Partnering with Owners on Large Residential Projects

Representing Your Interests

Whether you are building from the ground up or renovating an existing space, construction of high-value residential property comes with certain risks and costs. The more complex your project, the greater those risks and costs may be.

We make it our business to represent your interests. We manage all aspects of the process to deliver the project you envision—on budget, on schedule, and in line with our profession’s highest standards.


Your high-end residential project team will include some of today’s most innovative and creative designers, architects and engineers.

What We Do


We document all aspects of your project to give you the views you’d only see if you were right there with us on the jobsite.

Very simply, we serve as Owner’s Representatives. We are meticulous problem solvers, resolving any number of challenges that may arise in the course of a demanding, luxury construction project. Actually, we relish this part of our job, always thinking on our feet, anticipating potential pitfalls and complications, and always standing ready with several solutions when problems arise.

How We Work

We work closely with our clients. Since there’s no one formula that works for everyone, we work very hard to determine what’s best for both you and your team. We see great value in face-to-face meetings but realize virtual meetings, texting, phone conversations, emails and apps are also efficient to deliver a superior finished product.

We take a collaborative approach with all members of your team, whether we’ve brought them on board or they’ve already been selected.


We meet in-person with contractors, designers, architects and the rest of your team to keep things moving forward and to address issues before they become big problems.
