Outstanding Integrity of Home Building in Florida

Selecting a builder to construct build or renovate your home is one of the biggest financial decisions you may make. While many home builders can build a home, it’s more important to focus on the quality of the home building process. That process includes everything from pre-construction planning to post-construction support.

Our focus on excellent client communication, consistent project management and use of proven building methods set Homes by JMC apart as one of the area’s premier custom home builders.

Homes by JMC can lead you through the custom design and building process and create a dream home that fits your preferences, lifestyle and budget.

Flawless Renovations

Your renovation will seem as if it was always meant to be. It will be integrated seamlessly into your home’s existing style and structure. You will wonder how you ever lived without your new space.

Fun Luxury Features

Spa Bathroom

The bathroom is no longer a simply place to get washed and ready, more people are taking inspiration from luxury hotels and spas to transform one of the most used rooms in the home into a place where they can relax and enjoy a spa-like experience. So, take inspiration from the spa bathroom concept and create your very own space to escape and pamper yourself.

Home Theater

You may not need a home theater, but for a truly fun and exhilarating experience, consider dedicating a room to family entertainment and home theater. Home theater will revolutionize the way you experience movies, music, your favorite TV programs and more.

Cozy Dressing Room

A cozy dressing room is highly coveted addition to a new custom home. Beautifully organized wardrobe storage consisting of built-in racks and shelves, plenty of good lighting, a full-length mirror and a center island with drawers and cabinets. Some comfortable seating is a must and maybe even a glamorous chandelier. Have fun designing your special place for solitude.

Grand Entryway

Wow, your home’s first impression. A prominent entryway can be welcoming and beautiful. Carefully consider you selection of materials, finishes and colors for your front entryway. It is an opportunity to make a good first impression that will set the stage for the rest of your home decor.

Kitchen Luxuries

Are you an avid cook? If so, a well thought out, custom kitchen can make the whole cooking process easier and more enjoyable. Clever luxuries such as smart technologies, a built in coffee bar, a pot filler above the stove, warmer drawers, enclosed trash and recycling, an on-counter appliance garage and a walk-in pantry all can make your kitchen a true joy.

Smart Home

Smart home refers to the way that you can control and monitor your home’s systems. You can remotely check security, control the indoor environment, check on your pets, manage your lighting and so much more. You will wonder how you lived without all these clever ways to make your home safer, more comfortable and fun.

Home Gym

Maintaining a consistent gym schedule is not always easy, especially for those who have an unpredictable lifestyle. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to do your fitness training at home? Whether you have a quiet space for yoga or a full iron pack with high-quality equipment; having exercising gear in your home provides privacy, convenience, and time savings.

Outdoor Living

Not just for fire pits. Luxury furnishings, motorized pergolas and high-end appliances are moving into the backyard patio. A growing number of homes are being outfitted with everything from double sided fireplaces and outdoor gourmet kitchens, open-air family rooms. Have fun designing your outdoor space. Your efforts will provide a valuable long-lasting payback especially here in South Florida.

What folks are saying

“….pays attention to every detail.”


“We have been in our newly renovated house for about 5 weeks now and are loving it! John did an amazing job! He is a perfectionist and pays attention to every detail. He worked tirelessly to make our older home vibrant again. He is well connected in the community to many talented tradesmen. The carpenters, painters and other contractors were top notch. Thank you John for your vision, diligence and perfectionism! So glad we have you as our builder and friend!”

Lawna Afong

“We just cannot be any happier…..”


“John Cherveny with Homes by JMC built our retirement custom home in Palm City, Florida in 2015. The complex details and decisions of building a custom home were almost completely eliminated with all of John’s knowledge and professionalism. John spent hours at our construction site making sure the details and decisions were not only completed promptly, but also done correctly. He listened to our desires and requests, advised us on alternative options and followed through with all of our decisions. We just cannot be any happier with our JMC Home and would recommend John for any residential or commercial construction, not only as a very knowledgeable and professional home builder, but now as our friend after this wonderful construction experience.”

Robert Plotkin

“….in love with our new custom JMC home….”


