5.0 Sergio M. Geneva, IL

Outstanding service, high sense of urgency and moved quickly on my project. Love their design capabilities, flexibility and careful attention to detail. Great project management tool -- shows you how funds are spent in very clear detail. No room for error or guessing. Very helpful in helping me get project back no budget due to unexpected situations that arose and completely out of our control. I highly recommend Design First -- what a great decision to hire them for my project!!

Response from Company:

Hi Theresa,Thank you so much for the feedback, it has been a pleasure working on your projects over the years.

5.0 Aila K. Brookfield, IL

This all got started right before the pandemic was upon us. The crews worked throughout, keeping social distancing and being super safe. I want to express how wonderful Luke, my project manager kept everything moving. Other shout outs go to Sergi the plumber and Stanley the carpenter. Don't get me wrong, ALL the guys were professional, courteous, and highly skilled. I would recommend or use Designfirst again at any time.

Response from Company:

Hi Aila,Thank you so much for the feedback! We hope you and your family enjoy your addition.

5.0 Steven B. Schaumburg, IL

We received multiple estimates, and decided to go with DesignFirst Builders for numerous reasons. Promptness, Showroom, the amount of different types of cabinets, counters, tiles, flooring and more. They also had numerous prices and quality from low to high depending on the cost of the addition to which build. From the start to finish of the project we dealt with multiple architects, designer's and project managers. Anytime we called or left a voice message we were contacted within the hour. Lastly I want to give a shout out to our project manager, ( Rick Divito ). Rick went above and beyond from the begining to the finish of our addition to make sure everything was perfect. If you want your project to be perfect I highly recommend using Designfirst Builders. They are the best !

Response from Company:

Hi Steven,We appreciate your kind words and we hope you and your family are enjoying the addition.

5.0 Steven&roberta B. Schaumburg, IL

They were all very professional, all tradesmen cleaned up every day when finished. All questions where answered in a way we were able to understand. Always on time and if there was a delay we were informed in a timely fashion.

Response from Company:

Hi Steve,Thank you for the kind words, we enjoyed creating your addition project!

5.0 Justyna M. Roselle, IL

Give Design First a call and do not think twice. They do everything from start to finish and made sure I did not have to worry about a thing. The best part is, I got to see a 3D colored rendering of what the potential project was like, anything and everything I wanted and needed, they made sure to include and were quick to make any changes to suit my desires! I will definitely hire them for my kitchen remodel this spring!

Response from Company:

Thank you so much for the kind words, Justyna! We strive to do the best for our clients.

HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.
To find more licensing information for your state, visit our Licensing Requirements page.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
