Your Advocate

There are times over the course of every project when the homeowner benefits from having a knowledgeable and skilled advocate at hand. Many clients hire me to serve as their sounding board during the decision-making process, to act as their “eyes and ears” on-site as the project progresses, or to be their advocate when it comes to negotiating or conflict resolution. You can depend on me to be fair, collaborative, and to act on your behalf -- with your best interest in mind.  Learn More...

Defining Your Goals

Traditional or contemporary? Minimalist or “family friendly?”  No doubt you have as many questions as you do ideas! My experience has taught me to be a great listener – and problem solver. During our initial two-hour consultation, I will help identify your style. I can also synchronize your vision with that of your partner or spouse, pinpoint various family/lifestyle considerations, and develop a plan that fits your aspirations. I’ll answer your questions, address your concerns, and generate a road map to guide you through the process of creating your “dream home”.  Learn More...

Team Building + Referrals

The right team makes all the difference.  I provide a list of unbiased referrals, custom-chosen for you and the needs of your job. The architects, designers, contractors, engineers, sound and lighting consultants, permit facilitators, landscape architects, and furniture showrooms I recommend are top-flight. Because I have no financial ties to these professionals -- and since I do not markup their fees -- you’re assured that the team I suggest is the best fit for you, and ideally suited to your specific project requirements.  Learn More...

Budgets + Scheduling

You’ve heard remodeling horror stories. Most involve budgets that escalate out of control or deadlines that drag on forever. I can help you avoid these problems. I have years of experience working with professionals in every area of design and construction and I can guide your team to develop budgets and timelines that are realistic, cost-effective, and achievable. I can review proposals and estimates, offer suggestions for getting the most impact for your dollar, explain timelines, help you anticipate expenses, and estimate how long your project will take to complete.  Learn More...

Project Guidance

The professionals I refer are competent and experienced.  Still, there may be times when team members could benefit from objective, third party guidance. Some clients hire me for an extended period to oversee certain aspects of their projects during the design and construction phases. This can be particularly helpful if you are busy, are located out of town, or plan to be traveling during critical decision-making stages of your project. I can serve in your representative, acting as your “eyes and ears,” and providing you with informative updates and suggestions.  Learn More...
