  • I had several opportunities to work with Rifka on Infrastructure projects and she has the special talent to pull the details out of the projects, asking the right questions and researching the details properly. This has eliminated costly errors that typically occur in estimates performed in haste. I would definitely recommend Rifka for bidding and I continue to collaborate with her on projects after 15 years.

  • Rifka is a valuable resource for our company when we are bidding large site development projects. Her takeoffs are always accurate, well formatted. Most importantly the takeoffs were completed on time and for very reasonable prices.
    I highly recommend her !!!
