It’s all about people. Jeremy and Chris and the office team are the first connections, ambassadors. Once working with RM, your project manager becomes a highly trusted, positive champion of your new home, and maintains cordial relationships with your neighbors. The subs are eager to be responsive. The suppliers know your budget and priorities and have reviewed your plans before you visit the showroom. RM are positive and confident due to their experience, not due to a Pollyanna need to impress. Their aim is to build a fabulous house AND a lifelong relationship. They are 100% reliable and go beyond duty to make things right.

RM should patent their process—they advise the architects early in the design phase
which saves you time and money. They walk you through the entire construction plan and help you make all selections upfront. Then provide a fixed price that makes the actual construction period far more efficient and on-time (despite 29 days of straight rain early on). Personal attention is given to every request and change order, alleviating anxiety and making the process both educational and fun.

Here is an example of creative collaboration between client, architect and builder:
We asked for a glassed-in dining room that juts out into the woods. Cantilevered over a ravine with floor to ceiling glass on three sides would be lovely but the cost was prohibitive. Instead, with respect to our budget and our aesthetic sense, RisherMartin and the architects (SBV) put their heads together and came up with an affordable and beautiful space which has attracted several design professionals with its wow factor. They made our house economical by imaginative use of materials, by skillfully siting the house on a narrow, wooded lot that had its share of city code and topographical challenges, and by adhering to a thoughtfully planned construction schedule. Great care was given to protecting the trees and creek, resulting in a unique home that magnifies the natural beauty of the lot.
