Tony Talisse, with his personal attention to detail, delivers the best quality construction for your home. Tony has remodeled two homes for my wife and I. One was a very large scope remodel to a 6,200 sq. ft. home in Nellie Gail (a home Tony originally designed and built twenty years earlier) and one is our current home in Corona del Mar. As both an architect and builder, Tony brings a strong talent to design and experience to complete a wide range of home building and remodeling projects. Tony often draws an architectural detail on the spot to solve a construction problem, or create an aesthetically superior solution.
Tony Talisse is hands down the best contractor I have worked with. His passion, resourcefulness, and knowledge are the prefect combination for creating a beautiful home. He is fast and efficient. When Tony makes a promise you can trust he will keep it! I would recommend him to anyone looking for superb quality work and incredible customer care.
Talisse Construction was referred to us by our realtor since we just moved to the area and not familiar with any contractors. What a gem, we had purchased a house built in the 60’s that had a kitchen that needed a lot of improvement. Tony walked in and after letting him know what we were looking for he gave us wonderful suggestions and after seeing the plans drawn up, we were very pleased. He suggested flooring and countertops that were wonderful. We now have a wonderful kitchen I enjoy using and updated home. We were in Arizona at the time of construction and every time we would have a thought of something else we would like to do he would say “no problem”. We ended up adding fans, bathroom vanities, wine fridge etc. but Tony and his team had everything ready for us when we moved back in on May 15th, our scheduled date.
Tony Talisse is bar none, the most respectful, professional, experienced, and knowledgeable general contractor my husband and I have ever worked with. He puts high value on quality control, which includes presence and timely availability on the jobsite when needed. He coordinates and supervises the work of his subs in every stage of the work, ensuring clarity about what and how he wants the work to be done, while simultaneously, listening to and respecting their functional expertise, and explaining necessary changes needed or “unexpected surprises” to the customer (typical when walls get torn out). On adhering to timelines, Tony underpromises and overdelivers: our estimated timeline for project completion was 10 wks (for kitchen and master bath renovation). Despite unexpected delays on materials’ availability, and the “usual” surprises when walls get torn out, Tony’s team finished in 5 weeks. Flippin incredible!! Several keys to his success: He has strong, respectful, and long-standing relationships with his contractors and pays them promptly when they finish each work phase; thus they may tend to prioritize his work requests in their schedules. Secondly, he does not stretch himself too thin, and actively and carefully manages the work he commits to, and the customers he chooses to work with. His multi-lingual skills allows him to connect well and clearly with both contractors and customers, and to skillfully defuse situations causing tension between subs, or between customers and subs. This started out as a work relationship, and Tony has become a friend, a rarity in the project management world, when you can count yourself fortunate to be on speaking terms with your GC at the end of a job!
I obtained Tony’s expertise when I decided to purchase my high rise condo which needed a lot of remodeling. I cannot tell you how THRILLED I am for making that decision. Tony went above and beyond to help me pick the perfect new flooring, bathroom and kitchen cabinets, walls and even helped me design the layout of all my furniture! He took it one step further by even advising me on artwork. You just don’t find this level of trust in anyone. Tony had such professional men that showed up on time, everyday and so clearly mapped out what was going to be done. Tony always checked in with me and supervised the work to ensure utmost quality and outcome. As a working professional, I never had to worry about having someone in my home. The final outcome is beyond stunning and I am constantly complimented on how beautiful my condo is. I owe it all to Tony!
Tony and Leslie were extremely helpful when We built our new home. They were always on Top of ordering materials and following through from start To finish. They are so professional and we would Refer them to anyone that is interested in Remodeling their home.
I am a very detailed residential designer from Arizona with a personal project to be completed ... in my absence !!! Tony Talisse totally lived up to my very high expectations. He completely transformed two bathrooms...a powder room and a master bath... in a most professional, timely fashion. He followed detailed specs exactly, communicated with me throughout, and, most importantly, his workmanship was SUPERB !!! I highly recommend him...for any project !!! So happy I discovered such a gem!
Let’s face it. There are a lot of designers and remodeling companies out there but very few have the approach to a remodel that Talisse Construction has. When I first walked into this little showroom I was immediately in awe with all the new and beautiful things. When I met with Tony I didn’t have a clear vision of what I wanted but after a few minutes talking with him he started clarifying it. For me the thing that really made me choose him was that it was ALL in one shop. He carried my vision from concept to completion. He even went furniture shopping with me so my home had a continuity. I can’t express enough how pleasant and actually enjoyable my experience had been. AND he stayed with in my budget!!!
Tony and his crew are all craftsmen of the highest quality. Tony uses subs that he has worked with for years and that he knows will do great work. His oversight of them and coordination of the work has always been excellent. As a custom builder, he worked very closely with us, our architect and the designers during all phases of planning and construction. His suggestions were always timely and right on the mark. He completed our project 3 months in advance of the agreed timeline. We are very pleased with the outcome of this important development that we have done with Tony Talisse and are pleased to recommend him to others, without reservation. Nazie and Edward Arshi
“Talisse Construction, Inc. completed an extensive remodel project at our home, including room addition, deck addition, wood floor installation, painting throughout, installation of built-in custom cabinetry in four rooms, installation of ceiling beams, etc. The quality of their work was excellent. Tony Talisse clearly cared that everything was done properly, even noticing things that we didn’t that needed correction. The entire team was very pleasant to work with, always responded promptly to concerns/questions, were reliable and thoughtful. Tony provided a great combination of general contractor work and design guidance. He had an eye for extras and solutions we hadn’t thought of and had strong opinions regarding design, which I appreciated since design is not my strength at all! However, I sense he would also be very accommodating for clients that have their own strong opinions, and he was certainly perceptive at quickly gauging our tastes/preferences and going from there.

“Tony was referred to me by a friend who had him remodel her town home. She was thrilled with the results and I was too. We remodeled the entire house, tearing down walls and stripping the kitchen and all three baths to the studs. Tony’s vision, design sense and customer service were simply terrific!”