“To say that we are head over heels in love with our new custom JMC home would be a huge understatement. My husband and I contacted John a few days after buying a lot in Hobe Sound. We were immediately impressed by his knowledge, skills, and wonderful attitude. We wanted someone who was a great home builder, and at the same time, someone who would be easy to work with. We definitely found that in JMC. We had a pretty solid idea of our floorplan and features. We wanted to make every part of the house as different from other homes as possible. John saw our vision, ran with it, and gave us suggestions along the way that we had not even thought of. This is a second home for us, so it was a little difficult living several states away and not being able to see the day to day progress. John sent videos and pictures weekly. Even better, he saw minor imperfections before us and corrected them promptly. I seriously can’t recommend JMC highly enough…if you want a fantastic custom home that will have all of your neighbors in awe, JMC should absolutely be your contractor!”

Shannon Floyd

“John's knowledge, professionalism and quality are second to none.”

“Working with Homes by JMC was a true pleasure. John’s knowledge, professionalism and quality are second to none.

All of my friends and neighbors that have seen our new home are amazed at the beauty and quality in the finished product.

My wife and I are thrilled with JMC builders and give them the highest recommendation possible.”

Robert Sage

“A perfectionist in every sense of the word.”


“We are just days away from the completion of our home by JMC. John Cherveny is a builder of integrity and character. A perfectionist in every sense of the word. He truly loves what he does and he is only satisfied when he knows that his clients are happy! Building a home is hard work but John will be with you every step of the way!”

Sydney Holman

“ fun to work with, while perfecting every minute detail….”


“If you are even thinking of building a custom home, John at JMC is your guy!!! We have been in our house for a little over a week now and I still can’t believe that I live here. It is everything I wanted and more, thanks to John’s suggestions and hard work. He is so much fun to work with, while perfecting every minute detail behind the scenes at the same time.”

Shannon Singletary

“His attention to our wishes, and to every detail of the plan, were unique in this industry.”


“Building a custom home long distance was a challenge we knew we would be accepting when we purchased our lot. However, as serendipitous as it was, John and his crew made the experience one we would do again, but only if we had John as builder! His attention to our wishes, and to every detail of the plan, were unique in this industry. He won’t have a sub on the job who does not adhere to his sense of perfection. We have the home of our dreams, thanks in no small part to Homes by JMC!”

Mary Marcello

“….surpassed our expectations for attention to detail and quality….”


“John built our home 6 years ago and surpassed our expectations for attention to detail and quality. His commitment to perfection and customer focus are rare to find. Even today, well after the contract warranties have expired, I can always count on John to help with those few small issues that arise. Our home looks like it did on the day we moved in, a testament to the workmanship and materials. We highly recommend Homes by JMC.”

Steven Cohen

“The workmanship was excellent”


“I highly recommend Homes by JMC. John is true to his word when he says, he will ensure that he gets it right! We are completing a significant home renovation and all along the way John has provided great ideas to really make the project unique. We were able to “salvage” a sentimental stained glass panel and have it put in to a new custom for our kitchen. The workmanship was excellent and it makes a distinctive addition to our home.”

Nina Nicolosi

“….I continue a long friendship with John.”


“John built our home in Evergreen CC back in 1999, and it remains looking brand new.
I continue a long friendship with John.

Beside from being a man of his word, he is also a great singer”

Michael Cristoforo

“....came in under budget and 2 weeks earlier than planned!! Wow"


“John and his crew @ Homes by JMC did an amazing job with our complete re-model of our house. Not only were they easy to deal with but they came in under budget and 2 weeks earlier than planned!! Wow
Thanks John!!!”

Alec Thyrre

“Homes by JMC is head and shoulders above other home builders!”


“John’s attention to detail is what makes Homes by JMC is head and shoulders above other home builders! Thanks John”

“… this truly was our dream home.”


This letter is long overdue, as we have been in our home built by JMC since the summer of 1996.

The building of our home was something special, especially as it was the first home we had had built together. The project was a great experience from start to finish and came exactly as advertised and then some. As we have both said since we moved in this truly was our dream home.

John, you are very demanding of your people, and this shows in the quality homes that you produce. You worked very hard with us to ensure that it was “our home” that you were building. After we moved in we appreciated how quickly you took care of any minor things that required attention. We have had to do nothing but enjoy our home since we moved in and get nothing but compliments when visited by family and friends.

