To Whom It May Concern:

Tillman Companies was recommended to us for a small 10,000 dollar job seven years ago. Although a small job, Tillman Companies treated us well, finished the job on time, and graciously accommodated our demands. Allen Tillman and his crew exceeded my expectations and did everything as I requested. The end product was everything that we wanted and more. It is my philosophy that anything worth doing is worth doing better and I expect constant growth in my employees as well as in my contractors. Growth does not occur unless criticism is offered and I’ve offered lots of criticism over the past 7 years. Tillman Companies has always taken my criticism seriously and made strides towards the perfection that I seek. This is one of their greatest strengths.

The next time we had a renovation that cost 750,000 dollars; we didn’t even take bids, we gave the business to Tillman. The next job was a million dollar renovation which we also gave to Tillman without hesitation. After that, we purchased a second building and gave the 1.5 million dollar remodeling contract to Tillman Companies. We now have one of the most beautiful offices in Knoxville. Everyone that comes to visit us always compliments our offices immensely. The credit is all due to Tillman Companies for their honesty, hard work, eagerness, and trustworthiness.

Sincerely, H. M. H.

This was the best work we’ve ever had done at our house. Steve did an excellent job and I would not give a higher recommendation.

Tillman remodeled our master bath and it turned out so much better than expected. We love it! Kallee, Steve, Corey and the whole Tillman team were excellent. I can’t believe how clean they kept the house during the renovation. The final product is beautiful and under budget! I would highly recommend them. Check out photos at “Elegant Master Bathroom Remodel.”

Dear Allen,

I am writing this letter to tell why Tillman Companies is our contractor of choice.

In early 2004 HRS Properties began construction of a new office building in West Knoxville. Busy with other projects, we decided to hire our own owner’s representative to assist us with building plans, hiring a general contractor and overseeing the construction on our behalf.  We chose Tillman Companies to fulfill that role.  This turned out to be an excellent decision, making the construction process go much smoother and saving us money in the long run.

Later, as Tillman began to expand its own operations as general contractor, we used Tillman for a number of office remodeling jobs, and they are still working on projects for us today.

Tillman gives us a highly competitive price on every job, and always comes in at or under budget.  We have excellent communication during construction and get an accurate and informative breakdown of costs.  Allen and his staff are always courteous, professional and willing to do the extra things to make us happy.

Tillman Companies is certainly our “contractor of choice”.  We have been pleased with every project they have worked on over the past nine years, and I am sure we will continue to look to Tillman first over the coming years.

Sincerely, R. E., General Partner

Dear Rob,

I wanted to tell you how very much I appreciate all of your interest and expertise in the building of the outdoor classroom. It is beautiful and I know it would not have gotten completed so quickly and smoothly without you on the front end. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sincerely, E.

Dear Allen,

As you know, our companies have had the good fortune to partner together on several commercial projects over the years. Without exception, I have found your team to be nothing but excellent in respect to quality of work, timeliness of work, and of course professionalism. I never have a moment’s hesitation to referring you to any of our clients for their general contracting work nor do I hesitate bringing you in to assist us at Shoffner Mechanical Services on any of our work.

Recently, though, I gave you the true test. My wife and I wanted to remodel our bathroom at home and I knew of no one to turn to other than you and your team. I can say without trepidation that we went in the right direction in choosing your company. When you are working with your own money, in your own home, one has a tendency to be very cautious with whom you spend it with.

I want to say your team exceeded our expectations! The quality of work of the finished bathroom far exceeded our expectations and without a doubt it turned out better than we had hoped. Both Tim and Corey did a fantastic job! They let my wife know exactly what was going on all the time and after they completed their work each day they cleaned up and kept a very clean and organized workspace as well.

Suffice to say, Allen; your team truly has passed our litmus test both at home and on the commercial job site. I can’t recommend your company enough to either my friends or with whom I deal with professionally. I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for us both at Shoffner and at my home.

With Best Regards, J. S.

Director of Operations – Shoffner Mechanical Services
