“Richard was more than a  pleasure to work with throughout our 3 year project. During the project, he always took the time to explain to us what our choices were and could be (outside the box) while offering his expert vision and advice when the larger picture of our smaller decisions didn’t seem to feel natural to us. His expertise in visualizing and communicating to us this big picture of the project was remarkable and invaluable.  The ideas that Richard came up with saved us thousands of dollars in potential construction and remodel costs and there was never any re-work required because of the forethought into our decisions. Richard’s workmanship and work ethic are first class. We trusted Richard every step of the way (even went on month long treks to South America during the project and left him at the helm) and are so thankful that we did. Everyone that comes into our house comments on how warm and inviting it is. We truly treasure the work Richard has done for us!”    -  Tom & Trista C., Incline Village, NV
“I was introduced to Richard in 1996 during the planning stages of my ranch project in Colorado.  He came highly recommended as someone with integrity and artistic visions beyond the normal craftsman.  Richard closed his thriving business in California and relocated to Colorado to assume the role of finishing contractor and specialist for our vast project.  A short time after arriving it became evident that Richard's skills, knowledge and experience in the construction field went far beyond just finishing.  He proved to be a valuable asset and seemed to have an uncanny technique of understanding our vision for the Ranch before we did.  As a result of his knowledge, vision and understanding, Richard became my personal project consultant and finishing specialist.  He became involved in every aspect of the project, from conceptual drawings, layouts, design applications, aesthetics, finishes, quality control, selection of materials such as wood, tile, custom fabricated granite pool tiles, stone, plaster and steel to cabinet design and construction.  He was also an integral part of the selection of fine art, artifacts, antique rugs and furnishings.  Years later, upon completion of the Ranch project and following our relocation to Scottsdale, Richard was called back to assist in the completion of our new residence.  From the moment he stepped in, it was as if he had never left.  He didn't miss a beat and knew exactly what needed to be done to accomplish the multitude of tasks at hand.  Again, Richard's abilities went beyond his finishing skills.  He was instrumental in designing our exterior cobblestone entry, pool rail concepts and design, iron work ideas and drawings.  He worked side by side with our construction and landscaping teams, designers and architects to convey our vision of this property.  I am confident in Richard and highly recommend his skills, opinions and exceptional work ethics for any project, large or small.”    -  David B., Paradise Valley, AZ
"I first met Richard in 1997 when we both worked at Bootjack Ranch in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.  I had the opportunity to work closely with Richard for over six years and to observe his remarkable hands-on finishing, project coordination and owners representative skills.  Richard is a highly experienced and competent construction consulting and management specialist.  He is extremely organized, efficient and continually multi-tasked numerous projects effortlessly during his tenure in Colorado.  His knowledge and efforts on the multi-million dollar project not only assisted in making the entire team more cohesive, but his knowledge and ideas in the long run alleviated a wide range of issues, while also managing to save the owner a considerable amount of money..  During Richard’s time at Bootjack Ranch, his ability to communicate well with all managers, vendors, contractors, architects and the owners proved to be an asset.  Many of those individuals remarked about his excellent skills, personality and the ability to complete any task presented to him in a timely and efficient manner.  Following our careers at Bootjack Ranch, I have had an opportunity to work with many highly skilled individuals in the construction field.  It is my opinion that Richard continues to maintain the extraordinary skills of not only hands-on master craftsmanship, but also consulting, management and Owner and Project representation as well.  Richard would be an asset to any construction company, but most importantly, he would be any property owner’s dream.  Richard can, and does, handle every detail for his clients, from project vision to turn key status, in any construction project." - Dennis B., Scottsdale, AZ
