Mark Woodward

Woodward Masonry


 Mark Woodward was born in the Cotswold’s, perhaps the most idyllic, bucolic area in England which is characterized by local limestone used in most of the houses and town buildings.  Mark grew up as an apprentice stonemason and as an adult moved to Parkville, Missouri.  He has built mundane projects up through a project featured in Architectural Digest.  He has built numerous projects for me including a low, curving limestone wall with brick top along my front sidewall.  I’ve hired him to build flagstone sidewalks, new large stone retaining walls, retaining wall repairs and new brick/flagstone front porches.  He’s an exceptional contractor.

General Contractor


Beck Construction 

Ernie Beck


 Ernie is complete “5-Star”.  I’ve worked with Ernie, since 1996, a licensed contractor with a small crew who is “hands on” on all his jobs.  Capably handles residential and commercial projects and has numerous excellent references.  He is without a doubt the best framing and fine finish carpenter I’ve ever met.  Ernie has great instincts and as experienced as I am, he will often suggest alternative approaches to a task that are very well conceived and “right”.  Additionally, Ernie has the ability to handle all phases of a project which saves money versus bringing in subcontractors; he is fast yet careful, and his skills include plumbing, electrical, HVAC, sheet rock, all phases of carpentry and painting.  He’s an excellent problem solver.

Wright Construction

Matthew Wright


Matt took down an interior wall in my house, installed new trim/baseboards and installed a new sliding glass patio door for me. He does most of the work himself, is honest and gets things done in a timely matter. I will hire him again for future projects.


Resident, Brightwater

Bill and his late father were my parents’ plumbers since the mid-1970’s.  Bill currently works by himself delivering great service to his customers.  He has extensive residential and commercial experience.

Heating & Air Conditioning


Don Beal

Efficient Comfort Services


 Don and his grandson work out of his house in Shawnee, Kansas.  I have worked with Don since the late 1990’s and to date he’s installed nine or ten new residential HVAC systems in properties I own.  Moreover, he has installed new systems for ten or twelve of my friends — all cost-effective and without problems.  His follow-up service is personal and thorough.


Resident, Fairway, KS



Tom Rodina

Tom Rodina Service Company


 Tom has worked for an industrial client of mine and I am very pleased with his commercial services.  However, he will also handle residential projects.  He’s also a “hands-on” contractor with excellent skills and personal service.

Hardwood Floor Service


Nate DeGroff

NTG Hardwood Floors



Nate has both refinished existing floors for me and has installed all new oak flooring in three houses for me.  He started in the trade working for a large flooring company and a few years ago opened his own business.  He’s a perfectionist and I have been completely happy with all his jobs.  He has also worked for a number of my friends who are very happy with his work.


Resident, Fairway, KS


Mike’s Floors


Mike recently refinished my hardwood floors and did an excellent job. Best part were his prices – he only charges $2.25/sq ft. , which is an almost unbeatable price.


Resident, Brightwater




Painting Contractor


Jaime Villalobos

Jaime’s Painting


 Jaime worked for a friend in Town & Country Estates, Prairie Village.  I was surprised by his very low bid and the generally good quality work of his crew.
