"You are clearly a pro at what you do, and you have a great constructive attitude. Nothing is a problem, only a possible challenge!! Love that."

I wanted to express my sincere thanks to you, Anthony, and your entire team on a job well done in building our new home in Greenwich. You are clearly a pro at what you do, and you have a great constructive attitude. Nothing is a problem, only a possible challenge!! Love that. Unexpected things come up in every construction project and you and your team handled them in a professional, constructive manner, always to a great result for all. 

Your attention to detail, and your deep knowledge of all construction aspects of the project gave Lee and me total comfort to that the porject will be looked after and done well, even if we could not be there as much as we wanted. In the end, the house is beautiful, and we love every inch of it.

I would be remis if I did not mention your team and your subs. I got to know them well also during the course of construction and there is not one sub that Lee and I did not like. They were all excellent at their respective trades, fairly priced, but equally importantly, great people with whom we had a great relationship. They cared about their work, and did an excellent job, and we are so comforted that they are there with you to look after anything that may need attention after we moved in. 

You are free to share this letter with any of your prospective custom home customers, and if any of them have any questions, I would be happy to speak to them in person or on the phone. We are proud of the house we built, and we feel very fortunate to consider you and your family friends now.

"He is the only person we would ever consider for another project and he is the only reason we would even consider another project!!"

When we decided to build a home, the only memories we had was of a renovation with a contractor that was the typical nightmare many experience, poor workmanship, cost overruns and a project that was over budget and late in being delivered.

When we choose Longo Management to build our home we were obviously apprehensive and unsure. While we solicited three bids for our plans, Mr. Longo’s was not the low bid, but certainly more transparent, clear and lacking in “hidden costs”. Furthermore, Mr. Longo- or “Tony” showed his desire for earning the job by providing additional insights on the plans and the costs along with important insights on navigating the bureaucratic red tape of the town government prior to us making our decisions. One key attribute is that Tony Longo finds solutions that are a win win for the homeowner and his company. You always feel like he is fair and well intentioned whenever a “problem” emerges during a project.

Tony Longo was able to bring our job in under budget, earlier by three months than anticipated, and we moved out of our home in August, he was there the next day to knock down our old house and was  pouring a new footprint and basement a week later. The quality was like he built the home for his own family, ensuring it was well insulated and no air seepage along with walls as trued and straight to ensure that everything fit just right.

When we arrived back in our home in May only nine months after moving out to have an entire home demolished and built from the ground up, nothing but smiles crossed each of our children’s faces and best of all my wife’s. The process was fast and thorough, but the teams Tony had in place to construct our home were diligent, timely and above all highly efficient. He made a challenging task, achievable and allowed my wife and family to realize her dreams in a manner that was pleasing and as stress free as possible.

The post construction period almost one and a half years later, the home is still functioning well and the appearance is wearing well. Tony Longo’s follow up is timely and he is still always finding a solution to any potential problem we uncover. We highly recommend Longo Management for any construction project large or small!!!! He is the only person we would ever consider for another project and he is the only reason we would even consider another project!! Feel free to email me at Brad.Cohen@icrinc.com

"We moved out of our house one week before demolition and moved back in our new home six months later"

We would be willing to bet not many couples throw a surprise party for their builder upon completion of their new home. We did. We worked with Tony’s wife, Rosie, to put together a list of his best friends and family and invited them all over for a blow-out surprise party at our new house that doubled Tony over as he walked in the door. Why? Because we felt like we owed him a big “Thank You.”

We moved out of our house one week before demolition and moved back in our new home six months later right before Thanksgiving and four months before the lease ran out at our rental house (we were expecting a 10 month build).  Only an incredible amount of hard work and attention to detail could have made that happen. Tony was at our house everyday, and he didn’t act like a GC. He acted like he was building his own house and this is Tony’s best quality… he cares.

Tony is committed, honest, and attentive to details. He finished ahead of time and on budget. There was not one issue that came up as a surprise and when obstacles did come up, they were discussed holistically and handled quickly.  We started the relationship with Tony crossing all the “t’s” and dotting all the “i’s” and ended it with him having a duplicate of our credit card.  Two years later, the house has withstood windstorms, floods, and snowstorms. We have not lost a single shutter or shingle. Our basement has not leaked a drop.

Obviously, Christine and I are thrilled with Tony and feel fortunate to have chosen him to build our house.  In our first meeting, Tony told us that his goal would be that we would become better friends at the end of the job then at the beginning — again that was just  another promise paid in full.

