Matt was extremely hands-on, very responsive, and we worked well together. Matt would literally text me back on a Sunday afternoon to check in, send photos of the progress made on the renovation when I was out of town, and would drop by my office when something needed to be taken care of that day. He's a great guy to work with, very no-nonsense, and has a positive attitude about everything. We got along well, and I'd trust Matt to do another renovation project for me. Read Tejesh's review

Matt and his team are consummate professionals. The entire team is skilled and their work is high quality. Matt gave us very helpful suggestions on tweaking our kitchen design to maximize space. During the project we remained in close contact by phone (calls or text), it was easy to plan out each stage of the construction. They worked quickly and cleaned up at the end of each day. This was important as we remained in our unit during the renovation. They also finished on time. Overall we were very happy and love our new kitchen! Read Andrew's review

Working with Matt has been a pleasure. He's an experienced contractor with an excellent team, great work ethic, and an honest, easygoing demeanor. At no point did we ever feel that Matt was trying to hustle us or overcharge us, and he was upfront about all the costs and possible adjustments from the very start. He worked well with our building management, super, and staff, making the whole process a breeze with a strict co-op. Matt gave us some great suggestions and advice on who else to work with for materials and used his professional relationships to get us some great deals. Even though we ran into an issue during the renovation, Matt was able to find us a solution. Throughout the renovation, Matt's team did their best to keep the place tidy for us, cleaning up after each day. They worked quickly and effectively, and exceeded expectations for our new kitchen. I would recommend Matt for his diligence, professionalism, hard work, and honesty. Read Elie's review

Matt and his team did a great job. All his teams were professional, communicative, kept the site clean - I'm extremely happy with the end result. Working in a pre-war house where no corner is exactly 90 degrees, they did the most amazing job tiling the bathroom - each grout line is perfectly straight. Matt would walk me through the layers of the build and he was available via text or calling on days when were weren't in the same place for a site visit. Read Alesa's review

After meeting with at least 7 contractors I was lucky enough to finally meet Matt, who completely transformed my apartment. Matt is extremely professional, accommodating, knowledgeable, honest, patient, and personable - just to name a few stellar qualities - the list goes on... My original project entailed upgrading a very outdated kitchen and bathroom in a co-op in Midtown Manhattan, but as most projects, morphed into much more as we ran into issues with the building (which is not uncommon). Working within the constraints of a co-op can be an arduous task, but Matt took it upon himself to ensure all issues were handled with both my building and my neighbors, alleviating a huge amount of stress for me. In addition to going above and beyond to make sure everything was resolved with my building, Matt provided a great deal of assistance in selecting materials, which probably would have taken me much longer if he was not there every step of the way to offer his expert advice. Matt was available to answer any and all questions and concerns, and made sure to address everything in a timely manner to my satisfaction. He is also very communicative and provided regular updates about the progress of the project, which was much appreciated. Not surprisingly, Matt’s team is also great – they were always courteous, and kept the apartment clean at all times, although I was not living there throughout the duration of the project. The final scope included gutting the kitchen and bathroom, skim coating all of the walls, and installing new hardwood floors. The final product is gorgeous, I am so happy with the results and the keen attention to detail. I am almost sad to see this project end and look forward to the next project with Matt and his team, and would recommend them with confidence. Read Christina's review

Matt and his team were fast and efficient. He brings experienced professionals to handle the multiple tasks of a successful renovation. And you don't need to wait one task to be completed for the other to start. I had carpenters, painters and electricians working at the same time in my apartment, which really saved so much time! They were able to finish painting, replacing moldings, all outlets, switches and lights, toilet, sink, faucet, reglazing the tube and bathroom tiles, installing the dishwasher and laying tiles in the closets (including a walking closet in 7 (seven) business days! I don't think anybody else in Manhattan would be able to do all this in this time frame. Read Fabio's review

We are extraordinarily pleased with the finished product - better than we had imagined it would be! Matt and his team were excellent from start to finish. They worked well with both our building management (providing all the necessary paperwork promptly) and our super. They were reliable, neat and conscientious. This is a two thumbs up review!!!

