HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“We use to work with a different electrician, and once we had a major emergency. We had to change our electrical panel. We had such a good experience with Magothy that we only hire them now. They are really excellent; they came and changed the panel for us—did a fabulous job. We have several rental houses, and we had issues with other houses and even with our own house we only go to Magothy. They are really good. They are really excellent electricians. They do their job very well; they know what they are doing. The job—the previous, other electrician—he was OK; he just used to take a long time to get things done. But not Magothy; they send as many people as necessary. They are all very experienced. They give you the estimate right away and start work. We are really, truly, very satisfied customers, and I am a picky person. Not everybody gets the same rate, but from them I can say surely that they are excellent. I would grade them an A. I would very likely recommend them.”

“Great all around.”

“Outstanding customer service to create a meeting. Electricians were punctual, friendly and efficient.”

“This company responded to a request to have our home evaluated after a lightning strike that took out a transformer on our property. We experienced some electrical failures to appliances in the house. The staff came at the time scheduled, showed professionalism in the questions asked about the problems we experienced. Their courteous manner to relieve any anxiety we had to the safety of our home was greatly appreciated. The staff located and evaluated the problem areas, and recommended options.”

“Very professional. Left my home cleaned and repaired drywall where a hole was needed for electric work. I have used them several times and will do so again. Highly recommend.”

“I had a breaker box installed. They were prompt, efficient, and did the work well. I would give them an A+.”

“They did electrical work for me. I had lights installed. I liked working with them. They were professional. I'd give them A+.”

“Magothy Electric was on time and work was done in a timely fashion.”

“They came on time and performed the work in the requested time. Very clean, very professional. No issues.”

“I had an electrical switch, one of those automatic timers installed for me. They seemed friendly, very knowledgeable. They were being somewhat honest saying their expertise wasn't needed and I had done it the right way. I appreciated that. I would give them an A overall.”

“I think they fixed a couple of outlets for me. It was easy to set up. They were prompt on their appointments, and they got it taken care of. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

“Last year they did some work, and they were fine. They did some outside work and a fence. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“They came and did the work that I asked them to do. The technician was friendly. He was professional. He explained a lot about the work that he was going to do before he did it. Noteworthy was that he presented me with a lot of the documentation on the permits that they had, before he did the work, which I thought was nice. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“They did a bunch of stuff for us. Everything was done correctly. The grade I'd give them is A.”

“They did a minor electrical job for me. It was positive, because they were personable and knowledgeable. Noteworthy was that the owner had good customer service. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“They did a panel inspection. The last time they came out and did some work, they wired my whole house. I liked the employees, and I liked the quality of work. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“They installed some decorated things. They were timely. I would give them an A. I'd be likely to recommend them.”

“They opened my electrical panel. They fixed some wiring in my box, it was a minor fix. They did a good job and they responded quickly. I would grade them an A+. I thought they were very professional. They responded in a timely manner and let me know exactly what they were doing. I would grade them A. I'm giving them best all around, they were very good.”

“It was fine, I had an exceptionally positive experience with them. We had Pure put into the backyard that needed electrical service connected to it. I would grade them an A+. They were extraordinarily professional from the first phone call to the follow up surveys. The people that came to the house were well dressed and well spoken. They were quite knowledgeable in what they were doing. They kept me advised about the process they were going through. I can't say enough about the quality of the personnel that was coming through the house. I have had experience with other electrical companies and I haven't been this pleased.”

“They installed a couple of ceiling fans. I would grade them an A+. They got it done pretty quickly, the fans worked perfectly. They explained the fans, some of the speeds that I need to avoid, they explained the product pretty well, and got it done quickly.”

“The whole experience, from getting them out there to the work that they did and when they left, it was all exceptional. I had to outfit an entire bathroom with new electrical and lights. I would grade them an A+, and I have recommended them.”

“I like their quick response. It was a Saturday and a fire started in an electrical box, and we didn't know it. They came in a couple of hours and fixed the plumbing and the electricity, which we really needed. They took care of it really fast and really prompt. We didn't know they could come out on a Saturday because this wasn't planned. After they got the electricity back on, we got the whole house rewired by them and they did a fantastic job. I would grade them an A+. I liked how they cleaned up, before they came in the house, they put the little footsies on and make sure they didn't get anything on the floor. They cleaned up after themselves and did a great job.”

“I was very pleased with them. They put in a new exterior hook up from the electrical company to the house. I would grade them an A. I especially liked their receptionist because she kept me informed because this was a multilevel process. The county gets involved and then the electric company gets involved. So there were several different appointments. She was wonderful about keeping me informed and reminding me when I had to be there.”

“They did some basic switch stuff. I would grade them an A+. It was actually the owner that came out and did the work on a weekend himself, which showed me a lot.”

“They did some work in a basement remodel and at a commercial spot I have. They're A+. They did what they said they were going to do. The work was professionally done, on time, and at the price that they said they were going to do it. No complaints.”

“I had him do an inspection for something and he ended up replacing some of the stuff in the fuse box and some other things. I would give them an A+ grade. I liked that they got back to me quickly and got somebody out there quickly. The work was done the same day as the inspection and the guy went above and beyond offering to help with other things around the house for anything else that I needed.”

“They were great. They installed five ceiling fans. They're an A+ company. They called, said we have this issue going on and what we can do. They had an emergency call happen, so I didn't sit around waiting because I knew what was going on, so that was good. I have already recommended them.”

“It was great, they've always been good. We are redoing downstairs. They get an A+ from me. I don't get around very well, I was upstairs, and they were downstairs. I didn't even know they were here, can't get any better than that.”

“They were professional, they knew their stuff. They helped design the solution instead of doing only what I asked. They were flexible. They did lighting and ceiling fan installation. I would grade them an A+, they were really good. I have already recommended them to a friend.”

“I've used them a couple of times. They were hanging a light fixture in a master closet, a light fixture in dining room, and then a check on the front step exterior lights. They are very easy to schedule, very polite and professional. They're upfront with pricing and explain what they are going to do, why, and how. They make sure that your informed about what you are going to do before you do it. It was A+ work. I have recommended them.”

“They replaced and moved an outlet. We've worked with them before, they come when they say they are going to come. I would grade them an A+.”

“They did a wire circuit job. I liked that they were clean, professional, and straightforward. I would grade them an A.”

“I kept having a circuit that was blowing, I kept tripping a fuse in there, and they ran that problem down. It took them a while, but they were diligent about it, they did a good job, and they fixed it. I would grade them an A. Everything was off the scale. I would recommend them.”

“We are finishing our downstairs basement and they pretty much did all the electrical down there. They have to come back and finish, but it's almost 99.99 percent finished. They were personable, knowledgeable, and professional. I would grade them an A.”

“They've done a very good job. It had something to do with our circuit breaker, our air conditioner kept triggering something to go off. They were very responsive; they sent me an email of the electrician that was coming out. They deserve an A.”

“They did a great job. I would grade them an A.”

“They were great. They did some ceiling fans and some wiring. I would grade them an A. I would recommend them.”
