Meet The Sandifer Team

Nick Sandifer, President/Owner

Nick is a graduate of Florida State University with a degree in Real Estate Finance, Appraisal and Feasibility. He started his building career with a large national builder, Centex Homes.  Later he worked as a project manager for local custom home builder Benchmark Luxury Homes. His experience working for both national and local custom builders has allowed him to focus on the schedule and the details. Nick has experience with a wide range of residential construction projects from small bathroom remodels to new custom homes.

Having built production homes, he understands the importance of pushing the schedule to complete jobs in a timely fashion on budget but also is very detail oriented. “Every small detail has to be right, I look at each project as if it’s my home. If we missed the mark, I wont allow it to stay that way. It will be fixed.”  I love helping people create the spaces they’ve dreamed of.

Nick and Sandifer Custom Homes recently joined Remodelers Advantage, are also a member of NEFBA, REMODELERS and are a pinnacle builder. Nick enjoys spending his time away from work with his wife Chelsea and his two children Paige and Cole. Nick also loves to spend time cooking and working out.

Chelsea Sandifer, Vice President

Chelsea is a graduate of the University of North Florida with a degree in Psychology and Deaf Studies. She started her building career with Sandifer Custom Homes in 2015. Most of her work is behind the scenes, including permitting, scheduling, new client communication, and client selections. Chelsea also manages marketing, events, and the coordination of all information from office to field.

Outside of work, Chelsea enjoys spending time with her husband Nick and their two kids Paige and Cole. Her hobbies include: focusing on nutrition, working out, and traveling.

Larry Durden, Project Manager

He started his building career at a very young age with his entire family being in construction. One of Larry’s fondest early memories of remodeling was for a Dairy Queen restaurant in which he was paid with hotdogs and milkshakes. Larry is a retired qualified heavy equipment operator including being a G.M. and Caterpillar certified technician.

Larry enjoys spending time with his wife, Jessie, of 50 years, his 5 kids, and his 11 grandchildren. He also likes going to church, playing the guitar/piano, and singing southern gospel music.

Since he has come out of retirement, Larry loves being in the construction industry. He considers it a hobby in which he greatly enjoys the work. He also has a keen eye for detail and always wants the job done right and as efficiently as possible.