"Along the way you made suggestions to us for decisions we never realized we would have to make, but with the confidence you proudly display, last minute decisions were made with ease."

I wanted to write this letter to say thank you for the wonderful job you did in managing the building of our new home. When my husband Frank first mentioned to me that you would be running this project, I really had no idea the extent of the work you would be doing for us. I truly thought you were just going to be someone to keep my husband company while he spent a never ending amount of time renovating our home. Frank and I discussed for a long time the various dreams we shared of what our home would be and you, Tony, made them ALL come true.

From the day that you and I met, I knew in an instant you would take care of us and you were the right choice. You directed us step by step from choosing the windows and doors, the plumbing fixtures, the kitchen and bath design and so on. Each of the contractors and vendors that you put us in touch with surpassed our expectations of professionalism and the quality of their work. From the framer and the electrician, to the plumber and the floor guy, the stair designer, the tile guy, HVAC workers, and those in between, all were so pleasant to work with and all had a hand in turning this once run down house into a beautiful home. Beginning with that very first day, Frank and I felt as though you were building a home for your family, because of the care and attention to every detail, small and large, and because of the interaction with each trade to make sure they gave 110% and because you took every measure to ensure the quality and safety of our new home would stand for many decades to come.

Along the way you made suggestions to us for decisions we never realized we would have to make, but with the confidence you proudly display, last minute decisions were made with ease. Your dedication to not only our new home but to our family was one that caught us by surprise. The amount of time you took each day, the promise you kept, your attention to detail, your ability to save us money and your determination to finish this project in such a short amount of time, will not be forgotten. It will be highly recommended to anyone who inquires.

Tony, your commitment to our home was quickly recognized and made this a project for us to enjoy. It was a thrill to walk in each day to see the huge amount of progress. There were just a couple of days that we walked in to what we thought was a major problem, but you explained it was just the "issue of the day" and you handled each of them effortlessly and with great patience. Your knowledge of each industry trade, your loyal relationship with each contractor and vendor, your expertise in the town's rules and regulations and your vision of what we were expecting, all makes you a master at what you do.

With a heartfelt thank you for building us our beautiful new home and lots of love,

Michelle and Frank Pennino

"You proved to be a total pleasure to work with and your professional disposition and attitude went a long way for us."

When Michael and I decided to demolish and reconstruct a 2 family dwelling at 68 Northfield Street in Greenwich CT, we were faced with the biggest challenge of finding a general contractor who we could trust and felt comfortable with, someone knowledgeable and reliable who could work at our fast pace, be neat and organized, and run the job smoothly and efficiently, while keeping good harmony among the contractors.  We wanted the job complete and ready for tenant occupancy in six months from the start date..a challenge Longo Management took on with pride and confidence.

 

Upon our initial interview and meeting, there was an instant connection. You proved to be a total pleasure to work with and your professional disposition and attitude went a long way for us. You kept everyone on their toes, had the contractors lined up in a timely fashion and as promised, delivered a complete project in the time frame agreed upon.

 

We are very pleased and can’t thank you enough. Mike and I sing your praises and hope to do more projects with you in the future.

"Your attention to the detail and suggestions throughout the project, transformed a pretty nice looking drawing, into a tremendous new home. It is truly rare these days to find someone who takes so much pride in what they do."

Amy and I just wanted to write about how happy we are with our new home!   When we first thought about hiring someone to do this project, we didn’t really know what to expect having never done a remodel or major renovation of any type.  From the first day we met you in our (old) kitchen, we knew you would be the right person to help us manage our project.   Now that we are finished, we are both in agreement that we couldn’t have made a better choice.

Your attention to the detail and suggestions throughout the project, transformed a pretty nice looking drawing, into a tremendous new home.  We know that because we opted to work with you, our home, is far better constructed and is much more beautiful than it would have been if we hired someone who just worked “off the plan”.  In particular, your suggestion of the much more detailed exterior trim absolutely made a world of difference.  This and so many other “little things” that you thought of and just did because it was the right thing to do, provided us comfort that you were on top of everything.  It really showed how much you care about your work and the people you work with.

It is truly rare these days to find someone who takes so much pride in what they do.  During the project, several neighbors commented to us about your dedication to our project, your hustle on the job site and just how efficient and timely a job you ran.  This was not news to us as we also saw this first hand everyday.  Your accessibility, via e-mail and phone as well as your constant oversight is really amazing.  We completely respect your work and your work ethic.

