Above all, I have come to appreciate what a great partner I have in you personally and your firm.  While we have been involved in many projects, we have never had the trust or relationship in a builder that we do with you, and that is a testimony to your personal integrity and professional standards that sets the tone for everyone involved in your projects. - Bill and Sharon ClintonBill and Sharon Clinton

Success Stories

We do not advertise. We are fortunate that we do not need to do so. We have always believed that if you work hard and provide a quality product at a great price, word of mouth will do enough. It seems to be working. Here are some of the great things that our clients have to say….

Don McDonald

As our journey together is nearing the end, Marilyn and I want to send a note of appreciation to you. We recognized that building a custom house would always entail some ups and downs. However, your and your people’s attention to our needs and concerns smoothed the process and made the journey a pleasant one.

David and Mara Metzner

As a resident of Chicago, we had concerns about building a second home at Palmetto Bluff without the luxury of direct involvement in the entire construction process as we had during the building of our primary residence.

Gary & Pamela Lackey

Under the best of conditions building a custom home is a stressful event. However, doing business with Richard Best and his team was about as stress free as it gets. It started with his creative ‘thinking out of the box’ building plan to minimize cost without sacrificing quality. This was of the utmost importance to

Paul J. Fisher & Nancy K.Waterhouse-Fisher

The house is beautiful. From the beginning, you were the best in taking our wants and translating them into comfortable living space. Your knowledge of what can be done, especially in the luxury style house, is phenomenal. Better yet, you were able to stay within original budge except where we instructed you to upgrade our

Gwynne & Frances Thorsen

Just a little note to say how fortunate we have been to have you and your wonderful team build our beautiful house on Gallavant Road here in Palmetto Bluff. It seems inconceivable that it was just about this time a year ago that we bought our property, met you, looked at your fine work in

Neil and Yvonne Messick

When we decided to build a home in Palmetto Bluff, we had three major worries: we knew nothing about home building; we were going to do it from 500 miles away; and we knew absolutely no one in the area to help us navigate the process. Fortunately, we met Richard Best, and what could have

Tony and Patti Berner

I never thought that I would build a home in Bluffton, South Carolina. I never thought that I would leave the safe confines of Southeast Louisiana. But, Patti and I did. When we decided that we wanted to spend as much time as possible in the Low Country of Palmetto Bluff, we set out to

Immediately after our meeting with Richard

Donald McDonald

Dear Richard, It is difficult to believe we have been in our home in Palmetto Bluff for eight years. As you know, we are selling our home to downsize and better prepare for the next phase of our life. Certainly it is somewhat sad as we have enjoyed the home immensely. The house passed the
