After much searching, we finally purchased a piece of land and began our search for a contractor to build our dream home. After meeting with 3 other contractors, we were introduced to Jay Culley and were sold on using him to build our home. His knowledge of construction, references and the subs he used confirmed we had selected the right contractor.

Our house was one of a kind and we knew this would be a unique project since we were building an ICF home. We wanted quality and energy efficiency at a very high level. We also wanted a contractor that would allow us do some of the work ourselves. Jay was very helpful in guiding us throughout the construction process and was on sight many times to provide cost saving options as we progressed with our custom built home.

We had numerous meetings to discuss our concepts, options, ideas, requests, and the planning before we began construction which was the key to taking the stress out of the project and insuring we got exactly what we wanted. Honestly, the final product speaks for itself. We are now living in a great home with great quality and we absolutely love our home.

If you want a beautiful ICF home, I would recommend Jay and Landmark homes.

Thank you for your diligent efforts in the construction of our beautiful new home. I know it was a difficult project, shoe-horning a large quality home on a small and constrained lot; and you helped make things go smoothly.  We are very pleased with the end product.
Best Wishes Always!

We bought a large 20 acres home and wanted a small but very unique house with lots of custom trim and beautiful features. We wanted a craftsman style home with a HUGE carport. We interviewed several builders and selected Jay and we are glad we did. We went with a builder with a great reputation and the results showed. We have a beautiful house and are very happy with the price and quality.

If you want a builder you can trust then Landmark is the company. I would build with them again and recommend them.

As a high end realtor in Tampa, I had seen some really nice homes and we kind of knew what we wanted. We had a fairly large home (over4,000 sq ft) and we really wanted builder that could make it a real showpiece. From the very first meeting, riding around looking at homes and discuss our home I was put at ease. Jay is an experienced and knowledgeable builder, and his subcontract trades are excellent. The interior design help was incredible and second to none. Michelle was able to give us great advice and recommendations and really put our mind at ease with all of the details of a high end luxury custom interior. I cannot say enough about Jay and his team.

Thank you much,

Given I am a retired builder myself; I knew this could be a difficult build. We were building a really nice home in Centerville Conservation Community, and high expectations of quality were a given. We chose someone we could work with and who we knew could meet our expectations. Landmark Homes was a choice we were confident about and pleased with. If you are building a large complex custom home, choose a builder with the experiences and team to get the job done on time and meet your expectations.

If we were to build again in the Tallahassee area, we would not hesitate to hire him again.

Having put off building our home while my husband was in Iraq, we were really feeling the pressure to get started quickly. However, after almost six months of interviewing builders and looking at what they called great quality, we were back at square one. My husband had been in the trades and both of our families are involved in construction to this day so we knew we would be a bit tough on the contractor. This was compounded by the fact we are living in a home on our 20 acre site and would remain there through the build.

Honestly, within an hour of sitting down with Jay I knew he was our builder. He was so open with information, sharing prices and cost and was simply more knowledgably or a much better communicator that any builder we had met. Honestly our only concern was could we afford to use him, once he realized we were out in the country in Jackson County. We wanted a fairly large (over 5,000 sq ft), 2 story, brick home, huge kitchen and large back porch, ETC ...

From helping us with financing, color selection and the whole process his team was great. His suggestions were great and even in Marianna he does not hesitate to come look at something if need be or address any concerns. Simply put the house has exceeded our expectations and we are very happy.

In summary, we recommendation that anyone looking to build use Jay and his whole team and have recommended him to our friends. Jay and his team are experienced, knowledgeable, honest, and will go the extra mile for you here in Jackson County.

We inherited some money and knew this would be our one build and our last home. As such, we were not in a rush and spent a year looking at about 6-8 highly recommended builders. We were impressed by Landmark's quality, but we were concerned about their low price.

My husband is a trade subcontractor, and so we did not mind paying more for openly admitted high expectations of quality. Landmark honestly exceeded our expectations. Not only is Jay a great builder, but he and his whole team are great people.

Six bathroom, 200 page design notebook with almost 7000 square feet – we knew we had a complex build. What I learned throughout the process is clearly that it is not about the contractor but the team. The contractor/ owner, his field supervisor, his interior designer, and the trade subcontractors were incredible. After the build, I would tell you that all of Landmarks team members are not just experienced in their craft, but they are great people. Without question, I would recommend the contractor and his team as a custom home builder and a person that honestly has your family's best interest at heart.

Being out in the country on 10 acres in Jackson County, we did not have a list of builders lining up that wanted to drive out to our site and build. We met Jay at the home show and he was not only willing to build out where we were, but he was excited about our project. I have since found out he has built multiple homes in Jackson County not just our home out of Sneads.

We were impressed by their organization, professionalism and ability to build out in the country without any hitches. Starting with the floor plan, the material selections, interior design and color selection they helped us all the way through the process. This organized structure and help really took the stress out of the building process. In the end we have a gorgeous home from a builder that honest took a genuine concern in our home. I highly recommend Landmark's team as Jackson County's premiere custom home builder.

