I would like to give Kim Norman of Showcase Kitchens & Baths a huge thank you! Kim did an amazing job designing a custom kitchen just for my husband and I. The kitchen is functional and beautiful. It makes me smile every day. I would definitely do it again, Kim made it effortless. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your hard work Kim. I would also like to thank Michael Perlmutter (Project Manager) and the rest of the staff for their help and patience. The Wood-Mode (Brookhaven Cabinets) they created for us are top quality and beautiful.
Charlie and Kathleen were a dream to work with! Utter professionals. Steve is a huge asset to your company. Forest Construction and Showcase working together is, in my opinion, essential to the job. The communication that flows between the two keeps the project flowing and on schedule. One of the things I was most impressed with was the spreadsheet outlining the day to day activity of the job. I can't recommend them enough for their patience and understanding. I would say that your strengths lie in your reputation and quality of personnel.
Dear Ernesto, we can't thank you enough for designing such a beautiful kitchen for us. We just love it. Everyone that walks into the kitchen is in love with it. We love our kitchen table and color you picked out for the walls & the different heights for the cabinets. It's just a gorgeous kitchen. Overjoyed!
Kim made my kitchen flowing, functional and gorgeous!!! It really works and looks great “just sitting there” too!
We can't think of anything we didn't like about working with Showcase, you're superb in every respect!
When deciding to remodel our kitchen, we looked at all the options for design and cabinets. In the end, we chose Kim at Showcase and are thrilled with the final remodel. The cabinets are really nice and the design was perfect for our space. We would highly recommend them.
Being able to work with your designers, using their expertise to embellish our own ideas and requirements was great. The supervisor worked closely with us and was at the job site every day. All in all, we were quite happy with the two remodeling jobs you did for us. We wouldn't attempt to take on remodeling kitchen and bathrooms on our own.
The supervisor made sure that we knew of the process every step of the way. We were always “kept in the loop” when we were told that a certain phase of the project would be completed on a certain day, it was done! Overall we were more than pleased with everything and everyone. I would give a strong referral to anyone who might ask if I would seek out Showcase.
I had driven by Showcase many times and kept thinking about stopping by and I finally did. I walked into the lovely showroom and only waited a minute, and then Mike Hartstein came out and smiled and introduced himself. I was immediately comfortable. I liked Mike right from the start. He was warm and down-to-earth. We talked a few minutes about my kitchen and what the possibilities were. I made an appointment for him to visit and that was the beginning of a very easy, painless design and remodel. He was always on time. I was so amazed at all the drawing and planning that went into changing a room. For Steve (the job supervisor) and I, it was effortless. I never felt worried or stressed during our remodel process. The product is beautiful and of the highest quality. We love our new kitchen. It is fun to be in and we have received so many compliments. Thank you Mike for making the project so pleasant.
When Kim Norman walked into my kitchen, the first thing she said was, “What a small kitchen for a large house.” However, after redesigning my cabinets, Kim made my kitchen seem so much larger. I have recommended Showcase Kitchens to my friends.
I 100% recommend this company if you don't want to have the day to day hassles of home renovation. Ernesto was great at coming up with a plan and listening to what I wanted. He also had much better ideas than I did. I trust him completely. The relationship with the builder is the real advantage. You don't have to make multiple phone calls. The work is superior and people are great. It ends up being a little more expensive but so worth it. I know that I will get great customer service (if I ever need it) forever.
They did a great job. We could not have done the projects without their services. They were extremely honest, helpful, and knowledgeable.
Can't believe there could be a better business to deal with than Showcase. Our neighbors had extensive work done – large kitchen and 2 baths. Decided right away we would use the same company. Mike Hartstein is an outstanding talent – very comfortable and easy to work with. His guidance and ideas made all the difference. Supervisor Tony and his crews were the best…always friendly, courteous and professional…and did terrific clean up after each visit! Our new main bathroom tub-to-shower conversion is such a pleasure just to look at….As life-long do-it-yourselfers, it was great to sit back and watch the progress. We could easily understand a few minor delays and would certainly recommend Showcase to others.
The agreed-upon estimate is a good guideline and is reflected in the quality of workmanship. Customer satisfaction was primary to Showcase. I would recommend them to friends. Showcase encourages you to make choices that you won't regret. They provide the big picture and make a point to tell you what choices are important and discuss ideas to minimize costs where they can if desired. They value your every request and make adjustments as needed. Basically, it's whatever the customer wants. We found customer satisfaction the greatest strength Showcase has. They have reliable, quality workers.
