Easy to work with. Showed up on time and provided drawings and support as requested. Would definitely use them again and reccomend to family and friends.

N/A Gary M. Elgin, IL

Excellent Architectural firm, with attention to details and they listen to what the customer wants. Outstanding firm, for large or small projects.

5.0 David/carol F. Elgin, IL

Brian & Andrea Korte were great to work with. We felt very comfortable with them and were very happy with how they listened to our vision for our new space and were able to add both knowledge and creativity to the process. We couldn't be happier with the results.

5.0 Crystal Lake, IL

Working with Korte Architecture has been a very positive experience. Brian worked through several iterations until the design exceeded my expectations. He took time to explain issues and answer the many questions I had about both the process and aspects of the design. HIs continual support of my desire to keep the project as "green" as possible both during th ebuild process and in the finished product. He was inovative when there were problems and he has continued to support the project through the build phase. I will use the firm again on the next project I have that requires design assistance.

5.0 Algonquin, IL

We found Korte Architecture to be easy to work with, flexible in our design, timely and a good value. We would definitely use them again or recommend to our friends.

5.0 Luc K. Vernon Hills, IL

Professional work on time and on budget ! Our expections were met !

5.0 Algonquin, IL

It has been great working with Korte Architecture. They came up with some great ideas for our project and have designed an addition that will look like it's always been a part of the house. They included energy savings and sustainable practices that were important to us. We are excited to break ground.

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.
