Morgan-Keefe Builders Testimonials
“To keep the owners abreast of the progress of their Lake Keowee home, Morgan posted the schedule in an e-mail regularly. ‘And he put pictures on the web often to let us see the project,’ said one of the owners. ‘The company is very computer savvy. We were able to follow the progress from our home in Florida when we were not able to be in South Carolina.’”

“The best decision we made was going with Neal-Prince, who recommended Carol Hamilton and Malcolm Morgan. All were dedicated to quality… No one took shortcuts and they communicated with each other exceptionally well… Morgan-Keefe, the contractor, did a remarkable job … They delivered the highest quality… This was by far the best team we’ve ever had.”

“Also key to the success of the nearly two year-long project was the role of Morgan-Keefe Builders (who) helped the owner build a successful team.”

“Selecting the builder was a cinch for the homeowners, too. ‘Malcolm Morgan had built for our friends who lived in Champion Hills, and we liked the quality of his work and the quality of his people,” said the husband. ‘’He had a gentleman on site the whole time it was being built, and he never hesitated to get on the phone with us, either.’”

“As first-time home builders, we are so thankful that Morgan-Keefe Builders handled our project. Their commitment to quality and client satisfaction never wavered during the building process and resulted in a home we love.

“Morgan-Keefe Builders’ quality was outstanding and the project was completed on time and on budget—a real feat in the construction world. We have built seven homes all over the U.S., and this was the most trouble-free project of them all.”
“Picture this: A holiday party in Western North Carolina with many people in attendance. The subject of builders comes up. Most people are grumbling, but two couples are raving about their builder. Who is the builder? Well, Morgan-Keefe Builders, of course! One of the houses is in Bright’s Creek, the other Lake Adger.”
“Interning with Morgan-Keefe has been an exceptional opportunity. Not only have I learned a lot about construction, I have also learned a great deal about quality and outstanding craftsmanship. I have no doubt that I chose to work for the best luxury home builder in Western North Carolina.
I will be taking a lot of new knowledge back to college with me, along with a real world understanding of construction management. Morgan-Keefe is admirable not only for the quality of its homes but also for its integrity and client-centered approach. I cannot thank you enough for this opportunity and for the warm welcome I received.”
—McKenzie D., Construction Management major at Western Carolina University

“Malcolm and team,
Having done construction on our home in NJ, we knew that picking the right builder for our new home on Lake Keowee was of the utmost importance. Our architect told us that he had just finished a house on the lake with Morgan-Keefe and what a wonderful job you and the team had done. Well, that was an understatement! From start to finish, the professionalism of your team from estimation to construction and now upkeep has been fantastic. Just as importantly, the communication from you, Brenda and Brian was constant so that we never felt out of the loop.
We then decided to build a deck and gazebo as well which is obviously a much smaller job. However, Morgan-Keefe did the same great job on the deck as with the house. We can’t thank all of the Morgan-Keefe team enough.”
—Leah & Jeff K
“I have to say that after two days of making decisions last week I was mentally exhausted, but Clay and I always come away from Morgan-Keefe thanking our lucky stars we picked them as our builders. We really enjoy working with every one of you. Everyone is so good at what they do and we appreciate it so much.”
“I can say this is the BEST building experience we have had…! By the way I have not had any really bad experiences! So in essence you have walked among the A students and have achieved an A+!”
“Ron had a couple of coworkers who shared their great experiences with Malcolm Morgan from Morgan-Keefe Builders. It only took one meeting for us to decide that he was the right guy for the project. As absentee owners, we had to place a lot of faith in our builder to deliver what we envisioned. They provided weekly updates with pictures and we spoke with the team on a regular basis. Having a devoted project manager on site every day also made a huge difference. Throughout the process we were very comfortable and never felt hindered by the distance. The builder’s meticulous attention to detail far surpassed our expectations and we have been very satisfied with the final product.”
—Ruth & Ron B
“I just finished reading the article in Carolina Home and Garden. I am awestruck and speechless. It actually brought tears to my eyes as I thought about the fabulous result that this tremendous team delivered for Rich and me. I’ve known this all along, but to read it in print just overwhelmed me. Thank you all so much for your fabulous work and for being such a great team!! You know that you can always use us as a reference – after all, who else can we say made our dream come true!”
“Thank you so very much for ALWAYS being available to help. You will never know what comfort your being so responsive to my requests was to me as a long distance homeowner. I love going to MK Facebook page and looking at the beautiful homes you are building all over western Carolina. I wish for health, happiness and continued good business for many years to come. I have enjoyed our relationship and please know that we had the very best builder we could have ever wished for our home.”
“Ann and I want to tell each of you how much we appreciate the incredible house you’ve built for our retirement.
We bought these two lots back in 2006, not really knowing what our ultimate timeline would be. I looked back at old emails, and it looks like we started the process with MKB in late fall 2010. It’s been quite a journey, and quite a wonderful journey. We had never built a house before, and to do it for the first time long distance seemed like a potential recipe for disaster. Working with the right partner was absolutely essential, and we could not have worked with a better team than MKB. Your professionalism, expertise, patience and guidance were absolutely invaluable. The cost estimates were realistic, you kept us on track in making decisions and allowed us to truly enjoy the process. The inevitable speed bumps along the way were handled quickly and professionally, and never allowed to become issues or impediments to our mutual success. People absolutely cannot believe that we actually finished ahead of schedule and only 2.5% over the original cost estimate. That is truly remarkable.
As we were starting the process, we heard so many stories about so many headaches with building a custom home. You and your entire team made it so easy – and fun. It has truly been a pleasure being partners together in our dream, and we feel like we have gained new good friends in the process. You have a wonderful organization who knows how to build a home of superlative quality and treats their clients in a manner that builds a partnership of trust and respect.
You likely hear these accolades all the time from your clients. MKB came extremely highly recommended – by clients and by professionals in the construction and banking industries – and those kudos could not have been more spot on. Please count us among your clients who will sing your praises whenever we can and to whoever asks.”
