Lee Molette

CEO at Frank Stanton Developers

“I initially met Ron through a mutual associate. I immediately felt a level of comfort in his integrity, which for me was extremely important.

After being in real estate development for over 20 years I have learned a GC’s integrity is his/her most important asset. You need to be able to trust what they say and do! Once I recognized this comfort, I toured and inspected a number of his projects and recognized the high level of quality and detail he placed in all of his projects regardless of the price point. In fact, one of his clients bragged to me that she had the best quality home of all of her neighbors who had different builders. She felt she had the quality and size of a home twice the price. Since our first project together, I have referred him to family, friends, and clients all of whom have been extremely satisfied with their end product. That t is very difficult to do! If you are thinking about using him, your shopping for a builder can now end! We’ve now worked together on over $10,000,000 in projects and have at least $90 million more.”

Developer, Affiliate Broker at Reliant Realty

“I met Ronnie over 5 years ago as I was bidding out my first flip. As a developer and Real Estate Affiliate Broker, I was for a GC that understood the big picture.

After meeting and hearing Ronnie’s ideas for the property for the first time, there was no comparison to the other GC’s I was bidding out to. Ronnie’s knowledge, creativity, and integrity, both professionally and personally, is second to none when it comes to looking at a project as a whole. His awareness of every detail, most of which would go unnoticed by buyers, is what makes our projects stand out from the rest. Personally, as a Real Estate Affiliate Broker, I can attest to the direct feedback from buyers during our showings on how our homes are simply better built than most of what’s on the market. This is directly attributed to Ronnie’s high standards for consistent quality. Over the last 5 years, Ronnie and I have completed 8 projects to date, totaling nearly $3 Million, and each one has been better than the last! When you work with Ronnie, you are working with a true vested partner.”
