His grasp of all aspects of complex construction techniques is second to none, and Tom is blessed with the ability to intelligently convey all aspects of complicated and difficult construction situations, passing the information in concise, easy to understand to others without the knowledge, expertise or background, always in a polite, professional, dead on summary.

“Tom Koester was hired as our General Contractor following a fire at our home in 2008. He oversaw the re-construction of our house and construction of a basement/storage area. We were 100% satisfied with his work. He is a businessman with the highest level of integrity who delivers time and time again. He is reliable, and trustworthy. Work and oversight of projects are of the highest caliber; very customer-oriented, friendly and personable. Tom is now in another line of work helping individuals to secure their benefits from insurance companies. His knowledge of insurance and construction; combined with his outstanding personal qualities make him a top professional in whatever position he chooses. I would gladly hire him again should the need arise, and recommend him to my closest friends and associates with the knowledge that their satisfaction would be his highest priority.”

“My husband and I met Tom after our house was destroyed by a fire. We were devastated and did not know where to begin. Yet, before we knew it, Tom appeared on site and immediately relieved our anxiety. He was a wealth of knowledge due to his extensive experience with home building, estimating, and his work and connections with numerous insurance companies. He promised to be prompt and by the very next day he had a very detailed estimate. We had contacted other companies and decided to work with Tom. It was an easy choice since Tom is so organized, professional, friendly, and personable. He also has a very peaceful and calming demeanor which was crucial for us at the time. Our house restoration was complicated since the insurance company refused to cover the whole cost of repair. We even had to involve legal counsel. Nevertheless, with Tom’s help we were able to get our home repaired completely. Tom went beyond his scope of work and did an extraordinary job not only with the estimate but as our main Contractor. The finished product was so much better than we ever imagined. Tom was meticulously thorough and everything he did was high quality. He is a man of exceptional integrity, and high standards. It was a true pleasure working with him. We did not only get a new home but a new life long friend as well. My husband and I most highly recommend him and his business without any reservations. Please contact me if you would like further information or photos.”
“Tom is one of the most knowledgeable estimators that I have ever met. His experience in construction and the different estimating programs are superior. We work with Accurate Estimates because they are quite simply the most accurate and professional in the business.”
“As a Restoration Branch Manager and long standing professional estimator/project manager myself, I found Tom and his group at the highest level of professionalism. Working with Tom, I found out how much I had to learn and he was very helpful working through all the details of a large hotel fire. I continue to keep in touch and would recommend Accurate Estimates, Inc. to all my clientele and to whoever reads this message”
Senior Estimator/Project Manager
“I met Tom Koester under the unfortunate circumstance of a major fire loss (my house caught on fire as a result of negligence by a renter who lived there at the time of the loss), however, I was fortunate to have entrusted upon him the task of representing my case to my insurer. Tom was very diligent in taking full account of my loss. He meticulously and accurately documented and assessed every aspect of the house unique construction. My insurer’s large loss adjuster assessed my loss at less than half of what Tom’s estimate concluded. Tom argued his position and eventually my insurer conceded and paid my full policy limit on my various coverages (Dwelling, Code Upgrade, Other Structure and various other coverages).
I liked Tom from the very first time we spoke on the phone, and even more so after we met. His calm, reassuring voice was of great comfort under those difficult circumstances. Tom is a not only a highly experienced professional, but also a great individual. His wisdom, perspective and life experiences put him in a category of his own and he’s a cut above the rest. I’m glad I didn’t go to battle with my insurer alone. Tom’s help was simply invaluable in that situation and am eternally grateful for what he’s done for me.”

“Julie and I had a water heater leak at our cabin in Greeley Hill that saturated our laundry room and kitchen area. Through Tom’s efforts, expert knowledge and skills, he worked with the insurance adjuster and ensured we got the full benefit of our insurance. In addition, he worked with us to re-design our kitchen and gave us a much more practical layout and in the end, a much more beautiful kitchen. Thanks Tom!”
