The Marcese Group did absolutely superlative work on our Naples, Florida condo this year. The job included remodeling our kitchen as well as extensive painting & screening. Thanks to Nard’s expertise, the kitchen is now the crown jewel of our condo. He and his crew opened up the floor plan, added new cupboards, granite counters, lighting, etc. at a very reasonable price. All the work was completed while I was "up north," yet I felt like I was part of the project because Nardi communicated frequently with on-line photos so I could watch progress being made. Communication, dedication to high standards of workmanship, and interior design skill are the hallmarks of the Marcese Group thanks to Nardi. Not to mention, everything was done on schedule and not a speck of construction debris was left behind. I am looking forward to working with the Marcese Group on the second phase of rejuvenating our little piece of paradise in Florida as they have my complete confidence and gratitude. --Gemma, Amherst, NY

We recently purchased a new home in the Quarry. The Marcese Group was recommended to us. We used Nardi and his sub trades to install crown molding, plantation shutters, paint and install electrical fixtures. All the trades were courteous, efficient and trustworthy. We are continuing to use Nardi for our Home Watch. We found Nardi to pay particular notice to details and to be sure the jobs were completed with excellence and satisfaction. We would highly recommend the Marcese Group - no job is too big!

We bought our condo, but like all resale, there were things I didn't like, and Marcese Construction was a referral from someone, and I'm so glad they did. Nardi and his full crew, do a fantastic job no matter what the job. Very experienced and qualified, all the while being very professional, and trustworthy. If you need anything done, they can do it and do it right the first time. Also have used their cleaning services which were great, and they did a fantastic job!

We used Marcese after we closed on our new Pulte home to install Crown
Molding, reconfiguring all our Closets & Garage cabinets (cabinetry was excellent), recessed lighting and installing Flat panel TV's including moving electrical outlets. There craftsmanship was excellent.
The most important part was that they always showed up when scheduled.

We will use them again when we put in an Outdoor Kitchen.

My wife and I purchased a condo in The Quarry Naples that needed some work before we could move in. The condo needed crown molding, painting, tile work, electrical work, hard wood floors and even a custom built in TV installation. By the time we arrived in November all the work was done and everything was exactly as we had hoped. These guys are professionals and I would recommend them to anyone.

Tom Bothe Naples, Florida


The Marcese Group under the watchful eye of "Nardi" provides an outstanding service that takes your home to another level. From Crown Molding to Hidden Rooms to Faux Painting they can do it all but most importantly… They DO IT
RIGHT!

Really.... No hassles, prompt courteous work from all. They took my newly constructed home at The Quarry in Naples and dressed it up.

Easy to refer them because they give exactly what you asked for...

To Whom It May Concern:
I want to take a moment to write a letter of recommendation for Arnaldo R. Pantaleon.  I have dealt with Arnaldo for the past eight months.  He has been instrumental in accomplishing numerous issues resulting from our original punch list and warranty requests for our home in Fox Ridge South in Parkland, Florida.  Arnaldo was very diligent at ensuring my issues were resolved.  Additionally, he presents himself well and his appearance; demeanor and communication skills are excellent. He has been very knowledgeable about the steps involved in getting warranty items corrected and he communicates this in a way that is easy to understand.  He has been very sincere in his commitment and dedication to accomplishing all of my unresolved issues.
More importantly, Arnaldo has had to coordinate all of these issues through the builder.  He has done so in a very cooperative and professional manner.  His ability to be a team player has been significantly instrumental in the efficient and effective way our home has been completed.

Sincerely,
R.L. Scott

To Whom It May Concern:

I met Arnaldo in late January and have a great deal of respect for him and the job he performs.  My new home had a punch list a mile long and after numerous other incompetent individuals came and went, I was finally placed in his hands.  He has shown great knowledge and skill in numerous facets of the construction industry and has supervised his staff well to insure that the jobs were performed timely and with proper attention to detail.  He believes in the work ethic of doing a job right the first time and taking care of the customer, a belief that is hard to find in this day’s industry.
Arnaldo has the instinct and drive to be a success at whatever career he undertakes and I was excited to learn of his desire to return to school.  He will be an asset to his field.  Thank you for the opportunity to compose this letter on his behalf.

D. Fuchs
Homeowner


To Whom It May Concern:

I want to take this opportunity to write a letter of recommendation for Arnaldo R. Pantaleon.  Arnaldo has been doing punch out on our home for the last six weeks.  He has been very efficient in taking care of all the issues that Toll Brother had had him address.  Additionally, he presents himself in a very professional manner with the ability to correct various problems.
His ability and understanding has made out new home purchase a very pleasant experience.

