    You got what you paid for,from Marv

    The Phoenix model he built for us is now 8 years old and we have had no problems at all. The Howell homes demand top dollar for resale, just as they did when they were built.

    The Best

    We had Marv and his company build a house for us in Grand Haven! We were so impressed with everyone (staff). It was a wonderful experience for us. Everyone working with Marv deserves accolades for the wonderful, respectful, competent, reliable work that they have done. He was a great role model builder for our community! Louise Dycke

    Loved his homes

    After looking at numerous model homes from the many builders here in Palm Coast, we thought Marv was the best. I never heard anybody talk bad about him or the houses he built.

    Great Builder:

    I really enjoyed working with Marv as a sub contractor and will miss all of his staff. I hope that Charles Rinek can hit the road running with selling Marvs models but Charles can sometimes be difficult to deal with for sub contractors. He needs to find loyalty like Marv has had for years and he can do very well with Howell Homes models.
    Check out the model in Grand landings that marv built. It is sweet!

    good luck!

    Charles Rinek should do very well and keep up the quality / integrity.
    He should think about keeping the currenty Howell Homes staff – they are excellent to work with.

    Could not ask for more

    Marc was wonderful to work with. I was at the site every day.From clearing the land to every singe phase of construction till the house was ready to move in. If I seen anything that I thought was not right all I had to do was speak to Marv and he took care of it. How many bulilders would you be able to speak directly to the owner? Not many. During construction me and my wife were always adding things to the home. One call to Marv and it was done. When we sold the house there was a bidding war and we made out very well. Well over our asking price. That speaks of the attention to detail in construction of the home
