He was honest about how much work actually needed to be done. Other electricians were telling me I needed to do a bigger repair than necessary. It might have just been different perspectives on the problem and not intentional dishonesty on their part. However, his repair suggestion actually matched what PG&E told me when they came out to do a diagnosis. It saved me tons of money, which I appreciated as a single parent on a teacher's salary.

German is the man !! I should have gone with him first instead of the other electrician that basically tried to rip me off. He replaced 7 old cans with new led cans and now there is light in the kitchen! He even fixed the power to my garage !! In the future I will only call German.

I was in a time crunch, and needed a falling fence repaired asap. Matt responded quickly to my initial request, as well as every subsequent email/text. We scheduled a visit the next morning, where he inspected the damage, and described a couple of options for the repair. That same evening, he sent us a quote with a reasonable and competitive price, and luckily was able to squeeze us into his schedule, despite only a couple days notice. The first day of the job, Matt and his team showed up on time, and got straight to work tearing out our old, rotting fence. Their work was clean and tidy, and they even made the extra effort to accommodate us in removing all of the debris that day, as we were scheduled to have photos of the yard taken. They returned the next morning to construct a beautiful, new fence, built to the highest standards. Afterwards, they cleaned up, ensured our yard was returned to it's original condition, and even helped us out by taking some extra yard compost with them, which had been left behind by the city. In the past, my experience w/ other contractors in general had been less than positive. Cost, communication, and especially workmanship on several jobs had become such a concern, that recently, I have been simply attempting most projects myself, if at all possible. My experience with Matthew Kelly Construction has been a breath of fresh air compared to these other interactions. Throughout the entire job, he and his team were incredibly considerate, accommodating, and some of the friendliest people I have ever worked with. Not only would I hire Matt again in a heartbeat, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality carpentry/construction work.

Matthew Kelly is hardworking and honest. He strives to make the job go as well as possible. After other contractors said no or did not return my calls, he responded quickly on the weekend, and he completed the job in a timely manner. Matthew's operation is lean and responsive. He is pleasant to work with and has my recommendation.

Matt was quick to respond and fit in our job around our electrician's schedule-very helpful. He also wanted to make sure we were happy with the work, checked in with us about our expectations, and even finished ahead of schedule.

Ben is a very thoughtful professional person, I hired him for install washer and dryer machine in my new house, and he gave me a very good solution of how to put washer and dryer in our small laundry room, I am so pleased I don't need to place dryer out of the laundry room or cut wall. He is also responsible and patient to explain everything to me. He did excellent job and make everything perfectly working. He is also an electrical engineering and I am going to hire him in the future time if I need. Thank you Ben.

After calling three other electricians who didn't even bother to return my phone calls, Lions Gate has been a breath of fresh air. They are wonderful communicators and their customer service is excellent. They make sure to get the job done right. Eric is a polite and considerate businessman with lots of integrity, which can be hard to come by these days.

Lions Gate installed 4 sconces, 4 cup lights in the ceiling, and new track lighting. The electricians were great at problem-solving and working with electric we had in walls. Work was done quickly and perfectly and the clean-up was appreciated. We are very pleased with the work and would recommend Lions Gate and use them again.

I had a great experience with Ballast Electrical. He was on time, worked quickly, and came up with a solution that was elegant and simple-- so much better then the convoluted process another electrician had proposed. He is really good at troubleshooting and I look forward to bringing him back for future projects. Thanks for your help!

Ivan, was the most reasonable electrician that I found. The pricing seemed very fair for the work performed, and everything looks nice. The only thing that was not great was punctuality and communication. Which I don't mind because I work from home, but if you are trying to schedule other things around an appt it might be tricky. Either way I will be hiring Ivan again, he helped get our kitchen remodel back on track. Thanks!

Noel reached out within an hour of my inquiry, scheduled an appt for the next day at 7am. He was at the house as scheduled on a Sunday. There were outlets in the rooms that were not function properly being overheated and/or had burnt out due to wiring issues. He fixed them and also fixed other non operating outlets that other electricians couldn't figure out. He was adamant on fixing them and knowledgeable to find out what others didn't. Did give us some advice on what to do and what NOT to do going forward and made himself available 24/7 for follow up issues.

