J and J Development performed admirably on our lake house.  Building a new house is always a leap of faith and from the beginning John Finch and his staff exuded a feeling of trustworthiness that never failed.  From the design meetings, to the daily site visits, to the rush at the end for the closing, John and Dagmar went above and beyond the call.  It is rare to build a custom home and still have the warm feelings for the builder that we had at the beginning of the project.  We actually can't wait to build our next house with John Finch and his staff.

Our custom home building experience with J&J Development was a pure joy from start to finish. J&J Development helped us select a perfect lot for our new home in Emerald Forest. The beautiful custom home they subsequently built to our exact specifications exceeded all our expectations. We were especially impressed with the high quality of work and the professionalism of the entire J&J Development staff. We highly recommend J&J Development for prospective custom home buyers.

Dear John and Joe,
On behalf of Letti, the children and myself, I want to express our sincere appreciation for building for us the most beautiful home we could ever have. We knew going into the construction process that it could be difficult. You made the building process so easy by answering our questions and relieving us of our concerns along the way. And when the work was done, you were right, everything came out great.

Our decision to use J & J was based on our confidence in your honesty and integrity; and you proved us right. I also want to commend the quality work of all your subcontractors. Whenever we had questions, needs, or changes, they were all very friendly and helpful.

Thank you again for your hard work and a quality job. Whenever I hear of someone wanting to build a home, I recommend J& J and only J & J. By the way, we cannot forget Schotsie, a.k.a. Dagmar, she’s terrific. Keep up the good work.

Sincerely,
Roger Bresnahan & Family

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
My wife and I recently completed building a home with J&J Custom Homes, 19310 Stone Oak Oak Parkway, Suite 100, San Antonio, TX 78258. After being transferred by Lockheed Martin to San Antonio from New Orleans in the fall of 2000, we began looking at subdivisions and custom builders. We quickly became impressed with the quality of workmanship of J&J homes … both older homes up for resale and newly built models. We also talked to owners of J&J Homes who all reported very positive experiences with the company during build and/or during warranty work after purchase of models. J&J support clearly did not end with the closing date.

Our initial discussions with John Finch and Joe Zyskind were pleasant, informative and without pressure. We looked at areas throughout NE San Antonio where we might build the home we envisioned. After considerable research, we elected to wait for the opening of a new portion of Emerald Forest. Joe & John, assisted by John Carlson and Tim Sheehan, helped us select the perfect lot. As we worked the design with their highly-skilled architect, Gustavo Arredondo, and progressed through contract finalization, we found everyone very cooperative in trying to accommodate our thoughts with the realities of the terrain, architecture and fiscal limitations. It was an excellent experience.

Once we completed the contract and broke ground in March 2002 through completion and closing in November, we experienced regular and open dialogue with both John Finch and his on-site supervisor, Mick McKinley. We also found J&J’s subcontractor leads to be extremely well qualified, professional and conscientious. Whenever there were questions or issues, John or Mick would quickly respond and ensure resolutions.

Many of our friends relate building a new home as one of the true stresses on a marriage. My wife and I found that, thanks to the personalized attention of John Finch and the rest of the J&J organization, we completed the process still speaking to each other. We also still like and are friends with our builders, J&J Custom Homes. We would highly recommend them to anyone seeking a top quality custom home.

Dear J&J,
This letter is to let you know how pleased we are with our custom J&J home. It has been one year since we moved into Emerald Forest and each day we still remark how much we LOVE our new home. The design is superb and the quality is outstanding. We shopped many builders and many homes when we decided to retire in San Antonio, but we were drawn to J&J Custom Homes in Emerald Forest. We found nothing that compared with the courtesy of the sales staff and the willingness of the builder to meet our every need. Any small problem we have experienced since moving in has been taken care of promptly and completely. We are so pleased that presently we are working with the sales associates, John Carlson and Tim Sheehan to find my brother a new J&J home too! Thank you so much for making our moving experience a great one.

Sincerely,
Rutherford & Verna Hayes

To Whom It May Concern:
Peggy and I have lived in a new J&J home for the past four years. We are pleased with the house’s design, comfort and overall livability. J&J has provided excellent service when necessary, even well after warranty expiration.
We highly recommend J&J as a builder.

Sincerely yours,
Eugene M. Tupacz
