What Our Clients Say…
September 14, 2016
To Whom It May Concern:
I write this letter in recommendation of Jeff Martin as a general contractor. I had the pleasure of working and referring Jeff on a variety of projects since 2012 in my capacity as a Realtor for Sereno Group in Los Gatos.
I can recommend him highly and without reservation. After completing many renovations for my clients, Jeff was a consummate professional. He chose and managed the sub-contractors well. Each and every job was done with care and precision. In addition, he is extremely clean and tidy in the workplace.
As a Realtor, I have to be very careful about my recommendations, and Jeff has time and time again exceeded expectations of both my clients and myself.

Jeff Martin has completed several jobs for us. He did a major remodel of our kitchen, remodeled a small bathroom, put in a backyard deck, installed an attic fan, and redid our front yard as a drought resistant space. All projects have been completed within schedule; he keeps the work sites cleaned up during the work; and either does the job himself, or supervises rigorously. He does a good job of staying in budget, finds materials at the best price but still with excellent quality. We have been more than satisfied with all the projects and are happy to give recommendations to others.
Jeff Martin and his team (JMM Construction) provide quality work, outstanding service, and a reasonable price. He does exactly what he says he will do and he has never nickel-and-dimed me on incidental charges like I’ve heard other contractors do. He provides a detailed quote up front and then sticks to it throughout the project. While many of my friends have experienced nothing but horror stories with their contractors, I have had the good fortune to have had only positive experiences with Jeff (or, “Mr. Jeff” as my kids have affectionately come to call him). So it is without hesitation that I enthusiastically recommend Jeff for any home improvement project – small, medium, or large.
I have worked with Jeff on 5 separate projects over the last 4 years since I bought a mostly untouched 1958 Eichler in Sunnyvale back in 2012. Together, Jeff and I have successfully and beautifully transformed nearly every aspect of my home despite the many difficulties and challenges that come with slab foundation / post-and-beam construction. Here is a quick look at what we have done:
- Gut and full remodel of kitchen including upgrading the electrical and gas throughout the home
- Gut and full remodel of guest house, including installing a new bathroom
- Gut and full remodel of master bathroom / closet / office, including several major footprint and plumbing changes
- Gut and full remodel of kids bathroom and kids closets
- Replace water heaters and install water filters
As you can see, this included just about every variety of home remodel work (electrical, concrete, internal plumbing, external plumbing, skylight installation, tile, cabinet, siding, painting, foundation, and on and on.)
One final point I want to address is Jeff’s commitment to his work. It is not surprising that I have had reason to call Jeff a time or two several months after project completion to address some lingering issue (we’ve simply done too much to this house for that not to happen); but it is surprising, or at a minimum very satisfying, that Jeff has always been there for me and has done whatever it takes to make it right. In this sense, I have come to view Jeff more as a “partner in home ownership” of sorts, rather than just a pay-to-hire contractor.
And of course, I’d be happy to further expound upon my experience with Jeff as needed.
