Contractor Reviews & Testimonials
To whom it will concern
Our months of seeking a license before we were introduced to API were full of excessive delays, a huge dose of unknowing, frustration, and even anger, but mostly it was full of expending excessive amounts of time and getting nowhere!
We were referred to API. We didnít know there were firms that professionally helped secure state and county licenses.
Our experience was exemplary! Everyone who worked with us specialized in one area of the licensing process. Each spoke in everyday language about what had to be done, and what we had to do in each step. They frequently checked with us and others involved to see that tasks were being accomplished. Most importantly was their discipline of returning calls, and never being frustrated when our calls were just us checking to see if everything was going as scheduled. Each person was always patient, reassuring, knowledgeable of our status, and were totally focused on us during each call. They listened!
We are now the recipient of a Florida Professional License. Its arrival was wildly celebrated! We are indebted to our friends at API and recommend them without a single reservation!

I wanted to say thank you, I'm really grateful for your service and advices... Anthony was great also, in less that a minute i had my approval.
Good morning Dawn,
I am writing to thank you for all your help regarding the application. The board mentioned that the new application was perfect and that all the proof was there. They approved me without having to ask me any questions thanks to you and to Anthony. I will be looking forward to working with you again when I start the application to upgrade from B to A.

A big thank you to you and your wonderful team!
My husband's CBC license posted online this morning and we are thrilled!
Sometimes in all of the hustle and bustle of our everyday work, it is easy to lose sight of the big impact you make in people's lives. This license is a life changer for us and we are so grateful that you got it done so fast! This is the 5th license I have worked on with your company. And even though the process can be stressful, your competence, fast service and friendliness have made it a pleasure!
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!

Ladies and gentlemen:
I am proud to report that I attended the Florida Electrical Contractors' Board Meeting this past Thursday, and I was approved for my Florida Unlimited Electrical License. This has been a career goal for me for a long time, and this has been a rewarding journey.
More importantly, this achievement would not have been possible without each of your contributions along the way. That is to say that I learned a long time ago that there are three things that a person will never get back in life: time, unkind words, and missed opportunities. To the contrary, I want to acknowledge that each of you offered your time, a kind word, and took the opportunity to make a contribution toward my success. Therefore, I want to take my time to say a kind word and use this opportunity to recognize the people who made this possible.
Please accept this email as my immediate recognition to each of your contributions, and I thank each of you for all that you have given.
With highest respects,
Roger L. Bennett, Jr.
I want to personally thank you and your staff for an outstanding job in the preparation

Thank you all very much.

Good moring Dawn,
Thank you very much for your assistance with the license scope of work clarification that you help me with recently. The Chief of Electrical did approve our permit request and we were able to pickup the permit and proceed with our project.
While I know that we were 100% correct it was still a tremendous process to endure. Please accept my gratitude for your help in this matter. I am truly thankful for the support that you gave us and in knowing we have someone in our corner.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Carol P. and everyone at API processing for their hard work and commitment in helping me achieve my dream of becoming a Certified Electrical contractor. My company, American Pride Electric, has been in business only a few months but already I have discovered the peace of mind that comes with ownership. I would not have been able to do this without the professional, courteous, and dedicated people over at API Processing. Everyone there including Carol, Kathy and Dawn (Iím sure that I forgot some more names) were always polite and very willing to help with all my question and needs. I can be very demanding at times and impatient, but everyone at API never showed anything but professionalism at all times. Thank you again for all your help and I will forever refer all friends and acquaintances considering a Contracting business to API Processing. Thank You!
Santiago C. Arredondo Ė American Pride Electric, LLC
Words canít even explain how thankful we are for your hard work. On behalf of both Daniel and I thank you so much! If we ever know of anyone needing your services, we will highly recommend you. Thanks Carol
Susi Husty, Empowered Global Inc
Thank you all!! You did a great job. We are very excited.
Eileen Glass, Atlantic Development Group
Just wanted to let you know that Dawn at API is the real deal. Her and her company got ADS licensed in Florida and Georgia in less than 2 weeks and without all of the hassle of other I've dealt with before. I would highly recommend using Dawn and API for any of your dealers looking to get licensed in states that they provide that service.
Curtis Kindred, American Defense Systems
On behalf of everyone at All Brothers Roofing, LLC I would like to extend our gratitude to
Carol Pasquarosa for her excellent, diligent, and quick work while working with ABR to get our
License Qualified. Carol went above and beyond for us, even helping out with matters unrelated
to our license needs. Working with the state of Florida was one of the most difficult things we
had to do and Carol made it much easier for us and we couldn't have done it without her. Carol
also walked us through the process to get our Bonds and certifications, this was a great help. I
would recommend Carol to anyone that needs her services. Thank you very much Carol we
greatly appreciate it!
D.E. Hall, All Brothers Roofing
Wonderful. Thank y'all so much for your help I will definitely keep y'all in mind for the future. It has been a pleasurable experience with you and your staff.
Nick Hall, PE
Thank you to all, I appreciate your help very much! You made the process less painful for me, although it was not completely painless. Without your help I am sure it would have taken me much longer to get through the process. If I can give you any referrals I certainly will.
Great news!!! Thank you so much for all of your help. You and your office are wonderful to work with. Chris and I have been studying very hard and will be taking our exams in August.
Thank you again for everything.
Mindy, Paradise Swimming Pools & Spas
Carol: You did a great job and I appreciate the amazing customer service! Thank you!
Wow!! Thank you very much for all that you do--
From the time I first contacted you, , you have been on top of each step. Not only that, if I asked you for an update, there was always an immediate response.
You enabled me to do my work in the field, with complete confidence that the State's requirements were being fulfilled on your end.
I felt through our conversations, that you were well aware of what it is like being in the field, what we go through each day with our Projects, and knowing how important that License is to us, no matter how many decades we have been working Construction, that unknowing of the State's requirements, were alleviated by your hard work
and today it has been fulfilled, with the issuing of my General Contractors License.
Thank you Carol for everything--you made my Day and more!---
Harry Seaman, Goodland Construction
I would like to take the time to say thank you to the staff at API, especially Carol. For preparing and monitoring my state application, which led to a quick process approval. I will definitely recommend you all to anyone who need guidance for their application process.
Thank you for the good news. Iím surprised it was so quick, I see that as a testament to APIís thoroughness, thank you. I am pleased in working with API and will forward my confidence in you to Construction Training Institute. They did refer you. I assume you will be in touch with CEU information. I am now looking for a company to assist me in filing my SAM (System of Award Management) with the federal government and am interested in if you have any referrals. Again, thank you for all of your assistance and I look forward to working with you in the future.
I was referred to API from a friend I meet in the GC class. I called around and spoke to 2 other contractor services and Carol gave me the most information over the phone and was very nice. I made an appointment with Carol Pasquarosa and I meet Kathy Ballam the same day which also was very nice. After going over all of my questions with Carol I decided she was for me. Carol and Kathy worked with me on getting my General Contractor License as fast as possible. Both of them always returned my phone calls or they spoke with me when I called and returned emails very quickly. I have already referred several people to API to deal with Carol and Kathy. I will continue to do so in the future. Thank you both for all of your time and help.

