"David Silverstein (owner of Copper Leaf) and his team, built us our dream house in 2017! We decided to work with David because of the quality of the homes he has built over years, his collaborative approach and the professional nature of his team. Importantly, David has superb relationships with all of his subs and this enabled him to complete our house on time and within budget (any overages were our elective upgrades). If you work with Copper Leaf, you will find them to be trustworthy and honest. Copper Leaf does not view the job as finished when you move in - any little punch list items are attended to with urgency. It may sound trite, but David Silverstein truly cares about delivering a quality home, and in our case, making dreams come true."

"We highly recommend David and his team. We bought a tiny disaster of a house in our neighborhood in Wellesley and now live in a well-designed, well-built home. We moved in weeks early and on budget!
We took a risk and bought a crumbling small bungalow on a very small lot with the intention of tearing down and building from scratch. David Silverstein and the architect he often works with Dustin Nolan met us at the house and walked us through what they felt, given the many restrictions the town has (which they knew very well), would be possible.
Dustin listened to our desires and designed a beautiful home accordingly. Copper Leaf has a team that works well together which was evident when we had a town hearing to ok the project. At this meeting David arranged to be present: himself, the architect, the lawyer, the surveyor with plans on large displays. David's team passed with flying colors!
David worked with us on our budget and chose finishes within it. We passed the site daily taking the kids to school and got to see the progress up close. We also got to know the different crews Copper Leaf works with as well. David has great painters and landscapers and carpenters and more. They all are nice guys and have attention to detail. Besides that, Peter Tello is a wonderful project manager overseeing the day to day and even some Saturdays! David and Peter are responsive to texts, calls and emails and great coaches. They never told us what to do but gently steered us in the right direction again and again.
We completely enjoyed the entire process. We did get a little lucky not encountering any major snafus, but Copper Leaf made most of the luck for us."

"Dave Silverstein (CopperLeaf) built us an incredible custom home in Wellesley Square. This home was designed with a modern/craftsman exterior and a modern/contemporary interior. The project was completed on time (11 months start to finish) and just slightly (5%) over budget (customizations we added in the latter phases of construction). The home was highly customized on the interior and exterior. We worked with Dave and his architect to customize the exterior (shape, design, material, etc.) and the interior (floorplan, layout, ceiling height, etc.). We were invited to be part of the process with each of Dave's subcontractors, although it wasn't required. For example, kitchen design was important to us so we worked closely with Dave and his kitchen cabinetry person. Woodfloor staining/color was important to us so we worked closely with Dave's flooring person. Windows, same thing. You have the ability to be as involved or not involved as you choose in a custom home build with Dave's team. Most importantly, the project ran like a well oiled machine. The subcontractors were all friendly, timely, reasonably priced...and it was clear David had both a working and personal relationship with them. Those relationships are critical and NOT the norm. We have never had a home visitor that did not compliment us on the unique quality, design and crafttsmanship of our home. Furthermore, we had full transparency on pricing with monthly copies of all bills and receipts. We feel very lucky to have worked with someone who we could trust...that also delivered an amazing product."

"Last year we relocated our family to Boston and purchased a home built
by Copperleaf Development. The craftsmanship and design of our home is
beautiful, stylish, but also highly functional. David and the members of
his team are enjoyable to work with and very resourceful, which we truly
appreciate being new to the area. I strongly recommend David Silverstein
and Copperleaf Development."

"I highly recommend David Silverstein and Copper Leaf development. We recently purchased a new construction home built by David. The house is absolutely beautiful, and we love it. The house is very well designed, and is both functional and beautiful. We are very happy with the layout, design, detailing, energy efficiency, choice of appliances, quality etc. David's attention to detail was obvious. As we purchased the home prior to the completion of construction, we did have an opportunity to customize. David was very easy to work with, and was a great resource in helping us choose things such as paint color, carpet, lighting fixtures etc. He consistently provided us with excellent advice. He is very easily reachable via email and phone, and was always very quick to respond to questions. We found him to be very honest and he followed through on everything he promised, often exceeding our expectations. We were also impressed that he stayed on schedule, and in fact, completed construction ahead of schedule. After we moved in, he even visited us a few times to make sure there were no unanticipated problems / concerns. Overall, I would give David my highest recommendation!"

"We are very happy with the work done by Copper Leaf Development & David Silverstein. They designed and built our home and were a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. David and team are honest, hardworking, fair and have a real attention to detail and quality. They communicated with us throughout the process and were great about listening to our ideas and incorporating our design choices. They delivered the home on time and since we moved in have been very responsive about any issues (all minor) that have surfaced. We have already referred several friends to David and team and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to build or renovate a home."

"Working with Copper Leaf Development over that past 5 years has been both enjoyable and enthusiastic. As a designer at Tiles Plus More with 30 years of kitchen and bath designing under my belt I have never worked with a more "likable" guy. All David's homes have exceptional craftsmanship and are not your cookie-cutter home. The Metro-West area has been booming with remodels and new home builds. Copper Leaf blows away his competition with extras and and healthy allowances. His team is well organized and fun to work with. I am looking forward to future projects."
