What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I combine my architectural skills with my general contracting knowledge to make sure that we can perform high-level contracting services. We do an excellent job, we do it right the first time – and if something goes wrong we fix it. Period. As a woman I take great pride to be in the contracting field and I try to offer a different kind of remodeling service – one based not on greed and taking advantage of the customer, but one based on honesty and relationships first.

    We have only just submitted permits, but so far she is great! Prices seem to be right, and she has very good ideas. She also really knows what will or will not probably be approved and what we need to do to make sure it is. She's also very, very nice and easy to work with. She actually listens to what you want. She's very attractive too! Although that has nothing to do with getting my project done. :)

    Marcela and her team are amazing! She drew up a great quote and design. I relied heavily on her for suggestions. I gave her a vague idea of what I wanted and we went from there. The result is so beautiful. I can't believe it's my kitchen. We did all this with me being in California too! I can't imagine too many people I would trust to deliver a kitchen while I'm working 3000 miles away. We finished even finished early and on-budget. I walked in yesterday to see it was even more beautiful in person! Thanks again for being super professional and easy to work with

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
By being an architect I was often visiting jobsites to make sure that the plans reflected the reality of the job. I discovered that I liked the contracting world much better than being in the office sitting at the computer the entire day.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I was hired by a couple who wanted to sell their condominium asap, but the kitchen and the master bathroom were never remodeled. They wanted to be able to sell quickly and get better offers by remodeling before placing the property on the market. After we obtained the permits (in three weeks), we completed the construction process with custom cabinetry in two weeks finishing ahead of time and under budget.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure your contractors are licensed and insured. They should offer you a detailed written estimate, backed up by a contract. As a customer you have to protect yourself from people acting as contractors. You can visit the Florida Department of Business and Professional regulation page to make sure you are informed of the contracting lien laws.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
* What is the budget? * What is the concept design? * Are you aware of the time that takes getting plans and permits, before starting the construction process?