We owned some family land and had wanted to build for years. Jay took a personal interest in building our home. From helping us with financing, to the floor plan selection, and working with his interior designer, Jay and his team did it all and did it exceptional well. He is honest, always in our camp, and if there are ever any issues they fix them and fix them correctly. The final product speaks for itself. We did not see any way Jay could meet all of our high expectations, since we had a more limited budget. In the end our expectation were exceeded and we are so happy with the end product. Should I build another custom home, he is the only builder I would consider.

We owned a mobile home and a house on the south side of town on some family land. We wanted to replace the mobile home with a site built home. Our problem was that my daughter and her family needed quite a bit of space but only had a budget of less than $150,000 budget. Jay was able to us into a fairly large home and still keep us in our budget. We have a beautiful home, one that is energy efficient and build to last. He was able to help us with financing, the floor plan, had an and excellent interior designer, a design center and was a pleasure to work with. Jay still keep in touch with us and is a builder that honestly had it client interest at heart. Want a builder you can trust and a great home select the best builder. He made the experience a pleasurable one and we would use him again.

Francis P

We owned a mobile home on the south side of town and wanted to replace it with a site built home. Our problem was that we still wanted a lot of space (2,000 sq ft) but only had a modest $135,000 budget. We met Jay and his wife at the home show and boy we were glad we did. He helped us with the floor plan, let s meet with an interior designer at his design center and build us a great home. In the end the quality was great and he exceeded our expectations. Great builder, someone how really cares about your project and did an amazing job.

Gloria P

When my wife and I build we made it easy on ourselves. We selected a great builder with a solid reputation, plenty of experience and someone we could trust. We now have a well-built energy efficient home. We had numerous meetings to discuss our concepts, options, ideas, requests, and the planning before we got started which was the key to taking the stress out of the project and insuring we got exactly what we expected. From the interior decorator the field supervisor everybody pitched in to make it a great experience. I recommend them to all my friends. Our building process was a pleasurable one and the final product speaks for itself.

We had a mobile home on a few acres that I wanted to replace with an identical size site built home out highway 90 near Jefferson County. Our project was a fairly simple home but we did have limited funds. After speaking with over 10 builders, we were surprised to find that Jay was not only the only one interested in our project but he was quite honestly excited about helping us. He was able to work within our budget yet he was known for quality. We were very happy with the way the home turned out and quite honestly It exceeded our expectations. If you want a great builder and a fair price, then give Landmark a call they will do a great job for you. If I add on or have a friend build you will be they would be the only one, I would recommend.

EJ M

We had a mobile home on two acres we wanted to replace with a really nice, large brick home. We wanted a lot of nice trim, wood floors, cherry cabinets, granite tops and a very energy efficient home. After a lot of research, we went with Icynene spray foam insulation, a Rinnai water heater and all of the energy features.

We knew we would be live on site in the mobile home during the build and since I am an engineer and a I am a real stickler for quality and details it would be tough on the builder. Right off the bat we know we needed to start with a builder with a great name and reputation to avoid having any issues. We are glad we chose Jay, we got a great home, still have a great relationship with our builder and we remain in touch to this day. Jay and his team did a great job with the helping us along the way in color selection and plan selection to actually building our home. I always recommend him to anyone who is thinking about building.

We were moving from across town and had some serious time constraints on our build. Though we only needed 2,000 square feet built on a lot that we already owned, we needed also to be able to move in quick since we needed to get out of our other place. Honestly, it was amazing to see how quickly the home went up and they did not sacrifice quality in fact they exceeded our expectations. If you want a builder you can trust, someone that has your best interest at heart then consider Landmark Fine Homes. Honest, fair and simply the best builder in the area. If he tells you something and you know that you can believe him and it will get done. We recommend Landmark if you are considered building and that you give Jay a call.

Barbara B

We were an out of town, wanted to have a home built for my mom and had some serious time constraints on our building project. Though we only needed 2,000 square feet built on a lot that we already owned, we needed also to be able to move in the home in 75 days. We took a blind leap of faith and gave Jay a $10,000 cash deposit, and 75 days later we were in our new home. Honestly, it was amazing how organized Jay was that they were able to pull it off and not sacrifice quality. They first broke the job down into over 100 activities which were scheduled out immediately over 2 months. All of the subcontract trades were given the scheduled and showed up on time and worked hard, but never considered sacrificing quality. If you want a builder who looks you in the eye and tells you something and you know that you can believe him, give Jay a call.

If we were to build again in the Tallahassee area, we would not hesitate to hire him again.

Wanda S

We wanted a special house one our family land down in Wakulla. Something that would fit on a lot of land and other nice homes. We wanted a craftsman style with lots of space. So we went with a great builder with a great reputation and the results showed. We have a great house and we are still happy with it.

If you want a build you can trust then Landmark is the company. I recommend them to all my friends.
