“Before purchasing our house in Palos Verdes Estates, we knew that it would require a lot of work. Both my husband and I have Renovation Hardware taste but wanted to renovate with an IKEA budget. The following were the list of must-have items to renovate: (1) gut the master bathroom; (2) enlarge the master closet by relocating the entrance to the master bathroom; (3) move the HVAC unit from the second floor to the attic; (4) move the washer/dryer from the garage to the second floor (where the HVAC used to be); (5) renovate the kitchen; (6) tear down a load-bearing wall separating the kitchen and the family room; (7) install skylights (4 total skylights). During this time, we added a few things here and there as well. My husband is a perfectionist, and calls himself an “amateur architect” and does a lot of DIY stuff around the house, so he knew EXACTLY what he wanted when renovating the home (he created the layout and design, and hired a licensed architect to prepare the drawings for the permits). A friend referred a general contractor to us, and he agreed to do the job within our budget, but we didn’t get a good feeling from him (seemed unorganized, never returned our calls, was over a week late in returning emails, didn’t have a website or reviews online, and kept sending us bids with the wrong information). We’ve heard nightmare stories about contractors, and so decided to play the field and at least consider other contractors. My husband ended up interviewing around 9 other contractors (all while the house was still in escrow, so that we could start renovating immediately after it closed). The primary concerns were as follows: (1) PRICE; and (2) timing, since I was 7 months pregnant when escrow closed and was in a short-term rental until the house was completed. We needed someone to stay within our budget, and complete the job within 2 months. Easy enough right? NO! All 9 contractors were over our budget, and all of them estimated the job to be completed within 3 to 5 months (2 of them charged almost 5 times our budget and estimated 8 to 9 months. WHAT? It was crazy how far apart these bids were for the same job). So my husband and I decided that we had no choice but to increase our budget, and forget about moving in before the baby was born. The escrow closed in August 2016, and we still didn’t have a contractor. My husband and I were stressed out. Coincidentally, when speaking with a friend of mine from business school (she is known to be detail oriented and do more research than the average person, and I respect her opinion), she recommended California Construction Center, and particularly EZ (he goes by “EZ”). She told me that she did tons of research when adding a new room to her home, and said that EZ was very “easy” (no pun intended) to work with, that the price was one of the lowest she received, that the final product was flawless, that he didn’t go over budget, that he completed the job EARLIER than estimated, and he always picked up the phone when she called. Sounded too good to be true, so I called EZ and met with him. Very nice, knowledgeable, professional, organized (created computer model of what our bathroom would look like, similar to the HGTV shows), and super responsive. We met for a second time to go over the bid (estimate), and my husband and I prepared ourselves to be disappointed once again with the price and the length of construction, but told ourselves that as long as it wasn’t crazy numbers, we would hire him because we felt good about him. To our surprise, EZ’s bid was BELOW OUR BUDGET (we told him what our budget was), and he estimated 6 to 8 weeks (he explained that he knew I was giving birth and would do everything he could to get us in our home beforehand). No brainer, we hired him on the spot, especially because we felt absolutely confident with him. EZ started demolition immediately after being hired. Long story short, EZ passed all building inspections on the first attempt, completed the job ON-TIME, and didn’t charge a penny over what he estimated. During this 7 weeks, my husband and I called EZ almost every day (morning and night - as late as 10:00 p.m. sometimes), and EZ picked up the phone 95% of the time, or else texted me back and returned my call within 5 to 10 minutes. My husband (the perfectionist) envisioned how he wanted the skylights to look (just like the velux catalog - 3 next to each other). After EZ framed the ceiling/roof, my husband said he didn’t like the location. EZ’s response? “OK, I want to make you happy - where do you want it?” EZ changed the location, and afterwards my husband asked again to change the way it looked. EZ’s response? “OK, what would make you happy?” EZ changed it again. My husband changed it for a third time which required new beams, and EZ’s response was always “OK, I can do that. I want to make you happy”. I didn’t like the size of the new window in the new bathroom, and EZ’s response, predictably was “OK, I want to make you happy”. After the framing for the new shower was constructed, it was smaller than I thought it would be (although it was built according to my plans) and asked if we could enlarge it. EZ responded “No problem, if that will make you happy”. We never got sick of hearing that response. EZ never charged us more for making these changes, and simply made these changes because he wanted to make sure we were happy with the construction. Now THAT’s what I want to hear from a contractor. Throughout the project, EZ accommodated us, whether we decided it didn’t look great or if we saw an imperfection. We NEVER had to argue with him once. Again, he had one response: “I want to make you happy” and “I will take care of it”. We also met with EZ’s co-workers, “Ozzie” and “Omer”, and both had the exact same attitude: “We can do that”, “we will make the change” and “we want to make you happy”, without charging us more to make us happy. This made a very stressful time a little less stressful, knowing that the project would come out the way we wanted, and still staying within budget and meeting the deadline. The job is now complete, and we love our new home, especially the areas that were renovated by EZ. Again, the renovations came out even better than we hoped, and we have gotten a lot of compliments. My husband (who is never happy with anything) is actually very happy with the results. Even after the job has been completed, EZ is actually coming back to do one more thing for me, without charge, because I wanted crown molding around a pony wall in the bathroom. EZ never complains or argues, is completely professional, very responsive, absolutely accommodating and understanding, and he truly wants to make sure we are happy with his work. He seems to put customer service at the top of his priority list. It was a pleasure working with him, and I was simply compelled to write this review (which I don’t usually do, especially not such a long one). My husband has already recommended EZ to his brother and to a friend (even though he never recommends anyone because he doesn’t want to feel responsible if things go bad), and we plan on using EZ for any projects in the future. If you are going to hire a contractor, interview as many contractors as you like, but make sure you include EZ.”

