Meet The Team

Our process begins with our sales and estimating team understanding your family’s needs, wants, and desires. We visit your home to gather measurements, photos, and review your architectural drawings. If you need an architect, we can connect you with the best architects in town. Tracie, our lead estimator, ensures clarity on budget allocation to make sure you are spending the right amounts in the areas that matter the most to you. Once the scope and budget align, we proceed to contract approval and deliver the project to our construction team.

Our dedicated Construction Team, led by experienced Project Managers Todd and Natalie, both architecture degree holders with 30+ years in high-end residential project management, ensures the seamless execution of your construction project.

They handle internal setup, communication, selections, changes, permitting, finances, and project organization. Recent additions such as Kelly, Ashlay, and Brian enhance our customer service efforts.

Licensed Builders and Construction Managers Glen and Steve, backed by Assistant Construction Managers Andrew and Andrew, bring over 30 years of hands-on experience to oversee quality, timely, and budget-friendly projects. They manage inspections, schedule trade partners, coordinate suppliers, and contribute hands-on expertise.

This collaborative team, driven by diverse backgrounds, consistently delivers exceptional results in both product and customer service. Their commitment to your project’s success and your satisfaction reflects our core values, backed by decades of building and management expertise.

WE DEVELOP OUR TEAM THROUGH LEADERSHIP VALUES

  • I take full responsibility for our customer’s experience.

  • I seek out and listen to customers needs in order to develop ideas and solutions.
  • I respond to customers in a prompt, courteous and knowledgeable manner with thorough follow-up.
  • I challenge or question the status quo or traditional way of doing things and am open to new ideas even when things are going well.
  • I go the extra mile. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish the job, plus a little more.
  • I keep things fun, the world has bigger problems than the daily challenges that makes up my work. I don’t take things, or myself, too seriously. I laugh often.
  • I listen generously. Listening is more then just not speaking, I am present and engaged.
  • I take responsibility for representing our values when communicating externally and internally.
  • My verbal and written communication is concise, thoughtful and effective.

  • I am able to overcome resistance to change.

  • I work to exceed expectations in every facet of my work.
  • I take initiative vs. always waiting for direction.

  • I recognize and congratulate others on their good work.
  • I take responsibility for developing and maintaining professional relationships with our team, service partners and customers.
