Father and son team, My experience has been excellent I can say that professionalism and attention to detail have impressed me immensely. They took the time to not just build my addition but to explain and help in designing my addition. Navigating the permissions and regulations so I did not have to was fantastic.
Steve responded quickly to my inquiry regarding putting in a wall mounted dog door. He arrived on the designated day and time; even arriving a few minutes early. He professionally went to work installing my very expensive “Hale” dog door. He protected my kitchen nook floor and outside area where work was to done. His attention to detail and cleanup was great. The dog door needed to be placed under a window, and he was able, with confidence, adjust electrical wires in order to accommodate the door. He is very friendly and his price for this project was very reasonable. I will definitely use him again for other projects that I need done. I am very happy with his work. My photo of this door came out horizontal, instead of vertical, but hopefully it shows how well Steve installed my double wall Hale dog door.
Working with Microresorts was a true pleasure. We were extremely lucky to find Elder through an old real estate agent and we couldn’t have been happier. Microresorts built 2 decks, concrete walls, a firepit, a fence with gates, and beautiful planters and also put in 2 irrigation systems, a drainage system, many plants, and a gas line to our firepit and grill. He also installed our hot tub including electrical. He also threw in some extra items that we didn’t expect which we needed to get done at some point. Before we even signed a contract, Elder drew up plans and showed us his fantastic ideas for our outdoor space. He put a lot of work into the plans and it was clear that his vision matched ours. His workers were considerate to our neighbors. Elder met all of our immediate neighbors and game them his contact info. He told our neighbors to call him if there were any issues. When the workers showed up at 9:30am on a Saturday, one of the neighbors complained (even though this was much later than the 8am that the local ordinance allows). Elder had the workers come even later on Saturday to accommodate our neighbor. The work was professionally done and looks amazing. Everyone who sees our space is astonished at the design and finishing work. Although the work took a little longer than the original estimate due to rain, it was completed as quickly as possible. It was well managed and there were no significant delays or problems. Elder dealt with us with respect even though we did change our minds on a couple of details after work started. He didn’t increase the price when we made changes even though we knew it would be a little more expensive for him (and we were willing to pay more). The hardscape is solid and we are not worried about maintenance anytime soon. We wanted a low maintenance house and he gave that to us. Overall, I can definitely say that we are extremely happy with Elder Jerez and Microresorts. We would definitely hire them again if we had any more work to do. Choosing Elder and Microresorts was an excellent decision and we recommend him highly.
Fady has designed 3 projects for me now. He was not only very detail oriented but a complete professional throughout the build. My city in particular is very difficult to work with. I'm convinced had I not chosen Fady, my build would have not been completed on time. Thanks Fady!
Mana Design Build just finished remodeling all 3 of our bathrooms. We love them and our new bathrooms. Our master bath was a complete mess and needed everything from new fixtures to new placement of shower, sink and toilet! Mazi (the owner) and Angela (the designer) was so knowledgeable of the latest designs, fixtures and really listened to what I wanted in my bathroom. Based on my input, she brought out fabrics, tile, granite samples all to my home. I didn't need to do any of the running around! She and Mazi met with us every step of the way! Demolition took only one day! He then reconfigured all the electrical and plumbing and started building my bathroom from scratch. The end result is a super functional, up-to-date master bathroom! Mazi then conquered our other 2 bathrooms. They needed a facelift: new tile, vanities, toilets, paint, the works! One of the benefits of working with Mana Design is that they are a design and build company. They provided all the materials, made all the necessary appointments for permits with the city of Lake Forest, and cleaned up the "remodel" mess every day before leaving! I am super pleased with my bathrooms! The work is clean and meticulous, and I know if we ever had an issue with something they would be out immediately to fix it. We look forward to our next project (remodel kitchen) with Mana Design Build!
I am a General Contractor with 25+ years of knowledge and we do a lot of Design Build for additions and remodels. I am very selective about the tradespeople I surround myself with because I approach my clientele as a complete start to finish solution. Armando has been a great discovery for allowing the timely and professional delivery of drawings to our clients. He is a rare find within a world of "talk a good a game, but never deliver" on your word.
We did a lot of research to find the right contractor to build us a free-standing recreation room. We actually hired a different contractor first, simply based on having the lowest price. What a terrible decision. We quickly came to regret it, and fired that contractor as soon as we could — a costly misjudgment. Even though Owl Construction’s cost was a bit more, though very reasonable, we knew he was the right contractor for us. Guy Hazan of Owl Construction is fantastic. He was so easy to work with. He’s a compassionate listener, and kept us informed and at ease through the entire process. I don’t know much about construction, and had never undergone a project of this size, but Guy was there every step of the way. He explained everything very clearly and addressed any questions or concerns we had from day one to the completion of the project. I also must mention the Amazing Anesta. Anesta is a gem to this company. She kept the communication light and easy, and got the job done. She is responsive, dependable, organized and kind. The final building is stunning. The contractors did such a great job all around. To think what a nightmare it would have been to have continued with that original contractor who bullied and didn’t listen. Owl Construction was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend them to anyone.
