Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I enjoy the work and we have compelted some challenging projects. We enjoy very good reviews from customers and mosat use us again and/or refer us to collegues who need work completed. I started in real estate in 1997 and also built my first home in 2000. I then worked as a vice president for a builder where we built 60-70 homes, bought and subdivided land and I handled management of some operations, wrote contracts of sale, processed all permits, tracked changes/options ordered, et cetera. I became licensed as a home builder in 2005 and licensed as a home improvement contractor in 2011. We have built or remodeled between 80-90 homes. I am licensed in Washington DC and also have a Maryland security license for installing surveillance and alarm systems..

We started in this industry in 2000.

We describe our business as Well established

What is most important when selecting a contractor to build or complete remodeling?

Review by in Washington, DC
Chris and his team did a superb job in renovating my row house. They are reliable, responsive and do quality work. They have the resources to tackle unexpected issues which surfaced during my renovation. Chris was very helpful and assisted in this project from the beginning; assessing the cost of renovation, which factored in my decision to purchase the row house, getting the necessary permits and inspections and guiding me through the renovation process. If I had another opportunity to do another renovation, I will turn to Chris.

Review by in Washington, DC
I have near-gut renovated two row houses in NW DC over three years including ambitious basement renovations and I wish I had met Chris Marshall at the beginning of the process with House #1 instead of in the middle of the process with House #2 because he was by far the most professional and responsive of any of the nearly two dozen contractors I probably interviewed in some shape or form over 2 years. His quotes were timely and the most detailed, and when I did the math it was actually cheaper to use Chris than to use contractors with much lower quotes because I invariably had to go back and rehire someone new to fix problems left by the cheap guy. The North Star's workmanship can't be better, the crews were professional and tidy, and the prices were actually right in the middle where they ought to be. (I was trying to go super cheap at first). I think the before/after pics for House #2 speak for themselves. I'm hoping to pull equity from this home to purchase House #3 in 2019 and I'm already envisioning using Chris for that project too. Professional, reliable, trustworthy, very knowledgeable, good value for the money. I'm sorry I didn't meet him sooner.

Review by in Bowie, MD
We recently hired Chris Marshall and the NSC, LLC Team to complete a TOTAL renovation of our dream home. Chris and his team FAR exceeded our expectations, the quality and workmanship of what they delivered speaks volumes about this company. Our home is absolutely gorgeous and the envy of the neighborhood. Chris helped us make major decisions and gently guided us around keeping our wants inline with our budget, which I am sure was a struggle at times. He was super timely, considerate, informative and just the OPPOSITE of everything we had ever heard related to hiring a contractor. He completed the entire renovation in 90 days; we moved in on 12/23 as promised giving my family the best Christmas present EVER!!!

Review by in North Beach, MD
When I first met Chris, I was interested in moving from a apartment to house. A friend showed me their house and the finished renovation of his house and it was beautiful. I soon got in touch with Chris to act as my realtor and then renovator! As a first time homebuyer it took me over a year to find that house. Some houses I had lost out on the bidding but I'm glad I found this beautiful home. This house required a total remodel - bathrooms were remodeled, closets were added to bedrooms, crawlspace was conditioned and encapsulated; new furnace installed with new central heating an air conditioning, new propane fireplace installed, tankless water heater installed, new carpeting and beautiful hardwood floors! All new windows were installed and brand new doors. Chris has suggested that i get the antique white paint for the main living quarters of the house. However, after I saw in my old apartment light I wasn't pleased with it. I went to meet Chris to make the selections to pick out the shower, and flooring for my laundry room and kitchen! (Its a lot of fun! Its like being on HGTV without the cameras!) Chris wanted to show a house that had the fixtures for the bathrooms and when we entered I noticed the beautiful paint and mentioned it to...he said it was the antique white! So take from this, just go with what he suggests! There was one surprise that came out of no where when the door rim board below the back door was found to be rotten because it was leaking. Unfortunately it wasn't noticed in the home inspection. The floor joists were repaired because of water intrusion and rot. After the remodel, I got numerous compliments on how beautiful the house looked and people inquired about who was my contractor....I was very happy to say its was Chris Marshall of North Star and for them to contact him. Its taken me a long time (over a year and half) to get my review written. Before I wrote mine I noticed a few people that Chris showed my house to after the renovation to show his work, have also had their projects completed and their reviews done! I'm happy to see that they were very please with the work done in my house that they stayed with Chris and his company to have their own beautiful home! Its wonderful that Chris and his crew can make people's dreams come true! Chris's crew is great to work with, too! Thank you for

Review by in Upper Marlboro, MD
We have a new construction home and wanted to have a wet bar constructed where the rough-in plumbing existed. I reached out to multiple vendors and also contacted The North Star Companies. We quickly got a response to have an in-home meeting to talk about the project and get a rough estimate. Working with Chris Marshall was a great experience, even if our small-ish project took place during the busy summer months when many people are completing home construction/renovation projects with much larger scopes. Chris was attentive, very helpful and kept his team on track to get the project completed. If there ever was an issue, even a minor one, Chris and his team quickly addressed it. We'll use his services again when we have any other home construction projects!

The North Star Company is wonderful. Chris was competent, knowledgeable, and responsive. He immediately put us at ease from from day one. He is very professional and straightforward as well. He explained things well and always answered all our questions truthfully. This is our first big project and we are really happy we hired this company. Would definitely rehire and would highly recommend them to family and friends alike.

Review by in Kensington, MD
I hired The North Star Companies to do a major renovation of an investment property in Fort Washington, MD. I found Chris Marshall to be very knowledgeable in advising me about building codes, local regulations, and in recommending styles and ideas that are contemporary. The company did excellent work, is reliable, and Chris and his crew were a pleasure to work with. He is always available for questions, was flexible, and found creative solutions when needed. I would highly recommend Chris for your remodeling needs.

Three months after Northstar completely renovating my townhouse in Lanham, I contacted Chris Marshall about replacing the windows. I mentioned some nicks had developed in the wall from moving furniture. Within a short time frame, he sent one of his crew Milton to my house to touch up the nicks. Milton fixed the problem areas and then did a through look around and fixed several other nicks that resulted since the renovation. I appreciated this excellent service all at no cost and to let you know that even once your project is complete Chris and his crew will be there.

We bought a foreclosed property that needed a lot of work like leaking plumbing, roof, basement mold, etc. We also needed enhancement work all over the house. Chris provided a very accurate cost estimate and completed the work on time and within budget. Chris and his team are very skilled, knowledgeable, professional and courteous. I would definitely recommend them.
