At Whitehead Construction, we are very proud of the relationships we have established with our clients over the years. These relationships are built on a foundation of trust and satisfaction. Our customers include CEO’s and retired presidents of major corporations such as Honeywell, Exxon, Purina, Levi Straus, Nestle, Rubbermaid, Investco, L.L. Bean, Publix, and an ex-governor of FL. Below are testimonies of what some of our valued customers have to say about their Whitehead Construction experience…
“Dear Team, As I type this, I am awaiting David’s arrival home to see the masterpiece that all of you helped create. You also miraculously got the CO completed by the date that I so hoped would happen. David left from our previous home and returns home this evening to our new home. I only know a small portion of what it took to pull off getting the CO done in time but I can assure you that I know it was a herculean effort with tons of roadblocks.
The house is extraordinary. There are so many spectacular elements far too great to list in this email but, my goodness, they certainly all came together to create such a beautiful home. Executing upon that vision and talent is critical and we are so thankful for WCI. What an amazing experience. You are true professionals in every sense of the word and we are beyond fortunate that you accepted us as your clients. We have learned over the years that one doesn’t interview Brent to decide if you want to have him build your home…rather Brent interviews you to decide if he wants to build your home. The WCI team is unparalleled and absolutely the best in the business. It all starts with Brent and we thank you for your passion for what you do and how you kept that passion throughout the entire process.
As part of the building process, how blessed are we that Neil was our Project Manager? Wow. His commitment and dedication and genuine care for the construction process was evident in every meeting, every interaction. He always knew he was building “our home” and went above and beyond to make it magnificent. He also recognized how important it was to us to get the CO in the time frame that we outlined. I’m still awestruck that it happened! Neil is fiercely talented and I will remain immensely grateful for all that he did for us to make our home a reality.
Building this home was hard, hard work and I know there were many nights that you went home exhausted. But the professionalism and team effort that went into completing this home is unique. The team worked together so well. How often does that happen?!? I believe it is very rare. The chemistry that this team shared is special and hard to duplicate. I will always cherish the experience.
Somehow the words “thank you” don’t seem enough, but thank you from the very bottom of our hearts. Thank you for creating a masterpiece for us to enjoy together for the rest of our lives.
With our deepest gratitude, respect and appreciation.”

If someone tells you that the best is yet to come, believe them. It has been a year since I moved into my Whitehead-Built home on Bimini Bay, and it is the best house, including the Florida Governor’s Mansion, that I have ever lived in. I attribute the goodwill of my neighbors to the diplomacy of your excellent staff during construction. I am grateful for their sensitivity which has resulted in on-going friendly associations with those who live here at the end of 75th Street.
So, a great big BRAVO – WELL DONE – I LIKE IT from me to you.
If it is possible to have a better built home built by a better group of guys, I don’t believe it. You have a remarkable company and the people with whom I have dealt reflect perfectly as to who you are.
Neil and Larry have been on Debbie and my side since the day this job started. An incredible group of subs who greatly respect you and the Company.
Every suggestion you guys made was in our interest. I cannot say enough good things about you guys and feel blessed to have had you build our home.
“Thanks to the Whitehead team for a job well done! We have been using our beautiful home in Longboat Key since March and as every day passes, we realize the quality craftsmanship that your company has provided. Sean has been great to work with and kept us informed via phone, email, and photos on the progress of the construction. He has also been quick with any miscellaneous follow-up work that we have needed as the kinks have been worked out of the home. We would not hesitate to use Whitehead Construction to build another home in the future and would give a Whitehead recommendation to anybody who is considering building a home in the area. Thanks also for referring us to Holly Logan of HV Design who was a huge bonus.
We recently retired from New England and moved to Longboat Key. Being new to the area we decided to hire Whitehead Construction to build our new home. They came highly recommended based on their knowledge of construction, local laws and regulations and quality and efficiency of their work. They exceeded our expectations on all fronts. Having been involved with many construction projects in the past, this proved to be the most pleasant and productive experience. Their staff is easy to work with, reliable and understands the stress of building a new home. Most importantly, the end result came out beautiful!! We constantly receive compliments from neighbors and passerbys! You won’t find a more trustworthy and knowledgeable team anywhere!
It is with great pleasure I am able to recognize Brent and his entire team for their outstanding project management and commercial construction expertise. I can recall when I first met Brent in 1996 and asked him to help me build 10 beach-front condos (and later adding 2 more). He patiently explained his specialty was building custom homes.
However, after two or three meetings he quickly assessed my limitations (no prior development experience) and agreed to be my General Contractor for the Marbella Condominium project. This project has been recognized as one of the best developments on AMI, with a European like feel. The earth tones of the building have been widely copied in other projects on the Island.I next turned to Brent with a vision to build sixty condos and town houses on a track of land reaching from the ICW to the Gulf of Mexico. Once again, Brent agreed to be my General Contractor lending his design and engineering skills. He was like my silent partner, guiding me through the City and State Planning authorities. I could not ask for a better construction team than those at Whitehead Construction. They responded quickly to the planning approvals and were quick to organize all the activities necessary to get the project started. There were seven buildings in total, with the final three buildings completed early and under budget!
Brent remains a good friend who I have often called upon for advice; he has always been there to offer his consol. I can’t recall any business relationship that I have had where I have had the honor and pleasure to work with a professional like Brent. We are truly blessed to have him as a member of our community.