Ray Hawkins, was effective and efficient in the design of my remodel in 2005 and since that time in all aspects of design, restructure on my home. His Design and development company single-handly saved me on numerous occasion. He is professional and knowledgable on all aspects in managing designs. In referring others, I only work with Ray and all have found him to be trustworth and effective. There is not a month that goes by that someone is not stopping by home and inquiring for who did the design on my remodel. In this day and age of design and structuring it is key that you have a professional, experience, licensed and bonded designer who can do it all. This is especially key for women and the aging. Ray Hawkins and group has never failed.
Deborah is awesome, thoughtful, concerned about her clients needs and wishes. Deborah is a concerned authority with reference to design. She can put together anythings you may want. I say YES to Deborah as your next designer. You will get the feeling you want from your project. We wanted excitement, and she was able to deliver that concept. Deborah is awesome!
He gave me a good fair price for a consultation on how to proceed with my project.
I have worked with many building designers and Reza is unique in that he listens to his clients and tries to incorporate their ideas into a design that is practical and functional. He has an easygoing personality, accommodates changes, and has many contacts in the building trades. He obtained all of the necessary permits for me and helped legalize an unpermitted addition. I will definitely use his services again.
Blair has been great. We are lucky to be able to work with someone so professional and responsive. You will not find such a responsive architect on his level without spending 4-6x the price. Thank you!
I eagerly, urgently recommend Martin Roy Mervel as your architect. He has the right combination of talent, taste, and persistence to help you build the house of your dreams. My wife and I are the proud owners of a 1935 Spanish revival home. We love it dearly -- its character, its charm, its "soul". In fact we love everything about it...except for the fact that it has only two bedrooms and one bathroom. Not the ideal arrangement for a growing family! We knew that we needed to add a new bedroom and a new bathroom, but we had no idea where to start. The house added a particular challenge, in that it sits on a long, narrow lot. We are so grateful that we found Martin, because this challenge did not phase him in the slightest. He spent countless hours studying every detail of the house, learning its nature, its "energy". Learning what made it special to us. He even climbed into the attic to get a better understanding of how the roof was constructed. It was like watching a surgeon at work! Thanks to this meticulous attention to detail, Martin was able to provide a number of amazing options, opening our eyes to the design opportunities contained within our walls. He embraced the nature of our long and skinny house, and he found possibilities for hallways and closets and vestibules in areas that we had never even considered. After a number of design proposals, we settled on our favorite. But Martin was not done yet...he continued to work tirelessly on the project, proposing aesthetic details such as wall sconces and tile layouts. He was also there every step of the way during the City of Glendale's design review and approval process. The city paid him perhaps the greatest compliment of all, when they approved his blueprints without a single change. Our city planner told us that such a complete success on the first pass is unheard of! Now, with the end of our project in sight, my wife and I love our "new" three bedroom, two bath home. It still has all the charm that made us fall in love with it in the first place, but it now has all the extra space that it once lacked. And most importantly: I DEFY ANYONE TO POINT OUT WHERE THE OLD HOUSE ENDED AND THE NEW CONSTRUCTION BEGINS! The new rooms are so well integrated into the language of the house, it seems like they belonged there all along. We could not be happier about our project. And we owe it all to Martin.
Jordan was tasked with producing Cad drawings of various fabricated components needed by my company. He produced drawings for all phases of manufacturing on these components in a professional manner. His rates are reasonable, the work is performed in a timely manner and he is a pleasure to do business with.
Raj was very responsive and helpful guiding me through the design and permit process. He was always very patient, personable and professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Robert had relevant experience, skills and interest to our project. Designed exactly what we needed in an incredibly short timeframe. He was great at communicating status and overall a pleasure to work with on our project! Will look forward to working with him in the future!
Mark Bench is a mom and pop construction I hired to do some improvements at our little home in Bixby Long Beach. I had some plumbing, some electrical, room renovation with new doors and windows and Garage improvements including Garage doors installed. I wish I can show pictures to show how happy I am with their work. These guys are professional and knows what they are doing. If you want fast and neatly done job, I recommend these guys.
Professional service and great eye for design! John and his team are very professional, creative and most importantly they have great eye for design. They delivered the project on time. Very happy with the service and quality of work. I will highly recommend!
Really fantastic experience with them, exceptionally professional, very competitive pricing, and great work.
Marisa is amazing to work with and has a great design aesthetic!
