My experience with the DiVosta team was very professional from the sales person to the field manager. We bought a quick move-in which was designed better than the choices I would have made. The field manager accommodated us to see the house during the construction. The house is very well made and the flow is perfect. Our house was evaluated by the field manager for any flaws several times prior to the closing. We were able to move into our house with no major issues noted. ... More

- Seasonal residents, your Field Manager is very important during construction as he will send pictures or address any concerns you have leading up to the celebration event. Assigned Field Manager was fantastic! - Closing Celebration and paperwork...if you are not a homesteader or have had a previous home, plan on being out there two weeks for any repairs discovered at celebration event , banking, etc. You won't feel so rushed. - Keep the phone numbers for vendors recorded on your cell phone if you are not a permanent resident and need to arrange repairs. Turnaround time for any repair issues, etc. has been very good. Home is on a street with "new builds" underway, construction site is exceptionally clean - impressive! ... More

While we haven’t actually moved in yet, we fell in love with the Cascadia Duplex when we saw the model. Everything moved quickly once we decided to purchase and we were quite satisfied with the communication from DiVosta throughout. We had the opportunity to see our house via Facetme during construction and our Field Manager sent us photos. When we actually saw the house for the first time last week we were delighted with every aspect. There was just one small problem (rust spots on the tub), but as soon as we reported it we had a response the next day and a follow up phone call to schedule repairs. Not only is the house fine quality, but the landscaping is already in place. Can’t wait to move in! ... More

Overall, it was a good experience and I'm happy with the quality of my home. Have had very little issues since closing almost 2 months ago. I love the community!!

This is our 3rd foray into new home contruction. I would say it was our best. From sales to construction manager all were responsive and helpful. Would not have changed anything to date with the process. I would however say that for my cascadia I would have preferred another option to add more cabinets or a cabinnetted pantry rather than just the shelves with the door. Given gourmet kitchens are what you market, that is an option I would have upgraded to. ... More

Be careful with upgrades, especially built-in kitchens. You're upgrading for appearance and think you're getting top quality but you're really not given a choice of appliances. Kitchenaid now has a recall on their cooktops and only one option exists that will fit. For us it's not an acceptable option and although money is offered to compensate there isn't anything that fits short of reconstructing the countertop and space below. Not enough time or money to cover that. We love IslandWalk and overall love our new home but the standard appliance packages may be the way to go. You'll have better choices to work with if something goes wrong. The management team is great. ... More

We love our Divosta home. Our lot is great. The construction aspect was great and our Project Manager was excellent. However, some of the items used to finish the inside we are not happy with. The tile work is awesome. Basic cabinets OK. Basic granite awful. Granite pitted and not smooth and when we questioned granite manufacturer they informed us that the granite came that way. Had I known that, I would have upgraded. The design center showed us a sample and the quality is not the same. Not a big lover of flat paint. Only other issue is mirrors. Both my mirrors have issues with the silver backing. Mirrors in horrible shape. Not sure what they're going to do about that. Pulte builds a solid home but they skimp on the finishing touches. ...

The home construction and quality was very good but landscape quality was anything but acceptable. Contacted Customer Service and they pushed of on the contract installation company. I contacted the installation company and after 4 weeks no corrective action. Following initial installation, irrigation system was not enabled and shrubs and lawn had no water for 2-3 weeks during daily 90 degree dry conditions. I was told the irrigation control unit was not activated following sod and shrub install. Sad. ... More

Overall the experience with DiVosta was a good one. The house looks great and we are very happy with it. There was a relatively significant issue with the lanai that was due to a complete lack of communication by DiVosta. It was resolved but DiVosta would not take responsibility for their actions at first. Eventually we settled on splitting the cost of the remediation. Otherwise, a very good experience. ... More

Buying and build process was mostly seamless until there were issues. Our project manager rarely got back to us and when we were finally able to do a walk through, the things he promised to have done by closing, were never address. The warranty person we deal with promises to return email the next day and we don’t hear from him for days until we reach back out. Our house also has no insulation in the attic above over half of the house. We expected issues but the follow through has been terrible as best. I’m sure things will get done but I wouldn’t hold my breath. ... More

We were fortunate to have a great site supervisor, Joe, who kept a watchful eye over every little detail of the build as we were in Michigan during the whole process. When we arrived for the walk thru we were blown away by the details that had all been taken care of. I feel the only negative of the whole experience was the short window we had to decide on all the details of our home and the few choices we were given. To plan your whole home in two hours was not an experience I felt that warranted the amount of money we were spending. ... More

Nicely built home in a great location. Our field manager has been very helpful. However, from the business end, DiVosta was very unpleasant to deal with. They refused to give us even one additional day to close on our home without charging extra, even though my wife had to work & we live far away. Our real estate broker who has been doing business in the area for 30 years, said that she had never encountered a firm less willing to accommodate their clients in all her experience & that she will never do business with them ever again. ...

The house was filthy and clearly was thrown together by unskilled laborers. This was particularly true with the tile work and grouting. Multiple chipped tiles were installed on the bathroom walls, floor tiles were laid unevenly, grouting is lumpy, inconsistent and varied in color. Managers admitted to us that no supervisor was on-site to oversee the grouting, and agreed that the poor quality grout job encompassed the entire house. When a crew was sent in to address the problems with the tile, they did not protect the tub so it is now scratched and gouged. After efforts to improve the grout, there was little to no improvement in the quality workmanship. The garage door has a large gap which allows bugs and other creatures to enter the garage. The front door does not create a seal allowing light to come in on the bottom corner. The garage entry door is misaligned preventing the lock to engage. The ceiling in the master bathroom bows upward. The sill under the lanai sliders looks as if chunks of cement are missing. We were and continue to be shocked and disappointed that a company that was so highly rated could allow anyone to walk into a brand new home that looked as bad as this. ... More
