    Congratulations Chuck!

  2. I have personally known Chuck for just over ten years. My wife of 30-years and I live in the immediate area where Chuck has built the majority of his luxury homes. His reputation around town is beyond reproach. The quality and craftsmanship of his homes are considered the holy grail by families throughout Central Florida who all strive to own a “Fowke” custom home.
    Chuck is known for “his word is his bond” kinda man. It’s been said by many the only true legacy a man can leave behind is integrity. I can assure you that in Chucks case, his legacy is as solid as the rock hard foundations of the homes he builds.
    My words would be mirrored by everyone who has ever met or had business dealings with him. He’s the right man at the right time to hold this position. I encourage everyone to cast their ballot in favor of Mr. John “Chuck” Fowke.

  3. Congrats Chuck!! You are a great example of what makes NAHB great!!😊
