When we decided to renovate our 18-year old condominium in the Parc Somerset complex, we consulted our NYC interior designer (with whom we have worked for 11 years) and together we interviewed four local contractors. After an exhaustive day of interviews, it was a unanimous decision for all of us that Jeffco Development was far and away the most impressive. Jeff Robins was so interested, listened intently, did not have a superior attitude, took notes on our wishes and budget, and advised us about what was feasible. Within 4 business days, we had a proposal for a work contract from Jeffco Development.
We then discovered that we needed a certificate of liability insurance from our homeowners insurance to cover the project. When our homeowners company wanted to charge us an exorbitant amount of money, Jeff Robins found a way for us to link it into his business coverage and saved us.
Our project included the following: kitchen renovation with new appliances, new lighting throughout, complete floor renovations (removal of marble from the foyer, tile from the kitchen, carpet from the hallways and bedrooms, with installation of hard wood floors throughout), fireplace renovation, complete renovation of the guest bathroom and level 5 painting throughout. There were things that exceeded our budget e.g. master bath and master bedroom closet –but I will put them on a list for future projects with Jeffco. Shaun Aschenbach was the project manager and he would routinely accept deliveries for appliances, and all of the materials being shipped from NYC e.g. light fixtures, flooring, carpeting, cabinet and door hardware, wallpaper and installing them as they arrived.
Our condominium managers were incredibly impressed with Jeffco Development for their attention to detail, their prompt delivery of required documentation and how polite everyone on the Jeffco team was to the staff. Each day, the Jeffco team had to install plastic covering to protect the rugs between the elevator and our condo before the work of the day even started.
The job is completed. We are thrilled with the results and one of the nicest experiences I’ve ever had. The job was done to perfection and within the proposed budget. In addition, Jeff Robins adds the special touches. With every invoice, the concluding sentence is “respectively yours”. What an impressive mission statement! Jeffco also left us a bottle of wine as a thank you. Who could ask for more? We are so grateful to have had them on our project.
