Architect reviews in Redwood City

    Mort is fantastic. Very personable, experienced, and insightful. We ended up going with a different architect for other reasons, but I would certainly trust him to create a fantastic design. Mort met with us and listened closely to our project aspirations and motivation. He was very practical and honest, as well as creative in helping us think through what was possible.

    We are very happy with our house, and our experience with Joe. We interviewed multiple contractors - Joe was straightforward, friendly, gave his honest opinions, and was knowledgeable about the work that needed to be done and the area our house was in. We liked that he has his own team, so we saw the same guys working at our house all the time, and got to know the crew. Joe and his team did everything they could to achieve our vision for the house, suggesting ways around problems that popped up as we opened walls, and giving us pros and cons as we made decisions. He always listened to how we wanted things done, and if anything got mixed up in the execution, ensured the team made it right (for example they installed the wrong handles on the closet door but had it fixed within a day). Joe also went above and beyond after the team had technically finished, coming back to fix minor things as we encountered them upon move-in (a drip in the shower head, patching a spot we knicked moving furniture in). He was even kind enough to come out and replace the fuse in our furnace when we blew it trying to install a smart thermostat, despite him warning us prior to be careful about that very thing. :) We are 98% thrilled with the work Joe and his team did - our house is beautiful, and even more importantly, up to code, sturdy and safe. The other 2% is because we are perfectionists, so there are a couple things here and there in the final finishing touches that were rushed at the last minute and we wish were more precise (things like crooked door handles, backsplash that is just a millimeter or two short of the counter edge, faint paint splatter on the wood floors in one corner). Overall, we highly recommend Joe - his construction knowledge, years of experience, and awesome team made for a smooth project despite it's large scale. We can't believe this beautiful house is ours to live in. Thank you Joe!

    M&M Construction & Home Design
    Throughout our entire process we received incredible customer service and support. Communication was outstanding with weekly and daily contact from our site manager during the project. Overall the build was amazing value with high quality finishes even with adjustments to plans and specifications. The process was very efficient, taking 14 months from first day on site to handover even with extreme wet weather at the end thanks to our very efficient site manager. We would highly recommend M&M Construction and Home Design for those choosing to build their dream home in a cost effective and timely manner

    Overall, the project went very well. The drawings had to be re-done (not Manuela's fault but due to my changes). That added to the overall cost of the project. My contractor needed a lot of hand holding and didn't pay attention to the drawings, so Manuela had to step in and do a lot of project management with him (also added to her costs). I was extremely happy with the outcome and the house looks great! Manuela listened to me, understood my taste, and what my desired outcome should look like. She translated what I wanted, added her ideas and expertise, and really took my 1950s small ranch into the 21st century. The house feels so much bigger due to her thoughtful design. I am so pleased with the transformation! Additionally, Manuela could NOT have been more professional and responsive. As we all know, remodeling is stressful and not everything goes according to plan. Manuela was always calm and collected, even when I was not!

    Joe is THE best. ��I feel so incredibly blessed that I stumbled upon him last year via Angie?s List��? Joe will be��MY CONTRACTOR FOR LIFE and I now consider him to be a valued friend. ��I couldn?t have asked for anyone better, and I can?t imagine trusting contractor more than Joe. ��In the past year I have completed 3 projects with Joe��? 1 was a complete teardown / new construction, 1 was an extensive gut and reconfiguration, and 1 was facelift on a rental unit. ��My conclusion is that I would trust Joe with any job, big or small. ��I never write online reviews, but am making an exception because Joe is the best and deserves the praise!

    • CLEAR COMMUNICATOR +��SUPER RESPONSIVE.�� Joe is great about setting expectations, explaining the remodel process, presenting issues along the way that require decisions to be made, and just generally providing status updates. ��Joe is very responsive to calls and texts.

    • SHARP! ��LOTS OF COMMON SENSE +��CAN IMPROVISE WELL.�� ��Joe is very on the ball. ��He remembers everything. ��His mental math is awesome. ��He manages his crew with ease.����Joe knows how to��roll with the punches and troubleshoot problems and over come obstacles as they come. ��Whether it?s a delay in a vendor delivery (he?ll figure out how to expedite it, source it somewhere else, or shift the workflow so that it minimizes delays), or a part that doesn?t fit (suprise! the special fixture you ordered doesn?t fit. ��that?s ok, Joe will figure out how to customize it to work), Joe knows how to come up with creative solutions, how to present the options to client, and how to push the project forward. ��I wish everyone I met was as competent as Joe! �� ��

    • GUIDES + PROTECTS HIS CLIENTS.�� Remodeling for the first time can be overwhelming. ��Joe will guide you every step of the way, will make sure you avoid common pitfalls, and will make sure other vendors don?t take advantage of you. ��If you?re being overcharged, Joe will steer you towards a better vendor (e.g. this happened with my��Caesarstone��countertops). ��If your given shoddy product, Joe will help negotiate with your vendor on getting a refund (e.g. my cabinet vendor sent me garbage. ��Joe helped play good cop (me) bad cop (Joe) with the vendor. ��And this was all because I didn?t listen from Joe from the beginning on which cabinet vendor to go with!). ��There were so many times in the last year when other vendors were incompetent and Joe swooped in to the rescue, going above and beyond his responsibilities in order to bring ease to his client. ��Even if it meant fixing the mistakes of the outside vendors that I hired! ��I?m so thankful that I had Joe to watch my back. ��

    • KEEPS THE BALL ROLLING. ��Other contractors drag their feet and are slow at getting work done. ��Joe isn?t like that; he?s great about making sure the project is always pushing forward. ��Otherwise, he gets ants in his pants! ��That?s not to say delays in schedule won?t happen (that?s the nature of construction); but you can generally trust that Joe will keep the ball rolling without you having to micromanage. ��

    • INTEGRITY. ��Spend some time with Joe and you can tell that he is a man of integrity. ��He is honest, hardworking, and committed to doing what?s right for his clients. ��He is a man of his word. ��

    • QUALITY.�� You can trust that Joe will do a good job and stand by his work. ��He is detail oriented. ��If you?re not satisfied, he will go back and fix it until it exceeds your standards. ��If anything goes wrong, you can trust that he will come back to make it right. ��

    • HARDWORKING. ��Joe and his guys have some serious work ethic. ��You?ll never catch them slacking. ��They work Mon - Sat. ��Joe is a workaholic, so as clients we actually need to to tell him to take it easy!��

    • KNOWLEDGEABLE.�� He?s got experience you can trust.

    • PATIENT. ��Joe never gets impatient, despite my million questions, or despite me waffling about a design decision. ��He also understands that some decisions take time to mull over, and so he won?t rush you if you need more time to think about it (though he will let you know if it will gate the schedule).

    • PRIORITIZES CLIENT SATISFACTION.�� Joe will go the extra mile to make his clients happy. ��If you ask��?Hey Joe, do you think you could do [X]? you can bet that he will do what he can to make it happen, even if it?s adds complexity/headache/time on his end. ��He?s not looking to cut corners and do what?s easy; he?s looking to do what will make the client happy. ��Joe is very much a��?yes? man and has a can-do attitude. ��If the request is within reason, he will make it happen; if it?s not within reason, he?ll work with you on pricing it out.

    • POSITIVE ATTITUDE, ��GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR! ��Working with Joe is FUN! ��

    • TRUSTWORTHY +��SAFE. ��Joe?s workers are good, honest guys who you can trust in your home. ��

    • VERY FAIR PRICING.�� I trust Joe will be more than fair in any quote he provides.

    • BUDGET CONSCIOUS.�� Joe is good about reminding you of what your original budget was?you?ll still blow past it (not his fault. ��your fault for growing the scope!), but he?ll work with you to stay within your hard limits. ��In my case, for the rental units, he was good about reigning me in on changes that I didn?t need so that we could focus on the updates that mattered.

    • PUNCTUAL. ��Never late. ��

    The best decision I made in 2015 was selecting Joe as my contractor. ��

    Golden Sky Construction & Landscaping Inc
    We hired Golden Sky after meeting with  and receiving bids from several well known Licensed, bonded and insured, local contractors.   Bill and his crews arrived on time every day and left the site clean and free of debris at end of day.  Work progressed rapidly, with well trained, polite workers, (all of whom are employees, so we did not have to deal with sub-contractors or liens on our property).  
    Prices are very competative and  the quality of the design and the  construction work was exceptional! Job was completed early with no cost overruns!  I heartily recommend Golden Sky Construction and Landscaping.3969

    He did excellent work for us. They helped us come up with a customized remodel for our house. They were patience with us and they listened. They did not try to impose their thinking on us. He came out and sat down with us and asked if we had thought about this. We told him that we did not want to because we did not have the money for it. They helped us to conceptualize what we wanted. By doing different exercises, like writing out a narrative to what it would be like when we walked into our newly remodeled house. Then they did an excellent job putting it down on paper. I would use them again and they are expensive. The contractor said that he would have done the plans without charging us, I did not believe him.

    I would recommend Valentina to anyone. She was wonderful to work with-she listened to our ideas and looked at pictures we liked and then created two designs that were both so great we didn't need to make changes to anything. She has a great talent for listening to her clients and turning their fuzzy, sprawling ideas into concrete, beautiful realities. She was very patient, attentive and responsive, always returning calls promptly and when she would leave a message she would clearly leave the day and time that she called along with the message. I loved that! Along with other examples of her work, such as her design plans, it showed me that she is detailed and precise with ALL aspects of the job; she shows the same level of attention to every step of the project and client relationship. So far we have used one company to complete the work that she referred to us and we are more than happy with her recommendation. She is also very willing to work with contractors that we had already chosen. Valentina takes pride in her work and the love for what she does is very evident. You can trust that Valentina will treat your project with the same level of attention that she would use for her own home. I wish our project was done already so I could post before and after photos but I didn't want to wait that long to get word out about Valentina. Whether you would like an Italian style home, something very modern, or anything else, Valentina has the talent to make her clients dreams a reality(She also does interior design, landscaping, lighting, kitchen and baths, space planning, custom designed furniture, materials selection, staging, restaurant and salon designs).

    My experience was similar to that of the report of July 25 2008. I called the architect to inquire about obtaining his input on a project that I have in mind. He said he was leaving on vacation and didn't have time to talk but would call when back when he returned. He never did call back.

    Like any project of this nature, there were a few bumps in the road. However, each was promptly dealt with to my satisfaction.