Matt started and finished my project on time. It looks great. Everyone working in my apartment was pleasant and attentive to detail - cleaned up carefully at the end of each day so that I was able to live reasonably comfortably throughout the work. The electrical part of the work, which I had dreaded, went very fast and smoothly and I love my new fixtures and overhead lighting. Read Zerojem's review

Matt and his team did a fantastic job. From the start, Matt was highly responsive and a pleasure to deal with. He answered phone calls and responded to text messages at all hours and helped us navigate an onerous co-op's paperwork requirements to get the job started. Once work started, Matt's team worked quickly, were flexible, and produced great work. When something didn't look right or work out as planned, they worked with us to make sure it was done right. Matt personally made countless pickup runs to Home Depot as products that we had ordered for the renovation arrived on a nearly daily basis. He was also very helpful in identifying local suppliers for items like kitchen cabinets and countertops. They wound up producing excellent work at very reasonable prices and much more quickly than Home Depot or other national chains were able to deliver. Matt's team always went the extra mile to make sure that things looked good and turned out well. In the end, they completely transformed a ramshackle apartment into a place that looks brand new and top of the line. On a personal level, Matt is personable, honest, and very easy to work with. We won't hesitate to use him again and to recommend him to friends and family. Read Saul's review

Matt and his team were very professional, reliable, and did impeccable work. They worked within the constraints of a pre war coop and kept me in the loop when any issues came up. Matt particularly was easy to reach and responded back in minutes whenever I had a question. I would recommend him without any reservations! Read Kent's review

We originally planned on a renovation of our two bathrooms and the kitchen at a later date. We had a limited time to do the project. When we did our walk thru with Matt, he convinced us it would be cost effective to do all our projects at once and he could do it within our time frame. We agreed. The bidding process was very reasonable. We added and subtracted various elements and arrived at a mutually agreed price. Of course once architectural input and demolition realities were added in the project changed somewhat. We both agreed to leave the pricing as is. There was little restrictions on what finishes we could select, that said we stayed reasonable with our choice of tiles, countertops and fixtures. Matt used high quality cabinets. The execution was top notch. There were no cut corners or subsitution of lesser quality finishes. The only complaint was that we had asked for a detailed time line of phase completion this was never provided. Matt failed to plan ahead on ordering various smaller items that lead to some delays. Doors without knobs, vanities without tops, etc. They did not complete the project in the promised time line which I believe was not possible to begin with. But they did work around various delays as effectively and creatively as possible. Read Lee's review

Matt and his team were great. They helped me at several points throughout the renovation of my new apartment, he came in with ideas and a realistic plan to help me accomplish my renovation. Even though my budget wasn't huge, Matt worked with me, did demolition very quickly, and even was willing to install non-standard, speciality fixtures like a bidet in the bath. Read Eric's review

This was my first renovation project and Matt and the guys did an excellent job of guiding me through the entire process. They were quick, efficient and finished the job well ahead of the schedule. I made a few changes midway through the project , they were considerate about it accommodated the changes as much as possible. They were also really helpfully and went out of the way to pickup special order items and and took care of things out of their scope. The only thing that I would advice though and which caught me off guard is that they are general contractors so plumbing and electrical may be done through other sub-contractors. I should have clarified reg the additional cost for electrical when I got the quote from them, I assumed the price included electrical/plumbing which was not the case and I found that out much later into the project. Having said they absorbed the cost for plumbing recognizing the extra burden it put on my budget. Read Sujay's review

They exceeded my expectations. They fully renovated an apartment for me, they made everything possible that I planned for this apartment and helped to used up every square footage. They're very nice and friendly which helps communication between me and them to go well. I got everything I ever wanted for the renovation and everything I wanted in a Contracting Company. I highly recommend them. Ilir and Matt you're the best. Read Nirmala's review

They have done a fantastic job on some very extensive work on my brownstone. They did a great gut rehab on our dungeon-like basement We were literally afraid to go down there over the years. After their work it was transformed into a full floor- clean and waterproof with tasteful fixtures and tile work. Used now for work play and laundry. The job came in on budget Their workers are really reliable, on time and get the job done right John is a great guy to work with. He listens and is creative and has a lot of skills to work around problems on an old brownstone. I recommend him highly for any job. He has great plumber and electricians too. Read Cassey's review
