After an extensive interviewing process, we selected ProBilt Contractors to build our residence in the Santa Ysabel Ranch development in Templeton. Reggie Brard and his group of associates and subcontractors did an outstanding job in planning, coordinating, and building our home. Reggie’s attention to detail, honesty, hard work, and professionalism, resulted in us moving into our home ahead of schedule and on budget. As Chairman of the Santa Ysabel Ranch Architectural Review committee, I have dealt with many builders and subcontractors. In my opinion, Reggie Brard and his team at ProBilt belong to a very small and select group of excellent contractors that build homes on the Central Coast. If you still have an excellent relationship with your builder years after you’ve moved into your new home, as we do, then you selected the right builder. We highly recommend Reggie and ProBuilt and would, without hesitation, use them again to build for us in the future.

Our experience with Reggie Brard and ProBilt was absolutely outstanding. With past projects with other builders I remember dreading my visits to the site or calls to them regarding progress, changes, etc. because I knew I would face disappointment or frustration in some way or other. With ProBilt my recent home building experience was completely the opposite! I looked for excuses to stop by or call Reggie because of his pleasant attitude, cheerful honesty, refreshing humility and just overall demeanor. Each worker I encountered on the job site whether his employee or sub, contributed to making a visit to the site a joy. They even made extra effort to keep the site cleaned up so no trash would blow around the property. The project was done on time, and within budget.......never before my experience and practically unheard of in the industry. This being my third custom home, when people ask me if I would ever build another home, my reply is always...'Only if Reggie Brard could do it.'

We started looking for a contractor in the yellow pages and on the internet but, as I contacted people in the area, one name kept surfacing, Reginald Brard (ProBilt). Everyone seemed to know “Reggie” and we heard nothing but positive recommendations. We met with Reggie and it was clear that he was quite knowledgeable and experienced, and was the right guy for our project. We instantly had complete confidence in his judgment, expertise, values and integrity, and we agreed on a plan that would include the fact that we had to be out of town for about a month during a critical phase of the construction. We felt very confident in leaving the house and all the decisions in his hands during that time. He had a reliable skilled crew and a “can do” attitude so that no request was too complicated or too big for him to tackle, including installing my pet project 500 lb. single sheet glass picture window. Our experience with Reggie extended over six months during which time we grew to appreciate him more and more, and in the end we became good friends. There were no negative aspects or problems during the project and after completion the results were better than we ever could have wished for. We whole-heartedly recommend ProBuilt without reservation to anyone looking for a contractor for any construction project, big or small.

I recommend unhesitatingly Mr. Reggie Brard to build and/or remodel a house residence. He is a man of integrity, who completed what was agreed, on budget, with the high quality and as scheduled. A small house in SLO has been in my family since 1953. My career involved developing, scoping, negotiating, managing and evaluating hundreds of contracts which underpinned million dollar projects throughout the world. A detailed remodel design was prepared by a first class architect; after several reviews, the city government permitted the project; and, I carried out a two-step competitive process, considering 11 firms. Pro-Bilt was clearly the most responsible, responsive, and reasonable bidder. Mr. Brard mobilized in August 2011 and secured final approval inspection in March 2012. He expertly managed collaborative, successful relationships with his sub-contractors, the architect, neighbors, and city reviewers and inspectors. In dealing with normal, unforseen issues that arise during construction around an older structure, he was forthright, professional and fair. In one instance, I overpaid - the excess was identified by Pro-Bilt and promptly returned to me. Several times we agreed on additions / deletions to the contracted work, these were negotiated and completed without a single change order to the contract. Never did I feel taken advantage of - a fundamental security in the contracting business. Mr. Brard was central to my successful project. I genuinely endorse his superior workmanship, honesty and interpersonal skills. Should you require additional information and/or wish to visit my residence to review his work, please contact Mr. Brard. I would be pleased to discuss my project and confirm Mr. Brard's outstanding character and expertise.
