By July 10, 2019 September 25th, 2019 News, Blog, Press

Though Diamond Custom Homes’ brand was introduced in 2010, its local history spans nearly 30 years, a feat requiring finesse in finicky Florida markets. Led by industry veteran Michael Diamond, the award-winning firm has crafted homes of distinction in some of the Gulf Coast’s best-known communities from Marco Island to Sarasota.

Diamond, who possesses both Florida Contractor and Florida Real Estate Broker licenses as well as a bachelor’s degree from Colgate University, strives to ensure the highest quality outcomes for every client. Under his leadership, Diamond Custom Homes is consistently recognized for quality craftsmanship and the creativity of its custom designs. Diamond’s comprehensive experience, enduring relationships and valuable connections with top architects, designers and subcontractors guarantees an unforgettable experience for clients building or renovating luxury homes.

Not one to brag, Diamond credits his company’s longevity, continued growth and expansion on a philosophy of building together. “It takes trust, willing collaboration, mutual understanding, professional skill, profound experience, and complete dedication to achieve optimal results for our clients,” he explains. “Our team shares a common belief in open, candid communication with the people we build for and with each other. This transparency produces tangible benefits in every project and every relationship we’ve established.”

As Diamond leads his team through its second decade, the company’s geographic footprint is expanding with several high-profile projects elevating its already-substantial portfolio. Its lengthy market tenure makes it well equipped to master the intricate components of coastal construction.

The only thing growing faster than Diamond and his business are the compliments both continue to receive. One client recently stated, “I am more than satisfied with the workmanship and follow-up. I have and will continue to recommend Diamond Custom Homes. You just like to do business with Mike Diamond!”

Advice to Business Leaders:
Embrace the value of trust. Leadership used to be about leaders: powerful people at the top of their organizations. Then things changed. The business world went from vertical to horizontal. And virtual. Today’s leaders can no longer rely on power; instead, they should focus on building trust throughout their entire constituency: employees, clients, subcontractors and others.
