What Professionals are Saying About MT Builders

Gary D. Todd, President | Todd & Associates, Inc.

“MT Builders has always approached pre-construction activities in a very hands-on manner with an open-minded and flexible approach with the goal of getting the best design for the client’s budget. Most of all, they are a team player. I would not hesitate to recommend MT Builders to our clients and do so without qualification.”

 

Douglas T. Whitneybell, President | Whitneybell Perry Inc.

“We are fortunate to have MT Builders involved early in the design process where their suggestions are a positive part of the process resulting in additional construction efficiency and reduced costs.A good day is working with Mike and his team.”

 

Chapin Bell, President | PB Bell Companies

“We know that there is no firm out there that builds to the quality that MT Builders does. This quality stems from experience, skill and “hands on” involvement of the entire team at MT Builders. This starts with Mike Tarver, project managers and coordinators, to the on-site superintendents. We can’t imagine any other firm building a PB Bell apartment community.”
