    Look no further

    We recently completed a new build in Paradise Valley, Arizona under the guidance of the guys over at Sticks and Bricks Development. S & B was there every step of the way to help us bring our dream to life and deliver high a quality product at a competitive price. When selecting a general contractor and/or development partner trust is paramount and we can say without a doubt S & B is at the top of the general contractor / development partner list in Arizona. Not only did S & B execute on what we designed as a team but they proactively helped value engineer the project in order to look out for the client’s bottom line. Look no further than S & B as we have done the homework for you.

    Changed the Standard

    “The Sticks & Bricks Team have changed the standard for General Contracting. Their work was “on time” and “on budget” with exceptional quality and great communication throughout the project. They truly have your best interest in mind because they treat your house like it is their house. We would recommend S&B to anyone!”

    Far Surpassed Expectations

    My husband and I have owned our home for close to 6 years now. In that timeframe, we have undergone several major renovation projects, in addition to numerous small ones. Needless to say, we have had the opportunity to work with a variety of contractors throughout the course of owning this property and others. Sticks and Bricks Development far surpassed our expectations from beginning to end on our last project. JD and his team were professional, effective and thorough. Josh, our project manager did a great job of keeping the lines of communication open and any issues were worked through efficiently. We were provided with updates every couple days so we always knew the exact timelines of the project. Working with their network of vendors was such an easy process as well. The selections we were provided were of top quality and fair price points, and in the end we ended up with a beautiful final product. Thanks for all of the hard work and we look forward to working with Sticks and Bricks on our future projects.

    the BEST experience working with Sticks & Bricks and their team of professionals.

    We have had the BEST experience working with Sticks & Bricks and their team of professionals. We had our kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry room remodeled and we are thrilled with the finished product.

    Sticks & Bricks helped us with the design process, suggested budget friendly options, managed the day to day operations, kept our house as clean as possible, and communicated what would be accomplished each week.

    The project was completed ahead of schedule and the craftsmanship is amazing. JD and Antonio were with us every step of the way and the communication during the project was outstanding.

    I could not be more impressed with this group of guys and the work they have done for us. We highly recommend Sticks & Bricks and look forward to our next project.

    Full service, high quality, professional, attention to detail.

    Full service, high quality, professional, attention to detail, dedicated follow through–are only a few qualities to describe JD Dwyer. He develops genuine relationships with clients during the buying process, and then treats them like real friends after the sale. He deserves tremendous accolades for his beautiful homes and commitment to quality. He has deep knowledge of the building trade and only hires the best contractors. A man of his word. I would build again with him in a heartbeat.

    I was shockingly surprised, and delighted to discover this rarity in the industry

    Over the last couple of months, I have had the pleasure and privilege to work with JD Dwyer and Antonio Marquez, AKA Sticks and Bricks Development. Having been in the residential real estate business in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley for more than 23 years, I was shockingly surprised, and delighted to discover this rarity in the industry.

    Never did they deviate from what was promised. Their commitment to excellence, and their impressive work ethic was evident throughout the process. As a result, my buyer clients whom I represented in this transaction are now the lucky owners of a gorgeous, timeless, and magnificent estate in Paradise Valley that exudes the quality craftsmanship, borne from the pride of S&B’s dedication to their product.

    I would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend Sticks and Bricks to anyone with the most discriminating standards

    Extraordinary – sums up JD and his team. Not only in design insight and the trades he brings to the project, but as an individual. JD is the by far the the most trustworthy person you can meet. I constantly hear the horror stories that people go through with GCs. With JD, I never had a moment that I felt uneasy with his ethics. In the end, my house was done under budget and on time. JD has the intelligence and insight to take seemingly impossible concepts and turn them into reality. Not a day goes by that we do not look at our house and feel incredibly thankful that we were lucky enough to have hired JD. There is nobody that I would consider recommending more than JD and Sticks & Bricks Development.
