Our experience purchasing a Villa in Pine Crest Villas from Carolyn McKee: We have built a number of new homes over the years and now that we no longer need a 2-story home, discovered Pine Crest Villas. We were amazed that there was any new construction in Seminole and further delighted to discover Carolyn McKee at the site. We knew just what we wanted and Carolyn was great in showing us how we could maximize our “wish list” and soon we will move into our beautiful new home. (Once we saw the plans and initial work completed by Gulfwind, we knew these would sell quickly and made a decision to buy in just 7 days.) Carolyn is much more than just a sales person since she has had extensive construction experience and in addition to that is a genuinely nice/honest person to work with.
This is just to let you know how wonderful my experience has been purchasing a villa at Pine Crest Villas in Seminole Florida. If I had known how professional Carolyn was I would have bought a villa sooner. She has become more like a friend. She really is very professional and knows her stuff. Andrea is just great. She can really visualize what your selections will look like and will make great suggestions that you never thought of. I can not wait to move in!!!! Whoever reads this, do not hesitate to purchase a villa at Pine Crest. The quality is superior and Carolyn and Andrea are angels. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
It has been a pleasure working with you all and you have exceeded my expectations at every turn. I am so grateful for your graciousness and expertise. I continue to be amazed at the speed and beauty of the improvements on the property. I’m the happiest woman in the world right now!
Carolyn McKee is new home specialist for Gulfwind Homes. She is much more than a traditional Realtor. She is a contractor/builder herself and can explain things from a perspective that most traditional Realtors wouldn’t have. It is also nice to know that her son-in-law is the owner of Gulfwind Homes. It made me feel very comfortable that we were getting the real “inside scoop” on the development.
I am closing on my new Villa at Brookside Villas (Lot # 23) tomorrow. It has been a pleasure to work with Gulfwind Homes throughout the build process. Carolyn McKee has been very professional from day one, and has worked closely with me to get me in the right location at Brookside. Being a single male, it has been especially nice to have a woman’s perspective on decorating and her help with selecting colors and add-ons has been exceptional. I also had the pleasure of meeting Michael Willenbacher, the President of Gulfwind Homes. He is proud of his reputation in the building industry and gave me assurance that I would be happy with the final product. Lastly, I want to thank Don Pierce, the Site Superintendent, who I worked with the last few months. I know I drove him crazy on occasion, as I was in the building industry for years and have a tendency to be somewhat demanding at times. To his credit, Don was professional throughout the process and stayed focused on his many responsibilities. Even through heavy rains and storms he worked diligently to stay on schedule. Now that we are coming down to closing, everything is coming together very nicely. Having been a Superintendent in the building industry myself, I understand the job and Don and Carolyn have earned my respect. Michael has put together a great staff at Gulfwind Homes.
From the first moment I met Carolyn McKee and saw the models at Brookside, I knew that this was where Stan and I would be moving. The first night after I saw the Alston model, I mentally started to move our things into the home. I lost plenty of sleep moving furniture around in my head!
The entire process was seamless. It flowed. Nothing we requested was too much and every question was answered quickly. This is our fourth new home and the experience was by far the best!
We are happily moved into our new villa and loving every minute. Thanks to all of you. The move was a very positive experience.
I have contracted for the purchase of Lot #21 in Brookside Villas and want to acknowledge Carolyn McKee and the people who work with her on making this one of the most enjoyable new home purchases I’ve made. This villa will be the eighth new build home I’ve purchased over the years. Carolyn has helped to make the entire transaction go so smoothly that it seems all I have to do is sit back and wait to move in. I’ve been impressed with the level of professionalism and detail that has gone into making sure the builder knows exactly what I want for my unit. I’m looking forward to the day I’ll be able to make this villa mine,
Thank you for having such a professional and friendly sales specialist on site to help with my purchase.
Carolyn McKee, Is an outstanding new homes specialist. Not only does she dress and look professional, but she is at all of the appointments on time. also, she is able to answer most of your questions and if she doesn’t know the answer she finds out and get back with you.

One year ago we stopped by a development of yours in Pinellas park and met Linda Kaspari. She was very polite and knowledgeable. We began discussing options and floor plans etc and advised her of our position at that time and said its ok. It takes time. She maintained contact with us and kept us up to date about the hidden preserve home sites. In April we went on a cruise and someone purchased the last site in that area while we were gone and we were very upset. Linda advised us she would keep us up to date about the second phase. Couple of months later we received an email from her and immediately pounced on it and began the purchase process. She demonstrated hands down the most patience as I have ever seen. She’s been extremely understanding that this is a first for us and we have asked her a lot of questions about everything regarding our home. It was been an absolute pleasure to work her and your company. Thank you very much for building the home of our dreams. We are extremely grateful and especially for Linda. She’s been amazing throughout the entire process.

What an amazing experience creating our new home with Gulfwind was! All of the people with whom we worked were knowledgeable and experienced—and didn’t mind answering our questions! The entire experience– from our first meeting with the sales representative to the final walk through with the project manager—was wonderful. All of the professionals we met along the way were so skilled at their jobs and put those skills to good use in creating our home. And everyone is so happy to be working for Gulfwind which says more about this company than any testimonial . We are very thankful for these dedicated, friendly professional. Our new house has become the home of our dreams—– far exceeding our expectations.
During the process of building out new home, Linda Trautman has gone above and beyond her job with exceptional customer service. Linda’s primary focus is on her customer satisfaction. She is their biggest advocate. Her outstanding professional knowledge of building a home was our guiding light thru the entire process at all times meeting our wants, needs and concerns were her main objective. Linda’s ability to handle and solve problems and concerns were amazing. Over her long career as a new home specialist, she has an outstanding group of resources and contacts. So, when questions or problems arise she would get the answers and solve concerns quickly.

