    My wife and I were very anxious about doing a room addition. Jonathan was highly recommended by our building contractor and he just what we needed. He was great at helping us feel comfortable that we were in the right hands. He took our worry away when he told us he was aware of Laguna Beach requirements. He also gave of great ideas for the project which added greatly to the final product. All Architectural Drawings were completed when promised and accepted by the city. We highly recommend Jonathan and would use him again.

    We weren't originally going to have someone draw up plans, but after struggling with the permit process in providing the necessary information and drawings we decided to reach out for some help. We found Jonathan through this site and he was very responsive in early communications. We reviewed several architects and he was by far the most prepared and thorough in providing us a quote. In addition to creating a professional set of plans for us, the most helpful part was working with the city to get our permit, which was a major headache when trying to do it myself previously.

    Jonathan was great! He was efficient and thorough, easy to work with, and helpful at each step of my ADU project. I have never hired an architect before and Jonathan was completely open to my questions and suggestions. I never felt dumb for asking a question I was unsure of or that Jonathan wasn't taking into consideration the things I was suggesting from a design standpoint. I would say he is a customer-centric architect. He did what he said he would do when he said he would do it. He was always prompt in his responses and clear in what to expect next. I would hire him again in a heartbeat and couldn't recommend him enough for this kind of project. Thanks Jonathan!

    Jonathan was great to work with and helped me get my home remodel approved with the city in short order. I would use his services again and would surely recommend him to others.


    Jonathan was great. Not only did he prepare a wonderful design for us, he was very accommodating to our wishes and was always very responsive to any of our questions or concerns. Most of the time we received a response in an hour or two! We would give him and his firm six stars if we could! We have used many professionals over the years but Jonathan is the best! We would highly recommend him for your construction project.

    Jonathan Ma was great to work with. He was responsive, available to answer any questions via text, phone or email, and gave us good insight into the project scope. He would immediately respond to any inquiry, which I feel is extremely important. He provided us with design options on our home renovation project and gave us the pros and cons of each. There were some small issues/oversights that I noticed on the plans, based on my background in engineering that were quickly addressed and fixed. The only thing I would suggest to Design X Architects is to make sure plans are reviewed by in house drafters so that once they are sent to customers that are non-technical, the small oversights would get picked up and corrected before city submission. I highly recommend Design X Architects because of Jonathan's constant communication with me as a client and dedication to his work.

    Jonathan was very great to work with. He was very reliable and honest. I am building an ADU (Accessible Dwelling Unit), and the plans he had drawn up were very easy to understand. The City of Corona also liked the plans and were impressed by them. Jonathan is very professional and I will use him again for my other housing projects.

    He is very prompt in his replies

    Quick and easy! Great work and would definitely work with Jonathan again!

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