We cannot thank you enough for all you and your staff did to make it possible for Glenn to obtain his state license. We never could have made it without all of your diligent hard work. It was especially wonderful when the Board called for Steel Electrical Services and they had "No Questions" and just approved it. It was all due to your accuracy with all the information you supplied.
Again, thank you, you are greatly appreciated. God Bless.

“Thank you for all of your continued help in obtaining our license. I will recommend your services to anyone else I hear of who is looking to obtain a license in the states you service.”
“It was a pleasure working with your company to get to the finish line. I can honestly assure you that I would have blundered up the paperwork process so signigicantly if I were left to handle it on my own. It is such a critical license and heavily scrutinized, that it truly is imperative to use a service such as the one you provide. It's just that not all companies providing this service provide the personal touch that yours does. You made sure I did not forget anything, continued to follow up with my busy schedule. I can't thank you enough for your diligence, patience and well, at the risk of sounding redundant, just being such an absolute pleasure to work with.
Thank you so kindly - my company is elated! Please feel free to use my name for any referrals at any time. ”

I greatly appreciate your advice and involvement in rectifying the issue related to the nonconforming statement in the bank letter.
Based on my overall experience with API, I strongly suggest everyone not to waste time responding to unsolicited mail they receive for the application processing. Instead, they should consider hiring API for a smooth license abtaining process.”

Jill & Michael
“I just want to thank you again for your assistance in obtaining my GC license. After the horror stories that I have been told about dealing with the state, I am very surprised that we heard back so quickly and they didn't ask for any other documentation. The state had told me that the review could take 30 - 60 days, and to hear back within a week was outstanding. I truly believe it was your organizational skills and thoroughness that gave the state no reason to question the application. Your fee was a small price to pay for the time and aggravation I would have had. My license was activated in under a week. Exceptional!”
Kay Del Mar
“Can't thank you enough for all your assistance and unbelievably quick processing! I will be sure to recommend you to everyone.”

“Thank you & the rest of the team for all your hard work. You made the process a breeze."
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your company for an outstanding job well done on the process my application for a State Electrical Contractor’s License as you know the processing requirements have become much more difficult. Thank you for all the hard work and dedication that was put forth into obtaining my State Certificate. You and your company should be proud.

Have a great day."
“I wanted to commend you on your professional, accurate, and swift processing of my contractors certification.
You were specific and concise in your requests, did an excellent job communicating and following up.
I believe that it is all of these facts, that allowed my certification to be processed by the State in less than 2 weeks, instead of the 45-60 days that the State informed me the process could take. It was apparent that your work was so well done, that it simply few through the system.
Thank you very much
“Your Staff was more than helpful in this process of endless paperwork required by the State. Excitedly, I commend you and your staff after receiving my EC license after less than 30 days. This painstaking process was made effortless with your expertise. Again, I am grateful for a job well done. Sincerely”
