Below are some testimonials for home remodeling work we recently completed:
Marc S. – master suite addition
We knew somebody who told us about Ron and Eden Builders and then read some good things on Yelp. We called Ron and he came over and we talked about what we were thinking about doing in our house. The first thing about Ron that comes across right away is that he’s just a really nice guy. We liked him right away, so, we decided to do a small job first, new cabinets and a re-tile of our bathroom floor. If we liked how that went, then maybe we’d do a major re-model that we were thinking about, and add on a master bedroom and bath. Well, it went very well and the bathroom looked great (Ron’s cabinet guys are fantastic). But it was Ron’s attitude when things were not quite right or if we had a problem, that’s when Ron is most impressive. If you’re not happy about something, there are no questions asked, it just gets taken care of. Ron makes sure that the costumer is satisfied and he checks in everyday to make sure that you are. He is always available to talk and you never get attitude or arguments or excuses.So, we decided to do the big remodel, a from the ground up addition, to match the look and style of the existing structure. Ron drew up some plans and we went back and forth with ideas. Ron brought in his architect Sean, and he quickly drew up the details. Ron gave us his bid which seemed very fair and we went for it.Everything was done to code and Eden builders handled getting all the permits and did all the business of dealing with the city. We never had to get involved with any of that.Ron said the job would take 3 1/2 to 4 months and that’s exactly how long it took. He knows the best places to buy the materials that we needed, the tile and marble and the hardwood floors and Ron went with us and helped us choose the best stuff at the best prices. Ron’s crews were always here when they were supposed to be here and all the guys were friendly, professional and experienced. We got to like everybody who worked here and now that’s it’s done, I’m kind of missing not having the guys around anymore. Luis is Ron’s main guy, the foreman on the job. Luis is great, very knowledgeable in Cyndi Y., West Hollywood – complete condo remodel
Just completed the remodel of my West Hollywood Condo – and Ron and Eden Builders were the reason I survived. Let’s be honest, remodels are tough experiences. And I didn’t have a lot of experience in the area. But Ron was truly my saving grace and the reason why I now love my new kitchen, amazing shower, new hardwood floors, berber carpet and beautiful paint job. Basically I’ve got a completely new unit.We triple bid the project and Ron had the second to lowest bid. We discussed and he was able to share with me why his bid was where it was. I liked him immediately and felt he was trustworthy — and was not disappointed : )Ron was not only patient and detail oriented, but conscientious about the schedule and costs. A few things slipped and took longer than anticipated, but he owned it and was proactive about the new schedule. He was over-accommodating when I wanted to add new toilets (arranging to get them for me) and helped make design decisions – regarding the subway tile (which looks amazing!) and caesarstone counters. His crew was hardworking and truly nice people – they were working in and out of my place for almost two months and most of the time I wasn’t there. They always left the place as clean as it possibly could be. My HOA has crazy tough regulations for any contractor working in our building – Ron had all the right paperwork and his crew adhered to every rule. Thankfully, as my neighbors watch like hawks.Simply put, Ron is gem. An honest contractor and a great human being. He is generous to a fault and extremely communicative via text, email and phone. I’m definitely a high maintenance customer and Ron earned every penny on this job. I’ve only Yelped about 3-4 things, and Eden Builders and Ron was worth taking the time. I have already recommended him to two friends, which for me says a lot because the last thing I’d want is to have a friend be pissed about something so big. If you want quality work for a great price – call Ron. Sounds cliche but it’s true.
Max K. – room addition
Ron is great guy, did a room addition at my house, satisfied with all the work
Jun K. Santa Monica
I recently had most of my condo remodeled. Kitchen, bathrooms, built-in bookshelves, carpet, and painting. Eden Builders came with the lowest bid, and so I hired them. The result was a beautiful and well-done remodel. The work was good and Ron was easy to contact. If I had questions or comments, I could email, text or call him and he would respond within the day. All of his guys were professional and friendly.
There were some existing plumbing problems that he ran into, however he and his plumber were able to work with the property and fix the problems. Ron was also able to get all the materials that I had selected (tiles, cabinets, granite countertops, carpet), and the materials are very good quality. I did have to supply my own fixtures, which was fine because that allowed me to get what I wanted at the best prices I could find. His guys did an excellent job installing all the fixtures. I am happy I hired him.

Luis is great, very knowledgeable in all areas of construction and he has a cool truck, too.
In each step of the job from laying the foundation to doing the stucco, from putting in the hardwood floors to the final paint job, guys were brought in who are experts in each phase of the project.
