    GoodFellas Construction
    GoodFellas started remodeling my kitchen about three weeks ago and I am so happy with the results this far. I initially chose GoodFellas after I had seen their work and reviews online. When I contacted them for a consultation their staff was friendly and prompt to all of my questions and concerns. When we met for the consultation with the project manager he measured and made helpful suggestions. He explained to me in detail what they would be doing if hired and helped me create a functional and beautiful kitchen design within my budget.  After choosing to work with them they started working on my kitchen a few days after, and my kitchen is progressing beautifully. We had a few hiccups with some unforeseen plumbing issues but all in all a very careful and beautiful job they are doing. I can't wait til they finish and I share the results with my family and friends. I will update my review once the remodel is completed. But so far so good!

    Lehman Design Studio LLC
    Alan Lehman at Lehman Design Studios is amazing.  We had a limited budget for the design of a large home and he came in right on budget.  Not only was he respectful of our budget, but he was able to guide us through the maze of the building permit process and planning approvals, all of which are myriad in Carmel by the Sea.  If our contractor had any questions, Alan was available and willing to do site visits and steer the project to its successful completion.   Over the course of many years, I have worked with many Architects and Designers but never have we had such a positive experience.  His sense of humor kept us on track through what is always a highly emotional experience.  Can't wait to do another house with Alan.

    brilliantsedge cleaning
    The owner of this company was most kind and considerate. He gave a fair estimate, took the items to be sprayed and determined the completed date.  Since the items were not being used out of doors and there was a toxic smell he held them until the smell dissipated.

    HovickDesign
    The final product is gorgeous. Nick has a great eye and is not only very artistic and sensitive to period details, but also an outstanding craftsman and just a stellar person. He also brought in a painter and a decorator who were excellent as well. I highly recommend Nick.

    Lehman Design Studio LLC
    Alan Lehman is the ideal architect.  He did this work for me two years ago and I just found out that the main contractor on this job never submitted paperwork for a final inspection.  I called Alan about this issue and his immediate response was,  "I'll go find your plans and call you back.  I can walk you through this."  He didn't hem and haw, he didn't make me feel bad, he just said,  "I can help you."  Within 15 minutes, he had found and reviewed my plans from 2 years ago and called me back.       Back when we were originally creating the architectural plan, Alan spent a lot of time with me, suggesting ideas, listening to what I wanted and changing his original plans to fit what I wanted.  He cares about what the client wants and has the architectural knowledge to be able to create a building that matches the client's descriptions and desires.  He cares about aesthetics and quality, so his buildings are beautiful.  He is flexible about meeting times and completely supportive of the client and he works well with all different kinds of people.  It is very helpful that the people who work in the planning, permit and building departments respect and like him.  I need look no further for an architect.

    EDDIE HURT
    Absolute nightmare to work with! Do not hire this man unless you have over a year to get back completed drawings. He is a very kind and gentle person, so we were lured in by his personality and trusted that he would get the job done for us. I stupidly signed his ridiculous contract that made it nearly impossible for us to take legal action, or back out of the contract without loosing everything. I told one of the people in the Pacific Grove Building Department that it took so long because Eddie told us his mother had died. They responded with, "again?" So, yea, this is the kind of guy who will say his mother died as an excuse to take six months to get back to you. We ended up having to pay a $1,200 city fee twice because the first one expired while he took FOREVER to complete our plans. Don't let his kind demeanor fool you. He will take your money and then take his sweet time.

    JMH Construction and Design
    Very unpleasant and bad experience- please get references and talk to customers before you decide to use them. Also detail out all the costs- don't rely on emails and verbal agreements

    WESTON-MILES ARCHITECTS
    We signed our first contract with Weston 2012 and it was basically a total of about 7 or 8 different contracts we signed. When they finally submitted plans they were not approved those plans needed a lot of corrections we paid him a total of $32,000 so far for plans that were not done right at all basically we told him we have no problem paying him the rest of the money until you make those corrections he wanted his money upfront stopped work and now we are going to court.  We found another architect to redo our plans finished in two weeks with permits and everything charged us $7,000 total.  Worst experience ever with Weston Architect has caused us a lot of stress,disappointment,anger don't wish that upon anybody
