Michael enjoys building a personal relationship with his client to assist them in developing the dream for their residence. This begins with reviewing with the client and/or realtor the purchase of the home or building lot. This would include reviewing home inspection reports and reviewing the needs of the client and comparing it to the possible property. Preliminary design and estimates are often provided. Michael takes charge of the design and budgeting process. He provides leadership and involves his team early in process of providing a detailed estimate.

Michael’s leadership results in a project that runs smoothly and flows well per schedule and within the estimate. All revisions are discussed and initiated per the client’s direction. Michael takes on challenges and handles surprises quickly and effectively on behalf of the client. The result is an enjoyable experience.