“Susan was referred to us by our builder, as we custom built a new home. Working with Susan early in the process, she was able to help us select our flooring and tile options as well as coordinate the look and flow of our home. Susan also helped us design custom tile work for our entry. As we got closer to move in, we had many items left to purchase and worked with Susan and her husband John who is a licensed contractor. We installed new carpet and hardwood floor after closing which saved us quite a bit on our budget over the builder’s costs. As we prepared to move in we used Susan's services for paint, carpet, furniture selection, lighting and window coverings. We've been very happy not only with the design elements that she has helped us with but also with the overall customer service and respect of our time and our budget. We would strong recommend bringing in a designer in the earliest phases of building to help with the cohesiveness of the entire project.”

“My husband and I purchased a town-home four-plex building that was in a really poor condition. We wanted to give the building a better look as well as update all the units. We hired Spazio LA and they came up with a design plan and in almost 4 months they transformed the building, our new tenants are really happy and paying top dollars for rent compared to other units in the area. The town-homes are beautiful and hip, and the craftsmanship is really great. They managed the project flawlessly and the work was performed as promised and on schedule, their work ethics was outstanding and we are definitely going to use them again on our next project.”

“We recently had the pleasure of working with Evan and his team on the remodel of our Master bathroom. This was a small project compared to the many others OC Builders Group is completing, but we never once felt like we received any less attention. From the beginning, we emphasized to Evan the importance of completing the project as quickly as possible and he took it to heart, finishing the project on time and on budget in a quick three weeks. Evan went out of his way to accommodate us: starting the project the week we were on vacation to minimize the disruption, building an airtight plastic hallway to contain the dust from demolition, picking up the building materials and finishes we ordered from all around Orange County, etc. Evan was beyond responsive, answering text messages and emails with phone calls - often within minutes. Whenever any unexpected issues arose, Evan resolved them quickly and professionally. We remodeled our house a few years ago and had a bad experience with the general contractor; Evan restored our faith in GCs and we couldn't be happier with the final result.”

“We wanted to remodel our small kitchen and somehow make it larger. I had several builders bid the job, but only one stood out as the most knowledgeable, Eli from Pure Builders. He gave me a reasonable quote for the huge amount of work. As soon as the building inspectors gave us the go ahead, the demo got started promptly. At this time Adam, also from Pure Builders, took over the project. Communication with Adam throughout the entire project was excellent. The crew showed up promptly and walls and cabinets came down quickly, a new wall was created 4 feet towards the garage. The soffit in the kitchen was removed to match the adjacent room's ceiling hight. This gave the entire area a much larger look. The crew working for Pure was a delight to work with, but above all, they listened to my requests and always did the job to my satisfaction. We are now enjoying our beautiful kitchen, thanks to Pure Builders for making it all possible. This is a "Class Act" operation, I highly recommend.”

“My wife and I aspired to totally 'gut' and 'redesign' the interior of our 1978, 2,800 sq ft Laguna Beach home. Finding Anders Lasater was the equivalent of hitting a grand slam home run in the first inning. Anders listened to our ideas, created a fabulous design, then using his exceptional skills and experience guided us through the process of a successful remodel. Ander's design was inspiring and exceeded all of our expectations. His knowledge and counsel on matters such as permitting, building codes, contractor negotiations, materials/lighting and landscaping, insured a successful project. Anders was at our side through out the entire project. If we remodel or build another home, there is no doubt that Anders Lasater will be our first phone call.”

“Jeff and team did an A+ job throughout the entirety of our project. We would absolutely use him again and would absolutely recommend him to our closest friends. He stuck to schedule and budget, delivered a comprehensive plan that exceeded our expectations, and very importantly flew through the city plan check process. Our contractor commented on the detailed notes and specs that made his life much easier. Our home turned out to be everything we wanted and has been very well received by our friends and neighbors. We are also so excited that Jeff was helpful in supporting our green initiatives. It's hard to call any new construction project green, but if you're going to build Jeff is a guy who can help build a home with a lasting legacy. He encouraged us to deconstruct our home, which saved us money and now much of the original home lives on being reused. Our new home which is now over one year old is net-zero on its energy use (100% solar, no gas) and uses a fraction of the water of a traditional home thanks to our greywater system. Thanks Jeff for all the help with our dream home!”
