We have worked with Eliot Hobbs during the construction of two Kiawah Island homes. Eliot is the quintessential professional. His knowledge of the building process and skills in construction management made the entire project enjoyable, collaborative and successful. Eliot is an exceptional project manager and problem solver; he was singularly focused on both completing the homes on time and on budget while always being focused on the satisfaction of his client. Building a home is a detailed endeavor with a multitude of moving parts; Eliot facilitated all the pieces coming together into a beautiful home we now enjoy with our family and friends!
I take pleasure in offering my whole hearted recommendation of Eliot Hobbs. I have had the opportunity to complete two long distance renovations on my home on Kiawah island with the aide of Eliot. I found him to be honest , straight forward, budget minded, and very skilled at his job. My last remodel was estimated to require three months to finish. Eliot was able to organize and steer it to completion in two, to accommodate my arriving guest!
Once we decided to build a home on Kiawah, we had to educate ourselves on builders. It was important to us that the building process was smooth and without surprises and unexpected costs. After talking with people who had built on Kiawah, and talking with several builders, we decided Eliot Hobbs Construction was the best choice. We were not disappointed!!
Eliot was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was involved from the beginning with our architect to help us understand costs and selections so we could avoid having expensive and unexpected changes along the way. He was always responsive, and we felt like it was as important to him as it was to us that our home was built to the highest standards and quality. What we felt when we first met Eliot was confirmed throughout the building process – Eliot managed the business of building our home with honesty, integrity, and hard work and we could not be happier with the results!!