I was so impressed with Electrical Control and specifically Tony. He gave us a reasonable bid on our remodel work that was comparable to others we received. The work included a new electrical panel, running wires under the house and to all areas of our outdoor kitchen, all wiring for new lighting and fan installation as well as outlets. His bid was timely and very thorough with lots of suggestions and options on how to deal with wiring, lighting, etc. When they came out to do the work there were always 3 electricians who got the work completed on time exactly as we wanted. I cannot recommend them highly enough and was so impressed with their work, communication, ability to stay on time and on budget all with a very professional attitude. We will definitely be calling them next time we need more electrical work.

By far the best electrician I have ever hired. Tony is knowledgeable, reliable and does his work on time, on budget and cleans up after the job. He listens and comes up with suggestions that work with your budget. He installed 5 fans, retrofitted LED recessed lighting throughout the house and changed all switches and plugs with Lutrons. I fell like I have a brand new home. Thank you so much for all your help you are a pleasure to work with. I can't wait to get started on the other projects.

From start to finish, Tony is the consummate professional. He arrived at my home on time and had everything he need to install my light fixtures. He was extremely careful with my furnishings and even brought moving blankets to protect my glass top dining room table and hardwood floors. I have a couple of more projects that require an electrician and I'll definitely be calling Tony!

Austin was the perfect handyman, arriving early and leaving plenty of time to install my standing desk and flip-up table. Austin made sure that both fixtures were solidly in place, and even installed some additional brackets to provide the desks with extra support. He had a great attitude and was thoughtful with his time, finishing long before I had to attend an event in the evening. Affordable and highly recommended. Would definitely hire again!

I got initially a few reply on Thumbtack and I had 2 electricians check out the work to be done and got a quote. Majestic Electric overall was the most professional and explained every things that needed to be done. We agreed on a time for the following week and as expected Nasar came that day and right away started to work on time. I checked the work during the day and I could see the progress. Nasar was extremely professional during the while project and keeping me informed -especially when he had to turn off for a few minutes the electricity. The job was completed the following day because of my old electrical panel (nothing wrong with Nasar’s job) and 20 minutes after his return my new NEMA 14-50 plug was installed and fully working in the garage. Nasar took the time to clean up the place he worked on. I will definitely re-hire Nasar due to his professionalism and the quality of the work delivered: I am posting this review one week later after using the electrical work he did every day and I had zero issue. So great electrician who on top of that is extremely professional.

Daniel has been working with me 2-3 days a week over the last 10 weeks or so to do odd jobs to finish off a Victorian renovation. He has: installed light fixtures hung wallpaper assembled IKEA furniture and bathroom fixtures installed hardware around the house like door closers, doorstops, laundry drying racks installed nest smoke detectors patched and painted walls installed a cork wall he has hung about 30 pieces of art and he's pitched in with the electrician when needed. Daniel has a dry sense of humor that has been welcome during a stressful renovation when not everyone on the team has been at their best. I also very much appreciated that he knew his own skill-set. He had no hesitation with saying "no, that's out of my depth." He's been great to work with, and he is able to manage expectations well. Daniel was coming to SF from Oakland, and always let me know when he would arrive. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.

Dan is a great handyman. He's calm and capable and completed a number of projects I had no idea how to get done. He's very knowledgable in a number of different areas, but honest when it's something he feels he can't do. I admire that. He always delivered what he promised. I'd use his services again in a heartbeat. Can't recommend highly enough.

Art and Eugene are great at what they do and they can do a whole bunch of things as I realized while they were working on my project. What I really liked about them was that they take time to explain the problem, tell you the long term (and probably more expensive) fix and then go ahead and do the fix that you need right now to get on with your life. In my case, a whole bunch of things by my previous contractors were not done right on the outdoor electrical panel i.e. the electrical receptacles weren't water proof, the panel used to cover the outlet wasn't right and water was seeping into it. They also found out that underground electrical conduit wasn't PVC and suggested that I should get it fixed it sometime later. Overall, I'll hire them in a heartbeat and if you are looking for electricians who get shit done and within reasonable price, do yourself a favor and hire them.

I texted Art after being referred to him through the NextDoor app, which gave him high marks. I know how busy electricians are so I was hoping to have my new ceiling fixture installed by the following week. Art called me back that evening and said he had an unexpected opening that night and he drove immediately over. I had my fixture installed instantly and at a fantastic rate. His prices are very fair and more than competitive! He was also polite, sharp, and knowledgeable and gave me some hints about my kitchen and new light. He also trains new electricians so I found that reassuring. As an added bonus, he said goodnight to my cat, by name, which just showed how much attention he pays to his loyal customers. Don’t hesitate to call this guy!
