We were very pleased with our sales person who answered our questions very quickly. We were unable to come for a walk thru so it was virtual and we saw and had explained everything as if we were there. When we arrived 3 months later we received a refresher course. We needed no repairs or touch ups. We are very pleased.

Excellent product and very responsive customer care from Lennar. Unfortunately, the HOA Management by Icon hasn’t met the standard set by the Lennar team.

My experience with Lennar has been a positive one. Home completed ahead of schedule. Only issue I had was anticipated early close date went beyond mortgage lock expiration but Lennar picked up fee for that.

House was suppose to be move in ready. They told us any issues would be addressed. (Not really). The virus only slowed things down more. It started several months before.

We love the space, and location the agent was great the guys that we have worked with are super helpful....but cheap paint, cheap fixtures, the granite turns dark green to black has chips in it. Faucets spit, toilets don’t flush properly, paintwork on trim peeling.

star-rating Better than most......

  • Michael J.

Lennar quality of materials and workmanship seems better than most in SWFL, but does not come up to the overall craftsmanship and attention to detail that we are accustomed to in MN. Responsiveness to issues has been excellent! “In-house” Lennar sales staff are quick to state completion dates for amenities that are inconsistent with overall construction schedules.

We love our new home & it is great for the price oaid; however, we had lots of issues due to poor workmanship by subcontractors & everything being so rushed. We were also lied to about a few issues. Make sure anything promises that is important to you (green space behind home, etc.) is in writing, not just shown to you on a map.

Clearly lennar is trying to crank out as many homes as possible as quickly as possible. These homes are budget built with premium price tags

star-rating The quality of the work on the Home

  • Stephen M.

  • December 08, 2020

Once we purchased the Home, you are no longer important. Make sure that the home they way it is supposed to be because once you move in you are on your own. You can complain as much as you want there is no urgency in fixing anything. We moved in to the Home end of June and now it is December the items we complained about prior to the move in have yet to be fixed. Get everything in writing when you purchase the Home since the Sales guy from Lennar promises a lot but delivers very little ... More

1. Lennar Mortgage - easy to deal with, competent mortgage officer. 2. Lennar Title - titled our unit to 3 other buyers who actually purchased other units. Seems someone didn't change the unit number when preparing the titles. When we went to the tax collector's office we found out about the title issue. This prevented us from applying for our homestead exemption until it was corrected. Luckily the Lennar Title was fixed just in time. 3. Lennar sold our mortgage within 3 weeks of moving in. Our mortgage included a buy down, which was an incentive, so we would use Lennar mortgage. The buy down is for 3 years and allows use to pay a lower monthly payment with the remainder paid by Lennar. Seems no one told the company that purchased the mortgage. I sent the first payment as directed to the new Mortgage company only to get an invoice for the entire monthly mortgage payment. It took me having to go through several people and emailing of documents to prove there was a buy down. Luckily that was completed and the buy down payment was accepted just before the payment would have been late. 4. We have a small cat that we lost one night in the unit. We could hear her meow but could not find her. Finally I looked under the cabinets in the kitchen and she had gotten through a space between the kickboard and bottom of the cabinets. There was anywhere between a two and five inch gab all across the cabinets and kickboards around the kitchen, kitchen island and both bathrooms. The cabinet installer came out and put in new kickboards. The issue was solved timely. 5. Construction of the unit- very poor. It seems the construction workers are paid by the job and they rush through without really taking care that the job is done correctly. We had paint and glue on the title floors, which we were able to scrape up. That was not a big deal. The floor tiles had and some still have writing where measures were taken. Not a big deal comes up with four of nine. The electrical outlets in the second bathroom did not work. Seems the electrician crossed the wires. Was repaired timely. There was a chip in the tub from, it appears tile falling on it. Was somewhat repaired, but acceptable. It seems that there was no final inspection performed once the work was completed. 5. Plumbing. Our unit is a first floor end unit, which is Lennar's biggest condo unit in Terrace Condos. Every time our upstairs neighbors flush their toilet it sounds like Niagara falls coming down the walls. We complained to the customer service agent for Lennar and at first we were told there was nothing that could be done. There is sound proofing in the ceilings and that should control the noise. It did not and I complained again to the customer service agent, who actually got upset and asked if I wanted a plumber to come out and open the ceiling so I could see the sound proofing and I accepted her offer, however that never happened. My wife ended up sending an email to Lennar's CEO and after that we received a call from the customer service agent who offered to have Rice insulation come out to check and make sure the PVC pipes were insulated. Rice came and found none of the four inch PVC pipes were insulated, which is a code violation, so I don't know how the walls were put on without it. Rice wrapped the pipes the best they could. The walls were sealed back up and we can still hear the water, which we again reported to Lennar's customer service agent, who again got upset and told my wife we should have purchased a fourth floor condo, which we would have done except for health issues. She further stated she wasn't going to do anything more concerning the water noise. Checking with a neighbor who has the same unit they have no water noise issues. My neighbor next door has no water noise issue. The neighbor above me has the exact same issue. Lennar's construction crew did not insulate our stacked end units, which is poor. ... More

Lennar rushed us to close at the end of the month but the house was not ready. I gave 1 star on craftmanship because we have so many issues. Tiles are not level, trim work is poor, lumps under carpet, upstairs floor uneven, just to name a few issues.
