What Our Clients Have to Say - A long term client

2RDS_blog_Sandy-B-Client-Testimonial copy.jpg

At RDS, we believe that designing a home is one of the most satisfying parts of our work. We love building relationships with our clients, and working with them to bring their dreams to reality. We want you to get an idea of what our clients think of their experience working with us. 

What was your experience with RDS – Residential Designed Solutions?
It was a good experience. The designs were creative and the designers were responsive to my requests. He worked hard to stay within our budget.

What space(s) did you have redesigned, (if applicable) or did you have a new home designed?
We expanded our family room, laundry room and storage closet using the existing garage. We built a new, oversized 2-car garage. We needed more space and thought about enclosing our porch and making it a 4-season room. But it was less money to use the existing garage and build a new garage.

What is the favorite aspect of your new home design?
It blended perfectly with existing house and did not appear to be an addition. The bricks match on the front of the home. We did change the windows so that they are all on the same line. Due to our builder’s expertise, all of the floors and woodwork match in the home.

If you could change one thing, what would you change?
There is nothing I would change.

What was your overall experience like?
It was an overall excellent experience. We are thrilled with the look of the home. Anyone looking at it wouldn’t even know that we did anything to the home. That was important to me. Jim and I have similar ideas, which made it easy to work with him. He was able to advise me with how to get the best bang for my buck. 

What advice would you offer to someone who is designing a home or redesigning a space in the home?
Take your time and revisit the plan several times before you finalize the plan.

Who else did you reach out to for designing your home?
No one.

Would you do it again?
Yes! Jim is actually helping us design our new home. We have a great partnership. Jim is very responsive. He is able to take my ideas and articulate them. We’re excited for our new home to be built!

We are so happy that this client not only loves her existing home, but is now building another home we designed for her and her husband. Let our designers help you make your dreams a reality. We’d be honored to work with you!
