Comments: Great people to work with. They listen to you, understand your vision, respectfully provide their knowledge. They create your idea but, better than what you had in mind.

Comments: Great Company to work with. The cost was lower then my other estimates even when the budget was higher then estimated, and still gave me a discount for my Military service. It took a little longer then expected, but was a big job. I am extremely happy with the end product.

Comments: Boss man Jim, Jose and Jonathon were very attentive to the details of the project, incorporated helpful design elements and executed the work in a timely manner. Jose and Jonathon kept the jobsite clean and organized, picked up at the end of the day and were very accommodating as we have multiple pups between the two homes the work was being done. The wall looks great and I am using Jim&amp;#39;s services for more projects.

Comments: We had a great experience with Jim and the crew! They installed a retaining wall in our backyard, and had all the right tools and the best attitude. Very professional. My two year old son loved watching them work and made new friends! Would definitely recommend Jim and his crew. Looking forward to working with them in the future!

Comments: Jim and the team at BSR construction were AWESOME! From the initial visit, Jim took the time to discuss the project with us. Based on those discussions we made many changes before they even started. Jim had some great ideas and really helped us see what the wall could look like. BSR employees Callan and Joe were great to work with. Once the project got going we would discuss the project with them as well. They were more then willing to make any changes on the fly. They also contributed some great ideas to the project. This was a big project for us. Working with BSR construction made it so much easier and with no stress.! We are extremely happy with BSR and our retaining wall. My wife and I would highly recommend BSR Construction. Wall looks AMAZING!

Comments: Jim, the owner, communicates well, had great suggestions for our project, and gave a fair price. The BSR Construction workers, Callan and Joe, started on time every day and worked full days until the job was done. They made suggestions on the design, that we accepted, which gave the project a spectacular look. We highly recommend BSR Construction.

Comments: We cannot say enough good things about this top-notch crew! Jim and his crew are very professional, courteous, and trustworthy. They are super easy to work with and very gracious in every way. They arrived on time every day, and worked extremely hard for us. They asked pertinent questions so that our retaining wall was built exactly as we wanted it (they were very easy to communicate with and worked with us very well). The cost of our retaining wall and landscape of our lawn was very reasonable in comparison with other contractors in our area, and the workmanship is outstanding! We are asking Jim and his crew to come back and finish all of our stone work around the house.

Review Date: 09/25/2015 | Author: David F.

Comments: This retaining wall went well using mutual materials northwest blend block and they were 65 lbs a piece. All our family and friends really like how it looks. We did our own backfill and plantings. BSR kept their work area safe and clean and didn&apos;t leave without cleaning up and say they will seeus tomorrow. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Comments: The job was done on budget, and within the scheduled amount of time. Jim and the crew were extremely friendly and easy to work with and ensured we were 100% satisfied. It was reassuring to find a company that still placed a high value on customer satisfaction and performing outstanding craftsmanship. Our expectations were exceeded and the price was below other bids we received. We now have a usable backyard to enjoy for years to come and could not be happier. We would strongly recommend BSR and would use them again in the future.

Review Date: 02/23/2015 | Author: Randy A.

Comments: Jim and his crew were excellent to work with, quick response and they started the project in two days. Jim spent a lot of time walking the project and sitting down with us to understand what we were looking for in a design. The design and build of two tiered retaining wall looks amazing, which included stairs in the middle to access my lower yard. Lots of creativity went into the design of 100 foot length wall including curved walls on one side to match my winding sidewalk. We are looking forward to working with BSR construction on other projects in the future.

Review Date: 02/13/2015 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: I hired BSR Construction to replace an existing concrete retaining wall with a block retaining wall. This was a large difficult project that turned out great and am very impressed with the finished product. Initially, we got off on the wrong foot but were able to work through our differences and come to an agreement. Not working with Jim before, I wanted to know exactly what I was paying for. However, after they got started, it was obvious JIm knew what he was doing. Jim is very understanding and does go above and beyond to make sure the customer is happy. I would recommend BRS Construction to anyone needing a retaining wall or dirt work.

