"I would like to take this opportunity to thank and commend Mariella and Randy for their great work in building my house in Port Moody.
The house was built with very good quality. To give some examples, after the framing was done, when the window company came and did the measurements, all window openings were exactly as indicated on the drawing. Our front yard was always kept tidy, each time I talked to my neighbour they were happy with the crew. The testing colour for the walls was off by a little, Mariella noticed this during an evening walk-through, and called the painter right away. Being an engineer myself, I know that it's those small details that gives good quality to any product.
We met Mariella and Randy after we went to one of their new houses and we liked what we saw. We then had a meeting with Mariella and Randy on potentially building a new home for us. We had no experience on building houses, and we had never talked to any other builder. It was in this meeting that we felt that they were honest and trustworthy people, so we decided to go ahead and proceed with designing and building the house. Our choice has been proven right. Both Mariella and Randy took our best interest to their hearts, and this was reflected throughout the project. There were many decisions to be made, but we were able to still focus on our own daily work knowing that our house was in good and capable hands.
Building the house has been an adventurous, overwhelming and daunting at the beginning, but also an enjoyable experience. I am glad and grateful that I had both Mariella and Randy taking care of this for us. Should the opportunity arise that we build our second home, I have no doubt that I would pick team Ellason again.

The house turned out great! We are so pleased with the final product and have had great feedback from our friends, neighbors, and family. We now have the house we’ve always wanted with lots of space for the six of us!
Mariella has been great to deal with and she worked extremely hard to keep the project within our budget and at the same time ensured the design was tasteful and functional. Randy kept the project moving forward without delays and made sure all of his trades did a quality job. They were very professional, innovative, and honest with us.
On February 17 you handed us the keys to a beautiful house that was built on-time and on-budget!

"Mariella and Randy,
What can we say…… We absolutely LOVE our new family home.
We would like to commend you on all the guidance you provided us through our first home build.
Your knowledge and experience made the process less overwhelming than it could have been. Your insight into all parts of the Design and Build stages was very helpful and saved us a lot of money and headaches.
Thank you very much!!

"Having been in our 30 year old home for the past ten years it was time for a remodel with primary focus on the kitchen but our plan also included minor changes to almost every room in the house. Randy & Mariella guided us through the process and made the experience of renovating a home we were living in at the time as painless as possible. It was clear from the start ESH brought all the required elements to the table. They understood our wishes and with all their experience were able to make them even better. We are thrilled with the end result and would not hesitate the recommend Randy and Mariella of Ellason Signature Homes to anyone thinking of building or renovating.
A big thank you to Randy and Mariella.

"Mariella has great design ideas, and is terrific at sourcing items at discounts. She has a real passion for design, and was open and receptive to new ideas. An experienced contractor who works hard to stick to deadlines, Randy has excellent trades working with him, and takes pride in the workmanship.
The end result is a beautiful home that we’re very happy with.

"We purchased our home from Randy and Mariella of Ellason Signature Homes in Port Moody BC. We have been very happy with our new home even though we were not involved with the design process. The quality of workmanship, attention to detail and beautiful finishings is evident and has been praised by friends and other contractors who have visited. Randy and Mariella have been extremely nice to work with and offered support and recommendations around finishing our basement as well as decorating the house. We have been very happy with our experience with the Ellason team to date and would not hesitate to use their service if ever we decided to build another home. Randy and Mariella are quality builders with integrity.

I wanted to update you that I attended the site at 820 Robinson Street this week. I am away on vacation next week, and won’t have time to process the security refund today but will do so upon my return to the office Feb 16.
Equally importantly, I wanted to congratulate you on a job well done. It is rare that I find completed sites with no deficiencies, and feel that this development was completed with an exceptional level of quality and attention to detail that you should be very proud of. An absolutely impressive job!
Hopefully we will get to see another great project completed by you in the City sometime in the near future!"

"Love the top notch service that you get with Ellason Design Centre! Mariella has lots of great ideas and contacts for all of our condo renovation needs! Would definitely recommend them to our friends."
"We are so pleased with how everything came together for us in our new home. Ellason Homes' Mariella helped me in designing the perfect chandelier and pendant lights for our dining room and kitchen. She also helped me pick the fireplace for our accent wall in our den. She has exquisite style and is very professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing help in interior decorating their house whether it is new or if you just want to freshen up your home. Five star service and very friendly. I wouldn't ask for a better designer. So thankful to have met you Mariella!"
"Choosing my contractor for my basement renovation was a no-brainer, Mariella and Randy's commitment to detail and work-manship is second to none not to mention being very supportive of my limited budget. The project turned out better than I could have imagined and I am so happy I decided on Ellason Signature Homes. I strongly recommend Ellason Signature Homes to anyone no matter how big or small their project is."
"We were fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Randy and Mariella twice now for our homebuilding needs. Our experience was excellent the first time and just got better the second time around! Randy and Mariella are genuine, good people operating with the highest level of integrity and professionalism. They are stellar and passionate about what they do and it truly shows in their work. They pour their heart and soul into any project they take on and the pride of quality shows in our home. We’ve had so many comments on the quality workmanship in our home, not to mention comments on the stunning end product! We absolutely LOVE our new home and wholeheartedly recommend Ellason Signature Homes to anyone building a dream home!"

