Your website is so well done and describes your process really well. What you explain on your site actually happens and, when I refer you, I’ll refer people to it.
I was recently leafing through a decorating magazine and read a story indicating that delays and nightmares are part of the remodeling process and to expect them. Thankfully, that didn’t happen at all with our project.
Well done and thank you again.
I recently needed to completely remodel a kitchen and we brought Jan in to assist. We are so glad we did. Jan advised us and completely managed the project for us.
I couldn’t believe the amount of time Jan spent personally following up on details related to our kitchen. She helped us to plan the new kitchen, advised on selection of options and ways to cut costs, and completely managed and took responsibility for the entire process. I never realized how many details and issues there are relating to new kitchens – there are a LOT. In particular, I never realized that there were so many details regarding putting in a countertop.
I was so glad Jan was there to guide us.
On a personal note, I found Jan to be responsive to my constant questions, to be diligent in following up on the smallest details, to adhere to our wishes and to respect the sanctity of our home. Her support and dedication were invaluable in helping us create our dream kitchen.
We worked with Jan Goldman and found her to be professional, innovative and exceptionally talented at both design and solving problems in ingenious ways. Her flexibility and patience was unequaled when some structural issues arose and my choices changed. She seamlessly created and offered new ideas, which her construction team were able to implement immediately.
Jan works with only the best craftsmen, who were also impressive, professional and punctual at all times. She has also forged relationships with independent suppliers, which gave us an exceptional range of materials to choose from.
Although I was certain of my countertop choice, her expertise and awareness of new products in the market place allowed us to visit a granite supplier (and, yes, she goes with you) and choose a new type of finish that I would not have found without her help.
Jan met with us countless times, took all of our requirements into consideration and really listened to the way the whole family utilized the space before producing a plethora of detailed architectural plans. She was also mindful of our budget, always suggesting a variety of ways to ‘get the look’ and maintain high quality, while finding the best prices for us.
I cannot speak highly enough about her calm, easy going nature, sense of humor, great communication skills and, of course, experience in the field. She also is knowledgeable, has the ability to conceptualize and create the look you want without explaining every detail to her. This is her gift.
If you are confused as who to work with on your project, look no further. Whether you know exactly how you’d like your new kitchen to look or whether you need help with basic design, product or appliance selection, Kitchen Elements is the company I would unreservedly recommend. We felt safe in Jan’s trustworthy, experienced and, above all, talented hands.
It has been a joy to work with her as she has created a gem of a kitchen which suits the whole family and has literally changed the ‘feel’ of the entire home.
Thank you Kitchen Elements!
From the beginning, Jan asked all the right questions, and quickly understood our requirements, priorities, likes, dislikes, and just plain quirks. In fact, one of the traits we appreciated most in Jan was her ability to listen, and then share her ideas with us. She was very thorough, careful, and worked amicably with our contractor. The highest accolade we can give Jan is this: we got the BEST when we became a team, and it was truly a privilege to work with someone of her caliber and professional ethics. Thanks, Jan.
Friends of ours had their kitchen renovated by Jan Goldman, and it was beautiful! They had a wonderful experience working with Jan. Luckily we took their advice and decided to work with Jan. Her knowledge of kitchen design, professional manner, and excellent taste made this experience enjoyable. Jan’s direct involvement with the contractors, her availability and follow through were integral for making the renovation flow smoothly. Additionally, we always knew we could trust her advice and rely on her expertise.
Two years later we still admire our beautiful and highly functional new kitchen, as do visitors to our home. We couldn’t have done this project without Jan’s help.
Jan’s idea of service-with-a-smile meant guiding us through uncharted territory. She wants her clients to know that she takes the worry out of making “the right choices.” She is respectful of her clients – realizing that this is their home, their space, their project – not trying to force her own choices and preferences on her clients.
Her choices in the folks she brought in to do the work was spot-on! They were all reliable, conscientious professionals! In short, Jan Goldman’s Kitchen Elements was a pleasure work with, and we couldn’t be more pleased with our new kitchen.
