Residential Home Building Services

  • Custom Homes
  • Remodel Projects
  • Green Construction

The Vision Group is unique in that we can streamline the process for building your custom home -- in a smooth, stress-free fashion. Typically, custom home building in Sarasota is a lengthy, stressful experience with many bumps along the way. However, The Vision Group's ability to bypass this problem is centered in our small staff. We are not a large builder with multiple levels that need to be negotiated in order to achieve a result. We can all communicate directly with you, making the process personal and expedient.

Mike Padgett, Kevin Ionta, and Steve Birtwistle are the team that process your home in the field. Suzette processes all the paper work, tout suite. So the result is quick response times to any requests and issues alike. Furthermore, we make sure that the design and selection process is flawless and clear. We are able to do this using the talent and services of our many design partners, like Solstice Planning and Architecture as well as the creativity of April Franciosi of Riveting Designs. Once your home is designed, Riveting Designs will assist you in selecting all the materials and features that will make a house your true home. The rest falls to pro-active attention to details that give Vision our name.

Need your home expanded, weatherized, modernized? All three? The Vision Group can do all that and more. We have extensive experience building and remodeling in the Sarasota area, with long-standing relationships in the Sarasota community, cultivated over many years based on trust and attention to detail.

We are your single source for Sarasota home repair and remodeling; our services are offered all in-house to ensure the highest quality standards and service. We will meet with you to discuss your proposed ideas, go over your home remodeling design, and ensure that you receive the best value relative to your wants and needs. Your vision is our mission.

If you are looking to build a New Home in Sarasota, The Vision Group can take care of all your Home Building in Sarasota needs. Mike Padgett, a lifelong Sarasota resident has been involved in building homes in Sarasota since 1991. Because we are a Sarasota Green Home Builder, we know and understand the needs associated with building sustainable homes in South West Florida’s finest community.

We are one of just a few dedicated Sarasota Green Home Builders who can build a healthy, efficient, and comfortable new home for you. Sarasota Green Building Construction is nothing new to The Vision Group; we have more than 12 years experience in Green Home Building.

While going green comes with its costs, it is highly worth this cost for multiple reasons; our customers save thousands of dollars on their energy bills, and we help protect the environment. The green certification process has increased the selling price of new homes by over 5 percent. However, implementing green concepts in most homes can save the owners enough to pay that extra cost back in about 7 years, through reduced utility bills, a healthier home environment, and tax incentives.
