We recently purchased a condo back “home” in Chicago and Arete was recommended by the building association. We are located out of state and wanted someone that we could trust that would be able to work on our condo without our constant supervision. We found the partner in Arete. From the first day that we met, they worked to understand what we were thinking and offered ideas that we didn’t think of. We ended up completely renovating 2 bathrooms, flooring, painting, some major electrical and some minor “fix-ups”. They did a great job explaining the different options to us and once we got thru the approvals, they ran with everything from coordinating with the building for access, arranging other contractors, etc. When we ran into some “issues”, they called and explained what was happening then worked with us to work around them to our satisfaction. Given we were in Omaha while this renovation was going on, we had to find someone that we could trust and we found that in the folks at Arete. We are very happy with the work they did and every happier with the communication flow between us. We will be hiring them again when we decide to make more renovations in the kitchen area! Thank you Arete for your quality work and your partnership.
