Everything looks great so far. I want you to know that I put my arm around Ngima, with the loud saw in the background, and told him in front of Linda, that of all the people who have worked on this job site over the last ten months, that Ngima is my favorite. He is the most professional, most skilled, most personable, most easy to talk to, most anxious to do a good job, of ALL the many dozens of workers who have been here. You are fortunate to have such a good partner!

Dear Patricia and Ngima,
This note is long overdue. Duane and I want to express our appreciation to both of you for the exceptional customer service and quality craftsmanship. We are very happy with our counter tops and with the recent repairs, the damage is much less noticeable. Thank you for all your work!
Thank you also for the incredible basket of gifts!! The birds in Santa Fe are beautiful and they were one of the first things I noticed upon arriving last summer. Now I can work on identifying and learning all about them! Really an awesome gift! Thank you very much!
We have and will continue to recommend Sherpa Stone.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday, good health, and continued success in the coming year!
– Sarah and Duane. S – (12.14.18)
By now I have spoken to you either by phone or in person of the changes that will take place at the Palacio Azul job site come December 31st of this year and my subsequent department from Santa Fe. You may have also received a letter from Zydeco where they introduce themselves and address their desire for your continued involvement with the project as well as your cooperation during and after transition phase. I would also ask you to continue providing the excellent skilled workmanship that you have in the past. It is my desire that the transition will be smooth and that the project continues toward completion with the same quality that has been provided to the owner over the past 5 years. It is with all sincerity that I thank you for your help in making the Palacio Azul project the quality development that is. I know and appreciate the fact that it would not have achieved the quality without your important contribution. I wish you and your company all the best in the future. Thanks again.

Hi Patricia. I just want to tell you how much I respect Ngima’s craft and expertise. It was inspiring watching him with the templating last evening. It took more time than either of us thought, and despite the late hour, his energy and devotion to detail never seemed to lag.
This whole experience has been a very satisfying one, to say the least!
I’m really looking forward to seeing everything in place. So, thanks again for all your help.

Dear Patricia, Ngima, and crew,
In this day and age it is rare to find a company that goes the extra mile to meet customer expectations. Sherpa Stone is a shining example of such a company. We are absolutely thrilled with our new soapstone countertops.
We did a complete kitchen remodel 10 months ago and made a poor choice for our countertops. They were difficult to maintain and left us short of having the dream kitchen we had envisioned. Clearly the choice was ours, nonetheless, we were unhappy with our choice. We decided to bite the bullet and made the decision to replace the counters with soapstone, a stone we had in one of our previous homes. A web search led us to Sherpa Stone and thus began a wonderful experience with a great company.
Patricia came to our house for a consultation and worked with us to find the most affordable solution for our new counters. It was obvious that she was an advocate for us, the paying customer, and offered suggestions that brought the cost in line with our budget. Ngima came out to make the templates and allowed us the privilege of hearing his life story about his journey from Nepal to Santa Fe. Both Patricia and Ngima made us feel as though we were partners in this countertop adventure.
What a thrill it was to pick out the slab and be involved in the template placement to achieve the look we desired. To be involved in this part of the project was a new experience and one that deepened our feeling of being more than customers. The end product was truly going to be of our design and desire.
Our kitchen was was a difficult retrofit as we had a very expensive and fragile handmade tile backsplash that needed to be preserved. The installation crew painstakingly removed the old counters and embedded stone without damaging the tile. They were talented and obviously craftsman in their own right. The installation required onsite adjustments which were made with precision and above all the crew was very careful to be neat and clean. When they left there was not a trace of dirt or debris, only beautiful new counters.
We want to thank everyone involved in our kitchen re-remodel. We will highly recommend Sherpa Stone to anyone who is contemplating new countertops. Each and every employee is talented and the craftsmanship is beyond compare. Thank you for allowing us to be partners in creating our dream kitchen.
With admiration for a job well done,
– Jamie and Shirley. G – (04.11.18)
The limestone table is magnificent and it truly hasn’t looked so pretty in its 30 years here at the house! Ngima is a master and his many patient hours, skill and level of perfection have brought the table back to life and it is spectacular, a real jewel.
Thank you! – Kim (12.11.2017)
Thanks so much for your donation of the incredible, gorgeous soapstone kitchen island counter. Quite the upgrade for our Zen Kitchen! Perfect color.
It inspired me to deep clean the kitchen to “bring it up to snuff” with the soapstone.
Everyone has been enjoying its beauty. I keep finding people rubbing their hands over its smoothness.
Blessings to you. – Sandy. A for Mountain Cloud Zen Center (Nov 2017)
I just finished applying wax to our new soapstone counters for the first time. WOW! They’re stunning! We absolutely love the rich, organic look and feel of them. We sincerely appreciate your expert advice and recommendations, Patricia, and Ngima and his crew could not have done a better, more timely job. 5 Star product and service! – Alison. M and Mick. S
Well, your boys did it again!
The guest house kitchen and bathroom stone looks great. You and Ngima should be real proud of the attention to detail and professionalism your guys have. They also spent the last hour cleaning up, which not all contractors do as you know.
Thanks again and please pass my thanks along to the guys who were here. – Jim
Lets do it! You have been so professional and pleasant to work with. I haven’t received my other estimate yet, but I feel so much more confident that Sherpa will get this project beautiful with all of the challenges. I’ll sign the paperwork and drop off later today.
Thank you. – Amy
“Simply a thank you call. Glad we worked into your schedule, but especially thank you for the restoration Ngima has done on our stone. We feel like it’s new again. He always leaves us with hints on how to care for it better. It’s a good program to be on your care system. I can’t emphasize how much we appreciate Ngima’s work. Thank you again…” – Annette. S (Los Alamos)
… and Red Shimmer counter tops!
Thank you so much for your expertise and efficiency in seeing that the job was completed on time and the results so beautiful. Ngima and his crew did a fine job, and both of you were courteous and steady even when I was not. (I don’t know who that rude person was, but it wasn’t the normal me!)
Every morning I smile when I see my beautiful red kitchen. I could not be happier with it. Thank you.
Sincerely – Janet. S
Thank you so much for your understanding; willingness to help resolve this issue. I truly appreciate all that you have done. If you ever need anything that I could help with please ask. I would also be willing to provide recommendations if you ever need them. – Blessings – Letitia

