"We had a great experience working with Tobias when he painted the exterior of our home. From the first time we met him he was polite and professional. He listened to our thoughts and ideas of what we wanted done and we valued his input on color choices. He was dependable and trustworthy and showed up every day when he said he would. He paid great attention to the details of all aspects of the job from the preparation, to protecting the surrounding cement and bushes, to the clean up. His work ethic is amazing. It's obvious that Tobias is a real artist and takes great pride in his work. Within a couple of weeks our house looked like it was new again. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a quality painter, who is reasonably priced and truly a pleasure to work with."

"I can't say enough good things about Tobias. If you are looking for a painter, Tobias is the one you want to use.
I live in California and I was trying to find a reputable painter in Ashland to paint my Mom's new Mountain Meadows home in Ashland, Oregon. I found Tobias' web-site and called him for a quote over the phone. He was very nice, professional and expedient in his response and quote. I liked him immediately and called some of his references who gave him a glowing review. I felt very comfortable giving him the job without ever meeting him.
When I arrived in Ashland, a few days after he completed the job, I was thrilled! Tobias's work is the best I have ever seen. He was very neat, thorough and a very skilled painter. Even the Mountain Meadows personnel were impressed with him. Some of them poked their heads in the home as he was painting it and they have now added him to their referral list.
If you have found this web-site, look no further - Tobias is the only painter you will want to use."

"I wish all my business dealings were handled as easily, professionally and expertly as was our experience with Tobias Cook Painting. From his initial bid to paint our house - which was the most favorable - to the finishing painting touches and details, our dealings with Tobias were nothing less than stellar. In addition he and his crew always worked quietly and efficiently, respecting the fact that they were daily in and around "our space". I highly recommend Tobias and will not hesitate to call upon his services in the future."
~Bob Evoniuk, Tina Bolling - Ashland, OR

''As a REALTOR, I’m also looking for highly skilled, moderately priced contractors to help my clients get their homes ready to sell. When I needed to have a painting contractor spiff up a small condo, I was referred to Tobias Cook Painting. I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER. He was efficient, timely, reasonably priced and did a great job. He followed up as promised, made sure the job was done right, and was very pleasant to work with. I’d recommend him to anyone wanting good quality painting at a fair price with a smile!''
~Rick Harris, Coldwell Banker Pro West Ashland
''Toby's work was excellent and very professional. He was also patient in working with us to determine what our real needs were and exactly how much we wanted to have done.''
"...Entirely professional, they exhibited unbelievable dedication to precision. They communicated thoroughly and thoughtfully about progress, little decisions which needed to be made along the way, entirely going “the extra mile” to assure that the job fully met my expectations – and in the process entirely exceeded them. Their pricing is very fair – and their work is exceptional!"
~Ron Kramer Ashland, OR
"Tobias was amazing to work with! He is a very competent, courteous, meticulous, detail oriented painter.

~Rick Lindemann, LINDEMANN DESIGN LLC
"Tobias did a great job painting our master bedroom and bathroom. He was very helpful in picking out colors. He went the extra step to clean up the messy paint job that I had done before! He was very willing to work with me for the price that I was looking for. We will call him back for our next painting adventure."
~Amber Medford, Oregon
''When we planned to paint our house we considered painting it ourselves or finding someone to do it cheap. We asked Toby to come by to price the job and he brought sound advice on color combinations and recommended the use of quality paint. Toby transformed our house from plain pale walls to a uplifting enviorment. The quality of work performed by Toby is outstanding. A quality paint job using the right color combinations adds great value to your home. We strongly recommend that if you plan to paint your home that you call Toby for advice first.''
~Tim and Ellen
"Tobias did an amazing job for us. Our house looks like new! He was reasonable in his price, reliable, trustworthy, dependable, and great to work with. We would highly recommend Tobias."
~Mark and Jini Danis Ashland, OR
"Tobias Cook made our dreams a reality with a custom Dr. Seuss mural for our nursery. Tobias took our ideas and transformed them with his experience and expertise to create something truly magical. The illustrations of Dr. Seuss have come alive and hopefully will provide a lifetime of memories for our soon to be born son."
