We love hearing from our clients, and here are what they have to say in their own words.

We couldn't be more pleased that we trusted Terry and Jackie Carlson to build our dream home! From our initial meeting to the final walk-through, Carlson Construction far surpassed our expectations. Terry and Jackie were attentive to every detail, used the highest quality materials and craftsmen, and stayed on time and within budget. Thanks to them, we now have an exceptionally built custom home that we will enjoy for many years with our children.

We lived in Louisville, Kentucky, when we decided that Ocala, Florida was going to be the location of our new home. That meant building a 4,000 square foot pool home, front entrance, miles of fence, and a huge barn with an apartment... from 1,000 miles away! We trusted Terry and his staff from the first moment... his honesty and straightforward way of doing business certainly caught our attention. During the bidding process he made many suggestions that we valued later! In addition, when we were able to visit the site, he was always there paying attention to every detail. NO mistakes were made, no overruns. The result? A beautiful home we are proud of in every respect. Everyone asks us who built our home... and we proudly answer Terry Carlson!

Terry Carlson believes in affordable quality, innovative design and a practice of doing it right the first time. These beliefs led us to have him build our home that was customized to our satisfaction. A lot of features and appointments, which other builders consider options and upgrades, were standard, We helped in the design, arrangement, and size of the rooms, selection of cabinets, vanities, appliances, rugs, tile, paint colors, and many other details in the selection of our home. Terry used quality materials and experienced craftsmen to construct our home of lasting beauty and value. His expert and experienced supervision led our decision to recognize him as a leader in the field of custom home building.

We are a young couple who were inexperienced in constructing a new home. We needed a quality contractor who was very knowledgeable and trustworthy that would not take advantage of our innocence. Carlson Construction sensed our insecurities and cradled those fears until they transformed into an overwhelming confidence that building our dream home would be one of the most exciting ventures we would experience during our lives. They were patient, accommodating and resourceful. It was the utmost importance that a triangle of beautiful mature oak trees be saved during land clearing in order for our home to be snuggled within their nucleus; a task that Terry Carlson was determined to accomplish. After endless hours of measuring, staking, analyzing, re-measuring and re-staking the foundation layout, I was sure the burden we placed upon him was unachievable. The next day, Terry returned to the site with a steadfast resolution to save our aged natural landscape. Today, my husband and I enjoy many sunrises and sunsets on the porches of our country home nestled between our three enduring oak trees while giggling at our initial reservations of building our quaint paradise. Your dream can also come true with Carlson Construction and Realty at your side.
