After considering a few contractors in our neighborhood, we chose Greg to work side by side with on the second home we built on the Kona Coast. We handled certain portions of the project and Greg handled other parts that complemented our strengths. Finding this relationship working so well we built a third home with him. Then refurbished a condo and an apartment unit together.

Zilla and I thank you for the high quality of construction and overall for a job very well done. One would not know that the roofs added over the Lanai were not part of the original construction.
The two bathrooms that you totally renovated look great. Space utilization pleased us both. Your design for these bathrooms maximized the area from which you had to work and provided us with attractive, modernized bathrooms.
We acknowledge that you did all of this work while we were back in Maine and not able to oversee the day to day construction. You did keep us very well informed with pictures and e-mails so we felt very comfortable during the entire process.
We appreciate your imagination with design, your guidance in the process and for keeping on budget. Our faith in you was not misplaced as we are very pleased with the results. If you ever need a recommendation, please feel free to use us as a very satisfied customer. Thank you again.

I find Greg one of those refreshing few in the industry whom looks you in the eye, is honest and true to his word always, and the person a client can depend on. Having a licensed contractor that genuinely understands the Architect’s design intent, and is an active partner in bringing that vision to life for the client, is as valuable to me as my clients. I have found his work is completed to a high level of quality and Greg’s focus on details reflects his longstanding dedication to his craft.

As owner/builder, we were involved in the project from inception to completion. The owner/builder designation allowed us to fine tune our home to our needs and to participate in the entire construction process. Greg created a productive working environment by assembling a team of experienced professionals. A stylist was available to assist us in making the many decisions necessary for new construction. We are proud to recommend Greg. Our home was completed on schedule, under budget and our expectations were exceeded. Our project met all of the criteria of the HOA’s CC&R’s and the Hawaii County planning department. We were very fortunate to have found a contractor who is as talented, honest and hardworking as Greg Putman.
Herb Funk and Candy Schultz : New home owners/builders using our “Partnership Program”
Greg Putman has built four homes in Bayview Estates while I served as President of the HOA Board. During the early years of development in Bayview Estates I encountered problems from some builders-mostly work hours, loud radios and site cleanup. As a member of the Design Review Committee I also witnessed some problems with builders not adhering to approved plans. I can honestly say that there was not one problem with Greg’s work that came my way-either on the Board or the Design Review Committee. Partially due to this experience I was very happy to have Greg become a member of the Design review Committee. His professional expertise and attention to detail are invaluable to the DRC. Should I ever decide to build a home in Bayview or elsewhere on the Big Island, Greg’s name would be on the VERY short list of contractors.
I have known Greg and Nancy Putman since August 2007. Greg was project manager for the construction of a custom home in Kailua-Kona, which I subsequently purchased and occupied that year. The home was of superior quality and finishes, compatible with “resort style” homes seen along the Kohala Coast. Since December 2007, Greg was involved in a number of upgrades to the house and I have always found him to be meticulous in his work/attention to detail. He is committed to “excellence” in his finish work, which is always completed on time and within the budget promised. Greg is currently involved in carpentry/kitchen upgrades to a new home I recently purchased in Puako Beach. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wishing to have quality work done on their home. Be it a minor project through to complete home construction.
Phil Steel : Homebuyer and repeat customer
I am a licensed architect with many years of construction experience. I happened to have a chance working with Mr. Putman and visit his other job sites. He is a unique contractor. I have never seen other contractors as organized as he is. He works hard on the job site with his team to make sure a job is done according to the drawing and on schedule. It is not often to come across a capable contractor who is also straight forward and honest. He is a reliable contractor who I have confidence to build a quality building.
