It operates a call center at 3151 Cahuenga blvd. in Los Angeles which telemarkets home owners and falsely presents itself as a contractors referral agency and is owned by OFER FARKASH of SAHL Builders.

They also have a phony Website called Local which they purchased. It too is a set-up. When you enter Local in your computer it takes you to Home Remodelers Direct. It presents itself as a Contractors referral company. This is the same as the call center. It is owned and operated by OFER Farkash.  First of all a referral company cannot be a member of the NKBA. 

Their site shows them as members. Referral companies do not offer Financing or Credit Cards. Their sites shows this. You call their Telephone number and you  each the phone of their Telemarketers.

Nothing more than scorned ex-employee

AUTHOR: Michael D. Kolodzi, Esq. - (United States of America)

To all readers of this complaint: 

I am the attorney for Ofer Farkash.  Please be advised that the foregoing "complaint" is nothing more the empty sentiments of a scorned ex-employee, who wants to harm the business reputation of Mr. Farkash.   Unfortunately, in this day and age, many ex-employees and competitors resort to sites like to convey their vitriol in an effort to harm or extort their target, knowing that the report cannot be taken down.   

Indeed, a cursory review of any of the corporate records on file with the Secretary of State of California and/or the Contractor State License Board would easily disprove the allegations that Farkash "owns" these companies.   Rest assured, our office is currently involved in a defamation lawsuit against the poster of this "complaint."    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office.
