The Hicks Partnership Inc.
Willian R. Hicks, B.Arch., MRAIC, OAA


We have worked on several projects through the years and I thought it time to provide you, in writing, a letter of recommendation and testimonial of the high caliber of builder you are.

The projects that we have worked together on have proved your professionalism and dedication to clients for homes that are built right and well.

Your level of experience and attention to detail far exceeded expectations and we hold your work in high regard. Your skill is recognized in the community and we commend you in fine built homes.

It would be my personal pleasure to speak to anyone about your work and skill.

This reference letter is written with respect to the excellent work Frank Filice, his son John, and daughter-in-law Denise did in designing and building our home. When we began this project we naturally were concerned that it would be done in a professional and timely manner. Where most contractors I've experienced under deliver, the Filice family over delivered to the extreme. They were highly professional and responsive to all of our family's needs. Their positive work spirit and flexibility made the entire building experience a delight.

The building was materially completed on time permitting our family to move in without disruption. Any discrepencies were quickly dealt with and their after sales support commitment to ensuring we were content in our new home was and continues to be outstanding.

This is a family who truly takes pride in their work, and is indeed a pleasure to work with. If I were to build another home, without hesitation I would ask the Filice family to build it for me.

If I can be of any further assistance, please feel free to contact me.

Karen and Harold, Oakville, ON


We have had the pleasure of working with Eastlake Homes over the last year as it helped us to design and then build our new home in downtown Oakville. Because the company is a small, family-run business, it is impossible to refer to it without talking about its players: Frank and John Filice. We have found them to be exceptional in every way. Throughout our working relationship, they have proven themselves to be professional, knowledgeable, accessible and friendly. They dedicated themselves to constructing a quality home with impeccable workmanship and they delivered it on time. Not only were they completely accessible throughout the process (often working weekends to help us choose materials or review plans), but they have continued to make themselves available long after closing. In short, our experience with Eastlake has been entirely positive and we recommend them as builders without hesitation.

Aaron and Jean, Oakville, ON


It is with pleasure that we write this recommendation letter on behalf of Eastlake Homes.

Having never built a home previously, we felt that it would be an arduous task. John, Frank and Denise Filice were very helpful in guiding us through the numerous decisions and choices that were necessary to make our dream home possible. They made the process much easier than we had expected. When issues arose that were usually minor, they were quick and efficient at handling any concerns we had.

The quality of the craftsmanship and workmanship, including the multitude of available selections from flooring to cabinetry to hardware was exceptional.

Eastlake Homes recognizes what it takes to build not only a quality home, but a "luxurious" one. Old World craftsmanship married with modern technology and skill underscore their approach to home building.

Purang and Afsoon, Oakville, ON


We recently moved into our new home which was built for us by Eastlake Homes. We love it! This is our first custom-built home and we must say, the overall experience was fabulous.

We had expected a difficult time based on some of our friends' experiences with other builders. However, Frank, John and Denise made building our home a complete joy. They were attentive to the smallest details and were always available to address our slightest concerns. Furthermore, they were extremely flexible and accomodating to any changes, and helped us achieve our expectations and goals for our home.

We simply adore our new home, and if we ever consider building another house, it would have to be with Eastlake Homes again.

We highly recommend Eastlake Homes and know that you'll be very happy with the final results.

Kimberly and James, Oakville, ON


Eastlake Homes built our new house in the summer of 2000. Overall, we were very pleased with all aspects of the building and sale of our home. Everyone we dealt with at Eastlake was very courteous and helpful. Any questions or requests that we had through the building process were handled quickly and always to our satisfaction. We were made aware of the status of the house and the next steps required to ensure completion on time.

We are extremely pleased with the quality of the workmanship. The various suppliers Eastlake uses provide excellent quality and service. The companies which did the cabinetry and tile flooring are most notable in the quality of their products.

Follow-up after the close of the house has also been very good. The few problems that have arisen have been fixed quickly and to our satisfaction. A representative from Eastlake will always call to confirm that a problem has been fixed and that we are satisfied with the work.

Eastlake Homes built us a lovely home that we plan to enjoy for a long time. Frank, John and the members of their team made the building process a relatively smooth and enjoyable one. We would highly recommend using this company.

Louis and Louise, Toronto, ON


We have hired John Filice twice over the last ten years on two different homes to add on a major addition to the existing house. John is very professional when he is required to work with an architect or the interior designer to complete the job. I would not hesitate to call John again to either build a home for me, or to do another major addition/renovation. I have not heard of many people using a contractor for the second time for a major project at their home. That in itself speaks volumes.
