Recent Review: I don’t even know how to begin this review for Tomer Malki from ITM Construction! Let me preface and say that my husband and I (first-time homeowners) bought a fixer-upper in the Mid-city area. The house was built in the 1920s and needed a great deal of TLC. And by that I mean a complete renovation (kitchen, bathrooms, wall removal, refinishing the hardwood floors, plumbing, electricity – you name it!). We love old, historic homes, and were looking to work with someone who could preserve our house’s integrity, while offering a modern update. We had been in touch with a handful of other contractors during escrow, all of whom made us doubt our decision to buy the house, saying, more or less, that it would be a massive, lengthy, and expensive project. After having our plans approved by the city, we met a few other contractors, but still didn’t feel like we found the right person. We finally met Tomer, which literally felt like a fresh breath of (optimistic) air! He spent over three hours carefully scrutinizing the house, offering his vision for what it could become, making suggestions that would maximize our space while minimizing our expenses, and chanting, “There are no problems. Only solutions.” After the meeting, my husband and I felt Tomer was the first and only contractor who actually made us feel like the job would get done! And that is exactly the type of attitude Tomer maintained throughout our renovation project. He was extremely communicative, arriving to the house every single day, keeping us updated on the progress, and consulting with us along the way. He’s smart, creative, easygoing, and has a sharp eye. He is such a pleasure to work with! And, I should stress, he also works with an incredible team of highly talented individuals! His team was able to recreate the patterns resembling the original plaster from the 1920s inside the house, while matching the stucco from the outside. They built a new master closet from scratch. We also bought reclaimed tiles, and we were so relieved that they were installed flawlessly. I’m talking about one hundred year old fire-glazed tiles. (We even sent photos to the company where we purchased them, and the owner said it was one of the best installations she had ever seen during her twenty years in the business.) The crewmembers were always friendly, responsive, and hard-working. And our kitchen is a dream!! Tomer helped us design the kitchen, which was a challenge, given the limitations because of HPOZ (historic city zoning). He planned a perfect layout, getting into details of the proper lighting, the placement of appliances, and the types of cabinets we would utilize the most. The cabinetry is of the finest quality, along with the beautiful granite installation. When we had ideas for how we wanted the house to be designed (and there were plenty), he always found ways to make it happen. For instance, Tomer was able to assist us with our own vision: transforming antique dressers into bathroom vanities!! He was also able to refer us to different stores with competitive prices (coupled with his contractor’s discount). After only three months of renovation, completed according to our contract, we are now living in our dream home!! The level of workmanship, the dedication, the attention to small details – all exceeded our expectations!! We wish to give Tomer our highest recommendation, and we have no doubt we will hire him for future projects! Thank you, Tomer! We sincerely appreciate all your time and effort. We couldn’t have done this without you!