"SIMPLY SUPER! We are so fortunate and proud to have put the ELLASON SIGNATURE of QUALITY, VALUE AND SERVICE on our new house, UNDERPROMISED AND OVERDELIVERED. We could never imagine such a superb job in assisting us from Conception to Completion in every step of the way having embraced all our concerns about design, permits, costs, procedures, job plans, service, etc., executing so flawlessly every wish within our budget constraints, searching the best deals on fixtures and completing a perfect work of art with great pride and achievement.
If anyone ever think of getting a beautiful solid custom built new home you only need to approach just ONE name, and that is, ELLASON SIGNATURE HOMES, and two of the best and the easiest people to work with, BRAVO, RANDY AND MARIELLA.

"Quality, integrity and talent. This sums up our experience with both Mariella and Randy during the building and interior design of our new home. Having a home built can leave one feeling ecstatic and grateful, while at the same time feeling apprehensive, and in our experience, any apprehension was short-lived as a result of Mariella and Randy’s dedication and expertise in both their respective fields of interior design and home building. They were both attentive and had accommodated our concerns with knowledgeable suggestions and experience, effectively leaving us with a home we are very pleased with in both design and quality."

"We have been very fortunate to have built our first home with Randy and Mariella. We absolutely love our new home! Being new to the home building process we were very naive about all the issues around building a home. We had come to the point where we had gone as far as we knew how to go (which was not very far!). After our initial meeting with Randy and Mariella, we just knew they were the ones for our project. They truly were a godsend after a not so great experience and a shaky start. After retaining Randy and Mariella’s services, they were able to get the project up and running. Randy took control of the interactions with the City and got things unstuck, and Mariella started on the many discussions needed to make a project like ours take-off. We have had the opportunity to work on other kinds of projects and what separates good from great projects is communication. Right from the beginning we were really impressed with the degree of communication from Ellason Signature Homes. From weekly designer meetings to the on-site updates, we always felt like we were in the loop. And unlike some projects, the level of communication didn’t change over time. Another benefit of the communications between us was the timeliness of addressing issues as they arose. Randy was on site daily and was able to point out any issues at an early stage, saving us time and money. With Randy being their daily, we were reassured that he had things under control and was moving the project along. He completed our project in an impressive time frame! As for the building process, Randy’s wealth of building knowledge and Mariella’s organization and design sense work really well together. They just don’t leave you all on your own to make the tough decisions. They are always there to provide opinions and or point you to those experts in the field who can assist. These are definite pluses where any delay is money wasted. Also what was appreciated were their tips and ability to pint us int he right direction to save us money! Finally, they are just genuinely good, honest people. Randy’s work ethic and integrity is second to none. There was never any concern about our project because we knew they were “on it”. They genuinely care about your satisfaction and will do what it takes. Quality, Integrity, Trust – truly works representative of Ellason Signature Homes. I guess the best question to ask when referencing a builder is, “Would you use this person again?” We absolutely would!"

"Ellason Signature Homes was exactly what we were looking for and needed to complete our very large home renovation project. We had been through the nightmare contractors, tired to do work ourselves and the result was things were a mess. In came Ellason Signature Homes. As soon as Randy and his team started work I knew we had finally found what we were looking for, quality and professionalism. Mariella was invaluable to me. As a mother of two running a household and holding down a full-time job I just didn’t have a lot of free time to go to stores and pick paint, tile, carpet etc. Mariella saved me so much time by listening to what my vision was and often brought samples and choices to me. She provided me with advice on decorating trends and ideas for all aspects of our home. The result is a home we absolutely love. I would recommend the Ellason Signature Home team without hesitation."
"We’ve been very happy with the Ellason Homes experience. We bought a new home already completed, and found that the selection of construction materials used and attention to detail was much higher than other homes we looked at. After 4 months in the house we continue to be pleased. Since our purchase, we’ve had excellent after-sales support from Randy and Mariella. Interestingly, we’ve also heard very postive comments from any outside contractors that have been in the house. We would happily recommend Ellason Homes to anyone looking for new home. You’ll appreciate the personal attention and the finished product. Michael & Wendy Reinerth"
"We really like our neighbourhood but our house needed a lot of help to make it “our home”. With the Ellason teams commitment to quality workmanship and customer satisfaction we decided to renovate and are so glad we did. Randy and Mariella’s attention to detail and willingness to work together and guide us through the entire process made our experience very rewarding. We are so happy and comfortable in our “new home” and would confidently recommend Ellason Signature Homes to anybody that truly wants to build their dreams! The Blairs"
