“In 2005 we bought a plot of land
in Kaligata, Kefalonia through Vinieris real estate. George and Adonis
Vinieris put us in touch with Panagis Tzivras at AEC Group. We described
our vision for a villa on the plot to Panagis. Panagis produced some
initial architectural drawings and estimates for us. At the same time we
called previous customers of AEC as references. They all had a good
experience with AEC.
We gave feedback to Panagis on the
drawings and after a few iterations we agreed on a final plan for the
villa. The plan included the villa, landscaping and the driveway.
Most of this was done through email and over the phone and communication was
excellent throughout the process.
After we agreed on the villa plan,
Panagis produced a detailed schedule of costs, a building works timetable, and
a payment timetable. AEC handled all the paperwork for the building
In early 2006 AEC promised to
deliver our completed Villa to us in early June 2007. They actually
completed in May 2007 and we spent the last week in May with our family in
Villa Velanidi. Our children enjoyed the pool and we finished the final
snagging and furnishing for the villa.
Throughout the process Panagis and
AEC kept us informed of all progress by email, telephone calls and emailed
photos. We had no delays and no surprises. When we wanted some
modest additional work, AEC promptly quoted us a price and completed the work
in the original timetable. We made three visits to the villa during
construction and on each visit Panagis and Fotis, the on site foreman, were
welcome and helpful. They immediately put right any issues and answered
all of our questions.
Overall we had a very positive
experience with AEC and highly recommend them to anybody wishing to build a
villa. At all times they were professional, prompt, and knowledgeable and
always put our interests first. We were lucky to have them and we are
delighted with our villa”.
