Our customer testimonials

and our responseS


"Wilcox Electric was responsive and professional from beginning to end of the project. The only surprise was that Abdel and his crew of apprentices went the extra mile in every respect. They were punctual and professional. They kept me apprised of challenges encountered in my 1923 home, and they cleaned up each day they were here. The fees were reasonable, especially considering the service. Absolutely would hire them again and recommend Wilcox highly." - TH, Angi

"On a chilly winter day, this review warms my heart! Thank you for taking the time to post these kind words. I have passed along your comments to Abdel, the apprentices (Mike and Ace) and to my husband Steve. It’s a nice boost for us all, thank you again!"




"Steve Smith did a great job. We didn't know if the current light could be fixed or replaced. We had a replacement available. Mr. Smith figured out how to fix the current light and saved us a bundle 'cause we can return the replacement. A simple solution done quickly and efficiently. We will always ask for Mr. Smith for any future electrical work." - CH, Angi

"Thank you for the review. Steve Smith has the most loyal followers! He is a meticulous electrician and genuinely enjoys helping our customers. That is a great combination, and we are fortunate to have Steve work with us."




"Steve Smith came out and fixed up some workmanship issues with my garage wiring and subpanel. He was excellent! Punctual - he was early and called ahead. Great communication - he explained all the issues and the work he did to correct it. He neatened everything up, tightened everything, and made it safe. When I explained another issue, he immediately took care of that as well. Good contractors in DC are hard to find and Wilcox sent an amazing electrician. I highly recommend Steve Smith's work and Wilcox Electric generally." - JA, Angi

"Thank you for the review! Steve Smith is such a well-rounded electrician. He is meticulous with his work and enjoys serving our customers. At Wilcox, we often say that technical competency is only half of what we need in our field electricians. They also need to have integrity and be personable. Steve fulfills those requirements and more."




"Eddie and “Ace” did a fabulous job! Eddie is the best electrician we have ever worked with and this team is amazing. From now on we will only work with Wilcox on all things electrical, and will always ask for Eddie and “Ace.” Super excellent work and workers. Thanks, Wilcox!!!" - JK, Angi

Tracy's Response:

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your enthusiasm is really appreciated. Eddie is a senior electrician who has a wealth of electrical knowledge. My husband, Steve Wilcox, speaks very highly of Eddie's electrical knowledge. Ace is a relatively new employee who is technically astute and mature. He is a "good catch" and we are delighted to have him in our company."




"In terms of how did it go well out of 1 to 10 it was a firm 10. The first technician that came out did an analysis of our game plan, his name is Dale. He was kind courteous and made me laugh! Melas Who actually came and installed the doorbell was again kind courteous and very thoughtful! So many times we’ve been disappointed with things like this and I am just so happy to say that all said and done I would hire them for anything! I also have to say that the woman who help me with the scheduling was very accommodating and kind and made me feel like I was part of the Wilcox family! We always do 3 to 4 estimates before hiring for the job and Wilcox was a plus and every criteria that we usually do when looking for a contractor. Definitely worth them again!" - JF, Angi
