Electrical Contracting Testimonials – Residential – Commercial – Industrial – Petoskey,  Michigan

Emil, I couldn’t find a way to post my sincere thanks on your website so I decided to email you personally. Your prompt service is second to none in my book. What you did in 1 hour was admirable. You are an excellent businessman, electrician, and a gentleman. Your attention to the detail is exemplary. It was a pleasure to have you in our home. Thanks for hanging our chandelier.
Sincerely, Bob Van Poppelen

Emil is just wonderful! He’s on time, he does great work AND he cleans up after himself (a big deal for a single mother of 4 children!!!). Also, when I discovered that I didn’t have a 220 outlet for my dryer (after he had finished all the work I hired him for) he came back the next day, Saturday, and put in the plug so I could get the laundry done. I have already recommended him to friends.

I wanted to thank you…for your contribution to the Twisted Olive Cafe Project. The restaurant has been thriving since November 27 and the customers have truly appreciated the dining environment we created together.

Select Electric provides superior electrical service at a fair price.  What sets Emil apart from other workers, however, is his attention to other areas, including timeliness, cleanliness, and communication.

Emil has always been precisely on time. He takes his shoes off in the house and cleans up after himself, neither of which, unfortunately, are common practice for many service techs. Also, he takes the time to return calls, answer questions, offer ideas, conduct necessary research, and provide accurate estimates.

Further, Emil upholds a generous ‘warranty’ policy that ensures customer satisfaction beyond the completion of his work.  Above all, that should prove that Emil’s cares to do quality work.

As a result, I personally will continue to enlist Emil and Select Electric for any electrical work at my home, and give him my full endorsement.”

As a construction developer for large commercial entities, residential projects and an attorney I have became acquainted with Emil Buchbinder who is a master electrician with Select Electric in Petoskey, Michigan. He is an accomplished electrician as well as versatile in handling peripheral projects associated with electrical construction and design. His services were prompt, well done, clean and with affordable competitive pricing.

I would not hesitate to retain Emil and Select Electric for large commercial applications as well as important residential projects. Emil is organized, efficient, extremely competent, and has an excellent rapport with people of all ages. His communication skills are excellent.

I recommend the service of Select Electric Service, Emil Buchbinder. He installed an antique chandelier for me. The job was done in a neat and an efficient manner. He was on time and was pleasant to work with. I was very pleased with his work.

Select Electric came highly recommended by a friend., We had them install an off-the-grid system and it works great. Now when the power goes out, we can hook up to the generator outside and power whatever we need in the house. Great work and very reasonable!

Over the years, I’ve worked with many electrical contractors and electricians. I’d rate Emil and Select Electric up there with the best of them. Emil was pleasant to work with, his rates are fair and competitive – and he did a good job of cleaning up after himself – a must for any electrician doing residential electrical contracting.
