Building or remodeling your home requires the coordination of a network of professionals including architects, contractors, engineers, and lenders. The interests of these professionals are not always directly aligned with those of homeowners. RCI Owner Reps, we specialize in representing homeowners to ensure their interests are directly aligned with a team of experienced building professionals.
We advocate for transparency to the homeowners and accountability by building professionals. We are singularly focused on streamlining the home building process to protect homeowners’ interests and realizing their vision for their homes.
Our team is comprised of former military, engineering consultants, and project managers from some of the largest organizations in the world which allows us to advise and direct a project from many different angles, providing our clients the information they need to make educated, smart decisions.
Building a new home or undertaking a significant remodel is a daunting task and frequently the largest single expenditure of a homeowner’s life. Oftentimes, the owner does not have the experience or time necessary to effectively manage a building project. Securing an owner-advocate to organize and shepherd the building process, loyal to only to the homeowner, is vital to protecting a homeowners’ interests.
At RCI Owner Reps, we specialize in bridging the knowledge gap between the owner and professional service providers. We simplify the building process by identifying and coordinating the team of architects, contractors, engineers, and lenders that will turn your vision into reality. We then manage the bid process and contract negotiations to obtain the most cost-effective build without impacting quality. Our goal is to protect your investment and vision, and achieve the highest quality outcome at the lowest possible price.
The project architect is frequently the first stop for an owner. Oftentimes, an owner looks to the architect to identify a general contractor. If there is a dispute between the owner and the general contractor during the relationship, it can reflect poorly on the architect and damage relationships with both parties.
Through RCI Owner Reps' involvement, the selection of the general contractor is simplified, with the input and suggestions of the architect, and the potential for dispute is greatly reduced. RCI's processes and procedures also ensure that any changes to the plans are done in a timely and orderly fashion with the architects input, minimizing inefficient and costly revisions.
ADVOCATE’s bid process focuses on transparency, identifying bid categories with precision, and tailoring work items to the owner’s preferences (allowances). Each bidder plays on a level field. All bids are “apples to apples.” Contractors no longer must worry about other contractors beating them on price by knowingly omitting elements they intend to later request by change order, and homeowners can guard against “padded” bids. Contractors and homeowners achieve predictability, which in turn creates efficiencies that reduce build time and costs.
RCI’s information gathering simplifies the construction-to-permanent loan process for all involved and can save a lot of time for lenders. We provide timetables, detailed plans, budget information, progress pictures, and any other fact gathering required on behalf of our clients. Working with "seasoned veterans" serves to grow the relationship and support the business needs of preferred lenders.
