You should never trust a guy to do your kitchen just because he says they are good. And in our opinion all professional companies should have online presence for their customers to leave a review. Google the company that gave you an estimate on the job and see what people say about them. Do they get job from start to end leaving home owners happy or do they take more time and money than people expect? There are websites for customer reviews that help home owners understand the quality of reno companies.
