To Whom It May Concern:
My husband and I have just completed the total renovation of our house under the supervision and guidance of building contractor Mr. Clifford Geissler. Though one often hears horror stories when undertaking a project of this scope, I must say it was just the opposite for us.
From our very first meeting with Cliff, he listened carefully to the combined vision that we and our architect presented. His suggestions and questions at this juncture enabled a comprehensive bid on the project to emerge. Cliff's motto from the start was that there never was a problem he didn’t come across that couldn’t be resolved, and I must say that that resolution stood fast throughout the entire construction process. When we hit a few unexpected bumps, we all sat down and came up with solutions that were sound and cost effective.
Cliff was on site on a daily basis. His subcontractor's and their crews were hard working, professional and always polite, answering any questions we had. Before construction even began, Cliff went around the neighborhood presenting our neighbors with a letter introducing himself, and outlining for people, that if there were any concerns, i.e. noise, parking issues, etc. to contact him immediately. This approach went a long way throughout our neighborhood and everyone could not get over how clean the site was left at the end of each day and not an eye sore for them to be forced to look at.
Cliff presented us with a timeline of when things would occur and that schedule was on the money. There never was a day that passed when something wasn’t being worked on, moving the construction along to completion.
The quality of the materials Cliff utilized, married with the talent of his sub-contractors, enabled us to have a house that passed all inspections immediately, that was crafted beautifully and soundly, and that has given us pleasure every single day. The compliments from our neighbors, friends, and family, that the house is not only beautiful, but put together so well is a testament to Cliff's efforts from beginning to end.
It is my first hand opinion that to employ Cliff Geissler in the construction of one's house would be an outstanding choice both aesthetically and monetarily.

I just wanted to tell you that after seven years, I am still very happy with the work your company did on my house.
Our project was complex and involved nearly the entire the house: new electric, a large addition, new garages, new roof, foundation work.
Your team handled the project with care and it was completed in record time. Your attention to detail and quality is difficult to find in this day and age. Your commitment to me as a customer many years later is something that is rare among contractors.
I would not hesitate to have you build another home for us or even our children. Your knowledge, contacts and focus on budget and communication with the client makes the process run smoothly.
When it comes to picking contractors, often it is reputation that is most important. You certainly have a sterling one with us. Thanks. If you ever need a reference or a recommendation, we are happy to provide and excellent one.

We have been so pleased with the house you built for us … not to mention your expeditious response time.
When we first contracted with you in 2003, we were looking for an experienced developer. An individual who has built many quality homes, has a proven track record and an excellent reputation amongst your peers, realtors, architects and amongst the local population. We interviewed a few other developers but you and your crew seemed to have the knowledge and personality we were looking for.
We wanted to build a beautiful house here in Short Hills, for a fraction of the cost of new construction. The “in progress” blueprints were reviewed by you each step of the way to make sure we were on track, cutting corners where we could and not cutting corners in areas that would have a direct favorable impact on the value of our home.
Despite the struggle and inconveniences associated with building a new house, you helped to make it a fun experience.
We enjoyed the project so much we are ready to do it again with you!!

We feel very fortunate to own a Geissler Custom Home. In the deadline driven business of construction, where expediency often trumps craftsmanship, these homes stand out among others both in quality as well as attention to detail.
From the moment we crossed the threshold of the front entrance and closed the door behinds us - we knew this home was solid. The detailed wood trim moldings and elaborate coffered ceilings gave a feel of old world charm. The floor plan and overall layout – some of which had been altered from the original blueprints – maximized the living space and allowed a feeling of intimacy and comfort for our family as well as guests. Moreover, we were struck by the attention to detail on every matter, from the selection of quality hardware for the doors, to the placement of fireplaces for maximum viewing pleasure.
Beyond the actual construction, we all found Cliff and his staff to be very responsive and helpful. As in any new home, there was some “fine tuning” we wanted to make the home more perfect. Cliff, his staff, and even the vendors he recommended to us, were responsive, attentive, helpful, and creative. With that kind of support you can truly make your new home the “dream house” you always wanted.

The project you did for us is fantastic! You and your team made our renovation as worry and pain free as possible. Everyone we dealt with was professional, competent, talented, and a personal pleasure to work with.
Specifically, your craftsmanship and attention to detail are impeccable. We look forward to working with Geiss Builders again in the near future on the next phase of our renovations.
We just wanted to thank you for all the wonderful work you have done for us. We can’t believe that it’s almost five years since we have done our renovation. Everything looks just as beautiful as the day you finished.
It is so nice to know that you stand by your work and are just a phone call away if there are any warranty issues.
We are once again ready to do more improvements to our home and could not imagine using anyone else. Your attention to detail and fabulous design ideas will be very welcome.

Still loving the home you built for us in 2000! We stumbled onto your website and were completely amazed with your beautiful work. You've come a long way! Congratulations!
