This review is long over due..R Brand, Inc and specially LAUREN ERICK with whom I dealt with exclusively renovated 2 town houses that I owned In Tinley Park Il, before I sold them in the Brookside Glen Development. The 1st house was at 7725 Richardson Lane was a house of horrors after the renters who rented the property for 5 years DESTROYED IT! It was necessary to send in a hazmat crew before any renovations could begin to give you an idea of what we had to work with. I know that without Lauren Erick these 2 renovations could HAVE NEVER BEEN COMPLETED. Lauren's leadership, experience, and expertise was an invaluable part of this process. Lauren was constantly driving the process forward while very patiently explaining to me where we were on the time line, and constantly making recommendations..where the budget was, what was necessary and more importantly what WAS NOT necessary. For example...putting hardwood from the 1st floor on the stairs to the 2nd floor..."just put in carpeting..it will flow better to the 2nd floor that is carpeted...thats 2000-4000 dollars you do not need to spend" I learned very quickly that Lauren with her experience in these matters is to be listened to ALWAYS. The 2nd house that was renovated was at 8661 Ballycastle which needed significantly less improvements..however it was tight schedule that she made work so that everything was done in time for the listing Now, I haven' t even gotten around to telling you the good part yet. I HAVE NEVER MET LAUREN ERICK. I have never set foot in these properties. I don't even live in the USA. I live in Europe... all of our discussions were over the phone and whatsapp. I did ALL of this from Europe. NOW this is a testament to Lauren Erick's communication skills, and her ability to frame in your mind how the project IS going to look..what works what does not work... I self admittedly have zero visualization skills so I relied solely on her visual interpretation . Thanks Again Lauren Erick and Thank you to your Colleagues at R BRAND Inc, for the incredible job that you folks did for me. And if you read this and talk to R Brand .. Tell them Greg sent you!!

This was a huge job and they did awesome!!!! I love my new house now and the process went as smooth as you could hope for a job of this size! These guys were great to work with and had some amazing teams they sent out. Glad it's done though! - Nicole M.
AR Brand Homes is top-notch. See the before and after pictures and decide for yourself! Mike and his crew are expert craftsman who listened and implemented this wonderful kitchen renovation. This required knocking out a wall, putting in a new electric panel, and much, much more. When decisions or clarification were needed, Mike took the initiative to make sure that we got what we were looking for. Mike also has an excellent eye for colors and helped us come to a wonderful choice of backsplash colors and patterns. We couldn't be happier and give our highest recommendation to R Brand Homes--for their trustworthy, dependable, and excellent service.
Dear R Brand Homes-Just a short note to commend you and your team on the fine work you all did in renovating our bathroom. It looks wonderful and we are very happy with the patience used and the workmanship displayed in our new bathroom. The professionalism exhibited went well beyond acceptable compared to other contractors we have had in our house for numerous jobs. This professionalism included the cleanliness shown after work was completed every day; it was very nice to see. You and your team were also very easy-going and demonstrated creative ideas as the job proceeded. The humor shown at times was also nice to witness. We will gladly recommend your company and your work to other potential customers. Thank you very much for a fine job and we will continue to keep you in mind for any future renovations we will be doing in our home. Best regards.-Jim & Debbie D.
R Brand Homes, Inc. was our company of choice to provide us with a kitchen/living room remodel. We were very pleased with the way we were treated by all who were involved. The management and workers all take pride in their work and do their utmost to provide the kind of service and work they would expect in their own homes. Honesty and integrity are important to us and we felt that immediately with R Brand, which is important when you have people in working in your home.Our remodel is beautiful and well-done. They had many ideas and validated and supported our choices as well. It was clearly a team effort. We couldn't be happier. We recommend R Brand Homes whenever we can and will use them for future projects. - Donna B.
R Brand did a commercial remodel (doctors office) for my business. They were responsible for the carpentry construction, drywall, tile flooring, drop ceiling and painting. They were very professional. I went to Europe on vacation during the remodel but left it in good hands. I was amazed when I got back to see how much progress had been made and what a great job they had done. They also clean up after themselves and left the place spotless. I would highly recommend using R Brand homes for your building/remodeling project. - Jim V.
Dave, Mike and the R Brand team were so wonderful to work with. They remodeled our bathrooms and laundry room. The end product is so beautiful and better than we dreamed! From beginning to end, they were easy to work with and helped guide us seamlessly through the process. The design services really helped us immensely. We were able to visualize what the finished rooms would look like. They turned out even better!
The team was kind and always careful to keep our living space clean. We would highly recommend them and would definitely use them again for our next remodel project! Thank you all for an amazing job! Our friends and family compliment regularly on our new spaces :)
Mike, Dave & Crew, When we started thinking about a master bathroom remodel, the task was daunting. We had well over 10 contractors come to give us their “knowledge” and I was ready to forget the whole thing. When I met Mike, I instantly felt at ease with the project and it became “achievable”. He provided a schedule, advice, knowledge, humor and a great crew. His team gave me the spa-like bathroom I always wanted, but never sure I could achieve. Thank you for bringing my “dream bathroom” from paper to reality. We highly recommend R Brand Homes to anyone looking to update a home, and for any future projects within our home. Thanks Again. - Howard & Michele R.
I can't believe what happened to me last week. I hired R Brand Homes to update my bathtub wall tile, install a new shower system and glass door. Then take my 28 year old 4 foot shower enlarge it to 5 feet relocating the plumbing installing a travertine seat, tiling walls and pouring a cement pan (floor) finishing the mosaic tile on the floor up the face of the seat and up a 45 degree corner to resemble a waterfall . All I have to say is WOW! When was the last time you payed for a service and was totally satisfied, (I can't remember) My best line to a contractor is just give me what I am paying for and I'll be happy. I'M HAPPY- Jim D.
The guys at R Brand Homes were great from start to finish. They were so helpful in guiding us in “what” we wanted to do as well and in laying it all out. Their pricing structure was great and it really assisted us in figuring out what we could and couldn’t do. We couldn’t recommend anyone more if you’re looking for someone to assist and guide you in your remodeling or addition project. - Jack and Amy Strong Tinley Park, ILDave, thanks for taking care of my Mom and doing this so quickly, (we installed a garage door opener which required restructuring the ceiling joists) I really appreciate it. Was kind of stuck on who could do this job and glad I threw it at you guys, you and your team always do good work. I trust you. Thanks and will continue to keep you guys in mind for future projects.Thanks again and take care. - Jim D.
We used R Brand homes for the second time! Our first project was basement floor tiles with heat underlay and they did such an awesome job we decided to use them again for our bathroom remodel and we couldn't be more pleased. Mike provides a detailed quote and schedule and sticks to that schedule... even unforeseen delays are managed and they will jump through hoops to remain on schedule. They are able to accommodate all design requests even when those requests seem daunting. Above all, Mike and everyone that works with him are totally trustworthy. You know you are getting the best with R Brand! - Joy D.
Thanks, Dave! R Brand Homes did a great job at Chris’ and we’re very pleased. I would be happy to provide references if ever needed. Thanks again. -Connie L.
Working with R Brand Homes was a very enjoyable experience. Always professional and pleasant and especially helpful with suggestions in the design of our new bathroom shower. Gave a date to bid the job, a date to start and a date to complete, and everything was completed on time. Exceeded our expectations and as a result, would highly recommend R Brand Homes for all your remodel jobs. -Larry & Phyllis M.
