Williamsburg custom home builder Michael C. Brown Custom Builder feels very fortunate to enjoy and benefit from close and favorable relationships with their past clients.

“The close relationships we’ve forged with our clients through the construction process, and then maintained for many years after completion, are the most gratifying aspect of our business.” – Mike Brown

“It goes without asking that I will endorse your company and your skills. As I have done in the past, I will be happy to talk with any prospective clients at any time. Anyone thinking of contracting you to build their home should be aware of the following:

Michael Brown Custom Builder, LLC has an outstanding reputation as one of the premier builders in this area. His houses are of highest quality both in construction and design. When a Mike Brown house hits the resale market it demands top dollar and sells quickly.

You take a hands-on approach with your projects and that is important to me. You both provide active supervision – this is not the norm for many contractors. Craig listened to our desires during the planning phase and was very helpful in giving us what we wanted within our budget. He is a professional and extremely talented!”
John and Marj, Governor’s Land

“This was our first time with the homebuilding experience. It was a reluctant path for us after hearing horror stories from friends and acquaintances. I’m happy to say that our experience was a pleasant one thanks to Mike and Craig’s expertise. We appreciated careful explanations, detailed information with regard to selections and guidance related to modifications. They worked on our behalf in straightening out supplier difficulties.”
Rick and Lane, Ford’s Colony

“We are delighted with the quality construction and beauty of our home. Our builders worked with us to ensure our vision for design became a reality. The results were fabulous! We are proud of our home and give you our highest recommendation for anyone wanting to build a quality home.”
Don and Cathy, Governor’s Land

“You and your team built a fine home for us at the Governor’s Land. Prior to that we moved seven times and built four homes. You provided the most problem free, and surprise free experience we’ve had. You exceeded all our expectations. Conversations with many friends here in the community who used other builders clearly lead me to conclude your team is ‘best in class’ “…

“Our house exudes quality and appearance areas like fit and finish, craftsmanship, and design subtleties, as well as in practical ways like lower utility bills and, after five years of occupancy, we’ve had essentially no maintenance costs. The discipline an emphasis you place on the performance and continuity of subcontractors is one reason we believe your work stands head and shoulders above the other alternatives in this geographic region, and from our experience makes you one of the best anywhere.”
Robert and Jane, Governor’s Land

“Michael Brown Custom Builder, LLC were very familiar with the particulars of building within our development. Not just the requirements of governor’s land in terms of the aesthetic qualities, but also the existing soil conditions and the requirements those placed on foundation design.”
Dale and Jo Ray, Governor’s Land

“It is indeed great pleasure for us to recommend Michael Brown Custom Builder, LLC as your builder. Michael and his crew made our life a lot easier during the construction of our home. If we have to say one thing about his organization, it is the quality of the workmanship provided to his client. The finish they provide for walls, corners, painting, etc. is one of the highest quality. It is about five years since we moved into our home and we have not come across any flaws which we should repair. We are very impressed with the quality of workmanship!”
Vijay and Roopa, Governor’s Land

“Michael designed and built the perfect home for us. We began design and construction for eight months while we lived in Mexico and moved here during the final finishing phase. We completely had faith in not overseeing the total project. We are very pleased with the end product and would use Craig and Michael again should the need arise.”
Tom and Barbara, Governor’s Land

“We appreciated the time that Mike and Craig spent with us developing the plans for our new home. Their patience and insight were very helpful. And their desire to please us was always evident.”
Dot and Gil, Governor’s Land

“The team of Michael C. Brown Custom Home Builder is truly professional. Their attention to detail and commitment to build the finest custom home is apparent in every stage of the process.  Without reservation, we would recommend Michael C. Brown Home Builder for anyone looking to build a custom home.”
Todd and Kathy, Ford’s Colony

“We found working with Craig on the design and construction of our house to be a very easy process that resulted in a well designed and very well constructed home.  The materials used were first rate and we were very pleased with all of the subcontractors.  We have had very few problems in the seven years since construction was complete.  If there was a problem it was fixed immediately at no cost.  Our house is very comfortable and very energy efficient thanks to the construction methodology and the use of newer technologies such as the instant-on hot water system and the poured concrete foundation system.  If we were to build again we would definitely use Michael C. Brown builders again.
John and Pat, Governor’s Land

“Kimi and I would sincerely like to thank you and your team for the total project over the last several years.  You have delivered, as promised, plus some.  We chose Michael Brown Builders because of your reputation and our own positive “vibes” during the selection process.  You have distinguished yourselves as committed to quality and fairness, and there’s no better winning ticket than that.  While the formal effort closes, we look forward to all of your friendships going forward.
Nick and Kimi – Governor’s Land