We have been remiss in not thanking you before now. We would like to take this opportunity not only to say thank you, but also to say that we have and will continue to recommend your houses to anyone.

Peter and Maureen York

“John Cherveny is a builder of integrity and character.”


We are just days away from the completion of our home by JMC. John Cherveny is a builder of integrity and character. A perfectionist in every sense of the word. He truly loves what he does, and he is only satisfied when he knows that his clients are happy! Building a home is hard work but John will be with you every step of the way!

“… our beautiful new home.”


Thank you so much for our beautiful new home. You did a great job and made it all seem so easy. You were right, it is the nicest house on the block. Thanks again.

Tom and Joan Thomas

“John’s attention to detail and his responsiveness was excellent!”


Four years ago, Homes by JMC custom built a beautiful four-bedroom home for my family. John and his staff made entire process (from design to completion) quite “stress-free”- John’s attention to detail and his responsiveness was excellent! The home’s stronger than Fort Knox (it has withstood two hurricanes with no damages) and is very energy-efficient. My wife and I definitely appreciated John’s craftsmanship and his professionalism. We love the home and remain very grateful to John for making our dream come true.

Paul Skyers

“…workmanship is excellent.”


This is a letter of recommendation for Mr. John Cherveny, JMC Contracting Inc., the builder of our home.

We are very pleased with the home that Mr. Cherveny built for us. The quality of the materials and the workmanship is excellent. We have been in our home for over one year now, and we have not had any problems at all. Mr. Cherveny put a lot of extras in our home to make it attractive and very comfortable.

We have had several homes in different areas of the state, and this is truly the better built home.

We will be happy to let Mr. Cherveny show our home to any future customers, if they desire to see the quality of the houses that he builds.

Don and Geri Meadows

“… attention to detail and high standards.”


Thank you for doing such a professional job on our home renovation. We are very happy with our new home, thanks to your attention to detail and high standards. All of your subcontractors did an outstanding job, and we appreciated your giving close attention and supervision to their work. We were especially pleased with the flawless work of your painting crew. Their work surely demonstrated that you get what you pay for! Our kitchen, living area, master bedroom and bath have been transformed.


While undergoing a home renovation is never painless, especially long distance, the results are worth it, and I would be delighted to recommend you to others!

“We appreciate your donation…”


We all want to live in a world where everyone has a decent place to live. By giving a hand up not a hand out, Habitat families are able to acquire the skills, confidence and opportunity they need to eliminate barriers to a better, healthier, more financially stable life.

This vision of a better world we see glimpses of every day when another Habitat homeowner leaves behind a too-crowded, too-expensive, too-unsafe home and moves into a house they helped build. A home that will serve as the foundation for the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to thrive.

We appreciate your donation and thank you for being a part of creating a home that represents a journey to a brighter tomorrow for a Martin County family. Your gift is an investment that never stops giving.

“… thank you for your generous donation…”

What a wonderful surprise!

On behalf of all the students and faculty at the Stuart School of Music, thank you for your generous donation to support our 16th annual concert on June 20th at the beautiful Harriet Himmel Theater in Cityplace for the “Music for the mind” series. The donations from the concert will be used at the Stuart School of Music for scholarships and music education programs. IT was a wonderful concert including pianists, vocalists and a 30-piece string ensemble. We were extremely proud of all the performers who used their musical talents with confidence, poise and assurance. The vocal students sang with style and technical ability—Thanks to their capable and dedicated teacher, Billy Borovina. The Stuart School of Music is proud to have Billy as a respected and admired faculty member. Thank you again, John & Jennifer, for your support of music and the arts for students in this area. Your sponsorship of this annual event has been exemplary, and the Stuart School of Music greatly appreciates your contribution. Thank you again for your generosity and kindness!

Stuart School of Music, Cynthia Kessler

“You have been a hands-on contractor…”


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for building our beautiful new home. You and your office staff made the building process go smoothly. As a retired New Jersey union carpenter, with thirty years’ experience, I, appreciate good work with attention to detail.

You have been a hands-on contractor, attentive to our concerns, mindful of local codes and scheduling the appropriate workmen to keep the job moving with precision and good timing. Your employees reflect your work ethic – hard working and respectful of people and property. We are proud to call your handiwork our new Florida dream home. Thank you again, and we would highly recommend you and your company to any future Clients.

