12. Company philosophy:?

"In 2001, I combined a refined vision with a strong passion, and launched Koogler Homes Inc. These characteristics allowed me the great opportunity to pursue perfection in the building industry.

"Today, our building company has emerged as an industry leader and I'm very proud of our many accomplishments. It's truly a great honor to be considered as a general contractor in the luxury home market. I take great pride in my performance as a leader and strongly believe in the art of giving and working beyond the call of duty.

"I believe success is best defined by experience, knowledge, performance and character. At a young age, my father introduced me to the field of construction and the tools needed to be successful. I then launched my first and only construction company in Iowa. For 25 years my passion grew with each commercial and residential project. This experience allowed my to learn construction at the ground level. My passion to be the best continues today, now in Florida, in my management of projects, employees and subcontractors. I very much appreciate the needs of all these who make this dream come true.

"The importance of knowledge and experience is only superseded by character and integrity. It is with great pride that I've worked very hard to make both an integral part of my daily activity. In the world of construction, it is these attributes that allow every client to feel confident that their best interest is always at the forefront.

"Aside from my family's successes, the greatest sense of accomplishment continues to be the completion of every custom home. My vision on every project defines our path as a company and our commitment to every client. This vision combined with my sincere passion has allowed me the opportunity of a lifetime. My passion for construction will forever carry my pursuit of perfection, and I'm very fortunate to have sustained a livelihood at the same time."

-Don H. Koogler, founder and president
