Thank You for the Theme and keep up the good work :)….

Everything what is in the package here is working perfect so you are able to develop a quality site in less time. All our clients are attracted by the site we have developed with this Theme (http://casasmundiales.com) At the same time a great thank you to the support team, they answered allways within a day with useful answers so that we could solve each problem we have had.
This theme is one of my favourite. Great design easy to customize and wonderful support. I bought a second theme of Proteus and it is good as well as this one.
Awesome theme! Best suitable theme for my project. Customer support is also great 🙂
Very customer orientated and helpful. I also appreciate the rapid reply and speed of our case regarding customization to specific needs from client.
Great Theme! Awesome team!
Excellent thème with visual composer and good doc.

Great theme, excellent support! Fast and adequate help, beyond expectation 🙂
When designing a booking for travel agency, it came as a life savior.
We bought originally one theme on ThemeForest, that did not comply with the high-priced WooCommerce Add-on and high-priced Booking plugin. We struggled with the issues on this theme for three months. We could not work it out, why does it not want to show the right prices. Then we thought why not replace it with the Buildpress, which we have bought for another project. And everything we struggled for three months, was resolved in 15 minutes. Thank you for your nicely coded theme.
A good template. Great opportunities.
Excellent support, the problem with the installation decided quickly.
Thank you for helping Gregor.
Thanks to the whole team ProteusThemes you cool!
This is a great theme that can be used for much more than simply builders (I am using it for a financial website). It works great and the support team and amazingly fast responding to issues! Thanks guys.
5 stars – great mix of super design and very helpful support. I will be looking out for what this team creates in the future. They really know what they are doing. Well done.
This is BY FAR THE EASIEST theme I had to install. The support documentation is 100% accurate.
Well done ProteusThemes, I will definitely be using more of your themes in the future.
Good Luck on sales.
This is one of the best themes on Themeforest at present due to the excellent Design Quality, Feature Availability, Easy Customisation and the overall fantastic Customer Support from Proteus Themes. Replies to my queries were received almost instantly. I have purchased many themes but this one exceeds all expectations. I highly recommend purchasing ‘Buildpress’.
All around great theme. This website is super easy to customize /translate and make look like the demo content with your own personal spin if thats what you want. site is complete and we love it. customer support has been excellent and if any issues came up, they assisted in fixing issues rather quickly. great job!
Great theme (BuildPress) with very helpful customer support (ProteusThemes) with consistently the shortest response time I have experienced until so far.
We are establishing a new building company and found the Buildpress Theme as the most convenient regarding the design and features it provides.
Proteus support is excellent and they answer questions promptly.
