Just want to express our thanks and appreciation for the excellent job done by Tom Dutton, LifeStyle Homes should be very proud to have him on the team.
I also wanted to reach out to Jay Hopay as well, he did an great job guiding us through the design phase and putting up with my constant emails requesting status on the building permit.
Thank you LifeStyle Homes.”

“We’ve been working with LifeStyle for over two years now, from just the pipe dream of building our new custom home, through the entire process. We have felt so at ease with the service, process and people and have really felt like they all have our best interest in mind. It’s a big, HUGE, investment and we’ve been delighted to know that we aren’t just some project on a board, but a family!
Shannon, Tom, Jennifer, Russ, really everyone has been exceptionally great to work with and have helped us through each of the bumps in the road. They’ve been responsive, attentive and honest with us, which is all the more we can ask for.
We looked at other home builders – for cost, quality and service – and we kept coming back to LifeStyle. They offer a great home, wonderful selections, extra amenities, but most importantly, the service that we didn’t find anywhere else.
Building a home, especially a custom home from a very lengthy “wish list” is daunting, frustrating, confusing, expensive, and overwhelming at times. That’s the reality of it, but I felt that the team at LifeStyle have been supportive and patient, honest, helpful and a great guide to this process. We are excited to continue our journey with them, through to completion.”
-Rebecca Menard (reviewed on Houzz)
“Working with each and every one of the LifeStyle team members was a true joy, especially Dan Coe, our site foreman. This was our third custom home build and by far the best experience. My questions were always readily answered, and I felt a true partnership in the entire process. Dan was always gracious when I needed clarification on a point, and receptive when I found errors that needed correction. We were a team working together to reach a specific goal, that being the successful completion of our home. We’ve since moved into our new home and have discovered a few minor problems, all of which have been or are being taken care of by Dan and your contractors.”
All through the hurricane we felt as safe as could be – thanks to the quality of home you built us. The winds did roar but our home stood firm. Thank you for the designing and building of our safe harbor during the storm.”
-Seth and Cathy Holman
“We love the house. It was built so fast. Tom (LifeStyle superintendent) was great to work with! We were able to design it to our exact taste thanks to Jennifer (LifeStyle interior designer), and it is everything we could have ever looked for in a house! We will definitely contact LifeStyle Homes if we were ever looking to build again!”
– Jenna Schwibner
“Our building experience has been wonderful! The attention to detail from everyone at LifeStyle throughout the entire process has been exceptional! Working with Jennifer (LifeStyle’s interior designer) in the design center early in the process was very helpful. Our superintendent, Tom, has been outstanding and a pleasure to work with. We have a beautiful, quality home that we are very excited about. We couldn’t be more pleased!”
I wanted to take this opportunity to reach out to you regarding David Daniels. My husband and I are looking to build our 4th home and I must say that David is by far the best home specialist we have encountered over the years. He is extremely knowledgeable, attentive, patient, authentic, professional and dedicated. I have changed floor plans and ideas at least 6 times, however David always makes me feel like it is not a big deal and is accommodating. David provides a wealth of knowledge regarding the LifeStyle product/options without speaking negatively about the competitors (very hard to do). In addition, he is very responsive to my never-ending emails (even on the days he is not scheduled to work). To me, that is pure dedication and LifeStyle is lucky to have him as a member of the team.
We are in the final step of the process. Aside from the quality and price point of the home we hope to build with LifeStyle, I feel that if David is a reflection of the overall team we will be in a good place. I have a very busy and hectic job, so the last thing I need is added stress over the next year of the building process (realizing that there is no such thing as perfection).
Again, I just wanted to share positive feedback. I am sure (much like my role), you mainly only hear from customers/vendors when they are dissatisfied or frustrated. In this case, it is the complete opposite.”

“Good afternoon! I am e-mailing you to express my appreciation for the outstanding customer service we received from one of your employees, Paul Stradtner. My husband and I recently purchased the model home located on 1223 Alto Vista Drive. We loved it the moment we walked in. We were greeted with great enthusiasm from Mr. Stradtner, who should be commended for his strong interpersonal skills, humor, and patience. We were impressed with his knowledge and explanation of the house and his willingness to work with us to make the deal a reality. I’m sure we pestered him with our barrage of questions, but he was always willing to assist us. Please pass along our appreciation of his outstanding assistance!”
– Curt VanGeison and William Stehnach
“There was a lot to like about how our house was built. We saw the quality going into the build. Daniel (superintendent) really kept on top of things and all our interactions with everyone at LifeStyle was really wonderful.”
– Sandra Hammond
The sales person Leslie Brecken with Lifestyle Homes is very continuous to satisfy her clients with building or buying their homes. She wants to make sure you are happy with their homes and will work with your home to get it exactly the way you want with no problems. This company wants to make you happy!
