…I have worked with Regal Stephens now for some time in and around 30a and feel they would be a fine fit within the existing relationships of builders in the area.  Based on my experiences with them I think their approach to the process of construction and their project management and professionalism all are in alignment with the character and attitudes exhibited… Metaphorically, as Lou Holtz has said, ‘I can say that every person on my team is dedicated to one goal- which is to make me look good!’ (humor added) and I believe Regal Stephens will do the same thing…

Doug Bock, Principal, Domin Bock Architects LLC

I am one of the principals of Domin Bock Architects, a firm located in Rosemary Beach, Florida that has been practicing high-end residential design since its inception in 1982. Recently, we had the privilege of working with Regal Stephens Builders on a large and reasonably-complicated residential project. Russ, Scott, and Ron Porter, along with a dedicated crew of excellent, proficient subcontractors, completed the project on-schedule and on-budget, meeting our client’s aggressive timeline.

Time and again during the project, the Porters demonstrated an absolute commitment to quality and a willingness to do whatever was necessary to insure a successful build and satisfied clients. This was evident in the beautiful results. My partner and I have toured many of their other projects in this area as well, and it is clear that their commitment to quality extends throughout all of their body of work, regardless of budget or location.

Regal Stephens met or exceeded all our high expectations for quality, character, responsiveness, and professionalism and we extend our heartfelt recommendation of their skills to anyone building along the 30-A corridor.

Phil Garner, Former Manager Houston Astros, Compass Point, Watersound, FL

I have known Ron and Maryann Porter for eighteen years… [and] their family [have] been upstanding in the community maintaining the highest integrity in all business dealings.

As principals in Regal Stephens Construction, I consider them the main asset and highly recommend them.

…In 2007 I initiated the process of building a home in the beach community of Watercolor. I had some concerns about managing the build from my home town of Atlanta given the scope and financial investment of the project.

Based on my initial meetings with numerous contractors my first impression of Russ and Scott Porter was very favorable… My ultimate decision to award the job to Regal Stephens was based more on the positive experience… vs. the actual price quote for the project.

Throughout the [project] Regal Stephens has lived up to all of the commitments [they made in their proposal]… The build schedule has been consistent with what was detailed in the bid process and has fallen within the budget quoted. Scott is very detail oriented and maintains the highest standards in quality and workmanship. The level of communication by both Scott and Russ during [the project] has been outstanding.

It has been a true pleasure to work with the Porter family and has made what would seem to be a stressful and hectic process into a very enjoyable one. I would recommend Regal Stephens to anyone undertaking a home construction project.

Dawn Thurber, President, Thurber Architecture, P.A., Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

… Ronald, Maryann, Russell and Scott Porter of the Regal Stephens Company bring specialized abilities to their business and these different proficiencies [result] in a well planned and constructed project. I am extremely pleased with the quality of home [they build], their experience, dedication, and range of skill sets… [as it is producing] among the best in the development.

I am proud to be associated with the Regal Stephens Company and hold them along with the projects they build in the highest professional esteem.

Ashley and I wish to thank you both for all of your hard work and assistance in helping make the home truly the home of our dreams. Russ, your ability to manage difficult situations, handle timely deadlines, and accommodate customer requests far exceeds the competition. Scott, your knowledge and skill in building a quality home, coupled with your attention to detail exemplify why you are among the leading contractors in the area. Both of you have gone above and beyond our expectations in satisfying the customer.

Everyday that I come home, I am reminded that I live in a well built and well designed home. We are fortunate to have come upon such quality, both in your work and in yourselves.

Rick & Sarah Rising, 25 Pond Cypress Way, WaterColor, FL

Well the build process is now over and it’s time to enjoy the new house. Sarah and I wanted to say “thank you” for making the process such an enjoyable one. We have built five other homes, three of which were done long distance and this was by far our most pleasant experience. Our concerns going into the process were making sure we were getting consistent updates, accessibility, meeting our targeted completion date, quality and staying within budget. You exceeded our expectations in all areas. The one thing that really stood out through the building process was your desire to ensure that we got exactly what we wanted. Your recommendations, guidance, honesty and patience along the way were very much appreciated. We wouldn’t hesitate to do it all over again with Regal Stephens.
