What Our Customers Say…

“John is the “bathroom whisperer” – an exacting craftsman who pays attention to detail and provides clear explanations.”

— Janice M., Chevy Chase


John did an excellent job in rebuilding my shower stall that was leaking into the drywall. He gave us a good explanation of the underlying problems and a precise estimate broken down by materials and labor. He stuck to the estimate despite a few unforeseen problems, which he easily handled. The work was done on time, neatly, and — most importantly — with high quality and attention to detail. John is an expert craftsman and was great about keeping me informed every step of the way. He also was happy to follow up (at no cost) and swap the showerhead when the initial one was not to my liking. John definitely lived up to his many Checkbook recommendations. If we have future kitchen or bathroom remodeling projects, John will be our first call.


We hired John Babyak and his crew (Steve and Matthew) to remodel our master bathroom this winter. We had a leak in the drywall of our shower stall, as well as carpenter ants (which John discovered and eliminated!!) His craftsmanship is excellent–taking pride in his work and his attention to detail, as well as keeping us apprised of everything as the project proceeded. We asked for ideas about decorative tile in the shower and he came up with a beautiful design which we love. He also gave us great recommendations on where to shop for tile, vanity and medicine cabinet. He has a great work ethic–was always here when he said he would be, carefully prepared the “work area,” covering our carpet and taking great care to leave everything clean, neat and tidy each day before leaving. He gave us a project schedule, which he adhered to. When we made a change in the plan by deciding mid-way through the project to order a new vanity/sink and medicine cabinet, which would take 4 to 6 weeks to be delivered, he graciously accommodated us by re-installing the old vanity/sink, so that we had a fully functioning bathroom, and then picked up the new items, as soon as they were delivered to the store, and came out to install them. We appreciated his responding very promptly to calls, texts, emails…whenever we had a question…even on weekends! Overall–a great experience! John and his crew are courteous, friendly and talented craftsmen. We love our new bathroom and will certainly call Realty Resurrections again for our next project!


I realize most people only write when they have a complaint. Don’t worry — I’m writing with no complaints whatsoever, rather I’m writing to let you know how much we like our bathroom. Everything works, everything is beautiful, and you were both on schedule and on budget.

“Realty Resurrections  did a complete remodeling of two bathrooms and one powder room for me. The job was well planned, the schedule and budget were maintained, and the workmanship was very professional in all respects.  John Babyak, the owner, sets high standards for himself and those who work for him. It was most gratifying to do business with John who is a sincere, honest, and talented person.”

“John Babyak of Realty Resurrections is fantastic to work with. I called him on the strength of all the comments made about him in other ratings and I was not sorry. The total renovation was all done in two weeks. I love looking at my new bathroom every time I go in there. I can’t recommend John enough.”

— J. Mangin, Silver Spring, MD

“I selected Realty Resurrections for remodeling 2 bathrooms after looking at many other companies and I was 100% satisfied with the results. John Babyak the owner is a perfectionist and expects nothing but the best from the people who work for him. The result was an outstanding job with no mess left to clean and all of this done in the time frame predicted. John worked with one person, Steve, who also did an excellent job; they both were very polite, pleasant, and always on time. Special attention was given to every little detail; you should see the tile work, great. When it was time for the plumbing or electricity, John had his own plumber and electrician do the job so I was certain that all the work was done by experienced workers. Realty Resurrection is definitely a top notch company and I will definitely recommend them to all my friends. I plan to remodel my kitchen in the near future and John will be the contractor I will call for sure.”

“Excellent remodel of our old bathroom. Incredibly pleasant two-man team. Careful tile work, excellent installation of fixtures. We had the bathtub replaced as well. The guys were punctual, cleaned up daily, and done on time. We could trust them with ensuring that our dog didn’t run away — a big concern for us when dealing with contractors and propped-open doors. Overall, an excellent company and experts on all type of bathroom remodels.”
