  • “Todd Bradley of Live Oak Builders updated and remodeled our guest bathroom. He and his staff did an outstanding job and also came up with very creative ideas. His crews were very respectful and always made sure the job was completed to our satisfaction. They always left the job site in immaculate condition. We are so pleased we are working with them on a remodel of our master bath. Five stars and kudos to Todd, his staff and Live Oak Builders.”

  • “We would like to thank you for everything you and your staff have done regarding the construction of our new home. From the first time we met you, everything has been nothing but positive. That includes our initial meetings where we shared our thoughts on floorplans and style, the actual planning process, reviews and changes to the plan, the actual construction, and finally the completion of the punch list. We especially appreciated the many suggestions that you and your staff (specifically Lisa) offered as we went through the entire process.

    You and your staff consistently displayed and provided excellent customer services. We certainly appreciate that. We must single out one staff member: Lisa Simmons, far, far exceeded all expectations. Her positive customer service, helpful ideas, suggestion in the planning process, suggestion for (and actual work in obtaining) many of the material selections and features for the new house, and her overall knowledge were all exceptional. You are fortunate to have her in your employ."

  • “A new custom built home requires a myriad of decisions to be made. Even if you think you know exactly what you want, the level of details can be overwhelming. Todd and his staff help you simplify the process. They make sure you do think of everything in order to give you the new home you want. The Live Oak crew provided us the quality and professionalism that are so important. His subcontractors were easy to work with and Todd always made sure we were satisfied with the end product. He completed our home on time as promised. Todd’s commitment to satisfaction extended past the move in day. His crew did not stop their help to us until the punch list was complete.”

  • “Todd and his team recently renovated our home, and we couldn't be more pleased. We had some areas that required thought, and Todd had just the right ideas. His team is highly professional and a pleasure to work with. Most of the project was done while we were in Australia and New Zealand, but Todd kept us up to date by email. We have recommended Todd to many of our neighbors without reservation. Todd and his Live Oak team are the best!”

  • “Live Oak did an excellent job of building our addition as well as major renovations to the existing structure. Todd Bradley is very good at creative ideas and solutions to the issues that occur when doing a custom construction job. Live Oak employs an excellent staff. Lisa Simmons for one is very organized and has a good sense of style which we found very helpful while trying to make so many choices. Todd is very selective when choosing subcontractors. We found all of them to be honest, considerate and competent. Some of his subs were stellar. if you plan to build in the Beaufort, SC area, you should sit down and talk to Live Oak. I think you will be impressed.”

  • “This is the third renovation we have done using Todd and Live Oak Builders. His professionalism, responsiveness and overall performance is unparalleled.”

    - B. Tobin, February 2017

  • “Both my wife and I want to thank you (and Lisa) again for another timely and professional job. Your people were always prompt in responding to our needs and timely in completing their work. Thanks again and as before if the need arises for more work on our house, you will be the first person we call.”

    - R. Jacobs, February 2017

  • “We interviewed several prominent builders to construct our dream home in the South Carolina Low Country - selecting Live Oak Builders was a no-brainer. Living hundreds of miles away from the site was supposed to be a major hassle but Todd and his team managed the entire project flawlessly, keeping us informed with weekly status and progress pictures. Other than Mother Nature's (Hurricane Matthew) impact, the project was delivered according to schedule beyond our expectations. Once the home was delivered, Live Oaks made sure every item no matter how big or small was resolved - wanting 100% customer satisfaction.

    We highly recommend Live Oaks for their professionalism, quality and attention to detail."

    - L. Reilly, February 2017

  • “They were always there to answer any of our questions. We thought that building our house living 400 miles away, was going to create a lot of tension, but everything went smoothly and we were at ease knowing that we hired the best builder to do the best work for our needs. Our house is amazing!

    Thank you, everyone at Live Oak Builders!"
