    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"
