Testimonials & Reviews

“We bought a forty year old beach home that needed to be updated for us to enjoy in the decades ahead. Smith Brothers Construction was our partner in making that dream come true.  

We highly recommend Smith Brothers for your home renovation projects. Jeff, Cheryl and their team were excellent to work with from project design to construction completion. Their subcontractors were highly skilled and dependable. Our project manager was on site every day and provided weekly email updates. Whenever an issue arose the Smith Brothers team had creative solutions and could be counted on to follow through. Most importantly their detailed knowledge and positive attitude kept us confident that our project would be completed in a timely manner and would be of the highest quality. We were more than satisfied on both fronts.

Our Smith Brother’s design team, Emily and Reggie, were fabulous and fun to work with. They listened to our design aesthetic and brought their expertise to layouts and structural features that enhanced both the exterior and interior of our home. Emily also guided us through all the design selections from drapery, flooring, tile, furniture, and decorative elements. She had great ideas and sources.

Our renovation included three bathroom remodels, window and door replacement for the entire home, hardscape and landscaping of front and back outdoor patios including a new spa tub and outdoor kitchen. We also updated all major mechanical systems including electrical and plumbing, HVAC system, and fireplace. We will enjoy our Smith Brothers beach home renovation with family & friends for years to come.”

“Jeff, Cheryl, and the rest of the team are top-notch.  They were on time, professional, and stayed with the budget for our home renovation.  We’ve already referred them multiple times to friends/neighbors and will continue to do so.  Aside from their excellent work, they’re just great warm people as well.”

– Dave & Joanna Fox

We were very pleased with our home building experience with Jeff and his team and we have no hesitation in recommending them. We chose Smith Brothers Construction initially because not only was the team highly recommended, but their design style matched what we were looking for in our dream home. The team was genuine, honest, and responsive. They kept us informed throughout the entire build process, and as the inevitable build issues arose, provided helpful suggestions and solutions. The team was energetic, friendly and helpful. Jeff hires credible, skilled subcontractors and we were pleased with the professional service and quality installations from each one of them. The quality of the finished product is everything we had hoped for and more.

“We were referred to Smith Brothers Construction by our architects and after considering other builders and touring many homes, we chose SBC to build our new home. We were completely impressed by Jeff Smith at our initial meeting and our first impressions turned out to be spot on. Jeff’s experience, connections, eye for detail, and intimate understanding of process and numbers were clear from the outset, but also obvious is that he sees his clients’ satisfaction as his ultimate goal. We were sure going in that Jeff Smith builds one hell of a house.

Jeff and his staff are the penultimate professionals, yet extremely down-to-earth and approachable. At the outset we were given Jeff’s direct line and told to call anytime “night or day,” but never once, during the entire course of construction, did we feel the need to. We were kept completely in the loop from the get-go and there was not one issue that wasn’t already addressed and resolved by Jeff and staff before we were even aware any (few that did) had arisen. From day one, Jeff constantly interfaced with our design and us, insuring that everyone was on the same page as the project progressed. He was budget-conscious from the beginning and was happy to show us alternative ideas when budget concerns arose.

SBC superintendent, Harold, was onsite full-time before the first shovel hit the dirt, keeping everything moving, insuring the safety of the workers, maintaining order for the neighbors, smooth communication with the city, and continuous engagement with us, the architects and designers and the subs. All subcontractors were professional, hardworking, polite and friendly. The job site was always clean and secure and our neighbors kept happy.

Ultimately we were delivered a gorgeous, state of the art, top quality home that we love. There’s not one thing that we would change about our home or the wonderful experience of having Smith Brothers Construction build it. A very happy (and unexpected) side benefit for us was that salt-of-the-earth Jeff Smith and his wonderful wife Cheryl have become good friends of ours. We couldn’t recommend Smith Brothers Construction more highly!”

“Smith Shade has been subcontracted to do several projects for Smith Brothers Construction over the last few years. It is always a pleasure. They have an office here in Solana Beach and in Oahu, HI. , which we have been lucky enough to work on projects over there for them. They are professional, courteous and have exceptional individuals working for them. We feel privileged to be able to put the window treatments in the beautiful homes they build. We are currently working on a project in Hawaii for them.”

“Mission Pools is a subcontractor that has worked with Jeff Smith and Smith Brothers Construction over the past 20 years. During this period we have been involved in remodels and new construction of custom homes. Projects have ranged from new homes on traditional lots to the special engineered homes on the side of a mountain. Our experience has always been excellent since we share common goals of building each project the best way possible and exceeding our owners’ expectation. There are several excellent custom home builders in our area and Smith Brothers Construction is one of them.”

