"René installed a projector and a webcam for our conference room. We had 20 people coming on Friday and he got everything done on time. He was very flexible but his installation was very professional."

"René is an expert electrician. He has worked for me for many years on jobs large and small. He is conscientious and knowledgeable. He will do the needed research for any and every aspect of lighting project. He communicates well and has a great sense of humor! His rates seem reasonable as well."

"We gutted our house in El Cerrito and added a Lutron system to control all the lights. I believe the referral for René came through Laner Lights in Richmond.  René installed our system, and did some tricky installation work.  Our general contractor, who as a rule dislikes everyone else's work, spoke warmly about the attention René brought to every aspect of the project - which is extremely high praise.  We are planning to add Lutron shades, and also modify some additional lighting, and I can't imagine working with anyone other than René."

"René did a great job both in my old house and in my yoga studio. Swiss precision and timing!"

"I highly recommend René Schaub, who provided excellent electrical services for our house. He showed up for our appointment on time, gave us a cost estimate and upon approval returned a few days later to complete the job. René is extremely personable and easy to work with. We had him do some basic electrical work, but will have him back when we are ready to do some more advance things in terms of lighting design etc. He offers some very cool services!"

"René has a great business and he runs it with his extensive knowledge of lighting and controls.  If you need a complicated job done right, or a simple job done well, AE is the company for you."

"René is awesome. He knows his stuff, and he also knows who else you need to solve complicated problems (like programming automated lights, fixing built-in stereos, etc.) He is extraordinarily detailed-oriented, prompt, efficient, and follows up until the problem is solved. My only worry in writing this review is that he will get too much business, and I'll have a harder time scheduling him."

"I am the owner of Decade Construction a award winning Piedmont contractor. I have been in the business since 1993 and have gone through 20 electricians. René is hands down the best. His knowledge about leds and current lighting and his honesty and more then competitive pricing make my company look awesome. Thanks for all the great work!"

"If you want to see René's eyes light up like a kid in a toy store, ask him about integrating your lighting with your home entertainment center and your motorized window shades and your security system, all under a single, programmable control panel or remote. That's when you'll see that René's work is also his play. That's a beautiful thing in a tradesman!"

"René is a knowledgable and excellent electrician.  He was able to diagnose an electrical plug problem I had in my clinic and remedy the problem quickly and safely.  Now I have more sockets to use and eliminate the extension cords.  He also found that a lighting fixture was the problem vs a light switch problem.  He upgraded the fixture and the light now uses less electricity and we get more light from one tube compared to two in the past.  I highly recommend him for regular electrical repairs as well as upgrading an entire home or office with a system that allows you to select combinations of lights -- all at the touch of one button."

"Highly competent electrician - corrected mistakes other electrician had made.  Did the work perfectly and at a reasonable rate. Will definitely use him again.  Plus he's a pleasure to work with."
