Our experience with Retro Experts went very smoothly. The tenants were very informed by Hilda Cabrera about the process and their involvement. An added plus was that she is bilingual. Also, the tenants knew who to call if there were any questions. Understand that there can be delays and the City of LA does take their time to perform inspections; which delays the project. We did obtain several other bids but Retro Experts was the best. We were happy with the service and decided to do another building with Retro Experts. Overall I highly recommend this company.

I have been doing a few deals for the mandatory retrofit with RETRO EXPERTS and I highly recommend them. The costumers service always nice and answer you're questions. Dee, Ari, Hilda, Ariel, Abraham and the others staff, make a good team. Hilda works with the tenants just perfect, she treats them like a friend (Thank you for that). I will use their service and the future if I need it. Thank you Retro Expert
We cannot say enough about this company especially Sean Phil who came out to check our property regarding the possible need for retrofit on our building. Prior to meeting Sean we met with other people who said we needed work. Sean came and told us we didn't! Sean has great character and integrity. They sent out their engineer (Pedram) who agreed! Be aware there are companies that will take advantage ... but you can trust Sean and Retro Experts!!

The entire process from Day One to the finish line (just completed last week) could be best described as: Seamless, painless, professional, informative, comforting, and pleasant. (more…)
Well, now that my soft story building is no longer "soft" by any means, I want to congratulate Retro Experts for a job well done. This LA City mandatory requirement was not easy to accept but at least, dealing with the staff at Retro Experts and their resources allowed me to get through it pleasantly and without hidden costs.