“I highly recommend Smith Brothers Construction. The quality of their work and attention to detail was strong and they were able to realize a number of complex, customized features. Smith Brothers stood behind their work and I have since used them for additional remodeling projects. I have had the opportunity to visit other Smith Brother’s homes in various states of construction over the past decade and was equally impressed with their current portfolio.”

“I hired Smith Brothers Construction to help with a fairly major renovation of a second home – addition of over 3,000 sq. feet of additional indoor space plus major outdoor hardscape.. They were professional, knowledgeable,provided high quality work and most importantly, a very special group of people who provide their services with a personal touch because they truly care about their clients. This was especially important since we live overseas and relied on Smith Brothers to be diligent and raise issues with us in a timely manner. We are also not experienced in these renovations, didn’t hire an independent architect, so it was particularly helpful to be able to trust Jeff and Cheryl Smith as they guided us along our project on a wide range of issues from small to large. They are also very nice and helpful with after-project service and even on matters outside of the contract job. I truly felt that we were being looked after and taken care of like friends or family. Overall, the experience was very pleasant and I highly recommend Smith Brothers Construction.”

“We work closely with Smith Brothers Construction selling them custom products for their homes. Smith Brothers Construction is very professional to work with. They are courteous, conscientious, and pay attention to detail. They are known to stay in touch with their clients long after the home is completed.

“Excellent workmanship, on-time performance, and what service! Jeff still does maintenance and warranty work on our home even though he completed our project years ago. We have built homes in other parts of the country and Jeff is head and shoulders above the other builders we have used.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Smith Brothers Construction as the Interior Designer on a recently completed project in Kauai.
I was very impressed with all aspect of the building process. Smith Brothers Construction brought in the most highly skilled and professional team to work on this amazing project. Jeff and his superintendent Sean made sure the job progressed smoothly, going above and beyond the normal aspects of building a home. A lasting relationship was formed with the clients because of the Jeff and Cheryl Smith’s generosity and warmth.”

“As an elevator subcontractor for Smith Brothers Construction, I have had the fortunate experience of working with this top quality builder for many years. Not only do they provide outstanding workmanship and 5 star quality results, but their commitment to providing superior customer satisfaction continues way beyond the completion of the project.”
– Kathi Reynolds

“Smith Brothers did a complete house renovation, replacing flooring, cabinets, all appliances and fixtures–everything. They also expanded the existing foot print in three areas: a new master bath and walk in closets; a portico for the front entrance; and an attached guest house. The work was done on time, on schedule, and on budget. The quality of the work was outstanding and the final product was even more beautiful than we imagined.

Over the 10 years since the project’s completion, Smith Brothers has provided ongoing support for refinement projects, like the construction of a walk way through a wooded area behind the house and a myriad of smaller projects..

These are conscientious, hard working, good people.”

“I’m an interior designer who has worked with Smith Brothers Construction on a couple projects, and I have to say I was really impressed with the quality of their work, how responsive they are to their clients, and hands down the best project management team around. I would highly recommend them.”
– Emily Renze Design

We hired Smith Brothers Construction for a small remodel of our basement. They turned an unfinished space into a beautiful, soundproofed room. One of the greatest things about Smith Brothers is their ability to think through a problem and come up with a thoughtful solution. We really appreciated the fact that every day the job site was cleaned up, this was extremely important as we were living in the house during the remodel. We had previously used one of their competitors who did not do that.”

“Jeff Smith is my brother-in-law first and my designer-builder second. Nevertheless, I feel compelled to share our experience with Jeff as a professional, as well as my fabulous sister Cheryl. We asked Smith Brothers Construction to manage a property we now call home for about a year while we were still across the country. The thoroughness, consummate skill, and sheer dedication with which Jeff and Cheryl and crew took on a variety of major and minor issues that needed to be addressed in our older home was a beautiful thing to behold. My husband and I are so grateful to have the expertise of Smith Brothers behind us, and we’ve seen the owners in action with a number of clients and projects over the years. Between the two of them, they know everybody, can figure out how to solve any problem, and know how to create anything one’s heart desires with beauty and lasting quality. They have built an incredible network of talented and caring professionals who have been a joy to interact with as we have finally moved and continue to improve the property. I rely on Smith Brothers utterly, with full confidence that in partnership we will achieve great results. The sound, knowledgeable guidance that comes from Smith Brothers’ years of high-quality work is priceless to us; as they say, everything else is just construction. You won’t regret hiring these folks! And of course you have only the realization of your deepest architectural desires to gain.”
