What Our Clients Say
The overall outcome was beautiful, it was what we expected if not more.
- Danville, CA
We hired Gordon Reese Design Build for our Kitchen remodel after a lengthy interview process with a number of construction companies. We were impressed with Gordon and his team, their understanding of what we wanted to do as well as clearly outlining the scope of the work based on our budget. We worked with Gordon over a few weeks finalizing the scope of work and contracts and he was very responsive to my many calls, questions and clarifications. We set a start date for the project and on that date he and the project manager arrived with the crew to do a walkthrough of the project and contract to make sure we were all on the same page as we started the remodel. Over the course of the project I met often with our project manager and our lead remodeling professional to check on status, issues and solutions as we progressed with the remodel. Gordon and his team have great relationships with a number of suppliers in the local area that are Green in their building processes and my favorite was our Cabinet company (Precision Cabinet and Trim of Brentwood). Gordon was able to arrange a personal visit and tour of the cabinet companies factory and for me to meet with their local rep to review our final cabinet choices, color and options. It was a great experience and one that made the cabinet selection a breeze for this remodel. I can say that the team arrived to work every day on time and worked hard to meet the project deadline. He always left the workspace neat and went out of his way to be sure we had everything we needed during the project. The kitchen came out beautiful, the workmanship by our lead remodeling professional was incredible. All of our family and friends love the final result and we could not be happier. One side note, during the construction we found a "surprise" that needed to be addressed that was not related to the kitchen remodel and working with our lead remodeling professional, our project manager and Gordon we were able to address this critical fix with ease as they were able to add the scope to our project and have the lead remodeling professional address it while also working on the kitchen. That little side trip was unexpected but working with our lead remodeling professional along with a number of other folks from the Gordon Reese Design Build team, we were able to address the fix and not impact the overall project timeline. I highly recommend Gordon and his team for any remodel or construction project!
- Concord, CA
The project was gorgeously designed, meticulously managed, and beautifully rendered. I will use Gordon Reese and team for upcoming projects on the rest of the house. I recommend them without hesitation.
I was most satisfied with Gordon Reese Design Build's professionalism, how they approached the job, coordinated it, and set up the quotes. Everything was done very professionally. They have a website that allows you to communicate effectively and store documents. I was satisfied with the professional organization.
- Virtue Painting
"Virtue Painting Company recently joined Gordon Reese's subcontractor team and so far, we are very impressed with the inner-workings of his company and the team he has in place. I greatly appreciate the Accounts Payable process and your team getting back to me with the update we needed. We appreciate great customer service and attention to detail and you have expressed that to us with your follow-up. We look forward to working with Gordon Reese Design Build for years to come. It will give us peace of mind to know we can rely on you."
"It's been over a year and we still think every day about the remarkable transformation brought by the kitchen remodel you designed and carried out for us which opened up several small, dark rooms to bring a bright, spacious, elegant feel to our now modern, practical, hard working kitchen and also remained wonderfully true to the style of our 1920's home. We hear all the time how beautifully the new room melds with the original feel and detail of the home while opening up the living spaces that we now enjoy immeasurably more. We love it and appreciate the excellent experience we had with you throughout the project."
Gordon Reese and Jeff Rexford were responsive to client concerns which arose during the construction process and managed those concerns and any others that arose throughout the construction process.
"I've worked with Jeff Rexford for over 20 years while I was with John Wheatman & Associates, and he with Bashland Builders. He is extremely professional in his approach with clients. Whether it be an initial consultation or during the quoting process, and straight through the construction phase. Jeff has a great understanding of quality in design through craftsmanship. And through the design process he has respect for the client's home, and keeps their needs in mind. You couldn’t be in better hands!"
The workmanship of the worker on site (Chris) had excellent skills and he was very easy to communicate with. He was on time to work each day and cleaned up the job site effectively. He more than the project manner kept us up to date with information.Office people were additionally nice to work with.
- Berkeley, CA
"First of all thanks for the great job your crew did to get the house ready for Thanksgiving! We got rave reviews on how nice everything looked from our guests and we fit all 13 people in our dining room table! Also I wanted to thank Ryan in particular who was great and worked very hard at getting to all the touch-ups on Tuesday and Wednesday and thanks to Jeff for the bathroom designs they look great."
We appreciate your high quality customer service and attention to detail. Thank you!
- Martinez CA
The whole process was very easy. I had preconceptions about how a construction project could disrupt your life. The Crew was quite professional. The most impressive thing was that they showed up on time or earlier every day of the project."
- I liked working with Jeff as he was very responsive to my many questions. He made himself available to be here when questions required him to "see" what I was referencing. He was also helpful in suggesting paint palate for the bathroom and fixtures and mirror selections.I appreciated their response to the problem of the granite in the bathroom that was not accurately cut. Gordon Reese and the Pacific Stone were great about replacing the piece.Also I want to mention the quality of the workmanship of Pacific Stone on our kitchen countertops (subcontracted by Gordon Reese Design Build)--there were some very difficult angles around the sink and garden windows to cut and it fit wonderfully.
- Moraga, CA
"Just a brief note to let you know we could not be happier. The team you have assembled, headed by Jeff and Ryan, could not be more professional, caring, or masterful in their attention to detail. Your company has defied all propaganda about the horrors of renovations. We are beyond grateful.The combination of witnessing the birth of our granddaughter and watching our kitchen evolve has made us feel VERY blessed. Thank you"
- Danville, CA
Our guest bathroom, kitchen, laundry room and hallway turned out amazing, just as we had hoped. The communication software Gordon uses was fantastic in dealing with scheduling, pricing, and communication. I could get a question answered in a very timely manner and Gordon could keep me updated instantly. Jeffrey was very helpful in assisting us with our design and he was fun to work with. The crew was very professional, hardworking, took pride in their workmanship and was great to work with. Overall, we stayed on budget, on schedule and got exactly what we had envisioned. We were very pleased with the process from start to finish thanks to Gordon and his team."
We are very happy with the look of our updated kitchen. I smile each time I walk in and look out my picture garden windows reflecting light off my new dreamy marfil quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances. The long matted white subway tile backsplash gives just the right touch of contemporary feel and contrast to the newly refinished dark cabinets. The new acacia word floor brings a warmth of color to the room.The updated sink area of the bathroom looks great--it's now in the 21at century and not the 1960's.
