Bob, Brian & Lori,
Ruth and I wanted to thank you guys for the tremendous job you did in building our new house. We both have been raving about Dolphin Homes to everyone that asks who built our house, and even to those that don’t ask. Your professionalism and honesty have been greatly appreciated by us throughout this process and your advice and suggestions have made a big difference in the way our house turned out. I remember the cold winter day that Bob met me in the shell of our old storm-ruined house and I knew that Bob Cavaliere was right when he said that Bob is the guy you want building your new house. We also can’t thank you enough for suggesting that we use Dario as our architect, since his design has been admired by everyone who has been to our house.
I know Bob won’t miss my 7:00 am phone calls, or Lori won’t miss my never ending emails, or Brian won’t miss my text messages and phone calls, but in the end I am grateful for your patience and all the help you gave us along the way. If you ever need a reference for any future clients we will be more than happy to them how much we think of Dolphin Homes.
Thanks again for building our dream home and please stop by for a beer this summer when you’re in the area.

We want to thank you for building us such a beautiful home. All our neighbors continue to comment on how great the house looks and the high quality work put into building the house. Throughout the building process, we felt as if you treated our house as if you were building your own. You made yourself available when we had questions and were always willing to provide great ideas and advice.
You subcontractors Dario (architect), Tony, (tiler), Rick (electrical), Harold (Heating & Plumbing) share your commitment to quality work and left the house spotless every day. For example, Keith from QK Carpentry reworked a unit when I told him it was not necessary. Brian who oversaw the job ensured that things were always running well. Lori keeps everyone on schedule and kept us on top of the selections we needed to make.
We were very nervous when we started the process but Dolphin made building a new home practically stress free. We would recommend Dolphin home to anyone considering building a new home at the Jersey Shore. Thank you again!

When our home was destroyed by the storm we considered selling our property as is, the thought of rebuilding , and hearing stories about being taken advantage by less than honest home builders seemed just to be to stressful at this point in our lives. However a new home was being built next to ours by Dolphin Homes, our neighbor was telling us how concerned this builder was for all their needs. In watching what Dolphin Homes was doing my wife and I realized that if we were going to take this chance it should be with Dolphin Homes. I contacted the owner and was assured by him that they would walk us thru this experience with OUR best interest in mind. We agreed and seven months later we had a home in Manasquan that was way beyond our expectations, Dolphin Homes has the most remarkable young woman in their office controlling every step of what we had to do and when. This young woman Lori is so knowledgeable that when you talk to her you know she is not a second or third person , but is at the helm of what it takes to build a wonderful home with so little stress. Obviously the principals of Dolphin homes realize what it takes to be the change we all need to see in the contracting industry.

Teresa and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for building as such beautiful home. During our first meeting it was obvious that you and your staff were all professional, experienced and very knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the building process. As you can imagine we will quite nervous going into this project, however you walked us through each step in an organized and concise manner, making the entire experience much easier than we anticipate. Lori was always cheerful and able to solve almost any issue that came up, getting back to us quickly with the answers we needed each time we called. Throughout the building process you were always in communication with us and were easy to talk with. As several unforeseen issues arose, you handled them correctly, quickly, efficiently and most importantly to the satisfaction of all. You had unique and inspiring design ideas, specific to each phase on how to make our home more functional while at the same time always listened to our needs, ideas and thoughts, ever mindful of the cost implications. Your meticulous attention to detail is truly amazing and it shows in our home.
Dolphin delivered to us a spectacular and extremely well-built, home which turned out more beautiful and practical than we had originally designed. From concept to architectural plans to demolition of our old house and throughout the building process you made it an enjoyable journey which culminated the home of our dreams, and for that we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Tony and I want to express our appreciation and thanks for the wonderful job you did on our new home. Everything proceeded so quickly and efficiently and we could not believe how soon we were able to move into our home.
The craftsmen that work with you are the best. This included the carpenter, Matt, the tile man, Tony, the painter, Mike, your brother, Brian and all others who were involved with the building. Lori, your assistant, is another fine asset to your company. She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
The vendors that you suggested helped us immediately. They know your work standards and enjoy helping your customers.
Tony and I enjoyed watching the house proceed, and miss seeing what is involved in building a house. I want to buy more property and have you build us another home. We have had a large number of people who have seen the house and all notice the extras and beautiful work that is evident from top to bottom.
Thank you for making this whole process into a great experience.
Everyone knows that moving can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. So when my wife Lorrie and I decided to build a home we knew that finding the right builder would be critical to our success and happiness. Thanks to Robert Martin of Dolphin Homes our experience was overwhelming pleasant. From start to finish, Dolphin Homes provided a service that can’t be matched.
From our initial meeting, Mr. Martin took great time to thoroughly describe the building process, design options, and cost. Once our contract was signed we received a schedule outlining each stage of the process, anticipated dates of completion and a healthy dose of literature to help guide our choice in building materials.
I cannot say enough about each of the subcontractors, their the level of professionalism, willingness to discuss and answer questions, and most importantly their commitment to their trade and our home. The craftsmanship and dedication to detail was like nothing I ever expected.
For anyone interested in building their own home, I would look no further than to Dolphin Homes. The companies’ years of experience, exemplary work product, and unwavering dedication to their customers made what could be a stressful event a pleasurable experience.
Thank you Robert and your staff for exceeding our expectations and building us the house of our dreams.

