Thank you for your assistance over the past few months in assisting in the completion of our home.

As a matter of background, you may recall that we were in dire straits having had to dismiss our original contractor due to his inability to properly complete the home.  We recognize that many builders would not be interested in taking on a project that someone else started.  Your willingness to take on the project and your attentiveness to its completion was a testimony to your energy and commitment.  Our previous experience involved an inattentive builder who was disinterested in responding to our needs let alone the requirements of construction.  Your attitude, notwithstanding that you had substantially less to gain in taking on a project so late in the process, was completely the opposite.  You understand construction and demonstrated a desire to get the job done properly and efficiently.  Kim and I have benefitted from this.

You have taken an active role in attending to addressing our issues and have made every effort to ensure that we had confidence that the job would be completed with as little disruption to our lives as possible.  You exceeded our expectations and I only regret that we were not fortunate enough to have you at the outset of our project.

Kim and I greatly appreciate all of your efforts and are very thankful that we were fortunate enough to have you assist us in a time of need.

If you have any prospective clients that would like to discuss our experience with you, please feel free to refer them to us.  We would be most pleased to speak with them and convey the great job that you have done.

Yours truly,

Joel Scoler

Dear Bryan,

As we are getting close to the completion of this extensive and complex project that started with just a piece of land and a concept nearly 4 years ago, Francine and I want to thank you for your continued support and creativity in delivering our dream to us.  The finished project is a pleasure to live in and to host guests.  Congratulations, it is everything we had hoped for ,and more.  It was so unique in many respects that choosing the right contractor was critical.  We know for sure that we picked the right one.  And we gained a new friend in the process.

Thank you once again for all that you have done for us.

Jordyn Developments was hired to do a substantial renovation and addition to our farm property near Guelph, Ontario.

The project was a large one, complex in parts and thus had the potential for delays and disappointment.

At the end of the day, the project was completed on time, within a reasonable deviation from the original budget and we were and are very satisfied with its outcome.

Bryan put together a very good crew who were hard working and knowledgeable in their respective trades and at all times were considerate of an owners needs and expectations.

I found Bryan to be decisive and continually making the proper decisions that were necessary as a result of changing conditions.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Bryan to anyone who was interested in using him, nor in using Bryan’s services again if the opportunity arose.

Yours truly,

Mitchell Oelbaum

“Have lived in this home for 3 years, it’s obvious it’s very well built. Also, two years beyond our one year home warranty, Bryan still always takes our callas and responds in a prompt and helpful manner. Our Experience with Bryan Letofsky has been very positive and I happily recommend his services”

I’m happy to write this letter and to thank you for the work you have done building my house. The lot I started with had significant potential and the architect and designer you suggested were most helpful in realizing the full potential of the site.

Dear Bryan.

Words cannot express our gratitude for all that you have done for us. From day one you made us feel comforted by your knowledge, ideas, and insight. When we looked at extending our renovation to include a small space on the third floor you saw the potential immediately. With your guidance and Danny’s incredible framing abilities, our third floor is the “crown jewel” of our wonderful renovation. Like so many first time renovation couples, we were VERY concerned that the project would run smoothly. We are very lucky to have found you and your team.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

-Ian and Fern

J.T.

The lot I started with had significant potential and the architect and designer you suggested were most helpful in realizing the full potential of the site.

The building went very quickly and smoothly. Five months from demolition to completion of a 2100 ft2 house was faster than I expected, despite your reassurances! The house is now 8 years old with no issues at all.
The quality of the workmanship is excellent, and the finishings are of a custom level that I don’t often see in other houses.

Your help in the maintenance aspect has been much appreciated. When I had a minor furnace problem, you immediately put me in touch with the contractor who initially installed the system and the problem was fixed within 24 hours.

Overall, I was very pleased with the building process and am delighted by the finished product.

Paul & Patti Shugart

We are writing to express our highest level of satisfaction with the work performed by Bryan Letofsky of Jordyn Developments who was retained by us to complete the renovation/reconstruction of our home in Lawrence Park.  We were absolutely delighted with the working rapport developed with Bryan, his continued high level of service throughout the entire project and the high level of consideration shown by Bryan to provide good advice as we tackled the many decisions that had to be made throughout the entire process.

