Onshore Construction & Development takes on the challenge of constructing a one-of-a-kind estate home in Jupiter, Fla.

By Janice Hoppe-Spiers, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Media 

Onshore Construction & Development has built a strong reputation over the past 25 years for owner satisfaction. “When they are done and the owners take over and move in, many builders wash their hands and move on,” COO Evan Anderson says. “We don’t ever move on and are always there whenever an owner needs us. They can call the owner and I on our cell phones if they need anything and that’s the culture we’ve had for years.”

When JKD Builder constructs a home for a client, it also builds a new friendship. “They are part of our JKD family,” co-owner Sue Durio declares. “That’s fairly unusual in this business.” In fact, JKD Builder is so friendly with its past customers that it often gives tours of its homes to new clients. “They’re a walking reference for us,” Durio says. “I never have to worry about what they would say, because they’re very satisfied.”

Insight Homes takes pride in building better, greener homes for clients.

By Alan Dorich, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Media 

Some homebuilders aim to build projects as inexpensively as they can, but Insight Homes takes the opposite approach. “When you speak to many homebuilders, their goal is how low can they get their costs to build a house,” President Robert Elliott says. This approach can help them compete, but “our culture’s completely different,” he says, explaining that Insight Homes focuses on how it can build a better home for educated consumers despite the cost. “That’s our tagline: ‘It’s just a better house.’”
