About Gad Petel

Golden State Designs was founded in 2006 by Gad Petel, a second generation general contractor. They have been delivering great experiences to their customers in the Bay Area since 2014.

How did you get started in the industry?

My father started his business in LA, so I worked for him as a side gig to make money for college. It was always my side business—I was working in fashion!—but I kept getting more and more referrals until one day a client told me they wanted me to build their home, so I decided to leave my comfort zone and the rest is history.

How do you keep your stream of referrals so strong?

I look at the project and the homeowners behind it. That way I can understand exactly what they’re trying to achieve while becoming their trusted advisor, confidant, and even a friend. I’m very good at forecasting—not just the prices and process, but the finished product. I feel like I have x-ray vision to see where we might have problems before they happen. I’m very frank and forward but friendly and I think this mix works well.

Working with Gad and his team was a super pleasant experience. They are super professional and delivery work both in time and high quality. Our house came out great and even my neighbors would come and give praise about it. Both my wife and I are extremely happy with it and have recommended Gad to all my friends who are thinking about remodeling. I would more than happy to work with him in the future.
