Who We Are

We are problem solvers.

We seek out properties with opportunity – we take the unusable, the obsolete, the damaged – and we restore function and beauty.

We are creative minded.

We see renovation as a form of art. Our designs are an extension of our personality. We design each space with the function and character that we would want in our own home.

We respect each house and its history.

We are incredibly passionate about the revitalization of Richmond City and its architecture – and consider ourselves fortunate to have opportunities to contribute to the preservation of historic structures. We believe that real estate and renovation are huge to the ongoing growth of the City, and we want to provide high end, historic renovations that maintain the history of the structure while adding modern conveniences to allow these homes and neighborhoods to continue standing for the generations to come.
