    SPOTLIGHT on Native Construction

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Our latest customer testimonial in the Florida Keys featured Native Construction Contracting Inc. The owner, Brett Ekblom, was born with contracting in his blood and grew up in the Keys. We asked Brett to tell us more about his work, and how he feels about his banking relationship with us. Here's what he had to say:

    "Native Construction Contracting, Inc., was incorporated in 2003. We are a full service General Contractor with considerable experience in the marine environment. We offer complete project management while being an environmentally conscious development company. Our projects range from boat docks, piers, sea walls and beaches to commercial buildings, condominiums, private residences, pools and landscaping. 

    Our goal is to give customers quality craftsmanship. We focus on building relationships with them while we work on their dream project. My banker Christine has the same outlook. She has worked hard at forming our “banker/client” relationship, making it a WINNER! She works closely with my office taking care of all our banking needs. She is always there when we need her and we couldn’t be happier.”

    You can find out more and see many of Brett's impressive projects on his website, or give him a call at (305) 852-3116.

    SPOTLIGHT on Pro Air Heating & Cooling

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Tim & Lori Holtsclaw, owners of Pro Air Heating & Cooling in Lakeland, Florida were recently featured in our testimonial ad campaign.  We loved hearing how their business has blossomed. Here is what Tim had to say in his interview:

    “I started learning the air conditioning business with my father when I was 12 years old. I’ve worked for several companies and over the years learned what was best for the customer. Three years ago, my wife Lori and I opened up our own air conditioning company, Pro Air. 

    We’ve grown tremendously in a short time and since we serve all of Polk County, we are always on the run. Our banker Sofia set us up with their EZ deposit machine so we could make deposits when we got around to it. While having the banking tools we need is important, customer service and a reliable banker are more important. We know from experience that if something happens, our banker will take care of us. Last year we had someone try to use our debit card fraudulently, and our bank spent almost five hours with us, calling the merchants and making sure our money was returned. It’s nice to know we can focus on growing our business and Community Bank of Florida will be there to provide the same kind of service we provide to our customers.”

    If you live in Polk County and need a good air company, call them at 863-683-4499.
