5.0 Natalie G.

Amazing team to work with. Glue that held the project together. Professional and design perfect for family.

5.0 Natalie G. San Diego, CA

We love our house! Hiring GKDG was one of the best choices we made when we rebuilt our house. I was very impressed with Gretchen's talents and communication skills. Not only did she help us select all of our finishes and furniture, she was instrument in the overall design and space planning of the house. We actually chose her layout/plan over the architects. She was the glue that kept the project moving forward as she consistently communicated and managed the GC and vendors. I would highly recommend Gretchen and her team if you want to mitigate the stress that comes along with remodeling and designing a home.

5.0 Nevada S. Las Vegas, NV

Gretchen is actually incredible!!! She held my hand from beginning to full completion. Honestly not sure the project gets done without her and surly not at the level in which it was done. To put in to some context I list my full home remodel and partial reconstruction as a top 5 accomplishment in my life! (not sure if that's a good or bad thing lol) My particular project was a design and build. Gretchen was in front of the architect and helped me save a ton of money in that regard as she knocked out the design element in advance of them getting the project. With that said we did make significant changes along that way. I was able to bounce ideas off Gretchen throughout the process to create an enhanced version of my home. In this process she took the time to explain the effects some of the smaller details would make like using a Sub-Zero refrigerator would have over a basic one. It doesn't seem like much but there is not a day that goes by that I don't love the look of it looking like a cabinet! All in all Gretchen managed a 1800 sqft 500k cost project and it look like a million bucks!! She's a 10 Star!!

Gretchen was amazing. She was our designer and decorator for a full home remodel. Her depth and breadth of knowledge about her work, contractors and vendors really helped us in every phase. She is flexible, creative and price conscious when needed and you don t feel pushed into a decision and she doesn t make you feel awkward if you don t take her recommendation. We loved her so much that we referred her to my parents and she did their new place and it looks fantastic.

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.
