Our clients say the nicest things

We have been providing property services to the residential/domestic market for over 20 years so it's not surprising that our clients have said some lovely things about us. here are just some of the things they've said...

"I love the house now and I got exactly what I set out to achieve with great service from day one. I would highly recommend GJE Construction to anyone undertaking this sort of project. They were very flexible and worked with me to achieve what I really wanted."
Julie Grundman, client

"So would you recommend GJE Construction? - Without a doubt, in fact I have already introduced them to two other potential clients."

Glen Reiner, client

"Since 1995, Gary Edgar has done substantial refurbishments to various houses and flats in the Hyde Park estate area that are let to big corporations such as the US Embassy and insurance companies. Hundreds of thousands of pounds are spent on each property, changing wiring, plumbing, kitchens, bathrooms and sometimes new-builds. We find Gary trustworthy, on time, and with reasonable prices. His friendly team are all very professional and work to a good standard. He manages to comply with all difficult requirements. Once the job is done, he attends to make sure the landlord and tenant are happy."

"We'd bought a Victorian house in South London to convert into five flats. Gary Edgar is the best property project manager we've ever encountered. He's very well organised, the finish is superb, and he did a fantastic job in the time span he said he would. We're very impressed."

Angel Grundman, Fulham Timber Merchants

"I've worked with Gary Edgar refurbishing about 40 properties over 15 years, from tiny local flats to six-storey houses in Holland Park. His work is of a very high quality. He is amenable and has a professional outlook, and always gets on well with his clients. In the building trade, you know when someone is good. I'd even have him work on my own house."
Alan Mitchell, electrical contractor

"We had planned to do an extension for about two years, and wanted to make changes that we would be happy with forever. We had obtained five or six generic quotes, but weren't comfortable with any of the people who had quoted. We knew the work would be long and quite stressful, and didn't really want to be entering into discussions, for want of a better word, with builders every day.

When we first met Gary, he stayed for three or four hours to go over every single detail from A to Z. He gave us a dossier containing a complete breakdown, right down to the cost of an outside toilet for the builders. He wasn't the cheapest, but we're very pleased with the result and feel that we got good value for the money spent. His professional team were on site for about six months. There was never any aggravation if things changed during the work, and we were continually kept up-to-date with progress and costs.

We now have a completely refitted garage and kitchen extension, dining room and TV room, plus a re-landscaped garden, patio area and pond. We have under floor heating, new drains and soak ways, retiled roofs and the house redecorated inside and out. As well as managing the range of building professionals, Gary brought in specialists to deal with such things as cutting down trees, selecting plants from nurseries and fitting the new pond.
It was a diverse job, and we didn't want to be dealing with many different people. Gary managed the project very professionally and he remains our one reference point to whom we can come back to with any teething problems that may arise and this also gives us peace of mind."

"We wanted to extend the kitchen and bedroom, add a new summerhouse, patio, path, driveway and garage, and re-turf the garden. Our previous builder told us the work would take four months. After eight months, they'd only done the groundwork and left us in a financial mess.
Gary was just amazing! He came in and took over. In the morning, the site manager would say what they planned to do that day, and by the evening it would be done. Everybody knew what they were doing, and sorted out any problems straightaway. They were well-mannered, spoke professionally and explained everything. Work was done promptly and properly accounted for. Within four months, everything was finished. I can't say enough good about Gary Edgar."

Karen Higgins, client

"I have worked with Gary Edgar on about 12 domestic extensions and loft conversions in London and Surrey. He's very knowledgeable and easy-going with the right attitude - he doesn't have pound signs in front of him every time you speak! He wants to do things properly and correctly, and his works are of a high standard."

"Gary has done two loft conversions in my own houses over the years, and I did the air conditioning, plumbing and heating works on Gary's Hamilton Terrace and Southwick Terrace projects. It speaks volumes that I used Gary to do work for me."

Wayne Peck, M&E contractor

"Gary Edgar & Co. carried out a garage conversion for me. From survey, Gary produced a drawing and quotation within two days. He attended every day and gave progress reports, and the works were completed within the eight-week schedule.
His team of skilled tradesmen were incredibly polite and friendly, and worked with military precision under Gary's project management. The quality and finish of his workmanship is first rate.
When it came to constructing a 30m2 garden room and landscaping some months later, I had no hesitation in awarding him the instruction. I have since recommended him too many colleagues for large projects. They were as delighted as I with the outcome. Highly recommended."
