Our Work


Kitchens are perhaps the most important room in a home. Investing in a modern design will ensure your renters or buyers fall in love with your property. We will help you get the most out of your investment.


A great bathroom is a key component for any property.  We love bright, airy spaces with a soft color pallet and elegant fixtures.  This type of clean, sophisticated design is sure to engage your target audience.


A great exterior establishes a strong first impression. Exterior maintence is crucial in making any property stand out from the crowd.

“EJC did a fantastic job on my kitchen and bath.  They were punctual, courteous, and kept the place clean.  Most importantly, they created a beautiful result that increased my property value 22%.”

“We can’t thank RJ enough for his incredible work getting our place sold this spring.  Before EJC, our property had been on the market for sometime. After hiring them, RJ made amazing recommendations that led to our property being sold within 3 days of relisting and for above asking!  He did  incredible work that made our unit look like something out of a magazine.”

Scott C.

“We had an amazing experience with EJC! Our entire interaction was warm and friendly which was completely unexpected from a contractor. We had a rental unit that needed a quick turnaround. EJC made terrific, budget friendly, suggestions that got our unit rented in the first showing!”