-Melody Resnik (reviewed on Houzz.com)
“We had the best supervisor, Tom Dutton. Everything was on time (really ahead of schedule) and professionally done. Tom made sure our home was built on time and correctly. We passed all of the inspections without a problem! Living in our LifeStyle home truly has been a dream come true.”
“Tom (Dutton), a long overdue thank you. We love the house you built for us. We get so many compliments on the house. You were invaluable, from the design to the finished product. Without your guidance, experience, and knowledge it would have not turned out as well. We would not consider building another home without you. This is the second house you built for us and you did an outstanding job on both. Again thank you. Kindest Regards.”
– Glenda and Richard Bahr
“After living in my home for a year, I appreciate the solid construction and my very low monthly electric bill. Even though my build is complete, the Lifestyle team has continued to be there for me to answer any questions. I couldn’t be happier in my new home!”
– Kristen Krusell
“Hello Tom and Jennifer,
I would like to pass on this email to Tom Dutton’s boss please…
We are very pleased with Tom and his work ethics. He has been excellent in responding to us and our needs. His schedule for building is remarkable.
I am hoping LifeStyle’s workmanship is equivalent to how Tom is performing.. Hopefully we will be just as happy and raving five years after we have moved in.
Thank you very much.”
– Varsha Vaishnav
“LifeStyle Homes, your company is awesome! We have built three homes with you and your customer service is incredible. Thank you for the beautiful plant. So thoughtful!”
– Susan Morris
“LifeStyle Homes treated me as a part of their family. From the initial discussions to the very end, everyone was awesome. Leslie (new home sales specialist) walked me through the floor plan taking care of details I wouldn’t have thought about. Jennifer (interior designer) helped with all the design choices, and Russ (superintendent) took care of me every step with the building details. I don’t think I could have had a better team helping me.
I can’t wait to sit on my balcony in the morning and have coffee before work and use my beautiful huge master bathroom and new awesome kitchen! Thanks Lifestyle!”
– Chris Vellanti
“From the design through the actual build, and finally moving in in December, the entire process was great. Working with Jennifer Sartori (LifeStye’s interior designer) while designing the house, and choosing fixtures and appliances, was a pleasure. When a sudden major change in home choice (from a Monterey II to I) was made March of last year, LifeStyle made the transition and re-plan stress-free. As the house build progressed, Carl Gould (building superintendent) was always on top of the process and kept me informed as each of the major steps was completed. Even now Carl continually works to get the final touches done and handles any problems that surface.”
– Ward Ahders
“My name is Greg Willey and your company is building my home in north Merritt Island. I would like to take some time to let you know how pleased I am with the work that has been completed so far. I have been in construction business for 22 years and specialize in fine detail trim work and cabinetry and I have been known to be a very, very picky judge of craftsmanship. The house is just in its finally rough carpentry phase, but so far every sub contractor has been excellent. Other than a delay with the land clearing, everything has been quick and the work has been stellar. Daniel has been a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to the rest of the process. Hopefully this trend will continue. Thank You.”
– Greg and Kim Willey
“Once Tom (Dutton) took over and the building commenced, we knew we were in good hands. I can’t stress enough how amazing he is. His calm demeanor, professional attitude, and commitment are unmatched in business. He truly cares about the client as well as LifeStyle Homes. His value in the building process and to LifeStyle is immeasurable.
At the end of the day, I would recommend LifeStyle Homes to everyone I know and will praise them to people I meet. The end product, our beautiful home across from the beach, is truly amazing and the process to get there was full of excitement. Thank you LifeStyle Homes.”
– Terri Harris
“There are many energy-saving features to LifeStyle homes that intrigued us. We were able to make some changes to the floor plan to suit our needs, and we were kept informed and involved through the whole building process. Our questions were always promptly addressed. The Design Center made selecting all the finishes for our home easier. It was great to have such a wide selection of materials all in one place. If we were ever to build again we would choose LifeStyle.”
– Charlie Collver
“Linda in sales was very knowledgeable and was key to our purchasing a home in Pineda Ridge. The pricing is fair for the quality of home LifeStyle builds and our superintendent, Russ, did an outstanding job. He seemed to take interest in building our home as if it were HIS. The options available were endless and the entire building process went perfectly. … Our home is absolutely perfect and we almost don’t want to leave for vacations anymore because we feel like we ARE on vacation.”