Sincerely,

S. Rand


To Whom It May Concern:

We bought a Toll Brothers home in Parkland, Florida less than a year ago and it has been a nightmare to say the least.  We closed with a 27-page punch-list and there was NO customer service until I met Arnaldo Pantaleon.  Mr. Pantaleon started out performing the punch out tasks assigned to him, but as his talents quickly became obvious, he was promoted to Field Supervisor responsible for the entire punch out crew here in Fox Ridge community.
Every item on the list that Mr. Pantaleon handled was done with extreme care.   Hos attention to detail and his awareness of customer satisfaction is outstanding.  He is understanding and compassionate with costumers, but more importantly, backs that up with true talent.  He has the ability to perform an array of construction and finishing work and does it well.  If it weren’t for Mr. Pantaleon, I can honestly say that my lawyer would have been involved a long time ago to deal with the builder.
I have never met, in my dealings with Toll Brothers and Eagle Construction, a more professional individual than Mr. Pantaleon.  He believes in doing the job right in the first place.  It’s unfortunate that there is only ONE of him around as my life would have been a lot less stressful this year if I could have had him do the work on my home exclusively.

Sincerely,

A.M. Wolochatiuk


To Whom It May Concern:

It is my feeling that Arnaldo R. Pantaleon is an asset to his business.  He exhibits expertise in his field and professionalism along with a “get the job done and get it done right” attitude.  Unlike many subcontractors that we’ve seen come and go that could have cared less, Mr. Pantaleon take pride in his work.
Our new Toll Brothers home has had countless problems since our move in date.  Of all the subcontractors to help with repairs and issues, I can honestly say that Mr. Pantaleon has been one of the very few that not only knows what he is doing but the only individual who has expressed a true interest to resolve the problems.  Also, he’s taken initiative to do some other minor things that he deemed necessary. And he is always most polite!  Wherever his profession leads him, Mr. Pantaleon will most certainly be a fine addition.

Sincerely,

M. Ferraro


To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is in reference to Mr. Arnaldo R. Pantaleon.  I am the City of Parkland Structural Inspector and have worked closely with Mr. Pantaleon through our liaison with Toll Brothers, Inc.  Toll has used the services of Mr. Pantaleon through his current employer, Eagle Construction, to not only perform but also oversee all punch-out related activities required through their building operations.
I have witnessed first hand, the level of quality that Mr. Pantaleon can provide.  There have been numerous occasions where I have entrusted him to complete inspection requirements in all building phases that were necessary for passing code.  I can honestly say that had Mr. Pantaleon not been on-site in several instances, building code requirements would not have met.
It is a pleasure working with an individual such as Mr. Pantaleon, as his belief in “doing things right the first time” is congruent with ours here at the City of Parkland.
I do not hesitate to recommend Mr. Pantaleon for any or all building or construction related jobs.

Sincerely,

P. Wise

To Whom It May Concern:

Mr. Arnaldo Pantaleon has been working with us at Toll Brothers, Inc. for almost one year in the capacity of Field Supervisor for Eagle Construction Co., our subcontractor for punch out and other construction related jobs. Toll has used the services of Mr. Pantaleon to not only perform punch out activities but also supervise the entire crew on all our construction sales in Broward County.  This would include The Preserve in Boca Raton, Heron Bay in Coral Springs, and Fox Ridge in Parkland.

I have witnessed first hand the level of quality that Mr. Pantaleon can provide.  There have been numerous occasions where I have entrusted him to complete inspection requirements in all building phases that were necessary for passing building codes.  This would often entail liaising with the appropriate city inspectors and ensuring that the jobs are completed in a timely and efficient manner.

Also, as Toll was in the process of reorganizing, we entrusted the help of Mr. Pantaleon and hired him temporarily as our Assistant Construction Manager.  He worked in this capacity for 9 weeks as well as managing his own responsibilities through Eagle Construction.  This involved scheduling and dealing with all the subcontractors, maintaining customer service on all properties, and keeping up to date on all paperwork involved for our head office.

It is a pleasure working with Arnaldo Pantaleon and I do not hesitate to recommend him for any position in the construction industry.  His belief in “doing things right the first time” are congruent with ours at Toll Brothers.

Sincerely,

Jim Nissen
Construction Manager
Toll Brothers, Inc.

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to take this opportunity to write a letter of recommendation for Arnaldo R. Pantaleon.  I am a resident of Doral Isles (a Lennar community) in Miami, FL.  Arnaldo has been extremely instrumental in making sure that our long punch list was completed in a professional and timely manner.  We are very pleased with our finished home, but above all, we were immensely impressed with Arnaldo’s performance and drive to get the jobs done not only in time, but also in the most efficient way.

I highly recommend Arnaldo for any possible services needed in home construction.  I would definitely use his services again in the future.

