How We Earned our Reputation as the Best Home Builder in Florida

Reputation counts when it comes to custom home building, and we take great pride in ours. Over the past 35 years at Divco Custom Homes, we’ve established ourselves as Southwest Florida’s premier luxury custom home builder. How did we do this, you may ask? Here’s how.

It started with establishing satisfaction as job #1.

In order to build our reputation, we understood it meant we had to build a good relationship with our clients. If we wanted to build the best custom homes in Florida, we first had to have the best team in Florida. Our owner, Stephen Kauffman, made sure to establish a team of professionals with decades of experience and a shared dedication to the customer. Our team collectively represents over 90 years of experience and after 35 years in business, thousands of families have entrusted us with the building of their custom homes, a responsibility we do not take lightly.

We developed the mantra that quality custom home building begins with quality processes.

Whether you’re building your home on a golf course, waterfront property or on a country estate, Divco Custom Homes established early on a nine-step process that will make your dream custom home become a reality. Each homebuilding story is unique, but our building process remains consistent across all our homes ensuring a delivery that meets your expectations and our standards. We promise to provide clear direction and open, two-way communication from our first contact to after your home is completed. Our process is as follows:

  1. Choose your homesite
  2. Set your expectations
  3. Establish the finishes
  4. Conceptual designs/working drawings are drafted
  5. The construction agreement is drafted and signed
  6. Finishes are selected with our in-house designer
  7. You watch your home become a reality
  8. Close communication with field management is facilitated throughout this process
  9. You make your grand entrance

We build in the most prestigious communities.

In order for our top-quality homes to reflect the top-quality lives of the people we build them for, we began to building our homes in the most prestigious communities throughout Southwest Florida and continue to do so today. We’re proud to have built homes in over 60 communities throughout Southwest Florida in Naples, Marco Island, Bonita Springs and Fort Myers.

We built professional relationships in the community and were recognized by our peers.

Through our quality homebuilding processes, we established ourselves as a prestigious homebuilder with our clients. Because our specialty is luxury home building in Southwest Florida, we wanted to ensure we were contributing members of the community as well. In addition to this, we found other organizations whose values aligned with ours in regard to home building practices such as the 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty and the National Association of Home Builders. Because we build in Collier and Lee counties, we also are members with the Collier County Building Industry (CBIA) and the Lee County Builders Industry Association (BIA). These various associations host award ceremonies every year, and Divco Custom Homes is extremely fortunate to have been recognized for our quality homes and processes on the following:

  • 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty – Diamond and Elite Award Winner – Presented to only eight builders in the United States
  • CBIA – Received numerous Sand Dollar Awards for our custom design achievements
  • BIA – Received several of their prestigious Pinnacle Awards

Our reputation is one we’re very proud of, one we will work diligently to uphold in our next 35 years of business. If you’re interested in seeing for yourself how our team will work tirelessly to make your dream custom home come to life and how our reputation speaks for itself, please contact us today.
