The Retreat

June 2007

Dear Alan,

It has been almost four years since the completion of our wonderful gulf front home and I wanted to take a moment to tell you how happy Ed and I are with each and every detail. As an Interior Designer myself and Ed with a career in real estate, we were knowledgeable and very involved clients. You and your staff handled our endless meetings with professionalism and patience.

Building a house on the dunes comes with its own set of engineering complexities. Our project was especially challenging because of the massive amount of steel and concrete. You accepted the task with confidence and skill with an end result of beauty and structural integrity.

Besides hearing of the fine craftsmanship of Ficarra Builders from past clients, we kept hearing the words “honest and trustworthy” time and time again. Having worked with many builders in our respective fields, Ed and I really value quality and honesty. These values are often very hard to find but we found both with you and your firm.

We always felt you could solve any unforeseen problem and that confidence allowed us to experience, with pleasure and excitement, the building of our custom home. We also appreciate the fact that you are as accessible today as you were during construction.

Thank you Alan, for everything. You have our highest recommendation.

Anne and Ed Erbesfield
