Here's what some of our customers have to say...

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is to acknowledge the generosity, talent and kindness of Alon Toker, who has helped with the development and construction of the Kids Cancer Connection Family House. Alon has made himself available at all stages of construction to assist with guidance, information, materials and labor. Without his efforts, the KCC Family House may not have become a reality. This home is used primarily to house children with cancer and their families when they come to Los Angeles for treatment. The KCC Family House also provides educational services, social activities and support group meetings for children and parents as well as many other psychosocial services for these deserving families. We really appreciate everything Alon has done as do the many families we host. Kids Cancer Connection is thriving because of the support and commitment of people like Alon and we look forward to working with him again soon. Warmest Wishes,

Enriching the lives of children with cancer.

To any homeowner considering a remodel:

"Have you been considering a remodel for years, but you don't know where to start? Do you want a bigger house,but are afraid to go through the hassle of a remodel? Are you afraid of being taken to the cleaners by a contractor? I have an answer to all of your problems. MEGA BUILDERS. My wife and I had been considering a remodel for years, and after finally deciding to start the project we hired an architect. Dealing with the architect and with the city (plan approval) took much longer than anticipate*. We had very little time to select a contractor and get our house completed by the end of summer (our original goal). After speaking with several contractors, we were concerned that we would not be able to afford the changes we wanted to make (beware of architect's estimates*). Then we met with Alon Toker from Mega Builders. A friend of a friend referred us to Mega Builders. The reference raved about Mega Builders and offered to show us their work. We toured the home and were impressed with the quality of the workmanship and the positive comments the homeowner had about Mega Builders. They met both the homeowners' budget and schedule. Based on our friend's reference, the face that Mega Builders bid was VERY competitive and the fact that they could start immediately, we hired Mega Builders. Mega Builders gave us a 12-week estimate to complete our project. The demolition crew showed up at precisely 8:00 am on May 20th (the day they said they would start), and we were able to move back into our home 13 weeks after completion. The only reason they took one extra week was due to delays in getting routine inspections (the city was understaffed for all of the construction taking place during our project). All change orders were handled fairly, although there were very few changes. Alon helped us clarify any discrepancies on our plans prior to signing the final contract. This helped us avoid making very many changes during the project. We can't say enough about the construction crew who built our house. The foreman was very professional, and took great pride in his work and the work of his crew. He would always get our input when there were questions about the plans, and helped us with some of the many decisions we had to make during the project. Our home turned out better than we expected. Our neighbors all rave about how good it looks. We would definitely use Mega Builders again, and would recommend them to anyone (including friends and family)".

*If we did another remodel project, we would use Mega Builders to do the design portion. Our architect did not do a very good job of designing a remodel that would fit our budget, and was not very timely.

Re: Letter of Recommendation

"Thank you for a most beautiful kitchen!

Even though you came highly recommended and we read great things about you in the Los Angeles Times, we wondered how our project would unfold. When so much depends on the contractor of one's choice, a lot of things can go wrong. We, like all homeowners, had nothing but our faith and trust to guide us. We hoped that the promises made, would be followed by corresponding actions. We also wondered how true, your stated commitment to our satisfaction, would prove to be. Mega you have come through with flying colors! Our kitchen is airy, functional and warm. We enjoy it tremendously, and plan to use it for many more years to come. We would like to extend our thanks to all the good people who took part in this effort. Everyone was cordial and mindful. The crews demonstrated sensitivity to our comfort and well being, and most importantly, all were dedicated professionals and accepted no compromises. Without exception, we can report high commitment to the project and an unwavering dedication to our satisfaction. Kudos again for a job well done, and keep up the good work. There are plenty of homeowners out there in search of an excellent and reliable contractor. We wish all will be fortunate enough to find you. "

RE: LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION

Dear Alon;

"Thank you for helping us to achieve a truly beautiful addition to our home. From the very start of the process to the finished product, you and your staff were there every step of the way to help us in achieving our vision. You and your design staff were able to listen to our wishes, both spoken and unspoken, and suggest a design that was truly unique, gave us more that we originally thought we wanted, and yet very practical. Now that it is built, we are the envy of all who see it. Although we lived at the house during construction, it was not nearly the horror story that everyone warned us about. We were pleased with the way that your crews showed up to work when you said they would. We were also pleased with the way that most of the changes to the design were accommodated by you without additional cost. For the most part, the costs for the change orders were fair and reasonable. Additionally, we want to especially commend your finish crew for the professional way in which they completed the project. They were indispensable in helping us to design the finish look and feel of the remodel. Not only do we have a beautiful addition, but most importantly, it is both functional and a reflection of our tastes and personality. We would not hesitate to recommend you."

