Testimonials

Moving to Hawaii and having a house built is a giant step full of potential pitfalls. After sifting through the websites of 30 west side builders I thank my lucky stars that I was able to hire Bobby Nakamura. An experienced, well respected local builder with a stellar reputation I would not hesitate to work with Bobby on another project. He delivered our dream house on time and on budget and always kept us informed on the scheduling of subcontractors and inspectors. Having built several houses myself, I have to confess there was not one phase of construction that I could have done better. My wife and I are still happy customers two years after moving in.

Bobby completed our home a little over a year ago and we couldn’t be happier with the result. He chooses his sub-contractors carefully and demands quality work from them. The attention to detail is exceptional. Over the years my wife and I owned three new homes on the mainland. None of them were built as well as this home. Our family is so pleased with our home, our two sons had Bobby build homes for them too!

Several years ago we decided to build a home in the North Kona area. We had many builder recommendations but we were the most impressed with the quality and style of the homes built by Bobby Nakamura, Inc. As soon as we made the decision to have Bobby build our home we knew we made the right choice – he paid attention to the smallest details, the construction site was maintained in a professional manner, the process was seamless and on time. These aspects of our project were very important to us, however, the day we walked into our finished home for the first time was a day we’ll never forget. It was absolutely stunning (and still is!) and took our breath away. Our home is beautiful and constructed in the best possible way. We absolutely recommend Bobby Nakamura of Bobby, Inc. for any project as he is easy to work with and a true professional.

We highly recommend Bobby Nakamura as custom home builder in Hawaii. Bobby built our home in Puu Lani Ranch while we were living in Colorado. He completed the project on time and on budget. During the construction he was always honest, patient and reliable. His professional skills are outstanding. Our current construction projects include two large pergolas and a pool gazebo. Bobby is our first choice as contractor for these projects and for all the ones yet to come.

Bobby Nakamura was not only our contractor; he also turned out to be one of our friends. He went above and beyond our expectations of a contractor. When credit was difficult, Bobby was there to help us every step of the way with financing. Construction went smoothly and our home was completed in a timely manner as scheduled. Bobby is very honest and has excellent quality workmanship. Bobby is also well-known in the community, well-liked and respected. We worked closely with Bobby, he let us make decisions and was there to guide us. He did everything to help us achieve our goal of home ownership – we so appreciate Bobby for all that he has done for us. We were truly blessed to have met Bobby and have him build our beautiful home. We highly recommend him for your construction needs.

From beginning to end Bobby was outstanding on every facet of our job. He managed the project professionally by keeping his crew and subcontractors on task and on time. His crew was efficient, polite and always kept the jobsite safe, neat and clean. Bobby was easy to work with and helped us on the little details each step of the way because he knew it mattered to us. The two things we were most impressed by, however, was that Bobby finished our home on time and within budget and was very responsive to and took care of any questions or issues that came up after the project was complete! We will definitely use Bobby, Inc. again.

My name is Larry Baird, real estate appraiser with in excess of 30 years experience in Kona. I have conducted appraisals for both proposed and completed residences that Bobby has undertaken. My experience has been that Bobby builds a good solid house, completes the project in a workmanlike and timely manner. When banks retain me to undertake progress construction inspections on Bobby’s builds, they are always done when I arrive at the site and they are built to the plans and specifications agreed to.

Bobby is currently in the process of building our new home. We are roughly about half way through the process. I hear from him about every day about the many details of construction. Rather than making choices for us, he often gives us options, and lets us decide what we want. If we don’t know and want his opinion, he will generally offer advice. Bobby has a good reputation in the community. Past clients, lenders and suppliers all speak highly of him.

Bobby Nakamura of Bobby Inc. recently constructed a house for my wife and me in Kohala Estaes. He had the best bid for the house and constructed the house on schedule. The quality of his work was excellent. He was always very responsive to any questions or concerns we had during construction. We initiated several changes during the construction and Bobby gave us a fair price on all of them. I highly recommend Bobby to any one looking for an honest, high quality, and a good price builder.

Bobby Nakamura of Bobby Inc. made building Hawaiian a truly aloha experience. As a recently retired Marine and Navy military medical provider and commander with a spouse who is a senior level educational administrator, we had high expectations…and Bobby Inc. far exceeded them. He was on time, below budget, and always the most encouraging. He weathered the inevitable hiccups of building on an exclusive property like Kohala Ranch with immediate action tempered with kindness. His goal was to get Jane and I into our ranch home and to do this he used his exceptional reputation and local contractor network with great skill. We were the lucky ones when our building supply manager pointed to Bobby in their store and said there goes the best builder you’ll ever meet. We agree…and our life is immeasurably richer because Bobby Inc. took special care to build our custom home like it was his own.

We interviewed several contractors on the Big Island, but our choice to use Bobby Inc. to build our house in Kona was the best decision we ever could have made. Bobby completed our project in 5 months while we were living in Phoenix, AZ. He approached our construction project with professionalism, honesty, and integrity. We feel blessed and lucky to have found such a great contractor to build our dream home.
