“MKB Partners did an amazing job on our kitchen remodel. They took a very dark, 70s-style kitchen and turned it into a bright, contemporary, highly functional cooking and dining space for our busy family. We were extremely pleased with the quality of work and the sound advice. Most importantly, the project stayed true to budget.”

“It was a privilege and a delight to work with Michael. He was conscientious, responsive, and pragmatic. His expertise is wide-ranging and the subcontractors he hired were similarly skilled. Under Michael’s direction, our kitchen renovation project was completed on time and under budget. And we love it!”

"Within the very short period between closing and moving in, the desolate state of the basement in our new home, built mid-19th century, had to be improved drastically. The humidity was one worry; the purpose of support for the whole two-story house not being adequate was the other worry. MKB Partners LLC (MKB) took care of everything: meet the schedule given, provide the necessary working permits, assign competent contractors for each upcoming task and stand them by as advisor until completion of the project. During this same time, MKB, again together with contractors of their choice, took care of the wooden floors and walls on the first and second floor of the house. MKB made it possible for us to move in an entirely safe home, stabilized in its structure, renovated according to our exigencies and the agreed-upon budget. We will not hesitate to mandate MKB for all the upcoming renovations inevitable in such an ancient property."

"Michael was very hands on with the projects at our home. We were getting two bathrooms and kitchen redone, plus creating an extra room (dry wall). He was great at making recommendations in terms of costs and qualities of various products, appliances...etc. so we don't spend unnecessary money. If anything became delayed or early, he would always let us know right away. He was great at communicating and making sure all goes well. Very knowledgeable with everything and trustworthy."

"We had a great experience with Mike on our home renovation project. It involved moving our kitchen to another room and uncovering and restoring a 130-year-old fireplace and chimney. It also included a mud room, laundry room and bathroom. Mike and his crew were able to work with an older house like ours and the result has been great - very tasteful and in keeping with the character of the house. Mike has a good attention to detail and design sense that is rare in contractors. We would highly recommend his firm."

"Mike Bernier and MKB Partners are fantastic. We have engaged them for two home renovation projects in the past five years and both were great successes, finishing on time and under budget. We get a steady stream of compliments from friends who admire the design and craftsmanship of our renovated kitchen and cedar screen porch. Mike has sound judgment, is pragmatic, communicates clearly, and chooses good subcontractors and colleagues. He has earned our complete trust and enthusiastic recommendation."

"My husband and I bought a 1920s colonial house in Newton Centre that needed a gut renovation. Mike and his team of subcontractors ran the 9-month project professionally and efficiently. It included an addition for a much needed mudroom and larger (kosher) kitchen, relocating a bathroom, reinsulation of the entire house, replacement of almost all the windows, and resurfacing walls, ceilings and floors. Mike was especially good at explaining the many choices and decisions we had to make throughout the construction process. The result is truly amazing! Our run-down old house was completely transformed into the bright, warm, and beautiful family home we had imagined. I highly recommend Mike Bernier and MKB Partners."

"MKB Partners remodeled my house over a year ago and I am so, so happy with the final product. We have nothing but the highest praise for the people, their professionalism, and the work. As someone who has lived through three major renovations that included kitchen remodels, finishing basements, adding bathrooms etc., this is one of the few companies that I would feel comfortable recommending to my family and friends. The work is of the highest quality. It's clear to anyone who walks in to my home that a lot of thought, effort and detail went into my home. From the hooks in our redesigned mudroom to this house being the most energy efficient home I have ever lived in, I could not be happier. They are extremely professional and kind to boot - during the worst winter we've ever had, MKB checked in on us to make sure that the house was weathering all the snow and then came to help us get snow off the roof preemptively. Every single one of our neighbors had issues with their home and the snow EXCEPT for us. It's rare to find this combination of skill and professionalism in this industry and I recommend them to anyone without reservation."
