We are currently working on our second project with Bryan and would not hesitate to work with him on a third. His desire to be better means he is always presenting us with innovative ideas and products. Along the way, he became not only our builder but our friend as well. He is honest, up front and always available when we need him. We would highly recommend Bryan and the Jordyn Developments team.
We were very pleased with the service from Bryan and the rest of the Jordyn Developments team. Everyone we interacted with was eager to help and problem solve and Bryan was always reachable. Truly reliable and quality work and customer service.
We lost our home in a devastating fire and felt overwhelmed and unprepared for the idea of building a new house. Then we found Jordyn Developments. From day one, the team was excellent- patient with our questions and full of ideas and suggestions for how to make the home the best it could be. We were given and budget and a schedule and the team stuck to it. We felt a part of something through every step. The finished product is gorgeous, finely crafted, beautifully done. We could not be happier.
Jordyn Developments built me a wonderful bungalow after a "near tear down" of a 50's bungalow. It was my first project of this magnitude so I wasn't sure what to expect. Bryan's team of workers worked well with my designer and this is demonstrated by the attention to detail throughout my house. Bryan has hand picked his trades over the years to be "cream of the crop". Advice Bryan gives to his clients is sensible, practical and cost conscious. Bryan is responsive to his clients questions (and anxieties) and answers quickly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jordyn Developments to anyone that wants an honest company to build them a high quality product.
I really don't know where to begin to laud our satisfaction with the relationship my husband and I had with Jordyn Developments. Every step of the way was handled with professionalism and courtesy! From our first meeting at the condo where Bryan met with us to discuss possible approaches, to the discussions of renovating to the estimated costs of his suggestions- all was discussed with great concern that we would be happy! In fact, we felt confident enough to leave Toronto for the winter. We kept in touch by phone and email and a spread sheet was provided as to the estimated costs of the entire project. Bryan provided all of the trades people required to transform the ugly space into our home. We returned home in the spring and the job was almost complete. So yes, my husband and I would highly recommend Jordyn Developments to tackle any renovation one has!
Bryan, I just want to thank you and your crew for a job well done. Yo made this experience so easy for Wayne and I. Everything you did to our Victorian Reno was very much to our liking. We have now lived in our house for 2 years and we love it more everyday. We continue to get compliments from our friends and we don't hesitate to recommend you to anyone who wants to build or renovate. Again, thanks for an amazing job!
In the summer of 2015, my wife and I, as empty nesters, were trying to decide between a move to a condo or a "refresh" for our home. We met with Bryan Letofsky and his vision for a renovation sold us on the idea and the work began in the early fall. Our designer and cabinet maker were delighted to be working with Jordyn Developments and the coordination and co-operation Bryan elicited from everyone involved was wonderful. When one trade was done the next trade was literally in our driveway ready to begin their part. The entire main floor was redone as well as parts of the second floor. From start to finish, the job took eight weeks. We lived in our basement and the work was so tidy and professional that we were barely put out. Everything was done perfectly and we have not had any need for follow-up visits or repairs. You will not find a more agreeable group of people to work with than Jordyn Developments. We are thrilled with the work they did and have had nothing but the highest praise for the renovation from everyone who visits. We recommend Jordyn Developments without hesitation or reservation.
We love our new home and it's hard to believe that we have been here a little over 3 years. It was daunting to think about creating and building a custom home, but Bryan and the Jordyn Developments made the process seamless. The architect that Bryan recommended was a great fit and she designed a wonderful home. Once we broke ground, work never stopped and the sub trades worked well together to deliver a high quality finished home that came in on time and, aside from the ground conditions requiring deeper foundations, on budget. Bryan was always readily available to answer questions and he provided sage, impartial advice throughout the building process regarding where we could save money and where we needed to spend it. It was a pleasure to work with Bryan, his staff and sub trades-- they were polite, professional and focused on client service. I have no hesitation recommending Bryan and Jordyn Developments for any new build or renovation project and I would hire him again in a heartbeat for anything we needed.
Building our house was the biggest project we had ever undertaken. We needed a person and company we could put our trust in to, listen to our needs, give us the right advice, be up front and honest, and deliver a high quality product. Bryan and his team always took care to do all of those things, while communicatng clearly with us so we understood what was going on and when. We could see that they wanted to deliver a great house and they did. We absolutely love the house that Bryan built for us. Once the job was finished, Bryan did not disappear. He stood by his work and if we ever needed help, he was there to assist. Obviously, building a house can be stressful in some ways, but we always felt comfortable knowing we were dealing with a true professional who wanted us to be happy with the house he was building for us.
We'd never built a home from scratch before and we were rightfully fearful. Our new home is one of our biggest investments.
Bryan was recommended by our architect (one of the most highly regarded in Ontario), as one of his tried and true contractors. He was right! From the start of construction to the finishings, and for 7 years since the build has been completed, Bryan and his team have provided sound advice, exceptional service, quality recommendations and incredible loyalty. Bryan's committment to excellence and to service is deeply personal. And because it matters to him, it matters to everyone involved. There is no perfection in a plan or a build. Given that, dedication matters.
The only costly error we made on the build was mine- I didn't use one of Bryan's trades. But when anything involves Jordyn Developments, Bryan and his team respond immediately, show up and make it right. We love our home and have the deepest respect for Bryan and his team. It is not easy or wthout cost to stay on top of things but they do. Our family is deeply appreciative of Bryan's values and the quality of his work.
The team at Jordyn Developments was an absolute pleasure to work with. They were creative, courteous, performed the job on time and most importantly did an amazing job on my house! I would never do another job without them.
In 2013, I decided to move to Toronto because of my desire to move downtown. I had an opportunity to work with Jordyn Developments. I found Bryan's team to be highly responsive, detail oriented and transparent. They also had years of experience in managing renovations on historical homes. My project was finished in les than a year and was essentially a new build from the foundation up. I would highly recommend Bryan and use Jordyn Developments on future projects.
Joel S 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.
Bernard D 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.
Paul & Claude O’B It has now been over two years since the completion of our renovation and we just wanted to let you know how happy we’ve been with the whole project… We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone contemplating a significant residential home renovation or new construction.
Mitchell O 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.
Jordan T MD, FRCP(C) 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.
Julie P 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.
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.
Ian & Fern 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.
Dr. H. 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!
Paul & Patti S 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.
Miles K. 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.
Penny S. 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.