Joann and Rob Chant

“… made the entire process a pleasant experience.”


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for an outstanding job during the construction of our home in Joe’s Point.

Building a home can be quite a stressful undertaking but JMC Contracting Inc, made the entire process a pleasant experience. We didn’t have to go through the process of selecting an architect since we chose your model in Orchid Bay and any custom changes were made in-house. Since many of our months were spent up north in New York the entire construction phase from the lender to move-in date was conducted in a timely manner. We thank you again for a job well done and would highly recommend you to any future potential client.

Helmut & Elsie Kueck

“Trust, confidence and integrity…”


Trust, confidence and integrity were three factors very important to both Linda and I when selecting a contractor for our new home. We both believed JMC could fulfill those requirements, meeting and exceeding our expectations. After selecting JMC, on the recommendation for our architect, JMC earned our trust in the painstaking, systematic procedure necessary for a truly custom home. Their attention to detail and insistence on quality helped us relax during this otherwise stressful time. John Cherveny has that “can do” spirit. He has the confidence that the project will be done right and in a timely manner making our dream a reality. The last, but not the least important quality to Linda and I is integrity. It is especially important in these uncertain times to be dealing with individuals who are honest and not out to waste your money and your dream. JMC under the direction of John Cherveny and assisted by Daria Schulte and Audrey Klemzak, has that quality. We are proud of our home and proud to say it was built by JMC. We would strongly recommend JMC to both friends and family.

Arthur Deschane & Linda Dees

"... very trustworthy, sincere, honest and extremely helpful..."


This letter will certify that I have Known JMC Contracting, it’s owners and employees since 1999. I purchased a custom-built home from this organization in 1999 and can only reflect my utmost pleasure in doing business with them. I found the employees to be very trustworthy, sincere, honest and extremely helpful in all aspects both personal and business related.

Most of all, Mr. John Cherveny, President of this company, followed through on all contractual and promissory made dealings to my total satisfaction. He continues to this day to assist in any questions I have on all aspects of my property.

With the above mentioned, it is without exception and with great enthusiasm that I offer my sincere praise and recommendation in any future endeavor.

Thomas J Salem

“… you build beautiful quality homes.”


Jorge and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how excited we are that we finally sold our home and will soon be beginning the construction process of a new home.

Before choosing Select Homes by JMC Contracting, we looked at many models and talked to a few builders. Out of all the models we saw, we were most impressed by your homes. We can see that you build beautiful quality homes. We also appreciate the reasonable prices of your homes. We are happy to be able to get the house we want at a price we can afford. Doug was also one of the reasons we chose Select Homes. His knowledge and understanding of the construction process have helped us with many decisions. He is also personable and very enjoyable to deal with. We look forward to watching our home be built and we thank you for everything.

Jorge & Angela Diaz

“… professionalism, attention to details …”


Dear John, it is hard to believe that we started working together on the design of our home in North River Shores 10 months ago. The time passed by quickly. The design, planning and construction phases of our home were made easy because of your professionalism, attention to details and concern for our best interest in producing an outstanding product.

Steve & Bonni Cohen

“… most beautiful home in Evergreen …”


As we are sitting in our beautiful new home, I felt it was necessary to write you. A decision to build a new home and find the right builder is a very difficult one. With all the horror stories around, about some builders, we did a lot of research before selecting your company. As the owner of Custom Auto Center in Stuart, I meet many people, including builders. My wife and I had many people to choose from. We spoke to others who had built new homes, and the name that came up with the best reputation was Select Homes by JMC. I believe as in my own business that reputation is everything and that a happy customer will always recommend your business to a friend.

Upon coming into your model and meeting you, we decided that we had found our builder. John, you kept your word, were always pleasant to work with and all your workers were very respectful, from the office help, through the finish painters.

We are now living in our home for one month and I must tell you that everyone in this neighborhood is telling us that we have the most beautiful home in Evergreen Country Club and that is saying a lot! I hope that this letter is instrumental to you in some way, to help you get new customers. As you know, I have given your number to some of my friends. Also, if you need us as a reference, don’t hesitate to call.

