Design ReImagined, the Design / Build company that is taking the Jersey Shore by storm offers what no one else has been able to accomplish. They conceived a new format, what they describe as a “Concierge Approach to Create Your Dream Home”, which provides for the Acquisition of Land, Financing for the project, Architectural Design and the Construction of your Custom Home.
“What sets us apart”, says Architect, Paul Rugarber, “is our ability to provide all of the services needed for the entire project from beginning to end. We work exclusively with clients who want to make their dreams a reality, and who appreciate our trusted team that can guide them through our unique process from concept to move in day!
What began as a common complaint from clients, that there was no one that could tell them all of the steps involved and all of the costs involved, grew into a business, to meet this need. Design ReImagined was formed to provide this service to their busy clients, who lacked the time to research, interview, and meet with all of the professionals needed for these custom build projects. Now, clients have one company that offers an expert team of award winning professionals – trusted advisors, that they can turn to with confidence that their dreams and goals are realized.
Realtor, Cindi Leonard, loves the Jersey Shore and explains, “when clients come to me, they want to know what is possible on a piece of property to either renovate or knock down and build new. Being part of this team has allowed me the ability to access those answers and to be able to provide our clients, exactly what the potential for the property is, how long the project may take, and what the overall investment will be. It really is a Unique Solution for our clients.”
One of the common first questions is the total project investment from a client. Monique LaValette, the Financial wizard part of the team is able to determine what they can invest based on their preference for using cash on hand, investments, or financing for all or part of the project. She says, “our clients typically have a few options for how the deal can be put together, but they don’t know what will work out best for them in the long run. Providing this guidance up front allows them to proceed smoothly, knowing all the pieces are in place. This peace of mind is important in todays market.”
When the land and financing are in place, what is the next step? Paul Rugarber, who has been awarded Architectural Firm of the Year for the Jersey Shore and Architect of the Year for the State of New Jersey pauses, laughs and exclaims “The Most Exciting Part of the Journey! This is where the magic happens, where I get to sit down with the client and we discuss their dreams, needs, wants, and vision for the future. Its fun, interesting, and exciting to see an idea go from words to sketches to drawings to renderings and then to the built environment. We provide virtual walkthrough’s of the project so that clients can see everything that is going into their home and make decisions up front to facilitate the construction process and schedule. Guiding the client through the entire process and seeing their smiles as the project unfolds is what makes this profession so much fun for me.”
The last step is a big one as this is what takes the architects drawings through the towns permit stage and into the project site where it unfolds. Randy Laing, one of the master builders chimes in “Up to this point, besides providing the guidance and pricing needed, we have been relatively quite, but now the pressure is on us to produce this dream home. Coming from a family of builders, this is the part that comes easy to me as we have such a process driven company, which allows us to schedule the move in date with confidence. Having all of the tradespeople working in house allows us to control the schedule better than anyone. “
Having two builders is another aspect that sets this company apart. Michael Patrick Baine, master builder, is ingrained in the Jersey Shore culture and as he puts it, “Is excited for each new build to begin, to be able to finally see this dream home brought to life.” The client experience is “what we all do this for, its what drives us every day to be a better company and most importantly, better people.” This is evidenced in the exquisite care and detailing his team puts into every project. You may just find him strumming his guitar, enjoying the fresh salt air as he ponders the details of his next build.
Born out of need to fill a void in the marketplace, Design ReImagined and their team of trusted experts have become the authority for a unique building experience at the Jersey Shore. The care and professionalism which you are treated, are unparalleled in the industry, setting a new standard in the design and construction industry. This level of care and commitment is what has earned this team the respect of their peers. Seeing their process firsthand makes you realize this is something you have not experienced before, but will want to tell your friends about, and we all know there is no greater compliment than a word of appreciation from someone we trust.
Paul closes with “the beginning of our process is our online intake form, which becomes the basis for the entire project and gets things rolling. Its quick and easy and everything progresses naturally for a Smooth, Seamless Process from there, keeping the client informed at every step along the way. The last step is the moving in and turning over the keys for another spectacular project. In reality, we are never finished as we service all of the homes we build. This is a lifelong commitment for us and our clients. Come see what we are all about it, after all …….
