Jessica Ballesteros, Design Consultant
I have had a great experience working with California Closets from inquiry/design through final installation - professional, creative, and flexible - just what I needed. I got started dealing with a small condo with a closet with old angles - I wanted to redo the closet to better use what space and decided that I needed help from a professional to maximize storage and organization. I visited the showroom in Berkeley to get an idea of what products offered looked like in person and based on what I saw went ahead and set up an appointment for a home consultation. Jessica came to my place, accommodating my crazy work schedule, and we were able to talk about my needs while looking at the closet that needed work. After taking measurements and looking through the catalog - within 10 minutes, she had put together a 3-D computer model of what my closet could look like - and well within the budget I had anticipated. Following that consultation, I identified another shelving project that I wanted to get done and after sending Jessica the measurements, she designed a unit that was not only functional (with shelves and cabinets), but looked really good in the drawings. Deciding to move forward on the installation, was very impressed that the final project exceeded my mental picture of what the units would look like.Installation was very effecient and of the highest quality - Dany arrived promptly per the scheduled appointment time and went to work immedietely - within a few hours, both projects were complete. I was not only pleased with the final product, but if I had not been there, I wouldn't even know anyone had been in my place - minus the new units installed - Dany was very respectful and went above and beyond to clean up any trace of the install. I can only give California Closets stellar reviews from start to finish and would absolutely recommend them to anyone I know looking to invest in similar projects.
Jessica was amazing to work with, she had great ideas and suggestions and took advantage of every inch of our small walk-in closet. She was so patient and accommodating, hanging in there with me, and my endless questions and changes! We could not be more thrilled. Our closet is efficient, organized and beautiful! The installers were also very impressed with the design and how well the space was used. We even ended up with room to spare, time to go shoe shopping! Looking forward to our next project!

The California Closets Experience, in my mind, is always about the customer. I listen to every client’s needs, because that is the only way I can deliver the best customer service. Once we know where we are going, it's easy to find the path.
As a Design Consultant for California Closets, the best part of my day is providing solutions for my clients that simplify their lives. It is so gratifying to help and bring a smile to their faces. When a customer sees their new storage solution and understands how their life will change for the better, their happiness is palpable.
My favorite California Closet product is the Lago collection. It has a very sophisticated look that appeals to a wide variety of people. I also like adding a punch of color by using one of our Ecoresin or Italian glass inserts.
I have worked as an interior designer and sales design consultant since 2001. California Closets is a great company to work for; it's a joy to work with such talented Design Consultants and delightful customers.