When we performed a background check on Bryan’s prior work, we spoke to many of his former clients and were consistently told that he always completed his projects on time and on budget, except where the client had made decisions to upgrade materials or change lay-out or design at the last minute.  Our experience was no different.

Beyond the comfort of knowing that the project will get done according to Bryan’s projections with respect to time and budget, we would strongly endorse working with Jordyn Developments because the experience was a pleasant one.  Throughout the entire project, Bryan was very attentive to our issues and concerns.

We would highly recommend Jordyn Developments for any housing project.  We are confident that Bryan’s “project builder’s fee” approach saved us considerable money relative to the more traditional fixed price approach.  Perhaps more importantly, we are ecstatic with the end product, which in large part was due to Bryan’s project management capabilities, both in terms of the pleasurable way that he worked with us to create the best possible design, and his effectiveness in dealing with the trades.

Your sincerely,

Paul and Patti Shugart

I can honestly say that it was a most enjoyable experience. I told my wife after we moved in that it was such a great experience dealing with Bryan that we should do it again in a few years!

This letter of thanks for the superb job you and your team did on our house has been too long in coming.

As you know, for many years, Melissa and I wrestled with the decision of whether to move to a new house or to renovate ours. With a bit of help from spiraling housing prices, we finally decided to commit to a substantial renovation. What you may not know is that we met with three builders before talking to you. Each had been highly recommended but we did not get the feeling from any of them that they were the “right” choice. Several days later, we asked you to come to our home and after a 30 minute conversation, we were both knew that we had found our builder.

Construction, or rather demolition, started in August 2006 and you delivered our home 3 weeks earlier than promised in late April 2007. You did this on budget and remarkably, given what I hear from most other people who have gone through the process with other builders, without a single significant issue. From start to finish, you inspired confidence and for us made what surely can be one of the most trying experiences a person or couple can go through about as easy a process as I imagine it can be.

We have been in the house now for over a year and are thrilled. The quality of workmanship is excellent and your recommendations on where to spend money and, perhaps more importantly, where not to, have shown over time to be great advice.

Please use this letter or feel free to pass on my name as a reference for anyone considering using Jordyn Developments.

This letter is to serve as a positive reference for Bryan Letofsky and Jordyn Developments who employ some of the best people I have ever dealt with. Every person that Bryan brought to our house was kind, polite and wonderful at their trade. Every trade he used, arrived with gusto early in the morning and stayed until dark in order to finish their part of the construction of our house. They also cleaned up after themselves and truly treated our house kindly – regardless of what stage of construction we were in.

Before construction started, Bryan laid out a time line and a budget for us. He stuck to it and anything over the time or the budget was a change on our part that was always explained and communicated clearly by Bryan. Bryan handled our entire project with the utmost personal integrity, fiscal integrity, and structural integrity.

Another great thing about Jordyn Developments was the ability to always get in touch with Bryan. Unlike many contractors, Bryan was always in touch with us and kept us updated as much as we kept him updated. My questions, comments, and requests were fielded with respect and a spirit of willing cooperation. My husband and I had a very pleasant experience with Bryan and the work that he did for us and we would only ever use Jordyn Developments in the future! Please feel free to contact me with any questions and you are welcome to come walk through our new house!

Peter & Neri

We hired Bryan Letofsky and Jordyn Developments to build our new house for us in 2006. This was our first time undertaking a building project and Bryan was extremely helpful. Our house was built to an extremely high quality standard, unmatched by virtually anything else we have seen that would be comparable. It was completed within the time period originally outlined and we were able to move in on schedule. Throughout the project, Bryan’s advice was consistently practical, focused on the long-term and responsive to our family’s tastes and desires.

We have now been living in our house for more than two years and we continue to be delighted with the quality and workmanship that went into our home. Bryan has consistently been available to us following the completion of the project to assist with any follow-up matters and general maintenance advice.
