My wife and I would like to take a moment to thank you for our new home. The house itself is incredible and everything we hoped it would be, including the attention to detail in the craftsmanship. We can see ourselves possibly spending the rest of our lives here. More importantly, thanks for the service experience that you and Copley Design and Development have provided throughout the process... you've been straightforward, attentive, professional, and generally a pleasure to work with.. I won't hesitate to recommend friends to you when they are looking to build homes of their own. - ALEX RIGOPULOS

I met Merek Franklin approximately seven years ago when he and his wife moved into the area.. His respect for the residence and quality of craftsmanship has continued to improve the neighborhood that my grandmother and my family have called home. Based on Merek's impeccable style and class, my wife and I engaged him to renovate [our] property. As we are drawing near to the completion of our project, I am more confident now that Merek Franklin is an asset to the community as a develper with the highest moral standards...It is my hope that he will continue to seek out projects that will continue to beautify our neighborhood. - RANDY JOHNSON

Purchasing a first home can be a daunting task, let alone building one. Copley Design and Development worked closely with us from the early stages of planning and design to the final details of trim and landscaping. Throughout the entire building process, they allowed us flexibility to customize our home to meet both our taste and budget... My husband and I are thrilled with our new home. Not only do we take great comfort in the warm and pleasing aesthetics offered outside its walls, but from the strong integrity held within them. - LISA & ALLEN POMA

This letter is to describe how good a construction neighbor Copley Design & Development has been over the past few months. They have been well organized, courteous and considerate. Their worksite has been tidy and every effort has been made to infringe the least amount on our property. They have worked very quickly and have transformed a rundown structure into a lovely residence which we are proud to have adjacent to us... I can't speak highly enough of Merek Franklin and his company. - PHILIP SIMKOWITZ
