John Seifert (with the full support and exemplary partnership with his brother Fred) have just completed the construction of our dream house. Our experience was so positive, pleasant and uplifting that we are somewhat sad that construction is over. My wife told John seriously: ” please keep your sign on the road as long as possible, it means a lot to us”. I have to confess that originally, I did not want to build from scratch on an empty lot; I was concerned it will be too stressful and I will not be able to get the quality I wished while busy with my responsibility at a cancer center 100 miles away.
I had my share of mixed experiences and frustrations with constructions and renovations in the past. Yet, we wanted to have a modern, uncompromising, high-quality house to match our taste and we could not find anything reasonable for sale in the North Fork. Luckily, we found an available empty lot. My concerns evaporated quickly after several meetings with the Seiferts, and after visiting houses they built and interviewing some of the owners. All were expressing their praise of the Seifert brothers beyond our expectations. Fred and John helped us from the very beginning, recommended potential architects with modern construction experience and later worked in full harmony with our architect John Berg and his staff. We consulted with them throughout the design process, with their experience and sound advice we avoided ideas and materials that could have made our budget unmanageable. We were so convinced that the Seifert brothers are the right choice for our project that we did not even wish to bid. We were not disappointed; the budget discussions were fair and constructive and we felt that we will be getting the best for our budget. During the quickly flying months of construction, we had nothing but very favorable experience. John Seifert had many great ideas for better space use, improvements on design and solved smoothly any unpredictable issues that normally emerge during construction. John is a master coordinator of his team, highly respected by his experienced sub-contractors and leads by example. Both John and Fred helped with our choices from outside manufacturers, worked in harmony with companies from California to Virginia to adopt and coordinate our orders and its safe delivery and perfect installation in a timely fashion. The choice of sub-contractors is critical and luckily the Seiferts teams have been working with them for years, and the relationships go back beyond one generation; real pros that proved highly responsive to any change or additional challenge. They were top choices. It made a big difference. Multiple town inspections went smoothly and many professional visitors complimented the quality of construction and finishing. Even though the Seiferts have been building for many years, we felt only enthusiasm for our own project and total personal dedication, not just like another job on the list. we have many examples, but observing John himself (with Fred’s sons as assistants) operating a large forklift to unload a challenging delivery of gigantic glass door units from San Diego was very telling. We experienced John’s dedication and calming approach multiple times. Only recently, we had no power when a generator did not kick in during a storm. John left home during dinner time to come and restore power. I have multiple similar stories, but this is the time to summarize. Engaging the Seiferts and working directly with John have proven to be our best and most important decision. It has made a process I was very concerned about, pleasant, uplifting and truly unforgettable; and on top it- we are now enjoying the perfect house of our dreams.
