I am writing to recommend Chris Stanton as an Owner’s Representative and Construction Manager. In 2002, we embarked on the construction of an estate in Sonoma County, California. At the time, we were splitting our time between Pennsylvania and San Francisco and were looking for someone to advise us, coordinate and manage our architect and builder during the two-year construction process, and look after our best interests.

Chris did an excellent job on all fronts, always looking for ways to increase the value and quality of our project while maintaining a firm yet collaborative approach with the rest of the team. His extensive construction knowledge and wisdom helped avoid some potentially expensive technical problems and delays. In particular, he was very helpful in pointing downsides to some of our architect’s interesting, but impractical ideas. Also his experience as a high-end builder steered us away from some products and vendors who were not equal to the task. His negotiation skills quickly resolved a few problems that did occur.

Chris was a terrific ally throughout the journey of planning and building our beautiful estate, where we now live year-round. I recommend him wholeheartedly and would be happy to talk with any of his prospective clients.
