"Working with John Hope Electric Inc. has been a pleasure. They have been helpful in both the designing of projects as well as the general completion of projects in an 'on time' and 'on budget' manner. Their work on the New Leaf Markets in Half Moon Bay and the Westside of Santa Cruz was essential to the successful opening and operation of 20,000 sq. ft. of retail space. We would recommend using John Hope Electric Inc. for both residential and commercial projects."

"John Hope Electric took care of all things electrical for two giant projects, the remodel of New Leaf Half Moon Bay and the building of the New Leaf on the Westside in Santa Cruz. Turns out the only thing more complicated to build than a grocery store is a hospital - but John Hope and his crew are both detail and service oriented and they patiently negotiated working with our GC and the other trades to get our zillions of different appliances and refrigeration units hooked up to the juice. Not only did they wire the gut's of the store, they also worked smoothly with our interior designers to collaborate with local lighting artist, Roy Johnson, to install custom designed fixtures and to create sensational atmospheric lighting throughout the retail floor. They also cheerfully did the installation on some experimental illuminated kite box fixtures made from reused sailcloth that are art in and of themselves! Because the electricians are the first to arrive and the last to leave, you really want to work with helpful, friendly, knowledgeable people who get the job done. John Hope and his crew take pride in and responsibility for their work. They are patient and thorough, and also have pretty darned good senses of humor. Ask for Hope, receive Power and Illumination!"

"Dear John Hope Electric, I'd like to commend the work of Stu Hacker who repaired a faulty circuit in my house on Monday morning. After calling 3 other companies, yours was the first to have a technician available within the hour. Stu was professional, personable, respectful, and exhibited amazing skill in locating the break in the faulty circuit. I spent many hours the day before (unsuccessfully) trying to locate the problem with an ohmmeter. I was impressed that Stu listened to my observations in investigating the problem. If I ever need the services of an electrician in the future, I'll call John Hope Electric. I'll also recommend you to my friends and neighbors."

"Dear Stu, I'd like to express my sincere gratitude for your professionalism and quality work. Since your initial job proposal back in February to the nearly weekly phone calls to report on the status of PG&E confirmation, you have been a delight to work with. Your electricians Nick and Jose worked hard to bring our home up to standar with a new 200-amp service/load center. They were receptive to my questions and extremely patient in explaining their work. I trusted them implicitly to provide our home with a safe and updated electrical system. Nick returned a few days later to replace our interior load center. He even checked out some "mystery" wires in our (soon to be) baby room. Please know that John Hope Electric will receive our highest recommendation to friends and family. We look forward to offering you continued business in the near future. Thank you again for your professionalism and commitment to customer care."
