A full-service construction firm created to provide a concierge experience for its clients, Nutter Custom Construction is creating beautiful and unique homes that reflect their owners’ distinct lifestyles. Founder T.J. Nutter, a native of Sarasota, utilizes his extensive background in residential building and construction management in order to facilitate an ideal process for his clientele. Not only are they privy to the spectacular and solid residences built by Nutter Custom Construction, but they also enjoy a client-centric approach that minimizes stress and inconvenience. Turnkey-ready homes are ideal for local residents, vacationers or homeowners relocating to the Sarasota region.
T.J. is a prevailing presence in his company; clients choose to work with Nutter Custom Construction because they desire the communication and hands-on presence that he provides. His well-developed business offers support and services that larger builders provide, but without the layers of personnel that often prevent clients from connecting directly with their builders.
“My business philosophy is that we’re approaching residential construction from a truly service-oriented aspect,” explains T.J. “Our clients aren’t limited to working with a site- or project manager; they have direct access to me.” T.J. notes that it’s imperative that he maintain ongoing involvement throughout the course of a build. “I’ve been a part of this community my entire life; my homes reflect my commitment to that.”
While Nutter Custom Construction handles significant remodeling projects, the firm is focused on environmentally-responsible custom new construction. The signature is quality; every home is built with an understanding of how to maximize efficiency, minimize the carbon footprint, and create a legacy for generations to come.
Communication is the foundation upon which successful partnerships are built. T.J. observes, “Our clients come to us because they want to achieve their idea of paradise. Our responsibility is to listen, to understand what they’re looking for, and to construct the home that represents their dream.”
Building a tangible representation of a vision includes significantly more than creating the structure itself. Each home adapts to its surroundings, maximizing light, views and existing flora. The firm also provides a comprehensive package that includes interior design services and a well-equipped design center, along with a concierge-level program that ensures each home is move-in ready. “We’ll go so far as to put silverware in the kitchen drawers,” states T.J. “Our promise to our clients is that we will offer the specific services they want and need.”
It’s a promise backed by experience and comprehensive industry knowledge. T.J. is highly qualified: a state-certified licensed home inspector, he is also licensed by the State of Florida as a building contractor and real estate sales associate. He is an accredited LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) professional as well. Years in the field have enabled him to build a trusted network of local subcontractors, whom he refers with each client’s specific needs in mind. “Everyone is different,” he observes. “I try to pair the right company with every individual, and I only refer people with whom I have completed business.”
T.J. is the 2011 Chairman of the Sarasota County General Contractor License Board, and is actively involved with the City of Sarasota Historical Preservation Board as well. He is a past president and lifetime director of the Manatee/Sarasota Homebuilders’ Association. “Giving my time to my industry is important, because building professionals play crucial roles in helping to sustain the beauty and character of our community,” he notes. “Through professional involvement, we also contribute to maintaining integrity within our industry.”
Nutter Custom Construction works with clients throughout Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties. The firm looks forward to setting new standards of quality and customer care.