Review Date: 01/08/2015 | Author: Alan B.

Comments: Jim was great, from my brief description he knew what we wanted, needed and how to get it done. The crew took his direction and ran with it completing the project in one day. My neighbors are impressed! Would definitely recommend and re-hire. Thanks

Review Date: 09/07/2014 | Author: Tony C.

Comments: One of Jim???s many strengths is that he understands how to listen to customers. Jim and his staff consistently impressed us with their willingness to do whatever it took to get the job done, and more importantly, make us happy. Jim also adds an artistic flair to everything he produces. He transformed our useless back yard with an upward slope into a multi-tiered, functional yard that we???ll enjoy for many years. By the way, his paver patio work is brilliant, too. Thank you, Jim. We hope you can fit us into your busy schedule in the future for some additional projects!

Comments: Jim and his employees are the best. They did an excellent job on the retaining wall and stairs.They also installed a new drain system to keep water from our septic tank and lower yard.

Comments: nice job

Review Date: 04/20/2014 | Author: Sue K.

Comments: My project involved the replacement of (3) 80&apos; rotted railroad beam retaining walls with Northwest Blend block wall. I felt Jim&apos;s passion for this type of work from the first time we met. His vision transformed our backyard. To access the area, the crew had to come through our neighbor&apos;s property. The neighbor&apos;s were very impressed with the care taken to restore their yard after the project was completed. The job was on budget, on time, and exceptionally well done. A 5 Star Rating does not begin to reflect the professionalism and work ethic of Jim and his crew.

Comments: In August of 2013 BSR Construction built a retaining wall for me. Just last week Jim Collen the owner of BSR Construction did something unusual for a Contractor, he stopped by my house to confirm everything was OK after 1 year from completion, and even made some minor adjustments to the wall. He deserves 5 stars for his dedication to the job.

Review Date: 08/13/2013 | Author: Jennifer W.

Comments: This was a relatively small job (20-30 foot long, 2-3 feet high). Jim did a great job from the time we met, to completing the job on-budget and fast. My only critique is that I didn&apos;t have a specific plan, so the wall was not as curved as I expected, and it did not curve in to the sidewalk as we had discussed. It looks wonderful, my neighbors are extremely happy with it, and all the concrete rubble that had been a make-shift wall is gone!

Comments: Jim is a retaining wall genius!!! He and his team did a phenomenal job designing and building the retaining wall. He worked with me the entire time and periodically followed up to verify that we were happy with his work. He did not nickle-and-dime us with any minor changes; he was right on target with the quote! He was on time, within budget, and defect free! He gave us what we wanted, when we wanted it 100% of the time. We interviewed three other prospective contractors, and he sets himself apart through his experience, know-how, creativity, and customer service. Because of his exceptional work, we have already hired him again!

Comments: I had 11 large trees (Douglas fir) downed and a gravel driveway put in. Jim, the owner, is a really nice guy that did a really good job. Friendly, professional, prompt. He also brought in a subcontractor - Backhome Tree Service. That owner, Charles, also did a great job dropping really large trees right next to my cedar fence -- with no problems. I&apos;d recommend either anytime.

Review Date: 01/29/2010 | Author: Lilly S.

Comments: Brush and Stump removal went above and beyond our expectations! Professional and thorough they replaced a chain-link fence with beautiful cedar and built a retaining wall which leveled our property. They also created an off alley parking area for our vehicles. The personal touches (relocating our rose bushes, for example) craftsmanship and attention to detail were extraordinary. We highly recommend this company and have passed the good word onto friends who have house projects that require a highly professional team. Estimates on target and quite reasonable rates, too!

Review Date: 08/17/2009 | Author: Sharon O.

Comments: Jim, the owner, was our contact. He was prompt, courteous and we accepted his estimate. He started when he said he would and finished when he said he would. He had excellent ideas which we incorporated. He did a little extra work and did not charge more. He &amp; his workmen were a treat to be around and they cleaned up when they were finished. We like our retaining wall and would reccommend them highly. They even gave us photos of the work they did!
