New Homes Tampa


To Whom It May Concern:

In late 1989, Adam Smith Enterprises, Inc. opened its first model center at Trinity, showcasing the work of four area builders who got in on the ground floor of our 20-year development plan. Today, as we approach the build out of our 3,800 acre community a little ahead of schedule, one builder who will finish up with us was also there at the very start - Samuelsen Builders, Inc.

It is very easy for me to designate Samuelsen Builders as Trinity's biggest success story. The homes they build are exceptional in their quality and workmanship. They have a very loyal and dedicated group of subcontractors that have worked with them for years. They are totally reliable, and are unsurpassed in terms of customer satisfaction. We have always done post move-in interviews with our residents, and I can only recall two minor complaints ever coming forth from over 500 Samuelsen customers.

Samuelsen Builders' combine professionalism, with all the personal touch's of a family builder. We have enjoyed our working relationship with the Samuelsen's and their staff over the years, and would certainly anticipate them to be an asset in your community. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

Dear Rick and the Samuelsen Team,

I am writing this letter to let you know how happy I am with the home that you built for me in Champions' Club. I have had many people comment on how beautiful the house is. In fact, the entire experience with Samuelsen Builders exceeded my expectations, from the professionalism and courtesy of your staff, to the exceptionally high standards you apply throughout the building process. As a realtor, I have sold over a dozen homes with different builders in Champions' Club. I can say without a doubt that you are the finest builder I have worked with. Moreover, I feel that you offer the greatest value by far in terms of the quality of the materials you use, and the exceptional work of your sub-contractors.
I will certainly choose Samuelsen Builders should I have another home built in the future, and I look forward to bringing many customers to build their homes with you. Thank you for building such a fine home for me, and for making it a pleasure during the whole process.

To whom it may concern

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please accept this letter of recommendation for Samuelsen Builders on behalf of myself and SunTrust Mortgage, Inc. Our relationship with Samuelsen has spanned over 12 years in Pasco County, and $30,000,000 in construction loans.

I personally meet face to face with our customers after they have moved into their new home, and can say without hesitation their comments are without exception 100% fully satisfied. This is remarkable, especially in light of today's stringent expectations from our consumers.

Samuelsen Builders is a "hands on” family operation, and contributes to this satisfaction rating.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding our relationship with Rich, Thelma, Rick. and Mike.



To whom it may concern:

It is my great pleasure to submit a letter of recommendation for Samuelsen Builders, Inc. I was first introduced to Samuelsen Builders when I contacted Patti Reading, the listing realtor for a beautiful piece of property in Odessa.

As I began from my original design concept to the extraordinarily beautiful finished product Samuelsen built, each step in the process was expertly managed and the quality of workmanship unsurpassed. From the smallest details of the cabinetry, crown molding and staircase to the most basic structural detail, the house was meticulously crafted.

Building a custom home, in my opinion, is a huge undertaking with problems inherent in its custom nature. However, whenever an issue arose, Mike Ryan consistently dealt with the situation and became personally responsible for its resolution. There was never a question from the perspective of the home buyer as to the integrity or quality of that resolution. There were times when resolution of a problem meant expense to the builder, and it was in these situations that uniqueness of the Samuelsen family's genuine and unwavering commitment to do right thing and build a home of highest quality was extraordinarily clear.

It does not seem possible to spend any time with Mike, Patti or Rick and not be impressed by their sincerity and dedication of purpose. Their strong desire to build a house of distinction, coupled with their genuine concern for the individual gives one a clear sense of confidence that Samuelsen Builders is unquestionably acting in one's best interest.

I have built three custom homes prior to this one and have dealt with many builders and contractors. I can say unequivocally that Samuelsen is the most exemplary, ethical and sincere group of individuals with which I have ever been associated. They have my highest recommendation as an exemplary builder of homes, and a company of integrity, and my enduring and heartfelt gratitude for their unceasing dedication to the homes they build and the people who will live in them.


To whom it may Concern:

I am writing on behalf of Samuelsen Builders, a company that we have built a strong working relationship, for more than 10 years.

This is a family oriented business with outstanding customer satisfaction. Samuelsen builders is An A+ builder with Bank of America, this designation puts Samuelsen Builders in The top 1% of all builders in the United States and one of 4 builders in Florida. Bank of America only gives this A- rating to the most financially stable builders in the United States

I am very proud to do business with a company that still puts the customer's best interest at heart, and I personally recommend Samuelsen Builders to my customers.

Dear Mike,

Samuelsen Builders are not just a "builder". You are a family with craftsmanship, integrity and honesty. You are a family that their "word is your bond" which is rare in this day and age.

Having previously built a home with a "mass builder" I can speak of the difficulties we encountered. Plumbing not placed according to plans, walls not located as directed, etc... so when it came time for us to build, we were extremely cautious. Having built this home in Grey Hawk with your family, I can truly say I would build again, with your family no one else. We never had to worry, when "things came up" you called us and informed us as to the status and what the "next steps" were. I can truly say it was a pleasure.
