A Joy To Work With

I worked with Robert and Michael Gertz of St. Clair Builders on my custom home in 2018 from beginning design to completion. Robert was a joy to work with and kept me constantly informed of progress, changes in pricing & overages and helped me tremendously in all design phases. Robert and...

A Positive Experience

My experience building with St. Clair Builders was extremely positive.  I enjoyed working with Robert and Michael Gertz on every aspect of the building process from design to the full execution of the plans. The team worked well together in producing a quality built home with impeccable attention...

A Total and Complete Pleasure

Building is a process – one that often leads to frustration and stress.  (We should know; we’ve built four homes and overseen three retail build-outs over the past thirty years.) Working with St. Clair Builders was a total and complete pleasure.  It was always a “we can do that!” attitude from...

Attention to Detail was Amazing

We selected St. Clair builders to construct our new home in Tequesta, Florida. Our lot is located directly on the Loxahatchee River, with panoramic water views. The views were the main reason we purchased the property, and we wanted to enjoy them. Bob Gertz of St. Clair understood our vision and...

Beautiful and Well Built

Hello Mike and everyone at St. Clair Builders! You probably don't remember me, but you built me a home in Port St. Lucie back in 2007.  I just wanted to let you know that I sold the home and closed on it yesterday....a very bittersweet moment for me. I absolutely LOVED MY HOME and cannot thank you...

Built it to Last

Build it to last a hundred years or more! That's what we told St. Clair Builders owners Mike and Bob Gertz. And that's just what they did when they built our home in 1997. In the 12 years we have lived in our home we have had numerous natural occurrences that have put the strength and quality of...


Mary and I want to congratulate you on 25 years in business. It's hard to believe we've been in our house 2 years already. We made the right decision having St. Clair build our house. We wish you continued success and hope we'll see you in Panther Woods again. - Steve & Mary Hanson 

Experienced Design/Build Firm

Over the years I’ve designed and built a number of custom homes in New York State, both for my family and speculatively for others. When it was time to build a new home in The Moorings in Vero Beach my wife and I sought out an experienced design/build firm that we could work closely with on the...

Our House

Our house was built by St. Clair Builders in 1993. There is not a crack or a problem with anything in the house. St. Clair designed the house and the compliments from visitors are fabulous. One of our friends said that the house belongs in Architectural Digest! The millwork, design and attention...

Professional Service

St. Clair Builders, brothers Bob and Mike Gertz, and the rest of their staff provided professional service from day one and throughout completion of our dream home. Their design efforts provided an attention to detail that resulted in a truly custom built home. We came to them with many of our own...
