Client Testimonials

Smart Building Group - AMAZING on so many levels! In 2017, my family and I were away for a 3 week vacation , while we were away we had a slab leak that caused extreme damage to the walls, cabinets and flooring. My family had to move out due to the level of damage. The whole first floor of the house was RUINED, and had to be gutted; thankfully with the great work of Art and the rest of the Smart Building Group we were able to move back home in record time. Anyone going through such an ordeal would understand the level of stress, but thanks to Art, it was quickly put back together better than before. Art was a huge help with design, layout, color scheme and just about anything else we needed help on. He did such a great job that we decided to renovate the whole house! I can not say enough good things about a man who cares so much for his clients and takes pride in his craft. Art stepped up to get the job completed in record time and done to perfection! My gratitude runs deep, my appreciation is immense. Thanks to Art, or home was quickly put back together better than before. As a California Realtor and professional flipper, Smart Building Group has become my Go-to builder and contractor. Huge thank you to Art and his whole crew for consistently doing a great job!Read More

After months of searching and meeting with various contractors, we chose Smart Building Group because we consider Art to be highly experienced, knowledgeable, smart, easy to talk to and understanding. He was also very competitive in his pricing. We needed to have our kitchen completely renovated, the kitchen ceiling raised, a kitchen window and wall removed, a huge brick façade in front of our house repaired and our dryer vent rerouted to go through the attic to the outside. We had a difficult time finding a contractor who was able to do all these work correctly as well as not charge us an arm and a leg. We were thrilled to find Art who knew exactly how the work needed to be done and was very reasonable in his pricing. We were very nervous as this was our first time to do a home renovation. We were also very demanding as my husband had done house construction in the past. Art was very patient with us, always responsive to our needs and concerns, and focused on pleasing us. At the same time, he provided us with advice and guidance so we make the right decisions. A big plus is Art’s eye for beauty and knowledge of current trends. It made a big difference to us that Art’s team was knowledgeable, hardworking, efficient and easy to work with. They always cleaned up before they left for the day. We love our new kitchen, our renovated brick façade and rerouted dryer vent. We are very happy that the work was done in a timely manner. Art, thank you so much for the great work and taking good care of us!Read More
