Will be down in Florida to look around at Bradenton Communities. Know there are some builders who are better than others. Some used Chinese Drywall. Probably will be looking for resales, but not that familiar with all of the builders anymore. I know you get an inspection, but also know some builders have a better reputation than others.

Check out Johnson Homes: www.johnsonhomesinc.net

We spent alot of time with Dennis Johnson for several months last spring planning our dream home (a modified version is on his home page...sigh)...until our plans to move to FL fell apart. Very straight-up guy, he and his sons are on site daily, and his price per sq ft was more reasonable than a couple of other builders that we talked to. We spoke/visited with some of his previous customers and they had nothing but good things to say about him. He has several house plans on his website or will customize. He has a model home in Twin Rivers.

No, I am not a relative. My husband and I were just very comfortable in our dealings with him. When I sell my business so we can finally make our move, we will definitely be calling him again.

Another builder that we considered and appears to have a good reputation is Mark Cahill. Don't know quite as much about him, though. We toured one of his model homes a few years ago and again last year and liked what we saw.

I've had several people buy/build with Medallion Homes and all have been very pleased. They build in The Cascades in Bradenton.
