The Company — Testimonials

Dear Marty,

I want to thank Michael and Jason for all of your efforts in completing our newest Islands Restaurant at the Del Monte Center in Monterey. Islands created a totally new design for our restaurant at this location, which as you're fully aware, opens up all sorts of unknown challenges for both builder and owner. Despite those numerous challenges, dealing with the mechanics of the building as well as the new design details, the project was completed timely and with few cost changes. We are quite proud of the outcome and judging by the response of our many local guests, they enjoyed this newly created Islands restaurant as well.

From your thorough and aggressive bidding of the project in the early stages, through your execution of the work, management of the sub-trades and positive relationship with City officials, Dorado Enterprises performed above our expectations. You should be rightfully proud of the team of professionals you have cultured and the reputation your firm has gained. In a time of difficult challenges for all areas of our economy, it will be your hard work, thoroughness and the actions of those around you that will help Dorado Enterprises survive and thrive.

We look forward to continuing our relationship on future projects and will certainly recommend your firm to others in the industry. Best of luck to you in this coming year and please don't hesitate to contact me if we can help in any way.

To Whom It May Concern,

This letter of recommendation is written on behalf of Marty Leiseth and Dorado Enterprises. Marty and his company have worked with us on several projects over the past few years. Marty's ability to anticipate upcoming design issues as a result of field and/or other issues has been refreshing and his participation has been important in maintaining the overall design intent for these projects. He has achieved a delicate balance, letting us know of upcoming critical dates and issues to meet a demanding schedule, yet not being an overburden. Marty also understands the importance of a team concept, he's pleasant personality and professional attitude allows him to work easily with others and solve issues in a timely fashion. He clearly has been a major element in the success of these projects.

We would highly recommend Marty Leiseth and Dorado Enterprises and look forward to working with him in the future.

Please feel free to call me anytime for additional information.
