussing design options - it was great fun planning the pool; lanais; summer kitchen, and in particular the observation decks. We would also like to acknowledge Allen Miloff's input.
We found Linda's assistance and advice invaluable in making the right selections for the house - a combination of good taste and experience.
Then to the Master Builder, Carl - the epitome of passion and professionalism. Carl's commitment to high standards and perfection is unsurpassed. We knew from the 'get-go' that our project was in safe hands.
Aubuchon Homes/Sterling Collection certainly achieved the overriding goal to "marry the home and design to the site". The views from all around the house are spectacular, especially overlooking the canals and the Caloosahatchee River.
We are of the firm belief that Aubuchon Homes/Sterling Collection have the strongest team, and are the undisputed leaders in their field.
To put it simply, it has been one the best experiences of our lives.
We are also delighted to have had the opportunity to continue our association with all of the team, including Evalutions, during the BIA Parade of Homes - and we are very pleased and proud that our home won a number of awards..... which is really another accolade for your great team.
With Best Regards,
John & Anne Marie Adams
Thank you for your kind remarks. Your words and feelings mean a great deal to me and our team. I brought my wife Andrea to your home on Saturday and listened to many wonderful comments from people on the Parade of Homes tour. The clear consensus is that you have an amazing, beautiful home and we are proud to be your builder.
John and Marie Adams
To: Schmidt, Carl
We just received an email from Brian advising that our home had won an number of awards at the BIA Parade of Homes.
We are very pleased and proud - but as you are the Master Builder, that put it there with all the fine workmanship, you should get most of the credit.
Thanks again for a fantastic job.

Thank you very much! I too am very pleased and proud to be the builder of your beautiful home, but I am more pleased and proud to have awesome customers like you. One of my famous sayings to my customers is "if you're not happy I'm not happy" and I mean that from my heart.
So when I have a customer that is very pleased and proud it makes me very happy, and it makes this sometimes very stressful job very rewarding. We really appreciate you allowing us to show off your beautiful home, we have sold several in the last couple of months.2010 has started off on a good note we have had a lot of activity and multiple sales so I should be very busy.
Not only were you awesome customers to build for, you are now my good friends from Scotland. I look forward to seeing you on your next visit and I will talk with you soon.

Dear Mr. Aubuchon,
We wanted to take a moment and congratulate you and your team for a job well done. After hearing nightmares from too many people about their choice of contractors, we have concluded that we made the right choice with your Sterling Collection. From the time that we stepped foot into The Monarch model and were greeted by the most professional sales associate that we have encountered, Peggy Senna, to the final walk thru with Carl Schmidt, who we found to be a no-nonsense team leader throughout the entire project, our experience has been nothing less than a success. Being in the construction business ourselves and having to rely on photos and the words of the construction team some 1500 miles away, was something that we were not looking forward to. But your team proved it can be done hassle free.
Even during tough times in the Florida residential building market your team will succeed due to the quality and commitment that your team provides. Our new neighbors have raved over the professionalism that was seen throughout the project. That alone should keep your head high knowing that your team performs as others have failed.
Again we thank you and your team for our beautiful home in paradise and look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Why the McCloskey's Chose Aubuchon Over Competitor.
Can you believe it? Thank you for all your time and patience you showed to us for all these years. For us, it was well worth the wait. Our dream home is beautiful and we love it.
Thank you again for your tireless energy in making the process go smoothly and in rescuing us from the competition. Please feel free to drop in anytime. We love showing off our new home!
Thank you all for expertly managing your each individual role resulting in the thrilling process of building our home. Your tireless energy and effort made possible the building of our quality dream home. We know the building process can be a harrowing nightmare, but ours was a very smooth and wonderful experience. The team effort made the construction process a seamless tranistion from concept to final construction.
If anyone from the team has not seen the completed masterpiece, we invite you to do so. We are sure that you will be as proud to be a part of its construction as we are to be the owners.
Again, thank you for all your efforts in making our dream home a success.

Just a letter to say THANKS! to the entire Aubuchon team and all the contractors.
When we decided to build our home we had a lot of people tell us things like, "oh man you are in for a nightmare of an experience" or "the company we just built with was terrible". Since this was our first time building we were wondering if we were going to have the same comments by the end of the project.
Well just the opposite happened. From the first time we met Peggy we felt good about Aubuchon and the way they operated. Peggy did a great job of explaining the entire process and how it all would work. We chose to have the Evalutions folks do all the decorating and we can't tell you how many people come into our house and want one just like it.
I don't know the first thing about building a house but one thing I do know is that you all made it very easy for us to work with you. Our superintendent Mike has been overseeing the project from the beginning and has offered many suggestions on things that we may have missed. Also any issues that came up he took care of, no questions asked. I don't think we could have asked for a better superintendent.
Thanks for not just building our house, but building a HOME for us.
We will call you for the next one!

