Working with True North was a "TRUE" joy! Not only is Matt a talented builder who employs outstanding sub contractors, but he was on site every day. Both he and Elisabeth treated our build as if it were their own home. Their communication, commitment, enthusiasm, and caring were unparalleled. We feel very fortunate to have worked with such a professional and dedicated team.

We are greatly pleased to give this testimonial for Matt Scharf of True North Building Co, LLC. Matt began building our home in St. James Plantation in the Fall of 2010 and completed it in February of 2011. However, prior to moving to North Carolina from Upstate, New York, we had been corresponding with Matt and several other builders for many months. During this initial process, it was always Matt who either returned our phone calls or emails within a day’s time and sometimes within hours. The responses to our questions were always thorough and easy to understand. This was the first characteristic that distinguished Matt from the others.

Upon moving to St. James, the decision of choosing a builder began full scale. While developing a house plan, Matt was more than willing to meet with the designer and make sure all specs were covered, even before any contract was signed. This was a tremendous help to us as we had never gone through this process before. This was another characteristic that distinguished Matt from the other builders.

We soon came to realize that Matt was everything a person could possibly hope for in a builder. He is a pleasure to work with, takes his job very seriously and is always looking out for his clients’ best interest. Matt has the highest integrity, always doing what is right, and has an unmatched work ethic. Whether you are building long distance or on site, Matt is there every step of the way to ensure you are a satisfied customer. He will get the job done efficiently, on time, and the way you expect it.

We are tremendously happy and satisfied in our beautiful coastal Carolina home that Matt built for us. Please feel free to give us a call or stop by if you are in St. James.

My husband and I built our home in St. James with True North Building Company. We chose True North because of their reputation as a custom builder, attention to detail and the quality of their work. Our experience from the start was positive and easy. The owner, Matt Scharf, drove us around in his truck to pick out a lot. He gave us honest advice and a lot of one-on-one time. He guided us through what could have been an arduous process and made it very easy.

We visited many homes that he built and the owners all had positive praise for his craftsmanship, integrity, and easy going manner. Matt, his staff, and his subcontractors were all professional hardworking individuals. We would highly recommend True North for anyone considering building a new home. More importantly, this company will make your experience an amazing event!

If we were to build again, True North would be our first call.

It was a pleasure to work with Matt and Elisabeth in building our dream home in Southport. Judi and I have built four homes in the past 35 years, two I have personally contracted and two with builders.

What impressed us with Matt and Elisabeth was their ability to visualize our desires. I was concerned living at the beach that the home would be strong enough to withstand wind and storms. As I watched Matt’s crew and with my knowledge of the building codes here Matt oversaw all the super structure framing and the extra efforts to afford the best strength especially with "tying the roof" to the structure. Judi and I are extremely pleased at the attention to detail inside with the moldings, paintings and installation of the built in appointments. We have been in the house now for 30 months with no floor creaking nor discovering any imperfections. Our house is about 3000 square feet and we continue to get compliments from neighbors and folks driving through the neighborhood. One other point is that if Matt discovers that something was not properly painted or finished he gets his subs to correct it. Matt and Elisabeth take pride in what they build and it shows. We have not had any minor or major problems in the work completed. If we were building another house then we would choose True North, hands down.
