Chris couldn’t be a more pleasant person. He listens, gives sound advice, is very upfront and honest, and arrives perfectly on time, every time. He works hard and does a great job. He should be first on your list as someone to call. I very highly recommend Meryl and Miller!
Caballo Hills (Oakland)
Thank you so much for the beautiful staging job you did. We are blown away, and I can’t stop looking at the photos! I’m so glad our realtor and her team introduced us to you and your husband. Thank you to both of you for helping our unit show so well.
Noe Valley (San Francisco)
Meryl and Miller are great. Chris is really good about explaining the different ways you could approach a project and the pros and cons of each of those options. He’s extremely reasonably priced, sticks to his estimate, and isn’t going to upsell you. I’ve recommended him to many friends who now feel the same way.
They have reasonable rates, are great communicators, and are willing to work within stated budgets. They work quickly and are super tidy (which is especially important when one has a little one running barefoot around the house). Can’t recommend them enough.
Noe Valley (San Francisco)
We are new to the East Bay after moving here from Boston and needed various jobs done in our new condo, but didn’t know anyone. I found Meryl & Miller on Yelp and couldn’t be happier with their work. Chris is excellent and can fix just about anything, shows up on time, works hard and is pleasant and friendly. Meryl designed cabinets to go in an awkward space in our new condo and, although they have not been delivered yet, I know that they will be perfect when they are installed. I recommend them highly.
Jack London Square (Oakland)
After my determined attempt to sand and stain my own wood wall, I was disappointed with the noticeable sanding marks and decided that more practice was in order. I contacted Chris and we talked about various options for completing the project. He re-sanded and stained the wall and it looks fantastic. Sanding the railings and awning were a tedious task, but he was steadfast and I’m really happy with the results. It may take a couple weeks to get on his calendar, but it’s worth the wait–Chris is conscientious and does excellent work.
Fantastic! I didn’t have a huge job, but a few medium-sized ones, and Chris came and got them done perfectly and quickly, and very reasonably priced. I am the least handy person in the universe and it’s good to know there’s someone friendly and capable out there to help!
Meryl has coordinated the rehab of several projects for me. She does great work, doesn’t take longer than she should and bills efficiently. Can’t get better than that! Would recommend her to other real estate professionals or clients looking for design, organization, and/or construction help.
Mission (San Francisco)
My house was built in the early 1920’s. There have been several remodels. Tying in 100 years of mis-matched materials and construction styles is tough. My garage hangs partly over a small creek. The creek flooded badly, lifting the garage off several piers. Chris figured a way to jack-up the garage and reattach it, install new posts as needed and strapped the bottom of the garage to the posts and the piers so theoretically it won’t lift off the next time. These guys know tools and they know how to solve problems. They don’t complain about the fact that they are dealing with 100 year-old structures. In fact, they find it a challenge.
Thank you Meryl for all of your help! You really saved me a lot of time and headache. I don’t know how you do it. It’s harder than it looks. Thank you!
The property Meryl staged for me has to be the most improved unit I’ve ever seen in 18 years of doing this, staging versus not staged.
SoMA (San Francisco)
Meryl, you are a genius, your colors turned out great!
Chris is a smart guy and was able to problem solve and figure out what needed to be done, all while explaining it to me as we went. Couldn’t be happier with his service. I’ll call him again in a heartbeat.
These guys are excellent. I’ve used them for simple things like touch up painting as well as big jobs like moving an 80 ft long fence and building a custom built in entertainment cabinet. They are very conscientious and careful to stay within your budget. They can offer excellent design suggestions. But most importantly their work quality is exemplary.
Upper Rockridge (Oakland)
As a realtor I know how hard it is to find reliable resources. I’ve referred Chris to neighbors who’ve been very pleased with his work, and recently had him knock a few things off my own list… somehow my house never seems to be the highest priority! Chris is careful and efficient, I trust him in my home and will recommend him to friends and clients.
Leona Heights (Oakland)
I just want to say we have been blown away but your services and it makes me realize I couldn’t have done this at all alone. It’s been worth every penny. Thank you!
