She is highly professional, very punctual, responsive to the need of the client, and has attention to detail. She has vision and is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.

Kyle H.

Very professional and detailed. Yu has plenty of experience in multiple areas of electrical, layout, lighting, interior design and so on. We were working on a condo remodeling project as out-of-state clients, but they have been providing lots of ideas and suggestions with close communication and patience all the time. I would definitely recommend and use them again in the future.

Yu has been a godsend for our first renovation/remodeling. She comes highly recommend through a friend that does house-flipping for a living. Yu listened intently to our project objectives and came up with thoroughly prepared implementation plans. Her skill and know-how in the project, as well as her contacts in the business made the renovation considerably less daunting. Yu plans hewn closely to our timeline and budget. I would recommender her without any reservation.
