“Maurice Levitch of Levitch Associates was a pleasure and delight to work with. We appreciated his thoughtful guidance, attention to detail, superb craftsmanship, and his sense of humor. Maurice was supported by a great team of courteous, hardworking professionals, both in the office, and on site. He completed a total transformation of the facade of our house, for which we have received numerous compliments.
We highly recommend him to any of those seeking a trustworthy, skilled and professional architect, and will certainly choose him for any future work on our house.”
– Jinny W, Kensington
“Maurice Levitch, and the whole company, is AMAZING. I would highly recommend this company to anyone seeking to remodel or build a new home.
Levitch came in and proposed a great new design for our whole 2nd floor. Maurice, led the great design process focusing on what could be preserved, safest for our young sons, have as much light as possible and be a warm home.
The whole project was done in just the time promised, they always cleaned up well and were available to us regarding changes, concerns and any questions that came up..
In short, Levitch Associates, particularly Maurice, is the best.”
– Debborah M, Oakland
“Levitch Associates provided outstanding service and high quality work. I was familiar with their work having seen some other houses they had worked on. They remodeled our upstairs bathroom which included everything from the ground up; new tile, bathtub, vanity, etc. They completed the work on-time and to a very high standard of quality. I would recommend them for any job.”
– David B, Oakland
“Levitch Associates were a dream to work with—entirely professional with an uncompromising perfectionism. I needed to move out of a rental and into my house in a couple of months time, so the team remodeled my kitchen and two bathrooms at a blistering pace.
Despite the fact that I kept adding projects— fencing, fireplace and wall resurfacing, spare bedroom flooring, bedroom lighting, a concrete stair in the back yard, a dog door, etc.—my house was ready for me to move in within 2 and a half months. Maurice was remarkably adept at fashioning my roughly expressed ideas into an elegant reality; the end results consistently surpassed my expectations. I simply cannot recommend Maurice and his team highly enough.”

“Maurice and his crew did an excellent professional job! I highly recommend Levitch Associates to anyone performing a remodel. The work included rebuilding half our downstairs. It included:
2. Laundry Room
4. TV room
5. Removed brick chimney and replaced it with a gas fired one.
6. Installed crown molding throughout the house.
7. Installed custom shelves in office.
He closely followed our instructions to use eco-friendly materials.
The level of detail that was performed and the customer service was excellent. The job initially was scheduled to take 4 months and Maurice finished ahead of schedule.”
– Mark and Susan S, Oakland
“Maurice and Levitch Associates were wonderful to work with and I cannot say enough positive things about the quality of the work and their professionalism. We worked with Maurice for several years developing a master plan for the house, which ultimately turned into a 2 phase remodel project. The first phase/project was a bathroom remodel during the summer of 2010. The second phase was a much larger kitchen, 2 bathrooms, closet and hallway remodel, which was completed last Nov (2012). All the projects turned out beautifully and we couldn’t be happier.
As a design-builder, Maurice took the time to get to know us, helped us design our house to best meet our needs and oversaw the construction from start to finish. Throughout the process, he offered many helpful design recommendations, which were incorporated into our plans. Levitch made it possible for us to live in the house during the remodel. We had a fully functioning kitchen and laundry facilities that were set up in our dining room. It wasn’t easy to live through a major renovation project, but the Levitch team certainly made in it as painless as it could have been. The projects were completed on time and within the budget we set out to keep. We had change orders, but they were kept to a minimum, which helped.
We would highly recommend Maurice and Levitch Associates for any residential construction/remodel project.”
– Mimi P and John T, Berkeley
“A good friend recommended Levitch Associates to us. We were immediately pleased that Levitch Associates offers design/build service. I am happy to report that our friend didn’t steer us wrong, as we have nothing but good things to say about our experience with this recommendation.
Levitch Associates is a multi-generational family business. Maurice Levitch, our architect, is the son of the company founder, Edward Levitch. I am from a family of out-of-state builders, myself. When a family puts their name on their business, it means that their reputation is on the line. All of our interactions with the various Levitch family members were warm and professional.
Maurice’s work was creative and his crew of builders delivered top-notch construction. We love our new kitchen! And, builders from my family have complimented the quality of the work completed by Levitch Associates. It seems to us that the Levitch Family takes great pride in the quality of their work, in the relationships with their clients, and in the integrity of their family name.”
– Russ, Gina & Dante, San Francisco
“Thank you and all the team at Levitch for our beautiful bathroom. Our prior experience with remodeling the kitchen and adding a bath downstairs four years ago was so successful that we didn’t hesitate a moment in calling you when we decided it was finally time to update the upstairs bath….”
– Barbara S, Berkeley
– Barbara and Tom B, Albany
“As we learned before, everyone at Levitch is a professional with high standards….It was a pleasure to have them working in our home.
Everything went according to schedule and was completed to the day, except for a late arriving new window. To my surprise and delight, Maurice (the Merry Maid) showed up himself on the last afternoon with his mop and pail to do the final cleaning so I could take my first bath in about 25 years that weekend.”
– Rita B and Leonard S, Berkeley
“We love the archways and your amazing creative abilities. We are in awe.”
– T.R. L and Rona B-D, Oakland
“I want to thank you and the rest of your team for the excellent job you did in the original renovation of our house in 2009 and the recent follow-on project with the windows that was just completed. Please extend thanks from Sue and me to all your associates. The work was very professionally done, the workplace kept neat, and the inevitable issues that came up were resolved well. We hosted an open house for our neighbors recently and put in a good word for you with them.”
– Bill and Sue D, Kensington

