McGarvey Custom Homes’ Reputation For Quality On Display In Quail West

McGarvey Custom Homes’ Reputation For Quality On Display In Quail West

John McGarvey may have launched McGarvey Custom Homes in 1997, but he was actually in the construction business more than a decade prior.

In 1976, McGarvey founded an electrical contracting company in Philadelphia and was soon fulfilling federal, state and municipal contracts valued at up to $10 million. Eight years later he formed a construction company that specialized in corporate parks and corporate and industrial buildings. The company successfully completed four million square feet of finished product.

That success served as the genesis for McGarvey Development, which formed in 1985. It provided a full range of development and construction services to both commercial and residential customers.

1997 was a pivotal year for McGarvey, for he moved his company to Naples obtained his general contractor’s license, and proceeded to make his mark in the Southwest Florida commercial development and construction industry.

A short time later, McGarvey entered the lucrative luxury residential construction arena with the formation of McGarvey Custom Homes. To date, the company has designed and constructed well over 200 luxury residences. Many of them have been in Quail West.

“We started building in Quail West in 1998, not long after it was launched,” said McGarvey. “To date, we’ve built approximately 55 estate homes and 45 villa homes on the golf course, lake and preserve home sites located throughout the various neighborhoods.”

McGarvey believes Quail West is the perfect community for his company.

“Since the first home we built, McGarvey has led the luxury home builders with its Standard of Excellence,” he said. “That’s why Quail West is the perfect fit for us and our mission statement which reads: Creating exceptional environments for the discerning customer.”

According to McGarvey, his firm does have a niche in Quail West.

“Our target market is high-end homeowners that desire a custom-built home, in the $3 million-plus range, with unique features. You might say our passion for details sets us apart.”

McGarvey’s creative design and outstanding craftsmanship are evident in its two latest models, the Southampton, which just opened, and the Beechwood, which will be completed in about two months.
