Ariel Darmoni – Operations Manager / Principal
As Operations Manager, Ariel provides hands-on support for both our staff and clients. During his 16+ years in the construction industry, he has overseen hundreds of remodeling projects, many of which are in Chicago’s high-rise condominiums.
Ariel’s familiarity with the needs of condo associations, building management companies, and the tenants they serve gives 123 Remodeling an advantage over contractors who have not learned the ins-and-outs of these homeowners needs. As a project manager, Ariel’s creativity and practical knowledge truly stands out. See the partial list of his projects below for an idea of his abilities.
When not on a project site, shopping with a client, or meeting with suppliers, Ariel is playing soccer, walking his Chocolate Lab “Zena”, or spending time with his wife and family.

What do our Customers say about us?
123 remodeling was an extremely professional team. They had quality craftsmanship and were willing to work within my budget. I would recommend them to all of my family and friends.
I moved into a condo that needed a lot of work done to it. Gave me a clear estimate, we discussed a price that was reasonable and lower than some other people I had spoken to... Overall it was a really great experience.
