Dear future custom home owner,

Assisted in the design and/or selection during every facet of construction including all selection and installation of all doors and windows, HVAC units, lighting fixtures, trim and moldings, custom cabinetry, granite, wall and trim finishing, flooring, indoor/outdoor railings, window treatments, blinds and drapes, door, window and plumbing hardware, furniture and appliance selections, Crestron home automation system, audio and video systems, security system, exterior facade selections, pool installation, landscaping, outdoor hardscape selection, etc…

8. Made on-site “live” design revisions to achieve desired look throughout all stages of build


Needless to say, we cannot say enough about Tom Trill or his organization, Exclusive Homes, LLC. Simply put, they are the best of the best. His attention to detail is unsurpassed. His workmanship is impeccable. His eyes are gifted. His judgment is sound and his opinions matter. Tom is highly respected by his peers and his work speaks for itself. He knows when colors and designs are harmonious and when they’re not. He has an extraordinary ability to accentuate details and to carry themes and patterns throughout the construct. He knows exactly how to achieve the look we’re looking for and he will carry that motif seamlessly from room to room. He knows how and when to make things “pop” and when to be subtle. He knows how to highlight and showcase the focal points in each room. His ability to visualize the final product and conceptualize in 3D, when it’s still only an imaginary thought, is surreal. His design of built-ins and room moldings is beyond compare. His work is unfathomable and beyond description. It simply has to be visualized in person as it’s indescribable. Words simply do not do it justice.


It is without hesitation that we would like to strongly endorse Mr. Tom Trill and his organization, Exclusive Homes, LLC in the field of Custom Home Design, Build and Interior Design. We simply cannot say enough about him and the quality of his workmanship.


Now to you, Tom, with sincere gratitude for all that you have done for us, and for the friendships that we have forged along the way with you and your beautiful wife, Wanda, we are forever indebted to you.


Your great friends,


Rob and Kim Kayal


Franklin Lakes, NJ
