Knauf-Koenig Group breaks ground on 5 new custom homes


It is rare that a mid-sized luxury home construction company (20 employees) breaks ground on 5 high quality large scale homes at one time, but Knauf-Koenig Group is hitting its stride. Husband and wife team Matt and Gisela Knauf have accomplished many milestones in their 20+ career in custom home building. A record first quarter of 2016 announced 30 custom home projects underway, and these 5 individual projects breaking ground at once are key to their growth strategy.  


From Aqualane Shores to Pelican Bay, these custom homes are sure to be ‘must-see’ new construction with unique design features and amenities in a region that seems to have a bit of redundancy. These 5 homes won’t utilize previous architectural plans, but rather will take beloved trademarks of the Knauf-Koenig Group’s signature looks and bring those to the next level. This will be accomplished by the esteemed architectural talents of John Cooney, principal of Stofft Cooney Architects, and Falconer Jones of Falcon Design Consultants, two talented professionals who have enjoyed a great partnership on past Knauf-Koenig Group projects.


The hallmark of Knauf-Koenig Group’s success is and has been their incredibly skilled, seasoned, and professional team and its ability to work well together. This is a team that includes an accounting department, project managers, superintendents, subcontractors, and one very important differentiator, Matt Knauf involved in every project. Matt does not simply hand off a client’s business to his staff and oversee from a far. He is the glue that binds all of the projects, and superbly manages his time to be a presence both in the field and in the office astutely aware of the progress and status of every Knauf-Koenig Group project. He is a perfectionist in this regard, and it shows in every luxury home which his cohesive and organized company unveils. 


Working together with the clients and the staff, Matt and Gisela Knauf pay close attention to the budget and the quality of each project. During preconstruction, Knauf-Koenig Group provides clients with an early analysis of their project’s materials, equipment, and scheduling that will be implemented during the construction phase. Matt and Gisela are active listeners who let the clients express their needs and expectations, which are then incorporated in a personalized manner to the process of completing each project on time, within budget, and with the highest level of quality.


Respected by the real estate community for providing the most compelling product on the market, Knauf-Koenig Group always delivers. Most importantly, the end user, the homeowner, often raves of their experience. “When we decided to locate to Naples, our number one issue was finding a new home built by the best company. Our decision came down to the people who own and operate the company. After we decided to work with Knauf-Koenig Group, we knew we made the right choice. Without question, the quality and workmanship, especially the wood work is world class,” describes homeowners Michael and Denice Dan. 


Published in local home and lifestyle magazines and well-respected throughout the industry as a solid family-run construction company, Knauf-Koenig Group has enjoyed a steady rise over the past two decades to the top of their sector.