~Eric & Carissa Dames Medford, OR
"Tobias Cook is a true craftsman - an all too rare breed. His attention to detail, use of high quality materials and professionalism is plainly evident in the paint job he did on the exterior of my house. My father was a house painter and trained me, so I have some experience and can judge these things. You won't go wrong with Tobias!"
~John Wimberley Ashland, OR
"Tobias did some interior painting for me and I must say that I was very impressed with his work. Tobias was very reliable, professional and neat. Between the two of us we made the perfect decision for colors. I would highly recommend Tobias for your next project!"
~ Joan Hall Central Point, OR
"Tobias, I wanted to tell you what a great job you did. Everything looks AMAZING! We are very pleased with your work and appreciate your time and flexibility. Please feel free to give any prospective customers my phone number and/or email as a reference. We will definately use you for our future projects! Thanks again!"
~J M, Medford
"Tobias painted the exterior of our home with the eyes, hands and mind of an artist. We are so happy with his work that we will use him again on an interior painting project. We liked him from our first introductions when he came to our place to look it over. His estimate came back timely and was fairly priced. He remained true to his word throughout the project and did his work quietly and quickly; cleaning up at the end of each day. He worked alone, which we also liked. The end result of our newly-painted home is stunning. We are very happy with Tobias' work and work ethic. You can't go wrong if you hire Tobias as your painter!"
~Paul and Barbara Mayr Medford, Oregon
"We were very pleased with Tobias' work and felt very comfortable leaving him unsupervised in the house with our valuables. We can't say that about most of the contractors we've worked with. It is obvious that Tobias takes pride in his work and is very conscientious. We are going to have Tobias come back soon for our other painting projects. We were truly happy with his work and working with him was a pleasure."
~The Wilsons Eagle Point, Oregon
"If you want a wonderful, positive experience having your house painted, hire Tobias Cook! His work is outstanding. From the beginning, Tobias was extremely easy to work with. From choosing paint, to determining finish touches, he attends to every detail. Your house will look beautiful. Tobias Cook was everything in a painter that we could have wanted. He did all of the work himself, he was meticulous, easy to communicate with, and took pride in a job well done. We are not merely satisfied with his work; we are thrilled!"
~Rod and Brenda Paustian Ashland, Oregon
"We had Tobias paint a home we just bought. Not only did he do an excellent job painting, he was super easy to work with. He was flexible with our timing because we didn't close on the original intended date. He worked late many days to try to get as much work done before the movers moved our things in, and he made sure he got the job finished in a timely manner. He did an excellent job painting and was very reasonably priced. He finished the job in a timely manner and was flexible around our needs. I'm not sure what else you could possibly ask for."
~Jennifer Medford, Oregon
"I would recommend Tobias Cook to anybody. He is a painter who is able to do an excellent job at a reasonable price."
~Mike Metzger Ashland, Oregon
'Tobias is our painter for life. When we were looking for estimates, Tobias spent a great deal of time with us and our humble 1200 sf home. He certainly was not the lowest bidder and we really had to weigh our options. I would hire him again in an instant. Tobias spent more time on our house prepping for paint than he did actually painting our house... and it needed every minute of it. He removed all of the mold (and we had a lot), sealed every seam (and we have a lot) and even painted our dog step. His pride and skill in his craft were quickly evident and reaffirmed our decision to hire him. I wish more craftsman displayed the enthusiasm and attention to detail that Tobias does."
~Rich and Jamie Ashland, OR
"Initially it was difficult to choose a painter, not knowing a lot about house painting myself. I chose Tobias because he is very knowledgeable. He paid great attention to detail and repaired areas that needed it. He is a great communicator, very timely and easy to work with. He was very conscientious and careful around the plants and bushes. He has a professional attitude and is great at cleaning the job up day to day.
I recommend Tobias to anyone desiring a high quality painting job."
~J Para Ashland, Oregon
"We had an excellent experience with Tobias painting a 10-year old home, both interior and exterior. The exterior had significant peeling and fading, while the interior had seen some "hard living." Tobias did a professional job of prepping (washing, masking, minor repairs), painting with good clean lines, and cleanup with no remaining paint spots or problems. We highly recommend him!!"
