What started as a wishful prayer years ago has ended in a dream come true.
Without a doubt, building a custom house can be a daunting and challenging undertaking made all the more complicated from 120 miles away. Many friends and family members warned us that we were embarking upon one of the most miserable experiences anyone could endure. They were wrong. With Hawthorne-Davis, this process far exceeded our hopes and expectations, and against all odds – including the most snowfall Cape May County has ever witnessed – the team from Hawthorne-Davis worked tirelessly to deliver our house on-time and on-budget.
From the first shovel of dirt to the last touch of paint, the entire staff treated our family and our home with care and respect. They went out of their way to keep an attentive eye on every detail and to help us make informed decisions that we would be happy with for years to come. Almost every phone or email message was returned by a member of the Hawthorne-Davis team the very same day it was received. Throughout the entire process, we had complete confidence in both their integrity and their expertise – a rare find in this business.
Whenever we visited the site, Ray and George patiently spent whatever time we needed to understand the progress, stay ahead of next steps and be fully included even though we were so remote. They made sure the construction area was safe for our small children and even let them be a part of the process by hammering in a few well-placed, pre-drilled nails – a memory our kids will always treasure.
As corny as it sounds, our home was built with love and it shows. Every time we walk in the door, we are amazed at the quality, craftsmanship and comfort our house offers. It is a relaxing oasis in our otherwise crazy and chaotic lives. We can’t believe we are so blessed to call it ours and are proud and thankful that Hawthorne-Davis was our partner in creating it. In our eyes, Ray and George are dream makers. They genuinely understood that they were building a home that will remain a member of our family throughout future generations.
It is without hesitation or reservation that we recommend Hawthorne-Davis to anyone considering a custom home at the Jersey shore.
