Nick and his guys are great. Lance and Matt, came by and installed our ceiling fan, no hitting the walls with their ladders, very clean and conscientious. Great work, installed in about an hour. I was previously advised by another contractor it would take 2-3 hours for twice the price. Lucky for me he flaked....

We were installing a light fixture in our home when something went wrong with the electricity. The microware and various other parts of the house did not have electricty. We called Nick. Between he and two other employees they spent 17.5 man-hours on this job. In the end they never found the problem and "advised the owner to install new wiring to restore power to these locations." Which is what they did. The fix probably took about 3-4 hours. Why would a professional electrician waste 10 hours troubleshooting something that would not be a cause for danger of fire? Why after 2 or 3 hours of troubleshooting didn't they advise us what could be done instead? We were billed for 15.5 hours at $65/hour (Nick threw his 2 hours in free) plus materials for a job that clearly, including the troubleshooting, could have been done in half that time. I gave them stars for their quality because when they finally did the rewire the quality was fine. Our problem is with his work ethics.

Called Nick on Memorial Day to inquire about a ceiling fan install. Received a competitive quote and called back Tuesday to schedule. Nick worked around my busy schedule and got me in by Friday. Sergio came out on time and was very friendly and professional. He even took the time to ensure that the placement of the fan was the best fit for the room. Cleaned up after his work and left me with some do-it-yourself tips. Pleased with the service and will definitely use on our next project.

Nick always answered his phone. Responded quickly for a bid. Answered all my questions. Did not promise what he could not deliver on. Provided a detailed quote within hours. Agreed to a date to perform the work. Showed up on time with a polite and professional crew and completed the job quickly and without collateral damage to my home. Source One was not the cheapest bid, but we are confident it was by far the best value. We could not ask for more, and gladly recommend his services.

We were told by both an electrician and home inspector that we had major electrical issues. When Nick from Source One Electrical came to inspect he said all we needed were some minor repairs. He charged us a tenth of what others were quoting us.

Nick set up a complex job very efficiently and coordinated the utility, inspector and all related details including stucco repair. This was an unexpected job that needed a quality solution on short notice. It was handled just as any homeowner would want. No surprises, no drama......Thank You Nick !

To start Nick (owner) answered the phone on a Sunday afternoon, was able to provide me with a quick quote, and had also helped to come up with a way to work with my schedule! Nick arrived at the time he had quoted, and was able to knock the work out quickly! He was very helpful in providing some insight on the work he was doing and I had him bid out a couple items for the next time I have him out! I would highly recommend Nick and One Source Electric!

Both Nick (owner) and Lance (lead electrician) were extremely professional and patient. After meeting Nick, I realized I didn't need to deal with any other electrician due to his outstanding people skills and professional traits. Lance did the actual work on my home and was very patient in explaining things to me. His professionalism was equally as admirable. They constitute a good team producing outstanding results.

...trust me, I looked. After a friend of mine and I bought a house, we found ourselves in need of an electrical contractor (among other things) to bring the place into the 21st century. After meeting with quite a few candidates and seeing numerous estimates we decided on Source One Electrical. Within a few days Nick had several of his guys hard at work rewiring just about every outlet and switch in the place. They found and corrected several electrical no-no's which made me feel that much more comfortable. It started with a written scope that we had drawn up for each room and it evolved with several changes along the way, but it wasn't a problem. When it was all said and done we got what we wanted, how we wanted it, and it was as close to the original estimate as we could have hoped. On top of all that, Nick is the easiest to work with. He always has a solution and even comes with recommendations for first timers such as myself. Of all the contractors we've used the past several months, Nick is hands down the best.

Super service. On time;expert skills; reasonably priced. Nick has become my sole source for electrical work. Pride of workmanship (a rare attribute these days)remains alive and well at Source One. Save yourself a lot of shopping around - call Nick first.

Had a problem with power brown-outs in my 1925 craftsman house. Called and electrician; came out within 30 min. Troubleshot issue and determined that problem was most likely with SDGE (source). SDGE finally came out after a week! They found a bad ground at the utility pole. Problem is resolved. Appreciate the honest assessment to wait until SDGE checked things out first.

Professionally and seamlessly coordinated SDGE and County Inspectors to repair and restore our main power service in a fast, efficient manner. They understood what needed to be done,went out there way to insure we were satisfied with the work that was performed and got us back in business sooner than we had expected. We certainly would use Source One again.

We've used Source One for a variety of projects around our 1925 Craftsman Bungalow. Nick installed lights, installed an outdoor outlet, updated some wonky old electrical in our house and even rewired our 1955 Airstream Travel Trailer. He's thorough, professional and honest. His prices are reasonable and his estimates are always spot on. He's good with out-dated electrical systems and old houses. His work is always done right the first time. I highly recommend Source One!

I've utilized Source One Electrical twice in the past six months and the service was outstanding on both occasions. They showed up promptly as scheduled (even a bit early) with one visit for a small job made on a holiday when I was available. They explained the problem and procured the right replacement fixtures as needed. The work was done in a timely manner and very professionally. I recommend Source One for any electrical job no matter what the size.