"Our existing home has been completely transformed into our dream home thanks to Team Aubuchon! The total experience from conception to completion was excellent! Jim Aubuchon and his outstanding team of subcontractors communicated with us and coordinated their efforts and scheduling in a very professional manner. My wife and I are very pleased to have chosen Aubuchon Homes for our remodel. We smile every day when we pull in our driveway!"

We are delighted to be the proud owners of a Sterling Collection home.
We were in the process of looking at homes for placement on our recently acquired gulf access property in SW Cape Coral. As we were driving through the area we noticed your announcement of a new home being built for one of your clients. The attention to detail and the professional look of your sign made an impression on us. We felt a company that pays that much attention to communication and show must likewise pay attention to the quality of home they build. We were right! As they say, the rest is history.
You can be proud of the quality home you build, your sales team, and all the others who represent your organization. Everyone was friendly, informative, courteous and had an eye on the customer. You have made us “Raving Fans”!
Well life is moving very fast for us as we have finally settled into our new home and life in SW Florida. I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how appreciative I am at the response and professionalism you and your organization showed... I see smiling faces on my daughter and wife. Every time I pull up to my house I know what paradise is all about!
It would take hours of writing to proclaim the fantastic building experience I am having with my Sterling Collection Home.
I can't say, "Everyone from the top to the bottom has been great to work with", because EVERYONE is at the top of my list.
When I speak to my sales person (Peggy), she's sharp, very knowledgeable, and gets quotes and questions answered right away for me. When I speak to the superintendents (Randy and Dave), they know exactly what’s going on with my home and treat it as if it's their home. The Subs are experienced and clean (not like other builders’ jobs sites I've been on).
The "value added" (to my home) by this premium home builder, The Sterling Collection, is comparable to none. Thank You to everyone with Team Aubuchon.
(A note from Don Stewart,
a retired employee and customer)
To my associates at Team Aubuchon:
Those who know me know I like to write long reports, letters and "mid-size" e-mails, but this one brings (mixed emotions). My association with Team Aubuchon was even more fulfilling that I had anticipated. I learned in many areas, construction, real estate, and as Jeff says, my love for Cape Coral - a special feeling for a special place. "Sell the lifestyle" (just paradise). I've got to admit, I have been proud to represent Team Aubuchon - my target company, when I applied just 4 years ago, my first contact was Jeannine - wow - she really got me hooked - I knew I was on target.
What an opportunity to work for the premier custom builder in Southwest Florida. Meeting clients at the likes of the Grand Mariner, and the Casa Del Anno II - nothing is better than that......Until the Sterling Collection was born. "I can get into this”, I said, and with the award winning Hallmark model...I just had to build one, too!!
Gary, Jeff, Allen, Carl - Thanks for your talented help during the 4 year gig....It's truly been fun.
Stay true to the mission. Continue to evolve, ahead of the curve. Always maintain the total professional organization – you have talented principals and leaders! Keep the creative marketing spark, super special events, incredible community involvement. This all adds up to the 1st class organization of Team Aubuchon.
I have established many friendships within the organization and with many clients that I have worked with. I'll even miss the 7:30 meetings!!!
Now on to my new life - lounge chair, straw hat, Aubuchon koozie…. then after 9 AM we'll go boating past the models just to check them out and say Hi!
Have a great Summer!

Realtor Dianne Fessler speaks about her client's experience.
Over the period of several months, my buyers made several short visits to SW Florida to view the area, the various communities, the homes available for sale, & also the gated communities in the various areas. We looked at numerous homes, and finally the buyers were narrowing it down to gated communities, and then finally gated communities where the golf membership was not mandatory, but available.
When arriving at Magnolia Landing, we found this community offered all the buyers’ desires but the homes were all the basic floor plans with no changes in design offered. I was very happy to discover Aubuchon Homes was building in the community as they are custom builders and my buyers just couldn't find the perfect floor plan for their needs.
Upon meeting with Miloff Aubuchon sales associate Randy Downey, he was very friendly and professional. He explained the product and met us at the model center. The buyers were very impressed with the floor plan, the design, and the quality...and happy they could make changes. Randy's knowledge of the changes that could be made to the design was very helpful.
Randy and the team at the Aubuchon Design center were a wonderful asset coordinating the design of the home, the choices of decorator options, upgrades, and color combinations.
Follow up on the building progress has been extraordinary with constant contact with the buyers: The Construction Coordinator/ Superintendent, Carl, is very diligent in meeting on site with the contractors at each stage of the building process, in scheduling & coordinating each contractor to keep the construction process moving along as it should, in checking on the home on a daily basis, and by informing the buyer weekly via email and pictures of the building progress.
I am very pleased to be working with Team Aubuchon and am looking forward to bringing other buyers to see the quality homes they build.