- Very truly yours; S. and J. C. -

Mr. Toker,

"I am writing this letter to let you and your staff know how happy we are to have chosen Mega-Builders. You know how difficult it was for us to "trust" somebody to do our remodel/addition since we were almost involved with a firm who was not even legal. Every aspect of our construction experience with Mega-Builders was a complete joy. You gave us four different plans to choose from (none of which any of the other companies came close to), you started ON TIME, you came EVERY DAY, and you finished AHEAD OF SCHEDULE! All of your workers were polite, hard working, and craftsmen. If we had a question, it was answered. If we had an idea to change something, it was changed. If we wanted something done differently, it was done. Our friends went through a re-model at the same time we did (with a different contractor), and when they came over to our house one day after Church, they were very upset. You see, their contractor had not made a THIRD of the progress you guys had. I told them that when it was raining, you guys came into our house, put up a tarp, and started nailing down a foundation under it! AMAZING! It is so hard to imagine what our house used to look like. It is so beautiful now! Like I said, EVERY aspect was a joy. I thank you Mr. Toker for helping us like you have. You truly care about the people and it's not "just a job" for you, and that shows. Karin, the kids, and I really appreciate you and your company's hard work and commitment to quality. If anybody would like to call me for a reference, please call me at home ###-###-####, or at work ###-###-####. I will (and do) recommend Mega-Builders to anybody thinking of ANY type of construction. Don't even bother with somebody else, believe me, it would be a waste of time."

- Thank you, M.E. -

Dear Alon,

"It is with the greatest pleasure that Chess and I thank you for the masterful job on our remodel. From start to finish, the project was so filled with pleasant surprises and craftsmanship that we had to pinch ourselves a few times! The master bath ended up more warm and elegant than we even imagined it could be. In this world of cookie-cutter sameness and fast food enterprises, it is good to know that there are perfectionists such as you. The quality of the work, the speed of delivery and the professionalism of each member of your team were gratifying indeed. It took so much of the stress out of the process for both of us. Again, we thank you very much. Under your expert guidance, a longtime dream became reality. You have helped us to create our own personal and private sanctuary. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you again."

- Sincerely yours, L.B. -

To Whom it May Concern,

"I would like to tell you about our family's overwhelmingly positive experience with Mega Builders. This wonderful company completely remodeled our home, including our kitchen and two bathrooms. Before meeting with Mega, we spent two frustrating years, and many thousands of dollars dealing with an architect and several "recommended" contractors. The time brought us no closer to our dream home. We found in Mega, not only a competent contractor, but also a partner in our dream. Budget and design were our two primary concerns. Mega Builders' help in the design of the project was invaluable. While my wife and I were very involved in the design, Mega Builders helped us understand the impact that our decisions would have on the cost and on the length of the project. At the same time, they helped us maintain a high standard of style and quality without undermining the budget framework that was set early on. The length of the job was also a big concern of ours considering that we had to leave the house for the duration of the project. . Mega Builders promised to have the work completed in twelve weeks. It came as no surprise to us when exactly twelve weeks after the start of this massive project, the work was done and we moved back in. No matter how important addressing these concerns was to us, in the end, the most important accomplishment is that Mega Builders turned our home into a perfect reflection of our family, our lifestyle, and our taste. We are endlessly grateful to the employees of Mega Builders for their hard work and care in making this project a reality. It was a pleasure to deal every day with the employees at Mega Builders. Their caring for the job went beyond mere functionality. They are true craftsmen that care deeply for the needs of their clients. This separates them from most people who work in the remodeling industry. They understand when a house needs to be a home. In summary, the entire project was a smashing success. The work is top notch, as you can see. If anyone needs any type of general contracting work, we whole-heartedly recommend that they use Mega Builders!"

- Mr. & Mrs. B, Manhattan Beach -

To Whom it May Concern, "With your company's helpful bargains, our low income family was able to repair and reroof our 30 year old highly damaged roof with a brand new one. The appearance is like snow on the roof, a silver white. It was quick, one-day job in March of 1994, and it is in fine condition today, 1995. Mega Builders made it easier for a senior citizen. Thank you so much from the Hammond Family!!"

- Sincerely, The H Family of Pomona, California -

Dear Mr. Toker,

"I was writing concerning some work that Mega Builders did for me. Your company was very fair. After talking to five other contractors, I decided on Mega. You guys were very thorough in pointing out that the contract to me, and the work was finished in a timely manner, and the job was well done. So, to anyone that is looking for a reliable contractor, I highly recommend Mega Builders."