We can't begin to thank Dolphin Homes for our amazing house!
From the first time we met Bob, Lori and Brian, we knew this is who we wanted to build our house. Never once did we feel overwhelmed by the process. Any questions or concerns were answered immediately by any one or all 3 of them.
Our house was in the process of being built when Hurricane Sandy hit. Despite the entire shore region in disarray. Dolphin kept the build moving forward by deftly managing all the contractors, inspectors and utility companies and delivered our house in a timely manner.
Their guidance on materials, design elements and, moreover, their flexibility to accommodate our changes, delivered us the home we wanted without a single reservation.
We highly recommend Dolphin Homes and their amazing staff and contractors.

We can’t say enough about what a positive experience it was to design and build our home with Dolphin Homes. From start to finish, there were no surprises, only knowledge, professionalism, and support. Thanks to Dolphin Homes, the process of designing and building our custom home was an exciting and stress-free experience.
In addition to being such a pleasure to work with, Dolphin Homes built us the BEST quality home. Seven months after moving in, Hurricane Sandy destroyed much of our neighborhood. Our home had no damage or flooding whatsoever. As we watched our neighbors kayaking down the street the next day, we were so thankful that our family was safe inside our new home.
Thank you Dolphin Homes!

Dolphin Homes and their wonderful staff were highly recommended by a former customer whom we met on the beach for the first time in July 2011. From "Day 1" Bob Martin and Lori Costello were personable and totally committed to the building timeline of our shore home.
If our wish today was to build another home, Dolphin Homes would definitely be our first choice again. This is why we are always proud to show off the craftsmanship of our custom built home with all the high quality standard finishes and extra features offered by them. We are always happy to recommend Dolphin Homes to friends and acquaintances on and off the beach.

Dear Dolphin Homes,
We want to thank you for the great help that you have been throughout the entire process of building our new home.
Losing our original shore house to Super Storm Sandy was devastating. However, we were fortunate to have contacted your company and meet with you just five weeks after the storm. You took the time during a series of meetings to answer all of our questions and address our concerns in a thorough manner.
The house is more beautiful than we could have imagined.
Your entire staff was extremely helpful too. Both Brian and Lori are huge assets to your company. Everyone was great and we are very appreciative.
We will recommend Dolphin to anyone we come across that is interested in building a new home. We wish you many more years of success.

Hello Lori, Bob and the gang,
It has been over six years since you completed the construction project of our home in Point Pleasant Beach. We went from a cozy little ranch house to a beautiful 5 bed, 3 bath beach colonial.
You guys were fantastic to work with. This was not the first house we had built, but the first by you. The project started on time and incredibly finished on time. I actually enjoyed the entire experience, from conception to completion.
As you know we were so happy that we referred one of our patients to you. Their home was built by you as well.
Our family and many, many of our friends and guests have enjoyed the house. I would not hesitate to recommend you and the Dolphin team to anyone.

Dear Bob and Lori,
We want to thank you very much for building us our dream house beach home! From our initial meeting with Bob to our move in day, you, Brian, and Lori were a pleasure to work with.
Your subs were all courteous and professional and their work is first class workmanship on every detail! Your knowledge in building codes, products, and process were impressive.
We thank you
All the best,
Bob and Rebecca Brown
Dear Dolphin Family,
Baret and I wanted to thank you for working with us the last year on building our home. We used to look through the Homes and Land magazines and dream about buying a house at the beach…or, even better, building one. We used to see your ad all the time and Baret would say “One day, Dolphin is going to build my home.” Who could have guessed it?
We met with several builders and modular companies and felt like we had the best vibe with your team from the beginning. I am sure the connection with Baret and Brian helped too. We would have never been able to navigate building in this town without all your connections.
Lori was great to work with. She is so service oriented and knowledgeable. Brian was so helpful with all of our questions and always got right back to us. Bob’s experience and relationships with the town helped so much.
The product is amazing. I love pulling up to our house every day and walking inside is even better. We received so many compliments on the house this summer from people walking by to the beach. Neighbors who witnessed the project also have raved about the quality job. And, seeing the other new homes go up, I am so proud to be in THIS one.
Thank you for creating the place where we will have so many memories for so many years!!!
