"We recently hired Brandy's firm to provide the installation of cabinets and woodwork at the Swope Ridge Geriatric Facility. The approximate contract for the installation package was $24,000. Brandy and her crew did an outstanding job coordinating and performing the installation. Our company had a slight manufacturing issue that Brandy and her people corrected in the field at a reasonable cost. We were more than pleased with the end result and the professionalism they showed. We would not hesitate to hire her company again when the need arises.

I want to give my unequivocal recommendation of International Builders Consultants, Inc. (IBC).
Our experience with IBC includes working on one of the single largest projects that we have worked on at BlueBoat International, LLC. The project being a 25-story luxury apartment building with some of the highest rents in the city.
We provided cabinets, counter tops and shower doors. IBC’s professionals performed the unloading and installation of the cabinets and the shower doors on the project for BlueBoat. Their unloading team was efficient and took extreme care of the material during the unloading and distribution process. This is an extremely important aspect of the business to us as the greatest risk of damage to our products comes during this process.
Their installation professionals did some of the best work we have seen. This is probably the most important part of our business, as the final look of our materials is tremendously impacted by the fit and finish performed by the installers. Just as importantly, the team’s ability to resolve issues on site is unparalleled, saving time and money.
As a result of our experience with IBC, we will continue to try and partner with them on as many future projects as we can. I highly recommend contracting or partnering with IBC. If you would like to speak to me directly about our experiences, please feel free to contact me directly at 314.503.0462.

It has been a pleasure working with your company in recent months. You, along with Jeff Pollock, have been extremely helpful and responsive to our requests.

I enjoy seeing you at functions like the Builders Association. You understand that you have to earn the business and don’t rely solely on certifications.
Kansas City has a host of contractors that are certified WBE or DBE providers who take advantage of the process and do not try to earn the business as a professional. Your ability to estimate the work, remain competitive, service the client and cash-flow your organization make you stand out in the pack. We appreciate all of those attributes when looking for a partner.
Please let me know if we can be of service to you and we look forward to finding future avenues where we can be successful once again.
