As a high-end general contractor in the greater Seattle area I have come to trust and rely on QLL for all our exterior lighting needs. My Company specializes in large scale remodels and new construction for clients that demand the best, and expect a complete level of service. QLL has become one of our most reliable and trusted subcontractors and our clients love working with them and continue to use their services long after our work is done.
My business relies 100% on our reputation and our reputation is dependent not only on our work but on our employees and our subcontractors so when we find good ones they become part of the family.
I would whole heartedly recommend QLL for any and all exterior lighting needs.
I was referred to Quality Estate Services by a local commercial lighting supply company. I figured the folks that supplied the local lighting contractors would know the most active ones to recommend. When asked the overwhelming response was Robert Hobart of Quality Estate Services, LLC. Upon contacting Robert he was very professional and personable. He came to my prpoerty and explained the many ways my home could benefit from low voltage lighting. It quickly became apparent to me that his knowledge of his profession was exceptional. I ended our first meeting by hiring Robert and giving him freedom to choose the best lighting approach for my home.
The result was astonishing. The various uses of lighting in different angles and varieties produced an effect that is like no other. I live in a "Street of Dreams" community and my home glows of beauty at night. Many of my neighbors have commented on the results of the lighting project. Since the installation of the fixtures Robert makes annual trips to our home to inspect the system and replace bulbs. He has come out on other occasions when trees have fallen and has made repairs to the lighting system. We have added some additional effects since the onset; i.e., lighting in our fountain and rock walls.
Overall, it has been a tremendous experience and we would strongly recommend their services to any home owner that is serious about increasing the appreciation of your home and the value as well. Lastly, Robert does not use low grade materials, which results in a higher bid. I suggest going with the best as its life expectancy in our harsh climates is necessary. All of our fixtures are the highest grade commercial quality construction and has held up very well. You do not want to be replacing fixtures due to low quality construction frequently.

A Letter of Recommendation for Quality Landscape Lighting
To Whom It May Concern:
Quality Landscape Lighting (QLL) installed our outdoor lighting system about seven years ago, and has been maintaining it ever since. This is not a small task, since the area they cover is about one acre. The installation was excellent, both their plan and the execution of that plan. And ongoing maintenance-which is just as important as the installation, maybe more so-continues to be excellent.
QLL has an efficient and helpful crew. Robert Hobard, the president, has always been available for consultation and advice. The QLL lighting plan greatly improves the appearance and usability of our garden at night.
My husband and I are fully satisfied with the work that QLL has done, and continues to do, for us.

I am taking the time to write because we are so pleased with our new lighting. Now that the backyard, phase II, is done we have lighting all around the house making it lovely at night and safe to walk the paths. It felt so good to know we could call you for the second half of our project based on the great job you did on the first half.
And once again, we are very pleased with the excellent job done by your crew. There was not one plant casualty and that's saying something given how bounteous our plants are and how special they are to us.
The next best part for me, a landscape designer, was having the test lights here so we could play around with positions and effects before making our final decisions. Your suggestions and advice further guided us to good decisions The result being that we have not once said to each other that we wished we had done this or that differently.
We're also impressed with the follow-up we've had. Nice job. As the saying goes, may your company live long and prosper.
I have enjoyed the services I have received during the past 10 years from Quality Estate Services at my home. They are very professional and very nice to work with. They always show up on time and complete the project on time. They have added so much beauty to my yard. I love to walk through my yard when I come home to see it looking so lovely. The work and services they perform add so much value to my home. They are excellent in knowing what needs to be done and are very helpful in offering suggestions when I want to make changes. They are extremely knowledgeable in the proper selection of plants that will work in my yard and my growing conditions. I couldn’t possibly imagine my yard without them!!!
I would highly recommend their services.
We want to thank you so very much for the work that your wonderful employees did here at our home! We were so impressed at how polite and professional they were. The young man that was out today told us that you winterize sprinkler systems and we would like to get on your calendar when we are done sprinkling to get our system blown out. Thank you again for the wonderful work.

Re: Quality Landscape Lighting
To whom it may concern:
We have worked with Quality Landscape Lighting and Robert Hobart since 2003 and have found the company exceedingly professional and creative. From the day we first met Robert Hobart of QLL, we impressed with his thorough review of our property, and his understanding of our wants, concerns and overall desires for our landscape lighting. His suggestions and ideas were patiently explained, with the final plan accomplishing all our expectations within our budget.
Our initial installation was quite large, over 45 lights in total and three transformers. The work was done with great care and little disturbance to our landscaping. We could not have been happier as the results were magnificent.
In 2007 we completed the addition of several outdoor structures among the trees on our property. We immediately called Robert to work his magic. He did not disappoint us. The design and installation was superb.
We would highly recommend Quality Landscape Lighting for everyone’s low voltage outdoor lighting needs.
