Your ability to think outside the box, and to be flexible, turned out to be the deal maker which allowed our dream to come true. Thank you for bringing Kingswood Homes to Kiawah as a preferred builder. As for the building process, the construction process we experienced could not have been better… it was both pleasant and seamless. In a word, Kingswood Homes were truly “outstanding.” Peter Leeke and Rob Hutzler were always incredibly responsive to our every question and need. The quality of construction is superb, and at every juncture of the building process we were amazed at Kingswood’s desire to please us, even to the point of fixing/repairing things that we, as homeowners, did not request or demand. Also, special acknowledgement has to be made for Louise Leeke who’s excellent and talented hand at decorating helped bring sanity to my wife in making all the choices that have resulted in a showcase type home. It was Louise’s expertise and guidance that provided the “wow” factor that our home possesses. I can say without reservation that if we ever build again, either here or in NC, we will ask Kingswood to be our contractor. I congratulate Kiawah Island Real Estate and partners on selecting a builder like Kingswood who puts the homeowners’ interests first. We felt very special throughout the entire construction process working with each person on the Kingswood team.

When I accepted the Chief People Officer role at Belk I had limited information and knowledge about the Charlotte housing market. Relocating to a new city for a new job and building a new home were wrought with uncertainties, and Jerome and I spent the first 45 days vetting builders, touring homes and researching locations for our relocation from Atlanta. However, when we were introduced to you, Louise and the Kingswood team of professionals, the rest as they say, was history. The Kingswood team was the wind beneath our wings during the design and build process, exhibiting unparalleled professionalism and industry expertise consistently. The high-touch approach and consultative guidance naturally led to on-time, on budget, and an exquisite uniquely designed custom home. You and the entire firm have had a memorable contribution to settling into Charlotte and making it a place we affectionately call home. In my line of business a true testament to customer satisfaction ratings is “would you recommend the company to a friend”. Kingswood has earned my highest rating of approval and I repeatedly recommend Kingswood as a preferred builder to new executives relocating to the Carolinas.
CHRIS & ROBIN BITTERLIN~United States
Robin and I are extremely happy, excited and satisfied with the completion of our new home. From the first meeting with you and JJ, we believed that Kingswood would be the right choice for us. JJ produced the quality design that we wanted in an efficient manner. Cindy’s expertise, patience and advocacy was invaluable. Brian’s prompt and fair handling of our requested changes was much appreciated. Jason’s day to day diligence and problem solving delivered quality, first rate construction in 9 months (despite a difficult year for weather) when we anticipated 12 months or longer. Needless to say, you clearly have an outstanding team of highly professional individuals who take their jobs seriously and deliver great results. I have been in the commercial development business for 30 years and I have never been through such a smooth and conflict free construction project such as this one. To the extent that you see fit, Robin and I would be very happy to recommend Kingswood to other prospective homeowners without any reservations. Thank you for a job well done!!
KENDALL PHILLS~United States
This would be my very first custom home building experience and, contrary to all the myths my friends warned me about 1st time building, Peter and Louise did not disappoint! There is a one of a kind uniqueness and rare trademark that Kingswood imparts in every home they build. I knew the moment I toured his St. Jude Charity Showcase Homes in Stonegate, that this would be my builder. I was drawn to the European feel and the various details throughout their homes. They simply give you a WOW factor in nearly every room and corner of your haven. Working with Louise Leeke and her design team to create my vision into reality was the BEST working relationship I have ever encountered with a designer. She is extremely creative and knowledgeable to her craft. Her attentiveness to her client’s style, budget and demands should be praised.

