"As first time home buyers....we were nervous. Another contractor seemed to come with the purchase but Michael Baum was found on the "List" and highly recommended. We called and he actually met with us on a Sunday afternoon, at the house. Thank you is all we say now, every day we wake up. What a difference an interview can make.
Michael is the 'let's do it'....'what you REALLY want to do'...contractor. He has a team of people that are artisans and know their job. The best part - he listens. Takes it all in and when you're ready, gives suggestions and explains how things can be done. Everything he promised to do and so much more. We had questions and he answered them all. The patience of a professor and composer of the craft.
He restored our first purchase, a 1912 craftsman bungalow. Now to find out that it's original owner was the son of a Bixby! That's why this house is so special. And when Michael's team of workers were finished - it was restored to it's grandeur. Not a day goes by and we don't say to each other....I can't believe this house. We really feel so lucky to have found Michael. And every day we wake smiling."

"I have nothing bad to say about this company. Ive never done construction on our own home and we needed someone to do a job that wouldnt cost us the bank, but still do a good job. Michael is very quick at responding everytime i email or call him and i was pleasantly surprised when his prject manager came by with the electrician to view the job before starting. I didnt get ripped off in price and they did the job quickly and beautifully...viewing all the details to make the space match the rest of our condo."

"I just needed some shelving put in where the water heater used to be in a kitchen closet in an old (1950's) house in Long Beach. My landlord didnt see it as a necessity, so Iwas on my own to schedule and pay for it. I'd gotten Michael Baum's biz card somewhere through some networking and when i looked at the website, was hesitant to call just to ask for 3 shelves to be installed.
I'm SO GLAD i did end up calling because it worked out perfectly! I am going to be letting my landlord know about him because she always seems to get the worst people to do installations and repairs around here. The people she picks are almost always creepy, smell bad and then leave my house/yard area a MESS and then i find out within a couple weeks of the job being done that it was NOT in fact done very well.
All in all, he was really friendly, really flexible and didnt treat me differently just because it was a small job. He kinda reminded my of a funny uncle i would have. That is a GREAT resource to have and now I have a reliable go-to guy for big or small projects. Most importantly, he did a really quality job putting up the shelves, which i am so grateful for!
For any landlords out there, i would highly recommend Baum Construction because he actually cleans up after himself, isn't creepy and his work will last so it will save you the time and money of having to re-do projects and/or having it ruin your property int he long run!"
