I just wanted to say how pleased I am with StarCon and the remodel they did on our home in Santa Barbara.  It was not a convenient location, but Steve took on our job and I was very satisfied with the experience from start to finish.

The workers were there when they were supposed to be, and Steve and Gary did a great job in keeping me informed about schedules and progress.  As with any remodel project, there were a few issues that came up, but Steve went above and beyond to make sure things were done the right way, which I really appreciate.  

I will be looking to StarCon for any future projects, and would highly recommend them for your general contracting needs.

Steve Margolis with StarCon General Contractors, just finished a complete remodel for me in Malibu. Steve Margolis is the only contractor (and I’ve completed over twenty five projects over  a few decades with various other contractors) that actually uses this thing called a brain.  He genuinely cares and will always do the right thing by putting his customer before the almighty dollar!  It is so rare to find a honest contractor and Steve is!  Steve’s design sense is second to none and his execution is flawless.

PS – Steve’s foreman, Gary Murphy, knows every trade, and when it comes to thinking outside the box, Gary is the master!

StarCon has built and renovated several homes that I have personally seen in the Malibu area. Two of their most recent ground-up projects, one in the Colony and one on Malibu Road, are stunning. The attention to detail and the fit and finish are top quality. Being a realtor in Malibu for over 30 years, I’ve seen the majority of homes here, and these two are among the most beautiful.

Over the years, I have referred StarCon and the president, Steve Margolis, many times. Each time I do so, I receive positive feedback about his performance and the ease of which he makes people feel during the construction process. I have never received any negative feedback out him or his company.

I highly recommend StarCon for any building needs. From new homes, to small projects, he always seems to get it right and keep his clients happy.

Steve Margolis and his right hand man, Gary Murphy, are the best.  They renovated our home in Malibu.  It started as a relatively straightforward project, but turned much more complicated as we added renovations and as we discovered problems that the pre-purchase inspection failed to uncover.  Rather than take advantage of the situation, Steve and Gary went out of their way to keep costs under control.  The quality of the work was first rate.  Just as importantly, they are both genuinely nice, decent, hard working men.  And their subcontractors invariably were as well.  What more could one want from a GC?  I recommend them without qualification.

Steve Margolis and StarCon rebuilt and expanded our beach house in Ventura entirely to our specifications, working with us through a complicated permit process but sticking with us throughout the project and seeing it to completion. The result exceeded our expectations in every way.

The project was not without its twists and turns and challenges (unbeknownst to us, the city required a lengthy historical review), but Steve continuously kept us updated with the progress and made valuable suggestions. His team, led by Project Manager Gary Murphy, was composed of long-experienced and highly skilled professionals, dedicated to first-rate craftsmanship. And the subcontractors that Steve brought in had long histories working with him and were all top notch.

Steve was gracious and patient in working within our budget and striving to meet our deadline.

We are regularly complimented by people passing by our house, and most neighbors would likely agree with us that ours is one of the most attractive houses on the street.

We are very grateful to have found StarCon and for making our dream of a lovely beach house come true.

Dear Steve,

Just a short note of thanks to express my sincere appreciation for the expertise, skills, advise and insight you brought to my new business, Party On! For Less.

In the short span of eight weeks, StarCon was able to build, from the ground up, an entirely new retail store of over 5,000 square feet, where only a shell had been before. As the work progressed, your knowledge and professionalism helped structure and support all of the decisions I had to make as we worked together on this project.

Beyond that, your consistent communication, from both you and Gary, helped me feel at ease with all stages of construction. Further, your willingness to work with the Landlord, when necessary, greatly streamlined the process.

The quality of work provided by Starcon meant that every inspection was passed on time, the first time, and ensured the project ran exactly on schedule all the way to opening day.

I can, without hesitation, recommend StarCon to any business owner or homeowner, with plans big or small.

Thanks again.

Dear Steve,

Well, Steve had a wonderful Thanksgiving, cooking up a storm in our new kitchen!
We just love it!

Remodeling can be quite a strain, but you and your crew helped make the process a bit easier. They were great at their jobs, consummate professionals, always cleaned up nicely after themselves, and were so pleasant to have around. Even my dogs liked them!

Were there problems? Sure, aren’t there always? But when we called, you answered, and problems were fixed. (I know we’re pretty easy to work with, but if everyone just goes into a remodeling job with the right attitude, life is so much easier!)

Anyway, we are thrilled with the final product and are ready to move on …. To the rest of the house!!

So have a wonderful holiday, and expect to hear from us after the new year. We’re ready to tackle the family room, patio and bathroom.
