Re. Recommendation of Rod Spector, R. Spector & Co.
Rod Spector is an artist who works in the medium of houses. His sense of lighting, proportion, colors, shape, textures is brilliant. When we first met him he spent several hours asking us how we lived. he then totally redesigned our house to accommodate our lifestyle. His design was startling because it reflected how closely he listened to us. The craftsmanship was outstanding. His subs were first rate. Rod was hands on from start to finish. Any questions we had were thoroughly answered. We were consulted on all decisions, large and small, and Rod was a fount of thoughtful advice. The final cost was close to his initial budget and his bills were transparent.
We think Rod is a master of his craft, and we consider ourselves extremely fortunate that he agreed to design and complete the remodel of our home. We highly recommend him, and we can be contacted at the above address and numbers, should anyone need further information.
Very truly yours,
Delos E. & Marguerite L. Brown
This letter is to express my appreciation of your extraordinary efforts to custom build my personal residence. My home is located on an ocean front slide area which presented a multitude of technical and design issues that were most difficult. You were able to bring in the right experts to solve these issues as well as use your own forces to make sure the work was performed smoothly.
I think the area that was most impressive is your passion to understand and deliver exactly the look and feel of a home that I am most comfortable to live in and proud to entertain my friends and family. You were able to take a “builder’s set” of bare bone drawings and produce a beautiful home that took tireless efforts to track down and present multiple choices of materials and finishes. Your recommendations from these choices, knowing my desires of the finished product, produced the wonderful house I call home.
Thanks for a job well done,

To Whom It My Concern:
I have been active member of real estate community in Los Angeles for over thirty years, and have been manager of Malibu Colony Office of Coldwell Banker since 1989.
Over the years, I have personally observed the work of Rod Spector and R. Spector and Company on numerous homes and estates throughout Malibu. In my opinion, his commitment to supreme customer service to his high-end clients is unmatched by any other professional in the construction business. The results exhibited in his homes exemplify his devotion to supreme quality of craftsmanship and the highest attention to design and detail.
I would highly recommend Rod Spector to anyone contemplating building a custom home, or doing comprehensive remodel of a custom home.

This note serves as an endorsement of Rod Spector’s outstanding work as builder of our beautiful home at 5825 Philip Ave., Malibu, CA.
We hired Rod and his team in 2006, to build a 4,400 sq. ft. home on an existing 2,800 sq. ft. footprint. We had been referred to Rod by a mutual friend who spoke of his reputation as a premium builder and an honest, trustworthy individual.
Rod surpassed our high expectations. He and his longstanding team of employees (some of whom have been with him for more than 20 years) not only built a quality home on schedule and on budget, but were a delight to work with throughout the entire 18-month process of final planning & construction. His crew impressed us on a daily basis with their pride of craftsmanship, professionalism and work ethic.
He helped us manage the constant decision making process, by skillfully presenting us with timelines, options and recommendations. Rod was instrumental in offering cost-saving tips, while always providing us with creative options based on our budget constraints or priorities. Rod’s design background was invaluable with key decisions on finishes, like custom cabinets and built-ins, to name just a few.
Rod is also an excellent communicator and collaborator. He always kept us apprised of any building code or engineering issues (crucial in avoiding cost overruns) while working well with our architect and his plan. Rod managed the sub-contractor workflow process as well—serving as our advocate to ensure that their work was performed on time, and that our mutual standards were met. His bookkeeper and partner, Mona, was accurate and organized, which helped us keep our Excel sheet up-to-date and our finances in-line.
Rod Spector is an accomplished builder who performed quality workmanship for us. Yet, his greatest asset may just be his integrity. In our working relationship Rod accomplished exactly what he set out to do—to build us a beautiful, exceptionally constructed dream home.
Feel free to contact us directly if you wish to discuss any aspect of this recommendation.