Every city inspection was passed and we are thrilled with the final outcome.Ron was always available and when we had questions or problems (and there will always be something on projects this big) Ron made sure that our concerns were addressed and that we were happy.
I highly recommend Eden builders and Ron and his crews. They know what they’re doing and they do it very well. You will love these guys.
Mike T. Studio City – We highly recommend Ron Littman, and Eden Builders Construction for your upcoming kitchen remodel. When we first purchased our house, our home project list was vast and long, and in that someday pile was that complete kitchen overhaul.
Well five years later, after countless magazine readings and home improvement shows, the idea turned into a plan, and the time came to select a general contractor to execute it.
After interviewing several highly reviewed contractors (both on Yelp and A*list), we chose Ron Littman based on his remodeling experience (our project involved removing a structural wall), his professionalism, and his easy-going demeanor. In addition, we chose him for all the things he was not, not pushy, not a high pressure salesman, and not a “cut me a check and I’ll be done in 4 weeks” kind of guy. Having now finished our project, I can say that who you meet and what he promises on the first day, is the same person you will be interacting with during the project and who will deliver as-promised in the end.
Here are a few more criteria that were important to us, in evaluating our contractor, and selecting someone to work in our home for the weeks and months to come.
1. Timeliness. Will the project start on time? (e.g. I just gave a deposit, will my contractor show up?) Will the project come in on schedule? Will the project ever be finished? Yes, yes and yes. Ron gave us a schedule at the beginning of the project, started on the day we scheduled, at the time we scheduled, and kept on schedule, and finished within our timeframe. Ron did a great job of delivering our project within its six to eight week timeframe.
2. Communication. No matter how much planning you do upfront, there are infinite possibilities and decisions to be made during the process. We couldn’t be home for all of it, and relied on being able to phone, email, text and picture message with Ron. He was always great about quickly acknowledging our communication and responding to any concerns/thoughts/issues that came up during the project.
3. Budget. It’s worth repeating, that Ron delivers a high quality product as-promised and on-budget. This is really where, I believe, your contractor’s experience comes in. He was able to work with our existing floors (and match them perfectly to new wood floors), demo the necessary walls to open up the space, but retain existing walls which kept us on budget. We were very pleased with the results.
What I think all the above issues boil down to is trust, and will you be able to trust your general contractor with your home. I hope this review helps you in choosing Ron, because if we had to do it all over again, I know we would.
John R. Woodland Hills – Ron came out the morning after I called and did a free estimate and I got a very good vibe from him immediately. Turns out my instincts were good. Eden finished the work in less time than they said and came cheaper than the estimate. Ron was super friendly and responsive. I really liked the fact that when I called the company he’s the one who picks up the phone. His guys were fantastic. Very polite and hard working and they did a meticulous job tenting and taping everything so there was no dust anywhere. I will absolutely use them again and I can’t recommend them enough.
Carrie M. Los AngelesBefore starting our remodel I interviewed five different contractors. I chose Eden Builders because Ron’s bid was reasonable and because he was the most professional. While other contractors were aggressive, know-it-all types who did not give me estimates in a timely manner, Ron was punctual, polite, and listened to what I wanted. He gave suggestions when necessary but was not pushy. He understood the look I was going for. He was available by phone all the time and made an effort to stop by the house frequently to monitor the work.When problems arose (and they always will), he listened and made every effort to fix what I didn’t like. Did the work take longer than anticipated? Yes.Did it cost more than anticipated? Yes. But not much. Bottoms line, would I consider hiring Eden Builders in the future? Yes.
Rachel C. Northridge – Ron is what every contractor should be. He is courteous, knowledgable, easy to communicate with, and reasonably priced. He returned every call and email, showed up when he said he would, and finished the job beautifully. His crew was efficient and easy to work with. He was so patient with all of my questions (and I had A LOT of questions for our small job). We are very much looking forward to hiring him again for a future project.
John O. Los Angeles – I had a complicated framing issue in a two story house, Ron and his engineer drew up plans and submitted them to the city for me. The process took less time then I expected, and no issues with inspectors! Very professional work and great customer service!
Andrea T. Hawthorne – I rent my 50+ year old house from my dad, so I was excited when he finally agreed that my bathroom was in need of remodeling. Although I was so happy to be getting a new bathroom, I was a little nervous because I didn’t want it to take forever and end up like one of those contractor horror stories. Eden Builders were very quick and professional. They had some great suggestions for making the new parts of the bathroom blend in with what was already there. They did everything in just a couple days, and stuck to their original timetable, which was a big plus for us. Living in the house during the remodel, I was surprised how little it disrupted our lives. One day I was able to meet Ron when I got home from work and he was very nice. Having your house torn up is a big and kind of scary decision but the process was painless and fast, and we are so happy with the results. Worth it!
