Janine C. was FANTASTIC! I requested an appointment with the company and Janine came out to my house a few days later with a lot of great ideas AND she was motivated to get the job done right. She took her time, designed with my two boys needs in mind, and after a few drafts, we came to a final proposal. She went over all the details, talked with me over e-mail/text/phone to ensure everything was perfect. She worked within my budget and always explained what all my options were, which I really appreciated. The closet will be installed in about 3 weeks after I signed the paperwork, which is AWESOME! Perfect timing to clean out and remove everything from the inside. THANK YOU JANINE! :) Laura B. — Yelp Review
