Testimonial

Joe Nix and Nix Construction provided my wife and I with one of the best contractor experiences we have had in the 25 years we have been doing construction and development. As a developer and interior designer, we appreciated very much Joe’s professionalism and ability to work well with our architect to achieve our goals. His staff and subcontractors were polite, professional, willing to please and very skilled. His monthly invoices were accurate, detailed and timely.

My wife valued very much Joe’s excellent sense of design and his creativity in solving problems and I appreciated his scrupulous honesty when encountering construction difficulties. His company’s excellent track record with the local Architectural Review Board and City officials greatly facilitated the permitting and occupancy processes.

We have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Joe Nix and Nix Construction to anyone interested in new residential construction or renovation. It was indeed a pleasure to work with him on what proved to be a most difficult and challenging renovation project.

Sincerely,
Robert McNichols

Richard and I want to thank you for our new beach home. Working With you was a pleasure. We’ve noticed other homes while under construction both here on Hilton Head and in the Atlanta area. It is obvious from our perspective that the quality of your work is superior. Your attention to detail and willingness to build in “our little extras” was really appreciated. The detailed estimate/budget you submitted was very helpful. The cost of the home was in accordance with your projections.

The time of completion was excellent also. We were very pleased with the eight month schedule.

If you would like to show our home or have other prospective clients, call us. Please let me know.

Sincerely yours,
Gloria and Richard Kerns.

Betsy and I would like to thank you for your services in the remodeling/renovation of our home. In review of the scope of the job, I think that you would agree that it took on a “life of it’s own”. Betsy and I made a variety of changes along the way, which added to the cost and time of the work. The end result was a home that we are not only proud of to own and live in, but as well to show off Nix Construction’s skills and talents in making our ideas become reality.

We had very detailed plans from our architect from which to work, and had shared them with four builders. You were the only one that was realistic in presenting to us what you felt was an appropriate time for construction, as well as the process that we would need to go through to accomplish our desires. Every one else just indicated that our job was nothing more or less than other jobs that they had done. Luckily, we knew better, followed our instincts, and went with the person that we could count on and trust would do the right thing for us.

Betsy and I knew from the first scheduled day that the job was to begin that we had made the right choice in builders. You started on schedule, and kept us abreast of your work, so that our expectations were well managed. We were brought in to make decisions on needs or changes in a timely fashion. All of the subs on the job were professional, courteous, respectful, and friendly. You were accessible, informative and communicative in regards to progress or issues that needed to be addressed.

We have heard many people exclaim after new construction or remodeling, “I’ll never do that again!” Betsy and I feel otherwise. We have learned a lot from the endeavor, and if we have another opportunity, we hope to use Nix Construction again. We thank you for an experience that could have turned out very differently than the excellent one that we had!

Sincerely,
Bill and Betsy Sauter

Bob and I wanted to take the time to write and express how pleased we are with our new home. After living here for over six months, we are amazed every day at the fabulous work you and your subs provided. Everywhere we look the attention to detail is evident.

When we lost our home to fire in 2001, we were devastated. The whole process of choosing an architect and builder was a new one for us, since all we had done on Hilton Head was remodel houses. Thank you for making our building process so easy and enjoyable.

Your response to our on going needs, with the settling of the house and the changing of the season, has continued to reinforce to us just what a good decision we made in choosing you as our builder. Bob and I would be happy to be a reference for anyone considering using you as a builder.

People are all too quick to share “horror stories” about building on Hilton Head. from the Town of Hilton Head, to the plantation ASC boards, to unscrupulous builders, the stories abound. Thank you for all of your hard work and for making our building process a pleasant one with a beautiful home to show for it.

Sincerely,
Heather Cherichella

This letter is long overdue. Actually it was started several months ago, but we got sidetracked. Maybe it will mean more now than then because we still love our house. It just seems to get better and better.

When we bought this lot we told ourselves it was just an investment. Building a house was not something we had always wanted to do–having not heard anything good about the process. Horrible stories about delays, overruns, poor workmanship and all kinds of mistakes in general. After a few visits to the lot, the view got to us and we knew we would have to bite the bullet and build.

Since you had done a small remodel for us and it had turned out well, and not having any idea where to start, we called you for advice. That was the beginning of the experience of a lifetime. You helped us with every step, and made building a house a joy and not a chore.

Allen and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. Larry Tuten was a delight to work with arid you will not believe all of the compliments I get on my kitchen. Everyone raves about my beautiful cabinets. No one could help but like Jeff Reynolds, our electrician, and he did a good job too. We have even had him come back and do some outside lighting for us. I could go on and on. We really couldn’t be happier with the way the work was done and the people who did it.

We have ended up with a beautiful home that we know is well built, that was finished when you originally told us it would be, that only had a 3% overrun (not 30) and everything works and we love it.

You did good Joe. We couldn’t be more pleased with our new home and as I said before we love it more every day. Also, we would not hesitate to build another home as long as you are the contractor.

Feel free to bring anyone by to see the house or to call us. We love showing it off. We are very proud of it and you should be also.

Yours truly,
Diann and Allen Moss

Elaine and I want to express our pleasure and thanks for the great job you did helping us with the construction of our new home at 13 Indian Hill Lane. Your professionalism and attention to detail as well as your selection of outstanding sub-contractors made the project exceed our expectations. As Professionals in the design and construction business, doing a project for our own account was difficult. In our nearly 30 years of practice here on Hilton Head, we have to place you at the top of our list of favorite contractors.

Our only complaint is one of budgeting, and that problem was solely of our own doing. We have to admit that the final costs were not greatly different than your original estimates. It has been a pleasure doing business with our and we look forward to collaborating on other projects.

If you should need a reference, please do not hesitate to have your clients contact us.

Sincerely yours,
KRA, Inc.

We chose Nix Construction on the recommendation of others, and we cannot imagine working with anyone else. It is clear their top priority is to please the client.

Joe Nix is a man of high character, honest and fair. His positive attitude and calm demeanor made the process much smoother. He is a true professional through and through.

Sincerely,
Rob and Jennifer Tipton

We’d bought our Sea Pines lot about ten years ago with the idea that some day we’d build a “dream” retirement home. This home would incorporate all the architectural details that we’ve admired in other houses through the years, including a coffered ceiling, decorative wooden trims throughout the house, and intricate wooden paneling in the dining ‘room and stairway.

Fortunately for us, Merrill Pasco, our architect, provided us with several builders names including yours. Merrill’s graceful designs came to reality with your construction team. Your expertise in the home building industry and attention to ¬¨detail made our home construction a rewarding, pleasant experience. This attention to detail and quality workmanship extended to your subcontractors who were all polite and knowledgeable of their craft. Additionally, when our annual warranty inspection was due, you personally came to the walkthrough and provided crews to correct any minor problems in a timely manner.

We’ve enjoyed living in our home for a year now and still continue to receive numerous compliments from neighbors, visiting family and friends and even strangers walking by. We would unequivocally recommend you to anyone who wants to build a quality home and would use you again for home construction.

We thank you and your construction team for making our dream house come true.

Regards,
Jim and Susan Adamovitz
