You need more than a builder — you need a creative, engaged partner

Design Built Homes, Ltd., offers something that people crave today: personal attention, service and accountability. A home is considered the largest financial investment in a family’s life, and they need someone who will respect the realities of the financial side of the equation and encourage their vision for the home that will meet their personalized present and future needs.

“You’re going to deal with me, not someone down the totem pole. You get a lot of handholding. It’s almost like we’re married,” she says with a smile. “We’ll talk to each other regularly so we can collaborate and give you what you want.”

Building a house is very stressful, she acknowledges. She recognizes that while any project of this magnitude will have some inherent challenges, it need not be overwhelming.

“I understand the dynamics and stress of building and moving.”

And her college degree in psychology speaks comforting volumes. That’s the way a home should be built, no matter if it’s a woman or man serving as the captain of the team.