- Thanks!! Mr. T, Los Angeles -

Dear Mr. President,

"Your company constructed a room addition to my home. I was totally pleased with your workmanship, scheduling, professionalism, and last but not least, the cost. I was so pleased, that when it came time to repair damage to my house by the earthquake, the first and only company I called was Mega Builders. Again, I was very pleased with all of your work. I can honestly say that I would not hesitate to recommend Mega Builders to anyone planning on doing any type of construction to their home. Thank You."

- Sincerely, Mr. M, Canoga Park -

Dear Mr. Toker,

"I just wanted to write a note to say that I had Mega Builders remodel my bathroom, and your company is fantastic. Everyone is courteous, considerate, and the workers are very clean, they worked with me. My bathroom looks fantastic. If I had any type of building, remodeling, or anything I would have Mega Builders so it. Everything looks great!!"

- Thanks, Mrs. G, Alhambra -

To Everyone at Mega,

"I had some work done by your company in February of 1995. The work was started on time, finished on time, and the clean-up was super. So I do recommend Mega Builders. Everyone was competent and courteous. If anybody should ever need anything in construction or remodeling, I suggest they give you a try. They'll be glad they did."

- Sincerely, Mrs. F, North Hollywood -

Dear Mr. Toker,

"I hope you don't mind if I write and tell you one more time how satisfied I am with the great job Mega Builders did in repairing earthquake damage to my home. I think you should change the name of your company to Mega Magic since my house is totally transformed. The new tile floors in my bathroom are really beautiful, and were done by real professionals. Those rooms look totally different than they ever did before. I am so pleased with the chimney repair. Your workman did an outstanding job on the brickwork, and I can't believe how well they cleaned everything up. Your workers are real craftsmen. Both the entire inside and outside of the house are just beautiful thanks to Mega's commitment to getting the job done. I continually tell people about my extraordinary and positive experience with Mega Builders. It is so rare to find a construction company whose priorities include qualities like: being on time, cleaning up after every day, and having a commitment to serving your clients. Thank you for providing the opportunity for my home environment to again be a lovely place to return to at the end of the day."

- Thanks So Much, Mrs. E, Granada Hills -

I purchased a house in 2006 that needed some major remodeling. I hired MegaBuilders to do the work. They upgraded my kitchen, 2 bathrooms, removed 1 bathroom and add the extra space to another room. They also did hardwood floors in most of the 2nd floor and stairs and put in new rails in. They also painted the whole house, inside and outside. The results were better that I could have imagined. I am very happy with the result and highly recommend Alon and his team.

- Pierre Z -

This company is the real deal. Alon has excellent workers: easy to deal with and efficient about their job. They don't waste your time or theirs. It's their focus that helps you out the most because with it they meet their deadlines. Just outstanding people to work with. I was able to tell right away that they're detail-oriented. If you hire them you'll see it too. Still, for all the hard work they put in, they remain friendly and very polite. They were a pleasure to work with, even considering the extent of the work that needed to be done. I found every aspect of their work and service to be more than satisfactory. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that I'll be calling them back, but I'll tell it anyway!

- Michael F -

I came across this company reading Yelp reviews, but when I started asking my neighbors about the remodelers they had contracted over the years, Mega Builders would crop up. This was especially true among those whose homes had been upgraded in a big way, which was exactly what I was looking to do. I was sold on them because thanks to my neighbors' (gracious) house tours, I was able to see for myself their handiwork. Of course, now the best measure of service I look to is the work they've done for me. When I met Alon in person, the thing I liked about him right off the bat was that he didn't make me feel cornered or pushed into settling for his recommendations. He recognized that what I had to say mattered; it is my home, after all. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

- Monique L -

Mega Builders will leave you a satisfied client. They're clever and very efficient. They also understand design and architecture. They accomplished what they said they would within the established timeframe, and, very importantly, within the established budget. Thank You So Much! As their client, I was able to observe workers that had fine talent for their work. They exhibit skill and precision in each task. In all, they're smart and arrive prepared every day. I'd trust them again with future projects, both indoor and outdoor ones. They have the skill, the customer service, and the right price. Because they're customer-oriented, they're easy to talk to. That was something different for me. I've dealt with other builders that are just difficult in every respect. Not these guys!

- Alexandro L -

We have worked with Alon Toker and Mega Builders on numerous projects, most recently for a project in Pasadena. They are very knowledgeable about the city requirements and know what it takes to get your project the necessary permits to build the house of your dreams. We highly recommend them.

