greatest strength is that she retains an American
attitude toward client service, combined with a
Mexican understanding of what is possible and what
is not. She bridges a gap that is almost impossible
to do for someone who wants to build a home in a
foreign country, and she bridges that gap with great
competence. I was thoroughly satisfied and recommend
we first started thinking about building in San
Felipe we were very concerned about finding a contractor
that we could trust and communicate with. We found
BJ on the San Felipe web site, made contact with
her and set up a meeting. At this meeting she inspired
our confidence and trust and throughout the building
of our home she proved that she deserved that confidence
and trust. We have never regretted using BJ's services
for one minute and if we were building another house
here we would sign her up to manage it.

choosing a construction manager, TRUST was a key
issue for us. Without a doubt, you can trust B.J.
to protect your interests and deal fairly with all
issues and concerns that may arise. Her services
and advice proved to be indispensable. She took
much of the worry and concern out of building a
home in Mexico. From the architectural plans and
drawings, to contract preparation, to funding, and
to building completion, she was there every step
of the way. Her word is her bond. The quality of
our home is A-1, and she stands behind her work.
We truly don't know how we would have tackled our
homebuilding experience in Mexico without B.J. Sweitzer!"
Lorne and Patty Cosman
BRAVO for you Betty. The
exterior pictures and literature are super and what
a treat to see all the testimonials to your hard
work. Being contractors for so many years ourselves,
we can appreciate - even more than the common Joe
- the dedication and hard work as well as the pride
you must have in bringing such beauty to your beloved
area. Our CONGRATULATIONS and respect.

Thank you so much for
all the great work you and your crew did on our
new home in the Baja. I was surprised at how quickly
it went from drawings to final cleaning, and I’m
a builder myself. Of course, the neighbors were
even more surprised than I, because they have
seen other houses in the surrounding area, (built
by other builders), take much, much longer. I
especially want you to know that I appreciate
the attention to detail that went into our house.
The tile work turned out better than I ever expected,
and you saved the living room with your paint
matching ideas. Thank you for all the effort that
went into this home and the follow-up for the
things I would never have considered without your
input. We love the new house, and look forward
to seeing you again, next time we’re there.

B.J. HAS BEEN GREAT
TO ME! ALTHOUGH MY PROJECTS TO THIS DATE HAVE
BEEN SMALL, SHE HAS TRIED HER BEST TO APPLY "NORTH
OF THE BORDER" CONSISTENCY AND QUALITY IN
AN AREA THAT "MAÑANA" CAN HOLD
YOU TO A SNAIL'S PACE. WHEN I MEASURED MY KITCHEN
AREA FOR CABINETS, I WAS SHOCKED TO FIND LESS
THAN AN 1/8 OF AN INCH DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FLOOR,
COUNTERTOP HEIGHT, AND UPPERS AND PERFECTLY SQUARE!
NOW I DARE YOU TO FIND THAT WITH WOOD FRAME CONSTRUCTION
AND THIS WAS WITH BLOCK!! HER AND CARLOS HAVE
KEPT ME HAPPY AND WILL GET MY NEXT PROJECT!
love the home BJ Sweitzer and Carlos Mora built
for us. They were involved in both planning and
construction. When we were ready this winter to
add an outdoor room, ramada and driveway constructed
of thick pavers, fortune smiled on us and found
them a little spare time to squeeze us into their
busy schedule. Many visitors to Play de Oro come
into our home because we entertain frequently and
the sales staff know we are happy to talk to prospective
neighbors. Ours was the first house by the water
and we are affectionately dubbed "the pioneers
of Play de Oro". The home has consistently
made a favorable impression on people and the recent
addition especially merits rave notices.
The cost and
conditions for building were clearly presented by
BJ as were any changes or additions. Final settlement
held no surprises. From the beginning our association
has been one of absolute trust. Two years later
and they still make minor adjustments with a smile.
You are in good hands with BJ and Carlos.

to taking the Oregon trail in a covered wagon. Trust
me, I've been there. Do you hire a rawhider you
know nothing about?
you are unsure about? Someone who just might scalp
you before the trip is over! Or do you pony up the
money and hire the most honest and toughest guide
in the business. If you are building a house in
San Felipe, that's BJ Sweitzer. Your choice. You
a " Stranger in a Strange Land " and not
knowing the rules and regulations pertaining to
the construction of our very first NEW home we were
extremely lucky to find B.J and her contractor Carlos
Mora. Both masters in their fields. An added plus
was the perfect Spanish spoken by B.J. You get what
you pay for. B.J. and Carlos were not the most expensive
but well worth the money for their individual talents.
And YES we would use them again and again if needed

I think anyone who is building in Mexico has
done their homework on builders.. the reputation
of BJ and Carlos is already there. Not
much more to add because of their excellent reputation....what
I would add is not only are they the best in San
Felipe as far as building, they stand behind their
houses....three years later when something might
come up....THEY ARE THERE... p.s.. they have built
both of our homes....
Jerry and Sue Duncan
our Baja dream house with B.J. and Carlos was the
best design/construction experience we've ever had.
They saw to it that the house was completed on time
and on budget. B.J. was there for us every step
of the way solving problems and making suggestions
which enhanced our finished home. Carlos and his
crew of craftsmen turned our plans into a beautiful
reality. Their finishing work and overall attention
to detail are excellent. In short, Sweitzer Construction
(B.J. and Carlos) exceeded our expectations from
start to finish. And, best of all, they have become