Tony's dedication, communication, and character are a great asset to your company.
Steve Love as our project manager was outstanding. He always was prompt and courteous in resolving the issues that came up during the project. He also worked well with the subs to assure our satisfaction. We are definitely happy with the final product and would (and have) recommended friends and neighbors to contact you.
Steve is only one of (maybe the best) men working for Showcase. His service alone would make me choose Showcase again! Steve is reliable and honest. He even showed up recently when I thought I had a problem with the remodels plumbing long after the last check was cashed. Steve is one of your greatest assets. You do a good job selecting employees and subs. I have already recommended you to 3 friends.
When it came time to remodel my kitchen, I didn't hesitate to use Showcase, from my previous experience with Forest Construction, I knew I would be in good hands and my project would be completed on time. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my kitchen, it is more than I expected. Listening to a co-worker who was going through a complete remodel as I was, had nothing but delays, I always knew what was going on and I have nothing but praise for Showcase and their staff; I would recommend this company to family and friends.
Showcase Kitchens and Bath completely renovated our kitchen and family room in the Fall of 2007. The entire team was professional, polite, on-time and actually really nice people. Since we were living out of our living room, and it was very close to the holidays (November), we were concerned about the possibility of running behind and not having our kitchen done by Christmas. However, the crew stayed right on time, with the finished product a week before the holidays and gorgeous. Now, 4 years later, I am still in love with my beautiful kitchen. We plan to remodel our upstairs bathroom and Showcase is the only company I would consider for the job. I highly recommend them for any remodel/re-design home project.
Showcase just finished a kitchen remodel for me and it has exceeded my expectations on every level. Ernesto Sepulveda came up with a great design that incorporated my ideas and improved on them. The contractor, Tony Federico, was always up front about the schedule and any problems that arose, and always found a creative solution. All the workers that they employed were excellent, polite and helpful. Overall a great experience. I would use them again in a second.
Dear Kim & Tony, We can't thank you enough for designing our beautiful kitchen & bathroom. Kim Norman is a wonderful & talented designer. Tony Federico and his crew are the best. They're very friendly, courteous, professional and cleaned up after each visit. We became good friends with both Kim & Tony. We would definitely recommend Kim for her designing & Tony for his work ethic. They are both very enthusiastic & dedicated to your needs. Showcase deserves and has earned a 110% recommendation.
Great job! We love our kitchen. Tony was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him.
A year ago Showcase remodeled our two bathrooms. The job was excellent and Michael Hartstein, our Designer, and Steve Love, our Construction Supervisor were great. Both Michael and Steve “held our hands” through the entire job. A year later we decided to remodel our kitchen and the only company for us was Showcase. Again we had Michael and Steve as our team and the job went great, on a budget, and even completed two weeks before schedule. All of the workers were polite and very professional. We would recommend this company and team to anyone considering remodeling.
Showcase is proof that you get what you pay for. The cost was higher but you delivered quality work, on time, even during the awful rains! A recent appraisal of my home shows that what we paid Showcase has increased the value of my home by the same amount and I think we could get $25,000 more if we sold. Thanks!
We have already referred Showcase to a friend who, I understand, have contracted you to begin their renovation in January. We still love our kitchen! Even friends who are contractors are amazed at the job you did. Thanks again!
Our designer, Kim Norman, was nothing short of wonderful. The configuration she designed is highly functional as well as beautiful. She was there every step of the way. Any problems, concerns, information needs, scheduling, or even minor questions from us, were addressed thoroughly and quickly. Kim was always very helpful, enthusiastic, professional, and a pleasure to work with. She went “the extra mile” for us several times, even calling the window company for me when I mistakenly ordered an inappropriate window. Without her knowledge of colors and textures, I am sure our kitchen would not be as lovely as it is today. Every day I walk into my new kitchen and say “I LOVE THIS KITCHEN”. Thank you, Kim!
I really value Showcase's knowledgeability, reliability, and quality. Jim was easy to work with and his specifications perfectly embodied what I wanted and could afford.” Steve is wonderful! Steve kept me informed about what to expect and really cared about my ultimate satisfaction with the job. I had the same happy experience with these two professionals in 1999 for my kitchen remodel. I enjoy the results of these projects every day and would recommend Showcase to anyone planning to improve their home.
Kim did a great job designing and planning our kitchen remodel last year. With her help, we were able to make all our significant design choices up front, allowing for a relatively smooth construction project, which came in on budget and on schedule. Her help was invaluable in avoiding the stop and start pitfalls inherent in such a project. The result was a new kitchen that we love and will enjoy for years to come.
