“Ryan has been amazing. As an experienced estimator myself I came to this company because of a project that exceeded my skill. Ryan not only promptly assisted but provided such stellar service the estimate was above reproach. The professionalism and results warrant 6 stars, if that were an option.”
“When this business gets really tough, or an expert is the only way, I can always count on Empire to hit the homerun.”
“Helping my business like crazy, thanks for the support. Ryan is a rockstar, accurate, sharp and good people.”
“I purchased an estimate from them that came in several thousand over the adjuster report and is in the process of approval. The adjuster said that only one item is in question and is a code verification issue. I am amazed at the speed at which EE processed my estimate and have started my second claim with them. Thank you for being a great asset to our company!!”
