Offering both project management and end to end construction, the husband and wife team of Kevin and Tracy Holczer are recognized for their expertise, professionalism and attention to detail. KSM Construction specializes in whole house remodels as well as renovations of older, historic and Mills Act homes. Our jobs include custom cabinetry, millwork, tile and exterior finishes in every style. With Tracy in the lead for project management and interior finishes, and Kevin on site running each job personally, as well as employing a wealth of master tradesmen and trusted suppliers, KSM Construction offers a network of time-tested reliability. We are fully licensed, bonded and insured.
We pride ourselves on communication as well as attention to every last detail. Our emphasis on a prompt response is always appreciated by our happy customers. We keep momentum moving forward at all times, bringing jobs in on time and budget. Our menu-style bid gives individual pricing for each element of the job. KSM Construction does not use allowances in the bid process, so the bid you get is the amount you pay. In construction, there can always be unforeseen conditions, but we are known for our cost-saving solutions. Barring changes by the owner, the price you start with is the price you end with.
Kevin has successfully completed permit remediation all over the greater Los Angeles Basin. If you have non-permitted space in your house, we are the team to call. We have saved homeowners tens of thousands of dollars by cutting through bureaucratic red tape (it’s Kevin’s super power!).
Kevin started out in the lathe and plaster union, Local 141, in the bay area during the summer of 1984. After moving to Los Angeles, he worked for LD Johnson Construction and then TESH Construction, as well as doing sub-contractor work for L & V Construction. In June of 2001, Kevin received his General Contractor’s license and started his own company, KSM Construction, specializing in custom remodels and the renovation of historic homes.
Tracy spent her childhood coloring between the lines of the blueprints her mom and dad brought home from their cabinet business. With a background in private banking at JP Morgan Chase, Tracy’s focus is on client service through communication and project management. She is also available to help with straightforward design and finishes.
The Holczers have lived in La Crescenta and served the foothill communities since 2001. They have partnered with homeowners, designers and architects to bring quality construction and custom renovation to the La Crescenta, La Canada, Glendale, Altadena and Pasadena areas. KSM Construction has been built on twenty-year’s worth of referrals, with clients returning for future projects time and again.
“I have been extremely impressed with their comfortable management style and attention to detail … I’ve been told it is difficult to find a builder who can meet all three key demands in the building profession: quality, budget and schedule, yet I believe Kevin handles all three with great success.”
“We have reached the point where we always call Kevin first, and rarely seek competing bids (don’t tell Kevin I said that!). Simply put, working with him has been so easy and pleasant – and he has consistently been fair about cost – that we don’t want the hassle of working with someone else.”