To All at Sherpa Stone
Thank you for all the work on my lovely new surfaces. They are all beautiful. I haven’t seen the final affect of the new master bathroom counter tops and window sill – the other work is still 2-3 weeks from being done. However, I know they’ll be stunning.
I’ve been taking pictures of the remodel process in the master bath – Let me know if you’d like to see any of the photos once it’s all done.
Regards – Kathy. L

The more I live with the new counters the more I love them. I really feel the quality of the fabrication is just unbelievably nice. I am so happy with my choice and you have been easy to work with. Ngima could not have been nicer as well as the other Installers. So I appreciated very much all the work you did on my behalf. Thank you.
Joyce – Sept. 2015
What a treat visiting with you this morning at Sherpa Stone! And then you added to that by gifting us the soapstone piece we offered and are using as a top on a funky little table (the base is from France). Acts of kindness in this day and age are most special. Carolyn and I thank you all.
Wendi: Sherpa Stone… “rocks” … as our kids say! But, you know that!
Thank you again Patricia.
All the Best, Jim and Carolyn (08.20.2015)
I cannot tell you how thrilled Phil and I are with your new counters. They are gorgeous and I thank you so much for all you did to get them made in such and expedited fashion.

How rare and delightful for something to cost less than estimated! But the most wonderful part is how fair, reliable and excellent everything from Sherpa has always been. I know I’m in good hands and never worry when you and Ngima are on the case. This new counter top makes us SO happy!
I will definitely go to Angie’s list to leave a heartfelt review.
Thank you so much,
Joyce – March 2015
I just wanted you to thank you for finding my studio kitchen sink and helping accommodate our renovation. Every day I use it I am grateful you didn’t compromise and found the perfect sink to go with the countertop. We all love having a better space to make our lunch and have tea/coffee.
Bests for the New Year!

We are very much looking forward to seeing the finished products,
Thanks again – Sheryl (04.02.14)

I would like to thank Sherpa Stone and particularly Ngima and his associate for the work they did yesterday….. They installed two new sinks into the kitchen… they started work at 1:30 and worked until almost 9:00pm. They left the kitchen spotless. The work ethic was truly remarkable and the quality undeniable.
The large sink fits the kitchen and the space extremely well and no cutting of the sides of the cabinets was necessary… just patience and talent.
Sincerely, Regina. R (October 4, 2011)

Patricia & Ngima ~
Derek and I are so pleased with our new kitchen counters and equally impressed with all of you at Sherpa Stone.
Sherpa Stone – beautiful product, wonderful and talented people.
We are nearing completion of a substantial and necessary condo renovation (began as a major mold remediation project). As we began to redesign our tiny galley kitchen, we made a decision to invest in seamless natural stone for our countertops. Sherpa Stone was our first and only stop. We met Roslyn at the showroom – she was professional, pleasant, and very knowledgeable. She was quick to learn al the facts about the project and asked questions that would steer us in the right direction of remnants and slabs meeting all our needs (technically, aesthetically, and financially). During the process of shopping for the stone for our kitchen counters we had the privilege to meet and work with owner Patricia Garcia. With Roslyn and Patricia’s help we finally settled on a gorgeous Crema Bordeaux slab.
At this stage in the process, in comes Ngima, master artisan and Patricia’s partner. Ngima’s first visit to our home was to create a custom template. He measured, re-measured, and noted every nuance of this tight space. Next (a few days later), we joined Ngima at the shop to decide the layout. He was ready with the slab and templates he laid out in front of us. It didn’t take long (with his expert recommendations) to decide on the layout. Finally, about a week later, he was back with a crew to install the final cut, polished, and finished product (that was Nov. 9, 2012). I think Ngima may have learned the Leave No Trace technique in his life before Santa Fe – other than the beautiful, shiny, new countertops, there was no evidence of a construction crew having been there.
Visible from the entrance and adjoining living/dining area, our Sherpa Stone kitchen countertops have become the Wow-factor of this renovation! I would recommend Sherpa Stone and its incredible people (Rosyln, Patricia, Ngima and crew) to anyone about to embark on a home renovation or a new construction project.
-Joan and Derek – Nov. 2009
Another glorious granite counter! I hope you all had a chance to see the email photos!
All the best & thanks again!

I wanted you to know how impressed I am with the way you run your business, the time you take with clients to help them know all their options and responsibilities, the materials you have on hand to show how the slabs actually are and the straight forward arrangements for scheduling and working together. I hope we will have the opportunity to do business with you in the future.

It looks great!
We were very pleased in the time and care and expertise you provided to us in selecting not only type of countertop material that would suit our needs, but also in the actual selection of the matching pair of slabs that were transformed into our counters. You did an excellent job in templating the countertops and then cutting, shaping and polishing them, as well as installing them with the undermount sink we had selected.
Thank you so much for your hard work and help, and feel free to use us as references for future clients.
Douglas and Linda. B
