Quality workmanship, quality products, and quality people.   These are but a few of the attributes displayed by Hollender House as they completely renovated our condo on Sheridan road.  Mike and Rob were able to design, fabricate and implement our combined plans into an open space floor plan leveraging the beautiful view of Lake Michigan from all living spaces.   We highly recommend Hollender House for your renovation.

"Extraordinary work!  I have made this comment to several friends recently about the work Rob and his team performed on my bathroom.  Mike provided great advice, but balanced their feedback to what I wanted and needed.  They completely transformed my bathroom in record time and at a very reasonable cost.  Their craftsmanship and expertise was invaluable.  I would recommend them to anyone".





We worked with Hollender House to remodel our kitchen and basement, add central air, add a new bathroom and remodel an existing bathroom. We also used the opportunity to make some other home improvements along the way.  Robert was extremely helpful in the design phase, creative with his suggestions and very accommodating during the construction process.Not withstanding  some unexpected surprises lurking behind our old house walls, the project was finished in a timely manner and there were no cost overruns.  Robert and his team hired reliable subcontractors and was always available by phone (even on holidays). We are very pleased with the final product!

The work you did in that unit was, by far, the most impressive I’ve seen yet – excellent job!

Mike and Rob were fantastic partners to me in my remodel!  They both helped me along every day, solving every crisis and challenging me to really think about the choices I was making. No problems was too big or small for them to handle, at any hour of the day.  Taking this project on by myself was a frightening prospect for me, but the second I hired Hollender House, I realized I wasnt alone

I contacted Hollender House because we were looking for a unique dry bar in our Chicago condo. I had quotes and designs from a couple other companies, but they were very generic and I hoped that a smaller company would bring a different perspective. Hollender House came to our home promptly and were full of creative ideas for a truly one-of-a-kind piece of furniture that would really make our home stand out. We had some issues with lighting and they went above and beyond to make sure the bar was perfect. I would definitely recommend their work and the extensive experience that they bring to each project.

In late January, 2009, I had a pipe burst in my condo unit and flood and destoy the entire floor.  We had to remove all flooring, remove all cabinets and counters in the kitchen and baths and dry out the unit to make sure no mold formed.  Hollender House came in and made a very fair and thorough estimate.


Hollender House did a great job overall. The unit looked great when they were finished.  They finished the project on time and very close to budget. I was also in the proces of selling my condo, so Hollender House worked with my buyer as well to make sure she was satisfied. What impressed me more than anything, though, was how responsive Mike Valente and Rob Hollender were.  Mike almost always answered his phone when I called and if he did not, I got a call back within a few minutes.  Hollender House did a great job on this project. I will be recommending them to others and using them again on projects in the future.

The team of craftsmen was highly dependable. trustworthy, hardworking and exacting. They were well-connected to other needed resources and always explained the reasons for suggested changes in plans. They provided and explained thoughtful ideas, although ultimately, our wishes were always prioritized! I would seek their expertise for future projects!

We recently had our bathroom in our condo unit completely remodeled by Hollender House and are thrilled with the results!  They listened to our requests, yet made great suggestions along the way that enhanced the project and that we very much appreciated.   

The building engineer and manager were happy as well commenting that they Mike, Rob and their crew were very easy to work with doing everything that was asked of them in order to comply with the condo association rules. 


We would highly recommend Hollender House and hope that we have the opportunity to work with them on another project!

This summer, I hired Hollender House for several services such as painting, granite installation, and other rehabilitation projects. My experience truly exceeded my expectations. My contact was easy to work with and their contractors provided quality services in a timely manner, as promised. I have already referred them to a few friends and would recommend their services to anyone who wants to deal with a professional general contractor.

Hollender House completely renovated my two bed, two bath condo in downtown Chicago. They were very helpful with the design stage we entirely remodeled the kitchen and removed an interior wall. I was very impressed with their craftsmanship and ability to accommodate custom requests for non-standard improvements throughout the apartment. We re-did the floors, the ceilings, lighting, cabinets, painted, replaced appliances, and re-wired much of the apartment.

Hollender House was very easy to work with from a business perspective. They were straightforward during the negotiation stage and fully executed our agreement without cost overruns. Hollender House properly handled all necessary paperwork and worked with the buildings management company to secure the necessary permissions and establish that the work conforms to all applicable regulations.

In the spring of 08’ Hollender House completely remodeled my condo.  They gutted everything, the bathroom, the kitchen the living room and the bedroom. Not only did Rob design the entire space, but he let me play an active role in the decision making process. He was always available to answer questions and to explain exactly what was going on.  Now my home looks beautiful and I consistently get complements on it.

Hollender House did a complete remodel of our Chicago condo in the summer and fall of 2007.  I found Robert to be creative in his recommendations and open to my suggestions and needs.  We love our new place and receive continuous compliments on it.


After completion, we had a couple of issues come up re: our new appliances.  Robert was great about immediately contacting the supplier and getting the problem rectified.  I was very impressed with his willingness to help us after his crews had finished.

Small job repairing and painting our master bath for the Hollender Team. Nevertheless Mike and the crew were professional, fair priced, very clean (post work too!) and quickly got us back in operation in no time.  Definitely a reliable resource.
