Tips for choosing a home builder: we suggest you ask the following:

  1. How many homes has the builder constructed in the previous year? How much experience do they have building custom homes in Florida?
    DM Dean Inc. has built over 800 homes – most of these in Southwest Florida, including Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte!
  2. Has the builder had a judgement or lien against them? Have they ever had to litigate or arbitrate with a customer?
    DM Dean Inc. has been building homes since 1997 and we have never had a legal issue …  EVER!
  3. Are the home plans the builder is offering original designs? Is there a risk of copyright infringement for the plan? Are you willing to be a party to a copyright lawsuit?
    All floorplans that DM Dean, Inc uses are our own design, many of them copyrighted. All are tested and meet all codes. Many have been built multiple times. All can be customized to your specific needs.
  4. What do ALL of the other builder’s customers think about them? Any builder can hand out a list of a few customers to contact.
    DM Dean Inc. offers you a list of 50 customers and home locations. And we will give you the location to EVERY customer for which we have ever built here in Florida. Can any other builder offer that much confidence?
