Dear Forrest:

It is with great pleasure that we write this letter to you. We cannot be more pleased with our dream “Castle by the Sea” on Ballast Point in Pirate’s Cove, Manteo, NC. This is our fourth building experience on the Outer Banks and working with you has, without a doubt, been the most pleasurable, exciting, and rewarding experience. The building of our new home was executed in a manner we had not experienced before.

From our very first meeting with you and throughout this entire building process, you have exceeded our expectations. Building a home long distance can be challenging, but your unbelievable communication skills and hands-on supervision and involvement in every aspect of our home construction made this experience a joy from start to finish. You were always easy to reach, even from our home in Northern Virginia. We sincerely appreciated your personal phone calls to update us on our project, as well as the numerous photos you took and sent to us as the construction process evolved. We truly appreciated the fact that you never hesitated to go out of your way to be available to meet with us whenever we were in town. Our beautiful new home is a testament to your professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge of construction methods, quality materials, building codes and regulations, ability to manage costs, work ethic, belief and pride in your product, knowledge of the community, and much more. You possess a keen eye for detail and we appreciated your willingness to offer suggestions or resolutions to any concerns that arose during this process. Your dedicated efforts to ensure things were done the way we had envisioned them is commendable.

All of the workers or subcontractors that we have encountered to date have represented your Company with professionalism, while always ensuring that their day-to-day performance enhances your Company’s goals and philosophies toward customer service and quality products. The finishing details in our home are fantastic. The comments we have received from others reflects the amount of respect and admiration that people in the community have for you, personally and professionally, and the work that you do.

In summary, you have done an incredible job and we would be happy to discuss our positive experience with anyone. We would simply point out that if you want the job done right and you want to be kept up-to-date on progress from beginning to end, call Forrest Seal.

Thanks again for a great experience. We look forward to working with you in the future.Jim and Patty Wood
