“Mike's expertise and creativity turned the house we wished for into a reality. The questionnaire he provided to us really helped envision our new home and understand exactly what we wanted. Mike made sure he kept our priorities in mind. He was a good listener, offered a lot of practical advice, and worked hard to find solutions when challenges arose.
Throughout the entire project, Mike had our best interest at heart and would voice our concerns to our contractor in a way they understand. We are very glad to have hired Mike. He designed a beautiful home that we love and often receive compliments about from neighbors and passer-by.”Mark & Ann - Los Altos, California
“What we appreciated about Mike wasn't just his vision but his integrity. Mike never made us feel like he was all about the money, making a fast buck off of us.
Mike was totally committed to our project and would come help me thru the implementation phase of construction. His price and billing is more than fair. He was worth every penny and more. I don't think you will find a better architect.” Dan - Los Gatos, California
“We are completely happy with Mike and his "out of the box" thinking. We can't say enough nice things about him, he is great. I went into the project having strong ideas about what I wanted because I love interior decorating.
Mike was able to listen to my ideas and create a vision that was totally perfect for our family, far exceeding my expectations. Mike's budget was almost exactly what we spent. He was really good about working with contractors and keeping the bids in line for us.”Kelly - Los Gatos, California
“Sometimes we are going so fast during our meetings that I forget to tell you how much we appreciate your help on our house. From arches to lighting and everything in between, your input has made our house 50000 times better than it would have been without you.
There is no detail that hasn't been improved by your talented touch. We are so glad that you were part of our remodel. We are beyond thrilled.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.” Eric & Holly - Los Gatos, California
“I think what most people comment on when they come to the house is how great the new space is for entertaining. It feels really big, but we didn't have to scrape the house or add a second story.
The floor plan has worked out really well for hosting anything from fancy dinners, to kids sleepover birthday parties. We definitely want to thank you for that! ” Lindsay - Los Gatos, California
“Working with contractors in the construction business requires strong communication skills.
From the bidding process throughout the construction process you facilitated an outstanding working relationship between all parties involved.
We appreciate you talent and genuine interest in our project and would be pleased to recommend your services.” Scott - Campbell, California
“When we began our master suite addition by interviewing architects, we had in our minds what we thought to be the only feasible plan. You listened to our ideas and assessed what our needs were and came up with an original plan that we had not considered. Your display of confidence, unique ideas, and ability made our decision to hire you.
We appreciate the enthusiastic atmosphere you created during planning meetings. You let us communicate our ideas but kept us on task. We looked forward to our meetings. You worked well within our budget making suggestions on how to cut costs.” Barbara - Campbell, California
“Over the last 5 years I have had a number of occasions to need the services of Mike. I have always found him to be very professional and competent.
His judgment in areas of cost verses desired outcome has been especially helpful. As a homeowner I wanted it "ALL".
Mike gave me options that were very reasonable as well as beautiful.” Ed & Kathy - Los Altos, California
“We have worked on 6 major renovations in downtown San Jose and Los Gatos with Mike, all of which were architecturally significant and/or historic. Mike always thinks "outside of the box" and creates amazing space plans that utilize and optimize the space available. His design sense and attention to details are impeccable.
Mike has been very effective in working the approval process on all our projects. He works very fast, does not waste his time or ours and is sensitive to and responsible in keeping the project within the scope of the budget! We love Mike and highly recommend him. I am sure I will do more projects with him in the future.” Grant & Robin - Los Gatos, California
“Mike brought the highest level of energy, innovation and team leadership to our project.
His quick, on the spot alternative solutions to field conflicts and last minute (owner-elected) changes were especially helpful.” Teresa - Los Gatos, California
“My wife and I are both "visual" people - Mike's 3-D sketching abilities were a big plus to us.
They allowed him to quickly communicate ideas and alternatives to us before and during construction.
Mike clearly has a passion for creating beautiful and functional architecture and was a lot of fun to work with too.” John - Los Gatos California
“Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the outcome of our remodeling project, and in particular your design work. The upstairs space is just what we had in mind and suits our lifestyle perfectly.
We have had a steady stream of admirers come by to see the house (some even drive by and stop in the middle of the street) and recently the owner of Los Gatos Porch told me he thought our house was "the best remodel in town".” David & Joan - Los Gatos, California
There are many reasons we can wholeheartedly recommend Mike. First, his creativity is unsurpassed! He always seemed to find the perfect solution to every issue we encountered during our remodel. He would listen patiently to our needs and ideas and offer several practical alternatives.
Mike is personable and easy to work with.
His hands-on approach was exactly what we needed to not only design the home of our dreams but to make it become a reality. He worked seamlessly with our contractor and designer. His depth of experience with the planning, permit and inspection processes also proved to be extremely valuable! Last, but certainly not least, Mike's fees were reasonable and fair. We are thrilled that Mike was our architect!".” Nels and Doreen, Monte Sereno
