Client Comments

“My wife, Shirley and I are happy to provide a very strong, positive endorsement for the work Mancuso Development did on our large home renovation in Duck. 

We believe their construction workmanship and finishing craftsmanship are exceptional, in fact unexcelled, here on the Outer Banks. Their model home in the Currituck Club and material showroom in Corolla are what convinced us to choose them over several other high quality builders. Their finished work exceeded our expectations. One thing that particularly impressed me the most, was Mancuso Development’s long standing crew, their experience, workforce continuity, and sub-contractor relationships. Mancuso Development takes care of their people who also all obviously take great pride in doing their best, which shows in their finished product. Our home is not in any OBX rental program, but whenever you’re in the area stop by and we’d be happy to show you the Mancuso Development quality we got in our extensive home renovation.”

“Dear Bernie, This is a letter to thank you for the key part you played in fulfilling our twenty-year-long dream of owning a piece of the Outer Banks. I hope this story of our journey helps convey the warm memories and wonderful experience we had throughout the construction process with Mancuso Development.

You met us at our site to better explain how the sand, trees and bushes were going to look like when Magnolia Bay was completed. You did a great job, and with you standing amidst the ditches and heavy equipment, we could actually visualize the layout. You left us with a strong feeling that you knew how you wanted to convert the land and that you had the experience to get it done correctly. However, being raised in New York, we learned that “too good to be true” is just that, too good to be true. We were naturally skeptical of phrases like, “premium,” “high quality” and “first class.” However, based on meeting you and reviewing the walk-through of what was to become our home, we decided to put our money down. 

Construction began, and as an engineer, I could finally see what looked “too good to be true” become a reality. We made many trips to see the work in progress and from the very start it was surpassed my expectations. The framing had twice as much wood as I expected and the workmanship was excellent. The painstaking attention to detail that you are known for in Corolla is absolutely true and has remained so to this date. As the closing date drew near, your office sent us information for contacting the utility, cable and telephone companies. Small details perhaps, but when you are building a house long distance; it’s a comfort to be in good hands. Our skepticism dissipated quickly; Mancuso Development is truly a special group of “too good to be true” people.”

“Dear Fran, Thank you for all your help during our renovation. I could not be more pleased with the services provided by Mancuso Development. Renovating a home from a remote location seemed like a daunting task, but you and your crew made it pleasant and possible. 

I was very impressed with the upfront resources you put on our project to make sure we collectively found the best solution, which insured our goals were properly communicated and later met. 

The bid process was straightforward and accurate. The quotes established were very realistic and I was very pleased that everyone stayed on budget. 

I especially appreciated how responsive you and Jay were during the renovation. Whenever I called I could always count on an immediate response and follow-up to my needs. 

The quality and level of tradespeople used were topnotch. They were always professional and courteous. Even after the hurricane when everyone was working overtime, Mancuso Development was able to get the proper people and resources scheduled. 

It was truly a pleasure working with all of you. I will continue to refer people to Mancuso Development and continue to use you for our future needs.”

“Dear Bernie, Arlene and I would like to take this opportunity to say “thanks” for a job well done. 

It is sometimes difficult to find a company that keeps their word, but Mancuso Development is truly one. You delivered our vacation home on time as promised. We have built several homes over the years, and this is the first one that was completed on time. 

Bernie, it is because you have such an excellent team in place that we were able to build a home over eight hours away and not have to worry. We felt that our extended family was looking out for our interests. 

In a few years we will be building our retirement home and look forward to working with you and your associates once again.”

“Dear Bernie and Fran, Building a home from afar is not an easy task. You and your team, however, eased our anxiety and met our expectations in every stage of the project. 

You were a pleasure to work with and we could not be happier with the final result. Thank you for your patience with us (especially you Fran). You have made our dream a wonderful reality on the Outer Banks. 

Should we build again, we would certainly use Mancuso Development. We would also be happy to speak with any perspective clients in the future. Feel free to show them our home anytime. 

Thank you again for making this an easy and enjoyable experience.”
