What Our Clients Have to Say

The feedback we receive from our clients communicates to us that we’re achieving our goal of building strong relationships as we build handcrafted homes.

Our relationship with the Rubio family has advanced from one of business to a true friendship.

Tom & Chris Glavine

That gap between what we actually paid for our home with such tremendous features and what people actually think it might cost them - that gap is the real value that Gabriel is able to offer.

Once you meet them, you won’t feel the need to search any further for your perfect builder! It’ll be a ‘one stop shop’ from recommendations for architects, design firms, and all of the other professionals you will need during your building process. And, have no fear! If you already have the rest of your team put together, they will LOVE meeting and working with Gabriel Builders, that is, of course, if they haven’t already! And if they have already worked with them, trust me, they will thank you for bringing them on board!

Gabriel Builders is completely professional, unbelievably competent, and always demonstrated a keen eye for the small details. There weren't any areas in which Gabriel didn't exceed my expectations.

I would be able to, and already have, recommended Gabriel Builders and I think the biggest thing that I can say is that they will listen to you, you can have trust, and that they really care.

The Plating Residence – Greenville, SC

Watch Their Story
We had such a wonderful building experience with Gabriel on our lake house that when it came time to build our new main residence, we didn’t even consider talking with another builder. All of the staff at Gabriel make us feel like we are their only clients and are extremely responsive to all of our needs. I have built several homes, and I know how frustrating the process can become. We have never felt that way about Gabriel, and I would strongly recommend them to anyone who is considering building a home.

The Shaw Residence – Kilgore Plantation

There were many areas where Gabriel Builders went above and beyond. If I had to pick one area where they excelled, it would be their complete dedication to each client. I always felt they truly wanted us to love what they were building. They went the extra mile when it came to follow up. Always making a complete effort to listen to every concern. We have gained much more than a beautiful home. We have gained a friendship with a remarkable family. It was apparent the day we met Gus & Belinda Rubio that building homes was much more than a job to them. It was something they loved to do! It gave them great joy to make our dream home become a reality.

The Sanchez Residence – Carolina Country Club

Gus and Belinda Rubio couldn't be a better team to work with. Our on site managers are phenomenal as well. All around, Gabriel Builders combines expertise with thoughtfulness and easy accessibility. We would definitely recommend them.

The Alkemade Residence – The Cliffs at Walnut Cove

We definitely recommend Gabriel Builders to anyone seeking a high quality renovation. Our project was extensive and encompassed roughly half of our 5400 square foot home. The team at Gabirel brought the experience and resources to realize our dream from architectural drawings to design finishes. We are delighted with our home!!

The Ballards – Private Residence in Greenville

There is always a level of concern when you are building your dream home "long distance." How do you stay in touch with the progress while needing to make a number of critical decisions? The way you do it is to contract with Gabriel Builders. Throughout our project we always knew where we stood as well as what needed to be done.

The Case Residence – The Cliffs at Mountain Park

I’ve had the wonderful opportunity in my life to be a part of developing and building many construction projects from small to large, from residential to commercial. It’s been a privilege to work with many outstanding professionals along the way. When it came to selecting a builder for our personal home we were very particular. After interviewing at least six different high end custom home builders we chose Gabriel Builders and we’re very glad we did! Gabriel Builders has been among the finest people and companies I have dealt with. They are people of integrity and have gone far beyond the norm in their relationship with us. In particular we’ve enjoyed working with Gabe Rubio, the superintendent on the job. The quality of the finished product and Gabe’s attention to detail has been outstanding. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Gabe and others at Gabriel Builders. They have all made this project a joyful experience for us.

The Cerullo Residence – The Cliffs at Keowee Falls South

From the moment that we met Gus and Belinda Rubio as they presented their proposal to us, to the day we moved in to our finished house, and even after, the trust and integrity of Gabriel Builders has shown through. Gus runs his business with an extreme focus on building trust with his customers, and insisting on integrity not only from himself, but from all of the employees in his company. As the head of a global construction firm myself, my expectations of Gabriel were very high. Gabriel Builders exceeded those expectations in every facet of our project. To sum it up, Gabriel is definitely a builder who will deliver a high-quality, beautiful house that will take your breath away. That quality alone sets them apart. However, they don’t just build a house….they build long-lasting customer relationships based on trust, thoughtfulness, and integrity. That puts them in a league of their own, and we will be forever thankful to them.

The Mullen Residence – The Cliffs at Keowee Springs

While constructing our home long distance, I believe the word trust can best describe our relationship with Gabriel Builders. They are not only high-quality builders but wonderful people that have stood by their work long after we closed on the house. We would not hesitate to work with them again in the future.

The Postelle Residence – The Cliffs at Valley

We worked with Gabriel Builders during 2014 and 2015 to have our home built. It was a fabulous experience. They are extremely competent and professional, and our house has surpassed our highest expectations. Gabriel Builders’ team was flexible, offered many suggestions and & advice and “went the extra mile” to ensure that everything was done perfectly. They found and corrected very minor things that we never even noticed. They worked extremely well with the architect and interior designer we selected, often coordinating meetings when we were still living out of state. As promised, they and we did a thorough one-year walk-through. A number of minor issues were identified (more by Gabriel than by us), and they totally fixed every item without any hassle to us. Gus and Belinda Rubio, the owners, treated us like family, and today we consider them friends.

The Safft Residence – The Cliffs Valley

Outstanding job - would recommend them without reservation.

The Sanders Residence – Greenville, SC

Gabriel Builders exceeded my expectations on nearly everything involved in our complicated project.

The Schipper Residence – Greenville, SC

I had the pleasure of working with Gabriel Builders on my lake home. From my first meeting with them I felt extremely comfortable and knew I was in good hands. Gus and Belinda are true professionals at what they do and their son Gabe did an amazing job being project manager for our home. I lived in Rhode Island throughout most of the project and never felt like I didn't know what was going on. I had weekly progress updates and photos which I looked forward to seeing every week. I can honestly say there was not one problem I encountered throughout the entire process. I look forward to working again with them in the future.

The Smith Residence – The Cliffs at Keowee Springs

Their work is of the highest caliber and we are extraordinarily pleased with the workmanship of everything they've completed. The staff is extremely pleasant as well.

The Cliffs at Keowee Falls South

We enjoy our morning and late afternoon reading times together so, depending on the season, we read using the master bedroom sitting area or one of the 3 outdoor decks - all facing Lake Keowee and the Vineyards golf course. As one of our plaques reads, "Put your feet up, take a break, time to relax at the lake."

The Welbourn Residence – The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards

Gus is a man of his word. Entirely trustworthy. His leadership of Gabriel Builders shines like a beacon throughout the organization.

The Whitney Residence – The Cliffs at Valley

We would only build with Gabriel Builders again given the opportunity. We are so happy with their work and think very highly of everyone on their team.