– Brent Van Bever
“LifeStyle Homes is an extraordinary home builder. If you care at all about the energy efficiency of your home and the quality of the construction, you cannot afford to overlook this company. They built the first net zero-energy home in Brevard County, and we can personally attest to the energy efficiency of that product – for many months of the year, we produce more energy than we use, thereby earning energy credits for those months when we use a higher amount of electricity. Additionally, the quality of construction was excellent, and any problems we encountered were addressed immediately by Tom Dutton, our construction supervisor. The entire LifeStyle Homes staff, from start to finish, was friendly, accessible, knowledgeable, and professional. As a result of their expertise, we ended up with an extremely well-built, energy-efficient home at an affordable price. There’s a very good reason why this company has won multiple awards and was chosen by Extreme Makeover Home Edition to do the build in Brevard County!”

“My experience has been nothing but incredible with LifeStyle. Things were done in a timely manner. If I build a new home in the future, I would choose LifeStyle without any hesitation. Thank you to all of you.”
-Dr. Vijay Katukuri
“LifeStyle has been incredible to work with. Every interaction that we have had has been great. Every person involved has been friendly and approachable. Everyone answers their phone when you call and is willing to help. I have changed my mind several times on parts of the build and every time I have called, everyone has been open to the changes.”
– James King
“I highly recommend LifeStyle. The super on our house was Carl, and he was always very professional and always answered his cell phone when we called. The house is top quality and super energy efficient. We had a raccoon in the attic months after moving in and LifeStyle paid a ton of money to have the insulation removed, have it cleaned, and blow in new insulation. That’s a builder who is serious about taking care of their people.”

“I have never dealt with such a nice group of people. I dealt with Jake and he was especially good. They are very family oriented. They were great with communicating with me during the whole process. They were extremely honest and kept their word. I would highly recommend this company.”
-Reviewed on Angie’s List
“I do not have the words to express my appreciation to Paul, Tom, Jake and the others at the office. This is a dream that has come true. Looking back, I do not know how it all came together, but now, I just marvel at my new home! I am going to spend the entire week next week just being in my new home with my cat putting away things and starting to work on my pool. Michael is coming in a couple of weeks. I can hardly wait to see the expression on his face! Thank you! Take care and bless you all!”
– Maria Silva-Hatch
“Thanks to LifeStyle Homes for building a truly incredible home for us! All the finishes and colors are exactly what we asked for. Many of our friends here in Harmony have seen your excellent work and are impressed with both the design of our home and the workmanship you have supplied. We appreciate all your staff and their dedication to doing a good job. We will be very very happy to get our keys and move in! We can hardly wait to live in our beautiful new home!”
– Dave and Marylin Blair
“Cathy and I are so excited about the progress of our new home! Tom Dutton, our superintendent, is just great. He is always on top of any request we have. We have also had the chance to meet many of the tradesmen that have been working on our home, and they have all been professional and courteous. We have already met some of our soon-to-be neighbors. Most have built through LifeStyle, also with Tom, and they have nothing but praise for him. We are so glad we stopped in and met you, Leslie. You were the positive start to this great adventure, and the LifeStyle team has carried it forward for us. Thank you all.” – Barney and Cathy Weiss
“Carl Gould is really special! He has our home moving right along, but no so fast the guys are cutting corners. No Sir! A+ all the way, and I have NEVER seen a construction site so clean, inside and out! Thanks for everything! You LifeStyle guys are great!”
– Tommy Gates, Sr.
“Cheryl and I want to thank you and your organization for the extra effort to resolve our fence problem. It is refreshing to work with a company that cares about its clients.”
– Mark and Cheryl Doloff
“We want you to know what a pleasure it has been for us to go through the home building process with the staff at LifeStyle Homes! From the beginning to the end, all who had a part in it did a wonderful job. Carl Gould, our builder, made every challenge we thought we had simply go away because of his knowledge about all facets of building a home. Phyllis and I want to thank you, Jake, for your patience, understanding and personal involvement. Thank you ALL!”
– Carl and Phyllis Hunt
Isn’t this incredible that we’ve finally gotten the contracts signed for the model, the house is underway, and we’ve actually gotten to walk though it (several times, in fact) — who would have ever thought???
Larry and I just wanted to thank you again for your part in all of this — and we seriously mean that. When Mom and I stopped into your model to see a LifeStyle home and we talked with you, you took the time to listen to what I was saying and to understand our time constraints. You’re the one who connected all the dots, who set all of this into motion, and we appreciate that more than you know. This has been a long journey for us, spanning several years and with some heartbreak along the way, but the home where we’re now going to get to live when we retire is absolutely beyond question the right place for us.
All of you have been so kind and gracious to us during this process, so we’re counting on this home — when it’s finally ours (is it time yet????) — to be a truly magical haven for us!
Larry and Debbie
I wanted to take a minute to express my thanks for the way in which your staff recently handled a home warranty issue. Everyone was very helpful and professional. I especially appreciate how efficient and thorough Carl Gould was in resolving this issue. He did a great job of communicating and following through. He was a pleasure to work with.
My experience served to reinforce the fact that I had chosen a quality builder who was willing to stand behind their work.
