Testimonials

Knob Creek Oral Clinic

If you should ask me what I think of Mitch Cox Companies, I would have to say that they are dream makers. I had a dream of starting an Oral Surgical clinic and Mitch Cox Companies made it a reality. My first contact was with John Speropulos who organized the perfect team to make my dream a reality. Then, Mr. Michael Cannon, the architect moved my dream from my head to drawings. It was like he was reading my mind. Then, Mr. Raymond McBride took those drawings and with his fantastic team of highly skilled builders, coordinated by Mr. Scottie Lane, made those drawings into a physical reality. That physical reality is so much more than my mind could conceive and certainly more than the original dream. In short, Mitch Cox Companies are the “founding fathers” of my emerging small business. I will be forever grateful.”

Wheeler’s Bagels

I’ve built courthouses, jails, and numerous residential homes throughout out my career and I’ve never worked with a company as professional, as on time, as organized, and as helpful as Mitch Cox Companies. After moving to the area from Florida and seeing a for-lease sign, I called John Speropulos, who, with his experience and knowledge of the area, found us an excellent property suited to our needs. I met Jan Meade as I walked into a meeting with him. She was very kind and professional. He introduced me to Raymond McBride who fairly put together an exceptional bid and contract package for the construction and recommended superb and hard-working subcontractors and local vendors. John also introduced me to Mike Cannon who designed our building utilizing the space most efficiently for our operations. Raymond introduced me to David Schools who put together a press release and marketing package for our business. Finally, I met Mitch Cox who was a wise and kind leader. From beginning to end, my experience with Mitch Cox Companies has been 100% satisfying and I have not one complaint.
 
Also, I was very impressed with the mission statement and core values of the company and can assure anyone that this company walks their talk to the tee. I highly recommend them, as I already have been doing, without hesitation or question.

ITT Educational Services, Inc.

John assisted our company with a real estate requirement in Johnson City, Tennessee. He and Mark went above and beyond to get the job done. Their attention to detail and organized presentation of the information I requested always made me comfortable that I had a thorough understanding of my options in the market.
 
Even with our tough parameters, the efforts of the Mitch Cox team ensured that we met our objectives and secured a high quality facility for our students in the Tri-Cities region. I am particularly pleased with the signage that we were able to get at our site. Without John’s assistance, that would not have been possible. I hope that we have the opportunity to work together with the Mitch Cox team again soon and would recommend them unequivocally.