We just finished our condo renovation in Kiawah Island and wanted you to know how pleased we were with the work done by Kingswood. Kingswood’s attention to detail and insuring that things were done right were impressive. Kingswood even did things to improve our project that we didn’t request like having one of your designers recommend better materials than those we selected, matching doors that we were not going to replace, fixing a mold problem, etc. All of these upgraded the overall project and really provided a better end result. Throughout the project you all kept us updated on the project progress in addition to promptly posting photos to the project website. He also offered suggestions continuously improve the work and was responsive to all our calls and emails. In addition, he was a pleasure to work with and someone you could trust and would go the extra mile, all qualities that are hard to find.
We want to acknowledge the first class service that Kingswood has provided during the remodeling work to our house on Kiawah Island! At every stage of the process, Kingswood kept us informed of progress and helped us with all the little things that meant the project ran smoothly and was finished, both on time and to a very high standard. His use of email and your website to keep in touch with us – in particular uploading regular photographs – meant that we were able to track the project from the UK and see how it was all progressing. This greatly reassured us as the weeks ticked by. We are very pleased with the finished remodeling works and our property manager was moved to comment on the quality of the work and Rob’s ability to work with them to ensure that the work was completed for our first visit. They deal with a lot of builders on the island and I know they will be recommending Rob / Kingswood Homes to clients. We will join them in that by saying without hesitation, we would recommend him and the quality of his work, not just the finished product, but how he goes about his business on behalf of Kingswood Homes.
ANN & KEN STOVAL~United States
We cannot say enough about how much we love, love, love this summer retreat at Seabrook Island. The cottage represents a wonderful escape from the bigger responsibilities at our estate size home. Kingswood exceeded all our expectations and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. We came out of here all of three times during the entire build process.
JOHANNA TULEIKIS~United States
I had big ideas, but Kingswood helped me take this Seabrook Island renovation to a much higher level of quality than I could have possibly imagined on my own. There is nothing convenient about remodeling every room in your house while you are living in it, but this team was like family to us. They rolled out the red carpet and look at this house now? Everyone who visits ask us the same question: When’s the party?
DAVE DUNAWAY~United States
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for the wonderful craftsmanship and time that was devoted to building our Seabrook Island, South Carolina residence. Kingswood builders and your staff are to be commended for blending our house into its surroundings.
I have been involved in building 13 houses and 2 office buildings. My friends tell me that with regard to all the structures with which I have been involved, the Kingswood home is the best. The project was finished within budget, and we are delighted with the final product.
JULIE SOLOMON~United States
I am writing to let you know how much we are enjoying our newly remodeled kitchen! I am not sure if I ever shared with you the story about how many times my husband and I went out looking for a new home. I really wanted new construction, especially a new kitchen. Every time we came back home disappointed with the fact that we were going to get half of the square footage and no view for twice the price. As you know we have a special view! I knew it would be best to just stay put and remodel our kitchen but I had no idea where to even begin. Your ability to work with me and match my personality to my new kitchen was incredible. I never expected to and don’t think I ever would have found this in a new construction home. I love to entertain and the kitchen is always where we end up spending the whole evening. I am so tickled with the way it changed the entire feel of the house. Your suggestion to match my bookshelves in the adjoining den made me feel as if I am in a completely new home. Most mornings when I go downstairs I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. I cannot thank you both enough for making this such a fun and easy experience for us. In a matter of a few weeks with no inconvenience what so ever I have exactly the home I was hoping for all along! I would love for you to use me as a reference any time and am pleased to share my experience with anyone who is considering doing the same thing! Thank you so much.
NICK & CAROLYN MILLS~England
The in-house design consultant at Kingswood helped us make our selections through every stage of construction. The end result is a home we are thrilled with! With a house around 6,800 sq. ft. we were dreading the energy bills. However, the insulating qualities of our Kingswood built home are exceptional. We are warm in winter and cool in summer and our gas and electric bills are lower than any home we have ever owned. Kingswood predicted a close date almost a year out and despite all the challenges of that year, our home was completed within 2 weeks of that date.
LARRY & BELINDA AUSTIN~United States
Larry and I are writing this letter with sincere gratitude in our hearts. Thank you so much for building our home in the Stonegate Community. A home it truly is! We could not have asked for a better builder and we know that God led us to you. We appreciate the building process from start to finish. It was a non-stressful joyride. Your entire building team was professional and always showed the utmost care and concern for making sure that we were satisfied. Louise, you are truly gifted in the area of design. Thank you for going the extra mile to get to know what we liked and wanted. Your discernment of what we liked coupled with your design skills produced a home that feels perfectly right for us. We can honestly say that the house is everything and even beyond what we dreamed. I especially appreciated the well planned and coordinated trips to showrooms to decide on materials, light fixtures, etc. Those trips were fun and exciting. They were also educational and extremely helpful in determining what to choose. We were also impressed with your integrity as builders, ensuring that we got topnotch quality in both materials and workmanship. Everyone who steps in the door stands in awe of the details and character of our home. Overall, we feel that your partnership as husband and wife and builders was an added benefit. Our entire building experience was one of collaborative teamwork and mutual trust and respect. We would gladly encourage anyone wanting to build a home, to choose Kingswood Homes. We feel confident that they would be very well pleased with the results.

Unsere Erfahrung mit Kingswood Homes ist die Beste die wir hier in den USA gemacht haben. Das Team von Kingswood Homes stand uns immer mit Rat und Tat beiseite. Die Qualitaet der Arbeit ist ausserordentlich. Die Zusammenarbeit mit Louise Leeke, um das Interior Design zusammenzustellen, war klasse. Louise war mit Ihren Ideen eine grosse Hilfe. Zudem war damalige Bauleiter Ian immer erreichbar und somit am Ball. Fragen wurden immer schnell beantwortet. Die Qualitaet der Arbeit ist ausserordentlich. Wir wuerden auf jeden Fall wieder mit Kingswood Homes bauen und ohne Zweifel weiterempfehlen.
Translation: Having worked with different builders before, selecting Kingswood Homes as our builder was the best decision we ever made. After three years of living in our house we still love and enjoy it every day. People say building a house is stressful, but working with the Team at Kingswood Homes made it seem like no stress at all. The Superintendent was always very responsive and took great care of us. Working with Louise Leeke, to put the interior design together was the best experience I ever had and to see how everything came together at the end was unbelievable - loved it and still do. Everybody who comes to our home notices the quality of work, especially if it comes to the trim work. I would always recommend Kingswood Homes.

MICHELLE D. HANCHARD~United States
We have been exceptionally pleased with our Kingswood Home. The Leeke's build an outstanding product that is best in class. We knew this was the home for us at our first viewing. Our choice of a Kingswood Home was driven by both the quality of the construction and the unique interior design. The finest materials have been used throughout, which provides the solid foundation and comfort a home needs. Further, the attention to detail is compelling, and no consideration has been overlooked. Each room is complete with unique finishes and features, including even the laundry room and garage. Simply put, it is an extraordinarily well built home. We couldn't have asked for more.
Working with Kingwood homes has been an absolute pleasure. Their help with planning and attention to detail exceeded our expectations. We always felt confident that they had our best interests in mind which eliminated the worry of having to constantly monitor construction. We are thrilled with the outcome of our home and would recommend Kingswood Homes without hesitation.
