  • Carlos M. de la Cruz - Key Biscayne, Florida"
    At all times Mr. Ortega’s professional expertise and fine workmanship has resulted in a timely and magnificent finished product. Mr. Ortega and his crew have been efficient, professional and organized, meeting all the deadlines and requirements…It is our pleasure to recommend CDC Builders for anyone who has future building needs.
  • Dr. Alain Viergutz Ph.D. - Centec International - Key Biscayne
    To whom it may concern, In year 2008, our family decided to purchase a property on Key Biscayne in order to construct our Florida home. After a fairly prolonged process of designing our house and introducing the architectural drawings for approval by the Village of Key Biscayne, we proceeded to choose our building contractor from the multiplicity of options at the time. We are very pleased to have selected CDC Builders to construct our home. CDC's website highlights "Integrity, Experience and Quality Craftsmanship". Many contractors boast about these qualities but come way short when it comes to performing. CDC, on the contrary, provided attention to detial and cost consciousness that went beyond our expectations. We felt we had a group of professional that were truly committed to completing a beautiful home within budget and on time. As the saying goes "they had our back" and we could always rely on them during those trying moments that always "pop up" - at the worst possible time - during a construction project. Jose Ortega, owner and manager of CDC Builders, is a person that aims to deliver to his clients what he committed to when he accepted responsibility for a project. It has been nearly three years since CDC finished building our home yet Mr. Ortega continues to offer support with the minor issues that come up every once in a while. His integrity and experience make writing this letter of recommendation very easy. Jose Ortega and his team deservce to be recognized as outstanding professionals in their field - without hesitation, I recommend them for any construction or remodeling project project.

  • Donald E. Lefton - Founder , Co-owner & Vice Chairman of The Continental Companies (T.C.C.) Developers & Owners of Distinguished Hotels & Resorts"
    The work you have done for us personally and professionally over the years, including the substantial amount of work done on the interiors at our Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne (particularly the spa area) and other projects, has always been carried out with professionalism, efficiency and dependability. I have always found your pricing reasonable and your standards of work excellent. You are a pleasure to work with; reliable on your projected dates; within budget on your pricing; and, more importantly, the quality of work is very good. When questions arise with regard to change orders, we are always able to reconcile and settle those matters quickly and amicably. You have a great reputation and a very high character. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for someone with your talents and personally would not hesitate to utilize you for future jobs in the future.
  • Edgardo Defortuna - Key Biscayne, Florida"
    I would like to have this communication serve as a thank you note and as a recommendation letter to CDC Builders' team for the professional manner in which they conducted the construction process of our residence. We were glad to see your team always interested in finding the highest level of workmanship and quality required to achieve the design vision as well as attend any call with concerns and issues until they were properly and satisfactorily resolved. I would certainly recommend doing business with your company in the future.
  • Eyal - Miami Beach , Florida"
    We have moved into our house and already enjoyed a bunch of happy kids playing in the pool. I wanted to thank you all for the hard work throughout this long process. It defiinetely takes a strong team to navigate through the complexity of building a custom home. We are expecting a baby boy in September and cannot think of a better place for him and our daughter to grow up in than in the house you built for us. Melanie: Your work was always impecceable and gave me comfort to know you were keeping things straight. Eduardo: Thanks for guiding me through the process when I had no idea of what it involves to embark on this adventure. Jose Balandrano: Please send my thanks to this incredibly hard worker who is a great asset to your organization. Jose Ortega: Thanks for sticking with me to complete this great project. Your reputation as a gentleman and a builder is well deserved. Enrique: The defintion of true grit. You have my outmost resoect and friendship. Whenever any of yoiu pass by Miami Beach, please visit. You all have earned a lifetime open invitation for cold beer and hot tea at our home. Thank you for everything, Eyal
  • Joel Frank - Bal Harbour, Florida"
    I hired CDC to do extensive work in my apartment at Oceana Bal Harbour. I have done many personal projects in my lifetime, both residential and commercial, and CDC by far, is the most professional, and detailed oriented contracting firm I have used. Their work is excellent, they are honest and straightforward in their dealings with their client. Fairly and properly managing expectations, providing significant detail on all aspects of the project, and delivering a superior product is not something you generally find with contractors. You will find this with CDC, and this puts CDC way ahead of all I have worked with. My wife and I are from New York and live in Manhattan. As you can imagine, we are very particular and detailed oriented, and in general, don't provide recommendations unless they are truly warranted. In this case, the recommendation is warranted, and well deserved.
  • Kobi Karp - Kobi Karp Architecture
    I wanted to take this opportunity to commend your staff for their eforts and hard work in completing a project of this complexity is a noteworthy accomplishment and clearly evident by way of the quality of construction achieved. Your staff has demonstrated a high level of knowledge, experience, dedication and professionalism. It was a pleasure working them. CDC Builders will always be recommended on my behalf as a high-quality, first-class construction company.
