"I had an incredibly good experience working with Matias and Home Express when I decided to gut my new Miami Beach condo and remodel the space. That kind of construction would have made me nervous under ordinary circumstances, and I was especially concerned because I live a thousand miles away from Miami Beach and was therefore unable to “oversee” the work in person. With Matias leading my home contracting project, I could not have found a better person to do the job! At the outset, he came up with floor plan solutions that helped me to get the most out of the space in ways that I wanted but would have never imagined. Throughout the entire construction process, he was very specific and transparent in the way he presented the schedule, costs, and budgets, and best of all --he followed through on all of his promises. The project came in right on time and budget and there were no surprises. Matias’ crew did quality work and I would highly recommend Home Express to anyone looking to remodel their residential or commercial property on Miami Beach."

We were very pleased with the work performed by Matias Otero and his Home Express team. We decided to hire Matias based on very favorable reports of his work from other residents in our building. From the time we first met with Matias, to the end of the project, the entire experience was excellent. The design features we requested were incorporated over the time period projected by Matias and the entire remodeling project was completed within our budget. Matias kept us updated of all remodeling progress via personal e-mails and telephone calls and he was really responsive to any and all questions we had. When we retuned to our vacation condo, we found a transformed unit finished beyond our expectations and cleaner than we left it! In sum, given that we were out of state during the entire time of the project, we could not have wished for a better outcome!

Before working with Matias and his Home Express team, we have had very bad experiences with other contractors. But thank goodness we found Matias! We have worked with Matias since he started remodeling homes at the South Pointe Tower. Matias is responsible for renovating our kitchen and opening up our living room, giving us the chance to enjoy the view while we cook. He also replaced our old windows with hurricane resistant windows. We must admit, we were worried about the mess that would be in our unit. We live in Germany and he promised us that next time we came back to Miami, both units would be ready. The time-frame was not very long so we were a bit worried, but when we arrived, we found our unit clean and with wonderful windows and new shades. Now our condo has a totally different and better look and feel. In addition to doing remodeling for us, whenever we have small projects, Matias and his team of experts always assist us right away. It was a pleasure to work with Home Express and Matias and we look forward to working with him again in the future. Matias and his team are very nice, friendly and helpful and we are glad we met them!

It was a pleasant experience to work Matias Otero from Home Express. I bought my Apartment in South Pointe Towers in April of 2013 and it needed to be completed gutted and remodeled. In June of 2013, I had a meeting with Matias where everything regarding the refurbishment was arranged including the deadline in December 2013. I was contacted a couple of times via Skype during the project on details and updates. On the 20th of November 2013, I contacted Matias regarding the furniture for the Apartment. He was happy to inform me that the entire Apartment was done, cleaned and ready for furniture delivery which he also handled. My wife and I arrived in Miami on December 10th 2013. To our greatest joy, we saw the Apartment was in a class of its own with every detail made flawlessly. Matias and his Home Express team have shown us you can trust him in every aspect of a remodeling project including timeframe and budget. I warmly recommend Home Express to anyone in the South of Fifth Miami Beach area!

We are very thankful for Matias and Home Express for completing our total renovation of our unit, including brand new hurricane resistant windows. When we purchased our unit, we knew that a complete remodel was necessary. We were introduced to Matias shortly after buying the unit and we never looked back! We had heard many horror stories about Miami Beach contractors and were nervous about our selection of a contractor. After meeting Matias in person, we NEVER had another nervous moment. Matias and his team did exactly what they said they would at the time they said it would be done and for the price. Best of all, the quality of work done was great and what we were looking for. We place a high value on quality and character, and these are attributes that Matias definitely offers! The entire Home Express team have never disappointed us and we are honored to share our home remodeling experience with them. We only wish Matias and his team could do our renovation in Park City, UT!

I live in Massachusetts, I am a CPA with my own practice and Matias Otero started my renovation in January of 2013. I knew that there was absolutely no way that I would be able to go to Miami to check on the renovation until May and by that time, it would almost be done. Due to this factor, I was very nervous. Before I even hired Matias and Home Express, I actually met with two other contractors. I had heard from other people in the SoFi area that Matias was one of the best general contractors and that I really didn’t need to worry. To be honest, I did not believe that that could be true with the horror stories I have heard about contractors in Miami. My Miami Beach vacation home remodeling project is now done and I can say that after going through my renovation with Matias, it is true — the entire remodeling and renovation came out even better than I had expected! That, in and of itself says a lot because I have very, very high expectations. Matias actually took my one bedroom unit and made it into a two bedroom unit with a galley type kitchen. It is quite spectacular.

I have such confidence and respect for Home Express and the work that they produce that I have another unit in the Portofino that I would let Matias and his team renovate if I was going to renovate it. Matias really does all that he says in his contract, doesn’t over bill like some contractors and can really have any place turn-key ready!
