The Keselman Construction Group Difference
What makes Keselman Construction Group different? Our background. Most people on our team are legal immigrants from Ukraine, and because of our origin, we consider living in this country and having a career to be a huge privilege. Our clients have a large selection of contractors in the area to choose from, and we are truly blessed and thankful every time our team is chosen.
A good deal of our business comes from satisfied clients who refer us to their friends and family. We are often told how different we are to work with compared to other construction and renovation companies, and the fact is we take a lot of pride in hearing these types of remarks. The reason we’re different is simple…our team members strive to embody the following guiding principles:
- Positive Attitude
- Value to our Clients
- Dedication to Quality and Service