Sincerely,

Alvaro A. Acosta

Dear Arnaldo,

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for taking the necessary actions to insure the completion of our considerable punch list.  As you know, I am a Project Manager in the construction industry, and to say the least, it was difficult watching my home go together not having a hand in it.

There were many outstanding issues, that had my wife and I very concerned.  We did not think that they would be completed in time.  However, I was indeed impressed with your performance and communication skills used in completing my requested tasks.

Next year, I will be starting a company that may have a place for someone with your qualifications.  It will involve Construction Management, Inspections and Consulting work.  Your ability to get things done could be a considerable asset to me.

Again, thanks for getting the job done and permitting us to close on time.

P.S. My neighbor spoke highly of you too!

Regards,

Pete Becker

To Whom It May Concern:

Arnaldo Pantaleon worked under me as an Assistant Superintendent for one year on building a five-story mid-rise with cable construction.  He was responsible from the framing stage through walk-through to acceptance.  The walk-through and acceptance of the seventy units were completed in three weeks.  Arnaldo also gained additional knowledge by watching other aspects of construction as the construction progressed on the building.

Arnaldo related well with others and we had a very good working relationship.  His greatest attribute was the way he related to the homeowners.  The homeowners were very comfortable with him.  They were very satisfied with the care with which he finished their homes.

I feel very comfortable recommending Arnaldo for a position comparable to the position he held for me.

Sincerely,

Herbert S. Taylor
Project Manager
Lennar Homes, Inc.

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to take a moment to write a letter of recommendation for Arnaldo R. Pantaleon.  Arnaldo was my employee for two years.  He started out as a skilled carpenter and within a couple of weeks he was promoted to head foreman, and a few weeks after that, to area manger for construction communities in Broward County.  It only took those few weeks to realize that Arnaldo possessed the knowledge and skills that any construction company would need in order to succeed.  Aside from his many tasks, Arnaldo would take it upon himself to find more contracts in the Broward area, and as a result, expanding horizons for my company.

It was a pleasure to have Arnaldo work for me.  I would not hesitate in recommending him for any position in the construction industry.

Sincerely,
Daniel Kelly
President
Eagle Construction Company
of South Florida, Inc.

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is ton confirm that Arnaldo R. Pantaleon has been working for Lennar Homes for the past two and a half years as an Assistant Superintendent.  During this time he has provided us with exceptional work and outstanding service.  He has gone beyond the call of duty in accomplishing his work related responsibilities.

I would recommend Arnaldo for any position in the construction industry as well as giving him the recommendation needed in order to obtain a General Contractor’s license.

Sincerely,

Phil Serrate
Director of Construction
Lennar Homes, Inc.

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is to confirm the integrity, ability and character of Arnaldo Pantaleon.  Arnaldo took over our company’s construction remodel in Olde Naples, Florida in the fall of 2007.  As I am sure you are aware, it can be difficult these days to find reliable, punctual and hard working contractors who will simply “do what they say they will do”.  Arnaldo is competent, highly organized and punctual.  Further, he leaves no stone unturned, pays great attention to detail and was on the same page with our company’s desire for “Residential” quality workmanship.  He understands the construction trade and was extremely helpful with the permitting process.  He was a lifesaver for our company.

We are confident in making this referral for him as we have already decided to retain his services for our construction needs in the future.

Sincerely,
Marcus Daniel
President
Bidwell Cigar, Inc. a
Wyoming Corporation

To Whom It May Concern:

It is our pleasure to provide you with a character reference for Nardi Pantaleon.  We have had the gratification of working with Nardi for approximately one year and he has demonstrated throughout this time, complete professionalism and courteousness with subcontractors such as ourselves.  We find his willingness to address any issues involving completing the tasks at hand and his open communication, paramount.

Sincerely,

Juan Lopez
President

To Whom It May Concern:

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is a character reference for Arnaldo Pantaleon.  Arnaldo was the Project Manager for a multi-family resident project called the Villas of Venezia, located within the City limits of Fort Myers.  I have worked with Mr. Pantaleon inspecting the Fire Safety systems for multiple buildings in this facility.  I found him to be a pleasant, responsible, conscientious man who took care of issues, big or small; the first time they were presented.

Sincerely,

Robert Hinson
Fire Safety Inspector

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter of recommendation for Arnaldo Pantaleon as our Project Manager for Mediterranean Homes of Naples, LLC from April 3, 2006 thru March 19, 2007.  During his time with us, Arnaldo always displayed a positive attitude and acted in a professional manner with our employees and subcontractors.  His responsibilities included managing out multifamily construction project in Ft. Myers from foundation to final building.

Sincerely,
