“Joe has a unique model in that he is both a realtor and general contractor so when we were interviewing agents to help us spruce up our home to then sell and then buy a fixer upper Joe was hands down the smart choice. Instead of this guy for this and that guy for that and fielding phone calls and emails from multiple people or companies it was just Joe for everything. This made the whole process comfortable and efficient for us and Joe truly cares and it shows.”

-Shepherd Family Trust

“I needed someone to hold my hand as I was afraid of buying and remodeling a fixer upper but that is what I could afford and I was tired of renting paying someone else’s mortgage. Joe listens and gives options and even provided a cost vs value breakdown so I was able to make an informed decision. He not only found me the perfect home but he and his crew made it beautiful. He texted me photos daily while I was at work which made me feel comfortable being away while the work was being done. I love my new home and my new kitchen and Joe is a blessing as he truly cares and wants you happy! I am now a happy California home owner thanks to California Happy Homes.”

-Mrs. Simpson

“There are so many agents out there and websites for real estate but there is only one Joe. His business is smart in that he is a licensed realtor and general contractor. When I was selling my family home to downsize Joe fought assertively for my top dollar. Who better to highlight the unique features of your home than a realtor that is also a general contractor? His knowledge of construction on a Victorian home definetely helped me get the right buyer at the right price and I am very picky. Joe will fight for you. I appreciate him helping me go to the next chapter of my life and it was a very emotional sale. Joe was respectful of my feelings and professional throughout. When you are looking at the zillion realtors who promise this and that ( i went thru 2 before finding Joe) and they do not deliver, do yourself a favor and go with the one stop shop of California Happy Homes. He is a good person that truly cares and it shows.”

-Mrs. Goldberg

“I wish I met Joe first! We hired a local contractor, gave them our trust inside our home and our hard earned money and it all went to hell. We found Joe thru a direct mail postcard and had him over for a free estimate. He studied the problem which was foundation/ electrical/plumbing and then fixtures and finishes. He turned around an affordable solution in 48hrs and his crew which are NOT scruffy subcontractors even brought our dog treats to help calm him thru the construction. Joe checks on the job regularly and does a walk thru with you to ensure you are 100% happy before you pay the balance. It is this kind of service, care and accountability that is hard to find these days. California Happy Homes made us very happy in our home!”

“We got 3 bids and went with California Happy Homes for many reasons:
~Other companies tried to push on the first meeting.
~One company was very late to a meeting with no courtesy call or text message.
~One company wanted half up front.

~ No pressure.
~ Punctual.
~ Balance on completion.
~ References.
~ Warranty.
~ Introduced us to the crew so we would feel comfortable who would be on our property and so my wife would feel comfortable while I was at work.
~ Did great work at a great price.”

“As a busy CEO that travels a lot, trust was my main criteria not so much money or time. Joe is unique in that he does it all. This works well for me as I have no time to deal with these things nor want to have to take the time to meet with many people and the few I did meet with were no Joe. I started with a new bathroom and when I saw how smooth the work was going and received text photos daily from Joe while I was traveling I decided to do new floors and paint. Just months later my job forced me to move and sell and I chose Joe over a family friend to sell my home quickly at the right price. He is so proud and passionate about the work he does it was obvious he was the right guy to then sell the home. He updates you in person where and when it is convenient for you or via phone or text or email throughout the process. I liked that. He is a fighting bulldog for your top dollar. I liked that. He is appreciative of the work. I liked that. He took the time to plan a strategy with me that I approved prior. I liked that. Joe is one of the few people in a world full of technology that understands good old fashioned customer service is key. I liked that.”

-Mr. Hetzel

“Joe and his crew did an excellent job rebuilding my front fence and restoring my redwood deck. The fence was being held up by an old wisteria tree which I wanted preserved. Not only did they save the tree, they made sure that the new fence was properly bolted to my home securely!

While there, the crew members were polite and friendly to all my nosey neighbors! They cleaned up EVERY day so I did not have to worry about construction messes! At the completion of the job everything was sparkling clean and all my outdoor furniture was returned to its original place. They even left extra paint so that I could make touch ups when needed!

Joe discussed what work was to be performed, and then discussed and recommended options for other repairs. I appreciated his open and pressure free solutions.

I’ll definitely use California Happy Homes again. The pricing is fair, but not the cheapest. I appreciate having work done according to code using the highest standards and that the little details that you don’t notice are taken care of so that the job looks picture perfect. What a relief to know that the work is done quickly and honestly with a guarantee if something goes wrong later.

I am a “happy” California Homes customer!”
