Alair Homes Arlington
A: I have gotten lots of very flattering testimonials over the years. My favorites are those that are reflective of what I strive to be – like the client who nicknamed me "Mr. Calm." Building and remodeling can be an emotional roller-coaster. Our team works hard to avoid drama in the project as we help our clients safely navigate the process.
Q: How do you employ new technology to help your clients?
A: Alair embraces technology in its simplest form to help clients throughout the building and remodeling process. It can be cumbersome for both the builder and client to navigate a software package that tries to be one-size-fits-all. Alair's custom software is designed so that customers can seamlessly track every hour, every dollar and every selection related to their individual project.
Q: What is the most significant change in architecture/building during your career?
A: Every year in architecture and building there is something new, and something old that becomes new again. Every client gets their information from slightly different places, and we help them separate what they have heard from what is realistic. This can be fun stuff – like discussing the merits of wood countertops – or technical – like explaining why you don’t need an extra vapor barrier on inside walls in this climate. It can even be procedural – like showing clients how to navigate Maywood’s historic approval process. In the end, the customer needs a trusted advisor that can honestly and transparently walk them through their options. That is what Alair does best.
