In 1951, A. Vernon Allen started the company, which would become one of the most established and finest custom homebuilders in Naples. Mr. Allen, a Kentucky native, moved to Naples and brought his trade to, what was at the time, a small fishing town. His mission was singular: to build only the very finest custom residences by combining unparalleled customer service with uncompromising attention to every detail.

During the ensuing years, AVA has maintained Mr. Allen’s focus on the zealous pursuit of quality, luxury and craftsmanship. We are very proud of our reputation for combining unequaled customer service and response with attention to detail and the finest craftsmanship in the Naples market.

Today, our company is directed by Ryan Benson and Andy Bringardner, whose expertise in construction and management maintained our reputation as the builder of the finest single-family custom residences in Southwest Florida. While we remain the builder of choice in Port Royal, we have built exceptionally luxurious residences in some of Naples’ other exclusive enclaves as well, including Old Naples, Royal Harbor, Park Shore, and The Moorings. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our company, our product and our processes for ensuring excellence.

We carefully select and retain only the most talented and dedicated craftsmen. Many members of the AVA family have worked for our company for more than a quarter of a century. Every member of our staff takes great personal pride in our company’s reputation as the builder of choice for those who will not settle for second best.

On every assignment, we are committed to assembling only the most talented team of employees, subcontractors, and suppliers. Using only the highest levels of skill and finest materials, we are proud that many of our homes have been featured in a variety of local, regional and national publications.