We have been working with Carolyn McKee on your new Brookside Villas project. When a company starts a new project such as this and nothing is on the site but some machines moving dirt how does a prospective customer evaluate your company? That responsibility falls upon the shoulders of your salesperson that is working out of her car because her sales trailer has not arrived on site yet. Your company can rest easy knowing that the person on that front line is Carolyn McKee. She has been able to answer all of our questions and explain the development process perfectly. We now have a deposit on one of the homes and we thank Carolyn for all she has done and look forward to working with her as the construction process continues..
I want to express my gratitude towards TJ Lawrence for being so helpful throughout our home build, and purchase, as well as after we moved in. He truly has been great.
Linda and Alisa, It has been great working with both of you too. Thank you so much.
Alisa, I just wanted to say thank you to you and Mike for all that you have done helping me with any questions and concerns I’ve had throughout my warranty period and well beyond it now! J You guys have been a pleasure to work with from day one and I never hesitate to mention you guys exclusively as my recommendation for a home builder! Thank you again!
Linda with gulfwind has been amazing. She has been a true advocate to us and has assisted us above and beyond in every step of the process. We are grateful for her and the service she has provided.
I want to thank you both for such a positive, rewarding experience with our soon-to-be new home.
I would like to say we had the best experience with Gulfwind Homes and their agents. We looked for a home for only a week when we attended an open house of Gulfwind homes. I knew as we walked in the door that this was it, the house I was searching for. The home was built very well, the design was amazing and the agent was very knowledgeable. Within a day we made an offer, it was accepted and we closed within one week. The team at Gulfwind Homes were extremely helpful at providing everything we needed to accomplish this in such a short time. I would highly recommend Gulfwind. We had a wonderful experience and are now enjoying our Florida home.
The entire team over at Gulfwind Homes has been amazing to work with.

Gulfwind homes was very accommodating in addressing our wishes and making our house the home we wanted. Everyone we worked with went the extra mile & made themselves available more than we could have hoped for before, during, and even after the completion of our home. Thank you everyone at Gulfwind Homes!
Hi Alisa, I would like to take this time to thank you for the wonderful experience we had in choosing Gulf Wind Homes as our Builder. From start to finish your team made the process very enjoyable, the initials dealing with Michael, signing of the contract and communicating with Tony during construction made the whole process run very smooth. Your personal help in aiding us through the colour selection appointment was much appreciated. We found all your staff very easy to work with and available to answer any questions that we had along the way. We are very happy with our home and look forward to enjoying it. Thank You again.
Lori and Trey
We couldn’t wait to write a testimony, and I’m sure we’ll have another raving review when all is completed! We couldn’t ask for a better home building experience thus far with Gulfwind Homes. The entire team has been very proactive and efficient in the initial stages of building. Mike and Linda have answered every question promptly and thoroughly! The design session with Alisa was a breeze with her guidance and patience. While we know they are building multiple homes, they made us feel as if we were their only clients and the house is just as special to them as it is to us. We can’t wait to continue this journey with them! So thankful to be working with y’all on this! It’s an answer to prayer as we’ve been lifting this lot up in prayer since we bought it, asking God to direct each step we take, and he directed us straight to your company! We are just so excited and grateful. Thanks for all your hard work on our behalf.

To our Gulfwind Homes family… You all are amazing! We could not be happier in our “Dream Home”. After spending months and month searching for the perfect “house”, we found our Dream “home” with Gulfwind Homes. Having the experience of building a home in the past with one of the nation’s Top 5 builders we could truly appreciate the Quality, Design, Upgrades and the Attention to Detail that goes into a Gulfwind home. We truly believe that Gulfwind Homes provides a better product with higher standards. Not to mention, the Amazing Customer Service that we have experienced throughout the entire process of purchasing our home. They truly care about their customers, their homes and keeping up the integrity of the community in which they build. We feel grateful to have found our “Dream Home” with Gulfwind Homes and we sincerely Thank you!
Jolyn & Mike S.
Thank you Gulfwind Homes for our amazing new home. I must say that I was not looking forward to building a home but your entire team made it very easy and an enjoyable experience. All the research you did when I wanted something specific to actually changing the plan to make it work was amazing. The home truly “fits” us and our new Florida lifestyle. Nothing was left undone; your attention to detail was truly appreciated. In fact, when it was time for the final walk-through, TJ was pointing out things to me that had to be redone or changed which meant we had several walk-through’s before he was satisfied. Thank you again to the entire Gulfwind team!!
I wanted to thank each of you for working with me on building my home. When you boil this down, this really is a business venture but it never felt that way. Each of you did a great job of working with me from the first day that Jennifer and I looked at my home model through today. I’ve been in my home now roughly 30 days and it really is a great house in a great location. Every guest from friends to the cable guy all say the same thing, ‘You have a beautiful home.’ Thank you to each of you!

Gulfwind Homes provided an exciting, methodical, thorough, and personal approach to our custom home building experience. Everyone has heard of the nightmares that can accompany even the thought of new home build, but we can honestly say that our experience was extremely smooth. The reason can be boiled down simply to the passion and experience that both Mike and Tony have in the industry. I was kept apprised of every detail and participated in every decision throughout the project. Gulfwind Homes has an unvarying commitment to quality and will not compromise. They built my home as if it was their own and I know they are extremely proud of the result. We are certainly very excited with our new home and would irrefutably recommend Gulfwind Homes to build your home.

Gulfwind managed our complex remodel and completely transformed our home. The project was carefully managed, sequentially inserting the right trade at the right time. The project moved at a solid pace and everyone took great care to clean up each day. Overall, our experience was fantastic, and we really could not be happier with the end result!
