Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW

EDitor's UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Dunhill Development for its full commitment to quality customer service.

Ripoff Report's discussions with DUNHILL COMPANIES have uncovered an ongoing dedication by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any concerns. DUNHILL COMPANIES listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

Dunhill Builders' founder and owner, Charlie Crovo, knows that the building industry is highly competitive. The Dunhill Team continuously sets themselves apart with their commitment to 100% client satisfaction. Charlie realized early in his career that good communication was paramount to a successful project. From the very first meeting with a prospective/new client, Charlie listens intently to their desires & expectations. When Charlie and his client are ready to go to contract he is careful to hash out all details with a realistic budget and timeline. When and if issues or changes arise, Charlie and his team pride themselves in being highly responsive. Finally, the finishing touches on a building project are never overlooked. On the contrary, this is where the Dunhill Team shines. The Dunhill Team will not stop making adjustments and improvements until all the finishing touches are perfect.

Additionally, future clientele should note that Dunhill Development is both licensed and insured.

dear concerned quill

AUTHOR: karma - (United States of America)

Since you are defending Crovo Mr. Concerned maybe you are involved with him. Please use you real name!! You mention God...how about the commandment thou shall not steal, and covet thy neighbors wife. Yes Crovo and Jill have been served, they will be back in front of a judge where they belong telling their lies. They are so used to being sued, I guess it doesn't even phase them. They both belong in jail. Posting this on the internet is done to warn people of these sick people to protect them. Also it brings contacts, victims of the Crovo's like Diane who they stole $850.000 dollars from. Yes I did go into court that day and the Crovo's settled because they are blatant thieves. So sad. May God have mercy on your soul. Very sad indeed.

Looking for "Crovo's rebuttal"

AUTHOR: Concerned Quill - (USA)

I am sorry Jenny. I was looking for the rebuttal from Charles and do not see it. If you are stating that I am he, you are incorrect. Concerned Quill is my name that I write under and have published under. You do not have the right to misrepresent me or any part of my name in your quest. I can and will defend that in any forum.

I did look into this and was able to determine the property you speak of through the extensive inflammatory postings you have devoted so much time to. In todays economy most are lucky to have any type of recovery from an investment
with real estate investment at the top of the list.

I am perplexed at your words typed with such conviction and yet there are no legal proceedings with your name on them as the plaintiff. If your words are written with the intention that all readers should comprehend them as truth, then where is the prosecution followed by the traditional guilty finding. We live in a country that teaches us that all are innocent until proven guilty but somehow you have decided to take another path here with the expectation that all will just believe what you write. Perhaps your thinking is just that if you put it on the internet it will make you all powerful and render victims incapable
of proper defense. Maybe you missed the class that told you due process allowed all a fair and impartial forum that allows the truth to be told. Some will turn to other methods and surpass what we all have a right to because they want to
use a forum to impact another individual, family, or business the way they want. This is usually proven to be because the statements are without merit, false, and or exaggerated and if tried in court would most definitely render all comments libelous and defamatory.

Do unto others as you would have done unto you. When others act in a way that causes you harm, let God or the legal system deal with it. Cyber bullying only makes you look bad and desperate for attention. The audience you seek is smarter than that.

Again, my experience with Charles and his family has been very positive, on the other hand, thus far, my experience with you has only caused me to come to this conclusion henceforth the aforementioned.

May God help you find peace in your heart and life that you may put this behind you.

May God have mercy on your soul.

Do not believe a word of Crovo's rebuttal

AUTHOR: Jennifer Prada - (United States of America)

Check with Barnstable County Courthouse, vendors, and his "family" history. Crovo's have been stealing for generations. Charlie is probably the worst and most evil person I have ever come across. The information and victims I have come across since he robbed me is unbelievable.

Diversity in thoughts and or actions.....

AUTHOR: Concerned Quill - (USA)

I came across this post by accident and found myself appalled and yet quite perplexed. The words used to describe this person, his business, and his family are quite convicting and intended to cause hurt and damage. Although our constitutional right is to exercise our free speech liberties, the tactics one will choose at times can be demonstrative of desperation to be heard in any forum. Social media is becoming, more and more, the chosen path to air such emotion and most often done so without consideration for the true depth of exposure for all parties involved.

Firstly I look at this posting and I think, I know these people mentioned in this forum.They are local business owners. Charlie is a family man with a wonderful wife named Jill and two beautiful children.

I have had many business dealings with Charlie and his wife on multiple facets. The interaction with them has never been anything less than professional, courteous, humorous, and enjoyable to say the very least.

Dunhill companies, Weichert realty, Dunhill Landscapes, and any associates to include sub- contractors and vendors pertaining to Mr. Crovo, family and companies, have provided services to myself on many occasions of the past several years. He built my first and second house and I am positive that if he is available when I am ready, he will build my third house. For more than ten years I have utilized and referred Charlie, Jill, and Dunhill respectively, and have never had anything less than gratitude and remarkable success.

My financial arrangements, payment structure, progression dates, and expectations were not only met but exceeded on all levels. This is only to be echoed by my friends and colleagues of more than a dozen individuals and families that I brought directly to Charlie over the years. When I met Charlie and gave him an opportunity to bid on my home I was very impressed with him and his associates. My wife and I did an extensive background check and research on him. We also did it a second time when he built my second home (less than 5 years ago). This examination included but not limited to their financial stability and credit, relationship with sub-contractors, meeting deadlines, relationships with customers before and after a project, and the standings of accounts with local businesses they use for raw materials to build a house. The reputation based on results was remarkable to say the least.

We based our decisions and actions on what we learned and the way we learned it. I can only suggest to any person or persons that find this.that you pursue your endeavor the way we did, with an open mind, and you will not be disappointed.
