Mark made our dream home a reality. He takes your vision and adds a new layer that makes it even better. Mark was always a pleasure to work with and has a refreshing "can do" mentality — he will usually find a solution for any challenge. Mostly, Mark is among the best in the business when it comes to building beautiful custom homes.

Whatever you hear about contractors is true EXCEPT when it comes to working with Mark. For example:
- He does know how to manage a budget
- He's well organized
- He's great with coming up with ideas to improve the plans
- He has subcontractors that show up when when they say they will
- He follows through on all phases of the project
- He knows how to work through all of the processes (i.e. city planners, engineers, architects, etc.)
- He's there for you after construction is finished
- The end result is a top-quality project that is completed on time
Building a home can be a very stressful experience; you will want someone like Mark to keep it under control. We would gladly work with him again and would highly recommend him to any prospective clients.

As a single middle-aged woman wanting to build a home in Avila, the task seemed daunting — until I met Mark Sullivan.
Mark offered support, wisdom and honesty to a fault. He made the experience fun, educational and exciting at every phase of the construction. His relationship with my architect was professional and interactive, providing a solid team with my best interests at the core. I am privileged to have worked with such an upstanding individual and heartily recommend his expertise, personality and workmanship. Because of Mark and his attention to detail, cost control and on-time completion, I have a home of my dreams.

Mark built our house and worked on a recent project to add an outdoor kitchen, pergola and terraced patios to the back of the house. The recent addition was an extremely complex design in a small space with a steep slope. We found Mark to be very trustworthy and willing to work with us whenever issues arose. The final product is really beautiful, and Mark’s workmanship and attention to details is a big reason that the project was a success. We are very happy that we hired Mark and would recommend him to others.

We worked with Mark on a home in Fresno in the early '90s but did not know he had moved to the Central Coast. In early 2003 we began looking for a contactor to do a complete tear down and rebuild. We interviewed several contractors and were having a hard time finding someone we were comfortable with. By chance, Mark was recommended to us and we met up again and hired him to build our home in Cayucos.
I cannot say enough about this man. He has always been honest, punctual and thorough and has kept us posted on all elements in a professional manner. I would honestly rate him a 10 out of 10.
We are vey happy to have reconnected with Mark for our home. There is no question I would recommend him to others and work with him again.
We are very pleased with the entire construction process and the response and consideration showed us. We will highly recommend Mark Sullivan Custom Homes to all prospective clients. We love our home. Thank you.

We can make an enthusiastic recommendation for Mark. His many years of experience in building high-end custom homes has positioned him to be very helpful in guiding us and making constructive suggestions regarding every aspect of the building of our new home. He makes it a point to be aware of our sensibilities and has been extremely flexible in the changes we have requested. He has very good taste and judgment and we frequently consult him with design decisions.
He is very conscientious and trustworthy and has really kept the project on task. He has excellent subs and good working relationships with all of them. He has valuable resources for materials and ideas. He will expect you to have a firm concept of design elements so you don't slow down the project or inflate the budget. We would suggest you have a design consultant if you have trouble with decisions or don't have the time to do the research. The big snags in our building have been our own changes or being delinquent in our choices.
Mark really wants you to be happy with your home. He takes tremendous pride in his work. We don't think you would regret hiring him.
We highly recommend Mark Sullivan. He did a great job of keeping our new home
construction project on schedule and within budget. We appreciated his integrity and
responsiveness. He is knowledgeable, professional, and a pleasure to work with. If
we had it to do over again, we would definitely choose to work with Mark."