I just wanted to let you know how beautiful I think mom and dad’s new home looks. What a fantastic job the LifeStyle team did. Which is no surprise, but just wanted to thank you nonetheless. Mom and Dad are so pleased with everything and everyone. Dad said Carl was such a pleasure to work with.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful 4th. I know my family is going to…we are planning on cranking up the blender later this afternoon so we can christen their new home with a refreshing beverage!! = – )
It has already been a week since we closed on the house. I wanted to convey my regards to the entire team at Lifestyle. You have built a great home and I look forward spending a lot of years in it. I am confident in the quality of the house as well as any servicing it might need.
“Germain & I want to Thank You for a job well done and special thanks to Carl who has been excellent to work with. He was always there to help and ensure that we were completely satisfied. He did what he had to do to rectify any problems and/or issues which arose as our home was being built. He is one of a kind!
Jake, also want to thank you for your patience even at times it was not always easy. Both you and Carl’s patience and dedication to this project was greatly appreciated.”
– Lorraine & Germain
Thank you! With your company’s leadership, our vision became our custom dream home inside and out. It is awesome! My family loves our home.
We interviewed and priced our plans with several builders. Life Style was the only company to take the time to answer all of our questions, truly cared about the outcome of what we desired for our property, and Life Style’s pricing was extremely competitive with what should be expected for this type of custom work. Before, during, and after construction, all Life Style’s personnel, (especially your on site supervisor), including your subcontractors, were always professional, knowledgeable, caring (took pride in their work), showed up for work on time, and were consistent with what we had agreed too.
Since this is our final dream home, we do not plan on building ever again, but if we do build again, my wife and I are customers for life with Life Style.
“I am currently building a LifeStyle home which is under the supervision of Carl Gould. I wanted to write this letter to express to you how impressed I am with the work that Carl has done thus far. Every time I have called he promptly returns the call, the very same day!! LifeStyle Homes is very fortunate to have Carl on their team. The only reason I know that is because of some of the ‘horror’ stories’ I’ve heard from others (not building a LifeStyle home) about the construction process of their home. Thank you all, for everything you’re doing and continue to do to make sure my new home is everything I’ve dreamt it to be. You are all so awesome!”
– Althea James
“I would like to take the time to commend Carl Gould, my construction supervisor, for the fine job he did overseeing the construction of my new home. He kept me posted as to the work schedule, was attentive to my needs and corrected any minor problems in a timely manner. He is a true asset to your organization and I would highly recommend him and LifeStyle Homes to anyone looking to build a new home. Thank you for building my ‘dream’ home.”
“We chose LifeStyle Homes to build the Floridian model home for us in 2004, because of your outstanding reputation. The quality of workmanship is very evident in our home. We have and will continue to refer potential homeowners to LifeStyle Homes. Carl was our Site Manager. We have built many homes through subcontractors, when we lived in New Hampshire. We have never dealt with a more pleasant, professional and detail oriented individual as Carl.”
– Bart and Marka Defina
“I would like to take this opportunity to commend LifeStyle Homes. I had the pleasure of working with Carl Gould (Superintendent), if making talented people like Mr. Gould available to your customers is in indication of the service that I can expect in the future, you can be sure that I’ll recommend your company to all of my personal and business associates. No questions or answers were left unanswered or unresolved.”
-Trevor L. Thomas
“We felt we met our first friend in Florida when we met Linda. Coming from N.Y., she knew how we felt and was extremely helpful. We are very happy we bought a LifeStyle home. Everyone in the office was great too! Thank you everyone!”
-Donna and Ken Andreski
“I am the happiest, or at least one of the happiest LifeStyle home owners in Deer Lakes. I am an ‘out-of-towner’ and he constantly kept in touch with me both before an after I moved in.”
“Very impressed with Tom, our building supervisor. He always responded quickly to questions and problems, and is very pleasant and accommodating.”
-Rob and Doreen Strait
“We were very pleased with your staff. They were very courteous, helpful, accommodating, understanding, and patient. Tom Dutton was fantastic! He was very patient and answered all our questions. He went beyond the call of duty. He went the extra mile!”
– S.G. and Lois Kluver
“We are writing to you to express our pleasure with the superior work performed by our construction supervisor, Tom Dutton. Mr. Dutton is the most dedicated, conscientious, skilled, and customer focused professional we have met. His commitment to delivering a top quality home and his customer focus are valuable assets to LifeStyle Homes. He made us feel that the customer truly came first.
We went into our home building experience with great trepidation since we do not live in the immediate area. What could have been a harrowing, stressful experience became smooth, easy, and enjoyable under Tom’s direction.
He was able to look after the interests of both LifeStyle Homes as well as the home buyer thus ensuring a successful business transaction.”