Dear Mr. Rice (Company Owner), I have intended to write to you for a few weeks now regarding the recent remodel of the kitchen in my condo that your company did for me. I wanted to thank you and, in particular, Mike Hartstein and Jeff Schmucker for doing such an amazing job with my kitchen and bar area. Everything turned out beautifully….it was exactly what I had envisioned. I began this process many months ago when I walked into your Encino showroom basically clueless about how to get this done. I had many ideas, but that was about it. I met Mike and we discussed what I wanted to do. From that point on I knew I would be in excellent hands and indeed the end result proved I was right. As a project manager, Jeff guided me through every step of the construction and really made it a painless experience. I was dreading running into delays and unpleasant surprises, but aside from a couple of minor issues, it was an incredibly easy experience under Jeff's management. All I really had to do was write a few checks and make a lot of choices….all easy stuff in the grand scheme of things. Both Mike and Jeff are true credits to your business and I thank you all very, very much. I will certainly recommend your company to my friends and colleagues.
Can't say enough about Showcase both in the planning and construction phase. They completely remodeled my kitchen - transformed it, really. Michael Hartstein is a superior designer, and Steve Love, the contractor, was outstanding in his management of the project. Each workman who worked on the project was superior in both skill and attitude. They got the job done ahead of schedule and left nothing behind no loose ends. Showcase is well worth the quality of product and service.
Kim, I hope this finds you well and prospering. My beautiful laundry room continues to dazzle all that see it. You worked nicely with me and my personal designers to achieve a space that is uplifting and functional. I appreciated your enthusiasm to make this all possible.
Showcase's greatest strengths are professionalism, friendliness, concern, communication, and timeliness. All contractors an subs were excellent. Brian (the electrician) was especially polite, friendly and concerned. Charlie and Kathleen were awesome as was Dawn and Tony. They made the job go so smoothly.
I found the most impressive strengths were Charlie Rutledge's ability to design and space plan all of the elements in my kitchen from the size and placement of the cabinetry and the angle of new walls, right down to the smallest decorative finish detail…. with everything coming together with precision. The masterful scheduling and coordinating of the subcontractors and tradesmen displayed by Steve Love was a joy to experience. This allowed for fast and efficient completion of the work…. NO DELAYS!” As for any weaknesses, I would have to give that some serious thought, none come to mind!
Designer Ernesto and Construction Manager Steve did a fabulous job from beginning to end on our master bedroom and bath remodel in 2010. The work progressed very professionally. We were always kept advised as to what would be happening and when. Everyone sent to our home was so nice and considerate of us and our home. The electricians and plumbers, tile and cabinet workers and every other building trade showed up when they said they would and did a great job. And when we called, they responded.
The foreman, Tony, was super. He was very communicative and insisted on quality work. He felt like a member of the family by the time the project was done. We chose Showcase for our kitchen without shopping around because we had been so pleased with them in a 3 bathroom remodel a few years prior. We liked the fact that no dumpster was parked on the street and trash was regularly carted away.
I rate Showcase and Forest as the Best of the Best. I would return to you for future work and recommend you to anyone contemplating a new construction/remodel.
I have done remodeling with other contractors in the past. Showcase was very "turn-key" for me. Charlie, Kathleen & Dawn were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Charlie really listened to my needs, wants and expectations and made them a reality. Tony could not have been a better fit. He went far beyond my expectations and made sure that things were done in a timely manner to the highest of standards. he always made sure I was "in the loop" and that I was happy with the progress and the results. All of the contractors were "top notch" and it whose in my home. Showcase is an exceptional team. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone. Thank you for a great job!
When I first met Kim a the showroom in Westlake Village, I knew instantly that she was very knowledgeable. Prior to this encounter, I had met with two other building contractors and was concerned about their approach to create and finish my kitchen and master bathroom remodel. Kim on the other hand, explained in detail, the product and process on how to create the kitchen and master bathroom of my dreams! Kim has an incredible eye and talent to create the look suitable for her clients' tastes. I knew that I was in good hands right out of the gate. During the remodel project I found it very impressive that Kim's attention to every detail was invaluable. It was very reassuring to know that Kim was on top of everything from start to finish!! I realized early on that I had very few decisions to make as far as paint colors, faucets, fixtures, etc. Kim knew what worked, I trusted and appreciated her many selections. End result….I have the most amazing kitchen and master bathroom! I love it and love Kim Norman for making my home something I am very proud to come home to.
Showcase was very reliable and professional, on time and on budget.
