“My wife Julia and I approached V&M Development about our home renovation in Wicker Park.  We had used another contractor to complete the first half of the project and were unimpressed with the direction things were going.  From the first time we had Nathan and Martin walk through the project, we started to hear sensible cost-effective ideas and constructive feedback.  Their relentless commitment to proactive scheduling and documenting of all outstanding items put us at ease.  They were able to work with our budget to get the most bang for our buck on items such as counter selection, closet built-ins and other finishing options.  I wish we had me Martin and Nathan before we started.  Every single sub-contractor they brought to the project was excellent and reliable.  I have referred them to a number of friends and clients and I have heard nothing but great feedback.  We love our new home and are so thankful for the time and care they take in their craft.  If you are looking for true professionals who tell it to you straight and refuse mediocrity, then I cannot recommend them enough.”

“They were clearly the most professional and organized of all the contractors with which we spoke.  The work performed was terrific!  We would recommend V&M to anybody looking for honest and high-quality renovation work.”

“Everything is to perfection!  They went above and beyond expectations.  Martin and Nate were so responsive and professional that I have passed along their information to a close friend.”

I am an architect and Realtor and often need a general contractor to refer to my clients who is honest, detailed, competitive on price, and creative.  I have recommended Martin and Nathan on several projects and received rave reviews on all of them.  My clients’ responses were that V&M Development was on time, within budget, performed excellent craftsman-like work, and most importantly brought creativity to the project by offering ideas that the client and myself as an architect had not thought of.  It is invaluable to me as a designer to have someone who can bring a design concept to fruition.  I recommend them without reservation!

“Martin and Nathan are fantastic at what they do!  They are extremely reliable.  They are responsive and they are very knowledgeable.  I have worked personally with Martin and Nathan.  I recently referred them to someone who was extremely pleased with the work they performed.  I would have no hesitation referring Martin and Nathan in the future and I feel fortunate that I know them.”

“We had an excellent experience working with Martin to build our new single-family home in Lakeview.  He brings to bear strong technical knowledge in the construction space, along with a diligent approach to project management.  What we particularly valued was the way in which Martin responded to unforeseen issues.  In construction, even the best laid plans will run into complications.  What separates the good builders from the rest is their willingness and ability to adapt and resolve these issues when they arise.  With Martin, he often identified potential issues before we even noticed them, and we never doubted that everything would be addressed and finished the right way.”