- Laura C -

Alon and his guys were the best for my rebuilding. My project was rather large-scaled and they did exceptional work for me. The project was completed on time and it came in on budget. They told me they would do this but I was still preparing myself for it to go over budget. It was a great surprise. I underestimated them when I accepted their quote, but they sure proved me wrong. A great team to have working for you. Alon listens to you and makes himself available to your questions at all times. He never gave me the runaround! I am a satisfied and happy client. I recommend Mega Builders to anyone looking for a builder in the area. My house looks absolutely stunning!

- Lifechild S -

I got estimates from three other companies but Mega Builders offered the best service from the start. I had to wait a whole week for one of the other guys to return my calls. When it came down to it, I made my decision by going for the company with the most thought-out plan of what needed to be done to improve our home. I didn't get to see how the other guys worked, but I saw how these guys did it. They kept an eye out for everything. When they'd finish for the day, they'd clean up after themselves. I have no complaints about that. Yes, the whole time they were over it was noisy but now that it's all finished, WOW! Best decision ever!!

After my visit with Alon, I felt comfortable taking a chance on Mega Builders, even before getting fully acquainted with their work. I'm writing this now because that chance paid off in a home that's 100 times more comfortable and livable. They do unbelievable work. After my initial contact with Alon I knew I could put him in charge of the remodeling work around my house. Fixing your home is sometimes a harried experience. But that's not the case with Mega Builders. They're efficient, easy to talk to, and make your life nicer with their outstanding work. Everything is properly installed, fixed, and finished. They're also upfront about costs and time; definitely no curveballs here. This is a company you can trust.

Relationship: Colleague Project Date: January 2010 Project Price: more than $100,000 Mega Builders is absolutely meticulous and of the highest quality -- even to my perfectionist standards. They seems to know just about everything there is in construction and there seem to be no standard house building techniques... And everyone in Mega Builders are absolutely nice, polite and respectful of owners, children, pets... There are just not enough good things to tell about Mega Builders! Happy As Can Be

Relationship: Client Project Date: April 2004 Project Price: more than $100,000 Designed and built an extensive remodel of our home in 2004. Work involved moving interior walls, moving windows, earthquake updates, complete new wiring and electric panels, new air conditioning ducts, new flooring, complete new master bath and walk in closet, lighting, etc. We had excellent communication during both design and construction phases. He convinced me to contract with him when he said #1 - your selection of contractor has got to be based on trust, and #2 - he offered a guarantee that he would be finished in 10 weeks from our start date - I did not have to ask for it. He finished in 10 weeks and 3 days of start. There was no bickering at all with changes and cost. Finished within contracted cost. Work was excellent. His crews were diligent, careful, knowlegeable, hard working, & respectful.

Relationship: Colleague Project Date: July 2007 Project Price: more than $100,000 Mega Builders are by far the most professional company that have participated in my project. Their knowledge of technical details and how to choose the right technique for installation of various components made a big difference. To that date, every area of the project that they were responsible for is flawless.

Relationship: Client Project Date: May 2006 Project Price: more than $100,000 Mega Builders rebuilt our house in San Marino, California. The existing house was not in very good shape but the lot was big and had a lot of potential. For those who know, the City of San marino has very strict guidelines for home designs. Mega Builders was able to work within those guidelines and built a wonderful and functional home with excellent details. Mega Builders was always professional and on time with their work. Any delays were caused by us making changes along the way. I would definitely recommend them and if I were to do another major project like this, I would definitely consider Mega Builders again.

Relationship: Colleague Project Date: January 2010 Project Price: more than $100,000 I have had the pleasure to work with Mega Builders on 2 very large, very intricate custom home construction projects. Alon Toker’s work is second to none. As a company, his staff has the ability to implement changes seamlessly on the jobsite when the scope of planning has changed . The craftsmanship and attention to detail is simply amazing, and from my experience as a sub contractor, each team member that I have worked with on his projects responds immediate to questions and details that produces perfect end results. I highly recommend Mega builders . Maelisa Reed Lighting

- Buz Twarowski -

we've hired Mega Builder as our contractor on our adding additions/renovating project on our single family home ( we pretty much rebuild the whole house.....)

Since this is the first time I am personally involve in any project this size ( well.. I should say, I've never involved in any kind of building project in any size ) . At first, it was pretty scary as I've heard so many things about people having problem on budget controlling, and unable to finish the project in time. but during the pre-construction meetings with Alon from Mega Builder. He provided a detailed list of all possible cost according to our wish list, and the approx. time of the construction. which I gotta say, they were both pretty accurate except there was a week delay on the construction caused by the city Inspector. it was really nothing considering it was originally projected as a 28 weeks project.

although, it was a long project, but I have to admit it was a pleasant experience, especially the result turned out before than i expected.
