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…

“Please allow me to put in writing a couple of takeaways (and there are more than a couple but these have stood out) regarding completion of our wonderful, new beach home.

I hope we’ve made it abundantly clear how much we appreciate everyone associated with your company. From Brent down, we’ve been so impressed with your entire staff. George Betz deserves a big shout-out. In the beginning, Tim was our go-to guy and he was and still is such a pleasure to work with. At some point, Tim mentioned he had a new procurement (?) position and George would be our best contact. George has been incredible. He’s so responsive and helpful. Debbie has thoroughly enjoyed working with him, and as they say, “a happy wife is a happy life”, which certainly makes Hollis’s life happier. I was in touch with him earlier this morning regarding a water pressure issue and he assured me he was on it. He sure has made a difference to us.

The other shout-out goes to Wicked Smart. Tim was so confident in their service that we were frankly never aware there might be other AV options. When he told me there would be a year of follow up service to address the intricacies of the sound system, numerous televisions, and the security cameras that alone sold me. I’m not at all technically astute and knew I would need that hand folding. My contact through the process has been Jonathan and I know he’s taken me on as a project. His support group has been very helpful. For the time being at least, I’m in command of the music and don’t much care about all the television bells and whistles. The younger ones can figure that out. I’ll be singing Wicked Smarts praises to anyone that will listen.

Thanks again for all you’ve done over the past couple of years to make certain we were only dealing with the best you had to offer. You can leave that Whitehead sign out front as long as you’d like. I know you’re proud of the finished product, but not as proud as we are to have a Whitehead home to brag about. Whitehead Construction is the best!

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.

In appreciation.”

“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.


…"when guests visit my home they ask enthusiastically, who built this beautiful house?
I respond with sincere pleasure that it was Whitehead Construction"…
