“Mike Dooley has asked that I write a letter of recommendation based on our professional association over the past years.

I’ve found Mike to be honest and straightforward in his approach to his work and business. He has demonstrated a high degree of trustworthiness and dedication to producing a product of the highest quality. Mike was diligent in every detail of the construction of my home, from the main house of 6,00o+ square feet to the state-of-the-art greenhouse. He is respected and well-liked by every subcontractor involved, a critical component of maintaining a construction schedule.

Mike, and each member of his staff, takes great pride in what they do, and therefore, the end result is always outstanding. Further, I have recommended Dooley Construction to several friends and each similarly enjoyed the experience of working with Mike and his firm.”

“It is a pleasure to recommend Dooley Construction and especially Mike Dooley. He built my home in Tavernier approximately 12 years ago. It was completed on time and with finest quality. Mike is easy to work with, very accommodating and the best of all he stands behind his work. In the past 12 years, he has maintained our home and handled minor repairs and emergencies in a prompt manner. Mike doesn’t build a house and forget you!

Over the years, Mike has made several changes to our house. This summer he installed new decking while we were gone. He is currently re-doing small cabin we have on the ocean. Mike handles jobs from cabin size to mansion size.

I recommend him highly.”

“If you are looking for a contractor who is going to be low bid and finish ahead of schedule, you are talking to the wrong outfit. What you do get from Dooley is workmanship that you will feel very comfortable with at a fair price and delivered in as timely a manner as is possible under current circumstances.

You will also find Dooley to be a person of integrity in that he doesn’t verbally color facts or construe circumstances.

I invite a prospective customer to personally tour a recently completed facility, at which time you will see for yourself a finished product that one can be proud of.”

“Dooley Construction commenced work on my residence approximately four years ago after a lengthy permit process. The house consists of 5,500 sq. ft. on two levels with a pool, three-car garage and guesthouse.
The architect was terminated midway through the design/permit phase. Mr. Dooley filled the void by providing an engineer and the local guidance to complete this phase and keep the project moving forward in a timely manner. Throughout the lengthy construction, Mr. Dooley worked with us to accommodate every request for changes that ultimately provided us with a home that exceeded our best expectation.
My wife is an interior designer and I have built numerous homes in Northern California. I understand better than most the issues associated with building. Mr. Dooley is one of the most reliable, honest and flexible contractors I have ever worked with. The quality of his construction is unquestionable. You will not find a more reputable contractor in the Florida Keys. Mr. Dooley can provide you with my telephone number if there are any questions I can answer.”

“Dooley construction was commissioned by my wife and I for the project of adding on a third floor bedroom, office, and his and her bathrooms with adjacent patio decks, a new wing consisting of 2 floors including 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, a laundry room and kitchen as well as a Great room. An existing pool redo and restructuring the garage and deck were also part of the job. Finally all of this was very complex as it was to be integrated with the existing 2 story, 4 bedroom 3 bath layout. In addition, they orchestrated all of the associated work involved in the project from initial concept through architectural drawings and subsequent engineering. From the onset of the project Dooley construction, lead by Mike Dooley and his team were complete in everything they did. There were no ambiguities associated with the project as there are so many times in construction. From day one they developed a line item budget for the project and continually updated this progress billing as the projected evolved.
Any questions and they were a phone call away.
The teams long standing business in the Plantation Key area was also a significant benefit as they certainly know the area with ALL of it’s associated rules, regulations and nuisances to navigate through it all in a timely manner. Open and flexible to change but knowledgeable and efficient the team delivered a superior project within the anticipated timelines while dealing with all of the challenges associated with construction, including weather. I would certainly recommend using Dooley. construction for a complete and professional home build or addition to an existing structure.”

“There are house builders, and then there are home builders.

Mike Dooley is one of the finest home builders in all of Florida. Mike, his staff and job supervisors are all friendly, knowledgeable and timely with every task handed to them. The job site was organized and well ran. The laborers working for Mike Dooley were very respectful of the fact that Mike was building a family home that could withstand the Florida Keys elements. Everything they do is geared to provide you with the finest quality home. Quality was never sacrificed when a problem arose.

The Dooley Construction Company was extremely diligent in making sure all of our smallest details were attended to. I found Mike, his staff and supervisors to be extremely knowledgeable with knowing how to resolve all of our building issues without major setbacks. The end result was we received a quality home that can be passed on from generation to generation.

I also found Mike and his staff to be honest, reliable and timely with every challenge presented while building our family Tuscan Villa on the Florida Bay. Our home required hours of meetings with the architect due to the amount of detail for wood ceilings and beams. Mike and his staff met every challenge and accomplished exactly what the architect asked of them. Mike is a man of integrity with honesty and quality as his trademark.

If you are looking for a home builder who makes the construction process seem stress-free, a home built with old sc hoo l quality craftsmanship, then Mike Dooley will not disappoint you.”

“It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of reference on behalf of Michael Dooley and Dooley Construction. Like thousands before us, my wife Kristi and I found our slice of Paradise in the Florida Keys. We commissioned Dooley Construction to build our home. The experience was simply fantastic! As out-of-town owners, we were concerned and apprehensive about building a home 100 miles from where we lived. Mike and his crew made the whole process easy and enjoyable.

We found the Company to be experienced, knowledgeable, and reliable. They took the project from permitting to certificate of occupancy in a seamless and smooth fashion. The craftsmanship of the work was superb and they coordinated the work of the different trades without a problem. I visited the site on a weekly basis and not once did I have to ask for something to be redone because of poor quality. More importantly, we passed every inspection as scheduled.

Kristi and I were so impressed with the building process, that we had no hesitation in asking Mike to manage the property for us. We have had an incredible five years of enjoying our home. Mike and his crew have taken the headaches of home ownership away, allowing us to relax when we are home in Paradise.

Without hesitation, I give Mike and Dooley Construction my highest recommendations. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, I would be happy to share my experiences with you.”

“We just completed a second project with Mike, Casey and their team and we would recommend them without reservation.

There are a couple of things that differentiate the Dooley Construction that we would highlight:
Personnel: Their employees and subcontractors are knowledgeable, courteous and want the job done right
Quality / Attention To Detail: They do high-quality work and focus on the details
Transparent Costing: Their cost-plus approach gives you full visibility into their costs and eliminates the normal concerns about how a job is costed/priced
Personal Touch: Our experience was that you felt like the team was treating your project like they were working on their own home

We were very pleased with the work done on our home…We would be happy to discuss our experience with the Dooley team with anyone who would like to talk to one of their customers.

Pam and Bill Saxelby”
