To Whom it May Concern:

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Jim Romani, General Contractor in Arcadia, California who built our most recent residence.

This was the third residence we have built, and was by far the most complicated and expensive home we have ever undertaken, over 5,000 square feet and costing more than $1.5 million exclusive of property.

Because of these reasons we searched long and hard for a reputable contractor. Mr. Romani was brought to our attention by the loan department of Citizens Business Bank where I served as a director for some 25 years, because of his consistent record of customer satisfaction, and his performance record with sub-contractors.

Our home was built in an exemplary manner, and everyone who sees it remarks about the quality of the construction. The home was completed on time and within tolerable limits of budget in spite of the complexity of the project. Of greater importance to me was the fact that our architect for all practical purposes abandoned us after the project was started, and Mr. Romani, undeterred, assumed responsibility to see the construction through to completion. For the record it should be made known that four well-known contractors in our general area refused to bid on the home after reviewing plans and specifications, and price was not a mitigating factor.

These are but a few of the reasons I could recommend Jim Romani to anyone who has a desire to build a home of high quality and to engage a builder who stands behind his work regardless of unanticipated events during and after construction is completed.

P.S. The Claremont Architectural Committee recently selected our home as the “Home of the Year.”

Sincerely, Charles Magistro
