Meet Some of Koogler Homes’ Happy Homebuyers

It has been just over a year since we moved into our beautiful Koogler home on the water in Cape Coral. After hearing so many horror stories about bad experiences with builders, we were prepared for the worst and instead, had a wonderful experience from start to finish.Read more

Don is a master craftsman and very creative in his designs and creations. He came up with so many unique ideas, both large and small, that have our friends, neighbors and visitors marveling at the finished product. His wife Ginny is great and the lead Superintendent Marty is the best in the business.

One anecdotal example that sums up the quality and attention to detail is that we had an extremely small punchlist at the closing and Don went through with a practiced eye and found small items that even we missed. He asked us to start a new list of items that we found during the course of the first year and sent Marty and a team of subs out a few weeks ago who took care of our very short list of items within a couple of hours.

We are proud to have the Koogler Homes plaque on our wall and highly recommend Don Koogler to any discerning people looking to build a magnificent custom home in Lee County. His pricing is fair, transparent and honest with the finest craftsmanship in the area.

Thanks again for turning our dream into a beautiful reality and doing it in such a low stress way!

Don & Joanne Uyeno

Every single day, we feel blessed to have built our new home with you. We love it. We cannot tell you enough how pleased and privileged we are to live in a Koogler Home.Read more

Your attention to details, your craftsmanship, your efficiency and your constant presence during the building phase paid off. Yes, there were minor issues, which is normal when building such quality custom homes, but they were quickly and efficiently solved. You made the whole process real easy with a result that is well above the regular Florida standards.

You were easy to work with even if we lived next to the project and were on the construction site every day asking questions, looking over everything, in other words bothering you. It has been a real pleasure working with you and we are very proud to own and live in a Koogler Home for many years to come.

Thank you.

Few people in this world truly love their jobs, and those who do are the lucky ones. I believe that Don Koogler of Koogler Homes is one of those people.Read more

His enthusiasm is contagious, and his sincerity in trying to please the customer and create a beautiful and structurally sound home is always evident. … If you want a builder whose work ethic is impressive and someone who is a pleasure to work with, he is a great choice.

We enjoyed working with Don, his wife Ginny, and the rest of the Koogler Homes' gang; and now consider them friends.

A couple of years ago, we had our 4,000-square-foot home in North Fort Myers, FL, built with Don Koogler acting as general contractor/ construction superintendent.Read more

We made many changes to our original plans. Don gave us many ideas as we were building the house such as, adding niches, interesting ceiling finishes, and beautiful molding in every room of the house. His ideas helped us achieve the look we wanted. If he had suggestions or other ideas, he was not hesitant to offer them — making it a pleasure to work with him.

We found Don's previous experience in the construction industry to be invaluable and are very happy with the final result. We would highly recommend Don Koogler to anyone thinking of building a home in Southwest Florida.

Carol and I are thrilled with our home built by Koogler Homes. When we built a custom home in Minnesota in 1999, we learned that it was necessary to visit the job site frequently to make decisions and correct mistakes.Read more

That was easy since we were living only a few miles away. When we decided to build in Florida we knew that it was vital to find a builder that we could count on doing the work right since we would not have the opportunity to visit the site very often.

There were numerous high-end homebuilders to choose from. We did research on the Internet, talked to a number of them and toured model homes. The decision became clear when we talked to subs on the job sites. The subs working for Koogler Homes gave a consistent response. Don expected a great deal and if he wasn't happy they knew they needed to do the work over again but they all said he was fair and a good person to work for. When we asked whom they would want to build their house, they said without question it would be Koogler Homes.

Don treats the construction of a house the way an artist would treat a work of art. Under his direction, the meticulous detail throughout the house is distinctive from all others. The finished product exceeded our expectations. This will be our last home because it is perfect.

… Don and his team remain a valuable resource. If we are looking to change our pool service or just trying to find information about something going on in the community, we can count on advice from the friendly staff. The word that comes to mind when I reflect on our dealings with Koogler Homes is integrity. This is unusual for a builder.

Rob and I just want to take this opportunity to thank you and your entire staff for making the process of building our dream home a memorable and effortless one.Read more

One of our major concerns before the building process began was having a home built long distance. This was mitigated right from the start by the way you and your staff kept us informed every step of the way.

We know that your heart and soul went into building our home. Your staff provided consistently excellent service during the twelve-month process. It has been a pleasure to be associated with people who know the meaning of quality, efficiency and workmanship and take pride in the homes that Koogler builds. It is an honor for us to own a Koogler home.

We hope that our personal relationship with you and Ginny will grow and you can count on us to recommend you and Koogler Homes. Thank you again. We look forward to many happy and memorable years in our home.

This is the fourth home I have had built, but the first time I have done so long distance. Building such a grand home in Florida while still living in Ohio could have been such a daunting task, loaded with problems.Read more

I do not believe any builder can take on the intricate project of building a new home without some problems popping up. This is the real world where we have limited control over the weather, inspectors, building code changes as well as managing so many sub-contractors and suppliers. All we had were typical and minor issues that were dealt with quickly, rationally and reasonably.

Once we met you and saw the model, the realization was immediate that you would build the home we wanted, with the quality we expected. You handled the project from teardown of the old property through to the final detail of our new home. We were very pleased to take possession of our Florida residence two months ahead of schedule. I have already spoken to others who are contemplating building with Koogler Homes, and have recommended you strongly and without hesitation. It has been a great experience and I wish you the best in all your endeavors to make Koogler Homes the Premier Builder of Southwest Florida.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to live in a Don Koogler home. Both Don and his wife Ginny were extremely helpful and cooperative before and during the construction phase.Read more

Working long distance proved to be no problem as the work progress continued in a most timely manner and was finished ahead of the projected completion date.

Don's artistic ability, attention to detail and craftsmanship shows in every stage of building and every room. We expected quality, and from Don to the superintendent to all of the sub-contractors, that's what we received.

We are very proud of the fact that we have a Koogler home and as a custom builder he is the best.

Don Koogler built our waterfront home in Cape Coral. We found it really easy working with Don. He came up with so many innovative ideas to make our home a special one.Read more
