My husband and I hired Geneva Cabinet Gallery to remodel our kitchen. Out kitchen was gutted, and with Lynn Havlicek's gift of design and decorating combined with her ability to guide us in making good decisions, our kitchen is everything and more than we expected. Not only do we have a quality kitchen, but we stayed within our budget. Lynn's crew of skilled craftsmen were timely, friendly and tidy. They cleaned up after themselves daily. If Lynn's team said they would be at our home at 7:00 am, they were there at 7:00 am. All subcontractors involved had excellent skills and were efficient, as well. Lynn is very creative and provided ideas that worked in our kitchen while staying within budget. My husband and I had searched for a table that would fit and still look good for our kitchen, but to no avail. Lynn gave us a suggestion as to how to cut and paint our existing table, and her idea worked like a charm. Also, after many shopping trips, I was having trouble finding lighting that I liked; lighting that looked good and fit in our kitchen. Lynn told me about some websites and gave suggestions for lights. Our lighting is now perfect. Lynn was fun as well as so easy to work with. She is a delight and everyone needs someone like her when undertaking a big project.
We just wanted to write a short note of appreciation for the work you and your staff did regarding our remodel. You and your team were a big part in helping us design a kitchen we will forever love coming home to, living in and entertaining from with style and comfort.
As you are well aware, our remodel project took on its own life well beyond what anyone expected when we opened up the wall and found the structural challenges previously unknown. We were incredibly blessed to have your foreman, Mike Nelin, as the onsite lead directing this undertaking. Mike proved not only to be a master craftsman; he was also very meticulous, conscientious and patient with our constant queries.
If we ever decide to do additional remodel work on our home, regardless of the scope, we will be explicitly requesting that Mike be the designated on-site supervisor and lead carpentry resource. We have both had lots of other work done at previous homes and it has always eventually proved to become a headache and source of frustration. This was not the case in our seven month remodel - which is extraordinary! Again, thank you for assigning Mr. Nelin to our project - he was onsite virtually full-time for this project and I will actually miss the daily interactions with this gentleman.
We will be happy to be unconditional sources of reference for the quality of work performed by Geneva Cabinets Gallery, in particular, if Mr. Nelin is heading up the project.
We love our new kitchen by Geneva Cabinet Gallery and can’t wait to entertain our neighbors!
I can’t say enough about Jon and Steve. They are perfectionists and our kitchen shows it! All of our issues/concerns were met. Jon always had several recommendations on handling situations. We were always informed when there was a change in plans/schedule.
Remodeling our kitchen by Geneva Cabinet Gallery was a wonderful experience for us and the result is just simply functional and beautiful! We highly recommend Geneva Cabinet Gallery.
Recently I used Geneva Cabinets Gallery for my kitchen renovation. I wanted you to know how happy I am with my new kitchen. In fact, some mornings as I walk downstairs, I still give a blink or two; even now the change surprises me. The space is simple and elegant and exactly as I pictured in my mind before the work began.
When my husband and I considered remodeling, friends and family heaved a collective sigh and provided us with detailed accounts of timetables missed, less-than-reliable carpenters, and a mess that encompassed not only the kitchen, but the entire house. Ever the optimists, we chose to go ahead. The project was not the horror story that others experienced. In fact, the whole process was a pleasure. Glenda is knowledgeable and a wonderful woman. She is honest and insightful, meticulous (a trait my husband greatly appreciates), and has a sense of humor to boot. She clearly laid out the steps for the remodeling and assured me that her craftsmen were experienced and professional. She told me a bit about Mike Nelin, the supervisor on the job, before we decided to go ahead with the renovation. She described him as experienced, detail-oriented, and trustworthy; she said that he is good at what he does. He is. Mike is better than good. He is true to his word; he called when he said he would; he showed up when he said he would show up. He was on time, if not a bit early, every morning. He asked my opinion on small details. On some occasions, he would actually put two kinds of molding in place so I could see which I preferred. He took the time with me; his goal was my satisfaction. Dave, the electrician on the job, and Jimmy, the other carpenter, were also great. If I had to have men spending days in my home working, I am glad it was these three. They are talented, reliable, neat, and polite.
Finally, my family decided to fly in for an unplanned Memorial Day visit. I cautioned them that I wasn’t certain I would have running water in the kitchen. I told Glenda and Mike their plans. I feel uncomfortable imposing timetables because sometimes the work suffers - not so in this case. Glenda and Mike worked tirelessly to have my kitchen appliances up and running in time for my family’s visit. Mike coordinated inspections, plumbers, and granite fabricators with ease. Before my family arrived, I had water, working appliances, lighting - installed and running - and the space was cleaned to perfection. I couldn’t have handpicked a more perfect group to remodel my kitchen.
We’ve been in our new kitchen for several months, and we love it.
We appreciate the effort you put into the design to give our kitchen a totally new look. The quality of the Brookhaven cabinets exceeded our expectations.
Your construction team, lead by Mike Nelin, took pride in their work, and were more than willing to listen and execute our suggestions. The coordination of the various contractors kept construction to a minimum.
We expected the remodel to be a stressful time, but the end result and the work of your team made it well worth it! Thank you.
