“I used both Brovelli architecture and construction and could not be happier with the results. Work was not only completed on time, but also on budget. I had already accounted for an extra 20%, but that money is still in the bank as Brovelli delivered exactly what he promised. The quality of work is outstanding and will be using him again when i decide to redo the kitchen. Don't think twice about hiring Brovelli for either architectural work, construction or both. You will only regret it if you use someone else.
FYI.... I have had plenty of bad experiences with other architects and contractors in the past. This experience gave me hope that there is still someone honest out there.”
“We hired Brovelli Architecture + Construction to design and build a major renovation and addition to our home. We had never done a major remodel before and Jim really guided us through the process. We loved that they were a design/build firm because it gave me confidence that the transition from architecture to construction would be seamless. Jim Brovelli was highly recommended by friends and neighbors and I wasn't disappointed.
We are beyond thrilled with our remodel and just love our newly remodeled home. I had some pretty set ideas of what the design should be but Jim pushed back where appropriate and we got a better design than we imagined. Jim is excellent at understanding how people live and making sure that the design matches how you really live. He helped us maximize our space.
He was also very thoughtful and careful that the money we spent on our remodel would increase the value of our home. If we suggested something that he didn't think would give us return on our investment, he said so.
The construction team was AWESOME! Not only are they professional and do high quality work, but they are also incredibly nice, easy to be around and were great with our kids. The job site was incredibly clean and they went out of their way to make it easy on us. I could have felt uncomfortable asking them to do little things like move furniture around as we navigated different phases of construction, but their attitude is “This is what we do. We want to make it safe and comfortable for you. We know that this can be stressful.” Honestly it was rarely stressful!
When we are ready for our next remodel, we will definitely call Jim and team!"
“We are SO thrilled with our “new” house. As architects and designers, Jim and Annalee were excellent listeners and helped us come up with a design that embraced what we loved about the “old” house while solving for all our frustrations. They were patient with our fence-sitting and what might have seemed like minor concerns or hesitations.
Once construction started, we were pleased with the pace of the project. Jim’s crew and all the subs were a delight to have around. Many people remark on how they “hate” having construction and all those people in their house, but the Brovelli Crew made it easy. They were positive, helpful, considerate and great with our kids. They kept the worksite clean and were amenable to our questions and requests.
The quality of the result is incomparable. It is more beautiful and comfortable what we expected. Thanks to you all for a great experience!”
"If remodeling is an art, not a science, then Jim Brovelli is the Van Gogh of Design/Build. His architectural skills are solid and he was solution-oriented throughout the process. He worked on the details of our design, even after we were satisfied, to ensure a positive result. His crew is punctual, diligent and respectful. We will continue to use Brovelli Architecture + Construction for our future projects.”
“Your creative design and attention to detail enabled us to remodel our home to be what we have wanted for years – warm, livable and spacious – without even expanding the original footprint. You really listened to us and understood what we were striving for, even when we didn’t have the words to convey our ideas. Your design is beyond what we ever dreamed possible. Working with you was a pleasure from start to finish, and we are thrilled with the lifestyle your design makes possible for our family. Thanks for making it all so easy and enjoyable.”
“...in the most sincerest of terms, we are truly grateful to you for having built such a wonderful home in which we can raise our children and enjoy a lovely life here in Marin.”
