Client Testimonials

“Pelican Developers is a breath of fresh air! The owner, Iraj Roohani, was introduced to us as a referral from our architect. We were looking for a builder who would personally care for our home and not pass us off to other staff members. From the beginning, we could see a big difference between Iraj and other builders; not only is he very hands-on, but he takes personal pride and passion in his work. Iraj can foresee potential challenges and adjustments needed in anticipation of our needs as he constantly double-checks all aspects of the project. As a former architect and interior designer, Iraj has the knowledge and expertise to value engineer changes that ensure a beautiful custom home that accommodates our personal lifestyle. We have redeveloped and built numerous real estate projects and have never encountered a builder or contractor as detailed and knowledgeable as Iraj. As clients, we find Iraj to be a blessing and a pleasure to work with!”

“I have known Iraj for nearly 20 years. During this time, I have come to respect his expertise, talent, eye for detail, and focus on quality, but most importantly, his honesty and integrity.

Having built and remodeled several homes together, he has proven, without a doubt to be in a class all his own. His organizational and record tracking discipline has been spot on and a great source of confidence. Iraj’s experience and background as a great architect serve him and his clients extremely well. Building custom quality homes is complex and all-consuming. His background as an architect gives him a distinct ability to see what other builders would miss. And that makes the difference between just ok and incredible home!

For me, the reason I keep going back to Iraj to build my homes is simply because I trust him. I trust his integrity. I trust his experience. I trust his team. I trust that he will give his all to create an amazing home!”

“I’ve hired and worked with Iraj for several years – one project quickly turned into a lot more as working with Iraj has been nothing but 22 plus years of pleasure. As a business owner, I don’t have much time to manage additional projects. However, Iraj and his team sold me on three things: their creativity, dedication to detail, and organization. Iraj also brings unique aspects to each project because he was an architect before becoming a builder. To me, the most important one to highlight is the supplemental construction documentations. These details not only streamline the project, but this is something that other general contractors do not provide. Save yourself the time of trying to find someone to truly trust building your dream home – hire Iraj and his team!”
