Jim and Joyce

Joyce and I, as well as our family would like to take this opportunity to thank you sincerely for all of your hard work, dedication and your amazing attention to detail that made our “dream home” a reality. It was an incredibly pleasant journey, in which Manuel kept us up to date on all processes. We would always meet Manuel on site to make sure that our every want was fulfilled, and if changes were needed it was without a problem. We have been in our home for over a year now and could not be happier with the construction, quality of products used and overall appearance. Every time we have visitors, they are in awe at the beautiful details, ceilings, walls, trim, floors, the list is endless. Manuel and all of the skilled tradesmen became like family during the building process. We would highly recommend Desousa Homes to anyone wanting to build a new home and or renovate their existing house.

Building a Custom Home with DeSousa Homes was a smooth, positive, and rewarding experience from the beginning to the end. Manuel DeSousa and his project team’s overall performance was simply amazing and exceptional as was the quality of their work and was only exceeded by Manuel’s passion, vision and commitment to ensure that he delivered to me and my family a first class quality built home! All of the sub-contractors were very professional and their commitment to meeting the time frames were simply outstanding. Manuel was on the job everyday and was always in control of the project. He and his team were always there to guide me and assist in any way – from the architectural design & modifications, choosing the exterior and interior finishes, the sound & alarm system, landscaping recommendations and so much more! By far, this custom built home has the up most quality and personal attention built to it. I would highly recommend DeSousa Homes to anyone who is looking for the best quality built home in Durham Region.