Our meetings were very helpful in gauging the progress of the overall job and of the budget we came into the project with.  I can say with confidence, we could not have done everything that we did in this house and to this house based on our budget with someone else building this home.   I can also say with confidence, no one could have done it faster!  You basically built a brand new house in four and a half months.

As we said a few times throughout this project, we never thought this house would look as beautiful as it does.  We knew it would be nice, but no where near as great as you helped make it. It is amazing to walk down the street toward our house and admire that this is in fact our home.  You played a huge part in that and we are very grateful for all you did for us.

If we are ever asked to recommend someone to manage their construction, renovation or project we will certainly recommend you with confidence and if you ever need to have someone contact us to discuss working with you, please pass along our number.  You were a pleasure to work with and you exceeded our expectations.

"From Tony down to all of his subcontractors, they truly are a class act."

When we learned that our neighbor's adjacent lot had been sold to a developer, we thought that having construction next door would be a huge headache. But from the outset of the project, Tony Longo showed he was a true professional with respect for the neighborhood. He was engaged with us from the beginning, making sure that his project and crew wasn't disruptive to us or our property. Not only did Tony build a beautiful home next door, he even noticed some unfinished exterior trim on our home and fixed it at no cost to us. From Tony down to all of his subcontractors, they truly are a class act.

"It's rare to find a builder with such integrity and passion."

We hired Tony and his team to add a large extension to our home which included a well-planned master suite, a luxurious master bath, an outdoor lanai with an outdoor kitchen, bath, oversized patio and extensive masonry work. We also redesigned our interior living space and created a new look for our home on the exterior. Tony is incredibly organized, ensures that the job goes smoothly and quicky. He was attentive to all of our questions and concerns and was very helpful in the decision making process with his recommendations. He made the entire process seamless. We found Tony and the crews that he worked with trustworthy and reliable. It's rare to find a builder with such integrity and passion. Not only do we consider him a great builder, he is a great neighbor and is always willing to go the extra mile! We highly recommend him!

"Executed the job with precision, timeliness, and urgency."

I am a Greenwich homeowner who hired Tony Longo to rehab my large basement, my outdoor 800 square foot bluestone patio, paint the exterior of my house and install new garage doors as well as French doors out to our veranda. Needless to say it was a smaller project than the beautiful, luxury homes he usually builds. However not only was Tony thrilled to have my job but executed it with precision, timeliness and urgency. He also did it all with a smile on his face along with the fierce determination that is so characteristic of him. Tony is a young man but acts old school, as in he deeply cares about his profession and acts professionally at all times. He replies promptly to every phone call, text or email AND he has more energy than any builder I have ever dealt with and I have built or rehabilitated 7 homes in the past 10 years. Tony is the REAL DEAL. He made my entire experience easy and got the job done on time and within budget!

"The job was done within the time proposed and under budget!"

We worked with Tony to add an additional full bath to our home. Tony was a delight to work with from day one. He showed up early and cleaned the site everyday before leaving. He took extra care to partition off the site so that the dust would not travel to the rest of the house during the renovation. He oversaw every detail and went to great lengths to make sure the project was completed to our expectations. The job was done within the time proposed and under budget! We were left with a beautiful new bathroom that has received many compliments on workmanship. Finally, having grown up in Greenwich, Tony is a wealth of information and fantastic resource to know!

"I believe and have seen that he has the capacity to bring your project to completion with excellence."

Tony Longo and I have worked together for 7 years. Tony's creative mind and desire to give customers the best value, has developed a construction model that is superior to the rest. It allows customers to get a premier product at sound pricing. Tony is value and production minded. He looks toward efficiency in the construction process to facilitate getting the job done on time (if not early) and on budget. Tony's model allows clients to be in control and have a complete understanding of both the costs and the quality. This allows each unique individual homeowner's personal preferences and priorities to be met. I would recommend him highly. I believe and have seen that he has the capacity to bring your project to completion with excellence.

"I would highly recommend Catalyst Construction for a complete design/build of your custom home. "

I have had the pleasure of working with Tony and supplying cabinetry for his construction projects for the past 16 years. He is a quality builder who pays attention to detail. All projects that we have done together were completed within budget and on schedule. He is always professional and maintains great relationships with all of his clients during the construction process.

I have also worked on Tony's numerous spec units and enjoy collaborating with him on the kitchen and bath designs. The units are always thoughtfully designed. Tony's partner Mike has been a wonderful addition to the company and they make a dynamic team.

I am looking forward to working on future projects together in the coming years. I would highly recommend Catalyst Construction for a complete design/build of your custom home.
