My wife and I had such a great experience with everyone we were in contact with, but wanted to give a special thank you to our salesman Scott, our design center lead Trisha, and our construction manager Nick.

Overall we are very pleased and glad we choose WestBay. We toured all the model homes and builders and Westbay definitely stood out in the crowd. Everyone was very welcoming, excited, and knew their products/options - something that was hard to find with the other companies. All steps of the process were relatively smooth with the exception of our closing coordinator. She didn't really handle any of our interactions well and didn't seem to remember past conversations. Our construction manager was great and our follow up items after closing have been handled promptly. ... More

Our construction manager and Quality Assurance Representative from Westbay has been top notch. We were notified immediately if materials or design changes occurred.

We couldn’t be more happy with our new home. WestBay thought of everything and put in the best materials. The sales team was great. The building team was great. However, I do have a few complaints. Regarding the design center, it was a mad house when we went down to the preview. And there weren’t enough scheduled times to do it. My wife and I were only able to make it to one preview due scheduling conflicts and the location. My recommendation would be to have a second design center on the north side of Tampa. Regarding workmanship, there were a few things that were done sloppy, like the back splash and some of the inside paint. Our building manager Steve went above and beyond to make sure we got everything fixed according to our satisfaction. But this involved time and effort that could have been avoided. Overall, WestBay is doing things the right way and I would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone looking to build a new house. My hope is that they stay this way and don’t expand too fast as a company. They should keep the company private (and not go public) so they can retain their customer centered values. ... More

Thank you for your kind words, Edward! We strive to provide the best experience possible from start to finish, and will look into expanding our weekly Design Studio Preview days.

The design center staff and selection process was excellent. The schedule affords the ability to visit multiple times, and the staff were excellent and never tired of us asking for assistance. The foreman wasn't very responsive and when provided independent inspection reports with items to correct, he wouldn't respond, even after multiple attempts at communication on our part, until we had a walk-thru and brought it up again, thus wasting my time and his. Some of the subs had very poor workmanship. Again, the foreman didn't correct the issues and instead we had to point out the items needing corrective action, multiple times, during our walk-thrus. The poor workmanship of the subs, and lack of attention to detail by the foreman caused our closing to be delayed. Post-closing the assistance and support with warranty items has been great. ...

A handful of design flaws a home of this price should not have our should be taken care of as courtesy. Example, some location of lights and garage door openers, the fact that flat paint is used in an over half a million dollar home is just embarrassing, some of the trades did a bad job...

The sales person (Brenna) was great and so was the construction manager (Dan). Once we moved in and had to deal with the warranty department things went down hill fast. To get the warranty guy (Dave) to do anything it usually takes following up several times and including his supervisor on emails. His supervisor has never followed up but he should know we have concerns as he has been copied on all the emails every. Promises are made and then zero communication until I finally have to follow up 1-2 additional times just to get them to do anything. Besides the design center and warranty department it has been pretty smooth but those two departments need some drastic improvements and would make me think twice about using or recommending West Bay. ...