” . . . Working with you and the other members of your team was a pleasure. It was such an advantage to have Levitch Associates handle both the design and build phase. Working directly with Ed and Maurice, there were absolutely no hassles negotiating with subcontractors and other firms; you handled it all for us! We really appreciated the frequent updates and communications about our project. We thank you that the job came within the budget we planned and that there were no surprises. Lastly, we appreciate your attention to detail and perfectionism. You really stand by your work and it shows. Thank you for an excellent job.”
– Jon L and Jena R, Berkeley
“The entire experience, from the tear out to the upstairs to the final finishing details, leaves us remarkably satisfied and even more convinced of how right it was to work with your company. We will do more to this old house, and we will not consider working with any other company but Levitch Associates, Inc.
We are so thankful to all of your staff in the office and on the job-site who are consummate skilled professionals, consistently considerate and patient, neat, clean and careful. It’s obvious why Levitch Associates, Inc. has been in business for over forty years! Thank you for everything. Please count on us for referrals and references.”
“We are writing this letter to thank you for the incredible job you and your firm did on our home remodel this past winter. We absolutely love our new home. We offer the highest recommendation to any prospective customers of both your architectural and building services.”
– Debby and Tom W, Berkeley
“Both Chris and I have only the highest praise to give Maurice and the many workmen and subcontractors involved in this large project. Despite the great potential for disruption to our daily life (we had workers in our home nearly every day for four months), we did not have one problem with the process or the work performed. Every person working for the Levitch team was highly professional, and clearly cared greatly about the finished work product. We actually enjoyed the opportunity to interact with Maurice and the workers on a daily basis, to view the progress made and discuss architectural options. There were no surprises or delays. Everything was finished to our pleasing, according to schedule and the original contract price.”
– Chris P and Betsy C, Oakland
“An amazing thing has happened over the past few months: your organization as restored my faith that there are still businesses run by people who have talent, integrity and business acumen. Having worked with a number of other contractors over the years, I know all too well this combination is nearly impossible to find.
I have never felt compelled to write a letter this laudatory to anyone I have done business with. In fact, most often the letters following similar undertakings have been notes of dissatisfaction. You have earned our trust, our thanks and our friendship for the manner in which you have partnered with us.”

“I am writing to express my sincere appreciation of the work you did to build a second story addition to my house. The work was major, including installation of a steel moment frame that rises vertically 3 stories, from the basement to the roof…. Everyone visiting my home since the work have been extremely complimentary… the new spaces are light filled and integrated creatively to make my home both function practically and feel very welcoming and comfortable.
I wish to state emphatically that all the work is of top quality . . . with Maurice Levitch as the principal architect and master contractor. As just an example of his care and thoughtfulness, I wish to give the following example. While most years the month of May is rain free in the Bay Area, this spring was an exception. One night at about 2 a.m. there was a large downpour. As the new roof was not complete, I noticed some rain coming in through the temporary tarps. I know it was the middle of the night, but felt comfortable enough to call Maurice at his home to ask him to come and help me with the tarps. As it turns out, Maurice was not at home; instead, I heard his truck pull up outside my house. He was already on his way before I could even call him.”
