BUILDING ON A FOUNDATION OF TRUST.

About Matt Harkins

_____Matt was born and raised in Orlando, FL.  He is licensed general contractor and licensed real estate agent.  Matt’s construction experience began in high school where he worked as mason during his summer breaks.   In 1999, Matt began working in the family business, Harkins Development Corporation.  After ten years of working his way from Superintendent to President, Matt became part owner.   Through hard work and a great reputation, Matt helped to grow the business to a $30MM a year construction company.  In March of 2012, Harkins Development Corporations was sold to a large construction company based in Chicago, IL.

_____In August of 2013, this entrepreneur stared his own successful construction business, DL Harkins Construction LLC.  Matt looks beyond project completion and focuses on the relationship with the client throughout the construction process.   Matt strongly believes in active communication and interaction with clients to insure their understanding of all project phases.  Matt believes that once a bond of trust is built, clients feel free to pursue their own businesses without undue concern about their projects.

_____With more than two decades of construction and development experience, Matt leads his team with honesty and integrity and has developed a keen eye for how to run a construction project efficiently and effectively while staying focused on the highest level of customer service.  Matt’s insistence on making the client part of the construction team fosters open communication with the client throughout the construction process.    The General Contracting, Construction Management and Commercial Real Estate Developer enjoys a rich tradition of client interaction which is underscored by his approximately 90% referral rate for new projects.  His clients have ranged from Mom-and-Pop shops to national companies.
