What people are saying about Charmed Painting on Yelp
All my life, I’m in my 60’s, I’ve worked for and owned small businesses as well as having been project manager for a well developed residential non-profit group in Berkeley. In all that time I’ve seldom encountered a contractor with the outstanding positive qualities of Eddie Ortega and Charmed Painting. I’ve worked with plumbers, roofers, gardeners, electricians, carpenters, painters, etc. He’s the best!
He’s smart, honest, on time, treats his employees kindly, and his pricing is absolutely fair.As a matter of fact I offered him more at the job’s completion because I felt his work warranted it. Quality? excellent. Clean up? perfect. Communication? straight forward and receptive. Ours was a relatively small job painting three rooms in our apartment. He was 100% there in every detail. He answers his emails, he returns his phone calls. He used zero VOC paint without me even having to ask. He caulked areas I wouldn’t have thought of.He was considerate about our lifestyle and use of rooms during the job. We did have to wait a while for him to be available but he told us that from the beginning.
In short he takes pride in his work. In an ideal world this wouldn’t be a big deal, it would be standard. However in our world today it’s unusual and delightful. Thank you Eddie.

Eddie and his crew did a great job painting the exterior of our house. he had good advice for colors and was willing to go above and beyond what most painters would do. I constantly hear people biking or walking by talking about how good our house looks or how they want a house like that one day. It’s really nice to know that our house went from dud to stud and people notice. We are definitely going to have Eddie help us on projects in the future. He will be our first choice.
Also, we got quotes from 3 different painting companies. One was just really expensive (we found on yelp). One was a good friend who quoted us the “friend rate,” which was still over $1k more expensive than Eddie’s quote. Prices are great. Work was great. Definitely call Charmed Painting for your home needs, indoor or outdoor.

The interior of our craftsman home needed a lot of attention, i.e., this was not a simple paint job. The plaster walls and ceilings were filled with holes and cracks, as well as shoddy old patch jobs. We talked to several painters. Eddie gave us a competitive (albeit not the lowest) bid. But he understood what we wanted done, and took the time to explain how he would approach some of the more challenging tasks (like patching a textured surface).
In the end, Eddie and his team exceeded our expectations. They protected our wood floors. They cleaned up each evening. And, most importantly, the finished product looks great. I have nothing but good things to say about Eddie and his team, and look forward to working with them again soon.

Charmed Painting painted two rooms in my house. The attention to detail was fantastic. Lines were clean and walls were painted nicely. Eddie was quick and easy to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
