I am writing to highly recommend Five Star Luxury Builders and Dave Knudson, General Contractor.
Five Star completed our 14 month extensive home renovation last month and we were very happy with the process and the end result. We obtained many bids for our project, but were impressed with Five Star and the fact that many of our neighbors had worked with Five Star and were very happy with their renovations. We doubled the square footage or our 1950’s Paradise Valley home and started with plans that were less than complete and had many problems. Dave and his team were extremely pro-active with some of the problems we discovered in our plans and issues that were uncovered in our older home and were able to quickly make suggestions, revisions and field changes.
We found the team of subcontractors that Five Star uses to be extremely professional, courteous and responsive and Dave’s ability to schedule tight timelines outstanding.
Dave and his Team were very accessible and responsive to all of our concerns and requests. Dave Knudson’s pro-active, hands-on approach saved us time and expense.
We are in the construction/real estate industry and have worked with many general and subcontractors in a professional capacity. In this competitive and busy market, service is what sets certain companies above the rest. Five Star Luxury Builders is a company that provides excellent service and follow-through and I have recommended them to my friends and family. I am confident that anyone who is facing the difficult decision of selecting a General Contractor will be very happy with the process, service, workmanship and follow-through that are provided by Five Star Luxury Builders.

I am writing this recommendation letter on behalf of Five Star Luxury Builders. They have just recently completed construction on my 7,000 square foot custom house in Mesa. The owner, Dave Knudsen, personally spent a considerable amount of time with me and my wife throughout the entire process. Dave had an amazing knowledge regarding all of the newest styles and construction techniques that helped make our house the cornerstone of Lady Hawke Estates.
I personally recommended Five Star Luxury Builders to a couple of my current key clients; Dave is currently working on jobs for both of them. I would recommend Dave for any custom home construction project of any kind, but especially high end custom projects at a very marketable rate.
Approximately two years ago, I employed Five Star Luxury Builders to build a custom home in Paradise Valley, Arizona. I would highly recommend Dave Knudsen to anyone interested in residential construction. His skills, attention to detail and promptness are absolutely the best I have ever experienced or even heard of. All projects have the occasional hiccup, but Dave was always there to quickly solve the problem. Most importantly, he did what he said he was going to do, in the time he told me it would take, for the price he told me it was going to costs… or less.
Additionally, I referred Dave to a friend and client, and he had the same experience. Dave is the only person I would consider using if I ever build again.
Dave’s organizational skills are stunning. On time and under budget, I gave him a Rolex as a token of my deep appreciation with his final check.
I hired David and Five Star Luxury Builders to build my house in North Central Phoenix and from the beginning everything was handled with the utmost in professionalism and care. My wife and I were always kept informed about every detail and the schedule of the building process. I know this will be hard to believe for anyone who has built a home, but David and Five Star Luxury Builders finished the build on time and on budget.
David always presented himself and his work in the most professional manner. He and his company would be an asset to anyone who is looking to build a home and with that in mind I offer this letter of reference and recommendation.
I had purchased a home that was built in the late 1980’s. I knew that eventually it would need to be updated / remodeled but dreaded the task. I had heard about several “horror stories” and was in no hurry to be one of them. Finally, in 2005 I decided to take the plunge and remodel my 4,000 square foot home. After interviewing numerous builders, an arduous task, I was finally introduced to David Knudsen, owner of Five Star Luxury Builders.
First, I was pleasantly surprised that David actually showed up (on time) for his appointment because many of the other builders did not. He took several notes and made several recommendations for ideas about the remodel. He worked up a bid that was within my budget, delivered it to me quickly and went over it with me in detail. I decided to go with his company and work began shortly thereafter.
My remodel was pretty extensive. I basically “gutted” my whole house inside and out. Walls were removed, flooring completely redone throughout the house, doors punched in that were never there, a guest house was added out back, my pool was completely remodeled and all of my landscape (front and back) was installed. The whole process was completed in approximately 4 months.
David made the process so simple that I regretted never doing it sooner. He obtained all the permits, was on the jobsite supervising every day and even performed many of the tasks himself paying attention to details that I would never have thought of. At the end of the remodel, I was within a few hundred dollars of my original bid and in awe of my new home!
I do not know of many other people that would write a letter on behalf of their construction company, but I am definitely one of them! Five Star Luxury Builders is an honest, fair, professional company that I would highly recommend to anyone.
