Reference Letter for Mr. Jim Romani, of Romani Construction

Jim is quite a guy. He built a custom home for my family in La Canada Flintridge, CA. 2008 to 2009.

Unlike many builders Jim was at the jobsite every day, always called me back and knows how to build fast with quality. He is a leader of men, able to organize the trades and coordinate the building sequence. His sub-contractors respect him and jump when asked to make a modification or a re-build.

He took our architect’s design and improved on it. He designed the foundation drainage system (which was baffling the architect and his geologist) and has been successfully tested these last five years. He enabled us to get the infinity pool and tennis court by moving the septic system which arose by his questioning the geology reports and his direct observations when pilings were dug. The geology was re-tested in unexplored area and the outcome was the relocation of the septic system. This made a dramatic difference to the property.

There were many interior and exterior design elements that make the house look better that Jim contributed and he also flagged design elements that were unnecessarily expensive and came up with better alternatives. He thinks on his feet, the inspectors love him and he was very good at dealing with the City of La Canada which is a difficult city in which to build.

And he is competitive. Being an Arcadia builder he came in with better numbers than the contractors that our architect had recommended. And we made it through the job!

For these reasons I am pleased to provide this recommendation.

Very truly yours,

Mr. D. Dickinson
