Our new home in Costa Rica was built by Mike Hopkins Construction. The project began on June 3, 2007 and was finished in the first week of December 2007. This time schedule is almost unheard of in Costa Rica but Mike and his crew of competent workers were so positive from the beginning that they could finish the house in seven months that they actually did it in six. We began the preliminary work with the architect in July of 2006 so everything was in place to begin construction in June of 2007. Mike worked with us to complete the house on budget and on time, and with no hidden surprises. We are enjoying our retired life in Costa Rica and we love our new home! Richard and Peggy Pease
We, Sheryll and Lauren Neigenfind, would like to express our pleasure with the home Michael Hopkins built on our behalf. It was a big project, 6,600 square feet, on our beachfront lot it Playa Potrero, Costa Rica. Our experience with Mike Hopkins proved to be on-time, on-budget and resulted in a beautiful and very structurally sound residence. If the opportunity arose, we would definitely use his services again! Lauren and Sheryll Neigenfind
My wife, Connie, and I chose to invest in Costa Rica and wanted a two story beachfont townhome for retirement. We used the services of Mike Hopkins for a variety of reasons. First, we have known Mike for many years and know he is honest. He does what he says he is going to do and he takes pride in his workmanship, which is often difficult to find in foreign countries. Second, he has many years building experience in California and knew the kind of American quality we wanted. Third, he has a reputation for being the fastest builder in the area and working well with the local workforce. He keeps quality high with prices low. He helped us with several extra personal touches that we wanted to add to our townhome. He speaks Spanish and has lived in Costa Rica for eight years and has developed a good network of suppliers and sub-contractors. He handled everything for us, from architects, engineers, government inspectors, permits and insurance. We love our townhome and vacation there several times every year.
We highly recommend Mike's services. Gary and Connie Kaasa
