"There are no words sufficient to express my heartfelt gratitude to you and your team for seeing me through the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with---the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Not only was my house unhabitable, but also the experience was physically, mentally, and emotionally draining. However, with your calm demeanor and expertise I was assured my home would be restored to pre-hurricane condition.

It was a pleasure to meet and work with Tara. She guided me through the selection of appliances, countertops, tile, and sink, pointing out features I had not even thought about. Tara always responded to a text or email in a timely manner. I'm sure you know what a gem she is!

I commend you and your workers for the thoroughness and attention to detail as repairs were made. I hesitate to start naming names because I do not want to overlook anyone who had a part of the restoration. I bet Chucky never imagined he'd one day provide a shoulder for his second grade teacher to cry on when I stopped by the house after a session with an insurance representative!

Please know I will sing the praises of Ellis Construction Company any time mention is made of construction contractors and/or Hurricane Matthew!

"...You helped us refine and perfect our plans prior to the bidding process. The only mistake Linda and I made was having two other builders bid...
They both said they couldn't come close to our stiplulated budget or satisfy our tight completion schedule. You said you could, and you did -- under budget and two weeks early.
Our dream house is magnificant...
We have and will continue to tell everyone we meet who is considering a custom home -- that they must call Ellis Construction."

"...Where to start? We want to thank you both very much for all your effort and time in helping us...build our new home. We are truly grateful for all that you both have done for us. Our home is beautiful and we love it and are so happy with everything... We appreciate your understanding our feelings and concerns... It was indeed a pleasure to work with both of you and I am not happy it is over because I want to have a reason to see and talk to you both regularly....we sincerely appreciate everything you did to make this dream possible..."

"Choosing a contractor for our house in Hilton Head, SC was a very critical decision. It involved a very challenging design; a difficult oceanfront site; a tight (and critical) deadline; and during the time of construction, my wife and I would be in Maine.

We chose Marc and Ellis Construction after interviewing several builders, visiting many constructions sites, and talking to Bankers and Real Estate professionals. It was obvious that all had a great deal of respect for Marc and cited his honesty, reliability, knowledge and interviewing several builders, visiting many constructions sites, and talking to Bankers and Real Estate professionals. It was obvious that all had a great deal of respect for Marc and cited his honesty, reliability, knowledge and professionalism. After working with Marc on the house, I can add that he is all that and more. He was always a pleasure to work with and made a difficult project a whole lot easier.

During the project Marc and Tara were always available to answer questions and keep us up-to-date on all aspects of the process. If they saw ways to improve the final result, they would make creative suggestions and discuss ideas. When problems would arise, they would explain the problem clearly, and suggest solutions. When we were in Maine we could count on Marc and Tara to make sure we stayed on schedule (and budget).

The house was completed on schedule, which is an amazing accomplishment considering some of the roadblocks that new building codes presented to us. And the finished home is a credit to Marc and his skills. It is one of the best built homes on the beach and really showcases what can be accomplished when you have a great working relationship between the owners and the contractor.

Since the house was completed, Marc has followed up with making sure any minor problems that came up were solved quickly. Having worked with other builders on other projects we know how rare this type of follow up is. He assumed responsibility when he accepted the job, and remains just as responsible today, three years since occupancy.

I would recommend Ellis Construction to anyone for any project. Marc's honesty is refreshing, and he is truly a joy to work with. The proof is in the fact that we later contracted Marc to work on a very large remodeling project, and a second oceanfront home that we were just as satisfied with!"

"We are writing to express how very happy we are with our lovely new home...
We also recognize and value how you consistently gave us your time. You spent an unbelievable amount of time with us and you never made us feel that we were bothering you, no matter how small the issue. Most importantly we were particularly impressed with and grateful for you effort to understand us and know what was important to us and would recommend Ellis Construction to anyone who is about to build their own dream home."

"...We consider ourselves very fortunate to have had our home built by Marc Ellis. Being far away and with limited resources that would allow us to visit infrequently, we needed a builder that we could trust. In addition, we needed someone who could do quality work at a reasonable price.
We found this person in Marc Ellis. We entrusted him to build our dream house while staying within a restricted budget. Somehow Marc did this, and the finished product is everything that we could have hoped for.

We had to rely on Marc to problem solve and to make good decisions while building a quality home. His expertise, flexibility and obvious desire to produce a top quality product made our experience a rewarding one. He was willing to go out of his way to accommodate us and relieve our worries. Even after we moved in, he came over at 11:30 at night to solve a problem that was not even his responsibility.

...He enabled us to build the house of our dreams."
