"Mark Trabucco is an extraordinary homebuilder. He has an unusual combination of professional skills and personal integrity which I have not seen in other residential builders. I would recommend him unqualifiedly."

"I have been fortunate in my life to work with some excellent builders, but you have exceeded our expectations throughout the entire project. You have shown a very personal interest in every aspect and every detail. I think it is fair to say that you have been more demanding of perfection than I could ever be and that is saying a lot.
Over the years I have found that many builders are good mechanics. They can execute a set of plans with perfect integrity as the architect and owners had intended. You bring much more than that to the project in terms of imagination and vision that goes far beyond what can be put on paper. We have found you to be uniquely suited to orchestrate that vision while allowing us to feel very much a part of the creative process. You have assembled a remarkable team and you have motivated them to give us what has to be their finest work.
We feel very fortunate to have had this opportunity to work together. The comfort and enjoyment we find in our home in the many years to come will be the result of your hard work. If we had to do it over again, you would be our builder."

"Working with Mark Trabucco has been a pleasure and has turned into a great friendship.
Mark far exceeded his contractual obligations. His input in the architecture and the design of our home was instrumental in perfecting our vision, and was much appreciated. His constant availability, and the heart he put into our project can now be felt and recognized throughout the house, in the many details he added. In simple words, the house wouldn’t have been the same without him. We are so grateful to him for bringing together a terrific group of sub-contractors. They all proved to be very efficient and work well together.
I have built houses before, but never was it as seamless and enjoyable an experience as the one you built for us."
— Pierre J.
“We have great appreciation for Mark Trabucco’s expertise in pulling together a beautiful home. We feel so very fortunate to have found a high-quality house already built and landscaped that so closely fills our needs. The attention to living space, design of architecture and color make everyday a pleasure just being here.”
— Robert and Dianne B.
"Building a large home in Montecito while living in Los Angeles is no small feat. Mark not only built our home in a timely manner, but with exceptional quality while making the process pleasurable.
We have all heard the horror stories of building your own home. Mark’s integrity an honesty take the horror out of the equation.
I am proud to say Mark built one of the finest homes in Montecito for my family.”
— Lonnie K.
“The only thing better than working for Mark Trabucco is to have Mark Trabucco work for you. After many years of doing the interior design work for many of Mark’s spec homes, it came time for my husband and I to build a home for ourselves. After observing the quality and care Mark put into his work, his energy and organizational skills, the choice was obvious; almost. The only reservation we had was that over the years we had developed a close friendship with Mark and his family and did not want to jeopardize this. Because of Mark’s communication skills and his caring attitude, our relationship both in a business sense and personally, only improved throughout the course of our project.
We are thrilled with our new home! Only Mark could have built such a custom home in under five months. He works closely with all the subcontractors. They respect him and want to stay on schedule with him. One of Mark’s greatest strengths is his creativity and aesthetic eye. He has a lot of experience with many different styles of architecture. His design input proved to be invaluable on our house. Some of our favorite features in our home were Mark’s idea.
When the occasional problem did arise, Mark confronted the situation and dealt with it accordingly. He kept us well informed throughout the project. He was always there to listen and offer advice. We highly recommend Mark Trabucco as a contractor and builder.”
— Michael and Erin B.
"The entire experience of constructing our new home, from start to finish, turned out to be both pleasant and exciting for our family.
Mark was involved in every aspect of planning and building our beautiful home. He provided invaluable guidance, information and advice as we made our land purchasing decision. Mark was an integral part of the initial planning phase with our architect and designer to ensure that we could design and build within our tight budget.
Mark’s ability to remain within budget while still building an exceptional home exceeded our expectations. It is without hesitation that we highly recommend Mark to prospective clients. We are delighted with our home and with Mark’s role in making it all come together."
— Bill and Jessica G.
"We would highly recommend Mr. Trabucco for the construction of your home. His background in development and construction, as well as his high level of professionalism, make him one of the most highly qualified home builders in this area."
