For years, my wife and I have talked about what our home lacked in living space. At times, we laughed about remodeling, after raising two children and many dogs in our 1970 Florida ranch house of 1700 square feet. I must admit, I was not at all anxious for change. This was our home for 38 years. At our first meetings with you, we were told we could probably have a new house for what it would cost to accomplish what we were asking for. You will remember we responded, “We have memories in this home.”
From that point on, we feel we developed a special working relationship with you at Orange Blossom Developers. The purpose of this letter is to thank you for what you accomplished. From the meetings to discuss the very major reconfiguration of our home to the daily contacts during construction, you were courteous, efficient and committed. Of no less importance, your choice of subcontractors was indicative of your professionalism as a builder. They all were on time, a pleasure to deal with, and always took the time to make sure we were satisfied.
Our new home is perfectly beautiful and also user friendly. From our new custom kitchen to my “dog den”, your efforts exceeded our expectations. We now have a home that is what we have dreamed about, and also looks like it belongs on our waterfront property in our neighborhood. It does not look “added on to”, but as if it was originally built as it is now. This home has the true native Florida home look, which we wanted. And Todd, as important as your job was to us, the help Brooke was to Sandra on the many selections of items, i.e. light fixtures, flooring, paint colors, etc., was absolutely outstanding. She is an intricate part of the success of this undertaking.
In closing, Sandra and I want to thank you all at Orange Blossom. Everyone was committed to doing an outstanding job, meeting commitments as to cost, construction schedule, occupancy date, and quality of work. You may feel free to refer any prospective clients to us for our comments. Again, thank you so very much for leading us through this major project so successfully.

Dear Orange Blossom Developers,
I am writing to express our gratitude and thanks for the superb job on the construction of our house at 302 Morningside Drive. We had always heard building a house was the “most frustrating and aggravating thing you could do”. That couldn’t be further than the truth. It was truly a pleasure to work with you and ALL of your subcontractors. The construction on our custom waterfront house was the highest quality we could ask for. Your team was always available for questions and assistance. Todd Spenlau was so helpful and accessible throughout the entire building and final inspection process. His subcontractors respect him and were very focused on the quality of their work. I believe the one-on-one attitude of Orange Blossom as well as the integrity all the entire team are the things that make them so unique in the home-building business.
I would highly recommend Orange Blossom to anyone considering building a home and they will definitely be my first call if I every build another home. Thank you so much for making this time such an enjoyable process.

Dana and I want to thank you and your company for a wonderful home building experience.
We are very pleased with the quality of service your company provided and we sincerely appreciate your responsiveness and the way you conduct business. You always seemed to err on the side of”over communicating”, and we can’t thank you enough for that. We were probably most impressed with the apparent “seamless” communication between you and your subcontractors. If we didn’t know better, we would have assumed they only work for you.
We will gladly recommend your company to others because of our satisfaction with your service. It’s truly a pleasure to work with people who know the meaning of efficiency and customer service.
Todd and Dana McWhirter
Dear Chuck and Todd,
Now that our new home is completed, my wife and I would like to take this opportunity to say “thank you” to Orange Blossom and yourselves personally. It’s nice to work with a company that caters to your personal needs and requests.
Building a custom home from the design stage through completion is not an easy task. Todd was extremely helpful in meeting us on several occasions to discuss questions we had, assisting us in making decisions and possible design changes. All construction was done in a timely and most professional manner.
We would highly recommend a quality builder such as Orange Blossom, to anyone desiring to build a new home or renovate an existing one.

Dear Todd and Crew,
Just a quick note to thank Orange Blossom for making our major remodel as painless as possible and for having the end result turn out so nicely. To make a long story short we had found a nice sized house on a big lot that was in an area we wanted to live. Unfortunately the house was an abandoned foreclosure that was structurally sound but cosmetically a basket case on the inside. Orange Blossom came in, revised some load bearing walls to open up the view to the backyard, replaced a questionable wood addition with a solid block structure and brought the rest of the house up to snuff both structurally and visually. We now have a beautiful house loaded with cherry cabinets, stacked stone fireplaces, granite countertops and a suitable master bathroom with a large marble shower (my favorite part!). I would strongly recommend Orange Blossom to someone who is looking for a firm that can deliver quality work, has a stable of skilled subcontractors, and a GC who takes the time to listen to what the homeowner wants. Thank you again.