Catrina D. Los Angeles – My parents have recently been remodeling their home, and entrusted me to finding them a great crew to help out. I found Eden through a friend, along with three other contractors, and after comparing prices/bids we ended up settling with Eden– and not regretting it! They remodeled two bathrooms and the kitchen, and it looks absolutely amazing. My parents couldn’t be happier, and now I’m really excited to head over and cook in that pretty new kitchen for Thanksgiving.
Martin M. Pasadena – Ron and his crew added a beautiful bathroom to our house. The work was done in a timely manner and within our strict budget. Thank you Eden Builders!
Catie d. Pasadena – Eden Builders added a master bedroom and bathroom to my house. I went with this company because the owner, Ron, was very reliable and responsible. He returned my phone calls quickly throughout the entire process. He worked with me for the changes I needed to make with experience and knowledge. Ron and his crew were great, so it turned out to be a very smooth process.
Emma E. Los Angeles – I had a few issues with the city regarding an addition that wasn’t permitted. Ron helped me bring everything up to code and get the addition approved and signed by the building and safety department. I also had a wonderful bathroom addition put up by these guys and it came out great!! They were very professional and knew what they were doing. I recommended them to a friend of mine and therefor will recommend them to anyone.
Eva P. Glendale,The project went according to plan, budget, inspections and time line. I have no complaints. Everything went smooth. A job well done. I love how everything turned out!
Lillian N. CANYON COUNTRY – I selected Eden Builders from The Christian Business Professional Directory. Ron and his crew were reliable, pleasant, neat, quiet, respected my property and did a great job replacing two sliding patio doors in my home. I would definitely use Eden Builders again.
Max T. Sherman Oaks – Ron is great guy, did a room addition at my house, satisfied with all the work.
Kat K. Burbank – Eden Builders did an excellent job remodeling our patio room and painting our house. Ron was very courteous throughout the course of the work, offered a fair price, and was able to accommodate some changes we made mid-project. He was very easy to work with and took time to make sure we were both satisfied and happy with the job done. I would hire this company again.
Jaimie s. Los Angeles – I would highly recommend this company for any work on your home. Having heard horror stories about contractors in L.A., I got 3 estimates for the work I needed done. When I met Ron I knew he was the one. He worked with me on the price and him and his crew did a great job on my house. They were all very courteous and professional and finished the job in a timely manner. I would use them again.
Jim C. Santa Monica – Ron came highly recommended so we decided to give him a try and we’re glad we did. Ron is a pleasure to work with. He and his crew build a great fence for us. He is very conscientious, prompt, reliable and his work is excellent. I would highly recommend Ron to anyone.
Dan L. – Valley Village – Eden Builders did a great job. They came on time, worked hard. I am very happy with the quality of work they did. I highly recommend their services to anybody looking to do any kind (small or big) remodeling job.
Mayo and Mary Apodaca – Montebello – We want to thank you ever so very much for the new Beautiful Bathroom. You did it so nice for us, we really appreciate al you have done for us. We recommend you very Highly. We are very happy with all your beautiful work. We thank you again.
Lisa Ulrika ~ Encino – Eden Builders is a great company to use for remodeling your house. They perform high quality work for very affordable prices. Ron has many years of experience in the construction business, which ensures a great final product. I am so pleased with my new kitchen! I got great ideas and help with deciding on material as well as layout. My kitchen is roomier and much better put together thanks to the advice I got from Ron. I highly recommend Eden Builders!
Carina Weston ~ Altadena – Thank you Eden Builders and to you Ron; For making a project that I thought would be a long nightmare, to a smooth and pleasant experience. Thank you for making my master bathroom addition – it is beautiful. I will see you guys at my next project. Thank you.
Michelle Farrell, Santa Monica – Professional, On Budget and On Time – I had heard horror stories from my friends about shady construction companies so I was very wary when getting quotes from different contractors. As soon as I met Ron my instincts told me that he was the right guy for the job. His guys were very professional and completed my room addition over my garage on time and within my budget. I love Eden Builders and always recommend them to my colleagues and friends.
Alice S, Los Angeles – Ron thank you for the wonderful work and the smooth process, the house addition looks great!
Joe Merritt, Malibu – You rock! Ron built me an entertainment room with a built in bar! The addition extends onto the back of my house into the yard. I added sliding french doors to open up to the yard. My buddies love hanging out at my house playing pool and basket ball and drinking beer. The only downside of my remodel is that I cannot get rid of my friends, my house is the place to be!
