"When I first met Brian Zimmerman, my insurance claim had not yet been settled on my home in Summerland that had burned down due to an electrical fire. He patiently waited while I worked things out and promised me he would stick with me, and build back my house. He kept his promise and more. Early on, he introduced me to Marion Gregston, who became my designer and muse for every detail of the project. I now have a beautiful custom home, flawless in every detail and the quality of the build, and the craftsmanship stuns everyone who comes here. But just as important, is the way Brian and Barbi Zimmerman conduct business. We encountered almost no problems during the build. But with the few inevitable snags that did come up, in a ground up build, Brian immediately stepped in to troubleshoot and solve any problems. He was professional, responsive and courteous to the end. Their integrity, transparency and loyalty to me as a client was truly inspirational. I look back now, and can only be grateful that I took the step to rebuild, and that I met the Zimmerman’s. I now not only have a beautiful home, but I have my life back. Thank you Brian and Barbi!“

"Brian Zimmerman built the house I purchased two years ago. There were some issues that needed to be fixed that were not his fault, but resulted from negligence on the previous owner. He came out multiple times during torrential rainstorms to make sure the property was protected, and he followed up until the job was completely finished. Zimmerman & Co is a top notch company run by the owner Brian Zimmerman. I cannot say enough about his integrity and follow through. If I could give him 10 stars I would. Thank you Brian for all of your hard work! I am very happy with the results!"


"Loved working with Brian. His work is first rate and he knows what needs to be done, even if you don’t.”

“Zimmerman & Co. was a pleasure to work with! I recently completed a bathroom remodel with their team that turned out superb. Their workmanship is of great quality and their level of detail evident. Brian Zimmerman truly has the eye of an architect which made the project flow with ease, allowing my vision to truly be accomplished. Bravo to the Zimmerman team!
Thank you for producing such quality craftsmanship!”

“Brian Zimmerman was recommended by our architect Nigel Gommersall of Hochhauser Blatter Architecture. Brian did a great job in a timely manner and he was able to have his Subs come as soon as they were due to complete their jobs. His billing was clearly detailed. Brian was on time and had a lot of good ideas. We would recommend him to anybody wanting to build or remodel a house. He has a good team.”


"I have worked with Brian on several projects in the past. Recently, I have worked on an extensive remodel with him on the Mesa. The experience was great. Brian stays well ahead of the project details, and is very organized. His budget and timelines were accurate and well thought out. I am looking forward to starting my next project with Brian shortly."

“Brian Zimmerman did a really nice job on our total remodel. He was a pleasure to work with and his attitude was always positive. He consistently figured out tough issues while keeping our budget in mind.  As an interior designer, I am used to designing challenging and expensive details in high end homes. Brian was able and willing to put in the effort to do things differently than the typical, always sensitive to what I was trying to achieve, and willing to work overtime to get the project done on time. I am so pleased that we were able to turn a very old home into a small treasure with quality finishes, all while I lived out of state. Thank you Brian.”

"My wife and I have always wanted to build a house from scratch, so after finding a lot that met our specs, hiring an architect, and going through the permit process, we set out to find a contractor to build it. We interviewed several builders in town and looked at what they had built, finally selecting Brian. We are so happy with our choice. Brian made numerous suggestions during the construction, all of which enhanced the final product. The subs that work for him are all first class and enjoy working for him. At the end of the work day they would clean the area and leave it spotless, the sign of a true professional. We love the attention to detail that is exhibited in everything from the window moldings to the furnace vents and return air register. If we ever decide to build another house, the first call we would make would be to Brian.”

“We had the pleasure of working with the Zimmerman team on a beautiful beachside Project in Santa Barbara. The teardown/ new construction project ran smoothly and efficiently from start to finish with a positive, can-do attitude from Brian. The end product speaks for itself... a true beachside beauty! We highly recommend Zimmerman & Co. to anyone looking for a quality general contractor and team. Thank You Brian Zimmerman, a native to Santa Barbara that truly cares about his community, a talented and honest professional, and his wonderful team! We look forward to collaborating on future projects with the Zimmerman Team.”

—Interior Designer, Debra Lynn Henno

“We hired Brian Zimmerman to add a 2nd floor master suite above an existing garage, BBQ island, and to enclose a patio to create a 2 story family room with atrium skylight. Brian was very active with all aspects of the project and made outstanding suggestions every step of the way. He and his crew focused on the details to get the job done right the first time. What was refreshing throughout the project is that Brian kept me well informed of progress and challenges. He was aware of our tight deadline and did everything possible, including jumping through a few hoops to get the job done on time.”
