"Sixth Sense" About Colors

Every day I walk into my “new home” I can’t believe what a difference a little color makes!  Actually, it’s incredible! …Your work is truly exceptional.  A friend referred me to you so I was familiar with your work before I hired you…but the quality of work I received was extraordinary. Your “sixth sense” in helping me pick my colors was amazing.  You patiently listened to what I wanted to do with my home and you suggested particular colors that helped me achieve my goals.  You are an artist. Your patience is probably your greatest virtue.  You allowed me a moment of hesitation after painting my “all white” house with 4 different colors.  My initial feelings of ‘what have I done” have been quickly replaced with “this is the greatest thing I have ever done!” You’ve obviously been through this many times.  (Who knew Painters had to be part therapists?)

Met High Standards

In my business as a real estate broker I work with a lot of trades people and I admit I have exceedingly high standards when I recommend anyone to my clients. You are tops in my book!  Your professionalism in each stage of the very difficult job of painting my huge old house was outstanding!  Your advice throughout with the color scheme probably saved the situation. I always felt confident because you came every day to the job, supervising your wonderful crew and seeing to the smallest details. And speaking of your crew, I was so impressed.  They were, to a person, polite, knowledgeable, and very eager to please.  They came on time – or early, and never left a mess.

Both my husband and I have employed numerous consultants, contractors and vendors during our business careers and are always delighted when we have the privilege of working with an exceptional organization. Otis Merry Painting is one of the finest and most professional contractors with whom we have had the pleasure of working. Your thoroughness and attention to detail began with your original estimate and bid to prepare and repaint our 3 level “canyon-hugging” home in Mission Hills. We are accustomed to receiving such professional and competitive bids from large commercial firms; we were very impressed to receive both professionalism and great personal attention from Otis Merry Painting. You and your crew’s competence , thoroughness and over-all “great work for a fair price” was obvious throughout the job and continued right through to completion.  We enjoyed very much the opportunity to work with you and your fine crew and would be please to be included on your list of very satisfied customers.

Attention to Detail

What a joy it was to return from Lake Tahoe to our newly painted home!  Just having been away a few weeks gave us a fresh perspective on your work. The house looks so very nice.  The work your crew spent on sanding, sealing, patching, replacing, etc. made such a world of difference.  You are to be commended for your fine attention to detail. I can say with all honesty that this Merry Painting job is the best ever on (address omitted).  We are very pleased.  Not only were you present daily to manage your crew but you were also present to your clients.  You have trained your painters well.  They are polite, neat and very professional. They take obvious pride in their work as the finished house shows!  We also appreciate how you showed concern for our shrubs and planting areas. We’ll be happy to recommend you anytime.  Thanks, also, for washing all my outside windows – that was special!