John and Priscila Ashland, Oregon
"Our neighbors recommended Tobias to us, and we're very grateful they did. He is professional, highly skilled, has a remarkable eye for detail, and is very pleasant to be around. Also, his prices are surprisingly reasonable considering the quality of his work. I completely recommend him."
~Ted Ashland, Oregon
"Dear Tobias, Thanks for doing such a good job painting my kitchen, dining room, living room and two bathrooms. They look great! I was impressed at how quickly you worked and how well you covered not only the exposed furniture, but every inch of the floors. Also after you finished, all the debris and floor covering were taken away and all the heavy items you moved were put back in place. Thanks again for a great job!"
~Loretta Lisowski Ashland, Oregon
"We hired Tobias to paint our web design studio initially just one solid color with trim. After he did such a perfect and professional job we hired him again to do a small custom mural of our logo on one of the studio walls. He offered his expert opinion on selecting the right shade of paint and size for the logo (we wanted it subtle but captivating). When we saw the finished product we were thrilled! It was exactly what we had envisioned. Not only did Tobias do a fantastic job he was able to accommodate our schedule and his rates were competitive. We highly recommend him for any and all painting jobs!"
~Jenica & Lars Faye Ashland, Oregon
"I recently moved into the area from out of state and needed a painter for my new home. My realtor recommended Tobias Cook. I was under an aggressive time crunch to get my painting done and be able to move into my home prior to the moving truck arriving. Mr. Cook worked within my schedule to accommodate my needs even though he was extremely busy. Mr. Cook and his crew worked around the clock. They were always on time and very professional. The paint job was first class. I would highly recommend Tobias Cook Painting to anyone."
~Patty Hanway Medford, Oregon
"Tobias and his employee Andy did a terrific job painting my house. I dreaded doing it, because it always seems daunting to make major changes. However, they slipped in, very efficiently hydro-cleaned the entire area, taped boarded things up, and then I was blissfully unaware of them for 3 days! (Well, not entirely---I did ask them to witness my signature to my Advance Directive, also warning them that I had no plans to go soon)! I was so pleased and unaffected by this efficient and clean job that I will have Tobias back when it is time to do the interior. He is a good businessman, and he stand by his work."
~Mary Maher Ashland, Oregon
"We have used Tobias for a number of years to paint nearly every room inside our home, our garage, and large portions of the exterior. His painting skills are excellent and he is very meticulous with the detail work. We highly recommend him as a painter and an all-around nice guy."
~Jean and Chic Francis Ashland, Oregon
"Tobias and his associate Andy painted the interior of our two-story craftsman and we couldn't be happier with the result. We were impressed with the preparation prior to painting--making sure the surfaces were ready for paint, masking, moving furniture carefully out of rooms, and covering floors and any furniture that remained in the room. Their attention to detail is admirable. Lines are straight, coverage is superb, and cleanup is quick and thorough. And everything was put back in its place. They are a delight to work with, happy to answer questions, eager to please. The result: a beautiful new interior accomplished at a moderate cost. We highly recommend Tobias' company."
~Jim Flint and Karen Spence, Ashland Oregon
"I found Tobias to be very helpful with choosing colors for the exterior of our house. His recommendations for the right color yellow made such a huge decision simple and I dont regret choosing a bold color. Everything went smoothly working with Tobias and I trusted him completely to paint our house while we were gone on vacation."
~Vanessa Hajje, Ashland Oregon
"We completely agree with the other testimonials on this page. Tobias painted the exterior of our house and touched up the interior after we purchased it. We had several nice, very competent workmen working with us at that time, but for value, workmanship, and ease of communicating Tobias stood out among the rest. Can't recommend him highly enough."
~Bill and Nancy Grove, Ashland Oregon
"Tobias was meticulous in both the preparation for painting (covering floors, moving furniture, taping woodwork, etc.) and in the painting itself. He obviously takes great pride in his work. The price was fair, the paint job excellent and he was a delight to deal with. I would certainly choose him again for interior or exterior painting."
~Deb Hollens, Ashland Oregon
