Nina was great to deal with, easy to communicate with which was especially important as we lived some distance away. Her design ideas were very helpful and she was able to transform ideas to something tangible.

“We thought we needed just a draftsperson to draw up our Master Bathroom Remodel. We hired one, and the result was disappointing. I found Nina for Interior Design (she is also an architect), and brought her in to see what this draftsperson had come up with. She explained to us the design in 3D by walking us though, and we then realized why the other design did not work for us- cutting off the entry to light. She then re-designed the space to not move the toilet (which saved us a ton of money) and saved us money on moving the sinks to where there was already plumbing. She helped me locate a vanity online that saved us $3500, and solved the entry in a very creative way with light flowing down. The New Master Bath will have a frosted Wall screen that will flood the space with Southern light instead of closing it off in darkness. We highly recommend hiring Nina to work miracles with a budget and creative ideas-worth it to get a professional involved from the start that has a concept of the over-all picture!”

Review by in Langley, WA
Project: Draftsperson or CADD Expert (Non-Designer)
We hired Nina at Island Architecture to do permit and construction drawings for a new construction project. We did not need her in the full design and supervisory/construction admin role of a typical architect (although I believe she would excel in that role), we just needed to get our ideas on paper. Nina was extremely helpful and responsive. We are long distance from our project and she worked with us on Skype so we could make revisions to plans in real time (her 3d software is fantastic). Nina has a mastery of her technology that made everything easier. She also was extremely responsive and collaborative. It was really helpful to have her to bounce ideas off of and to get her opinion on some key decisions. We are very happy with the work and the service and wholeheartedly recommend Nina.

Project: Remodel a Kitchen
My job was very small, however I did need blue prints drawn up. It ended up making the job much easier & more successful.

Hired for a small complex project. Excellent work, detailed and complete. Nina even knew how to deal with the Building Inspector Department and saved us money on filing for permits. I would highly recommend her...

Seal of Approval

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
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