Michael & Jean Cristoforo

“… John you did an amazing job!”


To the team at JMC

I want to take this opportunity to express our thanks and satisfaction for the work preformed by you. The renovation of our house at Piper’s Landing was complicated. It was further complicated by the fact that we were not around for on-the-spot decisions. Notwithstanding all of the above, John you did an amazing job! The details we noticed were fantastic, the execution of the work was perfect! Plus, it all came in within budget, no surprises. We would recommend this team for any project- large or small! Thank you all!

Cathy & Stanley Lebowitz

“…superb workmanship …”


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for building us such a fine home. We have been in our home for six months and have had the opportunity to really see the superb workmanship that went into the building of our house. It is obvious that you take pride in your product and make every effort to ensure that the end result is of excellent quality. Not only is our home pleasing to the eye, as are many Florida homes, but is also solidly constructed with above average materials and workmanship. During the construction process we were able to meet many of the subcontractors. We were very pleased with the work performed by all of them and also found them to be very nice people. Once again, your efforts are appreciated!!!

Derek and Maureen Miele

“… all our needs were met.”


We are writing to thank you. We have been living in our new home for about three weeks now. We could not have asked for our first experience with building a home to be any more pleasurable than you made it. Thank you for always taking the time out of your busy schedule to see that all our needs were met, and all of our questions answered. We would be more than happy to recommend you or talk with any potential customers. Thank you for such a beautiful home.

Dennis & Laura Martin

“…surpassed our expectations.”


How time flies! A year has gone by since we have moved into our home here in Orchid Bay. It is with great satisfaction that we are writing this letter of appreciation to you for your professional expertise in planning and building a superb quality hoe for our family. The year after tells us a lot about the quality of workmanship and materials used in the process. We know, we have built two previous homes and by far the home you have built for us has surpassed our expectations.

David & Lisa Garverick

“… my strong endorsement …”


I have had the unique pleasure of knowing the Cherveny Family for over 15 years. It is a strong family that understands the value of hard work, patience and perseverance. I’ve watched the Cherveny Family instill a strong work ethic to all those they touched with the different businesses they have owned. Please accept this letter as my strong endorsement of the Cherveny Family. They epitomize all that is good in families today and are a shining example for others to follow. Please feel free to contact if you have any questions.

Florida House of Representatives Ken Pruitt, Rep 81st District

“… recommend your corporation without hesitation.”


I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the relationship that we endured during the construction of our new home. Having been associated with construction for over 23 years, and in my capacity as the Director of Public Works for Port Saint Lucie, I am acutely aware of the many problems that may be encountered as it relates to personnel, logistics and scheduling. I quickly recognized that your management style positively addressed the many facets that existed during the construction of our home. Your detailed attention to duty was noteworthy. I consider myself to be very production and quality oriented, and I was very impressed with the quality of our home construction and the rapid response in dealing with problems and discrepancies. Building a home is a major undertaking, your performance and our relationship, made this a painless and exciting adventure. In closing, I would like to commend you and your staff for a job well done, and I would recommend your corporation without hesitation to any potential home builder.

Larry & Kathy Thacker

“… attention to detail.”


I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did putting up the Select Center in St. Lucie West. Since I moved my dental practice, my patients haven’t stopped commenting on how nice the building looks, the landscaping and how nice our dental office is. My staff and I really appreciated your follow up during the construction phase, and the attention to detail. It was nice to know that you were the person to contact for help. No run around. We enjoy the view of the lake from work. It creates such a relaxed work atmosphere. Thanks again for the great job. Looking forward to meeting our new neighbors.

Stephen G. Blank D.DS. PA., Carol Dombrowski D.DS.

“… truly a “dream house”.”


Please accept this letter as a not of great thanks and enormous appreciation for the fantastic job which you and your entire staff performed during the construction of our new house located on the South Fork of the Saint Lucie River in Stuart, Florida. Our three-story house is truly a “dream house”. We feel so secure with your construction that we’re begging for our first hurricane in our new house! You are very much welcome to list us as a reference for your solid workmanship. You are also more than welcome to show either the exterior or inferior of our house to any prospective client or to anyone else you might care to do so. Thanks again for a tremendous and professional job well-done.

Gerald Lefebvre

"...nice addition to our property."
